Took an hour and a half to get food. Pasta carbonara was not as described and was in no way carbonara- had no bacon no peas. Gnocchi bolognese was burned.
Chocolate dessert was melted basked for dessert and check to go because we had somewhere to be. And we’re told they couldn’t pack dessert. It took twenty more minutes to get check

This was our first visit and upon arrival, there was no one to greet us, seat us, etc. We didn’t know if we were supposed to seat ourselves and if so, were we supposed to be upstairs or downstairs. After making two trips up and down stairs, we finally flagged someone down to ask. Food was great, but after waiting for over 2 hours for our meal, anything would have been good. Even the salad was an hour and a half wait. Sat through not one, but 2 Tom Petty concerts on their projection screen. Thank goodness we are fans, or else this would have been even more miserable. Staff were useless except for the one waiter we had. He seemed to be doing everything for everyone else. He may have even cooked the food! Don’t waste your time or money here unless you would like to have many, many cocktails prior to your meal.

Had the most terrible experience the other night. We had reservations for a party of nine at 6:30P and didn’t leave until 10:00P. The service was terrible, so bad, we will never be going back there again. The service has been terrible for months, the restaurant should close its doors.

I made reservations because I had some special people that I was entertaining. First they only had Sweet Tea. Not Unsweetened. Hello you make tea then add sugar. Then only soda they had was Diet Pepsi. One guest ordered plain burger......they didn't even include a side. We had to ask for it. For the price it was a disappointing evening

Over a year ago my wife and I had a bit of a bad experience for our dinner meal but it appears that those experiences are gone. We dined at Barrique the day prior to Valentines day and it did not disappoint. We were seated prior to our scheduled reservation and greeted by a welcoming host and a energetic waitress. There were at least 6 other couples seated downstairs and it was as if we were the only ones there. The kitchen was visible from our table and there was a flurry of organized efforts happening with the meal preparation. They had prepared a choice of meals for that evening the included paired wines/spirits and desserts. the food was prepared wonderfully and tasted great. For a Valentines meal the restaurant was very efficient at providing a wonderful meal. Thank you to Barrique for a great experience. If you have not been there, it is a must visit.

Barrique was absolutely worth the money! The food was fresh and very good. The service was excellent and our waitress was amazing! It is on the pricier side but if you want an elegant, delicious meal, Barrique is the place! I would definitely recommend and will be going back!

Most everything was fine except these:
1) We sometimes waited for 10 to 15 minutes for refreshes, new drinks or our ordering process.
2) Seems that the bar area was low on several drinks and we tested out a few. The couple that we really liked, (at least over the other choices), were not replenished. If you're gonna offer a beverage, make sure you have more than one so the clients can order more. Having to order different drinks, many of which at least I, was not familiar with, took away from the whole experience.

I don't know how they prepare the shrimp in shrimp Carbonara, but it was the best I've ever had. Same goes for the Brussel Sprouts Pan-seared in Thai chili & Bacon - exceptional. Loved the Caesar Salad too. Just a hint of anchovies - perfect. The other members of our party enjoyed their pork chops and Gnocchi Bolognese. Our server was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Hope you get to meet the gracious owner, Eli Wuest. We enjoyed an extremely pleasant evening, and will certainly be back.

I wanted to love this place as I’ve waited a while to actually eat here. It is a beautiful location. When I arrived there was only one other diner in the restaurant as it had just opened for dinner. We ordered a pasta dish and a burger. After over 40 minutes no food had arrived and our waiter kept stopping by to say food would be out shortly. We actually stopped him to say if not soon then we would have to take it go as we had tickets to an event. Finally my daughters Pasta arrived but still no burger. She had completely finished eaten and plate cleared before my food came. I ordered my burger medium well and it was at best medium rare. I ate around the edges. The fries were cold and mushy as if they had barely hit a fryer. The waiter had a manager come talk to us and initially said I cannot comp your food. She said there were problems with the kitchen equipment which I wish I had been told so I could have made a different choice. We were given a $20 dollar gift card and a 10% off coupon for our dinner nightmare. The drinks we had were really good but the food I cannot rate nearly as highly. We had a really bad experience and we are not restaurant complainers. I would have totally been willing to give them another chance if the manager had at least said let us take care of the food and we would have paid for the drinks.

Unfortunately the food was mediocre and they really didn't seem to have a solid system in place. For the price....which was 113 for my boyfriend and I. Everything should have been on point and it just wasnt. It was his birthday and he was disappointed. They did try to make amends with a free slice of cheesecake that was extremely tiny. The ambiance was nice but its just a story of the little engine that could....not.

Table was extremely wobbly. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The Charcuterie Board appetizer was pretty good but the main courses we had were average at best. Seafood Risotto was very runny and the other meal was a breaded meat that was super soggy due to the sauce that had been poured over it. The dish appears to have been removed from the online menu (can’t recall the name). Expected more based on what I had heard about the place and given the prices. Would suggest a slightly expanded menu.

Our waiter was nowhere to be found for most of the evening. He got our order wrong and one of the corrected dishes was cold. We were able to get other people to help us with ordering wine and to correct the wrong order. I was very disappointed since this was our first visit and I had high hopes. Since it was a prefixed menu for Valentine's Day, we had to give a 20% tip and our waiter did not deserve it. We were in the first seating and one of the dessert choices was already sold out. Will not be returning.

Reservation was for 5:30pm. We were seated timely but it took 3 hours to finally get all the courses And they ran out of the desert we ordered at 5:30 pm!!! Not sure what happened this Valentines Day...last time we had great service...timely service...and they didn’t run out of anything. Will not be going back unless it is just on a regular night. Service and food are usually excellent. Very disappointed with the Valentine dinner.

This was our second visit. The first time was outstanding with great flavor in every dish. We were very pleased with everything.

This second time was very mediocre. The food was underwhelming all around.

We’ll give Barrique another chance and hope it was just an off night. It is a great venue and we want it to succeed.

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.
