A new restaurant from the people behind Estela, in the Met Breuer museum.
Always an amazing experience at Flora Bar!
Good experience will go again. Excellent service, tried two appetizers two entree and two desert and coffee.
My niece loved her duck, I had the halibut which was alright -the hollandaise sauce was too tart but I cook and am picky. We had the croquettes and white shrimp, the croquettes were excellent the shrimp good as expected. I tried the artichoke desert! It was unusual and interesting; she had the creme brûlée and she said it was excellent
I liked the ambiance for lunch. Vibrant and active. Will go again I’m sure.
The food is very good but service terrible. They brought me the wrong order and I had to wait 20 minutes for new one. While my guest had already finished her lunch I got up twice to speak to a waiter and then the hostess and I finally asked to speak with the manager who was nowhere to be found. they telephoned her and she finally appeared disrupting my table conversation after I specifically asked she not be sent over.There was no excuse for their not promptly putting in my order and getting it to me immediately. it was seared tuna and should only have taken a minute .obviously the waiter had no authority with the chef to expedite this order and there was no management in sight to likewise expedite it. the wait staff is inexperienced and unsophisticated and the manager should have been present at lunchtime to handle any problem.
Not what I was expecting. The food was ok but nothing special, the service, our waitress disappeared for some time. Beautiful place anyhow but I wouldn’t come back.
Flora Bar is one of the best Museum restaurants in NY.
Excelente atención. Muy buena comida. Lo recomiendo!
I originally stopped by the coffee bar for coffee and the zucchini and gruyere scone which was delicious! I also purchased a chocolate chip cookie with gianduja, the sesame pound cake, a sticky bun and the chicken salad sandwich to go. I would pass on the desserts, although the cookie was good, it was not worth $5. What was worth the price was the chicken salad sandwich. I don't typically eat sandwiches, but this one was delicious!
I came back later for lunch and sat at the bar where the staff was very nice. While I was shocked at the $7 sparkling water it was very crisp and very good. What was even better was the lobster and crab dumplings...amazing!
While I enjoyed Flora Bar, I do feel the prices are a little inflated due in part to the fact that it's attached to the museum.
We had a pleasant lunch after visiting the exhibits in the Met Breuer; had been hesitant about going as had an unpleasant experience at an afternoon dessert and coffee visit which was awful because of service. Lunch was good but the service still needs attention: it's not good customer attention when one has to request a coffee refill three times. At these prices, Flora Bar can do better in customer service.
A PERFECT afternoon with a friend !!
We ate family style, and shared 5 plates between the 2 of us. The food, environment, and service was top shelf !!
Thanks for a lovely lunch ;)
The restaurant was full when we arrived but we were seated immediately upon arrival as we had reservations. I ordered a pino noir but did not care for the tasting pour. Rather than make me feel bad, the waitress brought over a delicious alternative. My friend and i were sharing everything and needed an additional option and the waitress recommended the eastern oysters which we ordered along with four other plates (tuna tartare, endive salad, mussels, lobster dumplings) which were all delicious. As it turns out, we never got the oysters that we were looking forward to, but did not even remember until the next day because the wine and service was so good!
Service was very helpful in explaining the preparation of food items. Also, helpful in accommodating my allergy concerns. The staff was friendly and welcoming. I will definitely book reservation again.
Very inventive cuisine, difficult to classify. Everybody in our party enjoyed their meal. We will be back.
excellent creative food , excellent service, amazing setting
Love everything about this place! Will be back soon!
Very trendy, lovely restaurant with contemporary cuisine. Small plates with high prices. Everything quite delicious. Excellent service. Bonus that MetBreuer is upstairs if you want to combine art with arty food.
The food is excellent, the staff very friendly and attentive. It was a fun lunch.
I would prefer the noise level go down, which is my only complaint.
I will be back often.
Very nice restaurant. Perfect for a cocktail, lunch, maybe dessert. L
Expensive lunch but very good. One must order carefully. The croquettes and tuna tartare were outstanding and the bread fabulous.....
First time here. Ordered the recommended dishes like lamb ribs, red shrimp with uni and nori, croquettes, oysters, purple endive salad for starters. For the mains we got the crab and lobster dumpling in yuzu and the halibut. Everything was good. The tastes and flavor were all new to me. Would probably go back on a special occasion.
Wonderful all around, food, ambiance and service. We've eaten at Flora Bar a number of times and always love it!
Good service if you sit at the bar.
Food is interesting but small portions,
I loved the food. Simply food with developed favors. We loved it all. It's been a long time since I had such great food. Bravo!
A perfect evening. We were six and celebrated two birthdays! The whole evening was lovely. Our waiter (sorry, don’t know his name...young, glasses, long hair, sweet smile) was friendly, knowledgeable, and at the table just enough, but not too much. Between the six of us we tried many, many small plates and several dinners and shared everything. Perhaps the favorite was the Clams, but we loved everything. We all said the Creme Brûlée was perhaps the best we’d ever tasted—France included. Two French wines, from the very fine wine list, hit all the right notes. Thanks Flora, we’ll be back!
I was meeting my 2 daughters for lunch. This was a mutually convenient location, and I love the Met Breuer. Up to then, I had only had coffee there. Frankly, I was disappointed. The portions we had were minuscule, and I found it exorbitantly expensive for what it was. We had planned to see one of the exhibits after lunch, but the service was so slow that we didn't have time to stay beyond lunch time.
Food was not good. Strange menus
Food has deteriorated. Lamb ribs were extremely greasy and were sent back. Shrimp cocktail was completely overpriced. Will not go back and would not recommend.
Always feel good going there when we visit Met Breuer. Bread is excellent but should not have to ask for it. Portions are skimpy, especially considering the sky high prices. The Moroccan dish, " s...?", poached eggs covered with a tomato-based sauce, was excellent the first time but way too spicy on Sunday lunch, 3/25/18. Fiery rather than affirmatively spicy.
Jessica waitress was a super ditz. Slow start to getting meal going. Sommelier excellent. Been there and to other Ignacio and Thomas restos and this was maybe an anomaly. Plus we never go out on Saturday night but we thought Flora could handle a Saturday night crowd.
Food isn’t good and service is okay.
The place is great!
The coffe amazing
The scone amazing
Did not love my charshuka
The desert menu limited but the creamery brûlée fantastic
Best restaurant on the UES
A great place for lunch with a friend. They have interesting small plates—the Japanese style crab and lobster dumplings were terrific-and the service was lovely. It’s not cheap, but worth it for a special meal. And then you head upstairs for the art...
Beautiful place. Great staff. Nice blend of adventurous plates and classic favorites.
Loved every minute of this dining experience.
The food was very good but the wait staff was shot with us in attentive and plain rude> I have eaten at lost of Restaurants in NYC and this by far was the worst waitress experience of mine and my fellow diners ever. We all vowed to never go back!
Nice, a bit expensive. Portions are very small. We were there for drinks mostly so we ordered just an appetizer and an entre. Both were very good.
One of our favorite places. Great ambience, innovative small plates to share.
The food was fantastic!
It was not exceptional but pleasant for lunch.
The food was delicious. I split 3 small plates and a hamburger with my friend. It was all delicious. I can say that without doubt it was the best hamburger I have ever eaten. We had the ham which was some very specially fed ham from Spain. It was so delicate and good as was the bread that came with it. I cannot wait to go back.
