BOCA Restobar & Grill
This place DOES NOT CARE about your health or well-being, and will pack in as many people as they possibly can/will overbook the seats they have. AWFUL!
We arrived on time for our 7:00 reservation, and told by a young man that it would be another 10 to 15 mins.; I confirmed, and replied: "OK, I'll come back in 15" (as it seemed they were very busy)! I should have known they'd be overbooked/running way behind, because these reservations (and they had A LOT of open spots) were some of the only ones showing availability on OpenTable...on a Sat...with less than 2 hours notice...on Cap. Hill.
We came back at 7:15, but the entrance/"waiting area" was packed with people sitting in lined up chairs, as well as standing around, waiting for their table; this blocked any ability to get in, or out, so I waited outside for them to be seated (another 5 mins)...I finally made my way in to let an older gentleman (Manager? Owner?) know I had come back to check in on my 7:00 reservation. He proceeded to tell me (with his mask down around his neck/chin area no less!) that it was going to be longer, maybe another 20 mins., explaining that he was "made to remove 6 tables the night before" in order to stay open. I replied "well, I'm not surprised - it's really crowded with the tables you DO have, and these two tables next to us are super closer to each other". He did not like my observation, and began ranting, telling me he was at 100% capacity, and attempting to tell me the various work-arounds (the 2 two-tops outside didn't count towards capacity) ....blah, blah, blah....It was at that point, me and my husband walked out and had a lovely dinner on Queen Anne at Betty.
Take-Away...if something seems too good to be true (lots of open reservations, last min. on a Saturday, etc..), it probably is. While the food/menu looked decent, the service, and lack of basic mask wearing protocol, made this a hard pass for me/my husband.
Found this special place in Capital Hill for dining with open Ed doors to outside for outdoor dining that’s indoor. Food was delicious & service was great. Will definitely go back.
I made a reservation at 7:30 pm, but the owner told us that he refuses to take reservations and asked us to leave.
They were closed even when I received the confirmation of my reservation
The food was just perfect! The place was also really good, and service was exceptional!
Great place try the empanadas
The best Argentinian restaurant in Seattle. Great service
We keep coming back to Boca. The food, service and overall experience is always phenomenal. It’s great for date nights, to bring family when they’re in town, to meet up with friends. Love how friendly & diligent the staff are. Love this place and highly recommend.
There was not 6 feet of distance between different dining groups which made me very uncomfortable.
Server was very kind and friendly but we felt rushed the entire time. He brought dessert before we were done with entrees and the table was still full of dishes. No ask if we wanted coffee or more drinks. He tried to leave the check twice before we were done. I’m sad because I wanted this place to be my neighborhood stop.
Also, when I made the rez, I had asked for a candle in the dessert for bday celebration. No acknowledgment of us even having a rez, even though I told him when we walked in.
I don’t care how friendly the person is, service muse be better. I likely will not be back. Bummer.
Restaurant was at capacity when we walked in. One of the servers had his masks not covering nose, while every seat in the restaurant was filled. I don't know about the capacity rules, but It just seems way too overly packed. Was annoyed that we didn't get seated to 20 minutes. Left the restaurant hungry and went next door.
Even walking in you know it is going to be a good experience with the eclectic decor, warm colors, and they rhythmic background music. Went here on a whim for my birthday and it was a wonderful selection. Great portion of food for the price! And everything we at was delicious. I was shocked to find the restaurant serves morcilla - a real birthday surprise. It was not exactly what I had expected compared to what is served in Spain, less firm, but the taste was perfect.
Only one waiter for the entire restaurant which delayed the service slightly but he was extremely efficient. I will be going again.
The food we got was excellent, but they were out of the dish I specifically came for
On Saturday, October 24, I and two friends had dinner at Boca. Drinks, food, and service were great. We also really liked the way the place is decorated. We strongly recommend Boca. We hope to visit again in the future.
My husband and I loved the food! We went for dinner, but were pleasantly surprised we made it to happy hour! We had the calamari with aoili, 2 kinds of empanada and ceviche for appetizers. For dinner, we had skirt steak with chimichurri and their pulpo. EVERYTHING WAS SO DELICIOUS, paired with their Zucchardi Malbec. Definitely recommend and will be coming back!
Amazing lunch as usual
First time going was on Valentine's and I'm not sure BOCA was prepared. We waited at the door without anyone coming to check in for probably 5-10min. Luckily we got a seat at the bar because many others waited at the door for quite a while. Drinks were awesome. Ceviche was very good. Steaks were not up to par at all but I have a feeling the chefs were very behind and doing their best considering the circumstances. We will give it another chance on a non-holiday but were a little disappointed for our first time there.
Loved the food and the service!
Food and table location was excellent. Service was slow, had to ask for refills and check. We will be back though, food was excellent!
Outstanding service and authentic food. You will love this place...
BOCA never disappoints! Wonderful atmosphere, great food, friendly, efficient service - all things add up to a fun evening out!
I feel fortunate to have BOCA as a neighborhood restaurant option.
The food was delicious and the service is outstanding. Tango dancing and Buenos Aires vibe.
I absolutely recommend this place
The food was pretty authentic Argentine however I would have preferred less cheese on my Milansa and a thicker piece of meat. The fries were delicious. The chimicurri was authentic and the empanadas were juicy!
Awesome place! Excellent food, great staff even when it was packed they still took time to properly serve and take care of us, and good drinks!
Great time, we were there for NYE and there were tango performers. So fun and unexpected. We enjoyed our dinner but our server kept forgetting us. Would have definitely bought more drinks if he had come by more regularly. We were there 3 hours and saw our server 5 times including when he brought food.
Absolutely amazing, wholesome, all in all great time. Good place to grab happy hour, go on a date, meet up with friends, does get quite busy and very energetic as far as noise level goes!
Dinner with friends
Great food, great drinks, great service and great prices.
Definitely coming back when we’re in town again, this is a true Argentinian restaurant in Seattle.
The food and flavors were authentic. Owner was very gracious. Staff was very accommodating. Highly recommend calamari. Cooked perfectly
Great food better people
Very noisy, overbooked party ( which was early in arriving; but others kept arriving late; strained the staffing with excessive last moment demands! And rowdy to the extent of obnoxiousness for which the owner apologized and comped 1of our meals)
We were very happy with most of our menu items, especially the lamb, and we love it when the owner walks around and makes sure everyone is happy. But the acoustics are really harsh in such a wide-open cave, and it was jarringly loud on a night that seemed busy, but our server said it was slow. He was the wort part of the whole experience. We tried to explain four times that we reserved through Open Table and he should mark us as present, but he kept saying not to worry, it wasn't busy. When he finally "heard" us, he didn't know what Open Table was. He said he would bring us water, but he never did. We received several incorrect dishes, and his whole demeanor was nonchalant frat boy, unlike the waiter we overheard next to us, who took his job seriously and explained the menu the way we would have liked to have heard about it. Not really excited about revisiting, even though the lamb was fantastic.
Great food! Loved it!
