Description: Opened in 1996, the original Barcelona, South Norwalk, has grown from a tiny tapas bar seating 30 to a 140-seat restaurant with two sophisticated, beautiful dining rooms and an outdoor patio. The original 40-foot-long, hand-carved walnut bar is still there, as are the young and young-at-heart who populate South Norwalk in the evenings. SoNo Barcelona showcases the old brick and raw steel of the former factory building it inhabits. It's a touch of SoHo in SoNo, with the food and flavors of the Ramblas.

“Long running winner”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

A fixture of South Norwalk for over a decade. Very innovative and changing tapas menu. Excellent, diverse wine list. Service always excellent. Tapas come quite quickly so order your tapas sequentially over time otherwise they will all be delivered too quickly. Very leisurely restaurant. One of several in lower Connecticut and all excellent.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

We came here for my birthday dinner, a suggestion from my coworker. My friends were iffy about it, ESP it was out of our comfort zone, being we weren't from SoNo. This place was awesome. The service is great- the hostess, bartender while we were waiting to be seated, waiter and waitresses that helped him. He informed us about the tapas and the drinks selection. The red sangria was delicious. After 3 glasses, we decided to get pitchers. We even debated to come back tonight for more!

“Innovative food & excellent service”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Long term South Norwalk bar & restaurant. Innovative food that changes with the times. Extensive list of tapas. Service excellent with waitress, her assistant and manager overseeing service in our section. Wide selection of wines focusing primarily on Spanish wine but plenty of other choices. Impressive span of wine prices. Started with two tapas for the two of us and decided that we would rather have more tapas to complete the meal. Timing of delivery to the table excellent. Shared excellent desert of warm apple crisp with cinnamon ice cream. Have been going to this restaurant for about a decade, usually three or so times annually. Have never been disappointed. If you are fortunate to have Brittany as your waitress guaranteed an excellent experience.
