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.

Return trip for Birthday celebration. Five star experience still alive in Cincinnati. Service was impeccable and matched the quality of the cuisine. The multiple smaller plate selections were perfect, providing opportunities for a variety of well prepared tastes. Please continue to preserve these high standards, that have been a mainstay in Cincinnati over the years. Not many left. Thanks and great work!

An incredible first experience. I know of no other restaurant in Cincinnati downtown like this one. I'm looking forward to trying the two adjoining restaurants owned by the same group

Boca Oysters, Scallop with Brussels and Truffle, and Creme Brûlée are phenomenal. Caprese with Buffalo Mozzarella, King Crab Carrot salad, and Amish Chicken are definitely worth a try.

Service at Boca continues to decline, at least this particular server. We were stuck in the upstairs room and basically forgotten about. 30 minutes for the first drink order, two entrees never showed, etc etc. . Server was impartial to us being there. After decades of visiting Boca, the declining service and personal touch has pushed us to say- no more. It’s a shame.

Food and service outstanding. More about quality over quantity as most dishes are small plates. We had 5 between the two of us which was more than enough… everything was delicious!

I kept spitting out unchewable bits of my $25 hamburger. And some of our favorite items were not on the menu. We love to be there, but I would sacrifice the service to have exceptional food. The leek appetizer was delicious. It will be a while till we go back.

Service and ambiance are outstanding. Are servers, Zak and Bryan, were attentive and very knowledgable. Food was excellent, as it has always been for me, but with one small hitch: one dish was quite spicy without mention the menu. The diner who ordered it traded it with another diner who did not mind the spiciness. One must keep in mind that portions are small and that one is trading quantity for high quality - highly recommend for a fine dining experience.
