Really good Espresso

I was really in the mood for espresso when my co-workers and I went here for lunch! They had good service, good food and really good espresso. :)

Nice place over all. The atmosphere is nice and food is good. Service can be hit or miss. Had some that were very attentive and others that took forever.

It took 15-20 min for our server to come to our table after being seated. Another 15 before we were served water. Like any Tapas restaurant, there are many selections, which is great as it affords the opportunity to try something new. Although the place was busy, which we took as a good omen, the food was less than stellar.... More

To be fair, I am not reviewing the restaurant as a whole, only an experience at the bar on an early Friday afternoon. We had already eaten lunch so we stopped in for some afternoon drinks and maybe an appetizer or two. We ordered two red wine Sangrias while making a decision on an appetizer. The Sangrias came out in... More

Cocktails are fairly expensive for the size of the drink, but that is rather standard for the Clayton area. However, the food was excellent. We got a steak skewer that was delicious and cooked perfectly with some balsamic like sauce that was too die for. We also got the roasted cauliflower and additionally the goat cheese and bread. Really, really... More

A buddy and I had time to blow in Clayton and were in the mood for wings. After having googled "wings" and "Clayton, MO" an article from the River Front Times mentioned that this place had "Best Chicken Wings St. Louis 2008". Now mind you, I don't necessarily need to have traditional hot or spicy "buffalo" chicken wings", but the... More

We tried several tapas and enjoyed all of them. The atmosphere is lively and good for going out on the weekend. I would recommend it to anyone.

This is a great restaurant to go to with friends. It's loud, but the food is extraordinary! It's a fun atmosphere with a good wine and cocktail list. We shared several fabulous small plates and had a blast!

We stopped for an early lunch at Barcelona. I've heard of it for years and finally made the visit. The wine list was good and we had a bottle of Spanish Sauvignon Blanc. The black bean soup and Serrano ham and Manchengo cheese plate were good, but the lettuce on the cheese plate was wilted with no dressing. Next we... More

Who would think that one could enjoy such a fabulous tapas "outdoor" experience in late October - but alas it is true, certainly at BARcelona in St Louis, MO. Temps in the upper 70s combined with outstanding offerings from the kitchen fused together to make an outstanding dining experience. There was plenty of room inside the restaurant, but all the...
