    My hubby and I absolutely love Baran’s 2239 Both the service and ambiance give you the feeling of being a guest in their home. Chef Tyler’s food is creative, beautiful (don’t we all eat with our eyes first?!) and always delicious! Baran’s 2239 is our go-to spot for special occasions, date night or family dinners. Cheers!

    Baran's is our favorite restaurant in the South Bay, we absolutely love coming here. Everything on the menu is incredible and the menu is constantly changing so we're always excited to come back and try new things. The focacia bread, smoked and fried chicken, and toffee pudding are our staple favorites, but we haven't had anything we didn't like from here. The staff and service is also great. Perfect for a date night or any special occasion.

    Baran's 2239 is a cute, unassuming little blink-and-you'll-miss-it restaurant in a tiny strip mall in Hermosa Beach. But walking inside, it feels casual but chic with a large communal table in the middle, tables on either wall and a small bar in back. The wine selection was great and the food was superb. The bass was the star of the meal with the browned butter yuzu sauce and persimmons. Omg. My only complaint is we felt rushed. They have a 90 minute limit to your meal, but we were out in 70 minutes. Everything came out super quick and our server was very attentive, but it was almost too fast, and our check came with the dessert, which I'm guessing was because they're strict about the time limit and she needed to turn over our table. I'm not sure if the reason is they're trying to get as many people in as possible, but I would honestly rather pay more to not have a limit, or have it be 2 hours. For as good as the food and ambiance is, they could definitely charge more and just make it a little more exclusive. We have a toddler at home so a nice dinner out is a real rarity for us and we would have liked to savor it a bit more. But, I think when a customer's main complaint is they wanted to spend more time in your restaurant, you're doing pretty damn well.

    We love this restaurant. Very personal, family-owned, no trace of corporate branding. The food is beautiful, and my wife (an excellent cook) loves it. Noise level is quite moderate, though an occasional noisy group might be having a lot of fun. The staff are hospitable and knowledgeable, polite without being servile. And not a thing about this place feels focus-grouped! We will be going there a lot more.

    Food and service are excellent. The restaurant is very small and you get to know the table next to you very well — which is not a bad thing. It adds to the fun. You see what the table next door is eating and you can ask for a quick review. If they rave about I always add it to my table. Word of warning though, I have never asked about a dish and not have the person rave about it. Barans is that good and unique.

    This restaurant was absolutely worth the hype. We shared the focaccia, Indian Egg, agnolotti, and roasted brussels sprouts. Everything was superb. The wines-by-the-glass list is thoughtful and very fairly priced. The bartender was great about helping us select wines to drink with the food.

    We we're able to get a table and it was so worth the wait. Everything we ordered was elegant and delicious and the service was sublime. The small footprint keeps the noise level low and the wine list has plenty of selection to pull it all together. Can't wait to go back!
