Jose was a great waiter, greeted us in a timely manner…we ordered steak tips MEDIUM RARE and they came out MEDIUM WELL but the meat was good quality and it was tasty nonetheless.

After dinner we went to the bar and had a drink. The bartender would not make eye contact with us and wasn’t coming to us so I had to get up and go to the other side of the bar where she was chatting with a server and I asked for 2 drinks. She said she would bring them around to us. Her name was Tara, she was the least friendliest person I’ve ever met who tends a bar. The people we were sitting next to agreed she was extremely unpersonable to them as well and they had just spent over 300.00 on 2 meals and a bottle of wine…

It was a beautiful evening and we ate outside by the water. We were very disappointed though because 2 dinners were terribly overcooked. The lamb chops were ordered pink and they were brought charred. The clam strips were also overcooked and rubbery. We were treating a couple to dinner, and it was their first time at Boca so it resulted in a less than pleasant memory.

We sat down and waited 20 min before the waitress to come by, appetizers arrived before drinks, she brought the wrong wine.. food was cold, simple, no flavor! Poor service, we order more drinks and she totally forgot.. so we ask for the check and leave! It was really a bad experience!

The table was in the middle of nowhere! A little rushed for a 8:15 reservation
Will go back. BUT I will say NO to a poor space to dine.

Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Lunch special was a good value if not ordering any items with an up charge. Was expecting a more meat in the lobster roll given the price. Good distancing of outdoor tables.

Made reservations and met a friend for Sunday for brunch at 1pm and was able to get a prime table on the deck. It was fun to watch the Port Jeff ferries and assorted yachts come and go. Food and service was excellent. It got crowded fast because it was a beautiful day. Definitely going again.

Enzo was our waiter and did a great job with recommendations since it was our first time there. What a beautiful location. The music came on around 1PM and it wasn't too loud to have a conversation with him playing. Tuna tartare and lobster eggs benedict-highly recommended!!

Margaritas were so,so. Food was excellent. Service was good . Ambiance was very good. Music was good but a bit loud, at least at our table. Prior to coming we were told the restaurant was pricy. We thought it was a reasonable value. Overall worth a return visit.

We love this place! Just a beautiful day Saturday and we were so looking forward to great food and drinks. Everything is always on point. We had the Scallops and Lollipop Chops as appetizers - so delicious. Stuffed Shrimp and the Boca Burger were shared for our early dinner. Peach Tea and the Tito's Cosmo were perfect. Can't wait to go back. The band was great too!

We had a great meal at Boca. The live band was wonderful, service as always was great, including the boat side docking service.

The best part by far was the food. Every meal at our table was exceptional! I look forward to coming again soon.

Love this restaurant. The food is usually excellent, however we had chicken Milanese and it was dry. I was very disappointed. The appetizers and salad were great the dessert was fabulous but the main dish didn’t live up to the rest of the meal. Don’t order this dish, they must pre-cook the chicken and then heat it up and it is not good.

Very overpriced. Prime steak was not prime at all. Stuffed shrimp small and overcooked. Baked potato hard inside. Clearly you’re paying for waterfront dining, not the food.

Wonderful outside seating with water view. Wait staff was fantastic. Lunch specials unexpected and delicious - one French onion soup, one beef barley. Entrees were perfect hamburger and fish tacos. The lattes were made expertly and the warm brownie ice cream dessert topped off a delightful lunch.

This was my second time at Boca and just like the first time I really enjoyed the food and drinks ..( I had the lobster ravioli & the white sangria ) there was a live singer this time and the view of the sunset from our table was beautiful!
Also Boca is now one of my favorite restaurants because my now fiancé proposed on the pier after we finished dinner !

This restaurant is way over rated in my opinion. First off we were there at night in the dark so I can’t say much about the views/location but the ambience was nothing special inside and outside either. The service was bad. Took forever for a waitress to come to us to take a drink order. And then when we ordered an app and wanted to wait to order our entrees she insisted that we should order our entrees at the same time but would be sure to space them. The entrees, of course, came while we were still eating our appetizer. We had the mussels and the bread in the mussels was hard as a rock. Awful for dipping in the yummy juices of the mussels. I had the sea bass which was good but hardly worth the $38 price tag. The servers tried to bring our mussels to the table next to us and then came by our table at least twice with meals that weren’t ours so clearly there was lots of confusion in that regard. Took them a long time to come by and ask if we wanted more drinks or anything else. Overall it was not a great dining experience and I’m in no rush to go back. Disappointing.

Sat outside on a beautiful Fall day. Food was very good, service was excellent and it was very busy. Tried the Smokin Bacon, very creative! Boca Burger was cooked a perfect medium rare.

We were really looking forward to dinner at BOB. Upon entrance, we were met by the rudest twosome at the check in desk. Attitude galore and completely inappropriate! We were told it would be a 45 minute wait for an outside table while plenty of the tables were open and remained that way for the duration of our time there. Ridiculous. On another note, Jose was outstanding at service and the food was delicious! Dear Owners…take note that your managers and seating staff have got a bad reputation for attitude (heard this about them from others). Promote someone like Jose that has a smile on his face from the word go and knows how to provide for your customers!

Fantastic Views, Menu, and service! Food was well presented the apps were perfect, but the mains & sides all just a touch over seasoned or over cooked consistently across each of our orders.

This complain is minor as it is a fantastic venue and they treat you right.

Such a disappointment! First of all, no one at the front desk was masked nor were bartenders or anyone else inside. Once seated outside, masks were not an issue. The biggest problem was the food which had almost no flavor. Everything was bland and therefore overpriced. We will not be back nor can we recommend it to anyone.
