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.

BOCA is top rated in Cincinatti for good reason. This is an outstanding restaurant in terms of food and service. This was our third special occasion visit and the best. Our waitress was attentive to our party of six, communicative, helpful, offering great suggestions and even generously ended the meal with a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine. The food was outstanding. The only issue is the A/C intermittently blows very cold air on certain tables. If they could fix this, it would be an absolutely stellar, one of a kind dining experience besting any restaurant in the country. BOCA is wonderful and worthy of repeat visits.

Since other reservations were not available, we chose early evening seats at the bar. It was interesting to watch the kitchen staff at work. Our meal was very good. The yoghurt and asparagus salad was very good as was the tenderloin. Recommend!

It was our first time dining Boca. Our waitress, Jen, was super. She help us with the menu and made some suggestions. We were not disappointed in the least. The food is outstanding, as well as the cocktails. Boca will definitely be on our list in the future when we celebrate special occasions.

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.
