    Very nice evening in the beautiful patio. Loved the music, our table was a little close to the speaker otherwise would have been perfect. Great food, service, would definitely recommend Barone's.

    Ambiance is older but nice. The food is delicious and the servings are quite large. Expect to pay around $70/each if you only have one drink each.

    It was our first time there and, based upon the food and attentive service, we will be back! The nightly special was a porcini mushroom ravioli and New York Steak. It was an excellent, hearty choice, especially when paired with the Wedge Salad and a glass of wine. Equally good was the service that Carlos provided. Together, the combination made for a well executed dining experience, with everything swiftly provided, refilled, or served effortlessly. Nice job!

    Our party didn't show up on time for the reservation and the restaurant called the phone number that was listed and asked if we were still coming to dinner. We felt that was very nice of them! They changed the reservation to 45 minutes later and we appreciated that so much. Will dine again when in town!

    Barone's never disappoints. The owners are very integral to the experience as they make everyone feel welcomed. The food is amazing. The staff is attentive. If you are looking for a bargain, this probably isn't your jam, but the experience makes it all worthwhile.
