A real good friend of us invited us for lunch after being Alive @ Five and it was a real good experience!!! As any other tapas restaurant, the portions are not that big, but these ones were really tasty, specially the chicken ones!!!

The first thing that I need to mention is that for a place that serves Spanish tapas, having American football pictures providing environment to the dining room is totally wrong. Please put some european, Spanish and Mediterranean pictures. The food is average good. Nothing wow, good season but a greasy. The most important thing of my review is the service.... More

Very busy/lively place for a late Sunday night. Not a seat available at 9pm. They managed to fit music in the front, tight but liked it. Sundays they have 50% off all bottles of wine, even the higher wines, and being a wine drinker, this was for me. The food portions we reasonable and generous for small plates. We ordered... More

Of all the Barcelona locations, this is my least favorite. I've consistently been made to wait when I have a reservation. The last visit was about 40 min. The food is good. The service acceptable.

We called for reservations and ran a bit late, but the staff at Barcelona were able to accommodate us with no wait. Food was tasty, especially the morcilla (spanish blood sausage). The sangria was good, albeit it a bit too sweet. Our server, Nicholas was super helpful and made sure all our tapas were run out super fast. I've eaten... More

Delicious tapas! Went with a party of four, we each ordered two small plates per person and 1 large to share plate. Can't say I loved the large sharing options but all the tapas were amazing. Such a cozy clean restaurant. Service was great as well!

This was not our first dinner here and we will definitely go back when we visit again. The service is exceptional and food comes at great pace for a tapas restaurant. We ordered so many different dishes. Meatballs, chicken, calamari, several different vegetable dishes, skirt steak , and crepes for dessert. were some of our choices. Huge wine selection.

Work called for a trip to Stamford this week. We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott and our group did need to venture far at all to find some very good food, as Barcelona is right across the street. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and an ample menu. We all ordered a couple plates apiece and shared. All of it... More

Both my husband and I are very familiar with authentic Spanish food. This leaves much to be desired. The atmosphere is pleasant and the idea is great. The quality of the wine and food was below standard.
