I was disappointed with the table. I had requested a window days before the dinner, and was told ok. The MD was keen to make arrogant comments about how full they are 30 days prior to dinners. This is UNTRUE! Recently I dined there in the eve with just a few days notice and sat by the window. Moreover, the restaurant is FAR from being fully booked, and there were window tables still available by the time we ended our dinner. To top it all, this unprofessional MD suddenly changed our table, after he had led us to it, substituting for a table overlooking into the apartments! I had to refuse that unintelligent choice.
Will think twice before returning. There are lots of restaurants in NYC.

This restaurant serves outstanding food in a relaxing atmosphere. The decor is stunning, and if you can, reserve a window table that looks out at Columbus Circle.

Luncheon was lovely. However, there was a woman seated next to us talking loudly on her phone. Management should not permit this. It was obnoxious and unpleasant. Fortunately, it only lasted 15 minutes. However, that was 15 minutes too long!

We celebrated our daughters 13th birthday with two of her friends. When we walked out of the elevator the floor to ceiling windows with views of Columbus Circle and Central Park were amazing. We were seated at a window table, my daughter and friends enjoyed photographing the view. Jose our server was attentive and helpful throughout the evening. From the appetizers to dessert everything ordered was visually artistic and tastefully prepared. My husband still raves about the crab cake appetizer! We will be back to enjoy other celebrations, for the beautiful views and delicious cuisine. Thank you for a lovely and memorable evening.

Go for the setting - imaginatively designed and decorated modern ambiance with floor-to-ceiling glass overlooking Central Park and Columbus Circle. The food is very good, but not what makes this a destination. The service was prompt, polite, and available.

My 17 year old daughter and I were in New York last week for a college tour trip. We ate at Robert on our last night and it was FANTASTIC. The only thing that could have made it better is if we would’ve been able to get a window seat. But we made a reservation that afternoon and it was still beautiful. Next visit I will book a window seat early! The food was incredible, the presentation spectacular and we loved everything we ordered. It had the perfect decor for my 17-year-old daughter as well. Perfect dinner!

We had been to Robert before for a special occasion years ago and had fond memories of our experience, so we visited again for a family Easter lunch. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent, the view of Columbus Circle and Central Park remains stunning, and the service was efficient and professional. The restaurant has put in place COVID safety measures while maintaining a sense of charm and design. Definitely recommend!

Our fish, halibut and Branzini, was done to perfection. We had a goat cheese mousse for dessert. It made us feel innocent. We debated the angle formed by the intersection of Broadway and Central Park West. We concluded that it was 33 degrees. The restaurant is 100 percent!

Staff didn't acknowledge my fiance's birthday, although I noted it weeks ago, called prior and double checked. Also, the limited options for vegetarians are unreal. Like, there is absolutely no effort put into the one or two choices.

I love Robert! Even on a rainy day, the view is thrilling! The staff is attentive, and the food was excellent! (Wild mushroom omelet). I took a friend who had never been there. She was so excited to go and also enjoyed the experience.

They wouldn't let me not choose stars for food, but we didn't eat there. We only stopped in briefly for cocktails. However, the room is beautiful, and the people are very kind and friendly. The views are spectacular from the huge windows. I would not hesitate to go back for dinner.

We had a great meal at Robert -- our first fancy dinner in more than a year! The food was excellent, service was great. My only complaint would be that later in the evening the lights were dimmed and the video screens with swirling graphics were very bright, which was quite exhausting. Our dinner companions basically became backlit. Also the lights in the bathrooms were too dim.
