    Place has an amazing view, ambiance is cozy and the food is good. I think it's a little bit overpriced but in general the service helps to enhance the experience. The wine variety could be much better.

    I had crab stuffed shrimp with jalapeño mashed potatoes. The flavors perfectly complimented each other and the presentation was beautiful. The chef offered a complimentary canapé which was delicious. Located on the 10th floor. Loved the ambiance and the view, as two sides of the restaurant are glass. Staff attentive and friendly. Will definitely return on my next trip to the city.

    Please go. Roberts is amazing. The view is outstanding especially end of light then darkness when all the lights are on. The food is delicious, the presentation incredible and the service just perfect. Not too intrusive but on call enough as needed. I recommend Roberts for special occasions or just because. We had a memorial evening. Thankyou from Australia.

    Robert has been a favorite for years but last nights music was VERY VERY invasive, far too loud to have conversations. That was a disappointment! Music would have been lovely had it been background, not so overwhelming. Also, we needed 5:45 reservation, which became 6:15, a rush to get to concert…

    Our 2nd visit to Robert was just as enjoyable as the first - we are hoping for a window table next time - I need to call earlier. We enjoyed the food - the mushroom soup, octopus, branzino, scottish salmon, steak frites, and citrus pomme puree. The piano player and singer were a nice addition to the evening.

    A big disappointment dining at this restaurant. I specifically requested for window seats for Columbus Circle and Central Park view when I made the reservation. We got the corner table at the back near coat room with a disgusting view of dirty/stained wall of the restaurant. Definitely won’t return.

    As always, Robert delivers another fantastic evening dining experience. I consider this restaurant a hidden gem in NYC. The views of Central Park are second to none as is the quality of their food and the excellent service you will receive. A special shout out to the host who made the Janesville, WI connection! Thank you for spending a few extra minutes talking with my brother and his wife. This is the restaurant where I always take people visiting NYC. The chicken and ribeye both were terrific as was the the bomboloni dessert. They have a superb wine list. You cannot go wrong with this restaurant, and I will continue to be a happy patron.

    It's our 3rd time and although we enjoyed our experiences during previous times, this year the service was disappointing. First our party of 5 was seated in a 6 people table so we had to move the table around and one of us sat at the end of the table and throughout the lunch we had to ask for water, our drinks and our wine which came late.
