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

Definitely worth your time. Food is excellent and I like the portions and being able to order a half (get 2 different items to make a meal). Nice wine list. Excellent service and attention to detail, though I thought it would be a little "fancier". Our server was very knowledgeable as were others that I heard. I guess I just... More

Exceptional service and quality. The most difficult part of the 'Boca Experience' was choosing what to have. Their 'taster' options are ideal for the guests like us. The prices, which we found reasonable and value - reflect the dedication and thought put into this restaurant. My choices of the Sea Bass and Icelandic Cod were perfect, the Chef came to... More

Boca was a great meal. They offer whole or smaller portions called tasting menu do we shared several and loved them all, the seafood risotto, the filet with king crab, torteloni ragu di carne, Chef David came out and talked with us, then sent us out a free dessert called a buckeye candy bar (outstanding). very cool place!

Boca sets the bar in Cincinnati for fine dining. The food is always amazing and the service is perfection. The people who work at Boca are focused on delighting their customers in every way. My husband and I have food allergies and the Boca team always does an amazing job to make sure our dining experience is not compromised in... More

I have been eating at this restaurant on and off for the last 6 years, going back to when they were in Oakley. I don't get it. Their food is good, not great. Then when you consider their prices, it is disappointing. Service is great, food is good, prices are absurd. Their are lots of other restaurants in Cincinnati that... More

In Cincy on business. Dined here with a colleague and we both ( global travellers) were absolutely blown away. The food is terrific, the service top class and a great ambience. Great selection of beers, wines and spirits as well. I liked it so much that came back solo next night for dinner again! Highly recommended.

In Cincy on business! This place is really amazing. I would put it up there with NYC restaurants. I had the scallop and brussel sprouts appetizer, seafood risotto and the halibut. The beauty of half portions is it allowed me to try a few things. I loved each dish. The half portions of the entree can be a bit pricey... More
