If you have any accessibility needs, you should be aware that there are only high top tables. There is a room in the back with low tops, but they reserve it for private groups. So if you happen to book on a day when they have a private group you will be out of luck.

I’ve never been refused coffee at the end of the meal in any restaurant, this was a first.

I met a business associate for a 6:45 pm dinner on Tuesday. I arrived early, 6:30pm and they seated me. My colleague arrived on time. The meal was fantastic. We had two glasses of wine and when asked for coffee they said we would have to move to the bar because they needed the table. We said we didn’t want to do that, my colleague was finishing her wine and I wanted a coffee, but they asked us to please close out the bill. The time was approximately 8:15. We complied and left. Too bad, that this otherwise great food, good wait staff (wasn’t there fault), somewhat noisy, but fun restaurant treated customers so rudely.

Can’t recommend them.

Everything was great. My only complaint, and is probably my fault, didn't know when is a group you can't pick from the menu, chef decide for you... but everything was delicious. And yes, we had many leftovers home for the next day!

Food was really just so so. Drinks are way over priced. Stay away from tables close to the kitchen if you can not tolerate the high pitched shouts from the kitchen.

The half baked chicken was off today. The flavor was off and the outside was not nice and crispy as it normally is. We dine here almost weekly, so we can tell the difference. Not sure what happened. :-(

First time at Boaueria West. Cheese board and wine was good. Tapas tasted frozen. Was not impressed. Wouldn’t recommend.

I am a woman of a particular age and feel the restaurant design is stupid. As big as this place is, Why can there no bathroom in the actual restaurant? Why do you have to go next door into the hotel and then down a couple flights of stairs? I won’t go back to this location. Also, I hate the seats. My server was wonderful as well as the hostess.

The cocktail with the chilli and hint of salt was exceptional. The food was great, in particular the shrimps which were bathing in melted butter, this is how 'love-food' should be.

Highly recommended!

Lunch was terrific. From the moment we walked in, our table was great, service, ambiance and especially the food, all awesome! This is my second time here. Can't wait to return. The atmosphere is fun and lively at dinner and lunch is a different vibe with many people from work. So great all.

Noisy, tight seating, small plate variety of food at NYC prices. Full bar with limited selections. Connected with a hotel, which is where you have to go to use the restrooms downstairs.

5 small plates, 5 cocktails, $155 w/tip.

Although the spaces are a bit cramped and there’s not much space to put your coat and purse when you’re seated at a high table, the food is spectacular and the service is wonderful.

We went on Thanksgiving day, as my kids were in town. It was our first time there, and didn't know what to expect We were all very happy with the experience.
We shared an assortment of tapas, and a turkey plate as well. It was all delicious. Our server, Rob, was terrific too. We will be back.

It's a hip and happening Spanish tapas restaurant.
Cocktails are tasty.
Seating is tight so there isn't a lot of room for guests and coats when it's cold out.
And be careful not to order too much … as the tables for 2 are on the small side and doesn't allow for more than a couple plates.
The service is good... food comes out as it's ready so if you want food to come out in a certain order... you should ask your server about that.
They did a good job about getting us out by the time we needed in order to make our show.

Excellent food and service. We did the brunch which I highly recommend. It was loud because all of the tables are very close and it was busy, but the overall experience made it worth the visit. We will definitely return.

Really wonderful food! Pretty tightly squeezed in, space-wise, but I guess that's New York City. You have to go over to the hotel next door to use the restroom; said restroom somewhat sketchy, FYI.
