    Ordered up and down the menu. Faves: filet with bearnaise (get an order of fries with that), beet n goatcheese, porkbelly, mac n chee, bacari house beer. Disappointing dish: shrimp ceviche, just bitter and served with doritos.

    This was our first time at this location and we were pleasantly surprised. I had made a reservation for another restaurant & unfortunately I made the mistake of booking the wrong Saturday. I quickly did a search for restaurants & found this little gem. When you walk in this restaurant gives you a sense of Spain. There’s beautiful arches & the lifting makes you feel super relaxed. We started off with cocktails & quickly moved through the Tapas menu. We had the Seabass, shrimp, stuffed mushrooms, sliders & Brussels sprouts & everything was delicious!!! Our waiter was amazing, never missed a beat. The ambiance was lovely & we will definitely be back.

    Seven of us had lunch at Bacari & love the food! However, the service was poor. There was a private party taking the entire inside of the restaurant and had a long wait for the bathroom, there were a few 15 or person groups outdoors along with the regular diners. The outdoor area needed another server. We were asked to put all of our orders in, including dessert as the kitchen was closing. Our desserts were stuffed on the table as we were still eating out main dishes, and the servers did not understand this was not ok. Our group collected plates and placed them on the next table to be able to eat comfortably. We all love the food at Bacari and have dined at all the locations, but them having that many large groups is just plain greedy.

    I tried to set up a lovely birthday meal for myself and my friends however, that dream was abruptly crushed. Our table wasn't ready for 40 minutes. By the time we were seated the restaurant and bar were set to close in 15 minutes. On top of that, our group was verbally harassed by a homeless individual. Not a fan.

    This place has changed in so many ways since my last visit. All good ways! The menu's more robust, the food is just as delicious as before. They have a wonderful happy hour (BOGO house wine and $5 margaritas on Mondays). Will this be my new happy hour spot? I think so!

    I've had great experiences with the Bacari restaurants, and I came to this one for Easter brunch. The place was pretty busy, so the service was lacking a lot. I ordered the egg pizza and was pleased with it, and the ambience was very nice. I would like to come back again to try their dinner.

    The drinks were the best part and decently priced. The food was mediocre. The service was terrible. Our server kept forgetting to come over, it took 45 minutes to even get water, and they sneak in a 4% automatic gratuity under the guise that it’s optional but you have to tell the server you want it removed.

    Came in for DineLA week. Went with the chicken breast, Mac and cheese, and squash. Started with a cocktail. Unfortunately can't remember the name but it had whiskey and blackberries. It was refreshing and delicious. As for the food, everything was at a minimum solid. The chicken breast with the risotto cake and jalapenos was really good, the squash dish came with some greens and grain that all went really well together, and the Mac and cheese had a great crunch on the panko breading. Finally, the bread pudding came out. This stuff was great. Piping hot with a really nice texture and flavor. Really great way to end the meal. Had no idea food this good was this close to where I live. Definitely glad I went and can't wait to go back!
