Sam, our waiter was top notch. Would go back again solely if he was to be working
Always a pleasant experience .
Staff was so friendly. My husband and I took our kids to Bobby Van’s for dinner and the staff treated our children like celebrities! Really made them feel special. Food was as delicious, service was wonderful! Perfect place for a nice dinner out in the city!
We have been to Bobby Van's many times over the years. Typically we save it for special occasions as it can be an expensive outing. It's been maybe a year since we last went, and the food and service was as fine as it always is. I'm a big fan of the cold seafood tower and their porterhouse steaks and hash browns are terrific. My one setback this time was that they raised their prices, and as dinner for two with apps and drinks was always pricey, this evening was even more so! While I do love this restaurant and do recommend it, I am going to have to limit going there as it is now outside of my budget. Too bad. Maybe if they participate in Restaurant Week, I can go back sooner!
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening! The staff was so warm and friendly as well as professional. The food was delicious! The ambiance - perfect!
Solid lunch spot. A little pricey for portion sizes except for entrees which were good value... overall well prepared food and excellent service.,
Sam! Excellent service, attention to detail for a special event.
Best steak of my lifetime. Consistently exceptional.
Rude and poor service. Never once asked how the meal was—they must have known. A $60 fillet that was tough and flavorless and completely bland veggies. Food and service was terrible but I felt I had to tip 15% anyway—I heard them complaining about it. Probably best to stay away from Bobby Vans.
Great food, great service. Expensive but worth it.
Rib-eye was excellent. Sea bass not so much. Service was initially good, but lacking as the night went on.
Good food, terrible table location
Very welcoming, hosts were excellent - food, very good, but I'm not sure the value is there - premium prices, I've had better at other steak houses in town.
The food was on point as Always and my Server Mike Rushiti was phenomenal as Always too! Keep up the great work! A must Try!
Overall a very good experience. The staff is excellent and we loved the food. We had a superb bottle of 2012 Bordeaux from Margeaux. They have a great menu and wine list with a full bar as well. There’s a large number of seafood choices as well. It’s very noisy and the tables are a little tight. There are caricatures on the walls and has a classic steakhouse feel that’s not elegant but nice. It’s not too large so be sure to have reservations. We have been here a few times and will return.
Service could have been speedier. Staff was fairly solicitous but we had to get their attention for service.
Surprisingly bad steak. I expected a perfect piece of meat. Vegetables were only average.
Food was excellent but better still was our waiter, Sam, who had come in on his night off and made sure we were well looked after
Fantastic end to our mini break in New York
Wonderful! The staff as well as the food, amazing
Excellent experience with all the staff. Michael provides remarkable service. Other Open Table reviewers commented on him in the past- we were fortunate to get him as our waiter!
It was wonderful!
Very traditional steak house but just the noise level is a bit high
Great food great steaks
The waiter rushed to take order then disappeared.
Several requests of him were made all which he neglected and the request needed to be made a second time.
Wine was off. It happens. No hassle. Just replaced it.
Guest was late. No hassle. They did not make me feel like an orphan.
Best Lamb cutlets I have ever eaten
Michael was an excellent server. The food was exceptional
We had a wonderful meal at Bobby Van’s. We were not familiar with this restaurant but it was highly recommended. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. We loved the fact it was minutes from Grand Central. After a long day in the city it was nice being close to the train. I only get to the City a couple of times a year but this restaurant is worth a return trip.
Fantastic food and experience as always!!
Very noisy but good lunch
Lovely food and friendly people, although if your going cheap it’s not the place
Everything was outstanding! Food and service was fantastic! Very welcoming, would definitely go again...highly recommend
Food was great, but I asked waiter if they had Plymouth Gin for my martini and he insisted they did not, and then I saw a bottle of Plymouth at the bar on way out. Waiter never brought us water glasses or water until we asked. Not a good night for the restaurant.
We ordered appetizers and they seemed to come out 5 minutes after we ordered them. The apps were ok at best and seemed
Like they were heated up, not cooked while we were there. I ordered my sirloin steak medium rare and it was medium at best. The steak was lacking in flavor. I don’t think I would eat there again.
The food was ok. Way over priced for what it was.
Took my sister for her 70th birthday. I have been there many times, but this was her first visit. She loved it. Food was so excellent and the service was too.She thought it was excellent without being stuffy.Portions were very large - a potato feeds 2 people. Food came out hot.an overall great pick!
Excellent service and food, just what you expect
Excellent evening all around. Attentive wait staff, outstanding steaks and seafood, delicious cocktails. The energy is obvious upon entry. Don't miss it if you are in the area.
Love this place. Great steak, old school service.
