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.

Our son and girlfriend were in town and we wanted to go to one of the best places in town, so it had to be Boca. Every aspect of the meal was excellent but special mention to our server, Seth. He was amazing! His descriptions of the menu items and recommendations were spot on and his personality really enhanced the experience. The food was just superb.

Love the atmosphere, food is amazing and service is awesome! I am not crazy about some of the seating, too close to the next party for privacy, but still one of our favorites.

Extraordinary service & food! Our server was very attentive to our table despite having several other tables on a Friday night. The food was divine and well-portioned. We had a booth near the kitchen, and it was really neat to watch the busyness of everyone preparing the food. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We will be back!

Erin (at the Bar) was an amazing server. I took my Dad for his birthday and a colleague recommended visiting her at Boca. It was my first time to Boca and she explained every item on the menu and made great recommendations. She was very attentive and made my dad feel so special. Would come back to visit her again and again!

It’s a great place but priced very high. The food is very good, a bit heavy on the truffle which overpowered other flavors. Service was excellent. Very attentive. I think there are other places that rival at a lesser cost.

It was nice to have a vegetarian menu as most of the upscale restaurants do not have one. Food was amazing and the desserts over the top. The waitor was also knowledgeable about the preparations.

Boca is such a great restaurant for celebrations or intimate dinners. It can be a bit loud at times, but it is because everyone is enjoying themselves! The gluten-free pasta is the best I've ever had, and I dream about the scallops and Brussels sprouts.

We loved everything about the place! It was a great experience and I would recommend it to everyone. Our one complaint was the pasta dish that had sausage and clams. The texture and combination of proteins was unpleasant. We tried 4 other dishes that were all fantastic.

Second visit in a couple years on a driving vacation South. Wonderful! Wouldn’t eat anywhere else in Cincinnati. Oysters Rockefeller, Amish chicken, black truffle pasta. Half portions available on many dishes. Great cocktails and wine list.

The food at Boca was wonderful and different than any I have ever had any where! Our waiter was excellent! He was always available but not bothersome. He explained each selection perfectly. The small plates were large enough for a complete meal and are delicious. It is a beautiful restaurant and a great, elegant night out!

Amazing amazing amazing. My boyfriend and I spent a date night/early Valentine’s Day here and the food, wine, and service were incredible. It was definitely pricey for the small portions, but that was to be expected. And we sat upstairs in a table by the big windows, so it was actually pretty freezing. But such a small “problem” for such a wonderful evening.

Excellent, only 2 things could've been better. It was very noisy at our table , difficult to talk with raising your voice. And the second we got a$170 bottle of wine, it was cold and the cork was 98% dry, with barely color on the end. I would expect a higher quality for $170.

Met an important client who was visiting from out of town. After they treated us to a very fine restaurant in Houston, we had to provide an equally impressive experience. BOCA was the perfect spot! The service, the wine list and the exceptional food. Our client was very impressed with what Cincinnati had to offer. Keep up the good work BOCA!

Amazing flavors and service is always exceptional. I always like to have one of the mainstay dishes and one new dish. I wish I could eat here everyday! Pricing is perfect . Especially for the quality. It’s rare to find another restaurant that compares to the overall menu. Some places have a few great dishes, but every item on Boca’s menu brings excitement to my taste buds. I can’t wait for the next bite. I have to admit I find myself thinking about the food for the rest of the night. It’s so good. Already thinking about my next night at Boca!

I asked for a private corner table and omg they had a circular booth with curtains in its own section that was spectacular! Outstanding service and food! Everything 5 star from top to bottom! Was just a nice Monday night dinner but could be the best dinner for the most special occasion! Oysters Rockefeller and Beef Wellington classic perfection!

I took several of my German colleagues out to dinner here as they wanted the best burger in Cincinnati. This was the only place to go as this is where to find it. We all had an amazing dinner and enjoyed sitting at the communal table near the kitchen to seemingly be part of the action. Brittany was fantastic not only in her menu and whiskey knowledge but was there whenever we needed something. Truly top-notch service and food to match!
