We had an awesome experience at The Barn from start to finish. Arrived around 5:30 for some pre-dinner cocktails (Fernando and It’s Warm Somewhere)… both delicious and made with serious care by the bartender. Followed by a bottle of Aligote which was perfect.
For appetizers, we had to try a few things…
- The Blooming Onion was great… perfectly fried and sweet… combined with spinach and artichoke deliciousness on top
- Bone Marrow Luge… every bite was awesome… Asian flair with tartar on top of the marrow, and ends with a shot meant to get every bit of deliciousness off the marrow. Fun experience and something you don’t see on menus much
- PEI Mussels… normally we’d never order mussels since we cook them often ourselves but this was like a bahn mi in a bowl... still thinking about how delicious this was
By the time we got to dinner, we were pretty full so split the fried chicken. Cooked well and juicy, but the sauce could have had a bit more flavor… I’d try something else next time.
Dessert we wanted to end on a high note so split the Yuzu Pavlova and didn’t regret it. Awesome mix of flavors and not too heavy.
Professional and attentive service with proper pouring of drinks, changing of flatwear throughout with everything matching what we were eating. Some things that I feel are a bit hard to find outside of the city and didn’t go unoticed.
The setting was beautiful on the patio, especially on a warm summer night. A fair mix of couples, groups, and families with very well behaved children.
While not a cheap meal by suburban standards, we felt that everything was well priced and worth the cost. Based on our meal last night, would highly recommend…Can’t wait to go back again soon and try different dishes!
This Michelin starred restaurant is worth all the hype. Ideal for a special occasion dinner or a leisurely eating experience. Service was courteous and efficient. The atmosphere was quaint, cozy and romantic. The cocktails were soooo delicious. Food was amazing. The Bone Marrow Luge… I could have eaten 10 of those! And the Steak Frites was cooked to perfection. Would skip the Mushroom Pasta next time. But that average dish was easily forgotten when I bit into the Peach and Plum Pavlova. LOVED IT!!
