We recently tried this restaurant after looking thru trip advisor and were pleasantly surprised. Located near U Albany on Western Ave, this restaurant serves a variety of mediterranean and american dishes at a reasonable price. We loved Max, our server, who went out of his way to Wow us. Now it's on our short list of favorites and we recently... More

Celebrated my birthday at Barcelona. What a perfect choice. The food and service were exceptional (as always). Truly felt like we were in Barcelona! Can't wait to go back😀

Companion and I visited on April 29, 2017 for dinner. I have driven past this place for years and never thought about it for dinner. We won't be making that mistake again; it is excellent. I was torn among 6 entrees that I wanted to try. I chose the fish special - Mahi Mahi, cooked perfectly with rice and veggies.... More

A friend and I were visiting Albany, and after a long walk around the old Albany neighborhood in which this restaurant is located, we were ready for something different for dinner. It was a perfect spring evening, and without a reservation, we still scored a table on the upstairs deck. I had a simply scrumptious "Zuppa di Pesce" that was... More

Small local place worth checking out..if you like eggplant parm..this is the place to go! My husband had the lamb and loved it. They have something for everyone and a great wine menu as well.

We had a party of 9 for Easter dinner and it was very good. There was only one mishap...that being the fact that someone at our table had a long piece of hair in their salad. The waiter apologized profusely and returned with a new salad. The prices are a little high but everyone enjoyed their food. The building was... More

My husband and I come here whenever we want a meal we know will be good. The tapas at the bar are delicious (and so is the sangria). One of my favorite meals of all-time is the rack of lamb. We've never had a negative experience here and it's a place I always recommend to friends.

I went here with my family for my cousin's baby shower. The staff was great. The location was perfect from the hotel. The food was great even for vegan and vegetarians. I would go back.

Tiny sign out front. Drove past it three times (look for the Key Bank, it's next door). Pleasant interior. Not that busy, but we stood there way too long to be seated. Some tables have white linen table clothes, some do not. Reasonable menu and prices (for Albany), but for a restaurant named after a Spanish city, a majority of... More

My group of five wanted to try something different for lunch this past Thursday. So someone mentioned Barcelona on Western Avenue in Albany NY. Three people had diet coke and the other two just had water. For lunch I had the Ensalata Romana – Grilled chicken atop a bed of fresh spinach garnished with goat cheese and garbanzo beans with...
