When we entered the restaurant, it looked very nice. Great music and lighting. We placed an order for a small appetizer. The waiter never came back to take our dinner order. After about 20 min with no food or service, we decided to leave. they have the nerve to charge us for the coffee. I was very disappointed and would never recommend this place.

I've been to Bar Freud twice this month. I returned so quickly because the food and ambiance were so great. Both times my dining partners and I shared everything, so I've tried about 3/4 of the menu and absolutely everything is consistently delicious. The ambiance is very conducive for talking which makes sense considering the name of the place. The lighting is very nice - indirect and soft. I look forward to going back!

This place is delightful. Atmosphere is sophisticated and cozy at the same time. Appetizers, cocktails are simply great. It’s a great place for drinks, nibbles and a chat.

The food wasn’t very good and it was really cold in the restaurant. The service was okay, but not helpful or accommodating.
I ordered the heirloom tomato salad and it was just a plate half full of cubed tomatoes. The tomatoes were fresh and good, but not a salad.
The prices are too high for what you get.

Had been in a while and the quality of the food was disappointing. The Spaetzle was very salty and the schnitzel which we had had before was not very good.

I have never written a yelp review for a restaurant, but this restaurant inspired me with their horrible service.
First red flag: had a last minute reservation on a Saturday night for 6 people.
Second red flag: no one in the restaurant, in one of the best neighborhoods in New York on a Saturday night.
We tried to give it a chance but so many things turned me off. We asked the waiter for extra bread, he had to ok it with the chef. We asked if we could order another side salad and the waiter said the kitchen was too busy to make the salad for us. Meanwhile the restaurant was empty.
Don't waste your time. Book in advance for another restaurant. Event McDonalds would suffice.

Asa neighborhood restaurant, I wish it had more dinner selections. What was listed on the online menu differed From what was offered. On the other hand, my husband’s burgers d my bran I o were good soo have mixed feelings as to whether we would return. It seems to be more of a bar than a restaurant..

Overall Freud is an excellent experience. The food is good, the decor is good, the friendly service
is very relaxing. The location is handy for people in the village, East or West, and if going to a movie
for example. I understand the bar scene is happening if later in the evening, or even late day. I went to sit down with friends and have na nice meal, and it was perfect !

It was our first time eating Austrian food and we loved it! The drinks started us off just right! The exotic flavor of the chicken livers, the crispy veal schnitzel, the creamy spatzle, and the heavenly and crafty apple strudel! It was all fabulous, including the service and ambiance. We felt like we were in the Hills of Salzburg!

Very quiet there on a Tuesday evening for an early dinner. Food tastes really good. They put some thought into the menu to avoid staying too close to "classic" dishes. Portions are fine, maybe a bit on the smallish side.
Hope this place gets more business - it deserves it.

I've been to Freud a few times now and wanted to take my dad for the Schnitzel. The food is tasty, although the portions (especially for the sides on the schnitzel) are very small - I don't have a huge appetite but it was small even for me.
The service was inattentive and apathetic. There really was not a very good excuse given that the place was half empty. I had to ask the bartender for the check because the server didn't come and refused to make eye contact. With all the good restaurants in this area, I don't expect to be going back here any time soon.

ONE PROBLEM RUINED IT FOR US

We were really loving this place for its ambiance, unique small menu choices and an inventive wine list. We were guided through the wines (too pricey, but the one recommended was actually one of the cheaper ones. The guy who helped us was very friendly and charming. We ordered a shared starter and main course and wine.

So, the problem? Wine came in a flash. But, the food took FOREVER to come. We waited a half hour for the starter salad. Our waiter brought some deviled eggs over, obviously aware of a problem, and he then said "now we're back on course."

Except we weren't! Another 30 minutes went by and no entree. The friendly gentleman who was accomodating & cool had disappeared; I had to confront someone else who finally brought the entree out. No apology or at least an explanation. What burns most is that those seated after us were served before us. Evening ruined.
