Delicious steaks, great salads, good veggie sides, always reliable
The waiter was excellent and very professional. The food was good but not outstanding. The biggest disappointment for us was the 3 children employed as front of house meters and greeters. They were all totally useless and ignored us when we entered, made no eye contact or offered a polite welcome. We had to say something as we were being ignored. It was as if we were interrupting their conversation and we should wait until they were ready to talk to us. Were it not a special occasion I would have walked out and gone somewhere else.
Consistently a go-to place for a variety of choices. The steaks are always a guaranteed choice but nothing on the menu ever disappoints. Boca Tavern works for family night outs, business meetings or special occasions and the wine and drink selection will not leave you parched.
Great food. Good service. Wonderful evening with my wife.
Easy reservation for 5
Good drinks mixed and wine and appetizers (calamari)
Timely dinner, well prepared
2 Pork Chops (one chop was undercooked)
Overall enjoyable dinner out on a Friday night
great as usual...we've been coming here ever since they opened.
We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary at Boca - and it was just outstanding - excellent food, great service - recommend for all :-)
We returned for the Sunday Prime Rib offering and were pleased once again, but puzzled by the lack of patrons considering the quality and value. The service was outstanding so I don’t know why anyone would hesitate in making this a “ go to” location for a quality dining experience.
The experience was good with two exceptions. Ordered Tito's and tonic that didn't taste great, but more importantly the medium rare ribeye was too rare on one end and perfect on the other. Also the steak knives are worn and too dull to cut rarer meat. I normally love this restaurant and we'll give it another try
Very disappointing meal. The cocktail did not taste good--almost chemically--and was unusually small due to the giant icecube that filled the glass. The wine was good. The salad was tasteless. The service was polite but sub par. Burger was ok. But very unwieldy and came with no condiments. Overall, the restaurant is not worth its prices. It either needs to improve make it more affordable.
My food was not hot when it was served. Portion of special meal was small and presentation on plate was so-so.
The hostess was unfriendly and unhelpful. After she told us the patio was full for a private party the manager came and he gave us a table ...on the patio! Wait staff seemed harried. Appetizers were very good but main courses very expensive for what you got.
Menu appears to have become less options. Used to have good seafood but the Petrale Sole I had was very dry and too salty and arced over a bed of lukewarm spinach and Burt potatoes. And with all the tomatoes it was trying to be too fancy. Definitely would affect any future consideration. The waiter was excellent and the salads excellent but on the whole of the 3 dinners ordered it was very mediocre cusine so the special evening was a bit disappointing!
The salmon was good but had too much liquid in the bottom of the bowl.............
Nice outdoor seating. Great servers. Menu had prime rib as a special meal. Well worth it.
It’s been a few years since I’ve eaten here, and I don’t know why I waited so long! A friend and I had an early dinner here, and absolutely enjoyed everything - from the apps to the entrees (sadly we couldn’t stay for dessert), to the awesome service we received. My only complaint? If you’re the manager and you feel like randomly stopping at each table to ask how the guests are doing, please wear a tag or at least introduce yourself. It’s unsettling from a diner’s perspective, especially if you don’t know the conversation or mood you’re walking in to. Please wear a tag or a “Boca Tavern” polo shirt...or have one made! Other than that strange encounter, it was a lovely evening.
We wanted to try their Sunday prime rib and it was excellent as was our waiter. Undercooked broccoli was the only minor disappointment, but we’re talking about broccoli here, right?
The butterscotch pudding was an unusual and very pleasant surprise.
There were not that many diners when we were there, so noise was no issue. We plan to be back very soon.
Friendly, efficient service, excellent pacing of food delivery, attentive support staff, reasonable prices, and DELICIOUS
Delicious food, excellent service, nice, quiet room with just a few patrons.
Hated the upholstery in the booths. Service good food good. Not too crazy about “cowboy theme
We ordered a variety of food. It was all very delicious especially the steaks! It was a perfect night to sit on the patio. The bloody mary’s were scrumptious.
Great food & wonderful outdoor dining for Summer warm nights. Ask to sit at one of Julie's tables---Excellent service, fun personality. House wine selections (Chardonnay & Cabs) excellent, Hanger Steak was cooked perfectly, Bouillabaisse was nice, but could have used a bit of heat, Duck Fat Fries were crispy (not as flavorful as expected, but good). Great atmosphere for date night.
The food was good , the patio seating was nice on a warm evening .Our waiter acted a bit rushed and wasn’t friendly .
Perfect patio dining on a warm day or evening. The food is reliably tasty and served beautifully. The interior can be noisy. Our service was quite slow, but the day was so warm and lovely that we did not care.
Good variety of well prepared food in a friendly atmosphere. We were seated at a table on the patio on a perfect summer evening. We were very happy with our experience.
We were there for a 6:00 reservation and so there was nobody in the side-room except us, which was great. Music was turned up really high - we ended up turning it down ourselves via the wall-mounted knob. Definitely got louder as more people came into the room closer to 7. Food was good overall, though a bit pricey. My partner had a clam chowder and when she asked for some oyster crackers or something to go with it, she was told they didn't have any crackers. I gave her the white bread toast points that came with my tuna poke dish. That poke dish was good, but the blah, bland, dry white bread toast was a disappointment - they definitely could have used a different bread for the toast and maybe buttered the toast. My dining partner also got the short ribs, which she said were good but the presentation was pretty lackluster. The service was very good, but it bordered on overly-solicitous. I like wait staff checking on me, but not every five minutes during the meal! All said, I would come here again .
The prime rib and steak were excellent, as were the salads. Also the mashed potatoes and baked potato and broccolini.
They used to put grey salt on the butter which I liked and did not notice this time.
Great service and a very nice meal.
Boca is a nice, quiet restaurant with good patio seating. The menue is limited (mostly meat) with no vegetarian option although the waiter told us they could whip something up for us. I had the bbq ribs appetizer as a main course and they were a little little disappointing. Our waiter was nice but there was a screw up on our order so it took a long time to come. They did ofer us free coffee to make up for it. I'd try them again but not for a while.
We had dinner out on the deck and it was very nice. The food was very good and the server was a bit busy but was very friendly and made good recommendations.
Excellent service, food and atmosphere! An excellent experience while entertaining clients.
The experience was great everyone seemed very pleased with their meals and I would recommend them as well as eat here again when I am in the area.
Good service and food selection. High noise level made conversation difficult as the restaurant filled up. I would definitely visit again.
Our waitress was fabulous! She enlivened the evening and was extremely helpful.
It was an amazing evening at Boca Tavern for Father’s Day. Will keep coming back for that clam chowder. One of the best I’ve had!
I always enjoy Boca. We all got the Prime Rib this time and it was great.
Whenever I get a steak craving, this is one of my "go to" places in Marin.
Deeelish! Love this place as always, service was great
Service was great. Staff friendly and attentive. We both had the hanger steak. Tender, flavorful. The dipping sauces they provide are excellent and add to the flavor. Zucchini side dish with steak was crispy and fresh.
first time here. Asparagus bisque was really good. hanger steak was cooked really well. the linguine and prawns were excellent. the vanilla ice cream on the brownie was some of the best vanilla ive ever had. this place is our new favorite restaurant in Novato.
The Hanger Steak special was a delicious choice and very reasonable price. Boca might work a bit on the presentation on the plate!
Excellent food; excellent service.Nothing more to say.
