    Loved the options, it was hard to narrow it down to just a few, but it's a great reason to go back and try some other things too. The date and fig with fruit dessert was really amazing, fresh and the Spanish almonds served with it was a fabulous pairing.

    Great service and the food is excellent! We usually go in a group of 5-6 and order 2 dishes each and share. Everything we've ordered is superb and has exceeded our expectations. Such a fun restaurant, we've made it a tradition to eat there each time we are in downtown Indy visiting. It's a bit off the beaten path but a nice walk. Worth the walk or drive, you will love it!

    The Sunday brunch is pretty amazing here, especially for those who aren't keen on breakfast food. They have a good mix of breakfast foods and regular fare. Reasonable price for what is included in the brunch: buffet; as many rounds as you want from 3 specialized brunch items (eggs Benedict, tres leche french toast, and made-to-order omelets); and it is supposed to include one sangria (white or traditional red). This was our second visit for the brunch, and the quality did not seem to be on par with our first visit. Our server was nice, but never offered the included sangria for anyone in our party. That said, this is by far the most interesting and different brunch buffet we could find in Indy, and the selection did not disappoint!

    Had a fun evening at BARcelona Tapas this past weekend. Love the goat cheese and meatballs! All time fav though is the Tres Leche Cake. I will be dreaming about that for a long time! Friendly waitstaff. I little on the pricy side for the portions served, but nice place for a special occassion or large group of people!

    Great food! Really good choices for regular, gluten-free or vegetarian eaters. Had the Patatas Bravas; a simple dish, but I could've eaten them all night! Also had the Grilled salmon with sherry cream, lemon and caperberry, wow! Service was wonderful! Restaurant charming. Wish we had time to try more dishes. Go here, you will be glad you did.

    We have been to brunch at Barcelona on many occasions and loved it. It's been a couple of years but we decided to meet some friends for Brunch before the Colts game, and then hang out downtown and get the "ambiance". WOW....I could not have been more disappointed. The made to order Spanish Eggs Benedict, which I always order, came doused in the worse excuse for Hollandaise sauce I have ever tasted. You couldn't even eat the meat or egg around it because the sauce covered everything. I felt I should tell the wait staff that it was bad in case someone else ordered it, and she said it has Saffron in it which is an acquired taste. I didn't taste saffron or anything else. It just tasted like flour and butter. Prime Rib overcooked. Bummer.

    The St Louis location was recommended to me, so while passing through town I thought I'd try it the Indy location. Wish I'd skipped it. It's not that anything was terrible, but just not all that good. The room reminds me of what people who haven't been to Spain think a Spanish restaurant should look like. It was early, so I didn't expect it to be crowded, but there the place was empty -- which nearby restaurants were hopping. Service was so-so. But the food really needs help. Adding slices of garlic to every dish -- including those that a Spaniard wouldn't dream of -- doesn't make it authentic or tasty. Oh well -- the beer was good!

    I came here one evening to catch up with a few out of town friends. We have a tendency to sit and talk for an extended period of time when we've not seen each other in a while. The staff was patient and accommodating. Food was good. There was nothing to complain about but also nothing spectacular. I'm interested in coming back for paella, though. Pitcher of sangria was plentiful bit nothing worth writing home about.

    On a recent business trip to Indy, four of us went to Barcelona on a local Indy resident recommendation. The food was average. The wine list was below average. The servers were all young, inexperienced and uneducated in regards to the menu. The ambience is non-existent. This looks like a cheesy Mexican joint.

    The food and service was outstanding as always. The only drawback was that our group was placed in the private dining room, which is just really loud. Another group was placed in there with us and by then you could not even hear the person next to you.

The server was reluctant to respond to our requests for additional drinks, condiments,removal of empty plates etc . We will not recommend or return.

    The asparagus with manchengo cheese was cooked perfectly. The garlic pepper wings with sherry aioli were fantastic. Also had the patatas bravas and curried chicken salad which were also great. The goat cheese and marinara was good, but not amazing. Loved the carmel filled churros though! The white sangria was also very tasty. Our waiter was helpful and everyone was well aware and considerate of my severe tree nut allergy which allowed me to relax and enjoy my meal. All in all a great experience. We will be back.

    No complaints! The food is always great! The only suggestion is maybe somehow in the future re-configuring the hostess station. If your sitting at that first booth you stare at a lot of butts during your meal and feel crowded out with people waiting to be sat.

    My husband and I went there for a Devour Downtown 2014 dinner and put ourselves in the hands of our waitress. It was wonderful and her choices were perfect. My least favorite, even though it was still good, was the curried chicken salad. After that the goat cheese, asparagus, sautéed mushrooms, shrimp and chorizo paella, and churros were perfect. Loved it! Best of all, they make a great Caipirinha.

    If you're looking for a fun and unique place to go for dinner, this is the place. The baked goat cheese with spicy tomato sauce is one of the best items on the menu! If you've never been to a tapas place, it's small amounts of food that you share. Give it a try! I Highly recommend you go!

    We had a group of six women from work and had an awesome time! Service was great, food was delicious and there was plenty to go around! We took advantage of the "Devour Downtown" event and it was 2 people for $35, which we felt was reasonable for the amount of food we ended up with. We had leftovers that we took home and all went home full! We will definitely keep this on our list for ladies' night out in the future.

    When we arrrived we were overlooked while later tables were waited on. I had to speak with the person who sat us to let them know we have been forgotten. Later a server arrived carrying glasses of ice water which she accidentally spilled in my lap (forcing us to move to another table). Not an auspicious start to the evening. None-the-less, this was our 4th visit and the food was great. We did the Devour Downtown menu which was excellent. We brought 2 guests who had never been before and they really liked it. We will be back -- the food has always been fantastic. Next time I will wear a rain coat until after water is served.

    Enjoyed all the items offered on the Devour menu. Great food, atmosphere, service and beverages. Was on a second date, so all those things are helpful. The paella is killer and the Mojito was very good, if a little overpriced. Service was attentive but not annoying.
