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.

Nice place, good ambiance, attentive staff. I had the steak salad, made with fillet. It was very good. This is a good place to grab a bite and a drink after a show.

One of my favorite steakhouses in manhattan. The steak is always prepared perfectly. I usually go with the filet mignon or New York strip which are always delicious. Creamed spinach is the best. Service is always on point.
