The staff was wonderful, in particular Seth who took care of us. His knowledge of the men, his recommendations, for each course, and his sense of humor made for a delicious meal and a delightful evening. The meal was one of subtle flavors and combinations that we had not experienced before. All wonderfully prepared.

This was an A+ meal and experience, well worth the money.

Thank you Boca!

BOCA sets the bar for fine dining in Downtown Cincinnati. My husband and I chose to celebrate our anniversary dinner at BOCA and the restaurant far exceeded our expectations. By far the most memorable and spectacular meal that we have shared together.
Our server, Nicole, was wonderful and we are so thankful for her menu recommendations and attention to detail throughout the evening. We would not change a thing about our wine and dinner selections and are already looking forward to returning again soon. For reference we chose a bottle of the house cabernet, Heron 2018, pommes soufflés with house bearnaise, as well as the BOCA oysters to start off with. We enjoyed the filet with king crab, coquilles l’assiette, and the house specialty brussel sprouts as our entree. We capped off the meal with the “candy bar” for dessert. True perfection! Highly recommend!

We were somewhat disappointed. Obviously since COVID formats change, but the latest iteration is a bit to formal for our tastes. Because everyone knows what Coquilles "L'Assiette" is, we had to use your phone to translate many of the selections, that was a turn off. The food is fantastic, the service was spot on. Just didn't seem to have the same charm it did a few years ago, felt stuffy and pretentious.

Told them my wife and I are vegan and ask that they make about 5 courses for us and was not disappointed. The Romanesco was phenomenal and the Coconut sorbet was probably the best sorbet I have ever had. The price was about what we expected for an upscale restaurant.

Absolutely delicious food and a waiter that was kind, knowledgeable, and cheery. I did order something and got a different dish, didn't say anything because I'm an introvert and it was good so it didn't matter in the end.

Very very very good experience. Excellent service, exquisite food, the perfect place for a special occasion.

We were seated on one of the long communal tables and very close to the kitchen. At first, I thought this was unlucky, but as the evening progressed, we were able to watch the cooks in action and the show was impressive.

Hamachi crudo - excellent, gnocchi - excellent, the amish chicken dish was supremely good, the halibut dish was solid although maybe the least "special" of everything we ordered....and for desert we had the "candy bars" which were a high class version of a milky way maybe? Layers of nougat, brownie, nuts or caramel, I'm not doing it justice in my description but the candy bar was amazing.

Really really enjoyable meal. Not cheap! But worth it.

we visited on valentines day for a pre selected menu. We were seated quickly and our server was right there from the start and gave incredible service the entire time. He made great suggestions and described several meals and drinks that helped us decided what to get. Our food was fabulous and the timing was great to allow for great talks in between courses.

First visit with new menu- lots of new dishes; sadly, i missed the old menu. Weren’t nearly as many choices that appealed to members of my party. I think service with a party of all women is never quite as good as when there are men in the group. Really appreciated Grace’s pre-dining assistance.

Rachel and the entire service team was amazing! The food was delicious, except one of the pasta dishes literally tasted like Chef Boyardee. It was a noodle dish with red sauce and meat. Sorry, but it wasn't very good.... not nearly as delicious as everything else we ordered. The prices are a tiny bit over priced considering the portion. But all in all we loved the ambiance, the service and most of the food.
