On a recommendation, we tried this restaurant. It was an early Sunday evening. Perhaps Sundays are not the best evening for restaurants. It was quite a disappointing experience for us, since we have had much better experiences at tapas restaurants, as well as had similar individual dishes better prepared. It was recommended by our waiter that we'd be best off... More

Bocado is fantastic. I highly recommend you come with a big group and do the Experience. A few things I want to note: -Get the fried goat cheese. Seriously. It's really good. But don't skimp out at all and miss the charcuterie plate, there are a lot of solid options. -The rice balls are also really nice and regardless of... More

Nice place but not enough of ...well.. everything, It is kinda pretentious but tapas not that good, Sangria is also not Spanish one... I can;t see me have great time there as in Spain... I will come back, just because it is stylish enough, but not because of food or drinks...

My boyfriend and I ate there a little bit ago and we loved the food. The lamb was great and we had no complaints about the food. Our waiter on the other hand was not one of our favorites. We asked about getting some pickles on an item and instead of simply saying "I'm sorry we don't change the items... More

My daughter and I went to this place on a hunch. We ordered a few tapas and a main course each. The best tapa , was the meatloaf made with beef, pork, and venison. The portion was enough for two people and very rich and tasty. The entrees were also a decent size. Though a bit pricey, it was a... More

Have been to almost every tapas and tapas-like place in Boston and outside of the city. This one was our favorite! Great selection, authentically Spanish, excellent ambiance! We always go with another couple and get the 4 person meal, which allows selection of many small plates. Love going here. Great food and qualifies as a 'fun' place to go if... More

I LOVE this place! I highly recommend the wine dinners held on the last Monday of every month. The chef prepares special dishes to compliment to go with the wines being sampled. The owner does a great presentation for each of the wines. It's a great way to meet new people, sample new wine and have great food! :)

Fun atmosphere, but not so loud you couldn't carry on a conversation. My sister and I had an great night out. From Valet, to Hostess, to bartenders, to servers. Easy and fun!

We, 3 adults, dined here last Sat. Oct 18th for a Birthday Dinner. The Birthday girl had been here numerous times, but 2 of us had never been. The Restaurant is very nicely decorated. Exposed brick walls and lit candles on the tables made it for a cozy evening. We opted for the DINNER for 2 Experience, which was suggested... More

Delicious food with a ton of flavor and variety. To cook this at home could take all day. We were tempted to get one of the set menus, but opted to go a la carte. Turns out the set menu would have been too much for us. We ordered a couple dishes at a time and stopped when we had... More
