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.

Unfortunately our service was lacking tonight. Our server took more than 10 minutes to greet us, in fact we had to ask the staff to find our waiter. Once he arrived to the table he saw we had drinks and asked if we wanted any appetizers as my sister didn’t even get to order her drink. he didn’t present the specials to us or explain the special holiday menu. We had to ask for the specials, we had to again ask the staff to find our waiter so we could order. The food was very good, however the service was not what we typically receive when dining at Bobby’s.

We brought friends who had not been there before. The food was good but the service was terrible! Our waitress didn’t even take our order as she was too busy and didn’t deliver food either or come back to ask for another round of drinks. Very disappointing.

I have eaten at Bobby's many times and enjoyed it BUT this time something was off. Our waitress seemed very mixed up and asked the same questions over and over again -example ("do you want anything to drink?" "I will just have water " ) She asked me about 6 times. I ordered the Beet salad with salmon add on. The salmon smelled weird. My friend also had a salad with salmon and hers smelled fine. I then decided to completely change to a different salad.( I was grossed out) I told the waitress no dressing at all. I repeated a few times. Well my salad can drenched in salad dressing. I was embarrassed but did tell them to replace it for a salad without the dressing. One friend was waiting still for her burger that came pretty much raw. By the time our correct food came the others at our table were done. The waitress didn't seem to care much. I suggested Bobby's for that night. Very disappointed. I actually had reservation for Saturday and canceled them.

The best thing about Bobby's is consistency and choice. The food is always prepared with care, appropriately seasoned and served hot. No matter how many times we come for dinner, it's always difficult to choose a favorite from the menu and the usual response at dinner is, we'll just have to come back again to have another one of our favorites. Then you server is Jennifer S and she enhances your overall dining experience.

Bobby's Deerfield is a local favorite, perhaps the best in town in our estimation. We were there on Labor Day evening and with a later reservation, so the atmosphere was very quiet and conversation-friendly, and they have been awarded Wine Spectator awards for at least the past three consecutive years. My wife selected scallop spaghetti, which she pronounced excellent, and I very much enjoyed the Bobby's jambalaya, the first time I had tried that. Our shared appetizer was very good as well. Staff was attentive, helpful and pleasant.

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.

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!
