Latin American
Boveda in Washington, DC is a low-key spot for authentic Spanish fare. Its name actually means "vault" and the owners have designed the entire space to have a "Latin speakeasy" atmosphere. Tucked into the Westin in the Georgetown area, it is fun and funky and even offers a private dining room if desired. Menu options at Boveda are both familiar and unique at the same time. Starters include cheese platters and charcuterie options. Appetizers feature house made guacamole, nachos and ceviche as well as pupusas and yucca in green sauce. Trio platters are a great way to savor many different tastes, and there is a large array of beef and meat platters. Of course, no visit to Boveda is complete without one of the irresistible desserts as well as a classic cocktail.

    When we arrived at Boveda they told us we had no reservations even though I showed them the opentable confirmation. The restaurant was empty and the waiter told us to just have a seat. We sat down he offered no apology and the restaurant didn't seemed like a good fit so we left. My husband and I have never walked out of a restaurant but Boveda just didn't feel like a good dining experience.

    My girlfriend and I decided to visit DC once again and because of Boveda, our trip got a lot more fun. We loved how nice and friendly the manager and the waiter assigned to us were. Our reservation was at 9pm and our table was ready to go. We even stayed till closing hours because of how nice it felt to just sit there and have one of the best margarita drinks we have had. We enjoyed it so much that we returned the next evening. The manager allowed us to sit in the same booth and even offered us to taste a new sangria that he had made and it was just another delicious drink! We are definitely visiting Boveda on our next trip and planning on bringing more people with us!

    Very uneven experience. Menu had variety. Food was brought out unevenly so the first in our party of 8 had their food a full 5 minutes before the last group in our party did. Waiter gave us the check without checking if anyone wanted coffee or dessert, which we did. Also said he couldn't validate parking even though website said they did. We weren't rushed (other than the check thing) and food was good.

    the decor is quite neat. Although is a tapas restaurant, most of the food is not Spanish. It is a mix between Mexican food in tapas or entrees + Manchego cheese (probably the only Spanish item). The food was good. Service was slow as written by others. If you are in no rush, just want to socialize and drink with occasional movement of food, then is ok. I would recommend to order your drinks and first round of tapas so you are not left waiting. BTW, the place was empty when we were there...

    The guacamole was delicious and the Ceviche was different in that it was served in large chunks on flat puffy tortilla shell. They were very good but overall I found the menu disappointing. I was expecting more then traditional Mexican fair with a description of "modern takes on pan-Latin small plates, entrees & drinks in rustic-chic digs." The queso fundito was disappointing in that it seemed like Velveta melted and the salsa was a jarred salsa. Some fresh pico would have been nice instead and add some flare to the menu. The interior was attractive enough but overall vibe was almost sad as it was so empty on a Saturday night at 8:00.

    if you are looking for a quick casual latin food fix, Boveda provides some basics you will be familiar with. Reasonable prices and happy hours during the week.

    Our dinner at Boveda was fine until it was time to pay. We were a party of 10, and expected the normal 18% gratuity to be added to the bill. However, the manager brought over the bill and asked us whether we'd like the gratuity to be either 20% or 21%. We found this completely off-putting. Then, when we received the bill it was very confusing--it looked like the gratuity was added twice so we had to ask the manager for an explanation for that. Finally, we were a party of 10 and spent over $400 and noticed that they had the nerve to charge us for 3 extra orders of chips to go with our guacamole and queso. We had only asked once for more chips, which they didn't bring, so we asked again. We did not get 3 orders, only 1 order. Food was good but these things really put us off. We will not return.

    It was dead on a Monday albeit. There didn't seem to be any waiters/waitresses so we sat at the bar. While the bar was also dead, didn't really get the attention from the bartender that we desired. He was dealing with a weird customer, but still. Waited around a bit for a couple of drinks.

    I really enjoy the food and the selections available. The bar is always a great place to sit for some good conversation with the other patrons or bartender. Tj recommended a few meals and drinks that were excellent. He should eat a little more of the food there since he looks so skinny and tall but his customer services was superb. I will definitely eat and drink there again.
