Waiter was not responsive to our table. Chatted lots with staff and not waiting on tables or paying attention. Vegetables were hard as rocks.

Lunch time. Service was good. Except when I order a Coke, you should tell the patron you only have Pepsi. Don’t try to pass it off.
The food was just not that good. I ordered a shrimp dish that no where said it was peel and eat, so it was a messy disaster. Deviled eggs were good. Smoked salmon sliders were not good at all. Ambience was awesome though.

I ordered a buffalo chicken sandwich and mine was drenched and I mean drenched in buffalo sauce and it was only after eating the soggy mess did I realize that my friend’s dish (and she ordered the same thing) was a nice crispy chicken with a drizzle of of the buffalo sauce, so I basically was just eating soft buffalo chicken soup with bread. I couldn’t even take the rest to go because it was a mess! The coffee, which was 4 bucks!! Was just water with a touch of coffee in it. It was So weak and pointless to even have on the menu if they can’t make it right. The staff was nice and the guy who brought our food out was awesome but our waiter was so so and forgot about us when it came time to pay. We waited for about 15 mins longer after we asked for our check.

Won’t push to go back here anytime soon. Sad because I had higher hopes for this place.

Had a 9:30 brunch reservation, service was prompt and food was delicious. I thought it might be loud given how the restaurant was set up, but it was perfect for catching up with those I was dining with.

Service all the way from the host to playing the check was poor. Host took forever, server rushed us. When the check came never saw the server again. Had to pay through the manager that didn't seem to care. No one cares about you in this restaurant....

Very bland food, it’s simple food... simple food can be delicious if it’s executed correctly. No flavor, No love, No Chef?

Sent two dishes back, was very disappointed. Ordered a steak mid rare and it came blue... don’t know what that is? Google it.

Service was very bad, the guy that helped me had a language barrier and had no idea how to sell or explain the menu. The fact that he asked me two times if we wanted cheese on our vegan burger was just ridiculous. I legit explained to him that vegans do not eat animal products, and cheese is an animal product. He said... “ohh”
Really? Port training. He still got his 20% tip, it wasn’t his fault. Management sucks and so does the Chef. Wouldn’t be surprised if this place flops. Won’t be back.

Not a fan of forced communal tables but it wasn’t too bad. Our server was great. Ordered the pretzel to share (excellent) along with the grilled romaine salad (ok). Dinner was pub burger for him and chicken sandwich for me. Both were good, fries were great.

B&B sits on top of the Tyson's Hyatt promenade - along with Eddie V's, Shake Shack & others. We ventured in for date-night on Friday and it was packed with a mix of hipsters, millennials and families. So, a pretty eclectic mix. The restaurant is open-themed and trendy with a lively bar and standing tables. The food selection, especially the small plates was broad and diverse and the quality of the food was outstanding ( Pub Sliders, Smoked Aubergine and Crab-Avocado toast all get two thumbs up here). We only wished the noise level was a tad lower, which we wanted for our Valentine's Day dinner - but all in all a great place ! Will be back to sample the brunch !

Restaurant is located inside the hotel. The server was a bit forgetful, but he was very nice. Food was well proportioned and flavorful. Another waiter recommended the Delmonico over the Flat Iron because the fat content brings out a better flavor. The Flat Iron Steak that we ordered could have been seasoned a little better to get a nice char. Our preparation request was Pittsburgh medium and we had to salt and pepper it a little.
Overall the food was good, and I would recommend.

It was hard to find/get to if you aren't familiar with the area. Super loud due to happy hour. Appetizers (crab/artichoke toast and chicken sliders) were decent although the toast was a bit soggy. Of the 5 of us there, 3 of us had an entrée salad. Salads were just OK, bland. Tomato soup needing seasoning. A friend had the tomato/burrata sandwich another had the turkey salad sandwich, both enjoyed them. Be aware that the restaurant does not split checks into more than 4 and does not accept more than 4 credit cards (5 of us were there and could not split check down the middle with 5 credit cards). Our server wasn't good. Dumped tea on my leg/foot, didn't clean up the floor from spill and although he brought me a napkin for my leg didn't see overly apologetic about the accident. He barley stopped by table/not attentive, would catch him watching TV when we needed something and were trying to find him. 4 times tried to get his attention to give him our payment, final time he kind of rudely walked past and put his finger up telling us to hold on (honestly, the guy wasn't busy enough to warrant that). Would go again to try something other than the soups and salads but won't rush back any time soon.

We had a great time for my friend’s birthday. We ordered small plates and thought everything was pretty good. The sliders, Frito chile, and tater tots were highlights. Our server however was not the best. He seemed annoyed and distracted. A female server at an adjacent section was very nice though.

We got our food before our drinks, but the food was deliciously bougie. We shared appetizers: cheeses, tuna lettuce wraps, and crab avocado toast. The tuna was very flavorful, certainly the aphrodisiac. Strong drinks!

Wonderfully innovative menu in a very cool, loft-like atmosphere. Only downside is the noise, but that's what you get with such a popular place. Had the salmon and fried rice, both of which were delish, particularly the salmon.

This is my second experience at Barrel and bushel and it was disappointing. The service was good but the food was subpar. The BBQ sliders were so dry and tough and so was the crust of the apple galette. I almost sent it back but the server was so sweet.
