I've had several meals here and each was delightful. The service was never rushed but I was always able to leave (if I chose) in about an hours time. However, tonight the service was painfully slow. The food was still as good, as always, but that was overshadowed by the 2 hour meal. For a romantic meal maybe 2 hours... More

Had Red Snapper meal. It was fantastic. I have been there before and and had the Seafood Paella. That was also very good. Great food and prices are not too expensive.

We visited with a large party, lots of indecision and special requests. The waitress handled everything with grace and got everything right...high marks for that. My meal, a filet with roasted potatoes and grilled vegetables was very good. They really could use more help on the floor but the women working tonight worked hard and quickly, too bad they didn't...

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.
