Barbuto has been a West Village staple for a long time. Hit it for the pasta, the roast chicken, and the scene of single people hanging at the bar.
The chairs are so very uncomfortable
The server was not correct in a dish description. Food felt small and appetizer size. The apérol spritz was clear and the whole experience felt cheaply delivered. For the cost the execution was poor. Probably not coming back.
And....I notated it was a special occasion. Nothing was mentioned about that or was the service indicative of that note.
It was delicious as usual
Great food, service and restaurant. One of my favorites and one I dine at every two or three weeks
Never rushed, and even though our waiter was super busy, he always had time to answer questions, check on us and make conversation. Everything was flawless. I’ll be back on my next New York visit and with all the dining options available, that’s a high achievement!
I love Barbuto's. It's one of those NYC places that's been around forever and no wonder. It does everything right, the food is delicious, service great and it's very consistent. Go whenever I can get in.....make reservations.
The food was absolutely incredible. The gnocchi especially is fantastic.
Food great as always. Server had a lot of tables. Could not keep up.
The only bad comment is that it was very noisy, we could not talk. The music was too loud!!
Arrived early and seated straight away. The food was exactly as we had it 18 months ago. Generous serving, amazingly fresh and bursting with flavour
A v established W Village restaurant targeted at young people, and not terribly welcoming to those over age 50. But Waxman's food is great.
Loved it~! The cuisine was delicious, excellent service and unique atmosphere!
We were visiting New York and wanted to try Jonathan Waxman's famous roast chicken. It did not disappoint! The chocolate budino was also out of this world! I'd love to go back and try the pasta.
Barbuto has been and continues to be my favorite NYC Spot for lunch or dinner.
Service was not good
Great setting with an energetic vibe. Felt so comfortable and casual for New York.
We had a great waiter that was "on"-food suggestions,wine pairings,etc. were spot on.
The gnocchi was awesome especially paired with the cauliflower and great shared as an appetizer.
Great calamari salad-so tender.
Only a few things were "off" in my opinion:
The Basque peppers in the lamb ragu were a bit overpowering with the vinegar component overtaking the flavor of the lamb and the great pasta. It may be normally not as bold.
Need to tweak the decaf coffee...there is a bitterness to it but it may be the way it was made that night .
Was excellent! The pasta carbonara is on the lunch menu and we asked and they gladly made it for us. The duck breast, chicken and pork shank were done perfectly.
Always a good time at Barbuto! Wonderful food and service. Will be returning again soon!
Casual and close to the Highline neighborhood near the Whitney Museum. Simple menu.
Best lunch I ever had. EVERYONE must go to Barbuto when in NYC.
This place is amazing! The food was amazing, the wine was great and with 4 very full bellies the bill was only $73 each including tip! Best dish; bruschetta or gnocchi. Only dish I really didn’t like was the mackerel, way too fishy for my tastes.
Food was excellent and the service superb
Excellent food and wine selection
The wine list itself is definitely worth a visit, and the clams was absolutely great!!!
Just wonderful. Truly delicious!
Casual business meal, so this was the perfect space. Not too busy on a Thursday, so we had our space. The industrial, garage feel was a nice respite in the sometimes stuffy neighborhood. Would definitely go back!
We were able to snag a last minute table on a 70-degree February day and had the most delicious spontaneous meal! The food, as always, was fantastic with highlights including Insalata di calimari (the perfect mix of indulgent perfect fried calamari on top of a spicy salad). My husband and I then shared the striped bass (delicious) and then followed with the pasta carbonara (decadently rich and delicious). Our server was also terrific at making requested suggestions.
We enjoyed everything, pasta, hangar steak, pork shank and chicken ...so flavorful and perfectly prepared! Our server was so friendly and helpful, made for a fun dining experience!
Great ambiance and incredible food! Came here to meet up with an former teacher who was in town and we both enjoyed the veal bolognese. Can't recommend this highly enough - melts in your mouth and is one of the best dishes I've had in a long time! Cocktails are amazing too!
Very good food and place...
I was expecting the full menu, but some options were not available for lunch...
still recommend for everyone
A little bit expensive
Food was good, but music very loud. More like a bar.
Wonderful Lunch, started with a couple 1919 cocktails which were quite tasty. We ordered the JW Chicken and the Carbonara. The chicken very moist, skin slightly crisp and covered with just the right amount of salsa verse. The Carbonara was cooked perfectly as well, just loved it! We will dine here again...
Loved it! Fun setting, personable service, great food.
Food was great except dessert. We all had the affogato and the espresso was so watery it was terrible.
Wonderful winter menu— we enjoyed gnocchi, swordfish, and chicken—excellent lazy lunch
Never disappoints. The chicken is to die for. Wine is always perfect. Dessert is like my Nona made it
Amazing service and fun atmosphere. Went with a group of four and enjoyed plenty of wine, delicious appetizers (kale salad and burrata are not to be missed), and a few of the main courses. Our favorites were the chicken with salsa verde and the squid ink pasta with crab and meyer lemon. Portions were big and everyone left full. Can't wait to go back and highly recommend.
Just as in the past, delicious food and fun vibe. Friendly and attentive waiter. Among our favorite dishes were the amazing chicken, duck breast, kale salad and , burrata with beets. Will definitely return again.
Came with my family to celebrate a 30th birthday. Food was fantastic and ambiance was just what we were looking for before heading down the street for after dinner drinks. Loved it and will be back!
