We honestly felt like a celebrity... The hostess and everyone there were very friendly, more than one server checked on us to make sure we were good or needed anything else... The chicken and carne asada tacos were super bomb. And we cant wait to go back again. Thank you so much for making our experience great.

The waiter did not want to process our check with a debit card. He kept cancelling the transaction and claiming our card wasn't going through just so we could pay in cash. Never offered to try another card.

It's convenient if you're going to Conga Room after because you're like already in Conga Room but the service was really slow and I don't know why when there was hardly anyone there. The server took forever for everything and one of our orders never even came out. So then we got less time to spend at Conga Room because the service at Boca was so slow. Other than the service the food and drinks were good and it's a nice looking restaurant.

Had a wonderful time at Boca. Food was ecstatic and service was awesome. There were 5 of us and each of us tried different plates in the menu. Flavorful and awesome servings. Food was phenomenal. In addition, we were even hosted to go to the Club for a night of celebration for my friend's bday. Kudos to Boca, you out did yourself. Will continue to rave about your place to all my cohorts.

The food was below expectations. Not fresh at all, it seemed as if it was in the microwave waiting to be warmed up. I tried the ahi appetizer, it was disgusting, the fish was very, very smelly , extreme taste of inion. I will never go back nor I will ever recommend this place.

This restaurant needs to work on there communication. I booked ahead of time for a birthday party and was given to different answers over the phone and in person. The manager and server were extremely rude and not helpful what so ever. Never again will I go here especially when celebrating a birthday.

Food was just okay. Nothing special. Great way to avoid the lines on a weekend is to grab food before entering the nightclub. Otherwise not a place for a picky eater.

I sat at the modest bar looking at the plate of food brought out to me. All I could do was look. I had no silverware with which to eat it. The bar maid was busy making drinks, I looked around to make eye contact with someone. The waiter brought my food but no silverware. After a few more minutes, I got up and went over to the first person I could find who was a disinterested bouncer. He ignored me. Then I went to the waiter, who had brought my food. The short, heavily bearded pudgy waiter with angry eyebrows shot me a look and told me to sit down. I told him I had been waiting for a while and he seemed to get even angrier. I was no longer hungry and ready to leave.

Here is the sad thing: the food was good. The service was horrible. The short, bearded pudgy waiter would benefit from indoctrination into the service industry. I travel to the hotels at LA Live on business quite often. I am scratching Boca off my list. This is more of a night club than a restaurant. Plenty of other options for travelers.

The restaurant is a good fit if your planning to go to the club too. The dinner plates are small and expensive. The mojitos are delicious. My friends and I had fun.

Incredibly hard to find restaurant at LA Live, which has many dining options. we arrived at 8 pm on a friday night to an empty restaurant. Bad omen of things to come.

plaintains way overcooked. dry and inedible. chicken dry. Tacos plate ok. Only good item was the ceviche, the one non-cooked item, and the mojito. not bad. Service was fine, but the waiter clearly had no authority to address my complaints. during our entire stay, only one other table was sat. On a Friday night. This place clearly places its emphasis on its nightclub, not its restaurant. Will not return. Very disappointed.

The venue was beautiful and turns into a night club late at night. The food was so-so but the service was awesome! The waiter (I think his name was John) was an added bonus with his friendliness and outgoing personality! The nightclub scene was off the hook w/ three dance floors and the eye candy floating around :)

I informed open table that it was my anniversary so the resturant would know how important was, the conga room didn't care for the note on the reservation, loss of control there. These details on opentable note are important.
The food and service is Awesome here and the free entry to the dance floor is a nice touch.

I had made a reservation and got a confirmation number. We were the last reservation fo the evening. Majority of the dinner selection we wanted to order was not available the waiter said they ran out for the evening. Service was horrible ! When we got there doorman said that they were at capacity even though we had a reservation. I was celebrating my bachelorette party and my evening was ruined. The club host gave us drink tickets while we waited so when we try to redeem at bar in club the lady bartender was rude and told us we needed 8 drink tickets we had only been given 5 ,she charged us $30 dollars anyway.

Waiter:very good personality, but had too
many tables to serve. Was gone for very long periods of time. The food:there was nothing for vegetarians, not even a green salad. Should have at least one cuban style vegetarian dish without cheese.had to order a small cheese pizza for $12. Tell the hostess to cover herb post when she has to leave for an extended timen and to also check the reservation off. The decor: disappointing. Nothing special. For the price of the food this experience should have been sooo much better.

I have eaten here before and really enjoyed the entire experience; however, based on the poor service this time, I have no intentions of returning. We were the first seating,so they were not yet too busy. We ordered drinks, then food, food arrived, the server never came back to ask if we would like another drink or if the food was good. We had planned on ordering dessert, but opted to get our bill and go elsewhere. The kicker is the 15% "service fee" added to every bill. This server certainly didn't deserve 15%, but he got it. Overall very disappointing experience.

They have a nice bar in the conga room and big dance floor.

From our greeting at the door, a wonderful experiance. The staff, and especially manager Stephanie, made my anniversary dinner memorable. Whatever issues I had personally, the staff, food, atmosphere; changed my troubles in to fun. The view from our table was the dance floor. And soon our angry stares were stomped out by the live band and salsa dancing. The Tapas were fantastic, the Mojitos were great. The Paella is worth the wait, everything on the menu is worth having again. We will be back twice a month, for the food,dancing and staff. My 15th anniversary was a hit. Thanks to Stephanie, my waiter Billy & Vica at the Congo room. This place is the definition of a. Point of interest.
