We ate here on a Wednesday lunchtime when it wasn't really busy but it still had a good atmosphere. This is how you would imagine your typical American steak house with your bar area alongside the restaurant.

Having already eaten plenty of meat whilst away, I opted for the Chinese Chicken salad. A strange choice for a steakhouse but it was lovely and would certainly recommend. My colleague had the fillet that was cooked to perfection.

Not cheap but would certainly recommend.

On Friday evening, I had a wonderful filet at Bobby Van's. The food was great! Every aspect of the dinner was lovely, and the evening was made even better by the very attentive and gracious waiter. He did not intrude at any time but made some great suggestions, especially when the wine ordered was not available. I will go back..and I will highly recommend Bobby Van's on 50th to my friends!

A group of us from outside the US attending a conference were referred to this restaurant for a good evening out. The food was good and the server helpful and knowledgable. For one course with wine the price we paid over $100 each - the service charge automatically tagged on at 20% raised our bill considerably. It was not the restaurant's fault it happened to one of those worst storms ever but it was their fault when they refused to call for a couple of taxis and left us to stand in the pouring rain to try our luck hailing a cab- shame on them! Will definitely not return. What a sorry end to a good evening spoiled by this blatant lack of consideration for the customer once we has settled the bill.

Ever been to a restaurant in which the servers behave as if they're NOT happy to see you? This is it! From the moment you're seated to the moment you depart, the servers behave as if it's your job to have a good time in spite of their disinterest. They're effective...take an order, bring the drinks and food. But a kind word? A smile? A thank you? A "glad you're here?" Not here. Management needs to spend a bit more time teaching hospitality. The food was OK. But there are better steakhouses in NYC.

The place is located in Times Square. Somewhat pricy but worth it. Steak was juicy and very well prepared, see food was excellent and even pasta was very good.Service was excellent and the experience was fantastic.
