    Food was delicious! We ordered a lot from apps to desserts. And all the servers - especially food runners and bussers were EXTREMELY attentive, kind and also professional, and we highly appreciate their service level!! They made us enjoy our time and food a lot more. Besides, those receptionists could be better.. Either friendly or professional manner can be appreciated. Overall, it was great dinner experience at Boqueria.

    Unfortunately, a very large and extremely loud alcohol fueled birthday party group made it nearly impossible to hear even a shouted conversation with the person I was sitting next to let alone with the server. She did her best under the circumstances. We received our food as ordered which we did in Spanish in order to communicate effectively. The food was as expected but limited and expensive. Frankly, for the money, we could have had a better meal elsewhere. When our original very competent server went off duty, the replacement basically ignored us unless we seriously flagged her down. In hindsight, we should have sat outdoors, but the day was quite hot and vehicle traffic was lively and close to those tables.

    This was my first visit to boqueria and i had the broccoli tapas dish and the asparagus tapas dish along with the shishito pepper marg. All were delicious. The marg is only improved by swapping out the ice “pebbles” for one cube or sphere (the ice melted relatively quickly), otherwise, wonderful experience.

    Good choice if you are looking for Spanish tapas. The waiter was especially helpful when making the best choices on the menu. The outdoor seating was pleasant, although there was no need for the loud music.

    For a tapas restaurant I felt the menu was limited. The food was good but not exceptional and was overpriced for the serving size. Service was slow but it was very crowded and our waitress was new. It was very noisy inside so we sat outside.

    Very authentic Spanish food. It’s easy to get carried away when ordering. Best dishes were the lamb skewers and the shrimp. Beware the difference between a small order of paella and a large order is huge… wonderful staff and pleasant restaurant.

    Restraint felt cramped. This could be because there was no outdoor seating since our was a cold day. The service could have been better. The server was pretty inattentive. The food was very good. The ambiance and service just did not match the price point.

    We waited almost an hour past our reservation time to be seated, yet people who walked in after us with reservation times later than ours were being seated after 10 minutes or so. When I asked why we had been waiting so long, I was told that the table reserved for is was still paying—they’d told me they were paying when we arrived 40 minutes prior. When I brought this up, the hostess told me that they can’t just kick them out if they haven’t paid their check yet. Another hostess told me that they seat people according to how long they’ve been waiting, which I told her was simply not true. We were finally seated after that, but we were all pretty annoyed by that point. The reservation system is incredibly problematic and inefficient. The restaurant clearly doesn’t have the infrastructure or capacity to manage as many reservations as they allow to come through the system, so they should decrease spots. Otherwise, the food was great and our waitress was a sweetheart. I’d go back, but not during such a busy time as weekend brunch.

    On a rainy night in DC, my wife and I were looking for something close to our hotel. Having visited Spain, we also missed some good tapas. Boqueria was an excellent choice. We started with the meat and cheese combo appetizer, which included some excellent Pan Tomate. Gambia’s and Potates Bravas satisfied our Spanish fix. We had a couple more plates, having ordered too much. My wife really enjoyed her blue cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon. Smoothing out the whole dinner was a pitcher of Sangria Roja. Too much for two people, but we were walking.

    Loved Boquiera! Always a good spot for Tapas. Sangria pitchers can be a pit pricey in terms of ‘bang for your buck,’ but always have a great experience. Would definitely recommend for a vibey dinner or drinks occasion.
