Fred's at Barneys New York - Madison Avenue
Right Said Fred'sAnd everything was right. Food, wine, serviceplace - I'll definitely be going back. AJ6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA New York favorite for yearsFred's is the quintessential casual conteporary chic luncheon destination without peer. Food, ambiance and service are top notch. I've been dining there for years and it just gets better and better.
The menu changes enough to be adventuresome and dynamic, yet the continuation of long-standing favorites is ideal.
Fred's is also terrific for dinner when you're looking for a destination with fine food, ambiance and vibe, yet want to be able to have a more focused and intimate rapport with your company. You'll be able to hear each other just fine.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMYou'll love Fred'sHave never had a bad meal at Fred's. everything has always been perfect.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a nice place to eatWe always go here, but have trouble with reservations. Always lost some how until I used open table. Foods great. Pricy. French fries are the best. Fun place to go. Nice to our kids.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMixed reviews for foodMy friend and I split two dishes -- Chopped Chicken Salad (which was delicious) and a Turkey Club Sandwich (which was super dry and pretty bad). Ambience was nice so I'm willing to give it a second try, but was disappointed that one of our dishes was not good at all.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our third time atThis is our third time at the restaurant, and it was superb.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFred's is always a treat forFred's is always a treat for lunch.

Assume Mr. Lee is planning a renovation, as the space is in dire need of a lift.
Staff is always welcoming.....a leisurely delicious dinner.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was actually betterThe food was actually better this day than others and I am a regular. A bit disappointed. We were there early for lunch around 11:45 and it wasn't busy but the waiter wasn't attentive initially until we said something. Our guest were going to the theater. Once he knew he was accommodating.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFred'sI arrived on time for my reservation but was not allowed to be seated without my entire party being present. I think that if you make a reservation for a table you should be given your table when you arrive at the designated time and not have to wait outside until the remainder of your party arrives.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe idled and sat for n2 hoursWe idled and sat for n2 hours and never felt like our table was taking too long--we were.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTHe Best Sunday Brunch inTHe Best Sunday Brunch in the City.

Great looking crowds, efficient service - quite a scene. We've just relicated our offices a block away and will be back frequently!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe hostess at lunch, Nicki,The hostess at lunch, Nicki, was terrific, and went out of her way to accommodate our table request.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWill be back with the sameWill be back with the same Group in two weeks.
It is our Meeting place.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMany people having a lunchMany people having a lunch break, Very popular place4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBus stop or restaurant?Table was not ready when we arrived on time. Was "directed" by militant hostess to "wait out on the bench". Is this a bus stop or a restaurant? Get rid of the obnoxious hostess! If I wasn't on a date (and she really wanted to have lunch at Barney's" I would have told the hostess to get lost, and gone somewhere else for lunch. Unfortunately she must be a fixture there as my friend said "she's always like that."
Waited 15 mins for table. Really? You can't keep a reservation? Don't take them if you're not going to keep them.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI had read all the reviewsI had read all the reviews of Fred's and was especially worried about the service issues. My daughter and I went there for dinner with a 6:30 reservation. We had a WONDERFUL time. We were seated on time, the service was excellent, and the food was fantastic. I had the ravioli and she had chicken soup. We split the cold seafood appetizer. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience and will go back for sure next time we are in New York.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a dependable eateryThis is a dependable eatery with a very accomodating staff and the food is very good. Beware that they do not have a childrens menu per se - they say they can do childrens items but when we ordered "chicken fingers and fries" the portion was huge and it was $18. So if you bring kids that won't eat anything else, be prepared to split that! Since many times you would be there with children, it would be helpful if they did have a couple of items just for kids. Good place for lunch with a friend while shopping.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMIts all about the "scene".Its all about the "scene". But you do get good food along with the show. Great Bloody Marys.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOpen Table is the way to go!So glad we booked through Open Table. A member of our party was a few minutes late and they would not allow us to sit down and I thought the special table I had booked would be gone but I'm sure because we booked through you they held the spot.
Thank you!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great. Eclectic menu,Always great. Eclectic menu, great service, fun scene.2/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways lively and consistentlyAlways lively and consistently really wonderful food2/6/2013 12:00:00 AMArrogant front deskMade a 1:45 PM reservation for lunch Tuesday - requested a table against the outside Madison Avenue wall per usual. The hostess refused to give us a table as requested (said it had been requested by someone else) and put us behind the hostess station surrounded by babies and prams and two feet from the servers' station. She made no apologies and even as other tables opened up, she refused to set them up for us. While the food is heavenly, the management of patrons clearly has no regard for neighbors and regulars who dress well, behave well and order generously (wine, etc.). High margin, neighborhood customers deserve respect, but apparently that's not a priority here. Love the food, hate the attitude!2/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy goto for weekend brunchMy goto for weekend brunch IV going to that part of town. Never disappoints and food is always consistently good.
