I went here for my friends bday.... I hated our meal. To spend over $300 for 2 people I expected so much more. Really broke my heart considering dining is restricted and it was my first outing in a long time with him.

We went for Valentine’s dinner but didnt avail of their Valentine’s menu as they didnt have steak in the special menu. My husband and I had the bine in ribe eye which was delicious! Mushroom and brussel sprouts are tasty and huge serving for 2 people.

Service somewhat slow but it Valentine’s day so maybe they are very busy.

Ambience is dark and cozy, it is in an antique JP Morgan vault which is cool.

This is my second time eating at Bobby Van's. My first experience was outstanding with great food and great service from the bartender Shaquille. This time around, the food was still good, but the service was lacking and a little rude. It was on Valentine's Day and if they had a time limit imposed on length of stay, then that probably should have been mentioned up front. Instead when our appetizer came and our server was immediately trying to get our meal order; we asked for a few minutes and he said (kind of loudly standing in the middle of the floor) that we only had one hour?!?!? Which made absolutely no sense that a "romantic" 3 course meal should be scarfed down in ONE hour...Now I will say he did back off and we ultimately stayed for 2 hours. Not sure if Management mentioned something or if they weren't getting the rush they anticipated, but it was still off putting and set a terrible tone for the entire evening. On top of that, I didn't hear of anyone else being told of a time limit, so it made me wonder if we were being rushed because the server was anticipating not getting a decent tip (sidenote: I'm an excellent tipper and even with the not so great service, still tipped $50 on a $250 bill). While the food remains excellent, it doesn't make up for rude service and unless I can sit in the bar area and have Shaquille as a server, I will probably not go back again.

The food was just okay. The service was not good. We ordered an additional side that never came out. By the time we saw the waiter, our meal was more than half way done and we asked him to cancel it. He still brought it out, cold. We didn't get charged for it but it was irritating. Then he charged us double by accident. Which is an easy fix but just another example about a lack of attention. I have been to multiple other Bobby Van's locations and had a wonderful experience, so i expected the same from broad street. Unfortunately, this has put a bad taste in my mouth going forward. Which is extremely disappointing for me. It felt like because it was the day before valentines day, and they had a special valentines day menu, that the quality just lacked. Really upsetting.

The are not open for outdoor dining. I wish you would have accurate information about which Restaurants are open for outdoor dining. It was freezing that day and we were not able to find anywhere else to go. It was a very annoying experience. The restaurant had no explanation for why they are still taking reservations.

The food is always delicious but the service is drastically different than it was a year ago. Pre-COVID the wait staff was very attentive and quick, but now that seating is limited and there are less people dining in; one would hope the service may be the same but it is not. Had to repeatedly ask to get drink refills and food wrapped to go while our waiter would walk by without refilling empty glasses.

Everything was great! This was my first time dining out since March 10th and I was super nervous. I was so appreciative of the fact they took super extra precautions to not only protect us but also their staff.

The food is always amazing and the service was excellent, as always.

I’ll definitely be back sooner rather than later.

The service was okay. It’s outside dining so there’s not much to expect where that is concerned. My party was running late and they seated us until everyone else showed up. They were patient and accommodating. However as our appetites were building, when the food came it was lack luster. I was disappointed as we heard great things about Bobby Van’s. The steak orders were wrong. The mashed potatoes were “sour” as if they were spoiled or something. The calamari was soggy. The Caesar salad was a disappointment. They were nice enough to take the mashed potatoes off the receipt and my mother was unable to eat her steak as the order was incorrect and the kitchen was closed so it could not be rectified. I think the area is beautiful and the service is great. However a part of going out for dinner is eating and the food was not enjoyable at all.
