Description: It's hard to describe the Barndiva experience. And a web site is no substitution for being able to sit back and enjoy the beauty of an extraordinary space, the taste of a perfect cocktail, or the satisfaction that comes from a meal that hits all the right notes in you. Barndiva is a celebration of all things local. Our food is sourced from farmers, ranchers and small batch purveyors who live and work in the magnificent food shed surrounding us. Food is our passion. In everything we do, it all starts there. Thanks for visiting.

“Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!”
Reviewed March 16, 2009

From the moment I walked in with my party, the experience at Barndiva was a complete pleasure. The owner and servers greeted us warmly. The food was truly exceptional: extremely fresh, inventive, wholesome, and delicious. The servers were attentive, subtle, and efficient. They were also quite friendly and gave excellent information about the menu. Most importantly, the owner was absolutely terrific, recommending certain menu items, explaining the history of the restaurant and town, and making us feel completely welcome. Eating at Barndiva was a truly memorable experience.

“Interesting, but . . .”
Reviewed December 27, 2008

Good food, quite a nice variety. Great service and, of course, a super selection of wine. For such a nice place, one would expect that things like enormous spider webs in the window would be taken care of ..... inside.

“A good find”
Reviewed July 26, 2008

We had an early reservation and did not have any of the service problems described by other reviewers. There are very few tables, so I can see that people may end up waiting, even if they have reservations. Our waiter was young, but friendly and attentive. The menu - food and wine - is limited, but inventive. Our appetizers, entrees and wine were all from local suppliers, so everything (except the wine) was fresh and delicious. Would definitely recommend it to a friend.

“Skip It”
Reviewed July 12, 2008

Our wonderful day was brought down by the horrendous service at this wanna-be restaurant. Management is definately an issue and our arrogant waiter was consoled by an insufferable superior even though he failed to deliver a drink (two were sent back as undrinkable-DO NOT get their drink specials), one out of six dinners (we waited an hour and then an extra 20 minutes for the one he forgot to order) and failed to give us silverware, napkins and plates before the appetizers arrived. The food was passable but not nearly good enough to put up with this embarrassing restaurant.
