Boca Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Boca always delivers--this time around we had a blend of tapas including the garlic shrimp (dunk the bread in that sauce), the sweet and sour brussels sprouts, pork belly, and chorizo. While the chorizo was a bit dry, it still had good flavor. Highly recommend for a laid back, leisurely dinner with plenty of delicious food and friendly service!
Our food was excellent and our server was attentive and helpful, Half way through the meal the AC came on and it was cold. We told her and she gave us a menu to cover the vent which was helpful, but the air didn't get turned off. Our dessert was delicious and we look forward to returning one day. The only negative is the noise level as the tables are very close together and this is a popular place which means it was packed!
The food is OUTSTANDING, but pricey. This is not somewhere I would go every day, but we went for my 30th birthday, shared 8 plates between 5 people with 2 bottles of wine (cheapest bottles are around $30) and it came to about $170. Not bad for the unbelievable quality of food, but you won't get a cheap dinner here. I will certainly be back for a date night or another friend reunion. I also LOVE the vegetarian options - it's not often I can get a good quality meal without having to order off menu to omit meat. Highly recommend!!
It was my birthday and it couldn’t be more perfect. My husband lived in Spain and loved the authentic flavors of the taps we had. The pork belly blew us away, as did the bone marrow with toasted brioche. The octopus had good flavor but the pepper seasoning was overwhelming and took away from the seafood flavor. The ham croquettes were good, but we expected more flavor. And the tortilla wasn’t something I’d order again. The Serrano and manchego plates were heaven; the ham was sliced so thin. The wine list was bliss, so much tempranillo! The crema Catalana was nice and light with a refreshing citrus flavor and the churros were crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy inside. Our server was fantastic and the entire staff was friendly. The restaurant was beautiful.
Dinner was ok. Nothing remarkable. I felt a few of the tapas were severely overpriced for what we paid but on the other hand, the charcuterie board we ordered was loaded for much less than I’m used to paying. Service was great. I really wanted to like this place so maybe I will have to give it another chance.
Great food, wine and service. I fantastic choice for a frigid New Year's Eve. It was warm and lively, and the waiter was great - willing to make recommendations and share opinions, and special requests to accommodate dietary restrictions. Boca is high on our list and part of the regular rotation and this last visit only reinforced that.
We enjoyed the atmosphere. The waitress (Beth) was personable and very informative in regards to the menu. Being our first visit we appreciated her explanation of the combination of foods and the ordering process. We gave 4 thumbs up and we left with smiles.
Normally a very reliable spot for lunch or dinner. We have enjoyed several very good meals. This time they missed the mark on several dishes. Appetizers and meals were significantly overseasoned and over salted. The octopus special was tough and not well prepared. We will try again but were disappointed on this occasion.
We had a good experience overall, but I wished they do more for birthdays. We told them that it was a birthday and our server didn’t seem to care, plus she was not good at her job. The bartender was more attentive when we sat at the bar. I even asked our server to take a picture and she said no, that she needed to go and do something else and come back.
It was very crowded on a busy regatta weekend. So glad we made reservations.
We tried 6 tapas, plus dessert and left very full and satisfied.
There weren't as many tapas selections as we had hoped or as we have had in other tapas restaurants, but what we had were quite good...most especially the pork bellies, devilled eggs and stuffed dates. Desserts, white chocolate mousse and chocolate chacouterie were also excellent.
The seating was very tight and the noise excessive, due to the large crowd, but we would definitely try it again on a non-event weekend!
Very nice evening. I'd reserved the wrong night and was in a quiet panic but the hostess managed to slip us into an available table, and a good one. Our friend ordered one terrific tapas dish after another. Lovely wines. A long and jolly and convivial night. Our best meal at Boca yet.
We had a pleasant dinner at Boca Bistro. The service was excellent, and two of the dishes (bacon wrapped dates and ham croquettes) were outstanding. The other two dishes (brussel sprouts and shrimp in garlic) were not up to our standards. The atmosphere was great, and overall we would recommend the restaurant.
The food was simply spectacular as were our servers. Please extend our thanks to them as well as the folks in the kitchen. We were there for a light meal before a concert and had no idea what a treat we were in for. We had the Lamb chops and Garlic Shrimp.
Besides being very knowledgeable about the food and beverages (I enjoyed a local IPA from the Other Half Brewery) our servers shared some great ideas about things to do during our all too brief visit to Saratoga Springs. We will definitely return to Saratoga for another visit and look forward to sampling more of the delights that Boca surely has to offer!
