Barbette sometimes gets overlooked in the ever-changing Twin Cities restaurant scene, and unfairly so. The atmosphere is warm, comfortable, inviting -- a cozy bistro-like ambiance without any pretense or airs. We're big fans of all the small plates ("amusements"); three or four of those, a shared entree and a bottle of wine make for a lovely evening. The sprouts, mussels and charcuterie plate make a nice combo. Among the entrees, the steak frites and short ribs are terrific, though one of us recently found the special lamb chops to be a little disappointing. Barbette may not carry the flash or panache of some of the Cities' newer dining arrivals, but it's the one we keep coming back to for date nights and reconnecting with our friends.

Great food, eclectic atmosphere and super friendly service. There seemed to be a different take on almost every typical lunch item. Everything my party ordered was super tasty. And the friendly staff offered us a free creme brûlée at the end of our meal.. We aren't locals, but Barbette was suggested to us by a local and we loved it.

Had a NY cut steak. Excellent. Cheese plate and scallops for an appetizer, also excellent. Our waiter was very familiar with the menu and was very good at his job. Beer selection was actually quite good and I have a delicious Surly Furious. The price was a tad high, thus the 4 stars.

Good wine, nice cheese, thoroughly enjoyable atmosphere...we love Barbette. My only complaint is I wish I lived within walking distance. Our favorite ambiance in the Twin Cities and a destination worth looking forward to.
