We brought our longtime, out-of-town friends here for dinner and sat in the outdoor patio. It was a lovely meal with tasty dishes to share, friendly staff, good music, a beautiful tree, and laid back fellow diners at other tables--all creating a nice vibe for an enjoyable meal.

I had a wonderful experience from the moment we booked the reservation all the way to the end. Alex was always in contact to make sure they were prepare to give us good service. They were easy to talk to and they provide great options for a pre-set menu. They went out of their way to print menus that said Happy Birthday Vania! I thought it was super sweet and caring. The food also was great the avocado toast soo delicious!!! Everything was perfect! I highly recommend it!! Venue, service, food on point!

Interesting experience. For a middle-of-nowhere USA experience, it was fine. For LA, it was unacceptable. We had 830 reservations. We arrived at 825 and had to wait until about 900 to get seated. They did give us two glasses of bubbles on the house, so OK, I will deal. We then order our wine and food. We begin eating and drinking, and then in mid conversation, the hostess comes over and asks us to move tables. They wanted to accommodate a 7top, and needed us to move tables. They said we would be “greatly compensated.” Cool. Quid pro quo. They ended up giving us two tacos and a desert (but an extra desert after we ordered one....and we didn’t need or want two deserts). After we switched tables, our server went on break and we got another server who asked us, “do we need anything else?” We had not even received our filet mignon after an hour and a half. I told her and she said, “I mean, do you still even want it?” I said, “yes, I have wanted it for an hour and a half.” She acted as if I was crazy for still wanting it. Overall, the food was good (not great). The atmosphere is really good for a date. The service/experience was just unacceptable for a restaurant in LA. I won’t go back....and that’s unfortunate because I liked the ambiance.

Good food, nice staff. Music wayyyyyy too loud, especially for the amount of patrons present at the time. We told the staff and it seems like they heard us the second time around (made same request to different staff member). ...but by then, we were nearly finished with our meal. The music selection was great but I cannot stand when we need to scream over music to hear one another. Was a bit of a buzzkill and wish they made an effort the first time we requested it. On a different note, charging $3 extra for gluten-free pie crust is ‘fair’ (though $2 is reasonable and what I often see) but charging $3 extra for a gluten-free hamburger bun (which is just half a bun) on a $10 hamburger seems highly excessive. $1.50 is what that should be. Why people with food allergies need to be gouged like this is still beyond me. Food was pretty good, a bit on cheesy side, as in too much cheese in their cheese-based dishes (very rich). Some of the staff was really wonderful and friendly and overly-accommodating. Atmosphere is lovely, visually-speaking.

Had an early dinner reservation at around 6pm, was seated right away at a table for 4 in the courtyard. Was a lovely warm evening, the patio was lovely. Service was attentive without feeling rushed. Plates were small (as advertised) but delectable! Pizza was four pieces. For four of us we ordered maybe 10-12 plates and couple bottles of wine. By the time we left the place was packed with groups having fun. The noise wasn’t oppressive since we were outside. I would definitely return if I was in the area and the weather was nice.

Loved it! Only downfall was I didn’t realize it was tapas style so it was a little pricey for small portions, but the service, the food itself, the aesthetic, everything was amazing. Would recommend to everybody who visits LA looking for a cool, back porch patio dinner.

Despite having a reservation, had to wait ~30 minutes to be seated. While I understand that it is tapas style, portions are very small. Service took way too long.

Beautiful dining experience. One of my favorite outdoor dining areas! It has a very magical feel to it. I loved that the tables outside were surrounded by small rocks, it felt like we were in a magical sort of patio out of a Disney fairy tale. A beautiful spot for a romantic date or a night out, surrounded by trees and string lights.
I also loved the food, especially the fries that come with an egg on top! Delicious sangria's as well.
All in all, an absolutely wonderful and beautiful night! I was very pleased.

The best thing about this restaurant is that the dishes are relatively cheap, which means that we can order different types of food and taste them instead of spending $50 on one dish. The lighting looks romantic and they have a variety of food and wine choice. Most of the food are also gluten free. The only thing was that some dish take too long so we had to wait quite a bit.

I've been to Bacari a few times now and it never disappoints. The location and entry are very interesting and set the vibe of the evening. This last visit was on a busy Saturday night, this place is definitely getting more popular - in a good way. We waited just 20 mins after our reservation time, which was understandable since there were a lot of big parties getting up.
the host was awesome, he checked in with us during the wait and made sure we were taken care of.
Looking forward to going back.

The food and service at Bacari are wonderful. The good news and the bad news is that Bacari is doing so well here in our neighborhood, that the restaurant is quite full on Saturdays and the noise level is so high it can be difficult to converse with anyone besides who's sitting right next to you! But we had a great time bringing a group of 8 including 6 out-of-town guests. Everyone loved their meals and the service was great.

Food is tapas share plate style. Was unknowingly there during happy hr which was great - $2 off all plates and house wines. Food was tasty and filling even given the small sizes. Truffle Mac and cheese and lamb and eggplant were highlights. Ambience was cool and patio would be super nice on a warm evening.
