Treated like a rock star

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... read more

BOCA is a great looking resto - we where really excited to try it. When we went there it was full - we left - and the Host at the door ran down the street to get us! But after this service was down hill. The food was all very good - excellent - for sure premium priced. They also... More

Boca is a beautiful place there is no questions there! The food on the other hand is just ok. Nothing was memorable about it except the bill! I don't mind spending top $ on a dinner, but the presentation and amount of food for the price was crazy expensive! I ordered the full-size portion of the Seafood Risotto which looked... More

Birthday dinner in one of the private rooms on a Saturday evening. I realize it is hard to take care of 14 people, but just the same, at these prices the staff should handle it and the food, regardless of the party size, should be excellent. It was not. To start, on a Saturday evening, they are out of their... More

We made reservations about 2 weeks before going and the only time we could get in on Saturday was 9:30. We showed up at 9:30 and had to wait another 15 minutes to get a table. The bar service was not friendly, but the drinks were good. Dinner was really good, but the portions were extremely small and very expensive.... More

My Boyfriend and I had an early dinner here and I must say everything was excellent. The Oysters Rockefeller were the best I think I have ever had and the Scallops were cooked perfectly. I like that they did the option of small plates for the main entrée so you cloud try more things if you wanted. We split the... More

The portions are tiny .. I'm talking 3-4 bites on a plate. You are encouraged to order a dish from each section ( appetizer... More

Great evening out on a very cold night. Wait Staff were very friendly and helpful. Small plates a plus -gives you opportunity to experience amazing food. Just the right amount though only one scallop on small plate was a little overpriced. Chef should be commended in presentation and quality of food excellent! Desserts were out of this world -- chocolate... More

I really enjoyed this place. We ordered half the menu because the descriptions sounded so good! Great tasting food and atmosphere. Loved the decor! The bathrooms were super tasteful and clean. Great experience.

If you like to be entertained while enjoying a fantastic meal, try the chef's table at Boca and you won't go wrong. The food is fantastic, try the tuna crudette for an appetizer. The whole time we were enjoying our meal we were watching the food prep and occaisionally had discussions with the chef's. They were pleasant and engaging, when... More
