We arrived there were multiple open tables inside and out and were still told it was a 20 minute wait. Tables did not get cleaned for long periods of time. When finally seated we ordered a sandwich and salad - no cooking involved waited over 45 minutes. Asked waitress she said she told her manager - unlikely. Asked her again she got a bit nasty with us. Another 15 minutes passed we went looking for manager - who should have been making the rounds seeing how customers were doing. he was very unapologetic saying we were #38 and had to wait our turn. Told him we were leaving and going to give a bad review he told us to feel free. Here's that promised review. Stay away from Baba - extremely substandard service. With so many great bars/restaurants in Asbury I'd suggest spending your money where you are treated with good service.

We decided to try Baca for this Friday Food Night. We had been to the bar before but now we wanted to sample the food. When you walk in, you're first aware of the bar. The base is lit with a nice-shade-of blue and it was fairly full when we arrived. It looked like an after work crowd who were enjoying themselves. We sat at one of the bar style table. There are sections that had a sofas surrounding low tables just perfect for relaxing with a drink. The TV's were on but not loud; it was a bit of background noise. We ordered vodka martinis and they were good. We had the sushi from the happy hour menu (there was also a free jalapeno appetizer if you like them on Facebook). The sushi was fine; we've had better and worse. We ordered burgers, one beef, one veggie. This came with some pretty great fries-hot, crispy and full of flavor. The veggie burger was one of the best I've ever eaten but, because veggie burgers don't hold together like meat ones do, I had a lot more burger than bun. The hamburger was fine; again, we've had better and worse.The service is great at least around 5 on a Friday. The vibe was happy and upbeat . We'll bring some summer friends/family here at least for drinks.

Not sure how they are staying in business since this chic, cavernous restaurant/bar was empty. We came for sushi happy hour which was a good value. The drinks are fair. There are too many bars in the area that are offering happy hour martinis using premium liguor. Baca could do better. The atmosphere is fabulous but the bar scene was boring. But to be fair, my visit was off-season and during the week. Hopefully, the weekends are better.

Suuuuuper trendy spot to enjoy some late night drinks. If your lucky enough to get a table you will get great service. If your stuck standing you will have trouble getting rounds at the bar. Good thing about this place is that it makes sense in a t shirt or a suit.
