Barbetta's is a must-go in NYC. The restaurant is located in the heart of restaurant row on 46th in a wonderful brownstone that exudes old world NYC. The food is great, wine list extensive, and the service is top notch. Be sure to come early and sit in the front parlor and enjoy.

Saturday night we arrived at Barbetta to celebrate my father's 83rd birthday. Our coats were taken graciously and we were then escorted to a lovely room that had only three tables. It was quiet. You would never know the other tables were occupied or those of the adjacent room for that matter. The wait staff was very aware of the... More

6 of us dined at Barbetta on a Saturday night around 6 pm. When we booked we were not aware we could not order off the ala carte menu; the only option was ordering off the pre fixe pre-theater menu, although you could order ala carte off of that. The selection was severely limited compared to the extensive menu we... More

Had the pre-theatre dinner, which included dessert. The dining room was totally full, with everyone expecting to be out the door well before 8 PM. The service was personal and impeccable and we never had the feeling of being in a crowded restaurant. The staff was friendly and attentive. After 110 years, they've got this down to a science, and... More

Excellent. The food was magnificent. The restaurant itself was gorgeous. We felt like we were back in Italy and in a small palace. We can not say enough about the service. This is a winner.

The atmosphere is a little chi chi, or baroque, as if it were a fancy restaurant in the nineteenth century. The wine list is good. The food could be better, but it is still very good.

We had heard good things about this restaurant and we agree, as long as we focus on the food. The staff was friendly, but seemed to be overworked. Sometimes it was hard to obtain the attention of our server as quickly as we would like.

It was 5:00 and we had play tickets for a 7:00 show. I should have been skeptical when they said they could seat us immediately when so many other restaurants on the same street were full. They would not allow me to keep my jacket even though it was cool inside the restaurant. I had to check it. We were... 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.
