food, though pricey, was wonderful. A recommended wine was superb. We did not use the prix fixe menu and ordered what we really wanted but the prixe fixe is much more affordable for those who choose it. Service is great. It is noisy before curtain time and we'd go 7 ish next time.

The title sums it up. The food is OK not bad but really not above average. We had a pre theater dinner and the staff was very accommodating in getting us out on time. The restaurant is also well situated to the Broadway theater district. They have a prix fixe pre theater dinner but with 2 glasses of wine and... More

Close to the theaters with a large menu selection. Full bar, large Italian wine collection. Waitstaff are engaging and can answer any questions. Very prompt service! Lovely gardens! Would be an excellent choice for a special occasion.

I have to say when I heard we were eating on restaurant row I was not thrilled. My expectations were low. I can happily say I was wrong. From the minute we walked in we were treated like long lost family. We sat in the garden; which is lovely. The maitre'd was an old school, old world Italian charmer going... More

We could not have picked a better day to sit in the garden to enjoy lunch prior to the show. Although hot, the trees and umbrellas made things comfortable. The melon and prosciutto appetizer followed by a half order of risotto was not too much and not too little. We shall return!

Nice choice for a fine pre-theater meal. The food comes out like clockwork, our meals were tasty, service was sturdy and we got to the show on time. Nice ambiance, but the building is showing its wear.

This was old school high-end Italian hospitality. Our waiter was so wonderful, I'm sure he had been with Barbetta's for many many years, and helped us order plates that were wonderful, and spectacular wine. He basically ordered for us, and did't get a thing wrong!

We went here to celebrate my and my mothers birthday after reading great reviews here and other sites. I looked forward to taste the famous rabitt, but unfortunately they were out of this dishwasher. I ended up with a great steak. Really delicious food. We where seated in a delicious garden in the back yard. I could really recomend this... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
