Bar Americain Ratings and Reviews
The ambiance is nice and service was ok but the food left lots to be desired. I had the tuna tartar and the coppinio both were average. My husband had the fried chicken dish and it was below average. The chicken was flavorless. For the price (and the name of famous celebrity chef owner) it is NOT worth it. We paid over $100 (no alcohol) for a mediocre at best meal. We were super disappointed.
A huge fan a supporter of the restaurant. Visited on Sunday a had the steak on the brunch menu. For some reason, my dinning partner, who had the same didn't enjoy it as much. Again, I have never had a sub-par meal at BarAmerican. Might I suggest replacing the current steak offer with the hanger. It is always first rate and a perfect portion. Will back soon
Waited almost 20 min. to be seated due to lack of menus when we arrived, even though we had a reservation. Decor was nice but there were a lot of light bulbs out throughout the restaurant. Maybe they were trying to hide the dust on the feature wall by the host stand. Bathrooms were unpleasant. Food was good. Loved the bread basket! Wish the brunch menu item I saw online had been available on the brunch menu at the restaurant.
Terrific experience from start to finish!
The restaurant is lively and comfortable. The food is really good as well as the cocktails. We found the wait staff, especially Lisa to be so helpful and really cared that we had a good time! We would definately recommend and return on our next trip to NYC!
have always came here for drinks at the bar on weekends, great bartenders very friendly and good drinks. this time we went for dinner. not to keen o nspicy foods, thinking of bobby flay style of cooking but were we fooled .the food was great ,the menu great. every thing tasted so fresh and flavorfull. one of our best dinners in ny. the service outstanding, waiters and servers the best.will be back again
My spouse had a great meal. She had the Skate with the Chili butter sauce. I on the other hand ordered the Thursday special. The Rib eye. Here was also just the option of the rib eye for 46$. My rib eye had about a teaspoon of two sauces. It was done correctly but there was so much fat it was really not much of a meal. I am from the Midwest and this steak could have come from a Ponderosa Steak house. It was so very think. Buoy would think for 56$ it would have been a solid piece of meat.
Do waste the money on a steak ( only meat nothing else) at Bar American. Very disappointed for a Bobby Flay place.
Wanted something close to Theater distract but not in the theater district for a Wednesday Matinee. The service was excellent and fast. The potato chips with blue cheese sauce was to die for. The pizza with bacon, caramalized onion and garlic was amazing. Mussels and steak sandwich were good but not special. Lots of business lunchers.
Bar American combines the three best things about going out for dinner: good food, great service and an imaginative atmosphere. We seemed to have four or five servers and they were all attentive and efficient - and very pleasant. The food was very good. IT was pricey. I suppose there is better food but the difference between "truly fabulous" and "really excellent" is reasonably fine. We liked it and would return.
We had reservations and were shown to our table in a very short amount of time. Our meal was excellent. While the menu wasn't large, there were great selections, including several vegetarian options. The service was phenominal. Bottom line, I highly recommend the restaurant and will return soon.
Cocktail glass dirty. Sent back and returned same dirty glass with same liquor(I knew this because of ice remnants...ordered scotch neat with ice on the side. Sent back again and finally got a new clean tumbler with a fresh and increased pour size (Glenlivet 12 yo). Main course borderline warm. Desert was phenomenal. My daughter is an aspiring chef and Foodnetwork Kids winner two times...this was very educational for her.z
Decent, but not better. Very convenient but little else worth noting. Food is over-sauced and probably higher calorie than needed. Menu also seems limited and static. Its a very presentable room and $40 pp in midtown is less than many places. Staff is professional and attentive. I go only for business.
The atmosphere and food were excellent!! All of the brunch items ordered among our group of 8 were guitar tasty. We all loved the beignets as appetizers and the homemade potato chips. I had the open-faced turkey sandwich and also tasted the French toast. The service made us a bit unhappy with our experience. The waiter was not attentive and when the hot tea was not hot and coffee got cold and we asked for them to be replaced. They charged us for 6 cups of coffee and 2 hot teas. This is after we ordered Belinis and Mimosa's. They did remove the charges when asked, so I am hoping this was an anomaly and still recommend for a lovely and tasty brunch.
