    As always, I loved going back to Barbella for food and beautiful ambiance. This time I went with my family and they all loved it! Thanks to the amazing server and of course the chefs for making it worth travelling 35 kms one way!!

    The food was exceptionally over salty; the gf rigate, lamb shoulder and tiramisu (never had something taste so horribly wrong). We've been here before where the food was exceptional but tonight was the exact opposite.

    Usually one out of three is not a good score but in the case of restaurants if the one is for the food then all is not lost. The food here is great like the other concord restaurants. The decor is very trendy but the noise on a Tuesday night was night club level. The service was pleasant but very uneven. Here’s an example, we’re seated for a few minutes and our waitress asks if we want something to drink, we say we would like to see the menu. She flips over our place mat to reveal the menu. Not everyone has been here before, the receptionist that seated us should have pointed this out. Dear diners please help me with an experiment. Order a glass of wine and tell us what you get. A 5oz pour, a 8oz pour or an explanation of the 2 types of glasses/pours. Hopefully the latter and they don’t just bring you an 8oz glass.

    We enjoyed our meal very much. Everything was tasty and met our expectations. Our only issue is that we were seated right at the door (the only table they had for our reservation) and it was the worst in the house. Every time the door opened there was a blast of cold and every person waiting for their table stood right beside us. Why there isn't some form of divider is weird!

    the service was impeccable, our waiter was knowledgeable on the menu, bubbly but not intruding our space, and more than happy to make suggestions. to start i ordered the crispy artichoke hearts, i ate all but 3 of them just to myself. 10/10 would order again my main was the campanelle pasta which had super rich cream sauce. i appreciated that the shrimps were cut small as opposed to left full with tails as i’m often accustomed to with seafood pasta dishes. i do wish it had something to cut the richness of the sauce and the seafood a bit but all in all it was a lovely dish, 8/10. my friend had the cavatelli which i had a couple bites of as well and that spicy sausage is such a good flavour note! i loved the cute little touch of the illustrated cocktail menu, and got the english garden as i’m a gin lover. it was delightful, and exactly what i was looking for. my friend does not drink alcohol, and originally just ordered a sprite but our waiter suggested one of their house sodas and my friend really enjoyed it! we were far too stuffed for dessert sadly but the options looked so tasty! this dinner was what i thought was a “girls night” but it was actually a rouse to get me all dolled up for later in the evening for my (now fiancé) to propose, and honestly i couldn’t have asked for a better dinner on a such a wonderful night

    Barbarella continues to impress. I've been here many time and I always recommended it to our executives who are looking to impress clients over lunch, happy hour drinks or dinner. The food is fantastic, portions are perfect and the cocktails impress. Our server was very attentive, but almost too attentive. Perhaps they are a newer hire. The service was still outstanding. By far one of the best restaurants in the city.
