    We were greeted with a smile and seated at exactly the time of our reservation. The pace of service excellent. Our server was friendly and informative, without being intrusive. The ambience is chic. The noise level was quiet to moderate. My wife and I had no problem hearing each other speak. The food was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The appetizers we chose, Saumon Fumé and escargot, were creatively presented and delectable. For the main course, I had bouillabaisse which featured fresh monkfish, red snapper and shellfish. It was delicious. My wife had the lamb shank special which was finished with a veal demi-glace and fresh fresh summer peas. She said it was the best lamb she’s ever had. Dessert can be ordered from the menu, or you can pick something out in the bakery. We chose to get something from the bakery. We ordered a piece of Fraisier cake, which is only available during some summer weekends. If it is available, I recommend getting it. Of course, the bread, from their own bakery, supplied for the meal was fresh and crusty. The wine list offers red, white and rose wines from France, by the bottle and the glass. We cannot recommend this place highly enough. We will be sure to return.

    We went as a family of four with middle-school aged children to celebrate a special anniversary. There was a little gift bag of their macarons to acknowledge our special celebration. The service was very good. Our waitstaff was very responsive to requests. The food was very good. We ordered the large cheese and meat plate for an appetizer. The selection on the plate was good and went very well with the table bread. I believe everyone enjoyed their meal. My husband and I had classic French dishes (fish stew and beef stew), which were very good. The kids went with the mac&cheese and hamburger. The menu is best for adult tastes, but we wanted to try something different to celebrate. We opted to take dessert home because the meal was filling. We ordered treats from the bakery as we made our way out of the restaurant. The choice of items in the bakery was amazing. It was hard not to order one of everything.

    Our waitress, Kayla, was attentive, informative and efficient. The food choices were delicious and the desserts are amazing. Most of our group had never been to Bistro Barbaret before, but all were talking about returning to enjoy a meal again. We had 3 in our group who have dietary restrictions/allergies. Kayla was very helpful with food choices for them. In the bakery, the staff got out the manual to find a dessert with ingredients that would work for one of our group. They really went the extra step to ensure our visit was the best.

    My new favorite place!!! We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and we were able to pick out about deserts before we were sat at our table. The hostess noticed we were celebrating and gave us a little gift bag…so adorable! My husband said the steak rivaled the best steak houses in NYC. We were both very pleased with not one critique-which is rare for us. We will definitely be back!

    Returned here, again, last night to have dinner before the theater and, again, another stellar meal. Apps included the escargot for my wife, and the quenelle Lyonnaise for me. We shared the outstanding Barberet Caesar Salad. Beef Bourguignon for my wife as I couldn't resist the description of the evening's pasta offering. Both dishes were outstanding. Two Bistro Barbaret French Martinis and a glass of French Beaujolais blended perfectly with our dinners. On top of that, we were pleasantly surprised to have Savannah as out server. Knew her from a previous visit when she was behind the bar. She makes a killer Dutch Apple Martini. Desserts here are over the top and you can choose from the entire dessert case. We'll be back.

    I took my daughter, sister, mom & grandma for Mother’s Day. I wanted to go somewhere new & memorable. We were not disappointed. Initially, the menu was intimidating for a Sunday brunch. We’d anticipated more “bakery breakfast” than French gourmet. Once we adapted & got Rosie’s recommendations, everything we tasted was incredible. The cocktails were delicious. All of our meals and appetizers were amazing. The service was remarkable and the staff were so nice!

    Went to Barberet specifically for the tartiflette, which I haven't had outside of France. The best part of the traditional tartiflette dish is how creamy and gooey it is; the version at Barberet is tasty, but amounts to roasted potatoes, bacon lardon and pearl onions with a couple slices of raclette cheese melted on top. None of gooey creamy goodness that I was so looking forward to. We also had the beef tartare (fine, could have used more than three toast points), mussels in wine sauce (we didn't finish this dish--they were overcooked and didn't taste fresh), and the cassoulet with duck confit, which was the best part of our meal. Drinks were okay, just kind of lacked pizzazz. We ordered desserts from the bakery to take home, which we have not tried yet but which look delicious. Service was nice, no complaints. We were able to be seated at a table rather than the bar that we reserved because we arrived a few minutes early and appreciated the change. Verdict is out on repeat visit.

    My wife and I can in for our 8-year wedding anniversary. We were greeted with a smile and provided seats at the bar so that we could enjoy a cocktail before our reservation. I had reached out prior to arrange champagne for our table, when we were seated, it was chilled. Our waitress and support staff were outstanding and attentive without ever being overbearing. Our courses were expertly timed, and we were never once rushed to complete a course due to another already on the way. The food was wonderful and well seasoned. Estelle and Cedric are an outstanding team. We had a wonderful dining experience and would recommend it to anyone looking for a dining experience and not just dinner.
