Tapas food is our favorite choice for a restaurant. We have never found a place that was equal to our favorite spot in NYC called Las Ramblas.....BUT....this is a very close second. The outside patio is worth waiting at the bar for. They do the patio on a first serve, first come basis. We also got a pitcher of the... More

Barcelona Restaurant is located in Germantown, but is not a German restaurant. The food has a Spanish flavor and is very healthy. At lunch order from the daily specials for a delightful lunch. Desserts are wonderful.

Wow, this place is consistent. Every year I come here and it has yet to disappoint me. Very good wine selection, great tappas menu, wonderful sea scallops entree. All the folks in my party were very happy with their food as well. The service, the management all exceed expectations. Shout out to Dylan for outstanding service.

Such a lovely restaurant! We chose to enjoy our meal outdoors on the patio. There were so many flowers and plants and a beautiful fountain to enjoy. Our waiter told us they received the best outdoor dining in Columbus for the last 7 years. They had 3 different types of sangria, which was very refreshing. There were many different tapas... More

Order paella and a few specials. Try the different sangrias. You will not be disappointed. Especially liked the short-rib paella. Can be noisy. Ask for a quiet table if you like to chat.

I love this restaurant! The outdoor seating is really romantic and cute and the food was phenomenal. They have tapas so you can order a little bit of everything. It's a perfect place for a date night or romantic evening out.

As the title suggests I was last in Columbus 2 years ago, when first visited Barcelona. The good remains excellent, and this time we sat outside which is fantastic. On both visits the food has been memorable for all of the right reasons, accompanied by good quality attentive service. This time around I had the calamari, Paella Barcelona, and cheesecake... More

This freshly chosen and deliciously prepared food made my mouth sing, I had a thought the next day that this is how I'd like my food prepared and planned every day. So many choices, I had gazpacho and salmon with Caesar salad. Charcuterie was a surprising hit. Red sangria was really good. Pretty expensive but high quality food.

We love this place. Great food, outstanding service and interesting wines and beers. Barcelona has moved from a special occasion place to a regular destination
