Estragon Tapas Bar: your slice of Spain in the South End. Estragon is owned and operated by Julio de Haro and Lara Egger. Chef Julio was born and raised in Madrid and his cuisine reflects the fresh simplicity of traditional Spanish fare. Many of the dishes are family recipes, served straight from Abu Luisa's kitchen to your table. To complement Estragon's extensive tapas menu, you'll find a unique cocktail list featuring oft' forgotten classic cocktails, a selection of over twenty local and craft beers, and an all-Spanish wine list with more than 100 references spanning both the country's established and emerging wine regions. An evening at Estragon is unlike any other dining experience. The decor-- art deco meets vintage chic-- provides an inviting, sophisticated setting perfect for any occasion.

Good restaurant, quality tapas with very large portions. A dish or two were a miss, but had some really good ones. We went in the middle of the winter, it was really cold so I would say bring a sizeable sweater.

The service was fabulous and the food outstanding. Every item were tried was masterfully crafted and flavor combinations were fascinating (stuffed dates!). We had the Sol y Sombra and several of the small plates along with a pitcher of sangria. Will be returning soon to try more.

Mother/daughter evening out. Originally seated at a table for two and asked to move to a table for four since there were many open tables. Hostess was kind enough to move us. Drinks and food were great. Servers were friendly and helpful Was just a perfect evening. Highly recommend this restaurant

This was our third time eating at Estragon. The food, the value, and the service are all very outstanding. This feels like a local restaurant but also has the authentic feel of a true Spanish tapas bar. Sahil and Isabella complete the ambiance and very attentive service, and are true professionals. Highly recommended!!!!

Very yummy, good portion size tapas. Flavors are not too over powering. Drinks were unique and not too sweet. Service was slow and drinks took a while but the food came at reasonable times. Espresso martini was great

Love Estragon! The waiters are sweethearts. The food fabulous (favorites: lamb chops; brussels sprouts; fried artichokes). The atmosphere is so relaxed and lovely. Great place for conversation. Just a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Don't skip the chocolate mousse with olive oil and sea salt.

Estagon was excellent. I had an outdoor reservation and when the forecast called for rain I received a morning text offering to move my party indoors which alleviated so much stress as open table had no available seating. They also accommodated my requests to change number in party with ease. The food, ambience and service was outstanding. Definitely a spot i and my family will return to. A terrific spot for celebrating.

Godawful! Let me list the ways: First, the table we were seated at was rocky and we had to move to another table. Then, it took forever for our server to appear. On a Thursday when the restaurant was nearly empty. Then the cocktails (we ordered 4) ranged from barely drinkable to utterly disgusting. We were starving and ate the food quickly. That’s not a reflection on the quality of the food. Finally, one of our food orders never arrived despite being told twice that it was “on the way”. When we finally gave up on the food order and asked for the check, we got a mind-boggling “oh, we thought you canceled the order”. Saving grace: two drinks were taken off the tab. Verdict: never going back.

Worst service ever. We drove up from CT to take our daughter and her friends from college out to dinner and even though it was not crowded, they brought out our entrees one at a time over the course of an hour. By the time my meal came out everyone else was done eating. We had to chase down a waiter to get dessert. Truly disappointing.

Staff was nice but everything from cocktails to a lack of knowledge of the wines plus our first bottle was not corked but had gotten too hot. Our glasses were dirty & when we order 4 small tapas plates , they were very disappointing / not anything authentic in their style, prep or taste. We left and went to a different Spanish restaurant named Toro which is amazing.
