Outstanding!! Each dish was better than the one before it!! Highly recommend for a nice date night! We will definitely be back 😋😋
Some of the most creative and delicious food I’ve ever had!
Best food in the South Bay!
The restaurant is a charm that we have been too a few times now. The space is small but the team makes it work. The food is delicious; every bite has a great flavor to it.
Consistently delicious. Fabulous chef.
Great stop. Love eating here where people really care about the food!
We hadn't been to Baran's in a while and it was just as fantastic as we remembered. We sat at the bar and had incredible service from the owner and every member of the wait staff. We started off with cheese and charcuterie which was very plentiful and presented beautifully. Then we ordered about 5 different items from the menu ranging from the shaved brussels sprout salad (fantastic!) to the Indian egg (so innovative!) to the Squid Ink Gnocci with King Crab (seriously decadent... more crab than gnocci on the plate!). We paired our dishes with wines by the glass, each of us ordering a different wine so we could taste eachother's. It was an amazing meal that left us excited to return soon!
As always, the food was outstanding, the service was impeccable, always a wonderful experience! Thank you to the Barans.
This is a neighborhood gem. It's small, intimate and the service and food is exceptional. I have been many times and have never been disappointed. The smoked friend chicken is amazing and my favorite the Indian Egg is so delicious. You can always find something new along with the favorites on the menu. Their wine list is very good but I usually bring a special bottle of my own. The corkage is $25 for the first bottle which I'm more than happy to pay. Must say since I'm a wine lover I do appreciate their good wine glasses!
I would say it's be best food in the South Bay, they really respect the food and it shows in all of their dishes.
So much good food with wonderful staff and friends!
birthday dinner. great food. pricey. noisy.
highly recommend baran’s! food and service were great. the king fish ceviche and rigatoni were the best. make sure you make a reservation in advance because it gets full!
We love this restaurant and it is our favorite in our neighborhood. The staff are professional and friendly, the food is creative and delicious and the ambiance is cosy and upbeat.
The food is creative and delicious. The service is excellent. However, the noise level is way to high. It's not easy to have a conversation without shouting.
It had been a couple of years since we’ve been, the food was spot on !
Another enjoyable experience at this very unique and hip bistro. Attentive friendly knowledgeable service. All the dishes ordered were spot on. The Ceviche is my favorite. Fried chicken was delcious. I'll be back soon guys. One of my favorite restaurants!
Not our fav food . Too many layers of flavors. We like cleaner food
Big fan of the small plate format, 4 with their house made focaccia and umami butter was good for the 2 of us. Favorite was the shaved Brussels sprout salad with dates, radicchio and hazelnuts.
Sat at the bar and we were very well tended by owner Jon Baran.
Not often in Hermosa Beach, but will definitely eat here if we are.
The mains were very good. The side vegetables were mediocre.
We will come back and explain how improve the vegetables cooking.
Overall a positive experience.
Small plates were very good to excellent and we liked the choreography. The plates were delivered to the table one at a time and evenly spaced instead of coming out all at once. Some portions were more generous than others but overall adequate except for the price, especially the seafood. For example, the price of 3 scallops at Baran's is equivalent to a full entree size at high-end restaurants. My husband and I generally avoid small plate menus because these meals end up considerably more expensive. I hear this complaint from people all the time. I also take issue with the price of the wine, a complaint not directed only at Baran's. A six ounce pour for $14-$18 is absurd. Why even bother with a a 3 ounce pour for $3 less? Two sips and the glass is empty. Everyone in our group of four drank one glass, which added almost $70 to our bill. This is clearly price gauging, pure and simple.
Wait staff was super attentive, food was generous portions and all were very tasty. The pace of the service and food delivery were excellent!
Every single dish is amazing! Great service too! We had the halibut, shrimp tostada, shaved brussel sprouts and red kale along with a few bottles of wine. Dishes are meant to be shared. One of my favorite restaurants in South Bay
Food and service were excellent. Highly recommend.
Always a great meal here. A South Bay fave. Fresh ingredients and incentive dishes with wonderful service.
The food is amazing and very unique. Would definitely go back and recommend it to all my friends. Loved it!!
The menu had a nice variety and the food was good. The desserts were good as well.
Creative recipes, tasty food, fresh and local; high noise level, somewhat cramped space; friendly servers
The food was great and unique
One of my "FAV" restaurants in The South Bay. It is a must visit! The food is unique and delish!
The atmosphere is small, quaint and personal. :)
Cuisine is fantastic. Emphasis is on specific flavors and the menu has many heathy options!
Jason has a special thing going! Great wines, great food, efficient and excellent service.
The food is delicious and the service is very friendly and welcoming. The menu consists of small plates of seasonal thoughtful items. I love this restaurant.
Good experience except the waiter charged us for a bottle of wine, when we only had a glass. Had to send the bill back. On such an occasion a classy place would've comped the glass of wine.
Price just doesn’t seem in line with other local options
Amazing food - super nice staff - passionate about the restaurant. Love this place after two visits and will be back.
Amazing food... Expensive, but with it for the quality. Fantastic service. Our waiter was excellent. We will definitely be back!
Luv this place ! Food is always on point . Made to perfection. Would definitely come back recommend this place to all .
One of the BEST restaurants not only in the South Bay but all of Los Angeles
I love this restaurant! Very friendly staff and great food. This was our third meal there and we will be back!
Excellent food! Great wine selection and service. Could use a little sound dampening in the ceiling - was difficult to hear the person across the table from me when the restaurant was busy.
