BOCA Ratings and Reviews

I am lactose intolerant and usually have no issues in restaurants cause they have many options in the menu that are dairy free. I was surprised that in this restarurant 100% of the dishes had butter which is surprising given they have pasta, fish and meat. I ended up having to eat an off the menu green salad and a plain 6oz grilled steak for the ridiculous prive of 150 dolars per person! They will definitively not see me again.

Everything about the restaurant is graceful, elegant, and authentic. The waitstaff are friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to assist diners with any need they may have. The dishes are outstanding and feature a delicate balance of creativity and simple elegance. The lobster risotto is simply superb, the pommes soufflées are a fun take on fried potatoes, short-rib tartare is mouth-watering, and you won't find a better pasta dish anywhere else in the city (well, maybe in their sister restaurant, Sotto, downstairs!). It is a great spot for a casual night out but elegant enough for a romantic evening or special celebration.

Superb cuisine! The best in Cincinnati consistently . I especially like one being able to order half portion, so that after two oyster Rockerfeller, I enjoyed a half portion of lobster risotto and a half portion of Atlantic cod. I felt comfortably satisfied with several different taste flavor sand textures but not stuffed or bloated.

The food was truly amazing. Everything we had, from cocktails to dessert, was outstanding. We went for our anniversary, and they seated us in a private round booth, which really made the evening special. The service was top-notch; friendly but very professional. This was a great place for a special event, and lived up to our expectations in every way.

Absolutely superb evening. The dinner was meant to be a celebration more for myself, though I was highly impressed with the attention to detail given to my grandmother. Not only did she have a couple aversions to the menu, but she is a very light eater. She ordered one course while my grandpa and I both ordered 3. Lindsay made sure she had something in front of her at all times. Top notch evening. Lindsay could not have taken better care of us.

We had dinner at Boca for our wedding anniversary. Definitely one of the best meals I've had this year. We ordered cocktails. I had the Madison, a very good take on a Manhattan, my wife had the Revelry which she did not like. I tasted it and thought it was great. Anyway, our server replaced it with a well made sidecar. We had the Pommes Soufflees, an homage to the Maisonette, where my wife and I went on our first date in 1974!
I had the seafood risotto and the beef tenderloin - WOW, amazingly good. Dessert was the coconut panna cotta. It could have had more coconut. Our server also gave us a free chocolate mousse on the house, it was excellent.
Outstanding meal, great place, definitely worth the expense.

I liked the modern take on the dishes however I didn't think the portion matched the price. I also was a little disappointed that our server did not inquire why we were dining there. It was our first visit and our ten year anniversary so it was a special occasion.

Boca was at the top of my list for places that I have been wanting to try. It was well worth the wait and money! Our server was knowledgable and attentive, the sommelier recommended a perfect wine when our preference was unavailable, and the food was outstanding. We had the short rib tartare, chicken risotto, and duck breast. It was the perfect amount to share without being too full. While it seems a little pricey, it is worth the money. Overall I was very happy and look forward to going back sometime.

We had a lovely evening with excellent service. Our waiter Kyle really took care of us. We were celebrating our anniversary and were treated to the Maisonette Room, complimentary champagne and customized menu. The food of course was outstanding. Could not have asked for a better evening.

We thought the food was very good. Not quite good enough for the very high price point. Even the tasting portions were far too small for the price. Charging for bread service is tacky. The ambiance, open kitchen and table settings were all very nice. Our server was knowledgeable but didn't seem to appreciate our business and was on his high horse.

Actually surpassed my expectations. I've been going to Boca since it started in their old Northside location then Oakley and then this prime time spot. Went their when it first opened and had an excellent experience. Since then many friends have been and given disappointing reviews. A friend was in town so we snagged a table to give it another try after a couple years and were blown away with every aspect of an excellent dining experience.
