    Our second visit. With great view, ideal for tourists. So for locals, to be avoided. We will not be returning.

    For a birthday treat, four diners had a lovely early dinner at Robert. We were the first to arrive that evening, and we were seated at a window table, with the best view of the park. Really nice. The food is always good. And the birthday girl got a courtesy little sweet from Robert, with a lit candle. Charming. There was pianist at one end of the room who played nice, quiet standards that complimented the room and allowed for conversation -- something kind of hard to find these days; so hard to have conversation with with loud music in restaurants. Robert is always a choice for a special and classy dinner.

    Nice restaurant with a great view. It’s a good midrange dining experience that isn’t too pretentious or too expensive. But the service and ambience feel like you’re treating yourself to something special.

    We had a delicious and exquisite anniversary dinner here last night. The staff was welcoming as soon as we arrived and throughout the night. The pianist enhanced the lovely décor and the view was spectacular. The menu offered interesting choices and the food was beautifully presented. We especially enjoyed the Elderflower drink, the black sea bass and the pavlova was outstanding and so pretty.

    Wonderful ambiance, but took 25 min to get our check and the requested split was wrong. Food was excellent overall, but one member of our party felt the vegetables which came with the Roasted Chicken were disappointing on otherwise excellent food experience across the other courses.

    Service was exceptional, Food and the overall experience was good. During the middle of dinner the staff offered a table with a view of Columbus circle - thanks to the staff. There was a minor trouble where they prepared our entree with mushroom when we had informed about mushroom allergy while ordering. Mistakes happen and they were kind enough to fix it in the new order and also offered us a free dessert, which shows the great hospitality from the restaurant. Although the restaurant food was good, I found it to be as decent as any restaurants in nyc. I doubt I will consider this place for the next special occasions. I will recommend this place to others for the great view and hospitality. May be it was just me not so impressed with the food - and probably, my vegetarian diet further restricted me from enjoying.

    We were celebrating our granddaughter’s graduation and we picked the perfect spot. A table by the window provided spectacular views of Central Park. Our waiter made our granddaughter and her friend feel special, and the kitchen sent out a chocolate treat at dessert. We had a variety of entrees and all were delicious. The only slight negative was it took forever to get and pay our bill. Overall, a really wonderful evening!
