    The service was outstanding. The food was not as good as I would have hoped. The leek salad was very disappointing. The potato puffs were amazing. The pasta with sausage was just ok. The hamachi should have been more thinly sliced. The bread was good. The crab carrot salad was decent. Was so looking forward to the dinner and just not impressed.

    Easily one of the best dinning experiences of my life. The waiter was knowledgeable of everything on the menu and was very helpful when trying to decide what to order. It’s a bit pricy since you basically have to order two small plates per person to have a decent sized meal but it is 100% worth it. Definitely one of our new favorite special occasion/special date night places.

    Food was good but not as flavorful as we were anticipating. A bit overpriced to me. I felt like we were paying for they service, atmosphere, and location, more than the food. It was good for a one-time birthday celebration, but I doubt we will be back. We were unaware each entree was the size of a bread plate, so you need to buy 2-3 "petite plats "for a full meal. More like a progressive dinner. Not my scene, but I know many enjoy this type of experience. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. They were very conscious of us and what we needed. Not pretentious but we still felt out of our element due to our ignorance of fine dining.

    Our server was friendly and informational, all the support staff was on point as well, we never had dirty dishes or empty water glasses. The staff really worked well together and made everything effortless. The Amish Chicken entree was the favorite, the portion was too small for two people to both have some to experience its deliciousness. The Scottish Salmon was okay. The Expresso Martini was frothy and creamy. Great experience overall, will be back to try other dishes.

    Went to Boca for a birthday date - the food was definitely overpriced for what it was. The Beef Wellington was amazing, the scallop dish has a single scallop which was okay, but the brussel sprouts on the same plate were phenomenal. The oysters were a great starter. If I ever went back, for the price of the whole bill we could have gotten 50 Oysters, which may have been a better choice.

    We planned a last minute date night while visiting Cincinnati and were lucky enough to get bar seating at Boca. Our server was Gabby, and she was phenomenal. She did a great job going over the menu, and we decided to let her order for us. Her selections of both wine and food were outstanding. It was without a doubt one of the better dining experiences we’ve ever had and we look forward to the next time we can dine at Boca.

The wine pairings (curated by Doug and the manager Will) played so well with the dishes. I’ll be coming back again and again.

    We truly enjoyed our experience this visit - our wait staff was wonderful, and the food was delicious. The re-formatted menu offerings were misleading and disorganized. I have no qualms about paying for excellent cuisine, but in some cases the plate arrived with one or two bites, when I was expecting a bit more for the price listed. I left still hungry despite having shared an appetizer, enjoying my own (tiny) salad, (very small) entree and dessert. The amount of food we were given compared to the amount we paid seemed disproportionate. The quality of the food was superb however - there was just not enough for the price that was charged. We will likely not return until this changes.

    I brought my mom here for her birthday because I’ve heard from people all over Cincy and my hometown (Indianapolis) that it’s one of the best restaurants in town. I was not let down. Everything we had, from the Oysters Rockefeller to the Beef Wellington was phenomenal. Gabriella, our server, along with all of the support staff were incredible and really helped to make my mom’s birthday special. Thanks, all!

    Service and atmosphere was great. Food was not great. Pasta was so over salted my tongue still hurts. King crab had very few tic tac sized pieces of crab I actually thought it was the salad we ordered instead. They were notified we were celebrating a birthday and did nothing to make it special. (Ruby’s gives you a dessert platter for even the smallest of occasions) for this caliber/price of restaurant I was severely disappointed and will certainly not be back.

    BOCA is my favorite restaurant in the Cincinnati area. I compare it to Common Thread in Savannah, GA which is another all time favorite of mine. The atmosphere is very warm and luxurious, our waiter was spot on with his descriptions and suggestions, and the food was beautifully plated, full of flavor and gave us a wonderful dining experience. I also want to add that it was such a nice change to have the wait staff always perfectly timed to take away our plates and silverware and replace with clean ones for the next course. So many times they either are interrupting you before you are finished or they are slow to remove. This staff was very aware of their guest and took exceptional care to make our dinning experience even more enjoyable. I highly recommend BOCA
