Be careful what you read, some people are not accurately depicting this restaurant. First, it is not in Clifton, it is in Northside, one of the most vibrant, interesting and up and coming urban areas of Cincinnati. Perhaps if you need everything to be pretty and preppy you should stick to Hyde park and the suburbs. Ample parking in the lot behind the restaurant, not just on the street.
That being said, Boca has been one of my favorites for years, even before David Falk took over ownership. The menu is concise and always delicious. Each course is always beautifully prepared and presented. It's our ""must do"" every couple of months.
Its location is part of its charm. THank goodness CIncinnati has a fantastic restaurant in a funky part of town. I've had New Yorkers tell me it's like being in NYC, and they'd never dream they were in NY.
