Service was great. Waitress was really attentive and super nice. Food was leaving something to be desired. Presentation was actually pretty good but lacked flavor. Ambiance was nothing like the photos we saw online. Basically just a few booths and tables in a bar room. Overall a little disappointed we drove over 40 miles and spent over $100 buck for this experience.

My 2nd visit to Barcelona Restaurant & lounge. The staff were very nice and the owner's daughter remembered me and was very friendly. She kept checking on us to ensure that we are happy with the food and service. The food is amazing. There Paella is the best that I ever tasted outside Spain. I also shared the Potato Brave with my husband and it was really good. The ambiance was quiet as it was lunch. Love the place.

Unfortunately, it was a bad experience, staff was short-handed and struggling to keep up with customers, since they had a private party of 25, and it looked like they were open at 100%. The host person was not friendly at all. His demeanor was more of a "bouncer" than host. The staff was friendly and was trying to accommodate, but they were overwhelmed. Food was just ok. We saw a couple of tables leaving. Music was way too loud. They end up giving us a discount for having to wait. To the owner of this restaurant - please take care of your business, if you want to be successful.

What a great experience. I went for my 10 year anniversary. Barcelona’s did everything possible to make it special-with rose petals on the table and champagne.
The service was good and the food was really good.

Walked in at 7:30p on a Friday night. It was a ghost town with only 2 other tables eating. The place turns into a night club after 10:30 so it definitely smells like a bar. The food looked good but only tasted so-so. Ex: The wagyu was over cooked and needed salt. Not sure how the night club is but the food side is only ok at best.

The food was excellent! Ours arrived a little cold; but the restaurant was short on wait staff due to folks calling in sick.

The manager asked about our experience, apologized and made things right.

Lights were extremely bright at 7pm which was slightly off putting but finally dimmed around 8ish. We ordered different tapas which - all brought out at the exact same time vs. spaced out. While our server was very nice, she got 1 of our drink orders wrong and completely forgot to place an order for 1 of our tapas items. My husband specifically asked if he could get a "side" house salad even tho it was not available/shown on the menu, but was told they could accomodate...I'm guessing our server didn't put in the order for a "small" salad as we were brought an entree sized house salad. By this point we didn't want to take a chance sending anything back. The house salad was your basic salad with vinaigrette, but somehow we think they may have accidentally dropped something super spicy in it as my husbands lips were red and on fire - he likes spicy but this made his salad inedible. Left a bit disappointed. The croquettes are extremely tasty tho!!

The waitstaff was very friendly. Our first time there and both waitstaff and chef, took the time to recommend entrees and appetizers. After the wonderful service, I hated to send back the qual for being overcooked.... the staff was gracious and apologetic, they not only took the qual off the bill, but prepared another qual for us to take home.
The DJ was FaNTASTIC!!! The mix of old and new was great.

The food was awesome. The bottomless Mimosas were wonderful. The server (sorry don't remember his name) but he was the only person working the front - was amazing. He was so nice and so accommodating. It's so difficult to find staff like him. Please take good care of him - he is one of the rare ones! We were there Sunday 1/3 for brunch.

We thoroughly enjoyed our night out at the Barcelona restaurant. Great food, excellent drinks (the bartender was AMAZING), and the DJ was a WIZARD! Our hostess and server were very nice, accommodating, and made very helpful suggestions on the menu. Magical night with great people. I strongly suggest you make a reservation tonight!
