Great new addition to Old Town Alexandria. Don’t miss the Serrano ham croquettes. Beautiful views of the river. Great vibe.
Food was just okay. Menu is limited. You go here for the view.
Thank you for reviewing our restaurant. We want to apologize for our dishes not being excellent and the menu being limited.
Fun new place on the water! Just what Old Town needed!!!
This is probably the best outdoor venue for getting together with friends that I've been to in the DC area. Lots of space, attentive service, and a well-rounded food and drink list.
Many thanks to the employee who helped me retrieve my phone from my car! That was service well beyond my expectations.
Note that I didn't order any food, but others did and seemed to be enjoying it.
Amazing atmosphere and delicious food. I love coming here as it makes me feel like I am on vacation
Great atmosphere but tge food was terrible would not recommend
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us Jacqueline. We'd like to apologize for our dishes not being outstanding as it's what we strive for on a daily basis. Would you mind sending us an email to arp@rockawaypr alongside a screenshot of your review so we can make things right?
Our server, Alex, was fantastic and made great recommendations. Food was excellent and draft beers were perfectly cold in chilled glasses.
Great experience. Amazing food and cocktails!
Outstanding! Wonderful addition to the Old Town waterfront!!! Super service and delicious food!! Described by my guest as “stylish”!
Food is great and the location is the best in Old Town.
I'll start out by saying that the food is very tasty, and the service was excellent. We were there on a very cold, windy day, and our server did what he could to help us mitigate the weather (closing the wall, etc.)
With that said, I think the menu is limited given that it's a tapas / wine bar. There aren't very many items to select from on the food menu, and the wine menu is even less Only 5 wines on red wine menu, and no vegetables at all.
All in all, I think this place is all about the experience vs. having an outstanding meal.
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed our dishes but we're sorry that our menu is not as expansive as you'd prefer.
A great new spot in Old Town! Love being able to grab drinks with a water view and this is perfect for just that. Drinks are unique, which I love, and the food was so outstanding! Loved the Jumbo Shrimp and the Marinated Goat Cheese!
Our new fav spot!!! We felt like we were in Europe and Can’t wait to return!
Nice ambiance on the waterfront
Small plate dining on the Potomac. Very nice!
Thank you for your kind words. We're glad you enjoyed our restaurant.
Stunning view, great wine, great service. The tapas menu has some nice selections but needs a few more veggies - something like spinach, cauliflower, a salad with sherry wine dressing. I'd love to come back and see some lighter fare.
Thank you for taking the time to review Barca. It's a pleasure to hear that you and your friends has a terrific time while dining with us. We do apologize for not having as many veggie/light options as you'd like, but we have informed management of this.
A festive and beautiful setting on the Potomac. Delicious cocktails and wonderful tapas - a nice variety from grilled octopus to delicious croquettes. A memorable night in Alexandria.
Overall our experience at Barca was lovely. We had a great table, the service area and the food was wonderful. My complaint for the restaurant is that for a Spanish restaurant to only have one Spanish wine on the wine list at Pier was a little disappointing, plus the pour of the wine was very small for the price charged. We would recommend it to friends, but letting them know what to expect.
Thank you for reviewing our restaurant Ron. It's great to hear that you enjoyed both the food and the service. We hope to see you again soon.
Food was great! I was pleasantly surprised. We made a last minute early dinner/late lunch reservation and were seated in what I believe to be the best table, in the corner with an unobstructed view of the water. Our server was okay, could have used a little more interaction and he apologized every time he came by the table due to taking very long between visits.
Thank you for reviewing our restaurant Sean. It's great to hear that you were able to join us for a last minute meal and enjoyed your experience with us. We hope to see you again soon.
Depending if one prefers sun or shade but so far as we could tell anywhere is good water views are not lacking
Awesome. Delicious. Fun cocktails. Great staff!
Finally a restaurant on the water for the first time since 1953. Great place, great views! Why did it take Alexandria so long to make this happen? Someone build a few more please!
Music was loud and we asked it to be turned down.
Wait staff was very nice.
Thank you for your review. We're glad that our staff was able to lower the music to accommodate you during your visit.
Perfect Sunday afternoon to enjoy the waterfront, a few drinks, and good food. The music is always too loud there and it’s hard to talk but we go with the flow. One of our favorite hangouts when we feel like splurging! We tried the mushrooms today.....yummy!
A beautiful summer day overlooking the water, with delicious food and interesting wines - what’s not to like! Excellent service too.
The perfect spot to sip sangria on a nice day. I will definitely be coming back to try more items on the menu! The croquettas and stone fruit sangria were the standouts. Also tried the calamari and mushrooms which were tasty as well. The ambiance and service were outstanding ! Our waiter was kind and very knowledgeable
We had a reservation and still had to wait. After 15 mins, we decided to just ask for a seat near the bar so we could be served. Bad mistake. The service in the bar area was awful. It took 15 more minutes just to be addressed and then an additional 20 to get our drinks. Not to mention we saw our server just once for our drink order and then had to flag them down after an hour for our receipt.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention Courtney. We want to apologize for the service you received while at our restaurant. This is not the norm nor is it acceptable, as we pride ourselves in making sure our guests leave more than satisfied. We hope you join us once again so we can turn your experience into a positive one.
One of my new favorite places to venture to. You can't go wrong being on the water, great atmosphere and drinking.
Great place 2nd time there and have upcoming reservations. A great addition to Old Town
After all the rave reviews I’ve been patently waiting to try this restaurant, but was greatly disappointed. First, it is not covid friendly in the least. The tables are extremely close and the servers all wear their masks below their noses.
Second the food. It is below average taste and quality at best. For the price it was extremely sub par. I understand this was not dc but with comparable if not higher prices I was expecting it to be just as good. It definitely was not. The patas bravas and the steak were great the rest I would definitely pass on. The food is pretty for average for Spanish tapas.
Furthermore if you are seated under the overhang it becomes so loud if one single part is loud because of the echoing.
On the upside the drinks are good and view is beautiful.
If you’re looking for authentic tapas or even good service save the money you’ll spend and go into dc. I understand it’s new and I really hope it turns itself around soon as old town could really use some restaurants. With the covid cutting corners it’s currently taking I would advise waiting to try it until the pandemic ends for your health.
Thank you for providing us with your feedback Katie. We would like to apologize for this experience you had with us at our restaurant. At Barca we take great pride in not only providing a safe dining experience, but also excellent food that leaves our guests wanting to return. This time it was not the case. We have taken your comments and provided them to management, and hope you join us once again to turn your experience into a positive one.
Great food, great view, great service. Can’t wait to go back!
We went on Friday, 11:30am. A bright, sunny, very windy, warm day. Thankfully, Barca had put up see thru wind barriers all along the sitting area. So, very pleasant! It was our first time. We knew to make reservations and glad we did as it quickly filled up. Kim was our waitress. She was excellent! So professional, fun, and knowledgeable about the menu. She gave us great recommendations and we got them all . Each dish beautifully presented and so yumm-a-licious! We started with 3 dishes and then added 2 more. Kitchen was speedy and each dish was warm/hot. Our favorites: Roasted Mushrooms, Gambas Al Ajillo jumbo shrimp, and Prime beef tenderloin. Hubby got the Super Tuscan wine and gave it a big thumbs up. Looking forward to another visit so we can eat our way thru the rest of the menu!
Gorgeous setting on the water. Small plate portions were more generous than expected.
Thank you for your review. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the view and the size of our dishes as well.
Great location and seated right near the water. It was a nice spot outside and was glad to be able to make a reservation for outside seating. Food was good and came out quickly, Server pulled down mask and stood close to us when taking orders and chatting which was a bit disconcerting.
Beautiful pier. Great wine. Food is a little greasy but may have been what we ordered (shrimp, potatoes)
Thought it was a great place to be on a warm breezy Spring evening with friends. The cocktails were great. The food isn't knock your sox off, but the menu choices were great and there is nothing wrong with the food. It was ill good. Definitely will go back when its calms down. Had to make reservations for a Tuesday night two weeks in advance.
Thank you for reviewing our restaurant Jason. It's a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed dining with us. Hope to see you again soon.
The experience was great, but the server was very busy so we had to wait longer than expected to be served. The place is amazing and the food is good. I think the music could be better and louder.
Thank you for reviewing our restaurant. We're glad that you were able to enjoy our dishes but do apologize for the long wait. Hope to see you again soon.
We enjoyed the delicious food & cocktails. Kim was awesome! We order everything she recommended .
The only thing, the cheese cake was served with strawberries.. I am allergic to strawberries & it was noted on my reservation.
