HORRIFIC FOOD, WORSE SERVICE. My family and I came here on a Tuesday night, visiting from NY, where kids under 10 eat free( basic chicken fingers and mac and cheese menu). Why would a restaurant have a kids way free option if they HATE CHILDREN? The arrogant and very inhospitable owner came over to us at least 5x to remind us to keep the kids in their chairs ( they are 1,3 and 9,10). He was rude and did not offer any kindness in any way. As a matter of fact, he looked like he wanted us to leave. Now to the food, we ordered drinks ( watered down), oysters rockafeller ( no flavor! No garlic??) jumbo crab salad ( bleak.. No acidity?) and two fish entrees ( almost $30 for each). They tasted close to hospital cafeteria food.
The side dishes looked like it was canned? Canned baby corn? Just awful.
In fairness, the decor is lovely and our waiter was nice. It was the owner and the food that was horrific. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS ESTABLISHMENT!!!!

Met a friend here for cocktails and a bite. That was 1 month ago. Since then, we have returned 4 times. On 2 visits we brought friends. This just might be a diamond in the rough. They take reservations , work the menu for any dietary need. Have added flowers, curtains and some chair cushions in a short amount of time. Great cold cold martini. Good varied food selection. Let's support the good and cherish a reservation!!! Good luck...I/we will be back again'

We stopped in to relax and catch the FIFA World Cup final match. Good selection of beers on tap. The appetizers that we had were very good. I recommend the "Beef and Toast". Bar has nice lighting, great atmosphere. We've been looking for a local, relaxing "hangout". We may have found it!

Tried this place out for the first time. Menu options are diverse and appear appetizing. I had the skirt steak and unfortunately it was a little bland. I would consider trying this place out again. I think it has potential.

From the moment you enter Barnwood Grill you are transported into the heart of New York City. Class, sophistication a great menu and fabulous wine menu. The wait staff is acutely attentive to any of your needs and make great suggestions. The prices are not cheap but well worth the meal you receive. Sitting outside on Queen Street on a glorious evening is amazing. Do not miss this specail restaurant before everyone discovers it and you can't get in.
