Great Food, but Loud

Great Food, good service but the restaurant was acoustically challenged. It's quite a scene, good bar for a white collared happy hour. The food like I said was very good, I liked that is tapas so you get to try a wide variety of things.

Went for the first time for Happy Hour. We will be returning for sure. Despite the other reviews, guess because we were there early, the restaurant was nice and quiet. They had a nice Happy Hour food menu and the drink menu was great too. The prices were super reasonable and our waiter and wait staff were super friendly and... More

Barcelona serves up great tapas and dishes to share and they have a phenomenal wine selection together with some exciting cocktails! The music is always good and the atmosphere is always enjoyable for a good date or later in the evening to meet and mingle! Barcelona is a personal favorite for me because five years ago I met the girl... More

We recently had a large family celebration at Barcelona Wine Bar in Greenwich, Connecticut, and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. I say that as we were offered a "party menu" , which in my opinion is rarely any good. For $45 per person, we were given a variety of 8 tapas as well as paella and... More

Food is good but noisy. Can't go there if you are with a crowd and want to talk. Entertainment and a DJ certain evenings and bustling bar.

Barcelona is a great restaurant to go as a couple or with a group. You can share many tapas dishes and order a pitcher of Sangria as well. We tried pickled beet salad a little too much vinegar on it, wasn't my favorite. We also had chorizo and figs, short ribs special, ricotta gnocchi and fried cheese, all were excellent.... More

This was our first time visit to Barcelona, and the restaurant I might say is very cousy. The menu has a wide range of options and we tried several of them. Being from Barcelona, I knew I would not be fair to compare against my hometown, but I did not need to. I was impressed by some of the dishes,... More

Good Afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to write such kind words about us. I apologize for the volume level of our guitarist. I have already spoken to him about the issue. If we are able to seat it, we also have our private room which is much quieter. I hope to meet on your next visit. Happy Holidays,... More

We visited Barcelona in Greenwich with another couple on a Saturday night recently. The selection of tapas was outstanding and all those that we had were delicious. The list of wines by the glass was extensive and reasonably priced. Despite the fact that the restaurant was full, the service was fast as well as very friendly and helpful. However the... More
