Great tapas!

Great selection of tapas, friendly staff, and the laid back atmosphere we were looking for! Good choice and we'd return. Desserts were especially good...

We love BARcelona, and come here when we have something to celebrate. My college age daughter asked to go here to celebrate her birthday most recently, but we have also been here for anniversaries and date nights. Favorite menu items include the Marcona almonds, papas bravas, the cauliflower with raisins and spices, and the sangria. These are just a few... More

We had great food and service here. The waitress was very knowledgable on food and wine. Only negative would be it was super loud!

The energetic atmosphere of this bar pairs nicely with the fresh and flavorful tapas on the menu! Order a few things and share! It's a great way to eat through a menu and socialize!

I have been going to BARcelona for many years and not one time has it disappointed me. I recently had jury duty and decided to go by myself. I could have walked to a closer restaurant but decided on walking a little further in the rain to go to one of my favorite restaurants. They have lunch specials. I tried... More

We visited this restaurant based on St. Louis Mag's description of it as "The Best Tapas in St. Louis". I was very disappointed. The food and cocktails were quite good, but everything else was less than stellar. Our server came around very infrequently and seemed harried and a bit absent-minded. She often fluttered around pointlessly and then disappeared for twenty... More

After a Cardinal baseball game four of us very senior adults stopped for drinks an dessert. As busy as it was, service was good. Dessert menu limited. We were satisfied with our choices. Seems like a popular trendy place for the younger set under 35.

We had come here couple times a year going back to 09. Hadn't been in about a year. Used to love this place. Now Food mediocre at best. Seemed like larger portions with really no taste. Like atmosphere of the place and you can sit outside although this area in Clayton on decline from just a year ago with closed... More

I really like tapas and really like the tapas restaurant La Bodega in Kansas City, Missouri. I was hoping to replicate that experience here in Clayton in St. Louis County, but was disappointed. My chicken skewer was quite tasty. However, a dish supposedly of garlic spinach and chickpeas, was almost 99% chickpeas. While it tasted pretty good, it was mis-described... More

I was there with my family, place is quite nice and clean, not very comfortable chairs. We've waited 20min to get served. The food was quite good! Thanks
