Bobby Van’s is a typical American grill. It means service is effective, dishes are generous and fresh and the setting allows good conversation. Nothing to put in your scrapbook, just a good old fashinoed lunch experience

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.
