We have been to Boquetia twice now and have had fantastic food and service both times. Any restaurant that has its kitchen in full view shows total confidence in the ability of the chefs to be able to produce great food. If you sit near the kitchen it is like watching your own cookery demonstration., everyone knows what they are doing and it is a well oiled machine. When we visited this time, there was a change of shift, and the evening waiting staff were all sitting near us, being told by the maître d what was on the menu that night, and what the specials entailed. They all then had a short wine tasting session and a chat with the head chef for their shift. It was so lovely to be able to have a glimpse of how it all works behind the scenes. The food speaks for itself, great ingredients, great wines and fab service. The decor is modern but cosy, with great lighting and good music at a level you can still hold a conversation with your fellow diners.

You really can't go wrong if you need a quick bite of a couple of tapas dishes, or to linger with something more substantial.

This is the first real Spanish restaurant I have found in New York that is not Latin or Colombian. It's a pretty cool place. The time between ordering and receiving your food is so short it's great. The selection of wine and cheeses is amazing too. The atmosphere is bustling and alive. It's a great place to start off your night. The food is exquisite and the staff are friendly. I would recommend this place to everyone.

Great dinner on a Thursday night. Figured we'd give this place a shot as they have really good reviews. Glad we did! Food was very good. The tapas come out very fast. Very flavorful and the staff are very accommodating.

We ordered the pallea for two, and the shaved fennel and shrimp salad. Everything was great, the salad was a very nice portion (we ordered the smaller size). Great service, great location. We loved it
