The combination of a traditional American grill combined with the classic elements of a first-rate steak house best describes Bobby Van’s fourth New York City location. Run by the same four partners who have been awarded Tom Horan’s American Top Ten Steakhouses in each of the past three years, the Grill caters to those seeking the legendary Bobby Van’s Porterhouse as well as lighter dishes such as pastas, salads and fish. All served with the renowned service that has been Bobby Van’s hallmark from its beginnings in 1969. As partner Joseph Hickey said “We’re all about pure, unadulterated customer happiness."

A decent choice for the theater district and very good for big groups and tourists. Typical steakhouse with options for appetizers and salads. Meats are pricey but as this is a steakhouse, it should not surprise. The burger was good (not great) as was the sausage flatbread. Service was good and got us out on time for the show. The surroundings are a bit updated and if steakhouse is your thing, there are other snazzier ones around.

You are treated like a VIP the second you walk through the door. The staff is very attentive and they make sure you have an optimal dining experience. We were there to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant was nice enough to give us complimentary wine to celebrate. The wine was very good.
Definitely will come back again.

Celebrated my birthday here before a show and was so much better than I expected. Food was absolutely amazing, homemade pasta dish was superb, the delicious wine I chose donated proceeds to wineries in Napa affected by wild fires. The entire staff was very attentive and friendly our whole time there. Looking forward to our next time in NYC.

It was our 3rd visit and 2nd at this location. I very much enjoy the food, the service and the ambiance of this location. I feel very at home here as it is quite similar to my favorite steak house at home in Baltimore. It is warm, welcoming and everyone from the greeter to the coat check and everyone in between treated us wonderfully well. We look forward to returning.

I took my husband here for his 40th birthday before we saw a broadway show. While the restaraunt itself is lovely + our waiter very friendly + attentive, we were so disappointed with our meals. My husband ordered a special -- a 30 ounce steak -- which was nothing special other than it's sides. His side dishes (mashed potatoes + roasted corn) were bland. I ordered a pizza which was undercooked (the crust was still doughy) + had way too much basil. We did enjoy the french onion soup. Considering the price, we were so surprised at the quality of food + would not reccomend Bobby Van's.
