Food was good, value acceptable.
Staff was poor, as the waiter were sooo distracted (I had to order the wine menu four times before receiving it...).
And be aware the staff are not wearing masks (I'd encourage Management to reconsider this practice, at least for the time being).

I had the Waldorf salad with shrimp yesterday for my first course. The lamb chops were my main course and they were excellent. The staff are wonderful as well.😊

I haven't been able to make it to Barelis for a while. We stopped in for lunch and they didn't miss a beat. The food and service was as good as I remember. They have some new faces. They are always accommodating.

Food was excellent. Very fresh,seasoned and cooked to perfection. Portions are fine. The only complaint is the desserts. Desserts are very over priced for the ridiculously small portions. Overall a very good place to eat, just stay away from the dessert menu.

The food the music the cocktails all fantastic the service was good but being in the tent I understand it felt slightly understaffed.
At the end of the day one of the best I’ve been to in a very long time. Would go back in a heart beat. Wish the tent was decorated even more.
The food tasted authentically Italian it was unbelievable and I’ve been to many Italian restaurants. The cocktails were right on. And the music really makes you feel like you’re in a different era. Thank you to the staff that were working, cause I know of many restaurants suffering due to staffing. Thank you again for a memorable evening for my husband‘s birthday. See you all soon.

I really enjoyed my time here and plan to visit again soon. The food was incredible and Cesar gave us amazing service, giving us privacy but also being very attentive and helping us often. They also gave us a beautiful suprise with our desert for our anniversary. It really added to our night and am thankful for that gesture.

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!
