Reviews for El Boqueron


Always fun, always cheap, and always delivering big portions of food, El Boqueron is the type of Spanish restaurant that sustained generations of New Yorkers, but is now largely extinct. El Boqueron never got the memo though.

Excellence is their trademark...... – It's a great romantic restaurant with outstanding food! Avarage price: $40 p.p.

A great friday night – On a casually friday night, my boyfriend and I wanted some authentic Spanish food, so we decided El Boqueron. As soon as we walked in we were greeted very friendly by the manager. Later, we ordered a pitcher of sangria, as a result it was the best sangria we had ever drank. We didn't know what to order so the kind waiter suggested a few of his favorites. They were all great. At the end of the meal we ordered a "crema catalana" which brought about a dance show. All together it was delightful and an unforgetable night.

Lucky to have in Astoria! – El Boqueron is very romantic, the service is extroardinary, and the food is mouth watering. They really go out of their way to please you. Everyone is very pleasant and treat you like royalty- which brings me to the subject of prices- maybe a bit pricy compared to most restaurants in astoria but you get way more then you pay for! May I also add the desserts are excellent- I don't have a sweet tooth so I hardly ever eat dessert but I will never pass it down when I'm here. You usually don't need reservations but my boyfriend and I went there on Valentines Day with reservations and had to wait a bit... so I would reccommend making rezzie's on holidays. Overall- excellent and lucky to have in Astoria! If this place was in the city it would be 4 times as expensive for what they have to offer.

Don't have to go to the city for Spanish – Walking up to the place, we had no idea how much room there was inside. I hadn't had tapas in years and my boyfriend never had, so we went with one of the maaaany specials the waiter listed for us, a seafood combination. While not the best seafood ever, it was flavorful and simple. We also had a couple items from the tapas menu that were just completely satisfying. The service was impeccable, and they seemed excited to encourage us to return because they gave us complimentary sherry at the end of the meal. The sangria was very refreshing and did the trick. Good quiet place for a date if you don't care that the walk-up includes a great view of the N train. It may not be a cheap date, but it's better than the prices at tapas places downtown.
