I suppose I may have been subjected to service this rude before but I’ve never paid this much for it. Faded glory, mediocre food and abrasive service. New York dining at its worst. A celebratory birthday weekend was supposed to be capped by a memorable...More

Nice atmosphere. Tried braised beef, very average. Bill didn’t make sense; tried to give us someone else’s bar charge!! Had I not looked at detail would have overpaid $50. Inexcusable for high end place. Overall can not recommend unless money is no object and you...More

Came here for a "carb dinner" the night before the NYC Half Marathon in March 2018. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!! First the location and decor. Barbetta claims of fame is to be the oldest Italian restaurant in NYC and in reality it looks like it has...More

Great food and service, but pricey for lunch. Lunch for 2, without alcohol or coffee was over $100. Good location - a few blocks from Broadway theaters.

It looks like a small restaurant from outside. But when we walked in, it was attractive. You will get a feeling of an elegant European decoration. Good food and clean.

First of all you make reservations and are unaware it’s a fixed menu before 830 pm. No options. The food was less than good. Service was touch and go. And packed into a small room like sardines and listening to old people complain about the...More

My family stopped by for a pre-theater dinner on a Saturday night. The food was delicious, and we chose to dine on the three-course pre-theater menu, which included an appetizer, entree, salad and dessert. The service was excellent. The entire staff was friendly and attentive....More

It is a very nice restaurant so I wouldn't go too casual-no jeans/t shirts. It's always nice to show respect for yourselves and the venue by looking good.
