Bobby’s Deerfield is based loosely on our other location Café Lucci which we have developed since 1995. Similar to Café Lucci, Bobby’s Deerfield will serve as a true neighborhood locale, marked by our signature personal service and unmatched friendly atmosphere. However, Bobby’s Deerfield will be a more casual eatery, completely accessible in every way. Reminiscent of the iconic, nostalgic neighborhood restaurant of yesteryear, Bobby’s Deerfield will bring graciousness back to dining out, in a simple way, by turning out the best product and best service.

Did service was kind of warm accommodating and patient. I took two friends there for the first time and they were so impressed particularly they have delicious their lunches work. We had a lovely time sitting outside under the sun protection of a giant umbrella. We lingered comfortably for longer than I thought we would

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Service was excellent. I'm sorry that we didn't take advantage of the outdoor seating which looked very nice, but the humidity was high. Will go back there again.

Always good. Extensive wine list. Great bourbon drinks.
Food is fabulous. Had the sesame encrusted tuna which was perfectly cooked and really delicious. One of my favorite restaurants!

Bobby’s is a reliable and pleasant option for dinner. But on this latest visit, there were some aspects that were not customer-friendly. The separate upcharges for a crust on a steak, and then a second upcharge for a sauce seemed excessive. And then, our waitress was clearly following a script when her recommendation for dinner was in fact one of those steaks, together with the two distinct add on charges. Also, I ordered the stuffed pork chop (which I had ordered on previous visits). It was so over-cooked that it was virtually inedible. But, other folks in our party truly enjoyed their food. We will certainly try again.

I was a bit disappointed in the salad. I just thought it would be tastier. My cousins loved their burgers, though. Their fries were great, also, and the sautéed cauliflower, delicious.

Our food was good; not terrific. What interfered with our enjoyment was the surly service. We had companions whose allergies would have affected her enjoyment had they not been reviewed. Our server was very curt and did not really want to provide any substitutions or eliminations of certain spices.
As a reputedly important restaurant in the Deerfield area, it is important that patrons' needs be accommodated.

A minor complaint with the preparation of one dish...lots of carmelized onions in a carbonara pasta...lead to a discussion with the general manager. Stephanie graciously offered a dessert which the house comped. We have eaten here regularly since the restaurant first opened and will continue as customers, just no vegetables except garlic in the carbonara, please chef.

Dinner at Bobby's was yummy! We ate outside on their patio which a nice and shady. We all enjoyed our meals! 2 of us had the chicken paillard -it was delicious. My husband had the cavatelli and loved it! Our friend had the gnocchi which he said was delicious! The prices aren't bad for the quality! Very nice place!

Had a business lunch here. Service was great - respectful of minimizing the interruptions, while still making sure the meal moved along appropriately. Pretty quiet at lunch time, so easy to have business discussions without having to shout over background noise. Food was good, as always, with nice lunch-sized portions. Overall, a good experience.

Normally, I love this place but this time my table was given away while escorting my date into the restaurant from the parking lot (we met at the restaurant and it was raining) and then after ordering a bottle of wine was told that the kitchen was closed for the evening (7:45pm). Had to pay for the bottle and find another restaurant nearby to have dinner. Very disappointing.

We were seated immediately upon arriving. The bread with garlic spread was delicious. The Caesar salad was disappointing with very little dressing. The salmon special with orange sauce was very good. The halibut was very flavorful. The only negative was the price which was $30 for the fish entrees. I thought that was way too high. I will return for one of the items on the menu not the specials.

A lovely evening on the patio. The service was very good. My husband and I shared several items and the kitchen split the items in the kitchen. This was our first time at the restaurant but we will return

Dinner last night was inconsistent. The main entrees were good but the mussels and crab legs were terrible.
The mussels were not fresh.
The waitress never returned to check on us. We sent food back with the bus boy but he did not understand what was wrong. It was a frustrating evening and we would not go back.

Bobbys is a gem! The atmosphere, food quality and variety and wine selection all add up to a great experience. The reception staff is not very friendly which is not very welcoming, but the overall experience is worth it once you make it past the front desk! Our waiter was very helpful with great suggestions, but was truly running in many directions at once. My husband had the dover sole which was prepared to perfection. I had the special gnocchi with shrimp and kale and it was delicious! The vanilla gelato was creamy and refreshing.

Couldn’t be worse if they tried. Obnoxious waitress. Even after I told her 3-4 times I wanted my burger MEDIUM WELL, I get served a bloody burger. She had the nerve to stand there and argue with me. She took it back and even though I repeated MEDIUM WELL, it comes back like a well done hockey puck. It was finally then that she admitted she wrote my order as Medium. Seriously? You have one job and you can’t take a burger order. Even though the chef made me the RIGHT burger, I had to wait at least 20 more minutes. My dining friend had finished and then I awkwardly ate. By this time I had lost my appetite. Plus our water glasses were never filled the entire night. Just a horrible experience.

We had an early reservation, upon arrival there was only one party dining on the patio, we requested the patio and was informed by the host it was closed. We were seated in the dining room, had our dinner and when we were leaving we noticed the patio was almost full with diners. We were very disappointed, it was a beautiful evening and the primary reason we went to Bobby’s Deerfield was to dine on the patio. Their are many other friendly restaurants on the North Shore with patios to consider!!!
