    My hubby booked a reservation at 5pm, we arrived at 430pm and they seated us. This was perfect as the restaurant was just getting ready for dinner time. We ordered our drinks first and waited to order our food. The drinks were delicious! I ordered the Smoking Fruit and it was perfect! My hubby ordered the Caribbean Old Fashioned, needless to say he was also happy with his drink. Appetizers were great we had grilled Portuguese octopus. It was cooked to perfection and was a good portion! All I can say is scrumptious yummyness! Then my hubby had a beef soup which was the special of the day. He was happy either way it! Again I thought it was a tad bit salty. For our entrees i had the grilled Atlantic salmon. It was perfectly grilled to retain its moisture and flavor. It was perfectly paired with baby Brussel sprouts, radishes and earthy wild mushrooms. The black truffle vinaigrette added some savory notes, fully completing the dish! My hubby ordered the slow cooked short rib tagine. The meat was tender and succulent infused with delicious spices. He loved it! I thought it was just a tad salty. The homemade couscous was fluffy and just delicious, paired perfectly with the short rib. The atmosphere was wonderful!! Beautifully decorated and just great. It was nice especially because we came early! By the time we left, it was full. We will definitely return to try other dishes or maybe just have a drink at the bar.

    Went for restaurant week. It was good food, but not great. The acoustics in the place was absolutely crazy so you heard everything that someone 30 ft behind you was saying. I was expecting it to be a more romantic vibe, but it was giving party vibes. Do not go during prime dinner rush if you get overstimaulted

    If you want a sexy ambiance and somewhere that is ALWAYS packed, come to Barbounia. I've come here on a few occasions, and it's always been crowded. In any case, we were able to get a reservation for last night and we ordered the 5 dips (a must) and the mushroom flatbread. My only gripe is it’s a bit pricey for what you get but still fun.

    This is a Middle Eastern style restaurant that has a really nice atmosphere and decorations. The food, for lunch, offers a good selection of salads, middle eastern offerings, and appetizers. There is a nice bar as well. Overall, not too crowded so it was a good experience for lunch.

    Some of the photos that I have taken of this restaurant were taken after 2:30 in the afternoon, which is why you see so many empty seats. They offer a priced fixed menu and ala carte menu. I chose the two course, $45 price fixed one, it included an appetizer and main course. My appetizer was the combination appetizer of a small plate of hummus and a salad of diced cucumber and tomato, I enjoyed it. My main course was salmon that came with mixed vegetables that were tasty, especially the crimini mushrooms. Unfortunately, the salmon was flavorless. I had requested it to be cooked medium-rare, which it was, so I am puzzled about why it was flavorless.
