This is a good tapa bar and we will go back. Try the strawberry and definitely the Cod. The prawns were authentic and were well done. They dropped a star on the Pork Belly. It was a little too much frying it and overcooking it didn't help. Will go back for the Cod.

Met friends here just for drinks, but saw a lot of food coming out and it looked really good. Will be returning for food for sure. Only four stars because the Basque cider (although the best cider I've ever had) comes in a small "traditional" glass.

The six of us came at the dinner hour and found seating on the main center table without a wait. The small restaurant was packed with people and VERY NOISY. Conversation was loud, but fun. We ordered a wide variety of dishes and all were fresh and delicious. The service was prompt, not rushed, and with just the right mix... More

5his was our first visit. What delightful outing at the Boca restaurant. The food servings are huge, with very good favor, and are served with some real precision. Once our order was taken everything was served very timely. Good server attention. Every chance we getthis will be a place for us to eat dinner while in the city.

I have eaten tapas in Madrid, Sevilla, San Sebastián, Barcelona, New York, Boston, San Diego and Santa Fe. This restaurant ranks with some of the best in these cities. Fresh, local squid, clams, fish are the best things to order here, although the vegetarian dishes are splendid as well. The restaurant is small, cozy and packed with happy diners. I... More

I have a few out-of-town girlfriends visiting earlier this month, and this restaurant happen to have a deal that I couldn't resist. They don't take reservation but six of us were seated immediately and the wait staff was very patient explaining the menu to us. We tried the staff's recommendation, and everything is delicious - especially the chicken liver mousse,... More

Many people recommended this restaurant, but it doesn't seem to live up to its reputation. The food is not bad, but I have eaten in better tapas restaurants in the US and overseas. Even in San Francisco you can go to Zarzuela instead.

Love this place! First time here, and there was little or nothing to dislike. The tapas plates were flavorful & distinct, the service was friendly & efficient without being annoying, and the ambiance rivaled anything we experienced in Spain. The prices were neither cheap nor exorbitant ($5 for a good draft beer in a huge glass); with one clean unisex... More

Our group of 6 enjoyed tasting and sharing a lot of small plates. They had a great variety of delicious foods -- halibut ceviche, seasonal mushrooms, shrimp beets, corn salad, beef tongue and lots more. Desserts were great too -- crème brulee, chocolate cake. It was a fun place but small. The staff was helpful and attentive. The unisex bathroom... More

Enjoyed this hidden dining location next door to the Transamerica Pyramid. Tapas were delicious, flavors were very distinct and vivid, the plate size was just right, served in style. Speaking of style, the atmosphere is modern, little candles on red brick walls, dark wooden furniture, very clean. Their wine selection is limited, but the wines are very good. Try it.... More
