Bobby’s Deerfield is based loosely on our other location Café Lucci which we have developed since 1995. Similar to Café Lucci, Bobby’s Deerfield will serve as a true neighborhood locale, marked by our signature personal service and unmatched friendly atmosphere. However, Bobby’s Deerfield will be a more casual eatery, completely accessible in every way. Reminiscent of the iconic, nostalgic neighborhood restaurant of yesteryear, Bobby’s Deerfield will bring graciousness back to dining out, in a simple way, by turning out the best product and best service.

First time there. I think part of culprit was I had higher expectations. I had duck ragu which was bland.

We have gone here several times. This meal in total was particularly average and not up to our past experiences at this restaurant. The hostess that took us to our table was obviously sick. She was coughing the entire trip to our table. As we left she was, yes, still coughing. The server was at best distracted and non attentive. He showed up at our table complaining about how many questions the previous table asked him. Apparently that was his excuse for not getting to our table sooner. He was a disappointing server who always seemed to be in a hurry in order to get to his next table. Funny thing is that the restaurant didn't seem that busy and that someone else brought out our order. From start to finish it was a disappointing experience.

Food was good had Vesuvio chicken and seviche. Bread served was stale. Didn’t taste fresh. Hard butter pads served because we didn’t want garlic spread. Decaf coffee was not good. Asked too many times if I wanted more wine after one glass.

Very impressed by the quality of the food. Great flavors. Priced right for what you get. Only problem is the noise level. Hard to hear people at your same table. But I still plan on going back. Food is better than most places in the area.

The happy hour menu was priced right but the quality of food was less than desirable. Oysters were not fresh and crab cake was over-salted.

We love Bobby’s we love their food, their outside dining and the servers are terrific.
The girls at the front desk are not terrific, they don’t know what they r doing.
I made an OT reservation for 4 people. They thought we were a party of two. We wanted a booth, the first one they gave us the light overhead was out. We wanted the larger booth they told us it was for later parties. They ended seating a party of four in the booth. 🙁

I love Bobby’s. Go to place for lunch or dinner. Takes reservations, food good, changing menu, comfy large booths, tables far apart, and always friendly, accommodating, and professional service. Try the calamari appetizer, the steak tartare, the burger. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.

Loved our first visit. Service was great and the burgers were delish with the very crisp fries. One of us had the salmon tacos which was really fresh and tasty. We loved the garlic that was served with the bread. The tiramisu was light and very delicious. We will definitely go back!

My wife and I had reservations for 7:15 pm on a Friday night. We arrived on time and were seated promptly. We started with a charcuterie plate which at $17 was a bargain. My wife had a cocktail which she loved. We split a chopped salad, each had a main dish, a bottle of wine, and two small desserts, xorbet and gelato. The wine was brought by a sommelier and poured into a carafe; nice touch. Our main courses were excellent, two pasta dishes which we took home for another meal. My wife's sorbet, coconut, was served in a coconut shell; again nice touch. Although the place was crowded, with people waiting, we never felt rushed. The wine was a nice venetian red priced at $55. Overall a wonderful dinner. The only miss was leaving the charcuterie plate on the table after it was finished and bringing the split salad. The empty plate remained while we finished our salad.

Went for V-day with my girlfriend. Food was amazing, from the filet tartare to the 20oz bone-in ribeye which was one of the best I’ve ever had in my life... browned butter, garlic cloves and crispy leeks on top. AMAZING! Thank you Bobby’s!!

Second Valentine's Day meal ... The window seatings for 2 are cold and drafty ... Our repeat waiter was attentive, but unconcerned ... The entrees had all the ingredients, but were uninspired. If you're gonna cook these great ingredients, pay attention !!! Lobster overcooked ... Scallops with no flavor !!! And pasta that never saw a salt shaker. If I had these to cook in my house, it would have been much better !!! I'm going back to Cafe Lucci next time, and if they treat me like this I'll yell !!!
