    Loved Bacari West Adams, Ashley treated us like celebrities. Very sweet & loving personality. Food was excellent & they were very accommodating with our likes & dislikes. The bread pudding I shared was just about gone when the dish returned to me… It was my choice to celebrate my birthday & very close to my church…😇

    We visited Bacari because when we had walked past one evening to the neighboring resatuarnat, Ebaes, the owner greeted us and we promised to visit in the near future. Our visit was to honor that promise and we were not disappointed. The staff was courteous and the service was prompt. We ordered the baby gem salad, seafood lettuce cups, the scallops on a bed of corn, and a hamburger as well as a couple of cocktals and a glass of wine The basil breeze gin-based cocktail was fresh tasting and well-presented and the wine paired well with the burger and was a generous pour. The food dishes were clean and bright tasting, nicely plated and most enjoyable. The serving size just right leaving us happily sated but not too large, which we abhor because it wastes food. The restaurant was reaching capacity and becoming a little noisy just as we were leaving, but it was Saturday evening. Being an older demographic to clientele in restaurant by a good twenty years we will just come a little earlier but come again we will.

    Anna and G were amazing make sure our graduation party received the right table and service level on a busy night — we were schedule to be outside and called in we would be late and when we arrived and were cold they made room for us inside Lilly was our waitress and managed a complex order with 14 persons — kept our glasses filled and kept bringing food regularly Thank you

    Having gone here for years now, last night was the best the food and service ever was. The chef and staff were spot on. One thing that would have made the night even better, and has always seemed to be the case, is that I wish the music was not at such a high volume. The music being loud causes the patrons to talk louder and it gets pretty noisy at this smaller venue.

    The chicken sliders were good,but the chicken was too thick. The meat to breading ratio was off. Pound it thinner and save some money on food cost. Thigh would be better as well as it is not as dry. Use flat bread for the Shwarma tacos. The corn tortilla was bit dry. If you use tortillas heat it with a little oil first. The broccoli was delicious as was the pear pizza and Mac n cheese!

    Super cute little spot, loved the low lighting and ambience, the decor. The food was all fantastic I can’t find one bad thing to say about it. The drinks were also incredible. Although it is all small bites, we felt full after ordering a few things each off the menu. The quality of the food was superb. The service was also great, all the people working were very nice and attentive. It was really noisy so unsure about it being romantic on a weekend night for Valentine’s or an anniversary, but I highly recommend this place for a date night maybe on weekdays/nights, to socialize with family/friends, etc. Loved it and we will be back again!

    Went for an anniversary dinner with my boyfriend and was greeted with celebratory drinks at our table! they were so cute and special; we really loved it. We did go near dinner opening but our service was great and our server was very kind and knowledgeable (i forgot his name :(). Traveled out to this place to have dinner near the Kia Forum and i would travel out here just for Bacari Adams again :)

    Horrible service but understandable since it was overly packed. Not enough space to walk through or have a decent conversation. Too many people for such little space and can barely hear yourself. The server stopped paying attention to us once we said we weren’t getting any food, just drinks since it was overly crowded. He was rude and ignored us every time we asked for the check but didn’t hesitate to add service charge.

    Wait time was long but understandable due to the holiday pop up. Entrees are meant for sharing but are extremely small. If you’re eating with more than two people, I’d suggest ordering two of whatever plates you order. It took quite a while to get our orders in and adding more items to our order was a little difficult because our waiter was busy taking orders for the entire restaurant ; they should definitely increase their staff. Restaurant ambiance was nice for the holiday

    Every small plate was delicious. We had the beets, filet, mac & cheese, Brussel sprouts, shawarma tacos, chicken and especially delicious was the bread pudding with ice cream. The service was quick, over the top attentive, and courteous even with the whole restaurant taken over with large tables of college students at a formal event. We will definitely go back.

    First time at Bacari and the service and food were outstanding. They were accommodating to our friend who couldn’t eat gluten or dairy and did a great job of cooking their food accordingly. That was impressive! Food is reasonably priced, delicious and definitely worth coming here! We’ll be back!! Thank you for a great experience!
