Always bust bar & restaurant. Great choice of tapas and entrees. Excellent wine list, especially so if you are cognizant of Spanish wines. Service always good. Parking across the street in quite large, pay, municipal lot. Food always quite good.

Dinner with friends. Bar is narrow but fun. Good when the DJ gets going (or it used to be !). The food is tapas & Spanish. Great flavors, very good for sharing, best bread & olive oil. Combine with great cocktails & good wine. Feels hip. Feels cool. Tastes great. Somehow better than the sister restaurant in Stamford tho' the... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food never disappoints, and the wine and knowledgeable servers to help you choose your wine, are always on point. The tapas selections let you try different tastes and not commit to one big meal of something you might not love. There is a really good chef always at work here. Plus it's... More

Went here with a large group for drinks and appetizers and ended up staying for dinner. Great bar, good selection of wines and affordable. I think we sampled every appetizer on the menu and most were great. Especially liked the ham and cheese balls. Sounds odd, but they were yummy. Excellent service and a varied menu. Lots of fun and...

Barcelona has dropped quite a bit since their early days. What was once a new and creative dining experience has gotten a bit old and stale. The menu is stagnant and uninspiring. Happy hour isn't much of a deal and doesn't change much. For a place that calls themselves a wine bar, they pour some pretty cheap wines that taste... More

My wife and I decided to come back to Barcelona's because of a previous very good experience. Called a week before and told them we were visiting again and will be celebrating my wife's birthday. Unfortunately, it was not noted because nobody said anything until I pointed it out to Jason, the GM. He was very nice. We (2 couples)... More

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.
