Tapas were excellent. Service was attentive. Wine was delicious. The atmosphere was perfect- hip but not too loud. This has been and will continue to be a regular go-to treat for us. I love that they take reservations too!

Visited Barcelona in WH. Have dined at namesake in Brookline. Food, drinks, and service were excellent! Thank you for an enjoyable dining experience. PS upon exiting viewed many people wanting to dine at another establishment. They apparently did not do their homework.
