Flexible with our large group, the hostess called 10 minutes before the reservation to confirm we were coming, the food came out very quickly and was delicious, our waitress Leah was excellent!

Worst food and service I have ever experienced when going out for dinner. We have had better food at fast food places. My wife could hardly eat any of it. Would highly recommend skipping this place when in Baltimore. Definitely not anywhere near worth the price 😠.

This was my first time here, but I have nothing but good things to say! A group of my friends and I went for brunch on Sunday at 12:15PM. There were a lot of people (good thing I made a reservation!), so a bit noisy but still very welcoming and fun. They serve bottomless mimosas and bloody marys on Sundays which was amazing and the food was DELICIOUS! Highly recommend the Oaxaca Guacamole and the pineapple pork tacos!! My friends got the spiced pork hash, apple cinnamon french toast, and mahi mahi tacos, with zero complaints. The portion sizes were just right, leaning on the larger size, but for the price of the dishes everything was worth it.

Our food was good for our large group. It was noted that we had food that was served that was not warm or hot but the staff fixed it. The replacement food was delicious.

Great atmosphere and amazing service. As a vegan, I had a hard time finding a good meal option, I would love to see Barcocina have a more inclusive menu for dietary needs.

We were looking for a nice place to have lunch with out of town friends. Food and service great.location and water views great. It was a little too noisy( music) to have a nice quiet lunch.

I went to this restaurant with my boyfriend during restaurant week and I was not disappointed. Out of all the restaurants we went to this buy far was the best! Their food quality was perfect and every dish I had was very flavorful. This was my first time here and I will definitely be dining here again.

Table was in a spot that was very dark....near bar and bathrooms.....could barely see menus. Been there several times.....very nice ....but our table was just in a bad spot. We did add 2 more to our party of 8 and they did squeeze us in. Appreciate their flexibility.

My overall experience was amazing. I would definitely go back. Noise level was reasonable, but there was a crowd watching football who were making a lot of noise. The food was delicious, I did not care for the calamari, as it was the last item that our table received. I'm definitely coming back to try other dishes, on an off football day.

We were seated in the heated, sunny part of the restaurant, so other than being very hot the whole time, our party of 4 enjoyed New Year's Day brunch. They really need to have shades! Our service was excellent, and the bottomless mimosas had plenty of champagne. We chose 3 kinds of tacos, guacamole, and the pancake sliders. All were delicious!

I rarely take time to write a full review on places because everyone has their off days especially if it is busy but I just had to after last night. This place used to be our go to spot while visiting Baltimore. However, this time around we had a different experience. As we sat and waited for our food we saw a mouse running back and forth ( we didn’t think much of it because they have an outside area connected and we were understanding of that ). We received our yucca tots before our meal which we ordered as a side ( again no big deal to us ) however, they were still frozen inside. Our waiter was apologetic and they made us a new order that we received shortly after our tacos. Our waiter was amazing and was the only good part of our night at Barcocina. Now, for the tacos, my fiancé ordered the steak tacos which came ice cold and my fish taco was cold to the point where I couldn’t even eat it. At this point we felt so bad for the waiter we didn’t even mention anything. We just couldn’t comprehend how the quality of food was so poor considering we were one of two tables in the entire restaurant on a very slow Sunday night. We sadly will not be going back.

The restaurant was super loud, like shout across the table to be heard loud, plus the music on top of that. The cocktail I had was mostly ice. The tacos were mostly bland, but not awful. Prices are good. The biggest deterrent was just the noise level - really horrible.

We had been to Barcocina several times before and had drinks and appetizers and everything was delicious! We decided to take friends this past weekend and noticed the menu has changed significantly, what a disappointment. The apps that we really liked were gone and basically there was just average guacamole and tacos, it was fine but I wouldn't go back.

The views and food were amazing. The quality of food was great. The drinks were superb. This restaurant sat on the waterfront of such a cute town Fells Point. I will definitely be back. It was so cute inside as well as great to sit outside and look at the water. Loved it!

We had a group, all arriving separately. Our server made sure everyone was taken care of while we waited for others, was very patient with us, and kept all the orders straight. We were seated in a somewhat private corner. And the food was excellent too!

Food wasn’t great! Low on flavor - lacked any kind of hot sauce or spice! Too loud, I wouldn’t see it as energetic.
Main thing- food wasn’t great/ just bland

I would recommend it primarily for it's location and the ability to sit with a water view. The inside was noisy and we had to wait about 45 minutes for our food, longer than I would like. The food was good, but not great. The waitress was pleasant and the prices were reasonable.

While the quality of the food, drinks, and environment are one to brag about. The service is not always. Our server was rarely around and when she was she did not often come to our table to check on us. Our table as well as another in her section had to take our bill to the front get someone to help us to pay and leave because of how little our server paid attention to her table.

Good for a large work group, but for everyone else don’t bother unless you get a spot outside. The food isn’t very good so don’t go for the food.
