As always the service is excellent, the food fantastic and the ambience lovely. Even without a window seat I would still happily come back here again and again, with a window seat it’s spectacular.

My fourth visit to Robert for Sunday brunch.
Love how buzzy this place is, menu is interestingly different. Service is very good.
Try to get a window table, the view over Columbus Circle and Central Park is amazing.

Went with my now fiancé and proposed there. Food and ambiance were great. They sat us next to the window and our server was great. They really made the night feel special for us and set up a special desert for me to propose to. Highly recommend and will go again! Thank you to the staff of Robert for making it a night we will never forget

We loved our meal @ Robert! The food was great, the service was terrific. We were so happy that my request for a window seat was honored and that we were not rushed through our meal and was able to sit around a little after we finished.

Beautiful space! Great lunch menu, many choices for a bite or a big meal. Limited but reasonably priced wines by the glass.
Have eaten here before, and my one complaint is the waiters press you to take your order, not sure why as the foos comes out rather quickly and hot. No problem with sitting after eating to soak up the ambiance. Just wish the wait staff was a little more patient!

If you reserve with time you will be able to enjoy an amazing view of Columbus Circle, Broadway and Central Park, but not only the view is the good quality of this restaurant. The service we received was the best i have received in NYC, waiter and the rest of the staff very polite and attentive to our needs and requests, and the food was really good. We are definitely coming back to try other items in the menu.

Went to Robert after seeing a Broadway show and was not disappointed. The view is fantastic, drinks were delicious, service was great! Not blown away by the food but it was still very good. Will definitely be going back for drinks and the view for sure!

The restaurant is truly american experience. There are very few tourist because the location of the restaurants is not obvious. Once I had a birthday party there and it was great experience.
The food is well serve, taste good and service is kind and fast. It is perfect place of for dinner. I would chose different venue for branch. There restaurant became busy and change the ambiance.

We had the rack of lamb, sauce was inedible it was so salty-tasting. Ordered the mussels, but I did not care for the combo the chef concocted. They were sorely overwhelmed in the sauce and bacon. Stick to the steak it looked better at the next table from us.

We always enjoy lunch at Robert when we are in the city. This time was no exception starting with the view over the wintry park under the crystal blue sky. I had the three course prix fix menu starting with a gorgeous fruit and greens salad, followed by toasted ravioli with a pea puree and parmesan and black truffle. Dessert was a cheesecake bar with mango and passion fruit. It all was so pretty and really delicious. The restaurant was quiet as we ate an early lunch on a January Friday. Service was perfect - not hovering, but available and friendly. We had a great time.

Lovely spot--airy at lunch, pretty at dinner--with good, if slightly small menu. Space between tables and gentle music trio at night make for a comfortable place for conversation for a couple or a group. Smooth and serene choice for grownups in the Columbus Circle area.

Fantastic view of Columbus Circle and Central Park. We were able to get a window table after someone cancelled - lucky us! Delicious food, friendly and professional service, and they let us sit and enjoy our lunch until the last minute (next reservation, please). Wonderful and highly recommend!

I called in well advance to inquire whether the kitchen could accommodate my vegan diet.— other than a collection of sides. They assured me that they would prepare something specifically for me. And it would be noted on my reservation. After seated I made the waiter aware of this discussion. He was dismissive and suggested that I needed to find something in the menu and that nothing special would could or would be prepared. Eventually he went to the kitchen and returned with a suggestion from the kitchen. It was very mediocre. And more importantly our waiter was ungracious and haughty. I tipped him but not as generously I ordinarily.

Robert has become my go to restaurant for midtown. The view is fabulous, the food is very good, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. This most recent visit they gave us a seat by the window, telling us up front that they needed it back back 7:45, which was fine with us. We weren't quite ready to leave by 7:45, but they easily moved us into the lounge area. I have been here with friends, planning to bring my husband soon.

Delicious food, great service, fabulous view. We dined here for my boyfriend's birthday. Arrived early and had drinks in the lounge so that we could enjoy the sun setting over Central Park. We moved to our table as night was falling. The view of Columbus Circle, Broadway and the Park is great both during the day and at night. Our seafood main courses were wonderful. I had a delicious poached apple salad, and my boyfriend loved his wagyu sliders. Service was attentive but not overbearing. A first rate NYC restaurant experience. We'll keep Robert on our list for special occasions.

Our waiter, Ian, was helpful, as were all the staff. We had requested a window table and were thrilled with our view of Central Park! The brunch was wonderful; a perfect prequel to our Broadway matinee experience. My date was from out of town, but I live here; it's always fun to see and experience NYC through another's eyes.
Thank you to ROBERT and all there!
PS. We liked it so much, we returned for lunch the next day.

The views of Columbus Circle are spectacular, and the service was excellent. We had Sunday brunch. The menu was somewhat limited, and while the presentation was very nice, the food was average. I had mushroom risotto. The flavor was good, but a bit salty. Molten chocolate cake was good, but very small for the price.
