    Went on a Saturday and took advantage of their expansive brunch menu, choice of one complimentary Bellini or mimosa. Very attentive staff.

    Flatbread with prosciutto & fig jam was interesting but the prosciutto needed more curing. Salmon ordered medium came well done. Service was friendly but slow.

    Bocado has a good menu - something for anyone & the quality of the food is excellent. The crabmeat burger was very tasty & had lots of crabmeat. The pear salad was fresh & light and the beer on-tap was a nice cold large glass! Perfect for a hot & humid night!

    Always a great experience at Bocado whether it's brunch or dinner. I had the avocado & poached eggs and my friend had the classic eggs benedict with mimosa's. The restaurant doesn't serve liquor so if you're looking for a bloody mary or aperol spritz, you'll have to go elsewhere since they only serve beer & wine.

    I waited 45 minutes for my omelette. It was tasteless. I was very disappointed. I was at the restaurant with two other woman and asked for separate checks. When it arrived it was one check for the total amount. We then had to wait for it to be redone. Lunch was a unpleasant experience.

    The service was good, but food came out slowly. The steak was excessively saltly, the hummus was flavorless, and the brussel sprouts were undercooked.

    Always exciting apps, I had the tasty grilled avocado/corn/cilantro starter and a very nice Cab from their full wine-by-the-glass list. Partner had salmon dinner cooked to his specifications, with a surprisingly good kale side.''lovely passion fruit sliver for dessert. Bocado never disappoints, breakfast lunch dinner or event.

    Would never go back: we waited an Hour for our food. Waitress keep apologizing but to no avail was our food delivered. One hour is a bit much to wait in any restaurant. They did offer us free dessert but at that point, we declined . Food was just ok, too many other good restaurants in New York.
