Hello Happy Couples!!Sent on 09/09/2020
Our wedding was originally scheduled for May, 2020...
An NYC COVID couple giving a FIVE STAR review for a vendor basically says it all... but in case you're skeptical, or perhaps reading this in 2022 and COVID is a thing of the past...
We couldn't be more impressed by the team at Robert.
We were so excited to have our May 2020 rehearsal dinner at Robert - it is PERFECTLY located relative to the hotels on Central Park South, AND it has the most GORGEOUS views of NYC to set the stage for a New York wedding weekend!!
Emma was INCREDIBLE from day ONE!
Once my fiance and I had all but inked the contract, we thought it would be prudent to bring our parents to Robert for lunch one afternoon ...
Emma went above and beyond and made that lunch SO special for our families. The afternoon was FANTASTIC - Emma's team treated us to the most incredible afternoon. Our parents were sold on Robert within 15 minutes of their arrival.
When COVID forced us to postpone our wedding, Emma was BEYOND helpful. She immediately responded to our frantic emails inquiring about potential postponement dates with calm, intentional, thoughtful responses.
Not only was the team at Robert flexible in accommodating a date change, Emma went above and beyond in proactively providing suggestions (and troubleshooting scenarios) for outdoor alternatives within their restaurant group that were a bit more COVID friendly... We would have never had seamless of an experience if we hadn't been working with such a prestigious restaurant group in NYC.
If you're still reading this and still not convinced......
In the depths of quarantine, on our original wedding date, we were so overwhelmed to receive a delivery from Emma and the whole team at Robert. The delivery was a (huge!!!!!) care package filled with sweet treats to commemorate our original wedding date. The whole Robert team really made us feel like we weren't just another Friday night event that got cancelled in 2020, we were a part of their company's world.
If they could make us feel so special in May 2020, we can't wait to see what they will do in May 2021!!!
We cannot endorse the team at Robert more.

Views! Views! Views!
Last year, we were looking for the quintessential NYC venue to celebrate our recent wedding. Our friends and family were planning to come from out of town (and from around the world!) and we wanted to pick a spot that would "wow" them. My husband and I have been NYC residents forever and love the Upper West and Central Park. Robert at the Museum of Arts and Design was the perfect location for us due to its proximity to both. Robert is modern, elegant and edgy. The panoramic views overlooking Columbus Circle and Central Park from the restaurant are breathtaking. The lighting and seating arrangement was spectacular. The dinner guests loved the fact that the museum was within the same facility!Sent on 10/02/2020
We worked with the venue Manager "Kristi" very closely. She is extremely organized and put us at ease with her exceptional customer service and attention to detail. No details were overlooked and Kristi inspired a lot of confidence early on so that we could relax and she delivered what she promised. The menu options were varied; there was something to appeal to everyone...the food and its presentation was a feast for the eyes and the palate. We sat down with Kristi and the restaurant Manager and picked out the menu (without any pressure). The combination of choices of entrees and array of desserts left our dinner guests talking about the spread for months! The venue staff was very polished, professional and welcoming. The piano made available at the venue allowed me to bring in a live musician to entertain our guests while they dined and looked out at the incredible views.
Every bride wants a unique experience so that she can always reflect back on her special day. I can truly say that I was delighted by the place that provided me and my guests a chance to celebrate in a warm ambiance with a flare and sophistication that I dreamed of. Robert was the perfect place to create the memory of this special day that I will cherish for years.
I highly recommend the venue and the staff!
Thank you Kristi and all the staff at Robert for making it so memorable!

Perfect NYC restaurant wedding
We loved our experience with Robert. We wanted a more informal ceremony/reception and loved the idea of a restaurant wedding. Thanks to Kristi and Richard, we were able to have our perfect wedding and give our (mostly out of town) guests a unique, Manhattan experience. The best thing about working with Robert is since it’s a restaurant, they take care of all the nuances that normal venues might not. From the food to the atmosphere to the Central Park views, our wedding was truly our best day ever and our guests were so impressed.Sent on 05/09/2019
