Great food in a lovely atmosphere. Attentive staff. The grilled romaine, seafood risotto, and Bolognese were all terrific. Definitely a splurge, but a royal experience!

We enjoyed our dining experience, the potato appetizer was very unique. The meals were all good for our large party. We do like Sotto better as it is a bit more relaxed for about the same quality of food preparation. I recommend you check it out and decide for yourself. This is a great option for a special occasion.

I cannot overstate how incredible this place is - it is one of the best restaurants in the country - period. The flavors, the ambiance, the service - awesome. The wine list is extensive and imminently reasonable for this type of establishment. And the service - simply the best in Cincinnati. Smart, knowledgable and quick. The interior is a mix... More

First of all the positives for this are many. Great attentive staff and awesome ambiance. That gets 4+ starts for sure. I am not that impressed with food. It could be just me not being used to this type of food. The food is way too salty in my opinion. Also there is way too many things going on in... More

Went to Boca the other night with a group of six. We had a reservation, were seated promptly by courteous staff. I had "The Madison", a bourbon cocktail that was very tasty. The waitress did a great job of explaining the menu and made some recommendations. For an appetizer I had the Beet Cured Salmon. It was decent; I expected... More

Although you need to make reservations as early as possible, this experience cannot be beat. From the greeting at the entrance to the few words as you depart, a perfect dining experience Mood is amazing and service perfection

We have been here multiple times, they have notes on our family about what we like and the service is excellent. The atmosphere is very nice, although it can get a bit loud but thats because the place is usually quite busy. The always give us grilled bread, ask for it to start. I encourage you to look up the...

Is it expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? Yes. Attending with friends over the holidays, the service was impeccable. We were seated right away, our drinks were never empty, and the server had great suggestions when we weren't sure what to order. The ambiance was excellent - a full restaurant, but you could hear your party talk. The restaurant is... More

The title says it all. I was visiting in Cincinnati for business and we decided to go to Boca. We are not in Paris, London, Berlin, Chicago, New York or Tokyo to pay these prices for this food and service. I was flabbergasted. The portions were hideous, the noise was so overbearing that we could not even have a conversation... More

My wife and I tried Boca for the first time. I would not recommend or return. I even submitted feedback on their website to them and never heard back. We were still hungry after spending $140.
