I've lived in the East 90s for three years now and have given barking dog several times to redeem itself as a restaurant. But, without fail, there was a problem every time I ate there; whether it was an overcooked yet somehow cold cheeseburger or a side of bleu cheese dressing that was clumped up powder and water (yes; a mix that wasn't mixed). The last straw was when we were seated without menus and nobody came by our table. After fifteen minutes we were ablt to get the waitress' attention and asked her for menus. She told us we weren't in her section but that she'd tell our server to bring them. Then, she proceeded to bring menus to the people sitting right next to us! We up and left and haven't been back since. The food is mediocre at best and the service, frankly, is terrible Seriously, if you're looking for a good meal in a nice, laid-back environment in the East 90s, Barking Dog should only be a last resort. Go to Fetch instead...that place is awesome!

Barking Dog at the corner of 94th street and 3rd ave is a very unique restaurant. I always have a great time there. That place is really cozy, food is delicious, portions are huge and prices are very reasonable for the amount and quality of food. You must try their dinner blue plate specials, fish is very fresh and lamb chops are tender and delicious. Their service is great also, the waitstaff is very friendly. Dog lovers, you should sit outside at the sidewalk cafe...it's beautiful. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

I came to have brunch at Barking Dog as it was the first place that I saw open on Thanksgiving Day. Was dining by myself so opted to take a seat by the bar counter. Wanted something just to fill up and get me going for the day so had the Farm Land - scrambled eggs with 'chicken hash'. The meal came quick and the plate was filled to the brim. Aside from the eggs, and hash, the dish came with a small ramekin of fruits, and a serving of hash browns. The order did fill me up, but the taste was nothing great... I was looking forward to the chicken hash resembling some sorta corned beef hash - stringy, flaky with tiny cubes of potatoes. What arrived was the creamy filling for chicken pot pie.... so this combined with the herbed scrambled eggs (the herbs of which were all compressed on one side of the eggs) - not exactly the best combination. I'm definitely think twice whether I'll come back... even with the very cheerful and responsive bar hostess, and even if this was the only place open around the neighborhood.

Quality food Delivered very large portions and tasted "clean"- if you know what I mean!

Have been there for brunch multiple times. the food is reasonably priced for the city, but its well worth the money. I always get the Country Sausage, Apples and State Cheddar omelette and my friends normally get the pancakes and both ase always delicious!!! The only downside is there can be a bit of a wait as well as lots of kids running around, so it can get a little noisy. But the food is wonderful, tasty and unique.

Do not be folled by its cute exterior, this place stinks. Went for dinner last night and absolutly everything was sub-par. This might be the only place in NYC that does not serve french fries with your burger. Pricey add-ons for everything on the menu. Some of the entrees actually come with no side whatsoever. Oh and it's CASH ONLY, and they hide that nice little face on the very last page in the smallest font of the entire menu and make you go to their ATM with a very large fee.

I've been eating at the BD for over 10 years but it's not what it used to be. The quality of the food isn't the same and the proportions are shrinking, the service is shoddy, and I've repeatedly received the wrong order. Time to start going elsewhere!
