Weekend drinks at Barcelona found us at the bar with an energetic crowd (to say the least). Busy and vibrant, with a youngish crowd. The specialty Richmond Gimlet was a hit with my wife, and the Sumarroca Gran Reserve sparkler was a clear cut above...More

Really surprised! The service was great, the food was better. They charge a bit much for tapas but what do you expect in Reston. Go for happy hour drinks were decent for the price, but nothing special. Sadly to say the paella was terrible. It...More

No kids menu, but make sure you speak to your server they will accommodate a menu for your child, they just don't advertise it.

Barcelona Restaurant and Wine Bar is an award-winning Spanish tapas restaurant group located in Atlanta, GA, Washington, DC, Boston, MA, and throughout Connecticut. Barcelona was begun in 1995 by Sasa Mahr-Batuz, based on his memories of years of living in Spain and Portugal, and Andy Pforzheimer, based on his 20 years as a chef at world-famous restaurants in France, California and New York. Beginning with a tiny, 38-seat wine bar they set out to recreate the feel and the look of an evening on the Ramblas. They worked hard and made no compromises to achieve their aims: sophisticated decor that evoked Milan, SoHo, or Rio de Janeiro. Simple, flavor-filled dishes redolent with olive oil, lemon, smoky paprika. A comprehensive list of wines by the glass from around the world, with an emphasis on the lesser-known regions of Spain and Portugal. They were guided not by any places that existed at the time, but only by what they liked, and the way they liked it.
