Excellent food (small plates and entrees), very good wine list (by the glass, half bottle, and full bottle - magnum). Definitely worth a visit.

Yes, but we waited for almost an hour for our food due to another large party and they didn’t handle it well

My husband took my Mom and I to dinner for my birthday. Chad was fantastic and helped us navigate the wine flight menu and was very attentive throughout dinner. The food was amazing. We were looking for shareable plates but not mini tapas and this was the exact thing we were looking for. The only issue we had was the noise level as it was a little difficult to hear inside but it wouldn’t stop me from going back. I would definitely recommend Barrique for get-togethers, fun times or just to enjoy some really good food with a great wine list.

This is one of my favorite places to go! Last night I took some friends for their first time! Service was sooo slow! Dinner came at different times.nothing worse that trying to show your friends your favorite restaurant and nothing was right for them! I will be back to the restaurant with my husband but I won’t be bringing new friends until they get it together!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Avondale however I was very disappointed with the Salmon, it was over cooked and dry. I think I will stick to the tuna Tacos

Very, very disappointing. Great concept, and menu had potential to be awesome.... However, it was not. Salmon eggs Benedict were dreadful with cold over-cooked poached eggs and lukewarm tasteless Hollandaise sauce, but the potatoes were piping hot! Wife’s meal was equally as bad. While the meal was truly a bad experience, the service was a nightmare. Our mentally challenged waiter was an inept troglodyte who spoke in a monotone and seemed totally overwhelmed. When my “bottom-less Bloody Mary” sat empty for 10-15 minutes despite waving my hands and asking other employees (who nodded and walked away with vacant eyes), the waiter arrived looking surprised that we were there. When I asked for another Bloody Mary, he just stood there and looked slightly confused. After standing there silent for a minute, he said “yes, sir” and slowly walked away. Ten minutes later I got my Bloody Mary. While the first one was a bit watery and weak, however, the second was so strong I had to dilute with water! When the check finally arrived after an indeterminable amount of time, my patience was gone and my good mood had vanished. When I pointed out that he had charged me for two Bloody Marys rather than one “Bottomless Bloody Mary” the imbecile wanted to argue with me, saying that I had ordered two Bloody Marys. I asked for the manager and nearly wept. 10 minutes later he returned with corrected check. Barrique was so tragically bad it was almost comical.

We have been to Barrique before for dinner and enjoyed it. Then, on this past Sunday we made an impromptu reservation for 3 and was quickly seated when we arrived. Brunch with the bottomless sangrias was amazing! We ordered several dishes for the table to taste and share: Avocado Toast and eggs, Steak and eggs, Waffles and fresh fruit, Breakfast Pizza, and the Nutella French toast. The potatoe hash was nicely seasoned and cooked to perfection. The thick slice of french toast was over toasted which they attempted to correct but my daughter still said was yummy, Needless to say, we thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back for Brunch!

I guess we asked too much of our waiter when we went on July 20. We ordered appetizers, started on them which was good and then ordered other dishes, asking that they be spaced out. All of the other ordered items promptly arrived all at the same time! Resulted in food getting cold and any sense of a decent evening evaporated. Service issues in my opinion.

We had a group of 8 for a birthday and everything was very pleasant. One thing to consider is the style of how they serve the food. They are small plates to share so they will come out at at different timing which can be unusual or unappealing to some. Great service and we will return.

Probably my 6th visit to Barrique. Our server was great, she checked on us periodically but didn’t rush our experience. The room was quite loud. Difficult to hear the other couple we went with. This is a wine place with tapas and the wine selection is good. The food on this night was not stellar. The pretzel Brie bread which normally is done to perfection was tepid with cold cheese in the middle. The spinach beet salad had way too much dressing. Please just put a small amount and then have a small container on the side if we want to add more. The tuna tacos were disgusting. The shells were stale and the tuna smelled as though it was beyond it’s prime. I should have sent them back. Overall, really underwhelmed when I know they can do so much better.

Enjoyed the unique way to try a variety of small bites that were all made well. Ways to enjoy wines by flights or the glass or even small bottles. For older alduts who don't often eat as much as they used to, this is a great dining venue where customers with "foodie" preferences can have a great time out and give up a great experience with a good value. We traveled an hour to get there and it was worth it.

Have eaten here several times & enjoy the sharing portions. Ate outside - delightful. Only downside was our overdone lamb chops! Should have sent them back since we ordered them rare but didn’t bother - crowded Friday night. Next time we will!

The atmosphere was very nice but it was a bit noisy if you prefer something more intimate. The food was delicious but I wasn’t sure if my items were gluten free or not. Wine by the glass a little pricy but still good. Nice bar area. Will go back again sometime.

First off, I'ld like to say the people in my party will probably come back to Barrique. The food was excellent, the restaurant is beautiful and very upscale. Living in Vegas, I was pleasantly surprised at how at home I felt! So I made a reservation for 10 people, and called twice before we came to get a feel for how casual, or not casual Barrique would be, and to let them know that there would probably be more than 10 people. Both staff members were SUPER friendly. The gentleman I spoke to the 2nd time explained that my time of 3:15 was perfect for that many people, because the lull of brunch would be over, and people are usually just drinking at the bar, and the could put tables together if more than 10 showed up, and that's exactly what I walked into. A few people at the bar, and just one table of patrons, who were loud and fun, which I love! The gentlemen at the podium, maybe a manager was nice but seemed perturbed at the same time. The server was clearly perturbed. Maybe they were hoping for a break after the brunch crowd?? Maybe it was rough brunch crowd, and staff was frustrated from that?? I like to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. I was expecting a more welcoming attitude, like the one I got on the phone both times, but that Is not what we got. I gave the server $20 without having a tab(my food and drink was paid for my friends), for having to deal with 16 people, and asking to take pics throughout our 2 hours there. Maybe I'm wrong and she wasn't perturbed, but that's the feeling a few of us got. As I stated, I'm sure my friends in Jax will come back. Maybe give your staff a break in between brunch and dinner so they can recharge? =)
