WOW. What an experience. Night started a little rough with a salad dish coming out with some unwanted ingredients (rubber glove tip) but OH man did they make up for it. The chef and manager apologized then proceeded to send FOUR tapas complimentary then took care of our entire check. Great customer service. Great food. Very impressed.

Barcelona has been a frequent dinner spot for my boyfriend and I and we recently started going to their brunch.

Food was good. But middle of the night the brought on a DJ and the volume was turned up to 11. If your looking for a good wine bar to mingle at be prepared to talk to people on a elevated level. Also there is a fantastic patio with heated lamp posts and blankets to wear outside.

A lovely place with a lovely staff. Jennifer, Marissa, and the kitchen staff all went out of their way on a busy Friday night to take care of my party of 10+ people. Everything we ate was delicious and every bottle of wine we ordered was spectacular.

Food was great! Very delicious food. Only problem was our server smelled like B.O. there is NOTHING WORSE (I mean technically there is) then having a server who deals of body odor severing you food. It's is very disgusting. Besides that everything was nice about this place.

These guys are killing it!! Every plate was unique, flavorful and perfectly cooked. Service was on point, friendly and relaxed. On top of that, the decor is beautiful. Great for a date to share small tapas plates or get the paella to share with a larger party. Don?t hesitate, just go.

Was in Denver on business near 16th street. Went here on a tip from a local, was very impressed.

Solid food, solid wine list, food service as usual at Barcelona. First time at the Denver location and I was happy to find a place that served food late (we landed late and everything else in Denver seemed to be closed or not serving food). Great date spot!

This place is LEGIT! Authentic food right here in Denver. I took my husband here who has never tried any food like this in his life, we ordered essentially every tapa on the menu and it was to DIE for!!! He is still raving about it the next morning. From a girl who's been to every place with the best food ever, this is as authentic as it can get with an upscale twist! Every tapa was just so well made and presented. The flavor from EVERY tapa was truly just way above average. We will be back!!

Barcelona is always a go to when asked for where to go for an amazing dinner. From the moment we walked in until we walked out, hospitality far exceeded what we expected. The charcuterie and tapas selection is delicious and we were given a wonderful recommendation for a bottle of wine. Thanks to the great team! Will continue to rave about this experience and look forward to another night in Barcelona!

This restaurant is amazing. The atmosphere is full of life. The food is wonderful and the staff are outstanding. I want to give a shout out to Gaylynn. She was the bartender to the outside bar on 3/29 when it was raining outside. Since we had an hour and half wait for a table we stood outside and she was great company and very knowledgeable regarding their wine list and food. I totally recommend this place if you every stop in Denver.

Brianna L. review is very mixed. In some ways I was very pleased such as our bill only being $78 for 8 tapas and 2 glasses of wine. However we only enjoyed 3 of the 8 tapas. We did like the Potatas Bravas, the mushrooms, and the jamon and cheese croquettes. The chorizo and fig sauce was too much sauce, the octopus didn't have much flavor, and the meatball was bland. Here's the winner though- the flourless chocolate cake. It's bomb. Just get it's trust me. Our waitress was very friendly and I enjoyed the Tempranillo she suggested. However by about 9pm they put on club music, so depends on if you are into this. I will try again for wine and charcuterie board.

My boyfriend and I came for our anniversary dinner and it was amazing! We had Nick and Anne as our servers and they were fantastic, suggested the tastiest items from wine to our charcuterie board. We had the seafood paella and a bottle of the rosé cava along with the jamón serrano, chorizo, goat cheese, and manchego for our board. It was IMPECCABLE! They surprised us with an anniversary cheesecake with a burnt crust top layer (it's to die for) and house made cherries. Definitely will be coming back to celebrate again!

AWESOME!!!!!! The food was fantastic. The service was outstanding. And the wine was delicious! We were celebrating a birthday, and we all had a great time, especially the Birthday Girl.

Just a heads up if you come here on a Sunday night expect it to be pretty crowded because it was our first time dining here and you would've never guessed it was a casual Sunday night lol. I knew coming here it was popular and we went with their favorites-the starters(meatballs, their potatoes with garlic aioli, and their beef empanada) my favorite of the three was the empanada even though it was small but their patatas bravas were great too! We decided to get their chicken paella, but looking back I wish we would've went with their seafood one. It was on the greasier side for me. I've had better in San Diego(sorry) they tried and it was an decent attempt but it tasted more like Spanish rice. It had that same savor(flavor) you expect from Spanish rice. So my family and I were not super impressed. We enjoyed the crispness of the bottom but ya we gave it a solid and generous 7.5/10 and for dessert we got their flan which was actually super caramel-y and sweet so it was delish! And their chocolate flourless cake was super rich and decadent. Both were on the smaller size but perfect for us three girls to share!

I came here for my birthday with a party of 20 people and had a great time! The food and drinks were both amazing!!! The location is also super great and the ambience is very hip! I had made a reservation for 6 pm and due to traffic was running late but Barcelona was great in holding our table. The one thing to mention is that they won't seat you until the entire party is there. Once we got seated our waitress took drink orders and then offered to do a pre fixed menu for $35 per person. We decided against this and ordered our own selection of food. I would highly recommend getting the sangria! It was the best! For food I really enjoyed the Burrata and the Paella was soooo yummy! I don't think you could go wrong with ordering any of the food. For dessert they brought out 3 different cakes and even had a candle for my birthday! Overall I would definitely recommend going to Barcelona if you're looking for a trendy place that has amazing food and drink! It's definitely a little bit more on the pricey side but 100% worth it!

Just arrived in Denver from NYC and stopped into Barcelona Wine Bar. We loved the Octopus with potatoes & the scallops with lentils. Also had the new fall roasted vegetables. All delicious. Service was warm & friendly & attentive. Would definitely go back next time visiting Rino.

I have been here twice and really enjoy their tapa selection. Everything has been tasty. The potato tortilla (typically called tortilla española) is delicious! Their patatas bravas are also the best I've had in Denver. The hanger steak is also great. The only thing I wouldn't order again is the Gambas al ajillo. They were fine but didn't compare to the other dishes. I also wouldn't necessarily do the croquetas again, but that is because I'm not a huge fan of them in general. I used to live in Spain and have eaten a lot of them and they have never been my thing. But if you like croquetas then they are good! Additionally, the service both times I went was pretty amazing!! I felt instantly welcomed and very much taken care of. I also like that the offer 1/2 glasses of wine :)

Miggy, thanks for your review here as well. I see you have gotten back to me via email, and I trust we can earn your patronage back!

Good tapas options and ok wine flights with the exception of the sherry. A tad pricey and just so-so desserts. Lovely buzzy ambiance & helpful staff


A wonderful dining experience in the RiNo district of Denver. A beautiful restaurant with a delicious tapas styled menu. All of the dishes we ordered were tasty, reasonably priced and served relatively fast. Very happy with everything we selected. Having just visited Barcelona, it's nice to have a touch of my favorite city here at home. Will return for sure!

Wife and I went here for date night. If your looking for a great Tapas bar this is the perfect place to start or end your night. The food is tasty. The menu selection is well rounded enough to find something for everyone and their wine selection had some eclectic choices.

Barcelona Wine Bar is the ultimate wine and tapas experience, I cannot rave enough about my night there! Our waitress and Mike (one of the managers) took fantastic care of us. They ordered for us and let me tell you, nothing they ordered would we have ordered ourselves and Iâ??m SO happy about that because everything we tried was absolute heaven. The wine our waitress recommended added a new and fantastic dimension that complimented the food and dessert. They know their stuff so if they recommend something, go for it because you canâ??t go wrong there! Thank yâ??all again for the amazing experience and I will definitely be back soon!

We tried several small plates. Everything was delicious! Staff was helpful in making selections. Highly recommend!


Seriously... there was NOT ONE dish that wasn't amazing. Off the top of our brain, get: The Bacon-Wrapped Dates and Croquetas... but there is so much more!


The tapas here are just fantastic. Cn please both the vegan and meat eater alike. There are menu staples as well as seasonal items to keep things interesting. Open kitchen and a large 3 sided bar. Some outdoor seating available as well. Charming decor and space. The wine list is impressive by the glass and goes even further in depth if you venture into the bottles. Warm, fresh baked bread to go with your meal is a must. Staff is warm and inviting. It gets very busy on weekend nights so keep that in mind. If you sit at the bar I hope either Claire or Mary serves you- both are just fantastic!

Loved our vegetable paella!

I hecken love this place! The tapas style menu lets you try a bit of everything! You honestly can't go wrong because everything on the menu is super tasty. The staff is always happy, engaging and knowledgeable! A guaranteed great time!

We sat on the patio out back and enjoyed the open space. Service was good but the food was delicious. I started with the kale salad, healthy & nice. The free crusty bread and olive oil was good. I really liked the bass diner with a great arugula salad and wonderfully spiced potatoes. The hub got the chicken dish with a garlic sauce ( I couldn't stay away from ) which was divine & cooked perfectly. The red wine was smooth and sour beer refreshing. We all liked the Moroccan hummus too. We all want return ASAP.

The good: The food is great, and the price point is accessible. I didn't try the paella, but definitely will. The tapas had great authentic Spanish flavor, and the large space is well designed to make it feel intimate. The bad: Service was horrendous. When we had finished half of the tapas we ordered, our server stopped by to ask if we wanted to order more. We reminded him that we had, and he ran off having clearly forgot. And then weirdly our table got switched to another service but we weren't told, so we just sat around for 25 minutes after finishing our meal wondering where he went. Our reservation was at 7, so the server change was really weird timing. Summary: good food and ambience, bad service. We'll be back, but plan to just sit at the bar as I've heard from friends that my service experience wasn't unique.

Amazing authentic Spanish food (my family is from Spain, so I would know

Great Service! Food and presentation amazing!

Barcelona Wine Bar in Denver is part of a national chain specializing in wine and Tapas-style food. We had previously eaten at the restaurant in Atlanta and found both the food and wine list outstanding. The same can be said for the Denver location. We had an excellent Portugese wine from the Duoro valley to accompany our meatballs, croquettes, asparagus, empanadas and cheeses. The tapas selection is extensive and the serving sizes are more than adquate to share. We visited the Denver location on a Friday evening and found the bar extremely crowded with mostly a young clientele. Add to that a number of large parties in the dining area, and the sound level was enough to prevent conversation. I'm not sure if this is the case during the week, or just a Friday night phenomena. However, the bar was busy when we arrived, and still hopping when we left the Friday we were there.


This place is the perfect combination of great wine and the best tapas in Denver! Both menus (wine and tapas) are full of variety, creativity, and will please any palette. The staff is always very friendly, accommodating, and knowledgable about the menu. I also LOVE the ambience. Very rustic, wooden, Edison, and retro. The tapas are perfect for sharing and after eating here 2-3 times, I always try different tapas and every one is a delight! Their brunch special is amazing too!

Letâ??s begin with good things, like our evening at Barcelona. Food = pretty tasty | vibes = pretty alright

Bryce Laird

Fun tapas bar to go with a group. It is a lot of fun to order a bunch of different small plates and try everything. It can get a bit pricey if you go ham on the tapas but the large plates and drinks are reasonably priced. It is a chain, but they do it so well it isn't apparent (think hillstone). Great space and vibe at the Denver location. Staff are pleasant and attentive. No wait when we stopped by later in the evening for a drink.

Ivy Hastings

One of the best experiences I've had in Denver especially for a large group. Our server (Curly blond hair but did not get her name we were a party of 11 and sitting in the back near the patio.) was amazing. She picked out the perfect wine for differing palates and helped us balance our menu choices. Food came out hot and everything was amazing. Oh, and the wine list was interesting. Thanks again for a stellar experience!

Daniel Arrechea

Fantastic venue, great selection of wine. Delicious hand crafted cocktails. The tapas are delicious. Authentic Spanish ham, cheese, chorizo, what else could you ask for. If you want to feel like you are dining in Spain make this a stop!

Shane Johnston

Great venue for large groups. Vegetarian friendly. Go with the chef's recommended courses to get a great experience. Also, really good cocktails - not just a wine bar.
