Everything was outstanding including the fact that we were seated early! But the noise level was such that it was truly difficult to hear our friends at our table.

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

Barawine is a lovely neighborhood Bistro. The food is fresh and plentiful.. The special brunch sandwich was delicious and enormous. It was actually almost too big to bite into. The best thing about the restaurant is the staff, who were so nice . They comped us a drink because they didn't have one of the liquors on hand, so we had something else, no big hardship. Before we were finished with our meal, they got a bottle of the missing Aperol, and brought us our original order. We left very happy.

Have been here a few times. Always great with good food and ambiance. However this time was a disappointing- the service was mediocre and the noise level horrendous- almost impossible to have a conversation.

The wine list is great

I enjoyed my meal with old friends. The service was very good. They didn't rush us when we sat for a while. I had the Chicken Caesar salad. It was ok. The chicken was a bit overcooked and so dry but generally it was an enjoyable meal. My friends also had salads and were quite happy with them. Next time I'll try something a bit more interesting. Nice ambience.

This wasn't our most successful visit. The menu didn't indicate that the dish we ordered would have a cream sauce and that wasn't edible for one of us. We had to return the dish and start anew. The replacement wasn't up to the standards of this normally excellent restaurant.

Super cute brunch spot, but slightly overpriced for the portion size and quality. Plus, my omelette was kind of tasteless. The experience itself was good and our waitress was very attentive.

We wait at the bar for a glass of Moscato that never came, while waiting for a friend. The waitress forgot our order of truffle French fries and it finally arrived when our plates were empty. The Aperol Spritzer was bad. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice. And that’s about it.

Second time we headed to Harlem for a dining experience and it was well worth the trip. There is a very nice wine selection and the food was delicious and the portions generous. The onion soup was great on a cool wet night, the salads very fresh. It was a little noisy, but we got used to it. We will definitely go back.

The service was terrible. They only had one waitress for the entire restaurant! She had to handle both the inside and outside and therefore was unable to attend to every table. The food was also undercooked and not flavorful. I would only recommend the wine here.
