I only have one complaint, my colleague has a severe gluten allergy so he selected the dish on the menu that said GF next to it. When the salad came out it had a fried goatcheese on it and he asked what it was, knowing that was not gluten free. The waiter said, Fried goat cheese. My colleague asked if it was gluten free and the waiter said no.. My colleague said but it says it's Gluten free on the menu. The manager that came by offered something else but we were on a time crunch so he declined. By the way the server suggested to just take off the fried goatcheese. If someone has a SEVERE allergy you don't say that. Clearly if that was an option, he would have done that. I pulled the menu up on my phone and it did say GF next to the dish so I showed the manager and she pointed to the note at the bottom that you should read (according to her) and it says CAN BE MADE GLUTEN FREE... My recommendation is to change your menu. That should NOT read GF which everyone would see that item as being GF. That would be like putting VEG for Vegetarian dish and having a note at the bottom saying, could be made with only veggies.

I can't say how awsome our entire meal was at Boca. From the Heritage & Swine Flatbread, to the Strawberry Pie (3.14) cocktail and Skirt Steak, while my husband had the meatloaf and a Last Word Cocktail, we both loved all of it. My daughter, 15, enjoyed the Basil Lemonade and now wants to figure out how to make it at home and raved about the OMG burger and loved the Parmesan Truffle French Fries even more! Her Bestie that went with us, loved her salad that had the Fried Goat Cheese in the middle. We ended the meal with the Fried Cheesecake, a perfect ending to a perfect meal. Service was excellent. We will return next time we visit Tampa!

I showed up for our reservation and Boca said we didn’t have one. They told me it would be an hour wait. We left. Then open table sent me a note saying we stiffed the reservation. Pretty much wrecked our night. Thx Boca.

Introduction of new roommates for MED school
Easy casual dining, attentive but unobtrusive wait staff, funky vibe in refurbished gas station
Small but excellent portions all arrived in time
Definitely a “go back to” place for casual but tasty dining

Easter brunch

The food was delicious. However, our server, a middle-aged man, made an inappropriate comment as I was leaving the restaurant on Easter Sunday. I accidentally grabbed my hotel room key from my wallet instead of my debit card to pay, and he made a comment about joining me in my hotel room. It was very uncomfortable.

Went to brunch here with my parents and we ordered various eggs Benedict items. Food was prepared very well the smoked bacon was delicious. The decor and atmosphere was trendy, but rustic. Loved that they served local food and had different herbs (mint, basil, etc.) on the tables instead of flowers. Would definitely like to come back for dinner and drinks.

Brought a few business partners out for drinks and appetizers and had an amazing time. Staff was so courteous, and the AGM was so helpful in making sure everything was taken care of and set up.
Definitely the place to go if you want good food and good drinks!

I had the meatloaf and my wife had the shrimp and grits. Both entrees were outstanding. We had the soup of the month which was also fantastic. My only complaint was the dessert didn’t live up to the rest of the meal. Overall it was a great experience and I would go back again!

My family of five went to Boca for brunch. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The chopped salad and the flatbreads were excellent. Our server was a bit difficult to communicate with. He was not familiar with the menu but would not admit it. There is an outdoor seating area but it was closed for a private party. Love the farm to table concept and the live plants in the restaurant. We would definitely go back.

Very enjoyable experience! We had a 6:15 reservation but decided to eat at the bar and take advantage of their happy hour specials. Several great food and drink deals. Mia at the bar was fantastic; friendly and made excellent drinks. Zucchini fries and buffalo cauliflower flatbread are superb. Boca recently welcomed Horse Soldier whiskey to their bar; distillery is locally owned and operated by Veterans. As a fellow Veteran I recommend giving it a try. Thanks Boca!

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.
