Great Cigar Friendly patio paired with a awesome Martini! Seafood Mac & Cheese hit the spot. Friendly staff and warm atmosphere. Will be going back when I’m in town!

Food was ok. Booth seating was very uncomfortable. Multiple Flatscreens promoting the menu extras provided a uniquely unpleasant atmosphere.

I really like RA Bistro. If this place was near my home in northern NJ, it would be twice as expensive. It has a nice, urban feel... clean dining room... nice menu, good prices. Definitely recommend it.

We'd heard that this place had some of the best burgers in town, so 2 in our party got their signature burger. It was a decent burger, but we were expecting it to stand out more. Perhaps a unique sauce was called for. Nice selection...More

The Robin Alexander Bistro is a very classy restaurant with moderate prices. This is the place my grandparents like to take us for special occasions. The food is very good, we've always had polite wait staff, and the atmosphere is nice.
