Overall, good experience. My husband's food was not as good as he had anticipated.
Wonderful experience all around. Great value, delicious food & perfect setting. Highly recommend.
This was the fourth time we dined at the Barrel Room. As was the case on our three previous visits, the food was delicious and plentiful, the wine list and wait staff were simply outstanding. Our out of town visitors were equally impressed and talked about their selections for days afterwards.
Our servers were super responsive and attentive. We've only been to the Barrel Room once before pre covid. It was only our second outdoor eating place we've visited during COVID. I have to say they did it well. The food was delicious too!! Get the Salmon!
Great Food, best in Rancho Bernardo. The stuffed dates are the best! Try the Salmon and Jambalaya. Happy Hour is good too.
We had a wonderful lunch with great service. The outdoor patio is large so we felt very safe. We will be back!
Our go to spot for date night or happy hour! The staff is friendly and food is delicious. We will definitely be going back soon :)
We came here for Sunday Brunch and would highly recommend it.
Waited for 26 minutes to be allowed in (granted we were there 15 minutes before our reservations) but it would have been nice to be welcomed in not just a flip of the sign.
Two employees just sauntered in and out a couple times with no greeting, same thing at the table. Noticed waitress was more jovial with the table across from us, maybe they are regulars still no excuse for the solemn face, especially at the beginning of the business day!
The appetizer was delicious but our dinner was overcooked and almost seemed microwaved. Very disappointed!!
Outdoors, nice lighting and atmosphere. And we felt very safe.
The restaurant has made excellent accommodation for eating in the virus circumstances, with tables spaced on their back terrace and the area beyond that. The food was quite good, the service excellent, and it was a very nice evening.
Our go to ladies nite out. Always great food selections and wine at The Barrel Room.
What a great place!! I can’t believe I’ve lived nearby for ten years and never tried it before.
Food was good, service was great and we felt very safe on the outside patio.
One of the nicer options in Rancho Bernardo. Although a full bar would be nice, an excellent wine selection is the next best thing. The Barrel Room is a consistently good experience.
Awesome experience at the barrel room. Will definitely be returning.
Friends from Los Angeles came to visit and this was my favorite place with the best wine selection. The Barrel Room never disappoints.
First, they have it set up beautifully and socially distant to keep everyone safe which is important to me. They have a large outdoor dining space and everything was super clean and the entire staff had properly fitted masks on at all times. The food was delicious and hot when it came out, it was very busy but no long wait for the food. It seems they have a fine tuned system there. All of the staff, servers and busser were extremely professional and a joy to spend the evening with. We will definitely be back!
Happy to be dining in a locally owned establishment. Food was great, wine selection was wonderful. Our server seemed a little new, but still had a fabulous attitude. We will, of course, be back and often.
This local favorite never disappoints. Food was great, service was friendly, and the ambiance is always nice.
Great outdoor safe distancing, wonderful staff and Happy Hour Menu over the top. Ordered dinner, which was outstanding after appetizers, and the environment was safe and pleasant. Always loved The Barrel Room, and now more than ever, I feel comfortable in the setting on the enlarged patio.
Superb venue, patio perfect for outdoor dining. Friendly knowledgeable staff, a real family business where you feel at home. Sun was setting, cool breeze, all on top of the excellent wine selection and menu. Very reasonable prices, superior value and great taste. Short ribs melt in the mouth, the burger was outstanding. This is a gem in North County Inland dining and it is wonderful to have it in Rancho Bernardo.
The outdoor dining was so special and the food/drinks were amazing, as always! The Barrel Room always comes through!
Food and cocktails once again didn't disappoint. Eric, our server, just the best!
Always a very enjoyable dinning experience.
The weather was fantastic and very joyful very good choice on the wine that he suggested in the food as usual was exceptional
Party of six and we had a lovely evening outside. Our waiter was wonderful.
The Barrel Room has always served good food with good service. We ate outside which they have expanded since COVID-19. We enjoyed the outdoor dining experience very much.
Always a wonderful dining experience at the Barrel Room We are returning customers many times over.
Kind staff, great food, pretty peaceful outdoor seating.
Excellent staff and table placement outside, friendly atmosphere , wine snd food could not be better.
The restaurant was not that busy , we sat down and were brought waters . We then sat there for 30 min with no service. The gentleman who finally helped us was very apologetic and took our table even though it was not his duty. The food was mediocre at best but the outdoor seating area was nice.
While the food, service & ambiance were wonderful, it was what I saw the staff perform in keeping us safe from Covid that impressed me most! Thank you so much!!!
We all enjoyed our cocktails, chicken parmesan and the Grilled Shrimp Elote Salad.
Our server, RJ, was a great customer service focused individual... a real delight!
Can't wait to return to this restaurant.
Great job Barrel Room... excellent in all areas!!!

Met a friend for lunch Delicious food. Great service.
We ate outdoors and the ambience was spectacular. Highly recommend the fried cauliflower appetizer. Extremely tasty. Nice low key lighting was recently strung up.
