Snowy Saturday night. We sat at the bar. Lauren did an excellent job as always. We had the snapper and duck specials. Food was outstanding. Jerry Tolve was doing his thing. He always does a great job playing to the crowd.

As per usual we enjoyed our meal with friends. Our waiter made a recommendation on a bottle of wine and it was delicious. My Salmon was cooked perfectly. The pasta special was excellent and the calamari light and tender. Of course the olive dish and cheese was a nice touch. The atmosphere is elegant and the wait staff is second to none. A most enjoyable dinner out.

I went to Bareli's to celebrate my father's birthday and it was a great experience. Chef Robb and the staff made my dad feel very special. Bareli's is top notch and will be returning very soon.

Yet another great experience at Barelis. The specials were amazing. We ordered grilled polpo and crab meat cocktail over asparagus to start. Both specials were fresh and well prepared. For entrees Filet Mignon and the Black Bass special. Both were excellent and the service was impeccable. Looking forward to dining there again. Highly recommended and 5 stars all the way.

Took my wife here for her birthday and it was amazing.
From the minute you walk in, the host is very nice and attentive to you.
The set up was very extravagant. I would recommend this restaurants for dates, business meetings, birthdays, and etc. The food was delicious and the waiters were also very attentive.
The staff sang happy b-day and brought her a cake. The night could not have ended any better.
Thanks so much! Very much deserved review.

Another fine dining experience at Bareli's. Always order at least one thing from the special's menu as there is always a new level of creativity to enjoy. Our party of four enjoyed an array of meat, pasta and seafood. Below is the only picture because everyone started on their plates too quickly to catch. The Grilled Pork Chop with Hot and Sweet Peppers in Vinegar sauce was as impressive visually as it was tasty. The bar was especially happening with expert bar tenders and great live entertainment. Leave yourself time to enjoy the atmosphere after finishing your meal. A great time for all!

Food was very good. Table moved every time a truck crossed in front of the building. Waiter kept highlighting everything that was extra $, clearly we must have not been wealthy enough for their taste. Saddest part is that we did spend a large sum (cocktails, appetizers, dinner, side plates, and desserts) and were willing to have a longer dinner if it wasn't for the uncalled for highlights.
