Michelin starred Boka Restaurant has been a fixture in Chicago dining since 2003. In January 2014, Chef Lee Wolen joined as Executive Chef/Partner after the restaurant underwent a major renovation. Since his time at Boka, critics have taken notice. Phil Vettel of Chicago Tribune and Eater Chicago both named Lee as “2014 Chef of the Year.” Most recently, Lee was named 2015 “Chef of the Year” and Boka restaurant was awarded 2015 “Restaurant of the Year” at Chicago’s coveted Jean Banchet Awards. Boka’s food features contemporary, American cuisine, focusing on seasonality and sourcing as many local ingredients as possible. Pasty Chef Meg Galus joined Boka’s kitchen in 2015 and provides a seamless transition between savory and sweet, mirroring Wolen’s use of excellent, high quality ingredients that are prepared and plated beautifully.

This is one of our all time special dining experiences! The service was amazing! There was a table of very loud young women celebrating a birthday and our waiter knew they were bothering everyone in the room! Without us asking, he moved us to a quite table to finish our meal! It was over the top great attention to us! We can’t wait to return next time we are in Chicago!

It was a very good time at this restaurant. It was very busy even though we had made a reservation ahead of a time. I proposed to my girl friend here... but the noise level was very high. The place is great don't get me wrong the staff helped with the filming of the proposal. I would recommend this place to friends.

Wonderful service! After a chat about drinks with the waitress, she surprised us with her favorite drink!

Some of the best food in Chicago. Cocktails were outrageously delicious and the server was exceptional. Well worth the money spent. Will return, probably often.

I love almost everything about Boka. The decor and food was outstanding. The only complaint is the servers can be a little more attentive and when describing the dishes they can speak a little slower instead of rushing through it. The food was great! The highlight was the shaved foie gras and the duck. I would definitely like to come back and I would recommend this place to my friends.

Spent an evening at Boka for their Valentine’s Day Eight Course Meal. While the food was exceptional, my ONLY complaint was that there was a lot of wait time between each course. We spent 3 hours here overall. Everything was quite enjoyable otherwise.

The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. One of our party thought the braised rib was slightly too salty and the kitchen very quickly took it back and brought out a new dish which was delicious.

Excellent service, atmosphere, and most importantly their food!

The only restaurant in Chicago, where I felt the need to come back and experience the dining all over again.

Highly recommend!

The meal was outstanding as always. We started off with the fluk appetizer. Laura had the bass, and I I had the venison. It was definitely the best venison I have ever had. Laura had the pear dessert which was heavenly.

This was my first experience dining at a Michelin star restaurant and it was the best meal of my life thus far. Every single bite of food I put into my mouth literally made my girlfriend and I just speechless. We only had 1 perfectly balanced cocktail, yet we felt drunk at the end of the meal. I believe this is due to the large amount of endorphins released from the amuse bouche to the dessert. Never have we tasted such perfect pairings of flavors. My mission is to come back here again for their full tasting course and visit their other restaurants in the Boka Restaurant Group.
