Despite the fact that you’ll probably have to wave down a server for a menu, a carafe of water, to order - food and a second bottle of wine - Robert is still 100% worth visiting. The menu is full of seasonal vegetables grown at the restaurant’s farm in the Loire Valley, and you can choose from the “Garden Discovery” menu for €48 that includes a mix of the chef’s favorites or à la carte shared plates. We did the latter and tried the raw tuna with watermelon, tomatoes, and chives, a cold Ajo Blanco soup with kohlrabi dumplings, and a creamy cauliflower risotto with goat’s milk and black cardamom that three of us had to fight over finishing. Newly-added street seating makes getting a table at prime-time sans reservation a breeze, though this place does fill up. Still, if the online reservation system says they’re complete, which it did the night we went, give them a ring or just swing by to double-check.
