Service was attentive, and apologetic due to mistakes during the meal.
We love it there. All round great. Super wine list and beautiful view. Music on weekends is a plus. Fresh food and menu
The food was good but it was more about the miserable hostess that needs some lessons in hospitality. You know like making your guests feel welcome for a start🙄
Beautiful view, right on Ocean Blvd and delightful setting. Lunch menu is basically glorified pub food, but good nonetheless. A bit disappointing if you expect seafood. Service was a bit slow but so nice and gracious.
The angry lobster and squid ink pasta was delicious!!
We went for my partner’s birthday and had a fantastic time. We sat in the “outside” area (kind of like a porch on the old house) and had lovely sea breezes as we ate. The food was great if slightly on the pricey side. There was a live singer inside that sounded amazing but we were also under some speakers playing different music so that was a little distracting — could hear both but couldn’t really enjoy either. Such a minor complaint though, I’d definitely go back in a heartbeat. This place has kind of an old school feel that I haven’t experienced in quite a while.
The hostess was rude , waiter was friendly, two appetizers were okay, we ordered two different lobster rolls , both were the worst lobster roll we ever had .
GREAT service and you can’t beat the location!
Good food and good service
Delicious!!! Fabulous service!!
Was here over the weekend, food was very good and service was very attentive . We started off with fried calamari which was very good even though they did not have the tentacles. The fresh bread and olives were very fresh and excellent for the table. I had spicy clams with angel hair pasta that was very flavorful just wish clams were bigger and more sausage in the dish. My wife had a chicken Brielle dish that was excellent very good size portion with great taste and a rich dish. Awesome place will be back,
Sinner was very good. We had an awesome waiter! My green beans were almost raw. That was my only complaint! The pork chop parmesan was simply amazing! Enough to feed 3 people!
Caution, OpenTable failed. After a long drive the worker said they never received the reservation. Fortunately they found us a table. Food was fine. Only thing, both filet mignons were a little overcooked.
Amazing food with incredible flavor. Portion size was very large and the menu had plenty of variety for everybody. My wife and I did not finish the large portions but happily had the remains for lunch the following day. We are on vacation but plan to eat there again!
Wonderful as always
Excellent food and service
We had a wonderful dinner. Food and service were both excellent. We sat on the porch with a lovely view of the dunes and the ocean.
Our waitress, Emily, was phenomenal! We are regulars at this fabulous place bc they have it all!! Great staff, great service, great cocktails and great food!! Even fabulous singers on Friday and Saturday nights!! And Liam is a fabulous manager! So lucky to have the restaurant in our town! Lisel and Geoff Perselay
Our waitress, Susie was amazing! She made the experience top notch. Food and cocktails were delicious!
Everything was perfect!
It was a wonderful dinner. Our server was attentive and the food was delicious!
We have been trying to get in to Bareli’s all summer.
It was definitely worth the wait.
Looking forward to going back.
Front of the house was awol when we arrived. But eventually we hit a server and he was great. Food was very good. Burata cheese special with figs was amazing. My scallops with crab risotto was great and hubby’s Spivey clams with linguine was also very good. We will be back
Unfortunately waited about 30 min to sit with reservation. Forced to purchase several rounds at the bar would’ve been nice gesture to see a free beverage. Food was delicious though and awesome waitress.
Food was not tasty and seemed not fresh! The steak sandwich was awful. Chunks of tough meet not thick sliced soft filet. Hamburger was just basic with a strange taste. Food was way overpriced. The restaurant did take the steak sandwich off the bill. Would also question about the COVID-19 protocol or lack of!
please do not come back to barelis thank you.
I’ve been here for lunch so noise level much quieter. First dinner.. there were large parties so of course, noise level higher, but that’s fine. The food was wonderful and service great. I will return!
Great service, large portions of basic Italian food. Fabulous desserts
Outstanding! Kelly our waitress was amazing. Food was fantastic. Bartender made the drinks awesome. In a time where the service industry is suffering due to supply chain issues and staffing shortages they did an outstanding job!
Food is excellent. Welcoming atmosphere, but table service was a little overbearing. Rushed our ordering, too many visits to the table and too anxious to clear the table.
Very , very noisy
Frequent Bareli’s diner. Noise level is seriously uncomfortable.
Last time at Bareli's. Poor value. Poor service. Good food. Not worth the trip or expense. Too many other restaurants in the area that know how to make a good drink and train their servers.
Fantastic food. Best down the beach. Service weak
Very good meal.
Food and service was very good !
First time to dine at Bareli's. Food was excellent as was service. Our waiter, Jack, was spot on with his recommendations
Beautiful spot with ocean breezes and the sound of the ocean from the outdoor tables . The indoor tables have a surprisingly fun vibe . The food is delicious and the menu has many choices .
The service was excellent - from the hostess to our waitress, Kelly , the bus people ( including Henry ) . Hands down the most friendly service team .
A gem on the Jersey Shore !
Wonderful meal. Wonderful staff. Thank you to liam for the outstanding service!
