    I hosted a group of six for dinner around 5 in the evening. We were seated on the 'bar side' of the restaurant, which was very relaxed. We were served quickly and efficiently. Our waiter was proficient and attentive. We all enjoyed our drinks, appetizers and meals, each served with the right timing. We did not feel rushed at all. Very enjoyable dining experience...

    We had our couple friends from JohnsCreek meet us for dinner and drinks. All four of us loved our meal and the waitor was very attentive. The appetizers were delicious, the drinks were very good and our entrees were spot on great. Thanks for making our night with friends a great experience. We frequent Baraonda's so we always enjoy our evenings.

    Always a go-to place for client lunches especially when time is of the essence, Baraonda has become our favorite for after the show. Well-managed front of the house and really good food! My dining partners loved the polipo appetizer. A favorite is the seafood pasta with Georgia shrimp. And they have real buffalo mozzarella (an upcharge but well worth it). Don't miss the house-made limoncello!

    We brought a group of 12 - choir members and their families - to Baraonda after our concert on 8/3. I lunch here regularly and always enjoy the food and am pleased with the service. They did a nice job with our large group and multiple checks. The menu is diverse enough to satisfy those who do not want the trendy Italian fare.

    My wife and I had our first date at baraonda. We return every year to celebrate. The menu seems to have been pared down a bit over the years, but the remaining dishes are flavorful. Great pasta. Great pizza/flatbreads. We love the calamari. Varied, but not an expansive or overwhelming wine list. We've dined here over 10+ times over the past 7 years and have never had a bad experience.

    First, we enjoyed ourselves, the food was good, as was the service, and the wine was excellent. We would go back now that we know what really is and is not on the menu. I chose this restaurant based first on location and second because there were three items on their website menu that I really wanted to try. None of them were on the menu I was handed and there seemed to be a much smaller selection than I remembered. I asked about the lamb shank and was told it had not been on the menu for months. However, she continued, although there was no lamb on the menu and it had not been mentioned as one of the specials, there might be something in the kitchen. I was offered rack of lamb. It was delicious.

    I've relied on Baraonda for quick but client-worthy weekday luncheons for a couple of years. I've recently discovered that it's a fun and affordable spot for before- or after-Fox events. Be sure to make a reservation! Just this weekend our waiter Dan was extremely accommodating and patient with some difficult people in my party. The food is really good, and there's a short but interesting wine list and a nice selection of craft beers.

    Early reservation before show at Fox. Great food. Moderate service (he seemed overwhelemed. Didn't know dinner specials. Slow with bar service). Get the lasagne. Ladies room was a wreck. Toilet issues. Paper on floor. When I told the host (who was gabbing with the other host) his response was, there is another bathroom.

    We've been to Baraonda many times over the years. It's always good. The pizza is always fantastic, rating right up there with other great Atlanta pizza restaurants (Fritti, Antico, etc.). My wife had pizza, and I had the veal scallopini, which was excellent. Our server was good and fairly efficient, if not overly friendly. But it was busy and hectic, so I can't necessarily blame her. It's loud and bustling in the bar area where we sat, so conversation was sometimes challenging, which is too bad. But overall, our dining experience - the food and wine and atmosphere - were positive, which has always been the case every time we've been there. We will be back!

    I always dine at Baraonda when in Atlanta but was disappointed with this visit. Food was great but the staff was disorganized. We arrived early for our reservation so had a drink at the bar. Our dining time came and went but no one took us to a table although there were many visible empty areas. Had to go to the hostess desk and ask when we would be seated. We dined outside which had an odd smell.

    hi, here's your food, here's your check, bye. I've been to Baraonda before for lunch and found the food and service to be excellent. There was interaction with the servers, inquiries as to how the food was, did we want anything else etc... I guess the dinner plan is get the folks in and out to the show at the Fox so dispense with anything else. The food was good, they got you in and out in a hurry - whether you were in a rush or not. Next time we are heading to the Fox we'll go someplace more relaxing.

    JDAtlanta
    Dined on 5/24/2014
    Our dinner was great--except for the dessert. Since we had such a great experience with each of our three courses, we decided to get the typical Italian standards for dessert: cannoli and gelato--what a mistake. These were the things that brought down my food and overall scores from 5-star to 4-star. We got three mini cannoli with a liquify center and bitter chocolate, and pistachio gelato that was just basically ice cream--not smooth, creamy gelato. Also, I had to ask the assistant server for both parmesan cheese and ground pepper for our pizza--why? Wouldn't this be automatic? The other servers were great, although our lead server seemed a bit nervous--likely he was new. NOTE: I really love this restaurant; I hated to write this review.

    1/2 block to Fabulous Fox Theater, Baraonda is frequented by couples and families before the live shows year round. But it's great for a personal indulgence any day or night. I often go for lunch, and the authentic specials and regular menu items are outstanding and consistent. This trip was with family, and they loved it. Great crew in the front of the house. Go!

    We dinned at 3pm in advance of a matinee theater performance at the fox. Restaurant wasn't very busy so hard to tell what the service and ambience would normally offer. Pizzas were excellent - my kids had the margaretta and we the lamb sausage/green olives/feta. Both were very tasty. Cesar and calamari were average. The lasagna was the best I've ever had. It appears Baraonda makes their own in-house noodles and that made the lasagna to die for. Highly recommend it.
