Bobby Van's Grill - 50th Street
If You Want Good Food and ActionBobby Van's is the place to be! Went for pre-theater prixe-fixe dinner. Excellent location, not in the heart but short walk to most theaters. The special menu provides a wonderful selection from their a la carte menu. Of course bar is not included, coffee tea is extra. Includes most succulent and famous steaks. Service was very good. Just one slip up on order, which was immediately corrected.
Because it is a bar and grill, it is noisey with an after work crowd. Was voted one of the best after work spots in the city. Despite the noise, still had a wonderful meal.
PS they sell their steak knives. Reasonably priced and a great gift.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVED IT ALLHad a show at Cit Center and picked this restaurant because it was close to the Theatre...I know that there are a few Bobby Vans scattered throught NYC but this was my first time at this one. I thought that it was terrific.
I will be driving out to the East End of LI this summer to hopefully have the same diining experience out there as I had in NYC..
WELL DONE..All the ladies loved it..6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMquick business lunchWe had a limited amount of time but still wanted to have a nice lunch and not feel rushed. This was perfect. Service was excellent and the food was very good. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Would like to go back and explore the menu again when I have more time.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have made a number of visitsWe have made a number of visits to Bobby Vans when we are in town and have never been disappointed.
The steaks are excellent, service the same and we love the ambience of the restaurant.
If you haven't been give it a try.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak extraordinaire!Outstanding steakhouse in a city with many outstanding steakhouses. To rate well in this category you have to be real good and Bobby Vans is really good!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat for pre-theater dinner.great for pre-theater dinner. The food was very good and the service was excellent.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat After show dinner spot!The food and service was exceptional. It was my first time dining at this establishment. The service was prompt and the food was fantastic, especially dessert. Great place for an early dinner after a matinee, close to most theatres.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat $30.00 BurgerHad a great burger but a bad waiter. He described the burger as being 16 oz., and while it was sizable it was maybe 10 oz. My selected another meal to avoid the huge burger he described. I got one with gorgonzola and bacon and it was great but I was realy taken back when I saw they charged me $3.00 extra for the gorgonzola on my $25.96 burger! Still it was a VERY GOOD burger. so I would go back and eat one again but get another waiter for sure. Also, this restaurant has no ranch salad dressing. We just found that very strange.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMKnown for Steak, But Try the Pizza!Known for its Eastern dry aged beef, the Porterhouse for two will serve 3 or 4 if you are light eaters or order multiple fixings. Bobby's Mac and Cheese is not to be missed. I ask for a little pancetta to be sprinkled over the top and placed under the grill. Yum. You can ask for things not shown on the menu and might be surprised what the kitchen can do. This Bobby Van's on 50th St was formerly an Italian Restaurant and Bobby inherited the brick oven. They turn out a surprisingly good pie with a crispy crust. The martinis are generous and the staff very efficient. Walkable from the Broadway theatre district and Rockefeller Center.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoy it AFTER the theatre crowdOnce the theatre crowd moves out, about, 8pm, the tempo slows way down such that you can enjoy the mood and meal. My strip steak was darn near perfect but the hash brown potatoes OMG! A bit pricey but less than some of the well known chains.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food/service, but costlyThe food and service were excellent. It is a bit pricy so expect to pay about $100 per person with a glass or two of wine. Additionally, it is noisy when you first walk in, but once seated it was quiter.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals my wifeOne of the best meals my wife and I experienced in quite awhile. Our waiter was John, he was not only a true professional, his menu recommendations were perfect. Our dinner arrived at our table as he recommended, cooked to our likings and tasted delicious. The ambiance of the restaurant just added to a great evening experience. John and the other staff were friendly, professional and attentive throughout the evening. When we return to NY, we will once again return to Bobby Van’s.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat but priceyWas surprised how good meal was. The service was great. I was also srprised when bill came; a little overpriced to say the least. Steak for two, one appetizer and one side with 2 glasses wine and one vodka and bill was 180 dollars. luckily service and company made it worth the visit.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst trip to Bobby Van'sFirst trip to Bobby Van's and the food was excellent. No problem ever returning here and they offer conveinence to Rockefeller Center also. Definitely check this restaurant out if your in NYC and want a great meal.12/5/2012 12:00:00 AM
