Excellent food on an innovative menu. We enjoyed sharing several dishes, all of them very good. Including the Paella, the garlic Shrimp and the Palatas. The staff were excellent and were easily able to help us navigate the menu. Be prepared though, the noise level...More

Four of us dined at Barcelona recently. We sat outside on the warm, pleasant evening. Waitstaff was friendly and helpful with advice, though seemed a bit stretched with time later in our visit. We sampled assorted choices and generally pleased with all. Whole branzino fish...More

We visited this excellent tapas restaurant at the end of a long day of moving. The atmosphere is sophisticated, and it's popular enough that you should plan on making a reservation (a very long line developed shortly after we lucked into a table). There were...More

Food is excellent, service is great. Tried a bunch of different dishes. Scallops were exceptional. The dessert is also amazing, get the apple empinadas and the crepas.

Very well managed restaurant with excellent food and superb servers. Food was served what I would consider "family style" although they have a much fancier name. One dish we ordered consisted of steak, sausage, grilled pork chop and grilled chicken. The steak was tender, (top...More

Yummy food! Can be crowded and a bit noisy. But the service and food make it worth a visit. Try to get there early to secure a table instead of sitting at the bar.

Barcelona meets Brookline, and a sophisticated Boston neighborhood has a wine bar to call its own. A historic town located minutes from downtown Boston, Brookline is the perfect mixture of urban and country living. From large estates and recreational parks to boutiques and pedestrian-filled streets, Brookline offers a city atmosphere in a suburban setting. Located in Washington Square at 1700 Beacon Street, Barcelona is the newest addition to this lively neighborhood dining destination. A mix of antique wire glass, steel and reclaimed wood gives our newly built space a vintage appeal. The rustic, polished environment is the next best thing to eating tapas and drinking wine in our restaurant's namesake city. With hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and spacious patio, the space has a European charm which fills the menu as well.
