Dined during restaurant week and found Barbetta to be exceptional. The Salmon and the baked pears were delicious. I would recommend this place to everyone

I have visited Barbetta, several times over the past few years, and my experience has been exceptional on all occasions. The dining space is breath-taking, the restaurant staff amazing, and the food exquisite. I would recommend it to anyone.

My three friends and I had a wonderful dinner last night. This was the third year that we have dined there during Restaurant Week The atmosphere is so elegant! The maitre d' was most welcoming and friendly. He asked us if our show was starting at 7 or 8. When we told him it was 8, he told us to relax and order whenever we were ready and that we would not be rushed. The wait staff were very efficient- our water glasses and bread plates were refilled without our asking. The menu choices were ample.. The salads was fresh and very tasty. The beet salad was especially good. For the main course, two of us had salmon and the other two had the beef which was so tender and that it cut with a fork. The poached pear dessert was perfect. Our charming maitre d' , Stepehano, even brought two extra desserts, a creme brulee and a pistachio cream for us to enjoy. It was a delightful dinner in a wonderful restaurant. We are looking forward to dining there again and would recommend it highly.

My friends and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Barbetta before going to the theatre. The staff was courteous and paced our dinner so that we had time to dine and make it to the theatre on time. Our meal was superb. I enjoyed my pasta appetizer and beef in red wine entree. A selection of the desserts complemented a memorable dining experience. Barbetta never disappoints us. We will be back.

I was surprised to see the negative reviews below. You don't go to Barbetta for a "hip", modern experience - you go for the oldest family-owned Italian restaurant in NY, the beautiful brownstone, the romantic garden and the traditional Italian menu. A New York experience not to be replicated anywhere else. I've been here many many times and have always loved it - both as a restaurant experience and for private events.

New Year's Eve 2011 - $165 per person tax and gratuities was an utter disappointment. Should have been wary when they did not have a published menu for the Evening 2 days before the event. The best part of the meal turned out to be the passed hors d'oeuvre of smoked salmon, prosciutto and melon. The pasta appetizers following were bland, the beef and swordfish entrees made ordinary by the sauces, the service mediocre. 12:30 am all got their bill and sort of pushed out.

Was just there late nite. While the atmosphere is definitely old world, There are only 2 options prix fixe- $35 or $58. None of the menu items were tempting and we all ended up getting the same thing! Completely uninspired menu. Where is the caprese salad? More pasta options? Cold Chicken w/tuna sauce? We were very disappointed though were left alone and had time to talk..not noisy. Would not return. Overpriced and boring.
