Great service and food was delicious
This was a generally terrible experience. We had a 9:15 reservation, but as soon as we got there (10 minutes early) they told us they wouldn’t be ready for us. We waited at the bar to be seated until 9:50, where we were served mediocre, poorly made drinks. They finally seated us, then were “out of” 3 different bottles of wine we tried to order, so instead upsold us on a more expensive bottle that was not spectacular. Food was fine, not great. We didn’t get out until nearly midnight. There are so many better restaurants within a 3 block radius, I don’t know why anyone would go here.
Barbounia exceeded our expectations. Four of us had selected the restaurant for a mid-holiday luncheon get-together. We chose the Israeli Halfa which was very tasty and actually fun. Three of us chose the lamb kebab (done to three different specifications) and one ordered the shrimp. Delicious. We broke down and also had dessert (expensive at $13 apiece), two of us sharing the apple mille feuille with caramel ice cream, the other two trying the mousse cake. A Loire Valley white wine was a perfect match for our meal. Decor couldn't have been prettier. Service was charming and excellent. A great success!
Very attentive and friendly staff - very festive and lots of people having a good time with good food at decent prices!
Absolutely delicious! Great atmosphere. Excellent service.
Highly recommend the lamb!
What a fabulous dinner. The service and food were excellent.
Very fun and delicious food. Great service!
I have been to Barbounia before few times and it’s been a good experience however last visit was not great . They made us wait fir our table too long and we only 3 guests . The staff was a bit cold and uninviting !
Food and service were very good. There was a VERY loud large party near us. Every so often they would get so loud the other diners turned to look. I don’t think any restaurant staff asked them to be a little quieter. I expect and like some conversational noise but this was out of line and I fault the staff for not doing anything about it.
Absolutely superb unusual food-- great atmosphere,--very very crowded and with good reason!
Discovered them on instagram and loved it!! Def will go many more times!!
They need to figure out their open table integration. I love the food in this place but last two occasions I’ve waited 30+minutes for a table past the time we had a reservation. Even then you have to keep reminding the check in who just tell you to go sit in the bar and they’ll come get you. They don’t! They rely on app. If you’re not looking at phone or your phone has died after a day in NYC and you miss that one text even though you are sat 10 yards away, they don’t come and get you. They don’t seem to be able to manage restaurant capacity and reservations. Every time I’ve been somebody has been annoyed at having to wait 40+ minutes for a table
Been here many times before. Seems like a lot has changed where the food is concerned. The salad was not as tasty, had to ask for some more dressing, they changed the eggplant dip (added tomatoes) and we did not like it. Falafel was not good. Artichoke dish was enjoyable. The Brussels sprouts good, I was dunking them in tahini dressing. Bread is the best thing we had this time, although I would ve liked it to be more well done but that’s just me.
We were seated 30 mins late and hostess was impolite/in. Sorry to have bothered her
Great food, but tiny servings for the full entree price. I ordered a special with homemade pappardelle and crab and there were - not exaggerating- 3-5 long noodles swirled together, at most. Flavor was great, but it was definitely not enough for a meal. We had to order bread on the side just to feel full enough- which we were also charged extra for, and left still hungry after paying over $50 for this dish and one drink.
Took my date here to celebrate his birthday. Everything was amazing!
Me and my friend made reservation last minute, and once we walked in the hostess greeted us right away, and luckily asked if we wanted to be seated right away, or we wanted to have a drink at the bar.
The bartender Miljan was so entertaining, we decided to eat at the bar.
The manager passed by to check on us, and he was worried that something was wrong since we did not sat at the table, which was a very nice gesture.
Will be back here again very soon.
Great place , I'll definitely gonna recommend about this place . I took my girlfriend for birthday dinner and she was highly satisfied, and that's worth the most for me . Besides that, we are from Israel and the menu was a reminder of home .
The service was caring and efficient.
We will come back that's I'm sure
Beautiful space, delicious food, fun vibe
Went better than expected. Date loved also
Exceeded my expectations. Staff was warm, food was very good. Would return
So so great! The food! The service! We will be back for sure.
Good food. Always order the flatbread. Nice setting, good food. Excellent recommendation for my wine: a dry Sancerre.
The food at Barbounia never disappoints. We got multiple dishes at brunch and shared amongst ourselves and were not disappointed with any of them. They also have a great bottomless option that you can continue at the bar afterwards until 4pm.
Amazing food and ambiance! Absolutely loved this place. We had a very cozy and delicious dining experience
Too expensive for what it was and the music was too loud, couldn’t talk to the person in front of me.
Food was just ok.. much to noisy
Beautiful place, great food, excellent buzz and energy. Great food and good service. Really enjoyed the entire experience.
I got a table at 3:30 and as soon as we came we were rushed to order and told the kitchen was closing in ten minutes. The restaurant shouldn’t accept reservations at that time then! Aside from that the food was great as was the service! Will return again but come earlier!
Amazing food , though today the service was lacking today. I’ve been over 30 times though and this is not the norm!
Food was amazing. Very fresh and lots of options for brunch
We start w/ Hummus, Labaneh and Green Tahini which is amazing appetizer options. Then I order Shakshuka Merguez, divine, and husband order BLT Khachapuri. Excellent attendance.
Delicious food with creative approach & plating.
Very good food. Felt like waiter was trying to rush us out of restaurant because they were very crowded.
I love this restaurant would give 5 stars prior to this recent experience. Our server may have been new..... he insisted that we order all our courses together and he would course them out.
We ordered 6 items.... he sent 5 of them out together! There wasn’t even enough space on the table for 4! We decided to ask to have 1 dish sent back before it hit the table which the runner kindly agreed. But this set the tone for the entire dinner. RUSHED
As I am writing this I also recall our water glasses were removed from the table before we even signed our check. I wish I had my receipt to include the servers name and the time we were there..... I don’t believe we sat more than 2 hours.
Overall experience was great. The bar scene is really good. I had a drink before dinner at the bar and it just a vibrant but comfortable place to sit and be able to talk to someone without having to scream.
Always very elegant
It was recommended to me and I am now a huge fan! Service was impeccable and food was incredible. The Raw bar and Wine list were spectacular and I look forward to dinner there again.
The food was quite good but this might be the worst service I have experienced in years. I like to think that it was not because it was we were two women at the table and there were several large groups (though staffing was clearly not the problem - lots of staff folks were standing around, just not attending to us, but I have no idea. And let me just add, we were not two women sharing a salad and ordering a glass of wine each - we wanted cocktails, dinner and wine - but we literally needed to flag someone down at every stage of the meal. Not good.
Fantastic food, excellent service, outstanding ambiance, will definitely be back!!
