Recently went here again, this time as a party of 6. There is no doubt that the atmosphere and service continue to be excellent and it is a fine place for a special evening. The problem this time was that all but one of our different entrees was ridiculously over salted. My daughter had to send hers back, the rest... More

I went to Boca with a large group. The service was very friendly and attentive; they didn't get everything right the first time, but were quick to fix small mistakes. The food was completely to die for. The brussels sprouts were caramelized to dark-brown perfection, served with microgreens and generous shavings of an excellent Parmesan; I chose to have mine...

Boca's decor is warm, inviting and kind of funky. The kitchen seems to be run by a drill seargent, the food is excellent, and the service aims to please. I dined alone at Boca while traveling for business, and was seated on a comfy little couch/bench sort of thing, facing out toward the restaurant floor, with a view to my... More

My last visit was the best ever. The service is beyond compare. We had a second flor table with an amazing view. I highly recommend it. The white truffles are in season and are shaved to perfection by the General manager Barron. The wine has no superiors in the midwest. AS good as any restaurant in NYC, Paris or London.

I have dined at Boca on several occasions and have always had a lovely dinner. My favorite place to sit in the restaurant is at the Kitchen Table where you can observe the preparation of your food and inquire as to which entrée is the best that night. I have ordered dishes that I may have never thought of trying... More

I love everything at Boca. From the restaurant setting to its food, the ambience is nice and calm. It's great place to dining with family and couples. Food is spectacular!! However, we think dessert is a bit too sweet.

I recently held a business dinner here for seven guests. We were seating in a lovely private room on the second floor, with beautiful chandeliers and a fireplace. Our waitress, Carrie, was very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable about the entire menu. We started off with a few orders of the caramelized brussles sprouts and pommes soufflées. If you are going... More

Dined at Boca for our wedding anniversary. Service was very good, but the server confessed that "it's great to work at Boca where everyone is happy with the food." Most entrees come in two sizes, small portion and full portion. We opted to get small portions so we could try more things and save room for dessert. I had small... More

Had a late reservation on Friday night. Had a drink at the bar to start and was seated at 9:30. The decor was very cool and the showpiece is the chandelier. Massive and a conversation piece. The menu is limited but the the nice thing about Boca is that you can order 1/2 portions that allows you to have 3... More

Great food, great atmosphere, excellent service. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. Small points - the fish dishes could have been a bit hotter and the risotto had a bit too much salt for my taste. The desserts were delicious, but a little bit pricey.
