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

I made a reservation for four for my husband’s birthday. Unfortunately, his flight from Boston was delayed and he arrive after the other three of us finished our meal. The staff was extremely accommodating to his late arrival and enables him to at least enjoy birthday cake. There was no effort to rush us out or limit our time at the table, which some restaurants are doing in order to enhance their seating capacity during the pandemic. Overall it was very nice experience. PS. I had the scallops and they were perfectly cooked.

The food and service at Barelis is second to none. The oysters are always fresh. We tend to stick to the Pork chop and the Dover Sole which are excellent.

The restaurant is easily accessible from Manhattan via the Lincoln Tunnel. The room is beautiful and the waitstaff are all professional, experienced adults. The chef is a culinary genius/artist. Menu is extensive there’s something for every appetite. We’ve been here a number of times and we’ve always been very pleased. (If the restaurant were in Manhattan, it would be impossible to get a table. That’s how great it is.) Favorite dishes include crab and asparagus appetizer; seafood salad appetizer; shrimp fra diavolo; and the (World’s Greatest) pork chop. Really—don’t miss the pork chop.

I usually eat here for lunch but have been by for dinner recently. NJ is still at 35% dining capacity at the time of this writing, so I would say it was "active" but not too busy. We were seated in a side room next to a working fireplace on a raw March night - no complaints there!

Mixed green salad with gorgonzola was just right. We had the halibut special which was perfectly cooked and the grilled zucchini side was off the charts. Finished with ricotta cheese cake and a cappucino. Service was very attentive.

Best meal I've had since the pandemic hit!

This was our first time dining here, as we live out of town. The menu wasn't huge, but there was plenty of variety to suit any taste. We found the prices a little high, but the food was very tasty, and the portions well-sized. Service was very good.

I realize there are many challenges with restaurants theses days. But, the service was painfully slow. If not for the pandemic I would’ve complained. I had to Scottish salmon, it was terribly overcooked. However, the side of sautéed spinach was very good that was the person of prey and the carrots.

Hope there are better times coming.

This place is amazing. Great for casual, business, dating or even fun time with the ladies or gentlemen. Live entertainment on Wednesday and Saturday. Excellent wine selection, food and service was very good. Both indoor and outdoor dining was comfortable regardless of weather. Overall I haven't had a bad experience yet.
