Wonderful evening out. The decor and layout had a true & trendy, downtown feel. Cannot say enough about our excellent server, David. Beyond attentive, informative but did not overwhelm. He was helpful and honest with his suggestions. The signature Pommes Souflees were wonderful. David explained the story behind this treat. The beet salad was one of the best we have... More

By far one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at. Atmosphere, service, food all excellent. Don't miss the grilled romaine and the scallops w caramelized Brussels sprouts.

We have eaten here about 10 times now, it is just great. The ambiance is fabulous, the food terrific, price is reasonable, and service is consistently good. This is in the top 2 restaurants in Cincinnati for a special night out. But, does not have to be just a destination restaurant since the prices are reasonable and you dont have... More

While in Cincinnati on business, my colleagues and I visited Boca via recommendation. The restaurant was visually stimulating; providing an ambiance of class and sophistication. The service was exceptional and the dinner menu intrigued robust curiosity. For starters, we (party of four) shared the Blue Oven Bad Boy Bread, Pommes Soufflées and Short Rib Tartare “Primavera” which was outstanding. Our... More

One of our family's favorite places to dine...anywhere. The food is always delicious and the vibe and atmosphere are fantastic. The prices are not for the faint of heart. We really love this place!

We dined at Boca last Friday night as a last minute birthday dinner. We were seated on the 2nd level. Let me first start by saying the decor and the layout of Boca is awesome. We did the oysters for and appetizer and they were amazing. For dinner I did the chicken dish on the menu and it was one... More

Boca has gone through a metamorphosis. Originally, a wonderful, neighborhood Italian restaurant catering primarily to suburban, well to do folks, David Falk has upped the heat and created "hot," "hot," "hot," in the former Maisonette space. Taking on the ghostly aura of Maisonette in Cincinnati is difficult enough, but Falk has created "David's Corner," running three top Cincinnati restaurants adjacent... More

$17 for one scallop, servings were so small it is easy to leave hungry after spending $100. Food is good but not worth it. Server was inattentive, we assume because we weren't drinking alcohol. I will not return.

We had fabulous service and food with no reservation on a Saturday night. (Card from Hilton concierge helped I'm sure) Love the option of tasting portion of full portion of the entrees, which I did. Branzino was perfectly cooked and the gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce was delicious, though I don't think I would have those together again; the tastes were... More
