These folks seem to be in transition. Service was indifferent. Most menu items were not available, just siushi. We ordered and eventually could see our food on the counter but had trouble interesting the waitress to bring it to us. Need to get their act together.

We arrived there were multiple open tables inside and out and were still told it was a 20 minute wait. Tables did not get cleaned for long periods of time. When finally seated we ordered a sandwich and salad - no cooking involved waited over 45 minutes. Asked waitress she said she told her manager - unlikely. Asked her again... More

We decided to try Baca for this Friday Food Night. We had been to the bar before but now we wanted to sample the food. When you walk in, you're first aware of the bar. The base is lit with a nice-shade-of blue and it was fairly full when we arrived. It looked like an after work crowd who were... More

Not sure how they are staying in business since this chic, cavernous restaurant/bar was empty. We came for sushi happy hour which was a good value. The drinks are fair. There are too many bars in the area that are offering happy hour martinis using premium liguor. Baca could do better. The atmosphere is fabulous but the bar scene was... More

Suuuuuper trendy spot to enjoy some late night drinks. If your lucky enough to get a table you will get great service. If your stuck standing you will have trouble getting rounds at the bar. Good thing about this place is that it makes sense in a t shirt or a suit.

Visited sunday night about 5:30pm. Not busy, and idle barkeeps standing around. Ordered lettuce wraps and korean bbq wings. What arrived was spicy chicken nuggets and wraps were three tiny chicken pieces with iceberg lettuce. WRONG! Bartender swore they were korean wings. We flagged manager who confirmed they were spicy chicken nuggets. But he did nothing to resolve it. Cold... More
