Wow what an amazing night! The food is small plates style and amazing. Easily some of the best service we’ve had in a long time. When they would bring out the dishes they even coordinated how they laid them down! The food was amazing, it’s beautifully decorated, extremely clean and the staff is fantastic. It’s a pricey night out and worth every penny!

Beautiful decor. Excellent service. Food ranged from 5 stars to 3, a little disappointing. Wine list short of nice options under $100. Noise level painfully high.

We love sitting at the Food Bar watching all the action in the kitchen. It is like watching a live television show on The Food Network. The organization of the kitchen is a world class operation!

Boca has been our special occasion place for years. The past two times we’ve gone, it just hasn’t been as special. The food is still great, and the staff is wonderful, but to spend $550 on dinner for 3 people and leave hungry without heavy drinking just doesn’t make sense with other wonderful options in Cincinnati. We’ve had almost everything on the menu multiple times. It’s time to try something different.

Love that Old Fashioned cocktail in a bottle! The carrots/crab/hazlenuts dish was such a great combination of ingredients. Spouse loves the Charred Leeks and the Hamachi Crudo and has both everytime we visit. What a special atmosphere with unparalled service. Just a few reasons why we go several times a year for the past twenty years!

My wife, daughter, and I stopped in here before the Cincinnati Symphony on a Saturday night and enjoyed an excellent meal with our terrific waiter, Brian. We started with the beet salad, Arpège salad, and charred leaks, followed by scallop, bolognese, chicken, and ravioli––all excellent, dainty, buttery, savory, and delicious.

One of the best dining experiences my wife and I have had in a very long time. Our server, David, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu items and help paint a great picture of the items we could choose from. The menu had many great options and the small plates really allowed my wife and I to slow down and savor each of the unique flavors. BOCA has become our go to restaurant for fine dining in Cincinnati.

We decided to eat at Boca before the theatre as it is only a half a block away. Small plate menu allowed for multiple selections to be shared. What a culinary experience from start to finish. There’s no words to explain what these small plates tasted like. By far, the best foie gras tourchon we’ve ever had. This one with an elderberry center was inspired when the chef was making himself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The scallop was also the most tender and perfectly cooked I’d ever had. The Brussels sprouts was a star in the dish too. They are cooked down for 3 hours and literally melt in your mouth. The lamb chop was quite special too. It was a double and cooked to absolute perfection. We ended with the candy bar. There are no words to describe this decadent dessert. We followed it up with a great Broadway show.

The service was outstanding, the food was not. Nice place to eat, but Nada is next door and Ruby's is just down the street. I wouldn't waste my time at Boca when there are so many better options close.

BOCA was well worth the wait. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the location was beautiful. From the moment we walked in the door they made sure we were taken care of. Our waiter knew the whole menu and made sure we enjoyed every bite. It is pricey, but very much worth it.

Fabulous as always. We were surprised to be “upgraded” on arrival to the private dining room for our birthday party. Absolutely impeccable service led by Brian. This is the best restaurant in town by far, particularly for special events.

Made reservation for 9pm, didn’t get seated until 9:15pm. Food was extremely expensive for quality. We weren’t super impressed with the food. The best thing was the bread and the butternut squash ravioli. Bill was $100+ and felt like the experience overall was a 6/10.

The food was excellent and our waiter was amazing. He was so helpful and patient. He helped us choose the best after dinner drinks for our dessert choices. The pommes soufflé was a great starter. I particularly loved the roasted carrot and King crab salad. The scallop dish was also delicious; my only criticism for the entire meal was that the Brussel sprouts in the scallop dish were way too salty. So salty that I wasn’t able to eat them. We loved all of the rest of the food we ordered. The service is top notch. It was a great night and we do highly recommend Boca!!
