I love this restaurant. I have dined there about six times over the past few years when I visit the area on business. I always take clients and they enjoy it as well. It's NJ, but feels a bit like old New York. At any time, I expect the ghost of Frank Sinatra to walk in. Contemporary, with a touch of nostaglia.

It’s been a number of years since I last enjoyed Bareli’s wonderful food and atmosphere. I had friends up here from the Caribbean and promised them a great Italian meal. Bareli’s did not disappoint. Great food and great service. I personally need to go back more frequently..

The bolognese was superb, the wine list reasonable and the service excellent. The zabaione with berries is also a great spectacle.

I had the pleasure of dining at Bareli's, for what was supposed to be lunch, but turned into an early dinner. I met Tommy and Liam as my hosts and they were terrific and most hospitable. The pork chop was better than any I've every had and the oysters were excellent! 5 star experience.

Everything was great, minus our server. My date and I ordered a bottle of wine, appetizer, 2 entrees, and desserts (all delicious). One might think this would warrant pretty good service; however, our server paid no attention to us once we got our entrees. He was more interested in the table of 6 next to us and we ended up with an empty table and empty glasses for a good 20 min. before he checked up on us. I’m not one to complain, especially in busy restaurants but this really compromised our experience.

Bareli's is now mine and my girlfriends new favorite restaurant. The food is exquisite and will leave you wanting more. I recommend the spicy black spaghetti with lobster and their veal francese. The atmosphere is perfect for a special night out and the service matched that. The food was so fresh tasting and the pasta is even made on site! The only downside was that they had a band the night I went so it was a little loud, but wasn't unbearable. I give this restaurant a 5/5 and will definitely be back!

There were too many extra tables in the dining room. The added tables were not leveled off before dinner service. Sever needed to adjust the table so it wouldn’t wobble. Due to the extra tables the noise volume was very loud and it was hard to hear across the table.

Go here for the ambiance and that "special" treatment but not for value. Meals are over priced and were honestly not very tasty or exceptional. Got a very nice and quiet table on Valentine's Day. Service was attentive and friendly. Ordered drinks and appetizer. Wanted to hold off on ordering dinner so as not to be rushed but waiter said he would take it and not put the order in. I reluctantly agreed. A short time after finishing the apps I gave the nod to the waiter to put the dinner order in and 15 seconds later our dinner showed up. Either the kitchen screwed up or the waiter never gave the instructions to the kitchen. Was disappointing. Our waiter was apologetic and did unexpectedly comp us dessert. Overall a decent experience.

Wow excellent meal and service!! This place was a great surprise..we had the crab ravioli as an app was outstanding as was the lamb meatballs app. The thing to try is their pork chop. I know I know how interesting but, this is one of the best I have had!! Brined in some sort of vinegar marinade was amazing!!

I picked Bareli's to celebrate my birthday because they have Dover Sole and it was delicious as expected. My husband said his veal dish was the best he ever had. You sit in comfortable club chairs in a relaxed atmosphere. Wonderful restaurant.

Great place near our home for a spontaneous meal that never disappoints. Great service and ambiance. We really like the music here. The retro songs always bring us back. Food is very good. I'd like a bigger variety of wines by the glass. Beer selection could be more interesting, too. Mary our server was an absolute delight. Garganelli special was one of the best pasta dishes we've ever had. One of our local favorites.
