There are so many options that it is good to go with a small group so you can sample several items. Each time I have gone my server has introduced me to something new that was delicious. Listen to your server!

As a New Yorker living in Stamford, my expectations for restaurants might be a bit too high. But Barcelona is the one place that meets my expectations. Sure, the service is at times a bit too casual (though always friendly), but the food can’t be...More

We love Barcelona in Boston so we quickly accepted our business partner’s offer to dine at the Stamford location! Farrah B was our server and was excellent despite a jam packed restaurant, offering tips/suggestions and checking in frequently. We loved the local gnocchi dish and...More

Our first and best tappas place in town. Never had a bad dish here although some that were not favorites because of ingredients I don't like. Never be afraid to ask servers about a dish, they know them well. Also despite being known as a...More

The tapas are excellent, inventive, served with care (if there were a few miscues) and most reasonably priced for what you get. The atmosphere is energetic but not tiring. We always leave beyond stuffed, but strangely nothing was left on our plates.....

Pros: The food was very good. The Jamon and Mahon we had for starters was excellent. The Patatas Bravas were well executed and a little different from other places I have had them. The duck carpaccio with shrimp was a surprisingly good combination. The sausage,...More

Depends... if you're there late on a Saturday night, people are on date night and dressed a little nicer than business casual. But it all depends on your comfort level.
