Dinner. Seated in our own little alcove. Bob was our waiter. He was attentive and fantastic. The filet cut like butter. The wedge salad - out of this world. And the cheesecake was top notch! Can't wait to go back!!!

We had a rib steak, a first for us and it was amazing. So perfect the knife just fell through it. Great salad, fires and creamed spinach. We had half portions and shared, which was great. For dessert cheesecake, which was equally superb. Our Merlot was just perfect and at $60 was good value for a great wine. The waiter... More

The food was awesome and the location was in walking distance from our hotel. Unfortunately it's a little pricey but the food was very worth it!

I had a business dinner at Vans's steakhouse at 50th street. In our group some chose filet mignon, some a burger (We just had dinner in the plane) The Meal quality is fine. Steaks were (un-american) rare as ordered and with terrific meat quality. But that is what you may expect as they charge a stiff 55 dollar for a... More

Excellent service and food superb. We had the porterhouse for 2. Pittsburg style. It came out perfect. Flavor was wonderful. Waiter was friendly and at the same time professional. We are anxious to dine at this facility in the near future.

We dined here at the recommendation of our hotel concierge. Honestly, we did better just picking a place off the street the night before. The service was really not good. We waited at least an extra half hour just to get our check, with waiters wAlking by our table and not even looking at us, much less asking if we... More

We got a tip from the concierge at our hotel about Bobby Van. We appreciated the italian style and had good pasta. Tried the spaghetti frutti de mare. A lot of food. Good, but a little way to go to beat the best Italien ones.

Starting with the positives, the location is convenient and the service was great, very attentive. Our meal was nothing like we expected. My husbands steak looked impressive but it tasted just okay. He's had much better at many other restaurants. My ravioli was very bland and tasted like something I could get at any casual restaurant. There are just too... More

Wonderful service, Fantastic food. We had scallops for appetizers, largest I have ever had. Two people in our party had filet, one had salmon and we all thought it was excellent.

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.
