On our first night, a Sunday, while visiting NY we happened upon Bobby Van’s on 50th St. while searching for a restaurant for dinner. We were lucky to get a window seat even though we didn’t have reservations which. The atmosphere is classic NY with a lot of brass and mahogany and with the wait staff wearing white jackets like...

We went to Bobby Van's after a lovely night viewing the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree; we were craving hamburgers and a festive night at an iconic NY eatery. While the burgers were delicious, for the money this place is not worth the price. We were seated at a table that had not been cleaned and had no silverware. We had... More

What a good dinner. My husband had the Petite Filet for $46 (it melted in your mouth - and was cooked perfect). I had Frutti DiMare for $39 - pasta dish with crab, shrimp and scallops. It was delicious. I was a little disappointed that the tails were left on the shrimp (which is done almost everywhere so I am... More

Had a nice dinner here mid week. Not to over priced considering it was New York City. Staff was friendly and service was excellent.

I had the Gorgonzola steak. It was awesome. We had a mixture of spicy calamari and regular. Both were good. Probably prefer the spicy. Also the bacon appetizer was very good. A great way to have bacon. I nice thick slab. Service was good.

While the food was good, we found the staff dull and not very friendly, they were robotic in their service. They only came alive when we decided to leave them 5& short on the SUGESTED 18% tip rate. The meal for three was just under 300$ so cant understand why they were so hostile and aggressive??? as the bill suggested... More

A favorite when in the City for a show(s). The presentation, menu, and wine list are all excellent. Being in the theatre district, the service is also great even when there for dinner before a show when it's usually busy. Highly recommended.

We were with a small group, had reservations at Bobby Van's, we walked there from our hotel on 45th, which was a nice walk other than the fact there was a constant pouring rain! We were pleasantly greeted as we walked through the door. Our table was all set up, and the staff was very attentive. We enjoyed delicious wine... 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.
