Kid friendly near theater district
My 12 year old daughter and I ate at Bobby Van's Grill in Time's Square - only 1 block from our theater on a Friday night. They read my notes from Open Table and seated us near a window just as I asked. My daughter had a burger and I had the special - horseradish encrusted salmon over asparagus and mashed potatoes - everything tasted fantastic! Our waited suggested the Tartufo dessert - perfect ending to our meal. Total price for the two of us with a glass of wine not bad at $86.I would go back again and dine outside during the summer. Excellent location close to theater district.

Excellent choice for pre-theatre. One of the best restaurants in the Times Square area.
Great for a business lunch or dinner.

Took my wife to this restaurant for her birthday, from the moment we stepped in they did not disappoint. The service was excellent and they did not rush you but were very attentive. Now I had the bone in rib eye which was cooked perfectly good flavor tender juicy all that I expected. My wife had the filet oscar she was impressed (which made it good for me) I would definitely recommend them to anyone who desires an excellent meal.

great food ! lousy service!
As far as food is concerned the dinner was just great.
Steaks were grilled to perfection. The sides were
really good especially the roasted corn. Caesar salad was superb.
My question is how can a waiter be so disengaged with the customer.
First he never brought bread. He had no personality and just cant
figure why he chose this field. Never wanted to see how things were.
He brought everything very quickly but just no pizazz.
The busboy was friendlier picking up the dishes.
Left a 15% tip which we shouldnt have because it doesnt express

The were very professional, food was excellent and the ambience was great. I definitely would add this restaurant to my list of places to dine in NY city.

Service and food were top
Service and food were top notch, what you'd expect from a top steak house. My only issue with this new restaurant was that the tables are awkwardly situated and you feel like you're on top of one another. Waiters kept brushing by me as they went to serve other patrons.

I brought a few friends to this place after drinking all day at the Perfect Pint across the street. They wanted to go to a good steakhouse and I said how convenient. They didn't think I tried hard enough to look for a place, but Bobby Van's they were very happily surprised.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
I love it there!
This place is awesome. I love Bobby Van's. The food is phenomenal!

The food & the service was excellent! I work across the street and this was my first time dining at Bobby Van's. I was thoroughly satisifed with the experience and definitely plan on returning.
6/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
They have the best steak salad in the city!!! The managers are super friendly and if the weather is nice sit outside!!

We enjoyed our dinner. My
We enjoyed our dinner. My wife's lentil soup was excellent as was my Caesar salad. The entrees, sole meunier (sic) and horseradish crusted filet mignon were also delicious and cooked to order. We will return again especially when we have theatre tickets.

theatre district treat
Now that summer is here, Bobby Van's is the perfect place for an outdoor dinner prior to theater. A fun menu makes it possible to enjoy everything from a hamburger plate to a full steak dinner. Staff was very accommodating, food was delicious. We will definitely be back!
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyable atmosphere, food
I took my clients out to eat here and had a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and his recommendations were spot-on.
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
I booked this place last minute and took 2 friends visiting from
England. We sat outside and the 'view' was the street, but they got a kick out of the busyness of NY. You could also see the Lyceaum Theatre, which is a beautiful building. It came to $258 inc tip and cocktails for 4 people and we ate dessert elsewhere (wanted I take our friends to Magnolia). I ate the tomato and mozerella then the chicken francese. Both were delicious and big portions. The burgers are huge also. The place seems a little posh but not snobby at all and very welcoming. It was hard to choose from the cocktails as they all were so appealing but went with The Lemon Drop, which was delicious (and $18). I would definitely go back, probably for a special occasion.

Light pre-theater dining
Seated promptly @6:15 reservation Sat nite outside. Friendly service but had to ask 4 times for lemon for our water. Appetizers & salads were very good. Large salads and healthy appetizer portions. Comfortable table size & sidewalk venue. Perfectly fine for us but we did not have the steaks or burgers they're known for. Table next to us had burger & pasta dish which looked good & they enjoyed.

Classic NY Food at its Best
Unpretentious presentation, but the food is the thing. Good quality ingredients, simply prepared, well presented, and served correctly.
I went back, and I'm sure most people do.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
YOU HAVE TO GO....
if you can, do go to BOBBY VAN'S for lunch or dinner.....You will be glad that you did...The food was sooooo good....We are still talking about it....

We had a very enjoyable time.
We had a very enjoyable time. Manager Louis Clavell was very accomodating. Our only complaint was the steak my boyfriend ordered was served medium rare when he had asked for medium well; he was able to salvage most of the meat,
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We tried this restaurant because it was estaurant week so the price was fixed at $38 for a 3 course meal. It was great! My filet was cooked perfectly! The service was excellent, too. A pet peeve of mine is when a waiter removes my husband's plate from the table because he finishes eating before I do. This restaurant waited until both of us were done before clearing the dishes. Glad we went!

Excellent value with 2013
Excellent value with 2013 Restaurant Week menu. Perfect for pre-theatre east of 7th Avenue.

Good Choice in the Theater District
We had a great outside table for people-watching. The food was very good. I recommend the warm spinach salad, the lamb chops and the petit filet mignon.
The service was not as attentive as it should have been, but we weren't in a hurry so it really wasn't a problem for us.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wanted a great steak meal while in NYC and found it here!!! The steak was cooked exactly as we asked, and the filet mignon was so tender it melted in your mouth.
I had a ceasar salad to start and it was the best Ceasar I have ever had. Ask to have the mashed potatoes instead of fries, they are delicious!!
Ended it with a classic NY Cheesecake and it was delicious!!
Overall the entire dinner was so worth the cost!!

My brother and I went to dinner
My brother and I went to dinner at the restaurant. We ordered steak and the food was excellent. The steak was cooked exactly as I ordered it. The place is setup very nice. It's a comfortable dining room atmosphere. Excellent and friendly service. I would definitely return to try more dishes.

Great Diner Experience
We went for a pre theatre diner and it was outstanding.
The steak was cooked to perfection.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must do again
The outstanding food was memorable. Can't wait to dine there again.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Restaurant Week Gem!
We went for dinner during restaurant week. Our $38 got us soup/salad, entre and desert and coffee. The salads were large and tasty, three of us ordered Caesar and it was very good. Most of us ordered the filet and mashed potato. We were expecting a silver dollar sized filet (and rightfully so) but we received a delicious "palm+" size filet that was delicious. We sampled all four desert offerings and all were good. Coffee was too strong for my taste. An excellent dinner out and we will definitely be back!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice and quiet spot near Times Sq.
I took advantage of restaurant week to come to Bobby Vans and I'm real happy I did. The food was really great, and the service was provided from a really nice guy who took care of anything we needed. The deal for $38 is really amazing considering the filet alone is 45 if I recall.. We got three courses for $38 which is unbelievable.
I used to work near the one on Park Ave and never went, only had take out for company outings but the spot by Times Square was really nice. Loved how nice the view was, we sat inside to escape the noise of the area. Would definitely go back.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and good service
The food was very tasty and the martini perfect. Did not have to wait long for the food and the service was friendly. I would go back to dinner there.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dined during Restaurant
We dined during Restaurant Week and we thought since we had to ask for a "special Restaurant Week menu" that the selections would be limited and assumed the portion size would be much smaller. Not so. There were quite a few options and the portion size was the same as if we were to order off the regular menu. From appetizer to dessert the meal was excellent and all 3 of us were quite happy.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Restaurant Week Deal
We enjoyed the Restaurant Week lunch which was a great deal, There was a good selection of entrees at a great price. Food and service were both good. Although the view is not great, it was a nice day to sit outside and enjoy lunch. We asked the host to sit us near the TV so my husband could watch the Yankees game, and he gave us an outdoor table with a perfect view of the TV in the bar. We appreciated the special treatment!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Before the show
We got reservations for 6:30 pm on a Saturday night on Saturday morning. I expected less than we got. We were met at the door by a maître d who knew our name and party size before I had to say it. We chose to sit inside because of the hi volume of Pre broadways show people moseying along 45th St.The waiters were attentive, and knowledgeable, the drinks cam e quickly and hit the spot. The shrimp cocktail appetizers were delicious and the streaks were done just as we asked, The creamed spinach could have been a little creamier, but other than that everything was great. We got out in plenty of time to get to our show and never felt rushed, unlike many of the other Theater district eateries.
We'd go again.

Second time around
The first time I went to Bobby Van's in Time Square was for a business dinner. The food, wine selection, and service were superb.
Recently, I was vacationing with my wife and children and decided to try it again. We sat outside on a beautiful summer night people watching as we had a wonderful dinner. Again, the service was exceptional as before paying particular attention to my young children's need. Well done! We will be back!

I was surprised that at 8pm
I was surprised that at 8pm on a Saturday night in August the restaurant was relatively empty. Our server Nik was awesome and the food was pretty good, although not as great as the prices suggest. The drink prices were much higher than I was expecting, but maybe in Times Square $18 for a drink is standard. It's not a bad place and is good one time, but is not a place I'd frequent if I lived closer.

Love Open table
great steak, nice wine by the glass. The Buffalo Seafood was GREAT

Above and Beyond
Aside from the delicious food and outstanding wait service our host also went above and beyond to help us out. During dinner my husband discovered he forgot his show tickets, the host Louis helped us out by printing the tickets for us. Great place, happening happy hour.

Excellent service and a table for 2 right at the window.... I had lunch with a college lacrosse team mate who is an attorney and the noise level was low so we had no trouble conversing and being heard as we talked business and personal... Food was excellent with the right amount of service touch..

Great mid town location tucked off 6th ave on 45th street. Solid menu. Very good NY strip steak. cooked perfectly. Creamed spinach was perfect. French Fries were great. Service was great. Nice spot for a casual business lunch or pre theatre.
