My wife and I tied the Mediterranean salad and the grilled steak salad. Both were very good but I would have liked a little more of a portion. The gazpacho soup was also very good.Next time we need to order more food.

Nice and fun restaurant and bar, great service, beautiful people, great food and drinks (specially the house sangria), good price. I’ve been there multiple times , as couple, with friends, with family. Everyone loved the food and atmosphere. Reservations ahead of time recommended.

We love this restaurant. It is our goto date night spot. The octopus, tuna, cheese, and jamon are terrific. But so is everything. Nice Spanish wine flights and great staff.

Having Just we change from second trip to Spain it is maybe a little unfair to compare. However, good food is good food and it is often missing at Bocado. Ideas seem good but execution sometimes lacking. Depth of flavor just doesn't reach potential.

The menu can be confusing but the expert help we revived from the staff was exceptional. Every item they recommended to us was spot on. We enjoyed our dining experience with all its new tastes and presentations

Great taps spot in an obscure part of Wellesley. Are you headed to Spain soon? Get primed up here! Good staff, didn’t get his name but this guy with a beard heard we were going to Spain soon and gave us free drinks. Very friendly....More

Having been about a year ago, I was pleasantly surprised at this time. The scallops wrapped in bacon, the fried calamari was delicious. A relaxing bar and restaurant. Not too crowded noisy. Good cocktails and nice wine list, although limited to Spanish wines

We stopped in here for lunch and I can’t believe I waited this long to go! It was hard to choose dishes since they all looked so good. The buffalo cauliflower was incredible in particular, but everything was yummy and the pacing of dishes was...More
