dependably good food and interesting menu.
dinner is much calmer then the buzzy lunchtime ambience
The food was delicious. The tuna and halibut were cooked perfectly and the vegetable accompaniments made the dishes exciting. Not easy to do with fish . So great for the health conscious.
Not as upscale as the prices would suggest. Could use a freshening, embellishment
Everyone has an off day. But it’s how you manage it that speaks to character. Fred’s never disappoints even if there could be cause to. Good job all !
Very good food , we had the Srimp ravioli and the sole.
Food was blah.
Great food and service. Wonderful neighborhood and shopping restaurant
Very reliable and good every time.
Nice spot for lunch with Friends- great salad selections- French fries amazing - interesting dessert menu -
I have visited Freds many times with clients and it has always been a wonderful dining experience. However, the waiter we had for our Tuesday visit was borderline surly and not at all service customer friendly.
This is where the power house ladies come to lunch. Always a treat!
Always the best!
I eat here whenever I’m in NY. One of the hostesses was very rude. There were open tables but she wouldn’t sit us in any by the window. We were celebrating my birthday and she could have been more accommodating.
I love the great menu and the ambience of the place. It is my go to restaurant when I have somebody visiting from overseas. I think it is a great place for lunch.
Our server was wonderful! She was so pleasant and provided great service. We were celebrating a friend's birthday and she helped set the tone for our celebratory lunch.
Fred’s is perfect for dinner. Good food and service. Quiet enough for long conversations. Love it there. And the risotto was so goid
I arrived at the exact time of my reservation, then introduced myself to the woman behind the desk. Without looking up or welcoming me, she said "are you both here?” When I said my guest had not yet arrived, still without looking up she said “then you’ll have to wait.” I asked where - as there is only the reservation desk and the restaurant. She shrugged. I said “Do you expect me to just stand here?” She said “You can wait outside. There is a bench somewhere.” Really? I should have just walked out - but my guest had just arrived from London. I did not have his mobile to tell him to join me at a polite place. The restaurant was, at that point, at least half empty. There was absolutely no reason why I could not have been seated at our table. And even less of a reason why common curtesy was also not an option.
My wife and I have been going to Freds for 15 years. The atmosphere is always great and the food never disappoints.
i had the $38 (!!) palm beach shrimp salad and the shrimp weren’t good: dry and over cooked. the service was just ok-we sat with empty water glasses for a considerable period.
Everything was wonderful. I did ask for the main dining room which they did not accommodate. I mentioned that on arrival and I was told that hat they did not see that. I clearly wrote it on my reservation
Love Barney’s and Fred for dinner. Good food. Quiet ambiance. Great service. You can have a conversation!
Great for young families
Everything was great
Well worth the visit
I always make plans to lunch here every time I am in NYC and I always leave happy! My husband ordered an extra appetizer to share this time and it was honestly the best calamari we have ever had!
Always a great people watching place. Even got to see Michael Cohen before he does time! The chicken soup is fabulous and the livers are lovely. If only it went on sale once in a while!
Excellent food and service always. Favorite place to go to eat
Did not like the "backroom" section. Especially when the cold air kicked in.
Table next to us, mother daughter switched seats because of the "AC" coming from the vents.
Sitting at the bar was nicer
All restaurants should follow what the server at Fred’s told me... “Anything is possible at Fred’s”
Always the best experience.
As always, great food in a lovely relaxing setting. Superb service from a staff who always remembers our favorite drinks and food. Perfect spot for a business or personal evening out.
Consistently fabulous. Great menu, great bar, great people-watching.
The service is not great. The waiters don’t do a good job of checking back with the table to see if you need anything. Even to get a water or soda refill we had to wait a while before someone showed up or paid attention to us. Our order also came out wrong.
Busy place! Great service, and delicious brunch menu. What's not to love being on Madison Ave. in NYC at Barney's having a meal?
Thank you lunch :)
it's quite a noisy scene, especially during lunch hour with plenty of "housewives of somewhere" talking animately over each other and raising the noise level. More flash than class, it's not the best place for a business lunch or catching up with friends that value understatement.
Excellent food. Very clean atmosphere great as usual. Excellent service.
FOOD GREAT SERVICE EXEMPLARY; WE DINE THERE REGULARLY, & WAITSTAFF REMEMEMBERED TH AT I DRINK LILLET
SOUND LEVEL HAPPILY MODERATE
Has been consistent through the years with food, service and ambiance. Great place to meet up and have tete a tete conversations in the corner tables.
Very enjoyable experience as always. Good menu and noise level low.
We loved having dinner at Freds. The food was delicious. The service was friendly and professional. Altogether, it was a lovely evening.
The food was delicious! The calamari appetizer was amazing and the designer burger was wonderful. Our waiter was a little dry, but overall a really nice lunch. Would definitely go there again.
Overpriced and more importantly very very snooty. The hostess was arrogant, inflexible and insensitive to reasonable requests. The food and the wait staff were ok.
