Mediocre for the price. Go to The Met instead.

This used to be one of my favorite lunchtime spotsfor a business meeting and the occasional happy hour. Unfortunately since they changed chefs and maybe owners? The menu is not as good nor interesting. Also when I was there the other day they were for fruit flies flying around our table that seems highly unusual and do something. This place was known for its veggie burger and now there is not really anything to write home about. Likely won't be going there anymore!

Interesting and ever-changing cocktails and entrees; generous happy hour specials; complimentary valet parking; excellent restrooms, befitting a good hotel and restaurant; reasonable prices; our first choice when hanging around downtown Seattle

I had decided to stop going here after, on two occasions, it took over an hour to get our food. But my friend wanted to meet here because of the valet parking - so I gave it one last chance. We actually had a good waiter - he was very attentive - which is unusual for this place (the service is notoriously bad). But the hamburger - which used to be really good - is now a far cry from worth $17. Since the restaurant was nearly empty at noon on a weekday - I'm guessing I don't have to tell anyone not to bother going there.

I have held most of my business lunches at BOKA for years. The valet parking, food and service makes this one of my favorite places!

We had a large group but ordered basic dishes, surprised it took so long to get our food. Nice space and easy to access.

Modern yet cozy atmosphere. Great food and drink! Convenient location and complimentary valet parking! Easy on to freeway. Definitely be back and definitely would stay at Hotel 1000!

I was incredibly sad to discover that the Bare Burger (bear burger?) was no longer on the menu - the replacement veggie patty was not as good - and that the truffle fries were no longer the standard offering.

I will no longer be commuting to Seattle at the end of this month, so I have been going to various restaurants that I've been to before to have stuff that I really like one last time; unfortunately, a new chef at Boka changed that. No more candy bars! I loved those. And the Whoopie Pie that we ordered wasn't even an authentic whoopee pie, but the Chef's creation. I'm not a fan of that kind of thing. If you're going to advertise a whoopie pie, then serve one!
Anyway, other than that, I do like Boka, and the grilled cheese sandwich, though different, was tasty.

Used to be one of our go-to late night dining options but they have eliminated all our favorites from the vary pared down menu. Too bad.

I dine here several times a year for business lunches and I have to say that I am disappointed in the recent change of limiting the menu items. I ordered a tasty beet salad and chose to add the steak to my meal but the portion was very small - not enough beets or salad. I did order a cup of chowder that was good and the lunch bill totaled $26 with no drinks. The food was good but definitely overpriced.

Very disappointing this time around. I've dined here many times before. I always ordered their grilled cheese and tomato soup. It was the best. Noticed it was being made differently so decided I'd give the new version a try. It was terrible. The flavors didn't really jive. There was an apple compote in the grilled cheese and the brioche bread was burnt. I was surprised they brought it out so apparently burnt. I was pressed for time and really hungry, so I didn't send it back. The flavors really didn't go well together at all, and I'm sure the burnt bread didn't help. The tomato soup was pretty tasteless. Not worth $17.00. I will say however, the service was great.

I would still come here for their cocktails, as their bar is pretty cool. I won't come back for the food.

Good restaurant. We came in for breakfast since we weren't impressed with the one offered at our hotel. The food was good, not great but it was good experience and I would go again.

Boka offers a short but delightful menu of excellent choices (we were there for lunch). We had the Boka burger and the Black bean burger. Both were very good--loved the cheese on the burger! The fries are crisp and salty. My only comment is that the portions are large--no way could we (two women) eat that much. Can you offer the same selection only in a "lunch" sized portion?

Food is always great, but $6.00 for tea is insane. One is better off having alcohol. I've always had great serve there, but our waitress was super flat and distracted this time. I'm coming back on 2/22. I hope it's better then.
