Amazing room at a great midtown location, unfortunately the food is awful. The tuna tartar was ice cold and tasteless, and the fish over over cooked. At these extremely high prices, one should get much better. I have been eating at this place for many years and every time it gets worse. At this point in time it is a tourist trap. Be warned. Decent service.

Unfortunately, my wife's dish was delivered cold, although the plate was very hot. We sent it back and it came back cold a second time. Disappointing.

We selected Bar Americain based solely on a facebook recommendation and were not disappointed. The food was outstanding as was the ambiance.

Food was ok, my grits must have had five tablespoons of butter in it, but it was tasty. Grouper was good, albeit much too much going on with the ingredients. Cavernous space that houses many diners, most of them here to either expense it or see a show.

Food was delicious. However, the noise level made it difficult to have conversation.

Had lunch with a colleague Thursday. Delicious food--she had shrimp with grits, I had a spicy tuna tartare. We had a great waiter who kept track of the time for us, as my lunch mate had a plane to catch. He offered us a plate of cookie with our coffee...I don't know where they get their cookies...unbelievably good! Overall amazing experience.

Looked for restaurant for pre-theatre dinner. Bar Americain worked perfectly. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. Overall dinner was delicious and had excellent service. Tables not too close together to be annoying. Will definitely make a return visit.

Celebrating our Anniversary, we decided to have a gourmet dinner. This restaurant is all about it, quality of food, taste and service.
Don't hope for a romantic or a glamorous venue here: everything is just about making excellent one's culinary experience. Fantastic!

Bar Americain is outstanding in every way. Every person working in this wonderful restaurant has their job down pat, and they show enthusiasm for it. Everything is top notch here. We had lunch here on our last day of vacation in NYC. It was the perfect ending to our trip.

My husband started with the french onion soup. That was superb. Very rich broth and great crouton with cheese. He also had the burger with bleu cheese and fries. That was a huge, delicious burger. The bleu cheese made it very rich, so he only ate about half, but thoroughly enjoyed it. (I enjoyed the bite of it that he gave me!) I had the Southwest Cobb salad and it was great.

We shared the angel food cake with blackberry sauce and mint tea for both of us. YUM!

Fantastic dinner and a place that you wouldn't expect to be kid friendly, but they accommodated my daughter by making her a meal with out all the marinades and sides. Thank you!

Had a great experience here. Food was wonderful and service was fabulous. Great atmosphere. Would come back.

Food was great. My issue is with presentation and delivery. Food was not hot enough and the fact that plates were not warmed up compounds the problem. From such a reputable restaurant that is surprising. Because 3 out of 4 plates came out at the same time and we were waiting for the 4th one this is a noticeable problem. The Cappuccino was luke warm.

I am a vegan and was able to eat at Bar Americain simply because the staff and the kitchen were so accommodating. I really was worried that there would be nothing for me to eat. Our waitress even pointed out to me which breads were vegan and which were not. I hope as more people begin to choose this lifestyle, there will be even more choices for vegans on the menu.

This was me and my boyfriend's first visit to NY, and Bar American meet all of our expectations. The food was amazing and it was also very close to the theater. The atmosphere was very inviting and we had a very nice dinner on our last night in New York.
