“Just drinks, but...”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Met friends here just for drinks, but saw a lot of food coming out and it looked really good. Will be returning for food for sure. Only four stars because the Basque cider (although the best cider I've ever had) comes in a small "traditional" glass.

“Flavorful Tapas and Friendly Service”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

The six of us came at the dinner hour and found seating on the main center table without a wait. The small restaurant was packed with people and VERY NOISY. Conversation was loud, but fun. We ordered a wide variety of dishes and all were fresh and delicious. The service was prompt, not rushed, and with just the right mix of vegetable and seafood/meat dishes. The two bottles of wines, one Spanish and one California were excellent. I was somewhat disappointed that there was only one order of empanadas left considering it was just 6 pm. Also, one of us went to the unisex bathroom and found it very dirty so we told the staff and it was cleaned immediately. With wine, the dinner was expensive, but worth it. This was my first visit and I enjoyed the food and service and look forward to a return next time I am in the city.

“San Francisco Gem”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

5his was our first visit. What delightful outing at the Boca restaurant. The food servings are huge, with very good favor, and are served with some real precision. Once our order was taken everything was served very timely. Good server attention. Every chance we getthis will be a place for us to eat dinner while in the city.

“Memorable!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

I have eaten tapas in Madrid, Sevilla, San Sebastián, Barcelona, New York, Boston, San Diego and Santa Fe. This restaurant ranks with some of the best in these cities. Fresh, local squid, clams, fish are the best things to order here, although the vegetarian dishes are splendid as well. The restaurant is small, cozy and packed with happy diners. I drank Manzanilla sherry, perfectly chilled and enjoyed seafood tapas masterfully executed, Bravo!!!

“Great tapa place!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I have a few out-of-town girlfriends visiting earlier this month, and this restaurant happen to have a deal that I couldn't resist. They don't take reservation but six of us were seated immediately and the wait staff was very patient explaining the menu to us. We tried the staff's recommendation, and everything is delicious - especially the chicken liver mousse, potato fries and halibut ceviche. I'll definitely go back again with friends.
