“Great food, clouded by poor service....”
Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

Barney's has a great formula, marrying high-end food with a cozy, country inn setting. The duck was a fantastic dish, and their scallops and shrimp in Hoison glaze and soba noodles was excellent. The part you would think would be easier - service - was severely lacking and clouded the overall experience. Our drinks arrived only after following up with various staff several times. The appetizers were late also, but the entrees came less than five minutes after, and needed to be held until we were ready. The waiter disappeared for long periods and in the end, was not available to produce a check. After the check was produced, it took a trip to the bar, and over 10 minutes, to close out. Maybe it was just a bad night for Barney's. Five star food and one star service make for a three star overall rating.

“3 course fixed price menu”
Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

I suggest taking advantage of this menu if you can get there early. Barney's has have great quality food and good sized portions. The wine list is also very deep.

Reviewed April 12, 2012

This is a consistently favorite spot for good food and grt service. The duck is out of this world. T wine is a bit pricy. So be prepared to add a signifant amount to t bill if u order wine w dinner

“Barney's for the Country Inn Experience”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

Barney's is set in an old house right on the road in Locust Valley. Nonetheless, when you enter you can imagine that you are in a country inn. There is a fire in the fireplace, so some diners can be warmed on a winter's night. We had filet mignon, fish, crabcake appetizers, caesar salad, dessert a few drinks. Just be warned that Barney's is expensive ($150 for two, Jan 2012), hence you may save Barney's for special occasions.
