This place is a really nice, and has a completely different feel than most bars in the crown and temple area. Drinks are excellent. I've had the food, it's good, but a little pricey for what it is.

A great tapas restaurant right next to the Omni hotel. As note there are no signs, so just walk into the store front with all the dark windows. The variety of tapas is fun and they were all delicious. The calms were the best!

We walked up and down the street trying to find Barcelona. THERE IS NO SIGNAGE! We had to walk in and ask if it was Barcelona. When we asked why there wasn't a sign....they just laughed. So I guess it's like a Speak Easy? We...More

This restaurant has several locations in CT and never fails to please. The tapas are always so good and the selections appealing. If you don't like the noisiness of the place then consider going during happy hour times when the atmosphere is a bit different....More

Not as far as I know. From what I saw, I would very much doubt that the kitchen is kosher. Call them and ask.

Barcelona New Haven opened in 2006 and is our largest restaurant in CT. Winner of the New Haven Advocate's "Best New Restaurant" and "Best Wine List," Barcelona is located next to the Omni Hotel in downtown New Haven just steps from Yale University. Here we have combined some of our favorite elements in a single location. A street level lounge overlooks a dining bar area with a stone fireplace. The sophisticated glass-and-steel dining room is framed by a 2000-bottle refrigerated wine cellar. The dramatic 80-seat private room is dominated by a larger than life, wall to wall, 30-foot mural of a Spanish bullfighter, and a 20-person chef's table, fashioned from a single walnut tree, borders the busy open kitchen.
