Dear Robin and Robin's Nest Restaurant and Catering,
Bernie and I had our wedding celebration at Robin’s Nest on July 27, 2018. While I have always tried to write testimonials whenever I have a great experience, I don’t recall ever being as enthusiastic to write one as I am for this occasion. I would like to share with you the reasons why that is!
Robin’s Nest did an OUTSTANDING job in every conceivable way. The presentation in the room was perfect, the food was very tasty and delicious and the service was outstanding. All of the comments from family members as well as friends were that the atmosphere was cozy and the food terrific. In other words, everything was SUPERB!
Another reason I was eager to write to you was primarily because of your exceptional Catering Manager, Doreen! I feel very strongly that fate brought me not only to Robin’s Nest but specifically to Doreen. She is really someone special. Doreen was incredibly easy to work with, gracious, professional and moreover, put my mind at ease from the very beginning which was most reassuring as it was at a time I needed it the most. Since the greater majority of people were traveling from out of town, it was important to Bernie and I that everyone will feel comfortable and welcomed. When the guests arrived at the restaurant that is exactly how they felt after they were greeted by Doreen. Doreen also made myself and Bernie feel extremely comfortable every time that we spoke to her as well as the few times we got together to iron out the wedding details up until the day of the celebration. Doreen did not disappoint. Doreen took care of all the detail as promised, was highly accommodating, and furthermore, guided me in the areas that I was not familiar with. Doreen was also very patient and answered all my myriad of questions (bless her heart!). I truly appreciated her honesty as well as her sense of humor in dealing with what was a somewhat stressful event for me! Both Bernie and I LOVED her!!
While our celebration was successful due to Robin’s Nest Restaurant, I truly feel the occasion was that much more special because Doreen was there to manage it. I cannot thank her and Robin’s Nest enough for making our special day such a wonderful success.
With our sincerest gratitude,
Eva & Bernie Kaufman
From an OpenTable Diner who visited from Philadelphia
Always a pleasure to eat at the Robin's Nest! The staff is friendly and welcoming. From the minute that you step into the door, you feel as though you've gone back in time. The food choices are creative and delicious. The pumpkin ravioli and caramel apple martini were the best way to welcome in fall! Truly divine!
Another review from a satisfied OpenTable diner
Let me start by saying Robin's Nest lived up to it's reputation. I've heard about it for some years and it had quite an image to live up to. That said, I'll start with saying RESERVATIONS ARE A MUST if you're going prime time or during special events. Three of us had dinner the night of Mt. Holly's Pumpkin and Witches Ball, which was unknown at the time of making reservations. Many unhappy people were turned away (although politely) since it was a full house. Staff were dressed up in various costumes. Our waitress was "Wonder Woman". It was all in fun, not obnoxious, and the inside matched the spirit of what was going on in the neighborhood.
Service was very good and the waitress considerate of my father needing more time to decide.
For an appetizer we had the Hummus Trio - perfect for three. It came with three separate hummus flavors, pita bread, and sliced cucumbers for dipping or spreading the hummus on.
Drinks were very generous (at the table we had two margarita's and something that had the word "Creek" in it).
For the entree, I had the vegetarian butternut squash with rice with vegetables. Fried, but with minimal breading on the outside, making it light and crisp. Soft and slightly sweet on the inside. Very good!
Another at the table had the chicken pot pie. It came out more like shepherds pie, with piped mashed potatoes on top, no crust (top or bottom). He loved it - very rich and with large chunks of real chicken (not processed). The other entree at the table was the Pecan Chicken. Also had rave reviews.
For dessert we split a cherry cobbler like pie and some amazing chocolate multi-layer pie concoction. Totally worth going, just for that dessert! All that said, the food was very good and a good value for the money. We all enjoyed our meals and the service.
A solid 5 star review from a first time visitor
This was our first visit. The menu has a lot of options and specials; everything sounded great. My husband had the short rib rigatoni for dinner and enjoyed every bite. I had the blackened tuna, it was done perfectly and delish. The soups and salads were also really good. Looking forward to going back.
