Delicious cocktails. Friendly service.
Amazing service, drinks, food and atmosphere.
Great food, great service but chose to eat outside on a night that was too cold.
Friendly and attentive staff, fabulous sangria and endless delicious tapas. Boca is becoming on of my favourite go to spots, especially on a nice summer day on their lovely deck.
small portions for price, slow service albeit very friendly waitress
Yummy food and good service. A little overpriced though.
But the girl who served us we really sweet.
Really nice ambiance and the food is great. A favourite place to go.
I normally am a HUGE fan of Boca. Last evening we had a reservation for a table for 7 people. A few of us arrived first and placed a light order. An hour later the table placed a larger order, despite not having received the first order. 90 minutes later we still didn't have the food we ordered, despite asking numerous times. Overall we all received food at various times spanning 45 mins. One of our friends got her tacos long after everyone else was finished. The server gave us bills and walked away, not returning for more than 20 minutes. The service was the worst we've ever received. Unfortunately a lot of our friends had been there just that 1 time and have been clear that they won't return based on last nights service.
The kitchen was backed up and a few of the food items ran out after we ordered, so we had to choose different items. However they did provide a free desert as compensation.
Menu was interesting and varied. All 4 of us enjoyed our meal and the service.
It was amazing! The food was outstanding. We ordered the next day for lunch even. And the staff was so friendly. Can’t wait to go back
Everything was amazing, great place to catch up. Drinks and food were delicious. Service was excellent. Highly recommended.
Great service and awesome food:)
First time there last night and food was fantastic and service top notch. Music a little loud but all good! I'll be back again and again
Food came quickly and was delicious; service was incredibly friendly. No complaints at all.
Excellent Food and Service, Fast and attentive waiter Heather made some suggestion and we were pleased with the selections. Overall good experience and I would recommend. Great music and atmosphere,
Well worth the visit. Service is fantastic and food is delicious. Great venue and music isn't overpowering, fills the lull in the conversation, but doesn't require shouting.
Fantastic service, tasty food and great drinks. Highly recommend their paella, meat balls and pork belly. The red sangria and sangria cake were perfect additions to our meal.
The food and service was amazing. The waitress was so nice and everything came out so fast. I will definitely be going back and recommending this restaurant to friends.
Great food. Wine was pricey. Got served the expensive stuff. Great spot. Will return, but take care we get the wine we ordered. Food and service were excellent otherwise.
My wife and I have been to Boca 4 times now in the past 5 weeks and are never disappointed. Every dish is exceptional and the prices are reasonable considering the quality of the food. We had the Campo Viejo Gran Riserva for $69 which is very good. It sells for more than half that amount at the liquor store. Most other restaurants in St Johns triple the liquor store price! We’ll be back again soon!!
Delicious food. Great service.
Cool dining area.
Definitely going again.
our friend is gluten sensitive and sometimes the bread was laid down without telling us what was what. A previous time we ate there the server asked us if we’d like all gluten free bread and we weren’t given that option this time. That would have made her time there more relaxing as she was afraid to eat some things.
Great food, reasonable prices and the comedy show was great !
This is a great place for a tasty brunch. We shared the Eggs Bene and the Fish cakes. Plenty for two. The Caesars were tasty and helped to wash it all down. Great job Boca!
Very fa St and friendly
First time patron but definitely will be back to sample the regular menu. Mother’s Day brunch was delicious and the atmosphere was relaxed and very comfortable.
Great food and a great time, as usual!
This is a hard place to review, because we had a really fun time overall, but there are elements that are lacking when you really think about it. Generally, I would recommend it and I probably would go again. The atmosphere overall is probably the best part, the Spanish theme and music is colorful and lively, there was a live piano player later in the evening which was excellent, and it there were a lot of people there, all having a good time. The food is good and we really enjoyed it, but it is not necessarily anything to write home about. It is a tapas place and there is a lot of variability in quality - some of the dishes were great, while some were nothing special. There are a lot of fish and meat dishes, but not many vegetable ones, which I think is an area for improvement. The cocktails and sangria are really good, but the sangria is a little on the expensive side. a jog of sangria is $30 and it's not very big, my friend and I easily drank two of them, and still had a couple of cocktails besides, so that's really adds up, BUT that is not too different from most other restaurants, drinking alcohol at restaurants is just a fortune and there is not really any getting around that. The food is also a little pricey, the tapas are around $15 each and they are not very big, you will probably need around 3 per person. There were 3 in our party and our bill, with tax and tip was around $420. The service was just ok, we were often looking around for our server to ask for more drinks. Also I would recommend not ordering your dishes all at once, they come really fast and it would be nicer to enjoy a few at a time. Overall, I would describe it as overpriced but a good time, and I probably would go there again.
We went for a few drinks and snacky bits, it was so good and insanely fast service! I will say it was very noisy, we could barely hear eachother, but that was due to the guests and not the restaurant itself! :)
We had the "Taste of Spain" and it was excellent. A real treat. Will definitely go back.
Another great evening at Boca Tapa. Really enjoy the food and the service was excellent. Thanks so much.
Party of four celebrating son's 29th birthday. The table we were seated at initially had a speaker right over our table so difficult for my mother in law to hear. As soon as we asked, our server moved us immediately to a much quieter table. Food was outstanding as was the service. Fifth time at Boca. Always consistent. Bravo!
The broken Diet Coke machine put a delay on drinks but otherwise food was delicious and amazing!! If you’re a person on a budget looking to leave very overly full I’d choose another place but this restaurant lives up to its name and style of eating. Delicious, yummy picky plates!
The food and service was awesome!
Great night out for folks who have something to celebrate (like the end of the most recent lockdown). Great food, great service, fun atmosphere.
As a Spanish person I was very unimpressed with the quality of the food. The website menu does not correlate with the actual menu in the restaurant. Even my Canadian friends thought the food tasted very poorly. I was expecting more from a “Spanish restaurant..”
