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

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
