Our dinner was absolutely fantastic. We ordered small plates in three waves. They were served with exactly the right timing so we could enjoy and savor each one before getting the next round. Water, bread, olives were replenished without having to ask. We ordered top shelf margaritas and they were outstanding. Nothing about Boca Bistro disappoints.

We particularly loved the clams with chorizo and the new steak tapas dish. I can't wait to return.

We really enjoyed lunch, the food was delicious the service was attentive but not overwhelming. The ham croquets were my favorite, the inside was so smooth and the outside crisp. The Calamari was very well cooked perfectly tender.
The shishito peppers would be my favorite if there was any way to get more that are spicy, but even google says 1 out of 10 can be spicy. They are tasty even if we only got one with heat.

My wife and I hadn’t had a date night in almost 4 years and our night at Boca was exactly what we were looking for and needed. The food was excellent and the staff- from the hostess to the bartender, waitress and bussers - was all wonderful. Thank you for such a great night!

Boca Bistro is our first stop (in the afternoon) when we meet to spend the weekend in Saratoga. We had margaritas which were good. Olives, bread and olive oil were at the table. We ordered tapas: shishito peppers (delicious!); deviled eggs (delicious); the small fried calamari (delicious and tender); the fried potatoes (did not like...they had potential, but were ruined by a reddish sauce, it may have stated that in the menu, but I guess I didn't read). I will visit again.

We were very excited to have an opportunity to spend quality time visiting and sharing a spectacular meal.
The restaurant seated us early at a nice small table and were very attentive. The place was not noisy and quite attractive. It was about 1/3 full.
We ordered wine and cocktails that were delicious. We decided to order many tapas dishes, rather than order a large plate, so we could taste more dishes.
The special was indeed special, a delicious beat, arugula and feta salad. The beets were spiced and the flavors we’re divine. We also ordered the calamari that looked amazing at the table next to us, but unfortunately, ours was soggy. The restaurant offered to replace the dish or refund, which was fine.
The next dishes were sautéed spinach, squash, crispy potatoes and garlic shrimp. Both the squash and the spinach were good. The shrimp was not very garlicky and the potatoes were soggy. We surmised that there must have been some issues with the fryer. The potatoes were also removed from the bill.
While we did enjoy ourselves and appreciated the kind wait staff, having three dishes that were disappointing I rated the food a 3.

Second time at Boco within the span of 3 years. Food portions have gotten smaller and prices have increased. We were at a table of six and ordered a variety of tapas but were disappointed with the octopus. The size wasn’t even a 1/3 of a tentacle and not even enough for 1 person to taste. Saratoga overs some great restaurants that have much better value for the $

This was a follow up visit post restaurant week, and I must say things were MUCH better. Same great food, but this time we had excellent service, the attentiveness of our waiter was just right. Not overkill but we never felt wanting either. Ambiance was great - just about 25-30% full and that made conversation easy. A nice Tempranillo, some tapas and a dessert made for a great evening.

My husband and I were hungry and decided on 3 tappas a piece. The waiter told us to start with 3 for the table and go from there. They were wonderful and bigger than expected! Octopus was amazing and the stuffed peppers were delightful! Would recommend any day! very reasonably priced.

We enjoyed the variety of Tapas dishes we chose. The fingering potatoes and beef strips on a bed of spinach were both excellent. Our favorites are still the bacon wrapped dates and the goat cheese salad. The serrano ham croquettes were also excellent.
