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!

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!!

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.

Amazing food, venue, and service! I've always loved this restaurant for dinner and LA Dine week so I decided to host my birthday brunch here and I was very impressed! I was given a prefixed menu offer which made the whole thing very smooth and they even printed out special menus with a caption of my choice. Highly recommend this restaurant for any group size or occasion.

Made my reservation for 6:30pm. Gave notice that it was a special occasion anniversary. Arrived on time. Two couples waiting ahead of us were seated on their romantically lit patio with tables to spare. The hostess then told me that i would be sitting inside in a section dimly lit with over one dozen tables and all were empty. I felt like I was being banished from the rest of society. I explained that I did make the notation of the anniversary and even after speaking with her manager I was refused a decent table with the rest of the patrons, so I told them "no thanks" and I left. I then received an email from Open Table saying that the Bacari Restaurant reported me as a "no show". Thats' really insulting and complete lie. They lied to protect their image. First and last time I would ever go there. There are too many great restaurants near by that I know for a fact do not treat guests this way.

We went for an 'Eat and Drink Week' special that West Hollywood was promoting. The food was great, the house wines were really good and the service was amazing. Beautiful job on reworking a restaurant location that had been an L.A. institution for years. We will definitely be back. Thanks to Brittany for the wonderful service.

Bacari was a nice experience. Service was friendly and attentive. Unlike some small plate restaurants, the portions were not minuscule and the food was tasty. It was very noisy however, so if you are looking for a quieter dining experience it may be a bit difficult..

Everything was great, the only down side of this place was the patio floor. It is covered with dusty little rocks and horrible to walk on on high heels. I wish they would reconsider to cover floor patio.

Everything was amazing! Shared plates so you get to try a little bit of it all. Dined on the patio and ambiance was very nice and different. Kind of forget you’re in LA. Service was spot on and I would definitely go back. That’s saying a lot because I live in Santa Monica and rarely cross the 405. Well done Bacari!!

We had to move to enjoy our anniversary dinner
Tight quarters and the table next to us was allowed to drink too much over the afternoon
Food was good but the right seating loses the ambiance
