    The menu is very limited and serving sizes are ridiculously small for the price. My husband ordered the “Boca Filet” which was supposed to be a 4 oz. steak and 1.5 oz. crab. I should have taken a picture as what came out wasn’t nearly that. The server must have agreed and asked the manager to accommodate us with a complimentary dish of…a piece of chicken. This used to be our place for special occasions but will not be back. Don’t waste your money.

    Boca is absolutely delicious! The portions are between tapas and regular entree size - not quite as small as tapas, but not a full entree. Recommendation is to get 3 dishes, one in each group: salads, pastas, and entrees. Due to the portion sizes being a little on the small side, the value is only fair - a bit pricy. The service was perfect, and the ambiance and beauty of the restaurant is stunning. Noise level is very quiet. I feel like my date and I were really loud, and we were talking at normal volume. All in all, a great experience, and I would dine here again.

    Foie gras at Boca is the best in Cincinnati. I wish they had more wines available by the glass. The bottle selection is excellent but too much for one person. The cellared Pinot Noir was very good.

    Food is excellent, if small portioned for its price. Lovely interior. Waiter absolutely ruined the evening with his dismissive and rude attitude towards us. Will not dine there again, despite the otherwise excellent food and very nice bartender.

    We dined at Boca for the first time and Emily was our server. She was a wealth of knowledge and had a great table side manner. I am an absolute nerd about wine and the list was incredible. It was the type of menu and wine list that made it very difficult to choose because I wanted every single item. We ended up selecting several appetizers, a salad, a couple of pastas and 2 entrees and split everything. The coursing went perfectly and the entire night was perfect. I would highly recommend Boca to anyone! There wasn’t a moment throughout the evening that was less than exceptional.

    What. A. Dinner. My partner and I were celebrating and we couldn’t have had a better time. Our server Emily guided us through the experience with grace, humor, and perfect timing! The wine list is exceptional, as is the food (HALIBUT). We were both charmed and cannot wait until our next visit.

    Well aside from the fact that we puked our brains out 3-4 hours after we ate here and when we told mgmt about it he basically told us that we were the only ones and that the health dept didn’t need to do anything about it. That’s not the point. I called to let them know we got super sick after eating thier scallops and he then offered to give us a GIft certificate and not a refund. Ok, cool. We really wanted to try it again. Then literally no word from him. He called me, no voicemail.. then I called him right back and days have gone by.. nada. Super unprofessional.

    Boca was everything my wife and I hoped it would be for our wedding anniversary dinner. Our order included the beet mezzaluna salad, squash agnolotti, lumache, scallop, and halibut. Every dish was impeccable, as was the service from Jason and the rest of the staff. This truly memorable dining experience was perfectly capped off with the ice cream dessert.

    Hard to understand why the tables for two are the length that they are on the lower level. It is kind of awkward to sit with your significant other that far away. The Filet Boca, Amish Chicken, and Cheesecake were all excellent. Service was very timely at every step of the evening.

    Usually flawless and spectacular, we’ve been going to Boca since they were in Northside. However, last night we had a 7:30 reservation but weren’t seated until 8:00. The people at the table they had reserved for us weren’t leaving. Very frustrating since we were there to celebrate my wife’s 90th birthday! Once seated, everything was as we had expected it would be. First class.
