Went with great expectation - love Spanish food spent three summers in Spain. Ticino con brusela pork belly poorly prepared fatty & greasee (the pork belly should be steamed before frying) Costillea (shirt rib) tough & salty. I could not finish either dish. Paella the rice was a little hard - not from a crust on the bottom, but under... More

Helpful staff, nice selection of drinks, outstanding menu (which changes with the seasons), well-prepared meals. In the summer, it is very pleasant to dine in the courtyard in the evening. We go once or twice a year regularly and have found the quality to have been consistent for the past several years.

We had dinner here before on the recent Ohio State football games and i had heard a lot about this restaurant. It more than lived up to the hype and we had a great meal. We sat outside and it was perfect. I would highly recommend.

We decided to take a small group (8) of work colleagues to a very nice Columbus restaurant to celebrate and have a team bonding experience. The last time I went to Barcelona was a few years earlier and decided to go back here since I knew the experience is always good, it's in German Village which is a great part... More

We recently enjoyed dinner here for the second time in a couple of years. The bottom line is that we had a very enjoyable time. The service, as a number of other reviewers have indicated, was top notch. We only had the tapas, no entrees, and enjoyed it. Some reviews complain that the food is only "ok", not exceptional, and...

We dine with another couple on a Friday evening. The restaurant was busy and tables close together. We ordered the white sangria. Sangria should have fruit in it and this one did not. Menu has a lot of seafood on it which everyone likes except me. They were willing to make a vegetable paella with add chicken. The spicy peach... More

I love this place. The wait staff is awesome (ask for Layla!) and the menu changes monthly. That said my go to is the tapas plate, a nice assortment. And the squid ink paella is delicious!

Visiting my daughter at Ohio state, four of us went to dinner at the Barcelona. The room is bright and busy. The service excellent. I shared the Paella Barcelona with my daughter. The paella was dry and consisted mostly rice. The rest of the party shared some tapas including shrimp, mussels and croquetas. All were good but not exceptional. The... More
