Excellent lunch. Be aware of asking the waiters to not have the meat fanned out. They try to make it look like more instead of one piece. Plus, it gets colder and less juicy that way. Gelato excellent.

The wait staff were very good -- professional and attentive! The food (I had the salmon) was fabulous! We were there for Easter and it seemed that the prices were a bit higher than I remembered ($28 to $36), but I will definitely be back! Thanks!

Easter Sunday occasion. Child's steak plate had a odd taste. Adults tasted & agreed. Mentioned to waitress, was ignored
Adult Hanger steak tough. Chicken bland. Caramelized carrots overdone, not editable.

Food is wonderful as usual BUT this is the 2nd time that we asked for our leftovers to be boxed to go and a portion of that meal was not in the box! I always check after it's been boxed up, since I don't want to go home and find my potatoes and carrots (and not a small amount either) were not included. Is someone in the back eating the leftovers!!!! It's pretty sad when you can't trust the restaurant to at least give you your uneaten portion of the plate that you are PAYING for!!

Also, a great smile and warm hello upon entering the restaurant would be welcome from the host/hostess.

First time there. The service was outstanding. Extremely professional waiter who really took care of us. Meal was absolutely excellent. Had that nights special Sea Bass and husband had the smoked pork chop. Pork Chop was so thick and juicy. Not dry at all which is what could happen with such a thick cut. Can't say enough good things. Really enjoyed it. Went on a Saturday night.

Always a hit when dining at Boca! We love this place. Everything is always delicious and service always impeccable! The bone marrow was yummy! And my filet was perfect! And can’t forget about the butterscotch pudding, which I have tried desperately to remake at home and it’s never the same! So tasty! Our service was great! Funny, friendly and didn’t rush us. Boca is not in our neighborhood we drove to come here and it’s always top on our list for a tasty meal. We will, of course be back and hopefully soon! Bring back the creamed corn though! Please! Us regulars miss it!

We recently took my parents to dinner at Boca. My husband and I arrived early as we traveled from Healdsburg. We had a drink in the bar, and enjoyed the best Negronis we've had in years. Both bartenders were very good, friendly and attentive. When my parents arrived, we were promptly seated in the main dining room. Our server (sorry I forget her name) was amazing. She carefully went over the specials, took our orders for appetizers, salads and entrees. Everything we ordered came out perfectly timed. We ordered the calamari and it was brought out promptly. Excellent quality, cooked just right. Next came the salads - beet salad and ceasars. Both were delicious. The entrees were also delicious. My father and I both ordered the Hanger steak, while my husband and mom ordered the special Tuna with prawns. My steak was cooked perfectly - I ordered rare. The baked potato was very nice as was the zucchini. The tuna dish was outstanding! My husband generously shared a few bites. The Tuna was fresh, flaky and also cooked to perfection, topped with whole prawns and mango salsa on a bed of scrumptious large white beans. The portions are generous - we all ended up taking to go boxes home. We sadly had no room for dessert but they looked amazing.
The overall ambience is lovely at Boca, the service is outstanding. We all remarked on how fabulous our server was, not once did we have to ask for anything.

Food is good. Antonio did a really nice job with the service. The ambience is wanting as it feels more like a Tahoe experience. The lighting is too bright and doesn’t allow for any feeling of personal space. It’s a one seating restaurant which essentially closes around 9:00 including the bar.

We sat outside near the fireplace which was very warm. They also turned on a heater located directly above our table. Very comfortable. Salad was great. The ribeye was fantastic. Four signature sauces come with the steak. I definitely recommend

My husband and I enjoyed our Valentine's dinner (salmon & hanger steak). There was a good crowd but we chose the Parma room because it is quieter and more intimate than the main dining area. We were sad to see that the cow pictures have been removed from the Parma room.

This was a fabulous restaurant that I went to. The service was impeccable and very friendly. The food was terrific I had oysters and filet mignon cooked to perfection! Tuesday night is 50% off of all wine bottles. What a bonus! I highly recommend this place and will definitely go back again when I'm in the area.

Everyone seemed to enjoy their dishes and the food was on point. Not a single bite left untouched. Just when we thought the round was over, our server, Haleigh, mentioned that the restaurant has gifted us with complimentary desserts as a way to thank my brother for his military service. We were all touched with their gesture, which made the meal even more memorable.
