Barraca Ratings and Reviews
We just went with tapas and Spanish beer and had a really nice meal at a fair price. The croquetas, bravas, pan con tomato, jamon Serrano and bocaditos de calamares were all eagerly devoured by our group of four. Service was very accommodating and friendly. Definitely worth another return visit! Popular and deservedly so!
Very nice ambiance, nice music and not too loud.
We sat at the bar where we were taken care of by Lucas! He was amazing! His vibe, energy and personality was everything. Very personable and genuine.
Rioja sangrias were the best!
We had appetizers at the bar
We had papas Bravas that were great and the Gambas al ajillo (shrimp in garlic and olive oil sauce) which was amazing! So good we ordered a second one!
Churros rellenos with tres leches sauce and Nutella and a side of salted caramel icecream yum!
The food here is not impressive at all. There are far better Spanish tapas bars in NYC with tastier options. That being said, I would not recommend this place at all. The food wasn’t good (except for the tortilla Española and the croquettes) and the mediocre atmosphere wasn’t anything to call home about.
We chose Barraca at random...food was subpar, I was shocked that the shrimp in garlic & oil were no bigger than the size of a quarter - the garlic was burnt and unenjoyable and the whole time the dish was on our table it smelled of cheap EVOO. We ordered the Manchego cheese board and Bombas which were delicious but you can’t really mess up a ball of potato filled with meat...
The service was great, our waiter was kind and attentive and the manager (assuming b/c he was in a suit) checked on us periodically and folded my boyfriends napkin when he went to use the restroom. The atmosphere is pretty chill w/ dim lighting like most nyc restaurants.
Unfortunately we weren’t ‘wowed’ and won’t be returning.
The restaurant was good. At first when you walk in, it looks pretty small but it is really big on the inside. The food was good but I've eaten better tapas. I was disappointed with the service because we mentioned to the server right in the beginning that we do not eat ham or beef due to religious reasons and he recommended the Branzino to us. Since the ambience is pretty dark, we could not see what was with the fish. There was ham stuffed inside the fish. The moment I took a bite, I realized what he had served us. When we told him about it, he just said sorry. He didn't even check with us if we want something else instead of that. Also, the guy who served us water was totally high. He poured the water completely out of the glass and walked off like nothing had happened. The entire table was dripping. We called him back to clean it and he just shrugged and cleaned it. No apology. The restaurant was good, the food was good too but the service was bad.
I was surprised to find this really good tapas place. They have several sangrias, and my favorite was the Valencia. They have good tapas selection and several paella options as well. Everything we ordered was good! Will definitely be coming back here with my friends.
Our party of three had paella for two and three tapas, and both the paella and the tapas were absolutely delicious. If you have a play or a gig at the Vanguard to make, the service is perfect--the tapas come out pretty quickly and the paella half an hour later.
liven the neighborhood, so love that I decided to eat here with a friend. The happy hour price for tapas was a lovely surprise. The food was excellent. Tapas are such a wonderful way for friends toe at to gather and have wonderful conversations. The noise level was acceptable for conversation. Hope that it doesn't become louder for dinner.
Transported right to Spain...
We had dinner recently at Barraca and had a wonderful evening. The location is in the heart of our favorite part of NYC, (West Village) and felt like we were out of the country that night in a cozy charming restaurant. The food was the most authentic tapas I have had in NYC (be sure and get the Pulpo a la Plancha) and they had a nice selection of artisan created sangrias which were so yummy! The service was stellar and we felt well taken care of by our waiter Angel. Looking forward to going back again soon.
Nice meal with not exceptional, but above average food; service and experience was again very good but fell short of NY finest. I thought the cadence of tapas was a bit quick. The lighting and noise level were perfect and the servers thorough and thoughtful.
Maybe it was particular to the table we were taken to, but the AC was ultra cold in the back. We kept asking to adjust it but it'd then get turned back up in a second. As a result, one of my guests ended up waking up with a cold the next morning. It really distracted from the food, which was "probably" good. The noise level was loud but we could maintain conversation so it was ok. The staff were very nice but the service was pretty spotty. It took 23 minutes for us to get a check from the moment we asked for it. The waiter never came back after the main dish (paella) to clean our table or ask to see if we wanted coffee or dessert. We had to flag down who was probably the owner to ask for coffee to warm our frozen hands.
Had a great Bachelorette dinner this weekend with friends. The service was prompt. The tapas and sangria selection were delicious. We even got a free round of drinks.
For tapas- we had the charcuterie platter, garlic shrimp, bombas, croquettes and shishito peppers. Everyone was happy!
The restaurant is really rustic with sensational food superior tasting food and lively hospitality. My friend and I were there for lunch and was really quiet which allowed us to have a conversation without the challenge of trying to overcome any restaurant noises. Really enjoyable. Louis, the manager was personable, informed and overall made our visit memorable.
This is a great, fun tapas spot - but the mains are great too. Their sangria bar is as potent as it is delicious, with most offerings being liquor and wine mixes. You can also do bottomless pick-and-mix sangria. I was here for Sunday brunch and sat outside, which was lovely.
