    Food is always excellent! High noise level inside because the place is so busy. We had the Tuna Tartare over avacado yummy. Frisse salad is so good with thick cut pieces of bacon. The infused vodka is wonderful goes down smooth. Meatloaf is the best I have ever had. Enjoy this high end resturant :)

  • Solid/Reliable

    Bar Frites filled a need that was really apparent in the general area of Greenvale. This place has almost zero competition, and the bar scene/restaurant proves that, as generally it's filled most nights. The menu is what you might expect from an Americanized French steak restaurant, very reliable and delicious. It might be a little pricey for a general family outing, but there are some less expensive offerings on the menu like pasta. All in all, a very solid restaurant with good service and excellent location.

    Dined on 8/21/2014
    I have been to this restaurant at least 8 times. This last visit was nice, but the service of food was too fast. I can understand Ownership wanting to turn the table, but to be served everything (appetizer, entrée, and Dessert under an hour for a party of 4 is too fast. Should be maybe 1 1 /2 hour). They need to remember or think about what type of customer do they want? Someone that visits frequently, or jut once or twice?

    The food and service are always good. They change the menu periodically, which can be a good thing, but they took away the one tuna preparation that I really came in for, so that was disappointing. But there is a good variety . Recommend More vegetarian soup and main course options.

    We do love this restaurant in spite of the very high level of noise. It has a warmth & special feeling from the time you arrive. The drinks are excellent, as is everything we've ordered. Both the Lobster & Chinese Chicken Salads are great for lunch. It's all fresh & well-prepared, & you always leave feeling special!

  • They did not prepare sliced filet
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 7/17/2014
    My meat loaf was very good but it took a long time to get served. We ordered a glass of wine and that didn't come for 10 minutes. my wife's sliced filet was ordered medium and 1/2 was rare-raw! The waiter was not to be found. By time he did come to ask how was our food, my wife ate around the raw meat and did not want to send it back because I was almost finished. We said nothing to the waiter but if you order a sliced steak medium he could of seen it was raw. Some one else cleared the table so he didn't see that half the steak was left. I would give this a poor rating!

    This restaurant was all the rave. Why? It is an energetic and vibrant place. The food was good, not great. The thia coconut shrimp was milky and bland with little flavor. The Beet salad was good. It was on the small side and coould have used more of the additives and less of the lettuce. The sliced filet mignon entree was delicious and well seasoned as were the fries. Our waitress was very attentive, friends and informative with regards to the menu. Overall it was an enjoyable experience

  • Over One Hour Wait for Food!
    Nikita1569VIP
    Dined on 7/12/2014
    Unfortunately, the kitchen staff ruined an otherwise lovely brunch experience. We had a brunch reservation and when we arrived we were seated promptly. Our waiter came over right away with bread and took our orders. Drinks arrived quickly. The restaurant was less than half full so they were not busy. The tables on either side of ours were seated after us and received their food before us. Our waiter was very apologetic and comped our drinks for the extremely long wait for our meals. No reason this should have happened as the restaurant was not full or busy. We were told our meals were over one hour late because "the hollandaise sauce kept coming out wrong." Ridiculous excuse from a restaurant supposedly known for its brunch.

    Yup, I said it, best fried chicken ever! Had it all over the country and this was amazing. Double battered and crispy. And best of all, the next day...still crispy! Only down side were the frog legs, way too much garlic - never tasted the frog. Wife's branzino was delicious!

    I have been to Bar Frites before, so knew what to expect. What exceeded my expectations this time was how kindly they handled my reservation chaos. Our party size changed and we ran late (I did call to let them know). They still got us seated quickly and didn't hold anything against us! :-) The food was fabulous, too!

    I've been to BF a few times now and am more and more disappointed on every occasion. My first visit was great but only consisted of one or two appetizers and a few drinks. Seating was cramped and the atmosphere was lively. I was impressed with the choices on the menu and their offering even at the expense of the atmosphere. My second visit here took a turn for the worse-- the service was incredibly slow, the food was average at best and the prices were not reflective of the cuisine. The atmosphere was loud and almost necessitated shouting at my fellow dinner guests. Not to mention, the AC was no where to be felt. A final consideration, the calamari was stale and bland. Definitely will not be going again.

    We came here for Father's Day with my in-laws. My father-in-law, who was born in Paris, ordered Onion Soup. It was gooey with cheese and the onions were at the bottom. Also, it was a pinkish color not the brown broth that you expect French onion soup to have. The Croque Monsieur (ham, cheese on buttered brioche, sandwich did not, in the least, resemble those that I've had in Paris (or Chat Noir in Rockville Center). Here it had mustard instead of butter which gave it a funky taste and the cheese was overflowing (if you like gobs of melted cheese, this is the place for you). The other three dishes were good - Roast Chicken/Mashed potatoes/Spinach (2) and Grilled Chicken Paillard. The service was very good and the ambiance is nice.

    A group from work took the boss out to lunch for her birthday and we couldn't have chosen a better spot! Our server made us laugh and took wonderful care of us. We were able to enjoy a great lunch and get back to work on time. My omelet of the day, Brie and leeks, was delicious: we all thoroughly enjoyed our entrees. Great for groups; the menu is extensive with entrees to suit everyone's taste.

    Bar Frites is my absolute favorite restaurant. The food is wonderful and the service is great. It's my first choice for all of our family's special occassions. We were just there for Mother's Day and we had the frog legs and grilled calamari as starters; the papardelle bolognese, the grilled branzino, and the black seabass......beautiful presentation and delicious. I highly recommend Bar Frites to all my friends and family.
