See you at La Barra!
The staff was great, they did an awesome job helping me celebrate my fiancés bday.
This was my third time going to this restaurant and to be fair the 2x before were great, but this time they gave my reservation away more to the point they overbooked their restaurant and waited until 15 mins before my reservation to call and inform me that I could not dine there. They then sent me to another restaurant with terrible food. I traveled a hour to get to la barra because I liked them. I will notgo there again or recommend them. Poor poor service.
Overall good food& service. Didn’t realize until after we left, they charged us for a higher priced mixed drink instead of a glass of wine.
Food was outstanding, Service provided by Sam was really great. We’ll be back
Normally i would rate higher. I think some of the servers or bus boys weren’t attentive as they need to be and have been in the past.
Great food and Awesome service!!!
Recently moved downtown and La Barra is always top on our list to visit when we are back in the area! Love sharing an appetizer, salad and pizza!
Great food great wine live band too loud. We will return.
The food was excellent. Great value, will definitely be going back.
Order 2 pan pizzas, both came burnt, the sausage toppings on our pizza was burnt as well as the side of the pizza. The other pizza was burnt on the bottom. Our server Joseph was too busy accommodating other tables to even come by to refill our water. We told him we were celebrating a birthday which he completely forgot about and brought our bills. And our bills were all wrong too. The place was very warm too and loud. Don't think we'll go back at all.
Introduced another business associate to the infamous LB; great 🐔parm as always...
Nice place to get together with friends. Great appetizers.
Prosciutto wrapped chicken 🐔 under the radar but fantastic.
We’ve eaten at La Barra 8-10 times now and while the food has always been very good the same cant be said about their service. On this occasion we waited 10 minutes beyond our Open Table reservation time, while there were several available tables. We had to ask for bread (not sure what policy is but). We ordered a salad which never came and then were served what appeared to be a child’s portion of Spaghetti & meatballs, for $19.
Suppose to be better deep dish pizza in area. Toppings were good, but crust mushy and not cooked through. Stick with the specialty pizzas. Good wine choices from Italy - why go to Italian themed restaurant and have California wine?! Wait staff very attentive. Kitchen very slow. Don't need to go back.
Love this place.
Too busy. Not enough staff. 615 reservation. Seated at 630. Waited 30 mins for drinks (after bread was served) and another 45 mins after that for food to arrive. Food arrived 745 which was 90 mins after reservation time. Kids we’re unhappy. The crust on thin crust pizza seemed prefabricated not fresh. Would probably not come back.
We were seated when we arrived. It was not crowded but one large table. We only saw one waitress who took a while to come to our table. We ordered our drinks, appetizer & meals right away seeing the place was starting to fill up on a Saturday night. The main dining room where we were seated became looked very chaotic.
It took some time to get our drinks. When our appetizer was brought we had to ask this server for napkins & plates. We never saw our waitress again until we asked a busboy if he could have have the waitress bring the check.
Hands down the best pizza in Chicago. A must go!!!
Just some casual dining for our Halloween anniversary on a lousy weather day.
Great service with Mediterranean salad, dough rewards and of course Mountain Dew...
Excellent and delicious small plates. Great desserts.
Great food- always appreciate the dough rewards and service.
I don’t was to disparage the place too much, it’s nice, but our food wasn’t great and our poor server was working almost every table. It’s hard to be efficient in that situation, so everything took longer than expected and we were pressed for time. The drinks are good, the appetizers served our table of 5 well. The chicken parm was underwhelming, and the fettuccini alfredo, meh. Most disappointed in the gnocchi. I’m a gnocchi snob. Had high hopes for it based on the feature position on the menu and the description. It didn’t measure up by any means at all. Most likely would not revisit. Too expensive for low caliber pastas.
Love your location in Riverside - but Your Oak Brook location needs some serious help. I want to like this location but every time we try the Oak Brook location it’s either the food, or service. I know it’s not just me - there were hardly any customers in the restaurant on a Sunday - why?
Doreen and Alicia played tap out i- formation with fantastic service.... ⛹️♀️
We were greeted and seated promptly. Our waiter was excellent. We had two small plates that were great, especially the brociole. We had a pizza that was very good. There was a small delay in getting our dessert. One of the bartenders came over and spoke with us and was very pleasant. We would definitely eat here again.
We were there to celebrate a friends 60th birthday. So many in the group had yet to try labarra and I know everyone will be coming back again. Great food and great service!
We checked in with the hostess that we were early but wanted to sit at the bar. The bar was not busy; we were sitting at the end where a register screen was but the female bartender didn’t seem to want to give us much attention. The male bartender must not have been able to cross into her area? She took an order for appetizers but never gave us plates or flatware so the runner who brought the food went back to get, after we asked him. The hostess never approached us at our reservation time so we noticed we were now late; thankfully there was still a booth.
Excellent date night venue. Tables overlooking small lake, very romantic. Small menu but very good food. Look forward to coming again. LaBriola has great reputation and has been my favorite for years. I knew this would be a memorable first date dinne. Thank you.
Really exceptional service. My husband's fries were not crisp. They came out with a fresh batch that was much better.
The ambiance was great- we sat outside by the pond and fountain. The small plates were a great variety for our party of four- our main dishes were very good- our waiter was super friendly!
Pizza 🍕 time - super sweet thin crust w black olives & pepp.
Great night! Thanks Alicia
Great food and atmosphere!
It was a slower night and the wait staff was clearly checked out. Took forever to get another drink. We were going to order dessert, but since our waiter took forever we chose not to.
Long time listener Long time caller but 1st time happy hour. Great options although I miss the ricotta cheese w honey. Alicia intro’d me to Julie and it was a fantastic evening.
I give the manager a 10 for her outstanding assistance, professionalism and courteousness.
I give the service a -10 because he was to busy talking care of others and didn't stand in front of us long enough to comment or request something. He bad mouthed the kitchen staff and did not try to make good on the mistakes in our order. This was the third and worst he's ever been. We will ask for him in the future so we make sure that we do NOT have him again. (Manager is aware)
A little rushed by the waiter. Also didn’t care for his approach to us.
The food was very good and the service was excellent, the only thing that bothered us was when the music started it was SO LOUD we couldn’t talk to each other anymore. When you’re at a restaurant with friends you want to be able to talk.
Fantastic experience w my brother. Great dough rewards 🐖 in a blanket mafia style. Alicia informed us of 🍕 @ 1/2 time. Awesome service again- Cheers...
