Just passing this restaurant on 120 West 45th Street in New York. Looked good from the outside and started to get really busy. Nice table on the Mezzanine and a very attentive Irish waitress (Rachael). Partner really enjoyed the Lobster sandwich while I had a beer and a Steak sandwich. Apprently they also have other restaurants in NY & Washington... More

My wife had tickets to a concert and decided to have dinner before. We booked a 5:30 reservation and could have made it comfortably if had made a 6:00 reservation (this was a Monday night). They served a nice basket of bread to start. I had the warm spinach salad and it had plenty of mushrooms and bacon - when... More

My second time ever at a Bobby Van's and it was a great meal. Not a cheap one, but a great one. Had the veal parmigiana and would go again tonight if i were still in the city.

We've been there for dinner. We found the food OK but nothing special and definitely overly expensive. Definitely not kid friendly. Right after having paid more than 50$ only in tip, our (very quite and well behaved) child felt on the floor while trying to reach his mother. Instead of helping him, a waiter approached us and very rudely repeated... More

This was the place we tried on our last night in New York at the suggestion of the hotel staff. Great choice! The food was amazing. My wife and I both had scallops wrapped in bacon dressed on top of a tastey slaw. It's the first time we enjoyed bacon wrapped scallops in a restaurant more than when we make... More

Ate here before going to the theater. I had pasta; my husband had steak. The steak comes with no sides. Te side dishes are listed in the menu as "for 2" so they are huge. Wait staff was great. We sat by the window...great to people watch.

I entertained a party of 30 business people at Bobby Vans on 50th. We did a prix fixe meal with choice of appetizer and main dish and an assortment of desserts. Of the 3 entrees I chose, the steak was by far the best choice. Large and delicious. Service was outstanding. They poured wines for us and helped with some... More

This establishment came highly recommended by our hotel front desk staff. We arrived at the start of dinner service so it wasn't busy at all. My husband and I each ordered hot tea that was lukewarm (water out of my kitchen faucet is hotter, no kidding). We both ordered steak, mine well done and my husband's medium. My steak was... More
