This was a great experience! I would definitely recommend this place!
It was good
Wish they looked at our notes in the reservation. We asked for an igloo and there were two open when we got there but they wouldn't seat us there. Food and service were good though
Everything we had was amazing. Guac, empanadas, hanger steak and three types of tacos (chicken tinga, Korean short rib and brisket). Highly recommend!
Everything was outstanding. Our servers suggestions were spot on. Drinks were refreshing and food was creative and delicious.
Our elderly parents loved it. They wanted to eat in the igloo. Korean tacos were our favorite.
Lots of fun!
It was great! Accidentally came during brunch but was still able to order off the main menu. Food and drinks were wonderful as usual
Well, let's just say that you could find better food at your nearest taco stand. It was mediocre at best, and definitely caters to the more established Lincoln Park crowd.
Also, I made a reservation and the hosts could care less. They rolled their eyes and didn't bother to recognize us. It took us 30 minutes to be seated, and I'm still unsure why we didn't leave.
That's a big thumbs down for me 👎🏾
They sat us 45 minutes late and didn’t even think to bring us any free drinks or food to compensate for lost time. Other than that, was a good experience
Great place to go with friends and decorated super cute for the holidays!
Angelica is amazing! This is the first time I have been to this restaurant and my sister and I sat at the bar, had a few different drinks, tried multiple items and we were so well taken care of by Angelica. She is the BEST and made several recommendations as she knew we hadn't been there. The Tuna Poke Tacos are AMAZING!!
celebrated asking my sister to be my MOH and the staff made it so special.
Service was very slow and it took an hour for some members of my party to get their orders. The restaurant also had very loud music playing which made it very hard to hear. I would discourage folks from going there.
Food was great! We had reservations and it took 15 minutes past our reservation to get seated, and it took awhile to get our drinks. Other than that, the guacamole and tacos were delicious! I would go again!
Quickly becoming my go to Hotspot.
The server kinda forgot about us after we ordered drinks and never came back to get food order!
Always a favorite in Lakeview! I teach right next to the restaurant at CorePower and this place is so great for either a quick Sangria Roja or a long dinner. Definitely take advantage of their large patio! Even in cooler temps, the heat lamps are perfect to enjoy tacos and their Truffle Guacamole. Every server has been a total gem! Recommend this restaurant to anyone--but don't forget to make a reservation if you're going in on a weekend evening. Otherwise, posting up at their huge wrap-around bar is a great alternative to snack and drink!
I made a reservation for my extended family of 9 adults for a late brunch on a Saturday. Everyone was in town for a wedding and we wanted an easy place for lunch and drinks before we had to go back and get ready. We show up on time and you could hear the music and bass pumping out of the restaurant more than a block away. I asked the hostess to be seated outside because we didn’t want to shout at each other during the meal. We get seated outside and 20 minutes later and two trips back to the hostess stand, no one has come outside to take our order, drinks or food. Two other tables around us got drinks and food and one was moved inside because it had started to sprinkle.
After threatening to leave, they sent someone out who was actually really great. The manager offered one free guacamole for the table of 9 and that’s about it. One of our food orders came out 10 minutes after everyone else’s and we had to go back inside to get our credit cards ran for our checks because it had taken so long and we had to get back to the loop for the wedding.
I get that it was a day-drinking college-ish brunch and we were clearly in the wrong spot. However, there’s no excuse for the continued awful service. If you’re understaffed, say so and rectify it. The food was outstanding and our server Melissa was great, but we will not be back, ever.
Everything was good, but the waitress was VERY agressive.
Great place and outdoor space
Octopus dish was excellent!
I like the atmosphere at Barcocina, but the food is expensive and lacks flavor. I ordered the Carne Asada tacos and they were very average. I tried my friends bang bang shrimp tacos and I was surprised how sweet they were since bang bang shrimp is usually spicy. The service was very slow, we waited 30 minutes after we were done eating for anyone to come check on us. Overall the experience wasn’t great and the food is overpriced.
Great spot to gather with friends and family especially if you order a bunch of tacos and share amongst everyone. The sangria pitcher is a worth the purchase as it is strong and can serve up to 5. The food is pretty good for the price too
Good food. Good environment.
The food is good but the level of noise/music was too much for my taste. I don't like to scream at the other guests to be heard. My friends didn't seem as bothered as me by the music. If the weather is good, I would insist to sit outside or would go someplace else.
Great service and beautiful patio!
I love the atmosphere of this place. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a group setting—it is the perfect fit.
Great patio with fire pits, great for a date night. Food was excellent and good service!
Experience was good besides the service is always iffy here. I’ve been here plenty of times and the service is always bad on tuesdays.
The music was a little too loud for the afternoon. Hard to hear, but overall love the place.
Good spot for tacos and cocktails in a fun setting. Outdoor dining has a fun vibe too.
Tacos were good but not outstanding. Churro waffle was incredible! Very noisy outside with train. Waiter was great!
If you join for the bottomless brunch, you have 2 hours to make the most of the money you'll pay. The music was quite loud (we were sitting in the back, next to the tacos bar) and it was at times hard to maintain a conversation
Always GREAT food at barcocina. We went on a Saturday night and it was super crowded with the outdoor patio open so the service started off slow getting our drinks. But the waitress was very apologetic and took first round off our bill. If you’re sitting inside it can get rather loud but the side patio is awesome!
Great vibe, fun outdoor patio. Great margaritas, prices a little high for the portion size but not outrageous. I would definitely go back again!
Really enjoyed everything we had. Menu is very good. Our server was fabulous! My husband also asked for a special kind of margarita that had to be made from scratch and the end result? EXCELLENT! We will be returning and will put this on our list of regular restaurants for Saturday nights!
It was girls night out and we loved the food, margaritas, and space! The guacamole was awesome! We had some shared plates and two types of tacos that we added a 4th to so everyone could try. Our love was the shrimp tacos! We will go back.
Good food and prices but music is unnecessarily loud and annoying
