“Good steak and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

The service here was great. The waiter was very knowledgable and made excellent recommendations for both food and wine. The food was good, prepared as ordered, and plentiful. I had a filet and while it was good, I had higher expectations for a downtown DC steakhouse. The sides for everyone at our table were quite good.

All in all, it was a good meal with great service.

“Great meal, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

We went here because our hotel recommended it to us and it was close. We received a warm greeting and were shown to a table. We had great service from the staff who were friendly and attentive.

The food was delicious - tender and delicious steak. Excellent dessert too.

This is an expensive restaurant but worth it.

“Fabulous ending to vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

We decided to conclude our vacation eating somewhere nice since our week revolved around deli's, cafes, etc. While looking at the menu prior to arrival I questioned if I wanted to spend over 100 dollars on a meal for two. And Im glad I did. We both ordered a NY strip that was enough for both of us. The dining staff was attentive a friendly. The didnt hover but seemed to appear at the proper timing. Bobby Vans will become a tradition when in DC

“Always a good time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

We had a large group dinner in a private dining room. Service was pretty darn good considering the large collection of "type A" personalities. Not cheap, but I never assumed it would be...it's a New York steakhouse after all.

“Amazing food and wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We headed to Bobby Van's for supper one evening and were pleasantly surprised by its standards. The food was delicious with lots of varied options. The staff were really attentive without imposing, which is perfect for us. It is a bit more expensive than some restaurants we went to, but definitely worth it!!!
