We had a wonderful time visiting from Australia. Wait staff were very helpful and attentive and the food was delicious. We were fortunate enough to get a table by the window and the views over Central Park are pretty. Thank you, will recommend this venue for a special occasion.

The view was great but the food (vegetarian) was fine at best mediocre. We wish we knew this earlier and wouldn't have wasted so much money on brunch.

I recommend Robert to everone I know, going to NY! I love the place, the food and the nice atmosphere! I stopped by twice, at my last time in NY. We even managed to get a table by the window with short notice. I always feel special at Robert, due to the High standard of service and attention from the staff.

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.

Robert continues to please on every level. Joe, our server was both charming and informative. I asked for a window table and received it. Both my friend and I have hosted guests at parties there. So it’s simply tops.

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!!!
