    Great location+food+happy hr+staff+patio seating! All these greats, make Cafe Boa an ideal place for singles or dates. If single, go during happy hr & sit at bar or long table (for maximum exposure).

    Awesome Place for brunch on the weekends, having fresh food makes all the difference. Its one of the few places I've had an eggs benedict I liked. That and the Mediterranean omelette are awesome.

    We had the Voodoo Penne and Fettuccine Saltimboca w Sweet Breads. Pasta was fresh and fantastic. Don't load up on the fries. Although they were really good. Pumkin Spice Macaroons were a nice bite.

    Wow we agree this is one the finest restaurants we have ever eaten at!!!👍 try the gnocchi - pillows from heaven!! Ask for Alendria she is the fiancé of the chef.

    This place is horrible! The waitstaff and manager were so bad. The food and menu was unexpectedly terrible! Took us 2hrs to get dinner! An 1hr just to get our wine! To top it they added 20% gratuity

    Marc Fernandez ♊ · February 20, 2011

    Expensive, but definitely worth it. The menu changes often, usually when they get a new specialty chef in so there's always a fantastic variety of options.

    Liz Lemon · April 3, 2011
  • Leah S.

    An intimate, rustic, exposed brick type-perfect for dates. The menu has seasonal specialties. try the Toasted Gnocchi with browned butter and fried egg.

    The food is delicious, the wine list is wonderful and the service is great. One complaint: I went in June and it was way too hot inside, 87 degrees!

    The new menu is pretty much amazing. Had the fettucine with sweetbreads and sage cream and it went perfectly with the "bloodstone" australian shiraz.

    Excellent wine (Malbec). The Pinot was ok. Not Boa's fault, just my faulty pairing choice. Happy new year and bring on the spicy

    Grab a group of friends and go on a Sunday when it’s nice out so you can take advantage of the half-price pitchers of Sangria!

    Good fresh, local food, creative dishes. Shrimp Diablo is fantastic, but service...way slow. We were there on a Friday night, though.

    Caprese is AMAZING. Definitely a great snack in terms of size though--be sure you're in the mood for something light.

    Skip this place- very slow service, food was bleh, not worth it at all. Better off going down the street to Med Fresh or Five Guys :)

    All the food was amazing which made up for the bad service. Seriously the food was amazing!

    Gratuity is automatically calculated in the bill, which explains why the service couldn't possibly get any worse...

    Tiramisu offers a huge portion and real mascarpone. Great dessert

    Don't get the lobster bisque! I get what they are trying to do with it but I can't recommend it.

    Awful service and food was cold. Servers have a serious attitude problem. Over charged also for my bill.

    Pricey drinks, but they give a generous pour and they have proper bartenders.

    The fruit plate is a treat. Perfectly ripened fruit. Simply delicious.

    Don't do it! Raw food, took over an hour to get our undercooked meals! Not worth you penny?
