Food was great service was fantastic we will be back we just won’t sit up front.

We are unfortunately still short staffed and CR very much came out to support in a big way on that evening so we fairly busy. We do hope that you give us another try in the future. We have been hiring and training so hopefully what you experienced doesn't happen to anyone else. Again we are very sorry for that slow experience. Grazie.

Unfortunately being a locally owned small restaurant trying to stay afloat thru a pandemic as well as the cost of goods skyrocketing over the past 2 years, we are not able to give away bread. Many restaurants will build the price of the bread into every menu item, every table gets it, but that can lead to waste as well as everyone paying for bread even if they don't want it. We definitely appreciate your feedback. Grazie.

Avoid the focaccia bread—dry and didn’t provide near enough olive oil and Parmesan cheese for dipping. Other appetizer was just ok. Wine selection average. Overall, good experience but not great.

We're sorry you didn't enjoy the bread but always know you can ask for more olive oil. We portion it out as it is not a cheap ingredient and we dislike waste so we start each table out with a ramekin. What was your other appetizer? We like to hear feedback as we are always trying to better the restaurant. What were you looking for in terms of wine that you didn't see? Grazie.

We apologize for not having Budweiser, however we do carry several other beers. If a guest has a negative experience we really do like to hear from them while in the restaurant so we may do our best to rectify the situation; we didn’t hear any complaints from you when asked more than once. We truly do want to make every guest experience a positive one.

Our server, Michelle, was attentive, knowledgeable, and great fun. Our entrees were absolutely spectacular! Try the ravioli...you will NOT be disappointed! We appreciate that portion sizes are enough to satisfy hungry folks, but not so huge to be overbearing. Our wine, recommended by Michelle, was outstanding - we took a photo of the bottle so we could get it for home. One of our dining companions is very gluten-sensitive. He was very happy with the GF selections and raved about the taste of his entree. Bari is hard to beat - in Cedar Rapids or anywhere else. Many thanks for another memorable evening!

We do very much appreciate your support and understand that you have a lot of choices when deciding to go out, and appreciate you choosing us. However, I do apologies for the fact that the staff decided to close things down early, as this is not how we do business at Bari and I will be looking into the event and making some changes so no one else experiences this. Again I do apologies and hope to see you again. Grazie.
