    When we walked in I was leery. For the middle of Clayton, the interior is definitely low key. Not dirty or messy, but downscale. That was more than compensated for by the excellent service and tasty tapas. We ordered most of the menu, including all of their desserts and got out for less than $100 a couple. We all loved the place.

    Food was good. The paella was different than I expected. The rice was a little gummy and it had a lot of liquid. I’ve tasted much better paella. The other small plates we shared were very tasty. We sat outside and we ordered red sangria. It was very tasty but maybe when serving outside provide a separate pitcher of ice as the sangria became very watered down. The staff was awesome. Some of the best wait staff I’ve ever experienced.

    We used to come to this restaurant frequently. Decided to come back after pandemic since we had good experience before. We ordered chicken croquettes, calamari, beef tapas and gazpacho soup and empanadas. Soup smelled sour and not fresh, I asked to take it back. Calamari were dry like a paper, beef was tough. Croquettes we’re ok and empanadas we’re just ok. Server was ok but not too welcoming. Never came to our table to check if we needed more water or anything else, or to see how food was. Very dry and not quality service. I would not go back for sure plus would not recommend it to anyone. It’s just high end of junk food.

    In the past we have always enjoyed eating at Barcelona. Service was ok.. although they were not too busy. The beef Pinchot was like eating a piece of charcoal. We didn’t eat it. Server didn’t offer to take it off check or comp a different option.Meatballs, spinach and cauliflower were ok. Too many other great options in St Louis

    Food was delicious, drinks were good. When it started to get busy, it did get quite loud...loud enough that I had to concentrate to hear the person across the table from me. Service was very friendly, but not super attentive. I'm usually pretty forgiving about service, given what the service industry has and still is dealing with, but it seemed like they were plenty well staffed.

    The food was very good. I also loved the red sangria. I loved the meatballs, goat cheese plate, and croquetas. I also had the seafood paella which was just okay. If you avoid seafood then I think everything you get will be delicious! Great for dinner and drinks with friends or large groups.

    It was definitely not at all what I expected. It was very chaotic, disorganized, and extremely loud. The food wasn't traditional Spanish food and were sometimes not spelled correctly on the menu. The waitress was nice. Overall, wasn't super impressed and don't think I will go again.

    Overprice for the amount of food you get. Ordered the mussels and it came with 8 very small mussels, the paella is only good for one. The food is a bit bland. Ambiance is nice, we went at noon so can’t comment much on the noise level since we’re the only ones there.

    Even though the website says they're following Covid protocols, three different people brought food to our table not wearing a mask. Our main server kept her mask on, but what the hell? People were walking around the restaurant without masks as if 3 million people haven't been killed by Covid.

    Amazing experience- just moved to Clayton from Chicago and I can say that this is going to be our go too spot for dining and entertaining guests. The music was a vibe, the food was amazing and the tequila was on point- only thing they are missing is the new Freshie tequila seltzer. Can’t wait to get back!
