After moving back from Europe my husband and I were feeling a bit depressed about the food selection in southwest Ohio. However, after a Valentine's dinner at Boca, we are both feeling happy and revived! The food was great and the service was top notch. Thank you for renewing our culinary spirit!

This is our favorite spot to celebrate life's milestones. The waitstaff bring their expertise to the table with the wine and the food. The anticipation of the cuisine is satisfied in every way. Amazing flavors and textures delight from seared scallops, brussels sprouts from heaven to desserts too tempting to pass up. It is pricey, but an experience to remember.

My husband & I visited Boca for the first time over the weekend and had an AMAZING meal! Boca may just be my new favorite restaurant in Cincinnati! We each had the "3 course & dessert" and everything was outstanding! It is not a cheap spot to dine, but for the food and the experience, it is worth every penny. They do great with spacing out each course as well so you have a minute to let your food settle before the next course comes... and they keep you supplied with bread, which I realized soon into the meal was absolutely necessary to mop up all of the yummy sauces and juices left on your plate... our plates were clean at the end of every course! Delicious.. highly recommended for any special occasion!!

We've been to Cincinnati many times but we had somehow never visited Boca until recently. With the exception of the Tuna Tartare which we sent back (we found it bland) everything that we ate was truly exceptional. The fish (we ordered halibut and sea bass) was as moist and delicious as you could ever imagine and all of the desserts were excellent. I'd also recommend the shell pasta with porcini mushrooms which was out of this world. The wine list is extensive, with options at pretty much every price point, and service was first class.

Be aware, however, that all of this comes at a price. There is no a la carte menu. The menu is either 2 or 3 courses, plus dessert, for a fixed (and not small) price. Our bill for 4 people, including a modest bottle of wine, exceeded $400.

That said, for a special dinner it's well worth it. Highly recommended.

I have eaten at Boca a few times now and have yet to be disappointed. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the service top notch. The menu is straight forward and uncomplicated with well thought out parings on each offering. The decor of the restaurant is contemporary, simple and rich and you are immediately greeted by the smell of the wood fired grill that wafts throughout the seating room.

On this visit, I ordered the scallop with brussel sprouts to start and the chicken over mushroom rissotto with truffle; both were amazingly flavorful and perfectly cooked. While the location is a little out of the way, it's well worth the ~10 minute drive from downtown Cincinnati. I will be back here for future dining.
