This is a real find not far from the heart of the theater district. We had never thought to go here,nbut read about the platter of three kinds of grilled meats (parillada) that makes a nice main course that two people can share. The meat was perfectly prepared, and delicious it comes with three different dipping sauces, all of which were great. And some grilled scallions and peppers accompany the meat. For appetizers, we had a flatbread with mushrooms, which was outstanding, and the traditional potato tortilla, served cold, and that was very good too. Nice, attentive and friendly service. And we really liked the big backed, chairs (like bar stools) that turned out to be extremely comfortable. Only minor complaint is the schlep to get to the restrooms, that are located in the adjacent hotel on the lower level.

Reunion spot for lunch. Fabulous roomy table for six near the back of the restaurant. Just wanted a couple of bites so we shared salads, flatbread etc. Perfect amount of food and very tasty. Nice menu selection. We will return!

Boqueria (and its sister NYC locations) have quickly become some of our favorite casual eateries when we are visiting New York. Well prepared Spanish classics at reasonable prices with a fun bar and a decent selection of wines. The potatas bravas are possibly the best I've tasted anywhere. GIve me plate of those tasty critters and a pan of sizzling garlic shrimp with a glass of Albarino and color me happy.

Food and service was excellent. Only thing I wasn’t happy with was the loud music. Speakers above the tables. Although quite understandable due to the area - Times Square. Really don’t expect it be a quiet dining experience. Still, you can hear if anyone’s talking at your table which is important.

Food was very good, but service left something to be desired. Multiple waiters standing around chatting instead of taking orders. My order was only taken once we flagged down someone and drinks weren’t replenished since no one came back to check on us.

The Sunday brunch special is absolutely worth it for groups of 2+. The food is delish, and the vibes is chill and relaxed, yet not overly busy. The place and seating is a bit tight. But that is to be expected for NYC.

It was my wife's B-day and the Maitre couldn't find our reservation which was under my wife's first and our last name. That didn't make sense because they still had our last name , phone number and Email.
I've been to many restaurants where they were able to find our reservation under either my wifes or my name.
They made us feel very uncomfortable like we were trying to scam a reservation. They let us sweat it out, eventually got us a table but said we would have to leave by 10:00.
Food was excellent. Waiter was excellent.

Booked a table for Sunday brunch and were very well pleased. Mostly went with the recommendations of our server as it was our first time to the restaurant. We would be hard pressed to select our favorites but the patatas bravas and croquetas de setas stood out as particularly tasty. For the main, we chose the breakfast paella which was flavorful with good texture and a very generous portion however we would likely try something else next time as everything seemed to be worth the calories. Also, the sangria stayed ever present in our glasses - many thanks to Richard for making our first trip to Boqueria memorable and oh so tasty!

Our waitress spilled a drink on my husband and we cleaned up most of it with our napkins. She had to be asked to replace napkins, plates and place settings. She didn’t even comp us us for the spilled drink.
Otherwise food and service was fine.

The food is amazing. A true place for tapas in midtown Manhattan. Authentic, tasty food delivered in impeccable presentation. The ambiance is good too. The only “complaint” I have is about the booths. The entire restaurant has booths; these booths -while the seating is comfortable- are tight and high. Seems like they have built this restaurant only for young and thin people. The 2-3 tables with chairs that can actually be adjusted to the tables are high tables as well. Better than the booths, but still problematic for shorter, older, and heavier people.

Recheck your credit card charges. Three people attended the dinner and after review of our respective credit card charges, two of us, discovered that the charges were double the cost of the dinner. When inquiry was made to the restaurant, at first the call was not answered by the manager, but when we finally spoke with the manager about the charges, he advised that it was a "mistake." He claimed that they had put the total price of the meal as the "tip" which was added to the price of the meal. While it seems as a mistake, it was difficult to believe that this was a mistake when two of the patrons had the same thing occur on their credit cards. Also, in the past, the food at other Boqueria locations was excellent. At this location the shrimp was oversalted, lamb was okay, and overall service was not as good as it had been in the other locations.

My husband had visited your restaurant before and raved about the food. We were not so happy this time. The patata bravas were way too overdone. The olives were way to vinegary. The lamb skewers were tasty. I can not remember what else we ordered, but it wasn't very good. I actually felt a bit sick after eating the food. Very disappointing.
