Arrived at 12:05, Patio seating was perfect for 79 degrees. Swift service, server was perfect by Kyle, Appetizer was served quickly. Fried Calamari was excellent. Our lunch was served within 15 minutes. Cubano Grill and a Grilled Salmon Sandwich with an Artichoke Salad were devine. . We will return for dinner with small plates to share and enjoy.

Interesting concept for the area. Had a good flavor and a fresh menu. Did not care for the sent of old people when you walk in the door. The decor inside was cool, couple of paella were good. One not so much, we had a large group service was friendly. Probably won't return for a while.

Barcelona is one of our favs. Patio dining, small and large plates, wonderful wine and drink selections, etc. This will #1 for us. Last night was the first time the service was below standards. Food was wonderful (salmon, Brussel sprout salad, short rib), but our server stopped by once during the entire dinner to ask how we were doing (and... More

Fabulous Tapas. Excellent service - we had such a great meal we came back two nights in a row. Everything we ate was outstanding. Gambas al Ajillo and the Pulpo were amazing. Looking forward to returning. Make a reservation it gets crazy busy.

Visited family in Columbus last week and wanted to check out Barcelona. I only have good to say about this restaurant. Inviting atmosphere, attentive server and delicious food. We ordered a carafe of white sangria, several tapas and (2) different paellas. All were outstanding. Would definitely go back next time we visit.

We were in Columbus in early Fall for an Ohio State football game and I wanted to take my wife to German Village. Instead of waiting in line for what looked like an hour, we decided to walk around to see what there is to see. Quite by accident, we noticed the Barcelona. The building is well-maintained and there were... More

It was our 3 year anniversary and we decided to go to Barcelona in German Village Columbus. We had reservations so we were taken immediately to our table. I would always suggest making reservations as it saves the headache of waiting. We were seated at an intimate table for two. The wine list was excellent and our server Patrick was... More

This is a great place. The appetizers, main course and deserts are divine. Well thought out plates that are pretty authentic in their origins. I had the paella de mariscos that was absolutely delicious, plentiful, and filled with fresh seafood. The deserts are incredible as well. Parking is a little tight but there are businesses around that have some space.... More

We went to Barcelona once before and after a vacation to Barcelona. Great atmosphere, great service, good food, pretty pricey. Food in the real Barcelona is cheap and delicious... but you have to get there first.

My husband and I love the patio during the summer. If you like scallops like we do you will be very happy! Yes it is a little pricey but well worth it.
