I went during restaurant week (which was a great deal) and was very impressed! The food was delicious - and I thought it had a great ambiance! Would definitely go back - also loved they took reservations!

I had the marinated olives, grilled salmon caesar salad, and eggplant drizzled with pesto. All were outstanding. Big menu requires lots of time to "digest". Very friendly service.

I really liked this place, and made a point to come restaurant week, despite needing to bring a baby and a kindergartener. We came early, 4:30, and other kids were there. Fun wine list. Restaurant week menu for 3 filled up 3 adults and a kid. We enjoyed the tapas. Having lived in Barcelona for a short while, and traveled... More

Bocado is the place we return to again and again. The food is innovative, the service is excellent, and sharing tapas with friends is fun. We're never disappointed, except that we can't try everything on the menu each time.

Have loved Bocado's food both times I have tried the restaurant. However, the first time we ate there, someone ordered for us which was great. The second time we were on our own and had a difficult time ordering simply because we couldn't read the menu due to the lighting. Won't stop me from eating there, just may need to... More

We went to Bocado Tapas Bar, in Worcester on a Monday evening with two friends. We had reservations for 6PM, but there were several empty tables at that time. The seats were positiones in a strange way, with two people on the same side and one to the right of them. The other sides were part of the corridor. We... More

We don't eat here that often, maybe 1-2 times a year, but like to sit at the bar and order tapas. There's a great bartender, Matt, who is very good at suggesting Spanish wines to go with the tapas. I've had a delicious tempranillo or two based on Matt's suggestion that I might not otherwise have tried. Parking is a... More

We went to Bocado to celebrate my birthday last night. When we arrived for our reservation (made a month before) our table was not ready. There was no room at the bar so we just stood in the entry way for 20 minutes. Finally, they pointed to a table in the bar area and said to sit there. It was... More

If you frequent this area you understand it is not known for its great array of restaurants. However this spot is fabulous and in fact it looks like well known. If you want to try this place, better make a reservation since the wait time can be up to 3 hours on busy nights like a Saturday. It sits in... More
