Urbane, sophisticated and lively, Barcelona Greenwich is chic fun and delicious food. Opened in 2001, Barcelona Greenwich has been featured on ABC News as one of the New York area's "hot spots," and in Connecticut Magazine as a three-star dining experience. Polished service from engaging servers in the evening gives way to a lively bar scene in the late hours. Barcelona Greenwich has a 60-seat party room accented by high ceilings for your catered event, and a newly renovated bar and dining room.

Fun Place, Great Food, Happy Hour!

We have been to Barcelona many times and often enjoy it the best when we go in for an early dinner and sit at the bar. They offer a nice happy hour drink special and appetizer menu so you can try different things. The bartenders are super-friendly and often recommend dishes to try. We love the... read more

Perhaps it's because it offers the best nightlife (for the area), or because the staff knows me and I feel welcomed and safe, but this place is like another home for me. Food in general is quite good, I recommend the chorizo and figs as well as drunken goat cheese. I also tried for the first time their sangria rose... More

When I went to Barcelona I was part of a party of 14 people on a busy Saturday night at the restaurant. I enjoyed the food. The Hen of the Woods tapas was my favorite. But what was even better were our servers. We were a large group with a variety of needs and wants, and the people who were... More

There's a good ambience about the place & the staff & service was excellent. The wine list is also pretty good. The food was good by American standards, but average by European standards!

This restaurant is the closest thing to getting the best Tortilla Española, and Albondigas without leaving the USA. The service and the food are simply exceptional for a Spanish Tapas restaurant outside of the USA. The Beef Empanadas are that common unless you are eating Empanadas Gallegas, which this restaurant doesn't serve, but are decent. The Pulpo Gallego isn't what... More

Have been to the one in Stamford but for me this was better - better atmosphere and the food seemed better to me despite similar menu. Empanadas were great, as was the Iberico Jamon - good churros as well.

We visit this restaurant 4-6 times per year. The food is consistently good. We usually make 3 selections per person from the tapas menu. They have an active bar scene, which raises the noise level in the main dining room. If you prefer a quieter experience, ask if the back room is open. They bring out the dishes as they... More

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.

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.
