Roberts never disappoints - lovely view, good food, and great service. My only complaint was that the music was a little loud in our corner - my husband wears a hearing aid and loud music is really a problem for him. Otherwise its great.

My spouse and I had a wonderful experience at Robert in 2016, so we decided to return again. This time around the food wasn't fresh and my filet wasn't medium rare as requested. Overall the food was OK. The waitress brought her very bad mood to our dining experience. Earlier in the evening, I called to check and see if we could get a reservation earlier than 10:00 which I had booked on Open Table and the hostess advised us to come in about 15 minutes early. When we arrived a bit earlier, there were many tables available. Because it was my husband's birthday I had requested a table near the window. I realize this request can't be guaranteed, but there were tables available by the window and no one was ever seated in those areas. If I am going to spend the money(a bit pricey) for a very nice dining experience, I will return to one of our favorites such as River Cafe. Very disappointed.

It was my fifth time in Robert and food was perfect as usual. The noise was unusual, but I think it was due to the holidays. Too many people in festive mood. We didn't see any other flaw and, if there was one, it would be forgiven : I had made a reservation only 2 weeks before, so we didn't get a window table; I called the restaurant a few times to remind them that I would love to seat my guest by the window, I had promised her, and it was her birthday, please if there's a cancelation, please give it to us! We arrived without knowing the miracle had happened! Surprise du chef: We were conducted to a table just by the window, to a fabulous view of the Central Park covered in snow. My friend was ecstatic. And I am a fan of Robert forever.

If you want a happy environment with great light and views, good food, good service, no blaring music and, all things considered, fair prices — this is a your exceptional place.

Second time here. Location is wonderful with views over Columbus Circle. Vibrant atmosphere and cool decor. Food is good but it's just not quite there. Some dishes are trying too hard with too many competing flavours (poached pear salad) and others were just underwhelming and seemed to have the wrong pairing of ingredients such as scallops and citrus mash potato which you couldn't taste the citrus in at all. There are better places for great food in NY.

Lovely place to eat. We were given best table for the view looking straight up Broadway . Waitress was very friendly and advised us on food selection and places to visit in New York. We had soup for starters, duck and salmon for mains with banana mouse for dessert. All well presented and delicious.

Food and service was top notch. The room itself Is not that comfortable. Noticed that patrons were dressed as though going to a fast food joint. The greeters on the 9th floor were not what you would expect from a high end place. Very sleepy and looked as though they wanted to be elsewhere. All in all we would go back but we expected somewhat more of an upscale experience

Party of 5 friends visited Robert NYC for my birthday dinner! The food was amazing, everyone loved their meals and the drinks were really great! I had the lamb chops (def some of the best I've had) ! The chef sent over a complimentary tasting item and our waiter was so attentive and kind!

I would've loved to have the view from the window seating (those book out weeks in advance, so If that's a preference book early!) but even without sitting at the window, the ambience was nice.

I would come back and dine at Robert any time the opportunity presents itself! Highly recommend :)

Each of us had a different main course, rack of lamb, branzino and moqueca, and all of us raved about the preparation. For desert we enjoyed one very generous order of bombolini . Our waiter was very attentive but not intrusive. The decor and the view are spectacular. We will be back.

The reception from coat check on the ground floor to seating in the bar and later at a table with stunning views was cordial and professional. The same goes for table service. You might think everything is all about high style with stunningly contemporary design elements, but food presentation complements components of the space. The wild mushroom pastry appetizer was flaky and tasty. The lamb chop main course was cooked perfectly medium rare and was delicious. Raves were heard for the lobster. Desserts are magical and all look and taste out of the ordinary. This is perfect as a special occasion experience! Guaranteed to wow.

Picked this place to celebrate my anniversary and it was one of the best dinning experiences I've ever had. The staff is attentive, professional and passionate about creating an amazing night for us. They worked with me on a special surprise for my girlfriend and even offered a complimentary sample from the chef. The food was superb and pretty filling. I recommend their mashed potatoes and fresh in house made ice cream. INCREDIBLE place, and I hope to be back soon!

Robert liegt am Columbus Circle in New York. Wir haben wie gewünscht einen Fensterplatz bekommen. Traumhafte Aussicht auf die nächtlich belebte Straße!
Essen war sehr gut und Bedienung sehr aufmerksam und angenehm.
Preis - Leitungsverhältnis lässt sich mit "sehr abgehoben" vielleicht am Besten beschreiben.
