This is one of my favorite little restaurants for lunch or happy hour in my home town. Clayton is a suburb of St. Louis with a sophisticated city feel. BARcelona's name is more of a reference to the atmosphere trying to mimic Gaudi's mosaics than to the northeastern Spanish cuisine. The food is closer to southern Spain. Nevertheless, great variety... More

I came here for an early dinner and, since I was dining alone, ate at the bar. It was a thoroughly average experience. The bartenders were okay in terms of being attentive to the handful of patrons who were there at that hour. The temperature inside the restaurant could be improved. It was a hot July night, and I was... More

Disappointing! This was my first visit and I won't return. There are too many great restaurants in STL. The paella was lackluster; tasteless despite looking good, probably cooked in some large pot then stopped into a paella dish. NOT rich & crusty. Don't waste your time.

Visited with another couple. Service was good...food ok. My favorite was the salmon, very tasty. The chicken wings and steak lack flavor.

I think that this is our 3rd visit to BARcelona and we were a little concerned. We had read some less then stellar reviews that it had gone down hill and since we had enjoyed it so much in the past we were hoping for the best. We got it! Good food and good service. If you like tapas (little... More

Went here with a group of friends traveling for a sporting event! We were easily able to make reservations for the count and time that we wanted. The staff was friendly and welcoming on the phone and upon arrival. Even offered options for seating. The drink menu is complete with plenty of options. There was a wide swath of choices... More

Liked the atmosphere. Neat concept on sit, talk with friends, share food. The sharables were tasty but in small quantities and a it pricey. Still a nice place. Would go back.

Came with about 10 people and for the amount of people we had, our service was outstanding. We had a table in the bar area in front of the open window on a perfect night. Our waitress was very attentive to our needs, always checking in on us for another drink or more food. She was quick with our orders.... More
