Beautiful classy Restaurant! Extremely Delicious food ! Amazing service !
This place is a treasure!
Great location on the ocean in Spring Lake. Had given up on this place under the old management, but heard there were new owners, so decided to try again. Food good. Prices laughable. $63 for lobster. $22/glass for Sancerre (even for pinot grigio). Servers pleasant and well intended, but clearly had little or no training. Served/cleared from one spot, reaching across diners. Had no idea of who ordered what when the food arrived. Took utensils on plates after first course, but never replaced them. We had to ask. Placed check directly into my wife's hands, which were resting on the table.
If they want to charge like a white tablecloth, fine dining restaurant, they need to bring in someone who understands fine dining service.
Great spot for lunch with indoor and outdoor dining. We ate outdoors and enjoyed the views of the ocean, however the inside dining room is very pretty also.I enjoyed my grilled salmon and salad and loved the chocolate cake for dessert.
We loved our dinner at Bareli’s- the only thing we didn’t like was the wait… more than 30 minutes, despite having a reservation! The staff was very apologetic, however they have a 90 minute limit on tables & should enforce it or spread out the reservations. Food was outstanding! Service once we were seated was great. Quite expensive, which is expected, but it would have been nice to have been comped a drink to make up for our wait.
Even though there was a one and a half hour limit for a party of two, we waited quite a long time for our entrees. Would not go back!
This was our first time eating dinner at Bareli's By the Sea, but it won't be the last. The table service by Dan and his helpers was EXCELLENT. They have a full bar with a limited but livable wine selection. Dan dealt with food allergies and substitutions like a professional, without comment or hesitation. Everyone in our party commented about how happy they were with the calamari appetizer and with their entrees. Try their delicious Tiramisu. It is better than anywhere else. OVERALL it was very enjoyable. We will definitely be back!
Kelly, our waitress was fantastic
It was a special evening. I brought my 96 yr old Mother.
She said that the lobster ravioli was delicious but had a little to much disuse.
My salmon was absolutely delicious.
The service was super.
The staff was friendly and professional.
The food is delicious!!!!
Great meal. Good atmosphere. Loved the entertainment.
Our server was wonderful! Food was good.
Bareli’s is one of my favorite restaurants down the shore! Their baked clams are to die for, so is the shrimp orreganata and the chicken francese. Awesome cocktails too! The patio is great with an ocean view, and the inside is energetic with occasional live music. also, very friendly staff!!
It was good but our table was not ready at the reservation time. They took our number and never called. Then they put us up against where the waiters had their water bucket, table, etc. waiter was good. His name was Jack.
Great! Our go to for lunch whenever we go to Spring Lake.
We expected service to be slow but 1 hr and 30 minutes to receive our lunch was a bit too long. The waiter was pleasant but not attentive. The food was okay but nothing to brag about. Very disappointed in this restaurant.
The food and service were excellent . Beautiful location . A little pricey but wonderful .
Fantastic! The food was superbly prepared. The staff was incredibly professional and friendly. Our waiter was charming. Can’t wait to go back!
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.
Just not as good as the first time that we went. Will not be going back.
Meatballs are amazing! The veal Marsala is mouth watering. Overall a great place to eat.
Beautiful atmosphere by the beach. Excellent service. The food was great. A very nice evening.
Enjoyed this restaurant. Location was great. Food and service was wonderful.
I has a nice vibe. Close to the ocean and views are nice. Services are great. Dishes are pretty good. I'll come back again.
The food was superb!
Awesome food and service!
Absolutely delicious dinner. Tuna tartare, clams and bursts to start all superb. Two of us ordered the chicken barely and it was delicious. I would definitely return. Great vacation dinner.
One of the best meals we’ve had in ages. My husband and I shared the angry lobster. It was huge and incredible! This is a must if you are visiting the area.
Waiter and food were excellent!
Food was inedible for most of the party of 6. My dogs liked it though
thank you for being an adult. Please do not come back!!!!
Pork chop parmigiana is one of the best dinners I’ve ever had.
The food was excellent and the ambiance by the sea was calming and inspiring.
Excellent food and service
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.
Great food, service and location. Good menu selection with plenty of specials. We will be going back often.
Fabulous all around. Festive mood . Seer wait staff. Delicious food .
Pork chop was super delish! Crab salad & oysters fresh and so tasty! Would definitely recommend 👍
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.
