    I spent $400 on food alone just between me and my boyfriend bc he was having a bad week and I wanted to treat him. The first ten mins, we weren’t even greeted nor were we given water or anything to drink. I had to finally get up after ten mins had passed and ask the bartender for service. If you want the slowest service in LA, this is the place to be. The server was nice enough. She sure got nicer when she realized while we were not ordering drinks, we were ordering $400 worth of food. In the end, everything slow and all, even the valet validation held us back bc the host didn’t have stickers to validate. I left her a 20% tip bc nowadays it’s the “right thing to do” but the whole team failed and they deserved maybe $20. Btw; the runner that was bringing the food started to explain the side sauces and stopped after the first sauce. He just… stopped talking like he fell asleep and just ran off. It was weird. Not my first time here but certainly my last.

    I made a reservation to celebrate my birthday with my girlfriends. Even though I put on the reservation that it was for a special occasion, it was never mentioned.  When we went to Sinners and Santos afterwards, we saw how the staff celebrated someone's birthday there 😑 The food.... we asked our waitress about spiciness of the food and let her know we don't want anything spicy. None of us like spicy food. Only 3 dishes out of 6 that we ordered weren't spicy. When a server brought some dish, we heard how our waitress said to her that it wasn't for us. When we asked her what dish it was, she pointed on the menu at one we didn't order and then she said it's gonna be on the house since we already tried it. Well, I was charged for that dish as well at the end. Parking... on the website it said that Level 8 validates parking. No other details were there. When we asked to validate our parking,  we were told they don't validate Circa parking 🙄 like we were supposed to know in advance which parking structure is covered for validation? The whole experience wasn't what I was expecting 😕  we won't be coming back.
    Que Barbaro at Level 8Responded on 14 April 2024
    I'm truly sorry to hear that your birthday celebration didn't go as planned. Birthdays are special occasions, and it's disappointing when they're not acknowledged. It sounds like there were several miscommunications with the food orders, which must have been frustrating, especially if you specifically mentioned your preferences. And the parking situation adding to the inconvenience is just not what you expect when planning a fun night out. We understand your disappointment, and we apologize for the confusion and inconvenience you experienced. We value your feedback and will take steps to improve our service and communication for a better experience in the future.

    With no expectations, this place met what we hoped for. Food are great. The food we ordered are amazing and full of flavor. The ambience is calming and relaxing like being in the tropical island. Our server though can improve by being enthusiastic and slow down on speaking. He seemed to be in a hurry.

    Horrrible experience. We had made reservation 2 weeks in advance, but when we got there still had to wait for 45 minutes. The hostess didn’t know how to provide explanation and just said it’s Saturday night. So we wait 45 min there just killing time then we get seated. We order drink and appetizer and the busters brings our debunks and spills it all k came. My dress, shoes, bag everything was soaking in cocktail. Glasses all shattered on floor. She then just leaves for 10 min while I’m trying to dry myself we don’t know what she’s doing. We then ask our waitress if she will change our table since the floor table chair everything is wet. We then get moved to another table and I’m still wet and sticky we put in order for dinner and it wasn’t all impressive. Just a normal food but very hyped up. Very pricy and the ambiance is not what they show on IG. Total waist of a Saturday night. Not a good service at all. I will not recommend anyone to go there. They don’t know how to provide service or do service recovery.
    Que Barbaro at Level 8Responded on 14 April 2024
    I'm truly sorry to hear about the disappointing experience. I apologize for the inconvenience and frustration caused by the hostess's response and the subsequent mishap with the spilled drinks. It's completely understandable that you would expect prompt and attentive service, especially after such an unfortunate incident. I'm sorry for the delay in addressing the situation and for the inconvenience of having to move to another table. Your comfort and satisfaction are of the utmost importance to us, and I regret that we failed to meet your expectations in this regard. Once again, I apologize for the negative experience. If there's anything further we can do to address your concerns or if you would like to discuss your experience in more detail, please don't hesitate to reach out.

    Ordered the burrata, humita, broccoli, wagyu NY strip and had two cocktails. The humita was great, burrata was good and the “wagyu” was awful and not a true wagyu. There was absolutely no marbling, flavor, marinade or seasoning. Just a slight smokiness and the cut was tough like brisket. Absolutely not worth the $89. The decor and materials used are beautiful, but the entire building, with the exception of the host, is staffed by inexperienced people and the crowd was trashy. We were excited to experience all Level 8 has to offer but certainly won’t be returning.

    The steak was missing flavor. The drinks are mid. The place is decent but for the price it’s really lacking flavor. The menu is not impressive. Me and my partner agreed this place is not it. For Latin cuisine I say La Cha Cha Cha is a way better option.

    drinks are dumb expensive. service was weak unfortunately. very slow to bring drinks, half the items we ordered were not placed. food was ok. broccoli tasted like propane, steak quality wasn't anything special and had some gristle. sweet potato was actually amazing. not even close to what you should get for that price.

    First visit to Level 8. Que Barbaro was a perfect choice for my wife's 70th birthday. Swordfish was undercooked, so our waitress not only brought a more thoroughly-cooked swordfish, but also sweetly surprised us with a courtesy branzino entre. Overall, really a lovely time.

    Our food was just ok - there was nothing interesting about our meal and our group did not appreciate that alterations were either not recommended or completely unavailable due to pre-prepared/pre-mixed ingredients. Multiple times the staff sent our order to the wrong table, and they were unhelpful with dietary restrictions due to lack of understanding of the menu and flavor profiles of the items. For meals well over $100 per plate, I expect outstanding service and exceptional food, rather than mediocre pre-prepared items that would have been at home on a local Chilli's menu. Overall our experience was exceptionally mediocre and we will not be returning until the staff fixes their service problems and the food is enhanced to the level they are charging. I had high hopes for this new offering and am really disappointed to see such a great idea have such poor execution.

    The ambience and the food was great. The hostess was very sweet and friendly and made our arrival very welcoming. Our original waitress was super fun and hospitable she was covering our table while our waitress was on break. The food was a yummy experience. Small plates so make sure not to expect a full meal. We had the tomahawk and shared it. The presentation and sides were deelish. You pay for the experience. It wasn’t the best meal I’ve had & It is not a cheap outing.

    This was our first visit to Que Barbaro. From beginning to end everything was perfect. The host was friendly and her smile was so welcoming. When we got seated to our table Korra took care of us. The drinks were delicious. I love Mezcal so their chili mango cocktail was well balanced in ingredients that made me want more and more. For an appetizer we had the Proveleta. Was soooooo goood my guest and I really enjoyed it and definitely reminded us of pizza. For my entree I had the Tira De Asado. Note that main dishes don’t come with sides. Non the less it was filling and the small side of sweet potato, tomato and onion were amazingly delicious. This dish had a hint of spice at the end but nothing over bearing. The manager on duty was active on the floor and I also had the pleasure of meeting her and getting info in regards to a future reservation I want to make for my 30th birthday. Overall 10/10/10/10/10!

    After part of our meal was served, our server disappeared (meaning even the other service staff could not find her after we alerted them) for 25 minutes before the restaurant's "Operations Manager" took note and took action. No other service staff stepped-in to cover her absence nor our lack of service. The server did not even apologize nor take note when we asked if she was alright upon her eventual return. It was like eating TWO separate meals. Not good, although the Operations Manager took note and accommodated a small part of the bill. High price for TERRIBLE service even if the food was good.

    Thought the decor was beautiful. The menu is very concentrated. The food we picked out was good. Only tiff is the cost. Some dishes are well over priced. 2 cocktails, 2 principales and one appetizer and one side was $180 including the automatic gratuity.

    Good service. Empanadas were delicious. Overpriced for amount and quality of food.

    I had a reservation at 6:30 I was running late I called them 11 times and the voice mail will keep repeating same thing over and over again, I tried to texted them thru the reservation app they never replied me back, Finally I made it 6:33 pm I asked the hostess all this situation and she was like let me see me messages and she was like oh I’m sorry I see you texted us, I’m sorry for not texted you back, anyway food was really not good, place was great but food was not that great I had empanadas (decent) provoleta (good) brancino(good) Picanha (the worst) I had a bite and it was all rubbery I had to sent it back they offered me some langostinos and they were kind of bland pineapple sauce way to spicy for people is sensitive to heat, I had a mock tail oh boy that glass had only 2 oz maximum of liquid and all ice, Over all dinner was a disaster, only thing I like was the decoration and service from bus boys were on top of it, I will never go back! My bill was $176 for two people, not worth it!!!

    The cook by fire element in the middle of the restaurant could have been a really neat feature, like I thought it would be. Instead it looked like a typical kitchen stuck in the middle of the bar. It was kind of disappointing. The food was a bit overpriced with the Waygu way over cooked ( was not even asked how I wanted it cooked). The corn dish was odd, the melted Provolone dish could be easily made at home and the shrimp was uninspiring and very little for the price. I had mentioned that it was our Anniversary in the special instructions as part of the RSVP. No mention of this was made of this during our visit. Restaurant was decent looking Parking was $40.00 Would not likely be back Would not likely be back

    Quick and easy with reservations host was very nice and acknowledge the reason we were there (anniversary). Waitress was nice, but had a range of tables and saw us about 3 times total. We saw the gentleman cleaning tables more than we saw her Sitting- your literally sitting on top of one another, we were sat in the corner table Sounds- place was not noisy but could hear all the conversions going around us, break ups and first dates! Food- empanadas- 2/10 Papas- 10/10 delicious!!!!!!! Drinks- Rosè- delicious!
