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

We chose to dine at Barbetta before going to see Hedwig with NPH. From the outside, it is terribly understated in relation to the magnificent walk back in time to the early 1900's. The interior decor is very ornate and all of the wait staff are dressed in suits; it was very interesting. OK, the food.... We chose to do... More

Beautiful garden area to dine in. A nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the streets of Manhattan. Food is Northern Italian and well prepared from traditional recipes. The staff was a little stuffy for me but that's just my opinion. Very attentive but pretentious.

Wow, what a gem, went there for dinner before our show. Got a table on the garden, being there you forget you are in NYC. We got the Theatre pre-fix dinner menu, out of this world, the food was to die for, the staff was very attentive and helpful with our selections. and the price was not bad at all... More

The outdoor courtyard dining area is very lovely. Quiet and comfortable. The inside is another story....another era to be exact. This restaurant has alot of history and is rightfully proud of it. The interior is very formal, and harkens to an era when people took dining out seriously. The abundance of formally attired waiters should have indicated attentive service, but... More
