We were looking for a quick bite before an early 7 PM appointment. However, we found this amazing place instead. We loved the creativity, execution, presentation, and flavors of all the 8 dishes we had. We wanted to keep ordering, so we could try some more dishes, but decided that we will come back soon with an empty stomach.
The cocktail list is enticing. Eventually, I will try them all. No standard cocktails. If they sound standard, then they still have a twist to them. The staff and ambiance topped it all off.
I love it when you eat at a new place, not expecting something and then leave with your mind blown, anticipating your next time there.

Had such a lovely time with my girlfriends. They were just a couple of minutes behind on our reservation and the sweet hostess brought us complementary glasses of champagne while we waited under the heat lamp. The wine and cocktail list is varied and delicious as was the food! Can’t wait to go back. Thanks Bacardi GDL! 🥂❤️

Can’t wait to go back! Food is so tasty! The fried chicken sliders the perfect bite! Loved the creamy Mac and cheese with bacon! The burrata was my favorite and the margarita pizza was so so good!

Truly phenomenal service, from start to finish. We ended up being 10 minutes late but the host was very accommodating and still gave us a couple different seating options even though the restaurant was packed. I went with 3 girlfriends for my Bachelorette party and they gave us a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine. The food was so delicious and came out very quickly. We were also very surprised when the check came - we were expecting the total to have been way more considering how many items we ordered. I definitely recommended to anyone, especially any vegetarians, and I will absolutely be back the next time I am visiting the area.

This is a great place to come for small bites and good drinks. The staff is friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is very lively but the noise level can be quite high so may not be ideal for a date if you're looking for something quiet and intimate.

Good service, very good food, extremely fast food service. The space can be quite loud and table size is a bit small but the overall ambiance is good and the wait staff is attentive and very pleasant, very good attitudes. Would certainly continue to recommend the restaurant.

My primary problem was that the Dine L.A. reservation clearly stated $20.00 per person for lunch. When we arrived, we were informed that the Glendale location wasn't doing that deal. Instead, the charge was $58 per couple. That's $29 per person, or a 45% increase over what was stated on the Dine L.A page online. That also increases the tax and tip. So, while we liked the restaurant, it sort of smelled like a bait and switch, which we didn't experience at Cosa Buona last week.

DineLA menu... food was mediocre... Pear salad was just a few thin pair slices on a bed of 50/50 lettuce you buy from the grocery store AND the same salad they use under the fried cauliflower entree.. Scallops were smallest I’ve encountered, (3) to share..

The fact that we got out of there WITH an extra dessert (not in the DineLA menu) for less than $86 was a plus.

Oh, they gave us a glass of free bubbly...

The mussels and were too tart, the sliders were lackluster, and the dessert was the worst bread pudding ever. It was literally just a piece of bread with a scoop of ice cream on top. Not flavorful at all. Very over hyped resteraunt. On the plus side, the Service was great tho!

This is my favorite spot in Glendale. Great atmosphere, delicious food, mixologists (Omar & company) kill it with the drinks, and most notably the service and friendliness of the restaurant staff and manager, Eduardo.

I recommend the Sea Bass, stuffed mushrooms, scallops, friend chicken sliders, and honestly just about everything else on the menu. Get yourself a craft cocktail while you’re at it and your night is guaranteed to go well :)

Honestly this is one of my favorite new places to eat and I have to say that that's a high bar for someone who abhors malls, even those as nice as the Americana. This place has something for truly everyone (gluten free or vegan) in your life and it's garanteed to please. Random unexpected points for the odd very unexpected celeb citing from this otherwise low-key venue. Oh, and did I mention their otherworldly bar menu? Mezcal, yes please!

It’s a nice little restaurant with good food. Really liked they have vegan options. Service was good, very friendly and helpful. Just thought the wine was a little expensive, though they have a 90 minute open bar that sounds like a better deal than buying by the glass. Overall a good experience.

We were fortunate to find a table for 8 on Christmas Eve . Everyone on the staff was very attentive, everyone in our party (including 2 children) was well taken care of. Loved the variety and quality of the small plates, with a number of gluten free options.

Always a very nice experience at Bacari. We had a reservation for 7 people and I was not happy with a table right by the kitchen; they were very accommodating and cordial in finding us a different spot.

Incredible, just incredible food. We ordered so much, and LITERALLY every single item we tried was some of the best food we've ever had. The biggest con is that the price adds up really quickly, but if you have money to spend then this will be some of the best food you can get.
