    We had a work holiday meal and had the chance to try many dishes. Each one was absolutely delicious. Lots of beautifully flavored food, nothing overwhelming, every one had a unique taste.

    Sat us outside as requested and turned the patio heaters on for us. Food was excellent from the pear pizza, the burger, the stuffed mushrooms and the amazing bread pudding. Service was awesome. Came here before a USC football game and Ubered to the game. Very easy.

    We were very happy with the tapas style of plates and the food was delicious. We were happy with everything we ordered. The Dine LA menu was a good value and got us to finally try this restaurant. The Brussel Sprouts were one of the favorites. The waiters was very nice even though we came in just before closing.

    It took over 10 minutes to even get a server to come by. 20 minutes later, we received one dish of food (even though we had ordered 6), and our drinks still weren’t at the table. 15 minuted after that, the server finally came over, but still didn’t notice we didn’t have our food. Over the next 20 minutes they brought 1 dish at a time. Server was totally overwhelmed and very unaware of what was happening at her tables. Food came out very sporadically. There was no visible manager on the floor helping at all. I would not return.

    Second time coming to this location! Honestly the staff is super attentive. The server was really funny and remembered me from my first visit. The food was great, quick and it being tapas you get to try so many things. The drink specials are a plus! Come for the food but keep coming back for the service. Thanks for making it enjoyable.

    Bacari is one of my favorite restaurants, but compared to other locations, this one is not my favorite. It’s not located in a very good part of DTLA. Also Not sure if the restaurant had fleas or what, but I left the restaurant with literally 12 bug bites on my feet.

    We had a large group and the service was very good for the size of our party. Seating was a little tight but understandable. Food was very tasty, maybe a little heavy on the salt on some dishes. My only criticism is a very limited wine selection for a Wine Bar. They should be offering more variety.

    Had a reservation but our table wasn’t ready when we arrived, however no big deal as we enjoyed just talking with friends while we waited. After being seated we ordered drinks & food, but were given no silverware when food arrived & then the waitress never returned until we flagged her down. We love visiting Bacari but disappointed with the lack of service on this visit.

    Food was prepared and cooked well and with intention. I had chilaquiles, french toast, and the spiced cauliflower. All dishes were flavorful, quick to arrive, and, with the exception of the egg on my chilaquiles, which had been accidentally cooked hard, everything was cooked perfectly. The cauliflower in particular had a great texture and the sauce was flavorful but not spicy. The chilaquiles was sauced perfectly so the chips were not too soggy or too crispy - and the green sauce was perfectly seasoned. The french toast had ripe, tender strawberries and bananas, was light and fluffy, and nicely toasted on all sides.

    The food is AMAZING. We had six plates and two desserts and each was incredible. The plates add up, so it’s not cheap, but it’s worth every penny. This was my second time there - and I’ll be back, even though I live in OC.
