OMG – thay have the best steak i have ever had & i have had alot of steaks in my time. thanks bocca for the good food & desserts to die for! ill be back sooooon!
Great Steak house – I am in love with the avocado egg rolls at this place!! I also love the tapanade they bring with the butter and bread.
Never going back EVER again. – I will never go here again. I made a reservation a month ahead for Valentines Day. I requested either a booth or corner table. I was told that I would get one or the other.
I get there to check in. I see my name on the reservation sheet with the word corner on it. We were ushered to our table which was (no exaggeration) 2 feet wide and about 2 1/2 feet long. It was a VERY VERY small table (even for me, and i'm only 5'8 140lbs). Also, the way they set it up was there was MAYBE a 2 foot walkway between tables. You're actually sitting closer to the person on the other table than the person you're with. Not wanting to cause any commotion, I whispered in the waiter's ear that I had reserved a corner table. He apologized and said this is all they had. Right as he left, I sat down and saw 2 tables on the corner that had a "reserved" sign on it. Before I could call the person that sat us down, they brought over people to sit on those spots. Not wanting to ruin the night, I let it slide.
We were NOT the only unhappy couple there. As a matter of fact I did not see one happy couple. I heard a man with his wife/gf 2 tables over (which was very very very close to us) complaining to their waiter that he had called twice and that they told him there was live music. The waiter said maybe it was our other location. The man said "i called twice!!", and the waiter just shrugged and walked away. I saw 2 separate sets of couples walk in, get seated, look around with a look of "WTF" on their faces and walked out. I saw a lady ask for water from the same waiter 3 times before she got it.
I ordered my steak RARE and got it WELL DONE. (I did not complain, as I NEVER complain to people that serve me my food).
I would not recommend this place even to my enemy.
misleading customer – We hosted a party for 60 guests at Bocca Steakhouse. We paid a large sum of money to have an open bar at the event. Within the following days, we found out that a vast majority of our guests had paid for their alcoholic beverages. Therefore, Bocca Steakhouse double-charged the alcohol.
bocca steakhouse is not reliable!!!
great Friday family night out – i took out the family for dinner at about 7pm on Friday night at the suggestion of one of our neighbors. This place has a band that lets the kids get up on stage and sing songs with them. The parking was very convenient and not expensive. The place seemed to be filled with locals and everybody was friendly and having fun. It's a fun place in addition to having great food. The kabobs were great and the hummous and baba gannoush may be the best I've had. We should have ordered this variety appitizer plate that the people at the next table had. The bar looked interesting and was pretty full. Even the wife loved it. We will go back later without the kids sometime soon.
good hummus though – First off, parked my own car for a valet that i paid for. Secondly, being mediterranean myself, food was tasteless except for the hummus. Staff was unfriendly, they barely cracked a smile. Overall, bad experience and would not go back.
it was the best hummous i ever had – the chicken schnitzel was perfect and the people were friendly but the hummous was the best i've ever had anywhere
expecting Greek or Middle Eastern food I was surprised by great Isreali food in a supper club atmosphere – taken there by a friend and expected kabobs & hummus but was surprisedf by the upscale bar, food (had a great steak & hummus!) and the band. would go back again later in the evening as if it was an Isreali nightclub. people were nice and had a lot of fun
Good food, very casual – This is a fun place for a group lunch. Food is good- great variety. Kind of needs to be cleaned up. It has a very casual feel with picnic style table and chairs.
Fun night out. – I generally despise live music while I eat, but Tempo is a big exception. Here, you may see the last un-ironic lounge act in town put a Mediterranean spin on standards and classics. Plus, the food is quite good. The service is friendly and helpful. This is a great place for birthdays or group outings.
