Quality service and the food is always great. I love the shareables and the all you can drink deal can’t be beat for a big group.

My second time here since covid started. Service was struggling on both visits, but to be fair I feel like everywhere I've been in the past year the service has been inferior to pre covid... So it wasn't much different here.
Food is pretty good and pricing is reasonable for tapas.
Tables on the porch are pretty nice and quiet. Tables in the tent get a little noisy.

It was my moms birthday and it’s the first birthday after my Dad passed away. The host and server made sure to make her birthday feel extra special. The flavors of the dishes were very unique and delicious. Impeccable customer service and made us feel like family. We will definitely be coming back.

I knew the portions would be small since it was tapas. But out of the 7 dishes we ordered, 4 of them missed the mark on taste. The pasta was bland and the bone marrow wasn’t tender. The Brussel sprouts and lamb stuffed eggplant were the only good things. The server (Lupe) also tried to charge us for the $16 beer that we didn’t get and then claimed it was the same price as the $7 we ended up getting. We had to pull up the menu in front of her before she would adjust the check with a manager. The meal wasn’t worth it

A wonderful spot to celebrate Valentine’s Day! So glad that we are able to once again enjoy the outdoor set-up at Bacari PDR! As always, food was delicious and service outstanding. This continues to be one of my favorite spots in LA.

Make sure you make a reservation before going to Bacari, especially during Covid. Was able to get the inside/outdoor seating which was really nice. Fully recommend the brunch menu, specifically the chilaquiles.

Got there a little after our reservation time and they still took us, thank goodness! Server was super nice and we ordered a bunch of stuff to share at the table. Great food! Drink was great, I had the strawberry fizz I believe is the name. Only thing (which is nothing big at all) were the tables were a little wobbly and we almost spilt once or twice. However, totally get covid, we are outside in what was their parking lot. So really nothing big. Love coming here! Will be back soon!

The food here is great. There’s a lot to offer for many different palettes so you really can’t go wrong. They have a full bar and a great wine selection as well. This is my second time eating here and everything I ate was honestly delicious and prepared perfectly.

Our server Dominique was very sweet and attentive. I’d love to go back and try their brunch and look forward to going back again for dinner. If you’re looking for a fun place to go with friends or even on a date this is a great place. If you get there to watch the sunset it’s even better.

We have been to Bacari PDR more than 40 times over the years. We dined on 2/5/21 and were disappointed with the lack of service (which is not the norm) and the quality of the food which was not up to its usual standards. We were advised 25 minutes after we ordered that two dishes were not available. One concern we had after dinner as we were leaving is that there was NOT social distancing and Covid protocols were not being followed in the parking lot dining area. There were about 25 to 30 people crowded at the hostess stand waiting to be seated (not socially distanced).

We really enjoy eating and drinking at Bacari. They have an awesome all you can drink special and the food is good to match it. We like coming here with our friends. It's really too bad they had to close temporarily due to the dumb LA mayor's restrictions, but hopefully they'll be open again soon so that we can come back!

They have an outside tent set up for covid outdoor dining and have a small outside deck space. The ambiance inside looks like it would be nice, so I'd probably rate better once things open fully again. The food was nice and service was typical.
