The thing about the Coney Island hot dog eating contest that I never understood is that people like hot dogs so eating a lot of hot dogs isn't that difficult. A greater challenge would be eating the food from "Barcelona" bar. Firstly, the drinks were woeful. My "cider" was just cloudy apple juice with a hint of alcohol. My gf's... More

Had a big family dinner here while visiting. The tapas and sangria were really good. Lots of sampling and passing things around. Food was good. You may have to stand in line and wait to get a table

Eat here all the time, with my wife or family include 1 yr old. Food is great. Atmosphere perfect. Actually had my 40th celebration here with family and friends. Waiters couldn't have been better.

Barcelona (Downtown Stamford CT) - I loved the tapas, and thoroughly enjoyed the patatas bravas with salsa and garlic aioli, as well as the crispy panko breaded squash blossoms. Both the spinach-chickpea cazuela and broccoli rabe were good veggie choices. The service was great because the waiters were attentive and open to answering questions about the tapas. I plan to...

Four summers ago, I went to Barcelona for a long weekend. Hoping to relive a bit of that tapas-tinged life, I headed to Barcelona Stamford last night with my bf for what was to be our last dinner out for a long time (and hence a special night). We ordered five tapas to share: the Asparagus/Arugula salad, chickpeas and spinach,... More

Stayed at marriott courtyard across the street so it was easy to stroll over to barcelona at about 5:30 on a wednesday evening. We enjoy dining at the bar and ivariably find conversation with staff and/or other guests. Met our server,Seth. I enjoy a Manhattan before dinner. But I want it made my way. Seth listened and crafted a great... More

Barcelona has a decent menu at ok prices but gets so busy it's hard to get a table there any day of the week. Obviously it's because it's good there but I found it noisy and cramped with a long wait to get seated. My advice is try it out but be sure to book.

Service is good and food is also nice. If I am not mistaken they also deliver in the Hotel just like room service.

The food was definitely good, who doesn't like a good tapas place. However, it was a little overpriced in terms of the quantity. I have had better tapas before and thus was not thoroughly impressed. The service was excellent but they did not time our tapas very well, they should have waited till we finished what we were eating before... More
