The restaurant itself is beautiful. The tapas are pricey, but I promise you they’re so delicious you won’t mind. Keep in mind their are no large entrees everything is pretty tiny, but savory!!

Cozy vibes in a large open space and perfect for a date night. Two tapas per person and an appetizer was a perfect amount of food to share and the churros s'more for dessert was truly delightful on a cold winter night. I would come back in a heartbeat especially before a show at the BAM theater.

I am glad we were able to try this place before they closed. We went for the brunch feast and were skeptical about the amount of food that would be served. The restaurant tailors each tapa to the specific size of the group so the party could share family style. We were pleasantly full after the three courses (tapas, entree, dessert). For anyone going to one of their other locations, make sure to try the 'croquetas de setas'. They were the bomb. So delicious. We had two per person, once I tried one of mine, I made sure my other one was the last thing I ate at the table and this is coming from someone who usually does not like mushrooms that much. Great spot to eat with your friends and relax on a Sunday before you start the work week. Will make sure to visit the other locations in the city.

I had a wonderful birthday dinner at Boqueria last week. The wine was fantastic as was the food (especially the garlic shrimp and the spinach). I’m sad that this location is closing... the staff has always been warm and welcoming.

Boqueria's theater menu is a very good deal if you are headed to BAM or to TFNA. Tapas are always tasty, sometimes inventive, and the service is very very good. Though I always go for the Cava, the wine list seems extensive, and the mixed drinks are lovely.

I went to Boqueria before a show at the BAM. The main dish I ordered did not come after more than one hour me and my party ordered. I left hungry. The appetizers were mediocre and the wine glasses we got ridiculously scant. The worse thing a restaurant can do is not feed you, that is their job!

Very good food, but very expensive and even for tapas, the portions are small. Sangria is great and a good value if you share a pitcher with friends, but very expensive per glass. Nice atmosphere, but unless you have lots of money to burn, this place is only good for a rare treat.

first time here and before a BAM Harvey performance. they were very accommodating helping me to get a low table since I recently had surgery and would have found the high stools hard to maneuver. wish they had more low lying seats by the way. at any rate the food we ordered was excellent, the service was cordial and attentive and we will definitely return before another BAM performance where we are friends.
