          The food was mostly just ok. Paella was mushy and flavorless and the churrasco was dry. It was extremely busy and loud so you couldn’t hear the person across you.

          Went to Boca the for the first time during Seattle Restaurant Week. I should have read others reviews of this restaurant. Those commenting on the noise level of the music are correct; the music is very loud. I have never been sure why small restaurants want load music, when most people come to eat and talk. Anyway, the noise was way too loud and people needed to talk loudly just to be heard. Service was also very poor. We arrived at 6:20 and did not start getting our food until 7:00 pm. Around 6:45 I asked the waiter what was happening, and he simply said "were busy" and walked away. We were going to a play that started at 8:00 so were worried we could not finish and get there on time. At after the first course was served, another waiter took over, and she was much better than the first. Food quality was mixed. Starters of shrimp (me) and beet salad (wife) tasted good, but the salad had a huge amount of lettuce. Had she eaten it all she could not have eaten anything else. My steak tasted good, but the fries served with it were cold. My wife had pallia that was supposed to have 6 different meats/fish, but the mussel shells were empty, and there was no rabbit or sausage as advertised. Desert was good, my flan and her cake, but we had to wolf these down to get out in time. We will not be going back.

          The waiter was rude and seemed more busy then to wait on us. The waiter also was snappy when we asked for separate checks for 2. The food wasn’t that great.

          Food was excellent and so was the service! It was very crowded and we had to repeat most of our entire conversation due to the noise level.

          Food was tasty but the noise level of the music was high which made it hard to talk. Very generous portion of food. Service is a little slow but we had no after plans so it wasn’t a problem. The staff was really nice.

          Service was very slow. Meal took almost 2 hours. The Chicharron de Ribeye was very salty and steak was dry/chewy. Music was very loud, hard to have a conversation. Wait staff was friendly and accommodating.

          Went to the Capitol Hill location for Valentine's Day. Food was delicious and priced very reasonably, but the music was so loud that it was almost impossible to carry on a conversation. When we asked a server if they could turn down the music volume a bit, he said that he wasn't allowed to because the owner insisted on keeping it loud.

          From the moment we stepped in, the Argentinian vibe was very much felt - welcoming, warm, cozy, and vibrant. Then there was our waiter/server who never paid attention to us, seemed like always in a hurry hearing our orders, and just didn’t have the time to care about us, how our food was, if we wanted desserts, and even forgot to bring us our wines. Yet, he managed to take time to listen and chat with the people at the bar. His service was horrible that it made a NYE dinner date not the experience we really hoped for.

          Ceviche was tasteless. Steak was severely undercooked. To the point that it was gelatinous. Looked under a light and that baby was less seared than an ahi tuna steak. But the salsa side was great. Service was great.

          First off, the food and the service was excellent. These are the two most important things to a good dinner, in my opinion. If I could remember the gentleman's name, I would call him out for exemplary service. The reason for the mark down was two fold. I made a reservation on open table and they did not have my reservation. I had to prove it and then was simply seated where available. The other is that while the music is energetic which I don't mind, it was near impossible to carry on a clear and consistent conversation with my dinner guest. I'm good with the music, just lower it a bit.

          Closet friends out having a wonderful dinner in Capitol Hill. The food was amazing and the price was incredible. The music was way too loud. We asked for them to turn it down and they turned it down a little but it didn’t make much of a difference… It’s really hard to enjoy the people that you’re with and have a conversation.

          Food: large portions and very flavorful (strong use of garlic). Recommend the langostinos if you like seafood and garlic! Price: reasonable for quality and quantity; we went for SRW21 but they have good HH prices and even the standard menu is fair. Service: friendly but a bit disorganized and slow. Atmosphere: interesting dimly lit (with small chandelier light fixtures) eclectic feel but music a bit too loud for conversation Transportation: ideal for taking a bus, walking, biking, or using Lyft/Uber; not so great for driving (paid and unpaid parking is limited in Cap Hill)

          The grilled octopus here was outstanding. I’ll be back for that. My son and husband enjoyed theirs too. Wine by the glass was reasonably priced and good. The waiter and the bartender did a great job taking care of the whole restaurant by themselves. Cute atmosphere and fun people watching.
