Food was very good, except for wife's tres leche desert which had a staleness taste. Service was a bit slow. Nothing fancy. A different menu with creative, off the beaten path items. Arepas were very good. I'm sure we will be back when in in the mood for something different. I would recommend, not as a go to place, but as an alternative when looking for creative latin fare.

My wife and I had dinner here and everything was great. I ordered toastones with pork and a delicious sauce. My wife had a beef plate. We both ordered sangria to drink and everything was great! Definitely recommend this Bocas!

Horrible service, waiters Alamana and Vicky made every request given to them as an inconvenience. They messed up our order several times and would ignore our table occasionally. Food was good, but the service ruined it. Also made us pay 18% gratuity for horrible service that was given. Please do better for others.

First time there at that location. I was under the impression it was a Restaurant atmosphere, but it’s like going to a Cuban cafeteria; kids crying, talking loud, tables were like sitting in a park. The food and the desserts were great, no complaints there.

After asking about meat we ordered as to whether it would be tough - I was told it would be very tender - this was not the case and I threw out $65.00. This is my first and lst time - No good recommendation. Service was very good.

I feel like coming here is a hit and miss on Friday & Saturday nights. Either your food taste amazing or it doesn’t, and it’s meat/poultry undercooked or your French fries taste stale.. etc..

We had a miscommunication with our reservation the first time we went here. I reached out to the restaurant and they promptly resolved the issue and invited us to visit them again. We had an amazing meal! Everything was delicious and the service was wonderful! They were so busy and still very attentive to us and working so hard to make sure all of their customers had a great experience. The hostess was especially nice and helpful! We appreciate the great service and meal we had here. Best Latin fusion around! We loved the plantains with shrimp, fried rice, pork belly arepa, and dulce de leche crepe. We will definitely visit again!
