“Outstanding Tapas at Barcelona!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

I shared a large family meal at Tapas on July 13th. We met in a private room (13 of us) and had impeccable service. The tremendous variety of tapas was incredible! There was something for everyone - vegetarians, meat eaters, fish eaters, etc. The wines were perfect. I highly recommend visiting this restaurant for a relaxed, friendly meal with family and friends.

“Best Tapas in Greenwich!”

Our PACU department went out on a weekend for Tapas and drinks! We had so much fun trying on all the Tapas and drinks especially the Red and White Wines! We became better friends and coworkers for life!

“Consistently great food with a Fun, Relaxed and Buzzing ambiance...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Been to this restaurant (and it's parent restaurant in Norwalk CT) many times over the years. Finally, after a 3-year sojourn in Europe, got to go back tonight. Fortunately, it hasn't changed, because it continues to serve great food with a Fun, Relaxed and Buzzing ambiance.
All of the Tapas were really good...in particular the Beef Empanadas and the Calamari. The Paella main course was excellent.

“A place for young professionals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

I heard many good reviews from my friends but I had no chance to come to Barcelona. My friend was in town, and we decided to try it out. I was glad that we did.
The wine list was gigantic. Tapas that we tried, goat cheese, chicken, and shrimps, were all tasty. We ended our dinner with crepes and coffee - oh, so delicious.
It became quite loud, but it sure is a place for young professionals to see and to be seen.

“My go-to place for a drink & a snack with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

I'm a fairly frequent visitor to Barcelona in Greenwich (and also sometimes in Stamford), because it's my go-to place to grab a drink and a light meal with friends, and sometimes colleagues. There's friendly staff, a great wine list, and delicious small-plate food. Because it's tapas, meals can be customized to various styles of eating (e.g. vegetarian, vegan, etc.). It's a fun environment and it's usually easy to get a seat or table within a reasonable timeframe.

That said, my only complaint is that at certain (predictable) times, it's more a bar scene than a restaurant, and it gets crowded and loud, so that if you're trying to catch up with a friend over a glass of wine it gets difficult to have a conversation. If you're looking for a Friday night bar scene, though, then this is the place!
