The Barrel Room
Once you have experienced The Barrel Room’s delightful menu, the warm, friendly staff, and world-class wine selections, you will know why we have become one of the most popular dining destinations in all North County.
From the outside it looks a little non-inviting and lacks signage. Once inside, we were taken aback by the noise level. We requested an outside table and felt a lot more comfortable outside with the heaters.
The service was good and the food excellent. We'll definitively come back to try the other items on the menu, which looked very appealing.
Only complaint is over priced Wine’s but the food was awesome
We've been here a couple of time and it's been great each time. I highly recommend this restaurant.
It was way too loud. There was a large table of obnoxiously boisterous people next to us and we really had difficulty carrying on a conversation. The outside area was not available due to a special event. The inside area where we were forced to sit was too crammed with tables which resulted in a very loud, poor atmosphere. The waiter actually had to yell at us to tell us what the specials were. This was a birthday event for us and it was very disappointing.
CHairs are very low for the table height. Otherwise good place for lunch
Would we recommend Barrel Room? Well, yes and no. We went to the Barrel Room for the first time for a nice dinner. The food was great, and the server was nice. We were extremely disappointed with the 4% added charge on our bill, which we were not informed of before we ordered. We understand the reason for the extra charge, but it seemed sneaky, as most restaurants advertise the extra charge on the menu in a place it can be seen. It was a huge turn off, and as we eat out quite a lot, we have encountered this many times, and have even had out waiter/waitress tell us about it when we order. It was purely bad form on the part of the Barrel Room.
Great food, great service. Really enjoyed our meal with friends here. Sat outside and enjoyed the wine selection, the Sweet and Salty dates appetizer, and excellent fish and pasta dinners.
This was a special birthday party for my husband and family and some close friends, one who also had a birthday. We chose the outdoor which was perfect because the noise level was less, an important factor for the hard of hearing- there was a heating lamp above us so although there was a chill in the air we were toasty warm. We love the food at the barrel room. There was a nice cheese and meat board there that we ordered in advance. My husband loves salmon or sea bass and both are on the menu. I brought the birthday cake which the server took and chilled then brought out with some ice cream and lit candles. I was very happy with that. Our server did a great job making sure everything went smoothly and really accommadating this event. My only regret was how the payment in the end went. My son was splitting the cost and a friend wanted to pay for the drinks so although it’s something that has to be done it takes away from the celebratory spirit of the evening. I should have worked out something privately with the server beforehand. All in all we love the barrel room. Great food, great atmosphere. And good service!!
A little slow for our server to assist us initially but it was great after that.
The service at TBR is always excellent. Christian took care of us and because I noted on my Open Table reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary, they gave us a dessert on the house - how sweet! Love the food and service - always a lovely meal.
Great food, wife truly enjoyed her Birthday dinner and wine. Thanks.
My date and I enjoyed the food, they had great customer service.
We eat here often and love it, and the date night menu is a great deal.
The only issue we had on this trip is that the bartender (whom we like) whistled to himself throughout our meal. it was pretty distracting.
Normally eat at the Barrel Room for lunch. First time for dinner. As always, great selection, great food. Nice selection of appetizers, really like the shrimp tostados. Had the dates for the first time. Excellent. I had the Pork Oso Buco. My wife had the Sea Bass. Both were really good, preparation was perfect. Always like their wine selections, lots of California wine.
Been here for brunch in the past but this was our first time for dinner. Food was delicious and super friendly service. Loved the bruschetta and dates wrapped in bacon apps and the scallops were a delicious entree. Also have to try peanut butter mousse dessert. We’ll be back!
Service and wine selection was tremendous. Food (entrees) we had was overpriced and small portions but enjoyed it.
Appetizers and Desserts were great.
Will go back as it’s definitely worth another try.
On arrival they couldn’t find our reservation . The chicken on my salad was very dry
it was great, food was good and he service was good too.
Food was O.K. Would have rather had the chance or opportunity to have the dressing on the side with my Cobb salad. I had no idea that it would be smothered in dressing. It would have been nice to have been offered some bread, crackers or something to complement the salad.
The noise level was really high and the tables were close together. At the table next to ours, the lady decided to sit right behind me and constantly was bumping into my chair. I finally moved!
I always love to stop in and have a glass ot Twomey!!
We had an enjoyable evening. Great service and value!
Was a little bummed that there was only outside seating available when we arrived, but it wasn't too hot out there. The server was beyond amazing. He gave us just as much attention as we needed. We never had to flag him down or wait for him. Additionally, he went above and beyond in helping us find drinks that we liked.
Very nice outside, but adjoining tables were so noisy, we could barely hear each other. Food was excellent.
Always great food along with excellent service. I highly recommend coming here.
Very good food, reasonably priced, and such fast service! We were impressed for our first visit there!
As always, the Barrel Room was fantastic with great service, great food, nice wine selection and just a great overall meal.
Everything is perfect at The Barrel Room! This is a neighborhood GEM!
Delicious steak! I was impressed it was a nice big portion of steak with the sides for a very low special price and wine included! So good!
Food was great! We got the cheese board and it was to die for. The waiter recommended one of the cheeses’ and it melted in your mouth. The wine was even better!
Great wine list and delicious food. Easy parking with choice of indoor or patio dining at RB location.
Excellent service, but less attention to water and ice tea refills. Salad was great!
First time for Tuesday date night! Loved it!
Food was very good today
Made reservations which turned out great. Our server, Christian, was very good, and even though my brother-in-law didn't get what he ordered, it turned out fine. No harm, no foul. Though it would have been nice to have had some crusty sourdough bread included with our meal or a small dinner salad.
I would rate 5 stars, however the noise level was just too high. It was difficult maintaining a conversation. Perhaps groups > 4 people sit outside?
Went there for date night again. Fantastic deal - 2 entrees and a bottle of wine for $50. Food was excellent. Wife had chicken parmigiana and I had the shrimp elote salad. There are a number of red and white bottle choices. We had the Tencent Pinot, which was great.
The food is amazing, prices reasonable, nice casual setting !
waitresses were very good. several tables were open but they tried to seat us at the worst one - by the door to the patio. will ask for patio next time because of the noise level. food is very good - will go for Sunday Brunches and also lunch or dinner once a week.
Great outside dining area and perfect for a Sunday brunch. Great food, great coffee and very friendly service!
