Worse experience ever, waiter service was horrible very rude, and the manager was even worse, first and last time to this restaurant, it is not worth it, there’s a lot better places and nicer people, would not recommend this place to anyone.

The grilled octopus appetizer was amazing, best we have had locally. Entrees were nice portions and well prepared, the shrimp in the scampi were oversized and juicy, the seared tuna was sushi style and super fresh. The ambiance in the front dining area was warm and comfortable, staff was super attentive too.

This was my first visit but I’ll definitely be back. Beautiful interior with a cool vibe. 3 of us had fish which was great , good portions, and one had lobster ravioli. Service was attentive yet not annoying. Considering it was Christmas Eve and all tables were filled, we never had to worry or wait for our waiter- he was always nearby. Highly recommend visiting!

There was a combination of couples, small groups, and, in the back, large groups. The seating is intimate with a nice looking bar area on one side of the large open space. The service was impeccable and the food was quite good. Although a little more on the fine dining end of the price spectrum, the prices were a good value for what we got. Definitely a good spot to check out!

Another delicious meal at Barka! Order the Old Fashioned cocktail or a Moscow Mule to start the meal with a bang! Appetizers are always outstanding…..octopus, veggie chips, fried calamari and tuna tartare - prepared perfectly. Entrees included HUGE shrimp scampi over risotto, rigatoni Bolognese, Chilean Sea Bass special and also with butternut squash risotto. All wonderful!! Outstanding baklava and tiramisu with cappuccino to finish. Hosts were gracious on a very busy Saturday night and we appreciate it.

We had a wonderful birthday celebration at Barka. The food,service, and ambiance were terrific. Our party of 5 loved the steaks and seafood. From the cheese plate and grilled artichoke hearts to the scallops and filets everything was super.

Steak was cooked to order and was tasty and sizzling, the lobster papardelli had minimal lobster. The waiter was noticeably more interested in the party of 6 next to us. I feel it was a little over priced.

We sat outside and no one else was out there yet we got a table inThe hot sun service was rather slow and in a restaurant that’s supposed to be high end. Give the waiter a clean apron. Seriously it was 4:30. Hardly time to get dirty
