Chef David Falk has a wonderfully inspired restaurant. Everything is "right" about Boca: the changing menu that highlights local and in season ingredients; the intelligent wine list that features many small production wines and good values; the discreet service; and the atmosphere. I have dined here several times and only wish I lived in Cincinnati so I could dine at... More

Last week i had the pleasure of having a business dinner at Boca. Great menu and beautiful dining area. Try to book a table upstairs. Each of my guests ordered different items and everyone was impressed. I had the branzino and was very happy with the preparation because it was simple and not drenched in sauce. The portions are not... More

You are met at the door by the smell of a wood fired oven. We sat in the bar area and it was beautiful and comfortable. The menu only has a few selections so we tried a few things different. The Brussels sprout appetizer was in credible. The grilled caesar was perfect and the seafood pasta dish was spicy and... More

My wife and I showed up at 8:15pm on a Saturday without a reservation. Of course there was not a table available, but they did offer us seats at the counter which overlooks the kitchen. Neither of us knows much about the inner workings of a fine restaurant, so this was both an impressive and enlightening experience. The chefs interacted... More

In Cincinnati for the AP Reading and one of the nights is a "dine out". Our group regularly goes to The Rookwood on Mt. Adams, but they close Mondays, so a new place had to be found. Picked Boca from the inf. on their web site. While the server and food was truly excellent, if one is not careful the... More

Visited the new Boca for the first time (I had been to the old one many times). The restaurant itself is a huge upgrade over the previous facility. It is much modern with several unique seating areas that all fit together. It was a little on the noisy side but it wasn't too bad. The food is essentially the same... More

Let's face it, Cincinnati is not exactly known as a culinary destination. That being said, Boca really brings it. From the decor, to the service, to the food, this is a world class restaurant that would fit in, in Paris, NYC, wherever. The wine list is extensive and pretty reasonably priced with by the glass options starting at $8. The... More

Only restaurant I've been to in Cinci, but perfect in every way. Very nice decor, great service, but above all, food was incredible. Amazing tuna tartare appetizer, perfect desserts and amazing fish as main. Not one complaint, would go back in a heartbeat.
