My waitress was AMAZING!! The service here is wonderful.
Our server Stevie was awesome! She was very polite, helpful, and had a great sense of humour. The scallops and polenta were amazing! We will definitely go back.
Absolutely love their brussels sprouts (sans pork belly) on their happy hour menu - and adore their grilled Octopus (yeah - I know not everyone's cup of tea). Great value happy hour drinks and love these two dishes.
The food on the second time around was subpar the scallop dish in particular was runny with water on the plate and no sun-dried tomato flavoring in the polenta and the broccoli Rabe side was oversalted. Second experience was definitely disappointing
The service was a little slow at first, waiting about 15 minutes to actually place Our drink orders, but after that they picked it up and it was excellent!
Unfortunately due to staffing shortages, it took a very long time to receive our food. Although we really appreciated how often our waiter (can't remember his name but young African American man) checked on us and tried to provide as many updates that were made available to him.
Used to love coming here and food was always great. Must have changed chefs as the food has definitely
Gone down hill, very average. Had the breakfast pizza, which used to be on a fantastic charcoal crust and fully loaded. Tasted like a plain pizza on white crust with an egg on it today. Omelettes we’re sub par and not hot. Plating was worse than a Denny’s, where at least you get what you pay for. Worst of all they’ve switched to pre made mimosas, which used to be the best reason to have brunch here. Pre made mimosa pitchers were sitting around (warming) and made with too much orange juice. Loved it when you could buy the bottle and make your own. Won’t be back.
Extremely slow service. After almost half hour wait from ordering to receiving, burger overcooked and left off cheese. Server was apologetic and offered replacement. I told him no thanks (thinking I would have to wait another half hour).
The alternative was a free dessert. I should have declined knowing how long it would take. It was another 20 minutes. :-(
,First visit was a major fail.
Girlfriend and I went for brunch. Food was amazing and the 1 cent mimosas rocked! Service was great! The restaurant is clean inside and out. We sat outside yesterday on a warm, sunny day. We will definitely be back!
Spectacular food and fabulous service!! The lobster bisque and tilefish special were delicious!
The food and drinks were awful but our waitress was very nice and bubbly. They were short staffed but she was able to keep up.
Wish the brunch was a little different but great food and atmosphere!
Nice place for happy hour dining in the patio
Second time at BM. Hector was very attentive and helpful with being intrusive.
Enjoyed our brunch on the patio. Staff was gracious and flexible to seat us there and pull two tables together to accommodate our group. Food cooked to requested doneness. Really tasty home fries and mimosas!
Brunch menu has more breakfast options than brunch options. Service was great, as well as the food and drinks.
This was my second visit to Barley Mac, and it allowed for venturing thru the menu a bit further. The onion soup was excellent, and the deviled egg appetizers with tiny bacon 'flags' fitted on top were a great starter. As before, hats off to the bartender who never disappoints; my favorite? A highball made with Patron Tequila, lime juice and simple syrup with salted rim. Very refreshing!
Although we intended to have dinner, we decided to have drinks and apps instead. Truffle Mac and Cheese was very good. Meatballs were heavily processed, mushy and delivered cold. Ceviche tacos were absolutely tasteless. Brussel sprouts were burned, making them hard and dry, and were delivered cold. Too bad, really. The dish had some interesting ingredients.
Drinks were great! Food was great!
I just moved to the Rosslyn area of Northern Virginia, and Barley Mac is right around the corner from my apartment and it is undoubtedly a real neighborhood gem! The bartender's work is immaculate and tasty, the food is great, especially their brussels sprouts and Barley Mac burger with truffle fries!
I'll be back again and again!
First time customers at this establishment. Our server was very courteous and prompt! We ordered the scallops and of course the Mac ‘n cheese! It didn’t take long for the food to come out. Both items were delicious! The scallops are on top of a bed of broccoli rob and a sun-dried tomato thing that reminded me of mashed potatoes. My girlfriend and I are not fans of the broccoli rob so we just pulled that to the side (no need to complain like some people do when they don’t like something on their plate). The Mac ‘n cheese was very cheesy and delicious! This is a beautiful restaurant and has outdoor seating as well. We will definitely be going back to this place!!
The mimosas are awesome and they have flavors several.
Excellent experience I would definitely go back again!!
Had a nice lunch here on a Friday. Good food and service.
Pretty good I like the vibe of the place. The drinks were OK presentation was awesome though
The food was so good but I felt bad for them, they were clearly under staffed. I hope they’re able to staff up soon so customers don’t have to wait as long. Other than that it was great. We will go back for the yummy food.
Our waiter was not attentive at all, my friend had unlimited mimosas but only had 3. However the food was amazing!
It was good.
I go to Barley Mac once in awhile and have given them good reviews in the past. Unfortunately had lunch with a friend there recently and had the most overpriced basic salad ever. I got their burrata salad with frisee lettuce, tomato and asparagus for $15. It was small in size and basically looked like a child had prepared it - one large beefsteak tomato cut up in quarters on a few pieces of lettuce with two small asparagus tips and a piece of burrato cheese in the middle. I do not understand how they can charge so much for something so small and basic. I often get their crabcake benedict for $17 which is great. I felt that I thew my money in the garbage having this basic overpriced salad. Very disappointed. Some things they do well, but others - don't bother.
Great customer service, food was amazing. Great location will definitely go back.
Able to sit outside on a lovely evening. Great food, service and cocktails. The Watermelon Sugar and Spice was delicious!
Not inexpensive but very delicious food and excellent cocktails. Grilled octopus and brussel sprout appetizers are worthy of repeat ordering. Very attentive and friendly wait staff.
I loved it, the Pizza was awesome, I forgot our server name but he had colorful hair lol but he was great. I’ll definitely come again
Good Food and service, nice atmosphere, awesome mimosas!
Service was good. It was Father’s Day brunch. My husband ordered the breakfast gnocchi and the restaurant was out of sausage. The alternate recommendation was bacon in the dish. Not sure if this is what made the whole dish extremely salty? We just moved to the area and went to BM 2x so far and had average experiences with higher expectations. Probably won’t be back.
Definitely good for a special treat - food is DELICIOUS, but everything was pretty rich (fried or creamy or buttery or salty or bacony - but of course very tasty)! Could not eat here all the time, but very pleasant occasionally.
Service was a little slow.
Their website advertises make your own mimosas for brunch. It was one of the reasons we chose the restaurant. Our server told us that they no longer have this option. The food was good.
Great location, love the food, and the service is awesome. I will definitely return.
Reservations at 6:30 - seated immediately. Service was excellent. This was our first time as we wanted to try it before our Father’s Day brunch with a large party. We had the summer salad and Kale salad. Both were large and tasty! The salmon dish was excellent and the salmon prepared medium rare. Perfect. My husband had the shrimp and squid ink linguini- large portion and he loved it. Our brunch will be fantastic.
