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.

    The best thing about Bobby's- other than the location that is very convenient for shopping and access to 94 and 41- is that the staff is consistently friendly, attentive, and efficient. It is a pretty restaurant; when full the high ceilings make it quite noisy- but it doesn't seem to reach "full" that consistently I thought when Bobby's opened that the food was tastier than it is now. But I am an awful orderer due to dietary restrictions and am not adventurous, don't mix meat with cheese- the choices for me are not exciting Like it best in warm weather or for lunch

  • Great night out
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 11/18/2014
    Another great experience overall. Started with the sweet and spicy calamari - my favorite preparation anywhere. My wife's Dover sole was amazing. I had the gnocchi with braised brisket; I have to admit it was not as savory as I would have hoped. I had envisioned pulled beef in a dark broth. The dish came with a light broth and cubed meat. Again, it was good, but not great. And I think a lot of that had to do with what I had expected vs. what I received. Wine service and cocktails started very slow - waited about 20 minutes; but that was more than acceptable with the service that followed. The waiter was very nice, if a little bit distracted. That was fine. Bobby (owner) was very nice - visited the table and chatted with us a couple of times during the night. Even brought us some homemade limoncello at the end of the night. We have been about 3-4 times before, so we are far from regulars. So, I found this to be a genius move on his part. We'll be back.

    First time for dinner, though I had dined several times for lunch. Plentiful menu, more abundant than most, with a wide range of choices for every palette. The wait person was very open to specific requests and changes to dishes. Everything we requested was accommodated. I ordered Chicken Caprese, the only surprise was that it was accompanied with a large portion of cauliflower, though that was not listed on the menu. When the dish arrived I was taken aback, since I had never eaten cauliflower, on purpose! I did find it tasty, but the sides should not be a surprise. My bad for not asking, yet cauliflower is an unusual choice. Had I known, I would have asked for another substitution. Decor is beautiful, music is soothing, it was a lovely experience.

    I was really disappointed that we had to wait for 25 minutes past the time of our reservation before being seated. They thanked is for our patience but a round of drinks or an appetizer on the house would have made me feel a lot better. The rest of the evening went great.

    Very nice spot in Deerfield with one of the better bars. This is one of the few places on the North Shore where the bartenders know how to craft a cocktail. I put Bobby's in the same category as Guild Hall in Glencoe or Trifecta in Wilmette (Winnetka?).

    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.

    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.

    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.
