My family (a party of ten) and I visited last weekend and found this place wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was plentiful and delicious.

I cannot understand the high rating for this over-priced restaurant that serves only very mediocre food. The restaurant scene in Worcester must really be suffering for this place to rise so high in the rankings. Our server was just awful - and I'm usually pretty immune to bad service. Plates and drinks were removed before we were even done and... More

Both my friend and I talked about our previous vacations In Spain and the great meals we had there. Bocado reminded us of that same experience. Great food , music and service.

The food is decent. You can expect things to take longer than at most restaurants even by tapas style type restaurants. If I was to come here again I would get the shrimp burger. That was pretty good. 1 star off for taking too long to refill waters and for not bringing the bread out first rather than the other... More

The Niche Group has a set of amazing restaurants in Worcester, but my favorite has to be Bocado. The tapas is a real treat. The rosemary tomato bread and lamp lollipops are particular favorites, although every month brings new specials to try. They also have an excellent wine list of affordable wines that will bring a smile to your face.... More

our server Shannon gave us great recommendations for food and wine. The pork meatballs were a tiny bit salty but very tasty. The cheese tapas recommended by Shannon was also top notch. The location is easy to find off of 290. Ultimately this was a very relaxing experience thanks to the great service provided by Shannon. I will definitely return... More

Always a favorite of ours; we have been to Bocado many times. The kids are addicted to the goal cheese fritters, with good reason. Great lively crowd and wonderful tapas. The service is always great as well. I've yet to try anything I didn't love. Not cheap, but the food is great!

We have visited the place a few times, and we like the tapas style selections. The place is very small, but you can usually find a little corner in the bar while your table is getting ready. It's a fin place to visit with friends and share the good selection of dishes they have.
