We thank Barka for setting up a table for us even though the reservation system should not of taken our reservation. We enjoyed our dinner. The restaurant is beautiful!
Great place, very busy but great service and food.
First thing my wife and I noticed is that the restaurant was WAY over the 35% max capacity currently in place. Virtually every seat, on every table was packed. Now I assume some tables were removed, but no where near enough to account for how small the space was. The room by the bar was completely packed and I would have been nervous if they placed me there. Thankfully we were seated in the next room where I'd say there was a barely acceptable amount of space between the tables.
The best part of the meal was the main course. My steak was superb, as were the mashed potatoes. The downside was I wasn't impressed by the bread. And when I asked if they could make me bacon as an appetizer (as many other restaurants do), I was told no. To be fair it was not on the menu, but it was still a bit of a bummer.
Finally, our first choice for dessert (molten lava cake) was sold out which was another disappointment.
The service was friendly, but verrrrrryyyy slow. We were there for 2 1/2 hours, which is about an hour too long in my book.
Overall the place was very good, but fell short of great. I'd go back, but there are other places I prefer which offer fewer disappointing moments.
A group of friends went to celebrate a 40th birthday. This was my second time here and their first. We all had a wonderful time. Our bartender was super sweet and made me the best dirty martini! Our server was very attentive as well as the women who greeted us! Overall would absolutely recommend Barka for a beautiful atmosphere and really delicious food!
Fantastic food along with excellent service! Great Valentines Day dinner!
Arrived and time and were seated immediately. Met at the table with menus and bread with hummus and olives. REALLY GOOD BTW!
Drinks were served quickly and appy and entree orders were taken as soon as we were ready.
The octopus appy was cooked PERFECTLY and the Burrata with figs and arugula was amazing, fresh and light.
Entrees were hot and absolutely delish! Branzino for me and 6oz filet for her. Both cooked to perfection. We've been there before, we will go back again!
Only downside was a 2nd drink I ordered (an Old Fashioned) was far more bitter than it should have been. The waiter didn't hesitate and took it away without charging.
Service was top notch for sure!
The food was fresh and plentiful. Shrimp cocktail was awesome with hand sized shrimp. Lobster bisque was delicious as was the paella and Greek salad with chicken. We have passed Barka for years and finally stopped, we will definitely be going back!
The food is excellent. Have been to Barka many times and every meal has been exceptional.
Such amazing food!
Food and service were outstanding!! We will continue to come back!
Food was excellent, as was the service. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. Beautiful interior.
Very good restaurant. We had good social distancing and food was great.
We loved everything- food, service, the igloo! Highly recommend and have told everyone!
I was treated to a dinner at Barka for my birthday. My friend requested a bubble but was told she didn’t reserve one when we got there. We cautiously decided to dine indoors under the expressed understanding that no one was to be seated directly next to us. Not only was that not adhered to, but the restaurant was PACKED! Easily Barka was at 85 to 90% capacity. We didn’t stay for a special treat for my birthday. We had our food packed up and we left. The Covid reporting center was notified. Such a shame because the food was very good. I can’t go back to a restaurant that would blatantly disregard their patrons health during a pandemic.
Food is excellent and worth the price. Will definitely be one of our go to places.
The food was very good and ambience is nice especially for a date night. I do recommend when making reservations to request a seat at the couches. Next time we go I will request to sit there.
Excellent service and food. Will definitely go back !
As always, well prepared, fresh and tasty food. Service is excellent. Will continue to return....lamb chops are simply amazing.
Great place to gather with friends because the food and service are always 5 star.
Always great service and good food. Good portions for the price.
We loved it!! From the white table cloths to the classy booths to the great service!! What a gem of a place
We’ve been to Barka several times and I think it’s the first time I used OpenTable but as usual the place is fabulous including the outstanding service and the food I would highly recommend it
Lunch on New Years Day with my BFF. we started with a mimosa and a yummy basket of pita and hummus. We shared two appys Shrimp arrabbiata and mussels with white wine. Both were excellent. The flavors were perfect. Margarita pizza and mushroom risotto were also excellent. The pizza was thin and crispy just the way I like it and the risotto was creamy and flavorful. Mushrooms and truffle were plentiful.
The service was friendly and attentive but def not overbearing. Would def go again and may just make it my new fave location.
New Year Eve dinner with the family table of 5, place is biggest for social distancing , great crowd, outstanding service , great cocktails ,dinner cooked perfectly , highly recommend this restaurant , looking forward to returning..
Thank you !
These are difficult times and the staff, ambiance and food make an infrequent outing most enjoyable.
A wonderful dining experience, had reservation for 8:15 , they called and asked if i would like to seated earlier so kudos for their attention to detail. Our waiter was excellent, his timing was spot on. Quite an extensive menu for Christmas day . The food was so pleasing to the palate and fantastic wine selection. We will definitely be back. Thanks Barka. Michael Lydia and Esther.
Delicious food, great service, pricey but worth the experience
First time for my Husband and I. I made a reservation online for our Anniversary. We were very pleased with our waiter. The food was delicious. My Husband loved his martinis! We will definitely be back.
Great experience! Food was excellent and great service!!
Delicious lobster bisque and tuna tartar. Service outstanding as usual.
Amazing food and service! Nick the manager is very passionate about every detail.
Wonderful Thanksgiving meal. Food service and ambiance were amazing!! Thank you.
Food was good, had 2 bad oysters but that happens. Service was great! Very expensive, bill for 2 people was $374, way too much. I would try it again and give it another chance.
Always a pleasure to dine there
Food, staff, and service was excellent! Just slightly pricey in my opinion, but hard to find a well balanced properly cooked meal these days. Nothing dry, overcooked, undercooked or sloppy. Very well done. Flavors all complimented perfectly. Would visit again for the right occasion.
The food was superb. The wait staff phenomenal. The out door seating a plus.
Outstanding food and service. Felt very safe as the tables are spread apart for true social distancing. There are even signs on certain tables in the dining room and bar area so that nobody sits there.
Food and service were great - very pricey though. Dinner for 2 with tip was $190 and only 2 glasses of wine each
