Although we dined outdoor, the tent contained the loud conversations that reverberated to point of hurting our ears. It seemed the capacity outstripped the service. Some food was delayed coming out and our server forgot to bring us utensils and water. Otherwise, food was great and our party was very satisfied. Happy to have dined at Bacari.

This would be a five star rating if not for the outrageously LOUD music during Saturday brunch. We are clearly not their brunch demographic.

When asked, our server told us dinner was softer, so we will go back for dinner.

We celebrated my husband birthday with 8 friends at his one of the favorite restaurants. Food and service were very good as usual. Thanks for your help. We had a great time and will come back soon!

Delicious tapas, good location (although currently with the parking lot also a seating area, parking is a challenge) and a good bar. Our only complaint is that the sangria is weak - it tastes like watered-down wine. Most tapas places know better - they mix in fruit juices, brandy, maybe some Grand Marnier and do it right. Having said that, Bacari PDR still gets a 4 out of 5 stars which ain't nothing to complain about. Fix your sangria, peeps, and you'll be looking at a sea of 5 stars!

A gentle reminder that guests are paying with the QR code which I find to be very convenient, that waiters should be aware of that before awkwardly following guests saying that they didn't pay. Honest mistake on the wait staff who is new, perhaps some training or method to check that the payment went through for waiters before running after guests.

Excellent food!! Excellent Service. Kinda small place. Very trendy. Super friendly people. Parking is difficult. Lot of people parked where it says no parking. I asked hostess if they tow? Got a "maybe" hard to say answer lol. I'd still go back.

I love Bacari. I usually go to 3rd St. PDR location has very similar food w a different ambiance. They have a nice outdoor tent w a water view. Food is creative and well-executed. Prices are reasonable. Service is friendly. Would definitely return.

I came here on the recommendation of a neighbor. The food was delicious but the service was very poor. It took about 30 minutes for my husband to get his drink after everyone else received their wine/cocktail. He even cancelled the order and then 10 minutes later a different waiter/runner came out the the drink. I also asked for Standard seating versus outdoor and we were placed outdoor. It was very cold and windy and the picnic tables were on a slant which meant you either felt like you were sliding down or falling backwards. I'll give it another try because the food was good but I wont' give it a third shot if the service was a poor as it was the first time.

The staff were very friendly, however they forgot about us and we waited nearly 45 minutes for our meal so be served after ordering it - and we had only ordered 3 dishes. The wait staff out of the kitchen seemed a little disorganized and they seemed to be taking dishes to random tables and not really knowing who's was who's!

It was also a really windy day so it was quite cold outside in the parking-lot dining section, so I would recommend taking a sweater or jacket!

However the food was nice, not outstanding, but nice and it had a relaxed Sunday brunch vibe.

1. Yelp emailed and said I didn’t make my reservation when I did. Credit card charge available for proof.
2. Latte was 2/3 foam.
3. There was eyelash/eyebrow hair/nose hair on my crab Benedict plate, which took over the longest to arrive. Ask for them to take it back, but they sent back a plate way too fast for them to have made a fresh order.

While I definitely miss dining indoors, the PDR patio was SO improved from the last time I was there (a few years ago on the 4th of July). We were eating on a cool, windy night and with the tent, tables and heaters up it was completely comfortable, even without a jacket. Our group was large and although there were times that food came out slowly/it wasn't communicated to use immediately when a dish was unavailable (Sea Bass!), staff were courteous and willing to do whatever they could to make up for the rush on a busy service night. I can't wait to come back again, being back out at Bacari with my (vaccinated) friends felt so good!
