Front Server (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTMay 1, 2017
I worked at one of the higher volume Barcelona's. When it is busy, you have the opportunity to make great tips! Everyone works as a team, and the customers are usually friendly as well.
The hardest part about working at Barcelona requires you to stay on top of the food and wine menu. When you are hired, you are given a manual and a packet of information explaining all of the core menu dishes, and the wines. You must study each item and be able to answer any questions about an item on the menu (ingredients, preparation, cook time, any background info). You need to know the same about any specials. The menu changes slightly every day with 2-5 new specials.
Pros
Shift meal, food and alcohol discount.
Cons
No breaks when busy, late hours

Bartender (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTMarch 25, 2014
In the time I spent with Barcelona I learned how to be a team player and a leader. I was able to provide continual support to my co-workers and educate my clients. I learned how to work with high volume crowds and manage my way through stressful situations. One of the hardest parts about my job was the long hours with limited breaks, but that was compensated by customer satisfaction.
Pros
Free Educational Classes, Involved Staff, Great Environment
Cons
Short breaks, Long Hours into the early morning
