"At Bobby Vans 54th Street, you can expect the same great service and the same great food as our other restaurants. Tucked away in another historic restaurant location, (at one time this was the hang out spot for such stars as Frank Sinatra and the rest of the Rat Pack) there is plenty of history and untold stories behind these walls, if only they could talk. Conveniently located just east of Park Avenue and 4 blocks north of The Waldorf-Astoria, this is where you want to be. As you walk into the restaurant you’re greeted by our hosts and a large credenza filled with beautiful bottles of wine. Glancing to your left you overlook the spacious yet always occupied bar, where the bartenders know your name and have your drink waiting for you before you can even say hello. Separating the bar from the dining room is a glass window so you can see all the action of other diners enjoying their meals. The dining room has the good old fashioned steakhouse style with handcrafted wood walls, and F

    My experience was very nice, with one exception. I had booked the prix fix three-course special and the server did not initially offer that menu up. We received it only when we requested it. I understand that times are tough, but a restaurant should stand by its advertised specials and provide that option to you without specifically requesting it from the wait staff. With that said the $49 prix fixe is quite the bargain for NYC. But the minute you start boozing it up and ordering additional sides, you’re quickly back up in the stratosphere.

    The restaurant was closed and yet we were able to make a reservation on Open Table. The restaurant’s website didn’t indicate that it was closed either and we were left to figure out a new plan last minute. This defeats the whole point of making a reservation.

    Overall the experience was good. The food, drinks and service all good. The only complaint I had was my table location which is just a personal preference. We will definitely go back but will try a different location just to compare them.

    The waiters are professionals. Attentive, a wide variety of wine, liquor & any alcohol beverage. They know their menu perfectly, assist you on how you would like to prepare your food. They let me & my girlfriend split our meal into two so we got to try each others food without having to touch each others plates. Freaking amazing, they also had those 12 seated chair for private occasion looked like some “ The Godfather “ scene man. 11/10 incredible.

    The staff was absolutely amazing. We had one guest that had a mobile scooter and the effort that the staff put in to accommodate her was above and beyond. All of the food and drinks tasted great and were all cooked to perfection. Servers were attentive and very friendly. Dining room and bar were spotless and the decor was well done. I wish I could give more than 5 stars, would highly recommend this place. Will be coming back.

    Bobby’s is a beautiful restaurant. We arrived a little early but were seated right away. Ben was our server, we did have a large group with some people that have not had an opportunity to eat at a nice restaurant, Ben appeared to be losing his patience with some of us. Drinks and desserts were forgotten. The food is absolutely delicious. We do plan on visiting this location again. Maybe a smaller group.

    Hello Carolyn, I want to let you know we appreciate the feedback, both the negatives and the positives. This allows us to reflect on your experience and I will communicate with my staff regarding communication with our guests, no matter what the age, should never be any confrontation. I am glad you enjoyed the food and ambiance, and please call me the next time you want to come in, and I will make sure it will be 6 out of 5 stars. Daneil Anson General Manager 212.207.8050
