Ordered lamb chops as an appetizer and that they were. They were quite small. Ordered blue cheese Brussel sprouts without bacon and the blue cheese definitely overpowered the sprouts. The macaroni and cheese was pretty good as well as the scallops. We ordered surf and turf and the lobster was over cooked. Friends of ours were in town on this trip and wanted to try a crab cake, needless to say it wasn’t what she expected. The crab cake was dry.

I had a reservation however didn’t get seated until 25 mins later. The host kept seating others that were in line behind me, and when I’d inquire he’d say “what’s your name again”.
By the time we were finally seated, there was no server for 20 mins, while we didn’t even have water offered. The appetizers were good, the downfall was our entree order wasn’t taken until minutes before closing. I won’t be returning. The service was not to standard

Patricia and Roberto were just amazing. They were attentive, polite, knowledgeable about the menu and the restaurant. I loved hearing about the specials for the evening. They were smiling the entire time and were so friendly. We ordered the Ribeye, the Chicken Parmigian, the Shrimp Fettucini, the Salmon, prosciutto macaroni and cheese, creamed Spinach, and a Caesar salad. I ordered a Hennessey Sidecar, which was delicious 😋 and made well. When our food was served, it looked so good and smelled incredible. My ribeye was delightful a tad bit under for medium-well and more fatty than my usual ribeye. For 65.00, I was sure that while it was good-it was worth it. I shared it with my son who prefers his steaks medium. My husband's salmon was undercooked and had to be sent back. The Fettucini was slightly dry but well seasoned and loaded with large shrimp and waaaay too many mushrooms. The chicken parm could have had some veggies in it. But it was good for my youngest. Overall, the food was okay, not as superb as I thought it would be. Just being together made up for it. I was using a Groupon for a PRIX FIXED for 4 dinner. I didn't know to let Roberto know we were using it. However, management allowed us to use it because the food we ordered was actually featured on the "Prix Fixed" menu which we weren't aware of. I paid an upcharge for the ribeye and we were able to close out with a few desserts. We would go back but maybe just date night. Thank you so much to the wonderful staff of BOBBY VAN'S for making our family night out memorable. ❤

The server was very nice, however the food was not that great. There was a little menu which was decent, however it didn’t give non steak eaters much of an option. Being from the DMV area crab cakes are a huge favorite of mine, however when you add green peppers it just is not right. As expensive as the dinner was, we were all a little upset to leave being hungry. Maybe we caught them on a bad day, but I will say this was not one of my best dinning experiences.

It was our first time (group of 5) to this Bobby Van's location and we found it met our expectations. For the price and ambience, we expected outstanding service and definitely received it from all of the staff. Our servers were professional, knowledgable, and helpful. The food was outstanding! I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I look forward to returning again very soon.

The most I ever spent on the blandest food. The mashed potatoes had absolutely no seasoning. The steak tasted like bark.

We had delicious steaks and seafood with their limited menu. Service was excellent and the four of us did not feel rushed. The 50% off bottled wine on Saturdays is a great deal. And, there’s no better bartender than Kevin.

Steak had no flavor... mash potatoes not seasoned. Mac and cheese was good. Waiter was courteous but didn’t really know the menu. Menu is limited at this time . Ambience was just off wasn’t terrible but not worth the “high end” prices
