The hostess was nice and seated us promptly. The waiter acted as if he could care less about us being there. Like we were a nuisance by being there.
The food was OK but not special. I have veal Marsala and other diner had the pork chop.
This restaurant charges uptown Manhattan prices and delivers lower Jersey service and food.
Probably not going back.

Restaurant was crowded with a delightful assortment of customers. Cocktails were refreshing and chef accommodated our special dinner request. Service was 5 stars and we were seated in a lovely cozy, corner table. Recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for high~quality food, service and atmosphere.

Bareli's is the best restaurant in the surrounding area--as good as anything in NY. It's comfortable with top drawer food and service and comfortable seating. The only caveat is that on Friday & Saturday nights they have entertainment which is extremely loud. The one time we went, even sitting in the back, it was so loud it was hard to talk. If you like a party atmosphere, then go Friday or Saturday night. If not, as we do not, go during the week. But either way it's a great place, although be prepared to pay prices of an upscale restaurant. Highly recommend.

Love everything about this restaurant. The ambiance is great, the food is excellent and the service is the best. We were just a little disappointed that the pasta was not al dente as requested. They did offer us a fruit platter after our dinner.

Awful dinner. My Veal Chop was served raw, sent back to the kitchen and returned raw. By that time my guests had finished their entrees. Dessert was offered no charge. Coffee arrived after we finished the dessert. Bill was incorrect and sent back to be corrected to what they promised. All in all an awful experience.

Authentic fine Italian dining. Incredible food selection with a wide array of daily specials. Don’t see it on the menu? They’ll find a way to make it for you. Unbelievably friendly and prompt service.

There’s a cool little bar in the entryway with a duet expertly singing an eclectic selection of classics. Not too loud; just right for the venue.

I will most definitely be back. Great food, great service, great vibe. Awesome!!!

My wife, daughter and I dined at this place for the first time on Mother's Day. We were anxious to try it since it has received rave reviews. The food and service was good, but I felt we were rushed through the meal. This is not what I expected considering the hype and the prices they charge. The other downside was the dining room was rather crowded with misbehaved children and parents who didn't care. In any event, I would probably give it another chance when it is less crowded. Bareli's menu is loaded with interesting dishes I would love to try.

I love this restaurant. I have dined there about six times over the past few years when I visit the area on business. I always take clients and they enjoy it as well. It's NJ, but feels a bit like old New York. At any time, I expect the ghost of Frank Sinatra to walk in. Contemporary, with a touch of nostaglia.

It’s been a number of years since I last enjoyed Bareli’s wonderful food and atmosphere. I had friends up here from the Caribbean and promised them a great Italian meal. Bareli’s did not disappoint. Great food and great service. I personally need to go back more frequently..
