I prefer the BVan Steakhouses to all of the rest. I lived in Manhatten for many years and found them to be in the top of my rating. On my return trips, they are first on my steakhouse list.

I went here for dinner after a Broadway show on Valentine's day with 2 other couples. The atmosphere and service was excellent. We got the steak for 3 and it was more then enough for 4 people. It's a little pricey but hey it's New York and you get what you pay for. I would def be back and highly... More

This is a old style NY steakhouse with plentiful portions and efficient service. It was a busy and vibrant place with a business-like atmosphere and good wine. I even swapped a glass with the gentleman sitting opposite me! A good solid restaurant with a taste of NY. Worth a visit.

Enthusiastic and knowledgable wait staff made our dinner wih eight persons, on an expense account, into a memorable event. We were readily talked into the seafood "tower" with a dozen oysters accompanying huge shrimp, whole cooked and cold lobster, big chunks of crab. Three people split a multi person Porterhouse steak which was seared and yet bright pink inside. Pork... More

We had dinner on my name day 26 December. Service was good environment good prices on the expensive side and I don't understand why. We had better steak at Del Frisco's Rockefeller Center and prices were 15% better

After several bad meals in a row we decided to go to Bobby Van's. I have eaten there before and had a wonderful meal. They did not disappoint us. The food and the service was excellent. It is a great place to go for a special meal. We will be back.

I took my son to Bobby Vans Saturday to cap off our 2-day weekend in NYC before Christmas. One of the mangers (reddish coat) greeted us warmly and led us to our table. Our waiter was a jovial and agreeable chap, which added to the overall experience. My old fashion was one of the best that I have had in... More

I enjoyed our dinner here. Our party of 6 was given a great corner table. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. The steak was great and everyone else enjoyed their entrees. The restaurant was crowded, but it still felt intimate and the noise level was great for being able to hear and enjoy our party. Would definitely recommend.

Even if we can only fit in a visit at lunchtime, Bobby Van's is a must stop when in NYC. Generous portions go with generous prices, but nobody leaves unsatisfied. Best steak sandwich anywhere.

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.
