    The food and wine are always excellent, and we had a great time even though some of our tapas took a while to come out because they had a big party they were dealing with. Will definitely be back. Thanks to Caitlin our server and Kyle the GM who recommended a great bottle of wine.

    There continues to be a problem with the bar. Early reservation, very few tables; a fifteen minute wait for initial order of cocktails. There was a weird flashing of the overhead lights every three to five minutes. We were told it would be fixed tomorrow. Food was good as always. Wait staff was friendly but just dropped off food at the table without even stating what it was… Hope they get things together soon…

    Enjoyed most everything about our experience! Service was great! Food was a bit disappointing. We were sat at the very corner of the patio and it wasn’t the most comfortable arrangement. Overall, I’d be willing to give it another try!

    Bacari never disappoints. We were huge fans of the West Adams location but have moved this summer and it’s no longer convenient to get there. We were thrilled to discover this location in PDR, near our new home. Wow, our weekly go-to place on the beach! The staff is wonderful and the food is world class. We love Bacari!

    GREAT service! Everyone was friendly, warm, and efficient. Food was delicious and we all had a lovely time. I especially appreciated the vegan options and how good they were. Highlights for me: kale salad, vegan pizza, brussels sprouts, mushroom tacos. House red wine was good.

    The food was good but the service could have been much better. Our waitress disappeared after we placed part of our order. I am assuming her shift ended but seems like we were forgotten for some time.

    Took my college freshman and her friends- very nice! Friendly - Accommodated an extra person which was very nice. The food was good but the mac & cheese took considerably longer to come out. But the service was really polite and kind and it was nice to be outside I would’ve like to see what the inside was like

    Food and service were excellent. The lights dimming, then brightening, then blinking off and on was awful. Really ruined the mood. Then got home and two of three of us had stomach issues. Not sure what caused it, but I must say between those two issues, it will be awhile before I return. That makes me kind of sad because I usually LOVE everything about this place.

    Absolut zwangloses, lässiges Lokal mit großer Außenterrasse, teilweise überdacht. In Strandnähe und so sind auch das Flair und die Gäste. Größtenteils junge Leute aller Herren Länder. Ein Abbild von Amerika, wie es sein sollte. Es gibt reichlich viele kleine Gerichte, die man sich zu zweit teilen kann. Natürlich viele Cocktails auf der Karte plus ein paar wenige Weine, aber das reicht für einen lebhaften Abend umgeben von fröhlichen Menschen. Service aufmerksam und mit Freude bei der Sache. Toller Ort um nach Sonnenuntergang kalifornische Lebensart zu spüren.
