I have been going to Bareli's Restaurant for years; however, my company moved to NY and is no longer as easy and convenient to go as much as we used to. Taking clients for a nice lunch/dinner is fantastic -great food and great service.

Food is outstanding! I recommend the Double cut pork chop with the hot and sweet vineger pepper sauce. They make their own pasta. Staff is professional and courteous. I definitely will go back again and again. It is a nice place to get dressed up and go out for a special occasion. They have live music Wednesday through Saturday in the bar area. They also have a beautiful private dining room downstairs for extra privacy. Did I mention the food?! 😋

Elegant restaurant with upscale food. Why go to New York when you have the great tasting
food here. Service beyond one would expect in a 5 star restaurant. My favorite

We have been to Barellis many times and have always enjoyed it. Great food and service. This time the food was good however the service was terrible. It took FOREVER for someone to come to the table to take a drink order. We only ordered 2 drinks and they took forever to come back
We ate our entire appetizer course with the big menus on our laps cause no on came over to take them and we could not flag anyone down to take them away

Worst pasta I ever had. I selected this place because of the reviews, which I frankly do not understand. 3 pasta dishes all way below average. Overcooked, oily and way expensive for what you get. The only positive is the ambiance, which is good.

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.
