    Booked a reservation for Valentine’s Day at 8 PM just to come to find out they were closed without any prior notice. Although show that they were still open at 8 PM.

    Hopefully next time is open… having a reservation on a Thursday, then finding the place closed, with no messages or calls, made us rush finding somewhere else to have dinner

    It is closed. We arrived and had our office coming for a happy hour. I made a reservation and it was confirmed. We arrived to the bar tender yelling at us"We're closed up!". We had no knowledge and online it said open and hours were active. Why would they confirm if they are closed? Why would the door be unlocked and candles on the tables? it was 4:30pm.

    Enjoyed New Year's Eve dinner here and it was fabulous. The food was fantastic and the service was great. It was super busy so we could appreciate the slight delay in getting our order in. But, everything was fantastic. Will definitely go again when visiting Seattle.

    My first time in Seattle and first choice for a steak dinner. Couldn’t have made a better choice! Coming from Alberta, and the heart of cattle country, I’m incredibly biased on my steak. Unbelievable flavour on the ribeye, the atmosphere was amazing, and when the owner of the restaurant comes table to table to ensure you’re satisfied; well it means a lot! If ever in Seattle again, this will always be my first choice!

    I visited this restaurant many times already. Always great service, the food is tasty and fresh, Christian provides superb customer service, the owner is on site and tends to the needs of his customers. Love the location as well, stylish yet laid back ambiance. Highly recommended by a fellow argentinian :)

    I was hoping Boca Restobar was going to be a great place to eat, and I will still hold out that hope. It is an iconic space in Belltown! Disappointments: Our table conversation had to compete with the loud techno music; Understandably, they are understaffed-- the norm in Seattle-- the service was overall inattentive, items were forgotten, and it was rushed when someone did get to the table; The menu said the salmon was wild, but it definitely appeared to be farm raised. Positives: The grilled vegetables and mashed potato sides were delicious as was the beef, which was cooked perfectly at medium rare, and captured an authentic Argentine flavor. I would definitely order beef!! I would still recommend Boca Restobar to a friend with the above observations attached.

    We love this place. We were longtime Queen City Grill customers and we're thrilled Boca has returned the space to its QCG vibe - ie: removed the whitewashing of the bar that the previous proprietors had done. Their Happy Hour is phenomenal - get the delicious mussels for half price! We always seem to gravitate toward the same dishes - husband gets the fabulous paella and I get the skirt steak with mashed potatoes and I always have quite a bit left over for a late night snack at home. But there are many great dishes on this menu. The *only* gripe I have about our most recent visit falls more on management's shoulders than any of the servers or the quality of the food. We had a reservation for two at 5pm and arrived to find the place pretty hopping (word of their great Happy Hour has gotten out!), but there was only one server - who was also host and bartender! At one point, I had to look to make sure he wasn't cooking, too! We had to wait a very, very long time to even get water, let alone order a drink, and when we did, you could tell he was hoping we'd order our entire meal at the same time so he could kill all birds with one stone. We kind of like to space out the meal... To his credit, he was friendly and personable despite being in over his head, which we definitely appreciated. Additional servers did start to show up one by one and by the time our main dishes were served, they were fully staffed. Maybe it was an anomaly and the bartender didn't show up or got stuck in traffic for an hour and a half or something, which put our guy in a pickle having to do it all. But I would suggest, especially with such a great Happy Hour (I mean, their full-size chimichurri burger and fries for $10?? and good wine for $5 a glass?? and their trademark margarita for $7??), at least have a bartender on staff when you open at 4 so one guy doesn't have to do it all and consequently, leave his customers untended to, parched and hungry. Otherwise, I'm a big fan of the place!

    What a great place for Mother’s Day! We were early for our dinner reservation, and were treated with an outside seat on the patio and it was fantastic. We enjoyed gazpacho, shrimp, empanadas, steak, and paella along with wonderful Argentinian Syrah .  dessert with vanilla ice cream, and a shot of whiskey plus flan made for an exceptional meal! We will definitely be back again. Thanks very much.

    As long, long, LONGtime Queen City Grill lovers, Boca is a fabulous replacement - same cozy, linger-friendly ambience, wonderful service, and delicious food with substantial portions. I cannot get enough of the mussels app and the skirt steak entree - amazing! And the seafood is so fresh! We learned they purchase it straight from Pike Place Market, right off the boat. It shows. But it's been very quiet the times we've dined there - once on a Saturday evening around 6pm, once on a Tuesday around the same time. People need to show up here, or I fear it will disappear like our beloved Queen City Grill. We can't have that. Go, drink, dine, tell your friends! You'll love it, we do!

    The chimichurri was delicious and seasoned perfectly as were the grilled vegetables. The cocktails were absolutely delicious as well. Service wasn’t bad, she was polite but inattentive with water refills/getting the check. We had to ask someone walking by. The food is worth every penny.
