Excellent Dining...But Book in Advance

First time visit to Cincinnati and Boca. Without a reservation, however, on a busy Saturday night, our party of four was seated in the middle of a long communal table.

Boca is the sister restaurant to Sotto and Nada. Boca serves new age Italian fair. No red sauce here. They have their menu split so you can get half size taster portions or full portions. Nice touch. Menu limited to a certain extant, but all choices are fantastic. We had the poached lobster and cod dinners. Daughter has the Boca... More

Boca never fails to delight. Excellent menu but a friendly and fun atmosphere. Different rooms in the restaurant have different look and feel. We sat this time in the part that maintains the atmosphere of the old Maisonnette, but with a little updating. Service was excellent (they even moved us away from the very loud gentleman sitting at the next... More

Last night We happened upon Boca in downtown Cincinnati. It was a Saturday night fairly early but we did not have reservations. We had just gotten out of a three day seminar and live in Denver. Although we couldn't eat in their dining room; they graciously offered us a table of three in their beautiful bar area. The space both... More

I cannot eat gluten per Drs orders and I called ahead of our reservation to see if they had gluten free options. To my surprise they had a separate gluten free menu! Our waitress was awesome in helping make dish choices. Tartare and risotto were both delicious. Beautiful restaurant and excellent service.

I had eaten years ago at the original BOCA when my sister-in-law and brother-in-law took us there and it was good and I will never forget the Brussels sprout appetizer. Well, the new BOCA certainly gorgeous and way different in location and atmosphere is in the old Maisonnette and the food and service are outstanding. Try it for yourself, they... More

Being one of Cincinnati's most upscale and most expensive restaurants, Boca is the best of the best. Love the food and will be having a venue party there.

Incredible table to have dinner in Cincinnati. One of the place in the world I ever ate. I would always recommend this place as soon someone arrives close to Cincinnati. My favorite remains scallops and brown butter and truffle oil Brussels sprouts.

I stopped by for dinner one night when I was alone. They did not have tables available, but I took a bar sit by the open kitchen and enjoyed both the food, seeing how it is being done and a chat with the cooks. The meal quality was excellent. The service was not super helpful (i.e. they did not manage... More

Went here for a work dinner and so glad I did. First of all, it's a beautiful restaurant - just gorgeous. The food was delicious. I had the beet salad - they actually made little raviolis with beet slices and goat cheese - great idea and yummy. Then I had the corn pasta ravioli with truffles - amazing. Lastly I... More
