We had a reservation for 7 and got seated right away. They were out of the marinated Kalbi and brought out a different cut without telling us. We ended up getting the in marinated kalbi. It was brought out frozen. I’m not sure if they had anything to do with it being so tough when we cooked it. The Bulgogi was great and the kimchi pancakes were the best. Don’t forget to wear clothes you can put in the washer and dryer right away because even with the fans on, you will smell like bbq. But it’s worth it for Korean bbq.

Great food with lots of choices - with excellent wine pairings too. You can go for the well known dishes or go outside your comfort level with some adventurous (and delicious) meals. The food is great to share family style or order your own of your favorite; you won't go wrong either way.
Sunday night visit was uneventful. I was a bit underwhelmed with the sushi this time around. They do not make hand roll versions of the full rolls anymore; only the individual pieces of fish can be ordered in hand roll format along with nigiri or sashimi variations. The vibe here is fairly quiet and conducive for conversation, and the lighting was reasonably dim to match the auditory vibe.
We love Baron’s! My husband always changes our pre-planned reservations elsewhere so we can eat at Baron’s. We dine here at least twice a month. The food is excellent, portions are good and the flavors are fantastic. The service is great too! I was a bit disappointed yesterday when we dined here though. We love the Wagyu Beef entree and it has always been perfectly cooked and tender. For some reason, yesterday’s Wagyu Beef was tough and unchewable. It had some gristle - things we’ve never experienced before. Regardless, I still give Baron’s a 5 star rating because one off experience vs. many shouldn’t determine the grade of this great restaurant. My only ask is they check the quality of their meat before serving.
