The food was excellent. Service was impeccable. Great atmosphere and great people.When in area will visit again.
Very nice ambiance. We went for lunch and all got salads. They were good but not anything too spectacular. We also got the deviled eggs, which were good. If I went again for lunch I'd try a sandwich, and I'd like to go for dinner tapas.
Went for Mothers Day. Restaurant was not busy but we were there for a 3pm reservation (between brunch and dinner). Was disappointed we couldn't order paella because it was too early. Being a popular Spanish dish, we didn't think paella would be excluded from the menu. In Spain they eat paella in the afternoon and evening. After determining we probably won't be able to find another restaurant with availability for six on Mother's Day, we decided to order burgers and chips, a small meat and cheese platter, two apps, sangria and coffee. For six people it was almost $300. I think we would have been ok with the amount we spent had we not had burgers and chips and had paella, instead.
Great food and great service! We were seated quickly at an outdoor table and had plenty of room. Our drinks were Cosmos and they were excellent! Loved the sandwiches and the fresh bread and olives were a nice touch. Creative menu and plenty of healthy options. Will certainly go back!
I want everyone who reads this to understand that the place treated us ok. It was not a bad place, it is expensive for the kind and type of food they serve but this is a one and done kind a place, just to say you've been there. The place looks very nice and simple. It's a Tapas place, period. The food is not awful but it's not very good.
Either. I'm not a food critic but I do know what Paella should taste like and New York Strip Steaks are my specialty and they both were less than marginal. Now, if your tastebuds are shot or just eat to get a full belly then this place is for you but if you want really tasty and authentic food then this is not the place. Our experience was ok but not what we thought. Again not a horrible place but not our cup of tea. I hope this was helpful.
This was a fabulous resteraunt with great food, awesome drinks and great service.
Excellent server and suggestions for how much food to order
Great food! Really enjoyed my meal! Fisherman Soup.
The food was delicious as always! The stuffed dates, bone marrow and crispy pork belly were fantastic!
Fantastic Tapas and great drinks!
The service was amazing, the octopus was to die for!
If you book w Open Table, make sure you sit at a table, not the bar, or no credit for your reservation. Despite being angry at missing 100 points, i have to say this place is great. Food is outstanding. Do the tapas.
I have been to Boca multiple times but things were off on this visit. Service was pokey and not attentive. Noise level was very high. Food was good but not up to the standards of previous visits. Latest octupus prep was bland and not particularly memorable, eggplant and bulghur was good but the bulghur was under soaked leaving it crunchy and raw tasting. I will return because I know every restaurant has issues on occasion. Bring back the grilled octupus, the small boiled ones just don't taste as good.
Great, interesting food - lots of options for a vegetarian. I love the brussel sprouts and shishito peppers in particular. But, really, it's all great - though the kale salad could use a bit more "massaging" - it's rougher than it should be.
Very slow service, even with the restaurant was half empty!!! No follow-up/service throughout the meal. Waited for 15 minutes for the check. NOT acceptable!
Great food and better service
Amazing food—omg, the stuffed dates and the pork belly tapas! To die for. I’m also addicted to red currants now. Will definitely visit this restaurant again when in Saratoga springs.
All the tapes we tried were good. Really enjoyed the pork belly, Spanish omelette, and white bean soup. Churros (for dessert) were incredibly light and almost melted in my mouth.
we went with a group of 5 family members. Paella was fantastic. Had 5 dish's of appetizers
before. Paella took 30 minutes to prepare but it is worth it. We will go back.
Audra was great
First, since you have opened 5 years ago, I have been coming ever since. Eating outside, is perfect during summer time and inside dinning is superb. The food is so eclectic with that Spanish flare and delicious - the lobster bowl and the scallops with the Portuguese cheese style mashed potato was fantastic. Definitely coming back!!! Ambiance is perfect and the staff is professional and attentive, kept refreshing my water glass which I find it adds a touch of "We got you"...
Fabulous paella! Wonderful service! Great atmosphere! This will become one of our regular places to dine when traveling to Saratoga.
Great food and drinks. Shane did a great job. We will be back.
We have been here many times and had great experiences. The food is always exceptional with wonderful selections.
Best part of Boca Bistro for me is, hands down, the food. One of my favorite restaurants in Saratoga Springs. Second best part, the servers, always both good and enjoyable. If you like a vibrant scene, plus good food and good service, then this is definitely the place for you. It's almost always too noisy and chaotic for me to be perfectly comfortable, but that's just me; it's saying a lot for the place that I keep coming back for the food and always manage somehow not to be distracted or worn down by the cacophony; the rest of the experience makes it worth it. But, if you're the kind of person whose enjoyment depends first on the atmosphere and only secondarily on the food, then I'd say look elsewhere. Mouzon is the only place I know in town with both food and atmosphere truly wonderful.
Great tapas options for a group of picky eaters - gluten free and vegan
Friends met for lunch at Boca on a Tuesday. One of us needs gluten-free options and our waiter was so accommodating. He offered that the kitchen specially prepare a side dish for her - even though there were gluten-free options on the menu. All of us were happy with our food choices (the Goat Cheese salad is highly recommended - especially with shrimp). We were offered free refills of our soft drinks. We were never rushed, and sat and talked happily long after the meal was over.
The decor is rustic and attractive. I guess if I had one suggestion, it would be for more comfortable dining chairs. The seats are hardwood - cushions might be a nice touch! But all in all, I recommend Boca Bistro for its freshly prepared food and friendly service. A pleasure!
Always fun. Staff attentive and helpful, friendly.
Our meal was delicious from start to finish. We shared 5 dishes and a dessert. Everything was tasty with interesting flavors. Our waitress was efficient and friendly. A very pleasant, flavorful evening!
Seafood Paella was terrific! My husband and I celebrated my birthday in the little nook by the window, where you can read the labels on wooden wine boxes. Boca Bistro is one of our favorite Saratoga Springs restaurants.
Loved the unique selection of Tapas!!! Excellent food and service!
The seafood paella is so worth it! Savory and robust with mussels, clams, calamari and shrimp. Don't like the small whole squid? Let your server know when you place the order and the chef will substitute with more sliced calamari. Isn't that nice they did that for us? Very accommodating. And the Termes red from Spain was a perfect match!
Been there many times...food and service always great
Lovely evening out on Valentine's Day! The roses they gave out to the ladies all night were a really sweet touch. Thanks Boca!
Food, service, atmosphere were all good. Will definitely go back.
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!
The food was so fresh & expertly plated. Octopus tender pork belly crispy delicious and the soup was a recommendation we are glad we chose. Service was exceptional! We’ll be back !
Birthday party table of 9. Excellent service as always!!! Love the food
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!
Great date night restaurant. Order several different dishes and share for the best experience. Can be a bit noisy, but the food is worth it.
