    My husband and I have been here several times and the food is always really good. We've tried the smoked bacon pizza, the grits with shrimp, grilled fish, the sirloin steaks, and of course the fries, and it has all been fantastic. The cocktails are mouthwateringly delicious! The only thing I didn't like last time we were there was the desserts - my husband loved his pumpkin cheesecake but I wasn't blown away. The rest of the meal was so good we didn't mind. Although the hosts/hostesses at the front seem aloof at first, the servers have all been friendly without being phony, paced our meal just right whether we are going to the theater or just enjoying a more leisurely meal, and have been helpful with the wine list. It's not an intimate setting, but rather a fun, warm, lively, energetic one. The quality has been consistent and we would definitely recommend it.

    Salty sauce, poor layout

    11/29/11..7p.m. seating. Trying to have a relaxing drink at the bar was a joke. Not enough space and tables creep right up to the bar so you're standing at the bar with your behind very close to some poor patron's dinner and waiters bumping into you constantly. We were seated at a nice table, however, and the wait staff were friendly. The food, unfortunately was not. My husband's pork lacked flavor and character while my rabbit in mustard sauce was overpowered by the sauce and very salty, obscuring any other ingredients. Good news was that they removed my entree from the bill. Would not go again....even if Bobby were there.

    The main course and desert was amazing. Inexpensive when compared to Del Posto.

    The food wasn't that bad, but for the money it was on 12 Nov 2011. An olive pit in the Chopped Salad is unworthy of any chef. Tooth repair later this week. And one other in our party of four ventured for the raw oysters and paid the price six hours later. Maybe we were just unlucky; but all in all a shameful performance.

    The bad reviews I'm reading make me tell my experience with bar americain. I had to BEG my way in the first time and was so glad they made room for us! I'm in NYC at least twice a year on business and never skip this, tho my rule is to always try new places with only one old fave. THIS is always my old fave! Love the spicy southwest influence, his onion soup is best I've ever eaten, and I've never had a disappointing meal there.

    Totally over rated

    Was not impressed. The spinach was under cooked and too oily. The food was Ok. Nothing spectacular. Sorry Bobby!! But this joint is a miss.

    Poorest service on the planet

    I was their with a British film producer and he wanted a good burger. The burgers were nothing to write home about but the service was subpar. Our servers were rude, it took 25 minutes for our order to be taken. When I tried to order coleslaw, I was told that it was portioned for tacos! I offered to order it as a side and pay extra and this time the server acted like I had asked for something out of this world. Avoid this place, so many better places in New York.
