Absolutely amazing. This was our first time to get the tasting menu and my only regret was that we didn’t do the tasting on previous visits. Amazing food at every course paired perfectly. Icing on the cake for what had already been a great anniversary.

Just a perfect evening. Great food, great wine selection, tremendous service and atmosphere. There has been absolutely no drop-off whatsoever in the BCN experience while they have managed to create an environment in which we felt extremely safe. Best patatas bravas on planet earth. Really fantastic care and suggestions by our waitress as well- with new favorites for wine and dessert for future meals. Will be back again soon...

Food was excellent even though the brazino and lamb could have used a little less salt. The service is amazing and outstanding. I love their gin and tonic cocktails. Very nice Spanish wine list. We are making it a tradition to go there for my husband's birthday. Definitely recommend it for a special occasion.

BCN has been on my list of Houston restaurants to try, and I can finally checked it off the list yesterday!

The restaurant had a cozy feeling and displays of Picasso's original artworks throughout the establishment. The building was a bit old, so you could see some tear here and there, but that added to its charm though. The service was pretty great, with the head waiter walking through the drink and food recommendations and the rest of the waitstaff working to ensure a great experience for diners.

I was able to try the Lavender Gin & tonic per recommendation, and it was definitely a worthy drink with great presentation! It tasted quite refreshing.

For the food, my date and I decided to go with the Tasting menu to sample some of the best dishes the restaurants had to offer. I sure expected a *WOW* factor for the experience, as Tasting menu usually displays the chef's skills and innovation. But overall, I think the supposedly stars of the Tasting menu (Suckling pig and grilled branzino) were disappointing; and most of the dishes in the Tasting Menu had a factor that prevented me from having a *WOW* moment. That left the experience much room for desire.

Additionally, we had to flag the waitstaff down twice to change dirty napkin and silverware. You would think the hygiene would be better here.

We sat outside and it was beautiful. The weather was perfect. Our waiter was outstanding. He was available as needed but let us take our time and enjoy the evening. We did not feel rushed. The food was delicious! You can't beat their gin and tonic -- yum. We also had a bottle of wine and it, too, was perfect. I highly recommend BCN and I especially like sitting outside.

I never heard or knew of this place but I wanted to try something different for an adversary. All the servers were eager to please and the place was relaxing and nice for a romantic dinner. The Spanish food is really good we follow our waitress recommendation also for the cocktails. They gave us a complementary dessert for our anniversary (Nice touch).
Food is on the pricey side but completely understandable based on the quality of the place. We will definitely go there again.

Everything at BCN was fantastic! From the greeting at the valet to the service at the table, we couldn't have felt more welcome. The octopus was some of the best we have ever had - super tender and perfectly matched with the potato. The rack of lamb was perfectly cooked and full of flavor. Desserts were also very tasty and the wine list was well selected and reasonably priced. We will definitely be back again.

Another superb meal at BCN! We began with an amuse-bouche of salmon crudo, followed by ham croquettes, jamon iberico, and the deconstructed patatas bravas. Over a bottle of Abadia Retuerta "Sardon del Duero" my guests and I had quail stuffed with foie gras, bomba rice in cuttlefish ink and a fideua of seafood. The service was attentive and impeccable. We'll definitely be coming back many times more.

Had a wonderful dinner for my husband’s birthday. We did the tasting menu with the wine pairings. Every course was delicious as well as visually beautiful.
Our waiter was readily available and informative on the wine regions of the pairings.
It was a pricy evening but well worth it!

Chose BCN for it's Spanish menu and good reviews. We were seated upstairs, appeared regular patrons were seated downstairs. Our waiter was very attentive, and we ordered the house specials. We very much liked the grilled branzino. Thanks to our wonderful waiter for helping make our wedding anniversary memorable.

One of our favorites in Houston and the flavors never cease to amaze us. Dinning outside was romantic and noise free. Very cool when chef Rogers came by to see how we were doing, share some of his techniques and discuss his latest resturaunt MAD. Can't wait to go back.
