    The food snd service were outstanding. The prices were somewhat ridiculous. We spent over $120 for a mezze plate of appetizers and 3 drinks. The bouse level was awfully high. But bearable.

    The Meze appetizer with bread was delicious and flavorful. The lamb sausage shashouka was very good and the homemade land sausage was tasty. The pancakes were delicious fluffy and whipped butter was great! Food and service was 5 stars!!! THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE! 1 star was the awful seating. Everyone was packed in like sardines! You can’t sit without someone hitting you from the table next door. Get smaller tables for the middle of the room or take some tables out! To me it just seems like the greediness of money by packing us in runs the business instead of the comfort of us eating without being elbowed.

    All is great, but between the loud music and the people trying ti scream over it to have a conversation at the table I left with a headache. The food is great I wish they would figure out what they want to be a Restaurant or a Club.

    We made a reservation. Arrived on time. Then they said table is not ready and it will be in 7 -10 minutes. They were very rude. We waited for about 30 minutes and still no table. So we told them we are not going to wait anymore. Apparently- they marked us as “no show” and got an email from OpenTable to confirm that we did not show- which we clarified what had happened. So - not cool - to not honor the reservation and then to have no honor by being dishonest- stating that we did not show up. It’s too bad because we had dined once in the past there and we liked it. We were going to celebrate birthday there- bad experience, highly unlikely to go back there again

    Amazing experience! There was a party at the bar and that did not impact service at all. Shared a lot of food and they always brought serving spoons and clean dishes as well as constant water refills. Probably the best service I’ve had in NYC. The food was all delicious!

    Made a reservation for a family get together and while spending time catching up with family I’ve not seen since the pandemic the waiter informed us the kitchen closes in 10 minutes, this was at 3:20, we sat at 3:00 and we were getting caught up. The staff should have informed us when we sat about the need to order and we certainly would have made that our priority. It was a bit of a killjoy moment. The food and overall service was certainly as expected based on previous experiences there.

    What a lovely dinner! The food and service were excellent and the space is beautiful. The only qualm we had was that the music was at a very good volume and then suddenly was bumped up 2-3 levels. It was quite loud and hard to have a conversation over. Otherwise, no complaints!

    Party of 5 the food we ordered was ok. Our waiter was a snob. I was Going to order another bottle of wine but he never even came back to check on our table, not once. Middle of the day so there was only about 10 people there apart from us. Good riddance!!

    Made a reservation for 5 at 3:30. Arrived on time only to be told “kitchen closes in 5 minutes”. A rushed experience. Wish I could say food made up for it, but it didn’t. Management should state kitchen parameters on opentable. We won’t be returning or recommending. However, I don’t think my review matters bc place was mobbed. Be forewarned.

    Our waiter was coming to our table every single minute, asking if we had selected a dish on the menu. Same with the dessert and the check. It was really annoying, specially for Christmas day! I had to make a comment but he did not seem to understand the issue.

    What a phenomenal experience! I waited until Christmas morning to make brunch reservations, and I am so glad I chose Barbounia! Open Table made making my reservations quick and easy. Then, when I arrived- my guest and I were promptly greeted and seated at a table. Next, our server was very kind and made wonderful recommendations for our drinks, main meal, and dessert. And while the restaurant does serve Mediterranean food, if you are looking for more traditional breakfast items, they have those available too. Finally, I LOVED the holiday decor! It was the deciding factor when choosing where to eat. I was so happy to eat here.

    Barbounia was great! I went with 8 of my friends and we all enjoyed the vibe and food. There was music but it wasn’t too loud and you were actually able to hear your friends. We ordered a bunch of food like the mezze platter, cauliflower, artichoke, mushroom pizza, brocollini, salmon, branzino, and Greek salad. It was all delicious. A little expensive but very good. The cocktails were great too. Also, waiter was very patient especially since we were a big group

    The menu is very interesting. The spices and combinations are also very interesting. But at the end of the day, it’s a machine kitchen and not overly special. We were on time but seated 30 minutes late.
