    the food was delicious but he portions were ridiculously small. $28 entree that could fit on a bread plate. Felt the whole time we were being rushed out. I don't want to interact and be interrupted by the whole staff. at one point, a man came across the room with his hand extended. i went to say hello but he was not reaching to shake my hand, he had spied a plate he wanted to remove from my table. leave us be!

    The appetizers were very good. We had chicken tortilla soup and tex-mex egg rolls. I had the prime rib as my entree and gave up halfway through because it took too much effort to cut through. My husband had the filet medallions. He said the Demi-glaze was too rich for his liking. We both asked for new steak knives because the meat toughness presented a challenge for both of us. While all the servers were very attentive, I would have preferred a slower pace to the meal overall. The appetizers were delivered quickly and before we had the opportunity to finish the appetizers and my salad, the entrees arrived. By the time I was ready to begin the entree, it was cold. The restaurant was a little too noisy for me.

    Ahi tuna entrees were delicious. Restaurant was packed and therefore loud and noisy. Hard to hear my husband. There was music as well but that made the space too crowded. Despite the noise I would return because the food including rice, broccoli, salad, rolls -everything was so good

    I must say, the service at Barrett's is very good, however, the food is inconsistent. Their menu is so predictable since they don't ever change. A good idea is to flip out your menu, keep the decent items, and have a seasonal menu like most restaurants.

    I went to Barrett's Grill for the sake of my wife who loves this restaurant. Specifically she finds the steak and especially the Sweet and Spicy Calamari the best she ever tasted (she is something of a calamari aficionado). However the mussels appetiser special she had this time was way too spicy. I happened to be a vegetarian and find the single vegetarian entry (Vegetable Stack) nice but way too small for a meal. I think the portion size and the lack of accompaniments make it a better candidate for an appetizer section of the menu (this is the 2nd time I try it: the 1st time I believe it was served with a small house salad, now the waiter told me it doesn't come with any accompaniments).

    Nice bar area and friendly bartenders. Great drinks. 4 of us went and everyone loved their dinners - the salmon I got was the best I've had anywhere. Our waiter, Ethan was friendly, patient and courteous and took very good care of us. The evening was a wonderful dining experience. Can't wait to go back.

    The dinner started well then went downhill. I had the crab and corn soup and hubbie had the house salad and both were good. The main course had issues. Hubbie ordered swordfish with scalloped potatoes. I ordered scallops and a side of brussels sprouts for us to share. We were both served scallops with no sides. It is not like they just served the order to the wrong table because it took a very long time for his entree to arrive. His swordfish was good. My risotto and spinach were tasty. The scallops, however, were awful. They were sandy and had a terrible aftertaste. I said something to the server who told the manager. They were very apologetic and both dinners were comped, which we did not expect. The food score of "3" is avg of 2 & 4.

    I love this restaurant. Tuesday and Thursday nights there is a group who plays light jazz and they have 1/2 price bottles of wine. They have an excellent wine list. The waiter missed giving us our rolls (which are excellent and served hot) but we did not leave hungry. The soup of the day was a tortilla soup which was excellent. Not too spicy so all the flavors were there for the tasting. Loved the chunks of avocado in it. The pork tenderloin served over mashed sweet potatoes was excellent. The shaved brussel sprouts were unusual and very tasty. Great meal. They have an excellent wait staff as well. Always enjoy this outing.

    This was the 4th visit to Barrett's and compared to other visits, it was just okay. The food was warm at best, the rolls were hot though. And our server did keep our drinks filled. Other than that, there were intrusions by the waitstaff which made my girlfriend feel uncomfortable and our seating was next to the door for the patio area, so there was constant traffic and noise. As always our appetizer was awesome, but the pricing for the menu had changed drastically from what it had stated online.

    I had been to Barrett's twice for lunch and suggested that my husband and I should try it for dinner. A nice surprise, Thursday night is half price wine night, and the wine list is quite extensive. My husband had a strip steak and I had Chilean sea bass. Added bonus: live music! The preparation, presentation, and service were lovely. This is a great find--a good value for good food with nice ambiance.

    Phil, the bartenderslashwaiter consistently provides outstanding service, drink recommendations, etc. as the rest of the waitstaff pitches in when they pass. Always a friendly atmosphere with friendly clientele. Entrees were very good, but I would not order calamari again. Very salty with a bit too much of a bite from the peppers. The lobster roll is a great menu item, but the promised special herb mayonnaise tasted quite ordinary. Groupons always helpful!

    This is my third time at Barrett's. I love the outdoor seating and our food was good (not great) but the service we received was really not up-to-par this time. I could see our server chatting with a coworker for about 4 minutes before greeting us, she forgot our drinks (then again we had to wait close to 10 minutes for refills) and my husband's food came out incorrectly, which they did fix. Overall, I wasn't that impressed. This is my husband's first visit and he is adamant he won't return.

    Well we thought we were off to a really bad start when my husband and I arrived for his birthday dinner with reservations and we were escorted to a table for 6, telling us it was the last table available!!! They easily could have remade the table before they brought us to it and there would have been no issue but it was laughable! On to the meal...our waiter was great! Our drinks, not so great. After a "fix" one was made acceptable. Our waiter, however, was excellent. Made a ho hum dinner a lot more fun when he let us taste two wines before choosing and then again for my husband's glass. The prime rib was actually very good. The swordfish was also good. Crispy oysters were tasty but not memorable. Berry napoleon for dessert was tasty.

    Four of us went there during Baltimore County Restaurant Week. We sat outside in a nice shady area, and had an outstanding server (Stephanie) who answered our many questions and made recommendations on both food and wine. Service was at a good pace -- not rushed, but we didn't wait long for any course, either. All of the food was wonderful. The duck ravioli was amazing and we are hoping it gets added to the regular menu. The creme brulee was among the best we've had anywhere. We will definitely be back.
