Fred's at Barneys New York - Madison Avenue
Delicious, great spot for lunchAlways good food, interesting but easy menu, great coffee (although iced drinks are too small), love the scene at lunch5/15/2013 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.

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 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.
