Average. Taste, service, wine by the glass choices ... Everything very average!
Pasta was over cooked. Although the meatballs were very tasty.
Dregs in my glass of wine!
Next time I am sticking to the burger which is what I always eat here.
Also I always have lunch here, first time for dinner.
Back to lunch, back to the burger. Never dinner again.
Great food with very nice portion sizes. All the staff was very attentive and welcoming.
Fred’s is always the best for lunch!
The food is great. I’ve eaten there numerous times - this time the Maitre d was extremely rude. She would not seat us because we were a few minutes early even though there were tables for our party size available. Instead she seated people who came in after us with no reservation because they knew her by name. To add insult to injury she was very snarky. This is not how I choose to begin my meal. For the amount this meal costs, no one needs to be treated this way.
Excellent, as always one of my favorite places
Perfect day in every way, and the lunch only added to it.
Overall great time
Very good food and service. Delicious salad - iceberg wedge with blue cheese - but I think the most I have ever paid for a salad anywhere.
always a good meal and great service.
reservations are always recommended.
The waitress was so unhappy with her job, not just with us but with everyone she waited on. We were afraid to ask for anything because we didn’t want to get her mad. She never came once to ask us if we need anything, we had to keep asking busboys and other waiters to help us. She was scary to deal with. The restaurant was also very very loud.
Table was not very clean - dirty tablecloth, dirty fork, dirty glass. Salads are half the size they used to be but same price. Overall value for money has diminished.
A close friend and I shared a "between our birthdays" dinner.
The food was amazing and we cleaned our plates.
Dessert was simple and delicious.
We felt a little rushed to vacate our table...close to closing time,
but otherwise had a delightful time.
Curteous and friendly service
Fred's is the ultimate UES scene. Plain and simple. The food is always good but pricey. Very good bread. Best people watching.
Fred’s needs to up its game. How do you expect people coming to Barney’s spending $$ to eat sub par food with even worse service in a D-grade restaurant that hasn’t been redecorated in years. Between the chipped paint and the sad omelette I received, in addition to the self-righteous waitstaff, I will never set foot in Fred’s again no matter how many times I shop here.
MANHATTAN INSIDER LUNCH EXPERIENCE...with all the types ...can film a nyc lunch scene without casting...love the whole scene and the food is good too!!!
Nice return visit to Fred's with the granddaughters. Food still very good after all these years.
Our reservation was for 5:45 pm. There was only a lunch menu at that hour and the kitchen was closing. We were rushed. The place wad dead. I enjoyed it more on other occasions.
It was early on New Year’s Eve. Restaurant was quiet
As always, excellent food and very gracious service. We always feel at home there. We always recommend to friends.
We had Roy as our server, and he was extremely attentive & such a pleasure to speak with about the menu!
the burger was OK but the roll was ridiculous...not a brioche,not a regular bun but a hard very unimpressive roll. I specifically asked for NO ONION yet there it was resting on the tomato
Good quality and service, but overpriced for what it is.
Great spot to get an energy recharge while shopping
Nice food good service a bit uptight but good location for uptown shopping stop
The rudest wait staff ever! (However, the hostesses were lovely!) they literally cleared our table of our food & fries, while we were eating them. The rudest waiter we have ever had, zero personality, he was almost annoyed we were there.Very pricey for what we received, and I consider myself a “foodie”. I would never recommend this place, and I’m sad, bc several different people recommended it to us, and I had high expectations for it.
French fries were great! Service was mediocre. Ambiance is cool. Will definitely go back and try again.
The best food and scene as always. Love Freds for an excellent lunch.
My Husband & 2 Daughters have been coming here every Dec 26th for 20yrs & have enjoyed FRED's very much
The lasagna was truly exquisite. And the staff gave us a very nice seating. Thank you for making our day special.
The food, service and ambience is just okay. I feel like they used to be much better. I still go because it is convenient but they could use a face lift!
Always a treat. A very attentive staff.A great location for a holiday treat.
We had a lovely holiday lunch. Service was great, waitress personable and food delicious. It is expensive but worth the expensive.
There was a large chicken bone in my salad. The server did not seem to think there was anything wrong with that? Just took it away and didn’t charge me for it. He didn’t offer an apology or make any other gestures - very disappointing!
It’s all about the scene, and worth every penny.
The food is good here and I have always liked the ambiance But the staff carries a wave of entitlement that is obnoxious. You wait in line for your reservation to find out you cannot be seated until entire party is there. That is understandable during a busy lunch --but when my guest arrived 7 mins late, we had to stand in line again only to be told to wait for the maitre d. to call us. We were waiting at the door and i saw the maitre d' call 3 other guests. After 20 minutes, I had to stand in line again to complain. Their haughty answer was, "i did call your name' No. we were totally focussed on her every move, we would have heard her call our name. No apologies just total attitude. I don't need condescension for a $40 lunch entree.
Normally a reliable Sunday brunch spot, food and service were off this time
A must in NyC. Always go when I visit. Shopping after is always fun !
