I visited Bobby Van's Steakhouse on a business trip and will plan to return soon. My colleague and I both had the sesame tuna and it was outstanding. Our server was excellent, the entire staff provided great service and hospitality. See you soon!

This place exceeded my expectations! We had great service, amazing food and the atmosphere was the best. The meals were all prepared well and our server was attentive. This is a NYC must-do!

We have always eaten at Bobby Van's when in NYC. The waiters were not as "on spot" this time. Food was good, just not the same polished professional staff. Was probably just an off night.

Met friends here for a pre-theater dinner. Restaurant is very convenient to theaters. It's one of the few very good, mid-priced restaurant in the area.
