Great Time - Cocina del Barrio
Went to dinner with my daughter and we thought we would try the Cocina del Barrio restaurant - what a pleasant surprise. Service and food were impeccable!! We were seated right on time with our reservation and we totally enjoyed the experience, everything from the Black Bean Amish Chicken Tostados to the skirt steak tacos to the cinnamon crepes. We are looking forward to our next visit!!

As always, the food was excellent.
As always, the food was excellent. My only complaint about Cocina is the noise level. I wish it were a little less tinny and loud. I understand there's an ambiance that the owner's are going for, but it does influence my decision to eat there more often.

Fish tacos from heaven.
The food is the main driver of this restauant. The tostada, fish tacos, guacamole and carnitas tacos are worth coming back and back for. I dare you to stray from your usual at Barrio, because so many of the dishes are fantastic. The atmosphere is family friendly and welcoming. It is also a great spot to sit at the bar.

Mother's Day brunch
We'd never been here for brunch before. It was fantastic. The huevos rancheros were out of this world.

Best Mexican food in Minneapolis
My second trip to a Barrio restaurant and once again fantastic. Live in the California and travel to MN frequently, but had never found a high quality Mexican joint, until I found Barrio.

Great margaritas, small plates, fantastic guac! We also had the corn chowder - very, very good. The noise is a bit high in the bar area but better in the dining room. Very nice outdoor patio.

Great food and wonderful service.
Great food and wonderful service. It was great to try so many different dishes, and eat at a leisurely pace. We spent a long time at our table, but never felt rushed.

FAB CORN CHOWDER!
We will definitely return. Our food was wonderful, especially the corn chowder. We originally asked to be seated in the main dining room, and finding it with several families with small kids, we asked to be moved to a bar booth. We were very happy with our booth and enjoyed the experience.

great service / small plates
We love going to Cocina del Barrio for the small plates to share. We like to order one item at a time, and we rarely have to wait very long before our next selection arrives at the table. Great service always and while the menu is not huge, there is always a great variety of flavors and interesting combinations.

I love Barrio!
My favorite Barrio is of course the original on Nicollet Ave, but this one in Edina has a very nice feel as well. The food, service, drinks, are all amazing. The place seems to be managed very well and run by well trained people. I enjoy myself everytime I visit.

Lots of room for late brunch table
Went to Sunday brunch at 1:30 pm- almost the only ones in the place! Got very prompt, attentive service from very personable server- wish I could remember his name- had been in the music business and his people skills showed. Food was prepared freshly for us, and they even made fresh churros for our birthday dessert, even though they had said they were out at first (spiced chocolate dipping sauce was so-o-o good!). Trio of salsas and chips was exceptional. Fresh guac is always good. Pork tacos were delicious as was the chicken enchilada. Only down side was the chorizo hash was a bit greasy. Too bad the Vikings are so bad this year or the place would have been hopping- flat screens had the game playing.

Food was great, but a bit spicy for the usual midwestern palate. The waitress did warn us that a couple menu items were spicy, but usually when someone claims spicy in Minnesota it means it has flavor. A couple dishes were REALLY spicy. Overall great flavor to everything we ordered.

We always enjoy Barrio. Drinks
We always enjoy Barrio. Drinks are good. Food is interesting and most things we've tried have been great (beef on a skewer is awesome). Have had some great service--were there for lunch the other day and they were willing to make us something from the dinner menu that we love. We keep coming back...

Great food - rocky start
The food at Barrio was excellent but we waited for over 10 minutes before a waiter even came to our table - the building was not full just under staffed - once we got a waiter he was great - we had corn soup, mahi mahi taco, grilled shrimp skewers and chips and salsa - all excellent!!!

Went for Sunday Brunch and had a fantastic meal. Couldn't believe the place wasn't packed. The food was incredible. We'll be going back for dinner and drinks. Super bar area.

Fun Night Out
What great service and a fun night out for 10 of us. We sat in the back room and had great tapas! We all shared everything and it was delicious!

Terrific food, outstanding service, but the noise level was a little too high. A party of six, a round table, and I couldn't hear the people across from me.
