I'm a foodie and I was DELIGHTED by this restaurant. Loved the "vibe," and the greeting at the door. The Manager couldn't have been more helpful and nice. We purposely sat at the kitchen bar where we could watch the Chefs at work. Service was excellent and the food was extraordinary. Great wine selection and the cocktails looked great although...

During our holiday visit to Northern Kentucky, my wife and I dined at Boca on December 27th in both 2015 and 2016. Both times were exquisite. There is a seafood risotto that is so good that you will dream about it every night for the following week. I had the Beef Wellington, which was wonderfully rich and the perfect portion.... More

While my daughter was visiting from out of town, she, my wife, and I had dinner at Boca. Every dish that we had (beet mezzaluna salad, hamachi crudo, bitter greens ravioli, gnocchi con fonduta, and wild mushroom rissoto) was delicious, and the service was efficient and courteous.

Boca is a restaurant unlike no other in Cincinnati. It's a great place to take clients from out of town - it's clean, the staff is professional, and the food is delicious. The Beef Wellington was our favorite! The frites are also quite delicious. The wait staff was willing to answer all of our questions and made the meal quite... More

This was a pre-theater dinner before 'Phantom of the Opera,' therefore if you're attending any event at the Aronoff, BOCA is literally around the corner. My first visit, and I was dining solo. I tried to get some idea of their offerings from their online menu (which changes seasonally), so while I had a general idea, I didn't know if... More

We were told that Boca is one the best restaurants in Cincinnati and I totally agree. Not huge selection of dishes but this helps to maintain good quality. Extremely good Saint-Jacques, risotto a little bit under, very good fishes. Large selection of wine, well balanced, especially French and Italian ones. Not the top but really excellent.

My study group decided to have our late 2016 meeting in Cincinnati. Our host gave us a couple of choices for dinner and we thought that Boca sounded great. We were not disappointed. We had several appetizers and bottles of wine prior to our entrees. All of the food, together with the ambiance and service made for a great evening... More

We try and dine at Boca two or three times a season when we are in town. The menu is limited, but everything on it is fantastic. You sense that unless it can be prepared to perfection, the chef refuses to offer it! The atmosphere is also excellent. We particularly like that the tables are not on top of each... More

We really enjoyed our evening at Boca but do make reservations in advance. If they offer you seating at a "family" table, don't turn it down...we were a bit worried, but it actually worked out very well. The wait staff were very helpful and attentive without being intrusive. We loved the menu choices. The food was excellent and innovative. It... More

The menu is quite interesting with a slight favor to modern Italian. We had the potato soufflé which is like a small pillowy puff of potato which is quite unusual and tasty. Then, we had the Caesar with slightly burnt romaine, again unique in preparation and also in taste. The first courses were seafood rosotto and pasta (ravioli) with bolognese... More
