I just had dinner at this beautiful restaurant tonight and I couldn't wait to review it. The ambiance was spectacular; it really is a gorgeous restaurant. The entire staff was pleasant and friendly. And the food was delicious--we started with the smelt, which was great. I got the squid ink risotto with chorizo, which was the best meal I've had... More

We chose this place because of a lobster pasta dish they displayed on the outside menu. It has the feel and look of a serious wine bar/restaurant, and we were not disappointed. The food menu had a limited number of items, but all interesting enough to make it hard to decide. Our appetizers were "black ham" (transcendent ham taste) and... More

I keep coming back to Bocata and Barroco - personally I think Barroco is just one step better, but my most recent dinner at Bocata was awesome. The only complaint was that I allowed my bar tab to get out of hand as was tempted by wines and cognacs. Lovingly and attentively prepared dishes, featuring high quality local ingredients, and...

We had such a wonderful dinner the first night of our vacation sitting at the small bar -- wonderful food, fun service -- that we decided to book our last night's dinner here as well after traveling to Quebec City and Baie-Saint-Paul for a few days. Unfortunately, our second visit was a bit of a disaster. This is the first... More

We arrived on a cold night looking for a restaurant-lost and hungry. We found our way into this beautiful little gem. Friendly and smart staff, serving gorgeous wine pairings with a menu full of really great food. Lobster carbarnero, fennel and salmon salad, wild mushrooms, cheese and oh, bread-perfect bread. Let's all admit how heavenly great bread makes a meal... More

My husband and I loved our dining experience at Bocata. The waiter was extremely informative about the food and wines and provided us with top notch service. The risotto was one of the best I had ever had! Don't forget to leave room for the delicious chocolate cake dessert! We shall be back :)

I had dinner here with my boyfriend on a Saturday night and we both loved the place. As soon as we stepped into the restaurant we were greeted by a friendly waiter and surrounded by a cozy atmosphere. The restaurant has a large selection of wines which was a bit overwhelming for me since I'm not a wine connoisseur but... More

Four of us had dinner on a Thursday night. The welcome was warm and the restaurant was full. stone walls, clever lighting and a bit of a squeeze. The menu was short, very comforting in a small restaurant. We started with oysters with a mignonette sauce, delicious, then sea smelts, the portions of which were quite small but perfectly cooked,...

I have been to Bocata many times before and always enjoyed the food and the wine there until recently I went back again in September 20 2013 with my boyfriend. We didn't reserve the table but lucky we got the table right away. The starter of charcuteries was great but the main course of risotto with wild mushroom and braised... More

Lovely atmosphere with many candles and a beautiful stone wall. Service was friendly but spotty. Salads and starters came in a timely fashion but we had to wait a long time for the main course. Salads were greens with a few cherry tomatoes. The smelts were delicious. Three people ordered the sea bass and one the veal. The menu says... More
