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.

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.

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.

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.

The highlight of the evening were the steaks we both ordered. They were prepared as ordered and very tasty. It goes downhill from there. High noise level, slow and inattentive service . The next table was close enough to be overwelmed by their conversation.The steak arrived with a microscopic portion of mushrooms and a sliver of a vegetable. Not a good value. The place is good for happy hour or small groups.

Been here several times and have enjoyed the food and atmosphere each and every time. On this visit, I had Fried Chicken and it was delicious, everyone at the table enjoyed their various meals that night.

Took a while to get seared. Had a reservation. Several empty tables seven we arrived. They seemed a bit disorganized. Service was slow and a bit inattentive. Food was tasty though my rare steak was served medium to medium well. Not good. Likely because it sat under a heat lamp too long while our server was nowhere to be found. Because of food quality, salads and mussels delish, willing to give them another chance.

Our service was excellent (thanks Zack). The flatbread appetizer was great. My husband had scallops and those were perfect. I had the market fish which was a little overcooked but other than that everything was very good. There were some little knats flying around and got in both of my glasses of wine but they don't drink much! LOL!
