Enjoyed our meal. We did a restaurant week pre fixed meal and the meat and cheese board was awesome. The unlimited hour and a half sangria for $15 was so worth It. So many different sangrias and they weren’t too sweet at all. The churros was a perfect ending.

Use larger plates/bowls to serve food. Was difficult at times keep food on plate/bowl while eating because so much food on plate/in bowl.

The Restaurant Week tasting menu was quite good, though the paella was a little disappointing. The sangrias were ok, a little on the weak side. The service and ambience were fantastic, though. Definitely a good spot for some relaxed dining.

Overall, Barraca is okay. It's clearly a popular brunch spot, but what you often find in New York is you either get unlimited brunch drinks or good food. There were a few things that we ordered that had tasty elements, however, the service we received was pretty sub-par. Halfway through the meal I reminded the waitress about a tapas I ordered and she claimed I never ordered it although she was sure to put it on the bill, which I had to prompt her to correct. The sangrias aren't that flavorful, but that's not too surprising considering they are most likely making them on the spot versus allowing them to steep the way actual sangria is made. The unlimited brunch with our entrees, desserts etc came out to about $50 per person with tip. Not terrible, but after almost 6 sangrias I was far from drunk and while I was full I can't say the food hit the spot. Go, or don't go, you're not really missing out.

I wanted to come here for restaurant week and my boyfriend and I have been craving paella. This place took forever to bring us our food and when we got it it was the worst paella ever. We sat in this awkward corner table. The server was also inattentive and awkward. Wouldn’t come back here

Monday I went here for restaurant week with a coworker. We sat outside in an effort to enjoy some Spanish food. The appetizers were great. Fresh meat and cheese plate with chorizo, another sausage, prosciutto (or it Spanish equivalent), grapes and toasted bread.

THEN the entree comes out (lobster paella). It's served in a cast iron skillet (nice touch) but the rice is mush and burned to the bottom with a ring of burned rice around the edge. Our server gave us some nonsense story that we had to stir it as soon as it came out. I've had paella at many places including a famous one in Tampa and that wasn't part of the experience at all. Most important, this ignored the fact that it was burnt already when brought out to us! In addition, the lobster was in shell and we had to extract it ourselves while flies eagerly visited us. As part of the paella burning process, the kitchen heated the lobster to temperature that ruled out holding the claw with bare hands and literally baked the meat to the shell inside the claw. Pulling it out with a fork was impossible. It had to be scraped out and we gave up eventually. As I discovered this, the burned paella got cold. Add to this the over cooked vegetables and this paella was pure crap.

My suspicion is that they prepare the cast iron pans with paella well beforehand and heat them up in the oven without much care or simple stirring when it is ordered. Lazy cooking.

So to sum up, the uncooked food is good, cooked food is terrible. Servers were great until they tried telling me I was responsible for their lousy paella. Own your mistakes and fix them. That shows far more character.

Our first time at Baracca and a very pleasant one. Quite a popular place for the young and the middle aged.

We shared the shrimp, calamari, shishito peppers, meatballs and olives. All were great, but the seafood was our most favorite. Our server Franciso was great.

We had been to Hectoe Sanz's other restaurants Rayuela and Macondo East and clearly he is continuing to serve great food in a great atmosphere. We will be back.

I made a reservation online indicating I would be using my $100 Open Table gift card. This was a birthday celebration and I called ahead to see if we could get a table for six outside. I was told that there were no large tables outside so I put in a request for a table near the window. When we arrived for our reservation, the hostess went to put us at a basement table. When I asked if we could sit at one of the free large tables up front near the windows the hostess said they were all reserved and we could sit either in the back or downstairs (not sure if this had to do with us using a giftcard). Not only was the hostess rude and condescending, but the large tables up front were still empty when we were finished with dinner. The food was delicious and the servers attentive but I certainly have hesitations about coming back again since our interaction with the hostess was so upsetting.

The tapas were perfect especially the Pulpo - very tender. The seafood in the Paella however was grossly overcooked, everything except the fish.

The food could have been a lot better. I left with the recurring taste of charred sprouts and overly salty lamb (I add extra salt to everything by the way, so the chef must have been very heavy handed with this one). Sadly, not the best tapas experience...

I was there Sunday afternoon with my friends having brunch , at first it look like a nice places until I see the chef coming to the bar with a dirty apron and start coursing to the staff. The food was ok nothing crazy . The worse part was going to the ladies room “ Pennstation bathroom is cleaner” , toilet seat on the floor and paper towel all over . Overall good service but I will never come back .

I always love Barraca. The food is great and the price for unlimited sangria is very reasonable, and there are so many flavors to choose from that even with the unlimited you can't get through them all in one sitting.

Everything was great; the food was very tasty and the service was very friendly and prompt. The only issue was that even though the restaurant was almost entirely empty when two out of three of us arrived, they wouldn't seat us until the third person showed up. With a full set of open tables, that seemed liked a foolishly strict policy.

I was meeting my cousin from out of town for brunch and Barraca came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. We had a variety of huevos and tapas. The chorizo was outstanding!! We also indulged in the bottomless sangria- at $15 the value is well worth it, and you can switch up the sangrias as you go.
I would say the only downfall is we got there early 11:30) and although the inside was empty the music was deafening. It was hard to speak at the table - a little much for 11:30. Even so, we will go again for sure!!

Overall my friend and I had a great experience. We used their happy hour menu and ordered several tapas and sangria and then finished with churros for dessert. Their sangria was the best that I’ve had. My only qualm is that happy hour is advertised on their website (and on their sign outside their restaurant for that matter) to be 4-7. we initially made reservations at 4 but when we arrived we were told that the restaurant doesn’t open until 5. I’m not sure if this is a new time they are implementing but they should update their website and sign if that’s the case.

We booked a table for 8 at 6:30 hoping to get a drink at happy hour, I picked a tapas place as not all of us cld get there by 6:30. I thought it would be more casual venue for moms that had different timings. Wouldn’t seat up until a majority were there. Not at four people, not at 5. Asked us to wait until 6 people were there. I said fine, we want a table for 7. Then they seated us. In total, we had 9 people come. A couple came early but left early, some later and stayed late. I think it’s ridiculous they made us wait on the sidewalk instead of letting us come in a get a drink.

1 member of our reservation of 4 was stuck in traffic and was very late. However, we didn't lose our table and were seated in the downstairs area of the restaurant that we never even knew existed. We were next to several large parties and in turn, were overlooked and forgotten. We came for brunch and opted for the bottomless sangrias, but we waited long periods of time between drinks and sometimes were even served the wrong kind of sangria. In all fairness, our waiter was basically covering the downstairs area by himself for most of the time but we just kept watching other tables get served first. When our food finally came, it was overcooked and not very good. The waiters didn't come to check on us after we got our food and it was a bit frustrating.
