I honestly wasn't impressed with the fried chicken and waffles, but the service was very attentive, and the live music was a very nice touch!

Wonderful brunches! Went back FOUR (4) times. Very cool live music totally in tune with the vibe & style of the restaurant. NOT LOUD. Gentle, cool & clever match with the theme. Saturday and Sunday bands fit the space magically. The menu is cool as hell! Chicken n waffles, shrimp & grits, sweet potato pancake on to standard fares done up right. A truly thoughtful palate put this together.
Definitely give this one a try.

The food was outstanding! the wine and drinks were great. The four of us LOVED the black barn.
Would go again in a New York minute. Our waitress was wonderful, even though she pushed a little too much food on us, but I'm sure that's her job !

The bill was steep but worth every penny of it.

From the minute we walked in we fell comfortable and welcomed. Had time for a drink at the bar and seated before our reservation. Our service did a nice job again made us feel comfortable. The food was well persented and was very flavorful and well presented. The food was served hot and well seasoned.

My family and I have loved Black Barn ever since it opened in the area. It’s our go to place to eat and relax ... John and his wonderful team are always so welcoming that it feels like family. The butternut squash ravioli is our daughters favourite!

I originally had a 1246 reservation for a party of five. Four out of five people were there on time. I was told that was fine as long as we could order upon sitting which was not a problem. Time went by and it wasn’t until we asked to speak to the manager that we were told that if your party is not there within 15 Mom you lose your spot for a table. This was never told to ya not once. However upon sitting we had amazing waitstaff who went above and beyond and we received many complementary items. Overall job well saved

BB has a great menu but typical to most large restaurants, the food and service don't deliver for the prices that they charge. Our food came late and was luke warm and/or overcooked. Good atmosphere and cocktails but the food has a ways to go.

Great space, although incredibly large, it was sectioned to provide intimacy. Décor is very in right now. Menu is great, with lots of options, particularly strong on vegetable options.

The service was very slow for the most part. Was hard to get water. They required that we put our full order in at the same time but didn't bring our food at the same time and forgot one of the main dishes. The fries were cold so they sent a new batch and took some of the dishes off the bill without us having to ask. Overall its a good option in the neighborhood but there is always something a bit off.

Brunch didn’t live up to expectations . I’ve been there for dinner a couple times and the food and service were excellent. This time, everything was just off. We got the appetizer 2 minutes before entrees arrived. We got our cocktails after our entrees arrived. Bread service was also sent to us after entrees arrived. The shrimp and grits entree was just meh, the shrimp was over cooked and the grits were not seasoned at all. Oh, and we waited 30 minutes for someone to clear the table and give us the check. Very disappointing because I really did like this place.

Have eaten at Black Barn a number of times and it's always very good. Food is top notch, service is helpful without being pushy. One doesn't get the sense that the restaurant is playing a volume game, trying to get you in and out as fast as possible. Menu is expansive. To me, it's the best bet in this part of Manhattan.

I've been coming to Black Barn for two years or so and I love the space, and their menu is always updated. They also just got a new restaurant manager who's awesome.
It's my go to for drinks with friends, networking, and dinner.

They have TWO happy hours! One for the early birds and one for the late birds! 9pm-close they offer 1/2 off burgers and $1 oysters!! The prices are stiff but well worth it. The food is AMAZING! Don't leave without trying the ribs.
