A little rushed. Our food came before we finished our appetizers. We had a cocktail and we’re going to order a bottle of wine but the food was already there.

We had a very nice evening at Barone’s. We had never sat in the outside dining area. It far exceeded our expectations. There was an AMAZING singer who would absolutely be worth returning for. The only downside was our server. She was there at the beginning to take our order and there at the end to get the tip but she was no where to be found when our meals were taking a LONG time to arrive. A”kitchen is backed up, let me offer a drink or dessert” would have been nice instead of telling us it was our fault since we didn’t order immediately. With that being said, it was still a nice evening.

We love this restaurant and am sorry to see it go. I had the filet with raviolis and it was very good. The meat was especially tender. My husband had the sea bass and it was excellent.

A perfect location if you love outdoor dining with entertainment.
The ambience and outdoor space, cabana seating for larger parties, and mini fireplaces on the bar tables creates and excellent environment.
The host staff is amazing and friendly, and although our first time here, it will not be the last!

I had made a reservation on April 12th for May 8th, as I was taking two friends out for their birthdays. I was very disappointed! When I arrived, there were several people waiting to get in and the restaurant was dark. A couple of the others called and got no answer. We all stood outside for about 15-20 minutes until someone finally opened the side gate. My reservation requested a booth but since we had to sit outside, a booth was not available. It would have been nice if someone had called to let me know, that inside dining was not available. This was suppose to have been a special occasion but everyone was quite disappointed.

My wife, a close friend, and I had dinner here on a Saturday evening. It was a first time for all of us, and we were all very pleased with the experience. Great service and reasonable prices overall. It's a really nice place that is not too formal for casual wear, but also not too casual to get a little dressed up. The only negative was that my steak was overcooked a fair amount (medium well instead of medium rare) but I still enjoyed the whole experience so much that I'll be back regardless.

Exceptional on every level! Food, service, ambiance...we totally felt part of the family and Adriana was fun sassy and made our evening so memorable. We were so over the moon with everything that we scheduled our next visit before leaving...And speaking of leaving, don't leave without hanging out in the indoor/outdoor lounge where there is live entertainment. Great way to wind down your evening. I can' say enough great things of this wonderful restaurant!

Everything was wonderful except our table was next to a wall which was next to the kitchen, and we could hear every time they went in and out of the kitchen. Otherwise, it was awesome, including the bar, which we had a drink there before dinner. Would definitely go back!
