Our petite filet mignons were not so petite... and that’s a good thing! Perfectly prepared, with creamed spinach and fries, preceded by a shared serving of tomato and burrata cheese. Washed down by a glass of Merlot, with gelato sliders (Yes, that’s right!) and coffee finishing off the meal in style! We’ll be back!

We dined at this restaurant after a show. We were 45 minutes early and they were able to accommodate us immediately. My son has food allergies, and the restuarant reached out to us prior to our reservation to understand the need and make sure they could accommodate him. The food was very good. We had Filet Mignon (14 ounces!!) and Lamb Chops. The service was outstanding and dinner was served in a timely manner. Its in the perfect location to park, walk around Times Square and/or see a show. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.

The people at the next table had bugs so the restaurant picked up their bill. I’m sure the bugs weren’t that far away from me since it was the next table

Original waiter took drink order then disappeared. Other waiter servicing tables near us stepped in and no further issues. Comped coffee. Would go back as not normal for this restaurant and food always excellent.

Fabulous food, friendly staff, can get a little noisy.
We got lucky and got placed in the back where less tables were in use and therefore quieter.

First, the service was horrible. We had a horrible experience at the restaurant. We walked in at around 9:30pm, we didn’t get greeted by the host which we felt very unwelcome. We got seated at a table right next to the coat check and we requested a table change because we wouldn’t want to be liable if anything do go missing. We got seated at a table that was ok, but it was really cold. The server was not very informative with the menu. Everything just seem very unorganized and we expected it to be better because of the restaurant name with their several locations.

We went to the restaurant during the restaurant week. We had burrata caprese and Caesar salad for appetizers which were good, but fillet mignon and broiled veal chops were outstanding. Liked a lot their sauce for chops. Two deserts, chocolate mousse and peacan fudge, were also excellent. The hostess, the manager, the chef, and our waiter did a great job to make our meal memorable. Thank you!

Spur of the moment date night reservation that day. We selected from 3 course Restaurant Week menu. Food came quickly. Mushroom soup was delicious, filet mignon perfectly done and flavorful, and chocolate mousse cake just the right finish. Hostess was so warm and accommodating, and we were out in plenty of time to make our show. Will certainly be back.

The service was great, but the food was mediocre. I had a steak salad. It was literally, a few plum tomatoes lettuce and about 6 small slices steak for $32. My friend had the salmon. He said it was mediocre. He didn't finish it all. The French onion soup had no flavor. I actually thought to add salt to my soup! Ultimately it is waaaay overpriced for the quality of food.

Bobby Van's Times Square is conveniently located near the Theater District so they cater to the Broadway show crowds with efficient, organized service. Buses, subway stations and Grand Central Terminal are within a short walk and there is outdoor seating on good-weather days. Restaurant Week offers first-time diners to Bobby Van an opportunity the fine fare; we tried the chili-flavored calamari along with our salads and it was uniquely flavorful (a peanut dipping sauce made it even more exotic). The steaks were cooked to perfection. Our server was on-the-money polite and attentive. We were seated on the second level with low lighting and a modern motif; not much in the way of a scenic view when seated indoors.
Very nice, Bobby Van's!

Went for restaurant week. $42 3 course dinner. Filet mignon was tender and delicious. Lentil soup was good but small portion. Desserts were underwhelming. Wine very expensive. That $42 dinner ended up costing $82 after tip and tax. Probably won’t return too soon.

I have eaten at the Bobby Vans on 45th and Park many times, and the food is excellent. I’m sorry to say that the food at this location was barely edible. We sent 2/5 dishes back to the kitchen because we could not eat it.

The waiter was extremely accommodating and kind, but overall the experience was mediocre.

Main entrees for Restaurant Week were delicious and excellently prepared ! Drink prices were high...asked for house bourbon and that was $22. Wow !!! Drink orders took forever even when we asked again ....we were told the internet was down and credit cards could only be used if all information was written on a piece of paper that would later be put into system ....never heard of that before!!!!

Food was good but service was horrible. Was not offered a wine menu. Was given a dessert menu before we even ate our main course. Not what you expect when you are paying so much. Most of the food was good except for the mashed potatoes. Tasted like instant mashed.

We went Restaurant week so we were able
To have the specials. We all ordered the Filets
They were excellent great portions! The service was excellent. We were there early at 4:30pm on Saturday and was not crowded yet. Will definitely go back when in New York City. Excellent location close to Times Square and theaters within walking distance of both. Looking forward to going back next time going to a broadway show!

Food was delicious and perfectly cooked. Ideally located for a pre-theatre meal. We did the restaurant week menu, which was a good value. Reasonable wine-by-the-glass menu, but I didn’t browse the full bar menu to know the extent of their offerings. Service was initially a little slow, but I think they were trying to give us our space instead of pressuring us to order which is also appreciated. Only complaint is the area we were seated in was quite crowded, so conversations were easily overheard, and I felt the need to continually scoot my chair in closer than comfortable to allow customers and waitstaff through.
