“Great atmosphere, delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

We had a fabulous meal here this past weekend. Our waiter was very helpful and made sure we ordered the right number of dishes for the two of us, and the food itself was outstanding. We stuck to vegetarian options and particularly loved the eggplant fries and the brussels sprouts with almonds. Presentation was beautiful. The restaurant decor was hip and comfortable, and everyone seemed to be having a great time. We especially loved our mint juleps in honor of the Kentucky Derby!

“Our New Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

My husband and I are sort of wanna b foodies, we're in constant search of unique eateries. We decided to try boca bistro out as a last minute date night idea and wow! So glad we did!
Seeing the giant metal pig outside didn't quite do the inside justice, it's like a gorgeous vintage inspired farmhouse with some industrial touches here and there, the ambience is just beautiful.
Upon arriving we were seated and handed several menus but the waiter came over immediately to explain how everything works and answer any questions. You can order several small plates to try a number of awesome sounding dishes or a large plate for regular dinner portions. We went with one small plate and two dinners. Our small plate was stuffed dates wrapped in bacon, they were like little bites of magic, so good! Our entrees were beautifully presented and amazingly delicious. When we go back again I think I'd prefer to do the small plate route, only because there's so many things I want to try.
Great place, great food, great night out! Well done Boca Bistro!
TIP: Their shrimp is out of this world!

“Tapas on Broadway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Had lunch at Boca the other day and it was really good, we had the Serrano Ham sandwich (split it) and a couple of beers while sitting at the bar.

The atmosphere is really nice and the service was first class, we'll be back.

“Great Atmosphere, Good Drinks, Decent Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

I love the ambiance of Boca. It's great for dates or for a more upscale happy hour out with friends. The drinks are great too, with a decent selection of higher end liquors. The food is decent - nothing overly great, but still good. Would definitely go back.

“Second time here - can't wait for third”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

We were in SSprings a year ago, and lucked on to Boca Bistro. We couldn't wait to get back to it this year - and it surpassed last year's meal.
Knowledgeable waiters make a meal - and both times here, our waiters were excellent. Great recommendations on wine, and careful shepherding through a complex menu. Making sure we didn't over-order, and overwhelm our palates.
Both times we have left with happy heads and happy tummies. As good as it gets.
