Well seated onTime plus, the noise level massive noise
Made the best of it decor still Christmas not so bad
Had to keep asking bus boys for stupid things salt pepper
Napkins small things the waiter should have done
Waiter wasn’t as attentive as he should have been
Charged extra for pita bread after we ordered a massive dip Appy very tacky! Food not great just okay
Wonderful Mediterranean food. Great service. Beautiful restaurant. Neighborhood find.
My husband and I had a wonderful time at Barbounia. The food was excellent. The various flavors were tantalizing. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere very welcoming and comfortable. I can’t wait to go back.
It was SO hot we were sweating for our entire meal. Especially tough because it’s January and we were enjoying the bottomless brunch. Also ordered a medium burger and it came medium rare. Was fine for me but others might have felt it was under. Service is great but when I told the hostess it was super hot in the back it didn’t seem like she cared or would do anything to rectify it. We’re a flexible group but I would say the heat ruined what is normally a super fun brunch. I’d recommend to request the front of the restruant if it’s winter and then it’ll be perfect
Great vibe,great food, wonderful ambiance.
Never a bad experience here - we actually requested a specific table in our reservation notes, and they honored the request making our night that much more special. Goes without saying that everything we ate & drank was delicious. No doubt we’ll be back!
Great unlimited mimosas and bellinis special
Great Culinary Food & Superior Service, Excellent Experience!!!
We love eating at Barbounia. Service is outstanding. Food is excellent. The happy hour is fun and options generous. The dinners are great, wine list huge and prices very acceptable. Always on our top list when we come to NYC
We came to Barbounia for brunch. The food was great and our service was perfectly good. However, we were seated 30 minutes late, and they cut into our time with bottomless mimosas. They refused to serve us past 2 hours after our reservation time, despite the fact that we sat 30 mins past this time. When we raised this issue to the manager, we found the the response to be rude and demeaning. As much as we enjoyed the food and atmosphere, we would not return.
If you want a Wow! festive atmosphere and require a menu for guests who have various dietary requirements (e.g., vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian) there is something on the menu for everyone. Barbounia also offers an outstanding Happy Hour drink and food menu and encourages dining at the bar which is not always the case at many restaurants. My personal favorite appetizer is the Octopus Potato salad and for an entree I had the rib-eye steak. Some of the other choices selected included the Greek Salad (no feta), brussel sprouts side (excellent) and the fish special. If you have never dined at Barbounia give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
Feels like a whole new place in there. Very lively and happening.
Awesome time as always
Fun vibe and buzzing atmosphere, but food wasn’t really for me at all. Very expensive for food that has lots of plating flair, but not so much flavor. Waited almost 45 mins between courses. Won’t be returning, but may prove fun for happy hour crowds just looking for drinks and nibbles, as the mezze was quite good!
The food is wonderful! So tasty! The restaurant is great as well. I just didn’t like one thing.. My total was $50 so i left $100 and waited for the change. The waiter got me back $60 change (3 $20 bills) instead of $50 so i thought he made mistake and called him to tell him he gave me extra money. He said i know but we don’t have $10 bills so i gave you extra money. The thing is the maximum suggested gratuity was $10 (20% of $50) and i just felt he got me back 3 $20 bills so i can leave one $20 bill (his $10 plus the gratuity) .. i was going to leave the gratuity anyways but just felt it was intentional that’s all! It’s a vibe and i got it and didn’t like it! Who would give you $10 back from your bill in a fancy restaurant like that? Wouldn’t he be charged for them? He is a waiter not the owner! Also, he wasn’t gone for long in bringing back the change so i didn’t feel he looked much plus it was Saturday and the place was packed so it’s unlikely there are no $10 bills! I left the $20 bill anyway at the end but I just didn’t like the incident. Aside from that, the food is delicious.
We always love Barbounia! And happy it is a short walk from our flat. Such a vibrant space, and always full of laughter and chatter. The food is stupendous. Always! My partner and I shared a flatbread and an octopus. Delicious! I got the hanger steak, of which I had two bites after the appetizers ( but savored it the next day) and he got the salmon kabobs. The noise level can be intense, but the food, service, and ambience makes up for it. Thank You, Barbounia!
This was my first visit to Barbounia, and it did not disappoint! The interior, with its high ceilings and flowing fabric, felt warm and exotic, with enough lighting to read the menu without needing the flashlight app on your phone, but while also providing a soothing atmosphere. It felt special and elegant. We had the roasted eggplant appetizer, which came with bread and was just enough of an appetite-whetter. I had the snapper, and my partner the lamb special -- both were beautifully displayed and delectable. The staff was attentive without being overbearing. We felt pampered! And while this was not a cheap meal, it was also not outrageously expensive, especially by New York standards. All in all, a beautiful, delicious, swoon-worthy evening.
I have dined here several times and tonight was terrible. The service was so rushed. We had to put our appetizer and meal in at once and they came out all together at our little table. Our waiter never came back to ask if we needed anything or offer another beverage. The hostess ended up taking out bill to run it. They had us out in 45 minutes. Such a disappointing experience at my favorite restaurant.
The food was amazing. Our waiter was good but a bit distracted towards the end and we had to keep flagging him down.
Great service food and entertainment
Amazing food, people, music, overall AAA
LOVE IT HERE!
Amazing dining experience! Staff was friendly and gave honest and fantastic recommendations. Ambiance and vibe was on point!!! Took my family here that was visiting from out of town
Probably skip this place altogether in the future. Not sure why the waiter looked at me like I was crazy when I asked for a piece of toast to dip my runny eggs for the shakshuka I ordered. I could not get any refills on water. My tea was brought out about 20 minutes after I ordered it.
Wonderful food, wonderful atmosphere, but very arrogant.
Excellent food; great service; excellent communication; friendly atmosphere; great decorations but a little too noisy : music was a little too loud. Still, we had an excellent time !
Came with my family for Christmas brunch. We’ve never been disappointed here no matter what season, holiday or regular day we come. Service, food and cocktails are always spot on. Ambiance is elegant and chic. They are good with kids too!
Not the best service. Rude staff and really overpriced for the food which is mostly regular kebabs and uninteresting desert menu.
Xmas eve dinner here was good, the ambiance and set up feels warm for every occasion. Appetizers where great, main courses could improve (falafel made with way too much salt, salmon was half made). Overall we enjoyed our dinner but will consider other Mediterranean places before.
Food was delicious & waitress and servers were friendly! Will definitely go back!
Food is amazing!
Beautiful space, amazing service & food! Great brunch special on the weekends & hands down the best shakshouka in the city.
There were 11 of us...our number kept changing but the staff was incredibly gracious and accommodated us. The service was exceptional the food was delicious (per usual)
I went for brunch with friends. They have a bottomless brunch option of bellinis, mimosas and champagne. Whatever you asked for, you received the same drink which was outrageous. Even asking the waitress for one of each, she poured same drink from the same bottle... That reflects very poorly and cheaply on the establishment.
The food was OK for the price. Nothing out of the ordinary but not bad either. We ordered labne, hummus, shawarma lamb kebab and a burger. The shawarma didn't come wrapped in a pita and the chicken variant shud always come with a white garlic paste without which idk what's the point of calling it a shwarama. The hummus had significant tahini undertaste.
One of my favorites but just too packed and noisy during the holiday season.
Noise was awful restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holidays
Great food and service. The ambiance isgrest
