We have been going to Barrington's for years, and it remains at the top of our list of go-to restaurants when we are looking for something special in terms of a dining experience. My husband and I went there recently to celebrate our anniversary and the food, ambiance and service was excellent. Even on Monday night, the restaurant was full, so reservations are a must. We could not decide on what to order for starters, so our waitress recommended a few half servings so that we could sample a little of everything we had been eyeing. Mussels were very good - a little garlicky for my husband's taste, but he is sensitive to garlic. The gnocchi with veal ragu is always delicious, and we enjoyed the smaller portion as the dish is quite fillilng. I ordered the pork chop entree (served over polenta), which was highly recommended, and it was delicious. It was pounded and lightly breaded, so not to thick and very tender and moist. Flavor combination on this dish was really nice. As others have advised, do save room for dessert. We split the peanut butter mousse/chocolate cake dessert, and it was very good - not too heavy after a very filling two courses. We have traditionally ordered the chocolate pudding cake with ice cream that has been described here - and it too is delicious (if not a little heavier). We experienced great service - attentive (but not too attentive) - and we were not rushed at all despite a full restaurant.
