Excellent! 2nd time in 3 weeks we visited! We had Juliette as our server this time and was wonderful. She guided us thru the menu and tried all her suggestions. Food and drinks were perfect. Ran into the same manager (think his name is Jeff) and he remembered us from last visit. Highly recommend. Can’t wait to come back and try other dishes.
Excellent meal!! Don’t know how people have a bad experience here. Mussels were tremendous
Boca has always been a good experience and great food. This last visit though, was less than desirable when considering the value. We left hungry and underwhelmed with our menu choices.
Sarah was awesome. We received a nice anniversary card with free dessert and from the moment we parked until the moment we left everyone wishes us a happy anniversary. Of course meal and drink were on point.
Love the places and enjoy trying new chef choices
Love love LOVVVVEEE!!!
It was my first trip there and Boca was a simply awesome place; from the super friendly wait staff to the food itself. I can't say anything bad about this place, not even a little suggestion. They just had it right.
Was in for a my moms birthday dinner before seeing a show at the Straz. I appreciate the team reading my OpenTable reservation notes and giving my mom a little birthday card and dessert. It was a nice touch!
We have been to the restaurant 3 times for happy hour and all 3 times we had to ask for the happy hour menu
EXCELLENT- Hands Down - one of our faves !! Delicious food- consistently !
As usual, a great Sunday Brunch.
We eat at Boca every time we come to Tampa. The food is always wonderful, creative and healthy. We will be back again next year.
Came in with 6 co-workers, our server Jordan was amazing, went over the menu in detail and we got everything she recommended. Food and drinks were outstanding and manager came by and visited with us for a bit. He gave us recommendations of things to do while in town and has us all going to sister concept Armature Works tomorrow. Looking forward to it. Highly recommend Boca.
Our reservations were at 1245. Our food did not come to the table until 150. Our waitress said it was because the kitchen was “so far behind” but people who were sat long after us got their food before. Bottomless mimosas also aren’t really worth it.
The food was delicious and the staff was fabulous. My son has severe food allergies and they were very well suited to accommodate his needs.
Relaxed environment, food well prepared using locally available fresh ingredients. Pleasant deck.
I was visiting my best friend and we wanted to go some place different and unique. I found this online. THANKFULLY they have valet. Food was very good. Staff was very nice. 💖
We all had a great time.
We were running late for our reservation and called to let them know so they were still able to accommodate us.
Very welcoming - from our puppy to children we were all taken care of.
Food was very tasty and our server Allison really lovely.
We will be back!
Met a friend from out of town for lunch. Perfect!!
$70 for bottomless Bloody Mary, eggs with sausage and a frittata. Food was average at best.
Great service and great food. There was a huge variety to choose from and everything is locally sourced. It took a while for our food to come out but that's to be expected at any restaurant on a busy Friday night. Everyone was friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. We had the shrimp and grits, steak and veg, and zucchini fries. The basil lemonade ($14!?!) and the Moscow mule were also amazing. YUM! We will DEFINITELY be back, well worth the drive from Clearwater to Tampa.
It was all good, but the apple cobbler dessert could have been improved. The apples were warm but still very crunchy, the topping was a very thin dusting rather than a nice layer of crumble.
Zucchini fries are excellent!
Highly recommend. Food is excellent, friendly service.
The food was over priced for what you get. We ordered the OMG burger - it was way over done and very plain. We ordered the fried green tomatoes for an app - they never came. We mentioned it to our server and he did get them out right away after our meal was given to us but they were messy looking and didn’t taste great and were not hot all the way through. The gnocchi was good - best thing we had.
Food was very good. Loved the fried green Tomatoes. Only thing that was 100% percent was the dessert. The bread pudding as a bit dry. But everything else from the appetizer, the entrees and the espresso was very good.
They had some issues with the lighting (a bit dark), but it didn't take away from the overall experience and i would recommend this place.
Our first visit to Boca and I’m sure we’ll return. We sat on the patio - it was like hanging on a friend’s back porch. We shared the cauliflower flatbread. Nice thin crust and just a hint of spice. For entrees we had the shrimp and grits and the skirt steak. Both were good but the skirt steak had an awesome presentation. Service was exceptional.
Tables were very close together...I could hear the conversation of that tables on my right and left. Speaking quietly with my date didn’t work because he couldn’t hear me unless I spoke up and then other tables could hear us. So annoying, but the food was good and our server was nice.
Service was lacking on Valentine's Day...my wife, daughter and I went for dinner and the hostess asked us upon check-in (6:15pm reservations) if we would be done dining in 1.5 hours because of other groups on the patio? Took about 15 minutes for the server to acknowledge us and the patio wasn't even busy. Rude and slow service is not a good combo for a special evening or a return visit to Boca.
Made reservations for brunch, but upon arrival was informed that they only serve brunch on the weekends, so that was disappointing. We also noted in our reservation that it was an anniversary but that was ignored by the staff. The sandwiches were decent and our server was kind, but other servers decided to cluster in front of our table to hang out and talk about their weekends which put a damper on the experience.
Not my first time here - always a great meal with an eclectic menu.
It was catch-up Sunday with a good friend. As always the service - from the valet, to the hostess, to the bar to our waiter - was a great experience! Boca is one of the first places I went to when I first arrived in Tampa almost 6 years ago...and still remains on the top of my list as the best place to go in Tampa...for any occasion. Thank you Boca for being you every time!
The noise level was very annoying, we were shouting most of the time until it had cleared out some. That was the major discouraging factor in our minds.
This spot was such a great find! Our meals were delicious and locally sourced and the atmosphere was perfect.
Great gathering place and the food was delicious!
The food was outstanding as usual, and I was thankful that the weather was nice so we were able to sit outside, as it was way too noisy inside. thanks.
Amazing! Never disappoints in terms of food quailty and service.
Miserable host, horrible table, trout that was awful. Great waiter though. Won’t go back
I was disappointed with this visit. I was told the fish special was rainbow trout and when I started to eat it I noticed the flesh was pink - not white, and therefore not rainbow trout. I also felt it tasted different. So when the manager came by to visit the table, I told him that my fish was pink and rainbow trout has white flesh - he insisted that it was rainbow trout. Later, our server came by to tell me it was not rainbow trout but “ ocean trout” - whatever that it. I have never seen any type of trout with pink flesh, and the preparation was way too exotic and it cost nearly $30. I think, first of all, the manager should know what’s on his menu, and second, they should have made some type of adjustment to my bill. A real disappointing visit.
Great food, great service & pet friendly! Really one of my favourite places to dine in Tampa.
