I dine here often for dinner, but I wasn’t impressed with the brunch. Plus the service was so slow we waited almost 20 mins between each dish.

My first time here with my bf and it was okey experience not super wow or.
The food was good service was okey and the reason is we asked for heater to be turned on they didn’t turn it on and every time they passed our table it’s feels like they was in a hurry we talking about Tornado speed.

Anyhow I wasn’t impressed with how they handle the wine glasses.
The bartender getting it from the shelf and first thing she does is finger print all over the glass and didn’t polish it.
Then next thing is the server is grabbing the wine glass and obviously more fingerprint.
I asked for new glass but same process again.

So I gave up and didn’t want that tiny thing to ruin my experience.

Anyhow they have a lot of to fix for being a nice dining restaurant
1. Social distance the tables they are way too close
2. Bartenders and server stop giving fingerprints on the wine glasses.
3. Hold it from the bottom of the wine glass please!
4. The plate is broken on the edge do not ever give it to a customer we had that and I definitely wasn’t impressed.
Skeptics if I will come back honestly

I was on a really great date. We were enjoying ourselves and having a great conversation, and then all of a sudden a giant rat ran by our table. It was so disgusting. At that moment our food was delivered to our table. We told the server and he didn’t care and just said I’ll tell a manager. We were both grossed out and didn’t even want to eat. No one apologized or anything. Definitely ruined the experience.

The food and ambiance was amazing as always but the service is unparalleled. The servers are always so sweet and friendly. I even left my wallet and didn't know and the next night they called me back twice to make sure I got the message and came back! Super sweet folks and can't wait to go back.

While the service was outstanding, we were rushed out of the restaurant at the end of the night. This would have been fine except that our drinks took awhile to be delivered which set the rest of the night off, and our server was so busy he was hard to track down. He was however, amazing despite the circumstances. No complaints against him at all. It just seems the restaurant was understaffed on the floor and behind the bar. Also, we made a reservation. If you’re going to allow late reservations, you could let people finish enjoying their meal. The food and drinks were delicious, although, the seabass was overcooked and dense. The prices were as expected for what you got. It was a mixed experience.

Came for my anniversary and heard that the romantic ambiance could not be beaten by some friends who gave great reviews. While the inside is very beautiful and looks like an Italian villa, we were sat in a corner outside, away from any heat lamps and facing traffic. I had made a reservation for indoors, and so I was confused, but unfortunately, the hostess and waitress refused to move us inside after I had inquired about the mix-up. Took 30 minutes to get a simple beer, chicken came out cold, and overall felt very ignored. It's always a bummer when you have a horrible customer service experience, but especially during COVID when special outings are few and far in between and especially when celebrating an anniversary. Honestly, the whole night was spoiled, and I was truly looking forward to a wonderful experience here.

Nice restaurant and very accommodating for the COVID-19 precautions. We were seated promptly, but had to ask the waiter to turn down the loud music, since our table was right underneath a speaker blasting 80’s rock. He did with no problem. Food was very good, although our original waiter forgot to give us our desserts. A different waitress, who brought our check, had to go find them. Glad we asked because they were excellent.
Overall, a nice time.

The food was amazing like always. Make sure you call and get seated in the garden. Cause if not you’ll be sitting on the street and it doesn’t look nice at all ! Some waiter bumped into our table and spilled some stuff but the food made up for it. Make sure to get multiple things small portions packed with a lot of flavors! Don’t forget the Brussels sprouts

I have visited Bacari twice now. First, make sure your reservation are for THE GARDEN / OUTSIDE vs Al Fresco. This makes a big difference! Either way, the food is amazing! The tacos, and 'the best cake you've ever had' are unforgettable! We had amazing service and would make the hour drive out again just for those 2 plates!

We truly enjoyed our dinner here for my husband's birthday. The food was amazing! Small tapas portions so we get to order more items and were able to try several dishes at the same time. The ambiance was also very nice and romantic with soft lights that illuminate the entire surroundings. Perfect place for a date night. The service was somewhat sparse but overall, we had a great time and will definitely come back another time to dine again.

We came in a bit early so we had to wait 30+ mins which wasn’t bad. The food came in fast one after the other. The price was nothing what I expected to be; because I was expecting more.

This was my second trip to Bacari. My friend and I were pretty disappointed. Our original waiter was good and the ambiance was nice, but the experience was otherwise not all that great. We enjoyed the ceviche and the Mac and cheese, but our fish was overcooked, the cauliflower swimming in a disappointing sauce, the Brussels sprouts undercooked, and the bread pudding was not our favorite. Add to this that we were asked to move tables (not once but twice) in order to accommodate “angry” diners who wanted our table. And then when we were moved the second time, we were completely forgotten for almost an hour when all we wanted was our bill so we could leave.
