    Joselito is simply the best Spanish restaurant in DC. We went for my husband’s birthday, and we enjoyed a variety of tapas, excellent wine and the wonderful Andalusian bread pudding. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable. The chef is first rate. I highly recommend!

    Usually, I have outstanding reviews for Joselito's, but the duck that was served at lunch during restaurant week was very good, but not the usual excellent quality. I will always recommend this restaurant, but restaurant week may not reflect its typical outstanding quality for service and food.

    Great food. We are from Spain and it's a bit difficult to describe, but this is not your usual Spanish food place (like the typical ones with tortilla, croquetas, etc) but it felt like being home in some way. We were also treated great by the server and it was overall a great experience. We tend to not like going out on Restaurant Week since places tend to be overcrowded and the food offered tends to be of a bit less quality than usual, but Joselito proved us wrong! everything was delicious and we'll definitely go back soon!

    We love this cozy, friendly gem of a neighborhood restaurant. We hadn't been here since before the pandemic. We're so glad it survived, and were delighted to experience the same great service and fantastic food. Truly, everything was delicious, and Joselito elevates dishes with interesting flavors and perfectly executed cooking. Standout dishes were the mushroom stuffed crepe, the seasonal vegetables, the egg pasta with crab, and the duck breast. Flan for dessert is not to be missed either.

    Wonderful place for tapas, which we chose for New Year's Eve as our dinner. LOVE the Iberian ham and Manchego cheese they have here! Also the fried sardines. Great wine selection, and they do an amazing sangria (with the fruit in an ice cube!). A terrific neighborhood gem but also worth the trip from anywhere.

    A cold Wednesday night before Christmas and we received an early gift…an outstanding culinary experience at Joselito Casa de Comidas. The staff were professional and engaging in their presentation of the menu offerings. The three of us had excellent cocktails and delicious wine to accompany our tapas appetizers and excellent entrees. We all had different dishes and sampled each other’s selection. All plates were finished! This restaurant is a true gem that should be on your must do list! We will be back.

    If your menu says at the bottom, "Ask your server to see our by-the-bottle list," then you should have a list, or at least be told the list is not available....., or maybe use a sharpie and cross that part out off the menu. The server should not take the main menu and point to the short list like a teacher in school pointing to a student who did not read the instructions on the worksheet. The bottle of red we got was delicious, but needed a good twenty minutes to warm up from the refrigerator temp it was served at. For a venue serving at this price point, we expected better on a sSaturday night. Overall the food was delicious and the restaurant is beautiful!

    This was some of the most interesting, flavorful food that I've had in a while. There were 5 of us and we all felt the same way - great food. Service, on the other hand, was SO non-existent that it really ruined the experience. We'd never been to this restaurant before and no one took the time to explain the menu, etc., and they pretty much ignored us until we called them over to tell them we needed more water, wanted to order another drink, more food and a bottle of wine. Was almost comical the staff's level of nonchalance as to our presence. I was taking clients out and for the kind of money I spent, I certainly expected more...and have GOTTEN more from numerous places at half the price. If asked, I would definitely sing the praises of the chef for his really tasty food, but would be hard to recommend spending the money for the overall experience.

    A transporting atmosphere with wonderful food. Most dishes are available in three sizes allowing a meal of small plates or a single selection. For two of us, we ordered three small plates each and then had to order our favorite (the duck breast) a second time for a total of seven. The server was very knowledgeable and nice with excellent suggestions, but at times was a bit distracted by other tables (perhaps a bit understaffed?). It was a wonderful meal, and we would absolutely go back.

    Despite my reservations was seated at a cramped table near the waiter’s stand and bumped in the head multiple times. Good food, higher-than-necessary prices. Probably won’t return except for perhaps 20% off at happy hour.

    The restaurant was accommodating in letting us sit on the patio with our 1yo daughter and dog. All of the food we tried was very good, but felt a bit more expensive than I was expecting. The service was outstanding, to include offering modifications to dishes for dietary restrictions and splitting dishes without request for my wife and I.

    Nice place, though a bit stark with fairly uncomfortable seating. Most of the food was excellent and beautifully plated. A grilled octopus dish was particularly well-regarded by our group. The background sound track was unpleasantly loud, especially with tile floors and nothing to absorb sound. (My fault for not asking if volume could be turned down.). Service was attentive and good. Prices ratchet up quickly with many small and medium offerings to choose among and cocktails/wine on the high side, though not out of line.
