Good Wine bar - so so restaurant – I took my one and only trip to Bari on a night when it was not so busy and the atmosphere was calm. I was on a date and am a vegetarian so I asked if some of the menu items could be altered a bit to acommodate (ex. leave out ham). After the waiter went to put in our order, he came back and I was told that they were not able to change any of the menu items because the chef "thought it would ruin the integrity of his dish"..... I asked for one item to be left off of a salad. Needless to say it was a bad experience. Not to mention that the portions are sized like tapas but priced like gourmet entrees. Not worth it - there are plenty of other restaurants to choose from. Sidenote - if you just go to the bar for wine and cheese expect a great time and good wine.
Great food...Great service! – I had a wonderful dinner here on 9/12/09. Our server was very knowledgeable. Good selection of wine and cheese. There were 4 in our party and we all loved every course. Hope to go back soon!
Great food, Great Service, Very Reliable – I have dined here on several occasions and have left happy every time. Our waiter (Hunter) knows the menu and always has great suggestions. The wine list is extensive as well as the cheese selection. I am not an expert on either but with advice from Hunter I have never been disapointed. It can be a bit pricy but is worth it in my opinion. My favorite dish is the ahi tuna as well as the speghetti carbonara. We will return again and again.
not so great – was at this restaurant on 4/5/08 about 8:30 PM. Cheese course: Not enought different types of cheeses, portions were "weak" . Waiter tried to upsell everything. Salad was different, but not spectacular. Main courses ok, but not great. Nice wine selection. Expensive for what it is.......about average at best. I would not go back.
Best Italian – The atmosphere is very nice and the service is excellent (you don't find service like this in Memphis very often). They have a great selection of wines and cheeses. The plates are small and simple, but delicious!! Very authentic italian food.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Cuisine from southern Italy includes pasta entrees, grilled and baked fish, an extensive cheese menu and homemade desserts.
Delicious & Authentic! – Our dinner at Bari was simply delightful. The plates are smaller so you can order more courses. The eggplant fritters and cheese platter are a great way to start. Our entrees were fish and steak, which were both well made. Be sure to ask for a table in the center of the room, as the other tables may be drafty on a cold night. Service was very attentive.
