    The food is the best in the South Bay, always clever, tasty and creative. There is no better place if you can get a reservation.

    Baran’s never disappoints. Top notch food, flavor and presentation. It does get super loud but it’s one of the few places for which I’ll tolerate the noise.

    Exquisite food and great wine! My wife asked the waiter to just bring a combination of things that he would recommend together but we did request the sea bass as one of them. The food was fresh, the flavors were well balanced, and things that were supposed to be spicy were boldly spicy. We will definitely be back.

    I've eaten at Baran's (probably) 7 times. Last night I took friends that had never been there. They are very big foodies & they were super impressed. The food, as always, was excellent. Absolutely excellent. The service is always great too. Very friendly and helpful in every regard... even to the point that when we had left the restaurant I received a call from Baran's saying they had found a necklace at my table... sure enough, my wrap had apparently pulled my (favorite) necklace off and I had not even noticed it... I would have been so sad to lose that necklace. How incredibly kind for them to look me up and call me immediately as we were only a couple blocks away. I LOVE this restaurant. Highly recommended. I do wish it were a little larger (it took 3 weeks to get a reservation) and this is a pricey night out... but IMHO, well worth the splurge!

    Unsurpassed fine dining in the South Bay! Continues its amazing record of innovation and artistic cuisine with diverse and affordable menu choices. We selected a southwestern theme with steak (carne asada) tartare and duck chile. Both dishes paired perfectly with the El Vaquero cabernet franc recommended by the server. Extraordinary service and hospitality. Highly recommended!

    Our server was a member of the Baran's family so we were treated very nicely. Our only negative was the wine buyer/sommelier who was working the bar and mingling with guests. Apparently, he is only there on the weekends. We learned that he was not part of the family but is treated like one. Perhaps he could learn something from the Baran's family hospitality. While he spoke to everyone else in the restaurant, multiple times, he never came to our table in spite of the fact that we ordered several wines. When he did come over it was to say, "I understand you wanted to speak to me?" We didn't. We were simply inquiring about who he was to our server. We were about to ask him about some of the wine choices but he then abruptly left and never returned. Really a shame and he spoiled an otherwise excellent meal.

    Warm, family run experience with a very high level of attention to the unique and delicious options. Nothing wrong here; too noisy on our visit due to a large party and the space is modest. But who cares…the company, food and drink were top notch. A jewel in Hermosa Beach. Best items for us were Indian Egg, Zucchini and Pork Ravioli. Oh my!

    Barran's is amazing and seems to constantly be getting better. The menu changes frequently and we've never had a bad dish. This pace it toally underrated and should be considered a top 10 or 20 in LA.

    Roasted Local Zucchini Was wonderful, never thought zucchini’s could taste this good. We had steak, very nicely seasoned, little high on salt though. Desert was some kind of coffe cake swimming in taffy and cream, delicious. Very nice Wine selections. Overall very good and very expensive more than couple of hundred for one meal, 2 appetizers, one desert, and 3 glasses of wine.

    Outstanding, as always! These two brothers have been hitting home runs since opening day, and now - many years (and one pandemic) later - they've not slowed down a bit. If anything, I think it's even better today than our first visit back 3+ years ago.

    Nice place once you are outside but from the outside it looks closed and it is covered with construction. Service and food was excellent as well as the champagne and wine. Not cheap though so have to spend to enjoy.
