Definitely a unique atmosphere and setting. The food was good but portions were a little small for the price. Good service, oh and there seems to be a dance club in the back?

the atmosphere is interesting. The girl painting with a bottle of Absolut vodka is unique. The food is decent, but expensive. The menu is strange. Very hard to navigate it. Service is good. The outdoor area is nice.

I think the overall experience was disorienting. The decor was a huge mix of different things from paintings to birdcages to a huge advertisement for vodka. The menu was equally confusing--the prices werent clear, the images were clouded with graphics (both funny and inappropriate at times), and the contents of the food was a mystery. I think some tabs would've... More

The interior reminded me of a 90s TV show - great! But the menu was a bit confusing, and the food not outstanding. A nice meal nonetheless.

The food here was not particularly tasty but the ambiance was great. The menu is a bit hard to read but fun. Definitely a place to take a group for some beers and appetizers!

This menu is bananas. It's incredibly hard to read, with pictures everywhere of things that have nothing to do with the food. The food was really good but definitely overpriced. Great location, though, and friendly wait staff.

Boca has a super-confusing menu with weird pictures. The food is mostly good, but seems overpriced for the quality.

This is a great, fun restaurant if you are looking for something in and around Plaza Foch. The 50-page menu offers something for everyone, the drinks are great, the decor is fun, and the waitstaff, while a little slow, speaks English.

The decor was so much fun. The whole thing is brightly colored with fun picture menus. They don't have much of a wine selection and their house wine is not good. The four of us chose to split dishes and most could pick out a favorite dish but we were not raving about the quality of the food...until dessert. We... More

This restaurant WAS good a year ago, now they've really given up.Granted their decor is interesting, now it's their excuse for charging you overpriced dishes of hot garbage. If you dine here, expect to be served very salty, very grease food and having to wait a long time to get it. An unpleasant experience overall.
