This was my favorite restaurant but on the last visit I was disappointed. The branzino was cold and flavorless with a side of grill vegetables that seemed very plain.

Excellent meal, better than expected as we tend to be a bit more harsh than the norm. Attentive service and outstanding food with normal (aka non-Texan) portion size.

What a fabulous dining experience! The ambiance was understated elegance and the service was first class! We sat at the bar and had a drink before going to our table. Classy glassware and interesting wine options and stunningly beautiful cocktails. The real star was the food! Happy Happy taste buds! The bread alone was to die for! We had two apps: spicy shrimp and a scallop appetizer. Both were fantastic. My husband had the stuffed quail entree and I had the salmon carpaccio. The visual is too beautiful to even describe and the flavors. . .sigh! Desserts were outstanding as well. This was such a treat for a milestone birthday but I will return. . .just because it is so worth it!

BCN just happens to be the most elegant and unique dining experience in Houston. The gin and tonics are the go to cocktail and then consider a bottle of Clio to bring your dinner to its optimum tasting. Paco and his team are the epitome of customer service and if you are lucky you just might get the best table - at the fireplace.

It was our first time at BCN and maybe I was expecting too much since this place is usually named in the top 10 romantic restaurants in Houston. We chose BCN for our wedding anniversary.
As per the decor, I would rather call it upscale business restaurant. The place is very clean and with nice neutral colored rooms, but tables were a little bit plain (not sure if this could be due to COVID-19 measures). Since the restaurant is in a repurposed house, it only had single bathroom for each gender per floor; though they were well appointed, you may have to wait in line to use it.
Employees were attentive, even though it was kind of a busy evening. They were well dressed/nice tailored cut giving a posh feeling to the establishment.
Food is mostly good with a few misses. The tuna tartare amuse bouche and the croquettes were delicious. I did not know what to do with the bread which was accompanied by salt and olive oil, so I treated it as I do in italian restaurants. The lentil soup needed a little bit more ham flavor. My wife did not care for the lobster, but my duck breast was delicious. For dessert we opted for the creme brulee filled filo dough; It was good.
The bar makes a good selection of gin cocktails and sangria. The wine list showcased mostly Spanish wines and they were good.
I would have BCN in mind for business meals, not for romantic soirees.

BCN consistently offers the best dinning experience in Houston. The dishes are perfectly executed and the level of service they offer is unparalleled. Patatas bravas, octopus, suckling pig are a must as well BCN’s G&Ts. Oh and don’t leave without having Gypsy’s Arm and the Torta de Santiago for dessert. It’s also important to know that BCN goes above and beyond in following COVID-19 safety protocols. Thank you for making my birthday feel extra special this year!

BCN always demonstrates why they are at or near the top of the restaurant pyramid in Houston, and our recent visit only reinforced my impression. The front of the house, run by Paco Calza, operates smoothly and with class, and Paco will make you feel as welcome as he would if you were his best friend. The food is always tremendous but is also constantly evolving, and the Fall menu currently in use exemplifies this. Instead of finding one or two things in other restaurants I might enjoy, I had great difficulty trying to decide on just about everything. Whatever you choose, you will love it. The wine list features some wonderful Spanish wines and their gin and tonic menus is easily the best in Houston. Great for special occasions even in the limited seating environment we have now, BCN is well worth the cost.
