The food was good but there were too many levels of staff that continually roamed around our table. Felt like the minute we ate the last nite they grabbed for the plates. Also order a simple cup of coffee and it needed to be passed through three different levels of staff to get delivered and not in a timely manner. I will not be looking to return to this restaurant.

"Crispy sushi," pizza and steak with bizarrely high mark ups all in one spot? What could go wrong!

I thought the food was delicious. From the fresh guac & chips to the warm apple crisp for desert. I had the chicken Milanese. Wasn’t greasy and the mixed greens on top were crisp & fresh. NY strip was grilled to perfection and got a delicious side of sautéed spinach. T Bar salad was also a delight!

T-Bar is the neighborhood "go to" for dinner as a couple or dinner with friends. The vibe is New York style, relaxed and friendly. The food is delicious, well portioned and well prepared. Steaks are of high quality, burgers are full of flavor, the pizza has a crackling crust, chicken Milanese is crisp, light and complemented with a delicious salad. The price point, like the service is approachable, the wine list friendly, the drinks are generous. This is a solid destination, a place to become a "regular"

This restaurant is a wonderful place to have on the upper east side.
It is always delicious, simple and promptly served.
Tony is always there, and therefore his staff is efficient and friendly.

It was restaurant week. We ordered a Pinot noir listed on the menu. They charged $7.00 more per bottle because we did not order off the restaurant week menu. I found this offensive. I ordered branzino. None left. I then ordered salmon. It was not very moist. Service was attentive. Guacamole was very good. Wine was delicious. Main courses were ordinary.

It was a nice venue to celebrate my daughter in laws birthday. In addition to 4 adults, we had an 8 year old and a 5 year old with us. T Bar was a good choice to handle both generations well. It was kid friendly and yet could accomodate the more sophisticated palate.

This is my third time at T-Bar in the past few weeks, although I've dined there so many times. I love the restaurant's ambiance and their delicious food. The wines are great as well as the desserts.
But the service has been poor every time. Many friends have had the same experience, sadly. If it weren't for the glorious food, I probably wouldn't return.
