Our server was great, walked us through the wine list and made a great recommendation. The tapas menu is extensive and has something for anyone. The pinchos are a bit overpriced for the size. Tapas portions were acceptable, however. The food was amazing.

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Service level and attentiveness very good. Food was a bit underwhelming and heavy for tapas. Ordered a total of 4 beers, all from craft breweries in New England so should have been fresh. All were tired and oxidized. Realize the focus is probably more on the wine list but if the drinks menu is going to showcase a few dozen craft beers it should be someone's job to manage freshness.

Met with another couple, good friends, very cold night, staff very cordial, knowledgeable. Tappas was new to us so waiter helped with ordering esp. to order a few dishes, then after a few more etc. Food was absolutely delicious and some very fun like the ham croquettes and crisp garbanzo beans. The special of skewered lamb and a lamb pastry. excellent. One guest was not a fan of lamb but found both lamb dishes quite tasty and different in seasoning and preparation/sauces. All the table remarked how they liked the restaurant and was convenient to get to and planning to return. Parking is street only, but no problem. The wine list long although only one indulged but really enjoyed the suggested choice. Excellent choice for almost any occasion, noise quite mellow and very casual decor/dress. Nice bar also.

I was disappointed with the food and drinks. I expected more flavor from the food but most of it was bland. The drinks were not any better. And the portions were very small even with it being a tapas restaurant.

Estragon provided an environment worthy of tapas. We were served by a lovely woman and seated in feline print cushioned chairs. The tortilla española was perfect, just how I remembered it in Spain.

We celebrated my friend's bachelorette dinner here and the servers were very kind and accommodating. I told them we had to leave by a certain time and they were great at bringing everything out...and even checking in on time several times.

I made a reservation 12/29 for my birthday and I can't remember my waiter's name, but he provided some seriously, top notch, service. One person in my party was vegan and another GF and he couldn't have been more patient and accommodating. He gave us options and made really helpful suggestions. When the food came out, he even took the time again to explain what was GF and vegan. I was seriously blown away.

All the food was very good. I especially enjoyed the cuttlefish, which you don't see on many menus. I would recommend it for anyone that needs a menu that can accommodate many types of diets.

Great for a group holiday party. Service and food were great. Its walking distance from Boston medical center where we work . They only open at 5 pm so we had to wait outside for 15 mins.

Food was quite good with very nice selection of tapas. Interesting and well priced wine list with obvious focus on Spain. Service was very competent, if somewhat slow.

Ambience is the problem for this place...cold night and a very cold restaurant. We were seated near a window...our guess about 62 degrees. Restaurant felt dark and empty.

There are three Spanish restaurants in the South End, they need to pick up their game,

The craft cocktails were so unique and curious. We shared every dish ordered. Delicious!! Even dessert was devoured. Our server knew everything about the menu, the drinks and us. He knew just what we'd like to eat and drink. Great time and great food. We'll go back.

For the price, you're better off at Toro or Barcelona. Estragon isn't worth it.

Unfortunately, our evening at Estragon did not make for a pleasant date night. The service was slow and inattentive--looked like the one waitstaff had the bulk of the work while various busers/host did little to help out. I can deal with poor service if the food makes up for it, but it was really the terrible quality food that made for an unfortunate experience. My husband and I orders 6 things and not one was enjoyable. In fact, my husband took one bite of the calamares tapa and couldn't stomach any more. The waitress just asked if we were 'done' with the dish but never asked if something was wrong with it.....isn't it obvious with just one bite missing that the dish was left purposefully? Needless to say, we won't be returning to Estragon.
