    Fantastic service, delicious meal, and stellar drinks. I was blown away by the cerviche de atun, it was the recommendation of our server and my partner and I loved it. The chips that came along with it were perfectly salted and crispy also. For our main course, we shared the pollo asado and truffle cassava frites, which had an amazing mouth feel and paired delightfully. The building itself has a gorgeous view, great music, and an all around very nice ambiance. Thanks for a great evening!

    Went for a birthday celebration and was greeted right away. Very accommodating as we we're slow eaters ( they have a limit of 2 hours) and we had to double check if we can extend the time to finish our food. Food we're delicious. I'm glad our server let us know that the dishes were large to avoid ordering dishes we can't finish. It wasn't too full, so the noise and ambiance were perfect for us. We will definitely come back. Thank you for a wonderful service and food.

    The overall experience was great, I would definitely come back. Food is amazing and the server was very kind too! My date and I experienced few little things what could look disturbing from a side. We received quite dusty plates in the beginning and once the plates were changed under my request, new ones were dusty as well (had some crumbs on them and once I tried to wipe them, the tissue was grey). Also, there was something dripping from the ceiling sometimes, very rarely, so we didn’t want complain about it. Our lamp was changing its light by itself what was funny to us but also a little bit awkward to sit down with one unique lamp from other tables😅 Service was still outstanding and the girl who helped us was very attentive!

    The food was overpriced for the portion sizes. Our lamb had a huge piece of fat on it. The entire dish was not worth the cost, in my opinion. The ceviche was lovely. The caesars were outstanding. The waitress charged us for a fourth caesar which we did not drink, and we asked her to make the correction. The chips with the ceviche should be included in the price. Paying $6.00 for chips which go along with the ceviche seemed cheap, considering the cost of the food. It would have been a nice courtesy.

    I'd suggest that the Honeycomb group rearrange their website to make it more user friendly. I really enjoyed the food at Baro the first time I went, which is why I wanted to gift my parents a dinner there. I googled “baro giftcard” and purchased a gift card for $200. I didn't know what Dasha was but the site has three separate links for gift cards on their site. I had used the first link. Only later did I realize it was 3 different restaurants. I called Baro (didn't answer) so I called Dasha. Management told me that since it's all part of Honeycomb they can use the cards for all 3 establishments. My parents went in and double checked with staff at Baro and they said that they weren't able to use the card. I then spoke to the host via phone and they confirmed the gift card could be used. When the cheque came it was still a bigger prodess and many staff came out to see if they could use the card. I'd suggest honeycomb socialize what the correct process is to all their staff so they can avoid this, and make it clearer on the website (mobile and web) that there are three establishments under honeycomb and to choose which restaurant you want the giftcard for before processing a payment.

    The crowd/ambiance and decor exceeded my expectations and were excellent. The wait staff was also super-attentive and pleasing. The only downside was afterwards 3 out of our group of 4 felt a bit sick later that night and the next morning. Possible culprit were the boiled/roasted potatoes because the person that didn’t get sick didn’t have them but otherwise the food was excellent. Hopefully just a one-off because I thought the taste and presentation of everything we ordered was great.

    I enjoyed almost everything about this place. The food, the ambiance and the service except for one thing; the music level was excessively loud. So loud that you had to shout when talking. This affected the whole experience so much that I didn't want to stay longer than I had.

    We had a great experience at Baro! It was my partners birthday and the staff all signed a lovely card as well as gifted us a box of cookies. The food was incredible and service remarkable! I highly recommend the steak and sticky toffee cake for desert. We would definitely recommend Baro to our friends and look forward to returning soon :)

    Overall the food was delicious and we had a great experience! The only faults are that they took away our beer and wine menu (and took forever to get back), it was hard to get wait staff attention when we were ready to order, and the size and taste of the food for how much you're paying seems imbalanced.

    Service was great, friendly, accomodating, fast... food was good, found the steak to be a little overcooked than previous time - but only downside for me, was it being quite loud. For a nice anniversary dinner found it a lot louder than I expected, But maybe I am just getting old :D

    The OG Duck Chaufa at this restaurant was absolutely fantastic. The ambiance and vibe were wonderful, but it was disappointingly loud. While the staff were generally friendly, our waiter was overly intrusive, frequently interrupting our meal. Despite this, I'm already looking forward to my next reservation at Baro.

    Ambience was good, service was great. But unfortunately food did not taste that great. I had Parmesan scallops which were decent but the Parmesan cheese overpowered the flavor of scallops. I had also ordered the OG duck fried rice but VEGAN. I think the flavors of fried rice wasn’t balanced. There was too much soy sauce. I think both the dishes were okay. They lacked the correct balance between ingredients that made both the dishes taste okay and not great.

    The brunch was amazing, very flavourful. The lobster Benedict and the Panqueques ( pancakes ) were absolutely delicious. Although the cocktails seemed a little too pricey, they costed almost as much as the main dishes. Overall great brunch spot !
