My family and I have eaten at Bocado many, many times over the past several years. Their food never disappoints, and our recent meal at Bocado was just as good - maybe better - than our first meal there soon after the restaurant opened in Atlanta. While the restaurant is most known for their hamburger, we usually choose other items on the menu. The trout and chicken dishes are outstanding. I highly recommend Bocado.

The menu consisted of about 6 entrees. The portions were tiny and the burgers were good but absolutely nothing special. The bill was over $100 and we left hungry (4 adults). Definitely not worth it. And the service was also lacking despite the place being at 50% capacity.

Excellent fish and appetizers. Service very good. The server didn't charge us for appetizers because she took a little while to get to our table, but it was not necessary to do that. The only negative is it is a little too loud for me.

The food and service was great! Will made our New Years experience very memorable, thank you! We will be back! Things to try.. the burger, deviled eggs( add the caviar), and the broccoli and lentil dish. The cocktail list was pretty special too! Just a great experience!

This is now my 5th time coming to Bocado and I am in love even more. The ombiance, the food, the service from the minute you step out of the car to the end of the meal was absolutely exceptional and most importantly consistent. Thank you to the chef and the team for creating a space with great food and great vibes.

We had a wonderful experience. My husband is still talking about the burger and the deviled eggs were superb. I am a vegetarian, and the chef put together an outstanding vegetable plate for me. So, if some people are turned off because there are no vegetarian options on the menu, don't be! The vegetable plate was outstanding.

Great food and experience but our table was RIGHT on top of another couple- we basically had a double date! The tables are way too stuffed in so waiters kept bumping into me. Burger is amazing though so worth it.

Went to BOCADO after attending a football game downtown. Weather was cool and the indoors seemed noisy. We sat outside next to a portable heater which made for a lovely evening. To top it off, the custom-tailored gin drinks were matched by the tasty, filling small plates. Hope to visit again soon.

The food took forever!!
I got a burger as did most everyone at our table. It was delish as were
The fries. I wish I knew before I ate the fries that they put melted butter on top of them.
The service was good, just took way too long to get the food.

Foodwise-One of the most enjoyable meals we've ever had here. Once a table full of yelling young women left, the noise level got down to a point we could hear each other. Put plastic tips on the chairs so they don't make so much noise and invest in a little noise reduction material for the dining room. One larger group can obliterate conversation for everyone else. The food is great. Service is very good. The noise level needs to come down.

Good food, although I got horrible indigestion from the Sunchokes. Limited menu. However, the ambience and service was great. The food was good, however, we would have liked a broader menu. If you have digestive issues, stay away from sunchokes.

In a great spot for a late night bite to eat. Wonderful service. The burger was great and used all fresh ingredients. If you like garlic I would recommend the garlic fries. The braised pork & sweet potato appetizer was pretty good as well. Parking was not a hassle because there is valet. There is a $3 charge plus the tip for valet.

We love to go to Bocado. Their snack plate is one of my favorites and has the most fantastic pimento cheese and trout spread. Then although the burger is wonderful I have to say my favorite items are usually the fresh vegetables. Their field peas with radishes and cheese is absolutely wonderful. I've never had a cocktail there that I did not love. A favorite!

Wow!!!

I’m AMAZED at this place. This was my first time dinning here I googled it due to me riding by everyday as I head to gym for personal training and it his place is always packed out and seem very busy so I figured the food and drinks were awesome. Went there for a casual outting with a friend and I was shocked and the food, atmosphere, drinks and staff EVERYTHING was great. I will be definitely becoming back here.
