I love Boca so much. I really enjoy that I was able to try a chef’s creation the night I went. My server Brooke is always awesome. The food there is so delicious I wish I could eat it every night. Everyone on staff from the hose just walking in the door, the servers, the support staff, and all Behind the scenes , make Boca the best restaurant in Cincinnati. OK was recommended to me over 10 years ago and I try to go there at least twice a year. Sometimes I have been lucky enough to go there up to six times a year. Keep up the great work and I’ll keep enjoying the food!

Want to tastefully impress? Go to Boca. The food, wine and cocktails are always top tier; fresh, contemporary and perfectly prepared. The wait staff is appropriately attentive and responsive. Never waiting more than a few minutes for any request. They never miss.

We chose Boca to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We live out of town and had not visited Boca since it was located in Oakley. It did not disappoint. Food was creative, delicious and perfectly paced. Our server was extremely helpful in acquainting us with the menu. We actually shared the salad, the incredibly delicious corn ravioli, and an entree. That left room for a dessert of three gelato scoops, actually four because our server knew we had trouble deciding! We will be back.

We had a wonderful birthday celebration at Boca. Every staff member we encountered was perfectly friendly and efficient. The food was all delicious and beautifully presented. The person in our group who is a vegetarian was even given her own menu. The ambiance is elegant but comfortable. A delightful experience!

Jacob is excellent waiter. Food very good and innovative. Loved the 1/2 portions. The corn elite was great as were the Boca oysters. The bad boy bread is worth the calories. Will definitely be back.

We have eaten at Boca several times and always, the quality of food, service, etc. is outstanding. However, I am not sure we will return based on the value. I have no issue with the wine pours, paying for bread, and most of the menu, but this time when we ordered both full and tasting portions of the Branzino the plate really could use a side or two. It just was not enough food, especially at those prices. If you are suppose to order an additional plate of something else the server should make a suggestion. We have eaten at Michelin star restaurants both here and abroad and are familiar with the different ways food is presented.

This was our first trip to BOCA. I was 100% expecting to be blown away. I wasn’t. The service was impeccable and almost made it worth it, but we were so unimpressed by the food, I don’t think we’ll give it a second chance. Sotto will remain our go-to.

Oysters Boca: meh, at best. The slightly warmed spinach overpowered everything.

Beet Mezzalunna Salad: The greens were so salty that I could barely eat them. My wife couldn’t take more that two bites.

Corn Elotes: AMAZING.

Beef Wellington: Cooked correctly and looked gorgeous, the flavors just seemed very odd to my wife. She ate a piece and a half and we wrapped the rest up.

Beef Tenderloin with Crab: this was so disappointing. The steak was cooked perfectly, but was borderline flavorless. The smidge of crab on top was watery and extremely fishy. I actually pressed it between my fork and knife to squeeze the water out, the only saving grace was the sauce.

Cheesecake: pretty delicious!

I’m 68 and I have traveled extensively in the US and Europe. This may have been the best restaurant I have ever enjoyed. Superb, understated service. Outrageously good food...I mean outrageously good. Ambiance was unbelievable. Pricey but worth every cent. If you haven’t been there, then go. If you have been there, then I know you’ll go back.

We dined at BOCA to celebrate our “1 year until our wedding.” The staff was phenomenal, attentive and helped make the evening all that more meaningful. Our server brought us some bites, courtesy of the chef and they were delicious. Our main entrees were great! All of their food is meticulously crafted and full of flavor and the atmosphere is beautiful.

We were there for my birthday--our server Nicole asked about being @ BOCA before and I explained I had been in the building years ago when it the Maisonette as a tradition with my grandfather after seeing a James Bond movie for my birthday. She took great imitative and went to the kitchen and told them my memory...together they created a special "Goldfinger Candy Bar" with the 007 logo painted on the plate!
It was the most amazing tribute to my grandfather and created a special new memory with Boca.

The food and service were both impeccable. I could not have dreamed of a better complete dining experience. Being a Chef myself--these are the kind of moments we strive to give our customers on a nightly basis...the staff @ BOCA certainly delivered for me.

The best upscale dining in Cincinnati. Just returned from France, where we dined at Michelin starred restaurants in Paris and Aix. Boca was better. If you get in on one of their prix fixe events, so much the better. You will not be disappointed.
