I'm a huge fan! Greeted by
I'm a huge fan! Greeted by Cliff and seated immediatly. The restaurant was jammed even at 1pm. The food was excellent, served with the changes that we requested, it was fresh & served in a timely fashion. My water glass was kept full all throughout my visit. All the staff was attentive, management checked back to be sure all was well. No complaints.
Been coming here since it opened and I have only had very good experiences. Their bar scene is fun too. Great mixred drinks, knowledgable mixologists, friendly crowd. Good eats and staff... Thanks ...

Truly a must go to restaurant!
Servers are always so friendly and helpful. Our waiter brought over wine samples to help us order.
I come here all the time for drinks, dinner, brunch, what ever!

Great all around menu with
Great all around menu with choices for everyone from breakfast dishes to pastas to steaks and sea food. Very noisy but the food is always top shelf. Service is very good too. If you can take to noise and crowding you won't be disappointed.

Good fish. Waitress friendly.
Had the Bronzino. It was well prepared and fresh. Filets not whole fish, however.

The food and service are consistently good. However, the overwhelming noise level makes dinner conversation quite difficult. Ali, the need to turn over tables for the next reservations, tends to make service a bit rushed. We were not able to linger over our cocktails because the waiter kept appearing pressing us to order.

Always a great experience and amazing food. Never had a bad meal.

This was the first time I dines at Bar Frites and I loved everything about it. The food was amazing and so was the peach Bellini. The service was great and the total ambience of the place is very energetic. I will definitely be going there again often.

A great addition to LI dining scene
And it's definitely a scene! Even though the food is great, it's definitely a "see and be seen place". Everything we had was top notch and the menu offers something for everyone. No place quite like it in the area. Large outdoor patio is a nice option if you want a more quiet setting. Be sure to make a reservation. Even on a Tuesday night at 7:00, it was packed. Only criticism is the prices are a bit high, but that's to be expected considering the location.

Where the pretty things are
This is THE place to be at the moment. Lots of pretty people. Food is great. Nice drink menu. Service can be spotty, probably because place is always busy. Main criticism is prices are a bit high for a "bistro" and cocktails are too small for $12

love the steak tartare, beef carpaccio salad, crab cakes, lobster,. don't love the open shrimp ravioli, that was a little bland. love going there

A Great Place to Eat
Bar Frites is a wonder bistro with a great menu. The food is delicious and the service is attentive without being overly solicitous. It's great for lunch or dinner and I recently went for brunch which was also wonderful. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday and the menu is extensive. My only complaint is that the noise level on Friday and Saturday evenings does not lend itself to conversation. The location is also great, very near Tilles Center and good shopping, with more than adequate parking. I definitely recommend this restaurant for brunch, lunch, or dinner. Try the mussels! You can choose from among three sauces and they are delicious! I particularly love the pernod sauce!

Good Sunday Brunch
We've always had good brunches here. We sat down outside, but got caught between two large parties that made us quite uncomfortable. But we got up and moved to a quieter location, and then it was fine. I ordered an omelette with egg whites, and a regular omelette was brought to me instead, so I had to send it back. So my husband was 3/4 finished with his food by the time mine was brought correctly. Once it came, it was pretty bland, but then again, it's egg whites. Maybe next time I'll order something else. The menu is quite varied.
All in all, though, it's a really nice place and I would recommend it.

Great menu options!
Bar Frites is one of my favorite restaurants especially in the summer when there is outdoor seating. The large 'French inspired' menu has something for everyone -- including yummy pizzettes. Love the Tuna Tartare, White Peach Sangria, Mussels and Pappardelle Bolognese. It's an attractive restaurant and a bit of a scene so book your reservations ahead!

The entire experience was
The entire experience was absolutely wonderful. The service, food and atmosphere was superb. It is now one of my favorite restaurants. In fact, I visited restaurant twice in the same week; brunch and dinner.

although my son loves it, I was not too impressed. maybe its just a young persons cup of tea. We were a party of five including two younger and three senior persons. We were seated directly under a blaring loud speaker in the front of the restaurant and I had to ask to have my seat moved. It was early in the evening and they chose to seat us directly in the front near the bar area even though I had reservations. The menu was limited and just ok.

Great food and excellent service
Great food and excellent service . Perfect outdoor dining and great for groups and family occasions .

The Beef Carpaccio is excellent. My only complaint is we ordered the sliced filet minion and it came out well done . we ordered it med/rare. The waiter took care of it immediately and offered a shrimp cocktail or salad. We were not happy about the filet but the Frisse salad kept us calm while waiting for the filet which came out in 5 min.
The Poll brothers know how to run resturants!

Love this place. Was here 2 nights in a row this week. Salad Nicoux was prepared petfectly as was the chicken piyard (sorry for the spelling). Best bar around. Blood orange martini is sic, in the best use of the word. Attentive servers refilled water all night. Alway noisy. Hate sitting next to tables w/ children. Great outdoor space. U need reservations! I return as often as I can. Fairly priced for the experience, neighborhood & clientèle.

2nd night in a row.
Just as good as last night. Cosmo was perfecto! Ocy cold! Great service, greeted and sat immediately.

A little bit of Paris on LI
Excellent as always. We tried the mussels with lemon and pernod for the first time as an appetizer, and used every bit of bread to soak up the delicious sauce. Bar Frites never fails to surprise us.

Beautiful weather, comfortable outdoor seating, yummy food, attentive service and pretty space. A perfect lunch . Food was prepared as ordered with high quality ingredients. Never felt rushed which allowed us to relax and enjoy our conversation along with our meal.

Fast and efficient service
Fast and efficient service combined with great food makes this the perfect spot to eat before attending a performance at the nearby Tilles center.

vacation atmosphere at home
Had the filet mignon sliders and the pear and apple salad, very good. Cliff was very attentive and made us feel like regulars as soon as we sat down. I will be back soon :-)
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ive been to this restaurant many times. The food and service are always awesome. The only thing negative I can say is, the tables are very close together, so when it is busy you get bumped into a lot. But I prefer that over a restaurant that's empty and quiet.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Greeted cheerfully and sat immediately. Busy night. I had 2 great cosmos. My partner had 2 martinis they make the best drinks.
Chicken pillard was perfect as was the tuna salad. Didn't feel rushed even though they were full out busy and on a long wait.
This is my go to restaurant when ever I want a guaranteed good meal & cocktail.
