We had our wedding at Robin's in their beautiful gardens and our reception followed right after in the gardens and covered patio. It was all nothing short of magical. The entire process of planning for our occasion was seamless and enjoyable. The location, food, service and ambiance was just what we had dreamed for our special day. A HUGE shout out to Shelley, the events coordinator who was knowledgeable, friendly and always extremely helpful. Thank you! Robin's will always hold a special place in our hearts and fond memories.

I loved the food here, and the staff members were friendly and prompt with their service. I tried the grits and beef stew, though I believe they change up the menu frequently, so you might not be able to try the same. The stew was to DIE for. Were were also seated in outdoor/garden patio, which provided a great view with relatively romantic scenery.

What a disappointment! The prices were high; the food was
just OK, and the service marginal. While the restaurant looks attractive the
patio seating is not intimate, and the indoor seating seems cramped. Our waiter
seemed to have too much on his plate, and while he was friendly he seemed
distracted and mostly not available. The hostess exuded coolness, if not disinterest.
About half way through our meal she seated a family of four, two adults and two very young unhappy loud children at the adjacent able, which was about 12” from my right elbow! There were other tables available and the choice of this seating seemed insensitive and served
to put a damper on conversation. I would not recommend this restaurant. What
a dismal experience.

Meanwhile, two doors down, was the Dragon Bistro, and it was excellent on all accounts. The prices were reasonable, about $12 to $15 for a great and plentiful meal. The egg drop soup, egg rolls, and crab meat Rangoon were superb, the service was friendly and very responsive, and the setting was beautiful, with fine linen tablecloths, an environment that encouraged
conversation (soft music), and subtle lighting. I highly recommend this restaurant!

We stayed two days near Cambria so we had a full day to explore and try Robin's Restaurant. We were intrigued by the menu and it was pretty busy inside and that's always a good sign. The indoors is cozy and charming, there is nice romantic seating outdoors in the back.

We are healthy eaters so the menu was great for us. The lamb was incredible, the Israeli cous cous was great. We all liked our dishes. Some of it is a fusion of Indian, Middle East, and healthy American style recipes. The desserts were delicious as well as the lemonade. We sat outside at night and they had heaters on. We really liked the restaurant and it was really our style as we like to explore new style recipes and healthy food. We can see how some folks who have a more traditional palate might find it too much but we loved it.

The gluten-free enchiladas were the best we had ever eaten so I want to go back and "eat down the menu." What a friendly, fun place to eat with great ambience, fabulous food and excellent service.
