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.

The staff was amazing... they were very kind and caring.. Yes obviously the location is good too but it would be nothing if it wasn't for the great staff! they surprised us with a little treat because it was me and my husbands wedding anniversary.

you can see the Columbus statue and Trump tower.. which is a bit of an unfortunate backdrop but we were there to see the central park and focused on that..

コロナウィルスで世の中が落ち着かない時に、日本からの友人とランチで利用させて頂きました。セントラルパークを見渡せる席で、美味しいアメリカのお料理を楽しむことが出来て感謝してます。サービスも素晴らしく、ウィルスに対しての細やかな対策も、とても信頼できました。
そして!何と店内に忘れてしまった携帯を、きちんと保管しておいて下さった!本当にアメリカでは無理だと思っていたので、お店のスタッフの方々が素晴らしいのだと、改めて感動しました。ありがとうございました。また利用させて頂きます。

Food was dull and came barely warm. I have been to the Robert before, and had a wonderful experience, but not this time around. Food was totally unremarkable. I hope you can improve your services . I had the Robert in high regard, and still remember previous experiences.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Great environment with a wonderful view of the circle. The staff were very attentive and polite. The eating experience was that much better with all of that factored in. Great options on the menu, well done.

food is always delicious and artfully presented. You cant beat the view, and the staff is polite and attentive. one of my favorite NYC spots - for business lunch or special occasion. prix fixe is a great deal - but the mushroom soup, pastas and quinoa nicoise salad are also favorites.

It was altogether perfect. I think coronavirus might have been responsible for our having a perfect quiet table at a window. Our waitress was lovely - and I want to stop by with an additional tip ( I’m a terrible tip figure- outer.). The birthday surprise was so sweet. Many thanks to all.

really it is about the views IF you are seated near or at the windows
the vibe is fine
we had the Smoked Salmon Benedict. Portions were LARGE (two eggs etc and alot of potatoes along with a basket of rolls),
The English Muffin needed to be crisper, the Hollandaise a bit more, the salmon and roe garnish were perfect.

Our group of four came to Robert for brunch to celebrate a friend's milestone birthday. We couldn't have been more delighted with our experience. Our server was attentive and personable, he even brought us a complimentary extra dessert with a birthday wish, and each a glass of Muscat adding to the celebration. The food was artfully served, as well as, delicious. And, the view as beautiful as we remembered (two of us had dined at Robert previously). Overall, Robert was an outstanding choice for our celebration!

The service staff was wonderful. Attentive, polite. The place is beautiful and if you can get the window seat..what a lovely view that includes the park.
For the price point...the food was disappointing. And there are too many great restaurants in the city to get mediocre food at that price point. Shame, otherwise, pricey for a room with a view.

We chose this restaurant because of the great view and it lived up to that, but overall we were disappointed. The food was above average and ambiance was non-existent except for the view. We were seated at a table by the window where my husband looked into a walled mirror which was very odd.
