About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Barbes Restaurant is named after the famous Paris neighborhood at the foot of the Sacre-Coeur, also known as the 'little piece of North Africa'. The Northernmost part of Africa, the Maghreb, is comprised of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia with cultures captivating with their cuisine, music and decor. Barbes is a melting pot of Parisian and Maghreb cultures and Barbes Restaurant carries that spirit. 'Our restaurant strives to bring the atmosphere of Barbès here in New York. Through our menu and ambiance we aim to immerse our clientele in the unique colors, tastes and sounds of Barbes.'

Very convenient to the Morgan Library, but a destination as well.
My first experience with Moroccan cuisine and it was delightful.
Nice middle-eastern ambience, full with a lunch crowd of middle-eastern men and tourists.
I enjoyed the artichoke with mustard vinaigrette, a unique combination to me.
Couscous was an excellent base for the vegetable stew
But most unique was the Pastilla which was a new experience and quite good.

Wonderful Mororrocan/French Med bistro. Delicious tagines (try the lamb with prunes and sesame seeds), couscous, appetizers, etc. lovely atmosphere. Service is friendly and attentive. Reasonably priced.

Excellent except for noise level at our table near the bar. Better to sit on the other side of the room.

The food was delicious/amazing...fresh food and so tasteful! The staff where very friendly/service minded good service. I can recommend this restaurant for anybody who loves to try real authentic Moroccan food. I have been to many Moroccan restaurants in the USA but Barbes restaurant is the best of the best.

Best regards from Younes Bichri from Sweden. :)

My husband and I had a great dinner here. It was the first time we tried Moroccan food and the hostess was very thoughtful and helpful in describing the food on the menu for us. The dinner was delicious and in large portions. It was a worthwhile experience especially since it was our anniversary.

A real neighborhood gem. The service and food are excellent, the choices and specials are always delicious. And that Sangria -- some of the best I've ever had.

Interesting and flavorful dishes; great vegetarian options. Very friendly and attentive staff. A nicely decorated, ethnic restaurant. Noise level was a bit high, as there was a large party on one side of the small restaurant having a great time.

Menu choices are not a lot. Menu is a mixture of the Morrocan and French. Their breads were just normal and none of those though. There is a nice decor and ambience looks great. Lamb sausage was good and their lamb meat was well cooked but the chicken was dull. Pricewise they will add gratuity automatically to the bill. Also the cost of entree is between 23-30, so it is on the $$ side.

The food was great. The staff couldn't have been nicer and attentive. What we ordered was perfectly cooked and delicious. We had the price fix menu and it was well worth it. We would go there again.

This is a really special neighbourhood restaurant. The menu features a large selection of French/Moroccan cuisine. I had the chicken tagine that was served in an authentic tagine dish and it was delicious. I was in NY for business on my own and the staff and owner were very welcoming and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant and will revisit next time I am in NY.
