Barawine is one of my fav NYC restaurants. Their Valentine's pre fixe didn't disappoint. Everything was perfectly cooked, tasty, and the staff was eager and friendly. I recommend 100%

This was my second visit, and for some reason this time the service was quite slow, and some the dishes did not live up to memory. I really like the place and the atmosphere, so maybe they were just a bit off. Good wine by the glass, which isn't always true, superb fries, and staff is very friendly. Will go again in the hopes that they were just off their game for some reason.

Excellent French cuisine, expertly cooked, without the uptight pretentiousness of some of the more upscale restaurants. If you enjoy great food and a casual and fun vibe (but still classy!) I highly recommend

Went to brunch here for the first time after several nice dinners. Both my Benedict and my friend's were cold and so were the potatoes. The salad was warm. Our server did not once ask how things were. Also we were there for a birthday which I submitted on open table and there was not mention from the restaurant. And for the record, the restaurant was not very busy, there were several open tables

I was so excited to check out Barawine finally. I moved uptown this year and heard amazing things about this spot. The food though, was not worth the price I paid at all. The restaurant is cozy and pretty, but the quality of food did not match one bit. The brunch sandwich, was so bland. Even a little salt and pepper at least would have saved it; the chicken was flavorless. They try to make up for it with an aioli, but it cannot save the sandwich. We then ordered french toast for the table, and it was another disappointment. No hints of vanilla or cinnamon and rather eggy. I was so surprised. The plating and items themselves look beautiful, but definitely diner level quality. I’m told they must have changed owners because the food used to be less expensive but quite exquisite, according to friends. The server was also very absent. I saw more of the support staff, who was rather courteous and sweet, than our server. And when she was at the table it appeared as if she was rather dissatisfied with having to be there. I work in hospitality and I get we all have bad days, but you leave that at the door— don’t bring it to the table. Overall: not worth the trip or price.

Wine list is always good and so is the music. The food, however, has deteriorated. The menu itself would be great but I wish it would taste better.

Our favorite neighborhood spot. Good ambiance, service (nice and personal) and first rate authentic French bistro+ fare. Reliable too. The branzino is a favorite entree and escargots a favorite starter. The wines by the glass are well chosen and generously poured. We rented it out for a party and it was terrific for that, too.

The food is consistently good and well prepared. The venue is very attractive, and it's not noisy. so a great place to go if you want to have a good conversation, in an aesthetically pleasing environment and in a part of town that has really become a fun place to meet up. Service is high quality, staff is friendly and the wine list is excellent.

I was excited to try Barawine, after walking past a few times and thinking it looked like a great spot. The restaurant itself was cute, but it was VERY loud during dinner, and the tables were so close together we had to move our table and the neighboring one to get in and out. I ordered an Old Fashioned and when they handed it to me I thought they got the drink wrong, it looked like cola in a glass filled with ice chips. The rest of the drinks were very tropical themed, which seemed odd at a French restaurant. The bread was delivered by a separate waiter who carried around a tray of it wrapped up. I assumed it would be warm and homemade based on the presentation but it was cold and tasted like supermarket bread. We ordered the roasted chicken and the steak. Both were overcooked, tough, and drowning in sauce. The potatoes (roasted with the steak, mashed with the chicken) were both pretty good, but nothing special. Overall, not a great meal. This place will probably last awhile since it's not surrounded by other French places, but unless it's incredibly convenient I would find somewhere else.

Spent too much on a simple brunch with a server who was unfriendly and hard to work with. My wife ordered two scrambled eggs and was charged the same $15 as the more elaborate scrambled egg dish. The server made us uncomfortable with a very dry personality and did not give us the sense of welcoming.

Barawine is located at a perfect spot on Lenox avenue, easy to reach.
Service is excellent, food is well prepared, ambiance is ok, especially the wine bar area is lively and cosy.
really a place to visit once in Harlem.

The restaurant cancelled my reservation a couple of hours before the dinner time without explanation or offer of another time that evening. It was an important dinner, and it made it very difficult to find something else on such short notice. Never happened to me before.

Hi,

We really enjoyed our first visit to Barawine, the food was great, the servers were friendly and the ambience was unique. However, after our dinner we wanted to try some desert and the waiter brought us the desert menu and did not return to get our order. After waiting for 15 mins, we decided to leave without trying it. This was disappointing as we really wanted to try the desert options.

Thank you
