Superb food! The shrimp wasSuperb food! The shrimp was yummy! Service was amazing!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMNoisy but DeliciousBar Americain never disappoints when it comes to food...or the noise level, which is deafening. We switched tables, sat near the door, and as the crowd thinned, we were able to hear the conversation at our own table! The food is wonderful and our waiter was a doll. We think of this restaurant for special occasions and it's still very unique and fun. Go later, when the noise level is more bearable.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceThis was ny second visit and I must say it just got better. The food was great but the service really made it a wonderful meal. We were with friends who are not foodies but the waiter made good suggestions and made them feel at ease. They said that the next time they are in NYC they are coming back!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMReally goodEvery aspect of the meal...cocktail, appetizer, entree and dessert was far above average. And the surprise was surprisingly reasonable considering New York City's normally absurd costs for a nice dinner out. Would highly recommend this place.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchWe had a fantastic brunch this past mother's day at Bar Americain. Started off with the most wonderful beignets accompanied with home jams such as strawberry jalapeno and wild cherry bourbon--just to name a few. The lamb sausages were some of the best we have ever eaten. Our table right by the open kitchen would have been just as fabulous had only Mr. Flay been in the house. I would highly recommend this restaurant for brunch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is very good andThe food is very good and the service is great. The menu has great variety so it fits the eat healthy crowd and the steak and potatos dinners. Prices is also very reasonable for a fine dining restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here for my boyfriend'sWe went here for my boyfriend's birthday- he'd been wanting to try this place for quite a while. The food was incredible, and the portions were surprisingly generous given the quality of the food. Servers and busers were very attentive without hovering. Excellent experience overall. Our only issue was that it was a little bit noisy, but that's to be expected. Highly recommend!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing restaurant. AmazingAmazing restaurant. Amazing food. Great service. Overall very impressed!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBar ExcellenceThis was our second visit to the restaurant and again it was an excellent experience. The staff and our waiter Daniel were superb and made the ambience even more inviting for a future return trip. I highly recommend the restaurant for anyone visitng New York.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!I took my girlfriend for her birthday. We had been wanting to try Bar Americain for a while. I reserved a table on the mezzanine, and it was ready even we were a half hour late. We received 2 type of bread to snack on once we ordered apps on entreeés. One of the breads was almost cornbread like. Extremely tasty. The apps was a simple thick cut bacon grilled pizza. Again tasty. For the main course she order Lambchops which she wanted to devour even the done. Myself, I ordered the chicken. Probably 1 of the best chickens I've had. The side it was served over was excellent, too. Though I can't remember what it was called.
Service was attentative. Staff was very nice, polite, and accomadating.
Overall, Bar Amercain is a must try.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visited Bar Americain forWe visited Bar Americain for lunch on a rainy day and the Vidalia onion soup along with a great selection of elevated comfort food was just what we needed. The service was excellent during a busy lunch hour and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Nice!Have been here several times and this was by far the best experience yet. The food was outstanding. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is it would be nice to offer some dishes that are not spicey. The Ciopinno, the Lamb Chops, Ribeye all cooked to perfection. The white peach and blueberry crepe has to be one of the best desserts we have ever had, although, the pistachio Creme brûlée was right up there as well. Plan ahead and make a reservation and enjoy!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodExcellent food and decor, good service, but slightly noisy for a business meeting. Perhaps it was because my table was closer to the door.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second time atThis was our second time at Bar Americain. I had the shrimp cocktail with the tomatillo cocktail sauce - it was sweet yet spicy from the horseradish and delicious. My husband had the deviled egg with shrimp - a classic with a delicious twist. We both has the rib eye steak which had so much flavor and the steak sauce only amped it up. Everything at this place is great, the food, service and atmosphere are what you expect from a great NYC restaurant.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a special occasionBeautiful restaurant, great staff, delicious food. Pretty pricey, so not a place to frequent, but we went for a birthday and it was a great choice.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great timeMy family loved Bar Americain. My Philly strip steak special was terrific. However, my Sly Fox Pils was somewhat flat and not cold enough. The side order of fries was much smaller than usual.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!Fantastic food, service and experience! We will definitely return next time we are in the city5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThe service was fantastic, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was good. This is a great place for before or after theater dinning.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMJust as you would expect- fantasticService was the best I have had in NYC - attentive, natural, helpful, and at the ready. The food was delicious - expected in some ways, and just slightly unexpected in others. Everything tasted great - and that's what you want. Some twists - Snapper "Florida style" - so flavorful, but you could taste the fish and it was delisious. Asparagus chopped salad was the perfect blend of ingredients, and all stood out. Can't begin to say how good the deconstructed chocolate cream pie tasted - sadly, had to leave a few bites on the plate even after splitting it because the rest of the meal was so good. Wine suggestions were spot on. We were pre-theater, and the meal was timed perfectly to accommodate. Thanks, Bobby - last night in NYC was perfect!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have found that all BobbyWe have found that all Bobby Flay's restaurants provide outstanding food and service5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat eveningBar Americain came recommended by our daughter.

The chips with blue cheese dip were a wonderful pre-dinner treat. The other three persons in my party also enjoyed their meals. I had the salmon and it was perfectly cooked.

The food is always outstanding and the cocktail menu is heavenly. But it is really the staff that keeps me coming back. I am usually alone when I dine there and I really appreciate that the staff does not make me feel uncomfortable for that. They make you feel like part of the family and that is a very welcome treat! Top notch all the way around!

I hate drinking out of the small nose and rimmed glass it takes away from the enjoyment of the glass of wine. When I told the waiter he said you get the better glass when you order a bottle of wine. Come on Bobby get with the program. Not cool!!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food, impeccableWonderful food, impeccable service, terrific atmosphere.

I had the crabcakes, excellent but I would try something else next time.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
