Started with lobster bisque, while tasty and wonderful for a cold afternoon, it was a little on the thin side. However, the octopus, chicharron, brussel sprouts, tuna and fries were excellent. Happy hour drinks means you only pay $5 for beers, $9 wines and $10 cocktails. The heat lamps worked really well for the outdoor seating.

Happy to be seated for our reservation as soon as we arrived. Outdoor seating area is nice with heat lamps but there was a quite boisterous gentleman, overtly tipsy and teetering on drunk, that overpowered the whole area. Our order was taken but obviously never placed, given the same waiter returned about 10-15 minutes later asking if we were ready to order. The amount of food received for a $48 entree designed for two left both of us hungry, though I will say it was very tasty. We’re not tough to please; likely to not return but places deserve a second chance during the pandemic

Outstanding place. Pure gold bc of their outdoor heaters and screens b/w tables ensuring covid safety and measures. I had the lobster bisque and my friend had eggs Benedict for brunch. The taste was gorgeous. The street this is on isn’t too loud allowing for nice conversational ambiance. Another thing - although there is 1.5 hr time limit on a table of 3 people - bc they weren’t too busy they allowed us to sit for almost 3 hr which we really appreciated!

Our third trip back to Bazar in as many weeks was met with the usual high level friendliness from the staff who do their level best to make you comfortable at their curb side seating area. The dishes are tasty and plenty for two which is how we like to share dinner. Definitely try the brussels sprouts (personal fav) but everything is excellent. The bar offers a variety of cocktails, wine and beer as well. Continental flavors without continental food prices.

The food was very good, nice selection. First time indoor dining, felt safe and clean. Only drawback was the service, it was very slow - we had to keep calling the wait staff over for water refills and drinks. Not sure if the bad service was covid related or not though.

The octopus was incredible, and the celeriac puree was oddly our favorite part of the dish. The tuna tare tare was also great. It was really a fun time, even sitting outside in the street. Would highly recommend

Their food here is superb especially the octopus! For brunch they hace a very tasty bloody Mary. The staff is very warm welcoming and accommodating. The outdoor space is limited but once we are allowed to dine inside again you will get the full experience of this venue. They also have an incredible happy hour!

Excellent tapas. Service was good except that the bartender complained about the difficulty of making my drink, instead of simply apologizing for the delay in bringing out drinks. Quiet at lunchtime when not busy but our previous experience is that this restaurant is noisy when busier.
