Good was ok. Had better tacos else where. We felt rushed at every point from ordering drinks to appetizers and to main course.
The waiter was attentive And food and drinks came out in a timely manner. We ordered guacamole salsa and chips as an appetizer. Guacamole salsa were fresh The the chips were served warm. I ordered the mushroom tacos and they were delicious. I was with three other women who also ordered various tacos and they enjoyed them as well. I also really appreciate that the tacos are served on corn tortillas. I only wish that really high-quality best of class oil’s an organic products were used.
Amazing service. The food was good. I love fries and there's were great. The ambience is nice.
Different foods and great service along with good sound track!
They didn’t seat us because it was raining and gave us no warning. The reservation didn’t have a weather contingency on it, and we didn’t receive any communication except to confirm our reservation.
When we got there they acted like it was our fault. We thought since they confirmed our reservation they might have tents outside. What if we had driven down from the burbs for it? What if we spent money on an uber to get there and back? It isn’t that hard to send an automated email or write on the reservations that they close the patio if it rains
The food was phenomenal, but the restaurant was suuuuuuper loud so I would not recommend for a date or business meeting. Certain starters were overpriced, but the food was so delicious.
We loved our food and margaritas. I guess I'm getting old because the music was too loud for us. It was impossible to have a conversation. It's my understanding that the volume is only that loud on Friday and Saturday nights. Our future visits will not occur on Friday or Saturdays.
food average. Notice level/music level was ridiculous. It was a good playlist…just so loud you couldn’t hear the person across the table or your server.
Food was great! Service was really really really slow. Our reservation was at 3:30 and sat down closer to 4 didn’t leave until 6:15 because the waitress was disappearing for long periods of time.
We ended up sitting at the bar because it was chilly outside! The bartender was great! The food was great so glad to be able to eat there!!!
Phenomenal all around—food, drinks, service, ambiance, everything!
Both my friend and I got sick from the food.
Excellent service, large portions and good food. Would recommend.
Amazing time. Great food. Great amosphere.
A little too loud, but amazing guacamole and tacos!
We had an AMAZING time at Barrios! As usually the food is delicious the drinks bomb!
Every bite of food we had at Barrio seemed to make us gasp in amazement. Best octopus tacos around. 10/10
Fav place in the city!
Too loud. Please tone it down. We had to screen to talk to each other.
Went to celebrate my Birthday! They have a table limit of 6 but I have 6 friends so that made the number 7. They split us into 2 tables right across from each other, which I was very grateful for. The music was live and energetic! it took our server a few times to get to our table, but after the food and drinks were brought out it everything was great. The tacos were the bomb! Would definitely go there again!
The “happy hour” wasn’t much of a happy hour.
Thus play loud
Great experience! Amazing food and good drinks.
Music was a little loud
Server rushed us through the entire experience. Everything else was great.
Definitely recommend the lemon ricotta pancakes! They were so fluffy and delicious. Also tried the chicken al pastor nachos which were just as tasty.
Amazing food as always, fun music and the server was extremely kind and attentive
Very rushed service. They brought food within minutes of us ordering so it must have all been premade. Felt like a casual counter service place rather than an actual restaurant. The steak tacos and brisket tacos we ordered were charred/burnt to a crisp. It just felt like they wanted to rush us through the meal so they could seat the next group and it wasn’t pleasant or enjoyable at all. There’s also zero social distancing; the place is packed to capacity. The waiter actually kept taking off his meals every time he would come to talk to us which is exactly the opposite of what he should be doing. We will not be back.
Great atmosphere to go into whether it’s to eat or just to have drinks. The food is delicious!!
Enjoyed it, food was good. The Carnita Fried rice was delicious. Noise level was a little high, but then again I'm pushing 50.
Barrio brunch is always a blast!
Ando service and even better food! The churros and fried chicken are to die for!
Date night w/hubby - great food & ambience! Our server Jay was amazing.
The food was delicious and the cocktails were so fun! We loved our server and overall had a great time celebrating!
Very recommendable!! The food was delicious and the service excellent
Very rude servers
Service was fast and pleasant. Food was flavorful. Cevichè not what we expected nor traditional. More like tacos. Ask for details before ordering and know what to expect. Grilled octopus was our fave!
Barrio has amazing food with an even better ambiance! Came with a large group and all of our requests were accommodated. Will be back for more great food and drinks!
Me and my plus one got bottomless mimosas for our allotted time, and our server only filled our glasses like three times. I asked for extra juice to even out the champagne and our server never gave it to us. . .
Other than that the food was really good.
