The table arrangement is crazy close. I felt I was in a conversation with the table on my left and right. That is my only comments. The food was great and the services too but no privacy at all.

Took my 84 year-old Mom for her birthday brunch here, mid-day on a Sunday. She lives nearby.

The food as very good. The waiter was very good. The restaurant manager came out and photos were taken.

My wife loved the food and we were in the back, so we were able to watch the chefs make the plates of food. Wonderful.

The ONLY negative was how loud and cramped the restaurant is. If you don't mind these things, this is an excellent restaurant to choose from.

My Mom promises to return.

Service is so slow that all the (good) food is slow by the time you get it. This is on top of waiting forever just to put in orders and get coffee. We like this place and the people, but based on the slow service and cold food we’ve encountered the last 3 times, probably won’t be going anymore.

I went to the Chelsea location when this first opened . This UES location appeared to have a great cibe but the food was bland and I just didn’t get why the reviews were any great shakes . The hostess was very warm and helped us right away , however as soon as we started to order ... ugh . The tortilla espagnola is served cold ??? All other tapas places i have been going to this dish is always always served warm . All of our dishes were just not good . Shrimp in garlic / oil was not cooked . Not hot . These are staple dishes . You could see the kitchen working hard and flames 🔥 going up in the air but nothing would come nearly warm to the table . Service was very good . Waiters very nice .
The sangria was so undrinkable . My white wine sangria tasted like white wine and organe juice ? Rose sangria tasted like red wine . Every thing was just so disappointing the restaurant had the appearances of a well run place with food that was gong to come out hot and tasting delicious and with each new little plate you would leave it and be more hungry only to leave another . The people working there are really nice tho. Hostess was super friendly . They tried !

Boqueria is my favorite place in the city to eat. Their service, food, and atmosphere can't be beat. My husband and I always do the tasting menu, either the one with or without the iberico ham and have never been disappointed.

I’ve come for brunch to Boqueria since 2016 and I really think this last one was my worst experience so far. Dishes came before the beverages (even water), the paella was more burnt than usual and they told us to hurry up at some point. Our table was pretty uncomfortable and the place was extra noisy. I still think it’s a fairly good price for a brunch with unlimited mimosas and the other plates were as good as always.

We went for a work group dinner. Prefix chef menu was very good and abundant. Good quality food. Service was excellent. Seats maybe narrowish for an 11 person group but otherwise no complaints. Slightly pricy but worth the experience.

The restaurant was very nice with pub height tables. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Our waitress took the time to explain the menu and made recommendations. The plates are tapas(small dish). She recommended that we order 2 dishes per person. The food was all excellent, very flavorful and delicious. We had the flatbread, grilled calamari, the grilled octopus, the oxtail and the croquets. We also had churros with Nutella for dessert. We loved it all. I’m not a big drinker but I did order the spicy margarita and it wasn’t bad. The table next to ours ordered a pitcher of the white sangria that looked very nice.
I will be returning to try some of the other dishes and the sangria.
I highly recommend this restaurant.

The four of us all ordered the $70 prix fixe Christmas Feast. It was spectacularly delicious. We lost count of how many tapas they served us. We had a pitcher of sangria first then a bottle of white wine to go with the paella. The place was packed but the waiters were very attentive and even looked like THEY were having fun. A little on the expensive side when the bill came but we all agreed worth every penny. Thank you Boqueria for a memorable holiday meal!
