Loved it! Saw the billboard on Hey 70 and decided to try this place. We were pleasantly surprised! So glad to discover this upscale dining spot with an upstairs lounge vibe (with TVs to watch the games). Superb service and amazing food. You can tell that everyone cares about the guests’ experience. I look forward to visiting again when I’m back in town!

We have dined here many times alone and with friends. The wine list and wait staff are excellent. The menu..please recreate..please. Not vegan or vegetarian friendly in the least. The veggie sandwich was flavorful but the carb adhering to it was akin to wonder bread. French fries crispy but too greasy. Salad selection should be expanded upon.
We really want to support Barrique, but find it difficult to continue to do so without showing some menu creativity.

Absolutely wonderful! It’s so nice to see this area finally get a restaurant as good as this! Their wine selection is great, steaks were cooked perfect. We went back and did brunch, the drinks were very good and the breakfast skillet was the perfect start to the day! Highly recommend!

We ordered a salad that was in the menu and our server told us that the owner that makes wasn’t in so therefore there was no salad. I ordered the wedge salad and didn’t care for it.

Our steaks were Del ious along with fried green tomatoes. My issue was it took us over 45 minutes to be served our dinner and the restaurant wasn’t that busy.

We had one server who was working three tables , one was a party of 8. Our food was cold. It took 15-20 minutes between seeing our server. Slow service, cold food not worth coming back.

This place is awesome. If you're within 60 miles, you should check it out. Goldsboro is lucky to have such a high quality restaurant. We had Fried Green Tomatoes and the Veal, our guests split the chicken. The flavors were phenomenal. Highly, highly recommend.

This is a gem in the middle of Goldsboro. The food was exceptional and the Chef is totally dedicated and skilled in his craft. He even came to our table to answer questions about his fried green tomatoes which were superb. Our waitress was very helpful and constantly attended to our needs. The whiskey bar area upstairs was lively and energetic. Will be there again soon!

Appetizer was good. Then our steaks came. Ordered a sirloin and a filet with lobster cooked medium rare. way over cooked. sent back. steaks then came out way undercooked. waiter said sorry and walked away. Manager came by and said sorry and comp'ed a $7.50 dessert. Steaks cost us $78for 2. I ended up spending $119.00 for a meal we didn't even eat for our 11th anniversary. Will never go back. They did not care. For a restaurant that only serves steaks, they need to get a better chef and a new manager that can correct problems.

The fried green tomatoes were top notch. The chicken tasted great, but was a little dry. The truffle fries were great, but not very truffle-y. The management staff was amazing, and so was the ambience. Will definitely return.

Nice restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. It was mother's day so we had the brunch menu. The food was really good. The site said business casual but we did see people there in shorts and tanks. I saw instruments there and will likely try to make it back when they have a bad playing. I'd definitely recommend.

Steak was under cooked, chicken dry and over cooked. We showed up as a table of 6 and only one other family was in the restaurant. Poor food quality was not a result of the restaurant being too busy when we ordered. Very beautiful interior, has potential, if they can get better cooks in the back. Cocktails are very good. Would go back for cocktails with friends.

My wife and I visited Barrique and while we do not eat at fine restaurants frequently, we do try to visit high quality establishments as often as we can and on special occasions. I would say that overall, I was somewhat disappointed. The food was good, but not great. For a restaurant of this type to thrive in a place like Goldsboro, every plate has to be exceptional. For me, there are better values that are just as close with food that is just as good.

First time at this venue. Small but charming (big city feel) to dining room. Limited menu. Food quality good but not a wow. Seemed very pricey and not good value. Attentive service but no ice for water offered, no bread with dinner.
Portions small for price ($39 for 8 oz filet).

If money no object, nice place. If special occasion and splurging, suggest somewhere else.

We enjoyed our meal at Barrique. I am a total foodie that has eaten at a variety of places across the country throughout my life. I found the service at Barrique to be top notch. Everyone was friendly and made us feel very comfortable and at home. The drink I ordered was the most perfectly mixed drink I have ever had and was well worth the price. I ordered the campanelle seafood du jour pasta and I was not impressed. It was very bland and the little bit of seafood used in it was very cheap (mussels and calamari rings). My husband ordered the pork chop which looked delicious and he said it was. The side of brussel sprouts were delicious and it was enough for us to share. We ended the meal with a crème brulee cheesecake that was to die for! So all in all, I think the menu could use some fine tuning, but we will likely eat there again specifically for the drinks and desserts.

We went to Barrique for Sunday Brunch. My husband was thrilled to hear The Beatles playing when we walked in. We enjoyed fresh French pressed coffee as we waited for our meal which was served promptly and professionally. The brunch skillet and shrimp and grits were fresh, well seasoned and perfect in temperature. This was a special occasion and we spent a little more than we normally would, but it was worth every penny.

Great lol fine e in Goldsbore, sat up stairs, was a little drafty by the door.

Bartender was awesome. His ability as a mixologist is something I never would have expected in such a small town. He could easily be working on a large metroplex with his skill set

Ordered the filet medium. It came out cold but everything else was hot. Kitchen corrected and we moved on.

All in all filet was flavorful, but the bartenders personality made it great

My wife & I had a date night at Barrique’s. We had a great meal. The food was delicious, served in a timely manner, and we had an excellent waiter. Can not say enough about how good the food was. All the staff were courteous and professional. We will be visiting again. Great place to eat in downtown Goldsboro.

Went for brunch this past Sunday, 10 Feb and it was awful. We were sat down and the initial introduction was good. Then waited for 10-15 to be asked about drinks and then water was brought to the table and only four of us received water the other four were neglected. Only to receive water another 10-15 minutes later. At that stop, we asked for coffees and only one cup was brought to the table. At that time we asked to get something to eat and placed an order for two breakfast boards. Waited another twenty minutes for four more coffees to show up along with a simple breakfast board. The server was not attentive at all and within an hour we only received poor quality service and neglect. We decided that the ambiance wasn’t worth it anymore. They took the coffees off our bills and charged us still for the mediocre breakfast boards. Went to IHOP and got better service then this place. One of the servers as we were leaving said come back at midnight, “It’s hoping.” No, we wanted brunch at the time our reservations were. This place was a mess. Truly I hope it was just an off day but it was an awful experience and won’t be coming back.

Hello Christine, We want to thank you for choosing to spend your Sunday with us and sincerely apologize for the experience you had. I understand your frustration and can assure you that the server has been let go. That was simply an off day but nobody should be subject to neglect such as that. We would love to have you back to give you the real Barrique experience! If you would consider giving us another try we can assure you that you will leave pleased! Thank you, Owners of Barrique
