Best octopus AND bread pudding we’ve ever had! Everything was delicious and the service was stellar. Absolutely delightful.

Great ambiance, food, service. This place has not lost a beat because of Covid. First dinner out in one year was a great experience. We shall return.

We had a wonderful dinner last night at Joselita. We sat outdoors under an umbrella as the evening gently cooled. It was an unusually quiet Saturday night in Eastern Mkt neighborhood, and with light traffic, the ambience outdoors was very pleasant. The meal -once again - spectacular. We started with gazpacho, which is an amazing blend of gardeny flavors, with a nice chill to transition from the hot summery day. Chicekn liver terrine (my partner’s favorite) was delicious, served with a berry preserve to add a sweet tanginess. Cod fish fritters were served piping hot, sweet and salty. The potato and tuna salad was perfectly okay but not as spectacular as the other dishes. Service was attentive but not pushy. We lingered for a while after to continue our conversation, as there were no customers waiting. It was a really pleasant evening.

This was the perfect last minute/casual date night. The service was excellent and the food was too. We especially enjoyed the cold tuna tapa, the cold scallops tapa and the mushroom crepe.

It’s always a pleasure to dine at Joselito. The good is superb, the staff attentive but not overly so, the ambiance transports you to Spain. One of my favorite places to dine.

We love the food and are willing to occasionally splurge to dine here. I had Gallito cocktail (sweet, grapefruity), another guest had red wine, two others had sparkling sangria which comes with a fruit-packed ice cube which was cool! We ate duck, octopus, mackerel, gazpacho. All fine. Small portions. Expensive.

Outdoor table for 4 was pre-reserved and was fine: small but not too close to other tables.

If dining outdoors, bring insect repellent. Capitol Hill has lots of mosquitoes.

It was nice but the kitchen closed super early and they’ve removed most traditional Spanish tapas from the menu, which is sad! Loved the sangria with the fruit filled ice cube though!

Dinner at Joselito during Restaurant Week was fantastic! The 4 of us ordered 3 different tapas each and shared them. They were all delicious. The cocktails were great and most of all, we took our time. The small plates were brought out just when we were ready for the next course. Loved it.

Eating here was such a great experience. We were seated right away for our reservation. The place was super busy, but service was still personalized. Food was fantastic. The highlights were the sea bass, Iberian pork shoulder, Wayguy bavette, and octopus in the shrimp, mussel and octopus salad. Also enjoyed the Sangrias! Get a pitcher!

I didn’t realize when I made the reservation for 9 that they close at 9! We had a group of 7 and realized the situation after we already ordered our food. I’m sure it was extremely inconvenient for us to be there but everyone was so patient & kind and never made us felt rushed. The food was delicious but the service was the sweetest!

Long before I had a child, I went to Joselito for the 20% happy hour and the delicious food. Now, I came back with our toddler. The food as always was wonderful but the staff went above and beyond to make sure our table was ready with a high chair. Everyone stopped by to say hello, clear the cheerios, and made it a great experience. Customer for life.

Joselito has been a favorite for my wife and me for years but pandemic caution kept us away for 18 months before our recent early dinner outside on a cool-ish, summer evening. Joselito hadn't lost a beat. The familiar server was as professional, friendly and knowledgeable of food and drink menus as ever. Our two different, inventive cold soups were excellent as were our flavorful tapas and delicious main courses of octopus and sea bass. As always, the wine was excellent and well-priced. We immediately realized we had missed Joselito even more than we realized. We'll return soon.

Such a cute and quaint restaurant! Dining here has been on my list for a while, and they did not disappoint. The servers are kind and attentive. The food is delicious, and I love that they offer various sizes for most of their fair. The Tuna Crudo and Chicken Pâté were favorites at the table. The Lamb Shank and Chilean Sea Bass were cooked to perfection. I’ll definitely be returning to explore more of the menu.

Family of 4 enjoyed a delicious brunch - loved the cod fritters especially - and indulged in a glass of white sangria too. Service was excellent and they even created an ice coffee for our picky coffee drinker. Atmosphere was relaxed and the occasion felt "pre-pandemic" festive. Such a treat.
