    We were very happy with our dinner and drinks at Barbarella. They were able to accommodate us coming early to our reservation and our server was very pleasant. The cocktails were decent though I wish there was a larger variety (my personal preference would be a bourban based cocktail and it was mostly vodka and gin). Food was great and we were able to take our time and not feel rushed by the server.

    Hi Julia, We are so happy to see that you had a nice time with us on your recent visit! We will share your feedback with the appropriate team members. If there is ever anything that you are craving, please let your server know as we have a very wide selection on bourban and can get creative with it. We look forward to seeing you again soon! -Barbarella Bar Team

    My friend and I made a reservation during happy hour. To start, we were both able to order a drink and some food to share. We've come to expect mediocre service and the food and drinks are always great. Our server came over and asked if we would like another drink, and we both declined at the moment as our drinks were half full and a third full, but made it clear we would like more drinks later. After this, we did not see our server for at least 45 minutes. Other staff came over to clear our plates and drinks, but during these 45 minutes we weren't able to order anything else as our server was nowhere to be seen. Our service was so poor we felt as though we could have walked out and no one would've noticed or cared. She finally came back and went to all of the tables around us before finally coming over so that we could order another drink and made no mention about the large gap in time. A different staff brought our drinks to the table, and the next time we got our server's attention we asked for the bill so that we were able to leave asap and didn't have to wait even longer.

    Not sure if it is because I am at Barbarella all the time, but the staff went out of their way to accommodate my unreasonable demands. Made a reservation at 5:00 for two people but instead showed up with four. They were also 20 minutes late because Google Earth sent them to the wrong address. The Barbarella team found us a table that fit all four of us comfortably and no pressure to leave. I will be back again very soon...probably before the end of the week ;)

    It was hard to find a place open on mondays. I've never been here. The menu looked amazing, and it did not disappoint. So many places do italian, and it's all fuddy-duddy Tuscan / classico/traditional Nona food (which is fine, but it is done to death). This is modern, non pretentious, well priced, covetable dishes. We chose a seat on the patio and it wasn't too loud. I was so delighted with all our food choices. I also love the design / colour of the space. The servers and staff were genuinely friendly and caring. And it was very classy how they marked my dad's birthday :)

    Great place. Really enjoyed my dining experience there. I was alone and sat at the bar, made some friends and enjoyed a lovely pizza and and a delicious endive salad. The atmosphere was terrific. I would go again in a heartbeat.

    My wife and I needed a place for dinner before a theatre event. Having been to Barbarella only during the lunch hour, it made sense for us to try it out in the evening. We were not disappointed. Unfortunately, we just missed happy hour by 15 minutes, however, we enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine at the server’s recommendation, and simply had a dinner of shared plates from the appetizer and small plates list. These were all cooked to perfection and the delightful attending staff were friendly, interesting to talk to, and attentive. I highly recommend Barbarella for an early dinner and from having dined there a handful of times now can say that a visit there will not only be delightful, but memorable. A big shout out to Sophie (“Sopie” ha ha) who helped us have a terrific time.

    I took a client to Barbarella for lunch. The waiter was very attentive taking our drink order soon after being seated. We both ordered our entree’s and had time to discuss business matters. The food was served, it was warm (we were on the patio) and very tasty. Our drinks were replenished and additional toast ordered and received. Overall our food was very good as was the service.
