Joselito reminds my wife and me of Spain 40 years ago when we lived there. The atmosphere, service, food and wine are consistently outstanding. We especially enjoy taking friends for their time to Joselito as we did this past Sunday for a quiet, most enjoyable lunch.

Have eaten here several times, and never been disappointed. Varied and imaginative menu, well executed. And the red wine sangria is actually drinkable.

We shared a range of tapas, and all were creative and delicious. We liked that everything can be ordered in three sizes...perfect for sharing or ordering individually. Service was quietly confident, informed, unobtrusive, and friendly. The dining rooms are comfortable, timeless, and casually elegant. Standout dishes that we sampled include stuffed squid; penne pasta with smoked chorizo; avocado, mango and tomato salad; and Spanish bread pudding infused with a hint of orange which was absolutely stunning! If you are salt sensitive, I would recommend letting the chef know since several dishes had a liberal application. All in all, we loved our experience, and highly recommend dinner here.

Joselito remains a hidden gem. The food is authentic and most of the waiters exceed expectations time after time. The prices make sense, and I love that you can choose your portion sizes. Selfishly, I hope this place remains a hidden gem, but really they deserve much more fanfare than they currently receive.

Very disappointing lunch. There were several noisy tables nearby and the waitress and wait staff were preoccupied. The gazpacho was tasty but our two other dishes were disappointing (too salty and too small for two people).

The food and service at this new venue is very good. The selection is classic Spanish but with some contemporary modifications. For most offerings, the patron can choose three sizes, opening the menu widely. The only reason I gave three of five for value is that the portion for the meal, even the media-racion, which they claim is a dinner sized portion, was rather small.

We had the tasting menu that consisted of five courses with two items for each course accompanied by sangria. The food presentation was good and the various courses were outstanding- favorites were the gazpacho, tuna and mushroom stew. The sangria was a great accompaniment but you can also order an optional wine pairing. Old world atmosphere in restaurant

Delicious mix of dishes that can all be ordered as tapas, medium, or family-sized. I always get tapas-sized so I can eat more of the items on their menu. Favorites: fried anchovies (boquerones), duck, salcipon (seafood salad), pork shoulder, and flan. This delicious place never disappoints. And be sure to make reservations if possible—the word is out on this place and it’s often very busy. A bonus: great , friendly staff.

Wide variety of dishes, all coming in 3 sizes at 3 prices (tapas, entre, family sized). Each one, even the apparently familiar dishes, has a surprising, thoughtful twist of flavor or ingredients, each prepared very well. The wine list is great, the service friendly and knowledgeable. A dependable, fun treat!

Great brunch, on an extremely quiet Sunday. Perfect cortados, beautiful bread, perfect fried eggs, beautiful jamón, and delightfully salty potatoes (which I have no idea how they were cooked). I will go back, for dinner.

Only criticism is that the entries came out surprisingly cold. We ordered two entrees -- duck and pork -- both were cold. We chose to not send them back given the lateness of the evening.

Joselito Casa de Comidas is always delightful from the lovely, warm ambiance and incredible food/beverages to impeccable service. The only disappointment was that they took gazpacho off the menu. That’s a big mistake and I strongly encourage them to put this favorite of many people back in the menu!

A well downtown located Spanish restaurant. The food is authentic, and they have a good selection of Tem Pramil Lo and Rioja wines. Very well aware of any gluten restriction. A Spanish “bistro” worth the trip.

Hidden gem in Eastern Market, nice interior, delicious food, would return. Needs more street prominence and suffers from being in Eastern Market where weekends offer no parking and plenty of distractions. Great service and fantastic drinks, everyone was pleased. Went for brunch and loved the pasta, fried anchovies, steak and eggs. Brunch Bellini and Blood Mary were priced right. Very good overall.
