Diner Reviews
  • "very loud atmosphere; tends to be crowded but food makes up for it"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "went with the family and was seated at a table that was really too small for us. Waiter was pleasant and the food was very good. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I would return hoping next time we will get a better table."

  • "One of my favorite places! I have never been to bar frites and had a bad experience. The food is fabulous and the service is supreme! Would recommend to anyone!"

  • "Everything great except noise level. Music too loud resulting in everyone having to talk even louder."

  • "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."

  • "I have been to bar frites several times . . . The menu is varied, the portions a good size and prices reasonable. Nice bistro ambiance. Would recommend for any variety of events, even a simple lunch with a friend."

  • "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!"

  • "First time at Bar Frites. We started off with the mussels in the coconut thia broth, very tasty. This was served with fries, also very tasty. I then had the beef sliders this also came with fries. Nicely presented and very tasty."

  • "I have been here several times. The food is reliable and good quality. Although one time we had a cheese plate served cold. The noise level is unexpectedly loud"

  • "We had a very good night...delicious food and fun place to meet friends. Waiter was very accommodating and came back with the correct food. First time French dip was not rare enough. Second one was delicious! Everyone loved their food."

  • "Great evening with a friend. We opted out of a table to sit at the bar and dine. Fantastic gimlets and cosmos. Delicious tomato soup special. Great grilled octopus. Salads were chilled. Good vibes at the bar. It was not a problem for the host to let us sit st the bar & not a table despite our reservation. Great hospitality and service."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "Yet again, a wonderful meal & all around great experience. Service never waivers. Polite, attentive crew. Great salads and drinks a full measure and chilled to perfection. Personally, I think Bar Frites has the best bar and bar tenders. For a lunch crowd it was a happy, vibrant atmosphere. Thank you."

  • "Sat immediately for a great lunch on a miserable weather day. Started out quietly and then the vibe grew steadily to resemble the Bar Frite we enjoy. Lively, light, delicious, great service from door to check. Salmon sliders a must! Beet salad generous portion not over dressed and very tasty. Margherita pizza was just as ordered, very light on the cheese and x-tra crispy. The best surprise is how great their table bread is. They don't skimp! Water glases refilled often by attentive, polite and well trained bussers. These are some reasons why we're regulars and make this our "go to" place."

  • "The dishes we ordered were all terrific. The unusual spices and compbinations made for a great dinner. Just because it's family style, if you have any sort of appetite be sure to order at least 1 dish per person. If you don't get a chance to have a drink at the bar, be certain to ask the waiter for a small bowl of the bar nuts."

  • "After several visits over the past year, I find Bar Frites a consistently very good bistro that has a huge following to prove it; BEST French fries!!!! Really good creme brulee!!! Everything francais you have always wanted and prepared to a higher standard!"

  • "We dined here recently and were impressed and will definitely return. The menu is wonderful with many great selections amd it was difficult to choose. From drinks to appetizers to dessert there were no disappointments! The sevice is quite good and the waiter timed his visits to our table perfectly, I had the braised short rib and the food portions are generous and were absolutely delicious. The ambience is very french bistro and is warm and welcoming. If there is anything to complain about; it is that reservations on the weekend are hard to come by unless you book at least a month in advance. We dined very early to get in and when we left it was not full so I am not sure why you cannot get a time after 5 pm or before 9. Will return!!"

  • "Greeted cheerfully and sat immediately. Busy night. I had 2 great cosmos. My partner had 2 martinis they make the best drinks. Chicken pillard was perfect as was the tuna salad. Didn't feel rushed even though they were full out busy and on a long wait. This is my go to restaurant when ever I want a guaranteed good meal & cocktail."

  • "Ive been to this restaurant many times. The food and service are always awesome. The only thing negative I can say is, the tables are very close together, so when it is busy you get bumped into a lot. But I prefer that over a restaurant that's empty and quiet."

  • "Love this place. Was here 2 nights in a row this week. Salad Nicoux was prepared petfectly as was the chicken piyard (sorry for the spelling). Best bar around. Blood orange martini is sic, in the best use of the word. Attentive servers refilled water all night. Alway noisy. Hate sitting next to tables w/ children. Great outdoor space. U need reservations! I return as often as I can. Fairly priced for the experience, neighborhood & clientèle."

  • "This is a pretty good place for Sunday Brunch. But somehow they can't seem to get the orders quite right. We've been there several times and inevitably we have to send the food back because there was a mistake. It's good when it comes, but we'll have to think twice about going back."

  • "Always enjoy it here, including the service. Only disappointment - the mussels were very, very small . I remember them as being much larger & better a while back."
