I would eat here every week, if I could. The staff and prompt and courteous. The food, care and flavors are astounding. It is my favorite place to dine at. It does seem to be noisy (for me) during the weekend. But on a Tuesday night date, it's perfect. I'm not even a fan of Sangria and I love their... More

One of my sisters was visiting from England so my husband and I thought it would be a great experience to take her to Bocado for dinner and it was. Bocado is a Tapas (small bits) Wine Bar where you can sample many small portions of foods served hot or cold. It is a nice way to sample foods that... More

Eclectic tapas restaurant right in Worcester. We wanted to try something different for my son's 34th birthday, so we went to Bocado's. The dining room is intimate and nicely decorated, with a combination of booths along the walls and eclectic tables in the middle. The service was excellent, with the waiter helping us through the menu, as it was our... More

This is a tapas restaurant where you share small plates. Some are great and some are just okay but that is part of the experience. I thought the paella was just average. The mussels were excellent and the sangria was outstanding. I would definitely return with friends.

We celebrated my husband's birthday there. The food was delicious and service was wonderful. The waiters were very attentive to our party of 12.

This was always a fun place with good food and drinks. The last time we visited was after we got out of a late night of work and arrived after a flamenco dance (or other event). The staff was really resentful of us being there and frankly made it uncomfortable. It has been a cool place over the years but... More

I've been many times, for business meetings, special occasions and just dinner ... the portions are generous and the staff always nice and very knowledgable. There is complimentary valet parking if the lot across the street is full. Some criticism; the food is good, but not outstanding, it seems like they've been serving the same thing for a very long...

This was my first time at this type of restaurant so I was not sure what to expect. I am a very fussy eater which can be problematic. We were four people and took enough food home to feed two more people. We had a pitcher of sangria that was extremely small for the price. I was not crazy about... More

This tapas restaurant, tucked away on a side street, has a wide assortment of small plates, with an emphasis on seafood and sausages. Be prepared to have trouble deciding between all the delicious-sounding choices. One of their specialties is paella, with six variations offered. We were disappointed that there wasn’t much baked-on crust, our favorite part of this rice dish.... More

We were a group of 9 this past weekend at Bocado and it was lovely. The food was delicious and the service was very good. It was a perfect "experience" for our graduation celebration. The only thing that keeps me from giving it a full 5 stars is that it was a bit too noisy for our group, making it... More
