Servers helpful, attentive & courteous.
Would have liked the eggplant parmigiana to be sliced thicker thought the tomato gravy was a little to acidic.

My husband and I went on a date night dinner here last night. We have been to Bareli’s many times and noticed the menu was updated since the last time we’ve been there (pre-COVID). We loved the new menu and the food was incredible if not even better than we’ve ever had. We had the fried burrata special, Cesar salad, penne grappa and Scottish salmon. Waiters are super friendly and attentive. Looking forward to going back soon!

The food and service is always excellent. Only gave a 3 for ambience because we sat outside. Inside is better. Have also eaten at their sister restaurant at the shore which also has great food. Highly recommend.

Fantastic!
One of my favorite restaurants anywhere
Gnocchi and lasagna best compared to other Italian places.
My friends also had steak and a pork chop that they loved.
Service great as well.
Give it a try if you’ve never been here.
You won’t be disappointed!

Bareli’s has always been our goto spot when in NNJ - excellent food, great service and pleasant atmosphere, BUT not on this night. Service was absolutely horrible. Two waiters were competing with each other to take order. Salads took over 20 minutes to arrive which was immediately followed by overcooked veal chop - not close to medium rare. We sent it back only to have waiter return with same plate to tell us that chef said it was medium rare then owner apologized that they should not have brought that back but then tried to convince us that is what MR is for veal. Come on man! I’m not an idiot and won’t be back. Recommendations welcome.

Overall Bareli’s is always a solid choice for a more upscale dining experience. The food and service are consistently good. The only “complaint” would be that the lighting was extremely dim to the point where everyone at the table needed to use the flashlight on their phones to read the menu. Other than that, everything was terrific. We will definitely be back!

we went there after our son graduated today and the place was fantastic. The servers were friendly and helpful and the layout was perfect , the noise level was high due to singer who we were told about in advance. We like the loudness but if not you can sit inside. The food was great albiet on the pricey side , but expect to pay more for a good atmosphere and perfect dining experience.
the mousse was out of this world
