Diner Reviews
  • "We hadn't been out in a while after a few bad experiences! Two thumbs up on this place. Food was phenomenal, waiter was helpful and knowledgeable. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "The staff meal is never a miss! The fresh catch its also a great bet. Great bar too. The decor is really cozy, but the place is really loud and the tables are really close together so I can't recommend it for a romantic dinner. I do recommend it for a night out or lunch with friends."

  • "I have eaten at BOCA many times and the culinary staff delivers exceptional quality every time! The locally sourced food menu is well planned with rich flavors that make you crave more. (Love the Bacon!!) The staff is always prompt, pleasant and personable. I recommend this local neighborhood gem to any foodie who wants to experience great food at a reasonable price!"

  • "Love the fresh salads, especially the Bibb lettuce, from the "off the wall" section..can't get any fresher than this! It's live and then it's on your plate...no question it's fresh and you can definitely tell the difference!"

  • "This was my 2nd brunch at Boca and it was as delightful as my 1st experience. I dined with a group of friends - there were 5 of us total - and we started with the cronuts (they weren't on the menu, but we asked about them and they were incredible!). They come 4 to an order but you can add 1 more if needed, with chocolate sauce and caramel on the side. I also ordered a Bloody Mary. For $9, it was just okay ... they make their own mix, but it was a bit bland. Next up for me was the breakfast panini, filled with bacon, sausage, eggs and cheese. The sausage was a little spicy, but I'm sort of a wimp when it comes to hot flavors. The ambiance was perfect - just trendy enough, without being obnoxious. Great service, too!"

  • "Boca has never failed to impress me. We had a group of 4 go in for brunch today and it was fantastic. We started with the cronuts and assorted breads and jams. I had the smoked corned beef, my wife had the steak Benedict, and our friends had quiche and the hangover sandwich. My corned beef was fantastic, great smoke flavor and not over salted like most places, it was perfectly seasoned and had great flavor. My wife's Benedict was equally excellent, the steak was perfectly cooked and the hollandaise was one of the best we've ever had. Boca is slowly becoming one of our favorite places to dine in the tampa bay area. Farm to table, fresh ingredients, a creative and consistently good menu, craft cocktails, and a fun wine list. Cheers!!!"

  • "Found this place by looking at the 'hot' reviews while visiting St Pete/Tampa area and made a reservation for brunch. Definitely was not disappointed! The decor/style and atmosphere was fantastic, the selection and the food were great as well as the top notch service. Parking was tight, but they had complimentary valet. The house cocktails also were excellent. Highly recommended!"

  • "Best piece of grouper I've had in a restaurant. Very helpful with my wife selecting a wine. Would have liked another steak option on the menu. Filet?"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Sunday brunch usually isn't very innovative, but Boca offered some interesting choices. The place is lively and the food is good. All in all, worth the drive. Valet parking is a plus. Wait staff is charming."

  • "Great flat bread selection, delicious! Salads made from lettuce grown on a hydroponic wall in the front of the restaurant....can't get fresher then that! Nice selection of entrees and the sides, like the root mash, I had was delicious and unique! Good prices, good food, I would recommend!"

  • "I love this place. The food is wonderful and interesting - something for everyone. Staff members are great, friendly, attentive and know the menu. I have been there three times with different groups and everyone had a great time."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "The wait staff was rude and inattentive. Got one , out of five, dinners completely wrong. Never came back to check on our food while eating....didn't seem to like that we weren't having appetizers, yet for five, we did order two bottles of wine. Was there a little over two hours and she acted like we were taking up her time and space and wanted a new group at our table, pdq. However, our meals were great! The valet parking is five dollars and he certainly seemed to be looking for a tip, yet that is your only parking choice at Boca."

  • "I had previous gone to Boca for Lunch & Dinner, this was my 1st brunchtime experiance. I was there with a group of moms-to-be so sadly mimosa weren't on the meny for us, but I saw many bottles of champange chilling at tables. The egg selections were excellent and there is an option add odd to swap your chicken eggs for duck eggs, which I did for the richer flavor. I got a very standard bacon & egg plate. The potatoes and toast were good but the bacon was nice, thick and just the right amount of fatty, not your typical breakfast bacon. One of the ladies very much enjoyed her cronuts and there was also a lovely looking quiche and one of the ladies was able to get a salad because she was in more of a lunch mood. I would return for brunch!"

  • "I have eaten at Boca several times, lunch and dinner, and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent. They post where the locally sourced sourced items come from, including the boats that bring in fresh fish."
    Dined on 10/9/2013
  • "Dinner was very good,the fried green tomatoes were wonderful, the salads also were great, the fish dishes were fine but the pork chops were a bit overdone however, the wine, the service and everything else was excellent. We came early since we had theater and told our server that we had a time issue so we got in and out without a problem. We will be back!!!!!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "They were out of quiche so I ordered a breakfast panini. It was hard on the outside and runny inside. The iced tea was good. It would be nice to have a choice of the lunch menu instead of brunch."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "The food is excellent, the service is good and the atmosphere is cool. My only minor gripe is with the valet. It's a nice idea, but is unnecessary."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Went with one other couple. Each of us ordered a different sandwich. We each cut our sandwiches into quarters. Each sandwich was wonderful. Foodies are usually full of remorse for what dish they did NOT select. It was like having our cake and eating it too. We will certainly return, and view your establishment as a gem in Tampa for foodies."

  • "First glance: It's a cute, rustic spot; a neighborhood gem. Pleasant hostess sat us right away, server came rather quick with water but it took an unusually long time for our order to be taken. There were maybe 5 patrons in the whole restaurant at that point. We just sat...and waited...saw him in the distance chatting. Drinks: Deco was tasty, pina colada a la martini. Food: Fried green tomatoes are yummy! The burger was ok, nothing special. The burger itself lacked flavor. The flat iron steak was good. Though ordered medium well, came very well...took away from flavor. The brussel sprout hash was surprisingly good, I'm not even a fan of brussel sprouts. Had a little kick to it too."

  • "Food fresh and delicious; Nelli Martini very refreshing with frest cucumber. Certainly will go back and recommend to friends traveling to Tampa."

  • "Food is good. A little pricey for the portion size. As small as it is you would think the service would be better. My parties drinks were empty through out the night. I would have bought more drinks but my server never came around. I even had to ask the server " where you been". We ended up leaving earlier then we originally planned and went to a different place to get drinks."

  • "I cannot say enough positive things about our experience at Boca. I made the reservation about 2 weeks in advance, someone from the restaurant (most likely a hostess) called a day or two later to confirm. I was then contacted again about buying a special Valentine's package with a personalized card, bouquet of roses in a small pot, and a half bottle of champagne ($40 extra) and I went for it. Valet parking was cheap and very efficient. We were sat in seconds upon arrival. The ambiance was a rustic and welcoming one. They were extremely accomidating for our gluten-free needs. Their craft cocktails change often and are all wonderful. Our server was attentitive, but did not hover (perfect service in my opinion). The food was phenomonal! Love!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Not a good experience. We were given a table next to the kitchen. Every server and customer bumped us. Asked to be moved to an open table, but we were told no. Food was ok, but nothing special. Won't return. Y"

  • "We visiting Boca on a rainy, Wednesday night about 8 PM and it was packed. Fortunately had reservations; well, sort of fortunately. We were shown to our table on time, and waited, and waited, and waited for a server to even acknowledge our presence. Didn't happen, so after more than 5 and less than 10 minutes, we moved back to the bar. The bar was tended by 2 friendly and competent people, who made us feel at home and provided great service. Our entrees were excellent and featured locally-sourced food served with a sense of adventure. Boca is a great dining destination, but don't put up with crummy table service."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "I've been to Boca a few times over the past year and it is always a solid meal and experience. So I keep going back for more good eats. The only bad thing that I would say is, their craft cocktails were heavy on the ice and light on the spirits, not what I was expecting. So very un-Tampa like without question."

  • "Had a Saturday Lightning and wanted a nice dinner beforehand. Made a reservation and arrived a little early. Seated immediately, but then there was some confusion about who was supposed to be our server. We deferred trying one of the specialty cocktails...BIG MISTAKE!! Anyway, the "House" (name of wine company) meritage was excellent. The appetizer portion of mussels was perfect for my dinner. Debated about the oysters and fried green tomatoes.. would like to go back to try. My husband, the shrimp & grits affectionato almost licked the bowl! Spicy, but not hot, hot. Creamy grits, not crisp. He had to try the Maker's Mark maple/orange cocktail for dessert. He was very satisfied."

  • "Seven of us went for a birthday lunch on saturday and the experience was memorable. (From the design and layout of the restaurant to the food). We were there in the rain and it was beautiful. We couldn't decided on what to eat, so we all tried to share. The hamburger was one of the best we've ever had, very juicy. I had the grouper... tasty, but I would have to say the vegys were Sooooo good, I could have just had a vegetable entree. OMG!! One of the specials of that day was the Salmon Eggs Benedict, that was pretty out of this world. The seafood pasta didn't quite make it back over to my side, but everyone loved it, (that's why it didn't make it back over to my side. We love this place."
