“Very nice high end restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

They have moved to downtown where the Maisonette used to be. Just reopened this week.
The portions looked small but were very rich. Could have not eaten another bite by the time we were ready to leave.
The grilled Caesar salad was to die for.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Boca is always a great dinning experience. I was there during their last week in this location. They are moving to downtown Cincinnati shortly. Hopefully, they will keep the high food quality and service which Boca has always had. One suggestion ... my son loves the sliders which are not on the main dinner menu. You can have them as an appetizer or even conceivably as a main course. They are truly excellent!

“Cincinnati favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Wood fired grill. Sous-vide. Sushi. Outstanding food and wine list. Given the above cooking styles you can actually go here and have a reasonably healthy meal (but only if you try!)

“BOCA - Sublime Italian for the Foodie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten at restaurants all over the world. Our most difficult cuisine to enjoy is Italian. My wife is Italian and nothing compares to Grandma. Occasionally, in the hills above Sorrento, in the Tuscan countryside, on a back street in Rome, at a trattoria in San Francisco, or a tiny restaurant in the West Village, she will find the cooking wonderful and almost comparable to Grandma. BOCA meets her high expectations and often goes beyond. It is simply a marvelous dining experience and surpasses anything else in the Midwest for Italian, including Chicago and the kitchen refuses to bend to the Midwest palate which often demands over saucing and a cloying sweetness to the cooking. The Mozzarella imbedded in lemon was sublime. The pastas are cooked al dente with just the correct amount of homemade sauces. Service is professional, but with a personal warmth that makes dining an experience rather then simply a meal. BOCA's wine list, in spite of the state of Ohio's antediluvian restrictions on alcohol, is interesting and filled with inexpensive choices and my favorite, half bottles of great wine. If BOCA was close by, I would weigh 250 pounds with a cholesterol count higher then the national debt. It is a restaurant done right and a treasure for the city of Cincinnati.

“Thank you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

After moving back from Europe my husband and I were feeling a bit depressed about the food selection in southwest Ohio. However, after a Valentine's dinner at Boca, we are both feeling happy and revived! The food was great and the service was top notch. Thank you for renewing our culinary spirit!
