Amazing food, drinks and service. We order 4 tapas and a Paella, our favorite was the Grilled Octopus and the Pan con Tomate, can wait to come back
Our favorite! Casual, but upscale in terms of food & service. The patio is perfect for a night on with friends to enjoy their delicious food and drinks.
Wonderful food and service. Will definitely be back!
Love love love! great happy hour, great food, great drinks
Favorite restaurant in Charleston, best Paella around!
The four of us had a great time sampling from all the delicious plates.
We don't live in Charleston but when we're there, we eat. Barsa is one of our favorite places. Always good! We've taken friends there and recommended it to others. We'll be back.
Second time back and did not disappoint! We’ve been plotting our return since our first taste of octopus, stuffed peppers, and obviously the seafood paella! Will 100% return, and likely not wait very long!
Thanks to everyone at Barsa we had an amazing experience!
Always delicious! One of my favorite restaurants in Charleston.
Great as always!
Everything was great and our server Emma was incredible
We were looking for a place to eat a light dinner, as we arrived from out of town the evening we dined at Barsa. We ordered 4 things and all were delicious.
Great food , great value
Enjoyed the Brussel sprouts, bravitas, and sangria for happy hour!
Great service and delish food, wine and cocktails. We had the perfect arrangement for a casual birthday celebration with few friends. I would go back any time for any reason.
Loved our meal at Barsa! The food and wine were amazing. The bacon wrapped dates are not to be missed, and the cheese/cured meat selection is fantastic and reasonably priced. Only downside is that the jazz band, while fabulous, was so loud that conversations were not to be had - but would absolutely go back. Loved it.
Jenni at Barsa is the best server in Charleston!
Sum it up in two words: patatas bravas
Delicious food & good service.
I enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The service was better than average. The paella lack a bit of broth and bordered on the dry, slightly overdone side. Despite that, it was tasty. Had a few decent Spanish reds. Patatas bravas was good but could have use a bit more dressing. The atmosphere is nice and service was better than average. King St. is very competitive food environment with lots of quality choices and Barsa holds it own.
I’ve heard so many amazing things about Barsa and they definitely did not disappoint. Max, our server was fantastic. Great with recommendations and any questions we had. The chicken and chorizo paella was outstanding!! The only negative was that it was our anniversary and there was nothing mentioned. I will definitely return though!
The ambiance was lacking as we had spot lights shinning right on us. The food was good, but not something I’d have to go back for.
Barsa is always excellent! Brought a friend to try it and she was very impressed. The beet salad is divine, with a yummy yogurt dressing. Seafood paella is worth the 45 minutes you need for them to make it ... fresh and delicious. Also had the broccolini, with a wonderful zing of red pepper, and the ciabatta with manchego (my husband's favorite). Barsa always delights us!
Very well put together establishment. 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
Sitting outside was really nice. Food is great, just wish they’d space it out better!
I always love Barsa!
My wife and I went there for the first time and left very impressed. The service was great from the moment we sat down. Our server was very knowledgeable on the wine and knew the menu inside and out. The food came quickly and was spaced out just right. I highly recommend Barsa and we will definitely be back.
The service was very disappointing and very slow. Waitress recommend sharing a dish that was not enough for 2. Waited at least 45 minutes to get this dish. Ordered a glass of wine and after 20 minutes she said that they were out of that wine. Left hungry and went downtown and had pizza. They offered a free dessert pathetic. They should have taken that food off the bill. I'm actually sorry I left a good tip. As far as I'm concerned they owe me a dinner.Roger 973-222-3362 give me a call.
great music, but impossible to talk, even to the person sitting next to you. food was yummy and lots of good selections. great place to hang out listening to music while enjoying good food.
Catching up with friends
Website & Open table did not mention outside seating was available but we did enjoy the raised seated table. Our server was great & overall it looked and sounded as if every server would have been great that night.
One of our favs.
I would definitely recommend Barsa if you’re looking for a relaxed casual atmosphere, very good food, and a very reasonable price. The service was only so so, but the salad and paella we shared were delicious. Good selection of low priced wines by the glass. Overall a great value.
Fun place with eclectic tastes!!! Awesome and unique!! Service was terrific!
Excellent all around. One of the best meals we’ve had in Charleston. Highly recommend!
