Large family dinner and news years eve dinner in December

This restaurant was great on both occasions. We had a family dinner which was a blast including sharing at least 50% of the menu. Spent New Year's Eve here as well and both meals were equally spectacular. Friendly service and the food is unique compared to other local upscale choices. A new... read more

In the charming Germantown neighborhood. Good vibe and energy. Decent food but a little overpriced. ($5 born two small slices of manchego cheese, two croutons and mustard- wow!). Busy and trendy. Loved the garbanzo salad amuse bouche and the bread/olive oil/remoulade the best. $4 glass of Cava at happy hour was a good deal.

Barcelona is a great restaurant for business lunches, happy hour, special dinners, or anytime you want great food in a great atmosphere. The interior of the restaurant is really great, with old wood floors, but modern decor. In the spring - fall, the patio is open, and it is gorgeous! Definitely sit out there if you can...it's just lovely. In... More

Four of us, my 93 year old Mother, my sister visiting from NH, my wife and I dined last evening. We wanted a tapas experience. Began with Pamplona, Jamon Serrano, and Queso Iberico. All served on one plate. Good presentation. Perhaps needed a few more pieces of cracker bread. Proceeded to Ensalada de Remolacha--the beets were excellent--, Ensalada de Farro--don't'... More

From pulling up to Valet Parking to walking into having my Coat checked, I just knew that the food was going to be amazing and I was right. The food was absolutely 5 Star Food. The broccoli salad was so amazing and then the Lamb Chops were perfection. I topped off the evening with the Spanish Almond Cake. OMG. I... More

Classy establishment in German Village. I liked the high ceilings and old bar, Decent list of cocktails, wines (Spanish and otherwise). Tapas are inventive. You won't find classic tapas items but rather ones with a modern twist. I had the crispy duck paella, short ribs (possibly the softest beef I have ever ate) with crispy fried leeks, and a beet-pear... More
