Joselito's is a Neighborhood and citywide gem! New stuffed squid was fantastic - Shrimp Crudo was fresh and unique and the lamb was magical. Thanks for another superb meal!

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.

Outstanding meal during my second visit. Went for a birthday some months ago and returned last Mon. on my way to LC for a program. The mango, avocado and tomato salad was wonderful. Pork meatballs tasty and the Spanish rice with seafood was really flavorful. Split these with my friend so we could try several tastes and it worked out very well. The bread pudding dessert was really great also. I will return regularly to try all the dessert options as well as the menu. Service was great and by going early at 5pm, we had the dining room to ourselves until just before we left at 6:20.

The food was good, the place is cute. Love the duck and their red sangria. However, our entrees were delivered one at a time, with considerable gap in between. There were six of us. After the third plate came in, I had to ask the server to serve the last three all together. My mom’s food was cold by the time all the entrees were served.

Joselito is fantastic! I've gone twice now with family and friends, and both times were wonderful experiences. The service and ambiance are both very nice, and the food is absolutely stellar. I've never had a bad dish here -- they range from good to excellent. Adjustable plate sizes (most are available in tapas, entree, and family portions) make it easy to try a range of dishes or to double down on a favorite, and make it good for either a date or large gathering. The braised pork cheek and the spiced mashed potato with sardines are both excellent, but the monkfish blows them all away. I cannot recommend this place enough.
