I was there recently for dinner with a few friends of mine. I wanted to try the paella. It was expensive, but paella often is. However, the dish had NO SEAFOOD! Really? Paella without seafood? And it was very bland. Both of those would easily make me go elsewhere for a decent paella, but the worst was yet to come.... More

I'm from Barcelona and I arrived to Albany one year ago, I tried to find a Spanish restaurant to enjoy our delicious food and I found Barcelona. I checked the menu on their website and it's not real Barcelona food, after that I decided to not go because it's not what we eat. So please, if you decided to put... More

After a quick search on google we decided to stop at this spot, the restaurant was based on reservation so the host asked if we were ok with seating at the bar. The place is cute location close to University of Albany. The food was ok, we shared the calamari fritas and it was a little chewy and on the... More

This was highly rated, but having been to Barcelona and several cities in Spain, not at all what I expected from the reviews. The menu on Trip Advisor does not list prices; I should have learned my lesson by now. It is quite pricey for the area. The food was tasty, but not authentic. The service was attentive, but a...

We met 3 other couples for early dinner on Sunday. All had seafood dishes. Mine was a rare tuna steak with a wonderful cream sauce. Our waiter was quite good and thorough.

My family went to eat dinner at Barcelona it was delicious. Its true that it takes a little longer for your food to arrive but it is so worth the wait. Everything is fresh and hot. The house sangria is out of this world. We also had the Pita Platter which is on the bar menu but can be ordered... More

When my husband and I visit his family in the Troy, NY area, it is somewhat challenging to find a restaurant that has a wide-ranging menu to suit the different tastes of family members. I did some research and found Barcelona, which is where we ended up going. I'm a relatively recent vegetarian, and found there were several items on... More

Friendly service. Not too speedy, not slow. Was very pleased to find such a great value as well as such a nice dish for lunch. I enjoyed a "Mediterranean Chicken" dish which had a generous portion of delicately prepared chicken with vegetables in pesto. When I asked to substitute pasta for the rice I was told, "sure," without any problem.... More
