Food was good, not great. Duck ordered rare came well done. When corrected, everyone else was finished. Staff did nothing to apologize or recover service. Would not go back

The wine selection was amazing, food options were great, the outdoor seating was relaxing.
The only bad thing I’d say is the service was very slow (maybe they’re short staffed), other than that, everything was great!

It's been my second time at this restaurant. I like the menu, wine list and very friendly staff. This time we were sitting outside which was particularly nice as it felt like sitting on a little French Island in the middle of Harlem. Wonderful addition to the neighborhood, and highly recommended.

Came here Friday night for dinner...should have taken the sign of the couple next to us complaining about how long they had waited for the food. We never had a waiter, except for a distressed manager? who basically threw our bottle of wine at us and then we never saw her again. Our Caesar salad and shrimp took 45 minutes to come out of the kitchen. We cancelled our mains and left after having been there for an hour and a half. The best part: the new party next to us seemed to know everyone at the restaurant, as if it wasn't understaffed enough, everyone on the team had the time to stop by and chat with these two and they also got their food before us even when they came 20 minutes after us. I used to work in the service industry and let me tell you, that is not how you handle patio season. Got tacos next door, way better!

There were four of us dining and celebrating a birthday. We were seated immediately and received welcomed attention during the two hours that we dined. Our entrees were delicious and the desserts topped off the experience. We will return soon.

We waited over an hour and none of our food came. When we went to close out our tab we found out that they hadn’t even started on our orders. We weren’t the only patrons that ended up closing out our drink orders and just heading elsewhere for food. Pretty disappointed bc I wanted to support this neighborhood restaurant! Definitely won’t be coming back unless there’s a change in management.

Had 1pm reservations for a party of 3, once seated by hostess we were provided water; however after 20mins of being seated we called over the hostess to complain about being seated 20mins and our waiter has yet greeted us and of course that’s finally when the waiter arrived and stated “I’ve been busy, I’m sorry, I’m here now, what would you like to order?” We did not appreciate the tone, when we were the ones being paitent. A short intro in between those 20mins of a heads up of “bear with us” by any of the staff memebers would have been a minimal kind gesture and appreciated.

The issue with our waiter seemed to have been closing out bills and since she was the only one able to since they were short staffed (ironically during thwir busiest Sunday brunch hours).

Enjoyed the food, wine and venue appearance but I will never return there during it’s busiest hours, since we had a long wait to being greeted as well as being served.

If I were to suggest to friends I would say to go during none peak time or not at all.

We had a perfect evening at Barawine. The restaurant was buzzing happily on a Monday night and we felt very welcome. The charcuterie and cheese plate was a perfect starter to share, and the waitress recommended a number of mains which were all great. We finished with superb chocolate lava cake and coffee made to perfection. We will be back :-)

Met. Some FriendFeed dining, the food and wine were excellent, service was good, but the music level was extremely high, so to maintain a conversation you as well as the other tables had to shout, making the environment extremely loud. Totally inappropriate for a restaurant.

Went there in the snow storm. Good food had the duck. Loved it. Desert- a chocolate cake and ice cream was just the right size. Some may think small. The creme brûlée was nicely crisp. The wine was as described in the wine list. Love the place. Classy but not pompous.

It was a. It's Saturday night as all restaurants worth the wait in NYC usually are! Our group had an excellent time we ended up sitting at the bar which we were totally ok with. The DJ played good music and it was a nice atmosphere. Service was great & the manager Sade was amazing !!! The service staff did a good job too. Thank you for making my cousins bday memorable! Only thing that was slightly briefly a concetn It was a bit warm but it might of been due to the Raclette grill but they opened the door to get some breeze in

I did not enjoy my experience here. My fiance and I came here for Valentine's Day and did the prix fixe menu. We also ordered off that menu as well, opting for a charcuterie plate. All of the food was mediocre at best. I ordered a glass of Riesling and it was incredibly sweet. The decor is nice, service was fine, and the ambiance is cool, so I really was hoping for the best, but alas, that was not the case. I won't be back.

We arrived and didn’t have to wait long to be seated. Ambience was nice and surprisingly calm for Valentine’s Day.

We sat and didn’t get approached by wait staff or even served water for about 15 minutes until I flagged down the host. Before he sent over service, I had him replace the dirty glass and place setting before us.

The server seemed a bit low-brow. Describing food items as “good” or “popular”. If a chef goes through the trouble of Shrimp Risotto or duck magret, you should develop a vernacular to appropriately and respectfully describe it. Also, one of the busboys who eventually came to pour us water had mild Body odor.

The food itself was great. I spinach ravioli is recommended. Portion size was a bit small, but is to be expected.

Next time, I’d prefer not to wait. It’s a big no-no for this foodie. Even the bill to 15 minutes to come out. Also, they don’t accept Discover ? 🤔🤔🤔

We had never been here before. Overall, everything was good. The price point for the happy hour wine was excellent, as was the service. For appetizers we had the spinach ravioli and the beef tartare. For our entrée we had the scallop dish and truffle fries. The scallops were incredibly tender. But the taste of the scallops got lost in the broth of the dish. It was really disappointing especially coming from a town whereI eat mostly fish. The ravioli was excellent as was the beef tartare, and I really appreciated the quail egg. Our server was excellent and we really appreciated his kindness while it got busy.

Went here for Valentine's day dinner. There was a price-fixe menu but we ordered from the a-la-carte menu which had great choices. We originally had a table reserved but decided to sit at the bar area to take advantage of their happy hour specials. Had some delicious French sangrias prepared by our bartender Phillipe. They were spicy (I know!) and really good. We decided to have our entire meal at the "bar" which is really an extended comfortable double-sided counter that would be ideal for large parties and suited us just fine.
We shared some delectable parmesan truffle fries and for entrees had the shrimp risotto and the pan seared bronzing. The food was all excellent and the service was superb even on such a busy night as this.
If you live anywhere near this neighborhood you gotta go here! Even if you don't, its worth the trip.
