    All 4 steaks were undercooked and served on top of mashed potatoes. Therefore we could not request recook on any steaks.

    BarriqueResponded on May 26, 2022Hello, As an owner, I apologize your steaks were undercooked. However, if this would have been brought to our attention, your steaks would have been cooked to your liking or replaced.

    First let’s start with how accommodating the staff was. The absolute best in terms of seeing to everyone’s needs especially my niece who only eats chicken fingers and French fries. Did I mention wings are not on the menu but yet the chef magically made some appear out of nowhere. I travel a great deal all over the country for business and this place did not disappoint. This is truly a small town GEM! My next visit from Orlando to visit family this place is the only place for dinner I’m going. Oh I forgot to mention. The food is “Slamming” “Da Bomb” Great people awesome atmosphere only beef is that the service was a bit slow. But I’m a native New Yorker and we complain about everything anyway so don’t let that deter you!!

    Had reservations and it took over 90 minutes before we received appetizer. It took another 45 minutes before our entrees arrived and then it was just warm. The space is very inviting, the food taste was okay, but the service was not good. Maybe, they were short staffed. I will try again. The restaurant has great potential.

    Food was not bad but not for the price. Service was a little slow considering how few people where there in my opinion. I counted 18 people and saw three servers, one bar tender, one hostess, and the owner. Took them 20 minutes to get our drink order.

    The worst dining experience I have ever had! Made reservations for a nice Valentines dinner and an hour and a half in had only been served cold lobster bisque that had to be sent back to then watch several other diners who came in much later than us be served meals while we waited. staff extremely unresponsive so we keft at an hour and 45 min in as they brought our dinner after we had exited our table. this was a set menu and we placed our order early on. I inquired at least three times as to the delay with absolutely no results or communication back. we drove 45 min both ways and they made no effort to make it a nice experience. very sad…

    Valentine’s Day dinner. The food was good and our service was excellent. We had an excellent server/bartender named Walker. We were shocked at how much our dinner cost. This is Goldsboro, NC not Raleigh or a major city, and I feel the prices are way too high for people to pay in this town. I wish that the owners would reassess their restaurant and make the prices lower so that more people can enjoy. I don’t know they can sustain this restaurant. I do like Barrique and would come more often but I will not because of the inflated prices.

    It was New Year Eve dinner with my mom and dad. We arrived early and went up to the bar for a drink and we stayed right there for our dinner the bartender was so sweet and treated us so good we decided to stay there with to eat. It was a set menu for New Years and the food was simply amazing it was a 3 course meal and from start to finish was excellent. Mom and Dad got the pasta it was full of lobster and shrimp it was full of flavor I got the filet it was the best I’ve ever eaten. We will definitely go back to check out there regular menu. Thanks for making our New Years delicious

    Took an hour and a half to get food. Pasta carbonara was not as described and was in no way carbonara- had no bacon no peas. Gnocchi bolognese was burned. Chocolate dessert was melted basked for dessert and check to go because we had somewhere to be. And we’re told they couldn’t pack dessert. It took twenty more minutes to get check

    This was our first visit and upon arrival, there was no one to greet us, seat us, etc. We didn’t know if we were supposed to seat ourselves and if so, were we supposed to be upstairs or downstairs. After making two trips up and down stairs, we finally flagged someone down to ask. Food was great, but after waiting for over 2 hours for our meal, anything would have been good. Even the salad was an hour and a half wait. Sat through not one, but 2 Tom Petty concerts on their projection screen. Thank goodness we are fans, or else this would have been even more miserable. Staff were useless except for the one waiter we had. He seemed to be doing everything for everyone else. He may have even cooked the food! Don’t waste your time or money here unless you would like to have many, many cocktails prior to your meal.

    Had the most terrible experience the other night. We had reservations for a party of nine at 6:30P and didn’t leave until 10:00P. The service was terrible, so bad, we will never be going back there again. The service has been terrible for months, the restaurant should close its doors.

    I made reservations because I had some special people that I was entertaining. First they only had Sweet Tea. Not Unsweetened. Hello you make tea then add sugar. Then only soda they had was Diet Pepsi. One guest ordered plain burger......they didn't even include a side. We had to ask for it. For the price it was a disappointing evening

    Over a year ago my wife and I had a bit of a bad experience for our dinner meal but it appears that those experiences are gone. We dined at Barrique the day prior to Valentines day and it did not disappoint. We were seated prior to our scheduled reservation and greeted by a welcoming host and a energetic waitress. There were at least 6 other couples seated downstairs and it was as if we were the only ones there. The kitchen was visible from our table and there was a flurry of organized efforts happening with the meal preparation. They had prepared a choice of meals for that evening the included paired wines/spirits and desserts. the food was prepared wonderfully and tasted great. For a Valentines meal the restaurant was very efficient at providing a wonderful meal. Thank you to Barrique for a great experience. If you have not been there, it is a must visit.

    Most everything was fine except these: 1) We sometimes waited for 10 to 15 minutes for refreshes, new drinks or our ordering process. 2) Seems that the bar area was low on several drinks and we tested out a few. The couple that we really liked, (at least over the other choices), were not replenished. If you're gonna offer a beverage, make sure you have more than one so the clients can order more. Having to order different drinks, many of which at least I, was not familiar with, took away from the whole experience.

    I don't know how they prepare the shrimp in shrimp Carbonara, but it was the best I've ever had. Same goes for the Brussel Sprouts Pan-seared in Thai chili & Bacon - exceptional. Loved the Caesar Salad too. Just a hint of anchovies - perfect. The other members of our party enjoyed their pork chops and Gnocchi Bolognese. Our server was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Hope you get to meet the gracious owner, Eli Wuest. We enjoyed an extremely pleasant evening, and will certainly be back.

    I wanted to love this place as I’ve waited a while to actually eat here. It is a beautiful location. When I arrived there was only one other diner in the restaurant as it had just opened for dinner. We ordered a pasta dish and a burger. After over 40 minutes no food had arrived and our waiter kept stopping by to say food would be out shortly. We actually stopped him to say if not soon then we would have to take it go as we had tickets to an event. Finally my daughters Pasta arrived but still no burger. She had completely finished eaten and plate cleared before my food came. I ordered my burger medium well and it was at best medium rare. I ate around the edges. The fries were cold and mushy as if they had barely hit a fryer. The waiter had a manager come talk to us and initially said I cannot comp your food. She said there were problems with the kitchen equipment which I wish I had been told so I could have made a different choice. We were given a $20 dollar gift card and a 10% off coupon for our dinner nightmare. The drinks we had were really good but the food I cannot rate nearly as highly. We had a really bad experience and we are not restaurant complainers. I would have totally been willing to give them another chance if the manager had at least said let us take care of the food and we would have paid for the drinks.
