Holly was our server. She was absolutely amazing as was the food! My husband and I were VERY impressed, and we will definitely be back.

Bocado consistently serves excellent food with a limited menu that offers dishes to delight all food types. The dessert menu is limited but after a satisfying meal, perhaps choices should be limited.

Bocada has literally never let me down when it comes to the food. As a vegetarian, I always find an unusually large selection of delicious and interesting dishes. Completely satisfying. On this particular occasion we had what was probably a new or inexperienced server who was less than attentive. The rest of the staff was willing to jump in when requested, however, so kudos to them.

Our food was wonderful as always, but the service was terrible. It has been a while since we have been to Bocado, but it is one of my husband's favorites. The food was exceptional as always; so happy to see the watermelon salad on the menu! Service has definitely gone downhill. Our server, Tyler or Taylor I believe, was very slow. Our water glasses sat empty most of the night, and he never cleared our plates throughout dinner. Some of his descriptions of the menu items seemed off as well. We were thoroughly unimpressed. I think we'll give Bocado some time to regroup before we revisit or maybe stick to take out.

They open at 5:30 and had “sold out” of the Lobster Roll by 7. We opted for the burger. It was average at best. Garlic herb fries were cold and service was mediocre. We had to ask for everything 2-3 times. Sorry I can’t tell you her name because she never identified herself. I feel bad I recommended this spot.

Used to love bocado and it has really gone downhill. Service is unbearably slow and the burgers just aren't what they used to be. Really sad- they were my fav.

Bocado has always been one of my favorite places to eat lunch, but this was my first time for dinner. It didn't disappoint! The food was great, as always. And the service was even better! Our server was delightful, knowledgeable and attentive.

We visited Bocado for a burger and I must say the burgers and fries complimented each other perfectly. The fries a memorable because they figured out how to infuse Butter in the cooking of the fry which was a hit in my mind. My burger was a little overcooked but still tasty. We will go back at some point for sure and I will encourage my friends to try. Their Bourbon collection was weak, hey could beef up the bar to accommodate whiskey drinkers.

Excellent service and fresh farm to table food. Went here for a date before we went to a show at the fox and the food and drinks all came out quickly. Waiters were friendly and knowledgeable about the food, which was very fresh and great portion sizes (not too small but not too big).

The staff here accommodated us beyond expectations. We were running late from our daughter's high school graduation, and had family in tow (including a 4 year old and a newborn). Our reservations were initially for 8:30, but the ceremony didn't end until 8:30 and getting out of the venue took a long time. However, the restaurant completely understood, kept calling me to make sure we were OK and assured us that they would keep the table for us. In fact, we didn't arrive until 9:40 - twenty minutes before closing. They told me that the kitchen was closing at 10, but they would still be able to get us served if we sort of knew what we wanted. We ordered, and the burgers were amazing. Not only that, they crafted something special for the 4 year old, and were super attentive to us.

I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant just based on their attitude of going above and beyond. Not to mention the food is great!

Most of our group came to try the burger. Very good burger for the price. Everything else on the menu is a bit pricey. I would not recommend the mussels. I had the risotto scallops which was delicious. Drinks are way overpriced and are quite small. Overall a good experience.

I easily made the reservation through Open Table and we were seated immediately upon arrival. I had listed in the special instructions that we wanted to dine “al fresco” and that was honored as well. Service and food were perfect. A great overall experience.

We enjoyed dinner on a Wednesday night. It was warm out, so we sat on the patio, which I definitely prefer since the acoustics inside aren’t very good. Service was attentive and our sever was welcoming. We enjoyed our entrees, but passed on dessert- only three options which didn’t interest us. This is a restaurant that will stay on my rotation for casual date nights.
