Every tapas was delicious! Tuna was cooked and seasoned to perfection. Also had mushrooms, fried Brussels, and amazing potato dish called Espanola. Try it!

One of the bartenders kept taking off her sweater and walking around in a bra and it was kinda unappetizing.

Overprice for the amount of food you get. Ordered the mussels and it came with 8 very small mussels, the paella is only good for one. The food is a bit bland. Ambiance is nice, we went at noon so can’t comment much on the noise level since we’re the only ones there.

Even though the website says they're following Covid protocols, three different people brought food to our table not wearing a mask. Our main server kept her mask on, but what the hell? People were walking around the restaurant without masks as if 3 million people haven't been killed by Covid.

Amazing experience- just moved to Clayton from Chicago and I can say that this is going to be our go too spot for dining and entertaining guests. The music was a vibe, the food was amazing and the tequila was on point- only thing they are missing is the new Freshie tequila seltzer. Can’t wait to get back!

The food was mediocre at best. Ordered 4 dishes and it seemed they all had the same spices. The vinho verde tasted like it was opened for a long time. I would not go back.

The menu is different and the food was a nice change. Some very unique dishes and all were very good. The pricing was fair and I would go back. Large menu to find something for everyone.

The chicken wings were absolutely gross. Hunks of garlic, we pulled out almost 1/4 of a bulb of garlic out of 1 dish. Shrimp were bland. The fried artichokes were a hit and that was about it. I’m sure they haven’t recovered from COVID because this was not the BARcelona I know and love.

Very small and unassuming place at first but once you go in, it is amazing. The food is priced well enough that you can order multiple dishes to split. The servers are knowledgeable, friendly, and fast. My wife and I will definitely go back.

We went a few years ago and it was like deja vú...the food was great, the drinks were phenomenal, and even the owner came out to chat and see how our meal was! So sad to hear they’re closing down for development, but rest assured when they open up again we WILL be back!

After initial disappointment with the host (he ignored us for several minutes as he was messing around on his phone - and was very unfriendly), we had a great meal. Our server was fantastic and the food was amazing!!

Good food and good service. But we were seated outside and I had seat facing an abandoned building with tarps draped over interior windows. For a good restaurant with moderate prices, this ruined the ambiance for me. Recommendation to BARcenlona: stay on sidewalk by your restaurant.

Checked multiple locations for current hours which were conflicting as to their open status and finally made the reservation since I couldn’t fathom that tables would be available to make a reservation for tipped the scale into ‘open’ status. However, when we arrived it was clearly not open. It was very disappointing.b

The restaurant was closed for a time that I set my reservation for. Also, there’s a ton of construction going on everywhere and it’s a mess to park there.

The food was awesome! We ordered 4 different small plates and shared. They were served quickly and were all delicious. They all had enjoyable complex flavors. We ate outside, the wait staff wore masks, and tables were space out to maintain social distancing. We really enjoyed our night out.

Where did the other half of the menu go? Used to be my favorite place but the menu shrank to half of it's old size and some of my favorite went with it.
