    I was visiting from California and was thrilled that my google search for best burgers in soho led me to Burger and Barrel. The burgers were moderate in size and I really liked that. Something tasty, reasonably priced and a sophisticated size. I didn't want something overly large and sloppy!

    I had a great time at dinner on Thursday. I am so glad that I made a reservation in advance. The restaurant was completely packed when I walked in, but I didn't have to wait for my table. Everything my date and I ordered was amazing, specifically the southern fried chicken and the pork ribeye with bok choy. I can't wait to come back and try the rest of the menu.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 4/12/2014
    I had the special Hemingway burger being made for a few weeks in April, and it was delicious. They did an excellent job recreating a recipe and creating spices that are no longer produced from scratch. The burger was cooked perfectly so that every bite was oozing with juicy goodness. The service was just as great as the food. I made a reservation for 2, only to find that a 3rd friend was showing up. The restaurant was packed, but the hostess was able to get an extra chair for us. The waiter was attentive: our water glasses were kept full, orders were taken quickly, and the food was served promptly. We also tried the cabernet sauvignon on draft, which was good & reasonably priced. I'll be going back sometime to try their normal menu.

    We had a great dinner at Burger and Barrel! I had the veggie burger which was very good. My BF had the classic burger had the classic burger which he loved and said that the meat was very well seasoned. The fries were also very good. My only real complaints were the music and service. Our server was "breathing down our necks" for a drink order before our butts even touched the chair but then disappeared for 20 minutes. The place wasn't crowded so I didn't understand her inattentiveness. She recommended a beer that they didn't have and then when we reordered didn't bring our drinks. We couldn't find her at all after we got our food and had to ask someone else for condiments and more drinks.

    Dined on 3/16/2014
    Another vote for the bash burger and I'm not a huge bacon fanatic. Burger is cooked perfectly and even with all of the extravagant toppings, the meat still shines through. Went for brunch on a Sunday and typically the rosemary tots are only on the lunch and dinner menu but the server was kind enough to ask the kitchen to make some for our table which was much appreciated. Get the tots- they are that good. I think this place is overlooked for brunch - they do typical brunch dishes along with their namesake burgers and it's not crowded at all which means no wait and good service. Look forward to coming back when the next burger craving hits.

    I've been here numerous times because I love the Bash Burger. On Friday night, brought some friends who were in from out of town. Service was so bad I was embarrassed I recommended this place. We waited 20 minutes for someone to first come over and bring us water. it then took at least 10 minutes for someone to come over to order drinks The hostress ended up taking drink orders because there was still no server in sight. Finally a waitress came by and said she would be taking care of us because the waiter whose table it was was too busy with big party of 20 next to us. Dididnt believe that and totally unacceptable. The burger was very good as always, but the service debacle left us all disappointed and hard to recommend to other friends.

    The service could have been a little more friendly.

That wasn't great. Food was good, service - eh.

    This place had *incredible* fried chicken. I ordered the bash burger that was delicious, but I was definitely jealous of the people who ordered the fried chicken. The chicken lollipops, the raviolo, and the beet salad were also highlights. Lowlights include the caesar salad (which is kind of a deconstructed take on it) and the dessert. We ordered from the fixed price menu and tried both the toffee cake (super dry) and banana cream pie (nothing special) offered. Wish we'd looked at the regular dessert menu, the apple fritters smelled great. Server was nice, but it felt like she was rushing us out. She also was very difficult to hear and it was NOT because the noise level was overpowering.

    I was very excited to try this place, as I am a huge fan of the sister restaurant, Lure Fishbar, and because the brunch menu looked fantastic. Unfortunately, upon receiving our food, we were extremely disappointed. The baked eggs were sitting in a lukewarm soup of white beans, the egg whites not fully cooked. The duck hash had pools of duck fat just sitting beneath it, and lacked any sort of seasoning (which was needed). The shared truffle fries were the highlight of the meal.

    I've been in NYC for a couple of months now and have already had a couple of really good burgers, at places such as Go Burger, Bare Burger, Walter Foods and Candle79. So expectations were high when we went to Burger and Barrel - we were not disappointed. The Bash Burger just blew my socks off, the onion and bacon jam and the truffle fries took it to another level!

    This is a great place to grab a casual, cozy brunch in the neighborhood. The restaurant starts getting crowded around 1pm, but before that you won't have much trouble getting a table. The breakfast sandwiches in particular are delicious - I would recommend the B&B BLT. The service is bit on the slow side, but attentive nonetheless.

    Tjhois was the first time I went to Burger and Barrel for dinner. I have been for lunch a few times. From the reception at the hostess stand to the friendly bartender and the server when seated for dinner, I truly enjoyed the dining experience. I went for the burgers and beer and enjoyed both. My companion and I both selected the lamb burger (I had sweet potato fries, he had a salad) served in the right portions and a nice selection of beers that encouraged exploration. There was also wine by the barrel with decent selections, as well. Food is fresh and flavorful, service is good and ambiance is relaxed and welcoming. The rest of the menu is interesting, but this is my go-to for burgers and beer, as it should be.

  • Good but not great burger
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/1/2014
    For a place that fashions itself a burger joint, I'd say that something was left to be desired. Great appetizers, great cocktails, friendly staff but mediocre burger at best. Plus they serve the burger cut in half which in my opinion is the equivalent of serving a sandwich with the crust cutoff. Only should be done if the patron is under 10 years old or specifically asked for it. Next time I go back, I'm ordering 2 meatball apps as my main main course. They were delicious. Overall had a good experience and would recommend to friends.

    Go hungry! You will want to eat every bite! I had heard about these burgers for a couple years, and was really excited to get to try this experience for my friends birthday. The Bash Burger lived up to the hype. Six of us enjoyed the Bash Burger and one enjoyed the Lamb Burger, another crowd pleaser. The drinks were great and we shared two small plates (the mac n' cheese and the chicken lollipops) between the seven of us. We were more than full! The service was great, and prompt and we did not feel rushed even after spending two hours there. One MINOR negative anyone had was the dim lighting near the bathroom. Many of us did have interesting/funny stories surrounding our bathroom adventure - so it was not a detriment to the evening.

    It took 40 minutes for our first drink order to be served. The place wasn't busy and it was adequately staffed. Why do they think it's okay to serve cold onion rings? You would think a medium rare burger would at least have a little pink inside of it, after all it is a burger place. I've been to B and B many times, but it has failed the last two times. I will never ever be going back.

    the chicken lollipops are the best, the chef fashions an unexpected portion of the wing by removing the large bone and leaving the tender meat to crisp on the outside and lather with mildly spicy buffalo sauce. lots of great items to choose from, the burgers are on point and executed as expected from a nation burger winner.

    Went here for lunch with a group of 4. We had reservations and were seated at a random table at the end of the bar. We were in the way of people at the bar and seemed to be forgotten about by the waiter. We got our water right away, but were never asked if we wanted to order drinks. I like a good beer with my burgers and was slightly disappointed by the small beer list. The burger was amazing and was brought out quickly after ordering. The great food made up for the slow start!

    A friend and I went here for brunch. The service was pretty good, the food was good and had a decent selection. One bad thing: the "brunch special" only went from 10am-12pm. Not really acceptable for a Saturday brunch, especially since they kept using the brunch menu past that time (instead of a lunch menu)
