Originally the noise level was totally unacceptable due to one table that was extremely loud out of control and inconsiderate. We moved to a different table in a different room and the rest of the evening was perfect. Maybe management should have spoken to them. Food and service was outstanding. Will definitely go again.

had a good time. owner accommodated us on where in the room we wanted to sit. came over a couple of time to ask how everything was, we also went because Steve Maglio was singing there. He was terrific. Started singing at 6:30 and didnt end until 11. Looking forward to going back in the summer and sit on the porch.

Three of the four of us ordered shrimp and they were all over cooked. Very disappointing since I have been there before and it has always been done correctly. At their prices they should certainly get it right. Also time between appetizers and entrees was about an hour, much too long for our liking. Our reservation was 7:30, we didn’t get our entrees until 9pm. Not a good experience at all and we felt sorry for our server who was on point.

Overall very good experience. Service was outstanding. The only reason not a 5 across the board was the after dinner coffee was warm not hot, and tasted a bit burned/old.

The service was great. The food was ok. This restaurant is a Victorian house, too many rooms, It felt like I was dinning with the people next to our table. The live music was a plus.

Wonderful food & service, but the live entertainment did make it a little hard to carry a conversation. He was great, but the volume was a little too high. I would definitely go back again.

We had a wonderful meal at Bareli's By the Sea. The food was delicious. I ordered the swordfish special and it was served on a bed of homemade cavatelli. A delicious treat that I hadn't enjoyed in sometime. The fig crostini as an appetizer was wonderful and packed with flavor. We also enjoyed the baked clams. It's no longer a BYOB, so liquor added to the tab. I found the wine list to be on the high side, but all in all, a wonderful experience and will definitely go back. I recommend you give this a try before the summer season starts, because I imagine it will be hard to get in during the season.

It was near perfect experience. The food and service was exceptional. The view was so pretty. The martinis were delicious. The gelato was heavenly. We sat in the front room and it did get chilly on and off. But staff was very quick to adjust the heating. It’s my new favorite place 👍🏼

The lighting needs to be better. There was one little candle on the table with no lighting from the ceiling to shine on our table. The singer was very good, but very loud for the space. It made it difficult to hear the conversation at our table of 6.

The calamari was good but could have been cooked a little longer. Dinners were given high marks all around.

The house cabernet for 11.00 was not good at all. There are tons of options out there for house wines. Went with the 16.00 (yes that's per glass) and it was wonderful.
