About Bobby Van's Grill - New York Ave.
Bobby Van’s Grill marks the return of the powerful New York City chop shop to the downtown D.C. area but with a new twist. This eclectic New American Steakhouse now boasts a slightly more casual family friendly atmosphere as well as catering to the Washington politician. This 536-seat D.C. destination is fully loaded! There’s four private, intimate and upscale dining rooms with their own bar and bar services. Two 40-foot long bars can be found with friendly bartenders serving strong drinks and even stronger conversations. The main dining room boasts views of both New York Avenue and the plush marble atrium of the adjoining building amidst its beautiful water fountain. This is an ideal place to meet for power lunches, family gatherings and late night dinners in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Bobby Van's Grill - New York Ave. Ratings and Reviews
Had an amazing evening at Bobby Van’s Grill. I took my date as a surprise and she wasn’t the only one amazed. Everything was unbelievable, from the presentation/serving of the food to the all around service and atmosphere. I will defiantly be returning here
The New York Strip which I had was outstanding for its flavor, and the portion was very generous for the "smaller" size steak. The warm bread and pretzel sticks were also very good, as were the hashbrowns. although the broccoli was rather bland. Although the service was a little slow for a "slow" night--Sunday, my one complaint is with the wine list, which, while extensive, has no bottles for less than $50.
The food was delicious - the bacon wrapped scallops appetizer was enough to be a small meal! Everything was perfection, from the service to the ambiance. This is a gem! However, when making reservations, be sure to note the difference between Bobby Van’s Grill and Bobby Van’s Steakhouse. They are different restaurants at different addresses...
The food is fine, but it clearly helps if they know you. I made a reservation for myself and a companion - at her recommendation; she is a regular. I arrived first and was seated in a noisy passageway. She arrived and expressed surprise to find us sitting there - it was probably not what she was accustomed to. The food was lovely and fairly quickly presented. Getting the server to a) ask if we wanted coffee and/or dessert and b) pick up the bill when it was ready for payment, however, was a complex procedure. He was more interested in a different table - obviously, loudly and obsequiously. I ended up taking the bill to the front myself, probably embarrassing my companion, but neither of us had all day to sit there.
Despite the good food, I'm not going to go back enough times to make myself known to management - which, I suspect, is the key to adequate service. In fact, I'm not going back at all.
This was an amazing meal. This was not my first time at Bobby Vans, but everything was perfect Sunday night. The steaks and fish ordered by my table were all perfectly cooked. The waiter, Jose paid special attention to us. My cousin just ran the Marine Corps Marathon earlier in the day and he was ready for a juicy steak and he got one. His wife said this was the best meal she had ever had. Thanks BV.
My friend and I have the same birthday and this is our second year celebrating at BVG. The service is exceptional, managers check in and made note of birthday celebration for a wine and very special dessert! Bread pudding prepared in a way you have to see for yourself!
Love BV’s! The hosts are terrific along with the waiters. One minor criticism of the NY Ave restaurant -the bread basket. The bread basket at the 15th St NW restaurant is amazing. Not so much at the NY Ave location. Why can’t the NY Ave location mimic the 15th St and serve the same/similar bread and cracker assortment????
We went to Bobby Van's Grill on a Monday night, to celebrate my birthday, and absolutely enjoyed our experience. We were greeted at the door and seated immediately. The servers were attentive, nice, and offered us all the specials on the menu. The food tasted good and the ambiance was ideal for a date night or a get together with friends. Both the customers and servers were a bit on the older side, but no biggie, we enjoyed it nevertheless. We had the Cajun Rib Eye and the Lamb Shank with fries and roasted vegetables. It was a memorable dinner and a pleasurable experience. I highly recommend.
