  • "Transported to a cool bistro in Le Marais, beautiful design with great food to match. Diverse crowd and great wine list made for a memorable dinner. Service was welcoming and attentive......food delicious, interesting and full of subtle flavor. Save room for the warm tart, really nice!! Will return soon."

  • "I like Barawine and have been here several times. The food is good; the service is always friendly. If you go for brunch, be ready. There was a DJ and while the music selection was good, we couldn't hear each other. We had made a reservation, but were asked if it was okay if we were seated at the communal table. We said it was fine, but it was a huge mistake. The table is wide, which is nice as it allows room for your plates and glassware, but couple that with the sheer volume of the music, we had to scream to be heard and even then, only one person could hear as you had to shout specifically at them. If you want to feel like you are at a club, come for brunch. Otherwise, just come here for dinner. It is very good."

  • "This was my 2nd time coming to Barawine and once again, my expectations were met. I actually ate dinner this time around and it was amazing! Mushroom risotto and corn and jalapeno soup...delish! Can't wait to go back and try some brunch :-)"

  • "I am pleased to see all the new wonderful restaurants that have opened in Harlem and I can't wait to try them all. This one needs a second look because for brunch it was nothing special. The noise level was out of site, the service was ok. Sunday brunch and one wait person. There was a party in one of the rooms that seemed to take up most of the staff. So another look is called for. But I like to have a reservation honored for the time it was made and this was not done."

  • "They ran out of eggs and potatoes during the Sunday BRUNCH shift. They forgot our order and and made no attempt to rectify the situation and were rude and negligent for the rest of the service."

  • "What a lovely newcomer to the neighborhood! Great food in a lovely setting. Everything was delicious and the place beautiful. Finally this area has a place that has the trendy downtown vibe, interesting menu and winelist -- all mixed with a nice bit of warm and casual neighborhood touch."

  • "It's my second time there. Barawine has an intimate romantic setting and the service is great. The food is also great but the portions are a bit small. They also have an amazing wine list!"

  • "My family and I had made a reservation for Brunch here this past Sunday - What a great spot! The place was quiet (we were early, around 11:30AM). The ambiance was wonderful - clean & classy - and all the windows allow for great natural lighting! Food was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed the bottomless mimosas! I definitely recommend for a fun brunch spot for friends or family."

  • "Went there to celebrate Vday and it was awesome. At first, the staff seemed a bit frazzled bc of the amount of ppl in the restaurant, but once we were seated it was all smooth sailing. We experienced a fixed menu that was absolutely delicious. Their french onion soup and lamb chops were great. They also have a vast selection of wines cheap- expensive that we indulged in. Overall loved it and hope to be back soon!"

  • "Barawine was fabulous. The restaurant has a terrific decor and the ambience could not have been better. I am a French speaker, so discovering a restaurant where all the staff are from France and where I can recreate sensations and impressions that were once reserved just for restaurants in Paris...what can I say? This was a true find. I had the confit and accompanied it with a bottle of Muscadet and was enchanted. If you are in Harlem and looking for something special, look no further, Barawine is a destination worthy of your dining dollars!"

  • "I was meeting some friends and I suggested this place since it's in my 'hood. As I walked in, I really loved the atmosphere. The manager took my coat, and was very friendly. I decided to sit at the communal table/bar since I got there early and was a little displeased. The bartender barely even acknowledged me....I can't stand that! Offer me a menu, ask me what I want, how about "hi"...something. After about 5-10 awkward minutes, I finally waved her down to order a glass of wine. That was really my only annoying part of the night. Great times with great friends over 2 bottles of wine, we ordered Raclette which was very filling for 3 and it was supposed to be for 2. Service was good, crowd diverse, it's beautiful in there. I'll be back :-)"

  • "Three of us went here for a birthday dinner and couldn't have been happier to find it. The atmosphere is charming, very european. From the moment the French host welcomed us, to the wine suggestions and delicious food, we were impressed with the attentive service and friendly atmosphere. Will definitely return."

  • "If you're looking for a reasonably priced but excellent meal with great wine and outstanding service you should trek up to Barawine. My wife and I let our server pick our glasses of wine with our meal and they were spot on. The food was very well done French Bistro fare, sure you can get better at a couple of other places, but for the price this was awesome. The specialty dessert was one of the best things I've ever eaten, so definitely go for that. A small thing, but super important, the wait staff was great at spacing the courses of the meal, so we weren't rushing or waiting for too long. Just a nice extra to something already great."

  • "Barawine is beautiful and we received a warm welcome. It has a gorgeous bar and spacious tables. Unfortunately at 9:00 on an unusually warm winter night the place was dead, 2 people seated at the bar and only 1 other table was occupied when we arrived. While dining only 1 other table was seated. Despite the lack patrons the service was only fair. The menu is very limited on everything besides wine and they were out of the only starter i was interested in - the tuna tartar. We ordered the Brarawine salad & the macaroni to start, and for entree, salmon and filet. Both extremely ordinary and unremarkable. Tiramisu for dessert - this was pre-prepared and had a slight refrigerator taste to it. For a $200 check, we were disappointed overall."

  • "Barawine has great ambience, decor, very warm and inviting. Very nice bar and separate dining room. Housed in a historic building where Malcolm X lived. The wine list has a nice variety, reasonably priced wines, especially French. Wines by the glass a generous pour. Food was excellent- especially the Corn Serrano chile soup (nice heat) and Quinoa seaweed salad. Fish was perfectly cooked. Mushroom jus' with hanger steak very tasty. Two vegetarian entree options, both fantastic. We were there for dinner, but I hear the weekend brunch is very good. Prices are very reasonable and staff very friendly. Overall a great dining experience."

  • "I've been to Barawine twice now, and both times I have been so impressed with the food, drinks and service. From the minute I walked in the door, the staff greeted me with smiles, took my coat, and inquired about my day. The first night I hung at the bar with some friends, we stayed for 6 hours! The vibe was fun, and the DJ was great. we could still hear each other talk which was nice too. I took a friend there for dinner, and the back room is comfortable with an upscale feel. The wait staff never leaves you without bread or refilling your glass for long! Just lovely, can't wait to go back!"

    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "This was my third visit to Barawine and it was the first on a week night. My previous visits had been in the summer and early fall and I ate outside both times. Entre took an incredibly long time (45 minutes?) and the waiter seemed a little discombobulated. Huge confusion about what was in one of the desserts: peaches? pears? apricots? Some confusion about a change that didn't happen in the menu? We were confused. The manager came around several times to ask how things were, but that didn't seem to help much. My sense is that they know what good service is supposed to be, but haven't implemented an infrastructure to ensure that it happens consistently. That is key to keeping customers coming back."

  • "I moved to a building a block away over a year ago and watched as the space that became Barawine was transformed into an absolute gem. I is one of my favorite restaurants and drinking spots and I go often. I am always treated as a good friend and most of the people remember my name including its charming owner Fabrice. Highly recommend it. Bob Stebbings"

  • "We went late, at around 10pm. Loved the food but found it hard to speak. Ceiling is low and noise becomes a little above being bearable. It worked ok for us because by 10:30 there were less people and then we were able to understand each other without having to shout. The food was really good. Loved the raw meats selection, the entrees, and the wine. Their selection of wines was really good and there were options at all price ranges."

  • "Barawine was the perfect spot for a girls night out dinner. Our waitress was patient and accommodating as we deliberated over the menu while catching up. One friend asked for a "cozy" drink and again the waitress was superb with her recommendation and sample of their seasonal warm mulled red wine. It was delicious and paired well with my hanger steak. The crowd was diverse and lively. The ambiance is warm and inviting. Although the space isn't big the decor keeps it light and not crowded."

  • "The Barawine restaurant is equisitely designed and leads you into high expectations when you enter the restaurant. However, if your a native New Yorker you realize when you see the menu they still need refinement. Brunch is very minimized and not really a full course brunch. They are best for lunch/dinner entrees. The staff are very sweet but not well trained. There errors are quite simply due to poor training, but they are hardworking and earnest. Overall, everyone was very pleasant but they must learn to pick up the pace, serve food hot not lukewarm and look at some menu adjustments. Yet, we had a very good time."

  • "Dissapointing. The appetizers came quickly, soup maybe warm...cold by soup standards, Mac was too hot , couldn't eat for ten minutes. . An hour later, we got our entrees which were excellent, but had the waiter not noticed us looking at our phones we would have left. Different pace of things in Harlem, still getting used to it. None the less, I may give it another try cause the lamb was seriously good."
