Arrived about 2 pm and was seated quickly. Place was packed. Service was friendly and helpful. Burgers are excellent. Lots of choices for burger types. Grilled chicken was a little tough but tasty. Zucchini fries are a must. Very good! Priced reasonably. A great menu for different shakes. My hubby and I will be back.

Food was delicious; however the service was AWFUL!!!! That is why I am giving it one star! We were seated quickly. The waiter took forever to get us water and then we waited even longer to have our order taken. We ordered a milkshake but the waiter didn't even pay attention to what we ordered and had to ask him twice about it!! The waiter never came by to ask how our food was or even refill our waters they didn't even give us silverware or napkins til we had to ask for them after we got our food. We had to ask the bus boy for water. Food was great but the serviced killed it for us!

Stopped by Burger Bar after shopping at Macy's, since it's conveniently located on the 6th floor. There's a great view of Union Square from this restaurant, but sadly, I can say that the view is the only good thing about this place. Service and food are mediocre. My burger was pretty similar to what you have in a Carl's Jr. An overcooked beef patty with no flavor on a tasteless bun. Clearly, a tourist trap. Dessert? No, thank you.

Try their buffalo burger. It's sooo good. I like this place mainly for the view of Union Square. This burger joint is tucked inside the Macy's Building. With only 3 locations in the US, this place is actually really good. You get to build your own burger the way you want it. Want a brioche bun? Or, a wheat bun? Got it. No onions. Great. No fries? Ok. OR, you can order from the right side of the menu and get their recommended pairings. I took my uncle here last Monday night. The place is a great for lunch, dinner, a drink, just for watching the ice skaters on the rink...perfect for dates/group gatherings.

While the burger was adequate for the price... I was introduced to boozy shakes here. It changed my life.

Oh Hubert, we had such high expectations. To make a long story short, we arrived right before the dinner rush. It took about 15 minutes to get seated, which was the amount of time estimated, so + for the accurate time of seating. After we sat down, the experience as a whole went slowly down hill. To start, my coke was a bit flat and it took me a few minutes to wave down a waiter to switch to something else. It took me another few minutes to get his attention so that I could get a filled bottle of ketchup. It seems like the staff has laser eye line of sight and don't see anything except whats in front of them. It improved by the end of the night, but we were about finished by then - so negative points for that. The food was prepared well. I got the Hubert Burger and it was moist for a buffalo patty. Unfortunately the toppings weren't applied with much care. The spinach was all to one side and the caramelized onions weren't evenly distributed either. I had to open up the burger and center everything myself. Also, by the time I got the burger the bottom was already a bit soggy, so taking time to center everything didn't help with the already drenched bottom half. All-in-all, this felt more like a $10 burger and not a $23 burger. I guess the extra $10 pays for the experience/location/ambiance. Unfortunately only the location deserves anything higher than a neutral recommendation. We also ordered the sliders. They were OK. Nothing noteworthy either way. One potential positive note is that the milk shakes looked good. I'm not a big milk shake person and my fiance doesn't handle them well - (TMI, I know) - so we didn't order any, but the presentation of their milk shake sampler looked quite delish

I cannot even begin to tell you how awful my dining experience was. The service and food was horrendous. This is my 2nd visit and will be my last. We chose burger bar instead of the cheesecake factory. First, they took our names at 7.45 and said the wait was half hour(because we wanted a window seat to look at the Christmas lights). We were finally seated at 8.45 and guess what- we were squeezed right next to another family and the huge wreath hanging from the Macy’s window. The server dint show up for almost 15 mins and by the time our food arrived it was 9.30. Over salted burger, soggy fries and miserably grilled, mushy vegetables. Hubert Keller, I love you with all my heart and rooted for you in Master Chefs. We have dined at fleur de lys and your wife was beyond a gracious hostess. Please, please teach the hostess, wait staff and servers at this location what restaurant dining is all about. The management and cleanliness of the restaurant is scarily sub-par.

I need another tapenade burger! Delicious & simple. Everyone at our table was extremely satisfied with their hamburgers. Do NOT get the thin fries though (regular old fries). Sub par addition to an otherwise great meal.
