BoMa is always greatWe'd probably go every week if there just weren't so many good options in the South End. It's a welcome addition to the neighborhood.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, slow serviceThe food was really quite delicious. My hanger steak a bit overdone but delicious. The short rib tacos were delicious. Loved the beet salad but I would rather the golden beets weren't diced but chunkier. Their famous bread pudding was good, but not the best I've had (a little too firm and eggy). The service, while very friendly and helpful, was a bit on the slow side. Appetizers were a long time coming (probably more a kitchen issue), but later our waiter was MIA and another waiter took our dessert order. And we had to ask yet another to bring the check. Overall it was an enjoyable evening. Note, the acoustics aren't that great which made conversation a little rough. And one pet peeve: don't clear the plates until everyone is done5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceI'm not too familiar with the South end so i just picked this restaurant almost at random. When i arived there was no valet parking so i called, the manager met me out front and found me a spot - what service! Manager and entire wait staff were very friendly and provided great service - food was really good5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGood local restautantBoMa was a great place for a good entree or a good burger. Go there on a Spring Day and the place is open to the street. If you want a good meal at pub like prices, you cannot miss at this place.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful and UniqueWe live in the South End and have the benefit of many good restaurants. However, BoMa hits a higher note with unusual and delicious fare served by attentive staff. The environment is stylish yet low-key. We started off with their short-rib tacos which provided a punch of yummy flavor, followed by their decadent duck-fat french fries, raw tuna tartare, and meat/mushroom burger -- All wonderful. Their duck breast is good, but the sides it comes with are even better. There was a mx-up at one point and the head chef came out and brought us a complimentary cheese plate to make up for it. We highly recommend BoMa and can't wait to go there again.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousI'd never been here but tried it out after a friend suggested it. DELICIOUS! We started with the beet salad (one of the best beet salads I've ever had) and moules frites (so good). Then we had a burger and the duck confit pizza for our entrees, which were both excellent. We ordered pretty heavy, so couldn't finish everything, but all of it was great.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place, good dinner.Food was very good. My husband had the beet salad and duck pizza. Best beet greens ever he says. Duck fat fries ordered for the table went quickly, and even my salmon, which can often be a throw away dish, was really good.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe beet salad was excellent,The beet salad was excellent, as were the scallops. The service was great as well. I really enjoyed dinner at BOMA. The tasty drinks were an added bonus.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTaken Care OfBoma was so great! We had made a reservation for 2 at 8:45 through open table and by the time we got there just a few minutes before our reservation there wasn't a table available. But the staff was incredible to us about it! It's hard to flip tables I absolutely understand that when you have people close out a tab and just sit. We ended up waiting until about 9:05 for a table to open up and we ended up with a free desert on the house! We ABSOLUTELY will be going back, for the service alone!
Food was also great! The Boma Burger and pork Belly Tacos are to die for, and if you don't get the Fries, you've made a huge mistake!
An absolute must!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time visit to Boma.First time visit to Boma. It was more casual than I expected with the bar dominating the room and all high top tables. Menu was a little limited, but food was very good. Short rib tacos were very rich and satisfying. Also had the duck which was very moist and tender. It became very crowded on Saturday evening by 9pm with a bar crowd. Probably a good addition to the neighborhood that needs a large bar with a lot of energy. I would go back again to try the burgers and fish & chips.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAll of were very happy withAll of were very happy with our entrees. I especially enjoyed the tuna entree which I think is one of the best I have had.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceWe loved the restaurant. 4 different meals were all spectacular.

The food was excellent in quality, but the portion size was so small that we left a bit hungry. The wait staff was friendly and attentive -- but perhaps a little too attentive. We had an early reservation on a Saturday night, and felt rushed through our meal as it was clear they needed the table for a later reservation. The food was great and everyone was nice, but the food showed up so quickly and was cleared so quickly that we felt we couldn't linger. All in all, we'll probably come back because the food and ambiance were great. But maybe we would choose to sit at the bar where we can linger for a bit.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWait staff was friendly &Wait staff was friendly & accommodating.
Menu offered something to meet the needs of everyone in our party - big meal or small.
Sean was welcoming & made us feel at home.
Will definitely go back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMour waiter was extremely personableour waiter was extremely personable and attentive, was also training another waiter so we were impressed at how "on the ball" they both were. The food was very good although the serving for the tuna tartare is VERY small, especially for the price point.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
