We had brunch and it was a really nice experience. The food and service was great. The best thing of all was sitting by the window with the wonderful view and Columbus Circle and Central Park.

The original reservation was for noon. I got delayed at a doctors appointment. Gracious reorganizing time. Great table with enough space for me to park my walker. Great crab cakes, delicious coffee, interesting dessert. Lovely hostess and server. Leisurely catch up with a dear friend.

We love it here! We go for special occasions, usually.... if you want a window table, make sure to make reservations well in advance. Food is delicious, service is beyond accommodating, and atmosphere is lovely. All around great experience! And not overly priced to go for non-celebratory meals.

Ambiance was wonderful. Lovely Room and lovely views. And rest of the experience was a disappointment. Waiter forgot to bring our drinks and had to be reminded to bring them after he brought our salad. Food was merely average at best. Rigatoni tasted like canned tomato sauce, lamb shank was OK but nothing special. I guess we should have ordered the fish. Overall a big disappointment and not worthy of the hype. We will not be back .

Robert is great. Service was a bit slow, we were sitting for some time without attracting server’s attention.
View is amazing and food was good

Great restaurant, food was high quality and portion size was generous (but be careful with this).
The lobster pasta was one of the best cooked dishes we ate in New York (and we went to quite a few 'high end' places during our trip). The table next to us arrived part way through our meal with two children and a nanny we though the children might be a bit noisy but they were fine instead the parents had a massive row in Italian and English. So a great meal and a show!

Overall we had a great time. Food was great. Only thing the service was a little slow. I do not know if it was our waiter - not attentive. A table near us was seated after us but got their bread basket first - we had to ask for ours.

Our server was Joe and he was an absolute delight! The view over Columbus Circle was incredible, especially at night. The food was fantastic in both taste and presentation. Highly recommend the Wagyu sliders as an appetizers. Most dishes are between 30$-40$. All in all, one of the best places for the value in Manhattan!

The view is wonderful but only if you get a table by the windows, which you need to reserve for three weeks in advance. The staff is very kind and accommodating, great service, however the food is underwhelming, tasteless, under seasoned and just plain bad. We had 3 courses and there was nothing special about them, which make them overpriced. I would not recommend this restaurant despite the great service, it does not make up for the terrible food.

Our son and the woman he lives with decided it was time for us to meet her parents, who live in Philadelphia. Robert was the perfect setting for us to entertain them on this special occasion - elegant setting, beautiful view, delicious food and drink. Not an inexpensive meal, but we hit a home run. Everyone had a great time!

We were thrilled to be shown to a window table as per my request as this was a birthday lunch. Delightful experience, great service and food... and with a view!!

I took my partner here for her birthday and the experience was one we'll never forget.
We were accommodated with a window table which was beautiful, especially considering I'd only booked 2 days before.

The food was sublime. Many restaurants with prices in this category skimp on their portions but the serving sizes were absolutely perfect. My partner was also given birthday cake bites with a candle on the plate to commemorate the occasion.

The ambience of the restaurant couldn't be more perfect. Between the views of Central Park, Columbus Circle, as well as the dim lighting and piano playing in the background, Robert is the quintessential New York experience. One that these two Australian travellers will never forget.

So firstly the staff were exceptional. There was a mistake in our order but I'm only saying this because they fixed it immediately and totally to satisfaction. Food was origional and varied. From starters to dessert. Unique cocktails. Lived the decor. Thank you for a wonderful anniversary dinner.

Window table, live music and view made this worthwhile, otherwise not.
Service was sometimes condescending, dismissive and inconsistent. Checked on us infrequently and took a very long time to get drinks - longer than to receive food.
Hostesses showed favoritism in seating. We had a reservation, were on time and dressed very appropriately (as many others seemed not to be). Food was very average - frittata was flavorless. Mushroom soup was bizarre. French toast was by far the best item ordered at our table.
For context purposes, we have vacationed in Manhattan over 20 times and travel domestically and internationally on a regular basis.

The food is very good and the service depends on the particular server. But if you go for the view, you must be aware that requests are honored in a non-transparent manner. Therfore, you should call ahead of time to find out if management is prepared to honor your request. You should also be aware that they fit a party of 5 in a square 4-person table.
