This small family owned and operated restaurant is a real gem. Food was excellent and service was superior. We started with char grilled octopus that was fresh and tender. The shrimp and diver scallops were cooked perfectly and the veal Milanese was very tender high quality veal. They also allow customers to bring their own wine that is not on their list for a $15 corkage fee. As big foodies and winos, we will be coming back often.
Amazing service, Excellent food that is all created for you so if you want less spice or more spice ask to see if they can customize. Very reasonable wine list. If you are on the westside give it a try...we will be going back...often.
Bacaro is our new favorite Houston restaurant. We have dined all over the world and Bacaro food is excellent. We have been 4 times now and have enjoyed every single morsel of food we have consumed.
Just the perfect place for a lovely evening out. Warm, friendly and knowledgeable service, even for our party of 2 with a very large party close by. Food was delicious and presented nicely. Excellent: caprese salad, although the basil was missing. Chicken parmigiana and pasta excellent and nice portion size. We split this entree which did add a $5 split charge. The warm salt cod and potato appetizer could have had something else added to counterbalance the saltiness. Just a bit much but still good. Cheesecake was dense and tasty. Nice wine selections and well-priced.
Judy, thank you so much for your lovely review! The Bacaro team is happy to hear you enjoyed your evening with us. We strive to provide excellent service and delicious food to all of our guests. We look forward to seeing you in again very soon!
I had high hopes for this restaurant, but they weren't met. We were warmly welcomed to the restaurant and were seated to accommodate our needs. The server was polite but not very friendly. The food was mediocre. The flounder special consisted of two small breaded filets that were weakly seasoned and way over priced for the quality. The Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti was your typical tomato sauce but nothing special. The wine list is extensive and we were offered the opportunity to taste the wines before making our selection which was very helpful. Unfortunately, if these two entrees typify the cuisine, we will not return.

Great. Big improvements with new owners.
Hi Kelly, thank you so much for your thoughtful review! The Bacaro team is happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us, we hope to see you again soon!
The octopus was stuff, but my steal and my wife's fish were good. Prices are not inexpensive.
Bean soup, veal and al fresco were excellent! The service was very good. The food is delicious and not 'fast'. We were catching up with good friends and not wanting a hurried meal. We will definitely go back.
Patio was lovely on a warm December afternoon
Decided to try this new west Memorial dining spot for a casual lunch with a friend. The space is brightened up from the previous restaurant in this location, and it has a very cozy bar area. I found the lunch menu to be very limited and disappointing. I was confused as to the brunch menu being available, but it is only offered on Sunday and is much more extensive. I would suggest that some of the items on that menu also be available at lunch, such as salads with several protein choices and a burger. My entrée was a piece of salmon plopped on a small amount of sautéed spinach. That was it- asked for some bread because I was still hungry! Maybe serving a small side salad along with this, or at least adding a colorful garnish would have made it more appealing and worth the $18 dollars, which I felt was overpriced. Also, it was my friend's birthday, and they offered nothing special. Many other restaurants offer a small complimentary dessert with a candle. This would have been a nice touch. That being said, my salmon was very tasty and cooked to my specification, and my friend enjoyed her panini. I just think there is room for improvement in the lunchtime offering. Will probably go back for dinner at some point and see if the experience is different.
Thank you so much for your review! We are sorry to hear that your visit was not up to par with our standards. I would like to clarify that our entire menu is available all day and includes delicious salads that you can add any protein that we offer, and we also have a Bacaro Burger available all day that some say is the best burger in Houston! As for the lunch menu, we wanted to add a little selection of Italian paninis and lunch entrees as an extra option. We hope to see you in again very soon!
We were greeted by Bill, one of the owners and seated by the front window. The chairs are very comfortable. We asked Bill to recommend a wine for us and he brought a wonderful Spanish Priorat red wine which we really enjoyed. Appetizers were the mushroom soup and the octopus; both were delicious. I had the scallop risotto and my wife had the surf and turf. Again, both were superb. We closed dinner with Italian cream cake, chocolate mousse cake and coffee. Wonderful! We will be returning to this great restaurant!!

Very good food and wine. Came for a work dinner with a couple coworkers and we all enjoyed the food. Just be aware it is not a full bar! Only wine and select beers.

Yes, we are beer and wine only, however, we have a lovely hand-selected wine list and we also have BYOB that allows you to bring your own wine for a $15 corkage fee! We hope to see you in again so soon.

Bacaro is a great overall experience. The service was excellent and the food was very tasteful! Dane is an awesome chef with great ideas. We recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
Service was excellent, so was the food. Neighborhood jam for sure but worth a drive to experience. Just wish they served hard liquor for pre-dinner cocktails.

We truly enjoyed the service and the food was outstanding! We will definitely be back!!
Amazing service, loved the ambiance inside, they have a nice outdoor area, and were willing to customize many of the dishes for us. The BYOB option ($15 corkage) is also nice. The owner also came over and introduced himself. We'll be back!

We’re from out of state and really enjoyed our two dinners at this restaurant. Wine friendly. We’ll be back. Scallops & shrimp were great! Special risotto was great. They prepared a veal dish that wasn’t on the menu. Special requests don’t seem to upset them at all. Owner and staff were all very friendly. We’ll be back.

Good Italian Restaurant. Good food, prices and service
Family owned and operated... you can tell they put heart and soul into their restaurant, from the greeting at the door and attention to service at the table. Poblano soup was creamy and delicious. The pappardelle Bolognese was amazing! Hearty meat sauce with a fabulous depth of flavorful spices. Perfect place to meet friends and have a conversation without having to shout yo be heard. Highly recommend

I was so excited to try out Bacaro. We had the option of lunch, dinner, and/or brunch. My party decided on the lunch menu. I decided to try their spaghetti and meatballs. Meatballs (8) were small but very tasty. Good sauce on the pasta. Others had Italian panini, salmon on spinach and soup and salad. All felt the foods were good portion and very flavorful. I definite return.

Waitresses were attentive and knowledgeable. The veal ravioli, special of the day, was very good. Nice atmosphere and prices were reasonable. Plan to go back soon.
My mashed potatoes were not whipped just cool and hard, they supported the filet very well

If you would like to discuss further, please reach out to owner Bill Loveday. We hope you will consider giving us another try in the future.
Great service from Shelby. Loved getting to know Alex better. Next time, I will order a cup followed by a bowl of corn and crab chowder! The red fish was delicious and the men at our table said the steaks were cooked to perfection.
Your chef is superb as the rest of the kitchen staff must be.

We visited for the official Bacaro re- branding. Enjoyed the complimentary glass of bubbly as we shared the charcuterie board. The Atlantic salmon with shrimp was lovely! Keep up the good work!👏🏻👍🏻
Hi Nicola, thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your evening with us welcoming Bacaro to the neighborhood. Chef Dane George is known for his Atlantic Salmon with Shrimp dish so we are glad you loved it too. We look forward to seeing you soon!
A sweet family business. This is the perfect place to bring your parents. The food is good, but not memorable; lacks zing for the price point; it felt a little over-priced. Hopefully, the menu items will get a little more zest as they get their feet under them. The portions are very generous. The service was attentive and friendly. The setting is comfortable without being stuffy. I say I'd recommend it to a friend for a family outing with older parents.
Food was fantastic and wine selection is as well. Will definitely be coming back to this neighborhood gem. I hear they are working on developing a working lunch crowd. Can't wait to see what options they have for business / client lunches.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! The Bacaro team is very happy to hear you enjoyed your visit with us. We are now featuring our 3-course Bacaro Business lunch Tuesday-Friday from 11-6pm. We look forward to seeing you in for lunch very soon!
Many menu changes since the renaming has removed several of my favorite dishes.
Also, didn't have my usual wine that I drink, and I suspect my favorite bar tender/waiter is no longer there. He was missing on my last two visits.
Will still visit for events.... just disappointed.
