We are in town for business and got the recommendation for Boca from our Hotel. It was just a few blocks away - perfect walking distance. The wait was not very long, we did not have reservations for our party of 5. Service was phenomenal - very knowledgeable about the menu, food prep, etc. The menu is set up in... More

We stayed in Cincy for one evening at the 21c museum hotel. We spent the day seeing art around the city and saw a play at the ensemble theater. We followed our play with reservations at boca. It was the perfect way to finish a lovely day. Our dinner was amazing. Our server David was super fun and friendly. He... More

You have to have the bad boy bread and scallops w/ brussel sprouts small plate. Then move on to the seafood risotto.

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 is a diverse series of small plate masterpieces begging you to indulge your senses. I... 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 sorbet/gelato medley), making the price-per-bite very high. But for open-minded palates and a special occasion,... More

If you have an adventurous palate Boca is a must! Delicious wines, unusual take on familiar dishes, and delectable desserts. They have one dish that is an homage to the Maisonette (Boca is located in the former restaurant's location) that is amazing. Plus the staff is top-notch - they were all pleasant, knowledgeable, and provided great service!

We visited Boca for the first time and had a wonderful dining experience. We started at the bar for a fantastic cocktail, the menu looked fantastic and interesting! I would have loved to try a few more concoctions. Shortly after, we preceded to our table on the second floor. The ambiance in this place is spectacular! It was very romantic... More

This is one of the nicer fine dining restaurants in Cincinnati. It is in the perfect location if you are near Fountain square or going to catch a show after dinner. The menu is not very extensive, but everything on it is very high quality and changes with the seasons. The staple Boca burger was excellent. I also had the... More

Blown away start to finish. Such a nice treat to go to a cozy restaurant on a cold night. The staff was attentive, educated and exceeded our expectations!! Atmosphere, food, wine and servers get an A+. Thank you, BOCA for giving us an exceptional dining experience. Ask for Kyle!!

We dined at Boca,again, recently and had a nice meal. We have found that ordering the smaller portions is a much better option. We can try more food without overeating. The food is always good, but I still find it odd that they charge for bread at what they charge for everything else. We also do not understand the shouts... More
