    The service was terrible, we waited a long time for food, we completely forgot about one dish and in the end they didn’t even cancel it from the bill!

    I made reservations for Valentines Day and the service was lackluster. I ordered wine and throughout the 2 hours that we were there never did we receive our wine. I love Bacari and I know this isn’t typical for them but definitely was my worst experience.

    A wonderful dining experience marred by the elevated noise level. It was so loud we wouldn’t return despite the delicious food and attentive staff. It doesn’t make for a relaxing evening. Go there but sit outside.

    Bacari has consistently good food and service. Every time we have gone there the service staff has been amazing. Jeff was our server and he really took good care of us - offered us great drink options and also comped us the dessert as it was our daughters birthday. Food is yummy ! All the tapas are great - order anyone and you can’t go wrong. Our favorite was the pork belly - we ordered two helpings 😀

    We met dear friends on the patio of Bacari. The heaters kept us toasty warm and the neon lights from the street were a welcome ambiance. The food (tapas) was great and reasonably priced. The cocktails were so good I ended up picking up the tab 🤣. I especially liked that any server was able to help us. They were all connected by their handheld computers so any server was able to add to our order. Outstanding food and service. We will be back.

    We had to move 2x (3rd table) due to unforeseen circumstances, both on my side and the construction/repair of the building. It’s beyond their control but this resto accommodated our needs and provided us with excellent service. Heads up to the cheery front clerk who did her best to fix things up while giving all smiles like it’s no issue at all. Now that’s the real customer service, kudos! Great food, great ambience. Outdoor seating is best if need more space. Well recommended to those visiting Americana mall.

    Ate in the outdoor space on New Year's Eve - lovely spot, easy to stay warm. Food was very good - solid options, pricing wasn't bad. Service was attentive, and food came quickly. I require gluten free food, and there were plenty of very good options. Things were kept free of cross contamination and made for a wonderful evening. Really glad to have spent our special night here.

    This has to be some of the best food I’ve eaten in ages. The lamb hummus is to die for! We also had stuffed mushrooms, braised pork, and Mac & cheese w/ bacon. All of it was amazing but the lamb hummus was best.

    Such a fan of this place when visiting The Americana. The food is always great and flavorful, the service is terrific, and the outside terrace is pleasant and breezy….and also warm enough when there’s a chill outside. Unlike The Grove, the food options at The Americana are pretty dismal. This is by far the best option, and it’s actually really good!

    Bacari is amazing. As a vegetarian, there are plenty of options. The stuffed mushrooms are to die for. I was introduced to Bacari when it came in next door to me on 3rd st. I like the ambiance there a bit more because it's tucked away in secret courtyard, but this Bacari in Glendale for sure had the same level of food and service I'm accustomed to. I'll be back to this location as this is now the closest Bacari to me, but for anyone reading this, I suggest going to the third street location and sit on the patio.
