The service was outstanding! Food was very good as well. My only issue was the noise level. There seemed to be a large party happening at the same time so that was likely a factor.

Food was very good however the wait time for the main course was very long. Other than that, it was a nice experience and i will return again in the fall.

Fabulous meal! I had the wild oreganato shrimp which were very tasty, with just the right amount of seasoning. Delicious! My husband had the double cut porkchops which were done medium and he's still talking about how perfect they tasted. Our server Lauren was very pleasant and attentive and checked back to see if we needed anything a few times. Wonderful place to go for a great relaxing meal.

The food was great albeit expensive, nice choice of dishes and very well prepared. There was live music and overall atmosphere a bit loud, but we could still talk and hear each other.

Food is always exceptional. Bar service on this day was extremely slow. Noise level in back corner was intolerable. Some fabric curtains or ceiling panels should be invested in to absorb the sound.

Food good but way too noisy and crowded inside. Jack saved our dinner; after slow service and being ignored by our server, he took over and provided excellent service. A real pro!
But way too noisy to enjoy a dinner at their prices.

Another great evening at Bareli's. Our server Jack was so accommodating and professional. The food was excellent. The crab and avocado salad had was very tasty and had enough crab for four. Double cut pork chop was amazing. Also a big shout out to young Henry who was bussing tables and helping out in the dining room. Others should take note of his work ethic at such a young age.

It was very busy and load. We waited about 45+ minutes for our dinner. Wait staff was attentive and our appetizer was out very quickly. Our drinks were slow in coming to the table as well. Our meals were good not great for the price.
