“Great Happy Hour!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Was looking for a place for a few happy hour drinks after a long day at work, and found Barcelona. Best deal in town with glasses of decent spanish wines for $5 and tapas 3 for $16. The meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce were tasty, as were the empanadas. My favorite was the chorizo with the spicy figs. It was amazing! The bartenders were friendly as can be, offering great advice on what to order. The next time I'm in Stamford, I'll be back!

“Definitely a keeper.”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

It was Friday night so the place was full, not packed, but full. Was able to get a seat at the bar right away. The bartender, Alan, was great in recommending some wine. Very pleasant employees, good service, also great clientele. Didn't try the food, but the dishes going by to the tables looked delicious. Definitely worth going back.

“Barcelona Wine Bar, Stamford, CT”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Wonderful, friendly restaurant, one of our favorites in Stamford. Great menu and great wine list. On weekend evenings, the main room is loud, due mainly to the large bar and great appetizers. There is a smaller, quieter intimate room that we prefer. This is a busy place, so be sure to make a reservation. The food is always delicious, and the staff is very helpful in describing the excellent Spanish dishes.. In nice weather, the outdoor tables are our choice.

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

They have different tapas to choose from. The ones we had were good. The sangria was yummy. The place is small and intimate.

“Wonderful food - high volume”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Excellent tapas, but on weekend evening very noisy in main room. In warm weather an outdoor table is a great way to avoid the loud main room. There is also a small room that is quieter.
