We visited it again this evening for our wedding anniversary. The staff was super attentive with fast, polite, and competent service. Everybody remembered to wish us "Happy Anniversary", and they also offered us two complimentary glasses of champagne, as well as "the anniversary discount" of 10%. The wine suggestions from the host were excellent, and the food (as usual) was outstanding. The appetizers (Pan Seared Scallops served on a bed of Parmesan Fondue and beef carpaccio), the main courses (12 oz. Grilled Dry-Aged Rib-Eye with Arugula, Shaved Parmesan and an Aged Balsamic Dressing and the Atlantic trout) and the dessert (panna cotta) were outstanding, on par with a good Italian restaurant IN ITALY, which is NOT an easy find in LA. Will come back for sure. Highly recommended

An unexpected experience that was superb. Amazing food, great service, and beautiful ambience; quaint and cosy. A must try if you’re in the area! Best of Venice in my opinion.

Barrique never fails to amaze me and my boyfriend! Everything on their menu is to die for (scallops especially!), wine selection is great, it's fine dining without being too pretentious (rare in LA!), ambiance of the house-patio is so charming. Will come again... and again... and again! Thank you to Barrique and their wonderful staff!

Message to the Owner


I just wanted to make you aware of the drop in service that occurred on Valentine’s Day.

Making a 10:30 reservation arriving at 10:35, I realized later I had received two text messages from the host at around 10pm that my table was ready.
I was greeted by our waiter, upon asking about the Super Tuscan by the glass I opted to get a bottle on the table and start looking thru the menu as this was the only reservation available and we had been waiting all day to eat.
I said “I’ll have a bottle of that”
He said “Of what?”
“The wine we were just talking about”
It became apparent he was not listening to me at all...
I had to show him on the menu what wine and I thought he probably wasn’t describing the correct wine to me???
I asked for ice cubes for the water (never came and additionally our waters were not filled once)
Once our waiter returned with the wine I had a few questions about the menu, I started to ask as another waiter came and took his attention and he literally walked away from me as I was talking to him.
4 minutes later management aggressively
Came to our table letting us know the kitchen was closing so I rapidly ordered for the table... we had been ready to order and no one understood what he was obviously so upset about.
He returned to the table 45 seconds later not remembering what we had ordered so I politely let him know what our order was again.

No one did a single check in on our table (3 courses and wine service)
no one filled our waters.
We pored all our own wine.
Our waiter marked position two who had ordered a steak with one steak knife as if a remark for the table was unnecessary, a backwaiter came and took our silver trying to remedy the situation but our food arrived before he could get back with the mark. As I’m sitting at one of the highest rated Italian restaurants asking for silverware for entree, I could tell the staff were tired and unfocused. I became confused as to why I was able to book a 10:30

It doesn't get more authentic than Barrique! Between the unique and homemade pasta selection, the incredible wine list and the Italian wait staff you'll feel like you've been transported to Italy! I tell everyone it's the best Italian food in Los Angeles.

We're were on the upper balcony. Some street noise, but fairly quiet and private. Service was excellent and appropriately timed. Octopus app, branzino and taglietelle ragu were all fantastic. Nice wine options. Note that as a wine bar, Peroni is the only beer and there are no cocktails. We will definitely go back.

Came here with my boyfriend for my birthday. The food was INCREDIBLE - they’re known for their beet homemade pasta/ragu dish and it’s for good reason- it was delicious! We also got the ahi tuna app and filet mignon - all amazing. Highly recommend going here for any special occasion or just getting out of the house in covid. It was very safe, the ambiance was great and their outdoor space has cute lights and was perfectly set up! Book!

Overpriced and Underwhelming. The flavors were bland in both the duck dish and their signature pasta. The reduction used for the duck did not do well in masking the fattiness of the duck and the vegetables were nothing short of just being steamed veggies. Very disappointing for a $40 dish. Their signature pasta, although tasty, was also a very bland bolognese.

I came here to treat my girlfriend for our 6 month anniversary, and our dining experience was just an overpriced, underwhelming culinary journey. I wouldn't recommend anyone to Barrique (specially for the price) and I wont be back as their are endless other great restaurants to go to in the same price range and get superior quality.

This place is next level. It may be the best Italian restaurant in LA, definitely on the west side. The service is so warm and hospitable... you feel very welcome and it makes a huge difference.

The food is creative, delicious and presented beautifully. They also did a great job creating real ambiance and sense of place with their outdoor tent.

We started off having the same server as last time, Miguel. He was great, tipped about 40%. This time about halfway through he disappeared (not like him, maybe he got reassigned or had to leave or something) but then it seemed as though we were having to flag down a manager or busser to get anything done. A little disappointing even though the food was great and ambiance gorgeous.

Our waiter Michael was amazing! All the servers were great! So fun and helpful about the menu and everything he recommended was perfect! I am still dreaming about the quail pasta, the halibut, the linguini with lobster-- all perfection! And the pistachio dessert! The ambience is quaint but lively.
Our only issue was with the person who seated us. At first, he was going to seat us at a table that was in in the corner under the stairs, which truly lacks any ambience. When I asked if we could sit somewhere else, that the particular table was not a great location, he was rather rude and annoyed with me. He led us upstairs to a great table but was not very nice about it.
That was unnecessary but our waiter and the amazing food made up for the moment of unpleasantness. We will definitely return!

Nice quiet outdoor patio. COVID comfortable. Excellent food and very good service. Food a little pricey, but I'm certainly not going to complain about that right now. But that $35 corkage still stings.
