A nice resaurant with a very nice staff, but

I was just at Bobby Van's Steakhouse at 25 Broad Street on Monday, June 22. I used my Groupon and they treated us like any other customer and did not hide us away in a corner. I was able to order the exact amount of my groupon! The decor is understated with medium lighting, old fashioned lights... read more

Service was so so and food was standard. Prices were very high. Try someplace else. This restaurant is definitely not worth the price.

First, if you're on a budget, turn around, if you want a higher end meal at high end prices, have a seat. A dirty martini is not a difficult drink, however mine was served 98% vodka and definitely not dirty. $20 drink that was not drinkable. Limited beer selection; my hubby loves a quality craft beer with his steak and... More

Another Wall Street staple and if you want to sit next to the financial movers and shakers this is one of the more iconic places to go. Bobby Van's offers a pre-fixe lunch menu of $25 which includes appetizer and entrees. If you are going to have the filet mignon, as I did, you will have to pay an extra... More

I booked a business lunch and specifically requested a table in the vault. Even though the restaurant was fairly empty, they sat me in the main room. The wait staff was very attentive overall. My whole party went with the lunch special and all ordered the filet. Started with a descent size ceased salad which was very fresh. The filet... More

The atmosphere was dark and we were sat in an even dark corner. We sat for 20 minutes before the server came to our table to say hello, waited another 10 minutes for her to take our order, then our drinks didn't come until our appetizers were served. Our dinner took almost 1/2 hour to come, although it was tasty.... More

When someone invites me for dinner, they get to pick the place. And I am always pleased when it is somewhere I have not been before. Bobby Van's is well-known, and I had heard good things. Three of us strolled in on a Saturday night without a reservation, and were quickly seated. The waitress came quickly to deal with water... More

I've been here a few times and decided to take my wife for our anniversary. She started with French Onion soup, plenty o cheese and more flavor then any other restaurant we've had it in. I started with the slab of bacon, cooked to perfection, tasted like an Easter han. On the waitress recommendation we had the porterhouse Oscar special... More

Classic steakhouse. Great steak grilled to perfection. Nice selection of sides and generous pours on cocktails. Expensive but worth it.
