After 10 years been first Barcelona, their food is closer to real deal

I went to Barcelona SoNo from 2005 to 2007, when I lived in the area, the place was nice and food was trying to be authentic Spanish ... Not quite there. This year I came back to Stanford after 8 years and my surprise is that Barcelona has great kitchen and quality of food, flavors are much closer... read more

I had eaten at another of the chain's restaurants and was pleased. When our dining group chose this restaurant for our monthly dinner, I was happy. Wanting a paella dish, I was looking forwRd to our dinner. We gathered at the bar and I was told that it was a half-price bottled wine night and I ordered an excellent Malbec... More

Not sure about value for money as I didn't pay ! Only let down was the Irish coffee which was a mug of instant coffee with a drop of whisky. It wasn't officially on the menu but still no excuse. Otherwise very good and attentive service.

Once choosing a bottle from their extensive wine collection my party of two and I chose four tapas (to share of course!) and a cheese port. The food was excellent and the wait staff couldn't have been better! We had made a reservation, as it was a Friday evening and this is a popular place! I found our bill to... More

Specializing in Tapas - this is a great location for a large group willing to share and experiment on options! We ordered several items from the menu and just passed them around among the 7 of us and got plenty to eat over the course of our meal. Waitress was attentive and kept the food coming at a pace that... More

We had a girls weekend trip and had dinner and drinks at Barcelona on Saturday. The service was phenomenal and the wine selection was incredible. I recommend definitely getting a cheese board to start!

I am sorry but you have got to be kidding me. They changed the menu and took some very good items. I ordered the red sangria glass was small and nearly after three sips gone as nearly entire cup was ice. Ordered the Ahi carpaccio. Not only was the tuna not blood red as fresh tuna should be it was... More

This is an excellent place for Spanish food and wine. It is very well run and you will never be disappointed. The staff is friendly from the moment you walk in until you leave. And the atmosphere is upbeat - sometimes almost a hip scene at the bar. The problem is you'll also never be surprised. It used to be... More

If your looking for a quite romantic dinner, this is not the spot. Food is good, place is extremely loud and the bar scene just engulfs the place. If you don't mind noise and not being able to converse at the table and being bumped into then this place is for you. If its a bar scene your in search... More
