Bobby Van's Steakhouse - DC Ratings and Reviews
The steaks were not delicious that night ...
The steaks were not delicious that night and were considered to be highly overrated in flavor and tenderness. The price was what was to be expected if the steaks mathched the taste, flavor and tenderness of the steaks at other high class steak restaurants. My guest and I were very disappointed. When we came into the Restaurant, we thought that from the appearance of the decor, that surely that this was going to be a great and memomorable experience. However, we were very disappointed once we tasted the steaks (filot mignon and rib eye) that were not only lacking in tenderness but also in taste.

We had an excellent dinner to celebrate our friend's birthday, and it was everything we could have asked for. They were incredibly accommodating to our group, and treated us to a lovely evening. We will certainly return!

This place is amazing. The servers, ambiance, decor and food are top-notch.
It helps a lot when you use the deal on Groupon....which also adds to the appeal of this world-class restaurant since they know they will attract more business by making more dining options available to a wider customer base. I'll be back soon:)

If you want a good steak, i definitely recommend. Our meal on this particular visit was quite good. Steaks perfectly seasoned and prepared. Service still leaves something to be desired but overall everything was good.

Fantastic. We were seated promptly in a cozy booth. The maitre'd recommended the porterhouse for two since we're both steak fans. Man was he right on with that recommendation. Basically it's a huge slab of meat consisting of two cuts: NY Strip and Filet, cooked on the bone. We ordered it medium rare. Both the presentation and the taste were spectacular, and it was the correct temperature. Our appetizer (calamari) and dessert (bread pudding) were also right on point.

The service was outstanding. My water and wine glasses were never empty. The steak and french onion soup were outstanding. My side, aspargus, left something to be desired. I dined at Ruth's Chris just the week prior and the aspargus there was also lacking so perhaps it's just not the right season for asparagus. This is a great, high end steakhouse.

Sitting outside on a nice fall evening. Drinking a Seabreeze to bid summertime cocktails a 'see you soon' goodbye. Presented with a perfectly - charred medium rare bone-in ribeye that covers the plate along with creamy mashed potatoes with a nice garlic floavor and a dish full off mushrooms and carmelized onions by servers who are attentive and friendly. Life is good!

Hostess allowed my client to stand outside for 10 minutes when we were in the restaurant. She should have directed her to us, as we had a reservation, and she knew we were there. It was embarrassing and a waste of time for the client, who was annoyed.

Mike pours a wonderful martini and makes great suggestions. It always feels comfortable when I come here. Greeted by John and attentive service, this is a consistent choice for a good experience. However, I made multiple reference before my guest arrived and while we dined,that it was her birthday. However, no special recognition or acknowledgement was ever made.... not even when encouraged to order dessert... I paid .... no candle, no song no complimentary anything even well wishes.... not usual for BV's... maybe just an off night...
Will always return anyway.

This is a fairly typical upscale steakhouse. Service was great, though, and drinks were generous. One if the best steaks I've ever had. Portions were enormous, and our waiter was kind enough to triple wrap our leftovers so we could fly home with them the next day

Wonderful environment and great food...
First time there and can't wait to go back...
Only thing I don't like is having to pay for valet parking but that may be the norm in the area being that I am from down south.
Go if you haven't been!!
