They had a back patio open (new due to COVID) that was super quiet and cute. Tortilla española was amazing as well as the empanadas. Thanks Estragon for another lovely dinner.

Estragon was my first indoor dining experience since the pandemic (thanks 2020).
The service was polite and prompt, social distancing was well done and felt safe, and the food was very very good.

They have added outdoor seating on the back patio, away from traffic. It is much quieter and intimate. The food has recently been outstanding.

Amazing Service, Food, and Outdoor Seating. We tried the lamb, steak, scallops, croquets, and the toast. Delicous. Also for drinks the Hibiscus Margarita and Fig Old Fashioned were perfect. Book the reservation!

My friend and I dined outdoors to celebrate my birthday. Estragon has a lovely social-distance setup with their planter boxes and the staff were all very meticulous about masks etc. The food was great. I'm a regular to Estragon and the quality of the food has been maintained or is even better than ever.

We didn’t get the waiter’s name, but he was wicked nice and professional. We are a Black Lesbian couple and notice that waiters don’t always go above and beyond for us. This waiter made us feel right at home. And the food was great! Delicious tapas and amazing drinks. Highly recommend for date night with your love!!!

We had a lovely date night at Estragon - we had both of their specials, which were amazing, and several others of the small plates which were also great. We sat outside and felt well taken care of. Definitely recommend.

Wonderful experience. Excellent service, very attentive, not pushy with upselling, kept drinks full throughout meal. Drinks were phenomenal, my favorite was the “Moor’s Last Sigh.” Food was tasty, and you get a decent amount for your money. Took the Caco home because we could not eat it all. Highly recommend.

First time dining since quarantine world and I’m very happy to have gone here. Very few tables, well spaced apart and minimal contact with the waiter. Could work on the ambiance given that it was outside. No barrier between the diners and people walking by. Great experience overall!!

4 of us came for the dine boston special and we loved the multitude of choices. Chicken empanadas with sofritos was great and very filling. Crab cake minis were tasty. Dates with blue cheese were surprisingly good. The mini lamb chops with cauliflower mash were delicious. The fried calamari were yummy but a bit too salty. The pork cheeks were melt in you mouth fork tender and everybody grabbed bread to get at the gravy at the bottom of the bowl. The egg with oyster mushrooms and Iberica ham was unique. The umami and the earthiness of the oysters was great. The baby octopus were good although not my favorite in general. Crispy and not too chewy. Love the amount of choices you get at a Tapas joint. Service was very good and you have to love a place where the drink menu is 4 times larger than the food menu. Funky art decor atmosphere adds to the mood. Love this place.

The food was subpar. A lot of oil and not a ton of flavor. Best dish was the chicken empanadas except it needed a sauce. The octopus was very fishy. The free bread should also come warm or toasted! A lot felt like missed opportunities to finish a dish properly. Service was ok, we saw him every 30 mins and forgot our dessert drinks. Would prefer Barcelona for tapas.

We had a delightful evening. The waitstaff were helpful and attentive. Nine plates came out perfectly timed and beautifully presented. Very impressive! The waiter patiently explained dishes and wine pairings, so w came away learning a little more about Spain, too.

My husband and I visited this restaurant during Dine Out Boston. I will say that I was pleased with their selection. Their drinks are a bit overpriced for the amount that they give you. The food was good. The service was lacking. They continuously kept bringing out my husband's food first and I was forced to wait there for up to 7 minutes for mine to come. This is the first time I have ever seen this at a restaurant. I am used to the table's food coming all at once.

Great food, service and atmosphere! Perfect backdrop to our double date. We weren't an easy group to cater to - 1 gluten free and 2 vegetarians - but there was more than enough on the menu to keep us all happy.

This is a great family-owned restaurant with a solid wine list and great attention to detail. If you want to skip the trendy new hyped places and experience real food made by a Madrid native, do yourself a favor and go here.

Great southend neighborhood Tapas spot serving Madrid style Pintxo's. On Friday nights ask for their bartender Sahil to make a Temporanillo wine recommendation.
