“If I lived in Reston I would be eating here often! WOW”

Barcelona Wine Bar & Restaurant
Ranked #3 of 171 Restaurants in Reston
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Spanish, Wine Bar
Description: 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.

WOW! I love this place. From the great service to the spectacular food...it just can't be beat! _There were 3 of us and each one of us felt the same way. The appetizers came out super fast! Our Mahi fish sandwiches were excellent. The staff were so friendly and helpful! I personally loved hearing how they loved their jobs. DO NOT MISS STOPPING HERE!!!!!

Barcelona is a favorite Restonite watering hole, with an elegant yet hip vibe and a large bar with tons of seating. Bartenders always are friendly and take great care of you, and they have a generous selection of wines. Food is tapas-style, and while really yummy, can get a bit expensive if you're hungry and looking for a real meal. Hanger steak and croquettes are my 2 go-to favs.

It seems like you can't go wrong with anything you order from the menu. Their tapas are exquisite and they do have gluten free versions should you wish for that as well. The same goes for the divinely rich GF chocolate cake "Indulgence" that was on the house for my Birthday. Very sweet! Literally and figuratively. :D Thank you! Yum!
