Steakhouse
Located in New York's landmark Helmsley Building, Bobby Van's Steakhouse has been serving the best porterhouse in town for the last eleven years. Upon entering, one is greeted with the sight of a credenza groaning under the weight of large bottles of wine. A bar full of regular customers is on the left and looking into the one-hundred seat dining room, one sees the thirty foot high ceiling and windows overlooking Park Avenue. To complement our Prime Aged Steaks our Sommelier has created an award winning wine list. Whether you're looking for a big Cabernet, a Pinot Noir or something in between our comprehensive list is sure to please. "

    First time back since NYC ended the vaccine passport mandate. So glad to return. The food is as good as ever, the service is impeccable, and it's the same classic experience as I had before the pandemic.

    One of my favorites in NYC. Everything is always good but what keeps me coming back is Patrick. Patrick is always energetic and makes you feel like family. Patrick is absolutely the best. As long as Patrick is at BV I will be back as often as I can.

    We were hounded to order by several waiters when we first got there. We couldn’t tell who our waiter was. A few large parties came in and we were suddenly ignored and treated rudely. The noise level was not “energetic,” it was almost unbearable. Wedge salad did not have any blue cheese crumbles at all. Too many onion strings and few bacon pieces. Overall worst wedge I’ve had in a restaurant of that caliber. Will not return!

    Waiters were fabulous, the food was delicious, my drink wasn’t watered. The only thing that could have made it better would’ve been knowing that Trump had permanently lost his voice and penchant for lying every minute of every day.

    Dinner for 2. The sirloin steak was top notch, best part of the meal, hash brown side had some burnt spots, shrimp cocktail good nothing spectacular, good cocktails, limited choice of wine by the glass, the single Cab available was very good, nice wine list. Waiter was excellent.

    We had the best experience at Bobby Van’s! Our waiter, Paul, made our meal so memorable by offering outstanding menu suggestions, being incredibly attentive despite a packed restaurant, and keeping us entertained with his delightful personality. The meal was spot on: great wine, oysters on the half shell (incredible), Caesar salad, the porterhouse for two (wow!), sautéed mushrooms, cheesecake and after dinner drinks to top it off. We will definitely be back!
