the service, food, wine and ambience are perfect, and the cost was lower than expected. Barolo by the glass, a salad of roasted beets, another of slivered finnochio with parmesan. Gnoccetti like clouds. http://barbettarestaurant.com/home.html

We recently saw a broadway show and ate at Barbettas prior to the show. We had reservations and were sat at a cozy table immediately. Eduardo, our server, recognized us as regulars even though it has been a few months since we dined there. He told us they had just reopened after a kitchen fire in late November. Our food... More

I wanted to dine at Barbetta during our last trip to NYC because I remembered the elegant décor and wonderful meal we had experienced. I will not insist on dining there again. We were given a pre-fixed menu instead of the full menu. I understand on Saturday night the need to limit the impact on a kitchen, especially with the... More

Try the various dishes that you do not typically see on other menus at Barbetta. I loved the rabbit which was flavorful, tender and perfectly prepared. We also enjoyed the beets, appetizers and dessert.

We stayed in this elegant and historic Italian restaurant on March 2009, on the occasion of our second visit to New York. We had almost decided at the very last moment, but luck was on our side, making us, however, find a great table, in the sumptuous Main Dining Room. I was a bit uncomfortable, because I never like to... More

We've been to Barbetta before, and enjoyed having dinner there, both inside the elegant old-world dining room, as well as in the lovely garden. We decided to go back for a special occasion (a Valentine's Week dinner) and are very glad we did. The wait staff very patiently and thoroughly explained the evening's special dishes, (which we thoroughly enjoyed) and... More

We made Thanksgiving dinner reservations to Barbetta's based on the reviews we saw. I was looking forward to a wonderful Thanksgiving meal my first visit to NYC! But, the $200+ meal for my husband and I did not meet our expectations. The decor is absolutely beautiful...very lovely. Unfortunately, that was the only thing great about our dinner. The wait staff... More

Worst Thanksgiving meal ever! We also visited Barbetta for their special Thanksgiving dinner. It was also our 31st Anniversary. We made them aware of this special occasion when we made reservations asking for a nice romantic table. We were seated next to the kitchen! All we saw and heard was that door going back and forth the entire time we... More
