We ate here when visiting from out of town to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. My first impression was how beautiful the restaurant is, and the supreme attention to detail from the entrance to the dining area to even the restrooms. It's absolutely gorgeous. Everything...More

The restaurant is modern but very comfortable. The service was excellent with being intrusive. The food was simply amazing. The portions were not huge so that you could try various dishes. From salad to pasta to a delicious beef filet. Everything was delicious!

Boca simply exceeds any expectation you might have for an innovative Italian/French inspired celebration of culinary excellence. This is not your chicken parm and fried calamari! This is profoundly enjoyable culinary performance art of a magnificent world class chef and his inspired team. The format...More

We were blown away by this place. Our six dishes - beet salad, roasted romaine salad, wild boar pasta, bitter greens ravioli, tropical panna cotta and a sorbet/gelato medley - were all incredible. Be aware that portions are very small (with the exception of the...More
