A word from Boveda
Properly chaotic, casual, and affordable, this speakeasy-style restaurant and bar is the clandestine venue for eclectic music, unique cocktails, and inspired modern South American and Latin-American dishes.

Love the food here, but the
service could be a bit quicker, since it's bottomless and endless. The restaurant was empty, but I still was having to look around for our server for additional items and drinks. The dishes are worth the wait tho! Love the food, and will be back!"

I went to brunch with 4 people
when there were only 3 other tables in the restaurant. The service was not very attentive. Also, when we were contemplating the all you can eat option along with the all you drink the server failed to mention that the entrees al la carte were all tapas. Definitely worth doing the all you can eat since the tapas may leave you unsatisfied. However, they run an all or nothing deal. Everyone has to order all you can eat. Everyone has to order all you can drink. Food was tasty though."

The food was disappointing. Steak
tacos came cold with hardly any toppings on them. My husband and a friend ordered medium steaks - both came rare. Overall the quality of food was not very good, especially considering the prices. The ceviche tuna appetizers was quite good. Recommend pisco sour."

The food was delicious, and the
drinks were spectacular (though the sangria blanca is very very sweet). It's nothing too fancy, and a bit overpriced, but tasty nonetheless. It's a good place to enjoy a meal before a movie at West End Cinema"

My girlfriend and I went to Boveda
for Valentine's Day. There wasn't too much of a crowd and got our table right away. Our server was very nice, but given the occasion, I'm not sure he is usually waiting tables. There was some confusion and my girlfriend and I both got the same entree, despite ordering different items. We didn't mention anything since we were starving and not too picky. The food was excellent, especially the tuna ceviche and the arroz con leche. The sangria was very good and the best drink I've had in a while was a complimentary creamy, white concoction. Overall, I'd recommend Boveda for a weekly dinner night out or for drinks and some lite food. I was hoping for something a little more for a special occasion."

We choose Boveda because it was
close to our hotel and while it was not very crowded, our meal was excellent. I had the pork carnitas and they were delicious and I would order them again. Also had the tomatoe salad which was awesome. The restaurant is beautiful with stone and wood decor. Looking forward to another visit."

My wife and I went here on a
Saturday night the day after valentines day. We arrived around 7:45 to find out they were out of there white sangria, so I ordered the red after my first glass my wife and I ordered a half pitcher. The waiter then told us that was the last if the red sangria as well (not sure why a restaurant rumba out if one of there staple drink on a Saturday at 8:00pm). We then ordered 2 entres off the menu thinking we were going to share them but when they were brought out they were smaller than expected and WAY OVERPRICED, although the food was delicious you would have to spend a fortune to get a complete meal."

The pollo en mole was excellent.
The meat melts in your mouth and the plantain were very tasty. The seafood also was very good. Friendly staff and prompt service. I recommend the pisco sours too."

Location was great however the
food was laughable (even the waitress giggled in embarrassment when she set out order on the table). Our bill came to over $80 and I we had to go to another restaurant for an actual meal. Portions were extremely small and not even good. Mixed drinks were also very weak. Overall, a huge waste of money and I'm surprised it's attached to the Westin."

The food and service was
phenomena. Definitely recommend the brunch special -"

We tried several menu items and
liked them all. The carnitas were particularly good."

Food was pretty good, but
absolutely unremarkable. Presentations were nice, but the implementation didn't quite match the ambition. Sauce on one of the dishes was oversalted, fingerling potatoes on another - on the cusp of being underdone, tomatoes in tomato salad were hard and without flavor. One dessert was a very strange arroz con leche. Tables too small - bar size. Service pretty good, but a little intrusively over-eager. Very noisy: they seem to be trying to be a latin night club with good food aiming at the younger World Bank and embassy crowd. Had a pleasant enough meal but somewhat disappointed. For restaurant week, we expect to eat really, really well. If this is Boveda's best shot, it needs to try harder."

Went for brunch, we were
relatively early and there were only 2 other diners there but they had already run out of some entrees. The bartender wasn't able to make some of the drinks on the menu either. Overall disappointing but not horrible. We tried nearly everything available on the menu and there were only 2 or 3 dishes that were quite good, otherwise the food was fair."

While I do think their menu items
are rather over priced, we did enjoy everything we ordered. The service was very good with the staff being very attentive. It was very nice to order a variety of times for our table to share."

I've spent the last year in Miami
and back and forth from various Latin American countries. I was so happy with this place. First the knew how to make a Pisco Sour which I could not even find in Miami. Second they had a new twist on Chicharon that I had never had that my wife and I loved and man I love all this pork and bacon like. It really is a great blend of foods from various countries in Latin America. As an added perk the salsa is old school, my wife and I dislike more modern salsa. They also have a great mix of other latin music. We will come back to this place fairly often."

We expected to have good Peruvian
food. It was really mediocre and forgettable, not at all like you would find in Peru. Very expensive, tiny plates. But the worst of the worst was the Pisco Sour: I guess they made it the day before, or maybe they just used very low quality (old/artificial lime juice) and stale ingredients. It was tiny, and they charged $12 for that horrible concoction. The tacos were OK, though."
