Restaurant is closed for renovations!
We had a wonderful meal in Barraca - our last night of our holiday in New York. We are frequent visitors to Spain, and are lucky to have a number of excellent tapas restaurants near where we live in London. Barraca’s tapas were OUTSTANDING - some of the best I have ever had. The restaurant has excellent ambiance and is well worth a visit and frankly not to be missed.
It was good but did not enjoy the downstairs area
great for happy hours as well!
Delicious food and excellent service , thank you for a "touch of Spain"
Wonderful paella and attentive staff. Would definitely go back.
The service here was not the best - servers were not attentive and awkward. Had to ask four times for salt and hot sauce. They were quick to rush us out of the restaurant, although not accommodating to splitting the bill. The temperature in the restaurant was also very off. It was constantly either very hot or very cold.
our server and food was wonderful but both hostesses were very rude and unprofessional
Although staff was helpful in changing our seats, options for quiet conversation are few. Menu is somewhat limited based on our experience of tapas restaurants and the quality is uneven. Seasoning and ingredient combinations often seemed to be conflicting and harsh. We have also had paella on a previous visit and it just doesn’t meet a standard beyond average so the price is not worth it to us. We won’t visit again. Sorry.
Authentic, delicious food. I cannot wait to go back and try more of the tapas and paella. Loved the experience!
In love with their sangrias and very good attention
Wished we could have stayed longer but had to get to a show. They met our timetable and the food was great. Nice diversity. Good wine options. Would gladly do it again.
Loves the music and ambiance
The restaurant is PERMANENTLY CLOSED! Not sure why Opentable accepts and confirms the reservations. I came all the way from NJ just to face the closed doors!
Creo que es uno de los mejores lugares que he visitado, la atención fue excelente !
Amazing food and great, lively atmosphere. Will definitely be bringing friends back!
Barraca shares a kitchen with Macondo, and seemingly table space as well. We arrived before our reservation on a busy Friday night, so while I was glad to be seated promptly, I didn't realize at first that we had been brought through to the other restaurant, until we were brought Macondo menus. After some initial confusion, they did bring us the Barraca menu, and we were able to order from that. The food was very good, especially the mussels, the sangria was delicious and our server was personable. But the music was unbearably loud, the table was sticky and gross, and the chairs were extremely uncomfortable. We might go back to see what it's like to actually eat at Barraca, but we're in no rush.
The food tasted awful. The cold meats were very vinegary, the octopus came out luke warm, too much mayo/aioli on the tortilla. Its a lively place and a great location but the food was just reLly bad the night we went
Food was great but service was horrible. Took over an hour to receive a dish, even after prompting the waiter and front desk staff. They did give us the item for free and a round of drinks but will not return. Ruined the evening.
had a fantastic time at Barraca - great ambiance and delicious food. now i also know they do private events and can handle big tables so that's great to know for future parties!
one downside - only one restroom was available (the other one was out of service), and the lock did not work. hopefully they will fix the lock issue.
We took entire family here for morning after our wedding reception. We had great meal and was with the people we love most. Food was tasty and filling and sangria selection is amazing.
It was good. The service was super disjointed... 6-7 people waited on us and we waited 20 minutes for coffee. We got there upon opening. Not many people there. Seems like Service should have been better
Great selection of Sangriaand Tapas for Happy Hour. Would definitely go back.
I've been to Barraca several times and this was by far the worst experience ever, I've been primarily for brunch in the past and the service was always lacking, but I excused it because it's a busy bottomless brunch. My recent visit was for dinner and the service was horrible - had to share a menu with my boyfriend, missing food items, waiter was not attentive and disappeared for a long time, overall not a great experience and it tainted the taste of the food because we were put off before we got our meal.
Had the special of the lobster paella for 30$ a person. It tasted wonderful. Service was readily available. My only wish is that I wish they had more kinds of beers!
worst paella I've ever eaten. extremely overpriced. not worth it at all.
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.
Good ambience, but very loud.
Paloma was our server and very friendly.
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
Service was horrendous. I won’t go back
Awesome! Food came on time, waiter was pleasant & attentive.
Suggested Wine pairing was great. Will definitely return
Amazing restaurant week menu. Highly recommend the mussels and the roasted chicken.
The food was so yummy. We just got back from Spain and thought that it would be fun to eat tapas would be fun. A bit loud but everything else was fabulous
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.
