Extremely disappointed with my experience at Baar Baar. The hostess wouldn’t sit us until all members of the party were there. 7/8 were there and when the 8th member arrived the hostess had already gave our table away, and there were no tables remaining- I’ve never experienced this at any of the hundreds of NYC restaurants I’ve been to. Our reservation was at 830 and we didn’t sit until 930. No comped drinks or apps, slow waiter service and overall just super eh experience. Would not recommend Baar Baar and was disappointed that I chose this spot for my birthday celebration!

I was very excited to go to Baar Baar for the first time. I went on Friday. To my disappointment, food was subpar and service was rushed. The food was very underwhelming. In addition, service etiquette is an issue. My food was taken away when I was not done. The only thing I would rave about is the ambience- very chic and lively. Overall, I left knowing that it was not a place I would repeat, unless I was getting a quick drink.

Ahmed the server was amazing he deserves a raise, the food is good the scallops are new and worth a try, there is nothing on the menu that will disappoint you and if you have Ahmed as your server your service will be excellent

We had one extra person join and instead of squishing us at our original table they gave us a full booth! Great hospitality. Fantastic food, drinks, everything. Get the margarita and the bronzino.

We have been to Baar Baar multiple times in the past and its been a blast! unfortunately, this past Sunday we went to their brunch and the ambiance & general vibe was just dull and disappointing!, Food & Service was great as usual, but Baar Baar experience is 50% food/Service 50% ambiance. the last 50% was totally missing. the DJ was absolutely horrendous.

The older lady at the front desk was very rude and kept staring at us. But the rest of the staff was ok and the food was good, but I would definitely not say the best indian food in town.

They manage to make indian food flavorless plus expensive .
The restaurant and service was nice but without good food that means nothing.

Nice environment and good service. The food was interesting, but largely mediocre (except dessert, which was great). As a fan of modern/fusion Indian food, I found the meal underwhelming.

I don’t remember the name of our waitress but it seemed like the entire time she was rushing us. From the moment we got seated. Even when she was taking our orders she was trying to rush to leave. My group and I were not too happy about the whole experience. Even towards the end, we were told to hurry up bc they were expected another reservation but we can go sit at the bar. I’ve been to baar baar probably over 6 times now, I would say 4 of the 6 times I’ve had bad experiences with service now. I always try to give them another chance but it seems there’s always an issue at this point. Food and drinks are great. A bit pricey but the money isn’t the issue. The servicing needs to change

We made reservations for four people outside and knew that we would have to order off the brunch menu. When we arrived at the restaurant we were told that no children were allowed on Saturdays. I responded that there was no such thing on the website after which a gentleman behind me walked right in with a two year old (my children are old enough to have been vaccinated and we were sitting outdoors so why would they care about children in the restaurant?). From there on out all interactions were curt/rude. First I was asked to show my vaccination card which I did and showed them my children’s vaccination cards as well at which point the host to snapped at me and said we don’t need to see vaccination cards for those under 12. When I return to the restaurant at the end of the meal to use the bathroom with my child, I was almost grabbed halfway to the restaurant by the bouncer who told me to show my vaccination an ID card before entering the restaurant. I told him I was a diner and was just using the bathroom with my child at which point he said oh well then that’s OK. I just don’t think his first response should be to manhandle us. I have been very excited about Baar Baar and been several times since I discovered it in the summer. I think this last experience has left me not wanting to return. Also, left this review for the restaurant privately, so they can respond first, but haven’t heard from them in a month, so posting publicly

The food was ok. Dinner menu was def much better . The singer was not great for a Saturday brunch. Brunch menu puts a lot of restrictions on ordering with limited options for sides

Not worth the money!!! Baar Baar's word of mouth far overshadows the actual experience of a paying customer. When asked about allergies, the staff had no idea and mistakenly recommended foods on the menu. They were out of almost all non-alcoholic drinks in the peak of their brunch hour. The dancing and the music was fun, but the man singing karaoke would get very very loud - should just stop. It is a minimum $40/person which does not get you huge portions. Overrated and not a fantastic dining experience

Great place if you like Indian. Nice vibe and friendly service. Food was a bit heavy for my liking but comes with the Indian food choice overall. Plates are small and a good night out!!

My husband and I, ate their tonight. By the time we reached home .. my husband started feeling stomach ache and felt uneasy. Also the food did not feel fresh and the roti we ordered was cold first time and we asked them to replace it.

The price is not at all worth for the portions and food taste is very average. Also, the thing that surprised me - we had to pay for chutney!! (Which I hope to get it with my appetizer)

Overall, the experience did not meet our expectations.

Baar Baar was great! The food was all good and the service was efficient. I didn’t find anything to be obviously superior to other good Indian restaurants, including less expensive Indian restaurants, which is why I rated Baar Baar as 4 stars (and not 5 stars).
