The salads where superb! I enjoyed the chop salad my wife had the spinach salad. The muscles were outstanding! The cocktails delicious overall highly recommend this place !
Visited while on family vacation. Loved the food and service was outstanding. Had the mahi mahi filet over veggie noodles, it was delicious. Everyone else’s food was perfect. Would definitely go back on our next visit to Siesta Key.
FOR NEXT TIME I HOPE THEY ARE NOT OUT OF FRENCH CHAMPAGNE....WHICH I WANTED FOR MY BIRTHDAY.
Boca serves some of the best food in Sarasota. If the noise level was just a little lower I would love to give it a fifth star.
My 4th time eating there and it never disappoints. Twice I've had the staff's selection and it is always amazing. This restaurant is one of my favorites.
Restaurant no longer takes OpenTable reservations and worked to accommodate us. Should be removed from this system to not cause future inconveniences
Second time at this location and it didn’t disappoint. Sweet potato gnocchi is excellent as well as the cheese board.
Food was great. Service was excellent. The only negative was the noise. Very hard to talk.
Otherwise was great !
Food was great, service was ok. Noise level was awful. We were at a round table that sat 6 people. Had to practically shout to get the person across from you to hear anything. I was hoarse the next day!
Great snazzy layout to the restaurant. We sat upstairs in he main dining and it was a little loud, but there was a pretty rowdy group seated next to us. Really enjoyed the bacon Brussels sprouts and Steak entree. My wife got the meatloaf and I was almost jealous. It was really good! I’m sure we will be back again. The old fashion was reason enough to come back.
Love the atmosphere! Server was friendly but not up to date on the specials....should have advised us an item on menu was no longer available, told us the wrong cobbler for the day. Most all the food being served rooked amazing. I was a bit disappointed with my Bibb salad....quite small compared to all other salads I have enjoyed previously & that I saw being served to other tables. It was tasty but should be considered a side salad.
Enjoyed our dinner at Boca! I love the atmosphere and overall creative and unique style. Wes was our server and had a great smile and was very polite. He did a great job explaining the specials and suggested some delicious cocktails. Look forward to another dinner or happy hour soon.
Uncomfortable chairs. Not greeted at door. Hostess was sub par. Server did well. Food and drink over priced, but both prepared well.
Dinner was very good. Everyone at the table ordered something different and all were great. I’d especially recommend the meatloaf and shrimp and grits. Waiter Ryan was very good as was Wes two weeks previously
We went in a double date with friends and had a great time. The food was fantastic!
Great atmosphere for a night w friends or a romantic dinner. Have visited several times, highly recommend.
As many people have mentioned, this place is extremely noisy. Noisy to the point you have to scream at each other to have a conversation. At one point we literally could not hear our waitress and were practically reading her lips. It’s that loud in this place. We dined upstairs, which was nice. Aside from the noise level, the food was excellent. My husaband said his steak was one of the best he’s ever had. I had the sweet potato gnocchi, which were not gnocchi, but butternut squash chunks in a good broth with cheese. If they can get the noise/music level down, I’d give this an all five star rating.
It was wonderful! Food & service outstanding. Very noisy but a good energy!
I came in on Mothersday. And sat outside and everything was great. Recommended it to group of friends for lunch, I had been telling everyone how great it was. Then it wasn't. Everyone was unhappy with the food and the service.
Excellent food served by very friendly "hip" staff. This place has a big city feel that's a little out of the ordinary for Sarasota. Our only complaint is that you have to practically shout to be heard because it gets REALLY LOUD when it's busy....which is pretty much all the time!
Bad,noise bad, food not good
Fourth visit. Still enjoyable. Roasted oysters excellent as was the Kale Caesar. Shrimp and grits delicious but I liked the dish better when it had less sauce and you could really taste the grits. Cocktails were fabulous. Will return.
Great food and the atmosphere is really nice. They have something on the menu for everyone as well.
Excellent restaurant! Both the food and the service were top notch. We come from a big city and are often disappointed by restaurants in smaller cities. Boca could hold its own in New York, DC, Chicago, or L.A. It’s our own gem right here in Sarasota.
Great farm to table! Went for lunch & dinner while I was in the area. :)
fits in with the great downtown vibe--liked the idea of ordering something that was unknown and ended up with the best outer layer on chicken--plus the brussel sprouts were the best ever
Little too noisy, hard to converse without shouting
We sat upstairs and it was very tight and loud. We have dined several times and sat downstairs - I would pass up a table upstairs from now on.
The staff could hardly serve.
Best restaurant in Sarasota. If you enjoy healthy, tasty, local food then Boca is the place for you! We tried the pies, the smoked meatloaf, the cachaca chicken, burger, and zucchini fries, which are all excellent. Their berry crumble and ice cream is simply delicious.
Alejandra was an efficient and very personable server-food was FANTASTIC!! We will be back often!
Wonderful dining experience. My mom and I had eaten there for lunch in May after being directed there by a resident of Sarasota. We looked forward to our anniversary dinner there, and Mom came along. It was a little loud downstairs and gladly accepted seating upstairs. Food was great. Waiter was awesome. And, Boca treated us to dessert to celebrate our 35th anniversary. I highly recommend if you are looking for a unique dining experience.
I liked the farm to table concept. However, the restaurant was very noisy, service was slow, food ok but I doubt we'll go back.
I love the atmosphere and food! Great service !
Jordan was outstanding and we will ask for him when we return.
The food is very good, but the staff seemed to have an attitude. When I asked if there was another table available because I didn’t want to sit by the restroom the Hostess laughed at me but then did show us another table. Our server was efficient but not pleasant. My daughter who works at a restaurant in Toronto couldn’t believe the staff was behaving this way. Left us feeling uncomfortable. Unfortunate because the food is quite good. But not sure I’d go back when there are so many restaurants to chose from in Sarasota.
Way too loud! Music too loud - have to shout to talk over music - left with sore throat and was desperate for quiet! This was our second visit and it was consistent with the first - second visit will be our last!
The chef and manager were very attentive to our meals and the food was superb (after a minor adjustment). We sat upstairs to try to be in a quieter environment but the entire place is so loud that you are yelling most of the time and repeating yourself. For a date or lively bar scene, it would be great, but not so great for friends just trying to catch up with each other.
Everything was perfect. The wait staff was excellent and the food was amazing. One of my best meals ever.
Really enjoyed our visit. A little put off by noise level at first but adjusted to it fine. The waiter and food were excellent! Will go back if I ever return to Sarasota.
I love the kale caesar with chicken. The last two times I visited, the chicken was not the same. The flavor was gone. Instead of a chicken piece, there were only strips. What happened???
However, the fried green tomatoes, burgers and sandwiches are great.
