We went for Easter and we invited friends to join us, unfortunately the quality was not as usual. Most important the bread had nut shells in it, we reported it to the personnel, since we risked to break our tooth in multiple occasions. Their answer was about “nuts and allergy”, I don’t think they really understood the complaint and risk, and we didn’t even receive a sorry or an apology for the inconvenience. I’ve been going to Robert for years, too bad that the quality and attention is declining.

The window view is gorgeous as is the restaurant. The food was delicious and presentation was even more beautiful!! We had to address the manager regarding a staff member not having table etiquette and he quickly corrected it. Most definitely recommend Robert!!! We will be back again...

We relied on our concierge, Yuri, at the Grand Hyatt to recommend a great place with a view. His top recommendation was Robert. So glad we went. Chris, our waiter was quick, efficient and so helpful about our many questions regarding New York life. He enjoyed taking care of us and opening up about his life in the city. The food was perfect. Our evening was everything we hoped. Can't wait to come back!

It was my first time. The atmosphere is fantastic, the wine choice is huge. The pianist plays famous songs and the view is astonishing. I highly recommend the place.

Too cold, very poor food for this type of restaurant, great view if you get a table next to the window, otherwise doesn’t worth it to go

We Love coming here !
Great views of Columbus Circle, service is personal and helpful. Food is very good
Maybe a few too many crying children at brunch time so be forewarned. When my children were little not that long ago we took them to wonderful restaurants but we never let them disturb other diners...don’t get what today’s parents are thinking.

Food was delicious, particularly the pork belly + carrot fraiche and the seafood dishes. Toasted coconut ice cream was the best! Passion fruit cheesecake is so-so compared to the coconut ice cream.
Service was a little slow, probably because we were in the back. While gracious, he should have been more attentive in terms of checking on readiness to order, water, getting the bill.

Everything was perfect; service, food and drink. I bought in a cake and candles as it was a friends birthday and the cake was bought over with lit candles after our meal and very beautifully presented in to eat later. So much care and attention from all there. Would fully recommend.

As we were led to the back left corner away from the windowed front, I felt disappointment until we arrived at our lovely secluded table with a view of Columbus Circle and Central Park from 2 of our seats. We were meeting French friends of ours and of course offered them those seats with a view. They were more than impressed. A bread basket and a gluten-free roll were served upon request. My husband and I shared the burrata/beet/fig salad, which was creamy and flavorful, but could have had more beets to strengthen it. The fish offerings were well received and my squid ink pasta with lobster had a lovely sized portion of sweet and tender lobster. It was a joy to be in a beautiful setting sharing a conversation with friends without the need to raises the decibel level of our conversation. I would definitely return.

Please be specific about what is in your dishes. My sister asked very clearly, about a salad and then a soup, whether there was anything beyond the listed ingredients in the dish she was ordering. The waiter said no, but when those items came, there were in fact other ingredients, which she did not want/could not eat. In both cases the waiter replaced the dishes immediately, but that should not have to happen - - a customer should not have to appear difficult, sending something back when the question had been asked clearly; and the waiters (and kitchen) should not have the extra trouble.

Other than that, everything was excellent!

Not impressed at all. The food was mediocre and the service was not good. My husband asked for a soft drink three times before they brought it. It’s my daughters 10th birthday and we requested a table by the window. We reserved in advance. They did not accommodate this. They did however make her two little finger sized cakes (tiny). Afterwards she asked if we’d take her to a bakery to buy her a brownie. TOURIST TRAP.

We were here in February for our anniversary and had an excellent experience. That’s why we were back here for a 70th birthday celebration. What a turnaround - downward. Foie gras appetizer poorly presented; pork tenderloin over cooked and dried out; duck good again; cod lukewarm. One of the more disparate, back to back experiences - sad to say

Fantastic Sunday Brunch before seeing The Ferryman. We had a window table as requested overlooking Columbus Circle. The view is superb. There was a cellist and piano player for wonderful background music. The Lobster omelette with brie and corn was incredible and we enjoyed the spicy Bloody Mary's and Bellinis. Waiter was excellent and put me at ease with my food allergies. Would definitely will recommend!

Terrible experience. I went there for dinner with my husband and my 2 children. We asked for a table with a view, we had a table (almost at the back of the restaurant) with a partial view on a residential building, no interest at all and very intrusive. The few tables with the view on Central park don't even have a breathtaking view... nothing incredible. Foodwise : Quite expensive, small portions and terrible food. My daughter took a lentils soup, it was water with some "not enough cooked" lentils grains inside. It didn't taste good, it was really bad. I took the scallops, there were 4 small scallops in a watery sauce, really like water, it had no flavour. And on the side 2 spoons max of carot puree.

After touring the LOOT show at the MAD museum, my friends and I went to upstairs to Robert for dinner. We were seated by the window and had a great view of Columbus Circle. The food was great as usual, the desert was sinful as usual, and the service was excellent. The ambiance is always upscale and the piano entertainment enhances the experience. I will definitely return and definitely recommend it to friends.

We very much enjoyed our experience. Our waiter was very attentive. Our meals were wonderful. The view and ambience were perfect. Our only complaint was that we requested a table at the window weeks ago. We were given a table jin the row just out from the window. The one at the window near us sat vacate for most of our meal. Eventually a couple came in and were given that table. Why not us to begin with? Perhaps I should have called for our reservation instead of counting on a request made when booking with Open Table.
