    Overall a great place was very pleased plenty of parking the reservation with open table was great. I'm glad we got there for 6:15 reservation I do think that as the evening goes on the service gets a little bit more distracted and the place gets a little bit noisier so if you want a more of a quiet time plan on making an earlier reservation. Food was great prices are what I expected everything was in line. Good drink selection plenty of surf and turf. I would not necessarily recommend the restaurant for small children but I think it's great for teens and above.

    We have eaten at La Barca twice this summer and found the food and ambience wonderful. We had Anthony as our server both those times and found him to be a very engaging server. Would highly recommend but hope their menu in the future expands and gets a bit more varied

    We were promptly seated to an excellent table. Immediately, our waiter asked for our drink order. Dry attentive but not over-bearing. Food was delicious. I got the bucatini. It was a little heavy, as the waiter warned. Ricotta app was amazing! View of harbor is priceless. We’re going back!

    Our dining experience was better than 5 stars!!! Staff could not have been more efficient. Food was absolutely amazing - I ordered the Bronzino as my entree. It was my first time to LaBarca and I had heard mixed reviews. Let me say - there was nothing mixed about the evening (except my dirty martini). Will be returning there very soon.

    Second visit to La Barca and overall we enjoyed everything. The cocktail menu is unique and the drinks were quite good. The crab avocado bruschetta was a delicious appetizer as was the pancetta wrapped shrimp. We had a party of 5 and we all agreed that the main entrees tasted quite salty. Good but just too salty. Having had a couple of the same entrees before on our first visit we are thinking just a fluke and will certainly be back.

    Parking is a problem especially if you arrive after 6:30!on a Friday. Not sure what it is like on other weekend nights. Could use more parking. People were waiting for someone to pull out of a parking space. Enjoyed everything else about the restaurant. Good water views. A bit pricey.

    We’ve never experienced such an awful meal from stale bread to ignorant managers to lack of service from everyone but the hostess! We wouldn’t even recommend this place for a drink & an app. :(

    I would wait until they get all the kinks out. We had reservations and was seated right away but, didn't get drinks or bread for over an hour. Waiter couldn't remember if we got our entrees, which we didn't and it was 1 hour and 45 minutes later. For oyster bar you would think they would have someone who knew how to shuck them. Shells were in them and oysters weren't detached from shell, wasn't served with all Condiments either. Food was over cooked, bread was stale, mussels weren't fresh. I hate giving a bad review but, just want others to be aware. I read reviews and they were all good, don't understand unless we hit a very bad night. I will try again but, not until the fall.

    We arrived about 615 and the menu was extensive but we wanted app so we ordered two salads and four apps for the table there wasn’t one thing that wasn’t fabulous, especially the beet salad and the tuna poke The hostess was accommodating we got to sit by the window which was lovely and as the place filled up is it get a little noisy however the highlight of our evening was Jonah our server the most personable entertaining and lovely young man who served us could night have had a nicer server

    I was excited to try this place since it has been taken over by new ownership. Unfortunately it seems the new owners have done absolutely nothing to make changes. The interior is dated, and sad. The service at the front door was lackluster. Did not even get a thank you or goodbye as we were leaving. The food was seriously horrible. I ordered a steak cooked medium well. It came very well done. When we told our server she said she would let the chef know but that's where it ended. No chef or manager came out to say sorry, no adjustment to the bill. My husband ordered the gnocchi that came highly recommended by our server. It was just ok. Nothing special. Then we ordered dessert. Ordered the pistachio creme brûlée , and I am a creme brûlée fanatic so was excited to try a different kind. It was beyond gross. Came out cold, green and absolutely no crispy top that creme brûlée is known for. To sum it up, if you are going because you want to ambiance of sitting on the water to look at all of the boats, go ahead, order a drink and maybe some apps. But if you are going there and expecting to get a good meal, look somewhere else. Was not impressed and will not return.

    Odd is the best way to describe our night here. The food is solid, especially the crab and corn chowder and their LaBarca Sour. But even just getting into the restaurant (and trying to determine whether we were even in the right place) was an adventure. The parking lot is a full 75 yards or so away (not complaining about walking, mind you) in front of house that look like they’ve been plucked out of Central Florida. To then get to the unlabeled LaBarca, you’ll go through a second parking lot that looks like it’s a lost sibling of Lincoln Financial Field’s K Lot. It’s a shame because inside the servers are kind and attentive and the menu certainly is quite appealing. Unfortunately, I can’t say that we’d go back, though I’m glad we gave it a shot.
