    Boca is always a delight. This was our second time dining and we brought my in-laws for my mother in law’s birthday. They were so accommodating to our party and to this occasion. The food was out of this world and an experience to behold. Our service was impeccable without being overbearing. We were seated upstairs this time and the volume was low and we could talk easily. The pacing of the meal was wonderful and we enjoyed every single course. I tried Foie Gras! It was incredible. We don’t come to Cincinnati often but now I am looking for other reasons to justify a trip so we can eat here more often. If you are even remotely considering this restaurant I whole heartedly encourage you to go!

    Staff was great and service is top notch. Food was pretty good. For us the ambience is pretty terrible for fine dining. Felt more like a chic restaurant. Most customers are loud. Would prefer more intimate seating with your own space instead of long shared bench seating. But, if that’s not an issue for you then it’s a great place.

    The food was probably up there in my top 5, at the very least! Fantastic, we’ll plated, and worth every penny! Our table service was great- the guys and gals running around to take care of water, clean plates, were spot in and so kind. Our waiter on the other hand was terrible. We watched as every table around had a very engaging and serviced oriented waiter- while ours came to our table a total of 5 times, two of which was to drop off and pick up the check.

    I liked the newer menu that still has some classics - the pomme souffle is not to be missed. Only critique I might offer is that a broader wine list would be welcomed as the pinot choices were pretty sparse.

    Boca lives up to its reputation, and then some. First time back post-pandemic, it's actually upped its game, emphasizing smaller plates. We had three each, and every one was a marvel of flavor and creativity. We split a fabulous dessert. The service was impeccable. It's a pricey meal, but worth it. Even my wife's ridiculously high standards were exceeded. Great experience.

    We had a phenomenal experience with Seth. He provided excellent recommendations and was not pushy and was very knowledgeable. It was a night we will never forget and the best meal we have ever had in Cincinnati. We moved here from NYC and could never find the same caliber of restaurants until we tried Boca!!! We will be back soon, the food, drinks and atmosphere were all INCREDIBLE! Thank you Seth!!!

    Wonderful service, great food. Prepare to spend $200 per person if you are ordering multiple drinks and dessert. All good was amazing with the exception of the Beef Wellington. I found the sauce to have too strong of a mushroom flavor - almost like soy sauce. It was still very good.

    The upper dining room was very warm. Periodically there was AC that cooled the room but it was not comfortable. I was very disappointed when I placed the valet ticket with my credit card as I was under the assumption that the server would call for our car. That did not happen and therefore our server’s gratuity was decreased by 5%. Perhaps a restaurant of this caliber needs to consider to ensure their guests have top quality service for the entire evening.

    The portions are simply too small..Our party of 4 spent over$500 and we all left hungry..would need to have double the food portions to feel full. Would not spend $1000 on a casual Tuesday evening dinner. Loved the service...

    Haven't been there since pre-Covid so menu was a little different with the small plates but okay with that bc the pommes frites were still there! We enjoyed the pommes, oysters, beet salad, lobster pasta dish, bolognese, and chicken. By far the chicken, pasta lobster, pommes were primo but everything else also delish. Also nice bottle of Tuscan red. We will be back!

    We had a great night and our host was fantastic. We had not be there in a while so the menu change format caught us by surprise. We really like the way the food was served… all plates arriving together and the multiple courses was excellent. We did struggle a bit to understand what the food was going to be when ordering. Perhaps there are full descriptions on the web, but with the exception of one dish… everyone enjoyed their food and the experience as excellent. Desert was the favorite for the group, especially Le Cintron Thank you.

    We sat at the chefs counter and it was such a fun experience to see the kitchen in action and chat with the chefs. The food was out of this world and the desserts were phenomenal. We tried 4/5 of the desserts and loved them all. The Rockefeller oysters were amazing along with the Amish chicken and scallops!! Must try!

    Boca never disappoints! The menu style has changed but our waiter Brian explained everything perfectly. Made great suggestion and was on point with attentiveness and timing. The restaurant is always so beautiful. Short Rib Tartar. Duck Pate. And dessert was fantastic. Presentation of their Old Fashion was so fun. We go once a year. Can’t wait to go back.

    I have not been to BOCA since COVID became prevalent. And as I came back from a trip abroad and was going to entertain guests from that county, I chose BOCA. But unfortunately the experience was a disaster. Worst services that I have ever had. It was very embarrassing as my guests were all from cosmopolitan cities of another county and are used to the very best dining experience and great services. The server was impolite and inattentive.

    Service and food (beet salad, lobster and halibut) were very good. Wine pours underwhelming for prices paid. Similarly, paid entree prices for tasting plate portions. If you don’t mind overpaying for excellent food, this is the place for you!

    The food was overall way too salty. The service was okay. The waitress did not explain the menu when we first arrived after mentioning this was our first time. Did enjoy the attentiveness regarding having our water refilled however at times it was too much. Didn't feel we had privacy for our dinner as it felt like if we took a sip of water someone would come by and refill it instantly.
