We were a group of six women of a certain age, requesting a table in the window area making a reservation two weeks ahead. We were front and center in the windows glorious views of Columbus Circle and Central Park all the way to Fifth Avenue. We were treat royally by our waiter and staff. The food and wine recommendations were perfect for us, the duck and lamb chops two outstanding entrees. We were there to talk and catch-up on our summers, our waiter pacing everything around our cues. Just fantastic, a dessert treat on the house ended the evening on a very sweet note, and they even processed six separate credit cards and gave each of us our own lovely pink pens to sign our our receipts in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

The view is, of course, spectacular, and the restaurant décor is very 'energetic'.
The elevator wait was atrocious; there was maintenance in progress, and all the artistic patrons stopped at every floor, getting on and off VERY slowly. An express up would be nice, then letting them all get off or on during the elevator down cycle would be a nice improvement. Yes/no?
Robert was a little busy, and the actual wait for table service went on for a bit, perhaps 10-15 minutes.
The service itself was pleasant, efficient and friendly, very nice.
The Beet salad was terrific, and the Angus burger was delicious, prepared as asked.
I was perfectly pleased with the menu, although my companion thought the selections were limited & narrow. I had been to Robert before, and was pleased to have the same genial waiter.
I have been twice for lunch, and look forward to returning for dinner.

Celebrating my wife’s birthday, I wanted something special. Robert did not disappoint. We had a window table for two overlooking Columbus Circle. The views of Broadway and Central Park were eye catching. The food, cocktails and service was excellent. Thanks Robert for making my wife’s birthday memorable.

We fell in love with Robert and actually went 3 times during our recent 5-day visit to NYC! We had dinner, lunch and then back for Sunday brunch so we got to experience different menus & specials although the "core" menu does not change. The food is AMAZING, fresh and delicious and we had great service every time. Make reservations in advance and ask for a table by a window as the view over Central Park is breathtaking day or night. Extra bonus is to ask your waiter for two free passes to then walk through the 6 floors below the resturant which is the NYC Art & Design Musuem. Will be back!

Our server was Henry and he was efficient, friendly and had good recommendation about the wine.
The wine list was extensive and easy to read. The wines were from known, classic wineries but also from small unknown wineries.
The food was very well prepared and beautifully laid out.

The desert was outstanding including the cheese selection, one of us selected.

If you make your reservation in advance you can request a window view. There are very few for 2. Do it.

My fourth or fifth time here and it doesn’t disappoint! We went pre concert for dinner and were given a window table as promised— the food was excellent. The service was about 90%; had to look for the server once or twice. Overall an outstanding dinner!! Will be back, hopefully soon. 😎
I almost forgot! Fantastic live music elevated the already-amazing ambience to A++!

Nice Central Park view... amazing restaurant!
Just be sure your table will be in the window... the most amazing experience (food, wine and view).
PS. I was in the lunch time.
The service took its time but was worthy to wait for the food.
I strongly recommend and I will be back for sure!!!

On Monday I took my 6-year-old son to a restaurant called “Robert” so that my son, who is Japanese, could practice speaking to the waitstaff in English and also learn how to behave like a gentleman. Before we went, I contacted the restaurant. And now, I’d like to thank all the staff for helping us. They gave us a very nice table near the window and treated Toshi as a real gentleman. They called him “sir” and addressed me as “your lady”. When they took an order from him, they crouched down to his level and spoke slowly, but also seriously, showing the little gentleman great respect. When one of the waiters noticed my son wanted to take a photo with me, he approached and asked nicely, “sir, would you like me to take photos with your lady?” When my son could not reply quickly, they were so patient and tried to help him without embarrassing him. During our lunch, they really cared about us a lot too. I was really, truly impressed and thankful to the Robert staff.
My son was proud of himself because he could treat me as a lady and make me happy that day. He opened the door, pushed the elevator button, and took care of everything at the restaurant for me. And now, I feel that he looks a bit more mature than before. This could not have happened without the help of Robert’s staff. They are a great restaurant - not only their food and service but also their warmhearted generosity toward the customers, which is more than five stars. Arigato, Robert. You made our date so romantic and special.

This is a great place for app, drink and a view. Excellent view, window request was accommodated, but cooking was subpar. Excellent wine (Gigondas) at proper temp. Turbot appetizer was tasteless. Risotto was more paste than creamy rissotto - nothing remained of risotto grains at all. Lamb was "ok", I found it lower quality animal lacking flavor. Maybe based on recent reviews, kitchen is having an off week....

Although the ambiance and views are both outstanding, the food was very disappointing. We ordered the Chicken Á La Financier and Pork Tenderloin & Pork Belly entrees. The Chicken Á La Financier was fine. However, the Pork Tenderloin & Pork Belly entree arrived as two chunks Pork Tenderloin with the Pork Belly comprised of two thick chunks of thick fat, with a thin layer of meat at the bottom. Although our server specified that the chef prefers to serve the Pork Tenderloin medium, and I heard other servers specifying to other guests that the chef prefers to serve the Pork Tenderloin medium, the Pork Tenderloin arrived very well done and extremely dry. The thin layer of Pork Belly meat at the bottom of the thick chunks of fat was tasty, but the thick chunks of fat was very unappetizing

After asking for a window table through Open Table was told that all window tables required a 4 weeks in advance reservation. Got ignore by service in my table back in Siberia for a while...in other ways very disappointed ! Funny that my dinner guest had rented the whole place for an event years back...I guess you guys screw it up with him too!

Incredibly cool space - food NOT so much as was the wine list - a very common/ordinary stroll through Total Wine X 6 or more in price -
A great view with a hefty price tag!!

The Robert has long been one of my go-to places. I am very disappointed by the terrible experience I had on my most recent visit. The wait staff completely ignored us, the food was not cooked well. The octopus was undercooked and rubbery, the duck was over cooked and dry. The dishes came out cold. I would have sent the dishes back but the server never came over to ask how the food was. We were also given incorrect information regarding a food allergy (gluten). We had to waive down our service to clear our appetizer when the main dish came out. Completely inattentive and disappointing food. I am disappointed that I will not be going back The Robert after this experience. I hope the restuarant can get back to what it once was.
