Great. Brought my baby and loved that a high chair was available and the server anticipated how the bacon should be prepared for the baby. Appreciated that.

We've been here several times before for lunch and the place has such a nice outdoor vibe, but this was our first time here for dinner. It was insanely packed for "pandemic conditions" and there is no way that indoor seating was limited to only 25%. The combined noise level from inside and outside was ridiculously loud----we could not hear ourselves, and as a result, the waiter got one of the food items wrong (which they gladly removed from our bill). we had the scallops before but this time they were overcooked and dry. the service felt a bit rushed and robotic, as if they were trying to turn the table over for the next seating. neither my wife or i felt "safe' for COVID, nor would we rush back for a dinner meal there.

Absolute amazing experience as always at Bacari! From the amazing, kind people to the bomb cocktails and good, we will definitely be coming back here often! Highly recommend the fries, Brussels sprouts, Mac and cheese, apple and brie flatbread and the donuts + bread pudding for dessert! Honestly everything is a must-have 😍

We were seated 3 buildings down in an abandoned delapadated courtyard. I made the reservation 10 days in advance and I wanted this restaurant because of its pretty garden. The food was good, but the atmosphere was dismal and ruined the experience. I invited my friends who were visiting from Berkeley. It was embarrassing and the host didn’t seem to care or even try to accommodate us.

Been here many times. The food and service is consistently excellent. The garden is an amazing oasis that transports your to a Mediterranean garden. Can't say enough good things about Bacari. Very observant about COVID-related rules and issues too. Go!

They should explain "courtyard" seating was not actually part of the restaurant, rather borrowed outdoor space around the corner out back from an empty or abandoned building next door. It was awful. Not the ambiance or experience I drove 3 hrs to have.

After waiting for an hour past our reservation time my fiancé and I were seated in a patio that resembled an alley 3 stores down from the restaurant. ( which they assured us looked exactly like the garden in the restaurant. )I informed the girl that seated us that I am pregnant. After I told her that We were seated at the high traffic area( of the out of order ) toilet at a small table. The food was not as good at the first time we went. Last, the manager that evening came to our table after we asked for her. The manager offered to remove a few items from our bill, which we explained that we felt insulted to offer a few items off of our bill. If you’re truly sorry you would take care of our $60 bill. So for their poor customer service they lost us as customers. We just wanted an apology for the terrible experience. Finally the manager got frustrated and stormed off after huffing and puffing. Extremely unacceptable experience. On a last note. Before the manager stormed off, she explained to me that “ getting seated next to the bathroom which like pregnant is like playing Russian Rolet.” That the heck does that even mean???

This is my new favorite place to go and have dinner. It’s a small plate restaurant but you can eat without being nervous of bill getting higher and higher. It was affordable and I would definitely return here in the future.

Don't eat in the courtyard. It's like eating in an abandoned dirty building in a third world country. Food is very good though. Service at the Bacari GDL was terrific, ambiance was beautiful!

I had a reservation for 7:30, they said they were cleaning off tables when we spoke with them. We waited for over 30 minutes before we got sat and another 5 before anyone came to our table with water and another 15 before our order was taken.
All other reservations were taken and seated almost instantly. Not sure why we waited so long. In addition to our wait, the reservation was for the main garden and after all the additional waiting, we didn’t even get sat in the main garden.
Our server was nice however our table was barely visited and I saw food runners not sure where the food they had went and standing around looking to see who it went to.
The food was good but nothing I’d rave over. Overall, I would go elsewhere.

Great vibe and delicious food. Size of potions is small so order plenty of food. We ordered 5 different dishes for party of 2 and were pretty satisfied. The chicken breast with risotto is amazing. I also did the $30 all you can drink beer, wine and sangria which is well worth it. The sangria is delicious. I would highly recommend this place.

I had been to bacari pre pandemic and sat in the beautiful outdoor area. When I booked this time for “courtyard” I assumed it was the same space. It was not. We were taken to a space completely separated from the restaurant that felt like a parking lot in the common area between a couple businesses. Not at all the same experience and felt misled by what courtyard meant. We got a drink and left and didn’t stay for dinner. Pretty disappointed

We were sat outside the restaurant on the sidewalk and treated like complete scum by the host. The servers were very good and the food was enjoyable. The seating on the sidewalk next to the abandoned restaurant was horrendous and when I asked the host if we could have another table when it opened he blew me off with a “sure, uh huh” and left. After breakfast at the Polo Lounge this sort of service by the host felt like a half step up from McDonalds.
