We visited with a friend from out of town. Boqueria Upper East Side is one of our favorites and needed a place near Times Square so decided to give it a try. Food was excellent as always. The Hostess was lovely and was able to accommodate our request seat us ahead of our reservation time as we arrived early. I lowered my review because our experience with our waiter. He was dismissive and had an attitude towards us. This started when we were selecting a bottle of wine. He asked what we were looking for and suggested and $80 bottle. I let him know we’re were looking to spend more like $50 and then he wasn’t too helpful, told me to look at menu for options in price range. For the rest of the evening he barely paused when stopping by our table, including when taking our cards for the check. We had to run after him to make sure he ran them properly.
While this has not been typical of my experiences at Boqueria locations, I felt I had to include in my review so the location has the opportunity to improve this aspect of customer service.

One of our favorite places in NYC , we’ve been to the Soho location many times also . Excellent food and service , great chill vibe at the 40th street location ! Have tried all the other tapas restaurants/bars in manhattan , this is clearly the best of the lot.

Found via tripadvisor and what a find!!! The brunch is excellent value, the staff and our server Keith were fantastic! Last but certainly not least the food was outstanding & sitting just in front of the open kitchen, you could see how much effort & passion goes into the Boqueria experience.

We had a wonderful experience at Boqueria West 40th. It was so hard to limit our selves to just a few choices as everything on the menu looked fantastic. Each dish we ordered was delicious (I would especially recommend the bacon wrapped dates!), the waiter was knowledgeable and helpful and there was a great energy in the room. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a date night or a large gathering of friends.

We enjoyed the restaurant very much. The location was ideal, the food was good, and the service excellent. My only comment is that I wish there was a greater selection of tapas.

Delicious food, but we highlighted we were coming with a pram and they put us in a booth in the middle of a walkway right under the speaker. Noise is pretty loud for younger kids.

Great before theater place! The tapas portions are generous. We shared 5 dishes between 2 of us, and probably could have gotten by with just 4 (and we were hungry). The delicata squash and the cod (not the salted) were true stand outs. The staff was very friendly and responsive. The only disappointment was that we were too full to try the churros. Next time!

I absolutely loved my experience there. We were 40 minutes late for our reservation after getting stuck in traffic and the staff still graciously went out of their way to seat us. The servers are incredibly attentive and the food is outstanding. I highly recommend the croquettes and octopus. I am already planning my next trip back with out-of-town guests.

We were seated right away even that we were early and the rest of our party were running late. Food was excellent and very similar to the tapas that we had in Spain. Quick and efficient service. Will definitely visit again.

This is our fourth time at this location, having frequented the others as well, but this is by far the best! Our party of four had the Chef's tasting menu with Jamon Iberico and every dish was delicious, so much so that I can't decide on a favorite dish. We loved everything. Thank you so much for another great meal!

Has become one of my "go to" spots to meet friends for a drink/dinner after work or during the weekend. It fills up even on a Monday. Wonderful service and food. Interesting wine options. It is a lively atmosphere, but you can hear quite well.

We chose the lunch menu selection that included an appetizer, 4 tapa selections and desert. It was more than we could eat and it was all delicious as usual. Our server was amazingly attentive and delightful as was the bus staff. As usual, a fantastic experience all around.

Well we went for $49 PP chef testing. The selection the chef presented was disappointing. Bread, coldcuts, potatoes and cheese should be tossed. The yogurt spread was OK but not worth the trip. The lamb was dry and overcooked. The grilled squid was OK but nothing special. The salad was tasty and different but too bad it was the high point of the meal. Ambiance was nice but the kitchen help in the background were constantly screaming out orders. I did not understand the reason for that level of noise.

We had the chef's menu as we were a group of 7 and the food was delicious. It kept coming and coming. Amazing tender octopus, lamb, charred corn, warm spinach salad, garlic shrimp (among others) and the grand finale-- paella. Crispy charred rice and a variety of seafood. So much food we took some home for lunch the next day. And the service was amazing. Our waiter made sure that we would be done in time to get to the theatre. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Too noisy for conversation. Food very good but if you are familiar with Tapas in Spain (small dishes) you shoul be warned these are larger.

While tasty, I don’t like cold food, and some (not all, patatas bravas were a delight) was refrigerator cold. Also, if a waiter is looking to get my attention, shushing me is not the way. Stunned, to say the least.

Our waiter was amazing! He was very attentive, friendly and made it an enjoyable experience.

However, upon entering the restaurant just about 10 minutes late, I found the host be quite abrupt and rude when she said “next time you need to call”. A repeat visit is not a guarantee when even one person is unwelcoming.
