    Good atmosphere, subpar everything else

    The waiters were curt and the food was sub-par. The garden, on the other hand, is a lovely place for a bottle of wine on a nice day.

    Gorgeous garden and excellent food

    We had our company lunch here and everyone was very pleased. It was a beautiful day out so we ate in the garden. It transports you out of NYC for the time you have your meal. The garden is pieceful and very pretty. The food was excellent as well. The appetizers of octopus and also the peppers were very heavy on the olive oil but still tasted great. We all loved our entrees ranging from the frutti de mare to pesto pasta, crushed olives over pasta and the cod and swordfish. All delightfully prepared and a pleasant experience for lunch. I highly recommend this restaurant for the garden, atmosphere, food and decor.

    Very Romantic

    If you want to impress a date, bring them here! Especially in the summer when the garden is open. Beautiful garden! The waitstaff are very professional and friendly. The host was lovely. The only complaint I have is when I was there with my family, the owner yelled at the waitstaff a couple times, which indeed put a damper on our expensive meal. I think it is very unprofessional even if it is her restaurant !! All in all, we had a nice time

    After eight, it's great

    Barbetta offers a restaurant experience that's hard to match, even in New York. The space is elegant in the Old World, old school style, with a well-executed menu to match. But you need to go after the pre-theater rush to appreciate this. The good news is that Barbetta stays open late enough to accommodate post-theater dining. The bad news is that today's theater goers prefer jamming groceries down their gullets at 6:30 (then complaining about the experience). If you can break away from the early-bird mentality, you are in for a treat. The place does have its quirks, including corded electric lamps on the well-appointed tables and a chef who apparently doesn't mind throwing a tantrum within earshot of the dining room. But these things are part of the charm of the place. This is La Dolce Vita writ large, in all its fading glory.

    Disappointing

    Assemblyline atmosphere and claustrophobic condition. Food was mediocre for the price. Wait staff snobby and unattentive. Very rushed service and very impersonal. This restaurant is incredibly overrated. The wire from the lamp on the table dividing my wife and me was especially interesting.

    Better Ambience Than Food....

    My husband and I went here for a late dinner on a Tuesday night. We had been here once before in the winter and sat inside, which was very nice--piano player and candlelight. This time we sat outside. The entire area is just a great space. Beautiful enclosed courtyard with trees and fountain. However, that's really what you should go for--the ambience. The food for the price is not that good. I ordered the risotto with seafood; ok, pretty bland. My husband ordered the salmon, which was pretty good except for the cucumber sauce it was on. I am a huge dessert person, but didn't really find anything that tempted me. Wait staff was effecient, although a tad snobby.

    European elegance

    A Saturday lunch in the garden was a most pleasant experience - even in August. The hydrangeas were in bloom and the fountain sparkled in the sunshine. The other customers seemed to be New Yorkers who knew the place well - two older couples, a grandmother and her two granddaughters, and clusters of friends. Impeccable service (they fixed an error in the bill promptly and apologetically) and absolutely delicious food. We could not resist the dessert tray. Highly recommended.
