Boqueria is great for a group! We had 8 people and did chefs tasting menu, family style. They have my fiancé a birthday churro, and catered to our Keto diet as much as possible!

Lunch is lovely at Boqueria — quieter than buzzy evenings and the natural light in daytime is gorgeous on the light wood. Food is outstanding as usual.

It was a birthday dinner for two people. I notified them and the restaurant did not bother to celebrate even with a small cookie. Disappointing.

My colleagues loved the food! The server was nice and helpful, but a couple people were confused as to how much they were ordering so we ended up with more food than we needed. Overall, a great dinner!

Even though the brunch is for 2.5 hours, I felt a little rushed the entire time. You’re able to try everything on the menu which was also a plus. The French toast was my groups favorite! Drinks were good as well.

Their bottomless brunch is a great deal! The food and drinks were SO tasty, especially the French toast! Service was excellent for a busy time during Sunday brunch. Our server and the manager stopped by multiple times to check on us and refill our drinks. Music was really fun with pop hits playing.

First time here for brunch this past weekend. Had a great time- excellent tapas including amazing bread. Waiter was less than cheerful but still great service, refilling the potent mimosas and red sangria frequently. We definitely plan on coming back; we recommend making a reservation.

The waiter was trying to be flirty since we were three women. We didn’t appreciate his style. It’s better to stay professional and not make assumptions about what women want from a service.

Second time at Boqueria. First, we went with family and we oredered many items on the menu including paella. Went on a Saturday night and there was more ambiance with Spanish music. This time, there was american pop music, the croquettes were nothing to rave about...the mushroom were bland and not authentic and the jamón serrano were just ok. Son't like the square shape either. I am used to my Spanish grandparent and my mother's real croquettes wether crab, jamón, cod or chicken. Not at all like the kind I eat at Puerta del Sol in Madrid. The dates were fine but, I have had better in Spanish restaurants in Chicago. The Priorat wine was exquisite. Overall, my husband and I had a good time but, not worth coming in from Old Town Alexandria.

The food and the service at Boqueria is never disappointing. However, the price of these "tapas" in comparison to similar restaurants in DC is "over-priced". One rival restaurant, in particular Barcelona on the 14th street, is equally as good in quality and yet the value and quantity of the dishes is far greater than Boqueria. I understand that Boqeria is located in a more commercial district, whereas Barcelona is far more residential but really there is no need to skimp on the quantity of the dishes, especially if you are going to charge a premium. The fact is that at Barcelona, you get more for less, a double whammy against Boqueria in my opinion, without suffering a loss in quality or service.

Service was great... very fast during Happy Hour. The food quality was good, except for the cheese plate. We ordered that and it came out stale... cheese had consistency of plastic, obviously had sat out for a while. Prices are decent, the atmosphere is modern, and the place is clean.

We went to the bottomless brunch for $39 (bottomless drinks were additional). Service was excellent! The food was good, tapas and small plates, but what was available didn’t seem like a cohesive menu. Several things didn’t seem like they would go together. Overall, it was tasty, but it felt a bit overpriced. We probably wouldn’t eat here again.

Boqueria was selected for a team holiday dinner as we wanted a fun space that we could easily talk but not be in the middle of the room, the food had to be creative and delicious and the cocktails as well. Boqueria delivered on all and we will be back.

Fantastic tapas. We had all vegetarian and each dish was better than the last. The spinach with garbanzo beans was excellent, and the flatbread with mushrooms and caramelized onions fresh and delicious. I’d recommend everything we ordered even though I’m not a vegetarian myself!
