I have eaten here before. The food quality has dropped and price has gone up. Bone-in Ribeye was poor cut.

Everything about Bobby Van's was amazing. The food was delicious, the service was impeccable and the atmosphere was relaxing and enjoyable. I loved it so much that I will recommend it to my friends and certainly visit the restaurant as often as I can. I absolutely loved it.

It was very empty. Which meant nice and quiet. We had a lovely table. Delicious steak. They gave us each a complimentary champagne for our birthdays.

The food was not at the level you would expect from a place like Bobby Vans. The Caesar salad lettuce didn’t look fresh or crisp, the steak sandwich - while yummy -didn’t have a lot of steak in it, the bread was very dense and not of great quality. The best thing about my meal was the onion rings which is pretty sad when you’re eating at a steakhouse. I am definitely not going back for steak lunch anymore, maybe the dinners are better but not going to check that out anytime soon.

Lunch was fabulous, although I would order the Caesar Salad over their garden (nothing but mixed greens and 2 pieces of tomato), friends who ordered Caesar said it was delicious. Sliced steak was plentiful and cooked to perfection, and our waitress was so attentive (probably took a dozen pictures of our table till she felt it was right; such an amazing experience at Bobby's! Will definitely visit again!

Having dined at other Bobby Van’s I was expecting better. Went there for a pre Broadway dinner. Knowing that this was a newer restaurant, I was expecting something special and was looking forward to it. The restaurant space and ambiance is underwhelming at best. It’s cramped and tight and there is absolutely nothing special about it. At least 1 to 2 rungs under what would be expected. For a 6pm reservation in the middle of July the restaurant air was far from cool, refreshing and circulating. The heat in the restrooms was sweltering. Sat for at least 10 minutes before a waiter even acknowledged we were there. The food was good but not great. The prices were as high as I think is legal in NYC. Having said that it was the perfect place to have dinner as a prelude to the July 13th black out of 2019.

Having a couples dinner before a show. Ordered an old fashioned, it was not drinkable. Mentioned it to the waiter, charged me for my replacement drink- unacceptable! For the price point of the meal, a subpar experience.

Upstairs seating is weird (no ambiance). Waitress was terrible. Slow to return to table, stood by the kitchen door talking to a guy most of the time. Steak was not flavorful at all, very boring. Definitely will never return.

Great food and service. Beautiful restaurant near Times Square. Accommodated us when we asked to sit on the main floor instead of upstairs. My 90 year old mother would have had a difficult time with all the stairs. Everything we ordered was delicious. Calamari, crispy artichoke salad, shrimp scampi, all wonderful. Our server couldn't have been better. He put a rush on our orders so that we could make it to the show on time. Highly recommend.

We are here on high recommendation of a friend. But to start off, we've been in many steakhouses in NYC, NJ, CA, IN, etc. and are comparing this with some of the beat ones. Honestly, we were disappointed. The steak was nothing to brag about. At best I would rate it average compare to Gallaghers for example. Prices are reasonable. Service was good but nothing of excellence. Juat average.

Service was fine but the food was poor. We ordered spaghetti and meatballs and shrimp pasta. The meatballs were cold and tasted of cheese. The shrimp pasta was bland.

My wife and I were in town from Washington DC and we're able to reserve a table outside for us and another couple from Brooklyn. The service was amazing and the food was even better.

Kudos!!

This was nothing special. It is however, very convenient to theater shows--so that is why we went there. The servers were very nice and the food was good--just nothing you cannot get in lots of other places.

We showed up early and were taken in right away. We ordered filet mignon and it was delicious. The asparagus were stringy and tasteless. The mashed potatoes were bland. After our waiter took our order and brought the food, he ignored us for most of the meal. We would have liked a second glass of wine but no one was available to talk to. We ordered a pecan fudge cake for dessert and it was lovely. The cost for 2 people with wine and dessert was over $200. Although we came for steak and did enjoy it, the other aspects of the meal left quite a bit to be desired. I would be happy to pay $200 for a truly exceptional steak dinner but left disappointed.

Inadequate service. Server forgot drink order and side order until he had to be reminded. Drinks came after our food. Fatty steaks undercooked. Ordered dessert and coffee. Coffee arrived after dessert and was cold , clearly the last batch. Had to ask for the check multiple times. Server had more important things to do like joking around and playing games back in the kitchen. Head server tried to cover for terrible server but was visibility upset with subpar server in front of us, very uncomfortable. All of this occurred from 6:00- 7:30 with only 3 other tables seated around us. Would not recommend. Terrible start to a visit to nyc.
