charred jalapeno, olive oil, and crushed tomatoes
Great food and service and fun atmosphere! Whipped feta and labneh dips are amazing, as are the crispy artichokes and falafel. The only issues were that if you’re seated close to the kitchen the heat from the wood burning oven can get uncomfortable. The tables are also very close together, so it’s kind of difficult to get around.
One of the best meals I have had in a very long time. The lamb wear amazing- don't miss it!
Our experience there was fabulous! It was the first time the 6 six of us dined there by a recommendation from my daughter who highly recommended Barbounia! Would come again and will spread the word!!!
Too loud -
beautiful place with lovely food! Great service too
This is one of my favorite NYC restaurants! It never disappoints.
Excellent except one item we ordered never came (but we didn't get charged for it) and the dessert was so sweet I couldn't eat it.
Such great food and great space
Great ambiance, kind staff, such good food especially the Silan dessert, well worth it!
Food was very tasty and it was a fun restaurant. Would go back!
Excellent middle eastern cuisine, professional and friendly service, in an energetic setting.
This place checks all the boxes. Great food, atmosphere and service. Reasonable prices for fine dining. I highly recommend it.
The kabobs were served burnt. We sent it back to the kitchen and still had to pay for it. Very disappointing
Excelent food and very good service
Very nice Restaurant.
The food was good and the service was great.
As an Israeli i liked the music and the vibe in there/
Dinner & service was fabulous.
New Years Eve was a blast—great food, great service, fun mixed crowd, great room and great tunes!!!!!
But it’s fun any night we have been. Highly recommended.
New Years dinner- great food/ great drinks and amazing atmosphere. We’ve celebrated here several times.
New Years Eve.
Octopus, duck and short rib were to die for! Panna cotta and cheesecake were also delicious. Only minor critique I’d make is that the red snapper special was a touch over cooked, but the grilled corn and root vegetables that it came with were amazing! Thank you for an incredibly special night!!
Fast service, great food. Dessert was amazing.
Great Food and service. A bit noisy but the atmosphere makes up for it. Price in line with the quality of the food.
Everything was great. Especially service and the server team
Service was exceptional. Food was excellent. Will visit again in the future.
A fantastic place to eat !
The food is the best but there should be spacing between tables. It’s too crowded.
El servicio fue muy bueno y la comida también, como fuimos a la cena de víspera de navidad esperábamos un ambiente más tranquilo con la música más baja para poder conversar, pero en general el ambiente fue muy agradable.
Great as always! We enjoyed our lunch yesterday. Love this restaurant!!
Very happy with the octopus appetizer. It was perfectly cooked, not too soft but not too chewy either. Had the branzini as the main dish. Very tasty, wish the fish portion was bigger compared to the broccoli portion which took up most of the plate.
Very happy with our cocktails. Tried the Casablanca and the Indigo, both delicious.
Overall very happy with both food and service. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent Middle Eastern Fare!
If you’re vegan or just hungry for some fine flavors
from the Middle East. We had the Mezze appetizer platter which was ample for 4 but you may want to double or triple up on their flatbread so you can sop up every last dip. I had the Duck with Black Rice which was delicious, and ice cream with shaved Halavah for desert, extraordinary and the portion will serve 2-3.
Really beautiful food and decor. Try the cauliflower, it’s outstanding !
First time food was great!!!!
The food and ambience is great at Barbounia! Perfect spot for a large group
Great food, Eduardo the Manager was terrific. Service is rushed and of course line all restaurants now, very expensive.
Amazing place! I really enjoyed
Loved the seers. Comfy. Although food came out a little too fast. A little bit rushed but it’s lunch and I get it
Consistently very good.
Food is original and beautifully presented.
The Spinach Shakshuka was delicious.
Very nice atmosphere, very good food and service.
Delicious!!!! Everything was devoured and we definitely are adding this to our short list of places to return.
