Super friendly staff and great food. Lunch service was quick but without seeming pushy. Our server Nelly could not have been more knowledgeable on the menu.
Great wine list too!

The experience at this restaurant was wonderful! We had 6 people so we had the chefs fixed menu with the unlimited drinks for 2 hours. The waiter Barry was amazing he was very attentive and noticed one of our party members was running late and waited to out the food order so that way we would get the full 2 hours! Thank you so much for the experience I will totally recommend this restaurant.

Most of the food items are deep fried or sitting in a soup of oil. Not healthy. The price per dish doesnt match the quality received. I wouldnt go here for dinner but to get a glass of wine and one snack not eat a full dinner. Service was good and atmosphere was energetic.

I had a great time at my birthday brunch here. Our server was patient and gracious while we took our time ordering in the beginning, he provided prompt drink refills throughout the meal, and every delicious dish was served hot and fresh. You can end up sacrificing quality of food or drinks at a bottomless brunch, but that doesn't happen at Boqueria, and they provide a generous 2 hour drink time limit versus the usual 1 or 1.5 hours. I definitely recommend Boqueria UES!

We love Boqueria, we go there very often. The brunch deal with bottomless sangria is great! we love every dish that we have tried.
I go to Spain often and have to say that the churros with chocolate are the real thing!

Our fifth New Year's Eve celebration at Boqueria UES! We were welcomed as old friends, had our favorite seating at the chef's counter. Watched all the action as the chef and cooks turned out hundreds of plated tapas. Loved the traditional tapas as well as some new additions. We will be back again!!!

This is unfortunately an Americanized and slightly overpriced Spanish Restaurant. $12 for portion of Patatas Bravas seems a bit too much. Music, a little loud and not from Spain. I don’t think I will be coming back and will never come back here for an experience of authentic flavors from Spain. Quite disappointed as Spain has a lot of unique flavors and differences that are appreciated are sought for in NYC.

Great food and wine. Helpful and reasonably prompt and attentive service. There was a little bit of a wait for our food to arrive and one of the nine dishes we ordered was incorrect. There was absolutely no problem fixing the error. We were well pleased overall and intend to return here or try one of the other Boqueria locations as soon as possible.

I love Boqueria! Food is always excellent, fresh and well-prepared. Always something new and interesting...this time it was the new roasted cauliflower--perfect! Cocktails are always fresh and expertly made and the seasonal Sangria (cranberry on this visit) really refreshing and flavorful. Our Server also did a great job and was knowledgeable and very accommodating. The GM came over to introduce herself and make sure everything was perfect--which it was. Boqueria never fails to offer a terrific dining experience and I recommend it highly.

We had a great evening for our family group of 9, celebrating two 60th birthdays. The restaurant called the day before to tell us that for groups the menu was the chefs menu, a prix fixe (two price points to choose), so no surprise. It turned out to be perfect and avoided long choices. The food was excellent from beginning to end in taste, diversity and amounts. The atmosphere was just right for a birthday and a high level of tolerance for our American and French renditions of Happy Birthday. The service was friendly, informative and diligent. There was a change in shifts and our first waiter took the time to introduce his replacement. Highly recommend!

Great escape back to Barca for my boyfriend and I! Will definitely be coming back :)
The staff was very attentive to each and every table; and I loved the seating arrangement being close to other people-very family style bringing many strangers together! The food was AMAZING; very light and fresh. I recommend the meat and cheese board if you want a little bit of everything as well as the shishito marg ;)

Except for the noise level this Tapas bar/restaurant is a perfect place for lunch or a small or larger dinner. Especially good was the grilled Octopus.

We’ve been there numerous times. We love this place and particularly like sitting at the counter by the kitchen where you can watch the food being prepared. Everything is good from drinks to appetizers to desserts.
