B44 Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been here from business meetings to friends’ get togethers, it’s always been super wonderful. The food is really amazing, I usually get the rack of lamb with a glass of Tempranillo. If you have room left over for dessert, try the chocolate option. Always book ahead if you can!
We chose B44 for the New Year’s Eve dinner because we are from Madrid, and as we were away from Spain we wanted to have a home made dinner. The place is alright, ambience is not bad, but the music was awful taking into account that it’s a Catalan/Spanish bistro, they could’ve played some rumba, flamenco or other typical Spanish music. Service was normal, not bad but not good either. Menu is short for all the wonders of the Spanish cuisine. The worst part of the restaurant is the food. We ordered a tabla de embutidos and one of cheese, as there wasn’t one with both (what is wrong with these people?), and they served 2 slices of jamon, 2 of chorizo and 2 of lomo with 3 pieces of cheese; the embutido was average turning to bad, as the one you can find at the supermarket in Spain for 1€ the package. This costed 35$ for 6 slices of embutido and 3 of cheese, wow. Then the bravas weren’t bad, salsa brava was ok, but it was a small bowl, lets say a fourth of what you’d get in Spain; for the price they charge they could’ve served something decent. Then the paella hortelana we asked for doesn’t even deserve to be called paella. Size wasn’t that horrible,1/4 or half of what you get in Spain, but the taste was awful, undercooked, unmatching ingredients and no taste at all; even my 15 y/o brother can cook a better paella at home than that. We ordered some Catalan tinto as well, which was not good. This is not a butthurt comment, it’s just that the food was pretty bad, and the sizes were ridiculous. At their prices they should be cooking some decent food, and the image they give of Spanish and Catalan cuisine is pretty bad. This restaurant in Spain wouldn’t last open not even for 3 months, and I know what I’m talking about as my family has a restaurant in Madrid. As a Spanish, I wouldn’t eat here ever again, and as someone who wants to taste Spanish cuisine, choose this place if you want to get overpriced bad try to be Spanish food. If not find a better Spanish restaurant.
B44 is on the charming Belden alley and is nice enough inside. The food seems like tapas you'd get 20 years ago. Nothing really new or innovative about the food. The service was attentive but not extremely helpful with the menu. But man, oh man, it is almost UNBEARABLY LOUD. If you plan on having a conversation with your dinner partners, this is not the place.
This restaurant disappointed me. Came with a couple friends. Way to loud inside. Although we were sitting in a back corner we had to shout throughout the entire meal to hear it other. In addition food service was so slow. The charcuterie plate took almost one hour to arrive. When we questioned the server as to why we had not received it his answer was that the kitchen was busy with the larger parties in the place. Unacceptable! We were done with our meal by the time that plate arrived. Couldn't wait to leave.
B44 was AMAZING! I'd read the glowing reviews and didn't expect the place to live up to them, but it did and more. Everyone there was extremely warm and welcoming and the service was great. The food was FANTASTIC!! My boys and I went to Spain for Spring Break earlier this year and sought out the highest rated restaurants eating lots and lots of amazing Spanish food. B44 was as good as any place we ate in Spain and that is a very high bar. I definitely recommend B44 to everyone.
We enjoyed the dinner: beet salad, garlic shrimp, lamb skewers, coldcuts and b44 payella all were excellent. About $160 for 2 adults and a kid, incl drinks and deserts - seem quite reasonable.
We came a night before thanksgiving and the place had very few diners, not that lively. Otherwise we loved the setting, and the location.
Our waiter always seemed to be in a rush. He didn't really ask how it was going or ask if it was a special occasion - which it was my birthday. I lived in Barcelona and have had authentic Catalan food. For being in the US it was pretty good, especially the Octopus and patatas bravas. The canelones were not very good, paella was alright, a bit salty for me.
Way overpriced, as is typical for tapas which often means less food more price. Even my girl left hungry and we dropped $150 on a simple meal for two. Too bad because the food is very tasty, the atmosphere is cool, and the wait staff are excellent. Just too hard to justify that kind of money when I'm not getting a big fat slab of prime beef, in contrast.
I've been dining at B44 for several occasions. The food is good and the atmosphere is very good so that I take my friends visiting San Francisco. At this particular visit, the service was bad – if you say it existed. We did not get anything other than water and menu more than 30 hour, nobody came to take orders. The restaurant was not that busy. Once food started arrive, because they were really good, everyone became happy. I was very much embarrassed for recommending this place to friends except for the quality of food.
The ambiance was great and the menu was extensive - but I was disappointed by the quality/value. For example we ordered the Catalan salad which was listed as having chorizo, and only got one slice of chorizo in it....Just kind of sloppy. But the food was decent and it was a fun place for a weeknight meal!
