excellent food, courteous and efficient service in a pleasant setting
Will be a "neighborhood gem" (when the neighborhood is built!). Great food with equally as good service. Perfect location - will be even better when the area is developed. We always arrive by boat (small fee for dock space - and worth it). Sightly "industrial" ambiance - but I get it. Good bar with many TV's for sporting events. Outside seating is great during the warmer months. Highly recommend.
Food is delicious but service very poor. We had to get up multiple times to get our waitress to actually do her job and water forget about it -don't bother asking because you won't get it.
Been there 5 times and was excellent every time, so we brought the whole family. Wasn't good this time.
Fish Taco - something was wrong with it, had it before, tasted like the batter was bad or made wrong. Two people thought was bad.
Steak - ok, but I'm spoiled by dry aged now, so portion good, flavor/quality just ok. Needs a coating of salt or something. Grilling was done nicely.
Apple crisp - was mushy ontop. Got another, same. Never had a crisp that was mushy.
Was maxed out, so maybe understaffed and they were cordial but several of us thought they didn't care. Prior waither from time before was stellar gentleman.
We aren't that tough of a crowd. I'm sure it's tough running restaurant consistently, all respect. WhenI spend nearly $45 a person, kinda high expectations.
My Sister’s Birthday
First time there. Brunch. Not a fan of the "industrial" look inside. Cement floors, metal tables. I can see that this place would be booming in the summer especially with the younger crowd. Beautiful view because they are right on the water.
I probably will try again when the weather is warmer so that we could eat outside on their expansive patio.
Wonderful food, wonderful service.
Excellent service. Oyster platter was great. Steak sandwich was okay. Setting outstanding.
Our waiter Claire was beyond great..Helped us decide on what food to get etc and everything she told Us try was so good. Very professional and checked on us regularly. She made experience very enjoyable and it was my fiances Birthday which she found out at the end and of she recommended the chocolate cake for desert 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾🎊🎉
Met a friend for appetizers and drinks. Great wine list and the seafood and lamb lollipops were excelllent. Service great from Jose. We will be back!
The food was delicious! Waiter was attentive. Very very expensive shrimp cocktail. Octopus very tasty!
We had heard the service was slow but that was not our experience at all. Jose was very attentive and the service staff made sure we had everything we needed.
The food was very good and presented beautifully. My stuffed clams were not heavy or bready. There were actual pieces of clam in the stuffing and the size of the clams was just right; they were not tough or chewy. There are three in an order which is normally perfect for sharing, but a bit more stuffing would have been nice. My blackened salmon was crusty on the outside and cooked perfectly and unbelievably moist. They offer fried shrimp and fried clams so I thought maybe could accommodate a combination, but sadly, no.
There were five of us at dinner and all of the appetizers and dinner portions were generous, except my husband’s three small stuffed shrimp were overshadowed by a monster baked potato.
Side dishes are ala carte. My grilled asparagus looked great and was not over-charred or undercooked, but I needed a steak knife to cut them because the pieces were large and a bit tough.
We saw the Smokin Bacon appetizer at another table; it looked delicious and was served vertically!
The interior is sleek and industrial so at night, when you don’t get the benefit of a bright harbor view, it seemed a little dark and cold.
I think the outside could use better signage. Boca is in a multi-use building so, in the dark, we correctly assumed the main entrance would get us to the restaurant. The parking lot is to the side of the entrance and there was nothing on the front door with the restaurant logo.
As a Bridgeport native, it was nice to see the area being revitalized and the prices reflect a more upscale experience. I would go back again.
Very delicious food. I was surprised how bright it was in the restaurant. It felt more like a cafeteria than a nice restaurant.
We sat on the patio and the weather was as good as our meal. Menu was great, service was excellent!
Nice place. Some hiccups with the entrees. The fresh pasta is very delicate and they obviously left my entree a bit too long. The food looked like and tasted noodle mash or baby food. Quite disappointed but they did made it right again. But still if you are changing 36 a dish, this is not a good mistake.
This was my first time dining here and I have to say the food was excellent.
Service was great and the food was excellent
Boca Oyster bar did not disappoint. Waitress was lovely and the food was great. Ambience was nice and the prices are great!
Was excited to try this place bc their menu looks amazing. There were 4 of us and thought food was just okay. Pricey for the type of service you get, I was expecting more fine dining.
All three of us ordered the Boca Burger. They were cooked to perfection and very tasty. We had terrific service too. All in all an enjoyable experience.
great food, great service and nice outside eating area on the water
Gorgeous spot. The food and service are better than need be, considering the location.
Nice place, will go back when in Bridgeport
Jose was a great waiter, greeted us in a timely manner…we ordered steak tips MEDIUM RARE and they came out MEDIUM WELL but the meat was good quality and it was tasty nonetheless.
After dinner we went to the bar and had a drink. The bartender would not make eye contact with us and wasn’t coming to us so I had to get up and go to the other side of the bar where she was chatting with a server and I asked for 2 drinks. She said she would bring them around to us. Her name was Tara, she was the least friendliest person I’ve ever met who tends a bar. The people we were sitting next to agreed she was extremely unpersonable to them as well and they had just spent over 300.00 on 2 meals and a bottle of wine…
excellent food, superb service, very pleasant ambiance
Food is as always very good and we will continue to frequent this establishment
Food was excellent and atmosphere was very enjoyable.
It was a beautiful evening and we ate outside by the water. We were very disappointed though because 2 dinners were terribly overcooked. The lamb chops were ordered pink and they were brought charred. The clam strips were also overcooked and rubbery. We were treating a couple to dinner, and it was their first time at Boca so it resulted in a less than pleasant memory.
Still waiting for someone to bring the fresh pepper.
We sat down and waited 20 min before the waitress to come by, appetizers arrived before drinks, she brought the wrong wine.. food was cold, simple, no flavor! Poor service, we order more drinks and she totally forgot.. so we ask for the check and leave! It was really a bad experience!
The table was in the middle of nowhere! A little rushed for a 8:15 reservation
Will go back. BUT I will say NO to a poor space to dine.
Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Lunch special was a good value if not ordering any items with an up charge. Was expecting a more meat in the lobster roll given the price. Good distancing of outdoor tables.
Made reservations and met a friend for Sunday for brunch at 1pm and was able to get a prime table on the deck. It was fun to watch the Port Jeff ferries and assorted yachts come and go. Food and service was excellent. It got crowded fast because it was a beautiful day. Definitely going again.
We got the BIG raw platter and it was more than enough for the two of us and got a bottle for the table. The environment was phenomenal and the people were super nice!
Enzo was our waiter and did a great job with recommendations since it was our first time there. What a beautiful location. The music came on around 1PM and it wasn't too loud to have a conversation with him playing. Tuna tartare and lobster eggs benedict-highly recommended!!
Large portions and beautiful scenery.
The food was great.
Margaritas were so,so. Food was excellent. Service was good . Ambiance was very good. Music was good but a bit loud, at least at our table. Prior to coming we were told the restaurant was pricy. We thought it was a reasonable value. Overall worth a return visit.
Great place and amazing food
We love this place! Just a beautiful day Saturday and we were so looking forward to great food and drinks. Everything is always on point. We had the Scallops and Lollipop Chops as appetizers - so delicious. Stuffed Shrimp and the Boca Burger were shared for our early dinner. Peach Tea and the Tito's Cosmo were perfect. Can't wait to go back. The band was great too!
We had a great meal at Boca. The live band was wonderful, service as always was great, including the boat side docking service.
The best part by far was the food. Every meal at our table was exceptional! I look forward to coming again soon.
