Le Bar A Boeuf
Normally the service here is adequate but when busy there can be real confusion about how long you will wait for your dinner. We decided to order some soup and salad while we waited after our server explained that the wait would be longer due to being busy. Then as soon as we received our soup we were informed that our entire was up. We never would have ordered the soup knowing that and only did so because of what the server had told us. It created a somewhat confusing experience/
Really nice...food excellent.......parking always a hassel!
My guest and I had a car problem in the garage. The staff and Jean- Robert himself could not have been nicer. Instead of becoming upset that we were blocking the driveway ( we were!), he offered us all a drink and a dessert!
AND the food was yummy!
The only negative is that the windows are not well insulated and a window seat, while lovely, is pretty chilly !
Service was VERY slow. Food was just okay. Won’t hurry to go back. It does have a nice view.
We love this place. It lacks in the decor but makes way up for it in food quality, taste and presentation. It’s a little slow in coming but the wine list and cocktail choices make up for that minor shortcoming. This is a keeper!
New Year’s Eve tends to be a crapshoot when it comes to a good dining experience.
La Bar A Boeuf was a wonderful surprise and well worth the gamble. An intimate, quiet setting with superb special small menu for the holiday. My halibut was delicious, my husband’s osso bucco was incredible, but the roasted beet salad will have us making a return trip. The service was attentive and prompt. All in all, a memorable night.
We went for an early dinner on New Year’s Eve. We had never heard of it but found it on Open Table. Appetizers and dessert were good but not really memorable. We both ordered the Filet and both thought they were excellent. I would go back and try it again when it’s not a set menu.
Beautiful room, delicious food, excellent service!
Have not been disappointed with meals at Le Bar A Boeuf. Two in our party were here for the first time. Our table of 4 shared the Steak tartare which was enjoyed by all. Meals: trout amandine with lemon flavor and toasted almonds on top added to the flavor of this meal, a filet prepared rare to perfection, nice preparation on the Rock Fish special and a beef meal from the Boeuf menu section with boursin and onion compote which was prepared as expected. All skipped the desserts as there was no room to spare for additional food. A great restaurant.
Our pre-theater dinner for a family of 6 was fun, delicious, perfectly timed and well suited for a variety of ages and preferences. We each had custom burgers with soups and salads of our choice, plus a lobster béchamel mac n cheese for the table (to DIE for). Truffle butter on bison was a highlight! All four wines we ordered were smooth and unctuous and well paired with the beef. And the jazz trio coupled with the sunset view of the river made it hard to leave for our show!
The food was very tasty, but particularly the French Onion soup was superb! The bread pudding was also quite good.
Waiter was great and offered recommendations. The duck was great as well as the mahi mahi special.
Amazing! Food was incredible and staff was perfect!
Excellent food. Service was pleasant but we felt quite rushed.
The food is Jean Robert amazingly good and the staff are really go out of their way to show what service means.
Good food good value great ambiance
Our server Larry was outstanding!! Food was a little disappointing but overall a great night!!
Was recommended by Frieda. Went for my husbands birthday. The food was 1st rate. Nice, sophisticated, quiet ambiance. Highly recommend.
Great. We loved the food and the service was super.
Always excellent food,service and ambience. My wife's favorites are the liver and hamburger;mine are the trout and the veggie mac and cheese.Perfect place for before or after Playhouse in the Park.
Larry is a wonderful server and we had a terrific time!!
We were there for Beaujolais which they did indeed have. The fireplace is so nice now that it is getting cold. Our service was good as was the food.
Excellent food and a terrific server made for a delicious evening!
Although the dining room had many empty tables we were seated next to the kitchen . This should always be the last resort as it was noisy and lots of servers going in and out . We were not offered bread and did not have the opportunity to ask as no one came to check after food was delivered . The entrees were good . The food was hot . Liver entree and Scallop special . Service and servers attitude can make the difference I overall experience.
Great food but we had very inattentive waitress. Hopefully just an off night
Very nice salads. One guest had trout, said it was good. Another had the scallops - also good. Two of us had the beef burger w/béarnaise. Burgers cooked as ordered. Béarnaise was thin and oily - a disappointment.
Two at our table ordered the scallops and they were prepared to perfection. Another in our party had the trout and the individual thought the trout was the best he has had in the city. He stated the chef's preparation was perfect. The other person in our party had the cordon bleu and the preparation was unique and very good. A description won't do it justice. One will simply need to give it a try.
We have eaten here many times, but this was one of the very best experiences. Our server, Tom, was excellent --- just the right amount of attention. Food was even better than usual.
Food was delicious. All menu items have a nice twist or unexpected ingredient. We both had seafood dishes. Next time we really will try the beef!
I had four courses: two were excellent (soup and salad), one was a very good foie gras (not as good as recent ones at JR's Table), one was good (crab cake, which, to be fair, I asked to be pan fried instead of their normal deep fry. Probably should not count as a judgment when the chief has to stick a special prep into the schedule on a busy night.). Service was outstanding: very attentive and pleasant. Price value is very good by my standards.
Good portion size and service fairly quick.
Much better / faster than a high end restaurant we ate at earlier in week (not L ). Truly a value for good creative dining
It was a good place with a great view.
Horrible. We had to send out burger back. Asked for medium and got raw. Still inedible even after they attempted to cook it. Still raw in center. Bread pudding was dry and cold in the center. Must have been weeks old and they attempted to microwave it. Complained by manager and waiter didn’t seem concerned. They could have at least comped our drinks given food was awful. Waiter commented hopefully it will be better next time. Will not be a next time. We will not go back and will tell everyone how bad experience was. Restaurant ‘‘twas not busy for a fri night. Wonder why???? And it took forever for kitchen to make order even with restaurant being slow
My 17 year old son took his HOCO date there a couple weeks ago and was rushed out the door and not offered dessert. The restaurant was basically empty. We sent him there because I've always had very good experiences with both service and food. I called the restaurant to share my concerns, but no one returned my call.
Bartender got in a yelling match with a customer... inappropriate regardless of who was at fault.
Attended with my 18 year old granddaughter from Salem, OR. She loved it.
Dinner was delicious, definitely recommend the artichoke appetizer!. Overall great dinner and evening!
First time there. Impressed with the food service and the view. LARRY was very attentive and very experienced and explaining the different foods. Had a great time and will return
We have dined at Le Bar A Boeuf many times but not recently. It just hasn't been "on our radar" but it should be. Regardless of your attire, you will be made welcome and comfortable. Intimate, cozy spaces, efficient staff and a bar that you don't want to leave. Parking is free and easy. We were with friends we had not seen in 20 years since they last lived here. They loved it, as did we. The steak tartare was fabulous and I cleaned my plate of the beef liver. Our server, Thomas, understood our need to reconnect with our friends after so many years and his approach was perfect. Never felt rushed. Courses well timed.
The food is delicious very french traditional with an American twist. The service is too slow.
