This place was pretty good. A bit pricey, but great service. The French onion soup was kind of bland, but the pizzas we had were awesome. Cocktails were fun. Nice place.

I return to New York approx twice a year and always visit this excellent family restraunt. Whilst there is a varied menu steak is what they do best. And the wine list enables quality reasonably priced wine to accompany the food. Excellent be back soon.

We had a delicious meal, great cocktails, excellent and friendly service at Bobby Van's before we headed out to a show. It's kind of old-school atmosphere, the waiters wear these funny jackets and roll everything around on carts.
