The staff was over the top amazing -- from the greeting at the door to our server, Andrew, everyone was so friendly and welcomed us back because I mentioned in the note that we were celebrating 6 months of engagement (an engagement that happened at the same table we were seated at!) The food was, of course, delicious, and I can't wait to celebrate many more years at Boca!

Always enjoy going to Boca. Two things I would say about this trip to Boca's
1. We did not care for our table when we arrived and they immediately switched us to a section of the restaurant that we prefer ( no problem)
2. I made the reservation and stated it was our 41st wedding anniversary but no mention was made to congratulate us on the occasion by the host or the waiter. That was unusual.

We keep returning to excellence in preparation, service and taste. Wife loves the ability to choose small plates, while I an enjoy the fuller plate. Selection is great, as are wines that pair well. Well paced service - no rush to get you out.
The upper level dining area was beautifu ...
The upper level dining area was beautiful and relaxing. The mirror along the side wall gave those of us facing the wall/mirror a nice view of the restaurant too. The service was excellent and each of the courses were delicious. We loved the opportunity to select the tasting portion for many of the pasta and main dishes, it enabled us to try more things without getting too full, too fast. Our waitress was well versed at describing each dish (ask for each dish to be explained, it really helps) and made good wine suggestions.

The Blue Fin Crudo and Short Rib tartare Appetizers tasted fantastic. Everything hit the mark except the size of the entree. I had the Amish Chicken Risotto which was superb, but there was very little risotto for an entree.
Service was first class.

Our family was in from the West Coast. We asked our service after dinner if they had Graeters black raspberry chocolate chip ice cream. They said No. Fifteen minutes later one of the servers put dishes of that ice cream on our table. Someone had obviously run to the Graeters store by the fountain , bought the ice cream and served it to us for dessert. Now that's service!

Wow. I have heard amazing things about this place but the experience far surpassed my already high expectations. Not only was the restaurant beautiful, spacious, and relaxing but the service was superb.
Every single food and drink we ordered was amazing. So much flavor, perfect portions, and unique spins on classic meals.
Can't wait to find an excuse to come back.

Boca never lets us down - a perfect meal and perfect server, Brooke. If you get the opportunity, you should request her service. We were very impressed and happy that the potato soufflés and brussel sprout salad have found their way back to the menu. They listened to their customers! Yum!

As we have come to expect from the owners of Sotto and Nada, Boca provided unparalleled service and atmosphere. Brett was our server, and he provided details of the various dishes that left us wanting them all. Each dish that we had were equally rich and divine. We cannot wait to go back and try other dishes.

We absolutely loved the ambience and decor - sat upstairs near the window where we enjoyed the fading evening light and the sparkle of the chandelier. There were three of us and we all ordered something different. We appreciated being able to order "small plates" and half portions, which meant we could sample more items on the menu. The seared scallops and brussels sprouts, duet of duck, Branzino and pomme soufflé were our favs, but everything was delicious and beautifully presented! The wine list, too, was outstanding with offerings in every price range. It was a busy Saturday night but we were seated promptly and overall the service was excellent. We loved the "old" Boca, but this newer location in downtown Cincinnati is a definite success!

We were in Cincinnati for the Ringo concert and turned it into a mini vacation. We had reservations for 5:00. It was not busy. We had the small portion of bolognese. The pasta was great as well as the sauce. The chef sent us a free appetizer that was very good. The service was very good. We would come here again.

We loved every dish we ordered: tuna crudo, haricot vert salad, duck breast, branzino, and the s'mores dessert. The service was just about perfect: there when we needed them and un-intrusive otherwise. We thought the food was fabulous, and we had such an enjoyable evening that we have already made a reservation to go back with out of town visitors in 2 months. Cincinnati has a lot of really good restaurants now, but Boca is the very best of the bunch.

While the temperature was kept a bit on the cool side for our taste, everything else about our dinner at Boca was wonderful. The food was excellent!! Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful. The restaurant itself is beautiful. A little pricier than our average night out, but the portion sizes were good. Will definitely go again for a special occasion.

Lindsay was our server. She was very attentive as were all of the staff. She answered all of our questions & accommodated any food issues we had to deal with. A special place to celebrate my husband's birthday. My husband kept raving about it. He doesn't do that very often! Would love to go again!

I dined here for my boyfriend's birthday. I had called about a week ahead to request a table upstairs and was ultimately seated downstairs, however, that is my only complaint. The restaurant was beautiful, bar service was perfect, food was delicious, and our server was probably the best we have ever had (we eat out often). It was a very nice experience. Thanks BOCA team!
