Barcelona Restaurant & Bar
Excellent food and service!Our evening was excellent overall. Service great and good perfect.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOutside is the bestDining on the Barcelona patio remains one if the gems of Columbus. Of course, the patio comes second to the always professional service, amazing food (and selection) and just right cocktails and wine list.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSpanish fusion in a great setting!Delightful tapas, wines, desserts and service - if I lived in Columbus, I would make this a regular haunt! The goat cheese stuffed avocado and pan roasted crab cakes were my favorites among the nine dishes we got. The special pastry was a chocolate lavender cake with what seemed like less cake than decadent butter cream icing layers, a spectacular dessert.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat time!It was my first time experiencing Barcelona and I truly enjoyed it. I had the Spanish Onion Soup and the Credo (Pork) and both were equally delicious. I also enjoyed the guitarist (I was there on a Sunday night). At first I thought it would be authentic Spanish music but I was pleasantly surprised when I heard the melody of 'Come Together' by the Beatles and 'Dream On'! I definitely would love to come back and have already suggested it to friends. If I could give one note, I would say that the restaurant is not fit for young children. Working in the restaurant industry I realize you cannot exclude children but If suggesting it to someone, I would say that it isn’t kid friendly.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBarcelona does it again!Our Mother's Day luncheon was a delight! The Tapas as appetizers and the main courses were perfect. We were particularly pleased that we were not rushed, nor did we feel neglected. Time between courses was appropriate and relaxing. My wife's dessert, when she tried it, was not to her liking. It was graciously exchanged for another that she really enjoyed. The Orange-Pistachio Cheesecake was out of this world!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI enjoy your hour invitesI enjoy your hour invites for wine and tapas. Keep those coming and the prices fairly prices at $15 is a perfect week night out.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReally greatIt was very nice, best food so far at Barcelona, and it's always very good.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTwo words: Incredible evening!Food, service, wine, etc. was top notch. Everyone should eat here. Period.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!As always, Barcelona was great. We enjoyed chowder and small plates and a really nice bottle of wine. Service was wonderful, just right. The Sunday night jazz featuring Richard Lopez and Roger Hines was a perfect compliment to the evening.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ExperienceMy husband and I made reservations to celebrate our 5th year anniversary. Our dining experience was very pleasant. Our waiter, John was knowledgeable and extremely professional. The restaurant has a very romantic feel. Our meals, chicken and crab cakes were delicious. We definately will come back for another fabulous dining experience and will probably request seating outside.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent foodAlthough we were longing to sit on the patio for our anniversary, we still had a great time. Our server, John, was very attentive and friendly. I loved every piece of food that came to our table from the bread, to the avocado with goat cheese, my husbands paella was amazing and I had a scallop dish that had a great flavor. Next time we hope to dine on the patio but we hope to go back at least once more before the summer is over.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOne word AWESOMEThis was my first visit to Barcelona. I was blown away with the taste of the food, the quality of service, and the overall dining experience. I have to say it was one of my most favorite restaurant visits and leads the top of my list of places to visit again.

Good food, great ambiance but we could have been seated at a better table for lunch. Ate on the patio which was nice but they seated us in the corner when better tables were available. Always uncertain if they have certain tables set aside for open table guests. Felt rushed by server.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service. A gemThis is our first time to Barcelona Restaurant. The food is excellent, especially the scallop dishes, one on the appetizer menu, and the other on the entree. The chef really knows how to cook scallop the right way. Texture, taste and freshness were perfect. Our server, John provided excellent and attentive service. His recommendation on wine on the glass and the food on the menu all turned out to be excellent. He is knowledgable, professional, friendly and attentive without imposing. He has a great attitude, someone that knows and love wine and food, and really enjoy being there.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe sat on their lovely patio.We sat on their lovely patio.

Authentic Spanish Catalan cuisine expertly prepared and presented by a top notch serving staff. We think of Barcelona as our downtown home for dining out. Beyond the terrific menu, watch for special tastings and dining events.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI would recommend BarcelonaI would recommend Barcelona to all of the foodies, great atmosphere and excellent service! There was an extensive and gratifying tapas menu as well as mouth-watering entrées and the wine list was definitely for the wine enthusiast!
My husband and I started off with Calamares Fritos - flash fried calamari. Although a little seasoning was needed, they were very fresh and fried to perfection!
For our entrees, I had the Paella de Costillas y Vieras – braised beef short ribs/pan roasted scallops soaked in herbs/spices over calasparra rice! It was amazing!! I could taste every flavor and if I had not eaten the fresh bread brought to us, I would have devoured every bite! My husband ordered the Filete – grilled beef filet wrapped in bacon, cur4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the DriveBarcelona has always been a go-to place for special occasions, but on our recent visit,we were reminded of what a wonderful restaurant it really is. Barcelona has something for everyone-a delicious selection of cocktails and wine at the bar, small plates (tapas) for the budget minded who want outstanding food and many choices,entrees that are hard to match anywhere, and desserts that you can't pass up. The specials are always worth trying, and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Barcelona may have changed chefs, but they haven't missed a beat. This restaurant is worth a drive from Circleville; what are you waiting for if you live in Franklin county? (And it will patio time soon! Beautiful!)4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time I'm in ColumbusEvery time I'm in Columbus I try to have dinner at Barcelona and I am never disapponited. It's a great way to impress business companions. This time I had the pork shank and it was fantastic, especially with the potato puree and the mushroom rosemary sauce. To top it off I had the dessert special of goat cheese and rosemary ice cream. OMG!!! I think the waiter said it is homemade and if it is, you need to sell it in stores because I would eat it by the bucket full.
It seems my dinners always stretch to 3 plus hours because the food and ambience is so conducive to long leisurely chats. When weather permits I always ask for the patio.
I look forward to my next trip to Columbus.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience. WonderfulExcellent experience. Wonderful food and fabulous service. Highly recommended.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Columbus's finest!I love the feel, food and service. The wine selection and small plate options have expanded. The choices are awesome and tasty!

Even if I am not sure of my choice I have never been disappointed. I am not that adventureus of an eater, so for me trying new foods is a challenge.
