Great selection of wine/beer
Great selection of wine/beer (all half-off til close on Mondays!) and yummy food. My friend and I both enjoyed good red wine and my pesto pasta was very fresh and flavorful. Our server was attentive and we liked the atmosphere -- good background music but not too loud to have trouble talking.

Loved the ambiance and the atmosphere of the place but we went during happy hour so it's a bit noisy, you have to yell to talk to someone right next to you. Server was for the most part attentive. I had the turkey burger and my boyfriend had the cheeseburger and both were completely devoured, delish!! Overall it's a pretty nice spot but if you want to have a good conversation I would go elsewhere.

I went to the restaurant because they had Passover friendly options. When they found out I was observing the holiday they asked what I could eat and put together a great entree from scratch, not something already on the menu. It was great. I really appreciated the effort and time they took to make something for me so I could enjoy an evening out with a friend with still observing my holiday traditions.

You Always Leave Happy!
BarCode happens to be in my office neighborhood. But - I would walk more than one or two block to get to it. The welcoming atmosphere, good quality menu offerings, wine selections and attentive, thoughtful service are all worth it. The experience is always the same - enjoyable. And if by chance there is some off-note, the staff will do everything possible to make things right. I have come with one friend, three friends and a group of eight. Everyone always comments how much they enjoyed BarCode.

Our server was fun and made great recommendations. Everything was delicious from the avocado dip and grilled calamari to the salmon and fish special entrees.

Friendly, very good lunch
Great lunch as always. I did notice one thing I appreciated. The restaurant was very busy and all of the booths were filled, except one. I had written a comment in the reservation for "booth if possible" and they held that one for us. Very nice.

Food was melt in your mouth delicious! Presentation was great and the service wonderful. Definitely going back there.

We had a great dinner. Happy hour on a Saturday night, made the final bill very reasonable. The Beet small plate and the Scallop entree special were both worth retuning for.

The food was delicious. Love,
The food was delicious. Love, love, love the grilled calamari. I was with a party of five, and heard great comments about the spicy shrimp, the chicken panini, the greek salad, and the atomic pizza. I look forward to coming back again for the food. That said I would say that the service was a little spotty. Refills on drinks without asking goes a long way, and being able to order second beers and other cocktails would have been appreciated. Also note, the restaurant is a little loud. This was not a problem for our party but if you are looking for a different sort of ambiance it is worth noting.

We met a couple vacationing in DC for lunch, and chose Barcode based on location and price. Beat our expectations, excellent venue and staff. I recommend this to everyone!!

my go to lunch spot
I always enjoy the people and food at barcode. I am a regular and prefer it over any other sit down lunch.spot in the downtown area (even mortons and blt). After work they have a very good happy hour.
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
As usual, a great lunch spot. I appreciate your always honoring our booth request.

Raining like crazy. Staying at University Club around corner. Used open table to find closest availible seating. Was not disappointed. Service excellent. Appetizers (mussels) excellent. Lamb chops and a penne pasta dish very good. Would go again.

I went there for a business lunch and at first the music was way too loud but, they were happy to lower the volume. The menu selection was good and food tasty.

Wish I came here more
I absolutely love the grilled calamari here. It keeps me coming back despite the fact that it is a little too far away from my normal lunch 3-4 block radius (this involves a metro ride). The other menu items I have tried were delicious as well, and what I have seen pass by as servers go back and forth looks lovely and is a big reminder to come here more often. I love that the front doors are thrown open on pretty days, it is so inviting. On the last two visits I will say that the service needs to be stepped up a little bit. It isn't bad, but it isn't great either. I have attended a happy hour and come for dinner as well. A comfortable venue with good food. I look forward to my next visit.

A Restaurant Gem
I have been going to Zaytinya for both lunch and dinner dining since it open ten years ago. I and my lunch and dinner companions have always been very pleased with the excellent food and attentive service. The menu has many offerings that are true delights.

Friendly and flexible management
Very friendly staff and detail oriented - we had lunch with friends on a weekday before their busy happy hour and the manager was kind enough to lower the temperature and noise level on the side we were sitting since we had a baby with us. Food was also good and service was expeditious.

A cool place
I nice place with decent food for descent prices. Its a restaurant, lounge, and bar scene all in one.
A classy casual place

Great restaurant week deal. For a couple bucks more than the entree, you get an appetizer and dessert. The salad with beets and shaved Pecorino was delicious with the added crunch from julienne jicima. I had the lobster roll with sweet potato fries. Sweet potato fries are now so common, but these were really excellent. Great crunch, nice mixture between sweet and salty, served with ketchup and an herb aioli. The lobster roll, however, we nearly devoid of the tasty crustacean and the bread was plain. It could have been much more, as the flavors were spot on with cucumber, red onion, mayo, etc. Dessert was tiramisu. I took it to go and my kids, who love tiramisu, demolished it in a nanosecond, so I'd have to guess it was pretty tasty.

Just some of food need be less money and drinks need not be that much but out side is wonderful don't need change nothing but need update music like r&b some slow jame 90s music and need not be so cold in restaurant that it really nice I love it.a

Nice pre-game spot!
This place has a little bit of everything! It was not too clubby and not too loungy, if you know what I mean. It had outside hookah, nice size dance floor, awesome food, great drinks and more! Everything you need to pre-game before you and your friends actually go to a clubby club, concert or wherever!!! I LOVED IT!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice small plates at a lounge
Definitely feels more like a bar scene, but the tuna ceviche was delicious as were the other small plates I shared with a friend - brussels sprouts, asparagus, and spicy shrimp. Tuesday was also half-priced wine bottle night AND we made it in time for happy hour. Too noisy for any serious or romantic dinner but it was good for a quick bite before our event down the street. Thanks barcode!

Good for casual lunch meetings
Not too crowded or noisy at lunchtime, barcode has a menu of smallish plates and can make a great place for a fairly quick business lunch. It's nicely placed between the posh lunch place and the fast-casual concept joint, which is a great niche and unusual in this neighborhood.

They know how to cook fish right
I tried the broiled fish sandwich for the first time. You get a nice thick piece of fish done just right. The waiter recommended I get it blackened and he was spot on. The waiter was attentive but not hovering. Perfect quick business lunch. I asked for a booth in my Open Table Reservation and got it.

Love this place
On this particular night I went to Barcode for a first date. Didn't want anything too serious, but a place that had a nice vibe and ambiance. I will say that I didn't take into account it was a Monday night therefore, the noise level was a bit higher due to Monday Night Football showing on the screens. Otherwise, the food was good (as always) and the atmosphere was perfect.
I've also attended a couple of their Sunday parties as well.

Who Knew? Great Fish Sandwich!
It pays to try something different on the menu. I asked about a light dish and the waiter recommended the fish sandwich with a salad instead of fries. It is a beautiful and significant piece of cod expertly seasoned and prepared; well worth the $12 tab. The greens were fresh and lightly dressed. The service is consistently good or better and it was so last week. I asked for a booth in my reservation and got one. All in all, a great business lunch.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is amazing.
I've been several times to Barcode. While you tend to wait quite a while to give your order, then have it delivered as well, it's worth the wait for the price. I have had everything from the pizzas to sandwiches to ordering several appetizers (the tuna civeche is really great), and there has been NOTHING I didn't like. The chefs are to be commended.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent meal! Calamari was uniquely made, flavorful and prepared to perfection! Lamb dish was mouth watering to the very last bite!!! Try them...loved them! The service was outstanding also!!! I definitely and will be spreading the word! In fact, I told two friends and the next night they were there and impressed as I was! Good and enjoy an experience of fine cuisine, great service and fun!

Suprisingly Good Eats
At first look, seemed Barcode was more of a lounge and less of a restaurant, but loved the bar and the lined up flat screens and nice touch with the outdoor lounge. The menu looked good so we gave it a shot. Our server Eric knew a lot about the menu and offered some great food and drink suggestions. The specialty drinks were pretty awesome along with the grilled wings. The entrees ordered were the Filet, Grilled Halibut Sandwich and Filet tips with pasta, all very tasty and capped it off, at the suggestion of Eric, with the Nutella Pizza, which I am not a fan of Nutella but I put away a couple of slices, nicely done. I would definitely recommend and will go back for the drinks and wings, good place to go with a group.

I always have a great time when I go to barcode , love the vibe of the place.

We had a good experience.
We had a good experience. We were hoping for a little more lively scene, given it was Halloween and a Thursday, but it was actually pretty low key. The food was fine and the server was pretty attentive.

Perfect Lunchtime Spot for Work
I work in the Connecticut Ave corridor and frequent Bar Code at least a couple times a month for work-related lunches. The food is fantastic, the service is on point, and it's just the perfect place to grab a quick bite to eat with colleagues and not break the bank.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great neighborhood standard
I like to schedule meetings at BarCode. It's convenient, the food is good and the service is attentive.

Great place to be with friends.
Terrific lunch spot. Restaurant has a good vibe and you know it's a great place to meet with friends to hang out and/or watch games (ALL the games!). Our waiter/service was excellent. It's a solid restaurant and definitely a neighborhood gem.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
This restaurant is great. My only complaint is that it's a bit tight in there. The tables are all pushed together and there isn't much room to move around. That and the fact that you can't have a decent conversation without yelling is the reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. I assume the proximity of the tables contributed to the noise level. Definitely not the place to hold a business lunch but perfect for an outing with friends.
