Bobby Van's Steakhouse - 54th Street
Best steak ever. To awake is a must. Perfect service. Nice atmosphere
The restaurant was very nice but very loud. Good service and good food.
The managers Josh and Dan went out of their way to make sure service was perfect. I appreciated the hospitality and quality of food.
We loved the steak! 🥩 😋 And the table service was lovely for Xmas eve.
Very good food but poor service. Inattentive server, poor wine steward and even forgot special occasion even though they were reminded twice. Tried bringing a piece of cake while we were putting our coats on. Go to S&W’s instead.
I brought my family there that was vacationing from Ireland as this is my go to spot at all times. Irish people are meat lovers but for the first time ever, the service was not up to par. I have often had this waiter who is fantastic but we had to ask for bread and we were nearly finished when the Mac and cheese came out. Also, the bill could have been a lot higher due to the fact that he was lifting glasses and not asking if they wanted another drink. Like I said, very unusual. Food amazing as always.
Food was delicious, French onion soup and house salad as apps were great. The porterhouse for 2 was delicious as well, though it was ordered medium rare was slightly more medium than medium rare.
Overall, a great evening out
Superb service and food out of this world!
Victor was amazing.!!!!
Juri, my server is the most professional and considerate server I have ever had at any restaurant
typically never care about noise.. but had to shout entire time
Looking for a steak house in Manhattan, I was able to get a reservation at Bobby Van's and was delighted. Food was great, service was great. Would definitely go there again.
It was a perfect spot to host a birthday lunch for 8. Guests were very pleased with their selections and the staff was super attentive and very nice. Will definitely return.
Greeted as soon as we entered the building. Hostess was very friendly. Once we sat down the waiter was introducing himself to our table within seconds. Waiter seemed very professional, all properly dressed in uniform (which was old school style) and had knowledge of the entire menu. We asked about some wine and when he didn't totally know the answer he didn't beat around the bush like he knew he admitted he didn't and he would go ask the bartender, 2 minutes later he was back with the answer. We participated in the dinner for two for $115. Wonderful decision. The deal has its own menu and it consisted of an appetizer, entree +2 sides and a desert. I ordered the Tomato and Mozzarella appetizer, Filet Mignon with french fries as the entree and Brownie A LaMode as dessert. The deal also includes a bottle of wine which we definitely took advantage of. I'm not very good at writing reviews and I tend to ramble but overall my experience was excellent here tonight. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, food was delicious, wine was very tasty and for a steakhouse in Manhattan you can't beat the the price should you decide to do the dinner for two menu. Based off of my one experience here I'd definitely recommend it.
Possibly the nicest meal I’ve ever had. Food was just delicious and the service was brilliant. Staff went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed the meal. Restaurant wasn’t noisy so we was able to relax and enjoy the food and have a conversation over dinner. Will definitely go back.
It was ok nothing special
We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel during our recent visit to NYC. It was only 1 block away which seemed perfect. I booked online through opentable for 7.30. We arrived at the set time only to see a note on the door saying that the restaurant was closed for a private function! We went in and said we had a booking, to which we were told by a very unhelpful assistant that they were closed and that they had tried to contact us, but hadn’t been able to as our mobile phone number was a UK number!! Seriously?! Come on guys, what sort of people are you employing that can’t work out how to dial a UK phone number??
Needles to say we were extremely disappointed and frustrated. We had actually gotten engaged that day so were looking to celebrate, and this completely ruined the experience for us!
Would not recommend and wouldn’t go back- ever!
We had burgers- fantastic juicy burgers with all the trimmings. Enjoyed it. Not steak, but not the cost of steak either.
We hosted a business dinner and had stellar service in a beautiful room. Our servers were beyond attentive. The food was spectacular. Everything was fresh, hot and perfectly prepared. Dinner choices were all over the menu and there were all smiles around the table. The favs of the group were the Porterhouses and the Sea Bass. Then came dessert! We did samplers to share with our group of 14. All of the desserts were incredible. Wine list is outstanding with choices for all budgets. The Old Fashioned were excellent. The pacing on dinner was perfect. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
service understaffed or overtired - waited for more than 20 minutes for a check at lunch
Terrible food! My wife and I both ordered filets, her’s was over cooked and mine was half fat/grizzle. The brownie for desert was more like a cake.
Bobby vans was a bit undesirable. When we first walked it, we noticed that the rug and floor looked dirty. Also, took about 10 minutes for us to be acknowledged and the restaurant was not busy. Food was ok, however porterhouse had way to much fat on it. Prices seemed capatable with other steakhouses, however we did notice the other tables received special prefix menus that we were not offered. Service was fine, but again nothing spectacular
Terrific restaurant. Excellent service. Priced fairly for food choices but over the top beverage prices.
Delicious food and EXCELLENT, attentive service.we had a wonderful experience.
They always please at E. 54th St. The managers Dan and Josh are first class. Tom and his crew at the bar are the best. The wait staff is very attentive. The steaks are always coked to perfection. A consistent winner.
Great steaks! Great service! Great wine list! I can't wait to go back !!!
Place was excellent. Our host General Manager Danny was amazing. It was my bday dinner and they went above and beyond to service us.
The food and the service was wonderful words cannot describe how great this place was.
Louis the waiter was great. It’s a great traditional steak house.
The food and service was excellent, but the price of cocktails is ridiculous! $24 for a Manhattan is out of line.
Excellent food and service, as always. Great staff and atmosphere.
“The Guy” seating people was obnoxious and arrogant. And boy was he dumb! Not quite sure how he got this job, no less keeps it. Avoid this place like the plague. High prices should mean quality food and good service at a minimum. Not here.
First time there. Very enjoyable
Standard high end steak house. Way too loud. Wine list was small but fairly priced. Plan on 100 person plus drinks.
Food is ok. Price is about right. Service is a bit cold
We visited Bobby Van's for a leisurely lunch following a Ladies Spa morning. We were delighted with our service and our meals. The prix fixe lunch menu was outstanding - surprisingly reasonable and a great selection. Our waiter was super - very attentive and informative. If you go for lunch, you must order the mashed potatoes - best we have ever eaten anywhere!!
average food considering the steakhouse prices, nothing to write home about. Service is sporadic. Side dish portions are large.
Guest in town.
Everything thing was fabulous other than the $21 drink price. ( Ordered a cosmopolitan on a whim ) they did not have a cocktail menu and the server took a long time to bring our check so minused a star for that
The tuna Tatar was amazing app large portion as well as the salad. The filet mignon and salmon were cooked well
And they sang happy birthday for my both as requested
We will be returning :)
Was a wonderful experience and very quiet !
The food was wonderful, the atmosphere was very calm and quiet. I was impressed by the food and the setting. Great ambiance.
However, I was NOT impressed by the service provided. I made very specific requests in my reservation which were 1000% ignored. The "owner/manager" didn't seem to care, the hostess was somewhat flippant and the wait staff were not coordinated. The restaurant was meant to be participating in restaurant week, but the servers were not aware of what the event seemed to entailed - they just did their own thing.
Though I would recommend this place for the food, it would only be to those individuals that do not care about outstanding service.
