Not going back. Nothing redeeming. Food: Meh, The line, even with a reservation, bad. Good bye, Barcha!

Food is always solid there. It's a zoo at lunch during the week. Staff seems overwhelmed always, so I prefer dinner there. Also, it's oppressively loud there when full.

Great food, great service. It is loud at lunchtime and the tables are very close together. Great spot, but a bit loud.

Booked a res at Barcha due to high ratings and being able to reunite with a dear friend I haven't seen in a while. We had lots to catch up. Barcha's happy hour and ambience outside under heat lamps was a perfect setting. The happy hour menu was delicious, well-valued and the service was on point. We will be coming back.

The food was excellent - I had a toasted orzo salad for lunch with lamb shwarma. This was the best Mediterranean salad I've ever had in San Francisco. The staffs were friendly and accommodated our last minute request to add one more person to the reservation. We were seated outside, so it was quite busy/noisy, but that was not a deal breaker. I would definitely return.

Barcha is a stylish restaurant with delicious Mediterranean-inspired food. Loved the octopus! However. The tables are very crowded and the restaurant is quite noisy. The night we visited, there was a private party as well, which didn’t help noise-wise. Not a great place for conversation. Solid choice food-wise, but maybe not for a date.

My first trip to Barcha for date night was so amazing, I was back 10 days later for a business meeting. Can't rave enough about the magic of this place. Food and ambiance are both so "yummy," and the team is extraordinary. Our waitperson, Courtney, described one cocktail, then shared: "it will transport you to Zanzibar." Barcha is an experience at every turn and transported me to a huge fan. Bravo!

Yum. For Mid-east Mediterranean fusion, Barcha rocks it. Every aspect of the experience has been thoughtfully prepared to entice and please. Everyone should go at least once; no, more than once.

Concept is good but outside was too cold even with the heaters as they only help the tables just below the heaters so other outside tables freezing. Food was simple but tasty. Service outside was slow as seemed focused inside. 25 minutes just to get the drinks and 15 minutes more before food came and simple salads and sandwiches.

Not much vegan or veg options. The menu was different for dinner than what is listed in the website. I would not recommend this place for people who would prefer vegan or veg options.
