Barcelona Restaurant DC on 14th Reviews – Read Before You Go!

I have never found an even remotely good tapas restaurant in DC, including the two others on 14th street, which is why I was a bit worried when I couldn’t find any Barcelona on 14th restaurant reviews.  Regardless of finding reviews of Barcelona restaurant on 14th street, last night my friend and I went and gave it a try.  Barcelona on 14th not only kicked every other tapas restaurant in Washington DC’s butt, but they had the best service, an amazing cocktail and wine list and the servers knew everything about the menu.  Our bread baskets were full, our water always filled and when our drinks came out a bit late, they comped them.  Even if the service at Barcelona restaurant on 14th street in Washington DC was horrible, the food would have turned it into a 5 star experience!  Before I go into the food and share more pictures, here is the address and two Spanish themed aprons that you can wear while trying to prepare your own versions of traditional tapas foods.

Best food at Barcelona Restaurant in Washington DC on 14th Street

If you couldn’t tell from the image of the chanterelle mushroom tapas plate above, the food at Barcelona on 14th is amazing! That was actually our least favorite dish and the only thing we didn’t like. When I say we didn’t like it, that just means it was the only thing that wasn’t amazing. They were great, but everything else we had was absolutely amazing.

tortilla espana at barcelona on 14th

The tortilla’s de patatas or toirtilla espana at Barcelona on 14th were amazing.  Instead of serving them cold like the traditional recipe, they serve them hot and with a nice side of sour cream and chives.  This fun twist on a traditional dish is a great thing to help with the reviews of Barcelona on 14th.

sweet bourbon drink at barcelona restaurant in dc

This drink was absolutely amazing.  If you are going to have a drink with dinner, skip the wine and get the sweet bourbon drink that is on their house specialty cocktails.  I don’t normally drink bourbon but this cocktail was amazing.  We both had them and both went crazy over them.  If anything causes good comments or happy social media mentions for Barcelona on 14th reviews, this drink is one of the best things it has going to get your night started off amazing!

brussel sprouts and bacon at barcelona restaurant dc on 14th

brussel sprouts and bacon at barcelona restaurant dc on 14th

How can you go wrong with bacon and brussel sprouts?  The only thing wrong is that they used baby brussel sprouts so the bacon falls off and you have to dig for it on the bottom.  They also could have used a bit of sea salt on them, however they tasted amazing and we went through them within minutes.

churros and chocolate barcelona restaurant on 14th street

churros and chocolate barcelona restaurant on 14th street

If you’re going to eat at a traditional Spanish styled restaurant, you have to go with a traditional dessert like flan or Churros con Chocolate.  Not only were their churros con chocolate amazing, but both tables next to us saw them, smelled them and ordered them.  Even if you don’t have room for dessert, order these.  You will love them and if you don’t, you shouldn’t be reading this blog!  If there are any negative reviews of Barcelona on 14th, the person who wrote it is probably on something (just my opinion).   Everything there was amazing and we both loved everything.  We only have positive things to say so our Barcelona restaurant on 14th reviews are all good and we highly recommend you eat there!

  1. The Brussels Sprouts with bacon look absolutely incredible! Is this Barcelona related to the great restaurants by the same name in CT?
    If so…then DC is definitely in for a treat!

    • Hi Bonnie. They are the same. We have the Manager from the one in northern CT and the waitstaff right now. You guys have an amazing restaurant up there!

  2. We Visit Their Fairfield And Sono Locations A Ton…Great To Hear Of An Amazing Restaurant Expanding. I Will Spread The News To My DC Friends And readers

  3. I just tried this restaurant in CT and it was delish- I’m so excited that I’ll be able to introduce my friends in DC to it as well!

  4. Is this the same Barcelona that was at Greenwich Wine&Food? If so, then hats off to them!! The food was the best thing I have ever had. THE best. I was blown away. Would love to review them someday!

  5. i LOVE the barcelona in west hartford. sounds like they’ve recreated that great experience in DC. the brussels are FABULOUS and that tortilla espana looks fabulous.

    I went back to Barcelona DC on 14th Street tonight and had a completely different experience. Barcelona Restaurant in DC n 14th Street was horrible. Our Barcelona DC Reviews are all now negative. I waited more than an hour before they said they didn’t have my number so they didn’t seat me (they should have asked when they took my name) but they wouldn’t take reservations because the wanted to encourage walk ins. $50 later on drinks and 1 and 1/2 hours, still no table, no food and bad service. Do not eat at Barcelona Restaurant DC. Barcelona DC reviews are negative. The food may be good but the restaurant is not well run and they need to bring back the staff from CT.

    • The food was amazing and the Manager invited me in to apologize for the negative experience. I have gone back twice since the bad experience and the negative experience was 100% a fluke and not regular for them. The food and service at Barcelona DC was perfect both of the other times and I highly recommend it. If you want amazing food and haven’t tried Barcelona DC yet, you need to try it!
