Description: Opened in 1996, the original Barcelona, South Norwalk, has grown from a tiny tapas bar seating 30 to a 140-seat restaurant with two sophisticated, beautiful dining rooms and an outdoor patio. The original 40-foot-long, hand-carved walnut bar is still there, as are the young and young-at-heart who populate South Norwalk in the evenings. SoNo Barcelona showcases the old brick and raw steel of the former factory building it inhabits. It's a touch of SoHo in SoNo, with the food and flavors of the Ramblas.

From Calaluya have only the name, but is for me one of the best places to go in Norwalk. You should make reservations because is always full especially on weekends. Price is ok and the food is excellent

We eat here at least once a month with a group of friends. We love the Sangria and they keep them coming! The specials they have on the bottles of wine are a nice touch to try something you maybe wouldn't due to the price but the half price specials make it worth trying. Love that the menu changes with... More

Love this restaurant in South Norwalk, CT. Food is terrific, well-prepared and the menu has a variety of choices from the tapas to the main entrees. The grilled meat entrée for two is fabulous with more than enough for two adults. Most of all the atmosphere and the service is one of the best in the area. If you are... More

This is by far the best tapas and wine bar in Fairfield County. They have outdoor seating which is wonderful in the spring, summer and fall! The chef produces phenominal tapas and daily specials! They have a huge wine selection and if you're not sure what you'd like to try, the staff will suggest one that will become your next... More

Recommended to this restaurant from a nearby conference center - so glad I asked! It was a wonderful meal with excellent service. We asked for suggestions on wine and menu selection, added a few tapas of our own and ended up enjoying all. The flank steak was likely one of the best, although the cheese & jamon was also very,...

Went on a warm Sunday evening in late September for our most recent visit. Outdoor tables on North Main street were noisy due to traffic, but enjoyable and filled. 1/2 price on wine bottles on Sunday still in place, but no longer is the 6 tapas for $48 which is what my wife and I enjoyed the most. Instead, they... More

We hired Barcelona to cater our daughters engagement party and they were amazing. Food, service, and all were the hit of the party (well the churros were a little strange). After the event they gave us complimentary dinner for 2 (drinks were not included) and we went for a romantic evening. We started with 2 apps, then moved on to... More

Went there for a team outing. Room for the event, was probably partly the wine cellar. The food was great. My first event in South Norwalk was pleasantly surprised by the restaurant district, and the quality of Barcelona.

I've always liked the food, service and energy of Barcelona, but last night's dinner there was not enjoyable. We shared several tapas and most were fine with the exception of the tuna tartare which was flavorless. My disappointment stems from the exceptionally hurried pace of the service. Our waiter was in such a hurry, that he didn't take the time... More
