Had a great time today. Food was exceptional. It was steak & wine night and the Wagu filet with Lobster tail exceeded my expectation. The flavor of the Wagu was amazing. We had the Chef Board and Oysters for starters to share and both plates were excellent. The live music created an enjoyable ambiance. Service was very friendly and just wanted to please us.

So.. my wife and I went out on one of our date nights and wanted to try Barcelona since the outside looked classy and the menu looked interesting.
Food was not as we expected.
Food was very generic and bland.
Not handled properly
Not presented in a manner that was depicted on the menu
Over all not somewhere that we will be returning.
Seemed that they were preparing to open as a nightclub instead of a restaurant.
(Place did say lounge, but had a DJ playing dance music way too loud)

The place had a very casual atmosphere. Did not see many guests dinning as historically this place was viewed as a sports bar and a night life spot for music and dancing. I asked for the food Menu and was impressed by the plates. Octopus, Fois gras, Duck Taco's, smoked chicken, Duck Pasta, Empenada, Paella and Quail. In addition to the traditional plates that you normally find in all the restaurants Fillet, Ribeye and fish of the day. I was curious and tried the Paella and Fois gras. The food was as good as any five stars restaurants. Price point was very reasonable. The experience was good. The service is acceptable nothing major to complain about. However, my recommendation to the management of the place is to get better trained servers. Would go back to try out some of the other dishes.

I had a reservation for three people. We arrived in time but the person at the reception said that there is no sitting available. She mentioned that there is a booth available but she has to seat someone else there (so I guess the booth was NOT available). We told her that we can wait if needed a half an hour or so, but she said she didn't know if she'll have tables later. Then she offered us the only table available which was right in front of the entrance. It didn't seem that there should have been a table right there as it was in the way of the people walking in and out and in the way of the servers.
Because we were right by the reception we all could hear when a couple walked in and asked for a table but didn't have a reservation. After a short conversation and a few laughs, the receptionist told them 'let me see what I can do', went in the back, came back and sat them at the booth that was 'reserved'.
The waitress was very nice, professional, but she seemed to handle alone half of the restaurant, so it was obvious that she needed help. There was someone else trying to help her, but she didn't seem to know what she was doing.
Overall, I would not go there again for dinner. Perhaps I will try the bar upstairs and check out the music, but as far as I am concerned, it is not a place to take someone for a nice dinner.

I'm not one to write reviews, but I do read them. Since I receiving an email request fr OpenTable, here's the truth: I liked Barcelona's exterior and menu, so decided to try it. I read mixed online reviews, but the more recent ones were best, so I made reservations for Valentine's Day 2020. The entryway was very plain and uninviting to the remainder of the venue. The wait staff was very pleasant and attentive, but somehow lacked the professionalism that I was expecting. Couples were sat in a meeting room near the front door, as plain as the entryway, where a dozen or so tables-for-two were arranged a few feet apart. I used folded paper menus to stop my table from wobbling. Perhaps the intent was to provide an intimate place for couples, away from the main room crowd. However, the proximity to other couples in the room gave no privacy, and the arrangement felt more like couples had been sat at the holiday children's tables. I never saw other parts of the restaurant. My date's dinner looked palatable; however, I only managed a few bites of mine. We decided to just spend for candles and stay home next year.

I had high expectation going to this establishment. I think they should change the name of the restaurant from Barcelona to something else.

I reserved a table for two for this recent valentine dinner at 6:30 pm. My wife and I were seated at a table set up in the middle of walking area. I asked to be seated at the booth, as I noticed that there were three booths available. I was told that those were taken. However throughout the entire time that we were there, no one was seated at none of the three empty booth.

The set menu was as bad as the set up of my table. For $110 dinner for two, I did not expect much. I think it was an insult to the patrons and to the spirit of valentine by serving a $5 a bottle champagne.

Barcelona! My first and last time.

When we went there, the restaurant is very busy. There was only one server who helped us with our large group.at first but eventually more staff helped us.There were some issues with the order of our food that some order did not come right as stated on the menu. It was good that we were set up in a private area away from main dining area as we have kids in our party. The staff our nice though that they tried to accommodate our group even on a busy night. Overall experience is ok.
