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.

Our waiter was awesome. He ( can’t recall his name - young with head shaved ) knew the menu and wine list cold. I saw him debone a fish at the table next door and expertly pour some complements cocktails. It’s great to have staff like this!

The evening started out poorly as our server seemed to be new or newer. Then Anna Maria the manager stopped by our table to inquire how the evening was going? Once we verbalized our concerns, she made sure that the evening turned into a 5 Star review. Our dinners were brilliantly tasty. The compensated dessert, called Banofee (pictured below) was delicious and appreciated. We will return.

Waited about 30 min before server took our order. We finally flagged him down and he said he didn't want to interrupt our discussion. Thought that was strange. I think they should provide a list of specials with prices. The waiter just told us what they were. I guess we could have asked but we never expected to pay $38 for halibut with 4 pieces of asparagus. They food however is very good.

Came for dinner because I had enjoyed a great lunch there: vegetarian/vegan soup and rainbow salad. It is a decidedly much better value for lunch than for dinner.

The food was very good but service was not on par. It appeared the restaurant may have been short on help. One of our diners asked for a straw 4 times (and to different people) and it never came until the end of the meal. One diner’s drink order was incorrect. Wait time btwn taking our order and bringing appetizers followed by dinner was very slow. Had to ask for the check several times. It just appeared the server was trying to manage too many tables.

The restaurant is in the center of town, with plenty of free parking, and has a wonderful and complete wine list (and is our only restaurant with a mention in Wine Spectator for an award of merit. There are always weekend specials, and a long list of very tasty and unusual appetizers. My wife and I enjoyed our grilled and marinated octopus appetizer and she had a delicious halibut while fully savored my jambalaya. This is perhaps the best establishment in our village. Service was also prompt and obliging throughout the meal.

Bobby’s food was delicious and the server was good. BUT the kitchen was so slow that it took over an hour for our entree. I also mentioned this to the manager; when the kitchen is understaffed TELL the customers to set expectations and then serve a small “Sorry for the inconvenience” amuse bouche.
Slow kitchens make servers look bad and infuriated customers take it out on server’s tips.

Great as always! Lots of good menu choices. One small suggestion - put the olive oil on the table ahead of time so we don't have to ask for it. I like the roasted garlic spread but it tends to be a little dry.

I think this was our first Friday night ever. We had a booth at the corner near the bathroom or the kitchen. 7PM reservation seated 10 minutes late but orders not taken until 740. We asked a manager to find our waiter.

During that time, they ran out of the brick chicken which was on of the items we wanted to order so I got the vesuvio chicken which was pretty bland. The vesuvio potatoes where good. Another person had the branzino that also was very bland. Harry's fettucine was very good.

The customers are like the Deerfield need to be seen. Talking in the aisle, yelling down the aisle and not caring about the other diners.

Disappointing meal
