Great food and location! We've been to a couple different Boqueria locations, as well as other locations, and this one in Soho is our go to.

Good: Came with a largish group (9) and was promptly seated. Main server was very courteous and prompt.

Not good: with group dining, you had to order a prefix option. No one was given any info on what the menu included. Multiple staff members were clearly not trained and kept placing multiples of the same dish at the same spot on the table (so no one else could reach)

Very poor: the wait in between dishes. My goodness the poor chefs were so overwhelmed.... there were easily 20 minutes wait between the more substantial courses. To the point that no one was hungry anymore just halfway through the meal. We also waited 10 minutes for dessert and then gave up on it because it took so long.

Boqueria Soho is the go-to meeting place for my friends and me - every two months. At our last visit we went early (5:45) and sat immediately. Our server was really sweet and made great wine recos. He was patient when we kept chatting and were never ready to order. We had patatas bravas, shrimp, dates and the endive salad. Everything was delicious. Wish we saved room for churros / next time!

I had a great experience during my last visit at Boqueria. 5 of us met up for my birthday and we had a large comfortable table. The waiter was great and gave us excellent wine and dish recommendations. The manager even sent over sparkling wine for all of us with our dessert !

Vegetarian heaven! We had the spinach, eggplant and salad. All were good portions and cooked to perfection. I wish they had a recipe book! Also, the hostess was wonderful. She honored our seating request. I really appreciated that.
You can have a good conversation with a friend and not feel that other people are too close.

Disappointing! As a Spanish food lover I always like to go to different Spanish spots to try their food and this was a miss. Came for a brunch with my partner and the food was not it. It was salty, mushy and just didn’t taste good.
The apps- The patatas bravas were super greasy and not big on flavor, instead they were drenched with the mayo dressing they out on top, the meatballs were still pink inside (gross), the torta was bland, the croquettes were the best app but even they weren’t anything mindblowing.

For the mains we got the shrimp scrambled eggs and the eggs were pretty runny, so it was a very basic dish. Nothing special.
We also got the huevos on chorizo, again the chorizo could’ve been cooked more as the taste didn’t sit well in our mouths. I thought it was impossible to mess up fries but this place did it. They were crispy in a bad way and were another item that was bland.

The churros were okay. Overall the food was just too greasy, bland, and in instances not cooked properly.

The drinks were decent but yea, will not be returning to any locations this restaurant has.

First time at this location (we normally go to Flatiron). Food and service were impeccable as expected. The noise level was a bit high to hear conversation across the table, but my ears aren't that great, so you'll probably be fine!

Great food and service here. I suggest you make a reservation as place seemed full even on a normal Tuesday evening. Bar area was all occupied when we arrived at 6 PM. Food was exceptional and our waiter Emerson made good suggestions and recommendations. Will certainly come again

Service was friendly but a little off. Ordered a bottle of wine that took over 20 min to be brought over. Wasn’t chilled enough and had to be sent back.

Food came quickly, but wasn’t impressive.

Everything was just ok. Nothing that made me want to come back, but also nothing that made me say I wouldn’t.

Went for brunch and the tapas were the perfect portions! The restaurant cooks the tapas according to how many people are dining at the table to ensure everyone is full. The food was flavorful and our waitress made sure our drinks were never empty. They had a nice variety of brunch cocktails to offer. The restaurant itself was very clean. It was also helpful that they were able to make some dishes vegan friendly as one of our friends is vegan. Seemed to have no problem putting certain sauces on the side and etc. Would definitely recommend!

I was dying for some Spanish food and was extremely excited when we got seats at the chef's table/bar. We ordered the chef's menu $60 pp and got a boring tapas selection valued way under $120 for two: nothing stood out except the squid ink fideos which we specifically asked for. The bartender was apathetic at best and did not seem concerned with our experience; we were celebrating a birthday and did not even get a smile from her. The ambiance was lovely but otherwise, I'm looking forward to trying a different tapas experience in Manhattan instead next time.

Food was great! Dinner was pretty affordable. We got a meat and cheese plate, Brussels sprouts, potatoes, cauliflower and steak, on top of 2 pitchers of sangria and it came out to $70/person for three people. Definitely recommend.

Food was mediocre at best. It seemed like everything we ate had been cooked in advance and reheated. Very salty. In particular, the paella and chicken so disappointing . We had the tasting menu (chef’s experience) and there was nothing special about the experience.

Weekend train schedule delayed my arrival. And upon my check-in at the restaurant, my reservation was canceled either by the system or by the host.

Host was really up-right and unfriendly. Everybody else was ok. The waiters and waitresses during dinner time are definitely way more friendly than those during brunch time.

That’s my only unpleasant part of the experience.

Amazing food again! We were here with a large group November 2019. Two of us dined last night. Ordered Prix Fix menu and was outstanding once again. Several of the same items as last November with some new ones added, as this is chef's choice Prix Fix. HIGHLY Recommended. One of my favorite places in NYC, and it is like dining in Barcelona, Spain without the plane ride!

Food was great, we came for brunch around 2:00 pm. The seating was rather tight for 3 as we were placed in a corner. It felt very cramped. Overall aside from the seating arrangements it was a great amount of food at a great price for the brunch menu. We celebrated my birthday and the churros and ice cream was delicious!

The brunch deal was outrageous! 7 dishes family style and unlimited drinks. Every single thing was extremely delicious. Would 100% go back! Only bad thing was our reservation was at 215 and they didn’t seat us till 3, but they gave us a glass of champagne to enjoy while we waited.

Based on our most recent experience, I would not recommend Boqueria Soho. We've had such great experiences in the past (it has been one of our favorite places in Soho for several years!) with great drinks, food and service. The food is still wonderful, but we waited 15 minutes before flagging down a server to get menus (we were there a little before 6pm and most of the tables were empty so it was crazy that no one came by!). Then after we got menus and asked for drinks they disappeared for another 10 minutes!!! We've always enjoyed the sangria but this time it seemed watered down and just wasn't very good...

On a more positive note, the shishito margarita was quite tasty and the food was as delicious as ever! Not sure I'll be back for a while, but will possibly give them another chance...

Nice ambiance. Rude hostess. Time took a bit to be ready and I am a very patient person. Very nice waiters, food is average. A bit expensive for quantity of food. Will return if there are no other options available in the same area
