Place is apparently closed for renovations but doesn’t say anything on social media or their website. Super embarrassing when you make an online reservation and you even get confirmation emails and everyone shows up and it’s closed. The worst part...we drove an hour to try this place.
Our first time to dine in your restaurant. I loved the appetizers section and desserts. For the main dish, I think you need more selection.
Service was outstanding. Pork ribs were OK; wedge salad was huge. It is a pretty place to eat.
Great modern place with amazingly tasty food. 2nd time here and it was awesome.
Excellent customer service, delicious food!
Had a very good business dinner at Boka 400. We were seated promptly, and the overall service was very solid. Good recommendations by the server. Menu was imaginative and there were a number of interesting choices. The food flavors were very good and size of portions was perfect. Definitely will come back in the future.
I would recommend this place to a friend because of the taste of the food but but not because of the price and/or the service.
Excellent customer service and delicious food! I tried the short rib dish and the meat was so soft and the vegetables were fresh. Highly recommend for date night.
We went to Boka to celebrate Valentines Day, but waited a day; Friday night. The salad (Summer Caprese) and appetizer (crab cake) (both split between us, nicely done by chef) were wonderful; tasty but brought the mouth to life. I had the Sea Bass, which I enjoyed immensely, while the Tiger Shrimp were a bit chewy, not quite as good. Our server, Vidal, was wonderful; hospitable knowledgeable, and friendly. He helped our selections and had recommendations. Drinks were great; loved them.
This incredible restaurant is our very favorite place to eat here in McAllen. We love everything.... the ambiance, the friendly staff definitely recommend!!
The place is nice and the staff was friendly. Our waiter however seemed to be overwhelmed, she seemed to be new so we took that into consideration. I enjoyed the food however since it was Valentines Day there was only 1 menu option for the entire restaurant or at least when we asked for the menu the waiter said there was no menu that day. The ambiance of the restaurant was perfect, the live music was great and it wasn’t too loud that we couldn’t hold a conversation over it so that was pleasant.
Excellent food and service. They have a 9.99 lunch menu that is a great value for the quality of the food you get.
Boka really was impressive. I went by during brunch and the food was awesome. They have a buffet style line for brunch but it tops just about most, of not all, in the area. It is worth it.
The food was delicious
The decor is very attractive, however, where I was sitting the pink/purple florescent light was right in my eye and I couldn't even see. It looks nice until you are sitting right under it...we had to move tables.
My husbands tacos were good and we had the fideo appetizer which was delicious. I ordered the corn soup as my entree and it was not good. I will probably go back to restaurant, but definitely going to try something different.
The food and atmosphere was great! But the waiter treated us like we were just there for a couple drinks and the free bread. We still showed him respect even though it took him over 30 minutes for him to take our order, and that’s because we had to call him over. If we didn’t call him we would’ve waited longer. Over all there was 8 of us and we ordered a lot of food and drinks. I was celebrating my birthday and wanted to try something new...but my experience there wasn’t that great.
I love the place the food and the service was excellent
Good Food and Great Service...that is what we all are looking for. Thanks
GREAT place!! The food was amazing and the service was great!
Pleasantly surprised! Boka 400 has an amazing menu. The food was fresh and beautifully presented. I had the two beet salad and a corn puree soup. Both were delicious. I hope I have to do business in McAllen again soon so I can go back for dinner!
I took some friends from out of town and they liked
I go for the the brunch
Hostess was not aware of reservation.
Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu but did not know how or was just too lazy to properly split the check.
The food was tasty but cold and for the conditions it came in was over priced.
It was not what I was expecting... it was mind blowing customer service! You don’t see that in the valley!! It was recommended and we went for it! Food was aaaaaamazingly good! We had the Sunday brunch for my birthday and our waiter was excellent! Highly recommend this place and we will be back!!! I shared my experience with like 10 people today! What a great feeling knowing we have this kind of food and service in the valley!! Enjoy!!!
Everything was amazing! Thank you for making my birthday special. 💗
My wife and I dinned at Boka 400, 7:30pm Saturday, July 28. The Boka Tacos were OUTSTANDING - Best in the RGV! The Tuna Tata was also note-worthy. The live singer/accoust guitar player (did not get his name but was a young guy in his early 20s) was really good! Service was prompt and did not feel rushed. I’m craving those taco and will be back soon!
The food and drinks were meticulously prepared except the pork belly tacos which were doused in BBQ sauce. Would definately go again and just omit that item.
Nice and delicious food
Wish more selection of coffee
Was a very memorable night. Very good food and drinks! Loved it! Would definitely recommend this place to all my friends.
Went here on a whim, recommended by open table. Wow were we impressed! Our waiter, Bert, was very helpful and all his suggestions turned out to be wonderful. Although you can get a lunch for only $9.99, we opted to explore the menu. Glad we did! You MUST start with the caldo tlapeno, which is a meal in itself. Then Cathi got Bert's recommendation of the Boka tacos, which rocked and I chose the pizza diavola, which is like a pepperoni pizza with honey (YES) and is marvelous! Can't wait to go back. Making evil plans to do the Sunday brunch so somebody else has to drive!
Dinner was really good and the prices are very reasonable. The scenery is nice as well, trees with illumination give a nice touch. Good for a date or just dinning with friends.
Bone in ribeye was extremely under cooked. Felt pressured to order it since they didn’t have the item that I originally wanted. Had the steak sent back and they brought it back 30 seconds later, exactly the same. Pizza was good and so were the tacos.
The service was poor(slow), need to be on top when it comes to customer service.
Boka really exceeded my expectations. Not only is their menu very affordable, but the quality of the content they offer definitely exceeds that of many other restaurants that are much more costly. Their menu offers a wide variety of different cuisines, and they all do a good job at capturing the authenticity of each food. The service is also excellent, the waiters were very attentive, and the live music was nice and not too loud, so it provided a nice atmosphere.
Food was Wonderfull and well presented. This was Easter gathering for our family. We have many seafood lovers! However, one is allergic to shellfish.
Suggestions about placement of foods in reference to shellfish allergies: 1. Shrimp tacos were above the salads, easy for cross-contamination. 2. Omelet Station sous chef needed to change gloves after working with mussels even though they did use a separate sauté pan for non-seafood ingredients. 3. Even though the restaurant is known for excellent seafood, just a bit of precaution for people and children who may be allergic would be helpful.
This place just became my favorite restaurant in the Rio Grande Valley. Decor provides a relaxing ambiance. Food selection is excellent and delicious. Even though they took Paella off the menu, the Chef prepared it for me from scratch (and it was great!). He later stopped by our table to see if I was satisfied. Service from start to finish was excellent. As a result, we booked a reservation for their Easter Brunch. Can't wait to return.
Disorganized but the food was great
excellent healthy food and service!! will definitely return!!
Creme brulee was delicious!
Service was terrible over 2 hours to get our food much less any waiter to come to our table, then they didnt have our reservation on their list so we had to wait even though i showed them email confirmation from opentable
