Description: Bobby Van's Steakhouse New York, located at 54th Street, is notable for its prime selection of superior steaks, distinctly excellent chops and incomparable seafood selection, invites you to enjoy the warm hospitality and quality fare that the traditional American steakhouses of New York are known for. Situated in a building once frequented by Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, this is the quintessential place for the "steakhouse, New York" experience. With its richly handcrafted wood walls and well-stocked bar, Bobby Van's Steakhouse offers both private and conventional seating. Diners can enjoy the outstanding and award winning wine list, which is personally selected by Bobby Van's own sommelier, and won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence in 2005. In terms of cuisine, Lunch patrons would be hard-pressed not to enjoy our famed Marinated Skirt Steak, served on a bed of arugula salad, or our equally popular Colossal Crabcake B.L.T. As for our Dinner menu, where guests can find culinary pleasure in a varied number of highly satisfying selections, the Classic Surf & Turf has never failed to please, nor has our favorite form of filet mignon, the Filer Oscar, which is served with a healthy amount of crabmeat and a topping of Hollandaise sauce. No matter what your style or preference, we pledge that your visit with us will prove nothing short of above-adequate. Bobby Van's Steakhouse New York is open seven days a week for dinner, and on weekdays for lunch. We are conveniently located a few blocks north of the Waldorf-Astoria, and within close walking distance of the Intercontinental Hotel, Marriott Eastside, Radisson and the Benjamin Hotel, as well as are near parking and public transit.

We had a corporate meeting here, and all went well.
Service attentive, they put together a square table for 16 which was needed, and easily managed it. Food was great. Highly recommended

“Steaks are great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

A well rounded menu of steak, seafood and pasta. I had the filet mignon special and french onion soup. Both did not disappoint. They have a 3lb sirloin steak that you have to see to believe! Servers were very attentive and the restaurant had a nice ambiance. I would eat here again.

“First class !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

My wife and I enjoyed a meal here for my 50th birthday,the place was recommended to us by a guy we met in the Baker st pub, what a recommendation it turned out to be, everything about this place oozes class, ok it's expensive, but the service was first class, I had the ribeye steak and my wife opted for the sirloin,both steaks were out of this world,as were the fries and onion rings,we opted for carrot cake for desert which turned out to be the most moist I've ever tasted,really couldn't fault the place!

“No hand towels?!?!?!?!?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

I went here on a groupon offer last night. If I ate here at full price I would have been very disappointed. The meal started with a cold lump crab appetizer and a chilled lobster cocktail. Both tasted like they had been previously frozen and/or been cooked days before. Next we had the filet accompanied by mushrooms and asparagus. The steak was good, mushrooms were fine and the asparagus was excellent.
Now comes the part of the story where dining at a $100.00 a diner turned south. When you go to the bathroom to freshen up you do not find hand towels, but only a air hand dryer. I fully appreciate the green factor here, but why can't Bobby Van's Steakhouse be accommodating to people who might want to freshen up their faces or want a hand towel to use? If you cut corners on the availability and accommodation on hand towels, where else are you cutting corners?

The food was excellent. Fortunately, we got a small room which was quiet and our waiter could be more attentive. Everything served was outstanding. Definitely a place to go if you want a steak.
