Wonderful food, with the best fried, somewhat squashed plantain with a sauce that was perfect for dipping.
The steak tips were excellent, as were the accompaniments.
The owners were right there, and very friendly. The music was exciting, with a full crowd that clearly was enjoying the camraderie.

Pros: Very tasty, with exciting atmosphere

Cons: bit crowded, but that's part of the fun!

This is a great restaurant that people need to know about. I've eaten there or done take out close to 10 times. The food is consistently excellent, the portions are generous, it is very affordable and the food is extremely fresh and well cooked. The staff is so warm and friendly and seem like they genuinely care - a nice change.
We particularly enjoy the garlic fish (tilapia) that is served with a salsa and lettuce, rice/beans and yuca (like big crunchy french fries, and the steak tips are out of this world (even for the steak tip lovers!). The atmosphere is light and fun, but more people need to know how good it is so there are more people in there!

Cons: Parking could possibly be difficult but we've never had a problem

The headline says it all. Truly wonderful food and wonderful people. I am a steak tip connoisseur and I will drive for a great meal. Just so happens I don't have to drive far. Boca's marinated steak tips are fabulous. I can't recommend this place enough. Gotta have it.

I was excited when I saw this place, it advertises that it serves Costa Rican cuisine. Mostly what it serves is college students - and loud, drunk ones at that. The staff can't answer basic questions about the menu, which is too bad because the menu itself is pretty uninformative. It would have been nice to know the tacos are fried (and who fries tacos?). It got two stars for a good location and for serving fried plantains.

As far as I've come to learn, "boca" means something similar to "tapas", little appetizer portions. The food here is really good! You get small portions of things, but the prices are amazing, so you can order a couple things and share amongst yourselves. We've tried the empanadas, fries, gallo pintos,all the deserts, and various other things and everything was great. Comfortable decor and very festive. Seems kinda tiki-inspired. The drinks are well made and priced. For a group of 4 with multiple drinks per person, I think our bill was like 70 bucks, which is not bad for a night out! The staff and owner are super friendly and gracious. I'd definitely recommend it to friends.

Having been to Costa Rica more than once, I can say that this restaurant does Costa Rican food no justice. I'm not even sure it is Costa Rican food. The portions are very small and they come with bizarre sides (like a pineapple salad and chips and salsa). The salsa is not good--it is cold and does not have much flavor. The decor is nice and the staff very nice and friendly, but they are going to have to give better portions and make better food if they want to last.

Pros: friendly staff, nicely decorated

Cons: small portions, not good food and not 'authentic' Costa Rican.
