I hadn't been to Bobby Van's in a couple of years and came here recently with a guest. The server was very polished and read the long list of specials with aplomb. My guest and I shared my favorite dish, the Oysters Rockefeller which is I think one of their best dishes. I was planning to have the Tuna Nicoise... More

I brought my daughter to Bobby Van's to celebrate and ordered the 48oz porterhouse for two. All the side dishes were excellent, however the steak had little to no flavor and as we worked through the other half it tasted as if it was old and rotten. I didn't want to make a scene with my daughter so I called... More

Very see and be seen in summer, but excellent food at high prices, some outdoor seating in summer on the sidewalk. I have always gotten quick attentive service here from pro waiters, and the wait between courses is short which I like, noisy in the height of summer ! Last summer they had a bit of a buzzing fly problem... More

Bobby Van's has a rich history. Truman Capote would have his favorite drink, an orange thin gee (4 parts of vodka and one part of orange juice). Willem de Kooning frequented the place as so many other artists did. Just imagine all those artists hanging out there. It must have been quiet a place for some great and invigorating discussions....

We wanted to have a good steak meal. We chose the right place . We knew it would be pricey, but it was well worth it . It's not fancy , but well worth the price for the meal .

Been here about 10 times. From stew to lobster rolls from Coronas to martinis. It's all great. Stop here everytime we come to the Hamptons and have never been disappointed. The waiters, the food, the ambiance, and the drinks all great. Looking forward to coming back.

Best burger in the area! Not cheap but so worth it. During the summer season it's always crowded but you can almost always get a seat for two at the bar without reservation. I mean they are known for steaks and we all know they are good but if you have a craving for a good juicy burger this is... More

The evening we ate there it was very noisy. The atmosphere and lighting are very nice. The food was good but overpriced. Our bill for two entries with 2 glasses of wine was $120.

Predictably good food, timely service, attractive atmosphere, Bobby Van's is reliably lovely. It is one of a few New York restaurants of this name. In addition to this one in Bridgehampton, another is in the city and at least one is in the JFK airport. You can order almost any imaginable American food from steaks to salads, all well prepared.

After spending nearly $1000 on dinner - four couples, apps, salads, drinks and dinner - practically threw us out of the table. No coffee, no dessert - we need the table. Had the service been better, it might not have taken so long. For the mediocre food, not worth the poor treatment.
