    Nice to revisit Liberty Bar after a several year hiatus. The menu offered something for everyone. The food was excellent! The drinks were quite good. And the service was fantastic!

    I’ve always loved the lamb burger. It was too salty this time. The chicken with Hoja santa leaf was quite good - but the rice would be better served with some sauce.

    The atmosphere was very lovely and there was a lot of space. The server was attentive and anticipated our needs, however the food was cold (specifically the potatoes) and tasted as if they had heated up old potatoes and then sat too long and were then mushy/tastless. I also ordered a simple cocktail that was a price of a speciality cocktail and wasn’t very impressed. My friend ordered the quiche and that looked delicious but overall good ambiance catching up with friends.

    The menu has changed some due to pandemic. The quality of the food - super delicious, and beautiful presentation. A table of two shared the calamari, arugula salad, roasted vegetables and mediterranean plate, and two delicious cocktails. We both had yummy leftovers. Nice to be able to go there again. I think it's even better than before.

    Fantastic service! House made pasta was perfect and the oven roasted chili relleno is better than most Mexican restaurants. They always have experienced bar staff so cocktails are tasty. Monday nights are half off bottles of wine which was an unexpected perk.

    Cocktails were awesome and so was the service. Food and the menu choices were disappointing, they have not updated their website in ages and the actual menu was more limiting than what website showed. The interior decor def needs some renovation and update.

    Can’t beat their Monday 1/2 price on bottles of wine night. We all had delicious food. My choice: Chile rellenos en nogada which I’ve not found duplicated anywhere else in town. It really is special. However, it has moved from the appetizer menu to the entree section with a corresponding 60% increase in price.

    Fun spot in a historic neighborhood just outside the tourist spots of the riverwalk. Patio provides a charming place to eat. The inside of the restaurant has been redone with class while maintaining a historic feel. Food was good. Service was attentive.

    First, I’ve been to the Liberty Bar 2 times before and had great service. Horrible experience this last time. They sat my party of 2 near a big noisy party of 15 or so. This party has been drinking and were very loud. I wasn’t the only one annoyed by them. Waiter took 20 mins to come get our drink order but didn’t seem to be very attentive to my party since he was clearly overwhelmed with the big party of 15. Drinks took a long time to get to us and the waiter took forever to take our dinner order. Food was subpar. I hope they get their act together.

    Walking into the Liberty Bar is a treat. The ambiance and decor is old world eclectic. Love the church pews! Our server was friendly but getting anything from the kitchen was extremely slow. I ordered the rib eye and requested medium rare. When it finally arrived it was still purple and extremely rare. Our server apologized and sent it back. It was still extremely rare when I finally got it back. The manager was gracious and took it off our bill. I took it home and broiled it and it was delicious. I think front of house is well trained. The kitchen, however, needs alot of improvement.
