This restaurant is a WOW! Very attentive service (our waiter asked us if we wanted black napkins so the white would not get on our slacks), beautiful energetic setting, incredible food. I had the chilean sea bass and it is the best I have ever had. Flaky and cooked to perfection. Someone else had the chateaubria for one and it... More

Being in NYC the week before Christmas can be challenging when looking for a good meal without reservations. Our first night we had no reservations and learned that almost everyone else did. After trying several places with wait lists of an hour or so, we walked into Bobby Vanns. They too were booked but said they had a large party... More

Excellent food and service. Every bit as good as Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. We highly recommend getting a steak and Mac-N-Cheese (Enough for 3 people).

We ate here on our way to Radio City Music Hall. We didn't have a reservation but they were able to accommodate us. The food was excellent and the wait staff most helpful.

WE sort of enjoyed our steak at Bobby Van's on 50th. We were recommended by the concierge at the Sheraton - but perhaps he was on commission! It was noisy and crowded, we were crammed in to a space, and our waiter was creepy and when he spoke he sort of spat! The steaks were good - not the best... More

We had a delightful dinner after a play recently. Since it was 10 pm, the restaurant was not at all crowded. Service was excellent. Crab cocktail appetizer was one of the best I've had anywhere. Steak was excellent. Great wine list. This was our first visit to the restaurant & will definitely dine there again on our next trip to... More

We were very please with our time in Bobby Vans, its a class above, the service impeccable and the food superb. The location along 50th st isnt anything special, but the interior is well presented our only complaint was having to listen to our america neighbours at the next table, one of which liked the sound of his own voice.

Went to Bobby Van's after the theater. Our group enjoyed themselves with well prepared margaritas and Dark & Story cocktails. The French onion soup was delightful followed by the Chilean Sea Bass. My friend had Pork Chops and enjoyed those. Service was excellent. A good time after the theater,
