Let me start by stating I am a big fan of Chef Flay. I have eaten at the Mesa Grill but had never been to one of his restaurants on the east coast. My wife and I loved our experience which began with a very warm greeting followed by taking us to a table on the balcony which was wonderful.... More

We started at the bar - they have a wide range of spirits, some alternative beers and a good range of wines. We were seated for dinner at the time we had booked and perused the menu. Two of us plumped for the daily special (philly steak with a cheese sauce and caramelized onion - the Saturday plate) and the... More

portions were too small. My wife, daughter and I had dinner there July 7th. My daughter had the filet, I had fried chicken, and my wife the ricotta chili crepes. Everything was wonderful! Never knew collard greens could taste so fantastic and the fried chicken was outstanding! However, for the price Bobby could put a little more food on a... More

After stewing about our bad experience at Bar American I decided to write a review. I did not want to think anymore about our bad experience and wanted to get it off my mind. We went there on a Thursday Night June 19th with 10:30 pm reservations. We had so been looking forward to trying one of Chef Bobby Flay's... More

My wife and I ate at Bar Americain after seeing Rocky on Broadway. It was the perfect way to cap off our evening. It was our first visit to a Bobby Flay restaurant and we will definitely return or try others. The food and drinks were exceptional and lived up to our expectations of Bobby Flay. Everything had the perfect... More

Lovely ambience and excellent, friendly, attentive service. While the food was good, I would not put it on the "must do" list for NY. I had the chicken pot pie, one of my guests had the hamburger, and the other had the scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuit and gravy. Everything was prepared well and served promptly, but all failed to wow.... More

I've been meaning to try Bar Americain for a while now and just now had the chance. It seems it was a long overdue stop as everything was off-the-charts delicious. The seafood "cocktail" appetizers (our table got all three, I got the crab and coconut) were a hit. Mine was full of lump crab meat in coconut milk, with mango... More

I went to this restaurant with my girlfriend because she loves Bobby Flay's shows on television and I was beyond impressed. We arrived early to our reservation and were promptly seated. We started off with a pizza which was cooked perfect. The cheese was light and delicious to start and did not fill you up As my main, I had... More

The restaurant easily seated and serve a group of about 15 of my college buddies for a pre-Dave Chappelle show meal. Everyone loved their food (from Prime Rib steak, to fried chicken to a rather delicious shrimp and grits dish). Wait staff was attentive and did not seem overwhelmed at waiting on a group of such a large size. Good... More
