BARcelona Tapas - Indianapolis Ratings and Reviews

I always enjoy Barcelona. The food is very consistent--I always order the roasted cauliflower, then switch up meats. This time, tried the tuna and it was just what I wanted--something light and healthy. We often get the empanadas, which are a favorite, too. The prices are reasonable and the food comes quickly. Now that I've been eating at BARcelona for 7 years (it was 7 years this weekend since first time I ate there!), I wish they'd make some updates. I like that the place has character, but some soft surfaces in the main dining area and bar would go a long way to make it warmer and absorb the noise. The red booths are hard and lumpy. I don't care for the restroom, it's usually a mess and dark. This restaurant is around because it's reliably good food, but I wish they'd do something to give it some love through the years. Literally, the only thing that's changed is they had red plastic Coke cups, then they went to Pepsi for awhile, not sure what they have now since I haven't had a soft drink there in a long time.

NIce friendly, casual atmosphere, good bar. Unfortunately, stopping by for a cocktail or beer is all I would recommend this place for. The food is not great. A goat cheese dish I ordered consisted of spaghetti sauce with some goat cheese in the middle, served over pieces of toast. Steak was OK and was cooked to proper degree, but was served with a rich, overly-sweet sauce, as were the accompanying mushrooms.

I was hoping for so much more from this place but my friends and I all left rather disappointed and we'll never go back. This restaurant felt like a chain restaurant with mediocre food quality - not the upscale tapas bar presented online at all. I ended up with major stomach issues for 48 hours after eating a variety of tapas. The waitress was not very attentive nor friendly as she rushed; she seemed too busy making personal phone calls the whole time. It took a long time to get drinks and they were never brought out at the same time. Food quality was subpar, unfortunately.

I have been going here for years - I am never disappointed! Our Servers - Alexa (at the Bar) and Robert (the teens sat at a separate table) were efficient, knowledgeable and personable. Since I live 45 minutes away, I don't get to eat there as often as I'd like but this was our 6th year of eating there as a family (usually with friends or family in tow) for New Year's Eve.

We ordered a set of plates for the table of six and shared. All items were good. Lamb, mac and cheese, and calamari were outstanding. Decor is not fancy, but staff friendly and fast. Easy walk from Banker's Life or Circle Center.

Compared to Tapas in Spain, some dishes are a bit disappointing . I can recommend the tuna and the goat cheese, the bacalau was also good. Overall it is americanized tapas especially some of the sauces. On the positive side, it is good for groups to share tapas and the wine is decently priced and of good quality. Some real wine glasses would be nice.

Food and server were great. We were seated to a large group (12+) of 20-something Anti-Trump Rally protesters who were very loud and very free with their opinions. This seating arrangement and their loud interactions put a damper on the overall experience. We had had reservations for several days in advance and wondered how we got seated next to such a group.

Food was good. Service was great. Atmosphere a bit noisy due to acoustics. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. We had a party of 4 adults. Table ordered 3 drinks, plenty of food to fill us up, and we split 2 deserts. Total bill $80. Averages to $20 per person. Good value for a good, unique international meal with drinks and deserts. We will definitely be going again with friends !!

The food was horrible. We assume that they use frozen food, microwave it and bring it to the table. Their concept has nothing to do with tapas unless they think putting a little amount of food on a regular size of a white plate is Spanish/ Mexican. We are very disappointed with the quality of good. Their food was not fresh, they do not even make the food there. Additionally, my sangiria was so served in a small water glass full of ice. Everything felt like left over food. Horrible! I would not go to this place again an I also would not recommend it to anyone. Sorry, Barcelona, but my experience was a wAste of money, you need to get a real chef, fresh ingredients, tapas plates and then call yourself a tapas restaurant.

When we arrived, the restaurant was a little noisy, requested an outside table. The staff was happy to oblige. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and made excellent recommendations after asking us a few questions. This was our first visit, but will not be our last.

We had a great meal and good service! The only thing that was a little less than perfect was the asparagus which was just lukewarm. The chicken wings are absolutely amazing, and the churros are the best ever, hands down!! We will definitely be back!

We were celebrating 2 birthdays and had reserved a table for for 9. Everything was ready even as some of us arrived early. Our waitress was attentive and helpful with menu choices. She brought complimentary tres leches cakes for the birthday celebrants - a nice surprise. We all look forward to our next visit.

Went for the last day of Devour Downtown Indy after a round of golf with my wife. Temperatures were mild so we sat outside. Menu is outstanding with a number of favorites - the iconic goat cheese in tomato sauce, gambas and flan to name a few.

I am a frequent diner at Barcelona's and usually have a wonderful experience with their brunch or dinner. It has been declining over the past year. On this particular day, we came at 12:30 excited for a birthday lunch for my friend (her restaurant choice). The buffet was not stocked at all during our visit. This means we were extremely limited on our dining choices. The usually fantastic curry chicken salad tasted more like mustard chicken salad, and there was not an option for hot food as the chafing dishes were empty. At peak lunch hour this is unacceptable. Although we received compensation for our horrible visit, we will not dine for lunch unless we arrive at opening.

Went on a date for Devour Downtown.. The drinks were very expensive and the service was awful. We waited 45 minutes for one item that never came, then didn't get desert until we asked 3 times. Won't be going back.

This place is always just kind of odd. The devour downtown menu was excellent! Fantastic value and it was really tasty. The servers just always seem a little weird...not them personally but just the way things seem to flow with the operation. But the food was great and it is consistent.

We like Barcelona Tapas for the Sunday sangria brunch. The small plate orders from the kitchen are what we go for - the french toast is wonderful, the omelets are great, and the eggs benedict are tasty. The buffet line, however, seems to have suffered recently. We used to have a hard time eating everything we wanted from the kitchen because we'd load up at the buffet, but now I generally only take a couple of things (the curry chicken salad and tres leches cake are excellent). The atmosphere is fun, and the service has always been excellent. Go for the small plates from the kitchen, and you won't be disappointed.

Dined here before going to the Need To Breathe concert at White River Park. Really good food with a large variety of options. We did the prix fixe menu plus some entree's and other appetizers which were all yummy and relatively healthy. I would highly recommend Barcelona Tapas for a couple's date night, small groups, and large groups because the atmosphere is festive, the service was top notch, the food was good, the portions lend to sharing and sampling, and the noise level is just right to allow jovial conversation without being intrusive to others' dining experience.

2nd time and I was not impressed at all. Party of six and meal was not served "in order". 1/2 the party had their desert while the other half still had "main" courses coming out. Waited to minutes for order to be taken and the dining area was only 1/3 full. Disappointed considering all the other options in Indy.

We tried the restaurant due to Devour Downtown Indy. Was a nice way to sample several items for a lesser price. Needed more salt. The Marina & Goat cheese dip, the shrimp scampi and the flan were delicious. Other selections were average. Glad we didn't pay full price.
