This was my best experience at Boqueria West due to level of service and the quality of dishes we chose. My friend and I shared four tapas dishes-eggplant yogurt spread, Serrano ham, pan tomate (grilled bread rubbed with tomatoes), and lamb skewers. Eggplant was a delicious surprise, Serrano ham was served on a platter with pan tomate and olives, and the lamb skewers (recommended by the waiter, over lamb meatballs) was both flavorful and filling! We each had a drink with the meal, and the bill came to less than fifty a person, including tip! Fifty per person is a minimal cost for a night out; to spend less than that and enjoy good service and food is quite rare in Manhattan, these days. Well done Boqueria and I will be back for more!!

We did the Boqueria tasting menu and it was full of amazing and delicious dishes. Every single thing was delicious, though some were even better than others. The beans and artichokes with squid was fantastic, as were of course the shrimp in garlic and the oxtail. It was also a pretty astounding good value for what we got! The two "complaints" I would have is that when they served the jamon it had some sort of sauce on it, which really distracted from the flavor of the ham. That kind of ham doesn't need to be dressed! And the bread that came with things was pretty cold, which was an odd offset to the hot food.

The service was great, and particularly good for a Times Square restaurant. ;) Not highest-end, but very friendly and it was relatively easy to catch their attention when something was needed. Maybe not quite as much checking in as would be ideal, but really great.

There was little to no description of the tapas prefix menu options. The food was very good and the wine selection was great. Our server was very helpful with his knowledge of Spanish wines. The food was good and filling but nothing stood out as truly amazing.

Third time coming here and was not let down. Food is great and served quickly. Some of the seats are a bit cramped. We got sat between two tables with couples at them and it was uncomfortably close. We asked to move seats and thankfully waitress was able to find us seats at the kitchen bar area. Good experience once we moved tables

Second time eating here and enjoyed this time even more than the first. It is a bit crowded and loud but there were a lot of people, which is typical of a great restaurant in NYC. Outstanding service and amazing food. Will definitely go back.

Went there for the first time. Eclectic clean and You can smell the gentle aroma of the different dishes cooking in the kitchen. there were four of us and we ordered three tapas each. Way too much food. Two tapas per person. You can always order more if you want. Tried more traditional dishes most were delicious some were very good and two were so so. But I would assume that different tastes would like different dishes. As far as the actual preparation of the dish, the quality of the ingredients and the quality of the food were outstanding. This is a place where you go with friends and share plates and experiment and find what you like and find what you don't. PS the beer is excellent

Spacing and lighting. You felt slighty cramped by the very close seating and in most areas the lighting is so low it's hard to read the menu. Everything else is very good.

Boqueria was great! Their brunch deal is a good price, for only $42 plus tax and tip you get unlimited Sangria (the Tinta is my fav) or mimosas for two hours as well as enough food for those at the table. I believe you have to be 2 or more to get the brunch, but it's definitely worth it.

We have been to the Boqueria in Washington DC and had a great experience. We decided to visit this location after taking in a Broadway show and it did not disappoint. We really enjoyed the food and the proximity to Times Square in NYC. Staff and service was excellent and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for authentic Spanish paella.

The service was good but the food wasn’t that great! We ordered a lot of things but nothing tasted good. The shrimps was too oily , the Ham and potato bravas was good. The rest of the stuff was not good at all

We'd never eaten here before, and when I saw it was connected to an hotel, I was dubious. But no worries! It was absolutely wonderful, authentic and very inventive. The staff was terrific and we had a marvelous meal.

I brought two business clients here for a dinner meeting. We had a nice corner booth/table which was perfect for conversation. We particularly enjoyed the cheese plate, fennel and citrus salad, and the new skate item on the menu. Since my clients eat Kosher, I was happy to see tapas on the menu that were appropriate for their dietary restrictions.

Went for dinner with a group of colleagues. We were sat immediately upon arrival. One member of our party had an allergy and our waiter, Tim, was very knowledgeable about which items they could have or needed to avoid. While we were sharing the dishes among a group of five, two people could easily share a few dishes for a compete meal. Would gladly return to Boqueria to try more things.

We ordered a pitcher of Blanca Sangria but it wasn't up to it's usual standard. Missing the white peach flavor. Waiter said that it is made prior to opening and they wouldn't make a new batch for us.

I love all Boquerias around the city. This one is spacious and has a nice step up where you can sit at the bar or the tables in the back. A little disappointed this location doesn't have some of the same food as the other locations, nor does it do happy hour.

There were very few people in the restaurant when we arrived but it took our server a while to get to us. The menu we received did not reflect what I’d looked at online, and was told that’s because they have a weekDAY and a weekEND breakfast menu (that was not distinguished on the website - I double checked). The food was “fine”. But for the price I paid, I was expecting something green to accompany my meal of bread and potatoes. I wanted to eat here based on reviews, so maybe my expectations were too high. Disappointed. Maybe it’s better for evening food. But our seating hostess was lovely!
