About Bobbys Deerfield
General Manager: Ana-Maria Gherghely
Bobby’s Deerfield is based loosely on our other location Café Lucci which we have developed since 1995. 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.

Bobbys Deerfield Ratings and Reviews
Waiter forgot to put the appetizer order in for 2 of the 4 people in our group. Never came by to see how we were doing. When we complained to the manager that our food had not arrived after sitting for a very long time we were then presented with our entree and told our appetizer order never was placed. We were then told dessert would be on the house which wasn’t . We got charged for it. Very disappointing because we always enjoyed Bobby’s and actually brought some friends there that evening that had never been. I was very embarrassed. Needless to say I don’t think they will ever return. Brought one of the appetizers after the dinner. What a mess!!!
The saving grace for this place was the service. Our waiter was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and attentive. We were seated in an awful spot where servers and patrons had to scoot past me every 15-30 seconds. Yes, I counted. Eventually, I moved to the other side of the table, but it was still a huge distraction. I didn't complain or ask to be moved. We don't mind paying for good food and love fine dining experiences, but the $55 Ribeye wasn't anything to write home about and the chef's take on jambalaya left a lot to be desired. We probably won't return, but I don't think our presence will be missed. We were stared at all night like we weren't expected to be in such company. And it's a shame because the place is so beautiful.
Went with a group of fri nds for New Year’s Eve. Had a great time. Great meal and great service. Restaurant was busy with lots of lively conversation but not too loud. Not like some restaurants where you have to shout to be heard. We all enjoyed our meals - from burgers , to pasta to pork chops and veal. All delicious! We’ll be back!
We had dinner at Bobby’s on New Year’s Eve and while the dining room was very busy we felt neither rushed nor ignored. The dining room as well as the bar area was very nice. Good service and lovely atmosphere. The price of dinner options was more than we usually spend but the portions were a good size and very delicious! We had a great experience and will return.
I have frequented this restaurant for many years. I have always found the food wonderful, but at times, the service is been very average, if not below. I would say that I frequent the restaurant at least once or twice a month, and sometimes more. My whole family does as well.
Tonight, I went there with a dear friend for dinner. We both ordered shirt steak. They were serving brussel sprouts. I asked the waiter if I could substitute anything else for the sprouts. I was informed that this was impossible, and they would not change their protocol. I asked the waiter to speak with Bobby (the owner), and honestly was waiting for him to come to our table all during dinner, as I saw him flitting around, so I chose to bide my time.
We received the bill. The charge for the asparagus I ordered was $6.00 additional. I was willing to pay an upcharge, but certainly did not feel that it was right to do what they did. Again, It is not the charge, but the inability to amend and assist the customer. It would have meant nothing to substitute another vegetable.
I was informed by the waiter that the manager made this decision. I then mentioned to the waiter, that I had asked to speak with Bobby. I was then told that he left for the evening. I did speak with the manager, who again dug her heels in.
I choose never to frequent this restaurant again, which is a sad, as it is extremely convenient to our home, but I feel that this policy is shameful, and therefore choose to dig in my heels!
I love this restaurant. I live in Indianapolis and visit my daughter and family in Deerfield. We were there on Friday night and our dinner was phenomenal. Our server Tara was awesome. The cocktails were healthy pours and our food was fantastic! The barramundi special was incredible. I can’t say enough about this local gem!
Enjoyed a wonderful family meal. Started with the Grilled Octopus and Steamed Mussels with Saffron Sauce, which are always great. I had the Blackened Mahimahi and Shrimp special as an entree, on a recommendation from our waiter, Maui. He was right, as usual. The spice delivered enough zing, without over powering the great taste of the very fresh fish and shrimp.
Thanks for a great evening!
