Barrio is a restaurant that combines Mexican cuisine with innovative craft cocktails in an energetic urban environment.

Our menu takes a modern approach to Mexican Cuisine, with an emphasis on fresh, seasonal ingredients. To deliver the highest possible quality, we make most of our ingredients on-site, from our fresh tomato salsas to our handmade tortillas to our slow-smoked pork.

Our cocktail and spirits program has been recognized as one of the strongest in the Puget Sound. In addition, we offer an excellent selection of beer and an array of wines (both by the glass and bottle).

I always make a reservation here and have been seated in the same cozy booth with my bf each time, which is nice. My only complaints are prices for salsa and chips- for their overall prices, shouldn’t salsa and chips be free?
The tacos are huge and always good. Small guac is $6. Bf is 6’2”/200#, so that is like 3 bites for him. Kind of a bummer. Service is always top notch, tho, and if slow due to being busy, they hustle later. The little booths behind the bar are cute and private and help with the noise level.

It was so dim where we were. I also didn’t like the service. It was pretty rushed and rude.

We were very disappointed in this reservation experience. When we arrived, they did not have our changed reservation time in the system (I originally booked 7pm and changed to 5:30pm earlier that day). We showed the host our reservation confirmation email showing the time change from opentable and he said they still didn't have it in their system and he didn't have a table for us. He said they had no availability until 7pm (though they had at least 5 open 2 person tables that remained open the ENTIRE TIME we were there) and there was nothing he could do. He was very dismissive and offered us no solution and walked away to assist another guest. I approached him when he returned to the desk to ask to speak with a manager and he said that they had a no-show guest and if we waited a little while, we could be sat at their table. The way the host handled this situation was very dismissive, rude and very disappointing.

Went for a date night. Good ambiance and friendly, attentive wait staff. Food is good but NOT the best Mexican restaurant on the Hill.

I love Barrio but the noise levels did prevent conversation. It is, “exciting” but personally I’d prefer if they toned it down. We measured it at 88 decibels on an app.

Service was just ok. Felt rushed between drinks, appetizers and mains and the building was rather empty.

Our waitress didn’t seem engaged. The menu has changed over the years, I was disappointed in the lack of entrees. The cocktail menu came off as gimmicky to me, who wants to spent a lot of time reading through a list of ingredients when you first sit at a table, I’d rather visit with my guests. Dinner and drinks for 3 with tip $175, I could have done better elsewhere for $125.

Overall the restaurant was great! This was our first time stopping by and enjoy brunch. The drinks were top notch! The salsa we bought was not very spicy, which was a let down. The food we ordered was well prepared. Our waitress was amazing! She was friendly and helpful.

Disappointing meal at Barrio. We were a group of 7. None of the dishes ordered were particularly good. My carnitas dish was burnt. The trout dish my husband ordered was disappointing. Very loud corner table made conversation difficult.Waiter was friendly and good. The prices seemed high overall.

Barrio used to be a great place to get good Mexican/Southwest cuisine. Everything has shifted to ala carte and portions are much smaller. Expensive for what you get. Service is spotty; sometimes great and sometimes lousy. Most staff appeared to be bored. The tortillas used for the tacos are some of the worst I have ever eaten; gooey and under-cooked.
I hope things get better but I won't be back until they do.
