A classic, all but flawless
Classic steakhouse atmosphere, along with flawless, no-nonsense service. The steaks are great, the sides are fine. The martinis are generous. The only minus the night we were there were the soggy hash browns. It's a lively place, brimming with testosterone, just as it should be.

This is an old school steakhouse with alot of old
dark wood, wood tables etc. service was good always attending to our needs
constantly. We ordered the ribeye with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach.
The steaks were cooked to perfection. The potatoes were
very good. We ordered a bottle of Cab and yes it was double the price that you
could buy in the store but what he heck it was overall a delicious meal.

Great spot for biz lunch
Service was top-notch. Our waiter was very professional. I had grilled salmon with spinach and mustard sauce and it was excellent. My lunch partners had salads and they thoroughly enjoyed them. Prices are fair for the quality. I recommend it highly!

Everything was perfect, couldn't ask for anything better besides the pricing to be better.

Bobby Van's is loud but good
We went to Bobby Van's for a 20th anniversary dinner, never having been there before but relying on reviews found online. The food is very good, excellent "steakhouse" steaks (big and tasty) with nice sides. Only downside is the noise level - it's one room, not terribly large, and the acoustics of the room just made the place quite noisy. Aside from that we enjoyed our dinner, service was great and I would recommend.

Always a great choice
We went for lunch this time. While other diners were ordering the steaks (how can one eat so much at lunch and go back to work?) we stuck to the luncheon menu. Burgers were first rate, steak sanwiches were top notch. A great place for a business luncheon.

Food and service - great
We went there for restaurant week lunch. In some restaurants you just get the feeling that "they are tolerating you during the promo week." This was not the case at all. Everything was excellent: food - tasty and generous portion; and service - friendly and efficient.

Plymouth Gin martini was excellent as was the meal, but the waiter could use some training about timing.

My first time here
but not my last. Again tried this place for restaurant week. I have and continue to be disappointed in many restaurant week menus - but NOT HERE - it was great! And plentiful! While I did get some meat in some type of sauce with mushrooms, it was cooked perfectly. The service was wonderful - our waiter could not have been more pleasant or professional. Overall I would definitely recommend this place - just keep in mind this is a true New York steakhouse experience. Oh - and the bread basket was amazing as well!

Everything was just right
First time at BV's. We were greeted and seated as if we were their most important customer. It was a meal to remember. The bacon appetizer was best I ever had. We had three for dinner and had ribeye, grouper special and a petite filet. They all came out perfect. My bone in ribeye was sizzling hot just the way I like it. Service was prompt but not rushed. Friends told me this place was good and I agree.

Best steakhouse and much more...
Excellent steaks and chops cooked perfectly. Wonderful fig appetizer and lots of specials. Chef clearly pays attention to details. Attentive service and a nice wine list round out a great experience.

Had lunch with my Mom, who was visiting from out of town. She had a crabmeat blt, which she very much enjoyed. I had a steak sandwich. Generous portion of steak, seasoned and grilled nicely. Last time I went my friend had the lobster roll, a generous portion of lobster, and I had the gazpacho, which was delicious. They can do more than just steak. Waiters are very attentive. The host used my OpenTable name to greet me, despite my only having been there once before. Nice touch if you are trying to impress guests. For a midtown at a real steak house, prices are reasonable. I like to try a place a few times before using it for business, and this restaurant passed the test with flying colors. Would very much reccomend for a business lunch.

We go to Bobby Vans on EVERY trip to NYC because there is nothing better than a true NYC neighborhood restaurant that has outstanding service, great food, and fun atmosphere! Highly recommend!

Went to dinner before the NYC marathon for a substantial meal. The service was outstanding, the steaks melted in our mouth and all wines half price. An excellent dinning experience. I would highly recommend.

Best prime rib
My dad LOVES prime rib and he said the prime rib special was the best he's ever had! The skirt steak and filet were magnificent as well!

The food was excellent. The price was a little on the higher side, but I'll pay money for good food any time.

A place that has it al!!
My wife and I go out to dinner a few times a month. It has been a while since we dined at a restaurant that had it all. Great food, great service, great atmosphere and it was affordable! It was our first time there and our server made us feel like we have been going there for years! I am glad we chose it to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. We will be back soon.

I went here with a friend that was visiting New York. The service started out pretty rocky because they were inattentive, but they rebounded in the second half of the meal. Excellent steak, good crab cakes, and a nice reasonably priced bottle of wine. I can envision it being really noisy in this place at times, but I will consider coming back here
