Outstanding! It was a perfect place for an anniversary. Nice service
Our waiter made this a fun evening at the kitchen table. Thanks and we will be back. m
We always love a special night out at BOCA. The restaurant has a great vibe and is decorated classy chic. Bar has a good selection and accommodating.
Service is always spot on and the food is to die for every time.
Wonderful experience for a special night out.
I've been to Boca many times. It's always been a special experience which I've grown to expect especially when I spend $200+ per person. My last visit, however, wasn't up to expectations. We were seated in the bar seating (which is fine) except that we were positioned in a corner where neither our server or anyone else could even access us. The had to stand behind us to take the order and hand us food or pour water (around a lamp at that). The bar by nature is very noisy but it got a bit absurd with people hovering over us waiting for tables. Are they going to hand out beepers next?
I have experience and training as a wine educator and a somm. Not once did I receive a visit from a wine steward or manager. I ordered a nice bottle of Pommard which was professionally presented. Never received a visit from a manager, etc. throughout the night although the managers did hover over their favorites.
The food was superb as expected. Foie gras tourchon, Roasted acorn squash, Lumache, Romanesco, and Salmon were all perfectly prepared. However, the duration between courses was long and it took 30 minutes longer to get our final entree. I've dined at Restaurant L, Sotto, Boca many times, French Laundry, Alain Ducasse restaurants, etc. and appreciate what they are trying to do but the atmosphere was not conducive to an elegant experience.
Our first time. Absolutely wonderful celebrating our anniversary there. We will return.
Our first visit to BOCA. It will not be the last. Two of our sons prepped us on "must taste" menu selections and our server, David, was extraordinary - knowledgeable, personable, and proficiently attentive. We were celebrating my wife's birthday, and the experience was perfect. Our hats off to the kitchen staff and David. We cannot wait to return!
Wonderful food, wonderful time with friends. Your oysters were incredible!
Celebrating my daughter's 24th birthday and we were treated like VIP's! The food and the service were fabulous. Thank you for an amazing night - no better place to celebrate a special occasion!
Dinner is always excellent! Service is superb, especially with our favorite waiter Seth!
love it everytime....my favorite restaurant! seth our server was excellent!
David P. is the best server ever. He is very cordial and well versed in the dishes. Brussel Sprouts and Halibut were stellar...cant beat those Pommes Souffles
My wife and I had a great overall dining experience celebrating our Anniversary. Chef-Owner David and General Manager Meredith greeted us and were attentive to ensuring our first visit at Boca was enjoyable. We look forward to next time.

Great food, service and ambience. Separate vegetarian menu is a huge attraction for me. Unlike other restaurants, everything in the vegetarian menu was excellent and didn’t feel like an afterthought.
Delicious food but their signature brussel sprouts were tepid, limp and not what they’ve been in the past
Our meal at BOCA was a real treat. For starters, we had the brussel sprouts and scallop, and the haricourt vert. Both were exceptional. The sprouts were unusually tender and cooked to a dark brown. The combination of their flavor with the subtle smoke of the scallop was truly unusual and special. The Haricourts were lovely as well, coming on a bed of greens and with a poached egg on top. For the primo course we split the egg ravioli (a sinlge large ravioli with an egg cooked within. Smooth, mild pasta flavor and a really nice butter sauce. For our main we split the halibut. It was a thick piece which was nonetheless cooked literally evenly throughout, very firm and fresh. Our dessert was the maple mascarpone cheesecake ...get this one! An unusual, relatively light sweet taste.
I noted the sound level as quiet, but this was primarily due to our being seated in the side dining room, somewhat separated from the main area of the restaurant which includes the bar. Also, we ate early (5:30) and the noise level was climbing by the time we left around 6:30.
The general ambiance was very pleasant, not detracting in any way. The main focus to this place has to be the high quality of the food. Oh, and also they make a cocktail called the Corinthian (gin, black currant, ginger) which was really nice, definitely even better than what I expected from the description (it usually works the other way around for me).
Finally, the service was spot on for our tastes; pleasant, down to earth people, very knowledgeable about the food, accessible but not hovering. Bottom line, this is a REALLY good pick for date night, or if you just want to treat yourself to a true gourmet level of food preparation.
Simple elegance, wonderful food, and great service. The perfect finish for a day at the Cincinnati Zoo. I would highly recommend this experience to friends and family.
Some of the best food and service I've ever had. The only bad thing was that it was very loud, so it was hard to hear the person across from me. This isn't really the restaurants fault, more so loud diners.
Great food, great service.
Fabulous food and service!
The food, as expected, was outstanding. But the personable and professional service sets Boca apart from the other fine dining choices in Cincinnati. Our waiter, David, was the epitome of friendliness, helpfulness, and efficiency. Well done! Thanks for making our anniversary dinner simply perfect.
Celebrating our wedding anniversary. Dinner was amazingly delicious, our server was lovely and took care of everything we needed without being intrusive.
Great place to go if your looking for exceptional food and great atmosphere! Waiters are really well trained and will help with any question about food or other.
Excellent food. Good service. Ambience left much to be desired. Very high noise level and loud music. Décor was too eclectic and unappealing.
Great service and great food!
Food and service was outstanding!
Excellent food and service. Lovely atmosphere. We really enjoyed celebrating my husband's 65th birthday here.
Amazing service and a fantastic wine selection. Food was excellent. Great for special occasions.
Amazing food! Absolutely superb. The service is also exemplary. BOCA is a favorite!
I do wish that they had more of a cocktail and beer menu. My husband and I aren’t really wine people and went to Boca for our 15th anniversary. We were delighted with our service and our food. I would go here every year, and for other special occasions, had I had an option for a margarita, etc.
It was truly an amazing experience and the food also matched the service!! Everything we ordered was special and something to savor over even after we finished the meal!
The food is great small portions are great for sharing multiple things
Food is great but Nicole is an amazing representative for the experience. One of the main reasons we truly appreciate the BOCA experience!
Spent a weekend in Cincinnati and dined at several top tier restaurants. While Boca is indeed good - overall the service and quality of food did not live up to the price point. A bit disappointed and there are better options in town with equal food and better service and you will likely spend 10-20%less.
Food was delicious and the server was attentive
Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and provided us suggestions on what we may like based on our discussions with her.
