Great location for after theatre dinner but that's about as far as it goes for this establishment. We had booked expecting this place to be bursting at the seams on a Wednesday evening after the theatre but there was no need as it was half empty. The greeting was unusually sombre for an NY eatery and we were shown to... More

On a recent business trip to NYC we had lunch at Bobby Van's. We thoroughly enjoyed the "Seafood Tower" that included cocktail shrimp, lump crab meat, and a lobster split in two - all served in an iced platter high atop a wire riser. Everything was cold, fresh and delicious. They brought us a basket-full of fresh bread and rolls... More

We discovered Bobby Vans by chance after a hard days shopping. We were greeted immediately on arrival and shown to a table. The menu was extensive and offered a wide variety of tastes and textures. The waiter took his time to talk through the specials board and showed a genuine interest in our impression of New York. I ordered the... More

It is not fancy but the food is excellent. The steak was great, both in size and taste. Service is attentive and professional. Skip the desert. You won't be able to finish it anyhow.

tasted their food during restaurant week and I must say the food was excellent, great portion and fresh. Atmosphere was great. Service was ok, when it gets busy, it takes the waiter/waitress 10 minutes to get back to us.

Good ambience but food just not that great. We've had better steaks in small towns we've visited. Just too expensive for quality of food.

After checking into our hotel in Midtown, we asked the concierge for a restaurant within walking distance, no dress code and that was reasonably priced. She sent us to Bobby Van's Steakhouse. Yes, it was an easy walk and yes, their was no dress code. However, our idea of reasonably priced and hers was vastly different. We split an appetizer... More

I recently visited this steak house with my husband and was very impressed with my delicious Filet Mignon dinner. Cooked to order -and sides of potatoes and vegetable were quite good. Friendly atmosphere and we were not rushed at all. Would highly recommend!!

Really have got to enjoy the Bobby Van's Steakhouse chain! This was our first time eating at a Bobby Van's in NYC and enjoyed a table of 4 in celebration of a family member's 50th birthday. We took our own champagne and were happy to pay the small corkage fee. The steaks were, as expected, absolutely excellent! The service was... More
