I went with a group of people, so I was able to try a variety of dishes. The Sweet Chili Calamari was excellent. Salad was very good. The side order of bacon was gluttonous, but fantastic. Tomato and Mozzarella was also nice. The steaks were obviously good, but not incredible. All in all, I was quite happy with the dinner. Our service was very helpful and friendly, which is not always the norm for a NYC restaurant.

We were a party of 6 on Sat. July 20th at 7:30pm. We made ressies through Open Table. We arrived to find there was NO air conditioning in the restaurant during the heatwave in NYC.Ignoring ALL of our contact info at their fingertips, Bobby Van's neglected to call and notify us there was no a/c nor did they try to accommodate our ressie in one of their many other locations. They had portable a/c's used at the bar but neglected to move them into the dining room. Upon being seated, I gulped down my iced water and after the fact noticed there was a huge, unidentifiable bug in my iced water - I suggested to the waiter that he provide me with an alcoholic beverage to kill whatever germs/bacteria I just ingested. We got past that and sat through the rest of our meal with sweat literally pouring down our bodies. My husband had to leave the table to go into the bathroom, take off his shirt and DRY IT under the hand dryer!!! Our waiter was pleasant and kept telling us that the a/c would be fixed any moment which is why we stayed however, I sat through the meal with sweat literally dripping off my forehead, down my chest and left the restaurant completely soaked from head to toe. No, we did NOT stay for dessert!!! I've been to all the best steakhouses in NY, Brooklyn and Long Island. Most restaurants on LI are my clients. I know the executive chefs and restauranteurs and have NEVER experienced anything like this. While I'm reading this I can't believe we just didn't leave the restaurant but these plans were with old friends from NY, LI and NJ, 6 weeks in the making and it was a Saturday night in NYC - where could we possible get a last minute ressie?! My biggest complaint is that the manager did absolutely NOTHING to acknowledge our discomfort or our displeasure. He avoided us like the plague - never came to the table, never acknowledged the situation, never apologized - simply put, he was just happy to have the business! And with a table of 6, drinking, ordering apps and $50 steaks, he did us and Bobby Van's a huge DISservice! Shame on you!!!

The food was great, once it finally arrived. We had our steaks served with "freekeh" (a kind of roasted green wheat) which was great. Unfortunately the breadsticks were all out of order, very annoying. I had to ask the manager to reorder the breadsticks several times so the largest are on the outside and become progressively smaller. Maybe its a small detail but I find it very offputting when such a basic courtesy is ignored.

Once I took clients to Bobby Van's for the first time I have never had a steak from anywhere else since. The staff makes you feel completely at home. The bar and wait staff are the most professional I have encountered at any restaurant both here and abroad. While other steakhouses have resorted to buying lesser quality meat during the recession, Bobby Van's continues to serve the best quality beef, but I dont take their word for it, I can taste it. I would highly recommend Bobby Vans. I have been to most of their locations and the same great service and food can be had at any one.

if you want steak, OK. Don't get their soft shell crab. Tasteless. Also, expensive. Try Frankie and Johnny's for better food
