    Great waiter - Si (spelling?). Fun spot with great views of park. Huge windows. Delicious food with best bread pudding ever for dessert. Tavern tables are a little low for dining, but we managed. Will return. Fun experience!

    Big and airy space but cold in the back dining room. We all had to put our coats back on. Food was good and portions generous. Surprisingly, the half & half served with our coffee was spoiled. They replaced it with regular milk and said they did not have any other. When someone else in our party ordered coffee with half & half, the server did not seem to have problem locating a fresh one...🤔

    BLACKBARN Restaurant - NoMadResponded 7 days agoHi eatwell, Thanks for the feedback! Good note on the temperature, we will definitely make sure to adjust our thermostats, those cathedral ceilings can make it chilly. Happy to hear you loved the food, but sorry to hear about the half and half mix-up. I'm glad a senior server was able to step in and get you a fresh one. Please do join us again sometime soon! Best, Jade

    The service was excellent until the end, when I asked for Splenda for my tea 4x and never received it. The appetizer (tuna tartare) was delicious. The main (Black Cod) was ok. The mushroom toast was delicious; the cod slightly tough and not that tasty. Dessert was delicious - chocolate souffle.

    BLACKBARN Restaurant - NoMadResponded on January 27, 2023Hi AmyG, Thanks for your review. I'm sorry you never received your Splenda for your tea!

    Nice ambience. Restaurant was a bit loud. Too many different servers. Bar service was slow. Food was good, but didn’t have a lunch menu, only brunch, even at 1:30 on a Saturday. Even though I asked, as our section of the restaurant cleared out, we were “tossed out”, and asked to move to the bar area if we wanted to continue to hang out, so we just left.

    BLACKBARN Restaurant - NoMadResponded on January 27, 2023Hi Decodence, Thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear you enjoyed the ambience and sorry to hear it was loud for your liking. The high ceilings and live music during brunch can make the space quite buzzy. We're upset to hear you felt "tossed out" and will be looking into this. We hope we can make it up to you at a future visit. Best, Jade

    The ambiance and service was spectacular. I’m not a huge brunch fan, so from the brunch menu the food was average. I’ll definitely be back but to try the dinner menu

    BLACKBARN Restaurant - NoMadResponded on January 27, 2023Hi Anonymous, Thanks for the feedback on your brunch. We love to hear you enjoyed your service. Sorry your brunch food was not your favorite but we truly do hope you come in for dinner.

    Really enjoyed my experience here. Ambiance was great, decor not overbearing or cheesy (news flash, there are no reclaimed barns in midtown manhattan) and most importantly the food was excellent. Went for brunch and really enjoyed the Johnny Cakes with Ricotta and Honeycomb, topped with berries. The Huevos Chilaquiles was outstanding and better than any I've had at several other well regarded brunch spots. Definitely plan to go back again in the near future.

    Missteps in service, wrong wines poured, allergies not taken into consideration when assured they would, vegetarian options sounded delicious but dessert-sweet butternut ravioli w/salty Swiss chard was not a crowd pleaser, obviously. Somewhat of a disappointment.

    They made us eat in the front, in the bar area. I am convinced they are too lazy to open the proper dining room area with real tables. Instead, they make you sit at high tops, very small round tables, or tables (that are not level) with couches as seats. This is a real restaurant and they are too lazy to let their customers sit are real tables. Shameful.

    We've been here several times and love the vibe. Today was AWFUL. Service was horrible. I don't know if they were understaffed or if it was that our server was new/bad or something else but the service was absolutely terrible. She kept telling us we couldn't make easy modifications to the food and didn't come back to confirm that the kitchen was able to accomodate us when she said she would. When we asked she was a bit argumentative saying" I told you they could do it" when in fact she had never even returned to the table since taking the order 20 minutes earlier. Our drinks (coffee, iced tea, mimosa) took over 15 minutes to get delivered and only because we flagged down a busser. The Johnny cakes were cold--the omelettes were not particularly hot when they came out either---all in all the place was WAY off their game and I am in no hurry to go back anytime soon based on this last experience.

    This was my third time at Black Barn and my sister's first time. She loved it from the start, remarking on the vibe and ambiance. We were seated in the front area, and it was lovely. Airy and chill. Everything was perfect for our sister lunch. We each had a turkey BLT, and shared the burrata to start. My sister enjoyed two glasses of wine, which she loved. In all, a wonderful time was hard at Black Barn.

    Very disappointing. We got there early to have a drink at the bar. Bartender ignored us until we spoke up. BTW - the place was fairly empty. Drinks was below average. When being seated we asked the hostess to get the contact info for the events team as we were interested in a possible takeover of the place in May. She said she would bring over the info while we ate. Never saw her again. Waiter was very slow and uninterested. The only person on the ball was the busgirl. Food was average and everything was slow and without care. We did not stay for dessert as we were not enjoying it. The restaurant was barely 33% occupied so there was no reason to be disinterested in serving us.

    BLACKBARN Restaurant - NoMadResponded on January 7, 2023Hello Big Rose- I wanted to reach out and express my disappointment as well that We were not able to deliver the experience that you came here for. At Blackbarn, We make sure that all our guests leave the establishment happy and it's unacceptable that you weren't one of them. Would you be kind and call me directly at my cell 602.373.7292 to discuss further. Much Appreciated! kindest Regards, Nino J General Manager

    The service was AMAZING. The recommendation from the waiter is so great, also we got to try a new year special wine on the house. The food is absolutely delicious, and the price is very reasonable. The environment is so sick and on new year eve I could still be able to book a last minute table which was insane. Literally one of the most underrated restaurants in the city. We had 3 to start, 3 main dishes, 1 dessert, and 1 bottle of sparking wine. We spent a good quality of time there for a night. Definitely would come back later and highly recommended!!!

    The tavern area was poorly laid out. We are with family and kids. Chairs were uncomfortable, table was too low in comparison, not really the setting for a meal. They should have offered us sit somewhere else.

    Amazing place, it's rustic but modern at the same time. It has multiple rooms with different atmospheres, looks like a great place to hold different venues and events for small to large groups as well. Service was great, the food was plenty and flavorful and just the right size. Wish the bone marrow fish had 2 pieces. First time there and we loved it, had amazing time.

    Disappointing. Food was very sub par, the margarita pizza mostly inedible and not worth the price. Service was also bad, every time we needed water or place an order we had to go find somebody. Atmosphere was nice and cozy, the live music was great, but we will not be coming back. Terrible value.
