Diner Reviews
  • "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"

  • "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. "

  • "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. "

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."
