I have been to BARcelonas twice and both times with a larger group of people. Terrific services, quick, delicious and reasonably priced. No problems with splitting the bill or putting our alcohol on separate checks - very accomodating wait staff. We ordered so many items to share I can't list them all, but I can say that I have enjoyed... More

We arrived at the restaurant with a reservation made for a very large party. We we not seated together at all! We were seated at 5 different tables, with 1 of those tables outside while everyone else was inside. Cray cray, right?!? They assigned 1 waitress for our entire party. We barely saw her. It took 20 minutes until we... More

Not quite as Spanish as they might be but very tasty with good ingredients. Cocktails were a little small but beer was good. Would go back. Only negative, too many flies around.

Great Tapas!!! Just don't go over a major holiday (think Christmas) the usual chef gets a vacation too! Food definitely not up to my standards (having been to Spain) great atmosphere in bar with friends and a nice family dinner area as well.

Visited during Restaurant week. I had a potato pie-ish first course (can't remember what it was called). It was good but not hot, just Luke warm. My paella was quite delicious. The churros were the dessert I chose but I gave them to a coworker so I could have the tres leches (one of my favorite desserts). He said the... More

Our family of four with different preferences had no trouble finding something to satisfy everyone's palatial tastes. The somolillo dish was very tender. Spinach empanadas were a hit. Probably would not reorder the anchovies with caper berries (bland) or the artichokes (too much breading). The tres quesos selection was very good, and the bread pudding was a good way to... More

Unfortunately the food was really average to a touch lower. The wait staff was nice and the atmosphere is lively.The spinach empanadas were made with frozen spinach and likely weren't made onsite. I'm no foody but I was a little disappointed.

Went on a Thursday night after happy hour. There was a large crowd of locals and visiting business types. I had the muscles. They were a bit sandy, so rather than order more tapas, I paid my tab and went back to hotel to finish leftover pizza. It was a fun place, though.

We're not food snobs but have eaten in many places around the world. We look for something in each place that makes us want to come back- creativity, unique dishes, traditional dishes well-prepared or presented or failing all else, great service and people. Barcelona fell short in every area. The room is too dark to read the menu which is... More

We visited on a Thursday evening and sat on the street patio. The patio was filled and inside was busy but there was no wait to be seated. The tapas was good and we enjoyed our selections. Our waiter and the kitchen was extremely slow - I mean like this was a 2 hour dinner slow. So, that being said,... More
