    Front of house very welcoming, moved us inside, although we had booked outside (the only available when we reserved on line earlier). Two of us shared the the following plates, shrimp, ceviche, Bacari burger, a bacon &brie, pizza, and Chef‘s salmon. All were really good and very enjoyable. We had a glass of Zinfandel and a glass of Carmenère. Both were good, but we preferred the Zinfandel. we finished with the ice cream. (tasted, homemade, but don’t know) and the bread pudding, which came with a scoop of ice cream. I have a server, Christian, who was excellent in every way. We ate there before going to the AMC Americana movie theater. This was our first time at the restaurant but we will definitely go back. It is super.

    We had a great time. We were seated right away. We were outdoors on the patio and it had a lot of heaters which was nice because it was cold. This wasn’t are first time at the restaurant. As always the service and the food were delicious!! We really enjoy the small bites for sharing. All staff were friendly and accommodating. I recommend Bacardi Restaurant to anyone.

    Beware: “shared” plates are not big enough to split. Some do not come in a format that is able to be split at all, though you are told to order as such. Food is ok - nothing to write home about. Service was good, but very busy. Didn’t hate it, but out of town guests were left disappointed.

    The food is very over salty. I specifically got the beef cheeks and that was inedible. In addition, service was slow and our party wasn't attended to. We had to flag down staff for everything. Our waiter rarely came by to even refill our water. To top it off the waiter did not validate our ticket for parking so when we were exiting we were charged for parking. Chaotic, disorganized dinner and not worth the price for average uninspired food.

    Went for our anniversary. First time going here. Didn’t know what to expect. The portions were definitely small. So be prepared to order a good amount on the menu. I absolutely loved the stuffed mushrooms. I wouldn’t recommend the sangria. Maybe because I expected it to be a tad more sweeter. The host at the beginning wasn’t all too friendly but our servers were amazing. Definitely enjoyed it more because of those two. And the ambience and fixtures, paintings all were beyond beautiful.

    Party of 15 for lunch, outside under the canopy. It was great. Set back from the sidewalk, and yet street noise was actually not too bad. The service was great -- attentive but never felt like and interruption. We chose a pre-fixe menu since it was a bigger group, 8 dishes. Everyone found several dishes they really liked, and there was enough food to be satisfied. I particularly liked the Brussels sprouts with creme fraiche; the fried chicken sliders were very popular; the caprese with pesto was a great way to start.

    I went to Bacari GDL for lunch on Sunday. While the food and service were both good, there is nothing special about the restaurant and it's definitely not worth the ordeal of parking in the Americana parking lot (especially during the holiday season) to eat here. Maybe dinner is better but the brunch menu was meh - the standards you find everywhere. And for a restaurant whose name is emblazoned in the shape of a wine bottle, their wine list was incredibly weak - definitely not on par with their sister restaurant on 3rd Street.

    This place exceeded expectations - particularly since it came so highly recommended. My hubs and I had a reservation and arrived early, and were able to be seated immediately. The server was very helpful and attentive as we decided on our meal. After cocktails, we started with beet salad which was fresh and delicious. We also got the steak and chicken, both cooked to perfection - with great flavors without being overly seasoned. Everything was spaced perfectly and made for a very enjoyable evening. Highly recommend 👍🏽

    We sat outside with heat lamps and it was quite pleasant. Nice area surrounded by plants so don't see the street. Nice selection of small plate, Tapas dishes. Both cold plates of salads, hot dishes of meat, fish, seafood & vegetables and desserts. The brussel sprouts were excellent as was the Asian pear with gouda pizza and the scallops. I would return again.

    Pretty disappointed with brunch at Bacari. I had selected it for a family get-together so I have only myself to blame. It has a pretty limited brunch menu and they were unable to make French Toast the day I was there. I considered trying the Dutch Baby pancakes, but the waiter didn't recommend them. I ended up having the Bacari burger minus the egg. The burger was tiny...about the size of one you'd get in a slider. I noticed that all the portion sizes of the dishes the rest of my party ordered were small too. Overall Bacari was very lackluster for brunch and I wouldn't come back.

    Overall experience of the restaurant was very good. The atmosphere is soothing and has a lounge vibe. Great complement to any signature cocktails they offer. The food we ordered tasted great and although the portions are not large, it's just about right. We ordered their Scallops, Chicken Sliders, Pork Belly, and their Brie Pizza. All dishes look good, and tasty at the same time. To go with the food, we ordered a couple of cocktails.

    We reserve a table for 3 inside of restaurant, because that day was raining. The noise was very loud, and we almost couldn't hear each other. We love our cocktails and the pizza with pear is very good too. The desert was so so.... I think we would have enjoy sitting outside more
