Seems to be dropping in quality. Portions were smaller and a little greasy. Not as fresh as past. Disappointing. The waiter was completely spaced out. Have enjoyed it five or six times in the past. Will give it one more shot. Hopefully was a night off for the restaurant.
Outstanding food and service. Server’s recommendations were excellent.
It was great our 2 x. Dining and it didn’t disappoint food was great and so was service gonna be definitely part of our rotation when we go downtown
It was great!
Great service & amazing ambiance
Great food and service! Nice place for lunch or dinner gatherings.
The atmosphere was strange with a mix between sports bar and trendy upscale bar. The food overall was average. The cocktails were great! Overall, not worth the money in my opinion.
Our server, Cortez, was polite but did not check on us at all. Service was mediocre at best - the hostess was not very cordial either. The dj was fun. We were two tables away from a large and VERY VERY loud group.
Food was pretty good!
What a great brunch! $25 for bottomless mimosas is a lot but we felt that we got our money’s worth and the food was really good! We will definitely be back!
I had a party of 8 on a Saturday night, and we felt as though we were being rushed the entire time. We wanted to relax and celebrate and instead we were finished with a meal and out the door in 30 minutes all because the waiter kept bugging us.
It was great! The 3 of us haven’t gotten together in a couple of years and Barrio was an excellent choice for us!
Sat at the bar and was able to enjoy some great food and lovely ambiance
We had the best Bloody Mary at the bar before being seated at our table. If you like spicy, you will love this one. Then we were seated and greeted by Ashley. It was loud with music but it was also New Year's Day. Lots of different kinds of people. Very busy. Our food came and it was delicious. We would definitely go back. And the best part we can walk to it from our condo.
Amazing food, great service, all around a good time.
Great place with lots of food options. Salsa is super tasty and recommended! The chilaquiles was not was I expected.
Food was good, service was fair. Our server forgot some of our order but we weren’t charged for it either. Declined from when it first opened. Not worth returning.
Always a great place to visit. We are from out of town and have always had the best experiences at Barrio. Excellent food, staff and atmosphere. Highly recommend.
It was an overall great experience with great service.
Excellent food and environment!!! Can’t wait to go back!
The service was great, the food was great and the drinks were great!!!!
So fun! Food and tower of margaritas perfect for our family fun! Ryan was a great waiter
Enjoyed an early dinner with my daughters. We ordered to share the croquettes, salad, esquites and two entrees, the perfect amount of food for four per our servers recommendation. Still Rosa and Jalapeños Cucumber Margarita were very nice!
I only recently discovered Barrio and have now lunched there twice. The food is inventive and delicious. My grilled octopus starter was fantastic. We also enjoyed the queso fundido starter. My friends really liked their entrees as well. The only negative on that day, was the slow service. We were there for 45 minutes before the entrees arrived. That said, I will definitely return as that was not my experience on the first visit.
Love! Great place for a group of friends before going out
Really great food and ambiance.
The service at Barrio has been awful the last few times I’ve been there. I take clients here all the time. That will not happen a note. The service is too poor.
loved it. great for our group of 6 girls. great food & drinks. fun atmosphere. server was great.
We were visiting from out of town. Food and margaritas were great, service was great, and prices were appropriate. My only small complaint was music level.
It was so great. The food and the atmosphere were so amazing.
They accommodated my special request
Great bartenders and servers! Very accommodating for my large group!
Food and drinks were amazing
Our server was dope the happy hour nachos were SO GOOD and the price not so bad for river north
I came here with my friends for my birthday, and we had an amazing service. Everything we ordered was super good, especially the mushroom, fish, and octopus tacos. The chickens al pastor and skirt steak were a little bit dry. The salsa and guacamole were super good though, be sure to order the mango guac and the white habanero salsa. We didn’t get our corn until we finished our meal, but our server apologized and even took them off our bill! The margaritas were strong and very refreshing. Definitely order the pitcher there! Would highly come back again just for the mushroom tacos and guacamole!
I did not necessarily love my food. The server told me the Octopus tacos were the best on the menu. They were really spicy, but not a ton of flavor. I would not order them again. The corn and brussel sprouts sides were good. My first margarita was good and the second was so strong I could not drink it. Just inconsistent.
Food and server knowledge of menu very good. Service was not good. Too long of wait and lack of follow up. It wasn’t that busy. I think server had too many tables or was lackadaisical.
We came here for dinner on a Saturday night. Nice waitress who had good recommendations like the margarita tower. Great food and a nice atmosphere
Had a great time. Food and service was excellent. We had a family of ten and sat in a booth that fit us all and was wonderful and private.
Demasiado caro considerando la calidad de la comida. Además, pretendíamos comer un brunch pero aparentemente no ofrecían menú de brunch los viernes. Servicio fue aceptable.
