Excellent Food, Uneven Service

We had a fantastic lunch of several tapas items, including the meatballs, goat cheese, calamari, chicken/chorizo skewer, and garlic shrimp. The calamari were just lightly coated and served piping hot; maybe the best we've ever had, and we order it alot! The goat cheese is served in a pool of... read more

We went to a special event called Taste of Clayton that featured a fixed price three course menu. We had reservations and were seated upon arrival. This is a noisy restaurant with hard floors--we had difficulty conversing. The warm olive salad was nicely seasoned and featured at least 4 different varieties. The entree choices each had a meat and seafood... More

Located on Central Avenu, Clayton and one block from City Hall and in an area full of dining experiences, BARcelona more tha holds her own. There is no better testimony than a full house at dinner time. The tapas are tastily prepared, the service casual but warm and attentive, prices reasonable, and the bar/aports V area is lively and joyous.... More

My wife and I sat outside with our dog and enjoyed a great pitcher of white sangria and some very tasty appetizers. Highly recommend the chorizo and chicken and the potatoes. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and delicious drinks.

The food is always great here. Lots of interesting tapas to mix. Fish tacos are my favorite. and always a nice selection of wines. Very casual, but good food. We've only been there during the week, as I hear it gets crazy on the weekends.

We went on a weeknight looking for a pitcher of Sangria and something to eat. We were seated by the hostess and then seemingly overlooked. The hostess and a waitress for the bar side were standing around by the door, I finally went over and asked about a placing a drink order. She went to the back and came back... More

We grabbed lunch. We ordered the bacon wrapped dates as an appetizer. The bacon was crisp around the date and the stuffing was warm and delicious. We ordered the shrimp dish and the lamb chops. The lamb chops were served to perfection. The shrimp had a nice heat to it. Our server, Virginia was gracious and attentive. We will be... More

We were here for lunch on a Saturday about 1 PM. From the street and major signage there was no indication this was "Tapas". I'm familiar with Tapas bars in Barcelona Spain and my guest are adventuresome but the waitress and menu gave me no support in describing the offering or the serving sizes. "Pretty big" does not describe a... More
