    It was absolutely amazing! My girlfriend and I went for our anniversary, and the staff helped make it very special. They had champagne waiting on the table for us when we arrived and everyone was very welcoming. David took care of us and he was great! 10/10 would go back again.

    BOCA is always an exceptional tasty experience! It's hard not to order the same delicious dish over and over - but when you try something new it then becomes your favorite. Rachel's service was excellent and helped make the visit very special!

    My expectations may have been too high. Boca is beautiful and our server Rachael was knowledgeable and friendly. I had heard it is one of the top restaurants in Cincinnati. The menu features small portions who we liked. It allowed us to try several different items. My husband and I were not very hungry which was unfortunate. We shared the excellent beet salad and a pasta filled with corn which was also delicious. Our friend had four gras and a leek starter. The leek was the favorite of the night by all. Unique and flavorful. The four gras was prepared cold and that is not the preparation our friend prefers. He did enjoy his lamb chops very much. On the other hand the chicken was too salty. Our desserts came with a candle waxed to the side of the dish because we were celebrating a birthday and an anniversary. The start we were given glasses of complimentary champagne as a part of our celebration. Boca did a n excellent job making us feel special and recognizing our celebration. We would recommend it to our friends.

    Changes have been made at Boca. Before this, Boca was my favorite dining especially when out of town guest visit. Now with changes to menu and quality and taste of food, very different and very disappointing. Drinks and appetizers were great. Had to send back 3 different entrees because not eatable. Salads were disappointing too Desserts were just ok. For the price this is definitely not worth it and now I am forced to find a new favorite restaurant.

    Our dining experience at BOCA was outstanding! Staff was attentive, friendly and know their menu options very well! We were treated to a wonderful dessert when they heard we were visiting Cincinnati, the first time for me and a return visit for my husband who lived there for only one year when he was 8 years old! Cincinnati is a small city with a big heart! We will be back!

    Interesting dishes - all single bite in size, which leads to needing several to have a usual amount of food. Ambiance, service lovely. We had a good red wine too :) Very expensive overall.

    While the food was very tasty they were very small portions and we left hungry. I spent $500.00 on a dinner for 5 and honestly probably wouldn’t go back. I would choose to go back to Sotto. The service was great and it’s a beautiful restaurant but not worth the cost.

    Enjoyed several of the small plates on this latest visit to Boca. Most were outstanding--particularly the tuna sashimi with ponzu sauce, and their out-of-this world scallop with carmelized Brussels sprouts and truffle! The one disappointment of the evening was the short rib tartare, a new menu item. It lacked spicing and seemed very pedestrian to me.

    I had a great meal here yesterday, with my wife, prior to going to see Hamilton at the Aranoff Center. The food is 1st class. We had Pommes Souffles "1949" and Oysters to start, then followed with the Scallops, Amish Chicken with a shared side of Charred Leeks. All the dishes were amazing. The serving staff were fantastic. They ensured that all our food was served in plenty of time for us to eat and get to the theatre for the show.

    One shouldn't visit BOCA often, as it's not only expensive, but would ruin the novelty of it. That being said, it should be cherished and treated as the perfect opportunity to entice one's senses with tastes that are unfamiliar - to pride one's self for being classy & upscale for an evening. Thank you for making our anniversary special.
