Despite a 2 hour wait we had an unbelievable meal. When we asked about a gluten free menu the first question they asked was do we need to be concerned about cross contamination? On the GF menu they wrote separate pan and use GF bread. No issues and didn’t get sick.

Went here for my birthday. I’d say that about 80% of the menus is or can be made gluten free (I even had dessert). The food is pretty good and the staff is knowledgeable. I’d definitely go back.

They have a lot of gluten-free options, I wish they had more “vegan gluten-free” options. If they did, we would go there more often. The staff is very knowledgeable and courteous. They work with you. Manager and staff are very friendly!

I inquired about the delicious gluten free bread served with some of the tapas and was told the chef comes in to bake it homemade and fresh every morning-it is to die for! Many delicious options here.

Staff was incredibly helpful. The marked up the menu to show what we could order. No dedicated fryer, but most of the menu can be made gluten free. The waiter followed the order to the kitchen just to confirm everything was ok with the staff. Best service I've ever had.

One of the best GF options around. They are very careful with allergic guests and sometimes have a manager oversee the order. They offer GF bread which is pretty good and have a knowledgable staff with extensive menu. Some of the best GF tapas are hangar steak, potato tortilla, fish a la plancha, garlic shrimp, cauliflower and chorizo w/figs. They do an excellent brunch as well, def try the GF fried egg sandwich.

Great food! Very knowledgeable staff. They highlighted a menu with gluten free options - there were many! Rare to find gluten free charcuterie. They offered a separate plate of olive oil for the gluten free bread. All in all a great experience.

Server circled all “safe items” on the menu without hesitation. Even the cheesecake and chocolate cake were dessert option! Yum. I didn’t get sick even on a very busy Saturday night when contamination mistakes would be most likely.

Food and service were great. They marked up my menu to show what items were not safe or had possible cross contamination. Plenty to choose from and everything was delicious. The leeks dish and the mushrooms with goat cheese were my favorites this time.

This is a Tapas restaurant and they were so very aware of making sure my food was was GF. They change their menu and occasionally. When they found out I had celiac’s they took my menu and crossed out what I couldn’t have. That made me so confident that what I was ordering was GF. Food was amazing, staff was great. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Our sever Zachary was incredibly helpful. He took my menu and marked what could be done GF and how it would be modified (roasted s fried). Zachary’s knowledge took the worry out of eating out for me and I really appreciate it. The food was delicious and came out timely. Definitely will return.

The server will mark up a menu for you. They will even ask whether you are sensitive to cross contamination and modify depending on that (eliminating things typically cooked on shared surfaces). The server even offered to get chips from bar taco if I wanted that instead of the bread they bring out.

Waiter immediately went to talk to the manager, who went to talk the chef, when I mentioned my allergies. They marked up the menu noting everything I could eat and if any modifications were needed and asked about my toleration of cross contamination. When I said I was sensitive they said they could use a separate fryer for some of the items. Food was super delicious (chorizo, octopus especially) and the atmosphere is fun (but loud). Will definitely go back.

They have a GF fryer. Since it’s tapas and we (party of 4) order a ton of food I was hoping that when each dish was brought out, the runner would announce if it was GF or not but that didn’t happen. They brought out the mussels with slices of bread right on top. The manager then came over and was very apologetic. I do wish the entire operation had better communication practices. Food was delish as always.

No separate gluten free menu, but our server made a point of immediately asking about any allergies or food sensitivities, and when I mentioned gluten he immediately suggested certain items on the menu and said he'd reiterate with the kitchen. Very pleased!

Great stuff. Full restaurant on a Wednesday night, so I sat at the bar. The bartenders asked the chef to mark up a menu with GF options, and there were at least a dozen tapas, a few salads, and more. Great service and delicious food.

I can't assess all locations of this restaurant chain but the one in Fairfield CT has plentiful gluten free options, particularly the tapas. The wait staff is generally (though not always)knowledgeable about celiac and make great suggestions as to appropriate choices. When they aren't helpful, the manager is easily summoned and accommodating. The food is good and there's great variety.

I became a Barcelona regular after attending my company holiday party here in 2013. Since then, I've been here easily 20 times over the past year, and have never once had an issue with GF. The majority of the items on the menu are naturally gluten free, and the ones that aren't do not pose an issue for cross contamination. The staff is generally speaking very knowledgeable about the menu, and if the waitperson does not know, they ALWAYS have asked the chef. GF considerations aside, the food and service are consistently excellent here, and while there is always a core set of staples on the menu, every week there are new specials and creations, none of which have ever disappointed. Can't recommend Barcelona enough.
