Bobby Van's Steakhouse - 809 15th Street NW
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.
Let's start with the dining room, which is nothing impressive, for this price point i was expecting something more than a pub atmosphere. My wife ordered lamb chops medium, they came raw. when we ask to have them done to medium, we got the response form our waiter " that's how the kitchen cooks them", wrong answer. he then says do i want my steak kept warm, while the lamb is being remade, i got the steak back cold, so much for that. I did complain to a manager, who comped us dessert, but the aggravation and annoyance were far greater than a free desert. Interesting the manger said he should have been alerted to a problem, by the wait staff, but had not been. So there is obviously a major breakdown in the service at this location......i would suggest, spending your money elsewhere.
Food, drinks and service was A1. Definitely can use some decor upgrades and ambiance facelift. Great for dates and dinner groups but not very romantic.
We like to visit steakhouses. This will not be on our list to return. There was good and bad but not what is expected for a fine steakhouse for the DC area.
Another outstanding meal at Bobby Vans. Service was excellent as usual and the food and wine always meets expectations.
I had a great time at Bobby's. Nelson our server was knowledgeable and gave great recommendations. Will definitely visit again when we are in DC.
Last of the nice evenings for outdoor dining. Food and service was spectacular as always
Good food with wonderful services. Prices are moderate but specials are available that make it worthwhile if not cheap. I go there several times a year so thumbs up!
Superb! Food was delicious
Valet never showed up therefore I self parked after waiting. Ordered my meat medium and although I ordered the Steak A La Stone which comes to the table pre sliced, the meat was rare. Any Chef or cook could and should have seen that. They took the meat back and put it under the broiler but the meat was ruined at that point. Extremely disappointed by these 2 incidents. I should’ve asked for another steak altogether but when you’re hungry the choice becomes mute. Is this still a top of the line steak house or has the restaurants standards diminished to the level of Sizzlers?
Usual very good food and service. Value for money
We enjoyed everything we ate fro bread and butter to dessert. We were treated like vips from our server Rod. He was awesome! I would go back for him because he was so attentive and nice. Our overall experience was much better than I would have predicted.
Ribeye steak and whole Maine lobster...excellently prepared.
Outstanding service! Will come back again and again!
