Good Staff, Very Good Ambiance, Wonderful Food

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... read 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

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.

Food and service was amazing ! A great experience inside the original JPMORGAN Bank vault from 1902. The outside walls are still lined with original safety deposit boxes.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge for a nice family meal before Easter Vigil. Be advised Wall Street is blocked off in several areas which means that a few blocks of walking is in order. For us the heels were not comfortable walking in. Make sure you tell your cabbie which location because there are a few. One... More

Bought a groupon voucher for Bobby Van's. Heard good things about it but saw there were reviews talking about unfriendly staff etc. i would not say that staff were unfriendly but would say that it does lack atmosphere and the staff are polite but really do lack charm and personality. Who says that upscale needs to have stiff waiters. This... More

I met some friends here during restaurant week in early March. When you can order an appetizer, a filet mignon, and end with an amazing dessert… all for under $40 in NYC, that’s a great deal. Service was a bit slow and the price for cocktails was high, even for NYC standards, but the food was all very tasty. I... More

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
