    Nice patio. The music was a bit too loud outside for our tastes though. The music volume inside would have been perfect for us, however. Food was good, but not outstanding.

    Thank you DavidC for your review. We will definitely look into the music. We never want the volume to interfere with our guests' dining experience. We hope to see you back in the future.

    The ambience is really nice. The interior is modern and sleek. There is an exterior patio with a lovely modern fire pit and heaters. The cocktails are inventive and well-made. The food is excellent. We both had salads and cheesecake and really enjoyed them. Our server was not the greatest, but the bartender, host, and other staff were very helpful so it didn't impact our service time, and food arrived fresh.

    Thank you so much for your review AlishaO. We are so happy to see you enjoyed your stay. We will follow up with the server to ensure proper service for the future. We hope you'll be back in the future.

    Great location if going to Symphony Hall or nearby attractions. Burger was great! Chicken caprese sandwich was ok just very bland. A splash of balsamic would have really helped bring out the flavor. Menu not too big. Drinks list good. Would go again but try something different.

    Thanks for the review, SarahD! We just launched our Spring menu with several new items we think you'll love. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

    People might not realize it, but this restaurant replaced the old Networks at the downtown Hyatt. It is a wonderful reimagining. The new Barrel & Bush Restaurant is bright and bustling. Good variety of food and drink. The presentation is very good and the food was fine. But it was very loud, crowded and slow. The location is perfect for access to sports & entertainment downtown. But be sure to make reservations in advance and allow plenty of time before your event.

    The food was of high quality, well cooked, and uncomplicated. The tables were crowded together and it was hard to get in or out. The service is still in training. We called several times the day before and the day of to get information about food allergies, but they never answered and only called us back an hour before the reservation. The wait staff were rushed, they got the substitution wrong, they disappeared for long periods, they forgot our drink order, they over billed two meals by $15 each, and they ran the credit cards for the wrong bill.
    Barrel & BushelResponded on March 10, 2020
    Thank you so much for your honest review. We are terribly sorry for not being able to respond to your inquiries in a timely manner. We will follow up with the service team about the poor service you received with dining with us. We do know we have some issues to resolve and are working diligently to do so. Our new spring menu rolled out this week. We hope to welcome you back in the future.

    We were downtown for the theatre which is about 4 blocks away. The restaurant was very accommodative of our group of 11. Had a great burger and everybody seemed to enjoy the food.

    I took my sister here for dinner for her birthday. We had the maple salmon and it was the most delicious salmon I have ever had. The service was incredible. From the moment we walked in until we left the staff was courteous, friendly and very professional. I never felt rushed by the staff. Thank you for a great evening!

    I wanted to like this place but that would not be the case. On a positive note the ambiance was really nice. Very urban chic and comfortable. That was the end of the positive. There were six of us. We sat down , ordered drinks and dinner and then waited for a bit before five of the six drinks came out. Three were martinis with the glasses half full in a normal sized glass. Ok, at $17 a drink can you just fill it up? So we waited and waited for the 6th drink to come. Suddenly the food comes out...no drink. We asked where it was and then it finally showed up again half full. Omg. So food. I got a grilled chicken sandwich on a giant pretzel bun. Chicken was thin and rubbery and small but bun was good. The big bun hid the tiny cutlet. Smart! My husband got steak and he said it was overly salty. The rest of our dining partners were not happy with there meals either. We finally addressed the drink issue to the manager. His excuse on the half-filled drinks was that the glasses were big. Go to AZ 88 and check out their glasses. They are big. These were not. Just normal sized. Pretty laughable excuse. Needless to say we will NOT be back.

    Wanted to try the new restaurant after seeing the grand opening mentioned on social media. The location was great and the restaurant is beautiful. The outdoor patio was perfect. Things seemed disorganized - our food was cold so it must have sat for awhile before being served. No one asked us how our food was. Food quality was average at best. We knew it had just opened and they were working out kinks - maybe not the best time to try a restaurant but it wasn’t what we had hoped it would be. Probably won’t go back.

    Horrible all around. Ended up eating somewhere else. Server was sweet but they are not prepared or staffed to handle a Friday night crowd. Drinks took over 30 min, appetizers were cold and table was not even stocked with napkins/silverware

    Barrel & Bushel has a great location and upbeat vibe. I took my business team here for dinner and everyone enjoyed their food. Atmosphere was a little loud of a group of 6, but for a smaller group it wouldn't be a problem at all. The layout of the place tripped us up a bit with two entrances and only one waiting area, but we figured it out with a little help from the wonderful staff. Food was good-- the usual burgers, salads, etc.-- and wine was great! Not the biggest selection of gluten-free options outside of salads, but the salad and wings were filling.

    While the menu isn't very extensive, what we had was fine. Agree with another reviewer that the paper towel rolls (to be used as napkins) on the tables would be more appropriate in a BBQ spot. I would certainly recommend this restaurant as a before theater meal if you're attending something at the Herberger Theater Center and can't get a reservation at one of the more popular spots in the neighborhood.

    The restaurant is inside the Hyatt Hotel so parking is a challenge in downtown. The restuarant has recently been remodeled and very well done. They have a full beer tap seating area. The service was exceptional and courteous. The meals are well plated and prepared in a look through kitchen.

    Well, bland, terrible food. The descriptions sound so fantastic and you get your food and you wonder if you read the menu right. Odd layout for a restaurant. Host greeted us with an untucked shirt and sat us at a dirty table. I also don’t understand the paper towel/condiments on the table. This isn’t Texas bbq. Do they know that? Well, we came, we ate, we won’t be back.
