My husband and I Went for birthday dinner and had wonderful meal. Tomato cucumber falafel salad, Indian egg , gnocchi Nero and house focaccia.. oh yes the coffee toffee pudding. Great service from Christopher, early so quiet for conversation and parking spot. The dishes were so flavorful, I loved the gnocchi Nero with crabmeat, so rich that I sopped up the sauce with my focaccia .
I thought the chef played with contrasts in taste and textures, crispy falafel and cucumber with rich creamy Greek yogurt, coffee toffee was crunchy and creamy and sweet and salty. Definitely will go back to try the eclectic menu with fresh farm to table ingredients.

We have been regular loyal customers since Baran's opened. The chef, social, humble and friendly does an excellent job with the seasonings, sauces he uses on the dishes he prepares. About every month the menu changes. The owners and their staff (family the first corkage is $25, the second is $35.

I wish Baran's a very successful, fruitful and prosperous future, they have earned it!

Baran’s 2239 is a rare find. Excellent and unique dishes that are prepared to perfection. You might pay a bit more for a meal at Baran’s but it is well worth it. I would recommend this fine restaurant to everyone that appreciated excellent food!

Great night out. Been meaning to try Baran’s for awhile now. Finally made it when had friends visiting from out of town. Wanted to go somewhere new (for us) but didn’t want to travel far. Barans was the perfect call. Food was great. Options covered everyone’s needs/wants. Service very good and atmosphere very nice.

Only minor complaint (not sure that’s right word) was that the plates came out in pretty rapid succession. We ordered six items for the 4 of us (recommended by waitress). It was right amount of food, but probably would have ordered in smaller batches so the food would come a little better spaced. We had latish reservation so we weren’t being rushed to turn the table and still plenty of people eating when we left. Next time I would take more control of ordering/pace of dinner.

Amazing wine list! The first list in the US to have Perinet that I've seen. I'll have to go back and try many of the dishes we didn't have room for. Loved it.

They are cooking up some really yummy food and service is excellent and friendly. What bothered me is the effort to squeeze every dollar out of you. Recommending we order 6-8 dishes for a party of four? We ordered five dishes and were stuffed thanks to fairly generous portions. Charging $2 for filtered tap water for the table? I’ve never experienced that. Maybe it’s an L.A. thing. I’d recommend it with a warning that it’s overpriced.

Always very good when we come here! We love how we would never be able to make it at home so even if you spend a lot dining here it isn’t something you can replicate! Noise level was loud as we were there at peak dining so it wasn’t as romantic as we were celebrating our anniversary. Also asked for an end table but they gave it to the couple that came right after us.

Baran’s is always a treat. Inventive menu with delicious flavor combinations. Great for sharing plates. Friendly service often by one of the owners. It never disappoints. It’s our go-to place for a special dinner.

I thought the vegetable dishes were delicious; the brussel sprouts salad and the kale salad were both absolutely delicious and fair priced for what we received. We also had the halibut ($38) which was really salty, and had clam juice in it so was a bit of a turn off as made it quite fishy, however there was an apple slaw on top that was divine; then we had the $46 pork chop which was beautiful to look at and quite artful, however was really really salty and overpriced. I would go back for sure and eat the vegetarian dishes as they were the best and really yummy.

The food and service was above average. However, they charged for bread without telling me before the meal. I spent $300+ and you charged me $6 for bread. Lame. Not going back.

Been back to Baran’s many times and have never been disappointed. The constantly changing menu shows off the kitchens versatility and creativity. This time the pork chop was a big hit with the table as were the clams. Will definitely be visiting again.

The service was great as well. All in all this is a wonderful and quaint restaurant with a great community feel. Love it!
