“Romantic tapas!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Went here for my wife's birthday to start our evening off and were very delighted! She just wanted some appetizers from here before we headed of to her choice for dinner. There just so happened to be a tapas sampler with like 6 or 7 different tapas that was featured that night so we ordered it. Hands down the best tapas ever, highly recommend due to their creativity and hospitality! We will be back for the full dinner soon!

“Romantic Evening”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Dining at Barcelona evokes memories of times well spent and hopes for times to come. The food is delicious, the service extremely attentive without being annoying. The surroundings on the patio on a summer night is serene, but the hubbub inside can also be very invigorating. Go here for a special meal or for a spur of the moment night out. You won't regret it. Prices are not exorbitant and you can meet your budget by ordering tapas ! Special place on German Village in Columbus

“Much improved”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

t's been several years since we've returned to Barcelona. The last time we were here, the food was quite disappointing, especially the paella. However, we've been hearing good things about it for a while & decided to give it another chance.

Besides a slight mixup on the reservation, everything went very smoothly. The service was professional and helpful. There were four of us and we started out with an assortment of five cheeses, and three different dried meats (chorizos). The cheeses were excellent, as were two of the three meats. For the dinner we had an assortment of tapas. Everything was very good, but the shrimps in wine sauce and the avocado with goat cheese especially stood out. The mussels were also very good. My wife ordered a glass of red (excellent) while I got the Caipirinha (was just okay). For dessert we shared the chocolate brownie a la mode, which was every good as well.

Overall a much better experience and we are likely to try it again soon.

Ate here during 614 Columbus dining week. Food was really good. Service was good too but SLOW. Value for price paid not so good. $14 for a cocktail? Portions were small. Will need to go back on a less busy night.

“Incredible Meal”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

This was a truly great meal. First off the wait staff were on the spot and watching our every move and anticipating our needs. The Tapas were wonderful everything from marcona almonds in sea salt with light oil, to meats, cheese and the like. Had the pork shank, meat fell off the bone and the portions were generous. Can't wait to go back!
