Often restaurants that are part of hotels are not so great. But this is one is excellent. Great selection and service. They have a decent ambiance. In times of good weather, they have a very ice sidewalk cafe.

We're staying at the hotel across the road and have to say this restaurant has more to offer for breakfast than our hotels restaurant. Coffee was good, scrambled eggs was good and the servings were generous without being excessive. Service wasn't perhaps as friendly as other places but nothing to complain about.

Service could have been better and menu could have had more choices, but the food was very good and served quickly, which was nice. It's centrally located and does not require too much advance planning, which fit our schedule well.

So we wanted to try some of the restaurants close to where we were staying and came to Boka. We ordered cheese curds, calamari, fish and chips and drinks. I dont know how exactly sesame seeds battered calamari topped with bell peppers and a side of chimichurri sauce all mixed together was a great idea... but we decided to try... More

I came here for a drink after flying in on Christmas Day. They had a prixe fixe menu, so I didn't order food...but the bartender whipped me up a delicious Boulevardier. Bartender was really nice and did a good job of conversing with everyone there. The atmosphere is nice with the lights in the wall subtly changing color...and the music... More

We went to Boka with a group of 10 on a home Seahawk game day. Our waitress, Destini was very accommodating for our large bachelorette group even though we only made reservations that morning. She graciously split checks and the food was amazing. Thank you!

This was our last meal before heading to the airport and also the worst experience of the trip. We went for breakfast on a Saturday. Even though the place was empty, only 3 tables for 2 servers, we had extremely slow service, a botched order, and just mediocre food. $60 for 2 bloodys (don’t get the ‘spicy’, it just tastes...

Popped in for a couple drinks and appetizer. Hubby and I shared the scallops. $19 for 1.5 scallops (1 cut in half and half of another). Delicious but would not order again. Staff was nice, services was good. Don't think I will return - I can get more value down the street.

I have eaten at this location three time (2 breakfasts and 1 dinner). The staff are friendly and quick to respond. The setting is modern and daily newspapers are available for your reading enjoyment in the morning and at night. There is the front section for individuals and groups of up to 4. In the back the seating is more... More
