    Their dinner is so much better. Brunch needs major work… We had slow service, raw donuts, bland unevenly cooked pancakes, and soggy sandwich bread.  It was very evident they weren’t ready to open at 10:30 that morning!

    This was a scheduled dinner (I labeled it as birthday). But I am very disappointed with the experience overall, Besides the host wishing my husband a happy birthday, that was it. The lady at valet parking was great. When it comes to the dining experience, I am not going back. The amount of time waiting for drinks, food or even the bread, which is not on menu. is unacceptable. I can not order something, if I don't know you offer it. But glancing at neighbors table I asked the waiter if we could have some bread too. Took forever to come to table and was after we had our appetizer. The wine was too expensive for the amount they offered me. The food quality was below a $200 dinner for 2. When we ordered a desert they never acknowledged my husbands birthday. Why do you even ask if the reservation is a special occasion? Overall, would not return nor recommend.

    This was our first time dining at Bocca and although it was for a birthday, the server was so kind, the food was FABULOUS!!! It was the little things they did for us like having a birthday card waiting at the table for us when we first arrived and from that point on, both my boyfriend and myself knew this was going to be a great meal! He got the Scallop Risotto and I got the Pork Scallopini. Both were simply divine!! Would highly recommend this to both friends and family, especially for those special occasions!

    Outside of being sat bunched up.close to a large party of women, a couple quite obnoxious, after specifically requested somewhere quiet and low foot traffic it was exceptional. Our service was top notch, the food was all so good. I had the ribeye, and while a little past medium rare the flavors were well developed. My husband had the grouper and was a part of the clean plate club in no time. Lol We will definitely return for dinner again.

    Food and service was great. Cool atmosphere as we ate outside. I hated their curved silverware which is petty I know. But, like other places, the food is very expensive. Main courses starting around 38/each. I am not saying don't pay that for a really good meal but just be aware.
