    The server was not very helpful, make sure to ask for a bottle of water or you won’t get any or at least once through the whole night. By the way don’t expect to be ask if you want dessert lol.

    Very enjoyable! Great service!! We ordered a selection of appetizers - chickpea hummus with flatbread; skirt steak skewers; Spanish octopus with giant beans. All were good especially the hummus/flatbread and the octopus. We were too full for a main course but did partake in the pistachio baklava with apricot syrup and coconut crème anglaise. Delicious! Even ran into a friend (also dining there) on the way out.

    We had only one night in “the city” and chose Barcha for dinner based on past experience. We were not disappointed. As always, everything was perfect. Special kudos to the manager, too. It seems that every time we go there we have to ask for something special— changed our mind re outside versus inside, need to arrive later than planned, etc. — and are always accommodated cheerfully. The only negative is that the staff seems very overworked. There is a bit of a “sweatshop” vibe when watching the staff hustle as much as they have to. Seems like they could afford to hire one or two more per shift and reduce the pressure. But all in all we love the place and will definitely be back.

    service was absolutely TERRIBLE. we barely saw our hostess. it took forever to get our food. our appetizers never came out. she never apologized. there was hair in one of our salads. we would have sent it back but our hostess NEVER came to our table. then when the bill came, we asked to remove the salad because it was inedible. she once again, didn't apologize for the hair and took another 20 minutes to bring the updated check. big bummer because I love Barcha and think the food is good. but this hostess made for a terrible experience. luckily the manager was very nice and apologized for the hair. but the hostess had a terrible attitude and needs to learn service skills.

    Lovely restaurant. Server was indifferent. Appetizers(hummus and Fatoush salad) were outstanding. The pita was the best I have ever tasted. The branzino entree was not good. The fish was mediocre and the flavor was much too strong

    It was great ambience and great food. My wife is allergic to dairy so servers helped us find the right food. This place is little expensive but worth for the place. Its right next to Salesforce building. It has outdoor and indoor seating. We ordered Lamb Skewers, Shrimp Skewers, Spanish Octopus and Lamb Rack (Entree). We also ordered red wine Pinot and Yallah cocktail. Yallah had great taste. It was blended so well that you won’t feel any blanco taste. Spanish Octopus was superhit item in the menu. Definitely try it. Its gravy mixed with beans and crunchy kale on top was lit. Overall we enjoyed and we will definitely go there again. This is the first place we encountered in SF in last 8 yrs that has every food/drink prepared with care and taste.

    Very low lighting inside; we had go use our phone flashlights to see the dishes and saw people at tables around us doing the same. The food was OK, there are better middle eastern restaurants. It was alright for an evening out but I will not visit it again. I did not feel that I got what I paid for. If you are looking for vegetarian options, barely any.

    As always, Barcha took care of us. We came in a group of 8 and were served promptly with no mistakes, great food and incredible service. The servers were attentive and kind. We love Barcha and book tons of business lunches there due to the great food, ambience and fast service, but it was nice to receive the same service without a client. Will be going again soon!

    My recent experience at Barcha was magical, to say the very least. I am incredibly impressed by the quality and caliber of the staff, the food, and the restaurant itself. I hope I can do it justice with my review. From the moment I walked in the door, I was overwhelmed with the beauty of the restaurant. Not only was the decor and ambiance perfect for the evening; I immediately felt welcomed by the host and staff. I had changed the reservation requests prior to arriving and was still accommodated ten fold. I was there with two guests for a birthday and what a birthday it was. The booth we received for this evening was perfect. It was cozy, it was in a beautiful location in the restaurant, and met every want I had. It felt like true VIP status. Aside from the atmosphere and ambiance, the food was absolutely immaculate. We shared four small plates between the three of us and not one disappointed. The beef dumplings and the lamb kefta were both shining stars that I have not stopped thinking about since. When we got to our main course, I was further blown away. This was my first experience with duck and I can say.. The tahdig made a duck lover out of me. Everything was paired so well, the flavors and textures are unlike anything else I have ever had. The blend of the saffron rice, the berries, the egg and the duck transcended me to another world. Honestly, this is amazing work. The staff is the last thing I want to compliment. Our server, I believe her name was Nina, was wonderful. She was so kind, attentive but not overbearing, and she was effortless in her work. Dishes were brought out as she cleaned the table in between without us even noticing, thus adding to the magic. Now for Kosta: Kosta is unlike many other managers and it is apparent in the way he carries himself. Above all else, I can see his skill and experience in the industry. He touched our table twice and I felt at home. He was one of the main reasons I chose Barcha and he did not disappoint. 10/10
