    A keeper

    Had a great meal last night at this restaurant. The tuna tartar was fabulous, the hanger steak was delicious. And the warm chips with blue cheese were amazing. The room is really attractive, but it is noisy. And the service slows down a bit as the room gets full. Nonetheless, I would definitely return.

    Overrated

    They deliver impeccable service, however it is noisy and crowded, with the food overrated for the price. We had that seafood cocktail tasting of three for an appetizer, which was pretty good but heavy on the cilantro. My husband had the venison and it was tasty but full of gristle. I had the mussels with the ancho green chile topping and it was good but a bit cold. However their drinks are fabulous!

    Bobby, Bobby, Bobby

    Okay, I have to admit I've never liked this guy from the jump. I always found him demeaning to the cat on his first show with the overalls. I decided to give him a chance and get steak here and to be honest it was just okay. One of the main reasons I picked this restuarant was because it had a Barolo flight tasting on it's website and when I got there I found it was gone (way to update the website Bobby!) so I wound up paying $110 for a bottle of Oddero which was really good. The food is just okay though and the filet mignon was tough, would not return and will not go to Mesa or Bolo

    Awesome!

    The service was great. The waiter knew everything about the menu in detail. The Red Snapper was incredible. All their desserts were really good. My favorite was the whisky eclair. Will definitely good back.

    Ignore bad reviews: Bobby Delivers.

    One thing about Bobby Flay: He never claims he is going to rock yoiur world, deliver you to gastronomic paradise or re-invent the sandwich. What he does promise is to deliver flavorful food at good value,in a nice comfortable atmosphere with good service. At Bar Americaine he succeeds superbly. A huge room, warmly decorated. Atmosphere is lively, fun, informal. Service friendly, right on the mark. Apps: 3 shellfish tastings excellent. Fresh and generous portions. Each contrasts nicely with the other. Flay is a master of flavors and seasoning. Doesnt overdo heat. Salad of asparagus, greens, chedder also very good. Chips with blue cheese were the star of the show. Not the least bit salty. In fact nothing was the least bit salty and this is quite an achievement. So many chefs, in my opinion, really mishandle salt. Kentucky Hot Brown just turkey over a biscuit, but the parmesan cheese sauce takes it over the top. My fiance had a delicious burger, fat. juicy and loaded with flavor. Dessert was a vanilla creme brule tart which was a good closer. In summary this lunch really was very solid in all aspects. I admit, I was a bit nervous going to BA since the reviews are very inconsistent.You get the feeling Flay sticks with what he knows and does best and doesn't pretend or try to go above or beyond. Therefore he succeeds at delivering the most important factor in eating; taste. You can tell he has a genius for knowing how to mix and match the subtleties of taste to bring out the best. Bravo to Bobby !

    Great food and even better service

    Good food is not hard to find in New York, but truly exceptional service is more difficult to come by. Since Bar Americain is a Bobby Flay restaurant, I expected the meal to be tasty (which it was), but what really stood out was how the staff approached their jobs. Everyone seemed in sync with everyone else and the end result was an attentively executed meal. Early on, my friend dropped her butter knife. We didn't even think that anyone saw it happen, but 1 minute later, a busboy approached her with a new knife wrapped in a napkin. Our waiter (Nick) was friendly and offered some very nice menu suggestions. The overall effect was that we felt like all the restaurant staff wanted us to be there! When was the last time you really felt that way at a restaurant? It does fall on the pricey side but I would recommend it to friends and return myself.

    Awesome Sticky Toffee Pudding sundae

    I have always been a fan of Bobby Flay and now I know why. The grilled pizza appetizer and red snapper main course were delicious and the sticky toffee pudding sundae was divine. I was also impressed with the open kitchen and fresh seafood display.
