The service was excellent , the music was uncomfortably loud especially since it was quite early and there were few other patrons . Perhaps as the volume could be less intense for 5:30 in the afternoon. I have dined here before and it was fine, there was even dancing and excellent energy. The music was pumping and it worked. So I will be back

Loved the food and atmosphere, the service was excellent. The only thing, which was pretty minor, was the music was just a touch too loud, so it was hard to hear one another, had to talk pretty loud. Otherwise - excellent food!

Pandemic review; hostess greeted us and we gave our name for the reservation. She informed us they were short staffed and it would be a few minutes. We were sat 5 min later for our 7pm table. First person came by to check at 7:27, just to give you an idea of pacing. Food was mediocre. I lived in Argentina and this was hardly good Argentinian food. Steaks were not cooked in the Asado style as is traditional, the chimichurri and empanadas were maybe a 2/5. Ambiance and decor were great and reminiscent of BA; the interior colors were just like being back in the Boca.

They almost wouldn’t take our reservation for 6 people. We ended up having to wait 15+ mins for a table and service was close to non existent. Food was good. Steak was a bit salty. Music was way too loud - it felt like you were shouting to speak. I couldn’t hear some people at the other end of the table. Probably wouldn’t return even if food was okay, service really turned it off for us.

I liked the food - unique in it’s flavor and taste! Full points there. I loved the cocktail too.

Ambiance is slightly off putting, but only slightly.

I think this restaurant is suffering growing pains as evidenced by the level of service and food quality. We dined three courses and would have shared dessert, but they gave us the check without asking if we wanted any. In a few months, it might be worth going back to try again. Loved the ambience, decor, and empanadas.

Loud music, so loud we could barely hold a conversation. They didn’t have enough servers so we had to wait a bit. Food was ok for the price, reasonable value. I won’t return because of the noise.

The staff we’re friendly in spite of being slammed and not having too much help because of work shortages and then pandemic. The bartender made luscious cocktails and the kitchen fantastic dinners.

Great return to dining after confinement. Food was tasty and the waiters (only two who also bussed and bartended) were busting their butts to accommodate everyone. Good job!

Apparently now open table reservations can be made after 3pm. Please keep that in mind the owner had some frustrations with that. We waited out the time and the food was worth it.

Great place to eat. Good vibe. Great food. Better drinks. If I had a nit to pick it would be that the table legs were uneven, but who cares?! Will eat there again

We didn't even get the chance to give BOCA a more accurate review because they wouldn't honor our reservation. Showed up only to be told they're having issues with online reservations, have done for a couple months, and the owner's not fixed it. There are far easier ways to receive crappy reviews but turning away customers because of lazy incompetence takes the cake.

Also, OpenTable, you suck. Couldn't find another restaurant through your app because there was no way to let you guys know we'd been turned away and needed an alternative.

We had reservations for a party of 2 and were seated promptly by the waiter (who pointed to the table) but we ended up having to wait 15 mins for server to come back and take our food and drink orders and bring water (place wasn’t packed at this time and no new customers had arrived at this point). 1 hour had passed and still no food (we ordered 1 shrimp app and 1 ribeye steak cooked to medium) however, other larger parties who arrived after us had received their food. When we asked the server he said, “let me check”. Came back and asked what our order was and said it’ll be out shortly. 30 mins later our food finally arrived (seems as though they forgot). The trend continued when waiting for our check. I wish this establishment all the best but I don’t think I’ll be returning.

Booked a reservation for 3-people on Open Table. When we arrived, they had nothing open. Apparently, they neglected to check Open Table reservations. We had to leave and find another restaurant. Very poor on their part. No accommodation for their mistake.

Great Argentinean food and cozy place with a bar scene. Loved the finishing touches of the famous Argentinean soccer legends (won't spoil it, but any true fans will easily point out the top two strikers for Argentina). Ambience was busy and energetic, which is expected given it's right on Broadway Ave E. Go for the food and the energy!

Tried Open Table celebrating my husband's 80th B-Day. Enjoyed the vibe, great menu choices and tasty, generous portions. Seasoning was perfect, as was presentation! The flan was the best we ever had. Hector outdid himself serving! We will be back another time.

Very good service and amazing food. There was an issue with our reservation and the restaurant handled it very well. Steak was a touch salty but despite that, this is one of the best restaurants I’ve been to and is reasonably priced.

Had a dinner for 4. Food was mediocre/below average. Prawns wasn't too fresh, Paella was soggy, Flan was too sweet, Sweetbread was bitter from burnt flour. Portions was reasonable and decent value for the price.

Service was super slow and took 2 hours to finish a meal for 4 on a Sunday night. Overall, not a restaurant I would recommend or return to.

Caveat: I have very high standards and a food enthusiast - Robuchon is my bar for a 5 star. For those who have lower food standards might find BOCA more acceptable.

Excellent food, generous portions. I came with friend for Restaurant Week, and we ended up ordering one of everything on the menu. All of the steak dishes were perfectly cooked, as was the roast chicken, which was moist and flavorful. The flan topped with dulce de leche was phenomenal. I will definitely be back and ha e no trouble recommending this place!

I think it's probably due to the pandemic but we wanted for 30 min even though we had a reservation and they seemed overwhelmed with service. Food took a while. However, the food was WONDERFUL. So...if you're patient and don't mind the noise of a young busy, vibrant place, you won't be disappointed with the food

Everything we ate was fantastic. The best Octopus I've had in Seattle, smokey and tender, not at all chewy. The steak was amazing with a flavorful chimmichurri. Panna cotta was also the best I've had, perfect texture.
