My husband and I met another couple for dinner, first meeting at the bar. Drinks were great. Bartender was a pro and knows how to make a mean martini! We were shown to our table and waited a good bit before waiter came over. The food overall was very good but the service could have been much better. Like the convenience of valet parking.

This was my first time dining at this restaurant. We were seated next to the service kitchen area (do not recommend as it was loud). Our caesar salads came well before our drink order (glass of chardonnay and a Moet rose champagne). The white wine was corked, which we sent back and the reisling that we ordered in its place was a lot better. My rose champagne was not cold (paying $25 for a glass of champagne) one would expect it to be cold.

Our entrees were good, Parpadelle special with Lobster Fra Diavolo and Chicken Milanese. Molten Chocolate cake to split for dessert with vanilla ice cream. The cake was not bad, but the ice cream was so sweet you could not taste the vanilla.

Overall not a bad experience, however for a restaurant of this price range I would expect that the service would be better (know how to smell the wine prior to bringing the glass to ensure that it is not corked) and to make sure the champagne was at least cold.

The best thing of the evening was their live music.

We really appreciate the detail to great ingredients at Bareli's. Such a delicious restaurant. Best seafood and steaks anywhere in New Jersey. Food is creative and top notch. Great wine list and very well priced. I think for the quality of food and service Bareli's is a value. We will come more often since it's close to where we reside. It's nice to have a restaurant nearby where you can have a quality meal, an excellent glass of wine and a memorable evening. The staff is exceptional, friendly and they make you feel at home. Classic and timeless, Bareli's is becoming one of our favorites.

We started with a dozen oysters. The oysters at Barelis never have that sandy taste. The black Sea bass was outstanding.

Took my girlfriend here for our anniversary. Everything was great. I had the NY Strip which was cooked perfectly and she had the lasagna. Portions were perfect. When I booked through opentable I checked off that it was for an anniversary, the great people at Bareli's came out with a small dessert and candle and wished us a Happy Anniversary. I thought that was a great touch and careful attention to detail. Will certainly return and recommend to others.

We had a lovely meal at Bareli's. We had come to Secaucus for the Beneath the Sea Expo and found this restaurant. The food was excellent as was the service. The people at the tables near us seemed to be regulars and new the owner. It's always nice to see people return to a spot. We will come back when we are in this area again.

The host and server were very professional, courteous, friendly, accommodating and charming. This was my first time on a date but they made us feel as if we were regular VIP patrons. I've already recommended to friends and plan to visit Bareli's again.
