- Overpriced and unappetizingOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 11/1/2014First I would just like to say that the staff of the restaurant are extremely nice and serviceful. This review is in no way reflective of their efforts and work. The food though was absolutely not worth the money. I don't mind paying $55 for a steak but at the very least I expect it to taste good. It was plainly bland. Absolutely no flavor and over cooked.Special Features:
- Good - over priced for a steak.SusanDined on 10/25/2014First time to Bobby Van's. The steak and salad were very good, but I wouldn't say excellent. Much prefer Spark's.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice Night outDPG4153Dined on 10/24/2014First time to Bobby Van's. Food and staff were excellent. Definitely would return/recommend to a friend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious!PTrain14Dined on 10/22/2014Bobby Van's Steakhouse was delicious. Definitley go here for a special occasion as it is pretty fancy and pricey- but that's expected with a nice steakhouse. Good for business lunches and dinners. Waiters were great- we had a table of 12 and there were at least 5-6 people waiting on us. Ask to see the old bank vault on the lower level!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 10/8/2014Excellent for a quiet lunch when you need to talk.Special Features:
- Family DinnerKattsDined on 10/7/2014I went with some family. We had a get experience. The service was fantastic. But the food was fantastic. I had the aged rib-eye. So flavorful and tender. My cousin had the filet and it melted like butter.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- nothing specialrushrushrushDined on 10/7/2014Food and service were fine but I think this is a place you go for a burger not a steak diner
- Decor needs some help.BillyPVIPDined on 9/20/2014This restaurant is top notch. But the laminated reviews hanging on the walls are an eyesore and completely unnecessary. Once the client is inside, THEY'LL be the ones deciding if the food is good. No review is going to change their mind while they're sitting at the table. And there is a sign hanging over the credenza as customers enter the dining area that needs some attention. It reads 'PRIME MEATS", but the 'I' in prime has come loos with age and is now crooked. Gives the place a sloppy, unattended-to feel.Special Features:
- Very good steakhouseNYFoodieDined on 9/2/2014Quite expensive, but very good meat. Friendly staff, dine in an old bank vault.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Average Meal/Very Good ServiceFrequentDinerVIPDined on 8/29/2014Average meal, expensive, even by NYC standards. Very good service.
- Outstanding EveningebnycDined on 8/15/2014Bobby Van's on Broad Street was the perfect place to dine with close friends, family or a loved one. The front seating area has a beautiful view of the NYSE and very coz booths. The steaks are incredible! If you're not sure what size filet to order....order the larger one! There's always room for a delicious tender perfectly grilled Bobby Flay steak,Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Restaurant Week Hidden GemTonyDined on 8/15/2014We all know that some places trim their menus for Restaurant Week. Not so at Bobby's Van's on Broad Street. My friend and I perused a wide variety of beef and seafood choices, soups and salads and quality desserts. They did not disappoint. The steaks were cooked to order, the Malbec was smooth and rich, and the aforesaid desserts sufficiently decadent. On top of the meal, we were given a private tour of the Grill Vault even though it was closed Friday evening, a fantastic treat. A great place for a traditional Wall Street dining experience.Special Features:
- Beautiful and DeliciousFoodieDined on 8/15/2014It was truly a beautiful ambiance and a delicious meal. The desert was sublime and the service was impeccableSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great place to eat!AthenaDined on 8/13/2014I have been here a few times and every time I come back the food is always superb. It is an excellent place to eat with colleagues or in a large group. Everyone should eat in the vault at least once.Special Features:
- Great Lunch!StarDined on 8/11/2014My family and I had a very enjoyable experience at Bobby Van's Steakhouse. The food and service were great. We loved sitting in the vault!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good experienceKazmarskiDined on 8/9/2014The dinner that we had was great;however, it was fairly misleading with the vault. We picked this place as we both are engineers and thought it was a fantastic idea to turn an old vault in the financial district into a restaurant. Yet, when we were there we were not able to sit in the vault, or even see it as it was closed to the public. Overall it was good but it definitely took away from the experience as we were planning to be in the vault. Wish they just stated that before hand. Of the food, I recommend the maple glazed balsamic bacon and the salmon. Both very very good.Special Features:
- Awesome!GigiVIPDined on 8/8/2014Great for group of 8 people (including kids), we loved our meal, even the kids who are picky eaters. Friendly staff, we were really happy to have found this place on our first trip to New York.Special Features:

- awesomeanna12Dined on 8/1/2014Went to this restaurant for restaurant week with my boyfriend and some friends. My friends arrived first and already they were seated. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted, taken in to the rest of our party and seated. We also.asked about the Vault dining area which was downstairs and lucky for us we got a tour. It was so nice and we learned somewhat about the restaurant background. The food was great for all us and even though we didn't get a drink menu we still received great service. Everyone was attentive, helpful and accommodating. Definitely will go here again!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great for Out of Town GuestsOutofTownerVIPDined on 7/30/2014We brought business colleagues from Japan for lunch. Food was good, martinis properly served. Service was attentive up until time to pay bill. Waiter disappeared and someone else took care of it after an awkward delay.Special Features:

- Nothing specialAnnabananaDined on 7/24/2014I had steak that came with mash potatoes and onions. The food was not great and was cold.not worth it... Such a waste of money
- Bobby Van's gets my voteAvy2014Dined on 7/24/2014I thought the service was really good. The waitress was very nice and respectful. A gentle man who appeared to be the manager was accommodating and respectful as well. I enjoyed the select lunch menu for restaurant week. Overall great experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- AmazingOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/22/2014Food was amazing. Had the Chilean sea bass. Amazing!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Restaurant Week VisitOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 7/22/2014We came here for the Restaurant Week Lunch Menu. Since it is a steakhouse, we didn't have high expectations on the appetizers and desserts. So we weren't surprised that both were just ordinary, just ok. For our entrees, we ordered the sliced steak sandwich. It came with a side of fries, which were horrible. But the sliced steak was delicious; if only they could have hold the bread and the fries. Because we were here and paid Restaurant Week prices, there are no complaints.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lunch in a bank vault - pretty coolOpenTable Diner Since 2006VIPDined on 7/11/2014Much more than burgers and beers, I had the steak sandwich which was rather good and my companion had lobster ravioli. Both were very good, the burgers looked great. Service was excellent and the atmosphere is very Wall St. If you are in the are and you are looking for a great lunch spot without killing the bank, this is a great spot.Special Features:
- Porterhouse For Twosteakfor2Dined on 7/2/2014Bobby Van's Resautant came highly recommended to me by a friend that has a simple palate and loves delicious food. He could not rave enough about the quality of the food and he definitively recommended the porterhouse steak for two. Delicous doesn't do this steak enough justice. The steak literally melted in our mouths with so much flavor it was like a celebration. The other aspects of our dining experience which will bring us back time and again were the excellent teamwork of the staff and the beauty of the dining room. We were able to enjoy our food and each others company with the perfect combination of staff assistance for any need that arose and discreetness. I look forward to our next visit to Bobby Van's Restaurant .Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing Steakhouse!Love2DineDined on 7/1/2014This is a great restaurant with wonderful food (filet oscar)*, service, & ambiance! It's everything my husband and I had hoped it would be and would definitely return! Our waiter was wonderful with our 7yr old, brought him fresh fruit in a chocolate bowl which was a hit with all of us. Thank you for being the fine restaurant you are. May you have continued success!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great end to a daynittanyDined on 6/26/2014After a day spent at the 911 Museum our foursome found the perfect place. Friendly staff was very accommodating and we could choose from either lunch or dinner menu. The drinks were perfect and since it was around 4, we chose soups, onion and gazpacho. Two of us had the Nicoise salad while the other two had the shrimp and crab salad. could not have been better. This is now a must stop and we recommend Bobby Vans to everyone.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great spot to bring a clientDine4lunchDined on 6/17/2014It is walking distance from the NYSE and was very convenient to bring my clients. The good was great along with a great wine list. The lunch menu turned out to be pretty reasonable as well.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- underwhelmedLorettaDined on 5/7/2014The ambiance is lovely, this old bank beautifully renovated w/ a feel of a classic steak house. However, the service & food were wanting. The waiter an unsmiling & dour man w only a passing interest in supporting a pleasant dining experience. Middling service during the meal & we were ignored at the end. A guest accidentally spilled her water glass & while the waiter noticed us grabbing napkins off other tables, he didn't assist. I had to sit alone, my guests went on with their day, unable to wait for the check. Finally, a busboy helped. It was another 10 minutes before my credit card was charged & I could leave. The food (shrimp salad) was middling. At the price, not worth it. I won't be back.
- Always a good timecycler88VIPDined on 3/21/2014Bobby Vans is one of those spots which is just so reliable. There was a party in our building Friday early so we decided to step out for a nice dinner. Bobby Vans downtown does this half priced wine list Friday and Saturday nights; which was awesome. We got a great Argentinian wine for a great price. we thought we knew what we were getting but then the server came over and pitched the specials and we wound up getting this amazing petite filet with crab meat and spinach tossed over top. the dish came with boiled potatoes but if you're feeling indulgent, sub their amazing mashed; you'll be glad you did.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Year ThreeMartinDined on 3/15/2014Three years ago, on the weekend before St. Patrick's Day, I happened on Bobby Van's for the first time. I was in NYC to see my children run in the NYC Half Marathon, and was at loose ends. I met the Maitre'D, Robert, at the door and offhandedly mentioned I'd like a good steak. Last Saturday was my third annual visit, The prime filet cuts are magnificent, as well as specialties like Filet Oscar, Beef Wellington, and fresh salmon filet encrusted in horseradish. The wine list is spectacular. See Robert on Saturdays. Sides are served family style. I've had my fun at poseurs like Capitol Grill and Ruth's Chris - even Smith and Wollensky's. But, for value, delight in serving patrons, and uncompromising excellence, there is no place better.Special Features:
- Good Choice in the Fin. DistrictpaulmDined on 3/8/2014Ordered filet mignon "Oscar" special, no starters or desserts. Food was very good, a little pricey, and service was excellent. Wanted to see the downstairs vault area but it was closed. The manager, Robert, agreed to take us down to the vault via the kitchen and we were able to take some photos. All wines were at 50% off making it a good value. I highly recommend this restaurant.Special Features:
