                                                      Mixed review. Food was very good which is the most important. Ambiance was very nice. However Wine by the glass was overpriced. No bread with the meal. No espresso coffee available. Regular Coffee was overpriced. Had to ask for cream and then the cream was sour.

                                                      A friend and I visited B2 about 2 weeks ago for dinner because we'd never heard of it, and we were pleasantly surprised. The food, drinks, and our server were OUTSTANDING so I decided to join them again for Brunch yesterday to celebrate my sister's birthday. I must say it was equally as superb! I've not had one thing yet in my visits there weren't sinfully good. The Catfish, the crab legs, the grilled octopus, the seafood pasta is all divine. Some of the highest quality seafood and perfectly cooked/seasoned I've had ever. Our Lobster Benedict and Shrimp and Grits were just as perfect. I can't believe I didn't find out about this gem any sooner. I will very easily return her again and again and be sure to bring someone new every time I do. To note, I had totally different servers on both visits, but they were both equally personable, kind and helpful. I will say although the food is exceptional, it's still a tad pricey.

                                                      B2 also known as Billie's Black is one of the most beautiful and noteworthy restaurants in Harlem. I have been a patron for years and this feels like my second home. The owner greets her patron with either a handshake or hug. It really makes you feel welcomed in their space. It is just an awesome space. The food is amazing. Everything on the menu is to die for. Not to mention the menu is diverse and the wine selection is stellar. I love B2 and I cannot wait until my next time to experience the Fall Brunch!

                                                      I took my dad to B2 Harlem for his birthday. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful! The staff was super friendly from the time we walked in to the time we left. I don't remember our waiters name, but he was super attentive, but not overbearing. And OMG the food!!! We couldn't even get desert lol. My dad was so focused on how beautiful the place was, he kept saying it every 5 minutes. I'll definitely be going back.

                                                      uncommon menu and hand-crafted drinks. a gem, really. emblematic of the vibrancy of the Harlem Renaissance. Evr3ythign about it was great: food, service, ambience, speciality drinks. portions are not huge and its a little pricey, but none of that is unexpected. go in with your eyes open and you will not be disappointed. great date restaurant, for sure. I can hardly wait to go back.

                                                      When you go to Harlem, brunch might not be the first thing to come to mind, but we had Sunday brunch at H2. The coconut lime pancakes were divine. Very short stack but the texture of the pancakes was perfect. Crispy on the outside and fluffy and pillowy on the inside. Shaved coconut and a hint of lime with a very light touch of syrup or glaze. The yummiest pancakes I ever had. Also, the corn soup was delicious. The is a gem of a neighborhood restaurant. I want to go back for dinner--maybe my next trip to NYC. The service was attentive as well.

                                                      I chose this restaurant based on the recommendation from a associate. I went for my friend's birthday. I went for their brunch menu. The overall design of the restaurant is lovely. When you walk in you're immediately faced with their amazing bar. The host immediately greeted us and sat us really quickly. I ordered their lobster hash (egg fried hard). It was very delicious I would definitely order it again. My only negative thing about the meal was the size. It was not enough and I had to order a side of Mac n Cheese. The waiter was very attentive and pleasant. This is definitely a place to check out. lol

                                                      Many items on listed menu were not available, champagne warm, server a little non-attentive (staff seemed more focused on making a video of the bartender making a cocktail), food was excellent when choices were finally made. Ok for a casual neighborhood spot

                                                      B2 Harlem is a nice addition to the Harlem food scene. I remember when it was Billy Blacks and the food was great, but the ambiance wasn't as up to par. B2 has a lovely décor and the service is impeccable--the waiters are attentive and are all around sweet and happy people. The cocktails are creative and well executed. I am adding this to my Harlem restaurant list for sure!

She and her chef and staff have done a great job. Great ambiance. Food was outstanding, especially fresh oysters. Drinks were fun. Bartenders willing to work with you on your own favorite. Greatmean and evening and great birthday celebration. I look forward to my next meal there.

The room, with the windows open to the street, was comfortable and casual and warm (not temperature, atmosphere). There were families at one table, a group of 20s/30s at another and other pairs of adults as well. It felt like and interesting and diverse clientele and made dinner that much more relaxed.

                                                      Dinner was fantastic!! Fried catfish appetizer was lightly crisp & seasoned perfectly, soft shell crabs, penne pasta with artichokes, crawfish tails & lemon cream was heavenly. The cream brulee with pistachios and the beignets were divine. The space is so charming, intimate and calming, dark and moody. Perfect for a date, small gathering or business lunch. Our server was handsome and attentive. The owner/manager, not sure was a lovely lady who came to the table and welcomed warmly. Did I say I loved the space? Amazing food and I'm returning to try everything on the menu!! Go now to B2 Harlem...run, don't walk.

                                                      This was my fourth time at B2 Harlem, so clearly I am a fan. The food was good and the drinks were amazing (the Katana is out of this world.) I was slightly disappointed with our waiter. He was not very friendly nor was he attentive. We had to ask him on numerous occasions for water. I have only had great experiences there, so I was a bit put off. Needless to say, I will certainly be back, but hope that the waiter was just having an off day!

                                                      Haven't been to the new B2 since the owner changed from Billie Black it's has a different ambience and menu but still has the best staff to go with the change. Keep up the great work

                                                      My family dined at B2 this year for Mother's Day. Our group of 5 was a lil cramped in our seats by the window, that consisted of three small tables pushed together. There seemed to be a table that was better suited but we were told that a party of 7 was coming shortly. (The table was empty the entire time we dined) The food was good, and came quickly. Once we paid the bill we were talking and our waiter proceeded to nice/nasty rush us so he could seat another group. The restaurant is small and cozy, better suited for a date.
