Fred's at Barneys New York
Great Date NightMy second time here, this time on the terrace. Food and service are excellent. A great date night out.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy ownly complaint is theMy ownly complaint is the volume of the music. We went to an early dinner, we were the only inside table occupied, and the music was piped in at a level at which we could not carry on a conversation. I asked for the music to be turned down, but it was still loud. I did not bother to ask again, since it was obvious the staff was playing it for themselves, and not for the patrons.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI did not think that a retailerI did not think that a retailer would have such a nice place overlooking the city. The selection was great. Outstanding wine list. It was hard to pick what to eat. The food was excellent. I would love to go back next time in Chicago and just have a salad. As we ate our lunch a lot of customers were having salads. I almost wanted one to go they were so big. Next time. We will be back.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways one of our favoriteAlways one of our favorite restaurants in a great location. The food is great, always hard to decide what to get. Service is top notch. It's a hidden gem that no one knows about!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun sceneFun neighborhood scene, great people watching, excellent salads on menu, and outdoor patio is awesome (though not many tables)5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat brunch near shoppingHad a great brunch at Fred's. I ordered off the brunch menu and was pleasantly surprised with the amount of food I got. Salad, pastries, mimosa and entree with sides. I felt $32 was very reasonably priced!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFred's is always my favoriteFred's is always my favorite go-to place for lunch. It has a vibrant, bright atmosphere and the food is always fresh, delicious and good healthy choices.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMChicken Milanese - AWESOME!As usual, the chicken milanese is one of my favorite things to eat in the city. This menu item never disappoints and I would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch just for this menu item.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a great experience.It was a great experience. I really loved the ambiance and the service was great!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing octopusI love it when we get great service but I leave not knowing the server''s name. I like to be left to my own conversation with the people I came to dine with. The seared octopus appetizer is worth another trip for sure. Also they cured the salmon in my appetizer on site and it was to die for. The wine list was shorter than I was used to and I loved it because they were affordable but someone had really culled the list and I was happy with both the red and white we ordered. Terrific desserts also. Valet service was a dream!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMalways a favorite! great menualways a favorite! great menu and everything is good.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh and Artfully PresentedHad a very nice 3 Course lunch during Chicago Chefs week. We enjoyed each course well prepared and presented, fresh and tasty. My dessert was not so great the Itallian potato flour cake with mixed berries . The cake was really dry and tasteless and the mixed berries consisted of ONE strawberry cut up and 6 blueberries!!! However, other than the disappointing dessert it was an overall good dining experience.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMDifficult to find. Above aDifficult to find. Above a ladies apparal shop and not signs.
Food was delicious.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWhilst shopping at Barney's,Whilst shopping at Barney's, I stopped up at Fred's for lunch on the recommendation of the sales associate. A little hesitant wondering how a restaurant in a clothing store compared to the many other options in the area, I gave it a shot. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The pizza was delicious and the chicken milanese was excellent. The service was also what you would expect coming from Barney's. I think I'll have to try dinner at Fred's soon.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI keep coming back!The perfect place for lunch!! Back for the third time in recent months. I love taking out of town guests for the contemporary design, views and really good food.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet, Elegant DinnerThis is a "hot spot" at lunchtime, but if you are looking for a quiet, elegant, restaurant for dinner, don't overlook Fred's. My wife and I new to the city and recently dined here for the second time. Both visits exceeded our expectations. The food is quite good. We've had the pizza, pastas, salads, and desserts. The service is outstanding. Couldn't have been more pleased.3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBeing located in Barneys,Being located in Barneys, you expect a lot from Freds. Well, they don't disappoint. Everything about this place exceeded my expectations. The food, service, and ambience were all outstanding. I'll definitely be coming back!!!2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe LOVE Fred'sFred's never disappoints. My GF and I dine regularyly. The food is always top notch and the staff is always friendly. We always leave with a pleasant experience.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is great, staff is even betterThe thing some restaurants don't get is that you can have the best food, but if your service is terrible people won't come back. The management at Fred's gets this. The food is great, but it's the exceptional service that keeps us coming back.2/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLiving in the neighborhood,Living in the neighborhood, Fred's has become our go-to spot for a bite to eat. We always enjoy our dining experience and the friendly staff are a pleasure as well. If you haven't been to the top of Barney's venture up, you won't be disappointed!2/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe Love Fred'sWe always have a good experience at Fred's. Everything from the food to the service is always top notch.2/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, as usualMy girlfriend and I stopped in before heading to a movie and had a great meal; as always. As usual, the staff was friendly. We always enjoy our time at Fred's and this time was no different. I wish I could say the same thing about the movie afterwards, but I guess that's what I get for letting her pick. At least I got a good meal before my nap.1/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFred's: Barney's hidden gemAfter being a loyal Barney's shopper for years, I had never had the pleasure of eating at Fred's; however, on Saturday night my girlfriend and I decided to give it shot. I am glad we did. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent. We split the prosciutto and arugula pizza as an appetizer. I had the risotto with lobster and scallops. The risotto was cooked perfectly! My girlfriend had the salmon which she said was excellent. I wish I could give you my opinion on it, but she didn't share. During our dinner the manager (blonde girl) who stopped by to ask how everything was also very pleasant. I wish we had made the trip up to the 6th floor before. We will definitely be back!1/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSophisticated dining in ChicagoFred's is a beautiful sophisticated restaurant with a wonderful city view that is located on the top floor of Barney's. We were there on a very cold night and the fireplace was just what we needed. We had a very nice meal and the service was attentive. Fred's met our expectations.1/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe set up and ambiance wereThe set up and ambiance were pretty, and the patrons were sophisticated. Our server took extra miles when my friend asked the approximate calories of a dish in special menu. Spa Tini, a recommended cocktail tasted great! Everything was fabulous except the food.....unfortunately. Both French Onion Soup and Spinach, goat cheese salad lacked in flavor..... My tongue likes food when not overpowered by seasonings, by which I mean for majority of the people in the world would not taste anything but the taste of veggie and cheese..... Oh well, despite the food did not meet my satisfaction level, I do not mind going back there to enjoy the ambiance. Maybe for wine with cheese!1/19/2013 12:00:00 AMImprovedThe restaurant was busy but not crowded on a Saturday night. Service was friendly, prompt and attentive. The food was better than it has been on previous visits. A vegan pureed broccoli soup was truly outstanding, full-flavored and served piping hot. The spaghetti and meatballs was surprisingly good, with a fresh-tasting sauce and small, tender meatballs. Chocolate cake was served with a real scoop of ice cream rather than the microscopic portion encountered in some other places. The wine list is very limited, but there are a few reasonably priced good choices.12/15/2012 12:00:00 AMWhat a vey pleasant surprizeWhat a vey pleasant surprize for us. Our first time at Fred's. We enjoyed the food and the service.
We will definitely return.12/11/2012 12:00:00 AM
