    It’s a luxurious and high service feeling from the moment you step off the elevator. The food never disappoints in beauty and taste. So many smart touches keep adding to the delightful ambience, super view and charming staff.

    The Robert is a really sophisticated place. The live piano music really adds to the ambience and of course, the view is wonderful. Service was attentive and the beverage service was fine. The food however, was not quite as sophisticated as the place. In any event we will return.

    We did not get a table with a view. Server forgot drinks, had to ask for coffee refill but was good otherwise. 2/3 people loved their brunch orders (French toast and eggs Benedict), and the location is great.

    This wonderful restaurant on Columbus Circle provides the perfect place for an incredibly delicious lunch. The food, staff and ambiance were perfection. The views of Central Park and the bustling streets below gives one the incredible sense of why New York is so beautiful. Everything on the menu was delicious and sensibly priced.

    I had lunch at Robert’s with a friend and it was a nice time. The view is what makes the experience worthwhile. The food was good, with the French toast and the passion fruit crème brûlée being the stand outs of the meal for us. The service was ok, we were 1st denied a table at the window even though it was empty, we were sitting right next to it… after 15 minutes they decided to let us enjoy the window views rather than the empty table. I ordered a coffee which was never brought to the table.

    Great thanksgiving meal. The menu was a welcome variation of the typical turkey offering. Very inventive. Beautifully presented. Live entertainment and a subdued atmosphere made the evening very special. This was my second thanksgiving at Robert and I will return if the opportunity presents itself next year.

    I have always loved this restaurant that I feel is consistently underrated. The restaurant is pretty, great views, very accommodating staff and service and really good food. Good art work on the walls and a nice buzz without being to loud. I could do without the piano player but that is just a personal dislike in most restaurants. Try it, you will be glad you did

    Unfortunately the food was disappointing — uninspired. The stuffed shrimp were tasteless and the pasta pommodoro was dull. There were too many waiters for the table — quite impersonal. Last but not least, too dark inside!

    Our distinguished server was Michael. He couldn't have been more dignified, elegant, well-informed, discreet, gracious and supportive without being overbearing. After researching many restaurants in the region, I decided to come here and do not regret it. Further, the chef and servers were very generous in sending some elegant appetizers and desserts to the table. I should also add that Robert's staff including Chef Cortes and Teresa kept all their promises regarding food preparation needs and table placement. Their patience is laudable as I asked a plethora of well-intentioned and detailed questions before making a final decision which turned out to be perfect. On a personal, non-gastronomic note: do NOT bring an opportunistic person who is simply looking for a free meal to such a sacred place. You need to preserve the magical integrity of this place with the right company.

    The nicest thing about Robert for lunch is that there's lots of daylight in the room. If you can score a seat near the window (not easy), there's a nice view to be had. The food is good, not great. There's better food around for the same money. But Robert also offers the opportunity to see the museum--always interesting.

    We love Robert before Lincoln Center events. This time it was Jazz at Lincoln Center. Our third Robert dinner this fall. Menu changes a little and the fall additions (roasted acorn squash, pork chops, unique ice cream flavors) make us want to come back. The breathtaking view, excellent live piano, and culinary touches like amuse bouche and little dessert make Robert really special.
