No longer Barcelona, now My Big Fat Greek Restaurant.. This place is now My Big Fat Greek Restaurant. I've heard they still have dancing, but have not been since it changed. It changed at least 6 months ago.
dont order the paella. Went here for my B-day music was great but extremely loud for a jazz band. Food was horrible stay away from the paella.
This east valley spot is a supper club, nightclub and family restaurant rolled into one..
Lounge outside on a misted patio or chit chat on comfy couches within. But at 10 o'clock watch out: tables are removed from the pillar-rimmed, fresco-painted rotunda to make way for strobe-lit dancing. Southwestern food comes in large portions, crispy pizza (particularly the shrimp and artichoke-topped Mediterranean) and cheesecake made with creme fraicheis are a few of the favorites.
Overrated. Very dissapointed in our experience. The food was average at best. The worst part of the experience, hands down, was the service. It started with waiting over 5 minutes for a waiter, who then mixed up our drink order twice, compounded by slow service after he finally did make his appearance. I could go on (disinterested bartender, bar chairs badly in need of replacement), but I think you get the drift. Much better places to spend $50 for two on meal alone.
Pretty Nice.. I certainly wouldn't call Barcelona a "club", but I enjoyed a nice relaxing dinner there last night. The decor is inviting, the live jazz band is a nice touch. Started with two tapas: salmon croquettes and the hummus wth grilled foccacia, both were well presented and tasty. The menu items are very plainly described on the menu so I was surprised when the meal was very well seasoned and presented. I tried the Chicken Scallopini with roasted potatoes and asparagus spears. It was much better than I expected. Sangria is sold by the glass or pitcher and accompanies most of the menu well. I disagree with the editor above that describes the food as "southwestern", the menu here is much better described as medditeranean influenced.
Not worth the gas to get there. I don't know what that guy was talking about, I thought I would try that place and the staff was uneducated and rude, the food stank and the music was terrible. This place may have used to have been nice but not by a long shot. I tried to talk to the manager and he was no where to be found. If you value your time and money skip Barcelona and dine at a real restaurant.
Barcelona - Chandler. I questioned whether I should go to Barcelona after reading 3 negative reviews. I took a chance and was extremely delighted. Everything was GREAT - Service, Food, Ambiance. A little expensive, but would recommend to anyone.
All old people, no service. I agree with the previous ratings. I had a terrible experience at Barcelona. Food was horrible, and this so called "club" offers nothing for those who are under the age of ninty. I suggest if you like fine food, or having a good time you skip this place!
Horrible. The service was terrible. The food was overpriced and very plain. You would expect a place that put so much money into decor would have thought about improving the food and most certainly the service. Our server was slow and new nothing about the menu or the wine selection. She seemed much more preoccupied with talking to the other staff instead of tending to her tables. We were not the only table that was unhappy with the experience we recieved. I will not ever return to this restaurant.
Never Again. I have never been to a restaurant that had service as horrible as Barcelona. Our server took over ten minutes just to greet our table. After we finally asked the hostess if we did in fact have a server we did not even recieve an apology. The food we were served was not what we ordered, then we were informed that the entree I had ordered was now unavalible. The music was so loud that my husband and I were not even able to talk to one another at the table. The food was horrible, the service worse and the clientle left much to be desired. I would reccomend that no one subject themselves to the sort of treatment we recieved at Barcelona.
