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

We shared several tapas and then the Barcelona Paella. All were very good. The service was friendly and efficient.

Had a great experience and fine food and wines in a busy Saturday night. The assorted tapas dishes were good to excellent and the Barcelona Paella was excellent. It was a very busy evening but we never felt rushed or ignored. Will definately go back.

Since discovering this restaurant we return to it each time we are in town. The food and the service is spot on. The scallops dish is unique and delicious. The last visit we thoroughly enjoyed the rhubarb cake. The outdoor patio is gorgeous!

Barcelona is good. It's a modern restaurant decor-wise and has a diverse menu with lots of seafood. It can get noisy, so it's best to have a reservation and ask for a corner if noise matters to you.

We travel to Columbus every other week, and have been eating or way around this wonderful city. This is one of our top picks. Great food, service and fun atmosphere. We started with appetizers and drinks. We went with our servers recommendations and everything was amazing, My husband had the paella De Costilla Y Vieiras (short ribs and scallops) and... More

I try to get here every time I'm in downtown Columbus. The wine list is good, the service is top notch and the scallops/bacon/lima bean entree is not to be missed. You will want to lick the dish before you leave the table.

I was here for a family member's wedding reception. The place has a romantic atmosphere. Food is authentic Italian! Everything went smooth and we all enjoyed the experience. However, I have no idea how much it cost!

Great patio dining in German Village. Regular Tapas menu as well as weekly specials. Can't go wrong with the paella either. Good staff that knows when to be available and when to stay away.

I cannot rave more about the service of this restaurant. Our server was attentive, without being overbearing, and very helpful with the menu. She even brought me a vegetarian amuse bouche, as the one served to the table contained shellfish and I am allergic. She did this even though I said I was fine and did not need anything. The...
