The food was good and the $25 mimosa was amazing ! Our waiter was amazing shoutout to derek !! The energy and tunes were dope. i would definitely tell them to keep the vibe and follow the flow. But other than that it was a great time, and i’m definitely coming back.

None . Made a reservation . It was confirmed by Opentable and when we arrived the restaurant was closed . Luckily the restaurant next door was open and more than accommodating .

The music was too loud to carry on a conversation which was a bit annoying. Very limited menu but the burger was pretty good.

Ive been a fan of Barnaby's since it opened but when my boyfriend and I went last weekend I was sorely disappointed with the drink menu. The selections were very blah and when I ordered a Sazerac, I was surprised to see that it came on the rocks. Needless to say, that drink has always arrived straight up. I didn't send it back figuring that the bartender didn't know any differently, but that together with the disheartening nature of the menu left a bad taste in my mouth. Sadly, I won't be returning any time soon.

I went to brunch with friends for bottomless mimosas. Had the most amazing time!!! 10/10 would recommend. Jason is an awesome host and does not skimp on the refills!

I gathered friends to eat lunch. We were disappointed that brunch was the only option and the online menu wasn't actually available until after 4pm. We searched for better variety.

They are using an abbreviated menu but there is enough variety and all dishes are large portions and quite tasty. Our server was very attentive and had some good recommendations.

I loved my drink but unfortunately my friend did not like hers and I had to send my steak back to cook it more as it was rare. My friend also found a long strand of hair in her ceaser salad/sent back and given a new one. My other friend had no issues.

This was one of our first “post quarantine” reservations and they did not disappoint. The staff seemed genuinely happy to be there and serving. The food was good and the overall experience was relaxed and safe. This was our first time there but we’ll definitely be back!

This was a great surprise. We had never been here before, the food was really great and everything has a unique twist. The wait staff was great -kind and attentive. I would definitely return to try some of the other choices; it was hard to decide.

Food was average. I had the salmon, cooked a little too much. My date had gnocchi & short rib special. Not a lot of meat.
Our waiter was very attentive, nice ambience & the drinks were good. Not horrible but not exceptional either.

My kale salad was not as described at all. It came with a tiny piece of salmon on top with literally a dusting of what was supposed to be goat cheese. Even though it was moderately priced, it was a big disappointment. Kale was tough also. The calamari had a fishy taste. My husband's pasta Bolognese was disappointing as well, and the Cosmo's were too sweet.
Also, the valet parked my car up on a curb on the side street and told me where to go get it. Never again.

Good food but service was likened to a restaurant that just opened. Server did not know how meals were prepared, servers helpers taking food to wrong tables, no one checking on status of meals.

It was appalling that you charge $0.50 for Parmesan cheese to top my rigatoni bolognese.
The manager should have tried to please us by offering a coffee or dessert. Instead we left with an annoying and shocking reaction to a ridiculous charge. When told about the extra charge, I declined buying it. When the manager came by to offer it free of charge, it was too late. The food was almost gone.
I suggest, you rethink that $0.50 extra charge.

While our server was good, our food was not. My friend and I ordered the oysters to split as an appetizer. They came out of the kitchen super fast, and when I looked at them and tasted them, I knew they were prebreaded, frozen, then popped in the oven. They were tasteless! The server assured me they were not. I disagreed. I also had the black burger, it was also tasteless. My friend had a cod dish, and she also said it was not good. They ran our of coffee mugs and we were served coffee in a water glass! The only thing that was good was the warm brownie dessert. Never again!

Stopped in for lunch . Service was excellent. Food options were great. The rigatoni bolognese was delish. Husband had the black bean burger and enjoyed it.. had the brownie desert to top it all off , excellent. I would return.
