    Everything was great, even the service. We loved the lady who was serving us. I gave 4 stars for service only because after being seated, no one came to our table for 20 min when I asked if we had a server. After that, everything was an 11 out of 10. We will be back.

    Our first time at Barley& Boar was incredible. We went for our anniversary and sat at the kitchen bar where we watched as the meals were prepared. All of the staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating and the food is incredible! We had The Bird and The Bloom, both delicious! The fried green tomatoes are much better than another local restaurant. And the Doughnuts are a must.

    Enjoyable experience sitting at the bar. We had a cocktail first, and then 3 starters and wine and beer. Everything was tasty and creatively presented. Surprised it was full of people on a Tuesday night. Everyone was friendly, including the staff.

    The food is fabulous and watching the kitchen staff from the counter is great. The noise level is very high. Some sound attenuating material on the ceiling or walls would improve the ambiance. A great find! Who knew, in Atascadero, a five star restaurant!

    We had dinner for husband’s birthday yesterday evening. Daniel was our server and definitely took good care of us. We sat at the counter and watched the chef prepare all of our meal from outstanding clam chowder to excellent entrees of The Beef and the day’s special Mahi dish to the yummy apple donuts for dessert. It was a perfect birthday meal ! We’re going back for my birthday!!

    1st time there, with the new year tasting menu: Food was okay but wasn't mind blowing, some of it was cold and tough (focaccia), some of it was burning hot, some of it way too salty. The size of the pieces were quite small, we were afraid to still be hungry. Dessert had an apple bit the size of a quarter with some graham cracker crumbs, a bit of ice cream and whipped cream...and that was it. Cocktails and bar staff were great. Service staff was nice but having the plates constantly taken away for my friends while I am still finishing my dish felt like it was more about "getting this to the kitchen so they can clean up and close for the night". Overall I'm sure the restaurant is nicer in regular times, my husband doesn't want to go back to try it because he felt that was quite expensive and didn't deliver.

    Excellent food! Our server was very sweet and attentive. The food is what made the experience complete.... You must try the fried green tomatoes! My only complaint is the wine by the glass options, we have incredible wines locally and the wines on the list were just so so.

    The place is great. Wish it was in Paso Robles, but worth the short drive to Atascadero. Iberico dish was off the map. Cooked perfectly..Seasoned perfectly. Hot to the table. Only other place I know with Iberico like this is in Carmel. My wife had black cod and it was with fried green tomatoes and a Chile Verde sauce. She told the chef Cornell it was the best fish dish she's ever had and she's had plenty all over the world. Highly recommend this place. We'll be back very soon.

    Wonderful evening, larger group, the server was able to keep our glasses full, appetizers, to meal, to dessert moving right along perfectly. Daniel was great and always had a smile on his face. Food was excellent for all 10 of us. Drinks were awesome, lots of selection and some fun special mixes. This is my 5th time there and will continue to support the restaurant. Yummy!

    Our first time there food, service and overall experience were A+. As a local having this place to come enjoy a night out is great. Many restaurants charge above average prices for mediocre food and service, Barley and Boar doesn’t disappoint. I hope this place stays around for a long time.
