Love this place! It is a community place where there are a consistent set of regulars. Service terrific and pleasant. Food excellent and nicely presented. The only problem is that it is a little noisy.
No Bernaise sauce was provided which usually goes with a filet mignon. Otherwise, meat cooked just right,and service excellent.
Great restaurant with excellent food, professional and friendly greeting and wait staff, with fantastic fun ambiance. A true Upper East Side Neighborhood gem!
Festive and fun. A great great place to celebrate with a friend and to toast each other for all the wonderful times together!
Overall very good - had to wait 20 minutes for our table which was not great especially as my 89 year old mother in law had to stand the whole time
Very good steak - I’ll go back
Great service and attention. Very tasty and well prepared food with generous portions.
Always great food and service
Food is fabulous, good salads, salmon, tuna
Delicious as usual! And the staff is lovely!
The food, service, and ambiance are wonderful at T-Bar. The experience is well worth the costs of dining there. One of my favorites in the city.
Very good place. Food was tasty. Place is pricey but I would go back ones again.
The kind of restaurant I always hope to find when I visit another city. Food was excellent, kind and attentive service and a nice ambiance with a neighborhood feel. Highly recommend!
Hostess Madeline was personable and friendly and made our table available after a nicely poured drink at the bar.
Claudio was inviting and supportive as our server and made the evening enjoyable. The porterhouse steaks were exceptionally well seasoned and perfectly cooked. I was slightly disappointed my wedge salad, which was only average and should have been a wow. The sides, fries and sautéed spinach, were simplistically delicious. While the steak felt a bit overpriced, the quality of the meat, the taste and, most importantly, the service made the dinner a success. Will have to try the ribeye next time!
We go to T-Bar on a regular basis. However ,I must say they should change the menu up more.It gets dull. We miss some old stand-bys too! Loved the wedge salad as did all the patrons I have talked to. Why i THAT simply gone? Food getting a bit tired!
The good: The food was quite good. I recommend the tuna tartare and the prime aged rib eye steak. My date enjoyed the zucchini carpaccio.
The bad: Firstly, I thought I was going to a proper steakhouse but the steak selection is limited. The owners should drop the "steak" from the restaurant name. Secondly, as tasty as the food was I feel that it is overpriced.
I have eaten at t bar for many many many years. I have never had anything but a superb meal with excellent service and in an atmosphere that is wonderful and not too noisy for New York
enjoy the local vibe - reliably good food - fun place - good service and clean.
Always consistent. My go to place!! I can eat healthy and yummy food at the same time. Bravo ♥️
Omelette was perfectly prepared w an accompanying salad. Nice and quiet to have conversation with a friend sitting in the balcony area. Lovely lunch!
Excellent ahi tuna tartare, Turkey burger and chopped salad....attentive service highly recommend this restaurant
Solid, tasty food. Service was a bit slow.
Nice dinner, good atmosphere- food was good but pricey.
Love this place! The servers are great, the food's really good and their menu is by no means "steakhouse". It's high tone flavors and lots of choices!
We have always enjoyed coming to this restaurant. T-bar has much to offer for both vegans and meat lovers!
We ordered from their restaurant week menu as well as their regular dinner menu. Ribeye was overall pretty good, but half of it was slightly over cooked. Their mac and cheese was okay. It only has sharp cheddar on the top and the inside is just more of a bechamel taste and no sharpness of the cheddar. Branzino was cooked perfectly, moist, flaky and the skin was crispy. Vegetable that came with it are delicious as well. Their banana millefeuille dessert is caramelized banana with a nice crunch to it, ice cream then a thin crisp cookie like base. Overall not bad.
T-Bar Steak continues to offer a nice atmosphere with a very varied menu. Everything that we have ordered has been delicious.
Food and drink wonderful.
Very enjoyable whenever we go.
We brought our three teenagers and had a great steak dinner the porterhouse was amazing!
We had a wonderful brunch in a very pleasant setting. The menu was diverse and the service was excellent. We look forward to our next visit.
Delicious steak, great desserts. Nice atmosphere. Not too noisey
T- Bar has become a neighborhood fixture. The food is good but nothing special. There is just no competition on the lacking upper east side food scene (or non-scene). It is very strange that they "dropped " the wedge blue cheese salad which was everyones favorite. The menu needs more variety for non-steak palates.I heard several people request things recently taken of the menu (like the wedge salad). It is convenient but lackluster.
I was dying for a great steak and martini for lunch, and I was satisfied and delighted , enjoying exactly that.
Always live up to its rep.
We had the most amazing lunch. We both had the special omelet, and it was amazing. I always have a hard time deciding what to order.
Limited menu. Service wasn’t great. Club sandwich shouldn’t be a roll cut into 4 pieces. Wanted mash potatoes with lunch. Said it couldn’t be done until dinner
As a regular customer I have come to expect that something will go wrong. Today at lunch it was the waiter who took our order. As unfriendly as always his disinterest is insulting. He doesn't greet a customer, doesn't make eye contact. Ordered hot tea. Received iced tea. Ordered "no hearts of palm." Received hearts of palm. Asked for second serving of bread he yanked the basket off the table without replying. Asked what kind of cheese available. He replied "swiss, cheddar, blue." After lunch a bus girl told us they serve parmigiana which would have been ordered had we known. He should not be working with customers.
My family and I ate outside and it was perfect for our kiddos. The service was attentive and friendly. The manager even came over to say hello. My kids loved the pizza. Hubby had the Cavatelli and I had a salad with salmon both were delish. We also had the Banana Parfait which is to die for! Thank you Tbar for an awesome dinner!
I had the special omelette which was amazing. We love all the food there!
