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

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

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 wonderful zesty red sauce with a basket of addictive garlic... 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.
