Bobby Van's Grill Times Square Ratings and Reviews
I had noted on my reservation that we were there for a 16th bday celebration- upon our arrival we were given a lousy table right by the door. I had requested a nice quiet table - that’s not what we got Also, not one person acknowledged my nephews 16th bday. That was the most disappointing part of my dinner. This should have been a very special memory for him yet it was just a regular dinner. I had also noted we were going to the theater and I had to request the check twice - we barely made it to the opening of Hamilton. Overall pretty disappointing experience.
I will say I was not that impressed with my experience here. Upon entering the restaurant, we (my group of friends & I) stood by door, coat on, feeling like we were in the way, waiting to speak to hostess for about 25 minutes. It was not a welcoming environment. They called the day prior to confirm the reservation, and to ensure we knew of the 15 minute policy, yet we did not seat until about 8:15 pm for a 7:30 pm reservation. The food came out fast, but I will say we were not at all impressed as this is supposed to be a quality steakhouse. It was just okay. Also, there were not many liquor options and the drinks we did have was just okay. I do not think it was worth the value for what we paid. I would not come back nor recommend. I would partially accredit their price points to the Times Square location.
I came to this location during Restaurant Week. I regularly dine in the 45th and Park Bobby Van’s location in business settings and I am always amazed on the level of service, the quality of the food and the sides. This was a very disappointing experience because it felt more like a cafeteria type food service with dry bread and premade meals. Unfortunately, this seemed like a great example of an otherwise great restaurant compromising the quality of food and service for restaurant week, which is thankfully not the case with many other great restaurants in NYC!
Delicious food! Went there for NYC Restaurant Week and the portions were ample, not skimpy like other places. My burratta caprese appetizer was melt-in-your mouth. My husband loved the veal chop, and it was huge! That and my filet mignon were perfectly cooked. Servers were attentive and polite. My only quibble: cocktails were $18!!! That, said, they were balanced and well made, but a bit of sticker shock, given that the cocktail menu has no prices, so just be aware. For us, the overall value was well worth it, will go back!
We took advantage of restaurant week and had a wonderful dinner before going to see Hamilton. Everything was delicious and staff was very friendly. Recommend the filet and veal chop entrees. Thank you for participating in restaurant week. We will definitely come again.
A wonderful quiet spot amongst the noise of Times Square.
Service was great but the waiter could have told us that we’d order a little too much food. He commented after we had eaten and had so many left overs. That said he was super nice otherwise.
The food was great. Only the hash brown disappointed. More Bubble and Squeak than Hash Brown.
Would definitely go again
Pleasant surprise for a pre theatre dinner. We were seated at a table off in a side room that was very comfortable and moderately quiet. If you sit where people come in at the entrance, every time the door opens, you are blasted with cold air and people stand and wait for their tables brushing up against your chair. Ugh, I would not do that and felt sorry for those folks. We lucked out and had a great table with great service. Filet mignon and sea bass entrees were delicious, service fabulous and perfect amount of time to get to the theatre!
Food was good, but the Service was so slow and the older Host was incredibly rude, he ruined the whole night. He grabbed our check to rush us out of the restaurant, annoyed and complaining to me because he had others waiting for our table. If the service was faster maybe they could turn their tables quicker. We waited over 20 minutes just to order drinks then another 20 minutes before we got them! Don't rush my group of 6 if your staff can't handle the crowd.
Truth be told, the location on 50th street is larger and has a real feel of old world steak house, not to mention an incredible bar. On the other hand the Times Square location has so much natural light which so welcome in midtown Manhattan. I also like it for the convenience of being around the corner from my office, and the service is truly amazing!
