Freds Downtown at Barneys New York
Food (pizza) was delicious. Service needs a lot of improvement (they were clearly having issues and were understaffed)
If you are going to charge 42 dollars for a salad it should hAve more than 3 cold shrimp!
My experience at Fred’s was quite enjoyable. The cocktails were refreshing and the service matched! John was super pleasant and very attentive. I’ll be back for sure to dine at Fred’s it’s truly a gem.
Always impeccable service. Five stars.
Loved it as always!
Ok for brunch. Startling prices for what it is. I’d pay that price if it was a cooler crowd. Good place to take parents and those who love fashion.
Always a scene
Always good fresh food with many options
Always willing to accommodate nutritional needs
Fun, classy, hip
They continue to be great - as you order just remember the main dishes tend to be large so order accordingly unless you like BIG meals
I dine fairly frequently at Fred’s and they were “off” tonight —- not enough staff.
They need to change their closing time. I was introducing someone to the restaurant and she was so nervous that it said they were closing at 8pm, not to mention the staff was very rushed and nervous which didn’t help.
Perfect lunch - food was delicious, service excellent. Perfect mother daughter lunch spot.
Amazing time at Fred’s as always
It was fun but not sure that it’s worth the price. Very pretty room with attentive service.
We arrived believing we had a much sought after reservation to an empty restaurant. That was fine. Our waiter John V had a serious body odour issue (underarm). It was so bad that each time he came to our table we held our breath. Our omelettes were adequate at best. All in all a disappointing visit to Fred’s.
Food was expensive; nice. Cocktails were incredible
Overall good food and service. Dessert items on menu were not available.
great food, service and atmosphere - my 6th visit and I will most definitely return
Martinis with the most ridiculously special olives - the heat was an exceptional surprise. Never had one prepared like that before and we will certainly return for more lol. Pasta dishes fresh and homemade. Even the sliced wheat bread was memorable. One of our favorite Sunday afternoon spots when we happen to come back to the apartment early.
We usually absolutely love this place. The manager and GM are both fantastic, but our server had attitude from the first conversation. He didn't listen, messed up our orders, and really didn't seem to care at all. It was really disappointing for a $250 lunch.
Always fun here - great food - very friendly nice staff and a great ambience and location
Fred’s at Barney’s Downtown is an understated, elegant space, nice menu options and excellent service.
Our entire table ordered the Thom Browne designer burger and it was outstanding - the add-on of the mini bottle of Moët was a nice touch!
Cannot wait to come back to my favorite lunch spot!
I love Fred's and eat at the uptown location frequently for lunch with friends and dinner with my husband. I usually order my favorite salad for lunch at the uptown location and ordered the same salad at the downtown location. The salad was really disappointing and nowhere near as good as the one I am used to having uptown. Also my friend had the french fries which are usually the best in the city and they were soggy and very average. At the end of the day it was a very nice atmosphere to meet a friend and catch up where the uptown location can be noisy and frantic for lunch, the service was fantastic and we were comfortable sitting at our table for almost two hours having lunch and catching up. That being said, I will be dining at the uptown location from now on.
Always have a great time at Freds for either a drink or a full meal. The bar tender and staff are amazing.
A pleasant restaurant for a relaxed but sophisticated meal
Exceptional service and food.
We love this place and visit again and again
Jimmy, our server, wins everything.
The service was less than normal for a mid-day visit. Always enjoy the consistency of the food. Disappointed no longer get points for visits here - detracts from the value.
A very late lunch so the room was quiet. Our server was wonderful and we stayed and chatted with no pressure to leave. We went specifically for a special menu and it did not disappoint.
Food service and ambiance all great and consistent.
Great food and service!
Wonderful as always
Love Fred’s. Food and service is great. And I love that they never rush you. You can take your time and have a nice leisurely lunch!
Our first visit to Fred’s downtown and we were delighted. Visually a very pleasing and attractive environment. The menu is delightful and not overwhelming. The only issue and really a complaint are the portion sizes. Take note when ordering
Thank you for a great experience! The Rick Owens burger was 10/10 👍🏻🙏🏼

Everything was great will be going back soon
I ALWAYS ENJOY MY FOOD AT FRED'S. CLOSE TO HOME AND ALWAYS WELCOMING
Mostly all was good with the exception of not getting our appetizer before our main dish.
And they didn't remove it from the bill.
Disappointing. We come to NYC once or twice a year and this is a place we always go for lunch. Maybe this was just a one off bad experience. Started off with my wife being sat at a table where another table backed on to ours with two women with long hair. The problem was that the tables are connected in such a way that their hair is resting on our table. I showed up a moment later and asked if we could be moved. While the hostess was very nice about moving us, she acknowledged the problem with the table - so why seat us there in the first place, as there were several other open tables. Most importantly, the food was not good. Looked forward to the always amazing chicken soup because have had it so many times. This time it had no flavour. Had to add lots of salt and pepper, but that only helped so much. I ate less than a quarter bowl. Waiter never even asked how it was or why so much was left. My favourite chopped salad with tuna also was different than past visits. Just lacked flavour like something was missing. Again - ate maybe half because was hungry. On the bright side - the fries are still amazing. Service was also disappointing which is unusual. Lack of attention. Chasing waiters for another drink or even for pepper, as ours was missing from the table. No one ever asked how things were. Again, maybe a one off bad experience and they are so busy that maybe they don’t care, but there are so many other great places to dine in New York that one of our New York regular places is off the list.
