Horrible quality food and service! We ordered fish tacos..salad..and ceviche. The fish was really old and stinky we couldn't eat it (feel sick the next day from one bite). The salad was plain just arugula and ceviche was okay nothing special. They didn't offer us to order something else since the kitchens was closed. The food should be inspected!
The food is great but overly expensive. Despecially the duck entre which is just a giant bowl of rice with some duck in it. There was no warning that that is what we were ordering.
The food is extremely flavourful. The Yuca Frita is a must-try! The tres leche cake is delectable!!!
This is my second time here. The food was the reason that drew me back. Everything on the menu is great. Service is awesome. I will for sure come back and also recommend this to friends.
Had a great anniversary dinner at Baro. Service was great, food was delicious, and the drinks were awesome. Will certainly be back.
Food was very good, very cool ambience. The chips are various root vegetables chips not only corn tortillas, Guacamole was espectacular!
Pisco Sour and Baro Sour drinks were very tasty as well!
One of the best restaurants experiences I have had! Food was amazing, every dish we tried was delicious. Our server made choosing our share plates much easier and her recommendations were great! Best service I have received in any restaurant, will definitely be back!
Amazing food and energetic ambience. Staff was super friendly and so welcoming. I would highly recommend.
Great spot, great food, great service, however music was a little too loud to hold a proper conversation in a group. There were 5 of us and it was difficult for us to hear each other from across the table which was a pity because everything else was fantastic!
Amazing unique food, engaging staff, and a great modern atmosphere
Had our Anniversary Dinner at Baro Saturday night. We were given a complimentary dessert of house-made Alfajores and the hostess offered us tickets to a TIFF show that evening! A great date night on King Street!
Brunch for two!
Arrived Saturday afternoon for a brunch. Loved the interiors - spacious, open, cozy and eclectic. Shared the Empenadas and Chori Papi (egg skillet dish). Food was on point. Flavourful and creative. Service was also great.
Would return again for dinner!
Food is always on point. Our server Laura was very atttentative. Always a great experience.
Great food and the atmosphere is nice. The prices are reasonable too for the potion sizes.
The manager was nice and made sure our food was good.
It was awesome
Friendly hosts, great atmosphere, service was average.... expected to be wowed by the food but was unimpressed. Inca trail salad was salty, tiradito was presented beautifully although sweetness from the passionfruit & lulo was over powering, chicken wings were average. Emapandas were a tasty starter, and churros a sweet crispy end, everything in between not so much.
They had no air conditioning and had fans around the restaurant. Brutal to eat in 35 degree weather next to the kitchen. No compensation, or drink offer. Not even the 3$ popsicle at end of night. Bad customer service. Disappointed. We won’t be coming back.
All was great but Ac was out and it was so hot! Food and service were great!
Great vibe, loved the music. Delicious food and great service! Will be back and will recommend it to friends!
Service was slow and portion sizes were huge!
Really nice food, great timing, ambiance, efficient and pleasant service. No complaints! Good sharing dishes too
Great night but music a bit loud for conversation
The food and service was great, but after being there for two hours, we were asked to leave coz they needed the table to accommodate other guests. Kind of disappointing, but nonetheless a great place to dine:)
This was the second time we've been to Baro. I was there Saturday for my birthday. I really loved how the staff had a birthday card for me. That was really sweet!
Our waitress was very attentive and friendly and the menu is really easy to uderstand and the food is fantastic! It was flavorful without been overpowering. And the empanadas in the brown bag is such a creative touch. The music is wonderful. It really adds to the ambiance. The chairs are so comfortable.
Not only was the food good. But I got a cookie for my birthday. I thought that was really sweet.
I would definitely come back and tell my friends about it!
Thank you for the enjoyable experience.
Great food. Great staff. Great atmosphere. You won’t be disappointed.
Service was amazing and food was even better. I was really impressed with the flavor in all the food choices
Delicious food and terrific service. I highly recommend this place for a great night out.
Really good food/customer service. First timers will not be disappointed!
1st time my friends dinned at baro..
they loved the food as ww did.. looking forward to coming back again..
Great restaurant/bar with an outstanding atmosphere. Great sharing plates that are easy to portion between multiple people. A little pricey, but definitely worth it, the duck confit fried rice is so delicious!
We selected Baro in hopes that it would be a lively venue with reasonable noise level to accommodate a visiting client for a semi-casual business dinner. Baro lived up to this an more. The place is tastefully decorated and the food/drinks are exceptional.
Excellent food and service. Appreciated the help with the menu and the descriptions of the food as it arrived.
The menu changes every two-three months which I find very nice. There is a wide variety of drinks and entres. The hostess and waiter were very helpful and polite. The ambience and decor is very nice. I look forward going back.
Very good experience! The food was awesome and the person waiting our table was so kind and helpful it really enhanced our experience.
The staff and ambiance are first-class; the server's were very knowledgeable and super-friendly, hostess was great, and the chef's came out and provided a detailed description of the meals. The fish taco was delicious, the chori papa and duck chaufa were also great, although I would have liked a bit more and chunkier pieces of chorizo and duck in each dish respectively. The red sangria was not too good, and almost tasted like it was powdered. Some fresh fruit in the bottom would have gone a long way.
Serve hot food with some sort of bread , at list with entree which has broth like beef tenderloin.Plan and organize service,adjust serving food from kitchen and front of the house server and communicate to each other.
Nice place with friendly staff. Loved the taste of the fresh ingredients. The cocktails were expertly made and attentive servers! Left a great impression on me
As I said in my first review, we will be back and back we came! Very attentive and helpful staff. Our hostess recommended heading up to the second floor lounge for a pre-drink while we waited for our other guests to arrive. Nice ambiance and good selection of appetizers. When we returned to the restaurant for our meal a suggested was made that four of us share the "Eat like Jefe" which is a complete meal of Ceviches, Chorizo Tortillas, Duck Chaufa (think of it as Latin American meets Korean Bibibab!) and a perfectly medium rare prepared steak with avocado and yuca fries. Everything came at a good pace and the flavours and preparation perfect. It was a great "family style" sharing experience. No room for desert this time! One request, during traditional dining hours (like before 8:30 / 9:00 PM) turn down the music a little so we can hear our table conversation. Yes I know King Street West is a busy night out / party area, but we go out to enjoy the food and talk (not yell) across the table.
The ceviche is always amazing. Great menu for family style dining and sangria or margarita pitchers.
