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.

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!!!

I loved the seafood. Simply delicious.
The calamari could use more seasoning otherwise good.

Bobby's was once again a solid option for our small group dinner. the food is always good, the menu is broad with choices for everyone, the service is very good and the vibe is nice. We had the grilled octopus which was excellent, the Chicken Vesuvio was very good, and everyone in the party enjoyed their selection.

Very disappointed, food is decent but we sat in a room in the back and were told it was going to be quiet , but it was impossible to have a discussion without yelling, the room was very very loud and we left with a headache when we made the comment to the manager, his response was obnoxious and didn’t even apologize, I don’t think we will go back there any time soon.

It was very very noisy and difficult to hear and converse. By 6 o'clock it was overly noisy. Very badly needs sound dampening . Our waitress kept using the word, 'we' multiple times as in "What do 'we' want to order tonight?", "Are 'we' ready for dessert?', etc. rather condescending and annoying to say the least. The only time I have been talked to like this was once in the hospital a nurse used it, i.e., "It's time for us to have our shot not."

My wife and I love it there! The service is outstanding. Be sure to try the Shrimp Bobby appetizer and the double cut grilled pork chop. Even the hamburger is very good and very large. Tera miso is a great desert as well! We go there regularly.
