    Way way way too loud! Service was very slow and we waited 30 minutes for our bill after requesting it. Chicken was dry. Steak was good. Would not go back. And the 'restaurant week menu' added up to MORE than the menu a la carte prices. Duh!

    Went on a Saturday night for a friend's birthday, as a party of 5. Service was not attentive in the least bit (we saw her multiple times drinking wine at the bar as we waited on food, drinks, the check, etc) The atmosphere was fun at first, but the pulsing music made it difficult to hear anyone at the table, and the flashing blue light right in my eyes also made it hard to see. When food was brought to our table, we were yelled at multiple times since we did not have any idea what "MEDIUM WITH FRIES!!!!" meant since we all ordered different cuts of meat. Appetizers and shared meals were dropped without plates or steak knives. My husband and I ordered the "lava cake with Grand Marnier sauce" and were served a dry, layered chocolate cake without any explanation. Overall, will definitely not be back. We all expected more for a $120/person dinner. The empanadas were the only positive experience of the evening, so go to the bakery instead and save yourself the money!!

    The space was lovely and great for a date night. Our only criticism is that we had a reservation, and we had indicated that it was our anniversary. When we showed up, we said we had a reservation but our server did not make note of that (which meant that he did not review the notes that said it was a special date). We had thought we may have gotten a free slice of cake or something, but we never did. I am not sure open table acknowledged that we kept the reservation because we were never asked our name. The food and the drinks we really good. We will likely return.

    The food at Boca is always pretty strong, but I definitely feel that the service took away from that. We were a group of four, celebrating together. We ordered drinks and food all at once and were pretty disappointed that all of those items were brought to us at the same time…everything from empanadas to steak. In the past i would feel that a server should take responsibility for coursing that out. Our server also was MIA after the food came, so if you wanted another drink or something, you were unable to get it. It sucked too because he was very close by, seemingly learning from the bartender, but we were forgotten by him.

    I wish there was a different rating scale for our experience. We ended up leaving the restaurant after arriving because we found the music way to loud and knew we would have trouble holding a conversation in our group. I can’t rate the food although it looked nice. The waiter seemed unfazed when I told him the music was too loud and never offered to lower the volume.

    The online menu looked intriguing and we like to try new cuisines. Made a reservation and, as is our practice, arrived early to potentially wait at the bar and have drinks. We were seated early but it was almost 10 minutes until I waved at the host to get some drinks. We had been looking at the menus and decided to share 4 appetizers as we weren’t famished and wanted to taste several dishes. Eventually, a server came by to take our order. We explained we wanted appetizers, but could they put in the order for one at a time because we wanted a space between each. Unfortunately, all 4 arrived simultaneously. We ordered the empanada sampler, chicharron of ribeye, langostinos, and mejillones. The shrimp and mussels were good and the steak was adequate. The empanadas were disappointing because their flavors were not “special.” Fried dough filled with stuffing. Similar to an Applebees style appetizer. After we were finished, I had to wait almost 20 minutes to get the check. We won’t return.

    Ceviche smelled a little fishy and texture was off. The beef and pork were hammered ... cooked past "well done," dry and tough. The chicken was inedible it was SO dry. Expensive and not worth it by quality of food brought out. Service was poor as well. We continually had to get the attention of waiters for water refills, silverware after clearing 1st dishes, etc. We were given tiny app plates to share the parrillada, which made cutting the meat a super challenge as well. This was a disappointing dining experience altogether.

    Food was great and came out quickly after order. However, the music was loud enough that it was difficult to hold a conversation over. The music level increased a few times during the hour-ish that we were there as well. I hate to sound like an old person complaining about noise, but I had to talk quite loud for my date to hear me, and I had to ask her to repeat herself a few times because I missed something. We weren't pressured to leave, but our server did tell us they had needed our table for another reservation after we'd been there for close to an hour. Its a small restaurant so I understand. Clearly though its not a place where you could hang out for hours. Possibly at the bar instead of a booth?

    I made my reservation for 5 people when I arrived they had a table for 4 people the server wanted to seat 3 people in a place for 2 hello! She got upset when I told her that the table was too small! I really felt discriminated against and with Terrible service, you could not eat well at the table, the food for 5 people on small table omg!!!did not fit, it was a very bad experience, the server has zero kindness like the other waiters. Anyways, I will not return there.

    The food was amazing and delicious, but the service was not as good. We had too look around and try really hard to catch the waitress’ attention every-time we needed something. Also the drinks were not that good. Anyways, the steaks were pretty good and made the whole experience better!

    Cute place, nice staff, great drinks, very good food. If you are booking this place be forewarned- they don’t serve those cheesy Argentinian pizzas at this restaurant. Even though they are listed on the menu here in OpenTable. This should be corrected on the OpenTable menu.

    The place was so loud we couldn’t hear ourselves think, let alone talk to each other. The waiter couldn’t even hear our order correctly. This is NOT a place to go with friends and have a conversation, because you’ll be screaming at one another. It’s as loud as a night club. The only reprieve was when there was a break in between songs on the speakers. At one point , we asked our waiter if they could lower the music, but either he couldn’t hear me ask the favor, or didn’t think it was important enough to act on it. The food was ok, but the one downtown is so much better. We will never go back to this one

    We came here for SR week. Lively ambiance and energetic music (it is a restobar after all). Langostinos Al ajillo was my favorite dish. However was a bit disappointed with the Arroz con Mariscos as it was under seasoned and rice was a bit undercooked. The Churrasco came with a huge serving of fries (great value) and the meat was tender and flavorful. Service was great.
