    I had the pleasure of having another dining experience at Barka yesterday. I had the Chilean Seabass, and my friend had the lamb chops. Both dishes were prepared, perfectly, and tasted divine. The weight staff was attentive and professional, and accommodating. This is a very special restaurant. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. I look forward to going back soon.

    Fine Place, but overpriced. Good service, nice vibe (if not a bit utilitarian), lots of volume, good food (a bit overcooked), however for the price of the dishes (i.e. $42 for four medium-sized scallops) you might want an alternative. Rather basic, straight forward recipes - mostly grilled/boiled/steamed fish over mash potatoes, rather than interesting dishes. Still, a fine place and worth going, but for the money, you might want to try a place with a bit more culinary inventiveness.

    Dinner was great. The Paella was outstanding and the Steaks and Red snapper were terrific. The service was awesome and the ambiance was lovely. The only downsize was they no longer offer our favorite appetizer the charcuterie.

    Great looking Greeted well and seated quickly Bus staff were outstanding Waiter was aloof and detached Finally took order and then out of sight u yuk almost done The food was ok my wife had scallops and her liked the 4 pieces served I ordered the pork chop and it was good looking but tasteless The sides of spinach and mashed were excellent After the meal when the waiter finally came to see if we wanted dersert And the. Asked how was meal He. I said the pork chop was tasteless he did he doesn’t eat pork lol I then sled for the check and he just left for about 20minutes and the. Brought the check I then waited another 10 to get it back So overall could have been better But maybe just the luck of the draw and I ordered a menu item they don’t do well

    Small portions. Suvlaki was NOT Suvlaki, but two small chicken breast pieces with tdzadiki..... I saw a $50 porterhouse steak come out that was tiny. Prices high, especially considering what they served. Definitely would not return

    We eat at their sister restaurant, Sear House, often and love it. So we were really excited about trying this restaurant. Unfortunately, our hopes were dashed. We waited close to 30 minutes for someone to take our order. Didn’t get our second round of drinks until we were well into our meal. We ordered the whole branzino special once our server told it the whole fish oven baked and deboned table side with a beautiful presentation. However, when it arrived, it was a fillet, not the whole fish, and there was nothing done table side. When we asked what happened, we were told that because we were seated outdoors, they can’t do that by the table. Huh? Then why tell us it’s a whole fish deboned table side if you can’t actually do that? The food was bland and they gave us one small red bliss potato cut in half with our fish fillet. Kinda pathetic for a $45 dish. I was looking forward to trying the other restaurants in this group, but now I’m a little hesitant to do so.

    We had four of us and 3 of the meals were very good and the other one was good. The waiter was ok, as it was busy and he did not stop by very ofter. Took 20 minutes to get the check. Overall a very good experience.

    We went for my best friend's birthday, I asked them for a cake or something like that to celebrate his birthday they didn't pay attention to my request. the dining room was really hot and the service was slow and poor otherwise the food was really good. I guess that I would give them another visit to see if maybe my next time become a better experience ( I work in the industry also, so I was expecting more from a place like this)

    I understand the outside temp are high, but inside it was very hot. We have been told that the AC is working but can't keep up. I think this is more like a design issue. They have an open kitchen and a pizza open in the dining area, which is causing the AC not being able to keep up with the heat. So I recommend the food and the ambience for sure, but I recommend cooler days to choose to go.
