Excellent food, service and ambiance... will be back soon!
What a wonderful neighborhood gem! Great menu and excellent service. The owner is so friendly and welcoming.
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.
Came here with friends for brunch on Sunday and had a great time! Food was great, loved the music , atmosphere and bottomless bellinis. Will definitely return again!
The vibe is low-key and warm:) Our Brunch spot whenever we hit Central Harlem.
This restaurant was so overwhelmingly loud that four people could not hold a conversation. I go to many restaurants which are noisy, but this was oppressive. Could not get past it to enjoy the meal.
I am a French speaker with lots of experience dining all over the Francophone world. I am a New Yorker, nonetheless, and I am passionate about creative cuisine in neighborhood settings. Having dinner in Harlem in a setting that was both warm and convivial and chatting with the numerous French-speaking personnel there was a pure delight. And the food was the perfect punctuation for a wonderful evening. The dishes were creative, beautifully presented, and totally delicious. I suppose someone could ask for more...but why? Barawine is a new favorite!
Two of us ordered chicken which arrived cold, tough and rubbery. A friend ordered the vegetarian main course, which was mainly noodles and very few vegetables. A friend who brought us to the restaurant expressed her disappointment to the hostess, who didn't seem particularly concerned. Apparently, the owner of the restaurant was not there the night we dined there. The dishes were way overpriced, especially in light of the poor quality of the food.
This is the third time I've been to Barawine -- twice for dinner, once for drinks. The food and service are consistently very good, and the ambience is welcoming. They have a nice wine list, which I enjoyed all three times. It's a great neighborhood restaurant and also excellent for folks like me who came in to the city for a few days and get off at the 125th St. Metro North Station.
Baravine is a fine little French Creole restaurant. The food is delicious and the ambience is quite nice, the jazz music completes superbly the mood. However, the unisex bathroom is small, cramped and most importantly on my visit on a Sunday, it was somewhat dirty. Toilet paper was spewing out of the bin to the floor.
Brunch review: BOMB FOOD! French toast is definitely a must. The potatoes are out of this world. Nothing is a bad option.
Love this place!
The best Raclette in New York !!! great service
