BOCA Ratings and Reviews
The food and service were outstanding. I recommend ordering small plates for the table so that everyone can sample. We shared many dishes and they were all delicious. The seafood risotto was one of my favorites but the scallops and brussel sprouts were also good. My favorite dessert was the peanut butter gelato. I recommend this restaurant for business dinners and special occasions. The staff was wonderful and very friendly.
Flawless. Completely lives up to the hype. We tried several dishes and everything came out amazing. Our server was enthusiastic about the menu, gave great recommendations, and was super friendly. The dining room is beautiful. A must try for a special occasion.
It was very cold at our table but they did try to warm it up a bit.
Our server was excellent. The branzino was mediocre. The gluten free pasta Didn't have enough bolognese sauce, but I did appreciate that they have a gluten free pasta available. They should have a gluten free bread.
My husband and I dine at BOCA relatively frequently and are never left anything but completely satisfied. Our recent dinner to celebrate the upcoming birth of our third baby was no exception. In fact, somehow the food gets better and better each visit. The service was impeccable and the ambiance was second to none as usual. 1000% recommend BOCA to anyone craving an amazing dining experience.
Boca used to be my hands-down favorite restaurant in Cincinnati. Not so sure anymore. Prices have continued to rise and the food was good, not great. Salmon was fishy smelling/tasting. Served red wine chilled - I get that for a beaujolais or even a merlot, but not for a cab. Ambiance and service still as good as it gets. Enjoy!
The food was amazing all be it small portions. We sampled several items and our waiter set it up as a 5 course meal (included dessert). Oysters, Grilled Romaine, Beet Salad, Wild Boar, Seafood Risoto, Salmon and finished with some crazy good chocolate cake/snicker bar thing.
If you don't enjoy seafood, your menu choices are limited. The beet salad was excellent! And the butternut squash soup had just the right amount of sweetness. Fennel added a tasty touch to the bread. Definitely worth the carbs. In the past, I have enjoyed the tenderloin. However, it is now served with crab, more seafood....Our server was excellent. She was knowledgeable and shared information to help us make our choices. She also offered alternatives to food choices offered.
Three of us for a business dinner in downtown Cincinnati had a great experience. Scallops and brussel sprout salad was outstanding. This was followed up with the scallop and lobster risotto. The Boca burger with the puffed fries was a real treat. A very old historic building added to the evening.
I recently organized a surprise 30th birthday dinner for my fiancé with a group of 15 and the entire staff at Boca was absolutely amazing! They were accommodating in every aspect of the process and kept the surprise alive until the very last second. Our server was also incredible! Just attentive enough and went above and beyond with the birthday cake I brought in. This restaurant has been one of our favorites for awhile but this last experience has cemented that into stone...we will be back time and time again.
This was our first visit to Boca and it won't be our last! We had a truly enjoyable evening! The service, the food, the ambiance were perfection! You could actually hold a conversation and enjoy your wine without struggling to hear someone at your own table! It's simply lovely and inviting, warm and friendly! For something special, dine at Boca! For a break from the world, head to their bar!
Tables were a bit close and made it hard to have private conversation. Service and food were outstanding. I loved the smaller portions that were offered. So much on the menu we wanted to order and we were able to try more because of small portion options. We will be back soon!
Beautiful space, excellent food, attentive service. A wonderful meal with friends. The foie gras macaron is amazing. The sole was very well prepared and nicely presented. Butternut squash soup was nicely done. Our table shared several deserts - all very nice. The bread is really good, too. It was a flawless meal. Cannot wait to return.
Be careful what you wish for at Boca because it might happen. The service here was the best I have seen in years. Jennifer was amazing. She made the night fun. Thank you for the pickles and onesie for my daughter and her new child who arrives in August. It will be worn with pride.
That being said, the food was great but little pricey. Though I can't complain. We will be going back. My business associates loved the experience.
