It was my birthday but they did nothing to make it special. The service was terrible (they’d go 15 minutes without checking in on us- I would have ordered 2x the drinks if they’d checked on me more!!!) and the server just wasn’t happy to be there. Food was good but everything else was average. Service was bad enough for me not to return. Definitely don’t come on your birthday or for a special occasion.

Bocado is a great place to meet friends, share some small plates, and have a few drinks. Their dinner entree menu is short, only 5-6 items. Bocado is best known for their lobster roll and burger stack. My partner and I both had the burger and it was delicious - one of the best burgers in ATL. It's simple, only cheese and pickles (or lettuce, tomato, and "boss sauce" if you upgrade). The ambiance is quite modern with a nice porch. Inside gets quite loud as it is a small space with hard surfaces everywhere. Great spot for a date but keep in mind the noise level and the limited menu.

I have been to Bocado many times and generally have the same thing for lunch. The sandwich with cauliflower was okay (could not place my finger on what was missing in the flavor) but was just not the same. The herbed fries were limp, and the sauce that comes with the fries lacked seasoning.

Note - I went on a Monday, and there were only a few people there. I am used to it being much busier.

I won’t give up on Bocado, but will wait a long while before going back again. I will also check the reviews.

Glad we made it back to Bocado....everything about our evening out on 9/15 was outstanding, from the excellent service (Sarah was VERY attentive!), food, and great outdoor dining. It’s a drive for us, so it was only our second time dining with them, but when we went a few years ago, we enjoyed it so much that we purchased a gift card for friends. This second time here did not disappointment. Which there was a Bocado in East Cobb!

Food, service, and vibe at Bocado is fantastic. It's a little too loud and a bit pricey, but I would say that's more a sign that there are lots of people that see value in this place. Absolutely recommend.

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.

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.
