Place is busy and noisy but in a social, fun sort of way. We didn't have a reservation but they got us in. Service was very good. Food was good, we sat at the bar watching them cook, which was fun and made me more hungry. Their sangria was too sweet for me but generally nice. A bit on the... More

The place is cute , its not a buddakan or Tao. But good ambience. We ordered the prix fix menu for $45 each. The food was way too much. We had to tell them to just get 1 plate for the last 3 courses. And we are all hearty eaters. The service was also very good and pleasant. The sangria... More

What an incredible experience to start an evening NY Soho! Awesome food and wine and a service at it's best. So good, really recommended - but without a reservation, no chance... ;)

I just went to Spain a few months ago and tried a few Paella restaurants...I love Spanish food! And this place has great tapas and paella, it reminds me of Spain trip. It is as good as the restaurants I went in Spain! Service is also excellent, they are friendly and always available. I like the atmosphere as well. I... More

excellent Spanish tapas and a beautiful, uniquely designed restaurant. Perfect for a leisurely week day late lunch. Going for a second visit next week.

first of all: book a table because otherwise it's quite impossible to eat before 11 p.m!! secondly: pick any appetizers, they are all delicious, reflecting the original Spanish tasting! thirdly: paella, paella and paella! it costs more than all the other dishes but it worth!!

I was in Boqueria last week and although it didn't impress me, I enjoyed the food and the ambience. The paella is good; I guess you can't go wrong with that one.

Place is nice, food was really good. Menu has variety and plenty of vegetarian options too. The only minor issue was speed since this was a work lunch.

This is my third time at the Boqueria and once again I was blown away, not just by the taste, but also the presentation of the food. The tapas are so tasty and we sat at the bar by the kitchen and watched all the dishes being prepared. I would much rather sit there than at one of the regular... More

The food is great and we were really surprised. This restaurant seems to be a little bit expensive, but the food is delicious and the waiters are really kind and fast. We appreciated the location too: simple and elegant!!! Great place.

Staying in SoHo

Neighbourhood Profile
Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore by foot. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district –majestic cast-iron architecture everywhere you look. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city. The pretty streets of Nolita (North of Little Italy) offer a more sedate vibe, with plenty of tiny boutiques and hip restaurants to seek out.
