Most every choice we shared was delicious. Loved that our waiter was honest on how much to order. Paella was delicious!

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.

Too noisy on weekends due to brunch menu that encorages young people to attend the restaurant and drink as much as they can....

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!

The dishes were served up quickly, despite every table being occupied on a busy Friday night. We ordered several rounds and never felt rushed to finish. We ended up having a wonderful two and half-hour meal!

Great service but the amount of food is small and didn’t really blow us away. My husband and I had spent a lot of time in Spain and we were going for nostalgia but didn’t really get that here.

I loved all the brunch food that I tried. I deduct one star because the crochets (my favorite dish) was excluded from the bottomless brunch menu.
