    Not worth the $

    Decided to try this place again after the chef changed, and still a dissapointment. Appetizers were the octopus which came on a yogurt sauce (no idea why) and was way too salty and the chopped salad (again a huge amount of yogurt plopped on top). Main courses were the Branzino which was ok and the lamb chops which were fair at best. Desserts were the rice pudding and the sorbet and both were good. Make sure to check your bill as they calculated wrong. Service was good, but I will not return here for more than a drink at the bar.

    Do not go...

    We recently ate at Barbounia; we were a party of 10. While waiting a long time for our meal, we asked for extra bread. When our bill came they charged us for the extra bread. I have never been charged for ANY bread and this place did so. Stay away; the food is simply not that great for the extra charge.

    go for a drink, have dinner elsewhere

    Dishes are TOO salty. Portions are small. Too sceney to be a genuinely good restuarant. However, fun place, really nice bar area, vlean restaurant. Food just not so good.

    Expensive but consistently good :)

    I have been here a couple times and it’s always a great meal. The cocktails are awesome and the vibe of the place is great when it’s not super packed. We try to get there when its semi empty and by the time we have our entrees the place is full. The Mediterranean spreads and olives are nice and the lamb there is great. The first time I went I had the lamb chops which were excellent but were too rare for me so I sent them back to be cooked a little longer. The next time I had the lamb shank which was fantastic. They also had this chocolate thing that was insane. Pretty much everything is great. I would avoid weekend dinner rushes as I can see how they would want to turn over tables quickly. I would go when you can have nice leisurely meal.

    Is your microwave not working?

    Went here tonight for a drink at the bar followed by dinner with two friends. Second time here for each of us. Service was incredibly rushed and when three entrees come out of the kitchen in a full restaurant in under 3 minutes (including risotto) you know you're getting warmed up food that was pre-cooked. When the inside of the dish is hot and the outside of the sauce so cold the oil has congealed, you REALLY know it. Oh, and thanks for charging us for the bread after asking us if we'd like some more. Sure - but come on....

    Nice spot near Union Square

    This is a very elegant and yet not exorbitantly priced restaurant a few blocks north of Union Square. Definitely worth in terms of atmosphere. My suggestion is to sit at the luscious bar, have a nice drink and order from the bar menu. But if you have a special occasion then the main dining room is worth it. Don't forget to check the sumptuous restrooms!

    Scam

    My friend and I just went for some wine and appetizers after work. After the bartender kept refilling our glasses without asking us, we were thrilled. We then ordered the hummus and pita plate. Food. super average. She brought us extra bread, we said sure. She wound up charging us for everything, even though we did not ask for it. What a rip! I recommend Gus' Place on Bleeker, much better value.
