Excellent food, atmosphere! So happy to have made a reservation here for our Anniversary!
We'll be back- can't wait for the summer!!!
Didn’t have a surf and turf which is very odd but food was great but will be back
Great food and wide open dining area
Great view and staff. Nice variety of options on the menu.
The space is super cool. Nice bar. Friendly service. Great wine list, bartender made good drinks. Best thing we ate were the fries. Burger was ok, shrimp cocktail over cooked a little too chewy. Tuna was a lillte weird. Tried to use open table points gift card they wouldn’t take it. Cool spot if they can improve on the food would
Service and food was excellent...
Valentine’s Day with wife and friends
Perfect evening good service excellent food friendly staff
Clams casino and chilean sea bass were all prepared perfectly. The ambiance felt a bit sterile and cold but from photos online it appears the outside patio is a huge draw in nicer weather. Our server was not on top of things and never brought the second round of oysters we ordered. That is a shame, not good for business! We will return though to enjoy the outside.
Lovely restaurant. Great service. Overall enjoyable experience. Oyster selection and shucking was disappointing.
Went at 4:30 on a Thursday, so not many inside. Tables well spaced and new diners placed appropriately with COVID in mind. Service was great and food was good. Outside dining looks to be a good option, when the weather warms up.
Everyone was well spaced and masked when necessary due to COVID. Wait staff was attentive, restaurant was near (COVID) capacity. Food was presented nicely, at appropriate temperatures and "pleasing to the palate"! The harborside view is pleasing -even in the dark with the reflected lights from nearby buildings and waterborne traffic.
friendly staff, warm and safe environment, good food
We were there on a Sunday. Maybe fri and sat would be better. Food was over cooked and dry. Small wine pour.
It was ver clean. The decor was beautiful and peaceful. The food was absolutely amazing!
Great atmosphere and excellent service
The food was great, especially the 1 1/2lb stuffed lobster and spicy chili glaze wings. Service was awesome, the staff was very attentive and very nice from beginning to end. Will definitely go back.
Great food and drinks! Boca never disappoints!!
Always a good meal. Went for lunch and all necessary precautions were observed. Beautiful setting.
It was ok. Nothing special. Ordered a burger and fries.
The place was very empty ... food was fair .. my lobster roll had clearly been sitting under a heat lamp waiting to be ordered ... The lobster was lukewarm and the roll was soggy from sitting ... This seems very strange since there was no one in the place .. no reason to premake food.
However the Covid precastion were awful.. I seriously consider leaving. Someone was behind the bar th whole time on his phone with no mask to be seen ... The bored servers were hanging out at the bar (no customers at bar) with their mask off. My server walked by the pick up window without his mask...
I will not be back ...
Everyone was polite and attentive. The food and drinks we great!
High quality, delicious food in a friendly and low-key setting.
Great lighting and ambiance. The mood was perfect given the time in the evening. The service was amazing and they were very accommodating.
My wife and I kept hearing about this restaurant being good so we decided to give it a go. We were told in the beginning this restaurant had a rough start but has fixed many of their problems.
PARKING- There is a ton of parking in front of this restaurant. Parking at this establishment shouldn't be a problem.
AMBIANCE- The restaurant was on the water. The outdoor patio was definitely beautiful and during a nice summer night, it would be excellent. However, my wife & I sat inside. The restaurant's ambiance inside is strongly lacking.
SERVICE - The service we had was very good. The waiter was very attentive and friendly.
MENU - The menu was very good. They offered a great combo of seafood & Italian dishes.
FOOD/DRINKS - For drinks we both ordered a lemon-drop martini. The martini was very good and strong.
For an appetizer we ordered a dozen oysters. The oysters were very fresh and good. They offered oysters from several different locations (Canada, Washington, MA, etc) which was nice as everyone has a different preference.
For dinner my wife ordered the Cioppino which had lobster, shrimp, scallops, clams, & calamari in a white wine sauce and I had the Boca Lobster Boil which was a 1 1/4 Maine lobster, clams, corn on the cob, & red potatoes. Both dinners were excellent. The Cioppino seafood was very fresh and the pasta was cooked perfect. The lobster in the bake also was fresh. The only knock on the bake was the clams that it came with were a bit bitter even with the butter which was not the case for the Cioppino.
PRICES - The prices were very fair for what we got.
OVERALL - I would return to this restaurant. The food & service was very good. Unlike what some people previously said, I thought they did a great job in regards to being safe with COVID. The tables were spread out, every staff member was wearing masks, and they made customers wear masks when they stood up to either enter/exit the restaurant or use the bathroom.
As usual, great food, great service. I love this place.
Beautiful setting, great service. We were seated at a table of our choice 10 minutes earlier than our reservation! The staff is great and the view is amazing!
Service was absolutely horrible-we made a 2:15 reservation. We weren’t seated until 2:45. Waitress did not come over to take our drink order for 10 minutes. Food took about 30 minutes to get and waitress never checked on us. When she finally came over we asked for the check and waited a long time for that. No manager came to check on us. No apology—NOTHING!!! Worse service ever.
Had a chance to try out @bocaoysterbar for a delicious lunch. The service was exceptional quite honestly (shout out to Clara!!!) the food was literally perfect and the cherry on top was the decor, modern look and location of this absurdly beautiful restaurant. I told you folks I am on a consistent quest to support ALL the local businesses I can possibly visit.
I ONLY post reviews of restaurants I like or love. I will definitely make a return visit in the future for dinner. We had a blast and the weather was perfect!!! #elmcitymassmedia #supportlocal #bocaoysterbar #bridgeport #steelepointeharbor #connecticut #foodie #foodiesofinstagram #instafoodie #delish #lobster #flatbread #steaktips
A wonderful place to enjoy waterside dinning in Bridgeport. Place keeps Covid compliant, unfortunately the bar is not open. A bit overwhelming for the service crews when busy, but worth the wait.
It was an awesome experience. Will definitely be going back
Nice spot and the food was good. The service staff was hard to get a hold of on a Saturday afternoon.
Small issue with my meal was corrected immediately without issue.
Reservation was for 8:30, at 8:22 the restaurant cancelled our reservation "by accident". We were one of the only tables there any it was clear the staff wanted to go home. Before we even ordered they were stacking chairs on tables and cleaning up. Moving tables inside from outside and even turned off the music before we got the check. Food was okay but we felt rushed the entire time. We were out by 9:45 and still felt like we inconvenienced the staff by staying so long. Not a welcoming experience and the food was no where close to good enough for me to try again anytime soon.
Great place to eat...would definitely recommend....
awesome as always. The staff is exceptional matching the food!!
Friendly , hardworking staff, good service, great food....lovely setting...
It was hard to get our waitress's attention. She took forever with our drinks and never came back with our straws. Wasn't attentive. Appetizers were salty and entree was disappointing. I order ed the clam casino, which were extremely salty, the calamari had gorgonzola in it and that wasn't great, and the Cioppino taste like ravoli from the can. My friend at the Chicken Milanese Stack, that was just bland chicken breast laid on top of each other. Also the Boca Lobster Boil with no seasoning. I don't think I will be going there again. The amount of money we paid, wasn't worth it. Cocktails were no good.
Bad service, waiter served incorrect orders andxtook forever to get meal replaced
This is my second time at boca and the service was not how it was when we went the first time. The ambience is always amazing but the service did not match the location.
