Overall the restaurant was good . The best experience I had was the service . The waiter and the rest of the wait staff were excellent .The food was prepared quickly . The portions were small but tasty . The only problem is if you do not get a table next to the window you miss the great view of Columbus Circle from the 9th floor .I was not able to get a window table . They need to build a second level and double the window tables .

This is one is the finest restaurants in New York. It’s fancy, but not so fancy that you feel like someone is judging you for wearing an untucked button-down shirt or having a neck beard that you couldn’t shave because your kids wouldn’t leave you alone when you were shaving. Anyway, beautiful view of Central Park and exquisite food and service.

Four of us ate here before going to the theater at Lincoln Center, chiefly because it is within a 10 minute walk from our hotel and the theater. It was a good thing we chose it because the snowstorm on November 15th made travel by taxi virtually impossible. We had a table by the window and enjoyed the view of the snow falling in Columbus Circle. The service was great and we were in and out in an hour and a half (but we didn't have dessert.) Between the four of us we had squash soup, a large green salad, beet, fig and burrata appetizers, branzini fish, and scallops with sweet potato puree; all were delicious. We would definitely go back

Where to start, made a reservation over a month ago and asked for a window table
The welcome you receive is warm and genuine, escorted to our window seat, great start!!!
Menu was clear, both ordered fish mains, served quickly and attended by a great waiter, the meals were amazing.
In summary:
Great welcome
Great views
Great food

I needed to wait 20 min for the waiter to approach me for the order. I needed to ask a waiter myself to come and take my order. When I ordered my tea on the end, after lunch- the bag was broken inside, when the waiter exchange the pot for me, I found it was dirty inside. I did not drink it. When I was finishing with my main course I have asked to pack my dessert to go, and bring it to me with the check because the food I ate was already too much. The waiter brought the take away dessert when I was still eating my main course! I asked to put it in the fridge for me cuz by the time I finish it will all melt. When I finished with all lunch I have asked to bring my take away dessert after I paid. It never happened. I got tired of waiting because I was in rush and I just left. I would recommend that restaurant for the view, interiors and food is very nice. The service isn't very good unfortunately.

The nosiest restaurant I have ever had the misfortune to dine in
The food was average, my potatoes were tepid at best as was my husband’s pasta
The view they rave about can only be seen if you request a window table, if which there are only a few
A major disappointment

I came here on the recommendation of a friend to celebrate my husband's birthday (his name being Robert certainly helped the decision!). It not only met, but exceeded, my expectations. I made reservations over a month in advance to secure a window-side table which I highly recommend -- even as life-long NY'ers, we were in awe of the view of Columbus Circle and the newly lit holiday lights at the Time Warner Center. Our server, Garrett, was a class act -- and funny, too. They provided some complimentary birthday treats and truly made it a special evening. Definitely a special occasion place. And, oh yeah, the food was fantastic, too!

This is our favorite restaurant in NYC. We are in the City often, and have eaten in many excellent restaurants, but this is by far #1 for us. The view, decor, food and staff are all excellent, and their attention to detail and making sure everything is perfect is outstanding

The food is good but the desserts are very limited. There should be more vanilla desserts instead of chocolate cake and fig cake. Crime brûlée would be a nice idea. Too cold for ice cream

It was My sisters birthday and I requested window seats. When I arrived, they told me there were no window seats available and that it was based on availability. The girl acted like she could care less, which was really disappointing. The food was good however, but I am disappointed to have paid over $100 for lunch without a view. And to top it off, when they brought my sisters birthday treat, they laid it on the table and left. No happy birthday song or anything. Lame.

We hadn't been back to Robert in many months because the last time the fish we ordered was tasteless. We decided to go again hoping that that was an off night. It wasn't. We brought friends for a special event. Our fish again was, simply put, awful. Very dry--again. We will not be going back to Robert. There are many other good restaurants in the area so don't waste your money or time.

Had a lovely brunch at this restaurant. The menu was interesting and the food was good. The waiter was very thoughtful and attentive to all of our requests. As to the food, the best course was the dessert. It was beautifully presented ,very tasty and generous. I definitely look forward to returning to Robert and would like to try lunch and dinner here.

It was my girlfriends 30th birthday and we’d been let down by our initial reservation at another restaurant and as it was our first trip to NY we were unaware of Robert.
We got a table at 9.30pm and I mentioned the occasion on the booking.
The waiter (I didn’t catch his name - older guy with grey hair and glasses) was fantastic....no big birthday deal but just one or two subtleties which really made the evening amazing.

Esperienza indimenticabile, soddisfatte tutte le aspettative, a partire dalla richiesta di avere un tavolo accanto alla finestra su columbus circle, ottime pietanze e buon vino, atmosfera fantastica e servizio eccellente, prezzi adeguati al livello del locale. Vivamente consigliato prenotare per tempo.

Went to Robert twice in the past month and was blown away each time. The decor is phenomenal and so is the food. I ordered the duck breast as my meal on my first visit which was absolutely exquisite. On my next visit I got the lamb chops which were equally as delectable. My partner and I have made this our new spot and we intend to eat here at least once a month. Can't wait to come back
