Contemporary European
Boca is Chef David Falk's ode to Europe. It is a one of a kind dining experience marrying world-class, chef driven cuisine with gracious service. Boca's design couples contemporary European and American stylings with touches of rusticity in an airy urban space. The elegant and inviting surroundings welcome guests for an afternoon cocktail, a small bite before a great show at nearby theaters, a casual dinner with friends, or a luxurious night out in Cincinnati.

Boca never disappoints! It is my favorite restaurant in Cincinnati and quite possibly my favorite restaurant anywhere. The restaurant is beautiful and the food is exquisite.

Our server Jennifer was phenomenal! The only thing that I did not like, the restroom are upstairs and I only see stairs to get to the restrooms which is not very accessible for elderly or handicapped people. If there is an elevator that I missed please disregard but if not then you need to make it more accessible

I’ve heard good things about this restaurant, so my wife and I decided to try it. The service was extremely helpful and very nice. The food itself was not very impressing. For the cost, I’d definitely rather go somewhere else. We had the the beef Wellington and the beef tenderloin.

Details are important. To say they have every detail mapped out is an understatement. The food is absolutely everything and more. What a perfectly chef driven menu. The staff made everything seem as though it was a dance. Changing utensils between courses was perfect. Just the right amount of attention. What a memorable evening. We’ll be back.

Outstanding food; superb service. The brussels sprouts with scallops is a signature dish. The sole was exceptional. Suggest you get several small plates to enjoy this kitchen fully.

I had their Boca tenderloin (steak) and it was easily among the best steaks I've had. The flavor was rich and complex with an easy-to-eat texture. I'll confess that I was impressed as I was not expecting the food to be quite as good as it was. The server was quick and professional as well and the bread was another high point with an amazingly flavorful crust.

Outstanding dinner as my wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. I have been before, she had not, we had the amazing brussel sprouts, two different tastings of pasta and I had branzino while she had beef tenderloin with lobster. Server and the team were excellent. We tried each other's meals, she took home a slice of the maple cheese cake. Understated ambience was very nice.

My wife and I had a great evening celebrating at Boca. The service was great, starting with the bar tender coming out from behind the bar to take our order and deliver our drinks to our server who gave great recommendations and descriptions of the menu. He was attentive and gracious. The food was amazing. We tried many menu items and was not disappointed with any.

The people sitting next to us were loud, I couldn’t hear my date most of the night. The seating was awkward and uncomfortable. I specifically asked for a more secluded spot and didn’t get that at all. The service was the worst I’ve had and I go to Boca a lot. It was embarrassing because I chose this restaurant for our first date, and my date was not impressed at all. Fail.
