    Ate chips & guacamole, grilled chicken tacos, and fried yuca. Drank a Mama Cita Hibicus Punch. All of it was AMAZING! So happy Barrio is open again.

    Barrio had just opened from the Covid closure. All staff wore masks and the tables were very, very far apart. The food was good as well as the service

    This is my daughter’s all time FAVORITE place. She was fortunate to spend her birthday here with a small group of friends recently. They all loved their food, drinks, and the location was perfect! Now they all want to go back again! Thank you for continuing to offer great food and service we can count on!

    Chose Barrio through a rating of quiet conversational restaurants; not so. Appreciated the ability to make a reservation, however was seated in the bar area? Outside of the unanticipated noise food was wonderful, drinks creative, and service acceptable. When we declined the dessert menu server disappeared leaving water glasses empty.

    As first time visitors to cocina del barrio, we were favorably impressed. Food was a mix of central all were delicious. Now hooked on the yucca fries. Very complete bar with non-alcoholic cocktails as well as a dozen different margarita choices. Definitely going back.

    Good food and ambiance, but the drawbacks are that each taco is served individually (randomly people without food, or there are way too many plates on a table) and the noise was nearly unbearable.

    It is a nice place for Mexican style tapas. Not great for a meal. Overall it is a bit noisy. This is more of a nosh and go.

    The bar and the dining sections are very close together so as the bar guests get more relaxed the noise level escalates and was unbearable for dinner guests. We even asked to be reseated. We don't expect to return. Food was good but atmosphere was not.

    This was our second visit to Barrio, Edina and both times we felt the wait staff was rushing us and not very friendly. We were there for a monthly girls night and although we stayed awhile, we did order drinks, apps and dinner. The space wasn’t full, nor were there customers waiting so we were not sure what the rush would be. Also, we said thank you several times to our server and couldn’t get a smile or a you’re welcome back from her. Disappointing, but the margaritas and guacamole app was very good!

    As always, the food was phenomenal. We got the corn chowder, anticuchos, and potato sopes. We missed the original decor, though. We liked how intimate it felt for dates when it was darker. The new, lighter decor isn't bad; we just preferred the original vibe.

    Very unique menu with some outstanding food items depending on what you pick off the menu. The tequila flights were amazing as well as the ability to order tapas rather than full meals. The ambiance was great, and I would enjoy coming here again!

    I was using a special margarita coupon which made it worth the time and money. I was seated in the bar area and was glad I was alone because it was too loud to carry on a conversation. I went at Happy Hour, so the taco (2 small tortillas and enough filling for both of them) was reasonably priced ($3.50 vs regular $5 price), but nothing to rave about. My server did a good job. My drink, if I had to pay for it, was $11.00.

    The remodel is nice, but lighting in back is way too bright -- need a dimmer. A fruit fly wouldn't leave us alone, wouldn't comment except it same thing happened last time we were there. Love the guac, pork carnitas tacos and signature margarita and will be back for those!

    We enjoyed the food, Trinity Margarita was terrific. Our waiter was very pleasant and food came out in timely manner even though it was very busy. One thing occurred which I really wondered about. I had asked for a booth when I made my reservation. The hostess seated us at a table and I asked if we could be seated at one of the several booths which were not occupied. She told us they were for 4 or 6 even though 3 of them had 2 people in. Two people were also seated later in the remaining booths after she told us that.
