User review by bfsandoval – Visited Bacaro recently for a business related dinner and was very pleased with our meals and with the over-all ambiance of the restaurant. We were seated in the main dinning area, which can get a bit loud, but not distracting. Service can be a bit slow at times, but is always friendly and helpful. The food is outstanding, and the wine list is superior to most restaurants at this price point. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and we will always include Bacaro, as a choice, for both business and personal dinner plans.
Horrible service – This is not romantic or quiet like I read from reviews. My fiance and I had to shout at each other to talk. First, they wrote our reservations down on the wrong day and time. Then, I asked for a quiet table. They sit us next to three tables with 6 or more people drinking heavily and yelling and screaming at each other. We saw our waitress once to take our order. The food showed up an hour later. The bus boys helped us the most.
If you are looking for a good place for a group of friends to drink a lot and eat good italian food and dont mind begging for a waiter/waitress to take your order or get more drinks, then go here. Just make reservations. They told a group of 4 on 5:00 of a Friday night that the wait was over an hour.
Agressively rude service – Not what you'd expect from an upscale restaurant we were served another table's appetizers and blamed for "accepting them," and yet we didn't touch or eat them... We spoke to the manager to order our own appetizers, as we felt the waitress wasn't very sympathetic. He kindly served us, but then we didn't see him again. The waitress returned and confronted us for speaking to the manager and again blamed us for taking the next table's appetizers. I am sorry, but since when did it become the customer's fault for messing up an order? We were just out to have a fun happy hour before xmas and the wait staff did their best to see that we had a medicore $200 happy hour. Shame on her.
User review by pamula – As an avid user of Citysearch, I travel often, and dine out frequently. I have not found another restaurant that matches up to Bacaro's ambience, authentic Italian cuisine, or it's lively crowd. I frequently come for the happy hour, because the tapas and drinks are extremely inexpensive, and it lasts till 7pm daily! Bacaro has great live bands during dinner, and late night scene on the weekends. It has alot to offer, which is why I love coming here.
Wonderful people – Bacaro has become a new restaurant , they change the look , from the modern of the bar to the table
and new light.It look very cool and the new two Chefs make this place in our opinion one of the best in Boulder .Try they new cicchetti menu ( old Tapas menu ) is great and fair price.
Good job Bacaro
Med-alternative – If The Mediterranean has a 45-min wait for a table, come here. That's what my girlfriend and I did last Saturday, and we were quite pleasantly surprised. The bread was quite good, and although olive oil is supplied at each table, pepper is not, a minor gripe. The appetizer (brie/walnuts/honey with crostini) was delicious and well-balanced. And the entrees were delightfully bright and very clean tasting. The atmosphere is a bit cold and loud, but attractive. Service is a bit aloof/arrogant but still professional. We had a problem getting clean water glasses at first (lipstick and smudges and whatnot), much to our waiter's embarrassment and dismay. Prices aren't exactly economical, but ultimately you *do* get what you pay for, which is more than many restaurants of this ilk can proclaim.
Very impressive! – Whether you're looking for a low-key lunch, a romantic dinner, or a few cocktails on the patio, Bacaro will not disappoint you. The food is excellent, the restaurant is spacious and trendy, the waitstaff are knowledgeable, and the wine list is VERY extensive. The total experience is definitely worth the money!
