Absolute best deviled eggs in town! I’ve been here many times and the food never disappoints... flavors are really excellent. Brought a friend who had never been before and she loved it.

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!

As usual, we had an outstanding meal with friends at Bocado. We sat on the patio in the back which is always very pleasant. The salads were excellent and the burgers and steak tartar were their usual first quality.

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.

One of my favorite places to dine at the bar. The menu is very limited but since they have the best burger in town, I never order anything else. Nice cocktail and wine list. Annoying that you have to pay $2 (plus tip) for valet parking.

Beautiful space/decor. Service was outstanding but, unfortunately, wasn't impressed with the food. The risotto with scallops was average at best and the fettuccine with duck was not palatable due to the inclusion of roasted turnips which added way too much bitterness to the plate for me to consume more than a few bites. The crafted drinks were delicious but tiny for the $14 price. I don't plan on returning and far more enjoyed The Optimist, directly across the street, which has better food and drinks for the same price point.

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!

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!

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.
