They have done a good job adapting to Covid-19 conditions. Tables well spaced, servers adequately protected.

We went for brunch and everything looked good on the menu. I enjoyed the avocado toast. I want to go back and try something new next weekend!

This place is our kitchen away from home. We love that they've made it go right to stay open during the pandemic. I personally am tired of cooking three times a day and REALLY enjoyed the night out eating foods I don't make at home. Eduardo is an exceptional host, by the way. Treats us like family!

Evening started off great - they temperature checked, made us sanitize our hands before showing us to our tables which were 6feet apart. We tried the dine LA menu which was great! Drink we’re also really good. Overall great experience

Bacari is my go-to girls night, date night, birthday celebration dinner spot. Always great & quick service, incredible food, yummy drinks, reasonable prices and lovely ambience. I always get the petit filet mignon and sometimes have to order two because it is just THAT good! They have great happy hour specials and a 90 minute open bar deal. During Covid, I have gone to both the Glendale and the 3rd street locations and felt safe and taken care of every time. They check your temperature at the door, space out the tables outside, and sanitize the tables thoroughly. I highly recommend Bacari for your next night out!

We went for a celebratory dinner at the Glendale Americana location. Atmosphere reminded me of Europe. Small tables all along the sidewalk. Very pleasant to sit there with tons of shade from late afternoon on. Our food and drinks were excellent, with the exception of one dessert that was just too sweet and a little difficult to eat, it had ganache, cookie dough, bananas and more. Fortunately for us they had an extra bread pudding pudding with delicious ice cream that was made by mistake and given up us for free. So even though we couldn’t eat the dessert we ordered, we had already had a delicious dessert. But the rest of the food was excellent! As well as our servers!

Good vibe food was good. It was just hot outside I would recommend some misters or little fans to help with the heat. It was great otherwise.

Love the place since I live at the Americana, a little pricey for what you get, portion size wise at least, but you get what you pay for and you definitely can’t beat the atmosphere and the food taste and quality! Staff is amazingly nice and respectful as well.

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.

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.
