I recently visited Boca Bistro with friends while were in town for the day, and we all enjoyed our experience very much. I loved the ambiance and decor; seemed like we were back in New York City. Our waiter was friendly and very attentive and knew how to answer questions about the menu items. My hubby and I decided to try the lunch tapas; we ordered the garlic shrimp, pork belly, ham croquettes, and two different kinds of mac and cheese. He had the one with chorizo and I had the Autumn one which featured butternut squash. Everything was fresh and flavorful! Our friends had the classic burger and chicken sandwich and our wine selections were very good, as well. I would definitely recommend this trendy eatery to those looking for a unique and tasty menu.

Fantastic service. Relaxing, woodsy-industrial decor. This was our first time and we will return. Our 6 year old loved the churro waffles. I really enjoyed my kale salad, but the added chicken was very dry. The rest of our food was so good that we thought the dry chicken was an accident. We look forward to experiencing dinner here.

Had a late reservation for dinner to celebrate a special occasion with my fiancée. They greeted us with a two glass of champagne- very nice gesture and appreciated.

We ordered the “return of the Mac” and the chicken entree both recommended by our server. They were both very very bland! No flavor and not a lot of flavors for hot sauces or condiments to spruce up the meal.

Our server also provided us with complimentary crem brûlée , also a great gesture. It was pretty good.

Overall 3/5 due to the flavor of the entrees.

Delightful lunch in Saratoga.

My wife and I enjoyed the tapas at Boca Bistro,while sitting outdoors and enjoying a fairly quiet day in downtown Saratoga. The server was attentive and took a personal interest in who we were. I look forward to returning to try some of the tapas we did not get a chance to taste.

Third time visiting and as good as the last, only complaint is noise. A little too loud to hear companions or waiter. Wouldn’t stop me from returning, just wanted to say it for anyone looking for a quiet place.

We stopped in 2 weeks ago to just check things out and catch a drink and snack, so Saturday, we came back for a big time afternoon. This place did not disappoint! We sat at the bar for a couple of hours, eating appetizers and sipping cocktails, prepared perfectly by the excellent bartender. After we took a table, and checked out the fine menu, we ordered a huge paella, that was really fantastic!
Our server also was great, both friendly and efficient, and brought our orders with accuracy!
This is a fine establishment, with wonderful staff members, and we shall be back.(when covid is over)

The food was average, nothing special. Octopus was a bit salty. Salads were nice, probably the best part of the meal (we had kale salad and tomato salad special). Paella was not impressive at all, pretty average

Third time at Boca for appetizers when I am in Saratoga. Margs were good, service was good, the deviled eggs are always excellent. Sweet potato quinoa cake was different. The fresh chips that came with it were overly salted. The fried calamari, although cooked well, had no taste, no salt, no seasoning. Disappointing. But I will return because I like Boca.

Went on a Sunday for brunch - so the menu was limited which was disappointing-and the Sangria was not good - Overpriced for lunch - Would consider going for dinner so would have more options. Good location in town, nice decor and service was excellent.

We frequent Boca a decent amount when we like to get out (before COVID-19). Today was the first time in a while that we got to go back. Nice lunch with friendly service once again! Kale salad was warm and seemed a bit rubbery (not fresh & crisp). Dressing was OK. Not the best meal this time for sure. We will be back because we believe this was a one off and unsure of staffing, etc from pandemic. We expect the food to be on point and will pay a bit more for the overall experience here. Only hope people take the precautions of this pandemic seriously or we will locked down once again.

My party and I sat inside. Service was great and our server was nice and checked on us often. Although the ambiance was nice, it was rather hot and I wish that they turned on the air conditioning as opposed to having their restaurant door open. other than that the food was great and I especially liked hearing about the daily specials. It was also helpful that our server had good recommendations as to what to order!
