Seasoned professional staff, quality food, Manhattan - what's not to like? This is a great place to dine before any Broadway show. Excellent food and service. They took care of our entire family as true professionals.

We visited Bobby Van's after a matinee of Finding Neverland. We just happened upon the restaurant, and we are so glad we did! I with my 11-yr-old daughter, and we needed a place that was clean (can be hard to find in Theatre district) with good food and kid friendly. At first glance, it did not appear the restaurant was...

Bobby Van's is a wonderful place for dinner before the theatre. The food was great and the service superb. We enjoyed the "Restaurant Week" special menu - delicious choices at a reasonable price.

While this place is pricey it is worth every penny. We have eaten in some very nice steak places and I have to say this is at the top of our list. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. The steaks were cooked perfectly. You won't go wrong eating here if you are looking for a good steak... More

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.

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.
