I mentioned it being my friend's birthday in the open table's reservation notes and I am guessing the server did not read my notes.

Boqueria never disappoints! Their brunch is simply amazing. Great bottomless drinks and even better food. (I also highly recommend their happy hour!)

We did unlimited brunch. I would say for the price, the food wasn’t up to par but the drinks were great. Our server was fantastic and kept us fed and well ‘hydrated.’ Atmosphere is chic. Would maybe go back there in a blue moon but wasn’t too impressed by the food to do unlimited again.

Great place to have a dinner meal with colleagues from work! After setting a reservation we were seated and served promptly. Would definitely recommend to others wanting to have a good, cheaper option of dining than most sit'down places in DC.

This restaurant was an unexpected find. Tapas are the in thing right now, so there are lots of opportunities to taste Spanish small plates, but Boqueria takes tapas to the next level. They are amazing. We bought the Boqueria cookbook so we could replicate some of the dishes. Outstanding food, and very nice staff. I strongly recommend,

Second time taking my folks to Boqueria. The usual staples were delicious - croquetas/gambas/espinacas. I tried the fennel salad for the first time and though I thought it was good, it lacked a little something to pump up the flavor. Nevertheless, we love this place.

The patatas braves are the best in town! Gambas al ajilllo are also good, but perhaps need a touch more garlic. Very good service. Be prepared for lots of noise, but the food is worth it!

I spent my birthday dinner there with my family. They had an incredible variety of plates, and plenty of vegetarian options for some of my family members. I got the Alpine Spritz and the Basque Mule, and while they were unique, they weren’t what i expected for the price. The sangria definitely delivered though. I highly recommend the Batatas Bravas and the Mushroom dish. Also the Calamares. They brought our churros for my birthday with an incredible rich chocolate sauce finished with sparklers. The costs of the plates do add up, since they are small and you keep ordering, but all in all I am pretty satisfied.

My friend and I came here for an early weekday lunch and sat at the bar. The service from the bartender (can't remember his name) was fantastic! And you can't beat the lunch special to share some small plates/tapas. This is one of our favorite places to go in the Dupont area.

I was disappointed to learn the unlimited brunch ended at 2:00 pm not at 3:30 pm which OpenTable listed. If I had known the unlimited brunch ended at 2:00 I would not have made a reservation for 2:15.

We went for a business dinner, and we had a great experience. The mood was lively and definitely a local crowd. The food was great and the price was good. The small plates made for an adventure for the palate. Great value on the wine as well.

This is the second visit here for me, and I recommend it for something different.
