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.

Boca has the most delicious food! You can’t beat the hamachi, scallop/brussel sprouts and cappellacci. Enjoyed every mouthful!

We’ve always ranked Boca as our “most loved restaurant “ in any country…
With the reopening it seems things are a bit different, employees, music etc. Ambience is not the same, we’ll go back again for the best food, however we’re going to visit further apart as see if possibly a hiccup.

Wonderful food atmosphere and service. We shared small plates and they were all good but very small. Would love to see the portions be enough for 2 or 3 people to have more than just a bite!

1st timers, and it truly was an amazing experience! My girlfriend and I sat by the kitchen and it was definitely a treat to converse with the chefs and watch them work! However, my favorite part was the food! Just amazing! Beautiful colors, unique flavors, and lovely plating! And believe me, we’ll be back!

Words can not express how lovely the whole experience was from start to finish. I was seated at the bar for my reservation but that didn’t lessen the experience one bit. The wonderful bartender was so attentive, I was truly made to feel special by all of the staff, and the meal was second to none. It was such a one of a kind night thanks to everyone’s kindness and the food can’t be described accurately! Each course was bursting with flavor! Absolutely unforgettable!

It was all delicious. My favorite was the ravioli “San Dominico”. I used my bread to soak up what was left of the sauce. It was outstanding. We also loved the seared foie grad, pommes soufflés, spring vegetables and the scallops with brussel sprouts. I did not like the escargot. It had to much raw garlic flavor me neither. Our waiter Seth was amazing.

One of the best dining experiences my fiancé and I have ever had. We were going there to celebrate my last day of chemo and the waitress (Nicole) went above and beyond. Nicole was so sweet and gave us the whole "Boca experience". They didn't have to do this but the staff drew a cancer awareness ribbon on a menu and all of the staff signed it along with surprising my fiancé and I with a comped meal! We were blown away, we started balling, and hugged all the staff that made this night special. This past year has been difficult on everyone but going through cancer treatments has made it especially hard. Boca's dinner made it the tipping point that things are getting better. We couldn't have planned a better evening. Thank you Boca and Nicole for celebrating this huge milestone in my life. Can't wait to be back!

Boca always gets it right. Flavors and textures are invariably excellent - no matter what you order. And you don't have to break the bank - both the higher-end Filet Boca, and the mid-priced Amish Chicken were amazing. Looking forward to coming back again.
