Great place but server took awhile to become friendly.
Great location and restaurant. Loved the food and drinks they were out of one of the fish options on the menu and didn’t tell us until we ordered, they did figure out a substitute.
It was my birthday and the server forgot to bring my birthday dessert. He brought everyone else’s though with out any utensils and never checked back. Margarita’s were super disappointing. The atmosphere was awesome and we had a fun. Probably won’t go back though.
Wonderful place and our server was very tentative and awesome the whole time, overall great service. The taco’s was very tasty!
Overall a very nice experience. Food and wine were great. I was having a dinner with family in which we were trying to organize a family party, and it was noisier than I would have liked. In hindsight, I should have chosen a different place. But we go thru it. The staff were great, as they saw we were talking and didn't interrupt. Overall I liked the place and would go back, but probably not for something where the conversation was important.
Excellente adresse et une cuisine excellente. L'ambiance le soir est très cosy et agréable. On regrette un peu que l'endroit est un peu bruyant.
We had a round of drinks and chips and salsa, we ordered and the wait for food was fairly long, two parties at our table ordered the same dish, when the food was delivered the second dish didn't come, we waited patiently and then we had to wave someone down, when the server came over he said his mistake he accidentally only ordered one.
By the time it came we had all shared and were done eating.
He comped her meal but its disappointing for it to happen but then to take so long to get another that the other three meals had to be shared, It is what it is... we will still go back
Wonderful dining options, was disappointed when the bill was presented with a automatic 20% gratuity. Wish it was told or stated before we came in. Other than that wonderful time.
Happy hour was amazing. Fast and great service with delicious food.
Okay experience. Rather empty at lunch time. They did take soup back when I told server it was too salty. 2-1 taco Wednesday is a good deal.
Great food and atmosphere
Great spot for date night. Only feedback: turn down music in booths 😄
I love el Barrio food and the staff was very welcoming. If I had not been at el Barrio before today would have been my last time there... we were there for lunch today and the restaurant was not full. not sure what happened but it took over 1.5houra to get our food out and when we got it it was cold. I brought my family, my mom and my mother in law for what we thought would be great meal. Instead it took almost two hours to get us our food after we ordered. 2/6 plates were warm and the rest almost room temperature. The flavor was good. This was a disaster of a day... not sure what happened in the kitchen..
This was our first visit to Barrio and it will definitely not be our last. The food had such a great combination of flavors and was so well done. We sampled many of the tacos and a few appetizers, my personal favorite was the Roasted Beet Taco...Delicious!
Service was subpar. Could have been because service charges were already included.
There was a hair in my boyfriend’s food unfortunately which put a sour taste in the whole part of 8’s mouths.
Service was marginal and noise level was so loud we could barely talk without yelling. Food was ok to good but greasy and too dark of lighting to really see
Loved the food, service and atmosphere. It was a little loud but tolerable. Would definitely go again and recommend!!
The food was good except the mushroom enchilada it was not the greatest. The seating area we were seated in was very dark and we couldn’t see our food. Overall the food was good and ambience was moderately loud but it’s worth a try. The frose sangria is very good and the guacamole and chips were great!
Went there on NYE. Everything was amazing besides the service. They seemed to want us out the door ASAP besides the fact that they didn’t close until 12. I’ve been there other times and the service was impeccable so I would still recommend...just not for NYE.
Nice table by the window, wonderful server, good food.
I used to love the food here but now find it very inconsistent. On this day, the chips were stale, my salad was undersized in an awkward bowl, and my friend didn’t love their tacos.
Service was not upto par. Took way to long (over 30 min) for us to get our drinks and appetizers...
Great place for drinks and tacos after work (:
It’s obvious the servers feel no need to give good service when gratuity is automatically included at 20%. They showed no desire to be friendly or helpful.
True place is nice and welcoming, food was good but a bit spicy, caveat sweet corn in almost every dish, Mexican food barely used sweet corn, drinks were great and tasty. Server took forever to take our order after we order drinks. Too noisy, almost impossible to have a conversation, this is mainly due to the design of the boots which amplified the sound.
The food was cold for some of us when it arrived. 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
You have to try the chorizo taco. It was life changing
Spices were perfect.
Super friendly server with just the right amount of attention.
The service was awful. We sat down and didn’t get asked for our orders until almost 30 min after sitting. I will not go back
I would have loved to go...restaurant was closed and not indicated on app!!!
We had a last-minute reservation for a large party of friends home for the holidays. The staff did a great job accommodating last minute for a party of 18+ people. The service was great and they were on top of getting drinks and food out to us quickly.
My mother in law was in town and we wanted to take her some place new. The food was great!
The food was fantastic. The service was spotty. The noise level was pretty high. The lighting where we were was pathetic. We enjoyed the dinner but would have enjoyed it more if the waiters had been just a little more attentive and there was better lighting where we sat (it was brighter in other parts of the restaurant).
service very slow and waiter didn't seem to care. got drink order wrong even though it was pointed to on the menu. mediocre food for the outrageous price. lots of breaking banging and crashing, very noisy.
Another great time with good drinks, good food and good service. Always love dining at Barrio!
Great ambiance and wonderful food. Overall it was a good experience but the restaurant was so loud that it was difficult to have a conversation.
Great service, provided us a quiet business meeting booth. Food was great and the atmosphere was top notch.
My roommate and I went as an end of the week celebration and had a wonderful time! Unfortunately, we were sat next to a rather large party so the noise level was rather high but that is no fault to the restaurant. The food was excellent!
It was a little dark and a little expensive but overall a great / fun / delicious place and we will definitely be going back!
