I decided to visit Barbetta during Restaurant Week and I should have gone elsewhere. I heard that they had a beautiful garden, overrated. It was concrete backyard with greenery. The decorum is old style italian, big and grand but the welcome we received was less than stellar. We waited over 7 minutes before our server came over. The menu was... More

We were looking for a nice Italian restaurant before the theater and TripAdvisor sent us here. We were very happy we found it! We reserved for 6 pm with our show around the corner at 8. They seated us in the beautiful outdoor garden and presented us with a fixed price Pre-Show menu that got us out in perfect time... More

My limited experience with New York City restaurants is that they are crowded, noisy, and impersonal. My wife and went here before a show to celebrate our anniversary because they have an outdoor courtyard. The courtyard is indeed extremely pleasant, and even though we were seated next to a large party we could easily converse. We were served by a... More

We enjoyed a pre-theater dinner for our anniversary at Barbetta and it was a lovely experience. We were seated outdoors in a pretty garden on a beautiful spring evening. The service was attentive and the food was excellent. It was a memorable evening.

Serving average food from a very limited menu at $58.00 per person with awful service does not really seem to tempt us to return. I asked our waiter for a glass of ice water, never got it. I asked the bus boy for another dinner roll, never got it. My associate wanted another frappe that he had as an appetizer,... More

Wonderful atmosphere, service, and menu. Located less than one block from the theater we were attending later that evening. Eduardo proved himself to be an old pro, suggesting wonderful things. Garden table a must in nice weather. One of NYC's best.

We tried this restaurant during restaurant week. The service was great. Attentive while being unobtrusive. Dinner was well paced and all of the food was served at the proper temperature and nicely presented. While the appetizers and entree choices were good, the desert choices were not what we would have liked. Tasty, but simply not what we would have liked... More

Barbetta was very nice. It was a bit fancy and the food was true italian. They celebrate birthdays well (with piano playing and free creme brulee.)

I've seen the menu during Restaurant Week several years and never managed to come here until recently. For dinner before a show. Service was brisk when we mentioned our curtain time was 8pm (the hostess asked if we were watching a show). We were seated on the ground floor. The restaurant was very opulent--I felt this must be what a... More

The place is beautiful if in some what of a time warp (but a pretty one). The restaurant is large, esp by New York standards and they have an outdoor garden dining room that on our July evening was filling up quickly. We chose to eat inside and they have a lot of tables that are nice for couples. The... More
