All I have to say is WOW!!!! Job well done times 10. Jesus was just impeccable. He chose the wine for us and hit it out of the park. He truly made our anniversary just phenomenal. He guided us on the menu and was so knowledgeable. He was amazing!
The atmosphere, the service, the hospitality, the food, the wine EVERYTHING!!!! Just pure perfection. Paco came to our table and showed us his art pieces... I was just very impressed with him and him making us feel like we were a guest in his home.
My husband and I enjoy fine dining and we are thoroughly pleased with how our evening turned out. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for going above and beyond to make our evening special and unforgettable.
The food is simply amazing. The foie gras is out of this world. My husband said that would be his last meal if he had to chose.... lol
They have truly created a restaurant that makes the guests feel right at home from every detail chosen.
Excellent. Excellent. Excellent.
INCREDIBLE!!!!! I highly recommend this restaurant! You will not be disappointed!

The food was very good and the service was exceptional. It was like being in Spain at a 5 star restaurant. This food will not appeal to everyone, but it will appeal to most foodies. The appetizers and the desert would be hard to beat anywhere. My wife said it was one of the best meals she has had in years. We will definitely return when we get back to Houston.

We celebrated Halloween with BCN and had a delightful evening. We had not made arrangements in advance for a tasting menu, but they made it available anyway. The food was absolutely first rate, authentic Spanish with some special touches, and the wine pairings were sensational. The service was impeccable and the ambiance perfect. It all made for a truly wonderful evening. We will be back.

Our first experience at BCN was as close to immaculate as a restaurant could get. Jesus was superb, cocktails were aromatically tasty and the food channeled home. I’ve NEVER had a restaurant give us the opportunity to try a spoonful of a dish before committing and every recommendation made was spot on. The atmosphere was just what we were looking for. Make your reservation early. I’ll be back before the end of the year.

In my opinion BCN is the overall best restaurant in Houston. Truly authentic Spanish food, with the best quality ingredients, professional, friendly service, in a quaint environment. I've never had a meal I didn't love here. It's wonderful for a romantic dinner or a business meal or dining at the bar. I can't say enough about BCN. Truly the best.

Our whole experience at BCN was wonderful. We were a little late for our reservation after having driven through 3 hours of torrential rain and then stopping to pick up my daughter from her college dorm. We were warmly greeted and immediately seated. Every need and request was attended to promptly. The waitstaff was extremely helpful with excellent recommendations for cocktails, menu selections, and wine (the wine list is exclusively Spanish with some offerings that were unfamiliar to me). The food was exceptional - among the best I have ever experienced. The restaurant is very warm and inviting.

Everything was top notch- beginning with unique setting inside an old house. Lighting at this place is perfect-ambient, soft, and non-intrusive. The menu is so diverse and appealing, I wanted one of everything listed there. And food was so tasty that I am planning a definite come back. Totally fit for foodies, great for a celebratory dinner, or a date. Overall feel is sophisticated yet exceptionally friendly and not stuffy. Just wonderful.

This place never disappoints. The service is always great starting with the valet and continuing with the waiter (Jerry in this case) and the Sommelier. The bread is one of the best in Houston and US; came out steaming with soft interior and a crust that crackled when broken. The olives are the best I've ever had in the US; tastes like Spain. The Iberico de Ballota Jamon is simply the best tapa that there is. I hate to say that the daily special, lobster salad and pork ravioli appetizers, were a bit lack-luster; both lacked flavor. Nevertheless the overall experience was great. The steak is the best in Houston. The fish entrees are always good. The Spanish wine list is relatively short (compared to some book-size lists in Houston) but concentrated with good choices that span from quite affordable ($70) to good-for-special-occasions and for impressing business guests ($200-$400), without extending to the ridiculous. I especially love the choices from the Priorat region. I had two glasses for $12 each that were by far, the best $12 glass of wine I have ever had. (Note to owner: Please do not jack up the prices, because this good deal is part of the attraction of your restaurant). While we did not have them, they offer some specialty drinks (Gin-Tonics, etc.) that include the most beautiful ice cubes that you have ever seen; perfectly cubic and clear as glass. Overall this restaurant does practically everything right. The atmosphere is nice, sound level is good for conversation, the food is among the best in Houston.

BCN is our go-to date night spot for tapas, sangria and G&Ts. It’s also where we take all our out of town guests, celebrate special occasions and recommend to friends. The food and service is always impeccable. Great menu options and amazing off-menu selections. Not an inexpensive evening, but definitely worth it every time.

This is, quite simply, the best restaurant in Houston; and has been for some time.

The food is amazing (you must try the suckling pig at least once), the decor warm and unique and the service impeccable.

I would go there weekly if i could restrain myself and not over order every time.

We came my for husband’s bday since we were there once before and really liked it.
This time I liked it a little less. The food (main dish)was just ok,I just should have not got what waiter was pushing so much(lamb chops).My husband got suckling pig which he liked but both dishes being almost $60 each i expected more. Just didn’t like waiter suggesting the most expensive dishes including the special appetizer without telling the price and it’s not even being good. The only things I really liked were sangrias,both white and red.in conclusion it’s a pretty place for a special occasion but I doubt I will be back,can find some better spots when spending over $200.
