    We’re retired local suburbanites who have decided it’s time to get back to some semblance of a normal post-pandemic life. Once a week we find a promising restaurant for lunch, hopefully near a point of interest. We visited Boqueria for an early Thursday lunch. It is a pleasant oasis situated only yards from the hustle and bustle, cutoff jean shorts, cowboy boots and tourist buses of Broadway. It’s a big place, all glass and chrome; but oddly quiet, at least for lunch. One could imagine, however, a high decibel level at happy hour. As to the food, it’s important to remember this is tapas! Each plate will be small and best considered appropriate for two diners. Besides flutes of cava, we ordered five dishes. The olives were more than we could eat. The croquettes were toasty brown: the star, the mushroom. The bacon wrapped dates were the weak link: good bacon, but mushy dates. The jambon was heavenly and the best dish, the eggplant. Yes, I know: ugh, eggplant; but it truly is a delicious concoction. Finally, the staff from top to bottom were extremely pleasant and provided just the right amount of attentiveness. ps: don’t forget to get your parking ticket validated at the hostess station or you’ll have an unpleasant surprise in the garage!

    Boqueria - NashvilleResponded on July 18, 2022We appreciate the time and detail spent on this review! We love having locals visit and with an ever-changing, seasonal menu, we always have something fresh and exciting to try. Please reach out when you're in Boqueria next! We look forward to seeing you soon. Kind Regards, Ashley Famania - Assistant General Manager

    Food was below average & on the pricier side. Do not order the Bloody Mary it’s awful. Service was great, he was definitely trying but felt responsible for the food not being good. Bottomless drink menu was a good deal! As a local though, I have no intentions of ever going back.

    Had a reservation for a Mother’s Day dinner. They were out of various items on the menu, waiter kept coming back to inform that they were out of the item. Ordered a medium paella and the rice had to be scrapped off the pan. First time experiencing all of this in our first visit, could not recommend and will not return.

    Nobody explained that it was a tapas style delivery- the food came all at different t times and we had to wait over an hour for two dishes, our waitress was inefficient and rude- horrible service.

    Boqueria - NashvilleResponded on June 4, 2022Hello, and thank you for this honest though unfortunate feedback. We take all guest reviews to heart, and I assure you that your words have been heard and communicated with our team. Please know that we did have the opportunity to have some very important coaching conversations with your server. It's clear that we missed the mark on some very important communication, as well as for our standards of hospitality, and for that I am sorry. Thank you again. - Evan Fazio, General Manager

    Sunday Celebration Brunch for my Birthday the following Monday. Just a little disappointed because the beverage we ordered wasn’t able to be served because the spirit was out of stock. The lams chops weren’t as good as I’d hoped. Chicken was good but not better than what can be prepared at home. The rusted potatoes (not on the menu) and French toast was Excellent!

    Boqueria - NashvilleResponded on April 30, 2022Hello Meki, and thank you for sharing this honest and helpful feedback. We share in your disappointment any time we are unable to provide and item on the menu, though we're always aiming to ensure that is not the case. I'm also sorry to hear the lamp and chicken fell short of your expectations, and I have shared your feedback with our Chefs. Please be sure to ask for me ahead of your next visit so I can ensure everything is perfect for you and your guests. - Evan Fazio, General Manager

    Ordered paella right away (as I know that it is supposed to take roughly 30 minutes to cook) and a few tapas to hold us over. We got our paella about 15 minutes later..not having finished our appetizers, we had no room for anything at our small table (the neighboring table had to ask the server to slow down on presenting courses, as they ordered the "chef's menu" and they just kept piling everything on top of each other)..the paella had no flavor and the rice didnt have its signature crispiness to it. We had to ask our server a few times to remove our empty plates. The menu items are just zesty wordy descriptions of pretty basic things.. the jamon serrano is just sliced cured ham..the gambas al ajillo was just garlic shrimp..the pan con tomate was just diced tomatoes on toast. The ambience was definitely the best part. Loved the design. I'd like to go back on a week night when its slower and try different items to see if the food quality is better.

    We tried The Classics from the Chef tasting menu and everything was fantastic. Sometimes tapas style can result in not enough food, that is definitely not the case at Boqueria.

    Atmosphere is great. Food is not worth the money. Chicken was dry, half chicken is a size of your hand. Shrimp were very small (8), looks like the one you get at the frozen section at the grocery store. Service was just okay. Would go back just for the drinks and atmosphere.

    The restaurant was very crowded (likely due to the big hockey game) but our table was ready on arrival. The tables are VERY close together along the long booth wall, and therefor conversation not very private. This was fine, we enjoyed chatting with neighbors, but others may find it too close for comfort, A large person would not be able to squeeze between the high tops. The waiter was not very versed in the Spanish wines or cocktails, so I just ordered bubbly. The food was AMAZING. I love that it came out when ready, and not all at once. It made us linger over dinner and eat slowly. Everything was delicious! I will for sure be back with more friends, and will try paella!
