Watch out for Count Dracula...you'll know him when you see him. We made a 8:30pm reservation because Barcode was playing a fight we wanted to see. We planned to eat a bunch of dishes, have a couple drinks and watch the fight. We specifically told the waiter we were there for the fight. I ordered the spinach salad and mac... More

Went to a friends birthday party. Had the worst time, ended up leaving early. Not a good place to eat, drink, or chill.

Booked a table due to the heavy advertising for the UFC on the website and facebook pages. We were seated beside the bar and told to look at the TV beside us ... fairly awkward. I asked if we could change the channel and was told by the owner that because I'd not booked for the UFC specifically, that we... More

Just enjoyed dinner at Barcode - what a great surprise! Last minute recommendation from the hotel concierge - atmosphere was energetic and fun - great energy - and the food was fantastic. Couches out front on the sidewalk with heat lamps for chilly nights - inside was fun and upbeat. I had the Tuna Civiche which was outstanding, followed by... More

A group of 8 made reservation and had dinner here around 830pm. Service was pretty consistent and the food prices were good. All of our food was good, no one had any complaints. At 10 they started putting up all the tables because the restaurant turns into a club/lounge. We already had other plans but we did return the next... More

The theme of the night was "Chewy"... We ordered the grilled calamari which we found very tough. We then moved onto a bowl of clam chowder and found those to be chewy as well. Not sure if we just hit this place on a bad night or that is just the way they do these products but we did not... More

Awesome food. The wait staff and bartenders are fabulous. A short distance away from metro station and there are 2 parking lots close by if you decide to drive. Clienteles are mostly young professionals. Atmosphere is very preppy. Again, the food is awesome. I will definitely come back.

I've been to Barcode a few times. It has a great atmosphere. The food is good and if you stay into the night on the weekends it turns into a nice lounge with a good crowd.
