Outstanding dinner as my wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. I have been before, she had not, we had the amazing brussel sprouts, two different tastings of pasta and I had branzino while she had beef tenderloin with lobster. Server and the team were excellent. We tried each other's meals, she took home a slice of the maple cheese cake. Understated ambience was very nice.

The food and service were really good. But We were seated at a corner table by the kitchen that had a major - and I don’t mean irritating I mean major- draft from the ventilation system from the kitchen that really affected the meal. They probably need to not use that table.

I made reservations for my fiancé’s birthday. Neither of us had ever been to Boca before, & we were both blown away. The service was great, the food was phenomenal. The only thing that disappointed me was that although I let them know when making the reservation that it was a special occasion, they didn’t do anything special as most places do for such things. Other than that, very pleased with everything.

I have gone to Boca a few times now and time and time again it never fails. From the food to the service everything is spot on. You feel welcomed the moment you step through the big red door and you will feel welcomed until the moment you leave. My favorite restaurant by far and that is not likely to change!

I booked our reservation through Open Table. I requested a table out of high traffic since we had a toddler. Not only did they give us a banquette in a corner but they went out of their way to accommodate us with our little one! At the end The pastry chef made a dessert plate for her with a cookie crumbs base and small scoops of 6 different gelatos. Elise and the rest of us loved it!
What we liked about the menu is that some of their options were smaller portions or actual tastings size so we were able to try more items! Everything we tried, the acorn squash, fusilli, risotto, tenderloin were all perfectly prepared and presented and absolutely scrumptious! Eric, our waiter and his assistant were first rate and very personable! Even the manager cane over to check on us

We really loved our meal here!!! Definitely, would love to come back.

Another great birthday celebration dinner at Boca. The main reason we chose to dine here is because they had Beef Wellington on the menu, something I love but is hard to find. We weren't disappointed. It was prepared perfectly and served with a great sauce. We also enjoyed the scallop appetizer and the pomme soufflé. Everything was delicious and our server, Kelly made our evening perfect with her great personality and attentive service.

I go here a lot . I love when the chef sends out a small sample or recommendation. One dish I wish you would bring back is the pineapple seabass crudo! You had this dis when you were in Oakley ! I know sea bass is seasonal and expensive but I love Boca and you make water taste like wine. I will be there on the 10th and my date has never to Boca! But I hope after one time it’s the only place she wants to go out to for a nice/real night out!

The atmosphere is elegant an fun. We love the Pommes Souflee to start out with and the Beef Wellington just melted in your mouth. We can not wait to come back to Cincinnati again!

There are moments in my life that entice laughter and moments that lure the foul mouthed side of me. It’s not too often that I have an experience which beacons those emotions simultaneously. Therein lies Boca. Each spoonful, stab of the fork, slice of the knife and tip of the recommended glass of whatever ensues joy with a side of, “you gotta be fu* kiddin me”. Great job, team. I’ll forever dine at your table with nothing short of an inappropriate mouth.
