    Excellent! The staff was lovely, and the food was filled with such incredible depth of flavors. Everything was cooked perfectly, sauces were delightfully creamy, and paired so well together. We got the duck tacos, the butter chicken, the assortment of curries, the pomegranate raita (yuuum), garlic naan, saffron rice, chutneys and crips!

    It is important to see that everything here is extremely powerful, strong-flavored, and rich in texture, thus it is somehow hard for diner to order a la carte without getting bored towards the climax of the meal.

    Not traditional Indian food, but slightly modified to bring in more unusual flavors. Nearly all of the dishes we ate were excellent (you can skip the celeriac w/ sunchokes and the pork belly, but don't miss the lamb keema, green pea kulcha, cauliflower and lamb shank). It is a bit loud and the waiters were a little quick (and not loud enough) with their explanations of what they were bringing as they deposited each dish on the table, but they were accommodating when asked to repeat themselves. We could have used a few more check ins to fill our wine glasses. Despite those few complaints, overall, the service was good. Prices are around what you'd expect with the final bill coming to around $90 per person for our party of 4. We were all quite satiated and content with the variety of flavors in our meal when we left.

    As an Indian, my experience at Baar Baar was mixed. The atmosphere was vibrant but the tables were too close to each other, which detracted from the dining experience. While the food was decent, it lacked the authentic flavors I was hoping for and seemed overpriced for what was offered. Overall, I'd rate it a 3/5, as it provided a decent dining experience but fell short in delivering true Indian cuisine.

    This place is almost a first class restaurant, and we're rooting for it. - Decor - very nice, beautiful bar, mural, cocktail menu and ambiance. - Food - overall interesting/good, some dishes hit-or-miss, probably could more guidance on crowd favorites - Service - clearly needs someone who has run a first class restaurant before. 1) menus took forever to arrive. 2) water took forever to arrive. 3) drinks showed up after appetizers. 4) waiter was nice but had a "what can ya do" demeanor as if it's always like this. 5) no guidance that all dishes ordered were spicy despite having children at the table and no mention of spice levels on menu. For a $300+ dinner, everything needs to be tight if you want customers to return. Downtown deserves Baar Baar. Baar Baar just needs to tighten the experience and increase their level of service. -

    Food was great. I think they were understaffed that night and got slammed with conference attendees so the service was basically nonexistent. Kinda killed the vibe of my birthday dinner. But I’d go back and give them another shot because every bite of food was spectacular!

    We had tasted their food at Los Angeles magazine restaurant event and we liked it, so we decided to try the restaurant. Food and service were great, and we liked the ambiance as well. There was a restaurant at this location called Faith and Flower. They had done a good job of total remodeling of the place. We definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Notes on service that could use improvement. 1. Wait staff should introduce themselves first rather than the 1st question being “Do you know what you want to drink?” A greeting would’ve been nice. 2. No explanation on menu or inquiring if we’ve been at the restaurant before. 3. Servers should describe each dish while dropping off at table. Only the dessert course that was handled by the manager was described.

    I understand that this was suppose to be an "elevated" Indian food experience, however, the food just wasn't up to the "elevated" experience. I much prefer the traditional cuisine with much more depth and flavor than the dishes offered here.
