    I always enjoy Barcha. I only gave it a 4 stars for this meal since I did think the cost of the prix fixed for Thanksgiving was high, yet as always everything was delicious. I highly recommend for a dinner for two or a group.

    Very pleasant evening we showed up right at 5:00pm so not too many people were there, very quiet. We received our food fairly fast. The food was wonderful. My daughter got the New York State. She says it was the best she ever had. The only thing I did not like, was the cranberry juice that I got something seem to be off with it. Other than that a perfect night they also gave us a complementary rice patty plate that was very good.

    TLDR; wont come here again. Somehow, the dark ambience was so much important for them that we had to put on our phone lights to see the menu. It was a compete put-off to start with and since they wont do anything about it, we had to choose the patio (not our first choice). The food was average, service was inattentive. And they didn't care that we had a special mention (anniversary) in the reservation. I though OpenTable doesn't pass it on, but had a nice restaurant in the south bay not only notice it but also extend an nice gesture.

    Beautiful decor inside and out. Very accommodating staff, waiter was attentive without being overbearing. We had lamb cigars, bread and hummus, and brussel sprouts. All delicious. Then we had the halibut and duck mains. The halibut was amazing. The duck was a bit dry, I’ve had better, but the rice and sauce that came with it made up for it well. I’d try the shakshura next time. The cheesecake dessert with berries was delightful ending. Overall I’d go back.

    I took my BFF to Barcha last night for his birthday and we had AMAZING time! Sasha was our waitress and she was super attentive, funny, professional and had great recommendations. It was my BFF's first time at Barcha, so we ordered a myriad of food and his expectations were exceeded. Experience was top-tier. LOVE Barcha!!

    I wish that I had gotten our servers name, because he was really great. Overall experience at Barcha was really great. It was my second time dining there and we definitely enjoyed it. The hosts at the front are super friendly and efficient, the server was really great, attentive and helpful! I asked the server about their favorite recommendations and he suggested the beef spiced dumplings, but I was nervous about the spice level since it mentioned chili oil, but he assured us they weren’t too spicey and he was right, they were really great. Highly recommend. I had the Persian Rice with Beef & Lamb Schawarma and it was excellent. My guest had the steak and salad and it was also a great selection. Food+ambiance+service all good here, no wonder they are always busy! Highly recommend!

    Barcha is pretty much my go-to when I'm having lunch or dinner in the city. I have a pre-existing condition, so I need to make a reservation when I'm certain I'll get seated outside. Barcha has never dropped the ball with that. It's a great spot with great food too. I love their spiced beef dumplings. I always order those. I had their fall salad yesterday and, as always, was happy I chose them for a casual lunch with a friend.

    Excellent meal at Barcha. It was our first time and we will certainly be back. The beet hummus, Brussels sprouts and Duck Tahdig were really tasty. Nice ambiance sitting outside and we were plenty warm with the outdoor heaters. The manager came to check on things, but at the end of the meal. Would recommend!
