This place had some amazing steak. I got the bobby van steak with crab on top. It was to die for. We went earlier in the evening since we had a show to go to and it was relatively empty when we first arrived so my family and I got to enjoy each other company while dining on good food.

During a week of eating out in New York this was the best place we visited. Not cheap, but they served the best steak I have ever had. Well done.

We took a group of about 12 coworkers and clients here in December for a lunch before a matinee. Excellent food, service, and location, it was everything you hope for in a top quality steakhouse! The server took good care of our group, and handled special requests well, including gluten free orders, with no trouble. We went before a matinee,... More

Dinner. Seated in our own little alcove. Bob was our waiter. He was attentive and fantastic. The filet cut like butter. The wedge salad - out of this world. And the cheesecake was top notch! Can't wait to go back!!!

We had a rib steak, a first for us and it was amazing. So perfect the knife just fell through it. Great salad, fires and creamed spinach. We had half portions and shared, which was great. For dessert cheesecake, which was equally superb. Our Merlot was just perfect and at $60 was good value for a great wine. The waiter... More

The food was awesome and the location was in walking distance from our hotel. Unfortunately it's a little pricey but the food was very worth it!

I had a business dinner at Vans's steakhouse at 50th street. In our group some chose filet mignon, some a burger (We just had dinner in the plane) The Meal quality is fine. Steaks were (un-american) rare as ordered and with terrific meat quality. But that is what you may expect as they charge a stiff 55 dollar for a... More

Excellent service and food superb. We had the porterhouse for 2. Pittsburg style. It came out perfect. Flavor was wonderful. Waiter was friendly and at the same time professional. We are anxious to dine at this facility in the near future.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
