Great Valentine’s Day (2/15!) with friends! The special price fixe menu had a variety of entrees from which to choose - salmon and crab cakes were delicious!
We had a variety of servers through our dinner as our waiter was pulled away, maybe for a large party. Barrett’s was “hoppin” that night!

My wife and I dined at Barrett's on Wednesday evening at 6pm. We were seated immediately upon arrival and the hostess was quite receptive to my wife's request for a table away from the entrance. We shared the Buffalo calamari and both of us enjoyed it immensely. I ordered the seared tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes (that night's special) and my wife had the salmon entree. There was nothing we could be critical of. Our waitress was attentive but not overbearing. We look forward to our next visit to Barrett's!

Not Barrett’s best night. One in our party ordered rock fish special and was very clear to waiter that she was allergic to shellfish. Her dinner arrived with heaping mound of lump crab in sauce over top of fish. Plate sent back. New plate had humongous mound of mashed potatoes and small piece of fish. No apology from waiter and no discount on her bill.

We love Barrett’s but they missed the mark on this reservation. The band playing was too loud. We will avoid nights when the band is there. They ran out of the special they advertised and the replacement seafood was very salty. Dinner was disappointing. But our server was excellent and very helpful.

Responded on February 10, 2020

Tom, we are so sorry to hear about your recent visit. We were extremely busy and unfortunately sold out of our special. We appreciate your feedback on the saltiness, and we will be sure to share this with our kitchen team. Please accept our apologies, and we hope that this last visit won't keep you from returning. Have a lovely week.

My ribeye steak was over cooked.. the waiter acknowledge and offers to return it to the kitchen for a new steak .. I’m so grateful because it was one of the best steaks I've had ..the manager came out and apologize in addition the spinach was well seasoned, the best spinach I’ve had in a restaurant. To b honest the bread pudding was a BIG disappointment .. loved loved loved the kale and beet salad....

Disappointing!!!

My experience at Barrett's Grill on January 10, 2020, was a perfect storm. I arrived on time for my 12:45 p.m. reservation only to be told that I would have to wait twenty minutes for a table. When I explained that I had a reservation, the young lady at the hostess stand told me that the restaurant had a large number of reservations that afternoon. I stared at the computer screen which was right in front of me and saw that her statement was untrue. She then explained that there had been numerous walk-in customers. I asked why the restaurant accepted reservations if they were not going to be honored. Throughout the exchange, the hostess was pleasant enough. Suddenly, another woman who worked at the restaurant appeared and was extremely rude. I asked to talk with the manager, who was quite competent; he quickly identified and readied a table that had just emptied.

A server, a young man, appeared and took my order as well as the orders of two women who joined me. The server seemed distracted; I asked for sweeteners, which he forgot. I had to remind him. I ordered fries, which he forgot to bring. I had to ask the manager to check on them. (I should have tipped him in accordance with his performance. Shame on me! I tipped too much. How will he learn?)

I've dined at the restaurant on numerous occasions. This experience was an aberration of sorts. To be fair, the food there is consistently good. In spite of this positive, I doubt that I'll return at any point soon. I was extremely offended by the way that the second woman at the hostess stand talked to me.

Took friend for birthday lunch.
Seated at spot looking directly at busy (noisy) kitchen entrance exit. Asked hostess to move & although she provided another table it was accomplished in as unpleasant an attitude as possible. Asked her if she had never had a patron ask to move a table before & she said NEVER!
At late lunch there’s appeared to be 3 waitresses (could have missed one) who were very busy (bussing own tables & setting up). However, it also appeared that they were helping each other so that service was attentive with refilling drinks and such. As an aside there were also two hostesses and another man opening the door. Strange allocation of resources.
Food was good; Brussels sprout side dish recipe may have changed. Couldn’t eat it, although have ordered and liked it on
previous visits. Kind of mushy not crisp as I recalled; possibly from yesterday.
Will be back probably as it is convenient to movie theater and prices are ok. Would not pick for a special evening out.
