Bacari NEVER disappoints. The food, service, environment, and drinks are spectacular. The dessert is even better. If you haven't yet, you NEED to try Bacari!

In from Vegas, staff was very professional and friendly. Food was very good, especially the Brussels sprouts, fried chicken sliders and lamb chop were delicious!!

Only issue was pricing was different then menu viewed through Open Table, excepted to pay half what the bill was definitely didn’t expect to pay $1 for honey in my tea. Menu shown stated “Hot” were $9 each however the only item at $9 was one o there were $11, $12 and $16. I like planning my budget including tip, with price difference less tip was given.

Bottom line I would return!

We were really looking forward to our dinner at the Bari Adams due to the rave reviews. Unfortunately getting our food to the table was a disaster. Everything is tapa style and each dish came out 30 to 45 minutes apart. After two hours we ended up asking for our food to go and canceling the rest. We kept inquiring but no one ever stopped by to us to let us know about the delay. We couldn’t even get more drinks. We washed our first drink down and would love to have a second or third while we were waiting but we could not get our server’s attention. We got up a few times to look for her. When she did come around she was very nice but not so helpful.We were sitting inside while most people were sitting outside, we felt like we were forgotten ones. The dishes that we finally tried were tasty but not tasty enough to overlook the bad service.

The experience was good but could have been better. The pros: food was delicious, food came out quickly and the drinks were bomb. The cons: our server did not check on us often, it took forever to get the check and our seating area was dimly lit and on an incline which caused our drinks to spill. Also, the restrooms were filthy with wet toilet paper all over the floor. Overall 3.2/5

Been here a few times for brunch and dinner. It’s an adventure everytime! Love coming back to try new things! My only recommendation is that the waitress could have easily upsold me on more dishes. She would ask if everything is going well and before I could respond and ask to order something else, she was gone! A few missed easy opportunities to make more money I think!

The food was SO bad. I can’t even believe this is the same restaurant as the one in Silverlake. My Diet Coke was completely watery and so I sent it back and they came back to tell me the machine was broken, implying they knew they were serving me Diet Coke that tasted like dish water. The worst part was the pizza. They ACTUALLY served me pizza on TOAST. I’ve had the same exact pizza at Silverlake and know for a fact the pizza is not served on toast. We were appalled and can say with confidence we will never come back to this location and wish we got our money back.

It was great that they had outdoor space, but it was right off the alley and their were flies all over. Made it hard to concentrate and enjoy the truly delicious food.

This mini chain of quality, inventive small plates will immensely please everyone in your party. Each location has a charming outdoor area and friendly, welcoming vibe. The staff is professional, genial, hospitable and kind. They, it is obvious, really care whether you experience is exceptional. Highly recommended!

From the moment we sat to when we walked out every front of house member was polite and welcoming. The drinks were delicious and we were never without water- whenever one bottle was empty, another was brought without our having to ask. Our table of 4 women ordered 7 small plates and 3 desserts. Each one was devoured. Literally, every bite. And we were humored each time they offered to clear things out of the way so we could make sure we left not bite behind. Additionally we had 7 alcoholic drinks. Split evenly we were astonished at how affordable our girl’s night turned out to be! We all loved our experience and look forward to going back to try other dishes.

Drinks were certainly watered down. If it’s going to be an open bar with watered down drinks they should make that known. It’s noticeable.

Cute place with a nice outdoor dining set up. Good food. Desserts were less delicious and on the sweet side. Affordable prices. Cheap well drinks with not the best alcohol, but you get what you pay for. Better alcohol versions exist though.

Would go again for a casual night with friends or a low cost 1st date experience.

If you just want somewhere to hang out with okay food its fine. The service is amazing! I loved our server. The problem was I felt like for brunch options the portions were very small for what they were charging. Also they put us outside and they didn't have any fans so there were often flies and it was hot. I wouldn't go back for brunch, but ill probably try dinner. The service again was amazing and I really appreciated that the bartender tried his best to create whatever drink you want!

We had a good time at the West Adams location. It’s still a good date night spot in comparison to the West Hollywood location. The food was really good, the only item we didn’t care for was the lamb kebab. We barely touched it and our waitress kindly comped us for it. Samantha, our waitress, was amazing and I highly recommend her.
