The food was so so and service was okay. Pricy and not worth the money. Final bill was close to $200 with drinks and desert. Not for this level of food.

First of all, I am completely in love with Barcha and always recommend this place to friends and co-workers. This was my first time eating at Barcha where I was disappointed in the service. Although our server was friendly, she brought me the wrong salad (fattoush) after I had clearly stated I wanted the mixed green salad with some added feta. Also, I asked for a side of lamb shawarma which I have done several times in the past. Her first comment was that I could not add it to this particular salad and only the other salads (again, I have done this before and do not understand why this was a problem). She did bring me the side of shawarma however there were potatoes and other veggies mixed in which I did not ask for and have never seen when I have received a proper side of the shawarma. Again, I love this restaurant but was just disappointed yesterday.

The food was good but prices were raised drastically. $22 for the sandwich is way too much. It cost $130 for 3 of us with entree and alcoholic drink. Couldn't believe it!

I wish I remembered our server's name, because they were amazing -- VERY attentive, without being awkward or bothersome. I also LOVED the Marbella cocktail. It is now easily my favorite cocktail nearby...

It was a business lunch. I made a reservation for 12:30 pm for inside seating and when all 3 people came, our table was not ready. Since it was almost 12:45, we took the table outside. Even with heat lamps, it was freezing. Not enjoyable dining experience.

The menu at Barcha is not huge, but almost every dish is packed with diverse, unique flavors. The beef dumplings we on this visit were new to me. Highly recommend them. The service is always attentive and available. The noise level is fairly high, the only negative.

The menu has changed a bit .. I had the rice bowl for 24 bucks and there was hardly any protein in it .. seems a lot for a little shaved chicken and rice .. tasted good though .. but not enough value for money

We were seated next to a door that kept opening and closing and we were cold and got wet from the rain. The server refused to ask the hostess to help us find a new table and told us that the door rarely opens. It opened 2-3 times a minute. We wore jackets inside.

The food at Barcha is nothing to write home about. Salads and wraps are nice, but I was surprised to pay $26 for a salad bowl with one salmon skewer. Definitely not what I am used to pay for a casual lunch.

Amazing take on Mediterranean food. The New Years 4-course meal was fantastic, though expensive. It did take about 40 minutes to get our first course

A little disappointing for the price. Was looking forward to the ratatouille but New Year’s Eve menu didn’t not include it. Manti and scallops were very good and so were the desserts the coconut flan. The rest could’ve better (pasta , shakshouka, little gem salad, chocolate cake)
Can bump up the level, as the scallops and manti were exceptional.

This place is amazing, the blue print of all the new Mediterranean restaurants in the city.
We came for dinner and it was perfect, from the service to the food the experience was great.
We have tried many places but this one you can come and the menu is not stuck to Turkish or Greek food but more a travel around the Méditerranée and the many choices of this amazing part of the world.

Disappointed by the service this time around - meal took a long time even though we ordered right away and food wasn’t as good as it normally is or should be for a $30 lunch. The staff could be more friendly.

Too pricy, but still seems like people are willing to pay for what they get. It's super busy for lunch, but nice staff in general. I just can't justify paying $22 for a sandwich.

Service was fantastic, our server was Diane. We had the corner table at the back which was great because we had a birdseye view to everything. Food was fab and plentiful. The only ding was I find it outrageous to have a $2 surcharge because I had my Manhattan up. Are you kidding me?! I did share my dissatisfaction about this and to their credit they removed the charges. Seriously Barcha, that’s the kind of thing that down classes an establishment. I do look forward to coming back with my husband sometime.

Wonderful, inventive food with a Mediterenean flavor. Great appetizers. Four of us dined and we shared everything. The grilled turkish flatbread went well with everything, the chicken and manchego croquettes and the kobe beef. We also had a very good fattoush salad. It was very crowded on a Wednesday night as it is within a block of the Salesforce complex and a lot of young people come after work.

Would definitely recommend it. They also were very gracious is accommodating our friend in a wheelchair.
