beautiful decor with reclaimed wood 20 foot high ceilings. Excellent wine list. I had a great pinot noir for $11 a glass. Service was very good and dishes (we stuck to Tapas) was great. There were 4 of us and we all ordered 2 Tapas each and everything was really tasty.

This is my second visit to Barcelona Wine Bar Waypointe. I did not write a review after the first time because it would not have been flattering and I decided to give them a break as they had just opened. Also, I have always enjoyed dining at the SoNo location and I know how great it can be. Now, months... More

My friend and I love sitting at their large, white marbled bar... Happy Hour food choices aren't quite up to what they were at the old SONO location, but it's still good. The place has a very nice vibe, and we'll be back!

Was excited to try the new location, seems like it took forever to open after the sono location closed. Went on a Sun. night and it was crowded in the bar room, so we got sat in the dining room. The server took a very long time to come over and greet us and to take our drink order. When... More

Good Evening, I'm terribly sorry your service suffered during your visit to the Waypointe. Sounds like your server had an off night. We strive to give the highest quality service to every guest and clearly fell short here. I would love the opportunity to discuss further. Please contact me directly at the restaurant.

I am originally from Barcelona and certainly i was very pleased to see how well the design and food is capturing my home place. I was also very pleased with the level of service and attention from all staff and certainly we will repeat! Ideal for drinks and tapas or dinner. Location has parking space which is convenient.

The new Waypointe location is great, and the vibe inside the restaurant really works. Food is still consistently good and that's why they get the four-stars from me. And, I will continue to go there. But, the service needs work. Wait staff doesn't communicate well. I've been to this new location a number of times and mangled orders, drinks that... More

The new location for Barcelona is tremendous. The food selection and quality is still excellent but the new location is superb. Great ambiance. Well done. Excellent, friendly and professional service is also a plus. Excellent all around.

Barcelona is a great Spanish Tapas restaurant which locations in Fairfield, Stamford and Norwalk (and maybe others). The Norwalk location closed last year as they were moving into the Waypointe building on West Avenue in Norwalk proper. After a brutally long wait, they finally opened in the Waypointe. BTW: the picture is the old location although the address is right.... More

Long story short: skip the new Barcelona if (I) your time is valuable (II) you are in a large group and (III) you value hosts and hostesses providing realistic feedback as to when your table will be ready. Had a 715 reservation on a Saturday night for 5. Restaurant was packed. Host couldn't find our reservation on list even though... More

Brian, I apologize for the inconvenience. We clearly dropped the ball on this one. You came in during one of the first weekends we opened and have since fine tuned our seating calculations to avoid such scenarios. I would love for the opportunity to have you and your group in again. Please contact me directly and I will make your... More

Description
Opened in 1996, the original Barcelona, South Norwalk, has grown from a tiny tapas bar seating 30 to a 140-seat restaurant with two sophisticated, beautiful dining rooms and an outdoor patio. The original 40-foot-long, hand-carved walnut bar is still there, as are the young and young-at-heart who populate South Norwalk in the evenings. SoNo Barcelona showcases the old brick and raw steel of the former factory building it inhabits. It's a touch of SoHo in SoNo, with the food and flavors of the Ramblas.
