This is our favorite place to dine. Best food, quality and service. Our favorite dishes are: Asian Pear and Brie pizza, Gorgonzola Pasta, Bacon Wrapped Dates, Beet Salad, Croque Madame....I could go on and on and quote the whole menu! Everything on their menu tastes great. You can’t go wrong! Cocktails are awesome too! On top of that, their staff is so friendly! We love Bacari so much!

All tables had heaters but ours because they were running low on it and it was freezing. The reason we went there was because of the heated seating and that was absent. They didn’t even apologize or do anything to mend our experience. The food was nearly tasteless. The only good thing was the pizza and bread pudding. Our waiter looked like he didn’t want to be there and our order came out wrong and they had to remake two of the plates.

Superb service especially during Covid. All precautions made. Paperless menus and bill pay too. That was interesting that you had option to use smartphone to pay. Option was there to not hand over your credit card.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record this place is awesome every review I put I can’t say enough. The food is just absolutely delicious and constant. I live for their bread pudding and can’t wait for the next visit.

Well, There were quite a few people as usual. We had a reservation for 9 o’clock so 930 came around and we decided to go home, and then I see G running calling my name to tell us there’s a table ready, that was awesome, your staff is unbelievable.

The food is incredible! We have been coming to this place for over a year. There is not a single item in the menu that is not superb. They take such an unusual spin on even common dishes like fries or mac&cheese for kids. Otherwise it’s great fusion of American with different twists. Staff is always, consistently and relentlessly, fun, congeal, professional, kind and beyond friendly. Ambiance in the restaurant is great, although it does get crowded “cozy” and the outside works for them great as well. Highly recommend this place!

Overall good. Some Food/Drink options they have at other Bacari locations weren’t available. Other than that everything was good. They forgot to bring out one dish and added a second on the bill but other than that everything was good.

Food it good. It was a bit busy with a lot of people because it was a holiday, but usually it's pretty chill on regular days. The pizzas are a good way to fill up on food without making your wallet lighter.

Our hostess was amazing and we felt very safe. They asked us to sanitize our hands and then they took our temperatures before seating us.

The food was pretty good, but we weren’t aware all of our orders would be coming out separately (so just a heads up). Portions are a bit small, hence the tapas, so if you’re super hungry, make sure to get a few things. The tables were seated far apart which made us feel really comfortable. Overall great place, especially during COVID.

This is the first restaurant in LA I’ve been to since March!!!! Their covid 19 efforts were awesome and made me feel safe and secure to eat my meal with 3 friends. The outdoor seating was comfortable and cute, with plenty of space heaters for evening dining. Special shout to Juan and Brandon for their excellent service, and the other stuff that made our time enjoyable! And yes - it was “the best cake I’ve ever had”!!!!

Overall a nice place, most likely better for drinks than for food; some nice items on the menu, like the burrata appetizer. Not a big fan of the "no seating" policy until the whole party has arrived (it was just 2 of us, I had a reservation and there were plenty of tables available).

I Went there when they first opened and it was good. I have been there 3 times in the last month and each time have had to send back the food because it wasn't cooked properly. Last time was runny see-through eggwhites on the egg. Gross! My friend and I also had to send back Proseco because it was flat and they actually tried to tell us that the way it was supposed to be! Seriously! A sparkling wine should be sparkling, not flat!

I have two words for you. BREAD PUDDING!!!!
Omg! So I’ve written before many times how this is my favorite place. Everything is just simply delicious but the bread pudding Is worth every ounce of calorie, seriously. Try them you won’t regret it.
