Barcelona Wine Bar
- Open Now
Barcelona was a pick for us to try something new in Charlotte around our neighborhood, the thought of tapas like weve had in Spain seemed too good to be true and oh my, we were pleasantly taken by surprise by the experience. We were greeted by a young man named Von Smith, attentive, brilliantly well informed on the cuisine and wine selection, and a personality and charm thats simply unparalleled. My husband and I loved our server as well, her name was Madison and was graciously inviting and well trained in her craft, just amazing! We are definitely returning for the fare, but more than anything thanks to the experience Von provided for us. Thank you for the detailed attentions and the delectable olive cake. Simply wow, youre a star and the restaurant is now among our top places to dine in Charlotte.
Drinks and the tapas ordered were delicious! Best mushrooms Ive had in a while at a restaurant. Server was great. Took off a star only because the half meat platter wasnt the best. Really salty and just overall didnt enjoy it and I thought it shouldve been the best part. But for drinks and the tapas I ordered, 5 stars. Will definitely go back just for those. Oh and I almost forgot about the small fire that happened with a candle as they were closing. So glad everything was fine and they got the fire out pretty quickly.
My first experience at Barcelona was amazing! We were seated very quickly and our orders was taken immediately. The food started to come out almost 5 mins after we ordered! Everything was amazing! Abs Olive oil cake is a must. Cant wait to return.
The jamon croquettes were absolutely phenomenal. The rest of the meal was okay. Its a fun atmosphere to get a group together and try some unique dishes. Highly recommend getting a reservation. Although we had to wait 20 minutes longer than our reservation time and even longer for our server. Once we ordered, various servers would drop the plates and quickly whisper what they were and leave immediately. It was easy to miss if we werent prepared. Definitely not a bad experience overall, but probably not a go-to tapas spot personally.
Service good Food was banging! Lots of food choices Atmosphere had a cool rustic vibe Nice mix of music serenading the night Everything is basically A la Carte unless you order platers/plates Only drawback was the 86 Sanitation Grade, but they seem to be working on that because the place stayed busy and I didn't overhear any complaints. I will return....
