OpenTable Diner (New York Area)

Great brunch place by the Flatiron District. Breaking down the review as follows:

Reservations: YES, they take reservations and was accommodating when I needed to change the number in our party. Downside, they won't seat you until your whole party is there. Totally understandable for NYC restaurants during Sunday brunch.

Ambiance: True to their name, the place looks like a barn minus the hay - thank goodness! They play live music on weekends and the place is huge in the back so they can accommodate big parties.

Service: Our server was pretty good. She was attentive and gave good suggestions on food. She could learn the menu more though esp. those that aren't as popular.

Food: They have a pretty good selection for brunch.

The corn muffins are amazing! I got the shrimp and grits for my meal and it was delicious.

Drinks were typical for brunch at $13 and were decent. They did have a champagne brunch offering for $36.

Overall, I would recommend this place and would probably come back. I would like to try them for dinner one of these days.

Met friends for brunch and it was everything we were told it would be...yummy food, casual atmosphere with music towards the front of the restaurant which was easy-listening. Would recommend trying it because I think you'll/we'll go back!

The service at Black Barn was very disappointing. After making a reservation weeks in advance, we arrived at the restaurant and the hostess attempted to seat us in the bar area, which has a different menu than the main dining room. When we asked to be seating in the main area, the hostess seemed "put out" and begrudgingly took us back to the main room, where there were many empty tables. The waitstaff forgot to bring us coffee at the end of the meal and neglected to bring bread (we asked for some after noticing that all the other tables had been given bread).

Food was good with nice portions. Wine was so-so.

Altogether, we spent ~3 hours at Black Barn, and felt the pace of the meal was quite slow. We often had to signal to unattentive waiters to refill our water and asked two separate people for the check after it hadn't shown up.

We won't be coming back to Black Barn.

The food was great but the constant rotating staff continually tried to pull our plates before we could tell them we weren’t done as though they were trying to high speed rush us out to turn over the tables - we found this ride and annoying which greatly subtracted from the experience
