Amazing to find an upscale restaurant of this caliber in downtown Worcester. This is what you would expect in Boston, New York or LA. It's great to see Worcester's resurgence and getting great food. We had the Tapas and Sangria. Recommended for anyone who enjoys great Tapas. We are tremendous fans of Dali in Somerville and must say this is... More

We had a great visit. Food was very good. We loved the berry sangria. I didnt love the atmosphere, but it wasn't bad. We will definitely come again.

Bocado continues to be a fun stop for Tapas dinner. We had a couple of their signature drinks to start things off. We had the dinner for two starting with delicious duck and smoked trout. For Tapas we had rabbit, bacon wrapped scallops, lollipop lamb chops, and Ahi tuna. They were all amazing. We ordered an excellent bottle of wine... More

The food here is literally to die for; the menu boasts fantastic variety (6 or 7 types of meat, and plenty of vegetarian options as well). The two must haves are the fried goat cheese and their sangria. The only downfall is that it can get pricey if you're like me and want to try everything on the menu. Service... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Worcester and is enjoyed by a diverse clientele undoubtedly due to the quality of the food and the fun atmosphere. There are always a handful of special tapas on the menu. Some of the best standbys include the lollipop lamb chops, the veal stuffed pequillo peppers and the fried goat cheese platters... More

I brought my mother there for mothers day. For the two of us it cost me $40. All together we ordered one cheese and four tapas. We got the fried goat cheese. I still dream about this! Perfectly crispy on the outside and you can spread it onto bread they give you with nuts, peppers, or a fruit spread. Your... More

We had reservations for a milestone birthday. It's really loud, so hard to have a conversation. And not all chairs have backs, which can be problematic for some. The food was good, but though we had two waiters, there were at least two dishes at two different intervals that we ordered that we had to remind the waiters about. The... More

We enjoy Bocado and the food is great. My wife and I have spent a lot of time in Spain and Latin America. We love tapas and enjoy that we don't have to go all the way to Boston to enjoy them. Here at Bocado, we generally stay away from the nouveau spin menu items and prefer the more traditional... More

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.
