    seared salmon and ribs are excellent. Actually, everything I've had has been very good. The restaurant environment itself was a little too warm and sadly the red wine was served waaay to warm. I hate warm red wine. Serve at room temperature doesn't mean 70+ degrees. As alway, I find that disappointing for a restaurant touting great wine list. All in all, something for any occasion.

    Barrett's hits on all cylinders! We were politley greeted as soon as we walked in the restaurant. Our server David was knowledgeable articulate and polite. The Asian Mango leaf salad with shrimp was delicious. Shrimp Cargot (house specialty) was buttery and tasted as it should have tasted! My boneless braised short ribs with Mongolian BBQ and shaved Brussel sprouts were tender and delicous and the Brussels were perfectly cooked. Corn and crab chowder...awesome. Then the house made whipped cream and fresh fruit Napoleon was a perfect ending. The restaurant was filled and they had a 50 person party in the party room made it obvious to me they are Seasoned operators and talented chefs in the kitchen. Perfect place for any occasion.

    We were greeted at the door and promptly escorted to our table of choice. Service after that was attentive but not intrusive. The menu choices were varied to the extent that we had difficulty deciding what to order. What we did order was timed nicely, served hot, and was delicious. We will have to return soon to try more choices.

    Waitress was very nice and attentive, however, we felt rushed. Our appetizers came within 10 minutes of ordering. After appetizers were finished, salad came quickly and dinner followed quickly behind the salad. We were there to celebrate our 36th anniversary and were looking for a place with ambiance and to be able to have a nice relaxing evening. We were in and out in a little over an hour - a little disappointing. The food was ok -- nothing special.

The short ribs are to die for!!!! We have brought several friends here and they are hooked as well. EVERYTHING is great! Fresh, great presentation, reasonable prices... our "go to" place in the Hunt Valley area.

    When we arrived, the restaurant had no record of our Open Table reservation, but they seated us promptly. The waitress was friendly and helpful. My husband had the meatloaf stack with mashed potatoes and rated it B+. I enjoyed a Barrett's salad, salmon, and vegetable medley, all of which were delicious.

    Barrett's is one of the few, non-corporate restaurants in the Hunt Valley area. The food was fresh, very flavorful, and plenty of variety. The lunch special of soup and sandwich were paired very well from a flavor standpoint and it was just enough. Service was very good also. If you like having your meal come out of bags and cans, go to a chain. If you want something that is fresher, try Barrett's. I'll be going back for dinner.

    We had a great dining experience at Barrett's Grill. Our server, Liz, was exceptional. She was pleasant, knowledgable about the menu/specials as well as wines and attentive without being overbearing - with a wonderful sense of humor to boot. Liz and the kitchen staff appeared to time our meal so that every dish was perfectly paced. The Ahi Tuna starter, Chilean Sea Bass and New Zealand Rack of Lamb were all delicious. Entrees include a small salad and side; portions are reasonable as are the prices. Barrett's Grill far surpassed my expectations. The service was superior and greatly enhance our dining experience. I would definitely return.

    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.

    Visited Barrett's Grill using a Groupon and were thoroughly impressed with the service, food, presentation, and overall atmosphere of the restaurant. We are considering using this restaurant for our wedding rehearsal dinner in the future and wanted to 'preview' the restaurant first. The service was great; waitress refilled our drinks prior to them running out; repeatedly checked on us; made sure my steak was cooked to my liking before leaving. My fiancé order the daily special, which was a fish entrée and it was delicious. I ordered the Filet Napoléon and was just as pleased with my entrée. Dinner rolls were hot and fresh. We also tried the Chili and Crème Brulee with our meal. Again, very impressed with the portion and taste.

    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).

    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.
