BOKA Restaurant + Bar Ratings and Reviews

My wife and took advantage of Boka's Seattle Restaurant Week menu. All three courses were superb. We especially liked the smoked salmon sashimi appetizer. Mark, our server, was attentive without being intrusive. Very willing get answers from the kitchen about ingredient and preparation questions we posed.

The meal started out fine, with an attentive and patient server allowing the two of us, who had not seen each other in 20 years, to get reacquainted. An ice tea fan, I asked if the restaurant brewed its own tea, and he assured me that they did. What he did not tell me is that coffee grounds had also shared the same brewing equipment and distinct coffee taste was evident in the tea. (Fortunately I always carry my own, and he did not object to bringing a glass of ice for me.)
Then the food came. Each of us had ordered two small courses, but he brought it all at once. For my guest, who ordered soup and salad, this might have been acceptable. For me, with soup and a hot appetizer, it was not. I was clearly taken aback, but the server did not offer to remove one and re-fire it later.
I have been there once before, for the equivalent of a burger. A simple order might be fine.
I had invited this person to one of my regular places but her preference was for somewhere near her office. I go to new places with good friends to try them out before attempting to bring dates or prospective clients: this lunch is an example of why I do.

We used to come here before every afternoon Seahawks game. The service used to be great, loved out servers, now, they're okay. Pricing is out of control now. Wine is way over priced and a CUP of coffee was $6. Completely unacceptable. Unfortunately, we won't be going back.

BOKA is the restaurant for the hotel we stayed in, Hotel 1000. We had our first Seattle meal here, after flying in from NYC, and it was decent, and somewhat innovative. The breakfasts were better, where we found healthy, and preferably plainer fare. Service was acceptable.

Boka was one of our go-to places for pre-Seahawks brunch. It had good food, good location and a nice parking package. But this last Sunday was the last time we will go. The food is still pretty good, but the service has hit an all-time low. While our reservation was ready when we walked in, what should have been no longer than an hour for brunch, ended up taking almost 2 hours. Our waitress began with a snarky remark and then caught herself and tried making up for it the rest of the time. It took forever to get some eggs and not all of our meals arrived together -- a couple were up to 10 minutes after the first ones. All in all, we were really disappointed. We literally had to run to make the kick-off. Bummer, since there aren't many great places to go pre-game.

Went to BOKA last year while visiting Seattle & it was quite good. This time not so much there was hardly anyone there at 7pm on a Saturday night that should have been a sign The black cod was dry & over salted I'm not sure if it was really black cod.

I wasn't impressed, came for bottomless mimosas for a birthday brunch celebration. Learned they did away with that option sad. The food was bland not enough selection for brunch. I guess I found the server a little short, curt/ rude. Didn't seem friendly our eager to ask question my large party had (11). Again, this was not a good bday choice. The ambiance was nice!

I have eaten at BOKA several times and generally it is pretty good. The last time we went, however, the service was dreadful. Our waiter was really slow and did not even take our order for about 15 minutes after we were seated. This is not acceptable for a lunch in downtown Seattle.

BOKA really lacked in the service department. While all the staff were nice and pleasant (gaining them an extra star), this was one of the slowest services we experienced as regular restaurant diners. The food is edible, but I don't think that should be the standard for a restaurant to go by, purely edible food. As is common with hotel restaurants, the menu is unoriginal and boring and everything is very overpriced. Would return to drink or with a menu revamp.

I was a disappointed in the service and food here at Boka. I have gone here since I moved to Seattle from Chicago 10 years ago and I rarely have I been upset or disappointed with its food and service. However, this time around, service was lagging (we waited 15 minutes after my friend arrived) to get our orders in and the waitress kept checking if our bill was ready to be paid (how rude!). Food-wise - the good-tasting food that was once offered (like the Blackened Salmon Tostata) was reduced to sandwiches with no flavor yet prices raised. That is very disappointing. The only thing that saved the meal was the truffle fries which we paid extra for. It will take a lot for me to return back here and that is very sad to me.

We had great service. My colleague is very picky and our wait person went out of his way to accommodate her every need. The restaurant is lovely, the food selection varied and the quality excellent. I wish they had more gluten free options, but I would say that about most restaurants. From the hostess to the valet, everyone is well trained and courteous. Bathrooms rock.
Our experience was incredibly disappoint ...
Our experience was incredibly disappointing. We had a reservation for 3 people and were still asked to wait 10-15 minutes for our table. Then when we were shown to our table it wasn't large enough for 3 people to sit comfortably. Incidentally I noticed several other large tables with only two diners at them.
Once we moved to a larger table, service was very slow. We were sitting outside and felt like we were mostly forgotten.
Finally, we ordered a cup of coffee for the end of the meal (with a long wait) and it was $6.00 for a cup of coffee. This is absolutely ridiculous.
While the food was fine (nothing special) - I would not return nor recommend.
Good for Business Lunch
Took a few clients for lunch here as we were staying across the street at the Alexis. Outside seating was great, plenty of shade and spacious enough for our group. Waitress was fantastic and answered all our questions about the menu. Well priced for the value.

I love BOKA. It's such a great atmosphere for all sorts of occasions. I mainly use it not for myself, but to send my team's client and interview breakfast/lunch meetings to, and everyone always has positive feedback. I am a downtown local, so I have had breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinners here on my own, with my husband, with a group, or with one or two friends. If I had to make just one recommendation for BOKA it would be to try the Bear Veggie Burger- it is phenomenal!!
Great for a Business Lunch
Great restaurant for a business lunch. Always a table available and the food is always consistently good. My only complaint was that I ordered a cup of soup as an appetizer and it came together with the meal. I hate it when they do that.

LOVED IT!! Everything here was amazing! Had the most fun server/bartender who made my experience great! Every dish was perfect and delicious. I will absolutely be back, and recommend this place highly. Great bar scene as well.

The food was ok. They overcharged my credit card. I had to call repeatedly and they said they'd send me a check. (Why not just put it back on my credit card?) It's been 3 months and they've still not fixed my overcharge.
Easter was okay
First let me start out by saying that place is so cute. We all arrived about 20 min before our original time and the hostess sat us quickly which I loved. The food was sub par. everyone's food was kind of cold. and we waited for a long time for our order when the place wasn't busy at all. They had on the menu that they serve bottomless mimosas during the weekends ( the main reason I booked the place) to only be told when we arrived and ordered our drinks that they don't do that on holidays. Which I wish they would have posted on their website or even change their menu's for the day. Because at the bottom on the menu that all of us received stated Bottomless - $10. I just wish the experience was a little better due to it being a holiday and having someone from out of town with us.
Another good surprise In Seattle
I hit Boka with a local friend on a good night - St. Pat's. It was sparsely populated and quiet so we could easily catch up with each other. The casual food was good and the service was excellent. They said it can be noisy when there are parties or sports events, so I would call in advance if you want a quiet place. It was within walking distance of my hotel and I had expected so-so food. It was much better than that and there was LOTS of it. Had the fish tacos and could not eat anything else.
Boka gets a 10
Had not been to Boka before but been by it a few times so decided to try for a business lunch and was very happy I did. Great location for downtown and they even valet park if you need it. Menu is terrific and server was super, professional, friendly, responsive. Enjoyed everything and will not hesitate to return for lunch or dinner. Highly recommend! Boka gets a 10.
Noisy and food was ok
Restaurant noise level is too high! Ssh!! I am all for someone having a fun time but when people are heckling so loud I can hear who I am talking too it's an issue.
Staff was great, but it would have been nice to have them talk to each other. Kept on being asked for water when we just had our cups filled up and then someone brought us a bottle of water....well we were done with our dinner by then. At least that should have been given at the beginning of our dinner.
Overall noise level was way too noisy. Most likely won't come back because of this.
Additionally your Boka burger has zero flavor to it. Even added an egg and bacon, still tasteless.
Please update your menu
Menu needs to be updated. Food selections are minimal. This restaurant has changed in the last few years. There isn't anything on the current menu I would come back for. Nor would I recommend this restaurant to a friend until the menu changes.
