On the one hand, the staff was incredible! The attention did make the evening special and delightful. My husband had the potato-crusted scallops and I had the sauteed crab--both were outstanding. However, the rest of the food was just not of the quality of the price. For example, my crab was served with wild rice--plain, and no veggies, no nothing... More

It is always a treat to return to Barbetta. On our last visit we were taken to a table on the second floor. Though we were initially surprised and disappointed, it was actually just as nice, though different, than the main room downstairs. Not in winter but when the weather is nice, it is also very nice to be seated... More

We had the best time at Barbetta this New Year's Eve. The service, menu, food, drinks, wine, and band were exactly what we were looking for. Barbetta serves classic high end Northern Italian and is an elegant time tested establishment. Don't look for the latest craze. The wine list is superlative, deep in barbarescos and brunellos. It is an expensive... More

This place was not what it was cracked out to be. We were extremely disappointed in absolutely everything. We were over charged on top of it all to add insult to injury. This was our last supper for our trip and we had high expectations from "the best italian restaurant" in NYC. Hmm. Not so much.

I frankly can't understand some reviews by people who "just don't get it". I'm from California and this is the 3rd time I';ve been to this Italian restaurant...my favorite in all of Manhattan.I also collect Pinot Noirs and have bounced around Piedmonte to taste wines. We arrived at 5:00 P.M. in order to make a 7:00 P.M. show and not... More

If you are fed up with all the good traditional American restaurants this is the chance to get the ultimate NY-Italian experience. The oldest Italian restaurant in NY city sticks to the history; both in staff culture and the decoration. We had a very nice evening at in the old Italian atmosphere with great food at reasonable price level. Very... More

What a terrific dinner! The staff was very nice, the food and atmosphere excellent and we even met the lovely Laura Maioglio, owner of Barbetta! And we made it to the theater on time! When we return to this great City we will be back.

Bad food, bad service. Visited New York for the first time the week of November 7th. My husband is frequently there on business and I had an opportunity to go with him this time. I must say, my trip was fabulous and I loved the whole New York experience, except for my visit to Barbetta. The concierge at our hotel... More

I brought a large group to Barbetta last week for dinner and it was ok. I'm not sure as a New Yorker that I expect more but the renovated brownstone and restored decor was very nice but not impressive. The food was good but not at an OMG level. I rated this average but it was a bit better than... More
