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.

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

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.

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.

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 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 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.

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!
