"Not my kind of place. This was my second visit. Same experience. I had a reservation, but was seated 20 minutes later. A mob scene in the lobby full of people waiting. Felt as if I were in the Olive Garden. Hard to talk. Waiter asked us every 5 minutes if we needed anything. Very close to the next table with small children. Not sure why people like this restaurant. The food is good, comfort food, but not my scene."

Bobby Van’s Grill marks the return of the powerful New York City chop shop to the downtown D.C. area but with a new twist. This eclectic New American Steakhouse now boasts a slightly more casual family friendly atmosphere as well as catering to the Washington politician. This 536-seat D.C. destination is fully loaded! There’s four private, intimate and upscale dining rooms with their own bar and bar services. Two 40-foot long bars can be found with friendly bartenders serving strong drinks and even stronger conversations. The main dining room boasts views of both New York Avenue and the plush marble atrium of the adjoining building amidst its beautiful water fountain. This is an ideal place to meet for power lunches, family gatherings and late night dinners in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

"Took a client there this week. we moved our office out of the neighborhood, so it had been a while. The manager remembered us and gave us our favorite table, and the food and service were outstanding!"
