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.

They are grossly overpricing their time wines. $16 retail bottle is going for $53. A glass of wine that should be $8-9 (bottle is around $27 at retailers) was $17.

I had the cheeseburger. It was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious! It was accompanied by a generous serving of fries. My husband had seen chicken marsala on their online menu but it was not on the menu. He asked the waiter for it anyhow. The waiter reported that the chef would prepare that dish for my husband. He really enjoyed it. We hadn't been to this restaurant in quite some time but will certainly return soon!

Hostess was rude. Waiter was nice but disappeared for long periods of time, wanted to order wine with dinner, but by the time he came back everyone was done eating.

It was our first time .... we will be back. Passed it a number of times but didn’t know it was there. Easy reservations, sat down right away, service was good. Sausage and peppers were outstanding. We all had something different and so enjoyed it!

Very expensive for “everyday” dining. They need more choices for those not wanting a big meal. They also need more healthful choices.

Excellent North Shore American bistro with a good bar scene. The menu is varied and the service is attentive and all in all Bobbys is a great place to 'see and be seen'.

I was very disappointed that they would not let me have a small taste of the pasta instead of potatoes. With my chicken. Overall the food was good but not great. The menu has been changed significantly.

I wanted to check out the pasta for the future. I offered to pay for a small portion but they said I would have to order a pasta entrée As if I wanted to taste

We split a skirt steak medium rare and it came out well, so we sent it back. It came out medium and was fair.

The steak was dry and burnt and inedible, my mother’s Brussels sprouts were also inedible. Too overpriced.
The server was mia after he served us the entrees, and I had to remind him to bring us a desert menu. The place used to be great, definitely went downhill. Will not be returning.

I’m always willing to pay good money for good food, but the ceviche which had crab and shrimp was just not good and my son and I (we are both foodies who have eaten lots of ceviche couldn’t eat it). It had a fishy taste. I would lose the crab you use and replace it with something else, like tuna.

The steak, a full size filet with a significant price tag, was overcooked. More medium well than medium rare. The cauliflower was bland. Didn’t taste much seasoning. The mashed potatoes were very good.

It was loud. I had trouble hearing my son speak.

The service. The waitperson was not unfriendly but seemed disinterested. Just going through the motions and rarely checking in.

I eat out a lot. I take no pleasure in writing a not so good review, but if I’m definitely not going to return or recommend a place to a friend I want the owners to know why.

It’s plenty busy in your restaurant so I know you don’t need my business.

Had previously enjoyed Bobby's, but not this time. 2-of-3 meals were just OK. Service was terrible.

Arugula Salad and Bobby's Burger (once the bean sprouts were removed) were fantastic. Caprese Salad, Ceviche, and Beet Salad were unimpressive. Banana Cake was awesome!

Unfortunately, our server was gruff, disinterested, hurried, and oft-absent. Drinks took a loooong time for a quiet Monday evening. We had our share of bread, so the sparkle of crumbs all over a black table cloth remained for most of the evening.

I felt charging extra to ask for salsa vs the sauce that came with my entree was a bit insulting.

The noise level was so great I couldn't hear the person I was sharing dinner with. That level of noise ruined my experience at the restaurant. Too bad, because it really is a good place. Sorry to have to report this.

If I was to have any negative comment, it would be that we felt a little rushed.
At a restaurant of this caliber, one should not be served the main course, before finishing the appetizer.

I’ve been to Bobby’s many times and I’ve always had a good experience. This time I did not. If I could give the service no stars I would. It completely ruined our experience. I was charged for items I didn’t have. Drinks were wrong, we went 30-40 minutes at a tint without seeing our server. When she did show up she was awful.
