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.

Service was slow and not thorough, even though there were only 6-8 people dining in the entire restaurant! Food was pretty good, but I can get better food and much better service elsewhere.

Friendly service and good food but don’t order a martini. Despite a lovely bar and a straightforward martini order (gin up, very dry and a little dirty), they just couldn’t get it right.

Probably the best pure burger I've had in New York City. Menu doesn't have all the bells and whistles of other burger restaurants, but in terms of pure burger, it was great!

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.

We ate at B&B a few months ago while visiting NYC. This past week business brought us to White Plains, NY : a city 30 miles north of SoHo.

We braved a commuter train and subway ride coupled with a brisk walk for a late lunch at B&B. The effort was worth it. We both had excellent veggie burgers with fries that was preceded by ricotta toast with pomegranate, roasted pecans, honey and chilie flakes. They should package and sell it!

Staff was as friendly on a slow hour as they were before during prime time.

Another great meal.

I learned about this from the Food Network show Burgers, Brew & ‘Que. I was traveling to NY and had to try it. I had the Bash Burger and it was amazing! I usually use ketchup no matter the burger, but this one I didn’t as it ruined the great flavors. The onion rings were also light yet crispy. Well worth the trip.

One of my favorite brunch spots, especially when I'm craving a burger. The fiance and I both love the Bash Burger and their Bloody Marys (although they no longer put bacon bits in them, which was our favorite part). Service was wonderful, and people watching is amazing by the window.

Overall very average meal, went for the burger that was a 6 time winner. The meat was cooked perfect and very juicy, under seasoned though. The bacon jam, caramelized onions, and special sauce just made for a sloppy mess. The frozen French fries where very disappointing and the bun was average. The onion rings on top of the burger where cooked perfectly.

While the burger was good overall just wasn’t impressed with the experience. Menu online isn’t updated, they no longer serve prime rib unless you order it ahead for a group dinner. The buratta ravioli itself was good but sauce was very watery and presentation was poor. They also were out of the carmenere on the wine list and didn’t bother to suggest another option.

I was looking forward to the bash burger as the restaurant boasts it winning 6x best burger in NYC. Flavors were great but I wish there was more texture - adding lettuce/tomato would have brought it to the next level - at least for my tastes. The fries were not great - they tasted a bit stale but maybe my table got a bad batch.

The ambiance and music was nice but it was rather dark - I couldn’t read the menu without the table candle or cell flashlight. Service was great, my water glass never went empty and the staff was very kind.

What an off night! The four of us made reservations for dinner at 8:15 this past Saturday. Service was really slow, communication was poor (we had three different people ask us if we wanted drinks, and then our drinks took 20 minutes to arrive and were incorrect when they did) and everything seemed to take longer than it should. Side dishes were all delicious- loved the tater tots, brussels sprouts and grilled broccoli- but their award-winning burger and fries were delivered cold, and my fiancé couldn't taste any evidence of bacon jam on his burger. We would not return.

The service was terrible. It was not crowded yet we did not see our waitress for 40 minutes. We had finished our drinks by the time the appetizer arrived, and did not see the waitress or have another drink until we were almost done with entree. At some point, someone in a suit, presumably the manager, asked if we needed anything. We ordered another beer, it never came.

So although the service was terrible, the burger was awesome.
