Never disappointed. Reservation was honored and the staff was very responsive. Food is top rate and kitchen is accommodating to special needs. It’s a little tricky to get to, but worth the drive.

Went to Bareli's for Christmas eve and enjoyed the festive atmosphere, well prepared dishes and attentive service. The music made it even nicer. Plan to return with friends in the not too distant future.
