Very exciting place. Great people watching spot. Food and service were excellent though a bit pricey. So wonderful in the summer when they open the doors and the North Shore summer breezes sweep in. Exceptional decor.

Wouldn’t recommend the restaurant to anyone. Wife and I have been going a lot until tonight when her appetizer came out with a hair in that was black and her hair is blonde then her main course came out with a hair as well. We had friends sitting two tables away and they also had a hair in their bread. When I called the manager over he told us it didn’t come from the restaurant employees because they all wear hats and the hair came from us. I have been in the restaurant business for 15 years and that’s a bunch of nonsense. The best part is the manager gave us a bill and it cost us a $120 for food we didn’t eat. If I was the restaurant I would find a new manager because he obviously doesn’t know how to handle these kind of situations and should be working at Burger King instead of a fine dining restaurant

Both my husband & grandson ordered the crispy fried chicken. They enjoyed this dish very much. They loved the frites. I had the trout which was wonderful! The preparation of the fish was perfect for my palette. The vegetable was also prepared exactly to my liking. We would definitely return to this restaurant. A favorite of mine is the Asian salad but I am so glad that I experienced the trout dish. The waitstaff is very friendly & accommodating which makes dining here an enjoyable experience!

my only disappoint was that i ate less than half of my food and asked to have it wrapped. I left 6 of 10 pieces of a $25 pizza and when i got home i realized that had wrapped the handful of my husbands remaining french fries and did not send home my pizza. I was so upset.

Great service and
Food
We changed tables, spilled
Our iced coffee and no one batted an eyelash very professional staff
Only drawback is the noise level which was a bit high.
All in all would recommend it to anyone unless you need a quiet place to talk.

First time that I must post a poor review.
Too packed and loud
Pushing us out
Hanger steak all fat
Had to return
Salmon dry and bland
Duck a hunk of fat
Spinach just ok
Will think twice before going for dinner again
Lunch maybe

I went with my family for lunch on a Saturday for our son's 6th birthday. We all enjoyed everything we ordered:
Appetizer: grilled calamari, fish tacos for appetizers (both were delicious),
Entrees: Kids menu sliders, Gotham salad (very generous with the rotisserie chicken), salmon burgers. The salmon burgers were fresh, nice thick patties and cooked a perfect medium well as ordered, but it was pretty bland and could have used more salt/seasoning.
Dessert: Apple Tart tatine and chocolate molten lava cake. We enjoyed both! The lava cake oozed perfectly as we cut down the middle with our spoon, which our 6 year old totally loved.

Overall I think it's a kid-friendly restaurant. They provide cups with lids, kids menu, and several other items that kids would love (pizza, pasta, sandwiches, etc.) However, they don't have a changing table in the bathroom so parents with infants/toddlers should keep that in mind.

But overall, we enjoyed our lunch and we'll be going back to enjoy another meal.

The food was fantastic but the restaurant crams in too many tables resulting in a very loud atmosphere. Great for a night out with friends but I don't think I'd go back for a date night.

Bar Frites is a neighborhood favorite for everyone within 20 miles. It's big enough to accommodate a good crowd, and in warmer months has a beautiful dining patio. It's easy to get to, and has plenty of parking. But the best part is the food, and it's both a family favorite and a Thursday night hot spot. Excellent brunches, and a full, varied menu. We've been dozens of times!

The service was very courteous but slow. They were very busy with not enough help. Eggs on both orders were runny. My husband was too hungry to send his back. I sent mine back. They were very gracious and once I had my eggs Benedict back they were delicious. Our reservation was definitely respected and we sat immediately, however, we waited a good 20 minutes to place the order. The overall experience was good.

Lively vibe at this bright airy Bistro style spot, newer version of Pastis and Balthazar but similar feel. We had appetizers and drinks; service was fantastic, drinks were great and the food was good but nothing exciting.
I'd definitely go back; appeals to all!

I love the lively atmosphere , always crowded with beautiful people, the food is always good. This past Saturday was the most crowded I've ever seen here, probably because it was too chilly to sit outside, so inside around 7:30-9 it was jammed packed and very loud inside. It was actually hard to talk with friends, the waiter seemed very hurried, when we first sat down, but seemed a bit more calm when the crowds started to disperse. The measles that are usually great, cane out a bit cold, but the rest of the meal, that came out pretty quickly was delicious as usual. I love this place more in warm weather when outdoor sitting is available and more enjoyable.

We were very much looking forward to having dinner here, but it was like being at TGI Friday’s. It was full of kids running around unattended and a ridiculous noise level. The food couldn’t have been more average and the service was equally as disappointing. It was impossible to get someone’s attention. All I can say is “never again”!! Very disappointed.
