I booked on Open Table and thought that I was booking at a restaurant that I had been to in October 2017. When we walked in I asked, “Have you changed the decor since last October?” The hostess looked at me oddly and then when my husband and I sat down at the bar, I realized that I was at Barraca and not my original choice. Boy, were we lucky. We were bringing a group of younger friends to celebrate the sola exhibit of one of the guests who is a photographer. Every single thing that we tasted was excellent, and the servers were totally attentive. In addition, even through we had 2 of everything that we ordered plus desserts and drinks, our bill averaged about $60/person. For the quantity of food, the ambiance and the service, it seemed almost like a bargain. Anytime that I am in NYC again with a small group, I will definitely book at Barraca. One especially nice thing was that the hostess gave us a seat in the lower dining room in what was probably the quietest place in the noisy restaurant. That was especially thoughtful.
I love this place! I came here for a birthday brunch this past Saturday with 6 friends and we all had a great time! Our waitress Michelle was super attentive and always made sure our sangria glasses were full (they have a great bottomless sangria deal)! Will definitely be returning!
Delicious food, best sangria in the city.
Was REALLY hot in the basement dining area. Otherwise no complaints
The service was discombobulated from the start. The hostess confused our reservation which resulted in a delay in seating. After we finally sat down, it took forever for the waiter to come to the table and even longer for the food to arrive. Once it arrived, it was overwhelmingly disappointing. Both paella dishes were cold, soggy and lacked much flavor. Overall, it was a horrible experience and not worth the time.
I was super excited to come to Barraca for happy hour and tapas after work. The place was super cute and the staff was friendly. To be honest, the food was not great.. it was mediocre. I was looking forward to it all week because the menu looked great..but the tapas were subpar.. the only tapa that was really good was the dates wrapped in bacon. Cute place to go for drinks and happy hour special.. but don't expect much from the food..
Love this place!
The food was great. The sangria was weak. Stick to wine, preferably red with Spanish food. The music was too loud. The service was great.
Everything else is awesome but please clean the bathroom and have toilet sits
I’ve been coming here for years, and tonight was by far my worst dining experience. The paella was bland, totally unseasoned, and the service didn’t do much to make up for it. I doubt I’ll be returning anytime soon, if ever.
Excellent attentive service. Ordered several of the happy hour tapas specials and they were all good! Sangria was also tasty!
Barraca is the best place to bring friends who like a fun atmosphere! Tapas are life!
The food was good the waitress was fantastic the only thing was we make reservation and they try seat us in the lower floor super dark and no appealing look went they have tables upstair i complain so they seat us in firs floor and they were empty tables all the time we were there when i ask the hosts she was super rude and say they were reserve
i guess they didn't show up more the 10 tables in different parts of the room
The food was good, though it was quite loud. The staff was great and friendly.
Food was good service was good. But to be honest I was very taken aback when asked to increase my tip. I had calculated 18% on the amount , not including tax, but a waiter came to the table to ask for more tip money. Very unprofessional. I obliged but would never return nor recommend.
We tried to order three different desserts and we were told they were out of each of them, one at a time, and then a fourth dessert (the last resort) was basically forced upon us. It is wildly overpriced, although the paella portions are definitely sizable. The sangria was very good. Food was good overall. We basically got kicked out very rudely right before 11 PM even though it says they are open until 12 AM on all weekdays on Google (we went on a Wednesday).
Excellent meal. My 4th time here and always leave impressed!
Service was very good and attentive, though food was slow to come out from kitchen.
Probably some backup with food order, that would also explain the overcooked fried or poached eggs.
On the price side, 14$ for a slice of tasted bread with avocado spread, some salad, 2 cherry tomatoes and a single (overcooked) poached egg is a little pricy, compared to other items in the same menu.
Don’t let them take you to the downstairs dungeon, it’s terrible, horrible room full of huge parties. Bathroom was disgusting. Food and service good
I was very disappointed with the service at Barraca. It's been on my list forever to try, and I will not be returning. I asked to add 1 to our party, and they refused, claiming they were OUT of tables/chairs and were even borrowing from sister restaurants. When we arrived, the place was EMPTY. The poor service continued throughout the evening and the staff was barely attentive.
I love this place and have been here before. The food is amazing. I was a little disappointed this time, though, because they rushed us and then try to kick us out early towards the end of the meal. They said they were really busy. Regardless of whether they are busy, they should treat their customers with respect. When you're paying a lot of money for a nice meal, you'd hope that the service would be good and that they would allow you to time to enjoy it. My brother was visiting from states away, and I didn't appreciate them cutting our time together short. They should focus on making sure that every customer has a good experience, instead of trying to crank out as many customers as possible.
The paella was awesome and so were the drinks. They only problem was the service. It took us almost 30 minutes to get our drinks we ordered and 40 minutes to get our appetizer. We were sat at 850pm and didnt even get our main course till 10 pm.
Incredibly rude hostess!
I used to love Barraca. After this experience I am not going back. I asked for a table and after confirming that it was a party of two and indicating I had to order food I got seated outside and offered a drink. A couple minutes later the hostess came in and asked me to leave as my party had not arrived, my party was 5 steps away and there 10 seconds after. She still asked me to leave so that she could give the table to someone else.
Not only was I asked to leave, she was very rude and behaved as if I had done something wrong.
She claimed the restauran policy but if she made a mistake by giving me the table she needs to fix it herself.
Waited for half hour for reservation and then for An hour at the table before the appetizers arrived even though half of the tables were empty. Supposedly kitchen was “backed up”. Once the food arrived, it was good.
Very nice! Once they got super busy though service got slow. I highly suggest going early. We went at 12 and service started great but definitely dwindled after 115. Food was great, we didn’t get tapas and he open bar sangria selection - just entrees and were very satisfied.
Though the food was (mostly) good, I didn't appreciate that we were rushed out at the end. We had been there only about an hour; it's not as though we were overstaying our reservation or being rude to waiting guests. Tapas is traditionally a longer meal, with lots of courses and drinks, and it certainly put a damper on the experience to feel like once our check had hit a certain point they were fine telling us they needed the table (though we asked to order more).
Limited drink selection, unless you’re going there for the sangria. Tapas were good, but nothing spectacular that made it worth the high price point. Same goes for the paella.
Hostess told me to wait for my date but didnt offer seat at bar while waiting. Multiple servers, though considerate, kept asking us same questions which confused us as to whether our orders were going through or not. The bacon wrapped dates were great. Brussel sprouts were overseasoned and overcooked leaving half of it in a soggy, greasy mess at bottom of bowl. The paella’s seafood was overcooked while the rice itself is mediocre at best. My date’s sangria made her sick so she didn’t eat any of the food.
This place was lively and filled with people. It’s way bigger inside than it appears from the outside. It seemed like a happening place... however it was real loud. REAL loud. Regardless of where you were it seemed like people had to yell to speak to the person next to and across from them.
Now on to the food... Sangrias were watered down and the rest of the food left much to be desired. We did the 5 item meat and cheese plate. That was the best pet of our meal. The dates were ok and the mussels had no flavor to the broth... under salted. Additionally, we had the Negra Paella which lacked salt and the crispiness from the rice.
I wanted so much more for this place because it seemed like a cool place.
Great for brunch with very friendly and efficient service. I would recommend for a friends' get together meal.
I love Baracca and they are one of the *few* restaurants that honors their Happy Hour to patrons at the table not just in the bar.
The food and sangria are a steal $6 on Happy hour. We ate and drank until our heart's were content.
I highly recommend the Castillo Sangria and patatas bravas.
Service was amazing! We went because of National Paella Day and they had $1.00 dollar sangrias! We loved the Negra and Mariscos Paella. Delicious and would love to back again!
Even though I had made a reservation and there were empty tables, the hostess put us in the middle of the room where we felt in the way of EVERYBODY. I spotted an appropriate booth that was available in the back, and even though she looked unhappy and reticent about my request, she gave us the table. The restaurant should remove that small table for 2(or 3 if you want to overdo it) from the center of thenroom altogether. At the end of the day, we had tasty food and a great waiter, but I’m not inspired to return and would hesitate to recommend it. I would recommend Soccarat instead.
I love this place. I would go again and again :) Food and drinks are amazing
We went for paella night. The food, drinks and service were top notch.
Seated in a dank basement (it literally smelled) even though there was plenty of space upstairs. The servers barely paid attention to our table. The other tables had ordered the sangria pitchers so the servers were attending to them and barely noticed us. My patatas bravas were served without sauce. It took my friend physically going and tapping a server to fix this problem... And when he did, he took 15 minutes to bring the sauce. My food was half eaten and cold by then. The avocado toast was really some kind of processed avocado paste too. We ordered the churros for dessert and asked the waiter how many we should order... he recommended 2. they are TINY. The size of your pinky finger and swimming in a bowl of cream. not good.
all of the food was amazing and service was great!
Great tapas and wine, sangria and margaritas. The dates are out of this world. Try the paella as well.
Every time I go to Barraca, I think they could not impress me more. And every time I fall more and more in love with the place! It is such an underrated, lowkey yet very fun gem in the village. Definitely not yet that well-known which makes it the perfect secret spot to take your friends out to catch up! The sangrias are their specialty, as well as every single item in their menu (cheeses,charcuterie,TAPAS TO DIE FOR,AND DONT FORGET THE ICING ON THE CAKE STUFFED-CHURROS). The staff has always been very pleasant and welcoming, making it the perfect spot after a long, exhausting work day to relax with some drinks. The overall vibe from the decor, the comfortable booth seating, candlelight, and adorably sweet (and good-looking) waitstaff have me coming back almost every week. They should not change a thing (especially the amazing staff) who even sang for me on my birthday and got me a candle. Could not have asked for a better, more personal experience. They also now remember me since I've gone several times! Definitely must try the BACON-wrapped dates and the GAMBAS. For the ultimate experience, dip your bread in the tapas sauces! Just overall brilliant and my all-time favorite spot!
