  • "It was our first visit to the restaurant. They sat us down right away and the service was ver personable BUT the food was outstanding! We shared a Caldo Gallego soup, una tabla de chorizo, jamon serrano, and manchego - delicious. The best dishes were the pimientos al piquillo and the bacalao dish. We couldn't stop eating!!"

  • "It's like a trip to Madrid. The stylish but simple decor is accented by a good selection of Spanish wines on display. The tapas are authentically simple Spanish: no fusion nor nouvelle treatment here. If one is a fan of tapas, this spot is a perfect spot for you. The jamon Ibérico, sopas, and other tapas tidbits are high quality in their preparation. For dessert, leave ESPAÑA behind and order the dessert crème brûlée, which was as wonderful as any one might find in an haute cuisine French restaurant -- delicious!"

  • "Service is excellent and so is the food is great. Excellent chef in this neighborhood gem. The codfish croquettes are a "must have". Loved the garlic shrimp and fried garbanzo tapas too. Wanted to have a pork dish, but we couldn't decide on one from the menu so Leticia the waitress asked the chef to create a pork dish for us What a delight! The chef prepared with beautifully seasoned slices of pork with a port wine sauce that was simply delicious. Many good selections of tapas, entrees and of Spanish wines. Had a wonderful red Ribera del Duero called Matin Berdugo. What a pleasant evening. Going back next week!"

  • "This place comes alive after 7:30. It is definately a neighborhood treasure. Everything was freshly made and came to our table piping hot. The waiter advised us what to order since this was our first visit and he steered us in the right direction. There is no wine list, rather all the wine is displayed on the walls and you pick out the bottle you want. All wines are from Spain so you may want to read up before you visit. Most wines were very fairly priced. Dinner for two, with a bottle of wine was only $90.00. We really enjoyed our meal."

  • "Bocaito was fantastic! We live in the Philadelphia area and eat at Jose Garces restaurants in Philadelphia.....the quality of the food is on the same level at Bociato. It might not have the presentation of Armada but it doesn't' have the prices either. The owner is awesome, the food is terrific and highly recommend this restaurant. We stayed at the Viceroy and took a cab out and could not have been happier. It's a rustic place with great food and the staff is terrific. The prices are reasonable and i would go back again in heartbeat. Thanks for a great meal!"

  • "It was ok. Food was good but service was TERRIBLE!! They refused to provide seperate tabs/checks after waiter agreed too. When situation was addressed to manager/owner he said "I cant deal with this problem, you guys pay whatever you want or not pay I do not care" and walked out. I have never seen that in my life! Hopefully, service improves."

  • "I tried Bocaito on a recommendation from a friend, and the food, service and wine certainly lived up to what my friend had told me. A must try, if available, is the salmorejo (spanish tomato puree with extra virgin olive oil and jamon serrano crumbles). This was outstanding!! Also had a delicious 3 year old reserve manchego cheese, navajas a la plancha, seared pork with roasted piquillo peppers and balsamic reduction, bacalao brandade garnished with quail egg.... all incredibly delicious. The wine list is also priced very well and it has a great selection. I highly recommend this place to anyone who likes authentic Spanish food that is reasonably priced. Will definitely return"

  • "Fantastic! I have been a huge fan of Bocaito since it opened. We make sure to visit every time we are in Miami. This is definitely the gold standard for authentic Spanish tapas in Miami. The food is always scrumptious, perfectly cooked and seasoned."
