Barcelona is one of the best restaurants in Columbus. The menu is varied, but my favorites are the tapas. It is easily possible to make a meal with two of them, as servings are quite large and food is hearty. We particularly enjoy going for happy hour, when several tapas are reduced in price as are a variety of wines... More

Foodies around the world are celebrating Barcelona for its amazing restaurants. Barcelona, Columbus, Ohio lives up to this reputation. First of all this restaurant has a beautiful decor. Being fresco diners we love sitting outside and even on a hot summer day in August, sitting on the patio at Barcelona was a wonderful experience. We loved the atmosphere and the... More

We were a largish group of colleagues... no doubt a daunting prospect for restaurants but at Barcelona everyone from front of house to servers was exceptional. Separate checks? No problem. Happy hour drinks? No problem, but please order at the bar. Guests arriving at different times? No problem. This is a handsome looking restaurant in a lively neighbourhood. I'm not... More

High quality tapas, good service and a green patio for outdoor dining. It was busy but the waiter was on top of the game. Excellent food.

The setup is very European - close table and noisy. If you do not like that, look elsewhere. If that is what your heart desires, welcome. We had a few drinks which were great and the Paella Barcelona were great. Asked to get lamb meatballs instead of beef and they worked with us. Will like to go again later in... More

Excellent food and sangria. Dine in or outside on the lovely patio. They customized our menu to wish us a "Happy Anniversary" and were very attentive to our needs.

We gathered for a family birthday party at Barcelona in January, and found we liked it so well we celebrated our wedding anniversary there in mid-August. The evening was hot and muggy, so we chose to eat inside instead of on its colorful and inviting patio. Fortunately, we sat close to the patio, so my wife looked out on it,... More

Barcelona never disappoints. We enjoyed three tapas and two Italian, one Spanish wines. The goat cheese stuffed pepper (top right) in a Carmelized sugar/ lemon basket was our favorite. We liked both the Prosecco and Cava. Stayed for dinner and a couple more tapas. Braised short rib tapa excellent!

My husband and I made reservations on Open Table for Barcelona restaurant in German Village. At the time I made the reservations I let them know I would like to have patio seating and that it was our 44th wedding anniversary. As soon as we were seated on the beautiful patio, our server Zach greeted us with menus and said... More

I agree with previous postings that the ambiance and service are excellent. Menu choices were abundant and wine list ample and priced well. I rate the food itself as very good. Since I've been to Barcelona, Spain and have an excellent tapas restaurant in my hometown of Louisville, Ky., I can't give it an excellent. It is a wonderful addition... More
