    We were very excited to dine here last night with friends before a concert. We are all kind of “foodies” and love to cook ourselves but also try new places together. We were all extremely underwhelmed with our tapas and we tried 9 plus small seafood paella. I hate not to give a place a second chance in case it was just a bad night, but with so many places to eat in around Nashville, I wouldn’t dine here again. The atmosphere, service , and sangria were great.

    From the time we entered the restaurant until we had finished our meal, everything exceeded our expectations. We didn’t have a lot of experience with tapas restaurants so we opted for the Boqueria Experience. Our server listened to our short list of ingredients we need to avoid and curated a delightful culinary experience. The cocktails were unique and went well with our experience. We have already recommended this to friends!

    Our waiter - very sorry as I forgot his name - was very friendly and helpful by introducing what on the menu were local dishes which weren’t on that of the same restaurant at other national locations. We did end up ordering a couple of those local items and felt pretty satisfied. We’ve been to this chain in Boston and DC and this one in Nashville seems the biggest. However, size is probably the only difference I’d tell among all. Everything else is the same wonderful.

    Terrific experience. Wonderful food in the tapas, small plates style. The ham was to die for, served with cheeses. The charcuterie is not to be missed, nor the meatballs and anchovies. Wash it all down with sangria. Super. Service was awesome.

    Our group had a great meal at Boqueria before going to a concert at The Ryman. We ordered a number of tapas and all were excellent. Our favorite was the short rib stuffed peppers. Our cocktails and dessert churros were also excellent. Our server, Po, was fun and provided excellent service. Highly recommend.

    Rare poor experience. Food took very long and some things never even arrived by the time we were ready to leave. The server took them off the check, but it was disappointing not to ever get the things you ordered and for us to have to ask about it rather than the server noticing. We were told that the bartender was "backed up" so we might as well not even order another drink because it probably wouldn't arrive. Crazy.

    I came here to the Nashville boqueria because I go to all the ones from nyc. Unfortunately they didn’t live up to the service that nyc provides. The drinks took forever and by the time it got to our table the ice melted the drink and tasted water down. I requested sparkling water and they brought me regular tap water. When I requested that I asked for sparkling that took a long time too. Long enough that I didn’t want the sparkling water anymore the food came out before the drinks and the quality of the food wasn’t up to par with what boqueria gives. The did remove the drinks and comped them.

    Well, I was hoping for more. I am aware that much of Nashville's restaurant scene is starting to mimic NYC and LA pricing, but... well, I just expected a bit more "Nashville" influence related to portion. I love tapas, so I am accustom to the small plate idea. The pricing just didn't line up with the food delivered. I was surprised when the Mini Hamburguesa was $9 and that was for one mini. And they are mini for sure. The Crispy Potatoes were ok but at least half of them were cut so slender that the cooking process left them more like a potato chip. The restaurant was not very busy for being next to Broadway on a Sunday early evening. So, it seemed odd that with two hostess, neither could find my reservation or knew where they had seated my friend who arrived before me. Luckily I found him. And then, the waiter was very nice, but perhaps he was the only waiter as he was quite scarce during our visit. All in all, just left me wanting more.

    The food was very delicious--I could eat everything on the charcuterie board for my entire meal. The bacon wrapped dates, the street corn, the steak, the pork...i mean literally everything was so tasty and savory. The ambience and decor were very cool. While it was full with customers it wasn't crazy loud--we could still have a conversation with our friends without straining our ears or having to yell. Would definitely go back again!

    We have eaten at several Boqueria locations including this one a few times. This was a bad night for the kitchen. Everything was a little off. Bread for the Shrimp wad freezer burned (or something), the half chicken took forever and was room temperature when it arrived. Meatballs were ordered at the beginning and came out last. Server was great and was the only thing stopping us from leaving. We are big fans of Boqueria and will visit again. We will be in Boston in October and hope that location is a better experience.
