This is a typical tapas restaurant. Decent selection of appetizers and Tapas. If you're interested in the finger type food and a glass of wine this is your place. If you want to have a regular dinner this is not for you. Food is decent...More

This restaurant has several locations in CT and never fails to please. The tapas are always so good and the selections appealing. If you don't like the noisiness of the place then consider going during happy hour times when the atmosphere is a bit different....More

Despite the well elaborated menu and balanced wine list, we found it to be Overpriced. As the restaurant gets busier with the drinking crowd, the quality of the service Dramatically gets reduced. Thus, I would recommend this place only for casual tapas while having drinks,...More

We walked into a steam bath - heat and humidity and seated next to huge dehumidifier in the middle of the floor. We had three rounds of tapas that went from mediocre to terrible. The bacon wrapped dates were so bad that the waitress didn't...More

Traveling for business and we went here for dinner. The flavors and presentation was incredible. We ordered a dozen different tapas and everything was fantastic. Party of five and we all enjoyed the meal immensely. Service was great; attentive and polite.

This is a New Haven favorite. Food is consistently good and the wait staff is amazingly attentive. Try the sangria and the calamari. Most small plates are shareable by far but don't feel bad if you don't want to.

Not as far as I know. From what I saw, I would very much doubt that the kitchen is kosher. Call them and ask.

Barcelona New Haven opened in 2006 and is our largest restaurant in CT. Winner of the New Haven Advocate's "Best New Restaurant" and "Best Wine List," Barcelona is located next to the Omni Hotel in downtown New Haven just steps from Yale University. Here we have combined some of our favorite elements in a single location. A street level lounge overlooks a dining bar area with a stone fireplace. The sophisticated glass-and-steel dining room is framed by a 2000-bottle refrigerated wine cellar. The dramatic 80-seat private room is dominated by a larger than life, wall to wall, 30-foot mural of a Spanish bullfighter, and a 20-person chef's table, fashioned from a single walnut tree, borders the busy open kitchen.
