Celebrated my birthday with my wife and good friends. The paella and our assorted tapas were delicious as well as the bottle of Rioja.
Our server, Shane was excellent and added to the occasion to make it a memorable night!

My wife and I had an outstanding meal and evening at Boca Bar Bistro. We sat at the bar and although the bartenders were quite busy the service was exceptional. We will most definitely revisit Saratoga Springs in the near future and this restaurant will be one of the reasons we return.

We sat down and the waiter wanted us to instantly order and checked back every two minutes which did not give us time to decide and he made me feel rushed.

If you like Mayo then this is a restaurant for you! We ordered the deviled eggs and they came in a pile of Mayo - not what I was expecting. I also ordered the Fidel which arrived at the table dried out with a huge dollop of Mayo or what they call garlic aioli. The little neck clams were inedible. We also ordered the mixed salad which says it comes with a sherry vinaigrette, but it was Mayo based. Again, not what I expected.

My dining partner liked her Mac n cheese.

We had reservations at 12:30 on Friday. Arrived at 12 and asked to sit early. The hostess was on a call and didn't acknowledge us. She then seated us next to the only occupied table of 8 with people. When my wife asked to move, she had to check - so silly.
We were leaving town shortly so wanted to share some small plates and a paella. The waiter suggested it wouldn't be sufficient so we added a 3rd plate only to leave the meal unfinished. The food was underwhelming. I wouldn’t return.

Both specials (salmon & NY strip) we’re cooked to perfection. Service was also very good! Cocktails were good. All in all 5 out of 5 stars and will return next time we’re in town.

Great place! We love tapas and this place killed it. Sangria was good, the fabada was phenomenal and all of the items on the tapas menu were spot-on. And we couldn’t believe how affordable it was - great value fir the quality of the meal.

We were sat at a table right at the door leading to the outside dining area. Throughout the entire dinner waiters and customers were constantly going in and out. It was a rather chilly evening and a rush of cold air came in with each opening of the door. It ruined what should have been a great evening considering the great food and the amazing server we had.

Easily the best brunch, possibly ever. Food service, just everything about it was exceptional, especially considering the we went as part of a weekend anniversary celebration, and had never been there before. We were totally pleased.

We enjoyed our visit to Boca Bistro. We happened to schedule our reservation during the "Siesta" menu portion, between 3 and 5 pm, but were quite happy with the food and craft cocktail selections, as well as the values. Overall, would definitely recommend to friends!

Service was GREAT. We had 4 tapas, one of which had been newly added to the menu since I had been there last. I like that you add an occasional new offering while still keeping the forever favorites such as the stuffed dates. As many of us move to a healthier lifestyle, I find your bartenders to be very creative and accommodating in their creation of mocktails! Thank you! Love your restaurant.

Sadly the only great thing about our dining experience was the very professional waiter who took over waiting on us after being mostly ignored by our waitress. The food was over salted and yet hot and tasted good.

Boca Bistro was just ok. The sangria was good but definitely not the best I’ve had at a restaurant. Sadly, The Cheesecake Factory has a much better one.
For appetizers we had the chef’s selection of cheeses (good), pork belly (not well seasoned; and the rice and beans tasted like it came out of a box), grilled octopus (good, but this same dish is much better at Osteria Danny in Saratoga Springs), bacon wrapped dates (ok).

For dinner we had the Paella Mixta. Sadly, all of the seafood except for the shrimp and scallops were severely over cooked. The squid was tough and dry; the clams and mussels were awful….they were actually stuck to their shells and completely shriveled up). The rice was tasty and the vegetables were cooked nicely. There was barely any chicken in the dish. The chorizo was spicy and delicious but some pieces were also over cooked and dry. Timing is everything with paella and adding ingredients too early can spoil the dish.
Overall, for a total bill of $200 incl tip, we would not go here again. We have no problem spending money on food but if the quality is lacking, then we don’t go back.
Atmosphere was comfortable and the rustic design is attractive. Service was prompt and attentive.
