We decided to take a small group (8) of work colleagues to a very nice Columbus restaurant to celebrate and have a team bonding experience. The last time I went to Barcelona was a few years earlier and decided to go back here since I knew the experience is always good, it's in German Village which is a great part... More

We recently enjoyed dinner here for the second time in a couple of years. The bottom line is that we had a very enjoyable time. The service, as a number of other reviewers have indicated, was top notch. We only had the tapas, no entrees, and enjoyed it. Some reviews complain that the food is only "ok", not exceptional, and...

We dine with another couple on a Friday evening. The restaurant was busy and tables close together. We ordered the white sangria. Sangria should have fruit in it and this one did not. Menu has a lot of seafood on it which everyone likes except me. They were willing to make a vegetable paella with add chicken. The spicy peach... More

I love this place. The wait staff is awesome (ask for Layla!) and the menu changes monthly. That said my go to is the tapas plate, a nice assortment. And the squid ink paella is delicious!

Visiting my daughter at Ohio state, four of us went to dinner at the Barcelona. The room is bright and busy. The service excellent. I shared the Paella Barcelona with my daughter. The paella was dry and consisted mostly rice. The rest of the party shared some tapas including shrimp, mussels and croquetas. All were good but not exceptional. The... More

Fantastic atmosphere and great food. The crowd is sophisticated and energetic. I particularly recommend the short rib paella, pan fried almonds and seafood stew. Great place for a celebration, large or small!!

I chose Barcelona for a special night and was delighted with the choice. Our Waiter, Dave, was perfect in providing just the right amount of attention. Never neglected nor over solicitous. They offered a sampler of 7 dishes which we chose and added a couple of individual dishes. Without a doubt it was the most adventurous meal I have eaten.... More
