Food was on point. Drinks were top notch. Waitress was on top of it. Best ambience in Cedar Rapids. Best fine dining option in Cedar Rapids for sure.
Although I enjoyed the food and cocktails and our server was exceptional, the fact that I had to wear a mask to get up from my table was ridiculous.
Great service and great food. Quantities could have been larger but great food.
Very good food and great customer service!!
We used to love Bari, but the food was not up to par last time and honestly the service was very much lacking.
We are very sorry to hear this. We are always trying to excel at all facets of the restaurant and sometimes that comes from lessons learned from a poor review. We look forward to hearing back from you on what adjustments you believe we could make in hopes this type of review doesn't happen again. Regardless, thank you for supporting a locally owned restaurant. Grazie.
Amazing food and staff. The place was very nice and staff all wore masks. One of the best meals I have had. We will be back.
Awww thank you Cortney. We are always happy to hear when a guest enjoys their eveing. Grazie.
Our server (Bonnie) was very attentive. We were provided samples of wine to make our best selection for dinner. We would definitely go back.
Bonnie is pretty awesome isnt she. We are happy to hear you had a great experience. We can't wait to see you back in Bari again soon. Grazie.
Nice atmosphere, maintains nicely socially distanced seating & masking, good variety on food and wine menus.
Thank you James for your nice review, we appreciate you taking the time. Glad to hear your visit was enjoyable. Hope to see you soon. Grazie.
This place was amazing! Great food and drink, the fire pit made our anniversary extra special. If you get a chance, ask for Savanah to be your server, she is the best in town!
Thank you Adam for your nice review and thank you for choosing Bari for your anniversary dinner. We are happy to hear your night went well. We can't wait to see you again. Grazie.
Calamari is amazing and the Gnocchi is to die for!
Awwww thanks Camron. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your selections. Hope to see you soon. Grazie.
Found Bari online when looking for late dinner during the week. Food was great, excellent service. Prices reasonable and half price bottles of wine on Thursday night. We have already recommended it to others and will definitely return when we are back in the area
Well thank you so much for giving us a try. We are happy to hear you enjoyed everything and are honored that you recommended us. Can't wait to see you again. Grazie.
Great food and ambiance, big city feel in a small town.
Thank you Ana for your very nice review. We love to hear when a guest enjoys their visit. Hope to see you again soon. Grazie.
Really enjoyed the beet dish for an appetizer - so unique and delicious with a goat cheese and pistachio combo.
Ordered the salmon dinner, carbonara dinner and a triple chocolate brownie for dessert. The dessert was topped with a chocolate cup filled with vanilla gelato and buttery cream sauce on the side.
Food was cooked perfectly. Great cocktail options.
I kind of felt like we were in a different city. Will visit again for sure.
Thank you for the great review of your experience at Bari. We appreciate you taking the time as well as for your patronage of our locally owned restaurant. Grazie.
Excellent venue, service, atmosphere. Very hip, classy restaurant. Nice vibe, great food, and windows line the front for a beautiful view of the lighted trees at night, etc. Would definitely recommend
Thank you Michael for your kind words. I will share your compliments with our bartender James. We hope to see you again soon. Grazie.
Excellent customer service. Very large menu selection.
Thank you Allen for the great review. We appreciate you and your patronage of our locally owned restaurant. Grazie.
Great food. Slow service at first but they made up for it. Drinks were amazing!!
Thank you for choosing Bari as your destination for dinner. I'm sorry for the slow start but are happy to hear that everything finished out well and that you enjoyed your dinner and drinks. Grazie.
Our food was amazing. Smaller portions. The drinks were also amazing. Service was great
Great appetizers and portions of their entrees. Atmosphere is elegant, but cozy.
Thank you Emily for your nice review and comments. We appreciate you. Grazie.
Loved the drinks and service. It was a great date night experience.
Thank you Todd. We are glad your date night went well, thank you for allowing us to be a small part of it. Grazie.
The food and atmosphere were amazing. Not to mention the service. One of my top places to visit in CR.
Everything we had to eat and drink was phenomenal, service was outstanding. Will definitely be back. This was our second visit in 7 days. Highly recommend
Awwww thank you so much; happy to see you back so soon. Thank you so much for your support. Grazie.
We went to Bari for the first time during Restaurant Week. The food was delicious but the service was even better! Great atmosphere as well.
Thank you for your kind review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your experience. Grazie.
The food was excellent and the staff really adhered to Covid safe dining protocols
Thank you for taking the time to enter your review. We appreciate you. We would however love to hear from you on how we could have made this a 5 star review with service. Grazie.
The place is nice, We requested a hi top but got a lower table. Food was ok. Wedge salad was mostly bitter yellow lettuce and lacked flavor balance. Crab cakes were really good. The red sauce tasted like Prego or chef boyrdee. They were out of many items when we where there. No steaks. Pricey for what we ate.
Thank you for your feedback. I do apologize that we were were unable accommodate your request of a high top but we only have two in our restaurant and they were being used for a larger group on Thursday and with social distancing we only have a couple places we can effectively place a group of 8. As a manager I truly want to know when something isn't as expected or up to par for a guest while they are in the restaurant so I may do my best to rectify the situation immediately. If you shared this information with your server and they didn't pass it on I am truly sorry as that isn't how we do business here. They are instructed to bring a manager in on ANY issues that may arise so action can be taken. I can tell you that we receive fresh produce in our kitchen multiple times per week so freshness should never be an issue. I do understand though that we all have different palates for flavor and I can tell you that our Wedge salad is one of our best selling items, but I do apologize if you did not care for it. We are a fresh kitchen and prep today for today not for 4 days from now which means all of our sauces are made in house daily for each order. Last week we were running specials for Lent and is why we didnt have our Steak Special available but we have taken feedback from you and other guests and will not be doing that again. We will have our steak special available weekly as advertised on our menu. Speaking for most restaurant managers I know, we do truly want to make guests happy which means listening to constructive feedback while your in the restaurant so next time please ask to speak to one of us. Again I apologize your experience wasn't what you hoped or what we strive for but please know we are learning from each review to make changes so as not to repeat a negative situation. Grazie.
Terrible experience and we will not be going back. We made reservations a week in advance for Steak Special night. We looked through the menu and were excited to try the things we picked out. We were seat and ordered an Apple Ginger Collins and an Apple Butter Old Fashioned. They were not able to make either drink due to being out of ingredients. We were then informed there was no steak night that they were serving fish instead. We were disappointed since that was the reason we went on a Wednesday. So I decided to get the Bone in beef short ribs. They were out of that also. At that point I just wanted to leave but it was my wife's Bday and she wanted pasta so we stayed. I got the pork chop well done, It was medium rare. My wife ordered the chicken and mushroom pasta. She said it was so bland it was terrible and barely ate any of that.
I am very sorry for your underwhelming experience, this is definitely not what we like to hear and are not used to hearing it but have taken your feedback to heart and have made some changes so this will not happen in the future. We decided to have Tuna available on Wed and Thur for Lent instead of the Steak Special but have since realized that was not a good decision and do apologize for this. We won't be making that mistake in the future. As for the outages on some things those were unfortunately all related to weather as trucks either didn't run or or delivered after we opened which didn't allow time for us to prep those items such as the short ribs or meatballs. I apologize for this and understand that it doesn't help you but I felt you should know the truth. We have made some changes to our ordering procedures to help eliminate this issue from happening in the future. It does surprise me to hear that the Spinach Fettuccine had no flavor as it is our most popular pasta and a signature item. As the manager I truly want to hear when things are not as expected or not up to par for a guests when they are in the restaurant so I may do my best to rectify the situation immediately. I very much do apologize for the experience you and your wife had.
lobster was fantastic and the staff was friendly. Seated immediately for our reservation.
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your lobster and service. We hope to see you again soon. Grazie.
Lovely venue. Drinks and specialty drinks were well done. Dinner and appetizers were well prepared and served piping hot. Price was very reasonable. Good ambience. Slightly noisy but not uncomfortable. Staff was well trained and attentive.
YAY! We love to hear reviews like this one. Thank you so much for taking the time to enter it as well as visiting Bari. We can't wait to have you back. Grazie.
First time was New Years Eve and said I'd be back. Went again Friday night the 13th and have another great meal and service I'll be back at least once a month. Love having Bonnie as our waitress. Had her both times and she is great. Thank you! Looking forward to trying more things so that means I'll have to stop getting the steak and lobster. See ya soon and keep up the great job.
Amazing! Thank you for making it a point to visit us on the regular. We very much appreciate your patronage. We completely agree with you that Bonnie is pretty darn awesome and that you should try other items on the menu, but, The Filet and Lobster is pretty amazing. Grazie.
It was an excellent evening! They continue to do a great job with wearing masks and distancing guests! It was nice and quiet and such a nice atmosphere. The service was excellent. The food was very good! Tiramisu was wonderful! The only thing we keep wishing they would have is some good bread. They have a fried bread as an appetizer which is ok but we would love some good crusty Italian bread on the menu or at least a different option from the fried bread. Dipping some bread in my pasta sauce or in some olive oil would have been great! We really enjoy this restaurant and will keep going back!
Thank you for that amazing review. We are happy to hear you always enjoy yourself at Bari. I have always said I want us to have a Yes kitchen which means saying yes until we can't. We do have Ciabatta bread in house for our charcuterie boards and the kitchen would be happy to send out 3 - 4 pieces of that when requested. So please just talk to your server next time and they would be more than happy to make that order happen. We look forward to seeing you again. Grazie.
Our favorite place to eat in Cedar Rapids! Delicious food and excellent service every time. Highly recommend.
Thank you! We love to hear this in a review. Thank you for visiting us again. Grazie.
We celebrated Valentine’s here and our food and service were outstanding. Looking forward to booking here for future date nights.
Thank you so much for choosing Bari for your Valentines celebration. We are happy to hear all went well and that you'll be back for date nights in the future. Grazie.
The most amazing food & Bonnie is an AWESOME server. Will definitely be returning
She is pretty awesome isn't she?! Thank you for coming in for dinner, we can't wait to see you again. Grazie.
Our first visit-Awesome food, great service and cozy atmosphere! We’ll be back!
Fabulous Food! Fabulous Service! Fabulous atmoshere! Fabulous cocktails!
Thank you for visiting Bari and for the FABULOUS review. We appreciate you. Grazie.
I was very excited to eat here but was certainly disappointed. Nice atmosphere and our server was very attentive (although she was not very familiar with the menu when we had questions). Food was definitely overpriced, limited menu, and nothing to write home about. I will not return.
This is definitely not what we want to hear and a review like this is a rarity for us. I apologize that you feel this way and would personally like to chat with you more about your visit so we may diagnosed what went wrong and where we dropped the ball on your visit. I have sent you a private message so we may gather some information to hopefully fix what went wrong. I apologize and please know we do not take reviews like this lightly. Grazie.
Dinner with 2 other couples this week was a pleasant experience. The food was superb...service was excellent......wine and cocktails were perfect.......and the evening was most enjoyable. The staff remember our name and take time to honor our requests.....Bari's is our now our favorite place for dinner and entertaining.
Thank you for coming in again; its always a pleasure to see you. We are glad everything went well and we will see you when you get back. Grazie.
Great ambiance, quiet, good food and wine, and great customer service!
Thank you for choosing Bari for your dinner. We really appreciate your patronage and the kind words. Hope to see you again soon. Grazie.
Asked some co-workers for advice on good Italian places in the area to take my lady for a nice dinner expecting to pay around $100 total. Bari was one of two places recommended and I can see why. I went online and made a reservation for 2 at a high top table. We found a parking space on the street right outside the restaurant with no issues. We were greeted and seated right away by welcoming staff and immediately given menu's and a special wine list. Our waitress did a great job of getting our orders correct with the exception of the bar tender screwing up one of our martini's. The atmosphere was very pleasant. Upscale but not too ritzy ditzy where you felt like you had to wear a suite or anything. The appetizers came out before our meals as expected and our server made sure to check on us periodically for drink refills and to make sure our food was good. She was very personable but not invasive. The food itself was wonderful. Taste was amazing, portion size generous unlike a lot of higher end places, and prices were a bit high but that was expected for what I was looking for this particular evening. My baked seafood was something like $25-26. Her salmon & pasta a little less. We had a great first dinner out in Cedar Rapids and I would highly recommend Bari. The bill came in at $111 with us both having 2 top shelf martini's, a cheese & charcuterie appetizer, and dinner entrées. Feeling happy with the experience I tipped $30 (In cash. Very important note for anyone tipping your servers so they don't have to get taxed on it!). Ended up spending a little more than I planned to but like I said, I left happy having a great evening and experience. One note is that they aren't accepting loose cash to pay your main bill at this time due to COVID. So pay your tab with a card and tip with cash. While mentioning COVID, facemasks are required when you walk in and when you leave your table. Don't need them at your table but do to like go to the restroom. HOPE THIS HELPS!!! :)
Thank you for your very kind and thorough review. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your first Bari experience. We look forward to see you again. Have a great day. Grazie.
Excellent food and amazing service. One of my favorite CR restaurants!
That you for the great review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your visit. We appreciate you and your patronage of Bari. Grazie.

Awww thank you so much for your kind words. We are always happy to hear when a guest enjoys their time here at Bari. We can't wait to see you again. Grazie.
