We had a reservation for 8pm and they didn’t seat us till 8:45.
The drink menu looked amazing but we tried 4 at our table and were underwhelmed by them. They all were pretty bland considering how many ingredients they had in them. The food was overall great. I felt the short ribs were dry/tough but the sauce was good. Oysters were out of this world. The Kulches were yummy but didn't understand why they added parmesan to all of them? It's not needed. Service was pretty good...
Really enjoyed the appetizers. Particularly the Duck Kulcha , tuna salad,ribs. From the mains we the whole fish which was kind of small & just ok & Lamb Raan which was great! Good Tandoori Roti’s. The owner recommended butter chicken but we all found it sweet & did not really eat it. We also had Dal, which was good!
Food is very innovative. Service and ambience are great. Decent number of choices for vegetarian as well. Would certainly go back.
Amazing food and excellent service, this place has grown to be a favorite of mine very quickly. They offer a very unique twist on classic South Asian cuisine and their cocktails are original and incredible. The restaurant has a vibrant decor with music that enhances the dining experience without taking away from your ability to converse with others.
I recently hosted a surprise party here – reaching out to them was simple and the event manager was well-experienced and provided great assistance in helping to plan the event based on my budget. The staff provided incredible, highly-attentive service through-out the party and ensured the guests were comfortable and having a great time, they even let us close out the place without making us feel rushed in anyway. This is fantastic place to dine and I look forward to coming back here many more times in the future.
Food mediocre and did not sit well with me or my husband. Entrées came out before we received appetizers. Service slow.
Loved this new gem in the east village. Really liked the ambience. We were pleasantly surprised with this new place. We reserved a 6:30 spot and the place was almost dead. As we drew closer to 7pm and we were a drink even, the place started filling up very quickly. Loved the small and large plates. Thought the chef was playing it very cautious with the spice levels. For example the chutneys in the small plates were on the side and not mixed in.
The only small hiccup was the dessert. That’s been my problem with all the Indian restaurants in the city. There is no authentic dessert on the menu. I ordered cassata and I was expecting a cassata slice from an ice cream on roadsides of Delhi back in 1995. Instead I got a small slice of some home made ice cream floating in some kind of syrup and that too not alone...yes the ice cream was floating with some stale strawberries. Ruined it a little for me.
Would love to go back to this place but please up your game in desserts.
Their cocktails menu is awesome! Will be back for more...
I was disapointed that we were not seated inside as per my request. Our table outside was fine but the ambiance outside is NOTHING like the ambiance inside. Also the music being played inside was really good but unfortunately we could not hear it outside.I will go back as long as I can be seated inside.
Food was very delicious and innovative. Presentation was lovely and wait stuff was very courteous. Nihari, squash curry with lotus stem koftas were to die for.
Great ambience, decor and a very fun modern take on Indian cuisine ! Portions are great and we were stuffed but will be back to try more dishes !!
The food and drinks were great. We ordered Hyderabad Kheema, Dhahi poori, Malia chicken tikka all from small plates menu and everything was excellent.
Amazing food yet again.
This is my third time at Baar Baar. I love the creative food - the Chef has created a fabulous, lengthy and innovative menu without trying too hard to be fusion-y. Loved everything I have had here.
The vegetarian food was disappointing!
Great food and presentation. Not easy with this cuisine. Authentic taste and interesting twist! And retails the taste essentials. Attentive and knowledgeable staff! Keep up the good work.
Great flavor in all food and handcrafted drinks. Excellent service staff as well.
Amazingly delicious food! So creative and loved the ambiance!
This is a new restaurant which definitely is having lots of good reviews which prompted us to check it out. It is Indian fare with a modern twists. Most flavors are still true to roots making it delectable. I loved how they had the crispy spinach fritters on the aloo tikki, but cream instead of dahi on not so crispy dahi-puri - not so much.
The food tasted good but most dishes were served almost cold. Maybe it was weekend rush, and I might come again to give it another chance.
Went there for restaurant week dinner. Food was amazing, not in a way as traditional Indian cuisine taste, but was great. From drink to food. Everything was just right on spot. Love this place and will definitely come back again.
Terrible place, awful customer service and very rigid staff did not accommodate when we wanted to share only one restaurant week menu
Spicy, imaginative food. Be sure you confirm the level of spiciness before ordering to avoid a problem. The noise level, especially the too loud music made conversation difficult.
I felt your other restaurant in San Francisco “Rooh” was much better.
Highly recommended. Will be back.
What a fabulous experience. This is what Restaurant Week is all about. I haven't been in that area in umpteen years (Bowery/East Village/ Lower East Side). But I would now go more often just for Baar Baar.
The managers and wait staff were extremely knowledgeable and friendly and willing to talk to us and we learned that the chef is from West Benghal (Islamic influences--there is beef on the menu) and that he also lived and worked in France. And so things that you would not expect at an Indian restaurant appear on your plate: parmagian cheese with tandoori mushrooms; an amuse bouche of spiced mashed ingredients topped with yogurt in real pie crust. Even the raita was different and had chunks of avocado in it. We loved EVERY bite. The wine selections were decent. The place is spacious and comfortable, with different areas so that it is intimate and spacious at the same time. I can't wait to go back and try other items on the menu. Easy to get to by subway.
Really enjoyed the food!! The Lamb keema was a favorite of ours. It was a great place to have an anniversary dinner. We were offered an off menu wine that really made the meal. Comfortable yet slick atmosphere. We will go back!
Loved every thing about the restaurant! Will definitely go back!
There was a huge piece of hair in our food. However the waiter was extremely apologetic and made amends for the incident. Unfortunately that put a bit of a damper on being able to enjoy the rest of the meal
Overpriced, uninteresting Indian food. Went for Restaurant Week dinner. The tandoori mushroom upma was over salted. Stick to curry hill
The food was excellent and the cocktails were both interesting and delicious. Table service was good and attentive. The only thing I can really criticize is the cleanliness of the bathrooms.
We went to Baar Baar on date night with my husband during Restaurant week. We loved it. I’m a fan of Indian cuisine and I appreciated the modern take. The portions were just enough and the food very tasty. Good wine list too. The service was great and fast. Loved the ambiance and decoration, spacious yet cozy. I highly recommend and we are already planning to go back.
My Boyfriend and I went out to try a new spot this Friday and we were pleasantly surprised. Each dish was full of flavor and the service was spectacular. Do yourself a favor and support this amazing restaurant!
Went for restaurant week and was not disappointed! They had a great menu with different options and a friend I went with had a dietary restriction and they were extremely accommodating towards. The service was outstanding, never had an empty glass or dirty plate on the table. I have had better butter chicken, but the lamp app was excellent and the carrot cake with saffron pistachio ice cream desert I had was one of the best deserts I have had in a very long time. Overall would come back for sure.
Absolutely excellent food & ambiance. Refreshing modern Indian cuisine. Most Indian cuisine in the States is traditional. Baar Baar replicates a newer hipper and more modern scene in Mumbai. The food is some of the best Indian I have had and it's very elevated. Ambiance is fun.
Really great food. Not only was it innovative but also presentable. The vegetarian dishes were spot on.
Superb food -- different and special. Great and friendly service.
Came here for Restaurant Week. We ended up waiting over an hour for the food to arrive-- a comment was made to make us think it was related to the fact that we were there just for Restaurant Week. The table runners kept looking confused like they didn't know table numbers and would walk up with food that wasn't for our table or walk away with food for our table when it wasn't properly times with the rest of our party's. The manager who came to apologize for the long wait seemed unapologetic because he only made his way over once the food actually arrived. Our waiter was nice--he seemed to feel bad for the long wait and the confusion, like it was out of his control. Food was tasty but the experience is what makes me not recommend this restaurant.
Really great service
This was our first time at Barr Baar. What a beautiful space! The small plates were great - especially the Potato Tikki. The main courses such as the Malai Tikka Mac and Cheese was notable as well. The service was poor though - we never received an item we ordered, received something else in it's place and there was no adjustment on the bill. We also received a few wrong orders and had to turn them away.
The ambiance of the restaurant is very nice. The high top seating feels luxurious. There were many managers walking around who were very friendly, but our server didn't come by very much. I ordered a glass of wine, which was nice, so I ordered another one. I was about 2/3 of the way through while closing out the check that I noticed something was floating around at the bottom of my drink. I don't think I noticed it earlier b/c it was stuck to the glass, but with time it had loosened, and it was gross. I couldn't even bring it up to the server b/c we had asked her about some food we had packed up (it didn't seem that all of it was packed) and she shrugged it off and said talk to the busser about it. Not a great ending to an otherwise nice evening. Food was very good, but they upcharge based on the menu that is posted online. Everything was 1-3 dollars more...which can add up on every item that you purchase. But, overall an ok experience.
