This was a truly great meal. First off the wait staff were on the spot and watching our every move and anticipating our needs. The Tapas were wonderful everything from marcona almonds in sea salt with light oil, to meats, cheese and the like. Had the pork shank, meat fell off the bone and the portions were generous. Can't wait... More

Barcelona is located in a lovely area. Lovely, warm decor inside and terrific outdoor patio. I loved the atmosphere. The food was well prepared and freshly made. We had sangria which was good. I like local places and would recommend Barcelona. So nice to find this unique place.

We have visited Barcelona every year for the past 3-4 years while visiting for a trade show in Columbus and it is by far our favourite restaurant mainly due to the lush tropical outdoor patio, extremely knowledgable staff and excellent food and wine. There is no comparison in Columbus.

Our "foodie" best friends from Bexley, suburb of Columbus, OH, took us to this superior restaurant for an evening in taste bud heaven. We were visiting after years and miles of separation, so needed a place to relax, talk, and enjoy each other's company. Not only was the service fantastic, but the entire experience incredible. A "wine flight" recommended by... More

The tapas menu is the best in the area and sharing several small plates is a great change of pace from the standard salad/main course. For two of us, the 1/2 tapas platter plus two hot tapas was great. Also kudos for good wine prices. The Raimat albarino for $6 a glass was great. We didn't sit in the patio... More

Hadn't been in several years. Stopped in for lunch. Food was good, service was good, atmosphere was great on the patio. Very beautiful patio and second only to Lindey's in German Village. Definitely worth the trip.

One of our Columbus favorites for a special evening. Nice German Village location, valet parking, pleasant interior, solid service, and consistently well prepared dishes with a menu that almost always offers something new to try. Has one of the best patios in the city though the wait to sit outside is annoying. Too bad they don't take patio reservations particularly... More

I had very good experience. I liked the food and the service. Very nice interior design and patio. One person from our group ordered the fish he did not like and the waitress was very vice about it. They let him choose new dish from the menu with no problems.

We were killing a little time before visiting another restaurant in German Village when we came upon Barcelona and decided to give it a try. Happy Hour had just started so the place was busy but we were seated promptly at a table in their lovely outdoor dining area. We ordered from the tapas menu and both food and service... More
