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.

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.

Barcha is yummy! Their food is so good. My dining partner had never been before and was impressed. The place was very busy (holidays do that to a restaurant!) and our server got a little busy with a large party but she was pleasant, water glasses were kept filled and the food was delicious. A great gem for business lunches. Thank you!

I was super disappointed in my dining experience here. We sat in the patio to take advantage of Happy Hour pricing for drinks and some appetizers. They didn't have two of the drinks that my friend ordered, but took them 20 mins each time to tell him. He ended up waiting 45 mins to get a drink! Totally unacceptable. Then they gave us the wrong food. I have a feeling the server forgot to put a lot of our order in, b/c everything took FOREVER to come out and all we ordered was appetizers. Probably won't be going here again.

Great fast service for downtown lunch! Solid and interesting menu ... and service on the patios -- food was actually DELICIOUS! Samll Wine pours, though. Too expensive at $94 for an entree and 2 salads with additional Shrimp and the other with additional Salmon + 1 White wine and an ice tea.

Food is good but I find crazy that they won’t let you sit down until the second person on your reservation arrives...especially when the table is ready.
