The food was outstanding! Beautifully presented, tasty, and the options for your meal are endless. Great spot for date night, and any celebration. Service was attentive but not intrusive. All in all our best meal in LA!

Such a beautiful place to go to dine outdoors! It was fun and felt safe and just the right amount of fancy! Service was great! Food is a bit overpriced for what it is but such a gem in the neighborhood! I would go back again for a special occasion!

I was a bit disappointed by my experience at this location. I’ve been to the 3rd street location once and I frequent the Silverlake location. Adams fell short in comparison. The food was lacking and tasted as if it sat for a while. The ambiance was cold (inside) and very loud.
I expected better. I will continue to frequent Silverlake where I can expect delicious food, a chill ambiance and great service.

They were short staffed. They kept forgetting drinks when they would order around to the table. We had to find them to re-order drinks. It took two hours for us to get her food and it never came at the same time. It was a lag time of 45 minutes between the second service. Overall the food was very good.

Food wasn’t great. Service was slow. Waited fifteen minutes just for water and had to flag a waiter to take our order. To be fair, it seemed that a server was out for the day so they were overwhelmed.

Pre game brunch. The menu was very diverse and all the food very good. I liked the small plates because you can have a variety and split dishes.

I usually love the Bacari chain; however, the experience at this location was terrible. The service was horrendous and the food took forever, despite it not even being very crowded when we were there. The waitress was very rude and every time we would ask about the status of a plate or drink, she would just tell us it’s coming. I would not come back here again.

Disappointed in the service. I had verified the drink special before I ordered (BOGO). Then after waiting a considerably long time when our meal was finished and our drinks were empty, my boyfriend went up to the bar to ask for boxes to go and remind them I should have another drink coming. A different waitress came and said even though the menus said it was BOGO night and it was verified with the earlier waitress, it was not the special and the earlier waitress was new and wrong. She refused to honor what was written on their menus and what was told to me earlier when I first ordered the drinks.

Between the long wait after we were eating and then the switch up of the deal, it became a disappointing dinner.

Other than that, the food was very good.

The food didn't come out in a timely fashion. We would get one tapa at a time to share between 2 ppl, but if you know anything about tapas, the portions are so small the food gets eaten in about 3 bites. We had to wait a good 10-15 mins before we got our next 3bites each. I never got the gnocchi I ordered and we almost didn't get the dessert we ordered. After sitting there for 2 full hours to not get all of my food and to get it so spread out, I was miserable the whole meal. I will not return to this restaurant.

Service was not as expected. It took quite some time to have someone take our order and the food for the person with me was significantly delayed. I recommend limiting the number of patrons to more effectively serve customers.

We saw this restaurant in Dine LA. We were not disappointed. Loved the atmosphere. Loved the food. Loved the drink menus and the service was impeccable. We will be returning. Our server was Hazel. She was right on professional and down to earth at the same time.

We waited for over an hour for our food to come out after ordering. The people we were dining with ended up leaving before getting their Dine LA desserts because everything took so long. Disappointing experience, especially after we had such a pleasant experience at Bacari in West LA.
