The excellent service and individual attention are a welcome addition to the wonderful food. My husband and I went there to celebrate our birthdays, which fall within a few days of each other. Although appropriately pricey for this level of dining and service, our meal and drinks ( 4 total--excellent gin and tonics and Spanish wine) were a good value. We shared the watermelon burrata salad (very creamy, rich, and delicious) and a lovely dessert. I opted for a lobster salad (some endive and quite a bit of lobster with a nice balance of ingredients) not on the dinner menu for a lighter main course upon the good advice of my server. My husband had the duck, which he thoroughly enjoyed. In addition to very good bread, we also got a couple of complementary bite-sized items from the chef. We were more than satisfied with our exquisite meal for well under $200. Of course, one can spend a lot more for full courses, a bottle of wine, and non-shared items. If you want a special dining experience, BCN offers it in a sedate, relatively quiet (especially if you ask for a quiet table in advance) atmosphere.

Restaurant is gorgeous, however it can be a pain to get to. Food is amazing, staff is attentive. My only complaint was that I requested a table upstairs, and by a window. They had a party upstairs so we had to sit downstairs, which was fine. We were put in a corner so to speak, by an emergency exit. It was probably the only table not near a window. But, the manager comped our dessert which was nice. I would've rather been by a window though. Overall, great place.

This was our second visit to BCN. The ambience is lovely and the service is very competent and was professionally friendly (an improvement this time over our first visit). The Spanish-themed food is all good and a few things (the hot fresh bread, some of the appetizers, and the "Gypsy's Arm" dessert - the best of tiramisu and creme brulee combined!) were outstanding. In the end, though, most of the meal was just less interesting and memorable than what we've had in many of Houston's best restaurants...and at it's top-end prices, it seems like BCNT&T should do better. A nice restaurant, but it doesn't crack my H-Town Top 50.

Great restaurant!!!
I travel often to Spain and I was reluctant to try the restaurant in Houston but what I surprise.
Every dish was executed perfectly, you can taste their products are imported or their supplier is outstanding because the flavors of typical appetizer (anchovies, boquerones, even the olive oil) was like being in Spain.
While enjoying the sopa de acelga with truffles and coliflor and the salad of peas with artichokes hearts and little cubes of jamón ibérico we transition to our main dishes while tasting a great bottle of PSI wine and with a good taste of music in the background that included Pablo Iglesias, Mecano and other great artist. Ambience was optimum, we had the rabbit and the ibérico pork and we could not finish without the Pachara digestive...I was surprise they did not have the orujo liquor. At the end of the velada, Cheff Luis came to say high and we share our opinions, with a miro in our backs and seems like a Dali is around too this place combines everything you look for a special night.
Ahhh!!! Red Sangria is the cocktail to start; however, their gin tonics list looks tempting.

Was there with my brother and wife for our anniversary dinner. Her lamb chops were outstanding. His chateaubriand with foie gras was great. I thought my duck breast was a little past the medium rare I asked for. C'est la vie. Service was excellent.

All I have to say is WOW!!!! Job well done times 10. Jesus was just impeccable. He chose the wine for us and hit it out of the park. He truly made our anniversary just phenomenal. He guided us on the menu and was so knowledgeable. He was amazing!
The atmosphere, the service, the hospitality, the food, the wine EVERYTHING!!!! Just pure perfection. Paco came to our table and showed us his art pieces... I was just very impressed with him and him making us feel like we were a guest in his home.
My husband and I enjoy fine dining and we are thoroughly pleased with how our evening turned out. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for going above and beyond to make our evening special and unforgettable.
The food is simply amazing. The foie gras is out of this world. My husband said that would be his last meal if he had to chose.... lol
They have truly created a restaurant that makes the guests feel right at home from every detail chosen.
Excellent. Excellent. Excellent.
INCREDIBLE!!!!! I highly recommend this restaurant! You will not be disappointed!

The food was very good and the service was exceptional. It was like being in Spain at a 5 star restaurant. This food will not appeal to everyone, but it will appeal to most foodies. The appetizers and the desert would be hard to beat anywhere. My wife said it was one of the best meals she has had in years. We will definitely return when we get back to Houston.

We celebrated Halloween with BCN and had a delightful evening. We had not made arrangements in advance for a tasting menu, but they made it available anyway. The food was absolutely first rate, authentic Spanish with some special touches, and the wine pairings were sensational. The service was impeccable and the ambiance perfect. It all made for a truly wonderful evening. We will be back.

Our first experience at BCN was as close to immaculate as a restaurant could get. Jesus was superb, cocktails were aromatically tasty and the food channeled home. I’ve NEVER had a restaurant give us the opportunity to try a spoonful of a dish before committing and every recommendation made was spot on. The atmosphere was just what we were looking for. Make your reservation early. I’ll be back before the end of the year.

In my opinion BCN is the overall best restaurant in Houston. Truly authentic Spanish food, with the best quality ingredients, professional, friendly service, in a quaint environment. I've never had a meal I didn't love here. It's wonderful for a romantic dinner or a business meal or dining at the bar. I can't say enough about BCN. Truly the best.
