Ignore that service review that rated this place a 1

I've been in Bar Tano a couple of times during the day, once for coffee and another time for a business lunch and this place is great. I've had an excellent squash soup, salad and a pretty passable spaghetti with a bacon cream sauce that just needed an acid to be excellent. Atmosphere and decor are quite good as well and I've never had a problem with service. There might be better places if you're looking for a true destination restaurant. However, considering your other dining options on this side of Gowanus, this place should seem like entering the gates of heaven. I'm rating this a 10 to balance out that whiny 1 rating.

great place - horrible service

i had a friend in from out of town and we went for brunch - their first day of brunch, we were informed. granted we had already ordered, but the waitress grabbed the menu out of my hand while i was still reading it. the food was wonderful... but she started to clear away my plate while i had my fork in hand, food in my mouth and a few bites left of the somewhat meager proportion. i would definitely return, but i would hope the wait staff had improved dramatically in the interim. i would also wish for refillable coffee.

Worst service ever...SERIOUSLY

We had the WORST service we have ever had in any borough of NYC. First, we sat at the bar while waiting for a table and watched another party of 2 walk in off the street and be sat before us. Our appetizers came with our meal, my wife received the wrong entree and I was forced to eat my entree while she waited for hers. She then received the incorrect entree for a second time. She originally ordered a mozzarella panini with pesto. The first panini to come out was ricotta and eggplant. When it came out again it was missing the pesto. When we told our server about it, he came back and slammed a cup of pesto on our table and walked away. We then decided to leave with her only taking two bites out of her panini. We were only comped for her entrée, even though our entire meal was ruined. The worst part was that our server never even apologized. I would never go there again. Our ENTIRE night was ruined and all we received was 12 dollars off our bill.
