Great setting. Open air garden, candlelit, great food and service. It was a busy night but the staff were attentive and friendly. Noise levels inside the restaurant were a little louder than expected.

The hostess sat me next to two parties of 6+ people on both sides of me. It became difficult to speak with my date.

How could this have been my first time at this restaurant? I can't believe that everyone in the city isn't raving about this place (or maybe they are, just not to me). It's hard to imagine a prettier setting - or better food. There was literally nothing I didn't love about the experience and I'm already looking forward to my next visit.

Love the food and the atmosphere! Only issue is the trees dropping leaflets into drinks and loud obnoxious guests, but that's not your fault. Great meal!!

Excellent on all levels! If I had to single out one aspect it would be the service -- so warm and gracious and helpful and fun! The food was brilliant as well, though. Asian Pear Salad, Beet Salad, Seared Scallops, and that crazy-a$$ cake (you'll know the one) are the menu highlights for me so far. More to discover on my next visit... which I intend to make happen soon.

Desserts were terrible, as was the service. So much food came out at once and then we sat waiting at the table for both wine and the rest of the food for over 20 minutes. Bread pudding was insanely undercooked. Food is just ok. Wine is crazy expensive. Not super pleased with our experience.

Very fun menu - and if it sounds good to you it will be! They do a great job - I've been to both the Bacari by USC and the one on 3rd and food and service is consistently really good at a terrific price -s so tip BIG!

I can not start this review in any other way but praising the OUTSTANDING service of our server PAIGE S.. Paige is such a genuinely nice and caring person who really cares about the customer to the heart. He make us feeling important and appreciated even though it was a super busy day for him. Always attentive and present when you needed him and with a natural smile coming from his good heart Paige could've got away with murder... But that was not the case since the food was also AMAZING. And just like THE Cherry in top of the cake, a few days after our visit we have received an email from Mr. DANIEL KRONFLI himself, the CEO, Partner and Co-Founder of BACARI whom took the time out of his busy schedule to thank us for our visit! Such an UNFORGETTABLE dining experience! This is our second GREAT experience at Bacari (the first time we went to the Bacari at Americana in Glendale, CA) and we just can't wait until the next time we will visit Bacari! THANK YOU Guys!!!

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.

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.

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!

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
