Octopus and calamari appetizer was small but delicious. The wedge salad was not a wedge but a sloppy spill of strips of romaine and over powering blue cheese. The fish special was poorly plated, tasty but had the sauce just spilled on top. The bread offered was stale. Not worth the money with s many other options.

What a lovely place to dine. The setting and the service are outstanding. The menu is varied and interesting but spicing could use a bit of an oomph. A $55.00 hamburger tops the price list. Interesting if a bit much. We keep coming back. The food is quite good. The location, the ambience superb.

Although we often dine at Fred’s, we’re always impressed with the great menu and lovely, professional staff. We bring friends, business associates and even our little 2 1/2 yr old granddaughter and always have great, fun dinners.

Thus is a hard one. An overpriced scene in a fun store with a good location. If you don’t mind the obscene prices for the food quality it’s fun people watching.

Usually terrific. Everything was off today. Under salted. Undercooked. Just not its usual. Even the service wasn’t as attentive as usual. Still a fan but I hope this isn’t a trend.

Dinner at Fred's was always pleasant, far less noisy and busy than lunch. It seems however they lost their good chef. The salmon had an odd smell. A salad was garnished with concentric rings of, I guess, balsamic dressing. Wine was not good. What happened??

Service was outstanding! My friends enjoyed their meal. I however had the worst meal ever for $38. I eat crab cakes all over NYC. The crab cake was slimy, the coleslaw tasteless & the salad was not fresh. So just don't order this dish at Fred's!

They didn’t even have my reservation in their system. I had to prove it with a email confirmation and wait almost 15 minutes for a table, and I was on an extreme time crunch. Extremely disappointed.

I attended Fred's on the 16th to celebrate my daughter's 24th birthday. I did mention on open table reservation to please acknowledge her birthday. They did not at all. I attended another restaurant on the 25th for my sons 26th and did the same, and again nothing Disappointing but delicious lunch.

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.

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.

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.
