Enjoyed the seafood sampler as the app. I had the petite filet and my wife the Chilean Sea Bass. The creamed spinish was so, so. Service was great. Enjoyed eating outside on the sidewalk cafe.

Our hotel was so close to this restaurant, so we popped in for a quick lunch and it was so delish!!! The service was impeccable, 4 star service and I say 4 star because as we were paying up the servers were standing around us like hawks it was very uncomfortable and actually very strange. Regarding the food, we ordered... More

I was in NYC for a business meeting and was meeting up with my sister (who came in from NJ) and I asked for a dinner recommendation from the concierge at the hotel and he recommended Bobby Van's (on 50th St). So, we went there and were very pleased. So much so, that I met up with another friend the... More

Came here for a business lunch with foreign friends at the advice of the concierge at Sheraton Times Square. It was a good suggestion. They kindly gave us a table up front by the window, it was quiet enough to chat comfortable at a table for four, the service was attentive and accurate -- all good, and not always possible... More

This place faces Central Park, with outdoor sitting and open wall that allows the indoor tables to feel outdoors. Muy husband ordered a Niçoise Salad, with real tuna fish, almost raw, just sealed. I asked for a delicatessen hamburger, with Brie cheese and truffle oil, so thick that you´ll need knife and fork. But the best part was the onion... More

Nothing but professional friendly folks operating this beautiful establishment. Great steaks, crab cakes, wedge salad and pecan tart at our table. Huge portions of very high quality and fair prices. You actually get what you pay for at Bobby Van's. Highly recommend for a nice night out on the town. Note: also great breads and soft butter!

This Is One of My Favorite Places To Dine In The City. It's Classy, It's Chic, & The Service Is Excellent. Started With a Champagne Cocktail Which Was So Refreshing I Decided To Order Another. The Assortment of Breads Are Very Good, I Could Eat an Entire Basket, Myself. Then Had The Mac & Cheese & The Petite Filet Mignon.... More

I prefer seafood over steak and it might be better to eat steak here. I had the fried calamari - huge portion but taste only ok. Then the fruiti di mare pasta, which was again huge but only ok. Lobster pieces were good but shrimp were a bit overcooked. Pasta itself was good but sauce lacking in flavor. Did not... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
