    Really disappointed in what I ordered. The risotto was mushy like mashed potatoes. More servers needed. The added 18% service charge should be applicable to large parties not for my party of 3.

    The food and wine are really good but the service is deplorable. Simple matters like water, drink orders and even getting orders correct is a challenge. We waited almost 30 minutes from being seated to placing drink orders. I had to physically go ask the waiter if he'd take our order. I love the food and ambiance, one huge downside is the entire restaurant smelled like old fish grease and was super smokey. Our eyes were watering and it was hard to see with the smoke. My clothes, coat, and hair still smell like fried fish.

    Great neighborhood spot. Excellent bar, good seating indoors and outdoors. Huge portions. Had the beet salad which was almost a meal in itself. It was a weeknight so the restaurant was quiet and I could actually hear my dinner companions speak.LOL. Lovely service from Dottie, our waitperson, who was very attentive. Prices are not cheap and averaged out to $100/pp for a salad appetizer, entree, and 2 Happy Hour drinks. But that's post-covid life...

    Barawine has become my neighborhood go-to, and a definite choice when I have guests. They couldn't be nicer, it's a friendly atmosphere overall, solid wine list, and the chef is terrific. I want to try something other than branzino, but they make it so well, I may not be able to!

    First time and definitely not my last. Pretty place—and they can cook! The food was great, service aims to please, more noise in the front bar/high top area, quieter in the back, But still warm and lovely. Excellent branzino.

    It was my first time eating at this restaurant and I was celebrating for my engagement with a friend. But the service was not good. They sat us in the far back away from the rest of the guest. The drinks and appetizers came late. And the calamari was over cooked. They tried to compensate me by offering shots, but I politely declined. But I will say that I enjoyed the mussels and truffle fries.

    The food was too salty. I had to pour water on my salad to make it edible. My mother said the waffle she had was bready and tasted like it was just reheated and not made fresh. Maybe it's better to just go for drinks...

    Food was good, but service was a little spotty. Additionally, when the bill came they automatically charged a 20% gratuity for a table of 6 even though we were only a table of 3. Although we would’ve tipped this amount anyway, we pointed it out as it seemed a little shady considering the receipt still listed the suggested tip amount despite it being charged. We might have tipped double if we hadn’t paid attention and it was not an inexpensive bill. When brought up to the waitress, we were informed that this was their standard practice for the weekend, but why would this not be highlighted? Additionally the bill listed our table as being for 6 which means they intentionally listed it that way. They also charged a 3% fee for credit cards. It all seemed shady and was off putting. I just moved to the neighborhood and was excited to make this my place, but with such practices, I doubt I will be back. Disappointing as I would have liked to make this my regular spot.

    We have been going to Barawine for years and it’s one of our favorite local spots. I guess last night there was a new crew in the kitchen because our food took FOREVER to arrive and even things like a Cesar salad and French fries were delayed, yet tables who sat later than us received their appetizers before us. I was there with my elderly in-laws and my toddler and so waiting 1 hour 15 mins for food was really tough. I was expecting them to comp us part of the food since it was so delayed, and then they additionally forgot my daughter’s grilled chicken so she was waiting another 10 mins to eat dinner and just filled up on fries. Either way, when the food finally arrived it was delicious as always but it was a real bummer to have the service go so far downhill. Hoping things improve.

    I'm always on the fence about this place. I love the intent of the business being in Harlem but it seems their customer service and reservation check-in process is always a "whomever is available" and the patron is on their own to find someone to check their reservation. I've only been here twice for dinner and several times for drinks and the host/hostess stand is rarely occupied to greet you as you enter. The staff is busy so I never take their tone as rude, just unorganized as I'm usually told "to wait here" or "just wait one moment" when it's time to check-in for my dinner reservations. Once you're seated, the service is diligent, committed, and the food is prepared perfectly and comes out reasonably fast if not very fast. I highly recommend the Yellowfine tuna tartare and the Roasted baby corn and bay shrimp risotto.
