    I met my friend for a late (2:30) lunch on the terrace of what was the old Barney Greengras. It still has the same wonderful view, but that is about the only similarity. Freds has the best sour dough bread I have had in ages, even better than in today's San Francisco! Service was professional and friendly. The waiters did not miss a beat when my friend and I requested modifications to our orders. Extra cheese? Done. No tomatoes? Of course. The food was outstanding and cooked perfectly. Everything we had tasted like it had just come from the farmers' market that morning. Freds is a definite keeper!

    The space is very nice. Especially the terrace which has spectacular views but the food is uneven. The first time I was there we ordered two different sandwiches to share. The turkey sandwich was good, the crab club sandwich was boring and tasteless. The second time I came I had the vegan salad which I liked but my friend hated the chicken salad and my neighbor hated the Chinese chicken salad. So the menu and food need work, BTW I asked for fruit as a side to my sandwich and that was delicious.

    Management at Barneys Beverly Hills, in their infinite wisdom, replaced the Barney Greengrass Restaurant with Fred's and ruined one of the finest brunch/lunch experiences in the Beverly Hills/Los Angeles area. I recently chose to have Sunday brunch at the newly opened Fred's and the food was served cold and tasteless and the portions were ridiculously small for the cost, which actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise. On top of that, the staff were poorly trained and completely uninformed as to the offerings, off menu options, and restaurant food policy. Word is spreading even though business is still brisk due to the novelty of the new build-out. As they say, "you call fool all of the people some of the time...."

    If we hadn't made a reservation, the wait would have been an hour. Prices were steep, but the portions were huge. It's enough to split. We sat out on the back patio, and spit the smoked fish platter. It was definitely enough food. I would come back, but would be sure to make a reservation.

    Reservations are a must at Barney's renovated hot spot. Thankfully we had one but the staff was very accommodating to those who did not have a rez -- a sign of great service! Miss the original menu but Fred's menu is refined and pared down considerably so it's much easier to decide what to order. The four of us each liked our meal and the tiramisu was divine.

    Barney's has done a very nice job in remodeling. I thought the food was good, but I liked the Greengrass menu better and the vibe has changed. It's gone from a nice comfortable restaurant to a scene.

    The new restaurant has nice booths and a friendly staff, but the food was very disappointing. I ordered the chicken salad and it was so average. The prices are too high to have such little satisfaction. They are lucky they have such a great patio with a view. I am not running back.

    Barney Greengrass used to be a great place for an all-day breakfast. Not any more. And some of our favorites are no longer on the menu. A request for a breakfast item was denied, not because they didn't have the ingredients (they did), but because that is their "policy." After much haranguing we we prevailed, but alas the item was just so-so and not nearly up to the standards we have come to expect. Also, 1-2 visits to ask how we're doing is quite enough (I believe we had 6). Next time we'll go somewhere else. Very disappointed.

    I had a business lunch here and was treated very nicely. We were not rushed at all and the service was adequate. The menu for lunch is not extensive so we had wraps and frittatas, which everyone seemed to enjoy. All in all it was a nice experience in the heart of Beverly Hills.

    Food was pretty good for smoked fish. My wife did not like the special omelet she said the it was sour and we tried to get the waitress to return it but she was too occupied even though the place was not very busy. The best items seem to be the pancakes and French toast but there are other places to go for that. My smoked fish was good the lox was excellent and the white fish was a bit dry.

    Barney Greengrass may be my favorite lunch spot. Where else in Los Angeles can you find bagels that are flown in daily from New York, and bialys that are a perfect complement to the delicious whitefish salad and nova. It is also fun to people watch the crowd consisting of power agents, celebrities, and ladies who lunch. The service consistently is superb and friendly with Barbara at the helm making sure that everyone (in a sometimes tough crowd) feel like they are her special guest.
