    I was diss appointed that there was no pan con tomato- classic Spanish appetizer. Gaspachio was good. Lubina was not impressive. Just ok. Will not come back.

    We were celebrating a birthday and invited another couple. We were so well taken care of, and the dishes we ordered were more than delicious. Enselada David is refreshing, the pork loin was a favorite. Wine recommendations were perfect for our food choices. Their red wine selection is always pleasing. The excellent was this establishment treats its guests crowned the evening. A special treat and we'll be back.

    Excellent service, great ambience. Food was just meh. Small portions, way overpriced. Cauliflower soup was excellent. All other dishes were mediocre at best. Wanted to love it because it was so well-reviewed, but would not go back again.

    I was trying to go there for a while, the ambience is great and the place really remind me home. The food was good and tasty, a bit expensive, but is DC. The service tho really bad. The waiter had an attitude and keep rolling his eyes to us every time we would ask for another plate, or when we we have questions and that definitively impacted the experience. Overall a decent place but will be only a one time experience

    Joselito's has rightly become one of Capitol Hill's most popular restaurants. The cooking is absolutely first-rate, the ambience informal but gracious, and the service helpful and unassuming. Moreover, the menu offers a wide range of culinary possibilities and prices, with most meals offered as small, medium, or large plates. A great place to have an excellent lunch or dinner or to host one. Viva Joselito!

    We dined at Joselita during my sister-in-law’s wedding weekend. We sat outside because we had guests who cannot dine inside currently, so cannot speak to inside noise, but inside looked charming. The service was unfussy, but friendly. The menu is a delicious array of Spanish tapas—which can be ordered as tapas, medios, or a family size. We ordered a variety of sizes, based on what everyone wanted to try. Some of the stand-outs were the tuna crudo, the sea-bass and the soy marinaded duck breast. The cocktails were refreshing; I had Cien Sonatas, which was gin, rosemary and yuzu—perfect on a summer evening (and the glassware choices were vintage in style). Nice wine list—not huge, but some good choices. I will definitely return—there is a Hemingway happy hour which would draw me to Capitol Hill.

    Joselito manages to be an elegant spot on a stretch of Pennsylvania Ave.that is not very elegant. On Tuesday night it felt a little understaffed in terms of service but nothing serious. And the food is glorious.

    Wonderful food. I am vegan, but sometimes eat vegetarian at restaurants. The vegetarian options were wonderful, although a couple of vegan options would have been nice. Ambiance and service were wonderful. Service waiters were dressed very sharply. Alcoholic beverages were well worth their cost. I went for restaurant week and I'm very happy I did. It was marvelous and great for value. Noise level was higher than I would have liked, but it wasn't terrible. Again, ambiance and aesthetic was perfect. Very romantic.

    The food was very good - service was slow but they only had one server for the entire floor! He did the best he could and although service was slow it wasn’t horrible given the staffing they had available and it certainly didn’t impact our enjoyment of the meal!

    Ambiance was bistro-like, food is truly outstanding. Very authentic gazpacho, tapas were super, everything fresh and beautifully prepared. Cocktails were delish, loved them and the sangria. We came here because another place were wanted to go to nearby was closed, so glad we found Joselito’s will definitely be back!

    The iberico and manchego were great! The tuna crudo was really good. But these are plates you can find everywhere else and usually good. The octopus was chewy, needed flavor and salt. Coffee was served cold, even though it was a cortado. Do not recommend.

    Love Joselito's dishes, service, and ambience. Most of the dishes come in three sizes, tapas, entree, family. If you have 2-4 people, highly recommend ordering tapas sizes. This way, you get to taste all the different dishes. Both their cold and hot dishes are delicious. Wagyu beef tastes great. Duck breast is tender and juicy. Thumbs up!
