Fabulous Tapas. Excellent service - we had such a great meal we came back two nights in a row. Everything we ate was outstanding. Gambas al Ajillo and the Pulpo were amazing. Looking forward to returning. Make a reservation it gets crazy busy.

Visited family in Columbus last week and wanted to check out Barcelona. I only have good to say about this restaurant. Inviting atmosphere, attentive server and delicious food. We ordered a carafe of white sangria, several tapas and (2) different paellas. All were outstanding. Would definitely go back next time we visit.

We were in Columbus in early Fall for an Ohio State football game and I wanted to take my wife to German Village. Instead of waiting in line for what looked like an hour, we decided to walk around to see what there is to see. Quite by accident, we noticed the Barcelona. The building is well-maintained and there were... More

It was our 3 year anniversary and we decided to go to Barcelona in German Village Columbus. We had reservations so we were taken immediately to our table. I would always suggest making reservations as it saves the headache of waiting. We were seated at an intimate table for two. The wine list was excellent and our server Patrick was... More

This is a great place. The appetizers, main course and deserts are divine. Well thought out plates that are pretty authentic in their origins. I had the paella de mariscos that was absolutely delicious, plentiful, and filled with fresh seafood. The deserts are incredible as well. Parking is a little tight but there are businesses around that have some space.... More

We went to Barcelona once before and after a vacation to Barcelona. Great atmosphere, great service, good food, pretty pricey. Food in the real Barcelona is cheap and delicious... but you have to get there first.

My husband and I love the patio during the summer. If you like scallops like we do you will be very happy! Yes it is a little pricey but well worth it.

Having eating here a handful of times I've unfortunately given up. Each time the service has been diffident, and menu knowledge and recommendations were slim. The faro salad is the worst transgression, as I couldn't eat more than one bite and my waiter was oblivious to the uneaten dish. It was just glop. I'd love to be more precise, but... More

We stopped in for dinner about 6:30 on a Friday night without a reservation. Okay, we thought we would check. No reservations available until after 8:00pm, but we were welcome to a seat by the windows that offered full service. We walked in, took one of the open tiny cafe tables and noticed about a half dozen open two and... More

My husband and I went here for our anniversary and were delighted with our dinner and excellent service. Our server Mike T. was polite, helpful and attentive. It was our first time dining here, so we decided to try several tapas to share. Mike was helpful in recommending the quantity per person (he suggested starting with 2 per person). We... More
