Elegant dining outdoors. White tablecloths on the table, carpeting-an overall fine dining experience. The salmon was cooked to perfection and the tri color salad was delicious. I am definitely returning.

I was never a fan of outdoor dining but during these times there isn't a choice.
It was a relatively cool night so it was pleasant.
They did a good job of setting up the space to make it look nice and the tables were well spaced.
They followed the guidlines by wearing masks and gloves.
The only drawback was the proximity to Rt 3 and the noise from the passing cars and trucks. It was a minor inconvenience.
The food was great and I never felt rushed.
Overall it was a good evening and I am looking forward to being able to dine indoors again.

Celebrating a friends engagement and they were nice enough to bring out a small dessert and surprise them. Food has always been amazing and good amount for their price point. We love the potatoes with the long hots.

My 2nd time there and the food both times was rally good. However, we had two issues with this last visit:

1. As the servers passed our table, they kept banging into one of our party.
2. Some "new wine system" prevented us from getting our bottle of wine for literally 30 minutes. Our party stopped eating their meals, hoping the wine would show up. The manager did apologize and pay for the bottle, which was much appreciated.

Food and service are outstanding. We went to Bareli’s on successive evenings with a team from work. On both nights the food was delicious. Try the pork chop Parmesan if offered - moist, tender pork butterflied, breaded and covered in sauce and cheese. Also noteworthy was the Black spaghetti and lobster diavolo. Oysters were fresh and tasty. Excellent cocktails and wine list. Service was friendly, prompt and helpful. If I lived in the area, would be a regular.

Would not consider this ‘fine dining.’ The bread basket was so sad looking. It looked like we got another tables left overs. Menu was mediocre. Ravioli was cold and the inside cheese tasted like a wet sponge. Service was decent, but wouldn’t return.

It was Valentine’s Day and they legit put us in a room in the basement where we even had to cut through the kitchen. They set up 4 tables down there. Wasn’t too bad but kind of lame when I had reservations a week prior . Then they come to the table asking if we want to buy a 10 dollar rose . What are we in a club in NY? It’s annoying when they do it in a club nevertheless a classy restaurant. But I’ll say this , THE FOOD WAS AMAZING. All that aside I’ll go back , not on Valentine’s Day that’s for sure but the food was that good .

Food and service was great. However there was a lady next to us who obnoxiously complained about the food the entire time. Me and my husband could barely hold a conversation because of her incessant talking. Her voice was a damper on our dinner. Very annoying.

We had to wait 20 minutes to be seated, but food was excellent. They added a twist to all Pasta menue , but if you want to traditional pasta dish, they will make it.
Seat food is all good. Steak was so so.
Only complaint is a music. They do not need live music there.

We were there for my sisters birthday. The restaurant was nice but the space is too small for the sparkler candles they brought out for numerous birthday celebrations . By the time it came for my sisters “celebration “ we asked them not to bring the candle . The room was filled with smoke that had a chemical smell to it. The food was average and a bit overpriced unfortunately.

Bareli's is one of my favorite restaurants. However, I was not pleased with my last experience. There were two of us and the table was a table for 2 which was placed next to another table for 2 without much room in between. The food we ordered couldn't even fit on the table. We had requested Surf and Turf and the size of the lobster tail was poor. It was no bigger than an extra large shrimp. My filet was chewy, although my husband's filet was very tender (the way it is supposed to be). It probably was an off night but when you are spending $300+ on a dinner for 2, you tend to think twice about going back.

We met at Bareli's because it was convenient to meet (georgraphically). Food was very good as was the service. The outside of the place is off putting but once you get inside it was very nice. The clientele is lots of locals which adds to the aura... It's a bit pricey but a nice place to dine.

Bareli’s is the ultimate dining experience. I never go anywhere else anymore. The food is always spot on. The cocktails are fabulous. The ambiance is very classy. However, if you choose to sit at the bar, you will have a more lively atmosphere and fantastic live music on the weekends. The owner stops by to say hello each time we have dined here. It’s a rare find !
