Was there for my birthday on august 11.
We loved the food and enjoy my time.
Forgot to ask our server , if they provide any complimentary dessert But that s still fine.
Will go back again.
They have put in place some great COVID precautions. I felt safe and had a great evening!
Food was great! Service was good as well. Polite and chill waiter. Definitely returning. Again, the food was delicious!
Always a good choice. The food was delicious and the staff is doing a great job of managing outdoor only dining.
Been going for over a year now. Once of the best restaurants in the area. Great food, great drinks, and excellent service.
Was rushed to order and eat because it was close to closing time. Didn’t enjoy the meal. Never coming back.
Stella made our visit absolutely delightful!!
Excellent. They have the proper protocols in place for outdoor dining (temperature check, hand sanitizer, mobile menu). The service was professional and friendly and the food tasty. It was good to go out for a meal again - one of my first in months!
I met two friends who have not seen in a year. The restaurant didn’t excellent job for Covid safety including a temperature check.
The sitting was outside in the sidewalk. The food and the service was amazing. We had five courses and a bottle of a very good wine. All including tax and 20% tip for $135. A very good deal.
the food was amazing as always just hate how the tables are on the sidewalk where others walk!
The ambience was good, can’t expect much while seating on the busy sidewalk. The food was salty and sour. The beet salad and the main dish. That’s all.
Small plates, very delicious and reasonably priced.
The food and service at the restaurant was terrific. It's a very interesting and well executed menu. I do want to note that while the restaurant did everything proper with respect to Covid-19 precautions, the many many folks walking on the sidewalk which runs right through the middle of where tables are set up for outside dining was quite worrisome because at least half the pedestrians did not wear masks, were way too close together, etc. So...the restaurant was great from the standpoint of food and service but we were quite concerned about our safety...and that is not ok. Perhaps they can revisit how to keep passing non-compliant pedestrians away from the dining area.
it was amazing! thanks!
Everything was exquisite. They gave us a two free complimentary champagne glasses which was so attentive.
Food and service were excellent. It’s tapas style, so portions are great and easily shareable. Because of covid and the outdoor dining policy, we had to sit outside. Would only recommend you take a handheld fan or go in the evening to avoid the heat (which is definitely not the restaurant’s fault). They were really nice and moved the umbrella to make sure we had shade. Would definitely go back.
Food was delicious, loved the ambiance! The idea ordering a bunch of small plates is a great one as you get to try so many different options! Would definitely come here again.
Behavior of host is unwelcoming.
We always love the food and service at Bacari GDL!!
Always good. That’s why we keep coming back.
I love Bacari GDL. The staff is so wonderful and G is quite possibly the sweetest guy ever. Food is excellent and drinks are a great co-star. Would recommend to anyone in the area or for those seeking a good place to eat.
Bacari had great food and great service. During this time of the pandemic, we felt completely safe and well cared for. They wiped the table down and sterilized it right before we sat down, they took our temperatures and gave us hand sanitizer. The servers all wore masks and gloves. Plus, the servers were kind and attentive. Especially Kyle! It was a great evening. A bright spot in a challenging time!
Great as ever - So happy that this establishment opened back up. Its a jewel in Glendale.
Great food and service. Clean and felt protected
This was our first time dining at Bacari GDL and we could not have been more pleased. All health and safety measures were exceeded. Food was superb. Staff went above and beyond. An overall excellent experience and we will be back, for sure. Thank you, Bacari, for a wonderful night out!
The service was phenomenal. The food and drinks was absolutely delicious. They did everything possible to serve us safely during the covid-19 environment. Love this place.
Food was exceptional! We tried approximately 11 different dishes for 6 of us. Sea Bass and scallops were cooked perfectly, Mac & cheese and Brussel Sprouts were delicious. Everything was delightful, even the bone marrow was surprisingly tasty. The shrimp ceviche another favorite. Looking forward to going back to Bacari GDL again to try more dishes !
Best first dining experience since quarantine! Highly recommend.
Always the BEST food! our favorite place! Great service too!
Went to Bacari for lunch on 6/11/20 after months of quarantining. I had an exceptional experience. They were very careful about complying with Covid restrictions which I appreciated (not everyone will). Our temperatures were measured, we were given hand sanitizer before coming in, and instructed to wear our masks when not at the table. The entire staff had masks and gloves on and everyone was very courteous. The food was just as good as I remember it from a year ago - excellent. Definitely a solid option for those easing into public life after months of quarantining.
This is our favorite restaurant in Glendale and so happy they are back after COVID. The service, cocktails, and food are always top rate and it was great to see them taking the sanitary precautions so seriously. I feel safe dining here and will be back!
Great first time dining out with social distancing requirements. Everything was great, service was fast and prompt, food was delicious.
Amazing service. Owner came to table personally several times. Food was amazingly unique and tasty. Great atmosphere. I have fantastic first outing to a restaurant after the stupid coronavirus shut down. Amazing service. Owner came to table personally several times. Food was amazingly unique and tasty. Great atmosphere. It was fantastic first outing to a restaurant after the stupid coronavirus shut down. I was so glad they decided to open up while other restaurant owners are still shut down in a panic. I will go back for sure
They went above and beyond to provide my fiancé and I a great experience. Great staff, great food. My favorite local spot in Glendale.
Thank you Bacari for your amazing service yummy food and thank you for accommodating such a big group.
Keep up the great job
We were looking for a quick bite before an early 7 PM appointment. However, we found this amazing place instead. We loved the creativity, execution, presentation, and flavors of all the 8 dishes we had. We wanted to keep ordering, so we could try some more dishes, but decided that we will come back soon with an empty stomach.
The cocktail list is enticing. Eventually, I will try them all. No standard cocktails. If they sound standard, then they still have a twist to them. The staff and ambiance topped it all off.
I love it when you eat at a new place, not expecting something and then leave with your mind blown, anticipating your next time there.
Had such a lovely time with my girlfriends. They were just a couple of minutes behind on our reservation and the sweet hostess brought us complementary glasses of champagne while we waited under the heat lamp. The wine and cocktail list is varied and delicious as was the food! Can’t wait to go back. Thanks Bacardi GDL! 🥂❤️
Food is AMAZING, drinks are DELICIOUS!! Everything about this place is so good! One of my fav spots! Can’t wait to come back!
