Came in here on advice of docent at Merchant's House Museum nearby and was not disappointed. Lunchtime was quiet on a rainy day with the large outdoor area not being used. The fireplace was lit and added atmosphere and coziness to the large main room. Service was good and the salade nicoise was excellent, generous size and reasonable price. Highly... More

As per usual, we were wandering the streets for a dinner spot and stumbled upon B-Bar. It was a nice evening and I liked they had outdoor seating. Hubby opted for chicken, and I got the mezze plate and lamb meatballs. Both were on the bland side and the hummus was lacking in both oil and seasoning. If you're gonna... More

Went here for dinner with friends. Good food and great drinks. Service was a little inattentive, but not to the point where it was a problem. We had dinner in one of the main rooms, in a booth, and then moved to one of the cozier back rooms to get more drinks at the bar. We had the calamari for... More

Loved the venue, food good but service disappointing. Staff not communicating so orders not arriving, coffee forgotten etc. Shame as food pretty good and nice setting.

I've been a few times and am always willing to go again. I love sitting outside in the twinkling lights of the patio. Very pretty and romantic. Great atmosphere for a party or just to quietly sit and talk. A varied menu that has something for everyone.

The outdoor patio really can't be beat for a restaurant setup in lower Manhattan. The drink prices are a little too high for my liking, but all in all, I would recommend!

The B-Bar is short for Bowery Bar. This interestingly-designed East Village restaurant, a former Gulf station, is comfortable and fun. The kitchen’s offerings range from burgers and pizza to steaks and grilled fish. The food is fine – not breath-taking, but competently prepared. The bar’s choices are equally mid-range with enough varieties to satisfy most diners. Our service was excellent... More
