    Customer service was subpar from the moment we walked in. We were not treated with courtesy or respect, and the staff was impatient and inattentive. Very disappointing after having this restaurant recommended from others in the community. Though we had reservations, we only ordered drinks to honor our reservations, and ended up making reservations elsewhere for dinner. Would not recommend.

    I've been to Barawine several times. I live in the area and over the years, it has not really improved. The restaurant itself is poor, whether that is because the owner doesn't want to provide more support to staff or if staff in general is just not very attentive but the service is slow. The food is okay, not great not terrible. The best part is that the vibe in the front where the wine bar is located is very nice. The music is very good as well

    Barawine used to have better food a year ago. The food now is not good - beef tartar was poor quality and chunky like dog meat instead of smooth, escargot was oily, not buttery and tasteless with little garlic or herbs. The shrimp appetizer was rubbery and the server was unpleasant, never smiling or checking back to see how our meal was.

    I'd been to the bar before but this was the first time for dinner (with 3 friends). We loved our food but had some issues with the competence of the waiter, particularly with the wine. We ordered a bottle from the menu, he told us it might not be available but pushed another one. When asked what varietal it was, he couldn't say. When asked what type of grape, he said "red". Really? Anyway, we tried it and it was okay. When we wanted more wine, somehow he was able to get the one we originally asked for, which was vastly superior. When it came time to pay, we asked to pay with 3 credit cards, one @ 50%, the other two at 25%. It was beyond his comprehension and we had to make other arrangements. All that said, the food was really excellent. It was a busy Friday night and was louder than I'd like but such is the norm. The vibe was very interesting and pleasantly lively.

    Barawine was a good choice for late Friday afternoon drinks and snacks. The servers were attentive and Its extensive wine list pleased even my guests visiting from France. We sat outside on a sunny day, warm day; it would have been nice to be able to choose a table shaded by an umbrella. My cocktail, the French Velvet, was yummy! Not sure why they bothered to give us the happy hour menu, when it was only available if we sat at the bar inside. We ordered the charcuterie board and the cheese board. The variety of cheeses was excellent and included grapes, slices of apple, and some very pedestrian crackers. Thinly sliced baguette would have been a major improvement. The charcuterie board's presentation was very minimalist - a few large slices of cured meats (about 6), kalamita olives, cornichons, and a dab of dijon mustard, but no bread or crackers. The food was not a good value for the price.

    We've been to Barawine multiple times for dinner, but yesterday's brunch experience was such a disappointment... I'm hoping that they were just having an "off" day, but the service was terrible (we were seated with menus for at least 10-15 minutes before we were approached by a server in a nearly empty restaurant, the food arrived well before our drinks, AND they included an automatic 20% gratuity on a 1:30PM reservation for a party of three.....) and the food (french toast and waffles) left much to be desired. I've always viewed this restaurant as a neighborhood gem, but will seriously reconsider my brunch options moving forward.

    Brunch with the girls was fun. The food was delicious. But we just had 1 bad apple. The waiter come to find out was the manager was awful. He wasn’t attentive and rude. It’s a shame not sure if I would go back from the bad experience.

    After a quiet start, the energy picked up at Barawine and was its usual terrific experience. Though there was one table that was particularly loud, it did not prove to be a problem. The food was terrific: omelet, beet salad, delicious bread. Great drinks. Truly excellent service from Walesca who went beyond expectation to take care of our table. Her light and spirit really was beautiful, and we also appreciated the other staff members who helped provide a great experience. Barawine remains our go-to brunch place in Harlem!

    The quality of the food has deteriorated markedly. The salad was watery as was the sauce on the main course. The appetizers and main courses were served together.

    I went with my mother and a friend to celebrate a new job. We have been there a few times previously and really enjoyed the experience. However this time when we went to order the lamb shank, which is our favorite meal, we were informed that it was not available and the kitchen had run out. We did end up ordering other dishes however we were disappointed that we weren’t able to have our favorite meal. Overall the experience was nice there were a couple of very loud tables but it was a Saturday night so that is to be expected.

    Love Barawine - great vibe but $10+ for regular fries & $14 for Truffle fries is bit much. The Bellini and mimosas also didn’t taste right and our party of six all agreed. Will definitely go there again to try other options as we love the vibe and owner is very courteous.

    The food was way overpriced for the quality. The service was really lackluster, like they were annoyed we were there... and the ambiance (environment) was nice, but the place was gross/dirty. The glasses I got all night were dirty (didn't request a new one after I realized it would be all the glasses all night), and I found a hair in my entree! The cherry on top of the evening was that at the end, after we clearly didn't enjoy our experience, the waiter said smugly - don't worry, I didn't charge for the bread basket. The bread was stale anyway!!!!

    Love Barawine. Always a great menu and good service. Wish they would not turn on loud music after a certain time of night. We go there to be able to have fine food and conversation - which gets difficult as the noise level rises and the music is turned on.
