A word from Bobbys Deerfield
Bobby’s Deerfield is based loosely on our other location Café Lucci which we have developed over the last 17 years. Similar to Café Lucci, Bobby’s Deerfield will serve as a true neighborhood locale, marked by our signature personal service and unmatched friendly atmosphere. However, Bobby’s Deerfield will be a more casual eatery, completely accessible in every way. Reminiscent of the iconic, nostalgic neighborhood restaurant of yesteryear, Bobby’s Deerfield will bring graciousness back to dining out, in a simple way, by turning out the best product and best service.

    We've been to Bibbys several times and have enjoyed it each time....so naturally we thought of it when going out with friends who'd never been there . The food was fabulous as usual. Our server - well - he was much more interested in anything but helping us The night would have been 5* except for him

    Very disappointing experience. Our reservation was at 7:15, we did not get seated until 7:30. When we were seated we were exiled to the very back of the back room where there was only one other table occupied. Our waiter was extremely busy and did not take our order until 8:15. The hostesses could have cared less that we had to wait a half hour past our reservation. The calamari came out cold and our waiter did take it back. The rest of the food was good.

    Our server, Jim, was very attentive, helpful, accommodating and patient. The food was very good. Table reserved was just as requested. The hostess was a little nervous because I checked in and 3 minutes later went back to let her know the rest of my party had arrived and she acted as though she'd never seen me before. It was a little awkward. I liked the place, however, and would certainly return.

    I took a couple of friends to lunch at Bobby's after having a great experience on my prior visit. But this server brought me the wrong salad, which had too much dressing and unsatisfying garnish. My friends enjoyed their meals. When the right food comes to the table this is a great place.

    We had a wonderful reunion, my friend and I, excellent wine, food and conversation. Service was great..The only thing was with a reservation we still had to wait for a table..If 7 p.m. reservations come early don't give away our 6:45 reservation table-'not cool. That's why not 5 stars.

    Bobbie's has a great location, but is way overpriced. The service was excellent, but didn't warrant the cost. The food was delicious! I've been to downtown restaurants that charge less. I'm a Deerfield resident and would love to see a menu change.

    Starting with the Liberator gin martini was an excellent recommendation from the bartender. My vegetarian companion had the eggplant Parm (it was the best ever), and I had the veal piccata that melted in my mouth. We will be back!

    The food is EXCELLENT! Bobby's salad is great (serves 2). I had the sea bass with arugula special - it was exquisitely cooked and well-balanced. But... the noise is INTOLERABLE! I measured it - 90 dB. Not as loud as at a rock concert, but very disturbing. You know that it's too noisy when you have to yell to have a conversation with people at the same table. Around 10 pm when most people had left, we suddenly realized that there was some music playing at the restaurant. We couldn't even hear it before that.

    Very cool space (for Deerfield) with a nice outdoor patio, a terrific bar with knowledgeable bartenders, and solid food choices. If you don't feel like heading into Chicago or Evanston, this is a great alternative. Has some of the best bartenders in the area if you like well-made drinks. From the classics to the modern. Great for an after-work drink and appetizer as well.

    Food and service were good. Too much noise. Music with drum beats adds to the noise level. With the noise caveat (making it difficult to hold a conversation), I would recommend Bobby's for the quality and amount of food.

    Second time here. Ordered the halibut special. I did not like it. The flavor was odd and the texture was not right. After trying it I requested a different dish. The manager told me the chef said it was fresh and properly prepared. Therefore unless I paid for a new entree they would not replace it. I felt I satisfied and like I had not been heard. This would never have happened at wildfire which is my favorite in the area. At these prices I will not be back. No effort was made to appease me in any way. I will not be back.

    We celebrated my birthday at Bobby's. I came with my children and appreciate that the wine list has exceptional wines by the glass. (I enjoyed a glass of Caymus with dinner). The calamari is always cooked perfectly and prepared in a balsamic reduction. Two of us had the filet oscar which was cooked perfectly. Service is attentive and friendly. Bobby's is by far one of my favorite restaurants in the northern suburbs.

    This restaurant has transformed into my new favorite spot. The burger is one of the best I have ever eaten. It is a must to try! The pasta is outstanding. The weekend specials offer new taste sensations each weekend. This is definitely a spot you can keep returning to without getting tired of the same old thing.

    You walk into this place and it has that downtown vibe, from the menu to the winelist and craft cocktails. It's they don't over think what they doing, but what they do is great. We are hooked. Noise cab be a issue on busy nights.

    This was our second visit to Bobby's Deerfield, and will probably be our last. Aside from the caesar salad, the food was just not very good. Especially disappointed with the bland fish (seafood) salad and the odd crabcakes. Oh well.

    Prior experience was good, this one however, not so much. 40 minute wait despite a reservation, jeez. Front of house staff was unapologetic. Food was ok, not great. Long wait for appetizers and for main course dishes. Some main course items arrived cold. However, some menu standouts...Roasted Veggies, Burrata, Gnocchi with Beef. Bobby's Deerfield may be fine for lunch or weeknight dinner, but Saturday night crowds seem to overwhelm them.

    This was our second time at Bobby's. On her recommendation, my daughter's boyfriend tried the veal chop, which he loved. I had the stuffed pork chop, which was delicious. My husband had the roasted chicken and he devoured it. Our appetizers were wonderful: escargots, crab cakes, mussels, and beet salad. For dessert, we did order again the sticky cake with salted caramel ice cream....perfect.

    We went here for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We've been looking for a new place to dine where we could get good quality food at moderately reasonable prices. The food was so delicious and we enjoyed eating outdoors on their patio. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a new place to dine and, while we did not sit inside, it looks like a great place to hang out in the colder weather as the ambience was really great. It is definitely more upscale than I thought it would be but it was stuffy like some places can be either. It has a comfortable atmosphere to it.
