Bocato has a varied menu that works if your party all want to eat something different. Their creative appetizers are good for diners who want “small plates,” and the bar’s “by the glass” wines are very good.
Excellent as always. Prosciutto and Fig Flatbread. Scallop appetizer. Nice wine selection.
I love Bocado Cafe. A varied menu, not fancy but very good food at fair prices. And the staff is terrific.
Nice big space and atmosphere. Food was delicious, shared mushroom flatbread which was outstanding and a chicken avocado sandwich. Everything was very tasty. Price point is just a little high for casual lunch but would return again.
The restaurant was busy on a Saturday night but my boyfriend and I were seated within a reasonable time with check-ins from the owner. The waitress was super friendly and the owner came around and checked in with us again once we were settled. The bread and wine were amazing. Great night!
As always Bocado came through as a solid meal whether it be lunch, dinner or brunch. Everyone in our family Alyssa finds something yummy to eat and that’s not easy w three kids who all have very different palates. Thank you for another great meal!
Good food for a good price. Wait staff busy and a little slow, but certainly within an acceptable range. Only wine and beer.
The food was okay. The service was good and the atmosphere was real nice.
Convenient to UES venues like the 92Y. Good food and pleasant service.
Loved this place. Neighborhood gem and now a staple.
We had a reservation, got seated right away. Crowded but waitperson arrived immediately. Cheese plate was enough for an entree +. Rocket salad excellent, gnocchi as entree enough for 2. To
A very trendy UES eatery. Very very busy with a nice menu. On the plus side, the food delish, the menu was varied and the staff was lovely although spread a bit thin. Although they were very busy, they never made us feel rushed. On the negative side, although we had a reservation, our table was awkwardly placed. They squeezed us into a table for four when there were five of us. Our fifth had to sit on the end jutting out into the aisle. We did not say anything, but it should have been planned out better.
Menu items sounded really good (e.g. Brussel Sprouts w/ Chorizo) but the execution of the dishes was uninspired and all of our dishes were too greasy. Our waitress, Priscilla, was a delight at least and gave very good service. If I were to go back I would probably stick to the burgers section of the menu.
Delicious brunch loved the spring salad tasty, excellent service, have choices I don’t eat pork and they have turkey bacon which is rare at brunch places, this place has become one of my favorite places to brunch from now on..! P
Great surprise, passed it so many times. We all enjoyed, will definitely return
The server made our meal here, which I always like to call out to support good customer service. She was fantastic and I wish I had her name. My daughter ordered a burger medium rare and I ordered same for my salmon., Both came raw, cold in center. I am always afraid to send back under-cooked food as it is difficult to reheat without overdoing it. Which is exactly what happened. But it wasn't the server's fault and she graciously waived a glass of wine and brought us a dessert sampler. It's only because of this that I will definitely give it another try.
Delicious food with generous portions, but very noisy. We will go back again!
Went to this restaurant because we received a gift card for Christmas. When the bill came we were told that the tip could not be paid with the gift card. When we attempted to get change at the bar for the tip, the bartender said he "couldn't make change" for us. The Restaurant manager just shrugged his shoulders. FINALLY our waitress gave us change from her tip money. Also, two kids came to our table soliciting for money for their basketball league--why do they allow this to happen? We won't be back.
Overpriced sandwiches and wine (even by NYC standard prices).
The brunch was very good. Delicious fluffy pancakes with fruit, servers varieties of eggs Benedict, crepe, and omelette—all delicious. It is a good value for what you get, and the service was fantastic.
Quick service, abundant food, very good quality. Great neighborhood restaurant.
Great restaurant! I’ve been there a few times. Service is always good. Food delicious! Good selection of dishes.
I tried it again after a prior negative experience and it was much better! Table was not as crowded, the server checked in regularly and hostess was much better than previous rude hostess. The food was very good, as it has always been. I am glad I tried to again as I had always enjoyed going there and am happy that I can continue to frequent this restaurant when I am in the neighborhood.
This is a great, not too stuffy wine bar that I go to whenever I'm up near Museum Mile. Great selection of food and appetizers that should please everyone.
the food was good, service really nice, able to have a conversation on a Sunday night
We had dinner at Bocado Cafe and enjoyed it very much. The food and service was great.
Convenient for 92Y. Food is fine but service is slow and our waiter was slower
Eclectic and interesting menu. We were there for brunch. Everything was almost perfect but the meals were a bit cold—it was a frigid day in NYC so I will toss that off to the weather as everything was freshly made and beautifully presented.
Enjoyed a dinner with a friend here, ambiance was lovely. Food was good, nothing spectacular but worth the price. Service was great. I’d go back!
I felt the food was more expensive than it should be, but the environment was nice. Don’t sit near the windows in the winter — it’s drafty.
Good vibe, good food
10 times or more i have visited this amazing place. love it every single time. please keep up with brunch complimentary drinks. this is a nice addition
Perfect for brunch !
The food was good, but 660 dolars 5 people it's a little too expensive
After having been to this restaurant many times in the past, I was very disappointed in my visit today. We arrived 20 minutes early for our reservation today and the hostess said it would be a few minutes. We understood as we were early. A few minutes later, she led our party of three to a small table for 2 and said it was the only table available. We were squished so close to another table that I could smell the perfume of the person next to me, which gave me a headache throughout our meal. Our server hardly ever came to our table and it was difficult to get her attention to get coffee or anything else we needed. Our table was so small that had two of us not ordered flat breads that came on long narrow boards instead of regular plates, the three plates would not have fit on the table. At the end of the meal, I received a phone call from the hostess, who I believe said her name was Lisa, who in a nasty tone told me it was now 1:30 and that I had a 1:00 reservation and asked whether I would be showing up. I told her I was already in the restaurant and went up to the hostess stand, and it was the same woman who seated us, and I showed her which table we were and she did not apologize. I traveled a distance to this restaurant because I like the good, but the unpleasant experience was not with it.
When we arrived our reserved table had been given away so the staff was very nice and made up for the inconvenience adding a complimentary drink and excellent service
The food was delicious! The waitstaff was lovely. A little pricey but yummy.
Loved my salad and Bellini! Server was friendly and knowledgeable. Would go back again as the menu was interesting and varied.
good brunch place!
