Date was great as well as Lila our server, she was amazing and the evening very nice for our date. Unfortunately, mosquitoes were biting our legs left and right.

From the moment we sat to when we walked out every front of house member was polite and welcoming. The drinks were delicious and we were never without water- whenever one bottle was empty, another was brought without our having to ask. Our table of 4 women ordered 7 small plates and 3 desserts. Each one was devoured. Literally, every bite. And we were humored each time they offered to clear things out of the way so we could make sure we left not bite behind. Additionally we had 7 alcoholic drinks. Split evenly we were astonished at how affordable our girl’s night turned out to be! We all loved our experience and look forward to going back to try other dishes.

Great looking menu, but food didn't meet expectation. Has a college vibe due to proximity to USC. Not what was looking for.

Drinks were certainly watered down. If it’s going to be an open bar with watered down drinks they should make that known. It’s noticeable.

Cute place with a nice outdoor dining set up. Good food. Desserts were less delicious and on the sweet side. Affordable prices. Cheap well drinks with not the best alcohol, but you get what you pay for. Better alcohol versions exist though.

Would go again for a casual night with friends or a low cost 1st date experience.

If you just want somewhere to hang out with okay food its fine. The service is amazing! I loved our server. The problem was I felt like for brunch options the portions were very small for what they were charging. Also they put us outside and they didn't have any fans so there were often flies and it was hot. I wouldn't go back for brunch, but ill probably try dinner. The service again was amazing and I really appreciated that the bartender tried his best to create whatever drink you want!

We had a good time at the West Adams location. It’s still a good date night spot in comparison to the West Hollywood location. The food was really good, the only item we didn’t care for was the lamb kebab. We barely touched it and our waitress kindly comped us for it. Samantha, our waitress, was amazing and I highly recommend her.

Good times were had at this Bacari Adams. We all had a good time, the happy hour was a hit. Sure the 'portion' sizes were tapas style but generally, we had a good time with the food sharing within our large group of 12+ people.

We loved it, loved the outdoor dining, all places should do that.. we absolutely loved the ambience... it was awesome :)

Thank you for hosting us. :)

Bacari Adams is a must - the tapas style portions allows you to avoid being conflicted by one or two dishes; you’re able to enjoy 2-3 plates without over indulging, and the quality of the food is superb! I’ve tried just about everything on the menu, but I will highlight the chilaquiles (which are unlike any I’ve had anywhere else) and the French toast (which has a crispy, caramelizad taste that will blow your mind). Definitely check this place out for brunch!

Wonderful first experience at Bacari! The food was absolutely amazing and the service was fast and friendly. Our server Ben was very nice and able to answer all of my mom’s gf questions. The bacon wrapped dates were so good I will never forget them; the chicken sliders and the “bacarita” were also noteworthy. All of the menu items are inventive with some really interesting flavor combinations. The ambiance is pretty low-key. I will definitely eat here again and I would recommend this restaurant.

Food was delicious. Service was great.
Only issues was out table was on a slant but understandable because dining was outside due to pandemic. Overall everything was great!

We went for brunch and the mains and sides were delicious. The service was, at times, mixed. Our waiter came initially, made recommendations, took a drink order (which arrived promptly) and didn’t come back for quite a while. My side of bacon came like an appetizer and the mains came out staggered well after (I was almost finished when my friends’ main came). The “best cake you’ve ever had” is not the best, but the rest of the food up was quite good. When they tighten the timing, it’ll be fantastic.

Everyone was enjoying the outdoors and the brunch cocktails. They looked delicious, but I didn’t try them. I had the avocado toast and the chia pudding and it was good. The patio was definitely lively, but not overly quaint or inviting. Needless to say, I would definitely go back with a group of friends.

Great food and great service. It is a bit loud inside if you don’t mind the louder ambience. Bacon wrapped dates were burned but the beet salad and cocktails were delicious! I am definitely coming back to try more things.

Food and drinks were amazing. There was a very loud customer in the restaurant causing dinner to be awkward whenever yelling occurred. Service was great, but would’ve liked for someone to handle the customer.
