Theresa, our lovely maître d' helped arrange a table near the window for our family to celebrate our son’s 23rd birthday at this gem of a restaurant. The waitstaff was excellent! All -around great service and superb food with a lovely view of Columbus Circle and The Park. Our family plans to make it a birthday tradition for my son.
Regards,
The Ball Family
PS The rigatoni and the mushroom risotto are amazing!!!

Robert was definitely off their game. First the hostess seated us to a table for 2, when we had a reservation for 4. She went back to check, although I showed her on my phone. I ordered the pear salad without cheese. They brought the wrong salad altogether, and since they had served the other appetizers rushed to bring me the correct one. They picked off the cheese (Which doesn't ever work) and served. I ate the pear, brought it to their attention, and the waiter didn't seem to care. Chicken was dry. Chilean seabass and branzino were good. My friend's coffee went back, as it was cold. My husband asked 3 different servers for milk for his coffee. By the time it came, coffee was cold.
Typically I love this place, but this was a big disappointment.

Have eaten at Roberts many times. Tonight was a disappointment. The food was good but the service was subpar. Too long to get a drink. Too long to take our order. And too much time between courses. And got our order incorrect. Makes us sad.

I take all my friends and relatives to Robert. At first they are overwhelmed by the view. Then they enjoy the ambience. Then the love the food. They appreciate the music and the way the waiters serve and pick up the food. No one has ever been disappointed. What else is there to say except make a reservations.

We were visiting with friends from LA, and went there for dinner. Very beautiful views, quiet relaxing ambiance, extremely friendly courteous staff. AMAZING FOOD!! The sea bass was a delight. We would definitely come back next time we visit New York, we’ll do lunch though, we’d want to experience the views during the day time.

Wonderful view, gorgeous food, white tablecloths, elegant service, gracious staff. This would have been a five star review but I spent half an hour trying to find a way to get a window seat and finally negotiated a corner window at 7:30pm and when we arrived at 7pm we were offered the second window row - I said we were happy to wait for the corner window seat and the hostess politely but firmly informed me that she would be happy to seat me now in the seat that was available. I knew the corner was almost done and that I could sit at the bar and I suggested we might do so but she smiled and said your table is ready and seated us at the second row. Over the next half hour I got to watch the corner table get cleared and readied for another party that was delighted with their luck in being seated right beside the window.

Otherwise: lovely appetizers beautifully presented (the tuna crudo in particular exquisite), the mains were delicious with surprisingly ample portions (lamb shank succulent with figs and the funny squash spaghetti dish was perfectly steamed - excellent texture, not at all oily.) Pecan dessert was terrific and they brought a little candle with truffles for our anniversary which made us very happy. Wonderful date night. Too bad about the table though.

The occasion was my granddaughter’s 16th birthday. We went to New York City for her birthday. The concierge at our hotel recommended Robert. It is at the top of the Art Museum. We were seated where we could see Central Park. The food was very good. We had a pear salad that was delicious. I had a fish dish with garlic mashed potatoes and Breanna had a pasta lobster dish. Both were very good. We also had a pumpkin bread pudding with a sauce that was seasonal. It ended our great dinner. It was very majestic experience for her sweet 16th birthday.

It was my husband and my bday dinner celebration. There were no window tables, which was disappointing, but the maitre d found us a window table before ordering and even gave us a complimentary drink.

Excellent service and great good with beautiful views. The yuca fries were a total surprise. Not many restaurants can make them well and these were made to perfection. It’s hard to find places that check all those boxes. Great experience!

Excellent food and service. Especially loved the mushroom risotto and lava cake. Although we didn’t get a window seat, all tables are within sight of the windows. Glad we were seated far from the live music, though, since we prefer conversation.

Quiet, modern spot for a business meeting or special occasion. The space isn’t too big so it doesn’t get too loud. Window seats are coveted so book early if you want a view of Central Park.

The first thing one recognizes about Robert is the amazing view, and we had a table overlooking the south end of Central Park. Lovely!
The waitstaff was competent and helpful, the food very delicious. We both had the branzino, and it was excellent! The sorbets which we had for dessert were unusual flavors, and we enjoyed it all very much. Most valuable to us -- friends who hadn't seen each other in a long time -- was that it was comfortable to have a conversation,
and we lingered longer than necessary to enjoy that!

Robert is one of the gems of NYC. The view out over Central Park is a huge draw (you need to ask for window table weeks in advance), but anywhere in the restaurant is lovely. And the food is excellent, very special indeed. The mini lobster roll appetizer was a delight.

This place is a gem. On the 9th floor of the Art & Design museum on Columbus Circle the view is stunning. We had the parsnip soup salad, tuna crudo and crab cake Benedict. Each dish was beautiful plated, very fresh, carefully served and delicious. The desserts were pecan tart and BOMBOLINI, with 3 sauces-'white chocolate, milk chocolate and caramel. I love, love love these crisp little balls, coated in cinnamon sugar. Make a res. abd go!!
