    I had the blackened salmon. It was excellent. I also had the roasted beet salad, also excellent. Our waiter was attentive and had good recommendations. Atmosphere was quite good. Definitely a restaurant I intend to go back to.

    The hostess put us in the VERY back of the restaurant on a beautiful day. Father’s Day with my husband and son and we sat in the dark back room on the very back wall. I was very disappointed the hostess put us there on such a beautiful day and our first Father’s Day!

    Beet salad was wonderful, as was rockfish and lamb bolognese. Real highlight though was the beignets and friendly service. Nice outdoor seating in heart of busy Bethesda. Parking can be a challenge.

    This was our first time at Barrel & Crow and we will probably go back. Service was excellent, attentive and very informative when we asked questions about the menu. My wife had the pork chop and grits and thought that the grits and the sauce were the best part. The pork chop could have used a little more taste. I had the ravioli with veggies. The veggies were the best part with the ravioli needed a bit more taste to have it blend better with the veggie topic. The beer and wine selection was excellent and we enjoyed our choices. Once caution: We were there at 8 on a Sunday and heard the bartender tell a patron that the kitchen was closed. It usually closed early on Sundays. Usually between 9 and 9:30. It was 8:40 when I checked the time a few minutes later.

    Our lunch at Barrel and Crow was delicious. We all had the shrimp and grits. For dessert we ordered the strawberry shortcake ---- divine. The service couldn't have been better. We were seated in the far back room and had some fun with the other diners there! To sum the experience up ----- perfect!!!

    Our first time here. Bethesda continues to change. It was both of our young adults’ birthdays but we did not publicize this. Service was outstanding! Happy our server had a helper who was also great. Our server was very knowledgeable and really connected. Excellent. Food was really good. We will certainly return. So great to try a new option.

    On a Sunday night, it wasn't too busy, so not too loud. The food and drinks were very tasty and nicely presented. I chose three appetizers instead of a starter and an entree, and all were enjoyable - tuna taquitos, gnocchi, and calamari. Spouse enjoyed gnocchi and rockfish. The service was a bit too attentive. Three friendly servers took turns popping up at our table, apparently without coordinating with each other. At first it was just amusing, but at one point, as a server apologized for interrupting, I was in mid-sentence and completely lost my train of thought. We'll come back, but next time I will hold off the check-in while I finish my sentence!

    The food is creative , the service is top notch and the Local Beer and Bourbon selection are the bomb .. that’s why I keep coming back . The Rockfish was yummy , but the blueberry balsamic on the duck was even better. We loved them both and the strawberry lemon curd dessert thing was a piece of art !

    This restaurant was absolutely amazing. From the food and drinks to the service. The owner, stopped by our table and spent an extensive amount of time explaining all of the different bourbons to us. They have 48 bourbons 😬. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Small business and women owned👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 very impressed. Will be back soon to try other items on the menu!

    The menu here is good. They combine several staples with dishes that they change up to take advantage of the ingredients that are in season (seafood, veggies, etc.). One thing I really like about the entrees is that they intregrate veggies with the protein and sauce. I have never had a dish here that I didn't like.
