We loved the service, the food and the ambiance. Our chef even took the time to introduce us to Henry, our beautiful red snapper, prior to preparation. Upon serving Henry, the head, tail and bones were removed; it was moist and simply delicious!!

I've been to the restaurant several times. The menu changed to more of a price-fixed menu. I feel that $16 for a squash appetizer when ordered separate from the price fixed menu is ridiculous. The octopus was slimy and not enjoyable -- I've had octopus many times at other places and this was not cooked correctly. The kale salad was tough - the leaves were too big and not tender. Overall, I thought the it was overpriced this time for the quality of the meal.

This was by far the WORST dining experience I have EVER had. It was four of us and we sat down at 1130 and we still had not received our order by 1. The waitress was not friendly and didn’t bother to check on us. They brought out my yogurt and I sat and waited and waited and waited for my family to get EGGS!! This was also while I was watching other tables complain and get burgers. We addressed the issue with one of the managers and she said they were working on getting us our food and when she repeated the order it as all wrong! Her excuse was that the ordering tickets machine was wrong but last I checked a pen and paper works fine when taking an order non the less a correct order. After giving them one more shot we waited another 30 minutes and STILL did not get food!! We ended up walking out and going to have a lovely lunch at Hillstone. Mind you I am about 9 months pregnant and not feeding a pregnant woman after she sat down for 2 hours is not smart. Also the other head manager was on his phone not helping at all with all the craziness. Horrible Horrible Horrible!!! Would NEVER go back.

Our experience was amazing. My boyfriend and I went on a brunch date and it was perfect. Our server(shah N) was great. He was upbeat, energetic, and hospitable. The food was great. I had the steak & eggs and he had the chicken and waffles. The music was also spectacular. It literally made us not want to leave. Overall, the food, music and service were impeccable. We look forward to dining here again!!!!

A pleasant surprise! Three colleagues and I stopped in for a lunch meeting. Eash had the Prix Fixe lunch, with one apetiizer, one main, and a chocolate cookie for dessert. Diverse menu options, all delicious and artistically presented. For $29, a bargain!

Food was fine or better than fine - They did not have the usual roasted potatoes and did not inform us of such. Our waitress was rather clueless or overwhelmed not sure - but she took forever to deliver our drinks and was not on the ball when it came to replenishing the beverages.

We spoke to a waiter who had waited on us on a previous occasion and he was totally responsive.

Food was consistent but the level of service is totally dependent on your server.

Food was good, but nothing we got are particularly great. Bottomless brunch was a good deal and I liked the trio of juices that you get and that they leave the bottle on your table! It was especially needed since the service was majorly lacking - after sitting down, we needed another minute before ordering, but they couldn’t get the waitress’s attention for 20 mins after we’d decided!

Food was fine but there was unconscionable horsing around and shouting in the kitchen, and busboys were replacing silverware and dumping ice in the bar with no regard for ambience. My friend was trying to tell me about the death of his sister in law from cancer while the kitchen was hooting and hollering at 10am

This was our first time. I picked it because of the photos on Open Table and the menu! The staff were phenomenal, the wood grill created a wonderful aroma and the food was outstanding! We had oysters, beets, nectarine dish, artichokes, and scallops for starters. All were amazing. The main courses were presented beautifully, cooked to perfection, and we had a hard time deciding which to get. Try the duck and pork chops and rigatoni! The desserts too were fun and different and oh, so tasty. The fruit was how fruit should taste. Sweet by itself.

Had only been for a drink at the bar, this was my first meal. Met a friend for an early dinner and had restaurant week menu. Apps were inedible - tasteless ceviche and bland burrata that had a hard, gel-like crust. Mains were good - lucky for us. Would stick to the bar next time. And the pic of Isaac Hayes.

I would give Bedford & Company five stars for the food. My Arctic char was absolutely delicious, moist and perfectly cooked with very tasty crispy skin. My friend enjoyed the chicken, which looked delicious and after eating her fill was actually able to take some home. The oysters were OK, but not served with cocktail sauce, nor was any available from the kitchen. Their vinegar-based liquid was familiar, but not what I wanted. But they definitely had me at the char! One of the best fish dishes I've had in a long while, and I order fish always. The lowered rating is because of the ambiance, which is dark, no natural light except at the front of the restaurant, and the furniture is somewhat dark, though attractive. My friend was waiting for me and immediately commented on the low level of light upon my arrival, and I had to agree with her. But, the char!!

The place really needs to work on its service. When I visited Bedford & Co. it was not busy, yet the server had to be waved down just to get some more water. The food is alright, nothing with a wow factor, but the ambiance and decor were nice. I would probably only come back here to sit at the bar.

Food was good, if unimaginative---very middle of the road American. Fries and crispy artichoke were good; steak was more medium than medium rare and reginetti was overcooked. Service was good. The ambience was stylish, but note there is almost no phone reception. The music was too loud. Better for a weekend dinner rather than a business lunch.

INCREDIBLE meal and wonderful service. I cannot emphasize enough how lovely the hostess was. She greeted us and then checked in throughout our meal. The duck was out of this world. We already booked another dinner here. (Only improvement suggestion: lower the music and add some sound panels to the ceiling).

Bedford & Co. was by far one of the best brunch experiences I’ve had and I brunch practically every weekend. The food was delicious, the ambience is great, and the service was excellent. I also loved the fact that they give you bottles of champagne and different flavor mixers and allow you to control your own tempo as much bottomless brunch places bring you one drink at a time and take forever to bring you the next one. The music was great as well. Just an overall excellent dining place and I will Ben back.. often

We shared a burger and the duck breast. Food was very good. The only thing is that it would be nice if the duck had a side dish with it such as a vegetable and/or grain. At $32 dollars, it seemed odd that they would just serve the duck breast with a frisee of some sort. Other than that, the food was very good (the burger came with fries). We also had the friend artichoke which was good but a bit oily. Very noisy so be prepared for that.

We really enjoyed our dining experience and look forward to returning to try more of their food. Everyone enjoyed the freshness of the fish both in the appetizer ceviche and the entrée. I can't say enough praises about the staff; thank you for making us feel so important and not rushed. The martinis were perfection. A great value during NYC restaurant week.

Sauvignon blanc was tasty, but expensive. Expensive overall and smaller portions, but the food was very good, as was the service. We ordered the crispy artichokes, seared scallops and burrata to start, which were all delicious. I got a special soft shell crab small plate for my entree which was good...I also prefer it sautéed, but this was lightly fried. It was served with a lot of greens, which was a very nice balance though. Made the dish seem lighter. My companions all ordered the rigatoni and loved it. Small portion though, and they wanted more but agreed everyone left full and not over stuffed.
