First of all, I don’t write reviews. I have walked passed this restaurant millions of times, not thinking anything of it. A very discerning friend of mine recommended Bocado. I could not believe it! She told me that the meal was delicious and that her husband even enjoyed the meal.
I had lunch with my friend and it was the perfect lunch spot. Last night I had dinner there. In the middle of the pouring rain and pandemic, the staff was great and accommodating. The food was scrumptious.
Bocado is a gem and needs our support. Again, I do not write reviews. Bocado deserves one. I hope to be dining there again soon.
Outdoor seating only, so overhead heat lamps were used, but we wish the lamps were a little more powerful, as it was a cold day. Great location, delicious food with a lot of variety, and nice sized portions! Definitely recommend!
Staff, outdoor seating, and food were all excellent!! Will definitely be back! The Belgium waffles and fresh orange juice are a must: 10/10
Bocado was the perfect spot for outdoor lunch after a visit to the Met Museum. We arrived early and the staff quickly put together the table for 3 that we reserved. We had delicious burgers, wine, coffee and tea. Good food, served promptly, and reasonably priced, under heat lamps. (It was December 31 after all).
I want Bocado to stay in business because I love the restaurant and food and have celebrated many occasions there. I know times are hard, so hopefully this review will help them to get better.
I had to prep for a big meeting while I had someone doing work in my apt. I figured I’ll make a reservation for lunch and sit under the heaters in the winter. I wore my biggest coat with a hat and gloves.
When I arrived, I had to wait a while. No big deal, things happen. When I finally sit down, it’s FREEEZING. And the heaters are BS. I wanted to get up and walk somewhere else, but I had already waited like 15-20 min. I thought that once I have hot tea and food, I’ll warm up.
NOPE. I was freezing. The heaters didn’t work. The food I ordered came out disgusting. It tasted like it was just heated up (which it might always be, but it never tasted like that). My lunch with two cups of tea and a good tip came out to $40. ABSO-F-ING RIDICULOUS.
When I got up to go home, I was frozen. I ended up working under the blankets in my bed with the heater on full blast.
I hope my tip went to the waitstaff who are working hard through all of this. It can’t be easy. I feel bad. But if you’re going to say you have outdoor seating with heat lamps, do better. The experience was awful. Oh, and why didn’t I get a bread plate when the tables next to me did?
Anyway...we sadly will not go here for outdoor dining or delivery until you get things in a better place. It’s not worth the cost. Good luck.
We always enjoy Bocado - it is one of our favorites.
Neighborhood favorite. first time outdoors. everyone was excellent and we look forward to going back indoors. food and service superlative as usual
We love everything about Bocado - outdoor dining is comfortable and service is good.
Great for not fancy, good service, outdoor dining.
Today started no more indoor dining due to covid but it was nice. They had a cover outside so we didn’t get hit with rain and the food was excellent!
The place was very nice, classy and elegant. Maybe play some music but it doesn't have to be loud. Also many add margaritas to the menu instead of beer, wine and sangria. The sangria was very water down and not good.
Great server, delicious food and even though our original wine choice was not in stock, the substituted wine was very nice. The only thing that slightly detracted from our evening was the fact that there was a woman next to us who was on her cell phone the entire time for at least an hour. Even when she finished her dinner she stayed an extra 30 minutes to talk on the phone. It’s very hard not to hear a one-sided conversation. But that’s not really the restaurants fault I guess. They cannot afford to ask diners to behave nicely… They are depending on the good will of the few diners willing to go out these days.
I’ve been here a few times. The outside tables in the structures have heat. The food has always been wonderful. I love the mushroom flatbread.
If you sit outdoor, dress up warmer. Even with the heaters, it is still winter outside. Nice place for meeting friends and sharing a meal.
The food was excellent and the service overall was very good. We were seated outside for Sunday brunch and the tables were spaced far enough apart, though it wasn't full. The prices were typical for the city. Overall I recommend and would eat here again, for sure.
Fabulous food, beverages and service
Great service, great ambiance, lovely outdoor seating set up with heaters by every table.
Great place to meet a friend and catch up. The service was very attentive.
I only had an appetizer so I can’t say overall if the meal was good or not. I would go back there again, however.
One of my favorites! outdoor dining is pleasant and weather accommodating with the new heaters installed!
Decent food and nice menu. A little high in price but restaurants are having such difficulties right now — we all need to help if we want them around and tip well!
The food was great but I think that they were a bit understaffed although that did not hamper our experience.
Fantastic service Felt safe Food made exactly right. Love this
Picked this place solely on location and was very happy that it was really good as well as a convenient location to meet. Will definitely be back!
Really great menu, did not disappoint! Will definitely return.
The server was great. I originally had scheduled outdoor seating (by accident) and when I told the server, without hesitation accommodate us inside.
Service of him bringing us napkins and adjusting tables so that we would be more comfortable was superb! This was our first time here and definitely not our last. Food was excellent, plated perfectly and temperature of food was excellent. Overall, the service was outstanding which makes the meal excellent.
We were seated as we arrived which was good. However, once our order was taken by our waitress, she never returned to check on us to determine if we needed anything or just to see if we were ok. The food was delivered by someone else and we had to ask a different wait staff for the check. I did observe that the other wait staff were very attentive to their assigned tables but our waitress was a magician, she disappeared.
Excellent food and service in a great location - perfect for brunch or lunch. We tried a salad and a chicken halloumi sandwich with some rose - all were very good. Outdoor seating well organized.
bocado is my favorite spot in the whole city!!
Way too cold
Excellent food, experience, and service. There are good options for vegetarians.
My boyfriend and I had a great experience at Bocado! The food was great and the outdoor dining experience was really nice.
The service was great and the food was delicious. This was my first time there and will definitely be back.
Always reliable my fav is the Asian chicken saks👍🎉
Went here for a Sunday brunch with their outdoor seating. The food was delicious and service was great! Highly recommend!
Went on a date here and while the food was pretty good, the experience was not. Our server was nice, but we had a bigger issue. An SUV slammed into the outdoor dining batterie, right where we were sitting. It vibrated and definitely was scary. The guests around us checked on us, the driver checked on us, but the staff never came over to us to see if we were okay. I found that odd, and sort of unsettling to be honest. The manager yelled at the driver to come over to us to apologize, but he never did his part. I understand it wasn’t the establishment’s fault, but this is about overall customer experience. You have to keep that in mind. I also thought we’d at least get a free drink from that, but nope! The entire bill came to us. Hesitate before booking.
This is one of the best brunch restaurants in upper east.
Felt very safe eating inside. First time here and found the food delicious and the service was great. I will definitely be back
Staff very accommodating, good safety practices. Food delicious!!
The food was delicious and fresh and the service was excellent! The egg quinoa and kale dish was delicious healthy and filling and the poached egg and avocado was fresh and delicious. They even have good coffee for brunch.
First time and great experience the steak and frites were amazing! Definitely will come here again!
