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 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.
