Always one of my go-tos. The food and drinks are fantastic, and the restaurant has a very fun vibe. I'm a fan of the octopus and the shishito margarita. Keep in mind that it can get noisy and the restaurant is a little crowded.

Enjoyed the food and selection of Spanish beverages. Had three superb fish plates. Only drawback was that it was deafening! To the point of being unpleasant so the street was a welcome relief. Lunchtime might be better.

Great, authentic tapas (my wife is a Spaniard and we got to Spain often). And great Americanized tapas, too. Drink service was abysmal. Waited forever to get drinks and our bottle of wine after we ordered. But food came out quick. Oddly, we waited 15 minutes for check after we asked for it. And it was crowded, sure, but it was also a Tuesday so not totally crazy. Great for groups, after work nibble and swig. That being said, we came with our 5 year old and we were fine with him as well.

Seated with ease. We did the bottomless brunch that included unlimited tapas style brunch and drinks (sangria, mimosa, etc). It was a stellar value for $42 considering being in DC. The service was fast, efficient, and the food was always fresh! When in DC, this will always be a place I make sure to visit.

The hostess was amazing and was able to accommodate our last minute addition, which she didn’t have to do and we greatly appreciated... But after that, everything was sort of ho-hum and disappointing. Definitely not the amazing experience that we’ve come to know and love at Boqueria. We sat for awhile before the whole table got their drinks (they came late), food items never came, and for bottomless for two hours, we only had two refills on our drinks.

It was a Saturday early afternoon, and Boqueria was crowded with people lining up for bottomless mimosas and sangrias. We managed to get a table a bit "sheltered" from the incredible noise from the mimosa drinkers. The gambas al ajillo was superb; the calamari, though fried, was better than in most places; our Cava was delicious; and our waitress was super nice! Will definitely be back!

Food was delicious, the service by Bruno was top notch. My only complaint would be with the sangria, it was ok, but quite watered-down.

I love Boqueria. It is one of my favorite brunch places in DC. It has great food, drink, and ambiance. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a great brunch place in DC. It also offers bottomless mimosas and the price is right. It is a must-go place.

Must try the patatas bravas. The fennel salad was light and fresh and a great counterpoint to the heavier potatoes. The tables are pretty close together, but still comfortable.

Nothing special happened for a birthday occasion except charging me $18 for cutting the cake. A compulsory 20% tip was charged, which I don't think the waiters deserve.

Nice place for lunch and also a date with friends or closer. A bit too loud for me for a special date but everything else about the place is great. It is a step up from your everyday lunch spot ambience-wise and food wise. Go to place for that wee something a bit more special.
If they could have a more quiet room I would rave.

I felt like I was back in a Barcelona! The food was simply superb... we sat on the outside patio and enjoyed every single dish we ordered: the roast chicken was divine, the veggie dishes each distinct in flavoring of ingredients, as were the churros stuffed with Nutella...

Boqueria was the perfect destination outside of the office. A co-worker and I were celebrating the births of our girls born one year ago. The food was great - the small plates duo for $29/each was just right. We each ordered to our liking. Our server was great and he even got me to try the Shishito peppers that I just knew were HOT. Well, they were not hot, but lightly salted and sauteed and enjoyable! I save this place for special occasions and will surely be back. Thank you Boqueria for a lovely afternoon and lunch.

Service was slow even though the restaurant wasn't packed. 3 dishes for 3 people out of 8 were extremely last and they came when the rest was almost done. Dessert (part of the course menu) came out really late and to get the check took so long.

Gustavo was the absolute best! I had been to Boqueria before but he took the time to explain every dish in detail and was very conscience of my allergy. And kept the mimosas coming!

Upon arriving to the restaurant you could tell it was a very popular place. There seemed to be a long wait for a table-but were greeted promptly by the hostess. We were quickly seated at our table, it was in the middle of a room, pretty large table for only two of us. So we asked our hostess if we could give up our table for seats at the bar instead. We didn't need all the room, so we sat at the bar. We ordered the octopus, the cured ham, meatballs, corn, and two cocktails. The food came out quickly and the drinks as well. We really enjoyed our tapas, everything tasted so well done. Loved watching the team work and prepare the food from the bar. Would return!
