The food was excellent. The service was great. We will definitely be returning
Outstanding dining experience. What a treat to have such an extraordinary restaurant in the neighborhood. With the plethora of mediocre corporate owned overpriced joints this place truly shines. Bravo!
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!!
Best restaurant in the South Bay
Happy Valentine's Day indeed. We had a lovely meal of pasta, fried chicken and a great brussel sprout salad. The butter cake was yummy.
Always a lovely time at this fine restaurant.
It is a blessing to Hermosa Beach.
Great service and awesome food.
Can’t wait to go back!
Really not into the small plates sort of thing, but the food was very good.
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!
Outstanding food with top notch service
Loved it, great neighborhood restaurant with a changing menu. We will be back.
Greatest food I’ve eaten in all of Los Angeles. Food is unique and always delicious. Staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu/ingredients
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.
Seated right away. Food was good and interesting, a little pricey for the portions. Servers were attentive.
Arrived early, nice corner table. Friendly wait staff. Intensely tasty food
Everything was amazing. The staff is attentive and their recommendations were perfect. We can't wait to go back.
Great food and great service. Will be back again soon.
Great food, great service...thats what I always look forward.
5:00pm on a Tuesday and we were rushed through our entire meal. Dessert was on the table before we even finished our last dish. Food was okay, too spicy for my liking.
We will be back!
Unbelievable! We seriously had such a great time for our date at this restaurant. We had been recommended it a few times, and we finally made it a priority to go. SOOOOO WORTH IT! Phenomenal food. Great service. Plenty of options. Seriously was the best date night. Thank you so much Baran Squad!
Always stellar...the most unique food selection. Staff always friendly attentive staff.
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.
Always love it - the food is incredible and the owners are wonderful
Fairly good food and really excellent service. We had the steak tartare, shrimp, ceviche, and Brussel sprouts. All were good, and the shrimp and Brussel sprouts were excellent. Very reasonable pricing, convenient parking in a mini-mall.
Absolutely wonderful food my second time hadn't been in a while but all the new items I enjoyed with so much flavor.
Intensely flavorful and creative, perfectly executed dishes. Expensive, but worth it.
Good time. Good waiter. Too loud
Baran’s never disappoints. The shrimp tostadas is insane. That might be my favorite.
By far the best restaurant around here. It's not even a close comparison.
It was the first time my friend and I went as a belated birthday dinner. The staff was pleasant and so helpful in their recommendations. The food is all made in house and not to mention PHENOMENAL!! We also really like the ambiance of the place. We cannot wait to go back.
great place! food is tasty yet not stuffy. a little nosy but not terrible. smaller place so be ready for your neighbor to be close but its manageable. a few seats at the bar and the communal table are great spots.
A friend and I had a great dinner. The carrot melody, foie gras, and elk were perfect for sharing.
This was our second visit to Baran’s 2239. We heard about it from friends and though we are not near the South Bay (DTLA and Huntington Beach), it is worth the trip. The family that runs it is on top of everything, making you feel welcome from the minute you enter, and looking out for you throughout the meal. The beer and wine selections are diverse and great. But it is the food that really stars. We haven’t had a bad dish yet. This time we tried the signature Indian Egg, and it was as delicious and unique as we had heard. The ceviche and shrimp tostada also really stood out. We took friends there this time, and the dishes were great for sharing. Barans is now one of my favorite restaurants, and though it’s a bit of a trek for me, I’ll be back. That’s saying something!
From start to finish.
Love this place. Excellent and innovative flavor combinations.
there is nothing but good things to say about Baran’s, from the food to the service. Nestled in an unassuming strip mall between a smoke shop and a kebab restaurant, the menu items are cooked and presented like you would only find from top chefs in 5 star restaurants. The restaurant is owned and run by two brothers, and they will both come to your table and make sure all is good. Our first meal was so great, I was almost afraid the second wouldn’t compare. I was wrong. The shrimp avocado tostada is topped with the restaurants own version of a pico de gallo which I will keep trying to replicate. The crispy seabass over some sort of plantain is not like anything I’ve had before, but I will keep ordering it. The filet, was cooked perfectly and mouthwateringly good. The chicken, equally tasty and delicious. We will be coming back again and again to this neighborhood spot; for birthdays, special occasions or any excuse just to get the buttery bundt cake for dessert.
I love this place, food is always amazing and changes often. The service is impeccable, one of my favorite places to dine.
Food and Service are both excellent.
