Excellent dining experience at BocaHad a business lunch at Boca Kitchen, and as usual they did not dissapoint. Service was excellent, food was fantasitc (love the fire roasted mussels and Nor-Cal Flat bread). This was my first time having lunch there as we typically dine at Boca for dinner but it was very good. Fun atmosphere and overall business lunch went very well.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMone of the best stops in south tampgreat for dates, girls' nights and groups. awesome drink menu and great food options...6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMInformal Gourmet ExperienceFrench Fries cooked in Truffel Oil and Duck Fat were the best I have ever eaten! My sandwich was equally delicious.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spotTerrific! Brunch is just superb and the menu is very creative and delicious. Service also very good. Only two possible negatives are the fact that it doesn't open until 1100 on the weekends for brunch (which can be a late start if hungry!) and perhaps the selection of coffees and teas could be more varied and imaginative to match the otherwise imaginative, well thought through and delicious menu. I'll be coming back for more :)6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely incredible. GreatAbsolutely incredible. Great restaurant. Delicious from appetizer to dessert!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, great foodBoca is a very intimate space with dim lighting (and unfortunately too-distracting classic rock background music on this visit.) The service is consistently excellent and the food never disappoints. Local and fresh, most dishes are innovative and nicely plated. Cocktails were strong and well-crafted. The pace of the meal isn't rushed, although sometimes there is a bit of a wait for the bar items. Some tables are very close but others are more private. The outdoor deck is nice but on a fairly busy street (Platt) so it isn't quiet. One of my favorite neighborhood spots, there is something on the menu for everyone.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentFrom the specialty drinks to the dessert, everything was outstanding. My husband ordered the smoked meatloaf and it was melt in your mouth good (yes, I tried it and normally I hate meatloaf). I had the market fish, wahoo on top if perfectly cooked and prepared red quinoa. It was fantastic. Yes, we will be returning.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemWe were surprised by Boca's thoughtfulness in the menu, wine list and the ambience. Everything is organic and recycled/refurbished which makes the atmosphere fun and chic. I had the ahi-tuna which was the best I've had in a long time. Great people and great food that we would definitely come back for.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best dining experiencesOne of the best dining experiences I have had in Tampa over the past few years!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperbOnly had a salad and flat bread but the flavors were amazing.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary TripThe head chef personally came to our table 3x despite the fact that it was a busy Wednesday evening at the restaurant. He could not have been more gracious and attentive to us. Similarly, our server Stephanie was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The food was truly phenomenal (mussels and short rib), and I've eaten in some of the best restaurants in the country. The staff at Boca are a class act and I will definitely go back.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Boca Kitchen!!!I've been to Boca Kitchen four times now, and loved every single experience. The food is delicious and fresh. It's as much local and organic food as they can get so if you're looking for a healthy dining option, this is it! :) They also have delicious sangria's and a great wine and beer selection. I love this place!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMonday Night at BocaWe thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Boca.
Frequent New menu , the freshest ingredients, and well prepared dishes
We had the low calorie flat bread with fresh spinach,chicken, Feta cheese
And wonderful Rasberry vinegarette. We also had the swordfish. Grilled to perfection
Accompanied with red quinoa. Excellent. Server was adorable and well versed with the menu.
Always have trouble with the pompous Hostess. My one criticism
for Boca. Uppedy attitude and not gracious. At least she was paired with a male host who was welcoming and friendly.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Mother's Day BrunchFirst time at Boca...took a risk for Mothers Day...usually go to tried & true...I knew we picked a great spot when they served Tito's vodka as their well vodka in the Bloody Mary's...Boca was really fun, great service, local sourced food was fresh and festive! We are already planning our next visit, this time for dinner...Boca is now on our fav list. Boca was busy and we never felt rushed or pressured. The Kitchen staff worked wonders...From the Bloody Mary's to the Fresh Local Berries in the dessert, the meal was really great. Corned Beef Hash with Duck Eggs...BEST EVER!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food as usualLove the food and ambience at Boca. Our fourth time in the last few months. Our server was good but not as great as the one before. Maybe she was having an off night. Either way, we'll be back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood gemGreat signature selections and always consistent in presentation and taste. Also offers gluten free options. We noticed this time that the menu indicated no modifications to orders which was surprising for this type of restaurant. Never have been disappointed. This was my fourth visit and walked away very happy.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and cool atmosphereEnjoyed our meals immensely; roasted mussels appetizer, salad no. 9, yellow fin Tina and shrimp with GF pasta. It was busy on a Friday night and service was fine but not the most attentive. We look forward to returning and would recommend this great new Tampa dining spot.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA real gem in Hyde Park areaThis is a fabulous restaurant for so many reasons...Great selection of craft cocktails and food selections for foodies at affordable prices. Friendly, attentive service. Trendy ambiance. On our last visit we tried and LOVED the Bone Marrow, the Fire Roasted Mussels, the Purple Watercress Salad, the Oak Grilled Flat Iron Steak and after much deliberation, the Local Fruit and Berry Crumble. We left fat and happy and can't wait to come back again to sample more of this delectable menu.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFarm house eleganceAwesome food, organic and beautifully prepared. Feeling of an elegant farmhouse.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeBoca is easily one of (if not) my favorite restaurants in South Tampa. I have been for both brunch and dinner, and I have never had a bad meal there. My fiance and I come here all the time for a fun dinner out.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, but could be betterLittle things make a difference. Hostess unfriendly and rude. Seemed like we were a bother to her (rolling eyes, staring). A smile can go a long way.
Wait staff was great! Complete opposite of hostess. Friendly, helpful always available.
Food was unique and very good. Healthy options, wide variety, organic and locally grown items.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood diningLively slightly loud atmosphere with a variety of choices on the menu. Three great dinners this night. Excellent short rib, swordfish, and scallops. Quick and efficient service. They are working out all the little kinks from the opening days. Enjoy!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was mine and my fianceIt was mine and my fiance first time to Boca.It was also our anniversary.

Thank you again,
Livia4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMInnovative menu, nice patioInnovative menu, nice patio area. Fresh ingredients, good service.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit,This was our first visit, loved the ambiance the service was great our waitress was well versed with the menu she was able to answer all our questions. We had the flat iron steak , it was amazing would recommend it , while waiting for our food we looked around at other food being delivered to other tables it all looked good , we kept asking the waitress what it was. We definitely will go back . The only critic is that it was a little loud so don't expect to have a quite conversation.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGenerally good food in niceGenerally good food in nice atmosphere. Food can sometimes be uneven. A dish will be great one night and the next week not cooked as well. Flatbreads great when left in oven long enough. They are trying hard and will hopefully iron out the few kinks they have in the kitchen. Definitely give it a try. best to have a reservation if you don't want a long wait.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved most of the foodWe loved most of the food we got. We ordered a soup that was not what we expected at all and ended up not liking it, and our server graciously took it back and subtracted it from our bill. Our server was friendly, polite, and accommodating. We very much enjoyed our experience!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBoca has become a favoriteBoca has become a favorite among my friends! Why?? It's organized, smooth running machine. Never wait (always make reservation), always have GREAT service from moment we step on property. Host area ALWAYS welcoming (even the valet area is friendly, although I never valet). Food phenom, pace perfect, price right. I've never had a bad experience here which is why I come back....with many different types of people....lunch or dinner....always a home run!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and drinks were veryThe food and drinks were very good. In the past, drinks would sometimes take a while to come out, but they must have fixed that issue since we ordered the complex specialty drinks and they all came out in a timely fashion. Te food is always very good and on Easter it was non exceptions. We ordered a variety of standard and menu items off the specials and all were delicious and fulfilling. It was a ver nice experience.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDisappointedThe food was okay as long as you're not a picky eater. When I reserved on open table, it said "bottomless sangria from 4pm-7pm." We got to Boca and the waitress said they haven't offered that in months. It was not accurate on open table. A little disappointed. Also, don't go here unless you are willing to eat the food as it is stated on the menu. They will not remove something from their dishes. For instance, I can't stand onions.... Had to choose something that didnt have them. I couldn't Oder a meal without them.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOrganic & GreatOutstanding menu, great atmosphere, don't miss this restaurant if you seek fresh and organic meals.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEVERYTHING on the menu isEVERYTHING on the menu is fantastic!

They are houghtful about the products they order and the food they serve. Lovely atmosphere -- seems intimate even though there is more room than you might think. Exellent and knowledgeable service both times.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed Boca a lot.. ThisEnjoyed Boca a lot.. This was my fifth time there.. Twice for lunch third time for dinner. Valet parking, seated right away even though we were late for our reservations. Hostess gave us a better table. Team staff excellent. Will be returning a April 11th.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great, menu isThe food was great, menu is difficult to read with the low lighting and the contrast on the menu is difficult. They have some gluten free items, but one appetizer is labeled gluten free (the breads and spreads), but the bread isn't gluten free, just the spreads... so, that was dissappointing, as they didn't offer any substitute to eat the spreads with.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe specialty drinks wereThe specialty drinks were overpriced. I ordered the same drink more than once. It was made different each time.
And mostly ice.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to go back!I have been here twice now, for brunch and dinner and every time was a deliciously filling experience. Highlights include craft beer and cocktails, a good wine list, an eclectic menu, seasonal fresh locally grown ingredients and generous portions. Already making plans to go back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPut this gem on your list. GreatAwesome dinner. Great, interesting selections. Great place to overorder and share plates. 4 of us shared 6 appetizers and 4 entrees . The food was superb, complex comfort food. Fresh ingredients, locally grown. Great vibe. Young hip crowd? People were having a great time . Tampa s lucky to have this place. Can't wait to go back.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, clean, freshAmazing food, clean, fresh and creative preparation and presentation..
