J'avais réservé en demandant une table avec vue pour dîner en amoureux. Nous étions en seconde vue avec toujours un groupe de 4 ou 5 américains bruyants. Pour notre première visite à New York, quelle déception de ne pas avoir été entendu.

Amazing service, food, views and ambiance. Upon arrival, I asked the hostess to surprise my friend with a birthday dessert. She asked for my friend’s name and arranged for the chocolate lava cake to be brought out on a beautiful plate with ‘Happy birthday, Deanna’ written in chocolate sauce. My friend was truly touched. I appreciated the service if Robert’s staff very much. Will go back for delicious food and outstanding atmosphere soon.

I took my daughter here for a special celebration on a Monday night. We were seated by the window overlooking the wonderful view of Central Park and Columbus Circle. The service was fine but the food underwhelmed. The octopus appetizer was cold and terribly salty, the melon salad greens were limp and old, the pork loin undercooked... the swordfish entree was the best thing we ordered. We ended up deciding to get coffee and dessert elsewhere as the price vs quality was not worth it.

Amazong view, super friendly staff. The portion is small and the taste is ok. I really come back to see the view, specially in the lunch time

Beautiful location. Service was superb. Food was delicious. Here for our 45th anniversary. All requests were met. They even provided a small desert with a handwritten congrats message. Made our night. Thanks again Roberts! Well done!

We enjoyed our meal at Robert. Everything was well-prepared and particularly well-plated. Service staff did a great job. The only small criticism is that the rest room waste basket was overflowwing with paper towels on the floor and on top of the trash bin. We had an early reservation, so it was surprising to observe the questionable condition of the restroom so early in the evening.

I love the idea of Robert--its lively design and spectacular views. But the tiny table in the far corner facing Central Park is awkward--one diner faces right into a mirror--and uncomfortable. Seats are un-ergonomic. We both ordered the frittata: it was over-browned, and the presentation of the salad lacked distinction; it was simply drenched in dressing and tossed onto the frittata. I like diner food, and Robert's prices are reasonable, but still that doesn't make it a diner. I expect a bit more.

I love Robert I often visit for dine with my friends. But I can see the foods are less flavorful, but over salted and not same as before. The ambience is great, but I want to enjoy at least the same quality food for the price.

We enjoyed our lunch at Robert after visiting MAD. It was a mini reunion of 4, and called for a special place. Robert was recommended by a friend, so I booked reservations for a window table a few weeks ahead.
We had an outstanding server who seemed to read minds as we sat and talked and lost track of time.
The food is beautifully presented, and prepared well. The prices are high, but there is a daily special that is an all included menu that kept $$$ under control.
The restaurant itself is beautiful..great colors..a great place for a marriage proposal or anniversary lunch..and the view of the trees and city was perfect.

thanks for a lovely experience.

Great food, wonderful atmosphere and fantastic service. It had a good noise level, which may have been ruined by my group. Sorry 😂😂.

Highly recommend and will definitely be back again.

I love Robert and I had dined at least 30 times. But this was my worst experience. The food wasn’t fresh, seafoods were over cooked and sauce was too salty.

Highly recommend this restaurant on top of the Museum of Arts and Design at Columbus Circle with a gorgeous view of the Central Park. We had brunch there and think it's a great value (more affordable than Korean BBQ and many of the 3 michelin star restaurants in the same area). We enjoyed the brunch menu and drinks too. Would go back again.

I went to Robert for a birthday dinner. You're greeted right in the lobby with a coat check option. My party had a table by the window (a nice plus). The tables are spaced such that you're not on top of other diners, straining to hear your own conversation. Our table received an amuse bouche from the kitchen as soon as we were seated. Our waiter was gracious, professional and attentive. He went to the trouble of addressing me by name, giving me birthday greetings. We enjoyed the food - sliders app, a raw fish app, lamb and fish entrees were very good. I couldn't hear the live jazz from our location but the night was so enjoyable that I didn't miss it (even though jazz was a factor in choosing this spot.) Desserts were also very good, especially the almond blueberry cake. The combination of food, atmosphere and service made this a place I would highly recommend.

Food is very nice and well presented. The view is beyond stunning. I always go before the theatre as all the subways to the theatre district is there.

I love taking out of town guests to this gem of a restaurant. It's tucked away on the 9th floor of the Museum of Design with sweeping views of Columbus Circle and Central Party. The food is always perfection and the service is consistently on point. The location is great as all the theaters and Lincoln Center are just a short walk away.

This was my third visit to this restaurant that I love for the wonderful views over Columbus Circle and Central Park .
unfortunately this time there was this terrible smell of food and fish, I think that must’ve been some kind of trouble with exhaustion in the kitchen.
The food was nothing special I won’t return .
I asked the waiter to speak to the manager but he never came to our table so I guess they don’t care
