This is my favorite brunch spot in NYC! The food, drinks, and service are always top notch. I celebrated my 25th birthday here with a few of my friends and it was incredible.

We met our daughter for a weekend in NYC. We have lived in Barcelona and this restaurant offered all the great things about Catalan tapas. Great wine list. Good mixed cocktails. Waiter had solid information about the menu. Food came quickly but we felt comfortable lingering. I would definitely go back!

The food was VERY good, and the service was amazing. Drinks were a little pricey, but those were also good and came out quickly the whole night. I'll go back!

GREAT spot for time square area.

Food was awesome, the design of the space is nice. I like that there are many circle shaped booths well suited for conversation.

Other than wolfgangs this is a top place to go in this neighborhood of NYC.

Food was fantastic! Loved the croquetas, especially the mushroom, the squid and the octopus. Also, the sangria is perfectly favourable, but not too sweet. Would definitely return

They didn’t have enough 2 seater seats so they accommodated us by sitting us at a four top which I appreciate.

The atmosphere is lively but manageable for easy conversation. Food was sublime. Nice for a light meal or you can make it as big as you like with great choices of small plates. Don’t miss the stuffed dates wrapped in bacon or the green beans. The best!!

Drinks and food plates came out slowly with some
Missing orders, and out of stock plates too. Food came out first and 15 minutes later we had to ask the waiter twice for the wine. The food is nice though, and the decor is pretty- but it's slightly on the disorganized side for a Sunday night with less than 75%capacity it looked like.

We had a wonderful experience. The food was great and the service was estelar. Our server heard me mention it was my Mom’s birthday and brought us dessert with a sparkler. It really made her day. My only comment would be to pace out the tapas a bit further apart so you can enjoy them while they’re still warm.

We have been to the other NYC Boqueria locations, and we will stick to them in the future -- but not because of a problem with the food. The paella was just as good here as it has been elsewhere! The low rating for service is for the striking unfriendliness of the hostess, whom customers must encounter in order to get into the restaurant. Her attitude temporarily spoiled the mood for our party, although our server was great (that's the only reason that I didn't rate the service at one star).

Before our meal, I ordered a vermouth. It was very difficult to pay $12 for such a small amount. In Spain, vermouth is filled up to the top and it's about 2 euros. I understand that we must pay more in NYC but I finished my pre-brunch drink in 4-5 sips. Brunch was delicious. I just found it hard to get passed that "hora del vermouth" experience.

Food is always great and fun. Our server was pushy and seemed annoyed when I asked to give us a little time to think rather then just get what she was recommending.
At the end she insisted on clearing the table in one trip despite the tight space and her lack of concern when I mentioned to her had just dropped food down my back .
Oh well.....it was only damp bread and our left over salad!

Honestly, the worst tasting food from Boqueria, ever! I frequently eat at Boqueria Flatiron and Soho and have been a loyal client for over 11 years. This Boqueria Times Square location is a disgrace to the brand. The service was absolutely horrendous, waiting half an hour from the moment we sat down to get our first drinks which were from the unlimited brunch special. Then the food was absolutely gross! Not sure if the chef has changed, but the food here is just plain generic. I cannot believe I wasted $110 usd on garbage food and horrible service. Just to get a refill of water or a refill of the unlimited mimosa was a hassle to flag down the waiter. By 3pm, the restaurant was almost empty, and no waiter was in sight. Worst location, disgusting food, and bad service.
