We had early dinner (5:30) and enjoyed our evening. Food is amazing and service is great. Waiter was attentive, had suggestions and also gave us plenty of time to make our decision. We ordered tuna crudo, chickpea hummus, croquetas and empanadas. All were delicious. We...More

We had a beautiful lunch here, with excellent advice from knowlegeable serving staff about the wines and sherries. Barcelona is actually a franchise chain, but each resto has its own chef and many individualized dishes. The music is too loud for older ears, but the...More

I have visited the restaurant multiple times and each time the food was amazing. If you go to this restaurant you should order the tapas.

My friends all ordered salami plates and croquettes which we found to be reasonably sized but kind of pricey. However overall the ambience of the place is nice, the service was amiable & I would go back there again.

The first thing you notice on entering is the DEAFENING NOISE! Then you notice the hipsters. If you can get beyond this -- and it's almost impossible to get over the noise -- the food is pretty good. It's not very authentic Spanish food, but...More

The small plates are always delicious but the noise is also always deafening. We were there with a large party and the service was very good considering the size of the group. The noise keeps us away, but younger people are probably very happy there.More

The food at Barcelona is tasty, but not authentically Spanish. Although the dishes are based on Spanish bar food, they lack flair. Some are overly refined, others are bland; and there's nothing original or inspired to them. This is not to say that you can't...More

Barcelona meets Brookline, and a sophisticated Boston neighborhood has a wine bar to call its own. A historic town located minutes from downtown Boston, Brookline is the perfect mixture of urban and country living. From large estates and recreational parks to boutiques and pedestrian-filled streets, Brookline offers a city atmosphere in a suburban setting. Located in Washington Square at 1700 Beacon Street, Barcelona is the newest addition to this lively neighborhood dining destination. A mix of antique wire glass, steel and reclaimed wood gives our newly built space a vintage appeal. The rustic, polished environment is the next best thing to eating tapas and drinking wine in our restaurant's namesake city. With hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and spacious patio, the space has a European charm which fills the menu as well.
