    Food wasn’t that good or authentic. We should’ve stayed in Chinatown. Chairs and tables were uncomfortable, they were patio chairs

    I have never tried pho before and I was blown away with how good it was. I picked this place because I liked the lighting inside and because they had vegetarian options for my friend. My two friends and I all want to go back ASAP! So so so so good!!!!

    Such a cute spot! I came here for my birthday so my friends and I had the bottomless brunch. Great drinks, amazing food. I would 1000% come back again! Waitstaff seemed to be very busy, which was fine with me, as they were all very polite and friendly.

    Tiny portions, food far from authentic, need to up the portion in order for people not to be hungry after a meal. Outdoor table was crowded and squeezed.

    Was excited to check this place out, good reviews and right in the heart of Soho. How wrong I was... Ugh, this was one of my worst dining experiences in the city to date. Service was slow, obviously they were under-staffed. Half way through our meal our server I guess moved to an inside section, we eventually flagged another one down who just took over...Food was bland and the timing was terrible, we were there way too long. The worst was the beef dish, was like seared steak with literally zero flavor, we were convinced we were being pranked. No salt, just red hot beef. On the lighter note, the manager did take care of us and felt bad but thats not why I eat out. I want good food and happily will pay whatever the price. I guess we should have realized that it was maybe just a spot to grab a drink when no one around us was really eating. This is my first review on here, I hate to write it but I still am shaking my head almost a week later. Like what in the actual f**k happened?? Best thing we had were the spring rolls and even those were sticky and falling apart. Really turned me off "Vietnamese" for a while.

    Absolutely inedible for anyone who cares about Vietnamese food. If you have only had Americanized Asian food, this restaurant may be okay for you. But all others should steer clear.

    Food was fresh and tasty, no more no less. The service was frankly disappointing, with some basics apparently 'out of stock' eg no tonic water. The venue was cozy to the point of being cramped.

    This was arguably the worst dining experience that I have ever had, along with being the most stressful. Highly do not recommend ever eating at BoCaphe! Food ordering: I should have expected this to be messy considering the seating situation was rough. This is where the night took a turn and went downhill really fast. We ordered food and drinks for our table. Half of our group got their food, the other half didn’t. The half that didn’t get their food sat waiting over 2 hours before their food actually came out. During this time, our group constantly asked what is going on and where is our food? No apologies, manager wasn’t present and overall didn’t care about our experience. Other tables got their food and left before the other half of our party received their food. At this point, I was very frustrated and it was unacceptable for them to be inattentive to our group and while still bringing our food for other parties. Taste: This is the worst Vietnamese food that I’ve ever had in my life. The food was very bland and there was absolutely no flavor at all! We ordered Luc Lac, salmon Bao Bun, crispy chicken bo bun (noodles), summer rolls, crepe, etc Service: Manager was very unhelpful after the whole ordeal. We had a conversation with her to see what accommodations could be made to make up for this very poor dining experience for a birthday dinner. She immediately got defensive without apologizing first. She tried to say that our party was larger than the initial reservation but I called in a week prior to confirm that they would be fine serving a larger group. Then she proceeds to offer to take off the mandatory 20% tip, which annoyed us even more because why is the service staff being docked for this instead of the restaurant taking ownership of the situation and taking a percentage off of the bill instead. We didn’t accept that offer because we would tip the staff anyways and did not feel that the full blame should be on them.

    We waited 45 to an hour for our food. The waiter lied about forgetting to place our order. The manager asked us if we’d like the meals to go without comping them and merely chomp’s the iced coffees. Manager apologized several times but didn’t do enough. This is the first time I have ever experienced a waiter out right lying.

    First time here and I was very impressed with the quality of the food and the service, not to mention the hip, fun vibe. We were early and invited to sit and stayed several hours (party of 3). Never felt rushed. Really enjoyed the menu. I will go back!

    Terrible quality of food. Ordered the pad Thai which was definitely not a pad Thai . Took one bite and the sauce was basically all sugar and the noodles were undercooked and chewy. They brought us the wrong drinks and my friend who ordered the summer roll with shrimp was missing the shrimp. The manager insisted that there was shrimp in it but there must have been invisible. This place used to be a cool authentic spot but never again.

    Such a disappointing dinner, all three main courses arrived with 20min gap, so we had to eat them separately. Our waiters kept changing and it was crowded, hectic and just a mess. My friend ordered a roll dessert and it was just bad.

    Food was just ok. We went specifically for the Pho and were disappointed. Very mediocre version of pho. Just salty broth with no depth of flavor. Cocktails were good as well as chicken & ginger spring rolls. Atmosphere and service were fine. Wouldn’t rush back.

    BoCaphe caught my eye after seeing the gorgeous art piece online. Unfortunately, this wasn't an area we could sit in despite none of the tables being reserved. Nevertheless, the food was pretty decent. I came for pho specifically, but after seeing the portion size for $15, I opted for a bao bun bowl instead. The meal was filling, but I've had better especially for the price.

    It was a birthday dinner and 1hr 15 mins in.. they told they needed the table for another big group reservation.. we didn’t get a chance to look at the dessert menu. If we were told they needed the table at a certain time, we would of accommodated. The rows of tables behind us were empty. We were discouraged to get dessert - which we were planning to do for the birthday celebration.. we ended up paying quickly and leaving. We did not feel welcomed to stay and linger. It was not busy .. several tables were open. We would of understood if it was packed and people waiting.

    It what I had expected. It’s was certainly not the quality of Vietnamese food that I thought I read about on reviews. It’s simply for one’s who haven’t had any decent Vietnamese food prior. It’s super tight in seating and super loud inside. The food took a while to come out, but it wasn’t even very busy.

    Loved the food and the many vegan options! As I've been on the hunt for healthy restaurants that have cute outdoor setups with heaters, this one was right on target. For the first time dining outdoors on a chilly day, I wasn't cold!! I had the veggie and tofu rice bowl and my dining partner had the salmon teriyaki. Delicious and affordable...a good choice for both vegans and omnivores. I very much appreciate that the menu is clearly marked. My only complaint was the music was just too loud to enjoy a conversation.
