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.

My wife and I just had our first dinner here for our fifth anniversary and tried a bunch of different small plates including the corn ravioli, clam risotto, Bronzino filet, and lamb confit. The ravioli, risotto, and fish were all excellent. The lamb was the only reason we didn't give the place five stars. It tasted more like pot roast... More

Enjoyed dinner at Boca recently. The menu is seasonal and the quality of the delivered product is excellent. Two of us split two starters, two tasting sized pastas, one tasting sized risotto, and one entree sized main and were just full enough by the end of the meal. We decided to skip dessert because nothing looked particularly interesting but there... More

I visit Boca once a month, and got to try their different menus each season. Whenever I have visitors in town from Europe I always take them to Boca and it never disappoints. The service is good and the food excellent. In my recent visits, I've been asking for a different table as I notice they tend to always have... More

Boca is clearly one of the best restaurants in Cincinnati. We have eaten at Boca at each of its incarnations over the past years -- on the west side, on Madison and now in the old Maisonette building downtown. The food and service in the new location have not suffered, even though in a bigger space. And the renovation of... More

The food, the service and the decor were all memorable. Tried the carmelized brussel sprouts - very inventive and delicious and had no resemblance to traditionally prepared ones which I do not care for. The table favourite was the Amish Chicken, it melted it your mouth. The Risotto was also great but if you order the small portion you will... More
