We waited for a table by a window. The overhang made it much quieter.
Our waiter had great suggestions and the food was delicious. It was also presented beautifully.

Steak was over cooked and tough. Sent it back and second one was undercooked. Butter for bread was so salty I just didn’t even eat the bread. Service was slow. Waited long for check and to order.

Restaurant is nice inside but food and service is not worth the price.

Robert is exceptional. As spectacular a view as any restaurant in NYC. The room itself is literally a work of contemporary art. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable and pleasant without hovering over us. A real pro. And, oh yeah, the food was great. Not Michelin Star exquisite, but great nonetheless. Unpretentious, properly priced and tasty. Neither heavy nor light. Nice. Good selection of wines by the glass and a dozen or so beers to choose from too. Try the tempura shishito peppers for a great appetizer.

We were seated next to a huge tv screen promoting the museum which was extremely distracting for a restaurant at this price point. The food was fine nothing we’d return for. The chicken was very dry, the seafood ravioli was just ok and a similar review for the bronzino and the risotto. I’m sure the view is the attraction but to land one of those tables we were told we had to reserve months ahead.

Beautiful atmosphere, views and live piano music. To start, our server brought each of us a spoonful of salmon tartar. Our table ordered the lamb, the duck, the salmon and fish of the day. Each presentation was a work of art. Everyone felt that their dish was the best that they had ever had. Service was prompt and every need satisfied. We didn’t order dessert but our server brought individual fruit cups for each of us, so thoughtful.

I've been wanting to try Robert for several years, mainly because I see it from the Appel Room every time I attend a performance at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

So, I finally got to try it and had high expectations. We were fortunate to have a window table which provides a fabulous view of Columbus Circle, Central Park, etc. The service was very attentive and pleasant. The space is wonderful and I felt like I was in a really cool restaurant in London for some reason.

The major disappointment was the food! Even the bread wasn't good.

We were 2 dining. Ordered 3 apps and 2 entrees. Tuna, octopus and kale salad apps. Chicken and duck entrees. For a restaurant of this level and pricing, the food should have been levels above what we experienced. Most of it was flat tasting, the salad one of the least impressive I've had in a fine dining establishment, tuna completely bland, octopus 1 tentacle with a weird tasting sauce on the plate.

Entrees duck nothing special, skin not crispy, not much flavor or texture; chicken 1 piece was good the other overcooked and tough.

I'd return to Robert since it's such a unique space with a wonderful view and service though I'd ensure to order completely different selections.

It was a beautiful decor and with jazz playing in the background was a wonderful way to have brunch.
Service is good not rushed. The only surprising thing was about billing; surprised they charge you for each refill of hot or ice coffee otherwise the food was good.
Nice view from the windows.

Bathrooms were worse than any truck stop I have been - abysmal odor and only one bathroom operating. Grateful I went on way out rather than during meal - service was outstanding otherwise.
