This is the first time I have been to Barbounia for their famous brunch and it was just fabulous! There were so many items on the menu that I wanted to try and everything we ordered was so delicious. The staff was wonderful and very inviting and the restaurant itself is beautiful.

So fun and delicious! My girlfriends and I went, unknowingly, on International Women's Day and the restaurant had pink balloons up and offered every women a complimentary pink cupcake for dessert. We enjoyed bottomless mimosas with our unique brunch entrees - green folded frittata, smoked salmon & egg, and a wild mushroom omelette. We would order any of these again!

Cool atmosphere and great menu but way too loud to even carry on a conversation with our friends. Not sure I'd go back. We also felt a bit rushed by our server.

Unique and exceptional cuisine. Excellent service. Background music was just a notch too loud making it difficult to hear a person two seats away, Nonetheless I’d go back there in a heartbeat.

The food was exceptional. However, the waiter we had was not great. He unfortunately paid very little attention to us and only pushed to upsell the higher price point dish without really listening to our needs. We waited 20 minutes just to get our bill, once the bill came, he asked someone else to swipe our credit card and gave the bill to us without saying bye or asking how our meal was. It was my partner’s 40th birthday and we were very excited to dine at Barbounia. We left full from the amazing food but disappointed with the overall experience. The service we had was quite unprofessional and disconnected.

The food , service and atmosphere were fantastic. The only thing holding back a 5 star review was that the tables were to close together. I know real estate is at a premium in NYC but they had one to many tables jammed into the space. My elbows were on top off the person at the next table.

The food and atmosphere was excellent. The service was pretty terrible. We arrived at our reservation on time but were made to wait an additional thirty minutes. We got to the table to dirty glasses and silverware. The waiter took thirty minutes to take our order and took longer to do anything else.

Checked in on time for reservation and was made to wait for over 30 minutes in a crowded and uncomfortable foyer. Receiving no word as to when a table would be available nor an apology for the delay, we left and went to another restaurant where we had a lovely dinner.
