Very enjoyable dinner with nice views of the ocean. The "outdoor" porch seating is covered and has windows that can open or close depending on the weather. My husband and I shared an appetizer special and the "angry lobster" pasta dish. Both were excellent and it was large enough portions for the two of us to share. The service was friendly and efficient. Overall a great place for a special occasion.
Everything was great! Nice window seat with view of beach. Food outstanding- loved the meatballs ricotta appetizer and pork chop parmigiana special. We will be back!
Weekend away with sisters and mom. Had a wonderful dinner! Food and service were excellent, great atmosphere, dim lighting and a fantastic singer. Great cocktails as well. This place is a find!
We had a delicious dinner - excellent salads . The chicken bareli dish is particularly tasty.
My cocktail was well prepared and the wine selection quite good.
The staff was very welcoming and professional.
Probably the only note I would make is that the restaurant was partially full, so pressure on the kitchen and staff was manageable.
Awesome! Everything from food quality to service & atmosphere-always exceptional!
My husband and I made a return visit to Bareli’s since our last two experiences were so positive and reviews continue to be great. We once again shared the Tri Color Salad and it did not disappoint (sooo good!). For our entree, we both ordered the Eggplant Parmigiana over linguine with garlic and oil…FABULOUS!! You know the food is good when you just can’t stop eating it even when you’re full…
I also want to give a shout out to our waitress (Tracy)…she is awesome! Thank you Bareli’s for another excellent meal! 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷
Food excellent service very good
Now, this was an epicurean delight! At first sight, walking up to this magnificent hotel, was nothing less than charming. The lovely outdoor porch was where we dined and so glad we did. The porch was sparkling with white tablecloths and napkins and crystal clear water glasses. The servers were impeccable, Renee was one of them.
Wonderful service. I had gazpacho soup that was fantastic. It wasn't even on the menu but they let me order it anyway. We were there for lunch but I saw that this soup was on the dinner menu. It was so good that I took some home. The filet mignon sandwich was so tender, juicy and tasty. I can't wait to go back.
It may seem a little pricey but it was worth every penny. I highly recommend this restaurant. The added bonus is the beach is right across the street
The ambiance was excellent. the food and service were excellent as well!
The food was delicious and the service was great. What not to like when your view is the the ocean in such a pretty place as Spring Lake!!!
Another excellent dining experience at Bareli's in Spring Lake!! Party of 4 celebrating life!! We enjoyed Oysters Sambuca, Fig and Pear Crostini for appetizers. For dinner, Shrimp Oreganata, Pasta Carbonara, Salmon and Spicy Clams Linguini!! This was the first time we sat in the back room, very loud. We did enjoy some very nice music sung by a very talented young singer!! This is an excellent restaurant for special occasions or for just enjoying life!! Make a reservation and go and enjoy.
Food was amazing! We loved it.
Service was ok, there was a party starting, so I think all servers were helping with that.
Spur of the moment search for a restaurant open Monday evening in or near Spring Lake and Bareli's by the Sea popped up. So my friend and I (looking a bit disheveled and really not dressed appropriately) showed up and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Staff was friendly and professional and food very tasty! Oysters Sambuca and Lobster Ravioli with chunks of lobster in the very good sauce. We sat on the screened porch and enjoyed the remains of the day!
Great Place! Such great staff, and was welcomed by such great Hostess Anastasia. I had the Chicken Bareli’s and the Pistachio Cheesecake. And they were both delicious!
Our waiter was WONDERFUL! Food was delicious. Could have had more windows open for outdoor dining. Also vacuum was run right next to us while we were eating. Found that odd and annoying. Most of the tables around us remarked about that.
It was lunchtime. The person I went with asked for a dinner meal, the waitress asked the chef and he agreed. The lobster raviolis were tough. The waitress asked if she wanted another one. She said no.
I can say that the oysters were fabulous as usual.
We were seated on time. Our waiter took our order and he never came to our table in the 2 hours were there. I had to ask another waiter for our check.
Server Susan was terrific. Food was awesome
Liam the owner is very attentive and the food is great
Busy night, but service was solid and our dishes were great. A reliable local favorite.
Waitress was exceptional; sat on the sun porch which was lovely. The food was excellent. We were celebrating our anniversary and when the waitress found out she brought out our dessert with a sparkler! It was so special. Great anniversary celebration!
Beautiful atmosphere, great friendly staff and delicious food. Sat for 3 hours. Never rushed
One of my new favorite places
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.
