The duck confit salad was a bit dry but as always hanger steak did not disappoint. Just wish this place could be slightly quieter. It is always very noisy.

Wonderful meal. Felt rushed. Our food came before we finished our appetizer and the staff hovered as if they wanted us to hurry up.

Usually love the brunch. Steel cut came out so watery had to send it back. Omelets were over cooked and not hot. The busboy came back three time to clear plates while we were still eating. Very disappointing, not a norm ☹️

Grandchildren from Philadelphia visiting with us. Grandson is a baker at Park Restaurant in Philadelphia, a major French restaurant. He was very impressed with Bar Frites. Enjoyed the breads and that’s a real compliment as he is a top baker. We all enjoyed ourselves entirely. This is one of my favorite places to dine.

Bar Frites use to be my favorite place to go 5+ years ago, been there only a handful of times since, food hasn't been the same, service was mediocre. Had the wild mushroom pasta, very oily, 2 waiters spilled a drink on us running around, 2!!!! Place use to be much better, I think Mr. Poll needs to upgrade this restaurant. Examples.. chairs were flimsy and not very secure, salt and pepper shakers are the kind you find in a diner and were dented, water glasses were dirty. Details that as a person who is out to dinner 3-4 times a week noticed. I hope they get it together because it is a great spot to go.

High praise for the staff (how they remember me and make me feel so welcome each time!) and the front desk (professionals all!). The food is exquisite - I thought the best mashed potatoes were in Paris (ok, mashed potatoes are like ice cream to me :- ) but the plate I enjoyed yesterday was heaven, along with the soup. And fresh, hot coffee! I often go for business meetings (at least once a month) but return and recommend whenever possible. Thank you! Dr. Jack Barnathan

My husband and I enjoyed lunch at Bar Frites, this past Thursday.
Our waiter was very attentive, and promptly brought us an ample basket of bread.
We ordered an egg white omelette, with crispy french fries, for my husband, and salmon with lentils, for me.
Our dishes were very much to our satisfaction.
Although the restaurant was very crowded, due to its wonderful, relaxed ambience, the noise level was not loud, but quite pleasant.
We could easily carry on a conversation, with ease.
My husband and I very much like to dine at this restaurant.
We look forward to our next time.

This place has a nice ambiance and price fixed lunch. My girlfriends and I went for lunch but ordered off the regular menu. The food is very good. It is noisy but not as much as some places we've been too. The chairs are hard wood. That's one thing to consider if you have any back issues. It's just not that comfortable seating. But the service is good; there's easy parking and great shopping nearby.

You can’t put tables everywhere possible giving tables inches away from each other, everything is so crammed. It’s definitely not a place for evening dinner. I’ve come there in the day and it’s very lovely. Have you also considered a dinner meal with more choices? Our waiter or busboy kept on asking to take our appetizers away and they were not finished. I wouldn’t come there for dinner again. Not happy with my experience overall.

service bad, waiter didn't understand "salad dressing on the side" and there was butter smeared under the butter plate. He walked away grumbling when I pointed out the mistake in my order. Worse than a diner.

I had brunch here and it was delicious. The French Toast with berries and sausages was an excellent choice and I had truffle fries too. Eating here is like eating good old soul food!

Always love Bar Frites, best neighborhood spot in Roslyn! My go-tos are the Chinese chicken salad and the French onion soup! I also love the sliders here, I've tried each one and they are all fabulous!
