Bobby Van's Park Avenue - 'The Original'

Located in New York's landmark Helmsley Building, Bobby Van's Steakhouse has been serving the best porterhouse in town for the last eleven years. Upon entering, one is greeted with the sight of a credenza groaning under the weight of large bottles of wine. A bar full of regular customers is on the left and looking into the one-hundred seat dining room, one sees the thirty foot high ceiling and windows overlooking Park Avenue. To complement our Prime Aged Steaks our Sommelier has created an award winning wine list. Whether you're looking for a big Cabernet, a Pinot Noir or something in between our comprehensive list is sure to please. "

"Having eaten at many steakhouses in town, Bobby Van's is subpar, at best. The filet was tasteless, the taragon Bearnaise only okay, and the house steak sauce weak. I would prefer to eat a steak without a sauce in order to enjoy the beef flavor but I found Bobby Van's meat under seasoned, leading to a very bland flavor (though it was cooked correctly). We also had the classic wedge salad, which was good but too much. No one needs half a head of lettuce, unless you are sharing or making it your entire meal. As for the service, we found it standard NYC steakhouse- somewhat gruff male servers quickly taking orders and doling out the food. This I find acceptable, even desirable, at a steakhouse. The tasteless steak I do not (especially at these prices...)."

"Bobby Van's is definitely "old school" - the ambiance is pleasantly noisy - business oriented lunch crowd, and waiters that look like they stepped out of the nineteen fifties - unfortunately, our order took about 45 minutes to arrive - we had to flag the waiter down several times to ask where the food was, and he just gave us a very befuddled look and said he would ask again. No apologies, offer of free drink or anything - food was arriving all around us. The meal was well prepared when it finally arrived, but there were moments when my guest and I were wondering if we should cut our losses and just leave. There are so many good options for steak restaurants in NY - would definitely go to a better run chain like Capital Grille, next time a guest is looking for steak."

"I have been dining at this Bobby Van's for more than ten years. After a three year absence due to business in Singapore, I returned this week for two dinners. It's a world class restaurant with service which starts when you check your coat and ends when you leave. Waiters are true professionals who keep an eye on you at all times but keep their distance when they know business is being discussed.
I would put this Bobby Van's location at the absolute top of my list for an important lunch or dinner for either an important business or personal meeting.

"Wife and I took the trip into the city for date night. We were glad we did. Food was amazing and paralleled by the service. Had the Cajun bone-in rib eye steak which was cooked perfectly to my liking. Wife had the shrimp which she raved about as well. Service was attentive and prompt. Would definitely come back."

"We had a fantastic steak lunch at Bobby Van's. The filet was melt-in-your-mouth tender. The sides were delicious. The waiters were super accommodating and friendly. This was a perfect spot for lunch after seeing the tree and shopping in Rock Center. Thanks Bobby Van's!!!"
