I love the Barrio lunch special! Its always amazing and the service is fast.
Service was very slow. Granted, they were busy, but our items came out sporadically and with many minutes in between. It didn’t feel like a satisfying experience with the missed timing and long waits. I’m not impatient, but this was just “off” for us.
Loved it! The specific table I requested was ready and waiting for us 45 minutes early from our reservation time. Service was great. Food was delicious as always and our server was very courteous and friendly!
We love Barrio!
Great gluten free option. Margaritas were fabulous. Loved the atmosphere.
Delicious food and great courteous service! Really enjoyed the atmosphere!
Great playlist! Plates are shareable and tasty.
First time there and I really liked it. Fair prices.
Our food came out cold
Great food and drinks as always. Fun atmosphere. Our server was just not super friendly and forgot part of our order.
All the servers are amazing and great food! The food comes out when it's done so I reccomend ordering things to share!
Barrio on Nicollet Mall is a good place for happy hour. Their regular margaritas are pretty good and the rest of the menu is tasty. We had the carnitas tacos, which were filled to bursting. Wife had the elote, which she liked. We had a premium margarita along with dessert. The tres leche cake was huge and a nice finish to the spiciness.
Bad service, our dinner came before our apps, dinner for everyone came out at all different times, we needed more chips to eat our Salsa that we payed $4 for the salsa with a small thing of chips, we had to pay $1 for more chips and it took 20 minutes to get them and by the time we left. Waitress and food runners were only nice to us when we were leaving and got handed our checks since they knew it was tip time. Not to mention it was so hot and uncomfortable in the restaurant. Don’t think I will be coming back!
Awesome experience. Went for the $10 lunch special. Our waitress was super efficient and we had our chips and salsa in under 5 minutes and tacos in under 10.
We asked for some modifications to our meal, which there were no issues with and our waitress double checked to make sure our order came out correctly.
Overall, the value of the lunch special is great and our service was on point!
Barrio is always pleasant, always delicious. Our server, Tatianna, was outstanding.
Great food and service.
Josh was outstanding ... we were in a rush to get to a show. He made awesome recommendations and was attentive and expeditious.
Lively little place for tapas. We particularly enjoyed the snapper ceviche, the albondigas, and the fried yucca. Drinks were great, too!
a group of 7 went there for lunch. food was delivered at 5 separate times. 2 came, then 1, then 2, then 1 then 1/2 of mine and five minutes the other 1/2 came. there were 4-10 minutes between when each person received their food. 3 people were done before 2 of us received our meal. Then everyone was done before I received 1/2 of my meal. We had our bills before the other 1/2 of my meal arrived. Awful coordination of getting food to our table all at the same time. Will never go there again.
Great except I was bummed they took the chicken tinga salad off the menu. It was my favorite!
Service was incredibly slow and random; we got our drinks in sequences and the corn chowder ordered first came out last. Tables were way too close together. That being said, the food was good.
Best place downtown
Great atmosphere, great service and fantastic guacamole! Margaritas to die for!
Barrio has a comfortable, but lively outdoor setting area in the heart of downtown Minneapolis. Service was good, included recommendations on the menu. We enjoyed a yummy lunch and a celebratory cocktail, with a toast to Dad on Father’s Day. We’ll be back.
We are glad you liked it, looking forward to your next visit!
This was a tough lunch visit! Our server was... well... lethargic? And I understand that often in a "small plates" environment that food comes out at different times, but it was over 65 minutes from the time that the first guest at the table received their food and then I did (there were only three of us). We arrived for lunch at around 1pm. The restaurant was busy but not packed by any means. We ordered guacamole as soon as we sat down and it finally came as we were paying the tab (over 1.5 hours later). Our server kept saying the entire meal "Your guac is on it's way out!" each time she passed the table and then said about an hour after we'd ordered "when the guac comes, it's on me!" Again... we were paying the tab and headed out the door when it arrive AND we were still charged for it. The Barrio Margarita was yummy. The chicken quesadilla was relatively flavorless. I would love to tell you about the guac but all I can say is all the other tables that had it seemed to enjoy it.
Best guacamole I’ve ever had! Loved the ahi tuna taco as well!
Great food, drinks, and atmosphere!
Service was extremely slow. We were a group of 8 and everybody got their food at different times. Very small plates, very over price. The table was by the kitchen and it was super hot. We are no going back
We had a reservation before a show at Orpheum. The patio was full but we sat inside. Service was fast.food was delicious.
Thank you for coming to visit, hope to see you before your next show!
Had an excellent lunch al fresco before a show at the Orpheum. Great margaritas and service!
Glad you enjoyed it, thank you for coming in!
Before a show
First warm day and we had a table next to the open windows - perfect!
Amazing everything, food, service, doesnt disappoint. We've been going here for years and every time we get 5 star service, food, ambiance.
Really fine palate of flavors.
Casual client dinner. Everyone friendly and seemed genuinely happy to see us. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable about the tequila-impressive. She guided us to a flight we enjoyed and had never tried before. The food was fresh and very good. We shared plates, having the mushroom empanadas YUM, guacamole was fantastic as well as the Ceviche & beef tenderloin skewers. I highly recommend this place.
The food was great and the service was excellent. Also the bartender mixed an awesome cocktail. It was a wonderful experience
Great food. Great service. Nice room - narrow but high ceilings make it unique and cozy. Highly recommend.
We visited Barrio for our wedding anniversary. They had reserved a table for us upstairs overlooking the dining room and bar. The restaurant is beautiful, dimly lit but warm. Our server checked on us frequently and our food and drinks came quickly. The food was delicious and full of flavor. This is a bit pricey as plates are small, almost like tapas. Great for a special occasion!
Glad you liked it Monica! Thank you for choosing us to celebrate your wedding anniversary! Patrick
Barrio was great! The atmosphere was perfect for the night. We had an amazing waitress who helped us pick out tequila flights since we had no idea where to start. The food was to die for and we really enjoyed our evening!
Pretty quiet place being on Nicollet Mall. Food was great and in tapas style, they were filling if you had 2 of any of their selections.
