5 stars for the phenomenal food, -2 stars for the dismal service. Everyone was very friendly, however our waiter was scarcely found and we had to ask for very basic things that were taking extended amounts of time, i.e. water, the check, etc. Had an issue with dirty glassware. 1pm reservation, was not seated until 1:20, despite larger groups with later reservations being seated first. If the service and timeliness could be improved, this place would be five stars all around.

Good brunch spot. A lot of different options on the menu. Very large space that can accommodate large groups, private parties, and small tables.

Food was fantastic. From the bar snacks to the chicken entree. The maitre d staff was awful. Rude and un-accommodating. The waiter was clearly over burdened so the drinks were slow and the food delivery was slow.

This restaurant is lovely, roomy and decor is really special. The food was very good - would advise that portions are a bit small. Service was excellent - friendly and attentive.

The hostess was super helpful with accommodating my 2 young children in the main dining room, adding to our party, and moving up our reservation per my request for a Saturday brunch. Service is fantastic and the food is great as well.

The service was ok- I return to blackbarn for the chill lounge vibe from the front couches.
A bit overpriced for what it is

Just another super terrific Sunday brunch
We had omelette and eggs Benedict which were yummy but that’s just the beginning
The hostesses are personable and caring, visiting the table to be sure all is good And our server was attentive and friendly
Best of all the Jazz/blues. And make the brunch special
Where else can you go with such a great combo
And the place is full of young families
Kids are all over the place but the layout makes It easy for the parents and nice fir us without kids
Love this place

I absolutely loved Blackbarn Restaurant. The service was top notch and the food was high quality and delicious. It was my birthday and the staff went out of their way to make it special. I will definitely be recommending to family and friends and plan to be back soon.

Went to eat here the other night with my boyfriend. Great location and great looking restaurant. We were so excited to have dinner here since my boyfriend had been 3 years prior and raved about it. I think the chef/ownership must have changed since, the food was good but a bit overpriced for the quality. Happy we went on a Sunday when it was half off all wines!

Service was horrible. After taking our order, our waitress ignored us for the rest of the night. By the time our main dish arrived, our sparkling wine was flat. We had to ask three people for service before finally asking fir the manager. In the meantime, the numerous staff was busy setting up tables for the following day, completely ignoring us. The manager did discount our bill but our Saturday night was ruined and the staff spoiled what should have been a special meal and left us begging for the check so we could leave.

This restaurant has great aesthetics and ambiance, the service was very friendly and prompt. The food was very hit or miss, some aspects of my entree were outstanding, such as the Mac and cheese but the quality of the steak was sub par. I would be willing to give Blackbarn a second try.

Highlights

Tuna Tartare and mac and cheese croquettes were stellar.
Good wine selection.

However I have had better dining experiences at other restaurants with equivalent menus in NYC.
Service was rather slow as we neared the end of our meal. We had to catch a train so no dessert to celebrate a birthday.
Steak was too fatty for a NY strip and the prawn was overcooked.
Wings were ok.

It was an amazing restaurant all around. We were taken past a bar room and that had some small tables as well through a hallway into a huge room with amazing lighting and the most sophisticated feel. It had very romantic lighting and the mood was great. The food was absolutely spectacular, I ordered the ribs and my boyfriend ordered the chick, and appetizers as well as the bread bowl were amazing. Our waitress was extremely nice and conversational and helped a lot with all the questions we had. Overall an amazing experience and I would definetely visit again. We even told them it was our anniversary and they brought us cute little donuts as a gift as well as a goat cheese tart during our appetizers. LOVE LOVE LOVE

I’ve visited Blackburn a number of times for dinner over the years – glad that it has remained largely consistent. One of my favorites on the menu is the tuna entre. Simply delicious.

Consistently great food and service. I was glad to introduce 3 friends to Blackbarn for a get together. They were very impressed with the food, it’s preparation and generous portions , we despise precious food and Blackbarn is not that restaurant. The vibe is authentic, friendly and comfortable.

Food was good but had to wait 45 minutes past our reservation to be seated at our table. Management comped a round of drinks but was not apologetic or friendly. Overheard waitstaff talking about our party repeatedly asking if our table was ready. Probably won’t be back

The baby octopus was extremely tender. The accompanying bland chickpea puree was saved by the gremolata, and the refreshing fennel salad.
The whole roasted fennel is deceiving - the fennel sits alone on the left side while the equal sized "salad" comprised of a red beets at the base with mesclun, blood orange sections,goat cheese, and tuille on top - sits on the right side. I am not sure they paired well - especially a bite of fennel and beet. And, the fennel was begging for a dusting of ras el hanout during the roasting process.
The chocolate mousse was right up their with Buvette with its richness and density. I am not sure I needed the brownie chunks, but I ate them anyway. I felt guilty eating the whole thing, but I had no one with whom to share!
