Located in the gloriously updated first floor of The Hollywood Roosevelt, The Barish is Chef Nancy Silverton's latest addition to the Los Angeles dining scene. Our restaurant pays homage to Nancy's family who raised cattle at the Barish Farm in central Canada. The menu features steakhouse classics, pasta al forno, along with some of Nancy's reimagined Italian favorites. We look forward to seeing you.

Food was really good! Service was nice, but for this level of restaurant needs to be faster, with great attention to detail. Get that first introduction done as soon as guests sit down and that 1st cocktail into their hands sooner rather than waiting 15-20. Cheers!

$8 for one - ONE! - very average, roll. $80 for a 6 oz (not Waygu) steak. That's my take-away from The Barish. We were excited to go there, have dined at Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza for years. We're also steak fans and regularly eat at Cut, Mastros, Mortons, Bourbon Steak, etc. Silverton + Steak=no brainer ... I wish.

The room is lovely 1930's Spanish, but crammed and very noisy. We arrived early, and sent to wait in a foyer. The Hotel bar/lobby was booked for a wedding and blocked off. So we didn't get to see the historic space at all.

The food: started with the farmhouse roll. For 8 dollars, I expected a basket - not just one very average roll with a tiny smear of butter. I've had way better bread products at Nancy's other restaurants - no charge. Moving on to the salad: an iceberg wedge with lots of bacon, not enough gorgonzola.

We shared a pasta al forno, the Torchio, which came in a cute cast iron baking dish. It's a wonderful Mac and cheese with fontina, gruyere, and gouda with a nicely brown top from the wood-fired oven. The first bites were creamy and delicious. Then as we continued with the dish, the pasta quickly absorbed all that incredible sauce. The last bits ended up very much on the dry side. My advice: don't talk to your date while eating the pasta!

Next, steak and salt baked fries. The steak offerings are limited to just four cuts, no specials. It's a steak house!!! Settled on the Rib Eye cap; we each ordered our own. I'm not going to lie, the steak was incredible. Perfectly cooked and completely satisfying. The highlight of the meal. The "fries" were actually a giant baked potato cut into spears with a huge glob of "Calabrian chili aoili" that looked and tasted like spicy mayo from a sushi bar.

Drinks: the bourbon list was obscure and lacking. Wines: ok. The desert menu: sparse and boring: gelatos, a cookie, and bread pudding.

At over $400 for 2, The Barish should be much more than 6 oz of exceptional meat.

Very average with a small range of bar choices and food, especially if you want healthy with diet restrictions. No fresh fish, no chicken, no substitutions on special requests. I get it. It’s their restaurant and we made it work. Service was good.

Nancy Silverton triumphs again! From the superb food to the Old Hollywood ambiance to the decor, the place works on all cylinders. Our party of four enjoyed all the dishes-- especially the dutch baby, uniquely designed rigatoni, sweetbreads, rib eye-- even the smoky mushrooms and fresh mouth-watering rolls. The cocktails are wonderfully classic and they make a mean martini. The olive oil gelato was delicious and enough to share with many.

The food was just ok. The ambience was very well done and the location is great. We had the vegetables appetizer which was over cooked and covered in oil. The goat cheese and corn pasta was cloyingly sweet and also drenched in oil. The steak was cooked as ordered medium rare, it was a little more rubbery than expected. If staying in the hotel, it’s a good meal. If not, there are much better in the area.

We have never dined here before. Had dinner pre-theater and opted for the pre-theater menu. Unfortunately due to supply chain shortages, the options for first courses was reduced by a third and no substitution offered. Caesar salad made with chicory was drowning in a covering of finely shredded cheese, the steak was delicious but two knives were offered and both were amazingly dull. Very hard to cut. Pasta option was trendy but a rather small portion for a rather large price. For two people without wine or cocktails and with a generous gratuity it approached $180. Will not likely return.

We went to The Barish on a quiet weeknight. Got seated between two active tables when there were plenty of less crowded spots available, but no big deal. Our server was wonderful, attentive and knowledgable. Cocktails were tasty, good wine selection, dishes were well-paced, well-cooked, and delicious. We got the dutch baby w prosciutto, wedge salad (cleverly served so it's very easy for two people to split,) hubs got creamed mustard greens & the pork chop, I got fries and the ribeye cap with horseradish cream, and we shared a sundae for dessert. The manager came by to check in with us, which was lovely. (I mentioned we were celebrating a birthday and she didn't do anything fun to acknowledge it with dessert, but no big deal.) It's a sceney place, which you have to expect given where it is. Same for the price. But a lovely night out in Hollywood.

The food was outstanding! We had the rolls with the most incredible butter, the pizza which wasn’t really a pizza in the classic sense, but was heavenly nonetheless with its yummy ricotta. The wedge salad had so many interesting ingredients that took it to a whole other level. The duck was perfectly cooked… Crispy on the outside tender on the inside. The olive oil gelato was the refreshing end to an incredible dinner!

This is a STUNNING restaurant! Very classic Hollywood feel. Service was impeccable and the food, well what would you expect from Nancy Silverton? She again delivers nothing less than perfection, from the cocktails, pastas, grilled meats and DESSERT! You must try the Barish Martini, Rotolo pasta dish and save room for the olive oil gelato with candied peanuts!

I am surprised and disappointed to give this review. Roll and salad came out within ten minutes and were delicious. Took another 30 minutes for a total of 40 minutes to get sweetbreads, which were very good. Took another 30 minutes to get entrees even though I told them we needed to leave for the theater., they said they were just plating them. My bavette was cold, so cold the herb butter was not even melting. It had been off the fire long enough to reach room temperature, so you can guess how long that was! They offered to heat it up (a sliced steak cooked rare would be massively overcooked if they put it back on the fire); the duck was not properly rendered and was just warm; the pork chop was medium going to medium rare towards the bone, so not evenly cooked to the promised medium. The mushrooms were delicious but just barely warm. The only hot dish (as in lava hot) were the fries (really potato wedges) that burned your mouth. So, after an hour and forty five minutes, we had almost an hour of no food between the courses. It was a disappointing birthday meal and from one of my favorite chef's. I will limit my visits to the Mozza complex, where I can still get a properly prepared and served meal.
