    The location was great, the setting was great, the service was great, but the quality of the food preparation disappoint, in view of everything else that was great about the place. I was not what I was used to from Robert. Must be the chef. Music most nights was smart jazz, a great touch.

    Three of us ordered eggs Benedict with lobster and regretted it. The bread overcooked, so small pieces of lobster! This was offered as a main course! And more than half of the plate cover by green leaves like to trying to hide the size of the dish. I am a customer at Robert and use to recommend the restaurant to my friends. Afraid can’t do this anymore?

    Yes, it happened again!We dined at Robert on Valentine's Day. We invited another couple to join us & they were really delighted. Two of us had sea bass & 2 had Bouillabaisse, which all loved. Very fresh fish & seafood, done well, is what Robert does. The special Valentine's menu included lamb chops, steaks & vegan options, too. We also enjoyed live music, a chic decor (it's in the Art & Design Bldg) & a great view. Robert is a NY treasure. I ❤️ this place!

    I took a friend to Robert to celebrate her birthday. We were both in awe of the ambiance, the excellent food, the piano player and the incredible views of Columbus Circle, Central Park and Broadway. If I could give this restaurant 10 stars I would. I found the pricing reasonable and the wine selection was good. I'm already planning my next visit!

    Have dined at Robert several times before, and booked it this go round for a birthday celebration. The location is wonderful and the views of the city from the restaurant are stunning. Our food was quite good, but the wait service was spotty at best. The wrong order was brought to our table multiple times and more than one member of the wait staff took our order---essentially, no one seemed to quite know what was going on. That being said, the service was friendly. Unfortunately, the evening ended on a sour note when I attempted to use an Open Table dining reward, one that was specifically applied to this restaurant reservation through the app. The manager was rude and dismissive in refusing to honor the reward and should have been far more courteous. He basically told me that I need to "contact Open Table" and that the reward has "nothing to do with us." All in all, there are plenty of other great dining options in the area at this price point, ones where the organization and service are far superior. It's not really worth paying high prices for lackluster service.
