What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.5

Burger & Barrel makes some of the better burgers in NYC.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

The food was great, but the seating was a little tight. Are table was across from the bar and when a group of people came in we had their rear-ends in our faces, which wasn’t that pleasant.

Easily one of the best burgers I have ever had. They just do it the right way. Fries are seasoned well and crispy. Definitely plan on returning, worth the trip downtown.

I like this spot bc it’s across the street from the Angelika theatre, it’s great for a pre or post movie meal. This time we started in the bar area but quickly moved to the back due to the noise level in the front section. I was a little disappointed that the menu I saw on Open Table wasn’t the menu provided. I was looking forward to the fish taco and steak salad but opted for the signature burger from the menu provided, which was delicious. For dessert we had the green apple crumble, it had a good balance of flavors and textures and was an excellent end to an easy evening.

I have eaten at this restaurant a few times before, and this time was not as good of an experience as it had been in the past. There were really no specials. The waitress that started our table, did not seem thrilled to be waiting on us. After she brought the bottle of sparkling water, another server took over, and she sat in the back to eat a plate of fries and what appeared to be a milk shake. We both had burgers. (BMC & Lamb)
When my date asked the hostess for another serving of aioli, she said "I don't think we have that. We have mayo." So she brought that. But in fact, the Lamb Burger comes with harissa aioli. My date was annoyed and did not want to even hear about dessert, and remarked that the hostess should stay at her post. I may give this restaurant a rest. No surprise that the place was dead on a Saturday night at 8:30pm

Been here a few times and the food is always good but this time the waitress we had was exceptional. Very polite and knowledgeable. I made it a point on departure to tell her what a good job she did.

I also liked sitting in the back this time. The area by the bar is much too noisy for conversation.

I will be back.
