    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.

    I hadn’t been to Baran’s in about 8 months and was glad for the opportunity to get back. While there were some old favorites on the menu, like the Indian egg, there were some wonderful new and seasonal dishes added since my last visit. Everything was first-rate - beautifully plated and delicious. And the portions were substantial for the dishes we ordered. We started with the focaccia; never skip the focaccia. We had the beet and strawberry salad, the prawn starter, the roasted zucchini and the duck chile Colorado. We ended with the chocolate mousse, which was both fun and delicious. Baran’s is a true gem in the South Bay!

    Where do I begin? A simple dinner out with the girls turned into an unexpected culinary journey! We let our server pick our charcuterie and her cheese and meat selection was on point. We enjoyed our board with a side of yummy focaccia - just YES! The maple apple salad was a hands down table favorite - perfect balance of acidity and sweetness - bursting with FRESH flavor with an incredible tangy dressing. Next, the garganelli pasta boasted a smokey truffle sauce - such a creative flavor profile. Our server suggested the smoked/fried chicken and WOW - perfectly cooked and so delicious. If this wasn't enough food (and trust me it was!) of course we had to sample desserts. Still dreaming about the decadent coffee toffee pudding and light (but oh so perfect) creamsicle pie. A Very HAPPY Ending!

    This is a restaurant where the ingredients sounded a bit exotic or even unconventional to us but our willingness to explore the menu resulted in a memorable dining experience. Everything we ate was a combination of fresh and beautifully seasoned flavors. The service is friendly, helpful and unrushed. Highly recommend Baron’s 2239.

    Amazing! Family owned and run. Service was outstanding. Food comes out hot delicious and aesthetically pleasing. We were a group of six and were able to try quite a few plates. Our favorites were the brussels sprouts, Fish dish, fried chicken, bread and of course, wine! I can’t wait to go back.

    My friend and I shared 5 dishes, one more delicious than the next. Don't be put off by the strip mall location, this is a real gem. While it is my first time eating here in the restaurant, we discovered its pedigree during the pandemic, We ordered takeout more than two dozen times.

    Best food in the South Bay! One of the most pleasurable dining experiences I’ve had in a long time. Love shared plates, family style dining. The fired chicken and Brussels sprouts were the best I’ve ever had. We will definitely be back. Service was excellent. Very fun and friendly vibe.

    One word…OUTSTANDING! Baran’s was the only choice to celebrate a birthday. The service is next level, sets Baran’s apart from others. Now, the food…..holy cow. The focaccia bread, the Kingfish Sashimi, the Brussel Sprouts, the mushrooms, then onto the Barramundi (unlike anything you have tried) and the most tender NY Strip. Favorite restaurant in the entire South Bay. 🍾👏🏼

    From the food to the friendly staff, this place is outstanding. Great place for shareable plates but once you start eating, you may not want to share. Everything was very tasty but my favorites were the focaccia, kingfish sashimi, maple apple salad and creamsicle pie
