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...

The food was good and fairly authentic. The staff was very professional. The noise level was high and not conducive to conversation. Overall, a nice place.

Arrive early on a weekend evening because this place can be hoppin! The atmosphere is fun and the sangria is excellent! There is a nice variety of moderately priced tapas. A shrimp and sautéed garlic which makes you want to lick the plate and a goat cheese melted with a delicious tomato sauce the leaves you asking for more bread.... More

This actually was only my second run at a tapas place (the first being in New Mexico). I ate here with my wife, 2 adult children, and my mother-in-law. It definitely has a party atmosphere, with a very large party (15-20?) right next to us. So, it was very loud. There is a wide variety of dishes to choose from.... More

Tapas, but had Paella with ham and cheese appetizer. Was like Prochuito and the cheese was great. Paella was like a Rissoto recipe, good and filling

My sister and I dined here several weeks ago and had a terrible experience. We had reserved a table, but due to a large party in the main dining room, we were seated in the bar area. Our table was next to a half-wall near the kitchen. To monitor what was going on the manager was leaning against the wall... More

If you'd like to experience some authentic Spanish cuisine you need to visit this restaurant. Order the marinated olives and toasted almonds. If I lived in Clayton I'd be eating here once a week.

My daughter’s interest in trying new restaurants with a claim to providing gluten-free meals took us just to the edge of Saint Louis in Clayton. Clayton is an upscale area with a business district and a large number of restaurants intermixed or ringing the area. One such street is Central Avenue which has a number of shops, bars, and eateries.... More
