    I took my fiancé out for her birthday, she wanted to eat at a place on the water. We’re locals and hadn’t tried LaBarca yet. We dine out frequently and hoped we had found a new spot to put into our rotation. It’s a little tricky finding the front door since the restaurant’s parking is across the marina parking lot and not really close to the door. There is no sign on the door that we could see but, we figured it out. We were greeted right away and led right to our table on the window overlooking the marina as we requested. The restaurant was clean and inviting however a little brightly lit for a romantic meal. The service was good but, could have been a little more attentive. We never received the second round of dinks we asked for. I initially wanted oysters and was looking forward to them after reading the raw bar menu on-line. We were informed that they didn’t get their seafood order and they didn’t have any. IAlso, any dishes on the menu that requires fresh seafood were also unavailable. My Fiancé asked for a shrimp cocktail and was told they are only for the bar and they didn’t have any. We pressed on and ordered the crab corn chowder. It was served Luke warm and although tasted good, it was nothing extraordinary and had almost no crab meat or corn in it. Also, the bread that was brought to the table was good, just not very fresh. For to the entrée, I had the veal Parmesan with the side of rigatoni in vodka sauce. The veal was ok, again nothing extraordinary and was similar to what I would expect from a decent pizza shop. The vodka sauce was ok, not great. My fiancé had the shrimp rigatoni in vodka sauce. It came with three shrimp, which seemed a little light and the same vodka sauce. All in all it wasn’t a bad meal but, not something I feel compelled to go back for. There are much better options in the area for Italian or seafood. Management doesn't seem to have any interest in improving.

    We celebrated my birthday in style, a table on the window and great food. I had the Bronzino which was delicious. Only wished they had placed less Arugula on top as I started with a salad. My partner had the lobster fettuccine with shrimp and crab. Our Cesar salad was perfect. They did not have the Pistachio Tartufo so I had the chocolate mousse cake. Tim was our server and he was point on.

    I was hoping this would be my new favorite restaurant. I like the location and views and the menu selections looked fantastic. However, the pancetta wrapped shrimp were badly overcooked and rubbery. The clams casino were non traditional. The clams were removed and chopped and added to a crab imperial then put in the shell. I like the clams left whole in my clams casino. The flavor was good, but not as good as traditional clams casino. I wanted clams casino not crab imperial baked in a clam shell. We had the Caesar salad which was good. We had a beet, spinach and goat cheese salad which was just ok. We ordered Lobster fettuccini Alfredo with sun-dried tomatoes. It arrived with shrimp and crab and 1-2 tiny pieces of lobster. Less than a teaspoon of lobster. It was a seafood fettuccini, not a lobster fettuccini. The short ribs were just mediocre. The desserts of a 7 layer chocolate cake and pumpkin creme breeze were good. If the dishes came to the table as described in the menu, and if high quality ingredients were used and cooked properly this place could be booked solid every night.

    Our Dinner was pretty much a disaster. These people ruined our evening with very uncaring service in every way. Stay away! We made our O.T. Reservation and the hostess suggested we sit in a back out of the way worst table maybe in the entire restaurant. Dumb as the restaurant never got more than 30% full. She said that is all that was available, no recon=gnition as to being an O.T VIP???? We complained and she moved us to a table of our choice. Nice. Then we had to beg for a server. The server finally greeted us and then soon after the straight faced no smiles ice cold manager came over and said that he had to give us a new server as our server was too busy helping at the bar. The replacement server was very nice. No issues. we went to order our food and they were out of so many things. They have several oysters on the menu but,were out of all of them except one. I asked for the corn chowder soup and they were out of that too. This place is a dump. The food was OK....not bad...but.....One of the worst we have been to and not worthy of being connected with Open Table. They ruined our evening of dining while visiting this area. Sad, and you should not dine there or you will probably have difficulty too.

    The service was good but the prices were high with no bread or salad included with the meal and drinks were expensive. The dining room was nice and we had a nice waiter . I just think for those kinds of prices they could at least give you some bread or a salad with your meal.

    Just a terrible experience. This was our second time there. We decided to give it a second chance as the first time was when they first opened and everything was pretty bad from the service to the drinks to the meal itself. Last night was just as bad if not worse. The waitress came over and immediately told us they were out of all the oysters And the mussels and several of the main dishes. Our guest ordered a bloody Mary and they were out of the bloody Mary mix. We settled for the Clams Casino which was mostly bread and very little clams. We each ordered the Chilian Seabass lobster dish which was OK, not great. Meanwhile, the noise level was awful, we could hardly communicate. After dinner our guest ordered an Irish coffee which came Luke warm with no whipped cream and my chocolate martini was terrible, could not drink it. It’s an expensive restaurant that needs new management!

    Our food was very good as was our waitress was lovely; however, our first choice of wine was not available nor was many things on the menu: no oysters for which the restaurant is known; no branzino along with several other choices. Food did not come out uniformly. Please note that the restaurant was not at all busy. Nevertheless, the 6 of us enjoyed the food as it arrived and enjoyed the time we spent together.

    We had a wonderful experience at LaBarca. I made a reservation. We sat at a high-top table by the window. the ambiance was inviting. Our waiter was attentive, friendly, and helpful. He checked on us several times throughout our dining experience. His name was Jorge and he shined a positive light on the restaurant staff. Our food was excellent. To start, We had muscles in red sauce with grilled bread for dipping. My husband ordered rigatoni in a blush sauce with seafood. I had pasta Fra Diavalo. Yum! We were celebrating my husband's bday. Dessert arrived with a candle and two waiters sang "Happy Birthday". Our wine was delicious! I can't wait to go back again. Maybe next time we will sit at the bar and have drinks with appetizers.

    The food has always been amazing!! The servers have been good too, but the kitchen is a mess!! Once again the main dishes did not come out together or even close together & unfortunately this is common there. Three of the main courses came out together then the other one trickled out. The last one came when pretty everyone else had finished their food. Timing is not their strong suit. The food itself was very good.

    The restaurant failed to inform us that they had a rather large, loud party booked in the main dining room. When we arrived the host acted like they weren’t sitting guests because of the party they had. When I informed him we had a reservation he then told us he only had bar seating. The restaurant could have called us and told us about the large party instead of acting like they couldn’t accommodate us even though we had a reservation. Food isn’t good. Mediocre at best. Erin, our server, was pleasant. Not worth going back which is too bad because the view is lovely, menu and service nice but food not worth it and lack of communication and courtesy by the restaurant uncalled for. Sorry, but once is enough….

    Food was great, sunset view was fabulous. Service was satisfactory considering the circumstances. Most of the restaurant was being used for a large private event. Had we known this when making reservation we would have chosen another spot, as it was our anniversary dinner.

    It's a very pretty restaurant in beautiful surroundings. We were disappointed that there was no outdoor seating. We both enjoyed our meals. We were disappointed that the gelato flight wasn't available for dessert although it was on the menu. The chocolate cake that we got instead was delicious. Our server was terrific. I was also disappointed that they didn't have the variety of gnocchi that their other restaurants have, especially the eggplant gnocchi. On the whole it was an enjoyable experience.
