Awesome South American fare!
Great flavors outside on a foggy night on the street of dreams. Can’t beat the mood. Go.
Had an absolutely delicious meal at Baru for my birthday. Cocktails are great, staff helpful in making food selections, and the flavors of our dishes were truly wonderful. Try the Chimichuri Hanger steak it was fantastic!
Delicious tapas. Love all of them! Good service and helpful staff!
Great food and cocktails! Love sitting on the balcony
We sat outside, and even though it was chilly, the nearby heater kept us comfortable. The server wore a mask the entire time and kept her distance, even when serving the food. Everything we had was absolutely delicious, with fresh ingredients and nice presentations. The specialty cocktails were really good. I'd forgotten about this cute place, but will be back soon.
Food was great, and server was awesome. Will definitely be back!
Amazing food and drinks. Great atmosphere. Lovely staff! Highly recommend.
We enjoyed the Tapas, starting with the Guacabello an avocado and mushroom treat on a small tortilla, it was a wonderful mix of flavors. The Ostras fritas were the table favorite although the Chuzos de Carne were a close second for me.
Another great meal at Baru Bistro, thank you and the entire team.
Food was absolutely delish. I suggest the cornmeal cakes with shredded beef and cheese. Fish tacos and rise and beans were also amazing as well as the tres leches.
Food was pretty good but some items were a bit salty. Sitting outside can be a little noisy. Overall, though, good experience.
Great food and attentive service, however we were seated between two full tables and were sitting very close. No social distance awareness from the hostess. This was very uncomfortable for a while until both tables left after 30 mins. Did not feel safe but lived their food.
This place never disappoints. This place has some of the best (if not THE best) food in Nola. I have not had anything here that I didn’t like, and I’ve had almost everything on the menu. Great food, great drinks, and great service. <3
Love love love Baru! The food is outstanding. I really like the relaxed ambiance combined with the high quality food. I recommend the ceviche, oysters appetizer and skirt steak. Yum!
Outside table. Great food as always.
Atmosphere was nice. Food was good. Menu was a little limited which I assume was due to Covid. Arepas were outstanding. Ceviche was very good as was the skirt steak entree
The staff was very accommodating, we were a party of 6 and wanted to sit outside. Food was delicious, and our server was attentive. Highly recommend!
Sat outside, beautiful weather, beautiful ambiance
Food and service was great.
BARU is a unique restaurant for New Orleans. They take the local food and put their Latin-Caribbean twist on it. Great place to eat this time of the year as the weather cools off. Located in Uptown NOLA on magazine street the upstairs balcony is perfect for a relaxing evening for drinks and Tapas. WE have been here at least 20 times as we live in the area and we have never had a bad meal. Or course we get the same few things but we have tried everything on the menu. Our go to are the Fried Oysters, then Skirt Steak and Shrimp anyway they do them. Cracklins are good, well everything is. We're not a favorite of Lamb but their patties a delicious. If you haven't been you need to check them out. They will get crowded now for the outside seating that the weather is cooling off but they do have some inside seating.
Delicious as always! Great service, the oysters appetizer and the pork were outstanding.
The food was excellent. Our service was quick and friendly- however, our drinks were forgotten more than once.
The food is amazing! I was a little disappointed by the lack of social distancing and my husband felt a little uncomfortable when more and more people were sat less than 4 feet away from each table.
Delicious tapas. Helpful waiters. Will go back often!
This was our first time going there. We were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the food was. We expected tasty food but everything was even better than expected.
Baru is always fun with great food and atmosphere.
Excellent cocktails as well!
Amazing as usual!!!!! We love this place!!! The jerk chicken entree is so good!
The food was just ok. The drinks were good but not spectacular. There was a piece of old salad on my fork when they brought the utensils. It was loud inside.
Excellent latin tapas! Fresh and innovative. We will go back.
Very hot upstairs so we were sweating the whole time but the food was delicious as always!
Love this place. Nice people and yummy food.
Had a great evening of tapas and drinks on the balcony. GREAT ambiance as the sun was setting.
Great place! Excellent food! Wonderful service! I will definitely be returning.
Great food and seevice
Wow this place was a surprise find. We loved it and will definitely go back. It's 5 star food without any pretension. My only complaint was that the service was slow. But goodness the food more than made up for it.
