Contemporary European
Boca is Chef David Falk's ode to Europe. It is a one of a kind dining experience marrying world-class, chef driven cuisine with gracious service. Boca's design couples contemporary European and American stylings with touches of rusticity in an airy urban space. The elegant and inviting surroundings welcome guests for an afternoon cocktail, a small bite before a great show at nearby theaters, a casual dinner with friends, or a luxurious night out in Cincinnati.

The decour is stunning. The service is perfectly attentive yet unobtrusive. The kitchen is incredibly spot on on every single item that comes out of it. This is one of the best meals I’ve had in the last year.

A first visit, but will not be the last. Upper scale restaurant with excellent service, setting, and food. Well designed menu with available “tasting” or “full” portions allowing flexibility in the meal. Each of our party of three had a wonderful experience.

Spent a wonderful early evening at Boca seated at the bar. The food was excellent and it was so interesting seeing it made literally in front of our eyes. Lovely ambience, no rush, not too noisy though very busy. We look forward to returning on our next trip to Cincinnati.

We picked Boca to celebrate our daughter’s graduation from college.

Nicole was our server & did an outstanding job. Dinner was delicious & memorable! (Nicole even remembered what we had ordered the last time we dined there!)

Our favorite foods were: the marinated olives, the blue oven bread, special appetizer fries (I forget what they’re called), and the burgers.

We were a family party of 5 visiting Boca for the first time. We touched the menu in many places. Everything is very well conceptualized and prepared. Particular high notes for our party were the Boca Cured Ora King Salmon, Spring Vegetables, Tonnarelli al Nero di Seppia and Branzino a la Plancha. Perhaps a half tick down on our scoreboard. though still quite good, were the Pommes Soufflees, Boca Oyster, Lumache alla "Escargot" and Beef Tenderloin Boca. You can't really go wrong no matter what your taste. Our reservation was at 5:30, early for many, but a very good time to eat here. Service was impeccably attentive and those in our party who had drinks found them creative and tasty. The only real knock we would have is the expense: restaurants at this cruising altitude are too high priced in our view, not enough to keep us away when we really want something special, but alas enough to discourage us from being frequent flyers.

Boca has really fallen off from a quality perspective. The food was average, the steak was drowned in Bernaise, and the pasta was no better than what I can make at home. The prices are now outrageous. Our server was pithy and condescending. This used to be our favorite restaurant in town, and we will not be going back.

A beautiful meal and great service. No other food like this in Cincinnati! Absolutely top shelf in all aspects. The Branzino was delicate but still had fantastic flavor. The filet was the best steak in town. The wine selection and knowledge from the staff was 2nd to none. Truly outstanding.

Having moved from Chicago to a farm in Ohio I was hoping for a great meal to celebrate my bday. Boca did not disappoint. Everything was pretty much a solid A. Our server, Seth, was a pro with great recommendations. As it was a week night, I think we benefited from a little extra special care that maybe a weekend crowd may have cramped. Try those exquisite potatoes for an app.
It was worth the drive, and to stay overnight for a truly special meal.

Menu was varied for my taste lacked the basics, meat potatoes and veggies.
Food was prepared perfectly and service was second to none.
Obviously a bit pricey, but for a special occasion (sons 50th) worked out OK.

We ate at Boca on a Monday evening at 6pm. Seating was instantaneous and the hostesses recognized that it was an anniversary reservation, nice touch. Kyle was our waiter and as a veteran of Orchids service was great. He took a minute to say Happy Anniversary and give us a tour of the menu. We enjoyed a great four course shared plate meal, a couple of glasses of excellent wine, coffee and dessert. Everything was top notch, even the Bathrooms we're a cut above. Had a wonderful time. Good job Boca!

This was our 3rd visit to BOCA. While outstanding compared to other restaurants, it fell slightly short of our expectations. It makes a HUGE difference when the server gives you a tour of the menu because offerings changes so often. Our server did not do so this time and it would have made a difference based on what we heard at the tables next to us. Also, the server did not ask if we were celebrating anything which they’ve always done in the past. This time we were there for my 40th Birthday. It would’ve been nice to acknowledge it. All in all it was still amazing and the food is second to none. The service overall was still great, just maybe not as exceptional as it has been in the past.
