Went to a private party here recently. Food was very good. We had a raw bar which was excellent and a taco bar which was very good. Service could not have been better and the vibe and ambiance made it a terrific evening.

Food is by the piece. Easy to enjoy different foods like with small plates. Ambiance is great. On the river with indoor and outdoor seating. Fun place.

This restaurant is Noisy and overrated. Wait service is decent at best. We had to flag down waiters. Large bar crowd contributes to the noise level. Food is excellent though not conducive to small children.More

Very good tapas food in a busy, happening restaurant on the cove. Consistently good food, with an interesting variety of dishes, when we have eaten at Bar Taco. Service is attentive. Be prepared for a wait if you come at peak times. Fun dining experience.

Definitely more Tex Mex. the tacos are inexpensive but very very small. You need at least six plus a salad for lunch.
