Had a great time- the 60 second swordfish with avocado was excellent. Would also recommend the expresso martini. Garlic fries also very good. The atmosphere is really cute, good for a date.

I had been looking up many places to go because my best friend was coming in for a well-needed girl's night and I found Barmarche. The cocktail list looked great and their websites showed the cute, cozy atmosphere. I was very satisfied leaving. We had a drink at the bar before we sat and then we split a goat cheese creme brulee, which was very very good. Our fettucine with lamb ragout and our rainbow trout was very good (although a little too much oil, ask to ease up on the oil). Then, even though we had no room for dessert, we decided strawberry shortcake wasn't too filling. It was fabulous! Definitely try it esp if you have only a little bit of room left for dessert. I def recommend this place for a date or for a good start to a girl's night out!

Went to Barmarche for a first date and highly recommend it. We got there pretty early and there was no one there but it picked up a bit later. Still, plenty of privacy. Beautifully lit with lots of candles - you can't help but look good. The drink list is fun and the food was savory and perfect. So delicious. I just don't understand why the chandeliers are boxed in with plexiglass! Check this place out.

BarMarche's well prepared, promptly served food makes it a nice place for brunch or dinner, but it lacks that certain something that makes it the neighborhood go-to. Of special note are the garlic roasted home-fries, and the equally well-flavored french fries. Great mimosas and belinis became only slightly less-so with the departure of their weekend bartender; and the cozy, French-inspired decor, spotted with soft pillows makes it a great place to ease into a hazy Sunday morning.

Go - it's good and worth the wait.

I live in the neighborhood and have gone to Barmarche to eat/drink numerous times. It's a great space - nice deocr, etc - and the bartenders and drinks are fabulous (i'd recommend gin martini or cucumber mojito, not together of course). Also the pizzette are great, whether you get the shrimp or the mushroom/truffle one. However, if you're a big eater or are with big eaters, you or they will not be satisfied. This is a place to get drinks and appetizers, not a home-cooked, filing meal. If you're after the former, you're good. If you're after the latter, don't come to NoLITa, where all the restaurants are like this -- good, but small, portions. cheers!

It's not often these days that a freshman restaurant is as good as Barmarche on Spring and Elizabeth. After eating there last Friday night (a notoriously annoying night to NYC foodies), don't delay your next (or first) trip to Barmarche. The food is solid for it's medium prices. Creative, yet not inaccessible in its bistro environs. The cocktail list is AMAZING. The desserts are simple, but perfectly chosen. The atmosphere is busy, yet not annoying. Most impressive, surprisingly was the service, provided to us by an extremely articulate young man, as excited about the perfection of the steak frites as he was about our conversation centering around marxism and the film industry (I kid you not). After our cocktails, he led us to the perfect California Pinot Noir on the menu. Unlike waiters at so many newcomer restaurants, he seemed completely comfortable talking about the food, the wine list, the cocktail list, (and one amazing amusing review of a recent film release). All this at half the price of a meatpacking disaster. Go, I tell you....GO!
