Tapas portions are ablittle bigger than your normal tapas restaurant but the overall food quality was average when you compare it to some of the other great tapas restaurants in Boston like Toro, Taipeo etc. Service at the bar was great and you could see they have their regulars crowd which was great to see. The space lack of energy... More

My husband and I have been to Estragon a number of times and always enjoy the atmosphere as well as the food. The bar is classic old wood and sets the tone for an intimate evening as a couple or with friends. They make some amazing craft cocktails and have an extensive regional wine list. The walls have floor to... More

I rarely venture to the South End neighborhood but a friend suggested meeting at this spot. It's a 15 minute walk from the Back Bay or Mass Ave Orange Line T stations. There Silver Line runs near by as well. My friend and I had a great time. The service was really attentive without being pushy. Our food and wine... More

We ended up getting a reservation at the last minute and sat in the back on couches and chairs around a coffee table. MOST AMAZING AND FUN EVENING!!!! Such a great atmosphere and awesome food. Sharing is the best way to experience this restaurant. The beef cheeks were so good!!!! We loved the brussel sprouts. Good cocktails and great service.... More

I loved this restaurant. The tapas were well prepared and beautifully presented. And tasted so delicious! The service was excellent -- server was attentive without being overbearing and made some great recommendations when we just couldn't decide. We will definitely go again and consider this restaurant a hidden gem in Boston's South End because it is slightly off the beaten... More

We became tapas fans on our first visit to Spain and have return on a number of occasions, so, to find a goods tapas restaurant is always a treat. And Estragon is a treat! They have a nice variety of excellently prepared tapas and friendly, helpful servers. We arrived before our friends and spent a little time at the bar.... More

We took advantage of a Groupon to try Estragon. We will be back. We were early for our reservation but were seated promptly. We started with the Sangria.. A pitcher for the four of us. It was very good. We were then able to order ten different tapas for our visit. It was suggested that we order a few at... More

Had some family members in town from Arizona and wanted to take them to place with no relation to Arizona and the place was worth every penny. We shared 10 tapas between 4 people and it was more than enough. Every other place I have gone to eat tapas in Boston all have been expensive and small portions. This place... More

There were six of us sharing our tapas on a recent hot summer eve. Each of us ordered two plates, so we each got to sample twelve tastes, although not all wanted to sample the octopus or the tongue! Some didn't eat shrimp or mussels. There was enough food to satisfy us all. My favorite is the smoked salmon with... More

We have gone to Estragon a number of times. The staff is great - very pleasant, with top notch service. Almost everything is good (meatballs didn't appeal to us, but they might to someone else), and the food is moderately priced. When you order, get a couple items per person (or one for smaller eaters), split them, then decide if... More
