Robert is a modern American restaurant housed within the Museum of Arts and Design with an amazing view of Columbus Circle and Central Park. Enjoy dinner and a bottle of fine wine from our collection in our beautifully designed dining room. Have a seat in our lounge next to our baby grand piano and sip one of our cocktails.

"We had a reservation, asked for a window table and arrived to be put in a dark row of tables at the back of the restaurant with no view. Let's face it -- nobody goes to Robert for the food. It's ordinary and expensive. You go for the view of Central Park. They could have at least told us there would be no window table, or been somewhat apologetic. They did neither of those things. The food was a yawn. We ended up sitting in the lounge, where one of us had a distant view of the view and the other looked at the elevator door. It was a complete disappointment. I don't think we will go back."

Since 1963, Victor’s Cafe, a family-run New York City landmark, continues to be a culinary voyage to Cuba offering an incomparable experience with its harmony of authentic cuisine, hospitality and stylish environment. Victor’s has the unique distinction of being both luxurious and casual, serene and high energy, family oriented and romantic, exotic yet familiar.<br /><br />The cuisine at Victor’s includes the most delicious, authentic dishes combined with the restaurant’s exclusive creations that represent the evolution of Cuban cuisine. Signature dishes include Victor’s famous black bean soup, shredded beef (“Ropa Vieja”), and roast suckling pig (“Lechon”). <br /><br />The restaurant itself is divided into three spacious dining rooms, accented with warm lighting, colorful Cuban art, tropical ceiling fans, and lofty sky-lit ceilings. The restaurant's Cuba Lounge is intimate and warm, featuring a tapas menu and a variety of traditional Cuban cocktails such as Mojitos and Sangria.

"We had wonderful appetizers -- the Cuban sliders and the stuffed plantains -- and fabulous Ropa Vieja. The atmosphere is lovely the food excellent and the service top notch. We always have a good meal at Victor's and this was no exception."

Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is the culmination of a partnership between Lettuce Entertain You and Joe's Stone Crab, the legendary seafood restaurant of Miami Beach. Joe's features an extensive selection of seafood, flown in fresh daily, to complement the world's finest Florida Stone Crab claws. Joe's features the signature 16 oz. Bone-In Filet Mignon and 22 oz. New York Strip Steak. Matched with Joe's signature side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of the famous key lime pie. Enjoy a generous cocktail in the grand bar or the tuxedo-clad service of the clubby dining room.

"We have eaten here twice in the last couple of weeks, and the food is outstanding. However, the restaurant is clearly in shakedown mode when it comes to the service. The waiter forgot a martini ordered at our table, the food was slow in coming with a long time between courses and when the check came, the four of us were charged for six desserts (though we had only ordered two). Finally, it took more than 20 minutes to get our car and the valet was surly, saying it had been only "two minutes" since we had given him the car ticket. It was insulting, really. However -- the food was uniformly fabulous: Great stone crabs, steak, hash browns, key lime pie. Will go back soon -- just hope the service gets better."

"We come here often, but have never been seated next to the kitchen entrance corridor before. Not a good place to be. The trout was good as usual, but something about the steaks was not up to their normal high standards. They were chewy and flavorless. The caesar salad likewise was a pile of lettuce with little flavor. It was a disappointing dinner."

"We enjoyed the brunch and the great sticky buns. The only odd thing is that the waiter refused to bring us a refill on buns until we ordered. "People get full on the buns, and then they don't want to order much. And that has financial implications," he explained. That was pretty odd and a bit annoying. Sorry if they don't make as much money because I eat an extra sticky bun. Still, the food was good, the view and atmosphere exception."

Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables.<br /><br />Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.<br />

"I've been to Benihana several times, but I've forgotten how much fun it is. We had a great time! Our chef was excellent and the food delicious. In addition it was a great show, very entertaining and lots of fun."

Don & Charlie’s menu reflects the kind of fine American dining that has never gone out of style. The most popular menu items remain USDA prime steaks; hickory – smoked BBQ baby back ribs and chicken; prime rib; and fresh fish. <br /><br />Don & Charlie’s features a comfortable atmosphere with warm wood paneling, banquettes, and crisply white – clothed tables. The star attraction is the veritable sports museum housed throughout the restaurant. It is thought to be the largest collection of sports memorabilia west of the Mississippi. It includes literally hundreds of autographed bats, balls, jerseys, and photos from athletes of past and present. It is not unusual to see celebrity players from every sport dining at the restaurant.<br /><br />Don & Charlie’s is a Scottsdale landmark with a national reputation, their food and ambiance have been lauded in Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Gourmet Magazine and dozens of other publications.

"Don't expect to talk while eating here. The noise level is ridiculous. However, when you're eating the ribs, there is no point in talking anyway. They are so good. Wish they didn't rush you so, try to clear dishes before everyone at the table is done. But it's great rib eating."

Guardado's serves up authentic, flavorful dishes from Spain and Latin America, in a casual and inviting atmosphere, in the heart of Bethesda, Maryland. We now offer Brunch on Sundays <br /><br />Chef Nicolas Guardado and his wife Reyna opened Guardado's Restaurant in 2007. Guardado brought with him a wealth of experience, rising through the ranks at local-area tapas restaurant Jaleo to a seasoned head chef. <br /><br />Now, he is infusing that knowledge into his own restaurant, as well as adding some popular Latin American entrees and some traditional dishes from his native Salvadorean background to Guardado's extensive menu. <br /><br />

"We have eaten here several times and enjoy it more and more each time. The food is excellent, and the service is very good. The Zarzuela Marisco (seafood stew) is fabulous as are the small plates, especially the spinach with oranges and raisins. Very good prices and great value."

"We had an early New Year's Eve dinner, and enjoyed it greatly. Waiters and staff in general were very accommodating. The food was great -- outstanding trout, perfect Steak Classique, and more. We are always happy to dine here."
