The food was sooo good! Our server, David, was great even though it was freezing cold outside. Food is expensive but worth it. So many delicious dishes. I definitely recommend if it is cold that you layer up on the legs and wear some warm socks. The heaters work well for the upper body but not so much for the lower part of the body. Such a nice location on the water as well!
Wonderful Customer Service by Jo! She was friendly, attentive and provided an awesome experience!
I also enjoyed the manager check in!
Great Evening with Excellent food and drinks! I will definitely be back!
Outstanding service and very comfortable and well heated outdoor space.
The best Spanish tapas, wine selection, location and service in the Greater Alexandria area!
Wonderful outdoor dining experience on New Years Eve!
Really nice outdoor dining, felt very COVID safe! Food was yummy, drinks were good.
It was New Year’s Eve and we booked a 9:15pm table last second the night before. Got to have dinner, then move over to the bar and wait for the fireworks. Food was good. Atmosphere was great.
Only negative thing was the music was really loud and we couldn’t hear each other talk.
Amazing place. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a place with wonderful ambience on the water.
We have been here at keast 6 times love the place and food!!
We loved it. Very nice staff. Well run and efficient. Even though it’s on a pier, we were kept warm and dry. Food was wonderful. Fun New Year’s dinner! Well done Barca!
We had an early NYE dinner for two. We commend them and highly recommend Barca for it’s pier dinning. The well heated outside seating on the water is perfection and greatly appreciated. It will be my new go to spot for sure.
Great service and food
We had a reservation and were given a nice table along the waterside. It was cool so they had a screen pulled down and heaters on…. Very comfy. The tables here are quite close together as it is not a very big place, so don’t go looking for peace and quiet! But the music was not very loud so the overall ambience is good, just bustling and fun. My husband and I just got a few beers and tapas - that’s really all they have. Everything here is good and service is fast. This is one of our favorite places to go.
Thanks to the service staff for working on a drizzly, cool night! This place has everything going for it except the food.
Dinner partner and I ordered two drinks and two tapas plates and the place was maybe half full. Our drinks came out quickly, one plate came out quickly and was overcooked, the other plate was forgotten about at first and came out quickly after the staff realized what happened, also overcooked.
I would probably go back for a special occasion becaue it's a great spot right on the water with heated patio and the drinks are a good value so I would drink there and eat elsewhere.
Beautiful setting, the tapas were nothing special and the presentation mediocre, we were outside and the views are great.
Good food, friendly service, and wonderful view on the Potomac
We went for Christmas dinner and the ambiance and service was spectacular. We changed tables before we ordered food and Ale and Emily moved us quickly and seemlessly. They were gracious and professional. David helped us with ordering a wonderful variety of small plates. He knew the menu and provided personable service. We noticed his lovely banter with other tables an s well. Definitely a do over!
It was Christmas Day and very busy so most likely unfair to give a review. I will need to go back to give a fair review. What we experienced was slow service our shrimp dish did not come we informed our server three times we were waiting . We finally gave up and ask for our check instead. Maybe on a less busy day it will be a more relaxed dining experience .wonderful location, friendly staff.
Excellent service from start to finish. Food overall was good but a bit salty for my tastes.
Bummed that they have limited their menu significantly since my last visit but service is still wonderful and so is location as well as the limited food items they did have on the new menu.
You may think it will be too cold to eat in the winter on the river - but heaters and wind stoppers make it the perfect outdoor place to dine and avoid covid.
Had dinner at Barca last sunday with my wife for a speacial night. The service was great and exceptional. The night was nippy and the dine area is not fully enclosed,
We planned on visiting the place on warmer nights with friends and family.
Extremely welcoming and friendly staff, great drinks and a diverse menu. Love the place.
Music loud. Seated initially close to other people despite plenty of tables. Food was salty. Food seemed rush. Server was friendly.
Barca is a true favorite—summer and winter. I love the seasonal wintery cocktails and food. Plus, the fresh air is sooooooo key for my enjoyment and comfort level dining in a relatively crowded location.
Great food and excellent service! Danny was great and provided excellent advice on wines
Great first time experience. They close early in the winter months at 9 but allowed to keep drinking past then.
We had a great dinner on the pier. The staff were fantastic and the food delicious. I don't regularly go down to Alexandria, but Barca (and Ada's) are reasons to travel there.
Great experience. Awesome waiter who had great energy and recommendations since it was our first time.
Thought the food was good but only bc I’m adventurous. The prices I thought were high, even though I know it’s how tapas work. We split 3 plates and a dessert and I’m definitely still hungry.
You can’t beat that location and the view. That’s for sure. However it is very pricey for pretty small tapas but it is still very filling. The drinks however were amazing, pretty to look and very good to drink! Will definitely come back once the weather is nicer
A lot of pork and fish items which I don’t eat, but the options I did choose was good. Staff was great!
Max, the bartender is awesome and knows how to make some fine cocktails1
Dinner with my daughter.
Great food, great service, great location, great environment. Have been there multiple times in 2021; my wife and I love the place.
Good food, only thing that was a miss was the broccolini
So relaxing, warm heater from abode keeps you comfortable on a cold day and the views of water makes for a great experience.. oh yeah the food is very good
David exceptional customer service. Drinks only a delicious Bloody Mary and Sam Adams. Great views .
This place was perfect for a date night! Will definitely be returning!! Just a heads up, tapas mean small portions so order multiple!
Great.evening in the city
