Steakhouse
"At Bobby Vans 54th Street, you can expect the same great service and the same great food as our other restaurants. Tucked away in another historic restaurant location, (at one time this was the hang out spot for such stars as Frank Sinatra and the rest of the Rat Pack) there is plenty of history and untold stories behind these walls, if only they could talk. Conveniently located just east of Park Avenue and 4 blocks north of The Waldorf-Astoria, this is where you want to be. As you walk into the restaurant you’re greeted by our hosts and a large credenza filled with beautiful bottles of wine. Glancing to your left you overlook the spacious yet always occupied bar, where the bartenders know your name and have your drink waiting for you before you can even say hello. Separating the bar from the dining room is a glass window so you can see all the action of other diners enjoying their meals. The dining room has the good old fashioned steakhouse style with handcrafted wood walls, and F

    Everything was great! Our waiter was Steve; he was very attentive as well as the other two that assisted. First time a a real steakhouse and it was a very wonderful experience. The person at the front greeted us and was very personable and pleasant. Would dine there again.

    Food was mediocre at best. There were two drunk men, clearly over-served, who had to be escorted out (almost broke into a fight), and the entire place was like a scene from the 50s. A ton of middle-aged white men overcrowding the bar. We counted 5 women in the whole place! It was one of the most bizarre scenes for NYC.

From the impeccable service to the tantalizing array of dishes, every aspect of the dining experience here surpasses expectations, making it an enduring favorite of mine.

    We had a 5:30 dinner on a Saturday. Almost no one else in the place until we left close to 8pm. we had the dinner for two special at $150 including bottle of wine. The wine and food were all delish. Service was super attentive, yet not intrusive. My ONLY complaint? Welcome to my first $24 martini!! Holy smokes.

    Received a call from the manager Dan and he provided some great table options before we showed up since we wanted something good for 12 people where we could talk. He came over and asked how everything was when we got there. Highly recommend. Great service and great food for a company celebration.

    We started with an order of bake clams oregano, which were very good and then we had the Barada and tomato salad, which also was very good and then is an entrée. We did the short ribs with risotto, which was also very good. The problem was with the cocktails the two of us ordered Angels and the old fashions the server brought over our drinks and we looked at them as though they were clear liquid. Then we tasted them and it taste like a Shirley Temple. It was nothing but sweet, clear liquid. We both looked at each other at the same exact time, and couldn’t believe what we were tasting , we told our lovely waitress that these drinks need alcohol. The bartender comes over with two extra shots with an attitude saying he put two shots in the original glasses and here are additional two more shots, which then it finally tasted like an old fashion so long story short dinner was good Drinks extremely disappointing what I go back I don’t think so. Too many other good steakhouses in Manhattan. I hope this review helps you.

    Went for my birthday dinner. I ordered the 10oz filet which was 7-8 oz max but cooked perfectly. The creamed spinach was like baby food. My son got the chicken Parmesan, which was delicious. The accompanying spaghetti was overcooked . Never offered fresh cracked pepper for our Cesar salads. Noticed other tables service was a different level that we did not receive. How does a steakhouse not have Cabernet wine ? The manager yelled over our table to another staff member regarding setting a table up. Not the ambiance I was expecting.

    Absolutely perfect experience from the moment we walked in. The coat check option was a welcome blast from the past and very classy. The service was friendly and humorous and our server was informative and pleasant. We especially appreciated our server speaking directly to our young child, who often notices that grown ups ignore kids. The food was perfectly prepared and each dish tasted excellent. This restaurant will be a stop on every trip to New York.

    The restaurant is styled as a traditional steak house. Wait staff is dressed formally and is attentive to customers. Our particular table was set up in an active walkway which resulted in being bumped by customers, wait staff and food trays passing by. The food was delicious, the steak was seared perfectly and our service was exceptional.
