    I love this restaurant. Great food and ambiance, gluten free options, almond milk for lattes, excellent service. They also leave you alone to enjoy your meal and chat with your friend. Highly recommend.

    Great food and nice place. Wasn’t sure when we pulled up because it is in a strip mall but wasn’t disappointed. My only criticism was I reserved a regular table so we wouldn’t get seated in a high top but for some reason we were seated at the bar on a night top.

    Best service anywhere -- authentically cordial and extra-accommodating, attentive to questions, details and special requests, relatable and fun! Food is always first-rate, with a nice range of specials to complement the restaurant's seasonally updated menus. The kitchen is very accommodating, and the staff's thoughtful touches for special occasions do not go unnoticed. This is our go-to restaurant, whether for spur of the moment outings or special occasions. It's a lovely space, both in the bar and main dining areas, including al fresco dining in fine weather; in short, it's a delightful setting, year-round!

    This was our second time to Barnwood. It has been an absolute pleasure both times. Our meals were delicious and the service is great. The staff is very warm and makes you feel very comfortable. This restaurant has become a place that we look forward to dining at.

    It is four days later and I am still thinking about our experience at Barnwood. Excellent calamari and scallops by the fire place. My wife went their for lunch and enjoyed it, but the dinner entrees are really where they shine!

    I like Barnwood, but was disappointed in its turkey dinner on Thanksgiving. The cranberry sauce was 100% liquid, the broccoli was not done, and the stuffing was waaaay too sweet. The server was very good at his job. I’ve cooked Thanksgiving dinner the past 25-30 years, so was looking forward to the “time off” this year. But we all left the restaurant in agreement that I would get back into the kitchen do the cooking next Thanksgiving.

    We had a wonderful time. Food was great, with many options to choose from. We sat in the bar area, which was more conducive to conversation, but any location at the restaurant would have been. We’ll be back again and again.

    Dinner tonight — Date night with my hubby at another fave restaurant: Barnwood Grill in Newtown. We had a very fun high top table in the bar, with fantastic vibe and equally wonderful server. Every time I visit this fine establishment. I must have the pork belly appetizer. He enjoyed a special ahi tuna appetizer to start. My meal was the barramundi over fettuccine in a lobster sauce; his, a dinner special of encrusted beef filet with mushroom risotto. And for dessert – nothing beats a sticky toffee pudding. The bartender gave us each a complementary “shot of the night” which was coconut-pineapple-y. Cold, fruity and tasty! An excellent night, as usual, at the Barnwood Grill.

    The food was very bland. The bread was too tough to eat. The drinks were amazing though but I would never go back there.
