Greek
This is Greece.

Bar Vlaha tells the story of the Vlach people, the founders of hospitality and Greek cooking. A nomadic group of shepherds who created and nurtured the roots of Hellenic cooking as we know it. Straying from the tried-and-true island cuisine, we're rediscovering Greek fare sourced from rural mountains, lakes and villages of Central and Northern Greece.

Bar Vlaha captures the true soul of Greek cooking with rustic and nomadic traditions using charcoal and open fire gastra techniques. Locally sourced, regional and seasonal ingredients are combined with the warmth of old-world hospitality to bring the roots of Greek culture to Brookline.

    Our server, Maria, spent a lot of time helping us decipher the menu and plan our order. We over-ordered as everything looked delicious, so we're glad to have some leftovers to enjoy today. The trout was cooked perfectly and our vegetarian appetizers and eggplant, tomato main dish were all excellent. We could only get a reservation at the Chef's Counter, and that turned out to be a fantastic place to sit, both for the warmth of the kitchen and seeing the cooking action.

    Our 5th time since July and it’s always delicious! We usually get the lamb, but noticed the price went from $34 to $54, so we decided that was just too much for three lamb chops! Mushrooms as always were to die for
    Bar VlahaResponded 1 day ago
    Hello Joyce - thank you for joining us at Bar Vlaha again! The order of lamb comes with 4 lamb chops, and unfortunately our prices follow the market, and lamb skyrocketed recently so we had to adjust accordingly. We appreciate your understanding, and so glad you enjoyed everything again with us! Can't wait to see you back, and feel free to let us know if you need anything for your next reservation.

    Fantastic more land-based menu sibling restaurant to Krasi downtown. The roasted meat dishes were all fantastic and rustic. But, interestingly, the surprise winning dish of the night for our family was the lake trout! Cocktails were fun and creative and the service was spot-on! Highly recommend coming with a group of 4+ (we were a table of 6). Originally my wife and I were planning to come for a date-night. While we still would have loved the restaurant, getting to try over 12 different dishes was a delight. We really felt like we got a great representation of all the restaurant has to offer

    Overall good food but being greek already we rated the food a bit more harshly than other people. The grilled meats were good but the prices were outrageous. No sides unfortunately. The dips were also good but the tsatsiki was on the sweet side instead of the garlicky side.

    This is a wonderful location to get together with a group to share incredibly fresh food, relaxed ambiance (I can only speak for brunch), and a helpful staff (answering my questions honestly and offering options to fit our needs). When departing, every single person commented on what a delightful experience they had. If you’re looking for an intimate, quiet experience, that would not be brunch. But, not once did it interfere with our ability to have communication across the large table.

    Where can I start with Bar Vlaha. There is no doubt in my mind that the food is the best in the Boston Area - true Greek cuisine with an authentic menu that reflects the region. An atmosphere that hosts a tremendous environment for a guests experience. Service that leaves you wanting to come back more and more. There is not a single thing wrong with Bar Vlaha , and I have recommended it to all my friends so that they can have the same amazing experiences that I always have. Ask for Jorge to serve you… he’s the best. The only thing you may regret after going to Bar Vlaha is not ordering enough food. Enjoy.

    Great food, outstanding service. We started out 8 people, but two had to leave early. The waiter noticed and voluntarily put a hold on some dishes we had ordered as he realized that otherwise we would have too much food for 6 people. 3rd time there and service always great. Food is delicious, as are the cocktails. The praise for this restaurant is well-deserved,

    Incredible! It’s so great to try a cuisine that you don’t typically see in restaurants. This is a great place to jolt yourself out of a food rut. I recommend checking out the website and Googling some of the history of the Vlach people and the cuisine before going—this really made for a richer experience. Our bartender was knowledgeable and attentive and the host, Eric, could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The food was spectacular, as were the drinks. The wine list is extensive, and the cocktails are creative and fun. We loved the mushrooms and beef cheeks. Do yourself a favor and order enough to have some leftovers—especially the stellar, thick sourdough bread (horiatiko psomi)—for the next day. I’ve seen some reviews complaining that the bread isn’t free. C’mon, guys. Baking is a skill and exceptional sourdough requires expertise, labor, time, and money. It’s so worth it.

    One of the best restaurant experiences. Every dish was outstanding, beautifully presented, well paced, and just delicious. We kept ordering more throughout the meal. The interior was relaxed and the informality made it comfortable while enjoying fantastic food. Our waiter was very knowledgeable, helpful with our selections, accommodated a special diet by checking with the chefs, had great energy and genuinely friendly. My group is still chatting about how special Bar Vlaha was the next morning.

    The food and service were great. Only negative was that the noise level was a bit high.

    Luckily we were seated in a little side room, glassed in, away from the main room. Passing through the main room, full, lines of tables, close together, almost like one long table. Our little room had just three tables, banquette on one side, 2 chairs on the other. Perfect! The bartender came to our table to take our orders and explain the cocktails. They were delicious! We ordered bread and 3 ‘spreads’ to start. We looked over the menu many times. We were there for a friend’s birthday. She ordered roast lamb and could not have loved it more. We ordered salads to share. Some items on the menu are especially sized for sharing. All of the food we had was delicious! At the end of the meal we had one dessert to split. It arrived with a lit candle and a waiter singing ‘happy name day’ in Greek!!! Fantastic! I did not name all the food we ordered because I’m sure everything on the menu that strikes your fancy will be amazing! You will need a reservation…make one now!
