    Bar area renovation was underwhelming. Food is good but not great. Was anticipating gin drinks like they make in Portugal, the best there. Food was ok but not great. Service was good.

    The Manager and server were very nice but the experience was spoiled by a member of staff who was especially and pointlessly abrasive. $109 for two, for very badly cooked scrambled eggs (literally like I had in the army) and ordinary ingredients. The range of choice was fine but the quality and presentation was far from what one would pay for a great steak.

    The service started good and then the waiters stopped coming to our table to clear our plates and asked us if we needed anything. Also, they did not disclose that a 15% service charge was added to the bill.

    A lovely setting, but outrageously expensive, even for hotel breakfasts in NYC. $104.06 dollars for 2 people, including the 15% tip that was added automatically. I appreciate that it's a hotel, and I know it's standard practice for hotels to add a tip on automatically for breakfast, but the cost of the buffet itself is ridiculous. You could set two prices, one for full buffet and one for a more limited offer, and get more return business.

    We were seated in a bar area when there was space in the dining room. Ordinarily, this would be fine but when you are having a Christmas brunch it would be expected that you would not put people at one of the few cocktail tables. The service was terrible. We would have to track down our server for something as simple as a refill of coffee (which were able to get once and the other time I had to get it myself) and water (same thing). Clearly, he was not interested in working that day. The food was a buffet which would be fine but it was all cold. We ordered omelets but they came out cold as well and were liquified in the middle because they had not been cooked the required time. I usually only provide reviews of excellence in dining and service but feel the need to report this to all. Terrible experience and quite disappointing for a Christmas Brunch from what appeared to be a nice place.

    Just a bit too lazy to venture outdoors, we stayed in the hotel and checked out the Gin Parlour for a night time snack. Decent atmosphere, semi quiet, some children running around, but nothing that bothered us. It is a hotel lobby after all. For drinks, we had a margarita and a bees knees. High marks for the bartender. I tried the kim chi fried chicken sandwich. Crunchy and tasty but the bun was on the dry side. The fries were fresh and crunchy - I liked them. The smoked chicken salad was fresh, well made, and big enough. My wife couldn't finish it. The waitress was friendly and efficient. She was all over the place and could have used some help. This was the second time I stayed at the Barclay and the second time I tried the Gin Parlour. I'll eat there again. It's reliable and convenient if you don't feel like leaving the hotel for a bite.

    Its a very lively place. I was meeting a business contact there - too noisy to be able to talk without screaming at one another. If it was a business meet up, it would have been really a cool place to be on a Wednesday evening (live music). Drinks were good but a little annoyed that when ordered one of their gin drinks (which was excellent), i also as for just a club soda with it. Apparently, the bartender decided i needed a bottle of club soda at $8 - if you're going to bring that out, i think it warrants a suggestion. I simply wanted a non-alcoholic drink with my alcoholic drink. I would absolutely go again however as this was a ver lively place - just nit great for any sort of conversation while the band is playing.

    There was no host to greet us. We waited over 10 minutes for someone to sit us. A maintenance worker started painting the wall right behind us half way through our meal. The manager came over to ask if we wanted to be moved and gave us attitude because we asked if the painter could stop painting literally right behind us and wait until after we left. Needless to say, the smell of paint ruined the meal. This was a business lunch that did not go well.

    Out of the Midtown lunch crowd hustle and bustle, big comfy chairs and no rushed service. You can hear your table conversation and not worry about someone eavesdropping. The service was good; the Cobb salad was fresh and crisp. The quiet ambiance was the big win.

    A group of us went for Restaurant Week and glad we did. While the service was pretty good, the food was substandard. The poke lacked flavoring but was an ample size. The steak did not melt in your mouth and also lacked flavoring while the gnocchi served with it look like 2 burnt ends off a bbq. Yes that was 2 pieces of gnocchi served with the steak. I think the place is meant more for like cocktails or a quick bite to rest from walking around near Grand Central.

    had breakfast Monday and Wednesday this week Monday service poor Wednesday service great-Bangladesh waiter - winner !! buffet is a down tick as opposed to ordering from menu. bagels were too small fruit was past expiration and $40/ person for this is not appropriate. plus including 15% tip is bad. I always leave 20%---but since you decided you had tp charge 15%....your waiter lost out....and second thought 15% for a buffet is sad too!! I direct many business meets here--- I run an executive search firm, but I cant use your restaurant any more because of above.

    Hotel, incredible. Bar, incredible. Service, terrible. Because everything else at the hotel was amazing, my mom and I were in shock over this. Easter/birthday brunch: Dishes were left to pile up. Never asked how food was or if we needed anything additional, or even water refills. Easter brunch at $65 per person, I would have hoped for a little bit better service from friendlier staff. Particularly having staff speak speak ill of another employee within earshot. Maybe it’s because everyone else at the hotel went so far above and beyond that this ended up being a bit of a letdown. Food was good though.

    The ambiance and décor of this restaurant is inviting and attractive but disguises some poor service and no distinction between the bar /lounge and what is termed "the restaurant" - they are the same. Our server did not write any of our order down and delivered my wife's Ceasar salad with all of the items she asked NOT to be on the salad. On top of that she whisked away the Shrimp Cocktail before we were finished and added a 15% gratuity to a meal for TWO people. Great for drinks but skip the food.

    Very poor considering it was a 5 star hotel. Sloppy service. I asked for a Caesar salad with strictly no added anchovies. It came with anchovies and when I sent it back they just removed the anchovies but the taste had permeated the entire salad. The food was frankly poor . General feeling of 2 star bistro.

    Please consider this place a convenient hotel lobby bar, and not a destination to enjoy high end cocktails or even learn about different gins. The team seemed to have little knowledge or care about the different bottles on the gin list. When we asked about what gin they had that would best go in to an extra dirty martini the waiter suggested Bombay or Beefeater, and once we ordered they came out with such speed and low temperature it seemed like they poured them out of a tap. Again, this is a standard hotel lobby bar and not a "parlour" or a place to chase gin at.
