As with most steak houses in NY this one is loud with attentive but gruff staff.....I guess it adds to the charm? Our guys was nice and was there when we needed him. It was a group of 6 and everyone was pleased with the...More

I don't know what to say other than the food was fantastic. Went to dinner with my brother before a Rush concert and we sample a lot of dishes. Everything was great. Very pleased.

Concierge recommended the restaurant and made our reservation. I read some of the other reviews and it appears most people loved it so maybe our experience was just a fluke... it happens. Unfortunately, my review is not as glowing; with the exception of our server....More

For a celebratory business and relationship lunch, it's hard to imagine a better choice. Perfectly prepared lamb chops (portion really too large), and side vegetables (asparagus and mushrooms) both luscious. Well mixed drinks. Friendly, efficient waiter. Nice overall presentation. Only down size was that the...More

Crab cakes were delicious with chunks of crab. Filet mignon and prime were cooked to taste. Slightly charred in spots but not dry which is the way i love it. Mashed potatoes and creamed spinach were not large portions but were also delicious and can...More

Typical New York Steakhouse. Not much ambiance. Good, expensive steaks and routine side dishes. Service was adequate. A little tricky to find, even for a New Yorker. If you are in the mood for a pricey steak, there are better options.

Had lunch here with a couple of colleagues. Service prompt and food very good. I have to say I was a bit shocked at an average of around $40 for a lunch entrée though.

Located in New York's landmark Helmsley Building, Bobby Van's Steakhouse has been serving the best porterhouse in town for the last eleven years. Upon entering, one is greeted with the sight of a credenza groaning under the weight of large bottles of wine. A bar full of regular customers is on the left and looking into the one-hundred seat dining room, one sees the thirty foot high ceiling and windows overlooking Park Avenue. To complement our Prime Aged Steaks our Sommelier has created an award winning wine list. Whether you're looking for a big Cabernet, a Pinot Noir or something in between our comprehensive list is sure to please. "
