Delicious food pretty restaurant. Only thing I asked for a nice table facing the water and was told yes for my anniversary . Was given a table in the corner and had to complain to put inside instead
The food was delicious and our server,Lauren was outstanding. We will definitely be back soon.
Food and staff both excellent
I thought the Caesar Salad was wonderful but charging $12 dollars for just 2 shrimp is rather outrageous. It should be at least 3 shrimp for that amount of money!!!
Good food , good service
I absolutely love this restaurant!! We come here often. Food is delicious and the service is great! All the waitstaff are really wonderful. Highly recommend!
The location is amazing and the food is over priced and low quality. I do not recommend.
We are now regulars at Barelli's by the Sea. The menu has many good choices. The food is great and the service is friendly. Liam does a great job managing the restaurant!
Our first time dining at Bareli’s and had a very pleasurable dining experience. The food and presentation was excellent and the wait staff was professional. Every course was memorable. We look forward to our next meal at Bareli’sx
Had a fantastic lunch.
Food was excellent as usual. Inventive specials and great drinks.
Food was amazing
From the moment you enter to the moment you leave, everything is impeccable.
loved everything about our experience. food was outstanding and our waitress Susan was the best.
Vacation with family
We had dinner with friends that we had not seen in a long time. Everything was lovely from the food to the service.
The noise level was extremely high. There were two very loud drunken tables that ruined the evening not just for my table but also the tables surrounding us. The ambiance, food and service was excellent, but we will not be back due to an unruly, drunk, loud, and obnoxious crowd.
Very good meal
We had a lovely lunch with a view of the dunes from our table. The service was impeccable and the food was very good.
Excellent food. Gracious staff!
First time at Bareli's By the Sea...
Nice menu selection without being overwhelming.
Accommodating of special request.
Both appetizer & entrees were nicely sized & beautifully presented.
Excellent, attentive service
Would highly recommend!!
Water spotted silverware
For being a restaurant down the Jersey shore seafood choices was very limited. Linguine with spicy clam lacked flavor. Salmon tartare was mediocre.
Bareli’s is quite a treat. Lovely setting, professional waitstaff, high caliber dining. Owner is welcoming and sets the tone for a memorable evening. A must if you’re in Spring Lake.
Love the whole experience
Liam is the best
LOVED Coming here. The mango margs and bloody marys were awesome. Also loved the shrimp cocktail and burrata. The quality of the lobster for the lobster roll was good but the raspberry mayo was a little strange.
Awesome everything on a beautiful day!!!
Amazing! Based on some of the negative reviews, we almost didn't go. We arrived early for our reservation and were quickly accommodated, despite being very busy. Service was perfectly friendly and attentive without being overwhelming or intrusive. We ordered salads that were huge and delicious. (The salad alone would have been enough for me). The pasta was al dente delicious and the portion, while not large, was not at all small, as indicated in prior reviews. The entrees looked huge.
My only complaint is noise level - super loud.
So happy we didn't skip it. A delicious and memorable meal!
Really enjoyed our most recent visit. Apps and entrees excellent, service was great. The pistachio ricotta cheesecake truly amazing. We’ll be back again soon
Delicious fig salad & entrees. Great service from Susie
Food is quite good and consistent, but the wait staff though very friendly is struggling to be competent and the noise level in the sun room is much too high with one table of four, three tables of two and Frank Sinatra blasting from the speakers.
A Mazing “special” Fig Salad and Swordfish!! Fabulous Service!!
Excellent staff! Excellent food! The lobster roll was really good. The soft shell crab was really fresh.
The food overall was really good. The calamari was the best, as was the tri-color salad. The entree veal parmigiana was good, as the sauce and preparation was done very professionally, with the appropriate selection for spices. Unfortunately the veal was too tough. The service staff was very helpful, considerate, and welcoming.
My wife and I enjoyed a lovely diner yesterday evening. The setting is very nice just across from the beach in a charming older hotel. Service was excellent - responsive but not overbearing. I ordered a Caesar Salad to start and the seafood risotto for my main dish. My wife also orders a salad and grilled tuna. The food was delicious and the portions very generous. A perfect choice for low key, charming Spring Lake
We we’re celebrating our anniversary. The food was good. We had eggplant and chicken parmigiana. Price seemed fair for location/quality. Very nice place.
Great food great service. Best pork chops around
Very nice atmosphere! Would definitely recommend!
