Very nice dining experience

I met some friends who I had not seen in many years here last week, and we found it to be an extremely pleasant restaurant with good food, service and atmosphere. They had a nice special going that, for $20.15 (price matching the year 2015), you got an appetizer, main course entrée and dessert... read more

We were fortunate to visit during restaurant week so we enjoyed appetizers, a main course and dessert for one reasonable price. The venue is fairly small and we were seated despite not having reservations. From pasta to steak, nearly everyone in our party was satisfied. My husband ordered a rice and beans dish, mildly spiced, but it was still too... More

What a wonderful restaurant. I was seated on the rooftop. Such a beautiful place. Staff were excellent. Very helpful. I was there during restaurant week. The food was fantastic. Great selection of both food and drinks. Nice wine menu. A very pleasant experience. Will definitely go back.

This restaurant was suggested by a staff member at the hotel where we were staying. There was a wedding rehearsal / engagement party going on, but our food was served in a timely manner and the manager came by to see if everything was OK. The meal was the best dinner we had on a 10 day road trip through... More

After eating here several times and having many selections on the menu, I can safely say that the best part and what keeps me coming back is the atmosphere. The wine is great, the food is good, but the rooftop deck in the summer, as the sun in setting is just lovely. Of all of the menu options I have... More

We've been here several times in the past and always eat here when we come to the Capital District. There hasn't been anything we've tried that has disappointed us. The food is cooked and seasoned perfectly every time. The clams appetizer is to die for. Well worth visiting.

Had the fortune of dining at Barcelona Restaurant while overnight on business - the restaurant was a 2 min walk from my hotel on Western Ave and must say I've found the cuisine and staff excellent. They were entertaining a rehearsal dinner that evening so the only place (to our good fortune) was to eat at the bar. Gia the... More

A great lunch. I had not been here in may years. I am the food critic of a group of my friends and I am the only one that will usually have my meal not come, dropped on the floor or be just terrible. So it was a great surprise to have a very different menu and a great meal.... More

We decided to go to Barcelona Restaurant with friends of ours for our first time (they had eaten here once before). Got there a little early and realized they were also listed as a "wine bar" so we tried some wine at the bar. Good selection of wine, reasonably priced and many by the glass. The bartender was very nice,... More

I was in Barcelona on 05/02/15 in the evening. My goal was to try Seafood Paella. This meal was very tasty and it did not ruin my expectations. I tried before Paella on Caribbean vacation, therefore I had some understanding of this dish and I wanted to compare Barcelona's Paella with that in Caribbean. And I tell you, Barcelona's is...
