The best restaurant, hands down, that I have ever eaten in. The place is beautiful, and second to none. The staff is amazing, always going above and beyond with helpfulness, knowledge of the food, wine and preparation. The food from the very first morsel to the desserts is simply outstanding, again second to none. If you are in Cincinnati, you must go. If you just want to experience what a five star Restaurant really is like, drive, fly, but go.

Oh boca how I love thee let me count the ways. My wife and I first experienced boca 4 years ago on Montgomery road and fell in love immediately with the tasting menu. We returned many times over the years and continued to enjoy the changing menu that was always anchored by the marvelous Brussels sprouts, filet boca and marscapone cheesecake. When we learned last year they were moving downtown we feared a great restaurant would be lost. We experienced the new boca shortly after it opened last year and while it was good it wasn't the boca of old. No tasting menu and no marscapone. Last night we returned to boca and what a great experience again. Even though there is no tasting menu the tasting portions were presented in just the right sizes and the fall menu was unbelievably good. We enjoyed pommes soufflés to start and the Brussel sprout salads were Devine as always. We both enjoyed the ravioli which is perfect. Our main entrees were amazing and perfectly portioned but the marscapone cheesecake was the crowning jewel. It is back and it is as good if not better than ever. We live 3 hours from Cincinnati and we are taking two pieces home. I have dined all over the world in world renowned restaurants and boca is second to none. Thank you boca for bringing truly memorable dining to Cincinnati and our region. We will return to Cincinnati many times each year just for you.

Great atmosphere.
Slowest bar service I have experienced in a year with inexperienced staff assisting the bartender.
Decent wine list.
Three dishes - two very good and one marginal.

We had a great dinner at the trendy new Boca restaurant. The location of the old Maisonette restaurant has been transformed. The upstairs has been opened up with comfortable tables and the absolutely stunning chandelier which actually is the showpiece of the whole restaurant. The bar area is warm and welcoming. We ate upstairs. Our waiter was pleasant and well- informed about all of the menu selections. We all tried something different. They had small plates as well as entree selections. The potato app was delicious. The beef wellington was extra special.The fish and the filet as well as the risotto were highlights at our table. The chicken was average. All in all a lovely evening with very friendly service.

Boca is an absolute must! Difficult to get a table and once you dine there you will know why. Gorgeous reinvention of the classic restaurant it once was. I love brussel sprouts and these are the best i've had anywhere!
