First time returning to Baran's since the pandemic and they did not disappoint! Food was excellent as usual and the atmosphere was perfect for a nice dinner. We've been picking up the amazing breakfast burritos during the pandemic, but we were glad to be able to sit down and enjoy the great food they offer. We had the focaccia bread (great starter for the meal), Shaved brussels sprout salad, Bahn mi Pork Belly, and the Pan Roasted Halibut. All dishes were amazing and would definitely come back again. The Bundt cake with the almond ice cream is a nice finisher as well.

I heard about the taco shop, Tigres Fuego, started by the Baran brothers opened so definitely going to check that out as well!

The food was amazing. Even tho they say small plates, the portions are quite large.
We had the Maple Persimmon Salad. So delish. The Wieser Farms Honeynut Squash was outstanding especially the mole on the bottom. Then the "Bahn Mi" Pork Belly which was very "meaty" and not too fatty. My wife even had some. And then the Mushroom Tagliatelle. OMG the mushrooms! It is a treat to have such an outstanding restaurant in the South Bay area. You should go.

We love this restaurant! It is small, intimate and hands-on. Lively atmosphere. The owners are friendly and fabulous. If you are a foodie, you will love all the interesting flavors. The tapas style makes it fun to experiment and share. A gem in the South Bay!

Service was great, food was fantastic. Well cooked, dressed, balanced. Staff was incredibly friendly. Small restaurant with a fun atmosphere. The only bummer was how fast it all went. In and out, 4 courses in just over an hour. Totally understand though, they have to turn tables fast in a small space. Would have just liked to lounge a little longer and drank more ;-) we’ll be back either way.

Outstanding, creative cuisine. The ability to "not be categorized" enables total range of dishes unaffiliated with a given genre or nationality.

This was a Birthday dinner for my son. Amazing❤️ Arrival to this intimate but lively place was inviting. Gnocchi was soft with a superb fresh sauce. Fried chicken was juicy, sweet, spicy and crispy how??? Steak Tatar had a beautiful presentation and perfectly seasoned with a touch of heat. Btw son has Celiac disease and this place is safe with many options. Simply delightful evening.

Our meal at Baran’s was delicious, from the focaccia at the start to the coffee toffee pudding at the end. In between, we enjoyed delicious well-presented courses like steak tartare, mushroom tagliatelle and smoked fried chicken. The service was friendly and fantastic. Always a great meal.

What a great and unassuming neighborhood gem. Small but a feel of regular patrons enjoying a meal with “family”. Every dish from cheese sampler to shared tartar, pasta and a steak done to perfection. Nice wine selection but we opted to bring our own with a corkage fee. We will be back.

Love this spot. It is cozy and vibrant at the same time. The staff makes you feel like your a guest in their home rather than a restaurant. Not to mention the food was impeccable. Always go for the recommendation from the waiter they are usually pushing the freshest ingredient dishes. Split an appetizer, salad, main and desert with my date along with a bottle of wine and it was very well priced and we left full and happy.

Baran’s is back in action, and once again, did not disappoint!! Shaved Brussells salad, Spanish mussels with papa & chorizo, squash blossom rellenos, and halibut with charred corn and runner bean succotash… JUST. WOW.

Thanks (as always!) for an AMAZING dinner, Jason, Johnathan & Chef Tyler!!!

So nice to have dine in service again at Baran's! This is probably my favorite restaurant. We started with the crudo and steak tartare. The tartare was good but the crudo was AMAZING! We had the harissa eggplant which was sooo good! The halibut was okay but the spare ribs were delicious! Our server was great and she gave us many suggestions. We shared the O Captain dessert which was so so. We were celebrating our 29th anniversary and the last time we were there was in October of 2019. It's too far for us to take out during pandemic so we are thrilled they have reopened the dining room. Oh we also had glasses of the Mario Bazan cab and it was very good!

So glad they reopened to in person dining! Mostly new menu but they kept 3 or 4 things, including the Indian Egg. Everything on the menu sounded interesting. Squash blossoms and the gnocchi were outstanding. Different wine list too, with more Italian wines. Same great servers and service. Will be dining here often again.

After over 500 days of takeout hell, Baran's has opened its doors to in-person dining. What took ya so long?

The smoked chicken is still delicious and survived some menu changes. The halibut is tender and fresh tasting.

Congrats to Jenna, Jason and Jonathan for weathering the Covid storm...
