Birthday celebration thank you for the macaroons, the seating was too close to the bar and the staff where the staff were standing. I personally don’t like people stand over me when I eat , but everything else was wonderful.

We dine at Bistro Barbaret every couple months. This was our best experience ever. The fries for our moules frites and steak frites were as good as any we remember, My steak of that duo cut like a filet mignon. It was oyster night and the Massachusetts oysters were sweet and were a fun addition to the evening. Service was personal and attentive. The only tiny hick-up was the delay in the arrival of the oysters when they came in the middle of the salad course. But that made them no less delectable. We will get back at the first opportunity.

Barberet never ceases to amaze me. Chef Cedric Barberet is so talented. I literally drive almost 2 hours just for his bakery and bistro, which should speak for itself. The ambiance of the restaurant has a quiet, modern feel and the food is exceptional. I started with Terrine de Foie Gras, which had such a smooth and buttery texture over toasted brioche with the house jam then ended with both the Cassoulet Maison and Boeuf Bourguignon and both were amazing. The cassoulet consisted of a duck confit leg with sausage and pork belly over white beans in a tomato sauce. The Bourguignon had such a rich flavor broth which you could literally drink it was that good without too much of a red wine flavor. I literally soaked pieces of a baguette in the broth. Bakery speaks for itself so naturally I had to leave with goodies for me and my family. Thanks Barberet! Please open another location closer to me around king of Prussia! I guarantee you will do well!

Everything was delicious. We always enjoy our dining experience at Barberet. My favorite is the beouf bourguignon, while my husband prefers the bouillabaisse which is only available on Fri and Sat.

Food was great, place looked great but there were a bunch of kids crawling all over. If I’m dropping $100+ on a meal when we actually get a sitter I’d like not to have kids kicking the bench seat we are on.

Food was mediocre. Pasta dish was lacking anything special, the foie gras was overly salty, the short ribs had too many ingredients and the server was not friendly and frankly she made us feel like we were beneath her.
