Best meal we have had in a while. The location is perfect, right in the heart of Broadway St. The ambiance is cozy, we didn't feel cramped or crowded and our waiter was very attentive. He gave us great recommendations for how much to order...for two and we got 4 Tapas and each one was better then the next. They were all delicious. The Sangria was great and we finished with warm and fresh Churros. I would recommend!More

We went here based on a recommendation from a local and it was fantastic. We had trouble deciding, but went with the highly recommended Mixta Paella which was delicious and could easily feed 3 - 4 people. It has large amounts of seafood! The bottle...of wine were also very reasonably priced. They have a few outdoor tables, but the outdoor space is very limited. I definitely recommend dinner here and making reservations. They also do a bring which looks very good as well.More

We very much enjoyed our tapas dinner on a Saturday night! We ordered garlic shrimp, mussels, friend calamari, goat cheese salad (so highly recommend!), pork belly, and stuffed peppers (also highly recommend!). We enjoyed dinning outside on the street of Saratoga Springs. Our server Shane...was outstanding - so friendly, honest, and enjoyable. We will definitely dine here again on our next visit.More

We used to absolutely love going to Boca's Sunday night happy hour, as it was the very best value in town, with great drinks, great tapas and excellent service. We went back last night and sadly, all that has changed, and no more HH specials...on Sunday nights. We decided to order the Paella with seafood, which back in the day, was an incredible value and filled with seafood, chicken and chorizo. Unfortunately, as with all things good, someone sees fit to change them. The paella is much smaller ( and more expensive) than it was a few years ago, and was mostly chewy calamari rings. There were only tiny bits of chorizo, and the two shrimp and two scallops looked and tasted, like they were added as an afterthought, and the clams and mussels were tiny and barely open. On a positive note, the bartender, Rob, was excellent and even offered to take our food back for something else, but we soldiered on. We don't plan on giving up on Boca, but will skip the Paella from now on, and hope they get back to a normal soon.More

recommended by front desk host at Hilton across street, glad I listened to him (after checking reviews too). Had the gazpacho and white bean and shrimp apps, were filling. Sat outside. Very comfortable and good service.

Another visit to the beautiful town/city of Saratoga Springs New York. On our 5 hour drive from Ontario Canada my little blue eyes made reservations and Boca Bistro. And what a great plan that was. We arrived early for 7 pm dinner and our man...of the night Erin was THE MOST perfect server. He is an individual who is attentive, observant, courteous and pleasantly humurous. Truly made the night for us in this fantastic dinning establishment. Our dinner, prepared by our chef Ian was made perfectly from the made to preference apps to the main courses which did not disappoint. Again, perfect portion size, boasting with a balance of flavour and taste and topped off with amazing presentation and value. After dinner Audra and her team finished our dining experience with a final glass of wine and drink at the bar. Ladies and gentlemen, our dining experience was so good we joined the “preferred guest” membership at Dz Restaurants and received 10% off our wine and discounts at our next dining experience at DZ restaurants. But that doesn’t matter. The Dz restaurants are so worth the experience in Saratoga Springs when you expect value, amazing service and equally great environment. So looking forward to our reservations at Chianti tomorrow.... stay tuned for the review. Thank you David and team for making our trip another memorable one!! Michael and LisaMore

Good food, beautiful decor. Tapas are good but a little pricey, 5 dishes were plenty for 3 of us to share and be full. Others enjoyed full entrees. The best part was the white sangria. Great server, beautiful decor.

I love it! When you walk in you are greeted by 10 metal pigs, paying homage to Spanish cuisine’s affinity for this special animal. The food is great, featuring strong takes and riffs on classics like patatas bravo and, of course, chorizo and other incarnations...of pork. 🐖🐖🐖More

Service here was some of the best I have seen; not sure if Boca hires servers with excellent expertise or they have their own training program. I had the burger with bacon and mushrooms, cooked exactly as requested. My friend had the salad with goat...cheese and we shared an order of deviled eggs. All were excellent. Only downside was that I was surprised that they charged full price for a refill on my ice tea, which was a blend of 3 teas and was excellent. This was my first visit here.More
