I hired a private room for a business meeting with around 15 people. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. Order the steak - it melts in the mouth.

The food is very good and the service is excellent. My husband had the rib eye, it was the biggest steak I've ever seen! I had the seafood pasta and it was fantastic.

We started with the Oysters Rockfeller with half of a lobster cold, simply amazing followed with the signature Bobby Van's porterhouse. A perfect dinner for two, with a fantastic service by the only women at the restaurant.....we have been customers for 20 years, and still having an amazing dinner every time.

Had dinner here before going to the theatre. Lovely restaurant, great atmosphere, charming wait staff, but the food was awful. I am not a negative person. Had a drink and a chicken dish. The chicken was a flat piece of chicken (not even a chicken breast), and I couldn't eat it. My bill was $80.00+, just for atmosphere. A fast... More

I brought a group of 12 here for lunch. Everything from the drinks to salads to entrees was amazing. Service- impeccable. Of course it was expensive but for a professional gathering this was a perfect setting and very enjoyable.

Diversity of food is what I was looking for and they have it. Beware, portions are on the large side....my petite filet was enough for two people, but perfect. Overall an excellent meal. I'd definitely go back again.

First time at Bobby Van's, very nicely presented restaurant. We had a private room, the room was a little loud with everyone talking. The Service was outstanding. The food was great. Be warned the steaks are massive! A little on the pricey side, but this is a high end restaurant in NYC. I would definitely go back (if someone else... More

When I order a steak, I usually expect something in the range of 12oz even though they advertise 16oz at most restaurants. Here at Bobby Van's I ordered the rib eye medium rare and they brought out a steak the size of my shoe (and I have big feet). It was about 1 1/2 thick and weighed about 2+lbs. It... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
