At RSK our food is made from scratch. We do not use any ready-made prepared foods. Our kitchen has no freezer. Food is purchased fresh daily. Meals are homemade in the restaurant kitchen just a few feet from where you are dining.

First off, we will go back, and try again. Service and greeting are impeccable. It's a BYOB which is always great. Salad...Caesar... was just ok, and my short ribs "fries", was tough. My wife's Sea Bass dinner was excellent, while my Seafood Risotto, was bland, and below average. There were other choices on the menu, and we will try again.

Roberts is a hidden gem! When you see it from outside you think nothing of the place. Once inside everything is amazing from the ambiance to the service and the outstanding food! This place never disappoints!

Have dined here numerous times.Last night was not one of their best efforts.Meal was oversalted and veggies mushy. I guess you can't hit a homerun every night. We will be back.

Robert's Scratch Kitchen never disappoints! Their knowledge of food allergies and the precautions they take are outstanding. I wish all restaurants followed suit. My daughter has celiac and I have gluten intolerance. It is nice to be at a restaurant where I know my daughter is safe.

The quality of the food and service is beyond excellent. Consistently fresh and the menu always changing providing a lot of interesting variety options. Their specials are amazing, never leftovers. In addition, their menu is completely Gluten Free, which you would never notice. I have never been disappointed.

The service, both the staff and the chief are very personal, and so accommodating.

Good atmosphere, good service. Food was okay, gave my wife and I 2-3 days of stomach issues. Good dishes and recipes, food quality didn’t seem to be ‘on’ that night.

The food was perfectly done we had the branzino it was excellent. The service was great . I like the idea of pictures of the food being displayed on the servers iPad. Ambience was pleasant as well . They also have gluten free desserts if interested!
Will definitely be going back. We went on a weekday but I imagine the weekends are packed . The place is small.

Been many times and never had a bad meal! And many quite exceptional ones. Last night the tuna special was a particular favorite. And when they say hot peppers, they mean it! The veal chop is always a winner. Brought friends for the first time and they were very impressed. We will definitely be back!

We were seated immediately, but extremely rushed through appetizers and dinner. So much so my appetizer was never brought out because I ordered a salad. My husband didn't order a salad but had an appetizer that was served with my salad. We didn't finish swallowing our last bite of entrée and we were asked about dessert with an Ipad flashing pictures so fast it was ridiculous. This Ipad technique was used for dinner specials also and it is unprofessional. Not an enjoyable experience. Too bad because the food was good.

I’ve heard many good things about this restaurant. The food was mediocre at best. Quite honestly, it was very ordinary, prices a bit high and service was decent.

I just love Robert's! Great service, ambiance, and food. Almost everything can be made gluten free - and they are happy to do it! Everything about Robert's is spot on.

The service was impeccable. They showed pictures of the specials when they were explaining which was a wonderful touch. They did it for the dessert menu as well. The staff were courteous and attentive without being over bearing. I’m allergic to gluten and they had plenty of menu choices for me. The restaurant is celiac friendly. I had my first dinner roll in a long time and it was delicious.

It was easy to tell the ingredients were fresh & of good quality but the preparation was somewhat bland & simple. Ambiance was energetic so in my opinion there is no need to play loud music which makes conversing more difficult than it should.

First time at this restaurant. Very good food. So excited that the whole menu is gluten-free. It was very noisy and we felt rushed.
We will go back, but during the week in hopes it won’t be as noisy.

Food was excellent. The entire menu is Gluten-free, except the pasta dishes, although gluten-free pasta is available as a substitute. Service was friendly and professional. Staff used I-pad to show specials photos while explaining the dish. Definitely will make this restaurant a regular stop.
