Went to Boqueria On a whim because my partner and I were starving. I have been there before for happy hour but it was my first time for dinner and it was literally so delicious! Everything from the drinks to the desert was well made, flavourful, and unique. For drinks we got one white sangria, a shitio pepper margarita (this had a savory, sublime but slightly sweet taste -I loved it.) our appetizer was a slightly charred broccoli dish with some sumac and currants. Then we had pinxos morenos, the bleu cheese steak and the octopus tapa. Finally for dessert we got the basque cheesecake With a side of the dulce de lèche. There was a little olive oil on the rim of the dish which paired perfectly with the cheese cake. Unfortunately I do not remember the name of the server we had but he was great and looking around I could tell all the servers and bussers were all very Attentive. It was a Phenomenal dinner. Usually I can only eat a few bites my food and I have to save the rest for a few hours but I ate everything!
Great food, great experience, but the champagne was very cheap.
Had a lovely experience at Boqueria. Got a few plates that we did not ask for and did not get a few that we did ask for, but the flexibility of the tapas style meal made it not matter too much. I will be back!
Fun place great food
A fun birthday treat! Drinks were 4 stars but food was 5! Service wasn't bad considering it was a weekend brunch. I would go back again!
First time to this location, great food, bar service, table service and good variety of wine.
The Mushroom croquettes were so good. Definitely made up for the salt cod fritters which were not good. Those shishito peppers though....
Great service, my friend spilled his champagne and they quickly brought a new glass without our even mentioning it! The meatballs, croquettes and the bacon wrapped dates were all delicious. Will definitely be back
Great service and very good atmosphere. The tapas sizes are pretty generous.
Great quality food. Service was good as we were the only people at a table and a few people at the bar.
Special outing to celebrate with friends. Was given a nice spot that was relatively quiet in what would be a generally noisy restaurant. Though all of their tapas are excellent and spot on to the tapas we had in Barcelona, I can only describe their seafood paella as good - not great.
Food portions are huge. Wish it was smaller and more focused, like true tapas.
Each person needs 1-2 not 3-4 plates.
Also, the jamon Serrano is sub-par.
Good vibe but would not recommend, especially with Jaleo so close by.
Everything was great, except the server seemed very bothered that we didn’t want everything on the al-you can
First time here for my Birthday Dinner with friends!!! Great and delicious food!!!
Spanish restaurant serves tapas that serves 2 people. As good as any we’ve had anywhere, including throughout Spain.
Attentive friendly service. Shishito margarita is a must try if you are into margaritas.
The tapas lunch was excellent. The wine recommendation was very nice as well.
Great addition to the neighborhood. Calamari was excellent. We had several vegetarian dishes, which were very good, esp. the brussels sprouts. Crema catalan was delicious. It was comfortable to converse, though I wish restaurants would choose music that doesn't have a throbbing bass.
Went for my wife’s birthday and it was great, exactly what we were wanting. Service was top notch and food was amazing! We got about five tapas and paella for four people was great. Sangria was very good. Would recommend and we plan to go back.
We sat at the back of the restaurant which was nice. We were able to see the kitchen in action. The food tasted really good. Almost as good as some of the restaurants in Seville, Spain.
We had the weekend “Bottomless Brunch”. None of the tapas were bad, but we really enjoyed about half of them. That’s the whole purpose since you reorder any of the tapas you want. It also includes bottomless sangrias and mimosas. Service was very efficient and we’re definitely going back.
Great food, fun drinks and attentive staff. I love the atmosphere, especially the round tables up front.
It was great
Excellent! Loved the croquetas and churros!
Overall good. We had the hanger steak with piquillo peppers which was delicious. We had the patatas which were just ok. We also the gambas which were super oily and lacked flavor. We finished it off with some churros, our server made the suggestion of getting a mix of dulce de leche and Nutella churros. They were amazing. Our server was efficient and attentive without being intrusive. We would probably come back and try other items on the menu.
Great for a group of friends or for a date night. Wonderful food and atmosphere.
Excellent food. A bit expensive but expected given the location. Def one of my favorite DC restaurants.
The bottomless brunch was ok. Nothing impressive. Worse was to get charged extra for a Latte, and after the server presented the bill not included but added to the total credit card charge... and the latte was $16 😳.
The steak and oxtail were excellent. Didn’t enjoy the sweet potatoes (very bland), brussel sprouts (oily and bland) and churros with nutella (very oil).
Wonderful food and service, quick, charming place and very professional chef!
Food took a long time and the octopus was not well-cooked.
A really nice lunch and good value. Tasty! Chicken was tender, salad nice and light and papas braves a guilty pleasure.
There was hair in my croquettas and out of oxtail :(
Get the paella de mariscos
Great fun experience!! The Sunday brunch is such a good deal that you would be stupid to pass it up!
What a great find. We had a wonderful evening of sharing outstanding tapas. The service was spot on. Next time in DC I will add it to my list of top locations to meet colleagues
Food was excellent, especially the hanger steak which can't be beat.
It was really fabulous. The one drawback was that we were on our way to the hockey game, and we couldn’t get our server’s attention to keep things moving more quickly to get to the game on time.
Host staff was so accommodating of our large group reservation, and our waitress (Pina) was excellent and so sweet.
