    This restaurant was new to me and a nice find. One can actually have a conversation over decent food. The menu is varied with several choices one doesn't usually see on a menu.

  • SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE

    One of my worst dining experiences ever in NYC. I took my girlfriend's mom here for her birthday. Service was unbelievably slow. Half an hour to get an appetizer. They ran out of my entree and didn't tell me until they served everyone else. At which point they didn't even offer something else until I went and found the manager. We ordered the desserts and two came out but we didn't get any silverware. The third dessert which should of had a candle came out late with the candle but the wrong dessert. Then my espresso came out as coffee, they forgot my the cappuccino but they got one decaf coffee right. All in all quite the failure. Never going back and you should go either.

    Server was friendly but took her time getting to us despite the place being only half full -- surprising at 8pm on a Saturday. And apparently the bartender was too busy (again, it was not crowded) to check on a particular wine for me so I had to get my 2nd choice. Steak bites appetizer was delicious -- very tender and the sauce was great. Unfortunately we had to rush through it because our main course came out too soon. (The waiter didn't understand why I wasn't pleased.) We got the crab cake and 3-cheese mac 'n' cheese; both were very good but portions were on the small size. They looked more like small plates than entrees. Creme brulee had a nice crust but the inside was barely warm. Not the worst meal, but room for improvement.

    Very comfortable neighborhood bar. Went to celebrate birthday with friend and shared numbers of the appetizers -- all good. Especially the lamb chop lollipops. Wide beer selection. Definitely a keeper.

    The grilled salmon was served raw, which is not how this dish should be served so we had to send it back. The crab cake entree felt like an appetiser as it was so small. The crumble was nice. Disappointing overall however.

    We wanted to like Barley and Grain, but it was at best an average experience (2-3 stars). We live in the neighborhood and were looking for a tasty, casual meal. The food was good, but the service was quite poor. Our waiter was totally uninterested in us and the other tables around us (at the table next to us, the guests actually stood up to finally flag him down to get a check.) For a casual meal, I'm fine with average service that doesn't impact the meal one way or another, but our waiter was just so uninterested that it felt like we were putting him out by eating there. (He also told us, very unapologetically, that they were out of numerous items on the menu, which is unfortunate given that it's a pretty small menu to begin with.)

    This is a definite whiskey bar. Don't go if you want a great vodka martini. The food was fresh but they ran out of some side dishes. How could a restaurant run out of food at 8:30. The staff was cordial and on the whole it was a pleasant night.

    Best thing about this restaurant is their sometimes quirky dishes. However, standards like skate are also terrific. Nice change from usual west side fare. Can end up more expensive than you think, though......Staff is pleasant and accomodating.
