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.

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.

There were four of us and we shared three items. A large salad, and two entrees. We brought a bottle of wine and they charged $25 corkage. One person drank Chardonnay which was really expensive- 4 ounce pour was $19 so glad we paid corkage on the bottle. Food was good, service excellent but it’s a little too pricey and very loud. I enjoyed it and would try again but maybe on a week night.

One of my favorite restaurants, Always great food & service! Unfortunately we were seated next to a very loud foursome this time. In all our visits I don’t remember it ever being this loud, could not hear my husband sitting across from me.

One of our favorite spots in the South Bay!
Amazing food and service. It's such a charming little spot tucked away in an unassuming block.
Their smoked/fired chicken is a must!!

A creative menu and every dish is a winner! We made a reservation and wound up sitting at the bar where we had an opportunity to speak with one of the owners, which just added to the overall pleasure of the experience. The wine list has some unusual labels and each of the glasses we ordered was delicious. If you want a great meal in the South Bay in an intimate setting (don't let the little strip mall location dissuade you), this is it!

Baran's is by far the best restaurant in the South Bay. Their creativity with the food and the amazing service with the staff is bar none. I would recommend Baran's to anyone, for a small intimate dinner or for a group of friends....either way there will not be any disappointment.

Definitely the best food and service in Hermosa! The chef is creative and accommodating to those with food allergies without sacrificing flavor. Excellent wines. The staff is beautiful, friendly and very efficient. They even make the effort to remember what you have had before and ask about the children when they don’t join us. Worth the drive if your not from the area.
