My husband went there for my late birthday celebration. This place is a little pricey, but you get awesome service and tasty food! The decor was nice to look at as well. Totally worth the money!

Overpriced mediocre food prepared by high production staff. If you like Cheesecake Factory atmosphere and food, you will enjoy Barbacoa Grill. If you have a deserving palette, don't waste your time and money.More

On entering the restaurant the decor is intriguing, but the service and the food is an experience as well and does not disappoint. Everything was great from the table side guacamole, the Latin Steak and the Tortilla Crusted Chile Relleno. Truly a fine dining experience.

The metal artwork and ambiance of Barbacoa is worth the visit alone. Presentation of food is excellent.

We really like this restaurant but they overcharge for what/where it is and the food they serve. They are trying to be a 5 star restaurant but aren't quite there.
