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

Enjoyed our weekday night out at Barcelona! Four of us shared a flavorful paella, broccolini dish, fried codfish, and one other dish and they were all delicious! Atmosphere is fun but you can still have pleasant conversation without having to shout across the table. Our server was new but very accomodating and welcoming. Overall fun and flavorful experience nd would... More

Very tasty tapas, you need about 3 to make a nice meal. The garlic shrimp were particularly good. We managed to snag an outside table, very pleasant. I would go there again!

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.
