Freds at Barneys New York is a modern day bistro. The brainchild of Fred Pressman, son of Barneys New York founder Barney Pressman, Fred's has something on the menu for everyone. We offer only the best ingredients and use local farm healthy foods.

We were shopping all day and wanted an easy dinner. It was raining so the window view wasn’t great.

Consistently good food and service. Not noisy — can have real conversation. Low key and comfortable. Gracious staff.

I like Fred's, but please reserve. Service is not loving unless you go frequently

Our waiter was inattentive to the point of my embarrassment as it was my recommendation for our special lunch. Really horrible

What a missed opportunity with the venue’s branding, especially for a fashion forward retailer once known as a trendsetter. Front of house uninviting, boring menu design, stale interior, generic salt and pepper shakers. No discernible brand presence aside from the name Fred’s. Matchbooks? Paper coasters? Dull. Uninspired. However the food is dependably good and the service very attentive.

The Amish Chicken Livers are just stupendous!!! Also enjoyed the Vegan Salad.
We love coming to Barney's for lunch and shopping. Great, buzzy scene too:
ladies who lunch, Asian tourists who lunch, business execs who lunch,
and a sprinkling of celebs who lunch!

It was so cold in the area of the restaurant we were seated. We had to keep on our coats the entire time and drink hot tea to make it through lunch

Being told to wait outside in the hall twice is not a great welcome when one is on time. The table was jammed, and unstable. The waiter did his best. The salad was overdressed--not the best thing for pencil-thin ladies.

Fred's is always a treat. The scene is fabulous -- socialites, editors, designers, celebs -- and the food is great. Menu includes comfort classics (lobster club sandwich), salads, fish, steak. And the staff is super friendly. I can't think of a better way to spend a lazy Sunday.

Disappointing after dining there frequently for more than 10+ years the food and portions were ordinary but the prices were high for what you received.
