Bacari W. 3rd
Absolutely love this place!
This was the final meal for my 50th Birthday weekend. Everything about our experience was terrific. My out of town family members were blown away and those of us who live here will be returning often!
Not sure of her name, but the waitress with the pink hair was probably the worst server I’ve had. So looking forward to trying this restaurant and have only hear good things. My waitress that night ruined the entire experience. Belittling, made rude comments, and only seemed annoyed to answer questions. Unfortunately, that ruined the night. Food was very good and place is so cute, but I would not recommend or go back. Disappointed.
Staff very nice. Atmosphere cool , food delicious
This is one of our go to places for dinner. Never disappointed.
It took 15 minutes or so for us to be greeted and sat despite us having a reservation. Our waitress was not attentive at all. She abandoned us about halfway through our meal and we struggled to get anyone else's attention. My friend and I chose the dine LA dinner for two - shared cheese plate, choice of mains: pear we won't be returning.
Nothing was yummy and everything was either too salty or too sour. Giving us the worst table inside by the wall didn’t help as well.
Great place for a DateNight or friend meet up. Great prices and good food with a great ambiance.
This is a neighborhood favorite for us! Thrilled to see it participate in DineLa. Very busy. Lots of energy. That evening food was slow coming, not the usual case at all so I have to chalk it up to DineLa. We wound up taking our 2 last ordered items and desserts home instead of waiting. Still a favorite for us!
Great place. Food is delicious. Very knowledgeable and professional staff.
Beautiful patio, especially after lights set.
Very uneven cooking. Scallops and sauce were cool. Bread putting — no exaggeration — worst I’ve ever tasted. Fried chicken sliders were pretty good. Lamb “lefts” (I think they called it something else, had to be sent back. It was not cooked though the kitchen called it medium rare. (Sorry. It was raw in the center). Oh, and our pizza which we ordered at the onset came a 1/2 hour after the other items, despite our reminders.
Lastly this was the DineLA promotion. And the first course was three tiny one ounce (barely) squares of cheese, some salami and a half of a toasted mini baguette. The thing is they advertise this for one person. But then if you’re two people they charge you 2 x as a couple yet still serve what has to be the same size appetizer (because it couldn’t be much smaller ).
Honestly I loved the ambience of this place and would’ve made it one of my go-to spots if the restaurant hadn’t disappointed on almost every dish.
I have been here many times! I requested a table for two outside and it was not available. Understandably so but the hostess was rude about the hole situation tonight. My waitress was very kind and accommodating, and the food was great as usual! The hostess said that regulars get tables outside first, which was surprising being that I am also a regular. I
Over the top food and service!! Ask for Tyler!!
We love this space. The food was delicious and the bottomless drink options are great value.
Dinner was great and the service was even better
Server was good but food took long. I think the kitchen was backed up. We also had a reservation for 8:30 and got seated at 9:15.
Such a cute restaurant on 3rd Street! I can't believe it took me so long to discover this gem! Perfect spot for date nights. Will return to try their 90mins Open Bar! Our waitress Paige was a sweetheart.
New Year’s Eve dinner, but we live in the area and come here on the regular...It never disappoints. Casual environment, delicious food and great service...and those Brussels sprouts...
The service was absolutely terrible! Forgot my food multiple times. Had to ask for pita 4 times. Was the last one of my group to get my food. So disappointed.
The ambiance is great. Beautiful outdoor seating even in winter. The food is just ok though, nothing out of the ordinary.
I loved it!
Very salty food. Fusion Mediterranean done poorly.
Fantastic meal. Food was delicious - very innovative great variety. Service was friendly and responsive - generally impeccable. Ambiance was lively and fun. Would definitely recommend.
This place is such a gem! Phenomenal food, service, and ambiance. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Bacari is just great food and ambiance. I think this is the 6th person I have taken there who has enjoyed it. It was quiet , especially for a Sat night this last time, I think b/c weather. Service was not as available as usual but food was great as always.
Best service I’ve had in years. My picky parents from NY couldn’t stop raving. Thank you.
Delicious food, loved the pre-fix, patio was beautiful!
They accepted our reservation for 3 pm on a Saturday but the kitchen announced last call at 3:20pm, which meant we had to order everything at once instead of a few plates at a time. They ended up closing the restaurant for a private event around 3:30pm and started setting up for it as we were still finishing our meals. It was not an enjoyable experience and we wish we'd been informed they could only accommodate us for half an hour. I will not be returning to this location, the one in Glendale provides a much better service.
The plates are priced reasonably because they are smaller, but two items per person should fill the belly. If you're in a party of two, five plates total is almost more than enough. The smaller plates seem to allow for a greater explosion of flavor. No plate tries to do everything the same way an entree does. I appreciated that because of the plates I tried, not one had a flat component or a dud. The restaurant is accommodating with dietary restrictions and can omit gluten, meat and sometimes dairy. Bacari W. 3rd even has a dairy-free chocolate cake!
Everything about the evening was amazing. We all wanted more of each dish but there was so much to try and enjoy we had to pace ourselves.
The best birthday meal I’ve had in a while! I’ve realized how reasonably priced the dishes are because they are Spanish family style tapas. Already planning to go back for a date night soon! Our waiter was very helpful with my boyfriend’s allergy and everyone working was friendly and happy to be there. Can’t wait to come back!
Loved eating outdoors
Wasn't seated on time. Wasn't happy
Excellent as always. I’ve been here multiple times due to the great ambience, tasty food and great service.
Good date spot.
Go for the ambience. It’s all about the garden. The food is mediocre, service is mediocre. The garden is a cute romantic space so if you wanna go for a bottle of wine sit in the garden enjoy
When I made my reservation on Open Table, I wrote that we were celebrating a birthday. When we walked into Bacari, the host greeted my husband with a "Happy Birthday" and at the end of the meal our wonderful waiter brought out the most delicious and complimentary bread pudding ala mode with a candle!! We were so surprised: most popular and trendy restaurants seems to care less about a birthday note in the reservation or I need to remind someone once I arrive at the restaurant. We had a wonderful meal and it ended with such a wonderful dessert. It really made my husbands night! Thank you Bacari!!
A bit pricy but the food is tasty and really good
Super good service : efficient , kind and warm
Had a GREAT experience and 5/6 of our small-plate dishes were delicious. I’ll just note that I specifically told our waitress that my friend was a vegetarian, but I wanted seafood. To that, our waitress recommended the sea bass, and I asked if it could come out with the other dishes, so I wouldn’t be awkwardly eating it alone. Unfortunately, it was still the last to come out - by at least 10 minutes - so I did end up eating it after my friend’s main and our shared dishes were finished. It was also overcooked and I wouldn’t order it again. That said, everything else was divine and the ambiance can’t be beat. Sit outside if you can.
Once again this Bacari is a real treasure for the palate. Great food, great service, and great drinks. We love it!
