The food was excellent, however, upon arriving they didn't have my reservation that I had made through Open Table. We were sat quickly but placed in the rear room of the restaurant - the only people back there - and the ambiance was really not good when the front room was the better location.
This visit to Boca for my wife and I was an overall 3 star "good" but with a wide range of ratings within. Things started off well as we were given a nice booth in the back room as requested and my vodka gimlet was one of the best I have ever had. We started with zucchini fries that my wife did not like but I thought they were "good". My wife had a salad and I the gazpacho and both were very good. Things went downhill from there when the entrees arrived just moments after the salad and soup were served. I make it a point not to send food back to the kitchen but with hindsight should have done so in this situation. I had the bbq meatloaf with truffle fries and corn and found it to be outstanding- 5 stars. Unfortunately my wife was very disappointed with her steak. It was overcooked from he desired medium rare and the radish and mushroom accompaniment was cold and she rated her meal a 2. I wish the ratings had been reversed as I doubt my wife will agree to return to Boca any time soon.
We like Boca. Have been there before. Will go again.
But was disappointed this Sunday brunch when we were sat in front half -- where there was no working air-conditioning -- without warning.
It's August in Central Florida. And 90 degrees.
We sweated through our meal. I understand mechanical problems happen. But you'd be better off letting guests know beforehand, so they can decide if they want to proceed. We had a guest from out of town.
Been here for my friends bday 2 months ago and LOVED IT! Decided to come for my bday dinner. Food was great on a whole . But we had to send back the chefs cut of beef since it was very grisly and tough ;( service was AMAZING! There was a REALLY loud Group of people next to us that were carrying on SO extremely loud which was very hard to ignore;( on a whole , delicious
Great service from a very friendly server complimented by tasty food for adults and children. Next time, would love to avoid the table being blasted by the AC.
Great food, great service!
The food was expertly prepared and fine. However, the experience was ruined by a loud group at the bar whose antics included shouting obscenities throughout the dining room.
Great location on Park Avenue. Good service and delicious food. I recommend the mussels!
Excellent food served by knowledgable wait staff. Usually get the staff meal always good
Great service. Did take 20mins to get drinks and to place food order, however server was noted to be setting a table and taking order of another table hat was sat. Food was subpar for expectations and price. Was sat inbetween a walkway to another restaurant which the kitchen apparently also serves food to therefor servers constantly walking back and forth and bumping into my chair. For a special birthday visit, was disappointed overall.
Always welcomed here with lively spirit and great food. Our waiter Zack was the best we have had in since dining here for four years and Sarah the manager is always attentive and helpful. There is a variety of food choices even for those requiring gluten and dairy free options, and if at all possible will try to work with those who have special dietary needs. A terrific place.
Overall - the experience was good!
Great food and service with Braden...Sarah the manager was also very courteous. We’d like to suggest paper straws for those guests who prefer straws and/or a no straw option.
The hostess, the outdoor seating or the dish I ordered were not great, but the waiter made up for it.
The Apple and Brie flatbread was fantastic! The scallops were great. The smoked chicken was not to my liking. The blackberry cobbler was ok.
Good food, drinks and service.
The food was yummy and the service was even better!
It was a little warm inside but everything else was great!
It was very hot inside the restaurant
Always a great time at Boca. Great cocktails and better food!
Good service, nice meslb
Great food...excellent waitress...outstanding menu choices...nice ambience...far superior to any Ruth Chris, or expensive Winter Park fancy restaurants...
Great food, service and ambiance! ❤️
Delicious food and a wonderful atmosphere!
I have always loved the location, but after several bad experiences with different owners, menus, and poor service sat out for a year. NOW they really have it together. I will go back soon.
Very knowledgeable service backed up by freshly created dishes with complex flavors.
Went on a Sunday for brunch. Had a reservation and was seated quickly. Placed was busy Service was great. Emilio was wonderful!
upon entering the restaurant, I was greeted with a bright smile - always a good sign. The decor is trendy and smart and in some cases reusable. I ❤ the multipurposed items like the coasters, and the plate liners with the BOCA stamped. I was super Imptessed. Also having which farms that the venue utilizes was unique and helpful.
Our server was great! Food tasty!! Will def come back!
The birthday card on the table when we arrived was a nice touch.
We were very excited to try Boca; we have one where we live in Tampa. My husband ordered the hangover Panini and I ordered a Cuban. I asked at the Cuban be will pressed and hot inside. When I got the Cuban it wasn’t hot so I sent it back. We were eating at the bar so the bartender brought it back They had taken the meat putting it on a sub roll and apparently nuked it. So the bread wasn’t crisp and it wasn’t pressed. It’s actually my fault for not sending it back again but it was a lovely lunch with my husband and I just didn’t want to cause a fuss. I would say that the bartender was aware of the situation because we didn’t see that bartender again. All of a sudden we had a different bartender waiting on us. I would definitely go back to Boca but if that happened again I would call a manager
Fun loud smaller but open place. Food has been consistently good. Had all the toasts (yum) scallops, burger and kitchens choice.
Food was very good, particularly the salads. Love that use of local food is important here. Service was a bit scattered and air conditioner must not have been working up to par as it was rather uncomfortably warm. Will try again since food was worth coming back for.
Our overall experience was marred by in inoperable air conditioning unit. We should have been warned.
Food was amazing as always, service was awesome!
Boca was just ok for the price . Service was amazing, but very loud inside . We could not hear each other from across the table .
The plates we very dirty that were sitting on the table, server was embarrassed and did replace them right away.
The food was not exceptional, it was just ok. We would not go back , but I’m sure it’s great for a very young crowd .
We went for Sunday Brunch. Every aspect was lovely. The food was delicious, the service helpful and courteous, the atmosphere welcoming and clean. We will definitely be back.
We tried the seafood dishes Scallops and shrimp. Both excellently prepared and beautifully served
Waitress was so helpful and nice. She made sure the food was prepared just as we requested. The food was really “excellent”, not just good.
Disappointed with the food. Not the same food experience I had previously. Service was good and friendly but probably will not dine there again for a while....
We were seated outside and though the servers seem to had forgotten about us at the start, once we ordered the service was quick. The food was fantastic. I ordered the skirt steak and it was cooked perfectly. Members in my party had the chicken and scallops and only had good things to say as well.
