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

I recently dined with friends at Estragon. This Spanish Tapas restaurant is in Boston's restaurant-laden South End. The decor is casual and eclectic and reminds me of a Pedro Almodovar film. Cocktails are creative and the ones we had were spot on. The menus is designed for sharing as most are small plates. We had a generous sampling of the... More

My husband and I were in Boston recently site seeing and stayed in a B n B near Estragon. We went in one evening unaware that it was Restaurant week. They had a special for a low price for 3 tapas per person, plus dessert. Everything was delicious, fresh made and ample in size. We are from Alaska and both... More

Our daughter Katy and her boy friend Joe have been together for eight years. Recently they pleasantly surprised us by decided to "tie the knot". However, they weren't interested in any kind of a big and/or fancy wedding. After some thought they decided to have the wedding at one of their favorite restaurants (which had a room that could be...
