A word from BOCA
Boca is Chef David Falk's ode to Europe. It is a one of a kind dining experience marrying world-class, chef driven cuisine with gracious service at an affordable price point. Boca's design couples contemporary european and american stylings with touches of rusticity in an airy urban space. The elegant and inviting surroundings welcome guests for an afternoon cocktail, a small bite before a great show at nearby theaters, a casual dinner with friends, or a luxurious night out in Cincinnati.

Diner Reviews
  • "We went for the first time last night and it was amazing. Great service, great food and an overall great experience. Would highly recommend!!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We had one of our favorite meals ever at this restaurant and will definently be back. Having a tasting portion allowed us to try two different things as well as an appetizer/salad. Eclectic and unique for sure."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Second time at Boca. Service excellent both visits. Food very good but even full size entree portions are small. Do like that you can order tasting portions of all entrees. Dislike unisex bathrooms especially for a fine dining restaurant. Feel as though this restaurant can't decide if it is a bistro like the original Boca in Northside or a fine dining restaurant"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Getting the tasting serving of several dishes is the way to go. The food is elegantly presented and every bite is delicious. I highly recommend the frites and the watermelon tuna."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "I am not a food critic, but a fan of fine dining. Boca lived up to its reputation. It was a special occasion the night I dined there, and the excellence of the food and service enhanced the specialness of the evening. We were treated like royalty and served within our time constraints. Ever restaurant should aspire to Boca's standard."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "It is just an ok place. Food was salty! Very noisy place. Wont be going there again. I will not recommend to anyone."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Had a wonderful meal. Ambiance is outstanding and the staff was very helpful, but not intrusive. Great eating experience."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "This was my first time at Boca, but will not be my last. The restaurant was elegant, the service impeccable, and the food was out of this world. Our waiter David was extremely knowledgable and did not disappoint with his recommendations. I was surprised at how reasonable the prices were. They offer a smaller portion of their dishes which was a fantastic concept so you can try multiple plates. If I could eat here everyday, I would."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Outstanding food from start to finish, great ambience. We even recommended it for co workers the next night."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Boca was one of the best restaurants I have been to in a long long time. From the moment we came through the front door to the moment we left, it was one of the best experiences in friendly prompt service to a great meal. Love the 1/2 portions, lets you try another entree with out too much food, great portions."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "My wife and I decided to try Boca for the first time for my birthday on Saturday and were far from disappointed! The service was amazing and the food was the same. We appreciated the server's suggestions on both wine and food and she offered to course things appropriately so we didn't feel rushed. I would highly reccommend!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Our first time there. Made a special occasion even more special. Food delicious. Service gracious. Love the idea of the tastes. All in all, a great evening."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Boca's atmosphere and service are beyond expectations. The wait staff are very attentive, yet subtle and professional. This is definitely a special place for a gourmet dining experience. However, I have to say, expect to pay a lot of money for miniscule portions of albeit, mouthwatering, food."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I was visiting my daughter in Cincinnati. Her friend recommended this restaurant. We were very impressed with the restaurant. Great ambiance, contemporary decor. The staff was very polite and provided great service. Everything we ordered tasted great. Would recommend Brussels sprouts!! Chicken Risootto and sweet corn ravioli. Enjoyed our dining experience"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Delicious meal by each of us in our group of 4. Started things off with a Madison, then had the Brussels sprouts w/1 scallop, then steak. Had cheesecake for dessert, which was the best I've ever had. All excellent. Can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "This place delivers in every way! We had a most wonderful meal in a beautiful place served by quite talented people! Ask for Michael as your server...you'll be happy you did!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "In its third location and having undergone many changes, Boca remains the best Cincinnati has to offer. Best food, best service, best ambience. David Falk has maintained the same high standards since Boca opened under his watch in Northside. Always a treat."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "As our first night out in Cincinnati, we went with high expectations. We had a late reservation but still had to wait a little bit for our table to be ready as the restaurant was quite full. We thus had a cocktail in the bar where the knowledgeable bartender was able to make an excellent recommendation. We then were taken upstairs to our table and quickly greeted by our waiter who was most helpful with the menu. We picked 6 items to share and they coursed it out into 4 courses after ensuring that we were in no rush. It was precisely what we wanted for our evening. The dishes were exquisite with great attention to detail. The ambience was modern yet grand. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "From the moment we walked in we knew we were going to have a great evening. We each got cocktails (mine was blackberry purée, gin,cucumber juice,and pepper) that were amazing. Our waitress Brooke was beyond fantastic. Very personable and professional at the same time. She really made the meal. The food exceeded our expectations. The pea, pearl onion, and ricotta cappellacci is a must. We look forward to returning!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "If you are looking for an out of this world dining experience visit BOCA. The ambience and service were exceptional, and the food was outstanding! One major highlight is that you can order half portions of all the major dishes, which allows you to taste multiple items on the menu without having to order a single entree! The wine selection is exquisite as well!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Fine dining includes it all-- exceptional food, wonderful service and fashionable elegance."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Our server, Brooke, was outstanding, and her helping staff was as well. Brooke had wonderful recommendations for how the different foods could be brought out. There were 4 of us and we all were ordering different items, so her suggestions were quite helpful and worked beautifully. The only slightly negative comment I have about Boca is that it is hard to fill up a 22 year old boy!"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "You have to understand my husband likes a lot of food. I had been to Bocas's with girlfriends before a show and almost all of us ordered the smaller portions. It was perfect to go to a show and sit with out feeling uncomfortable. I warned him he needs to order a full portion in certain items. I ordered the full portion filet and he had the pork. We shared to experience all what we both ordered. OMG we were stuffed along with the carmelized brussel sprouts, salad, & bread. We really enjoyed it. We had received a gift card from our son & wife for Christmas. I love the upstairs felt very romantic and dreamy. Restrooms are fun! We didn't know you had a parking lot-only bad part of evening we parked close where the shooting was."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We had a nice table with a banquette looking out into the main dining room. The menu is limited but creative. Some dishes allow for both "tasting" and "full" portions and our server encouraged us to order multiple items and share. Both the grilled romaine and caramelized brussels sprout salads were very good. Entrees were the "tasting" of the salmon and full order of the pork loin. Both were delicious and well prepared, although the pork loin had to be sent back to be rewarmed. Even the "full" portions are small and the "tastings" are just that - tastes. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. It is pricey for what you get but a worthwhile splurge for a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The ambience was a perfect balance of energy and relaxed. Our food selections were spot on with a different yet very flavorful taste. We tried different dishes which we usually would have passed on, but were very pleased with our choices. Look forward to going again!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "My fiancé and I had a simply amazing experience. The staff was great and very helpful in explaining the menu. The food was delicious and the drinks were great! Nothing else to say but, we will be going back!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I had dinner with my wife the other night. It was our wedding anniversary and I was hoping for a very special experience. Boca hit it out of the park! Everything was over the top...great service, wine, dinner and the decor was very cool. Big change from the former place (Maisonette). I will be back!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Had dinner here for my anniversary and it was our first time going to BOCA. The food was absolutely fantastic! Server was very nice and answered any questions we had. Wine/cocktail list was very diverse and there was something for everybody! Amazing experience and I will be going back!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Boca and it did not dissapoint us. The surroundings, service and to top it all off the food was just amazing. I know that this is a place that my wife and I will want to frequent in the future."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Our first visit to Boca after moving to Cincy. We were super excited after friends and coworkers raved about the food. Several people told me to "get the Brussels sprouts." Well after eating them I must say I don't get the Brussels sprouts. They were mushy and grayish-green. Like the ones that come from a can except softer. Not carmelized as billed. My beet salad was same old same old. Beets, nuts, vinaigrette. Yawn. I ordered seared salmon with sweet corn sauce. The sauce was super great but the salmon was so soft I asked the server if it had been poached. My girl's dinner was good - corn ravioli but the portion was tiny. Our server was sweet but not very attentive and brought us the wrong drinks. Anyway live and learn."

  • "Downtown Cincinnati is alive and well. Their food choices are fantastic and BOCA was outstanding. It's a perfect downtown location and within walking distance from many of the downtown hotels. I'll be back."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Highly recommend if visiting Cincinnati. Excellent food. Excellent service. Considerate of those with allergies. Gluten free menu. Elegant and casual at the same time. Dont know how they do it. Great atmosphere."

  • "Our server and the folks who assisted her were outstanding. Very friendly and attentive."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Everything about this place was superb. The food was unique and each item my husband and I ordered was delicious. The server was never rushed, stopped for conversation, and allowed us time to enjoy each course before bringing the next. We would definitely go back for a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We celebrated our wedding anniversary in grand style with Boca's tasting menu. Everything was fantastic and the service was superb."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "BOCA continues to live up to its reputation. Terrific food....even better service. David was a great host (server is an inadequate term)!!!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "First time at Boca. Well worth it. It was our anniversary and EVERY single person that we interacted with congratulated us with a "happy anniversary". Complimentary champagne as well. We were waited on by Sidenie (sp?) - she was excellent. Food - top notch. Tuna Crudo - awesome. Grilled Caesar - fantastic. Braised Brussels Sprouts were also great. I got the amish chicken (i usually go for seafood or steak, but I went for chicken) - totally worth it. best chicken i've had. great risotto. Wife got the filet - wonderfully done. Great drink menu too. WILL be going back."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "A lovely dining experience for a reasonable price. We ate upstairs where its quiet, but the bottom floor is where the main action is and seemed noisy. A small menu, but the quality is great. Servers wear jeans--not at all like the Maisonette! Definitely recommend it. Make sure to reserve early since it's a bit hard to get a table. We will return for sure."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Time and time again, I am amazed at the consistently excellent job the folks at Boca do! There is no equal in Concinnati for food and service."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "They made it right, but when you tell someone its your 15 yr anniversary, you'd think they would seat you at a quiet table- not one of the 2-toppers right on top of someone else, under a fan. My husband was ignored at the bar, (literally, my drink was served, and they still didn't ask him what he wanted) and it wasn't until we complained they gave us the customer service we deserved. For as many restaurants as are downtown, I've been treated better elsewhere. The food was really good, but by then, it didn't really matter."
