Fun spot with decent food but definitely not up to par with Bacari PDR, and watch out for those glasses of wine. Two mediocre 8 OZ pours (no the server did not ask) for a mere $21 each. Seated 20 minutes late despite a reservation. Service was slow throughout the seating, and they seemed overwhelmed. On the good side, the host did think to comp us some bubbly for our wait. We will probably give it one more try since the PDR location is one of our favorites and this one is closer to home.
The food was great it was just very busy and it took a little long to get the food
Very loud like a bar. Food was good but a bit basic. Flatbread was the best.
Great ambiance and food was good
Food and service were fantastic! A definite neighborhood gem!
Several dishes could have used a little more salt. The food was interesting and good.
Really enjoyed our brunch with a group of alums. Went during dinela and had some great dishes. Service was very good, during both the quieter time when we initially sat and throughout the meal as it got busier. Overall a great experience, will return/try their other locations too.
Great service, food, and ambiance. 10/10
I have no other option than to rate 1 star. I never even got in there. I had a reservation for 8:15 on a Wednesday. An hour and a half before my reservation I got a text saying they could not honor my reservation because of a private party. I was already on my way due to la traffic. They offered a free app I was in next time. They should have offered a free meal due to their error. Needless to say I won’t be cashing in on a free app.
I’ve heard nothing but great things about the place but this was a screw up that could have been handled better.
This place is legit! Had 6 items off the menu. 6 for 6.
the Chef deserves some awards!
Dessert was unique & yummy!
house pinot very nice
lamb eggplant wowser
fried chkn sliders... that chkn was tender as can be

the place is quaint; it got full fast, so definitely reserve
they gotta get rid of the tv... out of place... and they need some plants in the decor
service was superb
would return; would highly recommend
Small plate that can be eaten alone or shared among the group. Good 90 min open bar option at $25 for a few different alcoholic beverages. The food is unique, tasty, and likely something you cannot recreate yourself.
Food was good but building was not very accessible and restroom wasn't at all wheelchair accessible. Noise level was so high that we couldn't speak to each other at the table without having to yell over the crowd.
Such great service!! Amazing food and such a fun atmosphere. I loved dining here and will definitely be back.
My 3rd time at Bacari - I try to get there during every LA visit. Great food, great service.
The new GM (Justin) is fabulous! Been coming here for ten years and it’s still the best restaurant in LA.
Great food! Everything was well prepared and paced nicely throughout our meal. The restaurant has a fun, college town vibe (close to USC) and it was perfectly located for our Koreatown event later that evening. This place is a must-try! We will be back.
Excellent service and amazing food! Received top notch service, attention, and the food was incredible!
Creative menu and great place to share with friends. Excellent service! Will definitely return!
Had a fun time at the restaurant. Service was funny and engaging. Not a lot of room on the tables but the food was really good and the ambience was great too.
Loved this restaurant! So many great choices. Will definitely go back!
Servers were excellent. Food was delicious. It is a bit dark and hard to read the menu, but overall excellent.
Food was incredible. Noise level was nearly unbearable, despite the restaurant being only around 20% full. Service staff was very friendly. Would recommend, but some acoustical treatments may be in order..
Food was very good. Service was slow as they were short staffed but the noise level inside was too loud could not have a good conversation with screaming.
Nick and all the staff were great. Every single thing we ordered was a hit. Already made a reservation for another visit.
Amazing service and food!
Food was excellent and our waiter Alex was fantastic!! We will be back for sure. Thank you for a wonderful dinner!!
Great experience! A lot of loud college kids! Food and service was wonderful!
The Malabi desert is exceptional. Fit for foodies at great prices.
After looking at their menu online and reading other OpenTable reviews, we had super high expectations for Barcari. Unfortunately the expectations were a bit too high. All the food was at least very good and it's a really fun place. A couple things we had weren't totally excellent -- the brussel sprouts were good but needed a bit more flavor; the chicken wings were a bit too spicy. I'd actually rate these as pretty nit picky complaints, since overall the food was really good. Again, our expectations just a bit inflated.
Despite the negative remarks, we had a great time and we'd be happy to go back if we're in that neighborhood again. The thing is there are so many other great restaurants in L.A. these days that we need to try.
I would recommend this place to anyone. It has GF and V options. Fair prices go a long way.
