Haven’t dined here in a few years, but we went tonite for my birthday, and to share the view with an out of town guest. The food was fine, but the overall experience was less than stellar.

My husband had called earlier in the day requesting window seating so we could share the view with our Kansan guest. Obviously this is not always possible, but we were seated against a wall in the back of the restaurant while there were a number of clean, unused tables in the front. In this restaurant chosen for its views, there was pretty much nothing for us to see.

Maybe that’s what led to the service being SO inattentive. One waiter took a drink order. Fifteen minutes later another waiter appeared asking us for drink order and appetizer and entree order because, “It is easier for the chef to have it all at once.

There were children at one or two tables behind us. They were not inappropriately noisy for kids, but not what you’d expect in an adult restaurant in the evening.

For the money, there are lots better restaurants in Manhattan.

The night started with the rude girl at the front desk. When I asked her if this was the best table her response was to ask me if I wanted to cancel my reservation. F you. It was cold in the restaurant enough that my meal became cold quickly. Food wasn’t worth the price.

The view after the sunset is just stunning. You are in a 9th floor room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking Columbus Circle, crystal chandeliers,glass tables with clear armchairs interspersed with modern funky and colorful couches toward the rear of the room, add to the feeling of transparency and are quite comfortable at the same time, and also allow quite a nice view...While you are taking in the ambiance you can sip on one of the carefully selected wines on their wine list, while patient , professional staff serves you dishes you may have had before, like a branzino or a burrata appetizer, but beautifully presented, in quite generous portions, with really fine ingredients that taste fresh and blend so well together! Each new bite is an adventure...
I give Robert two thumbs up!

We went for brunch for our 20th Anniversary. When I booked I mentioned this and requested a window seat overlooking Central Park. On arrival we were greeted and wished a Happy Anniversary. The ambience is lovely and the decor is really vibrant and modern. We got a window seat with a stunning view. Service was first rate and the food was delicious. Portion size was good and pricing wasn’t as expensive as I expected. At the end of our meal, the waiter brought my wife and I a free glass of Prosecco and my 19 year old a fizzy elderflower which was a lovely touch. This was followed by three small cakes with a message wittier in. Hocolate woshing is a Happy Anniversary which was really thoughtful. They then gave us free tickets for the museum. We couldn’t have been happier with how we were treated on our special day. A fantastic restaurant with a great view and food and excellent service. Loved it!

Robert is a wow of a restaurant - great food, great service, wonderful decor, and to top it all, a view over Columbus Circle that's breathtaking. Pricey, but worth it. Go for a special occasion, and hope you get a table by the window (although you don't even need that to enjoy the view).

We were seated at a table overlooking Broadway, sufficiently out of the way to make it private enough to hold a conversation. The service was excellent -- not at all intrusive. The food, in addition to being very tasty, was attractively presented.

A few years ago, when the chef was a Portuguese lady, food seemed to be more sophisticated. Even the simple salmon burger with fries was splendid. Now, for example, the stylized "uevos rancheros" is a disaster! There's no need to get a modest plate like that and transform it in something pseudo-chic. It was not creative. The desserts are dull. Too much chocolate. In fact, the brunch menu is disappointing.

It was my second time at Robert. The first time I celebrated my 29th birthday with friends for lunch. This time I hosted a dinner for my cousin’s 25th and my bestfriend’s 31st birthday. I made reservations for eight people. I ordered two cakes to be delivered to Robert before my 9:45pm delivery. I called the restaurant the day before and spoke with Ms. Harris (I don’t remember her first name), the morning manager. She was very helpful! She gave me instructions to give to the bakery to ensure that both my cakes would be delivered seamlessly. Six people in group arrived on time. The hostess sat us in the lounge area as we awaited the others. We ordered drinks from the menu and a few that were not ( I had a Moscow mule). Our seventh person arrived 30 mins late and we were seated by the window. We ordered more drinks and dinner. 30 mins later, our eight person arrived. The staff easily brought over a chair and menu for her. I truly appreciated how easily the team transitioned from me asking them to seat only seven ppl to accommodating the eight person. Service was great! Dinner was great! The lamb chops with polenta was superb. Others raved about the lobster over pasta.

I love Robert - only Robert doesn't know that - so here goes: 'Robert, I love you!' Seriously I could sustain a long-term with Robert and it would be the first time I've managed that feat! Food is wonderful, inventive, and served in perfect amounts. Service is understated and attentive. The welcome starts with the super nice staff at the desk, and extends to the end of the meal which can be as long as you want - you will not feel rushed out. If you score a window table - difficult because they book early so - book early - it will like eating in heaven with a stunning view of Central Park, Columbus Circle and the tiny cars and trucks and buses heading up and down Broadway more than a hundred feet below.

The food was really good and the view exceptional but the service not so great. When I mentioned the table was moving a lot the waiter said in a condescending way to stop moving it!! I could not put my hands on the table or my feet on the flat table foot, it was quite uncomfortable.
It took him a good 15-20 min to come and fix it telling me again to stop moving the table. I was honestly about to leave the restaurant but it was already late and my husband was really sweet. We had to ask twice for his glass of wines to be refilled and served with the main dish.
The ambiance and the place are really nice but service should improve a bit.

Nonexistent service. Our water glass was not filled at all without us flagging down somebody. I don't think we saw our waiter once after our food was served. Even had a difficult time getting the bill. Food was above average. But the overall experience was poor. With so many dining options in the city, why would anyone come here?

Brought visitors from out of town. They loved the large windows and fabulous views of Central Park.
They also held our reservation for us because we were tied up in traffic for 40 minutes!
Food is wonderful. For brunch I recommend the incredible grilled cheese eggs benedict topped with bacon.
It is a gazillion calories but worth it!
