You no longer have to go Venice to experience an authentic wine bar, as Barrique Venice is ready to serve you. The wine cellar at this place is worthy of the admiration of the most avid of collectors, and the finger foods pair well with your favorite red or white bottle.
Barrique Venice is a great place to go out with the girlfriends, enjoy some nice music and great conversation, all with impeccable service. The soft meat, vegetable and cheese platters are always a hit as well, and are expertly prepared at Barrique Venice. The next time you're out in Venice, head on over for a fantastic time.
Food was very good -- choices were varied and just the right amount. Both apps and entrés were ample and perfectly cooked. Wine was a bit pricey by the glass, but good selection. Service was very pleasant, knowledgable, attentive (without being crying or annoying) and overall a strong read to enjoy Barrique.
Delicious food, great wine list, cozy atmosphere
Food and ambiance reminds me of Italy. Excellent wine list. Everything we ordered was cooked perfectly. Service was awesome.
Barrique is a pleasant surprise. I was looking for a last minute place for an intimate dinner with friends who were visiting from upstate NY. The two-story, yellow building nestled in the trees had a certain charm that drew me to it. My love for good Italian food and wine also piqued my interests. So I decided to take a chance. I am so happy I did.
Our table had two bottles of the George Ceremonial Pinot Noir 2014, suggested by our waiter, and it was one of the best I've experienced in recent memory. We ordered the tuna tartar and the burrata/prosciutto for starters and both were excellent tasting. One of my friends and I both had the signature Tagliolini Rossi, and I have to say I was incredibly surprised by its flavor. My partner had the wild boar ragu(which he loved) and our other friend had the special veal ravioli(also good, but the Tagliolini sort of stole the show). The food and wine are the top reasons to visit Barrique.
The interior is dark and candle lit, with a small outside patio on the upper level with a few tables. It is an intimate venue that reminds me of my best experiences while traveling abroad in Tuscany. The staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and added to the overall joy of the evening. Ending with a chocolate mousse, we all recognized we had just had a special meal.
excellent Italian food and cozy ambiance. Homemade pasta and interesting sauce combinations .Customer service friendly, Italian and genuine. very good wine! Locals favorite.
The food was amazing but our waiter, Michael made the experience great. He was personable, made a great food and wine recommendations and his friendly yet professional banter was much appreciated. We’ll definitely go again!
Excellent service and incredible food.
What a lovely night at Barrique. Definitely a bit fancy for an everyday option, but well worth it for a special occasion or to bring someone from out of town. Would definitely go back if I’m town again.
The BEST! It's our favorite local spot. Always a great vibe, service and food is off the charts. And, the wine selection is confusing- too many great ones to choose from! So great!
Good food and great service. Had a great time.
Very romantic and lovely atmosphere - service was attentive and food was great! Highly recommended!!
Amazing meal and service. Looking forward to the next visit!
Wonderful place wonderful people
Great service and food. Loved their fresh bread and 3 layer dessert.
Everything was incredible. Lovely quaint ambiance
Excellent food and wine selections. Charming ambience.
25 minutes wait beyond the reservation time.
Ordered a salad, served a burrata
Inedible filet mignon
It was a good experience, but we were rushed to order which made the experience not as delightful as usual.
Always great to enjoy Barrique and to bring friends. Thank you Tony for coming in on your day off! The specials were wonderful and everyone loves to enjoy Barrique.
Dinner here was excellent. The food was delicious and the service was great.
Loved the ambiance. I enjoyed the overall presentation. Atmosphere good, service great, and food was excellent.
Awesome dinner! Will definitely re visit this place again!
Great food and personal attention from staff make this place very special.
The ambiance and energy of this restaurant was great. We had quite a selection of dishes;
with the pasta, scallops and seafood. The wine list is extensive and has many great bottles.
Though too noisy upstairs for a quiet romantic dinner; the ambiance, wait staff, food and
wine would more than make up for the noise.
Very romantic restaurant. Very good food, excellent service.
Wonderful Pastias;Entertaining, amiable and helpful service; very good wine list, perhaps a bit too expensive. Food pricing is exceptional value for Santa Monica/Venice
LOVE THIS PLACE... LOVE THE FOOD THE CHEF THE WINE THE WAITERS ALL OF IT
Excellent and cozy space. Friendly staff and authentically Italian dishes.
The menu tried to hard to be different and exotic. We honestly couldn't find anything that sounded appealing and the meals we ultimately ordered were disappointing and weird. We thought it would be an Italian restaurant with some standard dishes.
Chef Antonio Mure still has a great touch at his flagship restaurant that has undergone some name changes but retains its high level of quality. Watercress salad is always terrific so is the crudo, an Italian version of ceviche. The beet based pasta is unique as is the chocolate pasta with wild boar. Grilled salmon was perfect and the wine list, which is quite broad with solid producers represented also has some reasonably priced sleepers. Our only criticism is the noise level, which is pretty intense but the food is so good it makes up for it and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves.
Outstanding food and wine. Wonderful for a special evening with a couple other two.
For fine, pricey, Italian dining the place is way off the mark. The small portion of whipped potatoes and pasta were decent — everything else sub-par. The burrata nothing special at all. The prosciutto was a big portion but not delicate and over stringy. The fish came fillet’d and tasted as thawed and not well flavored. Veal was fatty and cold. And finally both $100 bottles of wine tasted off — i suspect they are not stored properly. Ambiance is great and staff helpful — but without a kitchen the evening couldnt be saved.
Fantastic food and service. It was a first date for me, the server/owner was amazing. The food was wonderful. Such a wonderful evening. Hoping to go back when the Pumpkin Ravioli is back on the menu..
Best scallops I have ever had in my life, and I don't even like scallops. I also had the filet mignon which was perfectly cooked and paired well with the wine. Food was very very good. The only thing I would say is that the restaurant is very loud and the tables are close together. The whole restaurant is inside an old house, and we sat upstairs and it was difficult to hear. Service and food are top notch.
Fabulous ambience. Fabulous service. Food OK. Fabuously expensive. Good grief. We hit close to $300 for 2 people with 1 glass of wine and no desert. Simple Italian. The restaurant was packed on a weekday, so obviously other people love it. We live close by but won't be coming back.
Food was phenomenal! Place is absolutely beautiful and cozy. Please go. You won't be disappointed.
good food, good service, nice wines for a reasonable price. definitely would come here again
From the ambiance, service to the food and wine, everything was amazing. I read all of the great reviews and didn't know what to expect but definitely went above and beyond! It was the perfect birthday dinner! We'll definitely go again!
Well....the atmosphere is very cozy and nice. The service was prompt and capable...the wine very good...I would like to give this place 5 stars, but when I mentioned I was vegan to the waiter (not in an obnoxious way, just asking if there was anything they could do accommodate), he seemed not to know what I what that meant and kiiinda treated me like an alien. I mean, it's not that far out in Venice, CA in 2018 to have a vegan diner...especially in so popular a place. Anyway, he was hesitant to make suggestions or ask the chef if he could come up with anything, although I've requested this at other fine dining spots and they were willing and even enthusiastic to do it. I mean, everyone has vegetables right? It's even cheaper for them and they charge me the same, which I am happy to pay. Whatever. So, I made a suggestion for a substitution and he was like, "Well, I can't recommend that because it won't be the same dish". Fine, I realize that, but kind of unnecessary to say so and also made me feel weird and a little embarrassed. It ended up being very good, but I still was unimpressed by the attitude for a nice restaurant.
Amazing cuisine in a very modern, cozy interior. A wonderful place to take a date or meet with a special group of friends.
