While the live music was nice, it did make it difficult to have a conversation. Overall it was an enjoyable experience where sharing is encouraged! Food and service were really good.

A wonderful atmosphere with very attentive staff. The live music was also a bonus, the girl that was singing Friday night was excellent! Only downside was that we were expecting a bit more to our food. Don't get me wrong, the food was to die for, but unfortunately it just wasn't enough and with the price point we expected more of a meal. Me and my two other friends ordered the chicken burger which was delicious, but was only a burger and nothing for a side (with the price point we expected something like fries atleast). Though, my other friend had a rice bowl which was to die for (and a great portion). The drinks were fairly priced & DELISH!!

Excellent food and drinks - we really enjoyed being put at a booth as it was a birthday dinner for a group of girls who wanted to catch up! My only complaint would be that the performer (who was quite talented!) was very loud, we had to yell at each other to have a conversation. Would definitely go back but would pick a night that doesn’t feature live music.

Interesting experience, enjoyed it with friends. I liked some of the food but the chicken paella was a disappointment, little meat and not much flavour to it. Good value though, you can dine here for less than $100.00 for two people, including drinks.

Fantastic experience ! The food is incredible, very quick service, and each server that came to our table was super friendly. The only room for improvement that I could see would be air conditioning. We were quite uncomfortable in the humidity , but otherwise can not wait to come again!! Lovely spot!!

Much better second opinion, second experience!
We tried to eat at this restaurant on July 25th...we had a reservation but when we got there we didn’t feel comfortable with the amount of people there or the table we were offered. We left without eating. After leaving our review regarding our experience I received a text from Derek, from Boca, regarding same. He apologized for our experience and asked if there was anything he could do for us. I wasn’t sure about going back but I was very appreciative of him reaching out to us. We touched base again and I made a reservation for August 26th. It was an early reservation and the restaurant was not as busy as the first night we went. Our server, Sam, was a real sweet heart. The food and wine were amazing! We shared the meatball stew, hot and sweet pork belly, blackened cod taco, moose spring roll, and cerdo wontons. I think our favourites were the wontons, pork belly and shrimp. I am so glad that Derek reached out to us because we would not have gone back to the restaurant. The fact that he did reach out really showed us his dedication to the restaurant and customer service. We had a great experience and we will certainly return.

Boca Tapas Bar provides an excellent atmosphere for socializing with your group, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the food is delicious! My husband and I love the idea of sharing dishes and have had a few wonderful evenings there with friends or just ourselves. We will return!

Made reservations two weeks in advance for our 28th anniversary. We got there, they didn’t know what to do with us. It’s like we didn’t have a reservation. They put us in the corner next to the bathroom and where the staff where coming and going with dirty dishes. We asked if there was another table. The waitress came back after 5 mins and said there was another high top table right in front of the bar or a low table by the wine room. We didn’t want the table right next to the bar and when she brought us over to the low table near the wine I laughed out loud. It was near a mop. We left and found another restaurant. The restaurant felt very crowded. I’m not sure how closely they were following the Covid 19 guidelines. Our “reservation” was a joke. I’m not sure if it was because we booked it through this site but I will never find out because I have no intention of ever returning. They lost out on the patronage of very good tippers.

The Moose Spring Rolls, Garlic Shrimp, Hummus, and Fish tacos were delicious. The Famiy size charcuterie board was underwhelming - 1 type of cheese, 3 types of meat and a few olives etc. for $50 spaced out on a huge board that filled our table. The service was great. We were a group of 7 and we were tightly squeezed into a booth, which wasn't great for sharing tapas.
