Hostess was very attentive. The food and service were good; however, the noise level was off the charts….very hard to hold a conversation over the Music. If they toned down the Music, volume, then it’s definitely a great place to go!

Steak tartar was good and so were the fries. Service is very slow - we asked 3 times for our wine which then arrived after we already got our food. The evening manager also didn’t wear a mask which was a bit of a concern with super high transmissions in the city.

The food is average, but it's a local place. With all the waiter staff, you would think they would be attentive, but the service really need to improve.

The food and drinks were good, but the prices are a bit expensive for the sizing and the area. It’s clear that the area is gentrified, but it’s also clear that Barawine is pricing most people who live in the surrounding area out. They were also out of several things on the menu, including hot chocolate. Why?? It’s winter! They also need to come up with better holiday cocktails and think about repricing. $15 for a TINY Hot Toddy is unacceptable. A cold lychee martini is not a holiday cocktail in my book.

The restaurant atmosphere was wonderful. Staff was wonderful also, they did not rush you and they asked how everything was. The branzino did not have any flavor or seasoning to it. The appetizers and food did not come out hot. And the restaurant was slow at 5:00. Overrall nice place but expected a better taste in the food.

Wine list is amazing and moderately priced. Highly recommend the sparkling rose for a bubbly start to the evening. The truffle fries are not to be missed. The escargot & tiger shrimp appetizers were delicious and garlicky. The bay shrimp and corn risotto is the best I’ve had and I’m a risotto connoisseur.

The food was delish. We sat outside because it was beautiful out. I think next time we'll sit inside to see how it is. Nice ambience and the staff was friendly.

We were very happy with the food we ordered - every one of our appetizers and main courses was first rate. Both fish dishes were exceptionally well prepared and tasty.

We have a couple of small quibbles: First, we had to pay for a plate of bread; this might be ok if the bread was homemade, but it was store bought and not that good. Second, the desserts were also store bought and only average.

Our server was nice but things were slow.

But we would go back because our dishes were so delicious.

The server kind of forgot about us and forgot to bring water, ask if we wanted more wine (we did), etc. and messed up the order (brought us two appetizers of the same thing when we only asked for one). The risotto was a little too cheesy.

Very very slow service. Had to chase the waiter to find both our apps and then again our mains. Food was just so-so but for the price, it ought to have been special.

Barawine is a great staple in Harlem. The staff is always pleasant and since they're a neighborhood establishment it helps that they are very familiar with their customers. I was a little bummed they ran out of the risotto but the ravioli served it's purpose :)

I went to Barawine by myself! But that is my norm and my bring a lot of positive energy and vibes with me. So Ofcourse the female DJ and I hit it off instantly. It was like she was playing for only me. After looking around, I’m pretty sure others felt the same way @djmimicatalina was a whole mood!! I ordered the Croquette Madame and it was really good. The bottomless mimosas with peach and pineapple was even better!! I met the most awesome people. It was a hit for me. The only negative was the air conditioner felt non-existent on a NY summer day.

First Saturday brunch since the pandemic. This was the last restaurant I ate in before the shut down. I think the staff was a little over anxious so kept hovering. But will definitely go back.
