We dined at Bobby's on New Year's Eve before heading to our party. The whole experience was delightful, from start to finish. Would highly recommend!

Details: We were a party of 14 on a Monday night and server who didn’t know what they were doing. We had to ask for everything, our drinks, appetizers, water, etc. Our server never once (not once) asked for refill drinks or asked if we were ready for entrees or dessert. We had to repeat our drink orders and ask for the status multiple times. In addition to that, and Bobby’s even forgot one of the entrees and since we wait until everyone receives their meal to eat, our food was cold by the time we ate it. It was honestly an all around disappointing and sad experience. We’ll never come back.

The food was excellent and generous portions. Service was good overall except it took a little long to get our drink order. It was a Sunday night and not busy at all. We will definitely be back.

The food and service were both excellent. The atmosphere is lovely. Sophisticated but friendly. We had such a good time. Best dining experience I’ve had in awhile.

Four of us dined on a Friday night at Bobby’s. The table was immediately available. The waiter was very attentive. Two of us had the beet salad and said it was excellent. The main courses were also good. Dessert was excellent. A very good place.

Lovely decor, good food, great waiter. We told Shawn we had a performance to attend, and he made sure we got our drinks and food in a timely manner. I recommend Bobby’s especially if you’re going to the Apollo theatre. Nicest restaurant close to it.

Absolutely amazing. We eat at a whole lot of restaurants. Both in Chicago and all over the country.

This was hands down one of the best dining experiences we have had in years.

Matthew was on point as well. A true gem in every aspect of our dining experience.

We were the first people there when they opened, which was promising. The waiter seemed very friendly and answered any questions. Everything was going so well until other tables started to fill up and he completely forgot about us... after finally coming by after we’d been done for a while and asking if he could get us anything else and we said no and that we were good/done, he then didn’t return (or appear anywhere for us to get his attention) for another 35 minutes... we were sitting there awkwardly done waiting for the check for an unreasonable amount of time, even after going to notify the hostess stand and asking for o it server. The food was fine and there were a lot of interesting items on the menu that we’d wanted to come back for, but we all left really disappointed and exhausted after today’s experience, so it won’t be high on the list to return.

We came here for dinner. The portions are very good for the price in the city and the food was really tasty. We had a glitch, our dessert took a really long time to come out, we became a bit annoyed but they comped it and were nice about it. I would go back everything we had was very good.

A decent place, but quite expensive. Service was good. The red wine seemed over-chilled.

I hope Bobby’s can bring it all together. The service was great. The bread is served with some weird cold garlicky mush - needs a make over. The calamari was very good but cold. Shrimp and grits need some umph and salt but were cold???? Stuffed pork chop was huge and very good. Skirt steak meat quality was good but again cold??

Great, modern space. Extensive wine list but good bottles and reasonable prices. Strong menu with a variety of options. Wonderful service from our server. She was available when necessary but not pushy. She took our order all at once but spaced it all out perfectly. Key lime pie was delicious. A fabulous dining experience overall. I will definitely be back

Well, it’s not Cafe Lucci (totally different menu), but we thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. Excellent bar menu. My Chicken Milanese was tasty and crunchy. My wife’s lamb ribs were excellent. And the staff was very friendly and helpful. Excellent parking situation in building connected to the restaurant once you know how to get in and how it works.

Although the service and ambience are lovely, the food is nothing special and certainly not worth the high prices. Too bad because Bobby's in Lincoln Park is in my neighborhood. The Ceaser Salad had no taste and the chicken Milanese was too salty. One of my guests ordered a hamburger medium and it was well done. The waiter was wonderful.

Service was outstanding. Very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Crab cake and Calamari appetizers were outstanding and great value (very large servings). Everyone enjoyed their entrees and most took home leftovers ... my son particularly enjoyed the lamb chops. Received two free desserts because we were celebrating our anniversary. Pricing is very reasonable considering quality of food.

Great service and food. Great variety and something for everyone. My son had the duck and couldn’t stop talking about how great it was. My only complaint was I think the prices were a little high for instance 8.50 for a scoop of gelato? Otherwise wonderful place.
