Very good restaurant for hotel. Consistent food quality and good choices overall. Dinner and Breakfast had very good options. The wait staff was very attentive at dinner, less so at breakfast.
Sunday night before MLK day and the place was dead.
The menu is somewhat limited but the food is always great. Fantastic brunch, great burgers and flat bread pizzas, and good mixed drinks.
We were looking for a place on Christmas Day. I waited too late to book our 1st choice, so was happy to find them open with reservations available. I was hoping for their regular menu, but they had a buffet. The food was good, service very good. This was our 1st visit - planning on going back for the regular menu to try their mussels and frites. They validate parking so that was a bonus.
Second year for the Thanksgiving dinner. If we're around next year, we will be back.
Great for mussels. Frites not up to Belgian standards
We would not visit again. We were served expensive, poorly prepared dishes and bland burgers. When we raised concerns with one of the dishes, we were offered a free round of drinks, but still paid for the (expensive) offending dish. Pricing is just too high for mediocre quality food, especially considering the number of other available options nearby.
The service was impeccable and would be my reason for a return visit. All servers passing the table, lent a hand in keeping the table cleared, as it was very small for 4 people with drinks & food. My soup had condensed down & was very salty and unable to eat but the manager was quick to come over to rectify the situation. They were out of the seasonal beer that one of us ordered. Again, service was great!
Delicious short rib poutine. Wonderful frites.
We've been to Baroak several times, and we're always rather underwhelmed. It's ok--just not great. We waited to be seated for a while--one server finally said "I'll get someone for you." A man who appeared to be the restaurant manager (or hotel manager?) seated us--he was very friendly and professional. The prices are high for what you get. Our server's timing was off. We waited for a long time for drinks--in fact, we received our appetizer (mussels) before our drinks. When our server brought the mussels, I think she realized that we still didn't have drinks, as she brought them shortly after. They seemed to have been sitting at the bar. She opened my husband's beer and poured it too quickly into the glass, causing foam to go everywhere, spilling down the side of the glass. He had to wait to drink it because of the excessive foam on top. We received our entrees when we were only halfway through the mussels (and we weren't eating slowly). There was barely room on the table for the plate of mussels, pot, side plates, water glasses, cocktails, and entree plates...and the entrees started getting cold as we rushed to finish the mussels. The mussels were good. The entrees were ok--nothing to write home about. Wine is marked up 300% from the prices at nearby stores.
