We've been to this tapas restaurant many times, and are please to say that we had another wonderful dinner. We tried the seasonal Lamb Sliders, which were fantastic, and the Pecho de Res Cocido (5 hour braised beef brisket, bbq braise sauce, Yukon mashed, Espelette crème fraîche), which is always a favorite. With an extensive menu and great service, we... More

With the explosion of new restaurants in Worcester, we haven't visited some of our old favorites in a while. One Friday evening, we ventured back to Bocado and we were not disappointed. Service was friendly and helpful and each tapa was excellent, and served one at a time, at our request, so we could savor each bite. We know from... More

Haven't been in about a year and honestly was surprised I could get a reservation on Monday of Christmas week. I thought it would be mobbed. Instead at 7 pm, prime dinner hour, we arrived to a totally empty bar and restaurant less than 1/3 full. As always the kitchen is turning out terrific tapas, but service is seriously lacking....

A really nice selection of Tapas in downtown Worcester! I was here with my family and was pleasantly surprised with the excellent selection of really delicious Tapas. The setting is a restaurant and not a bar where you see the selections. The waiter was really helpful in making recommendations on what to choose, and how many plates would be enough... More

This is my second review of Bocado and I found it even better than the first time in 2015. The Bocado Experience (for 2 people) at $75.00 is a great way to sample several dishes. You will not go away hungry. Recommended from the Charcuteria y queso menu are Salchicha De Faisan which is pheasant sausage with a hint of... More

I am always amazed at how busy they can be but still keep up with their clientèle's needs. We had the autumn salad which was very good, then we enjoyed the 5 hour beef brisket-this was more than amazing! I would not hesitate to order this again next time. We always ask for their fantastic bread pudding to go. I... More

Take the tour for two. It's pricey but worth every cent!! You'll be stuffed and have leftovers for tomorrow. Skip the red wine sangria, at $25, it wasn't worth it. The food, however, is truly fantastic.

Brought family and friends here after an exhibit opening. Had a hard time deciding what to get; the perfect solution from our awesome waitress to try the $35 per person tapa experience. It was fantastic. Meat and cheese platter. Salad. Mussels and pork belly. Shrimp patty sliders. Steak and paella. Dessert. Sangaria. Wow so good!
