Hands down, having our wedding at Robert was THE. BEST. CHOICE.
Hands down, having our wedding at Robert was THE. BEST. CHOICE. Ana Harris and her team at Robert are EXPERTS in hospitality and event planning, and with their help my husband and I had the most beautiful and elegant wedding we could have ever imagined, and ultimately the best party we have ever been to…and we hosted it!
Let’s start with the venue: Robert Restaurant is a hidden treasure inside the Museum of Arts and Design, and has the most spectacular view of Columbus Circle and Central Park. Our guests, most of whom live and have dined throughout Manhattan, were surprised they had never heard of Robert, and as the elevator doors opened to the restaurant, our guests were completely blown away by the restaurant’s elegant and modern décor, impressive floor to ceiling windows, and its breathtaking view.
Our Food & Beverage: During cocktail hour there was a varied selection of passed Hors D’oeuvres, prosecco and sparkling water as well as open bar. We chose not to have a formal sit down dinner, and instead we opted for cuisine stations. Robert has such a wide range of delicious selections to choose from, it was difficult to decide. Ultimately we decided on 4 stations: Station 1. Carving Station: Filet Mignon with Garlic Mash Potatoes, and Glazed Baby Carrots. Station 2. Italian Station: Traditional pasta with Pomodoro Sauce & Basil, Grilled Seasonal Vegetables, Fresh Arugula, Strawberries, and Shaved Fennel Salad with Crispy Prosciutto on the side (for our Raw Vegan Guests), Assortment of Rustic Breads and Herbed Olive Oil. Station 3. Latin Station: that included a Red Snapper Ceviche, Marinated Steak & Pescado Taqueria, Chipotle Chicken Quesadilla, Guacamole, Salsa and Chips, and Grilled Mexican Corn, and 4. Asian Station: Chicken Teriyaki, 3 types of Maki Rolls, Tuna and Salmon Tataki, Sesame Bok Choy and Vegetable Lo Mein. For Dessert: A selection of Petite Desserts, and wedding cake! I have never heard of another restaurant or venue that offered such an eclectic range of cuisines. And these are just a few examples that Robert has to offer!
Adding to delicious foods and gorgeous venue, what makes Robert truly EXCEPTIONAL, is the care and thought Ana Harris and her team put into making sure we had the best day of our life.
For example, we didn’t have a DJ in mind, and, after getting to know our style and taste in music, they considered the many DJ companies they’ve worked with, and recommended Pristine Productions. They were EXCELLENT. Pristine Productions worked with us by asking what genre of music or songs we liked or didn’t like. They also offered an inspiring list of songs to walk down the aisle to when we didn’t have one in mind. And after the ceremony, the DJ was able to read the room, played fantastic music, and brought everyone to the dance floor. And everyone DANCED! We also had no idea what type of “Alter” we wanted, but Ana offered some incredible suggestions, and directed us to some of the best places in the Flower District for creative and inspiring ideas. We also had no idea what cake we wanted – but by asking a few simple questions (what color was my dress, how many tiers, and what flavor we wanted) we put our complete trust in their Pastry Chef Benito, and on the day we received the most elegant, beautifully decorated, and delicious cake. In fact, most of our guests went back for seconds and thirds! And these are just a few examples of how thorough, thoughtful, personal, and collaborative Ana and her team at Robert were to insure we had the best wedding event to remember. Whatever ideas or concerns we had, they listened and were receptive, and ultimately, they gave us even BETTER ideas.
We could not imagine a more positive experience in a wedding planning experience.
And since our wedding event, all of our guests have said that ours was THE BEST WEDDING they have ever been to. Everyone loved the food. Everyone loved the venue. Everyone danced the night away.
Thank you, Ana Harris and the entire team at Robert for an event to remember for all time.

We sincerely think we had the best wedding ever thanks to Robert. The venue is sophisticated with the most glamorous views we can imagine. The cocktail hour was delicious -- plenty of passed hor d'oeuvres and waiters serving wine (in addition to the non-stop open bar), with guests' jaws dropping when the elevator doors opened and they entered Robert and saw those views. We then had an open structure -- substantial food and carving stations instead of a sit-down meal -- and not only was the food delicious and beyond plentiful, but this structure allowed for a fun, lively night encouraging all of our 140 guests to mingle, which they certainly did. The sound system was perfect, we were thrilled to be able to use the grand piano for the cocktail hour and live singing by one of the grooms (!), and Robert even allowed use of the TV video display, normally reserved for electronic art, for our own use for photos and clips. Arthur was wonderful in working with us in advance and making sure every detail was in place and perfect, the staff accommodated our dropping by the restaurant numerous times before the event (to check out the floor plan, etc..,.) and on the actual night, the staff could not have been more welcoming, helpful and lovely -- one of my treasured memories was Chef Luisa lovingly bringing our hungry 6 year old niece a plate of simple pasta right before the wedding started -- personal touches like that in the middle of a huge event abounded. Our guests have been telling us non-stop that our wedding was the most fun they have been too, and we have to agree -- thanks to Robert and the entire team there, we had the best night of our lives and we think our guests had one of the more magical nights of theirs. We could not have made a better choice than Robert, and the wonderful team there (Arthur, Richard, Chef Luisa, Pastry Chef Benito and the rest). Thank you Robert!
