Food was ok. they try to be super elaborated by mixing too many flavors. Keep it simple and clean, less colors, less cream.
Cocktails were fabulous and they did great job with the outdoor seating. Really nice.

I won't go again for the food, but definitely will stop by for drinks.

This was our second time dining at this restaurant. The food is simply delicious and so flavorful!
Our favorites appetizers are: the grilled octopus, the beef dumplings and the croquettes.
For entrées, we love their Shawarma sandwiches and also the Persian kabsa .
Great food and ambiance!!

Food was alright but I wish there was more options and I also wish the waiters didnt put my utensils on the table when they came by, I had to ask for new ones because they just laid it on the table as if the table was so clean. Overall the ambiance was great outdoor and I didnt have a bad time.

We ordered several appetizers (octopus, heirloom tomato salad, kofta, corn on the cob) and shared the Fedeua entrée. Everything was perfect! The food was delicious, the service was friendly and professional, and the outdoor setting was very pleasant! Barcha continues to be my favorite restaurant in the city.

Since the start of COVID, Barcha was my first outdoor dining experience. The food was amazing and wine was delicious. I recommend the octopus, the smoked salmon tarmasalata, lamb kafta,and heirloom tomato salad! The gamay noir was great value for the money! I will definitely go back

We had a lovely dinner at Barcha this week. The patio, with its rugs, heat lamps and pretty decor makes for a nice outdoor dining experience. The food was tasty - we enjoyed the hummus, octopus, and meatballs to start. For entrees we tried the lamb, duck, chicken and paella. All the entrees were perfectly prepared with good spice and flavors. The hazelnut cake was a standout. The service was attentive, with helpful wine recommendations. We'll go back.

Food and atmosphere were good.

The service was too much. I understand they had good intentions, but the wait staff interrupted our conversation 8 times to ask how everything was, if they could get us anything else or clear dishes.

If a plate is empty, my recommendation to your staff is they clear it without saying anything. No reason to interrupt for something like that. I would also recommend you only ask once how everything is tasting. We were asked four times.

We have walked by this place for over two years and always said we should try it. We finally did and were pleasantly surprised even if it was pricey - its San Francisco. We also had appetizers, wine, cocktails, and dessert so we were not holding back. The service was exceptional! We started with the Lamb and Octopus appetizers - a must! Moved on to sharing the Lamb, Shrimp Paella, Chicken, and Duck entrees - again a must! The rice pudding and baklava desserts were the perfect end of the evening. Highly recommend as the evening was truly an experience.

Excellent - nothing to fault. It was our first visit. I was concerned it would be rather cold sitting outside but I would have no worries for next time. We had a heater over our table and it looked like every table had access to a heater. Would definitely recommend. Food, service and ambiance were excellent.
