    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.

    Highly Enjoyable

    I called on Saturday afternoon and was able to get a 7:15 dinner reservation. The food was terriffic and tasty, as you expect from Bobby Flay. Unlike other reviews, our service was fine. No service hiccups, attenitve and well paced meal. It may be a little loud but it is quiet compared to Mesa Grill. Prices are a bit high for what is basically a bistro menu. Still an enjoyable dining out experience.

    Great food and atmosphere, but....

    This place is really good, food wise. The decor is awesome and the place is, overall, a real nice area to wine and dine in. The service is lacking a bit. Our server barely spoke English and brought the food way too close to the bread and brought the wine after the food. We sent the first bottle of wine back because it smelled and tasted old. The sommelier got such an attitude! I may not be from France and have a degree in bullsh*ting, but I know wine when I drink it and I'm not paying $60 for something that doesn't taste good! Other than that it's a good place, I'd go back but only if I couldn't get a reservation elsewhere

    Wonderful restaurant dining experience!

    My husband took my parents to eat here last weekend and the whole experience was better than most other really nice restaurants we go to. The food was absolutely fantastic. The service was soooo impressive for NYC. Nobody rushed us and the waitress knew we were out to have a nice night and really was attentive, suggestive, but knew to keep her distance. I guess the whole staff really read people well and wasn't the usual up-your-a** NYC actor/wannaBE/put on a show service. The food was so good I know why Bobby Flay is famous. I must suggest the steak of course but also the mussles in green chili broth. I'm definetely going here regurally and giving up my Pastis addiction.

    Overpriced and Overrated

    Beautifully decorated and you definitely feel the buzz in the room, but we were very disappointed in the food and the service. At almost four star prices, you expect far more than what is offered here. This is, at best, a three-star restaurant. We dined here on Christmas Eve and found the service to be slow and inattentive and the food not memorable. I had the duck which was OK but not great. The side dishes were better, at $9 a piece, and I preferred those over the main course. The wine list is ridiculously overpriced and there is very little available in the under $50 range. All in all, for these prices, one would expect much more.
