This restaurant ranks among my top choices for recommendations to my friends for dining out. The food is incredible. The servers are pleasant and service is great. The atmosphere and ambiance is great.
Fantastic! It was my husbands birthday and the staff went out of their way to make it a great experience. Delicious food, amazing cocktails, excellent service. We will definitely be back!
Perfection! Wonderful dining experience as usual. Very touching their acknowledging our anniversary with the Prosecco and decorating the dessert plate so beautifully. Excellent dining experience!
We were bowled over by our 1st Barnea experience in Aug 2019 and returned with very high expectations. The overall experience was pleasant but it fell short of the superior service, pleasing ambiance and excellent cuisine that we enjoyed previously. Last August, although the smaller restaurant was packed, we truly felt as if we were the only diners due to the warm, personal and attentive service we received from the moment we entered right up until we left. This time, the service was adequate. We ordered the very same appetizers and mains, as previously, and expected the very same perfection. The Delmonico steak was fatty and somewhat salty and the duck was not as tasty as we remembered. The desserts were a very pleasant conclusion to the meal. It was a very expensive 3-4 star evening out.
Lovely experience for a special occasion!
The food was decent, but insanely overpriced. And while I understand it’s expensive to run a kosher meat restaurant in Manhattan, there is really no excuse for charging $34 for a bowl of spaghetti with a few mushrooms on top. While they offered some nice and good QPR wines by the bottle, the selection of wine by the glass was poor and very limited. The service was absolutely terrible; our server only took our orders and never came back to check on anything, even though it was not a busy night. I had to flag down another server to ask for a different glass of wine since the one I ordered was undrinkable. Another kosher restaurant that cost us a small fortune to visit when we could have made a meal of comparable quality at home for a quarter of the price.
Perfect for a special occasion! or, makes every occasion special! Loved it, loved it, loved it!!
Ruth, thank you so much for your kind words. We are so happy you enjoyed yourself, and look forward to having you dine with us again in the future.
Our sever Carlos was on point for every recommendation. The food was cooked to perfection and the flavors were amazing. Can’t eat to go again
Thank you for the kind words; Carlos is pretty wonderful, isn't he? So glad you enjoyed yourself; we can't wait to have you back!
The food and service at this restaurant can’t be beat. I just wish they had a coatroom.
Incredible artichoke soup. Aleppo oil was the perfect touch. Veal chop cooked (medium) and seasoned to perfection. Service was amazing. Best kosher experience I’ve had in midtown, if not anywhere.
Excellent all around. For a quieter more intimate experience, request the newer interior space.
Dinner was delicious and was a very great experience all around!
Absolutely beautiful restaurant, food was delicious.
Very cool vibe, interior was magnificent.
I will definitely be recommending this restaurant to my friends and family.
My wife and I went for our anniversary lunch. The ambiance was spectacular and the food was great. The best part were the amazing cocktails!
Great service and food go there for a great experience
My family and I enjoyed a very nice lunch during our trip to the city. We all shared the lamb riblets and patatas bravas. My son and I both had the beef bolognese and my other son and husband had the beef brisket sandwich. Everything was delicious and the service was fantastic.
Went there for our anniversary dinner they gave us a four-person table for just the two of us so we have plenty of room. We were seated in the "backroom" = quieter. I have to sharing a few appetizers and drinks the major d offered an additional two drinks on the house because our main dish was delayed by a few extra minutes, we gladly accepted and enjoyed. With our dinner we received an additional two complementary glasses of dessert wine. Everything was exceptional we'll be going back again.
Food was excellent and waitress service was outstanding.
The time from placing order to food arriving at the table was unacceptably long for a business lunch.
While the menu is quite pricey, the food was excellent. The staff was attentive and pleasant.
The restaurant just expanded so there is plenty of room. I had a veal cutlet which was prepared to perfection. I have had the baby lamb chops in earlier visits which were also delicious
I think they just had an off night- service was very slow. We waited a long time to get our appetizers.
My favorite place to eat. Veal is amazing. Artichoke soup was amazing. Bethel was great up front and Carlos & Jason were great at the table.
Bartenders great - everything rose mediocre and overpriced
Our wait staff was terrific. Very professional and not pushy or rushing us. We sat at our table for 2 hours and really enjoyed ourselves and the food.
The food was great but not hot enough, If my 10 cents counts soups and appetizers shouldn't be served together, Soup should be served Piping hot, The steak was great, the side dishes mash potatoes was creamy tasty and delicious
Food was great - tasty, large portions and interesting presentations. Service was very friendly and very helpful.
The 4 of us sat for more than 2 hours enjoying the ambiance, food and drink -- though it was a bit noisy.
We'll definitely return for another good meal!
Perfect venue for business meal. Food and service were excellent.
The food was delicious from start to finish and the service was great. We had a glass of wine and cocktail, LeViolette, salade barnea, lamb riblets, patatas bravas (the croquettes were so savory!), fillet de bouef, and duck breast (the risotto made my mouth watery with every bite). One of the best meals ever. Everything was really, really good and cooked to perfection. I cannot wait to come back! I've been to the top kosher restaurants in Manhattan and this is definitely in the top 3 of meat restaurants. May you continue to have success!
Everything was just perfect
Food service and atmosphere the staff were very helpful and pleasant
Excellent experience...joined a couple who had never been there before...had a great time. Service, food, ambience lovely.
Highly recommend! We went out for my father's birthday outing. The food was phenomenal, service was impeccable. Ambiance was really nice and overall had a great experience. In addition to the amazing service we received while dining, the staff was also very helpful off hours. I left my headphones at the table and called Barnea 3 days later to see if they found them. They said that they hadn't but they took my contact information down in the event they showed up. Needless to say they turned up later that evening and Barnea called me back to let me know I can come and pick them up. Absolutely amazing service and amazing food, I highly recommend coming here!
Great restaurant. Everyone who works there is very passionate and are proud to make sure that there customers are happy.
Food is spectacular, quality over the top, service top notch!!!
There is no better kosher restaurant in New York, but it is expensive.
Great service, amazing quality food. Highly recommended !
The food and cocktails are inventive, well-prepared, and beautifully presented. The wine list is lovely. I would definitely go back.
The restaurant does not quite provide the hushed, cosseted experience one expects from this price level. Service could be more polished with the waiter anticipating our needs and not having to ask (more than once) the M d’ to find our server. We heard another server across the room declaiming (specials, etc.) throughout the meal in a loud voice.
That said Barnea Bistro provided an enjoyable evening out.
Decor is spectacular, service is A+++, food is unbelievable. Overall an excellent experience
Awesome as always! Service, atmosphere and food were amazing.
This is an amazing restaurant. The food and flavors are high quality, the ambiance and service are great, and—if it matters to you—it is kosher. I look forward to returning.
Barnea Bistro has now become a constant on our dining out schedule. The food preparations are excellent. The special soup that evening (artichoke) was excellent with a wonderful infusion of different flavors. My wife's recommended cocktail was delicious. While we did not try the new entrees and remained with our favorites, Rack of Lamb and the filet, they were expertly prepared. Dessert was good enough (for parve) and the waiters recommendation of a special alcoholic latte was spot on. Service as well was top notch. Keep it up.
The food was excellent, the service even better. We were on a very tight schedule and they were able to accommodate us. Thank you and we hope to see you many more times.
