We absolutely love Boca!
This is our second time there. We are from out of town but when we visit Cincinnati we always go to Boca. I cannot honestly say that I have ever been to a restaurant that the staff were more professional, attentive and experts at their craft. This is a phenomenally run restaurant with an excellent team. The food is also superb. Would HIGHLY recommend

Their food never disappoints! Love the small bite approach so you get to try many different items. I like the feature that you can split a glass of wine. It makes it so easy to pair a good wine with your food. Christine was a wonderful server. She was very attentive and had great recommendations!

Incredible dining experience from start to finish. Boca delivered on every level. Dining in the pandemic era certainly changes the dynamic and requires patience and appreciation for the restaurant staff. Our experience at Boca was top notch. The food was sublime but the people made the difference. David greeted us at the table with an enthusiastic welcome. Our server Seth was exceptional and guided us though the menu with culinary ease. Seth, the sommelier, was the perfect host who offered delightful wine pairings and engaging conversation. Highly recommend Boca. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent top to bottom!! The whole team at BOCA is a well-oiled machine! Service is friendly, interactive and knows the menu extremely well empowering them to make thoughtful and spot on recommendations!! My husband and I had two salad and three larger plates all gluten free. All of the plates were presented beautifully and each very unique yet the seasonal components tied them all together!! Delicious and always an enjoyable evening! Hope to be back soon!

Great dining experience. Server had a bit of a pretension which cut the star one notch. It didn’t ruin the evening and I was responding fine to it, but my fiancé made the observation after. Our young age look tends to get it

Boca is always one of 3 best restaurant experiences in Cincinnati. Yes, it's going to be a little pricey but you'll spend a similar amount at other fine dining restaurants in Cincinnati that will not be nearly as good. Most of the dishes are small and you should order 2-3 per person. The menu does change seasonally but the staples are always there.

This was our first time dining at Boca. Let me just start by saying that the restaurant itself is beautiful inside. The service is top-notch and the servers are very knowledgeable about the menu. It is a relatively small menu but everything we had was excellent. The portions are very small so order several things if you don't want to leave hungry. Will definitely go back and I highly recommend.

Wonderful dining experience and excellent cuisine. Well-paced with attention to detail. I high price, but almost entirely justified for the experience.

One thing to note — some tables in the downstairs dining area are spaced very, very close together for peak pandemic times. The staff is very accommodating to change seating arrangements for uncomfortable parties, but still feel that this should be addressed or noted as a warning given the high quality associated with the restaurant and experience.

I am not sure we can add anything but this place is absolutely fantastic. It is a once a year place for us but in our opinion there is nothing like it in the city. The ambiance, the selection and quality of the food, the wine list and the service are really outstanding. It is amazing how they are able to offer the breadth and depth of dishes they do and then deliver them perfectly timed and prepared. It is obviously very expensive, but in our opinion, it is certainly worth it.
We highly recommend engaging with the server on the details behind the various dishes and the wines as they are highly educated and motivated to help. There is often an interesting back story to a wine or the food itself in addition to understanding the ingredients and taste.
