Tacky! I called on Friday afternoon and said I would like to make a reservation. The host who I talked to informed me there was no need to make reservations. Fast-forward a few hours, my date and I show up for dinner. I asked to be seated and the host (bald gentleman) told me there were no tables available. I then asked, "What's wrong with the DOZEN empty tables I see right behind you?" He said they were spoken for and I would have to wait at least an hour for a table. I said ok we'll wait. We sat there for 40 minutes and he did not seat anyone at any of the empty tables that he claimed were "spoken for." We were not under-dressed by any means. We were very upset because neither of us ever ate there and were anxious to try it. Sadly though, we will never get the chance because we won't go back.

Excellent menu. Had a bottle of Rodney Strong cab with our pepper crusted filet and horseradish crusted mahi. Both plates were excellent. The setting its very cozy and perfect for families, dates & friends. The service and management are top notch.very friendly. I highly recommend Bobby Van's.

Large portions and a good atmosphere. The steak however was just ok given the price. This is my second time here and the food is pretty good.

part 2 I had to go to MY insurance office- file a claim directly through them, and have my car repaired on my own dime. My insurance company WILL be going after the Valet company directly in an attempt to get my money back. They caused 1300$ worth of damage to my vehicle, and due to the fact they couldnt be bothered to clear the glass out of my car, the entire trunk lift gate had to be removed to clear the glass that had gotten trapped in the door jam causing the trunk to become stuck. They also never hooked up the rear defrost at all. I had to pay my 250$ deductible, even though I wasnt even in the car when the accident happened!!! I had to also pay 250$ for a rental car so that I could get to and from work for the week and a half that my car was in the shop. To date, I have paid 540$ out of pocket for expenses related to this accident, and I find how it was handled by your valet company to be completely unacceptable. Now, my insurance will go after them however this is just another headache for me!! I can only "hope" that one day they will be able to get my money back. I go to Bobby Vans often, and really enjoy my time there. I have been there often! I have even celebrated my wedding anniversary there. The food is excellent and the drinks and service superb. However, I can no longer visit your restaurant as long as that valet company is contracted there. This is very disappointing, but it is the truth....I dont write this looking for anything for "free" or to get money out of the restaurant in any way. I write this to make you aware that a company you are doing business with is breaking the law. Even though they are contracted, this reflects very poorly on your establishment. I would hope you would reconsider what company you are using for valet services!

Yes, it's D.C. so you expect it to be pricey, but I expected better quality as well. Portion sizes were great, but I've had better food for less than half the price at chain restaurants outside of D.C.
