LOVE LOVE this place...
Staff was amazing
Food was great --- I had the chicken kale and spinach salad -- scrumptious!!!!. Other meals were the salmon salad, and fish and chip - the best I have ever tasted.
Must have reservation or dine on the patio.

The shrimp was a bit over cooked to be so expensive. =(

We purchased a bottle of wine and it was fantastic. The crab cake appetizer was great as well. Service was a little slow but we weren't in a rush. Ordered the meal for two which was a 3lb rib eye and 2 lbs of lobster with a side of mashed potatoes and two sides of bearnaise. Ordered the steak medium bc I had to compromise with my husband who likes it barely pink. I can eat med rare. This steak was practically raw. As in, the outside was barely brown and the middle was purple. I HATE sending things back because it feels so high maintenance, but the entree alone was $180 so I wanted to be able to eat it. The mashed potatoes were mealy, maybe they were instant? And the bearnaise sauce was terrible. It was like a pudding on top and watery underneath. Cheesecake for dessert was great. Way better places in this area to eat for the same amount of money or less.

We go to this restaurant for our yearly family dinner for Valentine's Day. It has always been amazing. The wait staff was very attentive and we never had to wait for anything. The food is so yummy and plentiful. Usually, expensive restaurants have tiny portions, but Bobby Van's isn't like that at all. The sides are "family" size and are good for 2-3 people. The cocktails are wonderful too. They also have an extensive wine selection that you can buy by the glass or bottle. Also, they frequently have Groupons so that is a plus as well.

The service is bad although I still paid the tip. They gave me a cold face and words all the evening. No introduction and recommendation, even answer to your questions.
