A trendy spot that seems to be known for its bar scene. However, as a place for a fine dining experience, it's very much lacking. The place is cramped and overcrowded -- waitstaff can barely make it between the tables. It's as if they'd rather accommodate more people in a mediocre manner than fewer people with excellence. I didn't mind the loud, noisy atmosphere as much as I was incredibly distracted with 360 degrees of chaotic activity all around me. While the service was OK, the food was just OK as well. When asking about the fish selections, the waiter suggested the most expensive (and least impressive) seafood dish on the menu. The $30+ halibut dish was adequate, but not worth the hefty price charged. My wife wanted an entree sized salad as her main dish, but when she was greeted with a side dish sized salad, we had to pay double to get a second one. Had she wanted it topped with a protein, like chicken or shrimp, we were told, she would have gotten a larger salad. Even though we specifically asked for an entree-sized salad to start, we had to pay $26 to get her a sufficient amount of romaine lettuce and cheese for dinner.

I'm not a foodie or even very picky about restaurants, but this visit to Bar Frites was likely my last. I've somewhat enjoyed this restaurant in the past, but I think it's time for me to save my precious restaurant dollars for a place that's a better value and is more focused on customer service.

Great see and be seen spot. Authentic bistro style food and atmosphere. Be prepared to raise your voice for normal conversation. Excellent service and food. Extensive choice from burger to full dinner. Reservations respected ! Friendly staff . Food well prepared to order and served in reasonable amount of time. Wines by the glass excellent tasting.

I like Bar Frites a lot, however, the noise level is quite high, so it is not for a romantic dinner. The food is good and they have a lot of options for either a full dinner or small plates. Bread is great crusty french bread!

Great casual bistro. Lively well dressed bar crowd! Professional service attentive but not obtrusive!
Arrived for an early dinners on a Wednesday. Was early for our reservation but were seated immediately.
I noticed a lot of burgers on brioche buns in tables. The menu is varied and inventive. We decided to share the Calamari appetizer which was crisp and delicious.
My wife ordered Filet Mignon Sliders which was a generous portion of steak on 3 buns.
I had open shrimp ravioli which was in a flavorful broth.
We each had 2 glasses of wine and topped it off with cappuccino.
Everything was excellent and although the tab at $150 with tip was a bit steep, we have paid more and been disappointed!

The tables are on top of each other. It is much too loud. The food is good and the waitstaff are very professional, but I would not recommend it due to the unpleasant, excessive noise.

The French Onion soup was O.K., not as good as I was expecting and not as good as I've had at other restaurants. The avocado toast was good but very skimpy. I never saw such small poached eggs. Considering the price, I was disappointed in the food. The atmosphere was pretentious and very loud. I would not recommend.

The our reservation was honored. It was a late reservation and we didn't have to wait at this late time. The bar area was very crowded and we were concerned that there would be a wait. We were sat in a booth and because of its location we were able to hear each-other speak even though the restaurant was on the loud side. The food was good-no complaints.

We were here for lunch aside from being very noisy the service was awful. I asked for no salt which I don’t think was done the dressing I asked for was red wine vinaigrette like on the Greek salad and was brought plain red wine vinegar and told that is what I asked do and had To settle for their vinaigrette which was awfully sweet. Mr husbands sandwich was a disgrace 2 tiny pieces of grilled chicken loaded with mayo even though he said no mayo and our friends omelette came without sauce we will definitely not be coming here anymore.

This is one of our favorite go-to places on Long Island, perfect for lunch and equally as appealing for dinner. The service is excellent and the management is superb ---- always welcoming, greeting you by name and interested in your opinions. A really nice addition to the L.I. restaurant scene.

Frequently go to BF. Food and service is always excellent. Definitely a see and be seen crowd but we always request table in back (or outside on comfortable nights) so my father can hear better. Pricey? Yes! But on Long Island there's always similar for more$ and less$.

My husband's boss offered to pay for my family's dinner as a kind gesture due to a recent death in our family. We chose Bar Frites because of its location and outdoor seating. The restaurant always seems crowded so we assumed the food must be good. We were seated outdoors as it was a beautiful evening. The atmosphere was nice. Our waiter was OK. Martini's a little strong. Fried calamari appetizer was adequate. Three of us ordered the duck dinner assuming a french bistro would get it right. The duck was overcooked, dry and tasteless. We were extremely disappointed. My husband got the sea bass dinner and said it was also dry. Only 1 of us was satisfied and that was my son who got the roast beef au jus sandwich. For the high price of our dinners, my husband thought it appropriate to complain. The management was nice and offered to put our desserts and coffees on the house. Desserts and cappuccino's were good. We were a little concerned about the bill since it was going directly onto my husband's boss' credit card. When asked to see the bill, we were told it was not available. I thought that was strange so we couldn't confirm if desserts were truly on the house. Anyway, most of us were extremely disappointed in our dinner and I would not choose to eat at the restaurant again when there are many more restaurants in the same price range in the area that are better.

I would definitely eat here again. We booked before a show at the Tilles Center. My hanger steak was okay, a bit underdone, but my friends all thought their food was very good. Interesting and creative menu for whatever mood you are in. My only concern is that the service was slow between salad and entree. We sat for 20 minutes between clearing the salad and serving of entree, which meant we were rushing to finish in time. A 5:30 reservation for a 7:30 show should have been less stressful. Expect pricing based on the neighborhood. I would definitely eat here again.

Bar Frites is a great spot for a special lunch. The decor is bistro busy and the service is attentive and friendly. My Asian salad was tasty with an abundance of everything that was described on the menu. My friends pizzette met all expectations. I enjoyed being served tea with really hot water in a tea pot. In spite of the noise level, we will return to Bar Frites to explore more dishes!
