Great, traditional steakhouse. Wood paneling. Ala Carte, expensive menu and excellent food. A nice treat.

There are lots of Bobby Van's Steak Houses in NYC. This one is at 25 Broad Street and an easy walk from the Wall St. subway stop (the block of construction work on the street to the entrance of the restaurant is not very appealing)....More

Good meat, reliable service. A bit on the loud and noisy side. However, nothing special...just a good steakhouse that does not manage to stand out from the crowd.

Nice atmosphere... dark furniture, low lighting. Food was awesome... steak cooked to perfection! Waiter was not very attentive despite the restaurant not being crowded at the time. Nonetheless... I would return and recommend to others.

A little disappointed as they didn't have any lunch specials. The steak and sides were delicious but was not prepared to spend so much for lunch. The service was very good. The atmosphere is your typical NYC steakhouse - tables close, loud, ........

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. "
