If you're looking for small size plates to get a flavor of different dishes, this is the place for you. My favorite is the cauliflower and the baccari fries. Their cocktails are yummy as well. My favorite is Kentucky Pink.

Always love coming here - the staff is so friendly and the food is always fresh and delicious. The new outdoor seating (due to the pandemic) is awesome, they have such a nice ambiance.

We love this restaurant. We want to try the new one in Silver Lake, which is where we live. Obviously, it's pretty busy place. So, for now, we will continue to frequent the GLD location.

We have already brought several friends to join us.

I’ve been to Bacari several times, but this last time the service was unbelievably slow and inattentive. The tapas style plates typically come out pretty quickly and consistently one after another, but there were literally 20+ minute spans between our plates with the waiter checking in on us only when he brought said plates. It was probably just a fluke night, but the service quality was just noticeably lacking last night.

Food was all really good - we requested to sit outside - lots of people walking by. Next time might request to sit inside so it's a little quieter. But it just depends on what you are looking for. Food was great and came out quickly.

Came her for the first time on 4th of July. Had a wonderful outdoor seat with great access to the Fireworks. Each dish was delicious and prices are extremely reasonable. Loved the chicken, pork belly and the Pizzas. We will definitely come back.

Unfortunately, our server wasn't the greatest. He never checked in and it felt like we had to flag him down, but when we did he was audibly frustrated and would make faces, including rolling his eyes. It was irritating to feel like we couldn't ask for the things we needed.

Besides the poor service the food was subpar. I would say the pork belly and cauliflower was good, but the pizza definitely wasn't good, the steak was bland and the beet salad was mediocre.

The food was very good. It was our first time and we enjoyed all the dishes. The desert was great but it took a very long time to prepare. The server should have let us know we would have to wait an extra 20 minutes.

We enjoyed our time with good food and drinks. The service was excellent. The bacon wrapped dates were our favorites, but all the dishes we ordered were very tasty and enough for us to enjoy. The drinks were very good too! We plan to return and bring more guests with us again.

This was my first time dining at a Bacari restaurant, and I would definitely go back. The staff is friendly and suggested some great dishes to try. We enjoyed everything we ordered. The vibe is nice casual. The food is delicious with a few unexpected flavors, very accessible and interesting. The perfect antidote to months of eating at home.

Had reservation at 8:15 for outside, get there at 8:10. The host asks if inside is ok, I informed him that we would like outside. He asks us to wait, 8:30 now he calls us and says your table is ready inside in the back. I again ask for outside, he ask to wait again. 8:50 now and still no table, we just turn around and leave. Also the seating outside is terrible, right on the sidewalk with too much noise, we went around the corner to a different restaurant where they seated us in 20 min with no reservation.

I enjoyed my dinner there with my friend! We went on a Monday night, sat outside in their sidewalk covered patio area, and it was very busy. The food was very good, its all tapas, so we got a bunch of different things and shared them! I feel like it is a tish overpriced, especially to sit outside in a sidewalk tent, but I can understand that because we are still in the pandemic.... Overall I really enjoyed it and I would go back!
