Food was great and our service was perfect. It’s great for a pre-theater dinner. We easily hopped over to Actors Express afterwards.

AMAZING food & service. Specialty drinks made to perfection. Definitely the best burger. Bread budding was heavenly. Manager (Hemant) was professional, energetic and provided great service. This was our first visit. We googled “best burgers in Atlanta” and Bocado was recommended. Definitely NOT disappointed.

The food and service were amazing! It was a wonderful farm to table experience. Everything was delicious and reasonably priced. The restaurant wasn’t crowded and the ambience was nice. My only complaint would be parking- it’s difficult to get into their lot, and then they charge $2 for valet (plus tip) without letting you know ahead of time. We’ll be back for sure though!

Everything about my dinner at Bocado was above and beyond expectation. The shrimp and grits were to DIE for. Super savory and flavorful. The steam coming off of my burger was what dreams are made of. The steak was very tender. To top it off, the almond bread pudding with vanilla gelato was absolutely amazing - not too sweet but rich enough to satiate your sweet tooth. 5/5 would recommend. Went for an early dinner on a Monday so it was not busy at all so I can't attest to the noise level.

We went there on a Saturday for lunch and the place was empty. I have been to this place many times and every time it’s just a little bit worse. This place has so much potential but unfortunately they rely too much on their burger.

the food was excellent, the environment was welcoming and enjoyable. one thing that was interesting about the service was that the bar and restaurant were not real busy which would make you believe that service would be very quick, strangely with the slow atmosphere in the place, at times the service too was slow.
Overall very good experience, friendly staff and very good food.

The valet service was "full" so we had to park down the street at a parking deck near the Optimist. Other than that, the food was amazing and the service was excellent.

Food looked good and was tasty, a bit pricy for portion size (in my opinion), but nonetheless very good. Our server was fabulous....very knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. Plus she had 14 pens just in case...she was Great! Thanks for a nice evening.

Always solid. Ate at bar, John was a terrific host and the burger stack lived up to its reputation as one of the best, if not THE best, burgers in the ATL. A very nice side salad and Rioja perfect accompaniments. Dining area is recently very nicely updated.

Honestly the food is excellent, I had the lobster roll and my gf ordered the fish. However, our waitress was TERRIBLY SLOW. The restaurant was not even busy so not sure what the issue was. Cost them two stars, I’ll be back but will ask for a different waitress if I see her again.

We love Bocado for the delicious food and would still recommend .... but the service was sub par even with the reservation and a special note for it being a birthday. It was slow, took forever to get drinks and food even when there were only two other tables of people in the restaurant. Without notice even after I asked if it was ok, we were charged $15 extra just because we brought our own birthday cake. If I would’ve known that I would not of brought the cake inside the restaurant. Disappointed to say the least.

While the food was stellar, the service was disappointingly poor.

Food — We ordered the deviled eggs, crab fritters, garlic herb fries and lobsters rolls. Everything was very flavorful and filling. For drinks, we got some kind of peach old fashioned and what I think was called the Tony’s smash. Can’t remember and menu chances frequently so I was unsuccessful looking them up. The OF was very strong but okay and the other was tasty.

Service — We dealt with about 5 different severs throughout the evening, which would’ve been fine if any of them actually knew what the hell was going on. Entree came out first, then we were asked if we wanted appetizers (which we ordered right then). About 10 mins later a server came back and said they hadn’t even put the app orders in. Some guy who seemed to be some sort of manager checked on patrons throughout the night but was far more friendly with some tables than others. And although the bar was backed up, we got the drinks in a decent amount of time.

After three attempts they could not get my order right. My wife’s dish was too cold to eat and I found a hair in my French fries. The Valet service wants your phone number and email just to park your car. I have been to this restaurant many times but this experience was so bad I will never go back.

The food was delicious, as always. My previous couple times there, service had been very frustrating. This time, however, there were no significant problems. Everything was good. My only disappointment was that we could not get outside seating, despite reserving it, because of a private event.
