This is a gem in Saratoga Springs. The food was excellent, and the service was right on. Location could not be better. A definite repeat stop.

The "go to" Saratoga spot for tapas and paella. Good value wine by the glass. Eat at a table or, at the bar. Garlic shrimp and pork belly are excellent tapas choices. Go with the paella misto.

Food was delicious! Atmosphere was good for a date night. I was satisfied with COVID safety protocols. The server was a real professional and made the experience even more enjoyable. We had an assortment of tapas, and when we were ordering what was likely going to be too much (we hadn't realized the size is larger than what you might get in Spain), he suggested we cut it off at fewer dishes. This was much appreciated. They did a wonderful job of staggering the tapas rather than bringing all out at once, which may have otherwise resulted in some of the food sitting in front of us too long. We had a great experience overall and look forward to going here again in the future!

Boca Bistro was a good dinning experience with great food and an accommodating staff. This restaurant is a bit smaller or cozy depending on your perspective. The menu had a nice selection but was a bit small. Seems like a nice place for a drink and eats.

Good thing we made reservations! We went on Valentine's Eve (Saturday) and they were turning people away left and right. We enjoyed the tapas menu. Servers and patrons were masked and it seemed to be as socially distant as you could be.

The food was great. The pork belly was the star of the show for me along with the asparagus.

We're gluten free and they did offer us complimentary GF bread for the table (it was probably Udi's or something like that so not something I would rave about but the thought was nice!)

Best food and drinks of the night, and we hopped around to four places. Excellent and friendly service. Just wish the “small plates” had a few more bites on them. Delicious but literally 3 bites. Still my favorite place.

Our table was secluded which is nice, but it’s a strange location right near the entrance. It was also a little cold where we were seated. Gluten free bread is a nicety but I think it would be more appreciated if it wasn’t just a couple slices of sandwich bread. There are plenty of GF options out there now.

Just dined on Friday evening after multiple attempts in the past to get a reservation. It was worth the wait. The food, service and ambiance were all excellent. The bread and olives were the perfect compliment to the garlic shrimp, octopus and chick peas tapas dishes we shared. I look forward to trying other things on the menu next time since everything was delicious.

Charcuterie board was excellent as was the Paella Mixta. Great flavors and enough for two plus lunch for one the next day!

Tapas choices were good as well.

Food was very good. Steak was tender and flavorful. Sea bass was quite cool and a bit undercooked but flavor was good. I do feel it was a little pricey but we would go back. Service was great and nice atmosphere.

Service was great. Drinks were just ok. Appetizers/tapas were Ham Croquettes (hot and cold in parts like they weren’t in the microwave long enough) and Calamari (on the tough side, soggy). Entrees were Chicken (no flavor, unsalted, fried to death; purée and veggies were good) and Mac and Cheese (they sent the wrong Mac and cheese but still was unseasoned, unsalted, oily, penne pasta). Normally we would have left after the drinks didn’t meet expectations but it was NYE. We are not regulars at this restaurant and most others seem to love it so we didn’t send any dishes back or provide feedback on the spot... they might have addressed the issue. We enjoyed it as best we could. My opinion may be contrary to the majority but it is my opinion. Not intended as anything else.

It was a quick lunch but all were delicious! The service was friendly but polished and very attentive. By the way everyone that works there hustles, one can tell that the A-team staff are a devoted bunch. We are out of town era, but felt included, and safe( with COVID rules being honored by all). Would love to come back for dinner next time.

Our waiter was fantastic. Very friendly, made great suggestions.

Tapas prices were double what I would have expected. $22 for 2 scallops ... ?
Maybe for 6 scallops.

Overall .. still a great night out. Just too expensive.

Our dining experience was very enjoyable until a group of demonstrators proceeded down the street in front of building. Makes dining uncomfortable in city. City needs to address this problem ASAP.

Returned to this fun restaurant for Restaurant week. Busy place as it was Saturday night. We were seated quickly- friendly staff. Our waiter was very busy but gave us good service. Calamari for an appetizer was tasty. We also got the soup and potatoes Bravos . They were both ok. The potatoes are usually crispy and I am guessing they had a lot of food to make and just didn't have the time to cook as usual. The steak dinner was very good. The pasta dish was tasty as well. They gave an apple churro for dessert and that was very good as well. We had a very nice time and will be back.

Everything was excellent and we were so glad to see some of the older dishes back on the menu. My wife loved the seafood stew until the last chef came aboard and changed the broth. Now it is back to the original recipe and she was elated. Service was very competent and careful in these covid times.
