The variety is amazing 60+ items on the regular menu and there are monthly specials. Look at their web site before you go. It is very busy and noisy so its hard to hear the staff explaining the options. There are combo meals that are good buys (Two people is $75, Four is $135, etc). You will not leave hungry. It is also dark and its hard to read menus and blackboards. Wait staff is terrific and food come promptly and perfectly cooked. My favorites were: pro meatballs with figs, slow braised rabbit, calamari, scallop sauté, duck with balsamic syrup, dessert (amazing churros with chocolate sauce). Will definitely return.

Recently went to Bocado for a special occasion. There were 7 of us in total. We were very confused about how to order, so the waitress suggested the dinner for 6-8. She tried to explain but it was so loud in there we couldn't all hear her, and she told us to relay the information to the others at the end of the table. We decided to go with her recommendation as we didn't know any better. The amount of food we received would easily have served 12 people! It got to the point where it was utterly ridiculous and quite frankly, a waste of food and money. We were all full to bursting and still had paella, a WHOLE chicken, and 3 desserts left! We simply asked for it to be bagged - and left with FOUR bags of leftovers (although not all the desserts were sent home with us much to my dismay later that evening when I could then fit it in!). The food was great, just too much of it, and the waitress admitted after we made several comments about the amount of food that she thought we would have been ok ordering the 4-person meal. So why didn't se recommend that?? We could have always ordered more if needed. Bigger tip perhaps???

Just a dinner stop on our way to the b&b we're staying at. Wife looked this place up on trip advisor. The ratings are deserved! Our waitress,Andrea, excellent. Good for you Bocado! Even better for us!

We went there for a special occasion and had our own private room for 9 people. The service was excellent. Our waiter, Brian, timed everything perfectly in bringing the tapas' to our table and explained every dish and even asked us about any food allergies. We had with us an 11-year old fussy eater who ate everything. Two of us picked out our menu prior to our arrival since we thought it might be difficult with 9 people. Everyone was impressed with the food and was absolutely full when we left. Most of all, everyone enjoyed the fact that we were able to take our time eating. We were there for 3 hours. My son-in-law said it was perhaps the longest most enjoyable time he had spent with his in-laws. I would definitely recommend this place. Ask for Brian or Andrea for service.

Brian was out waiter and he was WONDERFUL. He had personality, incredible knowledge of the menu items, he wasn't afraid to recommend his favorites (to be honest we liked his recommendations better than our own selections) and he was attentive without being annoying ... something we really appreciate.

We ordered the Bocado Experience for Two priced at $75. Brian warned us that unless we liked leftovers we shouldn't order it because it was a lot of food. He was right. We ended up taking the entire order of Paella home with us.

We enjoyed all of the tapas items we ordered. The House Sangria was very good but was served in a rock glass ... as was the wine we ordered to go with our dinner.

Our only negative comments have to do with the fact that the atmosphere is a little dark and it was difficult to read the menus. We were not the only people we notice having this issue.

If you go check to see if Brian is working. He was a big part of our experience.
