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

I dined here several years ago and went back last week. I forgot how great the food and service was! Portions are "normal" size so there is room for dessert. Pricing is a bit high but the food is well worth it. Our waiter overheard us talking about it being our friend's birthday and he brought us out a piece... More

Came here with my family looking for the Italian food I knew in the Capitol District over 40 years ago. Was not disappointed. Only two veal dishes, I seem to recall more variety at Fannies in Latham, but that closed a few years ago. The veal parmigiano was good and the portion was generous. Gambas all aji, steak chimichurri, and... More
