Barrio Cafe Gran Reserva
Dinner Service Only
We tried the Vegan tasting menu, and it was more filling than we expected (which was great). All of the dishes had great flavor and were quite unique. There happened to be a car show going on outside which was producing quite a bit of noise, so that was the only negative point of the night. Otherwise, service was fantastic and efficient, and overall we had a great time. Will definitely be back again at some point in the future!
We sat at the counter in the kitchen and had a wonderful, delicious experience!
Menu is lacking in variety. (Mole everything) Like original location and menu better. Thanks
Amazing. We dined with another couple and all had the tasting menu. Two of us had the vegan menu, two the regular. Both were phenomenal. I think I am right in saying that everything on the menu (except one dessert) is gluten free. The chef is amazing and wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
Perfect for an intimate, special occasion.
Excellent food and service.
A fantastic evening out celebrating a birthday. Our birthday guest is vegan and the menu was perfectly suited for our mixed crowd of carnivores, vegetarians, and vegan!
Although we are staying in North Scottsdale, we decided to take a Lyft to this restaurant because the chef was so highly spoken of. The restaurant doesn’t offer much seating, which makes reservations a must. We opted for the tasting menu so we could sample a few of the specialties. The food definitely has unique ingredients and that was refreshing. The food was tasty and we enjoyed each presentation. We also had the wines offered with each course, and they were wonderful. All in all, this restaurant was an “experience” that will not soon be forgotten, but we were not totally blown away.
Had an early dinner with friends after Sunday afternoon symphony performance. We were the first table of evening and restaurant doors locked until 5:00, but we enjoyed walking the interesting block on Grand Avenue while we waited. Food and drinks were excellent and innovative. They have 2 tasting menus, but the whole table needs to order them. You can still get any of the courses a la carte, but more pricey.
We had the non-vegetarian tasting menu and it was absolutely delicious. The pairings of items on each plate was surprising and wonderful. We were well taken care of and enjoyed our evening so much!
Most amazing and diverse food I’ve ever experienced!! A must go!
We ordered the tasting menu. It was outstanding! We recommend to anyone living in, or traveling to, Phoenix . We will return on our next trip!
Easily the best meal I’ve had in Phoenix in a long time. Chef’s menu is a must, flavors are bold and creative. Love the original restaurant, but they really have something special going on here. The food is elevated yet approachable. I could easily bring my biggest food snob friend or my mom. Will join a very short list of ultimate local foodie favorites!!!
Restaurant was loud with tables too close. We did tasting menu which was disappointing... heavy on salt. The mole was very peppery. Could hardly hear the waiter describing the courses. Overall, it was disappointment for the price. .
Pricey but worth it. The food and service were both outstanding. Salvana did it again! Will definitely go back!
My partner and I did the tasting menu, which was an incredible treat! We hadnt been on a date in a while, and Im so glad we decided to come here.
The mural is beautiful (and photos don't do it justice), every bite of food was superb, and the waitstaff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable.
I hope we will return to pheonix someday so that we can go back!
Simple great food and atmosphere
Absolutely delicious, creative flavors and great service....Yum!
Felt the tasting menu was way overpriced. Meatball was delicious (yes: just one meatball) and portions generally were small. Service was very accommodating but would not go out of my way to eat here.
If it is your first time you should review the menu on line first. If you do not understand it call ahead and pick an entree to order. I would not recommend the tasting menu on your first trip. The service was great and the food we had was excellent. The menu was a specialty menu that was a little pricey! Worth it thought!
Food very good as was service.
Very limited menu however.
Very small but very intimate.
Very cute and quaint place. Food was delicious and I love the ambiance and decor. Very knowledgeable waiter and staff.
We had our Office Holiday Party here and we had a great time. The food was wonderful. service was great. Everyone loved the restaurant. Thank you!
Intimate, charming, authentic venue. Highly recommend the table side prepared guacamole!
Excellent, very flavorful, out of the ordinary Mexican food. Guacamole and steak are highly recommended.
The most delicious tastes found no where else in the Valley.
Very small location. Limited # of tables. Must make a reservation. But if you can get in, the good is excellent.
We went to Barrio Grande Reserva because Barrio Cafe does not take reservations. Our experience was excellent. The service was attentive without being in the way. The main dishes (ribeye steak and lamb chops) were top notch. My disappointment was that my favorite dish at Barrio Cafe is the Rellenos en Ganada. The item is listed on Grande Reserva’s menu, but the description of the dish is that it is a vegan version of the original. So, as long as you are not craving the original Rellenos en Ganada or want the vegan version, I recommend this place. Personally, I will wait for a tableat Barrio Cafe for the dish I love.
Exquisite food and charming service!
Fantastic, we had the regular tasting menu along with the wine tasting. Excellent service, knowledge of the plates and accompanying wines. Food very good. We'll be back !
We enjoyed our meal immensely. Our server Lucas was very attentive and had helpful suggestions about the menu. The food was excellent! The best guacamole we ever had! As a vegan I was very pleased they had great vegan and vegetarian menu items! The restaurant is very small and the tables are very close.
Great food and service!!!
Absolutely the best Mexican experience ever! Highly suggest the tasting menu with wine pairings. Fabulous!
Go on a Saturday night. For the street life view (Lowriders on parade).
Awesome, as usual
Food and wait staff we’re outstanding. I highly recommend Barrio Gran Reserve. Love the tasting menu and wine pairings. Chef Salcido has done a great job of elevating her dishes and presenting them in a beautiful setting. Keep up the good work.
One of the top five restaurants in Phoenix. Barrio Gran Reserva never disappoints!
The food was great. I really loved the beet salad. The margarita had the right amount of spice. The noise level was low so that you could carry on a conversation with your friends. The service was great as well
Great atmosphere, food was delicious! We like the intimacy of it even though we were there for a company meeting.
I absolutely love coming here for the vegan tasting menu. Most vegan options at restaurants are bland. This is incredible.
I do wish that they had a vegan dessert this season that was also gluten-free. They used to have a vegan flourless cake that was to die for. But, it was still an incredible experience and I will definitely go back.
Received two different menus when seated. No formal wine list. Limited alcohol selection (ie only tequila and mezcal). First course mole enchilada of queso was overly sweet and cheese / enchiladas were cold. Second course cordero (lamb chops) were good but nothing spectacular. Third course ribeye was also ok. All three dishes had the same sides of grilled vegetables. Desert of orange and white chocolate was delicious and the highlight of the night. Wanted to love this place after waiting all summer to try it, but unfortunately not likely to go back.
