    This restaurant was absolutely worth the hype. We shared the focaccia, Indian Egg, agnolotti, and roasted brussels sprouts. Everything was superb. The wines-by-the-glass list is thoughtful and very fairly priced. The bartender was great about helping us select wines to drink with the food.

    We we're able to get a table and it was so worth the wait. Everything we ordered was elegant and delicious and the service was sublime. The small footprint keeps the noise level low and the wine list has plenty of selection to pull it all together. Can't wait to go back!

    What an absolute treasure to find this little tucked away spot. I almost feel embarrassed it has been open 6 years and we are finally finding this experience. Baran’s 2239 is set in an unassuming store front on PCH but as soon as you open the doors you are drawn in to a culinary experience. Each course is sharably sized and the flavors jump from each bite. Literally everything we were served was incredible (and my wife and I ordered about half the menu). The only near disappointment was their inability to fulfill my request for a wheel barrel to get myself to the car… we were stuffed, but oh so happy. You will not be disappointed! It is amazing!

    Barans is a gourmet treat in Hermosa Beach. Each dish we tried was carefully prepared, creatively inspired and delicious. We enjoyed sharing dishes and having the opportunity to taste each of our 5 dishes.

    The food and our waiter were terrific!! When we got there just after 6pm, the noise level was high and it was pretty crowded. Over the course of the hour and a half we were there, the noise level (along with the crowd numbers) dropped. The focaccia bread was really good, as was the maple apple salad. The New York steak was 8oz and already cut and there were 5 large French fries. The chocolate mousse was fantastic! Our waiter was awesome as well. All in all, a great experience.

    Absolutely my favorite restaurant in LA. We started with the sashimi, then the zucchini (which had cheese and corn deliciousness), melon salad (great mix of sweet melon and savory bits), seabass, shrimp risotto (amazing) and duck. Every dish was sooooo good. Had the coffee toffee pudding and the stone fruit cheesecake too. We liked the cheesecake better. Going back at the beginning of October for our anniversary. Can’t wait!

    The food is amazing...everthing! and the service is perfect! Only wish the tables were a little further apart because you are so close you can hear your neighbors entire conversation. It's a tiny restaurant...very well decorated and clean. They pack as many people as they can into this tiny space. Get there early!

    Everything we ordered was just perfect! It’s our 2nd time coming here and definitely coming for more. Each order is meticulously prepared - I had the sea bass & wife had the duck, both very good. You should also try their seasonal salads. Except for a couple, most of the food on their menu is different as they constantly change their menu. And for the price which is VERY REASONABLE & the Service (John is great) - excellent!

    Everything we had was amazing not a bit left. We started with their amazing foccachia bread then had a refreshing melon salad, next up was this amazing zucchini and blistered tomato dish-so good! Our three entrees were the seafood risotto, sea bass with a yummy lemony sauce, and the house made angoliotti with fresh pork. We finished the dinner off with the melt in your mouth dark chocolate cake. As I said every bite was amazing!

    The food is unusual and unique. The menu is rather limited. I really missed the wonderful bread they used to provide. That was actually the reason I wanted to go to Baran’s. Alas it is no more. They did have a delicious focaccia bread that was similar to that bread but was an extra charge. Sigh

    Exquisite food and great wine! My wife asked the waiter to just bring a combination of things that he would recommend together but we did request the sea bass as one of them. The food was fresh, the flavors were well balanced, and things that were supposed to be spicy were boldly spicy. We will definitely be back.
