Dear Robert: Thank you very much for making this so special for us, particularly for my boyfriend whose birthday was on Feb 26 (and he's never been at your place)! Thank you also for the prime window table, my favorite area! I'm so glad you're back in business and I'm looking forward to visiting often!!! The food was excellent, particularly the branzino and the Crottin de Chavignol (beet salad with the breaded/fried cheese centerpiece...) Since I mentioned when I made a reservation that it's a special day, my boyfriend was thrilled to blow a candle on your little birthday-surprise plate. Very thoughtful, much appreciated! We enjoyed every minute, thank you so much!

We enjoyed an early dinner with my family at Roberts, after visiting MAD. Online booking was easy, (and I could modify it later without an issue). The restaurant called us to confirm it. The view from the restaurant is amazing. The food was delicious and exciting (French and Italian s dishes). The waiter was polite, and remembered all of our requests. The food arrived timely -not too soon, not too late. We had a nice time there.

Each course looked like a work of art - and tasted even better! The view is spectacular. It’s quite a swanky venue, yet everyone made us feel right at home. We’re going back again, and soon. HIGHLY recommend Robert!

Robert was OUTSTANDING. From Peter as maitre d to Aaron as our server, everything was pitch perfect, and my coworkers & I felt wildly taken care of. All COVID-19 precautions are taken into account and due to it, the restaurant feels beautifully private. The chef sent out a couple hor d'ouerves that were simply delectable & secured the fact that will be returning again. I didn't love the cocktails, but every single bite and look of the food made up for any potential issue. The vibe is beautiful and upscale, and the prices reflect that. It's easy to get lost in the atmosphere of Robert, and I look forward to coming back again.

Robert is an oasis of outstanding service, delectable food, and charm in the heart of Columbus circle.
The food includes staples such as fish, chicken, and steak prepared with the finest ingredients and presented with real flair.
At a time when so many restaurants are serving $20 cocktails in red plastic takeout cups, you’ll appreciate the efforts made by the staff at Robert to ensure your visit is top notch.

This was my 2nd time in the past year at Robert, and we thought the food was very good, in a beautiful restaurant with great ambience. But there was an issue that ruined the whole experience.
We showed up promptly for our 6:00 reservation to a nearly empty restaurant. There were two of us, and we ordered a salad and an appetizer to share to start. They were brought out to us together, and the martini I ordered came shortly afterwards. Then our entrees arrived shortly after our salad and appetizer were cleared. After eating my daughter had a cappuccino and I had a cup of tea. As my daughter was taking her last sip of her cappuccino and I was halfway through my tea, the manager came up with the bill and told us they were at their seating capacity (due to the pandemic) and had a party waiting for our table and that we needed to leave. It was a couple of minutes before 8:00, so we had been there a little under two hours. I quickly finished my tea.
At first I didn’t know what to say, so when he came back a minute later to get my card to pay I told him that although I understood that he was in a difficult situation, I thought he could have handled it better. I suggested either explaining to the party waiting that a table would be available shortly and offer them a drink m, or offer us the tea and cappuccino gratis as we had no more then ten minutes to finish them. I have managed fine dining restaurants in the past so I have had some experience to draw upon. He responded that they allot 1.5 hours per table. I then told him that about two hours in my previous experience was not unusual for fine dining. We left and I expressed my dissatisfaction and let him know that I will now never come back.
There was another table that came a couple of minutes in after we had, and were still enjoying their beverages while we were asked to leave. Before gratuity the bill was $150, and I was astounded that we were told we had to end our visit.
I’ll never come back. Very poor.

The most divine dining experience I have had during my 3 years in NYC! Peter took care of us and made sure everything was perfect. Stunning views that are just as visible at night as they are in the day. Absolutely delicious food. A great idea for a special occasion in an intimate setting.
