I have been to Barcelona many times to enjoy good tapas. This past Saturday was NOT GOOD!! Although our bill was well over $ 100. I’m not sure that it was worth half that!! The lamb chops always a favorite of mine were Totally different....More

Visited with some friends a few months ago to have evening drinks. They have a wide-ranging Tapas menu, which was just perfect with the drinks. Have also had company dinners here in the past. Food preparation has always been quite good.

I always enjoy going to Barcelona restaurant. The food never ceases to amaze me and the ambiance is nice as well. Once in a while you will get an average tapa but not very often. Also it can be crowded.

An excellent place to have traditional Spanish Tapas and wine. Great food, and very nice environment next to the Omni Hotel.

Barcelona is our favorite "go to" restaurant. We can drop in anytime and eat at the bar if its crowded. The staff remembers you and caters to your every whim. Friendly and creative menu, the chef willingly chats with you and the ambiance is cool....More

Not as far as I know. From what I saw, I would very much doubt that the kitchen is kosher. Call them and ask.

Barcelona New Haven opened in 2006 and is our largest restaurant in CT. Winner of the New Haven Advocate's "Best New Restaurant" and "Best Wine List," Barcelona is located next to the Omni Hotel in downtown New Haven just steps from Yale University. Here we have combined some of our favorite elements in a single location. A street level lounge overlooks a dining bar area with a stone fireplace. The sophisticated glass-and-steel dining room is framed by a 2000-bottle refrigerated wine cellar. The dramatic 80-seat private room is dominated by a larger than life, wall to wall, 30-foot mural of a Spanish bullfighter, and a 20-person chef's table, fashioned from a single walnut tree, borders the busy open kitchen.
