Super fun place to come. Great wine selection. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Tapas were fun to share. Paella overdone and not very tasty. All selections were a bit pricey but definitely the place to meet friends for conversation over a glass of wine.

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.
