Bobby Van's Steakhouse - 54th Street
Amazing steakhouse quality. A bit loud in the actual restaurant but staff is extremely accommodating and kind. Food quality is amazing. Porterhouse steak is THE BEST in the city. Or it’s not... I’d rather no one hit up my favorite spot!
Great place for my birthday dinner on our last night in NYC. The T-Bone was really good and my date really like the filet. I highly recommend.
$110 porterhouse for 2 a huge disappointment. Burnt on one end too rare on the other. Must be the JV versions of the original. Have had far better at other locations.
I have eaten at steak houses all over the city and all buroughs. This is my new favorite. The food was amazing-- we had the dry aged porterhouse. But eating is not just about the food it is also about the experience. I brough my parents, in their mid eighties. I felt like the staff were taking care of their own parents. From the maitre'd, to the bus boys, to our fabulous , lovely and patient server. Thank you so much for that.
I cant wait to go back.
I have been going to Bobby Van’s for a number of years. Most consistently outstanding restaurant I go to. They take care of all customers as long-standing regulars. Most restaurants do not. Thank you to everyone that works tirelessly at BV’s for their customers.
We made a reservation on Wednesday prior to Memorial Day weekend. I even called to check if they were open and was advised they were. On Saturday 3 hours prior to reservation I received a call advising they were closed all weekend. This left us out in the cold with no table and many places with no availability. Fortunately we discovered 2 new steak houses and will be making them our first choices, Benjamin Steakhouse Prime and Empire Steakhouse
Had a great meal . Steak was cooked perfect and our waiter was excellent.
The staff was attentive and great. The steak was raw and not very good
Mother’s Day dinner was cooked well.
A fantastic deal for two for a special night out.
Steak was cooked to desired temperature and a generous portion, though a bit salty.
Creamed spinach and mashed potatoes were great compliments.
Caesar salad dressing was memorable and the veal meatballs were tender with a flavorful sauce.
The sorbet and brownie were enjoyable, but not on the same level as the rest of the meal.
Come hungry and leave full of tasty food and more than a fair share of wine
Excellent food and great service for business lunch. Great environment and not too noisy like some steakhouses can get
Always great food and excellent attentive but not overwhelming service
The price is too high for the quality of the food.
We went to enjoy a promo that happens weekend evenings. We went last year for the same promo and enjoyed it very much. When we came last time we enjoyed a bottle of bubbly without additional charge, now they wanted a $10 upcharge. Not an auspicious start. Last year a baked potato was included, this year a $10 upcharge yet again. When the food came (filet mignon and salmon) both were overcooked despite having told the waiter medium rare. Overall, not a great experience.
Love the $125 deal on Friday and Saturday nights at the 54th st location
Nice place, warmly welcomed and seated immediately. Service was good, they were attentive and brought the food out timely. Never ate here before so I wasn’t sure what to expect ambiance wise so it was ok. I recommended it to my colleagues.
Always terrific service and food.
Dan, Josh and Yuri make sure!
Classic NY steak house with great food and service.
We came here on the advice of a colleague while we were visiting NY this past weekend. It was a Friday night and only 4 tables had diners while many more sat empty all night. There were some younger people at the bar for quite a long time. We ordered salads - mixed field greens which were just mediocre. I then ordered the grouper special while my husband ordered the bone-in Rib Eye. My fish was pretty bland and not as good as grouper I’ve had at many other restaurants. My husband ordered his steak medium rare, and it was definitely medium. The waiter did not stop over to ask if the steak was prepared correctly. We shared a baked potato and asparagus which were just typical. Overall our food was mediocre, the ambiance is a bit old and stake, and the waiter was ok. For what we spent for dinner, I’d rather eat at a nice streak house like Ruths’s Chris.
MUCH too noisy. The food and service were excellent but the noise level was like a jackhammer and concrete saw together, and I won’t go back.
Very knowledgeable and helpful service and the Porterhouse lived up to every expectation. Perfectly cooked and delicious! Great wine selection but a tad pricey!
Good food by too expensive for what it is.
From the time you entered the door you are greeted by a friendly, warm smile. The staff was great, the food was amazing. Overall great experience, would go back again.
My favorite place in the world to eat!

New York City
We went to the wrong one by mistake. But we had great time and loved the food!!
Last minute decision when we messed up on another reservation. The steaks were wonderful and cooked to perfection. Service was perfect and attentive. Very nice wine list as well. Don’t hesitate to drop in for the filet it was the best bernaise sauce I have ever had hands down.
We had a fantastic evening and fantastic food. Would highly recommend
Excellent meal. Went with a couple of colleagues and all enjoyed huge steaks and good wine.
We had a wonderful experience during our visit to Bobby Van’s Steakhouse. Food was exceptional, service was impeccable and the overall experience was outstanding. We were there celebrating a birthday and he really appreciated the experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
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.
