    SO overrated

    I have a friend who loooves this place...what is she having that is so amazing?? I certainly didn't find it. My boyfriend and I went and had 2 appetizers and 2 sides. The food is good, not great. It's extremely heavy, and you are not left feeling like it was worth it to feel like a brick. The flavors aren't subtle. I had the lamb chops and they were tough. My boyfriend's duck was pretty good, even though it wasn't mind blowing. The sides were like bar food (such as the cauliflower and goat cheese gratin). It's just too expensive to be this mediocre.

    Impressive

    Is it the most amazing restaurant ever? No. Is it expensive? Yes. However, I had a great meal here at Bar Americain. Had the roasted pork, which was cooked nicely and seasoned perfectly with amazing sauce. Wife enjoyed the seafood and the steak my father in law had was unreal. Also enjoyed the cocktails and the nice beer menu. In addition, our service was top notch. Overall I recommend it.

    Surprised by bad reviews!!-

    I never write reviews, but I feel like I should since I'm honestly shocked by all the negative ones. I live and work nearby and have been to Bar Americain at least 2 dozen times. I have NEVER had a bad experience and always have an amazing meal and great service. It's not cheap so if it's not in your budget, don't go. But the food is top-notch and it has never once disappointed.

    Surprised by the bad reviews

    Been here a few times since I work on 6th and 51st so this is a convenient go to spot w/o being bogged down by the tourists at Rockefellar and never had a bad experience. Service has always been attentive and food really good. The price is fine for the neighborhood, but understand that if you want a lower budget meal, then this isn't the place for you.

    Nothing to write home about

    I am quite disappointed with the meal I had at Bar Americain. Between myself and my three friends, I tried at 2 appetizers, 4 dishes and 3 sides, and none of them impressed me. This is an incredibly expensive meal to just be okay. There are much better restaurants all throughout the city that are far more reasonable. For prices like this, I expect a gastronomic fiesta on my pallet, and I'm sorry I wasted an expensive meal on a big-name place that doesn't deliver. I do have one positive comment, which is that, contrary to what other reviewers are saying, I received fantastic service. I am on crutches and the wait staff were very accommodating of my needs, and generally, throughout the meal, were incredibly prompt and attentive. It's a shame their talents aren't being used on a better product.

    OFF Night? Or Just not worth it?

    Went here for a family bday dinner and had a bad experience. Not only were there fruit fly's and bugs around our table, but the waiter spilled water all over us after hitting over a glass. We were soaked and heading to a Bway show afterwards. All he offered in return was a free App. It was sad because we are both big Bobby Flay fans and were looking forward to this night for a while. The food was average, Service other than our issues was nothing great and the prices weren't worth it. Its Hyped up because of who is the owner and founder of the resturant but based on what we saw, Bobby Flay hasn't cooked there in years nor seen what his resturant had become, sub par...

    Bobby, Marry Me!

    After reading all the bad reviews about the service, I decided to go anyway because I didn't hear any complaints about the food. I was pleasantly surprised on both counts. My friends and I were there on a busy Sat. night, yet the wait staff was extremely attentive. We were early, but seated promptly. I made the reserv. online and would not have agreed to sit upstairs if I had known, you just didn't get the whole feel of the place. The waiter asked if we were in a hurry or had to catch a show. Even with saying no, our food came quickly. After that all I could do was moan softly. I had the shellfish sampler to start. It was excellent and the combination of flavors was to die for. Then when my perfectally cooked steak with cheese and vidallia onions came I was ready for the alter. I also had the baked sweet potato and the spicy corn as sides. It was so good I felt like I had to go to confession afterward. My one friend had the rack of pork and it just melted in your mouth. We did not have room for dessert, and I'm glad because I'm sure I would have died from happiness. All I can say is just go and see for yourself. And Bobby, if you're listening I'd like to challenge you to a through down of Boilo from the coal region of NE Pa. (Shenandoah). I make the best!
