                        Everything was enjoyable. Only thing that was a turn-off was we were celebrating our daughter’s college graduation and the waitress said despite when we sat down, which was earlier than our reservation, we would have to be prepared to be asked to leave within 2 hours. It gave us a feeling that we were under pressure to leave.

                        Beautiful location right on the water. The food was delicious and the service was great. Prices are a little high but that's expected because of the view.

                        I was at Boca Oyster Bar this past Sunday for Brunch and found it has a great selection of raw oysters, a perfect size Brunch menu and a wonderful regular menu! My dining companion was raving about the availability of varieties of raw oysters. I enjoyed the Boca Toast with smashed fresh avocado, Calabrian chili spread, 2 perfectly poached eggs, and chipotle cream. The waitstaff was attentive yet not overbearing.

                        Went with my family as we always do (we go to this place maybe twice a month). The food quality and the portions are definitely changing. I ordered the linguini with clams and I dont know how long it had been sitting at the window but the clams were dry and hard, the pasta had absorbed all the sauce which was really weird. We had to chase the server to get a drink refill.

                        From the moment we walked in, we were treated like we were the only diners in the restaurant. The appetizers were fantastic...fresh oysters and "smoking bacon", which I highly recommend. Thick slices of bacon with Jack Daniels & maple glaze over a small smoking fire. Its hard to describe but totally delicious. Our main courses were seared sea bass and seared ahi tuna. Both presentations were beautiful and both dishes were cooked and seasoned to perfection. For dessert we split a delicious creme brulee. The restaurant has a modern, open floorplan where nearly every table has a view. Despite the open floorplan, the atmosphere is intimate and quiet. We never felt rushed by the wait staff as we lingered over our wine after dinner, even though the restaurant was filling up. I imagine that it is very nice in the summer when the doors are open and the deck is in use. We definitely plan to return and this has become a "go-to" restaurant whenever we are in the Bridgeport area. I honestly cannot recommend it highly enough!

                        Such a great dining experience. We were immediately greeted by a kind hostess. The waitstaff was very friendly. You can tell that they all work as a team. The food was absolutely delicious! Whether you’re having a date night, a night out with friends or a place to bring your family, the ambiance caters to every occasion. I’m looking forward to to dining outside when the weather allows for it!

                        Celebrated our anniversary, nothing special our waitress was great but the food was subpar in my opinion. Seared scallops were under cooked, the lamb lollipops were tough and the calamari were giant thin rings. It was horrible but it was spectacular.

                        We were very pleased with this restaurant. It was a perfect place for a small birthday dinner. Everybody'starting from hostess to our waitress to somebody just passing by helping us with our pictures was very helpful and friendly. The restaurant is big enough to have some privacy It's not too quiet and not too loud . There is plenty of parking outside and nice view. Owner/manager made sure we were comfortable. We will definitely come back

                        Valentines nite. Moved table from main to bar area. Took a while to get waiter as bar was full. Emilio finally realized we had been waiting a while and came over. Service after that was great. Chocolate vodka martini was one of top 3 we have had. Wife enjoyed small ceaser salad and my calamari was perfect. Entrees of lobster ravioli and fra diavlo shrimp and lobster was great. As usual we had to take home fair portions. Dessert of teramisu and binets were tasty.

                        Our second time here. Just like the first time, the food was amazing! The first time we saw a lot of tables getting the Smoked Bacon appetizer. and we were like bacon for an appetizer? So we tried it this time. It was the most incredible bacon we ever had. Everything else we ordered was spot on. The restaurant was packed and it appeared there was only 2 servers. So service was slow. We were there for 2 and a half hours, because we had to wait for the server to take our orders. But everything else was great!

                        We had a wonderful time celebrating my fiancées birthday. The restaurant is beautiful we can’t wait to come back in the summer so we can sit outside in the water. Fried calamari was excellent, but we weren’t crazy about the clams casino. We had the salmon piccata and lobster ravioli which were both excellent. Same for the tiramisu and cannoli filled beignets

                        Nice place to go in the summer out on the patio. I'd compare the indoor dining area to a hospital cafeteria. Food and service were decent but not worth the high price.
