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..”
Crowded, interesting decor. Nice idea for food but very few of all the things we tried as a group were worth repeating. Too bad.
Excellent unhurried meal and experience. Great service and food.
Good food, nice atmosphere
Table was extremely wobbly and needed to be propped up with coasters (all tables on the dining floor were in the same condition)
Restaurant has limited its wine by the glass menu over the last few months, making it hard to choose a wine to enjoy with dinner.
This restaurant clearly isn’t following covid restrictions on capacity or distancing, every table and booth was in use as well as seats at the bar.

Always a great place to enjoy some delicious food and drinks! The music is bomb too !
Love the new menu items and some old favourites - especially the Moroccan lamb stew and the new seafood dish. All around great night!
Live music was great, food as always, was amazing! My favourite is Gregory’s famous chicken sandwich! Perfect place for date night
Came for a New Year’s Eve dinner. Arrived early in the evening so it was nice and quiet at first but towards the end of our dinner more people were arriving. Had the 4 course special dinner which was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the pina colada tuna tartar and the chocolate lava cake desert but everything else was great too. A bit pricey for the portions you are given compared to other local restaurants, but I think it was reasonable and left with a full (but not full too full) belly!
The food was great and the drinks . Enjoyed it to the fullest.
Great food, drinks and service! Loved the moose spring rolls.
Service was friendly and efficient. The food came out quickly, so ordering tapas in rounds was easy, and made for a nice long dinner. Lots of choice for all ranges of tastes.
Great food, great atmosphere and great service. One of our favourite restaurants.
Always a very enjoyable experience. We go there all the time
Food and atmosphere were great. Service was great to start but slacked a little towards end. Great evening overall.
Great night with family enjoying a variety of appetizers! The tuna tartare and seared tuna both awesome!
Lovely experience and awesome food.
Lovely Tapas spot in St. John. Food is fresh, tastes are sharp, service great. Definitely recommend.
Good food and great service. Very cozy. I will definitely go back again.
A fabulous place for those who love to share! The food is incredible. Cool atmosphere, great live music and fantastic service. Highly recommend.
Awesome as usual! Delish food!!
While the live music was nice, it did make it difficult to have a conversation. Overall it was an enjoyable experience where sharing is encouraged! Food and service were really good.
Always amazing food and service one of my favourite spots in the city.
Atmosphere is perfect to relax after a long week.
A wonderful atmosphere with very attentive staff. The live music was also a bonus, the girl that was singing Friday night was excellent! Only downside was that we were expecting a bit more to our food. Don't get me wrong, the food was to die for, but unfortunately it just wasn't enough and with the price point we expected more of a meal. Me and my two other friends ordered the chicken burger which was delicious, but was only a burger and nothing for a side (with the price point we expected something like fries atleast). Though, my other friend had a rice bowl which was to die for (and a great portion). The drinks were fairly priced & DELISH!!
A very interesting place for a small group to get together to experience a little touch of Spain and its special treats. Totally enjoyed our experience and especially the sangria!!! Cheers👍
Great location for a nice meal and different from the usual fare.
Well managed for cov19 restrictions. Clean. Good wine choices. Interesting non traditional choices in food. Excellent margaritas
