I don't understand why there isn't more hype around this restaurant - it is far superior to other places that get more press. The menu is solid and built to please pretty much any palate. My family and friends, ranging from foodie to meat-and-potatoes, all love this place. My enthusiasm has not gone unnoticed - more than half of the times I've visited Boka, my table has received appetizers and desserts compliments of the house. Every time I've dined here my party has been treated so warmly, not to sound corny, but like we were special guests of the owner or chef (even though we weren't). When I went there for my birthday, they brought out a beautiful dessert plate with ""Happy Birthday"" written in chocolate on the plate. The grilled bartlett pear salad, Chinese black rice (creamy and rich - not what you'd expect from a dish with this name), macaroni and cheese with edamame, and vegetable tart are what I'd recommend. Others I've dined with raved about the venison (""not gamey at all"") and beef tenderloin. One of the most friendly, knowledgeable and helpful sommeliers I've ever encountered has been here. The decor is understated and beautiful and the music is at just the right volume. I've never had anything but a fantastic experience here and always look forward to returning.
Pros: Incredible food, warm friendly service, great ambience, knowledgeable helpful sommelier
Cons: Bar in middle of dining areas
