PROS - Food was delicious. Shrimp perfectly cooked. All dishes were seasoned well. Good wine selection. Server attentive but not overbearing. Food and wine wise - this place was quite good. Despite the cons below, I would probably go back again.
CONS - The jamon and queso $33 platter was absolutely overpriced for something to be shared with more than two people. Comfort was also an issue -- shortly after being seated at a high-top table/chairs we had to ask to be moved because they were very uncomfortable. They accommodated us and moved us to a traditional table, which was great, but then the server appeared annoyed when he realized we were a smaller party than that particular table could accommodate (we were 3, table was for more). Also, the temperature in the restaurant wasn't well regulated -- it was waaaay too hot. No one likes to sweat and eat unless you're at the beach.

I’ve had brunch in Boqueria before but this time it was disappointing since our server was missing a lot of times and the orders were incorrect and delivered out of order, as-in desserts were delivered first. It was a sub-par experience, but it was not terrible.

Good food, but service could have been better. A couple of the cocktails ordered took a really long time to be delivered by waiter.

Food was great and our server was a very nice gentlemen knowledgable about drink and food pairings. Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed was some other aspects of how Boqueria operated. 1) I made this reservations 2 weeks in advance and requested a nice sized table in a quiet part of the restaurant as we were celebrating my husbands bday together. What we get is a tiny table inches away from other diners whose voices seemed to echo throughout the whole restaurant. What disappointed me was at the time of our reservation there were very few people at the restaurant and several other tables we could have been seated. 2) Our server was a very nice guy but his timing was very off. It took us almost 15 minutes to even get a drink order and another 15 to 20 just to place an order for food. 3) A middle age woman who seemed to be the restaurant manager walked into our dining section checking on tables to thank them for their service and ask how their time was. She clearly wasn’t a server as she was not wearing the same server outfit as the others. She seemed to only check on several groups of diners who looked similar to her if you catch my drift. Overall food was good, servers are nice but I don’t think I would make an effort to come back.

Great service by a friendly and helpful waiter. Lots of choices and each of us ordered two to three tapas selections and shared. Everything was delicious. The seasonal sangria with blood orange was perfect and ended with the churros with Nutella (Yum!) and a Nutella hot chocolate with brandy. Excellent ending to a wonderful meal.

Very poor service, server did not approach until after we went to ask a manager where our server was. Food was slower for our table that arrived first and server was very forgetful. Did not interact with us in a friendly manner and was very dismissive.

True meaning of bottomless. Our drinks never went dry and there was constant food on our table. I recommend the bottomless brunch, and order one of everything. They keep the food coming, and it's all DELICIOUS!

We were a pretty easy group of four. We advised our server in the beginning, to make it easy on him, two of everything. We barely got refills. Our food arrived cold and old mainly the potatoes bravas and the French toast. We weren’t getting two of everything until towards the end.

Boqueria is always a great place to stop for some tapas and some of the best sangria in the city during the summer and also has been a tradition for valentines day for several years for me. This year on valentines day though they missed the mark a little bit, which was surprising because they've always been pretty great. We were sat at a small table which was right on top of 2 other couples so it was a little bit cramped and felt too much like a table of 6 then a dinner for two. I've never sat at that part of the restaurant before so I don't know if they were just trying to cram as many people in as possible for valentines day or it is always like that. My other major complaint was while I felt they had a couple dishes too salty, the broth of one of them was shockingly salty—to the point that I am surprised they would serve it. It was definitely the worst experience I had there but that is definitely because all the other times were so excellent.

Excellent food and service! Our waiter was so helpful with our friends with serious food issues. We really enjoyed all of the many tapas we tried. You cannot go wrong with the eggplant one and of course gambas with garlic. My only complaint: the chairs that came with our hightop were tiny and slippery and we kept falling off! So that led to an uncomfortable situation. Do not sit at the hightops.
