Despite the cautiousness that everyone has about eating indoors at restaurants, Bobby Van's Park Avenue was as excellent as always ... We sat in a private nook area away from other diners and all of the staff wore face masks. The Caesar Salad and lump crab meat cocktail were exceptional, as was the porterhouse steak medium rare. Broccoli with garlic ... and then coffee, dessert, just like in the old days. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Drinks were very expensive!!!!
Great before Covid-19 and still great today! Socially distanced seating, a nice menu, great wines and the most pleasant waiters and staff. Great steaks and surprisingly good Italian dishes.
Due to Covid there were not alot of people there.
Therefore the staff was super attentive for the customers
that were their.
This place has to make it through. Go there. Now
Bobby's Van's continues to provide amazing food, caring/professional service and a warm/inviting atmosphere. It's an iconic NYC restaurant and I hope they can struggle though these draconian requirements. Its very rough.
Always great food and amazing service.
Best Steaks 🥩 in NYC. The owner Ricky is a fabulous host. Love Bobby Vans
Commercial, old school, meat is OK but not great. Overpriced. They're going to chain levels and not close to excellence. You just pay their rent in park Avenue at grand central.
Another great experience at BVs from Manager Pat Brennan to Martha made for a great client/Friday afternoon lunch
De authentieke sfeer en de gastvrijheid van deze typisch Amerikaanse zaak zijn geweldig. We waren het niet van plan maar uiteindelijk hebben we aan de bar gegeten met de locals. Tony was de gastheer achter de bar en die deed het geweldig. De prijs is op zijn New Yorks zullen we maar zeggen.
Best rib eye around and once they burn burn burn the home fries....spectacular
Bobby Van is one of my favorite for many years. This time I tried the Park Avenue location and was disapointed. Steaks are great, no complains. This is what I expect in a Steak House. I ordered Tomato and Onions (both sliced 1cm thick, who can eat onions like that). As a side I had beans which arrived nearly cold. I was there on my own and they only have large bottle of water (1 liter). Service was friendly. Will not go there again.
love the food and the owner Ricky is amazing! always makes people feel wanted and special
Pretty good place to take family fir dinner. Kids friendly
This is the best steak house in NY. Food = amazing. Staff is on the money and congenial to boot.
Perfect experience for us. Everything is perfect. Not so noisy and every meal served nice timing with great taste.
Excellent food and service. Made us feel at home.
Five star service and food. The staff here is amazing and makes sure everything is made to perfection. For a steakhouse where the steaks are amazing, the chicken parm and shrimp fradiavlo is simply outstanding. This is the place to go with co-workers, business lunch/dinners and with the family. A true true NY experience. As a life long NY’r this is by far the best true NY Steakhouse!!!!
Service was outstanding
Bobby Van's is the quintessential NY steakhouse. The porterhouse steak for 2, creamed spinach with potatoes is a classic. Couple that with a wonderful Cab and your evening is complete!
Love Bobby Vans
As usual, Bobby Van’s food was excellent and staff ensured that we were well served and had an excellent table
Our first dining experience here and would recommend it to all. Pleasant staff, great food and quiet for conversation. A great place.
Awesome! Great experience. Definitely will go back!
Swordfish was cooked perfectly and the service was great as always.
Always a good meal at Bobby Vans with the family.
Everything was great except our waiter left before he dropped our bill..
Expensive But Great Food . Food came quickly as good service.
Steaks did not taste as good as S&W steaks.
Food and staff were excellent! Will make this my go-to steakhouse in NYC!
Great from the start to finish. Greeted by a wonderful woman who takes your coat and gives you a ticket. Small bar nearby while waiting for your table, table is ready before your drinks are done and food is great
Food was uninspired, even for a steakhouse, which only has to serve the staples. Service was rushed. I asked for a wine by the glass list and the waiter asked "red or white?". Hesitantly I said "red" and he rattled off "a cab from California, a pino from Oregon or a malbec from Argintina". That tells me nothing. I want to see which wineries, from what specific regions, etc. It was clear in the interest of rushing me through my meal, the waiter was refusing to take the time to walk back and get me a wine by the glass list. Likewise, I expect a place like this to provide a liquor list. Anyone paying top dollar for a great steak has a preference of specific liquors, for example Mitchners Rye or Blantons Bourbon. I am not impressed with nor appreciate his list from memory. Note, I eat at my local Ruth's Chris at least once a month and receive far superior service there.
60th anniversary!! The staff was incredibly kind and generous, really made a memorable celebration for us!
Lovely restaurant, food was excellent. Portions are huge! Service was prompt and polite
The food was lukewarm temperature. The table we were given was jammed in tight by the kitchen so we constantly had people walking by us jamming into our chairs. The food and experience was not worth its value.
Patty Brennan provides the single best restaurant experience for an important gathering in NYC.
Very nice holiday lunch with my Aussie buddy! Great service and food.
The scallops were phenomenal, some of the best in the City! The chicken parmigiana was as good as any Italian restaurant! Service by our waiter Mike was outstanding as always a pleasure to frequent this great establishment!
Classic traditional steakhouse with a warm welcome. Formula still works well after all these years and they work hard to maintain standards.
