I was passing through Saratoga Springs on business and had some time to spare. I stopped at the tourist information center and they gave me a discount coupon for that place, so I decided to have lunch there. What a pleasant experience! Competent and friendly service, nice contemporary atmosphere and outstanding food. I had Manhattan clam chowder and fried calamari.... More

The waitress who waited on us was surly. When we asked for more bread and some butter, and then needed to remind her after ten minutes, she was dismissive. Other than our party of six, there was only one couple in the restaurant who was being helped by another waitress. Also, three of us ordered the steak which, at $34... More

I am very sorry to read your review of your recent visit to Boca Bistro. I am disappointed that a guest left one of our restaurants feeling that they did not receive the DZ Dining experience that all of the DZ Restaurants have been built on. To read that a server was surly and dismissive is simply unacceptable, beyond my... More

I read up on Boca Bistro's lunch menu before visiting. Since I travel to Spain relatively frequently and love Spanish food I was especially looking forward to sampling trying their ham croquettes, something I don't prepare myself. They were magnificent. The olive dish served immediately with crusty bread was excellent. My fish sandwich however had an unappetizing burnt crust and... More

Stopped in for drinks and appetizers before heading to Sperry for dinner. We caught happy hour which reduced draft beer pricing but not the call drinks ordered. We shared the calamari and deviled eggs. Calamari was decent, probably better than average but not knock your socks off. Deviled eggs on the other hand did knock our socks off!! Four perfect...

Boca Bistro is located downtown and features small plates. Our server was top notch and made good suggestions as to what to order.- Food was excellent, had shishoto peppers, crudo, ceviche, ham croquettes. Dessert- chocolate sliced with bourbon cherries and toast. Yum!!!

We've been here a few times for lunch and evening meal. Simply put, every time we've been has been a fantastic experience. Sitting at the bar in the evening, having a glass of wine, and a few nibbles, is just the most wonderful way to spend an evening. The bar staff are great to chat with, and always make sure... More

We were in Saratoga Springs on a busy Saturday and didn't have dinner reservations so after some shopping etc. we popped into Boca and they were super nice and assured us it was not an issue. The server that we had (Beth) was very relaxed and knowledgable about the dishes (as many tapas are offered). We had several great plates:... More

We were in Saratoga Springs to buy new ballet shoes and have a early lunch. We window peeked to see someplace different and selected BOCA BISTRO. We weren't disappointed.

My son and I decided to stop in Saratoga Springs for dinner. We were window shopping for a restaurant and were very happy we chose Boca Bistro. The service was very good and the staff was friendly and attentive. We really enjoyed the bone marrow, lamb chops and the kale salad. Overall, a great experience..
