    I came here for a late Mother’s Day celebration. The hostess Avery was so warm and welcoming, and gave us an amazing table, our server Victoria was super sweet and delighted us with dessert for our special day, and the manager Zac gave my mom flowers and great recommendations. Overall an outstanding experience and the food was delicious. I will definitely come here again. -Caroline

    Managed to get a table on Cinco de Mayo. Mariachi band was an awesome surprise! Food was outstanding. Had the EAT LIKE PAPI board. Everything was incredible. Must haves : Ceviche de Atun Mac Con Champinones The RIB EYE was probably the best cut of meat I have ever had - and I am an avid carnivore. Amy was a fantastic server! (So was Harrison)

    Baro is such a beautiful place and the food hasn’t disappointed me yet. I recommend the chips and salsa, bbq chicken, lamb skewers and the churros. My suggestion, get the churros with a side of vanilla ice cream and you won’t regret it. I wasn’t a fan of the empanadas or the sticky toffee pudding, not to say they weren’t prepared well.. just wasn’t for me.

    Ambiance was great and the manager was very accommodating. All the food was spicy, even though they said it wasnt, the adults enjoyed their meals but we had an 8 year old who couldnt eat any of the dinner items. She had chips and ice cream for dinner. Regardless of her age, they should have been more accurate in terms of non-spicy options.

    In contrast to our expectations, the food quality was mediocre. The burgers were almost tasteless. Overall not bad for trying it once, but nothing special about Baro.

    The signature duck’Chauva’ is basically salty and bad bastardized soya sauce fried rice without barely an inkling of shredded duck. ‘Chow fan’ in any dirty Chinese restaurant would’ve tasted better for 5 bucks. Avoid,at least this ‘signature’ dish. Do yourself a favour.

    My family and I had the best experience at Baro! You guys went above and beyond to make my Mom’s birthday memorable and I can’t thank you enough. I’m especially grateful to the hosts for accommodating my seating request and for being so sweet and welcoming. Our servers Ethan and Shalale were so attentive and helped us select dishes we really enjoyed. The Papas Rellenas and Lamb Barbacoa are must tries and I’ll definitely be back to explore more of the menu. A special thank you to Zack for his kindness and professionalism!

    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 :)
