Located in the German village area of Columbus, I was hoping to finally find a place to go for great paella. After trying it at this restaurant I thought it was ok but not as good as what I was hoping for. My wife ordered a "salad" and it was literally 3 pieces of romain lettuce a few croutons. It... More

This was our first experience at Barcelona, and the only reason we will return is to see how they perform with their regular menu. The service and decor were very good, so we owe it to them to try their usual fare. The Restaurant Week offerings that our party of four tried were on the whole underwhelming. Two of us... More

So many great choices. Wonderful atmosphere. Good service. Check out specials. Cheese plate well appointed. Blood sausage sounded odd but was yummy. Repeat happy customer. Highly recommend.

This is hands down my favorite restaurant in Columbus. I have visited Columbus a half dozen times in the last year and each time we've dined at Barcelona. The first time was because we were staying in German Village and it was very close. That experience and the rest of them have all been superb. The first visit and the... More

Barcelona is one of the best restaurants in Columbus. Delicious tapas that change often so there is always something new to try. EXCELLENT service and beautiful ambiance. Highly recommend this restaurant for date night.

Barcelona has typically been excellent. This dinner, however, was not as incredible as previous dinners. The mussels were EXCELLENT and I LOVE the bread and olive oil they serve. The pork shank I ordered tonight was a somewhat disappointing. It was not the most flavorful dish they serve, but it is a nice size portion! I also ordered a white... More

It doesn't matter if you go for a special event, patio dining, or just a great glass of sangria, Barcelona never disappoints. The service is attentive, without being invasive and the meals, with a Spanish direction are always excellent.

A charming patio in the middle of the city. It is complete with hanging plants and a koi pond. The food is very good with a decidedly Spanish Mediterranean accent, It is attractively presented by very knowledgeable servers. All this makes for an excellent evening. Get there early if you want to sit outside,

Noon event with sit-down meal following mixing and cocktails. Food and drinks all superb - very pleasant event. Recommend the salmon, chicken in rice and all desserts. Venue quiet, comfortable and collegial.
