We had 5 entrees. At first bite all tasted great. How ever as we moved through each dish they were over oiled and way over salted. To the point they were all close to uneddible.

All/each/every aspect of this dining experience was wonderful. Adjacent hotel lobby makes for a serene and
comfortable waiting area for your party to assemble before reservation time. The courteous service professionals who took care of us answered our questions, clarified our doubts, suggested and guided us toward wonderful food and beverage choices. Three of us ordered seven items and each was better than the next. In the meat category, the hangar steak, jambon Iberica and lamb meatballs were absolutely scrumptious. Also highly recommend the croquettes, arugula-pear salad, garlic shrimp and the $60 bottle of yummy red wine. Even the bread was special; feather light and flavorful. Spacious lay-out with open working kitchen and comfortable spacing between tables, peppy music, attentive service. So much to love. Thank you Boqueria for a marvelous evening and special family reunion. Hope to return again sometime.

Maitre’d was not friendly, was initially taken to an extremely crowded table with little space to sit. When asked to move to a different table, was given the “chefs table” right in front of the kitchen which wasn’t ideal. Our actual server was wonderful. The brunch special was great value and the food was high quality.

Boqueria is my go-to restaurant for work lunches, and if I lived in Times Square, I'd be there after work as well. The food, wine and service are excellent, and the menu and small-plates format makes it easy for even the pickiest eaters to find something they will enjoy. The Croquetas Cremosas are a must, and I'm a big fan of the Pulpo A La Plancha, the Gambas Al Ajillo and the Espinacas A La Catalana. See you there.

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.

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.
