Barcocina - Baltimore Ratings and Reviews
The highly touted Barcocina Guacamole di ...
The highly touted Barcocina Guacamole did not taste very fresh, and was clearly worked too hard by a food processor. You should be able to recognize that an avocado has recently been cut open in a nearby kitchen when you eat guac - this had been machined into a homogeneous green paste with no character of the avocado left to be enjoyed.
In addition, we had the Ancho Fried Chicken, which was nicely cooked (i.e. not over cooked), but was blandly seasoned, and had the annoying problem of the breading separating from the chicken where ever touched by fork or knife. The 'rice grits and legume salsa' was by far the highlight of the meal - delicious!!! Twenty bucks for mediocre chicken with delicious rice doesn't seem to be worth repeating though.
Finally, the restaurant was out of the one beer I selected, so I passed - yet that beer still showed up on the bill. To our waitress's credit, she caught this mistake between presenting the check and picking up my credit card.

A great place to share soft tacos and beer. Our group was easily accommodated by the window view to the harbor and in an area away from the noise of the bar. We still had a view of sports on TV and could hear each other. Great value for waterfront dining and an easy walk to Insomnia for cookie dessert after. Obviously a fun spot for singles, but families can co-exist because the front greeters care. Wait staff and bartenders insure you have a good time and help you to navigate the best food and drinks.

Went with a few friends for a Sunday brunch, and overall had a good experience. We ate inside due to a sweltering heat wave, but the view was still fantastic and the inside is very modern. The mimosas were a bit on the weak side. The menu had a lot of great choices, and it was explained to us that most of the brunch meals were meant less for sharing than a typical Barcocina entre. Most of my friends enjoyed their food, in particular the chips and salsa trio was amazing. I got the benedict, and while it was maybe a bit bland for my taste it was still enjoyable overall. Service was good and I would definitely go again, but the food was just a little less than I was expecting.

Came as a group of 9 for a special 10 year wedding anniversary celebration. Excellent food as always!! Service could have been better. Bottomless mimosas turned into only 3 because our waitress was no where to be found majority of the time. I come here often and this could make me rethink that. Very disappointed in that. Also we had a few in the party that were waiting for her to come back to the table so they could pay because their parking was about to run out and that was a scare.

Lots of space especially for Fells Point. Good for groups. A little loud unless you're dining outside which is great on a summer night. You get the breeze from the harbor. Food is good. Fresh with clean flavors. I had some picky eaters with me and everyone was able to find something that looked enticing.

Barcocina was great. Good was awesome - an eclectic Mexican flair with unique options and full of flavor. Our waitress was top notch. Cocktails very refreshing and delicious. The only thing that would have been better is the price. Drinks were outrageous! If it were less expensive I would be a regular.

We enjoyed our waterside view and the refreshing breeze off the Inner Harbor. Food was served in generous portions. We enjoyed the quinoa mango salad, crab guacamole dip and pork tacos. All were most worthy presentations. Our single complaint is that our drink order...a pitcher of a jalapeno gin concoctions was delivered AFTER two of our orders were served and was poorly blended. This was realized only as the final serving contained highly concentrated jalapeno syrup. Spicy!!!

The best thing about Barcocina is the view. It's beautiful. It was really really loud though. Our server was sweet. But the food was lacking. We went for brunch. The best part of our meal were the cocktails and corn salsa and fresh chips, which were great.
Other than that, everything was either not good or meh. I got the pork belly brunch dish and it was just soggy chips with a couple very small chunks of indiscernible meat. I had eaten so much of the corn salsa and chips that I was pretty full so I didn't send it back. My husband got a salad with strawberries. I didn't try it but he said it tasted like the lettuce had turned bad and was really soggy and way over-dressed. He ate less than a third of it. My sister got the huevos rancheros and she said it was good but not great.
I would go back again to sit outside with the great view, and where it's quieter, but only order drinks and chips/dips.

One of my new favorite places. The windows and light make you feel like you are outside everywhere in the building. Food was good. But a bit cold and lacking in spice and flavor. My drinks where good. I enjoyed myself here.

Barcocina has an AWESOME brunch. All of their omelets were delicious and the brunch quesadilla was excellent. Prices were reasonable. The option of including a salad or fruit to the entrée was very good. Will definitely go back and try a different entrée.

The food was great, we will go back. The waiter was very unfriendly and non helpful. I took it as RUDE! Maybe it was an off night, or that's how they treat their customers, but he never asked how things were, or recomended anything, or asked about drinks or dessert. I witnessed another waiter, and he seemed friendly and personable, how I like wait staff to be. Hoping for better service next time.
P.S. Nice man bun

A delicious brunch -- huevos rancheros and ancho cinnamon french toast -- to celebrate my brother's birthday. I especially liked the tangy lime cream on my huevos. The weather was gorgeous and the garage-style windows were all up bringing the outside in. And , of course, the harbor view was sensational. A winner!

It was a summer day and wanted a refreshing beer. My choice was a summer shandy which they didn't have on tap. Megan (I believe her name was) decided to take it upon herself to try and duplicate a summer shandy. She made two samplers which were on point and definitely hit the spot. The food was delicious, my date was hot as balls, and the service was quick and friendly. I will definitely be going back.

I enjoy good Mexican food and sampling good Tequila. You can do that here. Food was very good and the waitress did a good job of explaining their small plates style of sharing. I highly recommend their guac. with balsamic and basil.
Service was somewhat spotty. Several requests for some ice to go along with a martini were ignored. One order was lost altogether but was promptly retrieved when the mistake was acknowledge. Part of the problem wit communication was the noise level. Our petite waitress with a soft voice to match could hardly be heard over the din. We asked her to repeat many of the offerings.
I would go back but not on a Saturday night.
DELICIOSOS Contemporary Mexican AMAZINGLY TASTY!!!
Barcocina has an amazing wrap-around patio, and the entire place opens up giving it a great water-side vibe. The food was absolutely amazing. We enjoyed several different shared dishes - enchiladas, tacos, quesadillas and the B-sprouts. The portions were much larger than anticipated. Make sure to save room for dessert. The chocolate ice cream taco was amazing, and the strawberry shortcake (which was actually a fresh, hot glazed doughnut) was unbelievable! Can't wait to go back for more.

Barcocina was a nice restaurant spot for a casual double date dinner. The view was spectacular and the weather was perfect for sitting outside. The atmosphere was young and vibrant with a lot of 20-30-somethings watching a soccer game on television, drinking, and laughing. The staff was attentive. The food was good, but not spectacular. I had three tacos which were small and tasty, but not out-of-this-world amazing. This restaurant is more up-scale with portions and prices matching the atmosphere, but the food could be better.

Good food and great atmosphere. Went for lunch on a Sunday. It was busy but we were seated right away. The highlight of the meal was the corn salsa--I'm definitely going to try to replicate this at home, it was so yummy. Would definitely go back again.

What a great spot! Right on the water in Fells Point! We were visiting from NY and picked this place on a whim...it was absolutely fantastic. Food was amazing, the staff had great recommendations and we had a lot of fun! Couldn't ask for more.
I took a date here over Memorial Day weekend, a Saturday around 1pm. They were very accommodating concerning reservations. I had scheduled one online, but had to call about pushing it back and the hostess was very polite and accommodating. It was a little busy and our waitress gave us plenty of time to talk and catch up, and we nearly forgot that we had to order. We picked two items from the brunch menu, and when they first got to the table,pretty quickly at that, it seemed a bit small for two people to share. Pretty surprisingly though, it was very filling. The atmosphere was very pleasant as friends, families, and dates alike were sharing food and drinks and a breeze rolled in from the harbor with the windows and doors open, providing incredible views. My date and I surely had a great time at Barcocina.
The view was better than the food.
The menu is latin themed but mostly a variety of tacos with some unique and some not so unique fillings. My colleagues each had tacos and they shared. In fitting with the theme of the night the tacos looked better than they tasted. Flavors were very meh. Ingredients seemed fresh enough but delivery was sorely lacking. They looked fresh and pretty but flavor wise were really rather mediocre. The Guac was good as was the pan fried brussel sprouts. Staff was happy to push these especially as it added to the overall bill at the end of the night 10 bucks for chip and guac...???
It's hard to beat the open seating atmosphere alongside Baltimore's Inner Harbor, especially on a nice late summer afternoon. But the view was much better than the food and that's not a good thing for hungry diners. Our server seemed overwhelmed despite less than a half full house. She really didn't have a good handle on the meal or the interaction with us from beginning to end. Her top was embarrassingly tight. I liked it but it wasn't appropriate for the venue and made for some interesting dinner discussion among myself and my colleagues. Overall I'd give two out of five stars as a dining experience but drinks for the evening and some apps might be a better fit.

We took our daughter and some of her college friends here for dinner. It was mid-week and the place was still quite lively. We were seated by the terrace doors as it was a bit chilly to sit all the way outside, and it was a lovely location. My daughter asked for the table to have the three salsas with chips and they were all very good - we had fun voting on which one was the best. Our part of 6 all ordered tacos for dinner. Each one was fresh, nicely seasoned and delicious. There were no leftovers. The service was efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. It was a terrific evening -- highly recommend.
Barcocina Good Food But Loud!
This mexican restaurant on the Baltimore harbor in Fells Point has a great view and walls that open in mild weather. The food, especially the tacos (try the lamb and the pulled pork, maybe stay away from the lemon fish) is very tasty, as is the house margarita ($11). Tacos are about $11 for 3, which is adequate for a meal. The quacamole is bland, and the chip sauces range from mild to very spicy but miss the middle ground. I'll go back for lunch, but not diner -- which was PAINFULLY loud. It's one thing to have an "energetic" vibe, but this is over the top noisy.

Always love it! See the same servers often so I guess there is little turnover in staff - which is a good sign! Only great comments about the food, flexibility with bringing a toddler, and the orange crushes are a fan fave!
