Diner Reviews
  • "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 haven't been here in a while but it seems like they moved the tables closer to each other. It was too noisy to hear each other talk."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "My meal was delicious. the French Onion soup was perfect - not too salty and extra cheesey! Most restaurants fail somewhere in this easy to create, difficult to master dish. Bar Frites did it to perfection, I don't know their secret, but I wish they'd spread it around - more people need to learn to do this well. My Filet was cooked EXACTLY the way I asked for it - Medium, and was melt-in-your-mouth perfection. I've been to many great steakhouses and NEVER had a Filet this tasty, well-prepared or this tender! The "Frites" were lovely! Bravo! The Chocolate Mousse was drool-worthy. I loved every bite of this meal and can't wait to come back! Only negative was that it was so loud I couldn't converse comfortably with my companions... "

  • "Waiter was absolutely clueless - three times we asked him for something and he simply "forgot" - he did not know the menu and although the food was outstanding (mussels in pernod and shortribs were extraordinary) - it was a disappointing meal because of the waiter's incompetent service. Waiting for the check was perhaps the most frustrating of all!"

  • "Omelets, salads, sliders,bloody Mary's bread & service ... every aspect of our experience at bar fries was fantastic. We ate brunch outside on this gorgeous Saturday and everyone at our table was thoroughly delighted with our treatment & meal. You know I never mentioned this before and I'm sorry that I didn't, but special kudos to the front desk staff at bar frites. It's here that the entire positive energy begins to set the tone for a delightful dining experience. Cordial, warm, smiles all around really set up the scenario for a lovely meal. Thanks to all. "

  • "Usually love this restaurant. Food consustently great. Last night my credit card was charged twice. Wasn't even the same amount leading me to believe I was charged for someone else's check. I am sure this was a mistake but am not happy with the time I'm going to have to waste to rectify this today. I hope they reverse the charge with no hassle!"

  • "Overall it was a very pleasant dinning experience. The matri'd gave us a great table on both occasions that I've been here. Food overall is exellent if you go for the French style dishes. If you try something italian like the pizza (good sauce too thin crust), or pasta, then they need some training. The pasta with the mushrooms - mushrooms too dry and chewy. Pasta with olive oil and garlic, not enough garlic or olive oil. Steak was cook to order. Calamari was over cooked. What was done well were the salads and appetizers. The tuna tartar w/ avacado was great as was the apple and pear salad."

  • "We went for Brunch and it was very crowded. They stuck as at a table ( 2 diners) between a large party that was split in two. At one table were 4 couples, at the other ( you guessed it) 7 KIDS! Each of these kids( none over 10 years old) got up multiple times and ran around! Both tables kept yelling over our heads! The only saving grace is that we were rushed BIG TIIME! Our reservation was for 12:30 and we expected to have a leisurely brunch, but by 1:00 we had the check! They cleared the plates so fast, I couldn't even get a coffee refill! The food was good but we could've gone to our local diner and it would've been quieter, we could've sat longer and saved $50 in the process! If you want a quiet leisurely brunch go somewhere else!"

  • "My family and I celebrated my fiance's birthday at Bar Frites, and we all had SUCH a great time! Not only was the service wonderful, but the food was absolutely delicious! I had the halibut, and am still thinking about it days after. They played great music, and were so kind to bring us dessert and sing for my fiance's birthday. I would definitely recommend Bar Frites to anyone who wants great French food, and a wonderful experience!"
