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."

Atmosphere was great and food was amazing. Pricey...but for a special dinner, it's perfect.

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.

Chicken parm was poorly cooked. 2 separate orders. Manager bought desert - unrequestwd- but really they should have taken parm off bill. I am a regular customer of Bobby v. First time had a bad meal.

my friend and I met prior to theater for a Restaurant lunch. we decided the actual menu was to tempting so we order off it instead. the portions were just what we wanted. we both had different items and were extremely satisfied. my friend was so thrilled with the menu that she made a point of saying that the "girls" are always looking for a decent place to eat lunch without it costing a fortune and this is it. the waiter was attentive and the head waiter was constantly observing the guests for those that needed something. we now know that when we have theater in the 50's area this is a place for us.

The service was great and the food was good. My only complaint is that my friend and I both ordered steaks medium rare and both were partially well done...

They went out of their way to serve us quickly so we would make it
And they did it with a smile

After not being able to secure reservations at Carmine’s or Tony danopoli’s I was able to to get a reservation for my desired time. I must say. The food was very good and was very happy overall. Colossal crab cocktail was a great start and the seafood fradiavolo was surprising excellent. Porterhouse house for 2 is also highly recommended.
