We had a drink at the bar and came back a couple of hours for dinner. This is a tapas restaurant and the salad is big enough to shore. The ahi tuna tacos are excellent and the South American steak with rice and beans equally...More

We should have known better when we tried to get into the other restaurant of the Westin hotel and they said Boveda offered both french and Mexican menus. The place was completely empty, which should have been our first cue to leave. There was no...More

I ate dinner at the bar one evening: chips and guac plus short rib tacos. They were good if not outstanding. The wine by the glass was similarly drinkable but not particularly interesting.

The fresh guacamole and chips were delicious! I also loved the chicken with fries and rice. The pair went great together and it was well seasoned. The servers were friendly and fast.

I've been here a couple of times for corporate-style events; I think the place is chosen because it's usual empty and thus willing to extend some pretty big discounts to corporations who will sponsor an event in the space. The space is terrible--it's in a...More

I ordered the shrimp tacos and a glass of wine. The tacos were amazingly good. The salsa was the perfect level of heat. Service was prompt and friendly.

This bar is in the Georgetown Westin and is not a lobby bar where one can people watch. You step down into the bar and it is a like a dark cave. We didn't stay to enjoy our drinks and took them to our room...More

Boveda - which literally means vault- is a Latin Speakeasy located in the West End neighborhood of Georgetown. Properly chaotic, casual, and affordable, Boveda is the clandestine destination for vibrant eclectic music, unique cocktails, and inspired modern Latin American dishes. Diners may enjoy various seating areas within the intimate space including raised booths, banquettes, communal tables, a lounge, a neighborhood bar, and a tavern-esque private area. This hidden gem reveals reclaimed wood ceilings and floors, Spanish pewter lanterns with filigree detailing, large antique mirrors, field stone walls, and vintage Cuban floor tiles. Private dining available as well.
