Pretty restaurant with lovely views of the gold course. Waitress Jackie was outstanding. Menu was large and the food was very good. Enjoyed the vegan burger. The bar is part of the dining room, so it can get noisy.

Horrible experience. we ordered tuna which came out still frozen in the middle. Sent it back and a half hour later the waiter informed us that the second plate was also frozen. The waiter did not seem genuinely concerned. He said it happens all the time.
My wife never got to eat.
The front of house manager just gave us lip service.
Asked speak to the kitchen manager but he was not working.

Sadly it was not our first time dining at Boca Grille and I do not recommend you dine there. There are plenty of well run restaurants in the area!

Totally loved the maple covered bacon, a must! Although the seafood is excellent also. Not cheap, but you do get excellent quality. Sammie the waitress was awesome too.

Jackie, the waitress was excellent. The meal was good . . . Boca must do something about the noise level, it is like an echo chamber in the main dining room.

This place just opened in April 2021 and is owned by the same Boca in Bridgeport. Arrived while it was still sunny so we requested to sit outside and ordered drinks while watching people finish up their games. Good cocktails and wine selection. Started with the nachos; there was plenty and served in a small iron skillet. We ordered the poke bowl and shrimp scampi. Very tasty on both.

Overall verdict, pricey but tasty and being on a beautiful golf course makes it worth it. More of an occasion kind of place.

Boca is a good place with good food and great service. Our waitress (Jackie) was excellent.

Unfortunately, the noise level inside the restaurant is near unacceptable.

Very nice dining experience especially outside overlooking the golf course.
Food is pretty good, fresh and nicely presented. I had the lobster roll twice and it needs something. Not very tasty, needs some type of seasoning. But all in all a very pleasant place!

We really enjoyed our dinner at Boca. The Prime Rib was the special and was generous and delicious. The wait staff is friendly and courteous. We were fortunate to eat outdoors as inside the noise was really awful. I hope this can be fixed. It was like an echo chamber. We look forward to a return visit.

Lovely place but sauce on steak tips unappealing: olives overwhelmed octopus but I’ve seen others who loved it.
Service was great. Need to work on sound-dampening. This is their shakedown period so we will go back.

Really liked this new Fairfield restaurant. Location and ambiance is very nice - large space with lots of views of the beautiful golf course. Great menu, lots of options. The stuffed clams were excellent, though the Onion Soup not as much. Very good beef carpaccio, grilled octopus, and filet tips. Next time we're definitely going to try one of the steak options.

Stopped in for dinner with my family on a Wednesday evening. Great, prompt service from start to finish! Very family friendly, abundant outdoor seating, spacious indoor dining room and large bar area with TVs. For apps we had nachos which were piled high in a cast iron skillet with all the fixings and a half dozen blue point oysters. Drinks were generous and never empty- entrees were a burger, sashimi tuna salad, chicken fingers and salmon. Really nice new edition to the area and easily accessible to Trumbull, Easton and Fairfield. Very family and kid friendly also seems good for a girls/guys night out. Excited to go back !
