Bar Americain Ratings and Reviews
We have enjoyed ---and been dining at Bar Americain for the last 12 years + since it opened---and we were so sad to hear they are closing the restaurant tomorrow after serving the last meal at lunch!!! We understand it is another situation of the building owner that would not compromise on a new lease---and would rather see the space empty---sorry to hear---good luck to the great staff in finding new jobs!!
Great food once agaIn at one of our favorite NYC restaurants. Stopped by for a pre-theater dinner. The lobster and avocado appetizer is my favorite. I was dreaming of it since we booked our reservation. I had the mussels and fries for my entree. The only thing missing was the crusty bread to soak up the sauce. The staff is friendly and energetic. I strongly recommend.
Very underwhelmed. Heard its closing in a couple days, maybe that is why. Ran out of tap beer upon opening at 5pm. Waiter had not energy or excitement to be there. Steak served cold sent back. Bathroom had plastic container of soap. Mgr was only person that kept this from getting all 1's.
waiting so long to eat at a Bobby Flay restaurant. finally did appetizer, came out luke warm (shrimp and grits) Entree was delicious. The most disappointing was the service, it was not busy at all, wait staff standing near bar talking. Our waiter very unattentive.
As much as I am a fan of Bobby Flay, I will try again.
I’ve been here twice the first time was exceptional. This time the service was slow and unattentive and several of the dishes were just ok. The onion soup was amazing! I’d still recommend it but with a little caution since the experience wasn’t as great the second time.
Have been coming here with friends for 6 years on New Years Day and it was always a pleasant experience. My only complaint prior is that the menu was becoming stale. They actually removed a great dish from the brunch menu (full portion of shrimp and grits - now only avail as appetizer). They are closing their doors in 3 weeks due to a lease issue so this was to be our final visit. We were so disappointed today. The French Onion Soup tasted and smelled like an ash tray (something in it was burnt). The Tuna Tartar Toast Points were burned. The Kentucky Hot Brown had burned toast and was neither hot nor brown (it was ice cold). The Crab Cake Preakness Eggs Benedict was over cooked. They only charged for some apps and drinks, which in my opinion was too much for the experience. We understand that they are closing BUT it's Bobby Flay's reputation that is attached to it. I am sure if he would have been there today, he would have shuttered the place immediately.
This restaurant is closing soon, so we wanted to visit one last time. That was a mistake because the staff and kitchen have obviously already checked-out. The restaurant was always one of our favorites, and we will remember all the great meals we have had there; but this last visit was not good. Mr. Flay would not be proud.
Went to Bar American after attending the Alvin Ailey New Year’s Eve dance performance with my husband and a friend, what a great time was had by all. The restaurant did not have a special menu for New Year’s Eve, which turnout to be great as we each order a different dish and shared, I had the chioppino which was delicious with a kick to it, my husband had the pasta simple yet taste and my friend had the chicken which had a nice flavor to it. We ordered the crepe and soufflé for desert and the staff provided us with champagne to ring in the New year and the noise makers.
As always Bobby restaurant’s never disappoints.
Generally speaking, the experience was positive. A few comments. We asked for bread, and although offered to both table next to us, never got bread. The blackberry souflet was delicious, however, the waiter told us the "ice cream" was strawberry - actually was blackberry sorbet. Delicious, but waiter should know the menu.
Calm and welcoming even though it was New Years Eve. Service was wonderful . I felt the flatbread/Pizza w caramelized onions was not very good, and pricey for an appetizer. However, I’ve been there several times and would go back. Easy to reach midtown location
We ate here for New Year’s Eve brunch and everything was amazing. My husband and I started with the Pimm’s Cups, which were on point. My daughter had the Ratatouille Omelette and said it was the best omelette she’s ever had. It was everything I expected from a Bobby Flay restaurant!
Felt rushed to get our order taken. The wait staff stopped by several times before we were ready.
Food was superb. I had the Lamb Porterhouse Chops while my wife had the Mussels with Green Chilli Broth.
Food was a bit more expensive than what we are used to. Perhaps it is the added inner city effect.
Our experience was great except for our waiter. We had an early reservation and he kept checking on us, offering to answer questions about the menu. He helped me find the wine I was looking for, etc. Then our food came and he passed us by at least a dozen times. My son eventually waved him over. He asked if we wanted our check and walked away. He brought our check and that was that. I watched him walk past us and go to other tables multiple times. He even picked up another tables "ticket book", walked across the restaurant counting his tip with a huge smile on his face. That was the final straw for me. We would've also gotten desert had I not been so disgusted with his lack of service and his tacky behavior. I wrote a note on the back of my receipt telling him we were dissatisfied, I don't believe it mattered.
Our second time, very different from the first - and not in a good way. Food was very salty (multiple courses), the “famous” blue cheese and chips were 86ed, the burger was overdone, and service was slow. Perhaps the lunch/brunch crew is not the “A” team? Not sure we’ll be back, at least not for brunch.
Our lead waiter, Dennis, was MIA after serving our starters.
Understand the site is closing next month, but value BB enough to visit his old flagship.
Physical wear and tear noticeable with a bad cold draft near bathroom entrances.
Meal quality was ok; steaks appeared over-charred; sides were medium warm.
Dessert tart had flavor, but too chewy for the asking price.
Overall, suggest BB close the restaurant now and consider a partial refund on the $80/pp average I spent.
