This is a quiet place tucked away above a museum at Columbus Circle. The view of Central Park is lovely. The ambience , the food and the staff are wonderful. One of my go to places for a "girls lunch".

Like almost all roof top venues except for Bar 65 views are fantastic.....food not so much. Missing a little flavor here and place seemed a little dated. The menu was chipped and tables set up just in front of elevators not cool. Service was GREAT

The restaurant is located above Columbus Circle with great views towards Central Park and up Broadway. But you must have a table by the window to see and appreciate these great views - which we were lucky enough to have! Robert is a modern restaurant serving traditional food but sometimes with unusual combinations - goat's cheese and papaya for example.... More

Our last evening in NYC and dinner at Robert was the perfect choice. Excellent cuisine and wines with superb service. Then there was the view...breathtaking. We also ate at The View but would recommend Robert - refined, refreshing and not a rip-off!

Chose Robert for my birthday lunch. Asked for a window view when we reserved and wish was granted - however we were seated in the "nook" table which leaves you starting into a mirror two feet from your face. Host told me I "would get use to it" or he could move me back to the lounge area. A little... More

When my fiancée and I stepped off of the elevator we were immediately impressed with the restaurant's tasteful decor and the awesome views of Central Park, Broadway, and Columbus Circle. Our server Sabrina and the rest of the staff were pleasant and accommodating. The food presentation was appealing, the portions satisfying, and the taste delicious. Other than the small size...

Beautiful setting with remarkable view of Central Park. Great Sunday Brunch live jazz music. Excellent service. We order several delicious appetizers and entrees. Egg Benedict was overly cooked. But the other dishes were excellent.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
