    Barcha was outstanding overall. The restaurant is beautiful, cozy and romantic located in the financial district. The service was good but the food was amazing! The steak was cooked to perfection with beautiful flavors. The chicken skewer was tender, juicy and flavorful that mixed well with the rice. We will definitely be back.

    Bonne cuisine relevée et savoureuse. Le serveur était très sympa et avenant. Le seul petit problème c’est que le plat conseillé par une serveuse n’était plus disponible. Ils m’ont remplacé ce plat par le plus cher. Quel ne fut pas ma surprise au moment de payer. J’aurai du regarder la carte à nouveau. Néanmoins restaurent je je conseille vivement. Vincent

    This would have been a 5 star visit, but we arrived at 5:15 and no one was in the place, yet the host walks us past a slew of open tables near the front and middle of the restaurant (some 30 tables) and seated us at a table at the very back of the restaurant at a small 2 top. The ambiance at the front of the restaurant was much more inviting. Since it was our first visit, we ordered 5 interesting starters to get a representative sample the food, all of which were great. Unfortunately the table was crowded with plates because it was a 2 top. We enjoyed our food and left for our engagement and walked past all the still open tables near the front where we saw people enjoying their dishes as well. Clearly the food is great, but why seat us all the way at the back, which felt alienating? That’s not a good first impression.

    Went for more of a social gathering than a meal. Octopus, lamb skewers, hummus, peppers and few other apps. All delicious. Wine selection is decent. Service was fantastic. There are holiday decorations up in front if interested in an IG photo.

    Pita bread with hummus was excellent. Red lentil soup as well, guessing a lot of their appetizers are good. Their schwarma sandwiches were so-so though. Pretty much a loaded burger but where the burger itself has been replaced by many small pieces of schwarma-cooked meat or falafel. Meat falls out and I just didn't think pickles should be in it. Fries looked good on the plate across from me. Fast service at lunch time.

    Would have received 5 stars all the way across if the food had come piping hot, but it was just 1 step above luke-warm (Persian Kabsa - saffron rice). Very tasty though, just would have been amazing if it was served hot.

    There were a lot of holiday groups and naturally are noisy. We asked if they would accommodate us at a quieter table and they were very considerate about putting two tables together for our group of four in a quieter place. They simply advised that they did have those tables reserved for 7 PM and we were fine with that since it was barely 5:30 PM. Many places when they are so busy simply won’t go the extra mile. Thank you, Barcha!

    We came for dinner on Sat night to celebrate my husband's BD with couple of our friends. Fist of all the restaurant looks beautiful. The whole experience from start to finish has been amazing. The staff and especially our waitress, Sky, was friendly, caring and knowledge. She helped us patiently to pick the food that each of us liked the most and every dish turn to be delicious; Moroccan cigars, beef dumplings, Falafel, Barcha Spreads, Halibut, Roasted lamb and for desert an amazing Cheese cake and the baklava is a must. We had a great time and was hard for us to leave the place. We are defiantly going to come back.

    Very pleasant evening we showed up right at 5:00pm so not too many people were there, very quiet. We received our food fairly fast. The food was wonderful. My daughter got the New York State. She says it was the best she ever had. The only thing I did not like, was the cranberry juice that I got something seem to be off with it. Other than that a perfect night they also gave us a complementary rice patty plate that was very good.
