This was possibly the best dinner I have ever had. The Amish Chicken was incredible. Our waitress Jennifer was knowledgeable about the menu, personable and professional. We would not hesitate to eat there again. It was my wife's birthday and they definitely helped make it special.

Best meal in Cincinnati. The bad reviews are clearly coming from those who don't often pay for good food. Was it expensive? YES. Will I return? YES. Don't go if you're worried about the bill. Go for a special occasion. Make sure to make a reservation. The brussel sprouts are amazing. The pastas are delicious. The portions are small because... More

It was our anniversary celebration so I decided to take my wife out for this wonderful event. We ordered Salmon and the sea food bisque. No salad or vegetables included as well as the portions beig very small met with our disapproval. We were obviously extremely hungry when we left. We spent well over $100.00 for two meals that did...

The bread, the beet salad, the branzino and the decor/ambiance was such a pleasant surprise for the city...I'm still dreaming about it.

Dined with a large group and still service was exceptional. The decor is beautiful and the food and experience matched it. Try the corn pasta (forgot the name), it is simply remarkable. The beet salad was quite interesting - slivers of beet wrapped around a tasty cheese. Love the Brussel sprout flavor, but not texture (more like mushroom in texture,... More

Our first trip to Boca and it was an enjoyable evening. The service was great-the waiter explained the menu without droning on and on. Seafood risotto,steak, and Amish chicken were all enjoyed by our party. Prices are reasonable. Only complaint is I noticed that the music on the first floor was deafening. Fortunately we were upstairs.

There were four to our party. We each ordered an entree. On top of that we ordered all the appetizers on the menu and everything else that came in small plates. We figured that was a good way to sample everything. Everything was delish but, believe it or not, we all still left feeling hungry. Btw, we also ordered desserts....... More

Boca surprised us with a superior dining experience. This was our first visit to this downtown Cincinnati restaurant. In nutshell Boca is an intriguing fusion of Italian food with classic French sauces that packed a flavor punch on everything they graced. The menu rotates monthly and we will be scoping out future month’s menus (posted via their website) and plan... More

Casey was amazing and he answered all our crazy questions. I have always hated brussel sprouts but Casey was right these are not your Mamma's brussel sprouts! The beet and goat cheese = yum. The risotto is divine. The salmon is refreshing. The cheesecake is like no other. This is definitely on the list for a repeat visit so I... More

Superb food, great atmosphere, cool "water closets". There were 2 in our party and we ordered tasting portions of 4 different dishes. The server brought each dish out with 2 warm plates and gave us plenty of time to enjoy before bringing the next. It was a wonderful culinary experience.
