Very nice steak, I ordered the Eye Fillet and is was cooked to my liking and the steak was very tender. I couldn't believe the size of some steaks that were passing us on the way to other tables - huge. Decore was pleasant.

Nice interior, buzzy atmosphere. Wine was expensive but the food was very good especially the steak as you would expect. Beware size of starters (or appetizers as our American friends call them) - they are huge. My fiance ordered calamari & the portion size was gigantic - it was either a giant squid from deep in the atlantic or a... More

Our hotel kindly booked us a table for Christmas Day, this was our big honeymoon fancy meal out, we were excited. The food is fantastic, could not fault it, unusual and delicious with fair portions. Our waiter was rude, short mannered and blunt. He seemed to take an instant dislike to us and ignored several of our requests, we ended... More

I have no complaints about Bobby Van's - it delivered everything our family of 4 needed for dinner on Christmas Day - it was open, we were seated promptly upon arrival; hot food was hot; cold food was cold; everything was as ordered and expected. There is just nothing "wow" about the place - décor, food, service and when your... More

After attending the Rockettes show on Christmas Eve, we had a reservation at Bobby Vans for dinner which is conveniently located close to Radio City music hall. We were all very happy and arrived a little early which appeared to be a good thing. THe hostess seemed inpatient when we stopped to check our coats and from here the service... More

Nice place, good food and good meat. A little pricy but not exagerated. Good service as well and good desserts.

We were able to book a 6PM table at BV's on 50th at noon of the same day. Then, even though we got turned around on the subway and overshot the reservation by 16min, they still sat us promptly. All the staff were very nice and helpful. The waiter quickly corrected a mistake with the order. The soups, steak and... More
