A word from Boca
Latin Cuisine served in the Tapas Format.

Shawn Tierney, founder describes Boca as “Latin Freestyle” - a concept that pulls from the distinct flavors, colors and sensations of the Latin world, including Spain and Portugal, South and Central America, Mexico, Cuba and Puerto Rico - without restrictions. The name Boca goes further than the simple meaning (mouth in Spanish) to encompass the tingling sensation of heat and bold, complex flavor profiles that one experiences while eating Latin food.

A dramatic interior re-design by Charles Stuhlberg Gallery combined with art on display from Gallery de Novo and Gail Severn Gallery has created an atmosphere that is fun, vibrant and energetic.

    We enjoyed our first visit to Boca, trying many of the tapas and dishes by sharing them around the table. The food came at a nice pace, not too hurried and there was plenty on each plate to sample. Highlights were the ribs, trout, asparagus, and meatballs. The flatbread -- island something -- was delicious as well. Our service was a bit spotty, especially as the place became crowded, but they were always nice and friendly. The venue was great -- music an added bonus and certainly energized the already hopping place. Only downside was it was somewhat smoky. When we inquired, we learned there are wood burning ovens and this was the reason. It was noticeable, but not enough to make us leave. And we were happy we didn't! We'd definitely return!

    Dined on 3/7/2014
    We've been coming to Ketchum for years and have so many standby restaurants it was hard to try a new one. But this place now goes tot the top of the list. Many of the dishes can be shared, which is a plus for me as I get to try more. The flavors of the dishes were divine, with some exotic tangy spices, peppers and citrus....and not as heavy as American food. We particularly loved the arugula and avocado salad, the smoked trout and the smoked ribs. There was a light sugar crust (as in a creme brulee( on the broiled bananas ( of the broiled banana split)... don't miss it! The serano ham wrapped asparagus with truffle oil infused balsamic was so deliciious.

    Boca is one of our favorite restaurants in Sun Valley. The food is different and terrific, the service is great and the ambience is fun, colorful and inviting. We love the Tapas menu because we can try more things in smaller servings and everything we've had there is delicious, and often not what you would find on a typical dinner menu.

    Dined on 2/22/2014
    Boca is one of our favorite restaurants in Sun Valley. The ambience, service and food make this restaurant a real gem. Some nights they have a fabulous trio with guitar music that is a real treat while dining. The tapas are outstanding. We especially love the arugula avocado salad, special flatbreads, jumbo prawns and ribs. Top it off with the banana split to share. The wine list is excellent. We dine there several times when we are in sun valley.

    We dined at Boca two times during our two week time in Ketchum, ID,and chose to go back for Valentines Day after our first experience. The food was creative and delicious and our service by Milagros was outstanding. The live music added a nice touch and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We will definitely dine with them again on our next visit. It is rare to have such interesting fare for such reasonable prices. The wines were also great for the price points. It really does make you feel welcome when the staff remembers your name. A fine dining experience.

    Good spot to get small plates to share. Very creative dishes. The baby back pork ribs are great. And don't miss the Serrano Ham wrapped Grilled Asparagus with Balsamic Truffle Infusion!!! Interesting wines, many of which are priced affordably. We always enjoy the music (guitar and bongos) very much. A class operation.

    Great selection of cocktails, tasty food, ample options for seating, good bar (could be a little deeper on selections but solid!), great attentive service. Outdoor seating is awesome in the non-winter months as well, but no Baldy view.

    All tapas we tried were fabulous! The atmosphere, Latin duo playing live music, personable server with honest suggestions...we can't wait to go back. We're only in Ketchum once a year, bummer, wish it was more often just so we could patronize this awesome restaurant with such great flavors. Thanks, Boca!

  • We celebrated New Years Eve
    OpenTable Diner Since 2001VIP
    Dined on 12/31/2013
    We celebrated New Years Eve here with two other couples and shared many of the small plates. Liked it so much we went back a few days later, sat in the bar and tried some more dishes. Among our favorites were the Island flatbread, shrimp, and asparagus. For large plates, the salmon was terrific. The live music made the experience even more festive.

    Boca offers a wide selection of somewhat unique tapas. It enables the diner to make some different choices without forcing the meal to become ordinary. Past experience has taught us to order a few items at a time as their kitchen is very speedy. We have learned to control the pace of the meal. The wine list offers a variety of choices at a wide price range.

  • If want a little of everything...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 12/27/2013
    This restaurant was very good. Food was delicious. If you don't mind sharing and want a little taste of everything - this is the place for you. The live band was a little loud at one point and we couldn't hear each other talking but besides that it was a very enjoyable meal. Would definitely go back again. Yummy drinks too!!!
