Great service and food! The ambiance was welcoming and relatively quiet. The waiter was friendly, timely and knowledgeable. The food was cooked to near perfection. Highly recommended.

Too expensive for what It is! They also crammed everyone together at tables side by side except for a few chosen people that got to sit in the large booths. The valet area not covered so my husband was drenched. Needless to say not a great experience.

I've been here so many times. It's always good. Reliably wonderful service. I usually opt for their burger (westside style with herb fries) - it's pretty hard to pass up!

The burger was as I was told the best OVERALL burger I've had in Atlanta! I also washed it down what I believe the drink was call gritty business, another amazing niche they have at this location. Oberall, very well satisfied!

Excellent food, extremely slow service. If you don’t mind not being taken care of then please visit this place. The food and drinks are really good. It very noisy there I think just because how open it is. The service could use an upgrade

Best fries I have ever had! I got the Bocado burger (Westside Style) with garlic fries. Cannot recommend this enough! Burger was one of the best I've had too. Valet is a bit ridiculous since I walked past my car to get to the valet stand, but that's a minor nuisance. Would highly recommend dining here!

This was my third time at Bocado. Service was a little sluggish, and my side of fries was a bunch of smaller pieces rather than the larger, more normal fries my table mates got. Overall, still was an enjoyable meal

Came here a few months ago and really enjoyed it. Came back for my wife’s birthday and was disappointed. Service was good. Vibe still good but the food was just not up to what it was before. The restaurant has certainly become much busier and that is translating into less time to prepare patrons entrees. Of the 6 of us for dinner 5 didn’t finish their meals. Really disappointed to bring my wife and guests here as the food just didn’t match the final bill.

As usual, Bocado was just what we were wanting for dinner. Perfect choice for pre-concert dining. We shared the snack plate. They have switched out olives for pickles, so now its perfect! We also shared the delicious burger. A couple of wonderful cocktails rounded out the meal.

First time at Bocado, picked it because of proximity to Actor's Express theatre, good reviews, and 2 "$" in OpenTable listing. Definitely not $ pricing at restaurant, but food was very good. As another reviewer commented, very noisy / hard to have intimate conversation as there is nothing to absorb sound on floor, walls, or ceiling. Roads in the area will wreck your vehicle.

The food was tasty but it took about an hour for us to get our food after we placed our orders. It was a busy Friday night but it should not take that long. Neither the waiter nor the manager came by with any explanation about why things were taking so long.

It was my first visit, though my husband had been before. I was not disappointed by spending Valentine's Day at BOCADO, where we shared duck fettuccine, mussels, crab cakes, a bottle of wine, and a delightful chocolate mousse to top it off. 5/5 I'd go back.

We love Bocado and are frequent visitors, but our last experience there this weekend was not enjoyable. It took forever for our food to come (the manager did let us know it was running behind but that was after we had already been waiting for someone to stop by our table), the kitchen was flooding near the bathroom, and the server laughed at us when we told her we weren't happy about the 30+ minutes for our entrees to arrive. I think we will stick with sitting at the bar when we go to Bocado in the future.

They were slammed with large parties and as a result we waited way too long for our food, which, when it came, came all at once rather than paced at all. A bit of kitchen mismanagement. But the food itself was delicious as usual.

We made reservations for 7:30pm - they ran really late, we didn't sit down til 9:30pm but they took care of all our drinks and our dinner. They certainly made up for the wait and the service was excellent. I am not sure what happened that evening but they made up 100% over for their lateness.

We had a reservation for 7:00 and we were not seated until 8:00. We kept being reassured that our table would be ready any minute, which is what kept us hanging around. The restaurant itself is so noisy that you can only talk to the person sitting closest to you. The food is fine, nothing spectacular. We will not be going back and I cannot recommend this restaurant.
