Bobby Van's Steakhouse - 809 15th Street NW
Yummy yummy in my tummy
The food, service and ambiance were fantastic. We always enjoy coming to Bobby Van’s. The wait staff is the best!!
Perfect way to have dinner with friends. service and food were outstanding. would return in a heartbeat.
I've dined here at least a half-dozen times over the last few years, and have been satisfied every time. My only quibble with this particular experience is that 1) the bar was full and noisy, and 2) a table of six near us was also noisy. I chalk both of these up to the holiday season. We will certainly return.
All the ambiance you'd ever want in a classic steakhouse, with great steaks (and delicious sea bass), wonderful starters, awesome cocktails, and it was all served to us by the most enjoyable waiter (named Rodney) that we've had in eons. The opposite of arrogant and snooty, this place is fantastic and much less expensive than many other DC chophouses.
We had an incredible dinner of french onion soup, salad, filet mignon and strawberry cheesecake that was absolutely outstanding! The service was excellent - would highly recommend Bobby Van's Steakhouse!
Food was VERY salty. WAY too much salt. Steak was both undercooked and dry on outside. How do you even do that? Slow service on a slow night. Didn’t get dinner wine until half was done dinner. Mac and cheese was good. Only good thing I can say. (WAY TOO MUCH SALT. TASTED LIKE THEY DUMPED SALT ON SALMON AND STEAK.)
No one better than our waiter mike. Professional, courteous, and overall exceptional.
We had a living social coupon for a 3 course meal for 2 for $99. The food was delicious. We also ordered drinks that were amazing as well, the Washington Apple and the Golden Margarita. Would recommend to others.
Food was good but not spectacular. Waiter was hard to understand. Traditional steakhouse atmosphere with quiet sound level. We had a nice evening.
Please note that that best part of the lunch was our waiter, Rod, who was excellent!! WONDERFUL PERSON & GREAT SERVICE!!
Great food great service...and an excellent wine list!
My steak was AMAZING!!
Great meal and outstanding service. Highly recommend Chilean sea bass.
Food was amazing, no long wait and service was professional and informative with the specials. Will go back up again.
Excellent food, excellent service, this restaurant is a great choice for any meal or meeting.
Great food and service!
A menu update is in order. Plant based options are a requirement in DC, and there are none on the menu. You need to special request everything. Update and stick around, don’t and die off.
Had a great time. Loved the food and the environment. Definitely pricey but some of the best steak I’ve ever tasted. Def recommend for a start to a good night out
Linguini with clams at a steakhouse? Outstanding!
Sautéed spinach and tomato and onion salad were terrific but not that the onion packs a punch.
Best Ribeye Oscar I have ever had. The service was very good and attentive.
Adan provided great service and recommendations. The food was great and didn’t feel rushed even at the end of lunch. Welcome staff was also very courteous. Will definitely be back!
Alwsys great place for steak
The food and service were excellent. We will return!
loved our waiter!!!
This small chain of steakhouses is similar to Morton’s. We were there on a very quiet night and the food and service were excellent. Steak and seafood were cooked perfectly with quality pieces of meat. Our server was great too and very knowledgeable about the wine list. Price was on the high side, but portions were large and everything was spot on.
This is the best steakhouse in DC! I’ve never had a bad steak here. Can’t say that for their competition.
Bobby Van's was awesome. My wife and I were in DC for a vacation and decided to try it out for our anniversary dinner. It did not disappoint! The service was awesome from the beginning. The shrimp cocktail, filets, mashed potatoes, mac n'cheese, and cheesecakes could not have been better. The sides are actually shareable, so we were able to split them between us. We would definitely go back if/when we visit DC again!
Took my wife here for her Birthday. The food lacked taste, the service was horrible, my wife did not enjoy herself. The worst. I'm over it. I'm drained. This place sucked
My (now) fiancée and I had eaten at the other location in DC about 6 years ago and still talked about that experience. This visit just didn’t live up to the memory, nor to comparisons with other top tier steak houses we frequent. There was nothing specifically wrong really, it was an enjoyable evening and the food was good, but it wasn’t exceptional.
Celebrated my wife’s birthday at Bobby Vans - excellent food and service. Would highly recommend.
Introducing folks to the Bobby Van experience is always a delight. The "NYC-style steak house" is a big draw. The waitstaff, who are so professional, always charm the newcomers. And the food offerings (lobster presented in a most attractive manner; escargot prepared perfectly with enough slices of bread to soak up the delicious butter, and shrimp abundant enough to share -- these are just the appetizers!) appeal to everyone. The entrees likewise are perfectly prepared -- steak that is medium rare, warm center with succulent juices, with sides that may be shared (my favorite is the asparagus). My husband and I celebrate at Bobby Van's for most of our occasions and enjoy bringing others to share in the delight.
The service was excellent. Our server, Rod Grigsby made sure that we were completely satisfy. This was our first time there and it was our anniversary, he made it special for us. The food came on time and the was hot. We will be returning with our family.
Rod was our server & he was very sweet. Our food arrived in a timely manner and was delicious. Rod ensure that our glasses remained full. We had a good time chatting with Rod. He was a delight
The food was all great. We had a Groupon for two three-course meals for $99. We split the Caesar salad and shrimp cocktail for apps, salmon and a medium petite filet as entrees along with sides of green beans and prosciutto mac & cheese, and then chocolate cake and cheesecake for dessert. Everything was excellent and washed down nicely with a couple glasses of very nice red wine. Hard to get food this good at the price we paid.
The food was perfectly prepared and the service was excellent! The indoor climate was very well controlled. Overall a wonderful experience! I will visit again!
Outstanding food and exceptional service. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was good but you can pay almost the same price for great at other dc spots.
The food was great and the service was even better. We were seated on the patio and couldn’t for a better experience!
Will definitely return when I’m back in D.C.
