Great for Group Brunchchampagne brunch great deal. fabulous food, especially the hummus. had a great time with 6 girlfriends6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and the service wereThe food and the service were as great as always. Brunch on a busy Saturday afternoon was extremely crowded and the noise level unfortunately a little too loud to have a comfortable conversation.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat combination of foodMy wife and I wanted to enjoy food from some of our favorite travel places . Their food is a great blend of Greece , Turkey , Italy , Morocco and other surrounding countries . If you want a nice sampling of this kind of cuisine , this is a find . Most restaurants only serve country specific cuisine . Service was attentive and wine list was good . Tables are rather close to each other and can feel cramped when busy . Overall , a very positive experience .6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat desertsI love this bread the give you with your meal and the deserts are to die for. I keep coming back to eat here. Everything is so perfectly seasoned and the atmosphere is just perfect. If you just want some romantic time, and better service, try to beat the dinner crowd and go early in the evening.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat tasting foodGreat tasting hummus. The flat bread that comes with the hummus is delicious. The charred octopus was so tender and tasty. The gnocchi were cooked to perfection. The only issue was that the server didn't realize that my friend and I weren't sharing entrees, so there was a short delay with my gnocchi. I'd definitely go back.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly ManhattanThere is a certain mystique and energy to a real Manhattan gourmet meal. Just go to Barbounia and with the money you save, you can buy a Ferrari!!!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood/Service was great - RestaurantFood/Service was great - Restaurant was super warm. Hope they figure out how to get their air conditioning working properly.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Mezzes ever...Four of us went here for a birthday celebration and we were very happy that we did. The appetizers were outstanding. The selection of all 5 dips were a bargain and they were most delicious. The iron skillet shrimp was a big hit ordered with a side of cauliflower or many other side selections. Great desserts. Can't wait to go back.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Neighborhood FavoriteBarbounia remains my favorite neighborhood spot, to which I bring friends and family alike. Everyone I bring there just loves it as much as I do. Superb!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMquick changes save the dayWe arrived on time for our early reservation, but our first server was basically inept. Our drink order then got confused, and he still charged us for the first drink he took away . Another server was very helpful and did a great job (and got an excellent tip for doing so ). Very uncomfortable temperature existed within the restaurant , unbearably so. My wife mentioned this to the manager , who quickly closed the open front windows and turned on the AC. The Manager was a perfect gentleman, He was very gracious and genuinely interested in improving our dining experince and ensuring satisfaction , showed great professionalism.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a light dinnerLove the mezzes and the appetizers here. Our favorite is an order of the trio of tzatziki, roasted eggplant and hummus with the fabulous bread. This time we also enjoyed the merguez sausage, hamachi and grilled octopus. The wine list is varied with many excellent mid-range choices. I have also been here for brunch, which I would highly recommend.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMa little too loud/noisy fora little too loud/noisy for a casual lunch (most people do booze brunch on saturdays which makes things pretty hectic inside). overall food was good and portions were healthy.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI personally really likedI personally really liked the food and the service but found the restaurant too dark, the tables too close together and the noise level a bit much.

Food is excellent... and great service.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Place to Brunch!!!!I love the scene, the food and the service! The staff are friendly and fund! Your glass is never left empty! The scene is excellent for people watching, yet private enough to focus on the conversation at your table only. The chief creates "finger licking good" dishes!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent, waiterFood was excellent, waiter did not know a thing about the wine list, when questioned about a particular bottle of wine, he did not know and the wine steward was not in. That was frustrating.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great spot! Try theWhat a great spot! Try the octopus appetizer!
