Das mit einem Michelin-Stern ausgezeichnete Restaurant Boka ist seit 2003 eine feste Institution in Sachen Speisen in Chicago. Im Januar 2014 trat Chef Lee Wolen als Executive Chef und Geschäftspartner bei, nachdem das Restaurant einer größeren Renovierung unterzogen wurde. Seit seiner Zeit Im Boka wurden Kritiker darauf aufmerksam. Phil Vettel von der Chicago Tribune und die Eater Chicago ernannten beide Lee als "Koch des Jahres 2014". Zuletzt wurde Lee 2015 als "Koch des Jahres" ernannt und das Boka Restaurant erhielt 2015 in Chicago bei den begehrten Jean Banchet Awards die Auszeichnung "Restaurant des Jahres". Die Gerichte im Boka umfassen moderne, amerikanische Speisen, die auf Saisonalität und so viele lokale Zutaten wie möglich basieren. Der Pasty Chef Meg Galus trat der Küche im Boka im Jahr 2015 bei und bietet einen nahtlosen Übergang zwischen herzhaften und süßen Speisen, die die Nutzung von hervorragenden, hochwertigen Zutaten widerspiegeln und nach Wolen sorgfältig vorbereitet und aufbereitet werden.

For the price, I wouldn't say it's worth it. Some of the meals were just not good, but I would refrain from saying anything in case you get scorned. The seafood dishes were delicious, but the vegetarian options left a lot to be desired. If you want to pay $65 for a $20 bottle of wine, go for it.

This is a special restaurant. Very pleasant e.g quiet, with great service. Obviously this is not inexpensive, but for a special occasion it is appropriately priced.

BOKA was an excellent choice- again- for restaurant week and the service was excellent. Frankly, we thought the entree portion was smaller this year, but the food was wonderful.

Although we were disappointed with our food experience during restaurant week, we would definitely go back again for their normal tasting menu. The restaurant week menu was bland and lacking flavor despite the nice presentation. We've been to Boka for the regular tasting menu on several occasions and it does not disappoint.

Beautiful decor and spacious seating lead to a private and classy ambience. We had the tasting menu. Unfortunately, the only courses that we enjoyed were the sashimi starters and the desert (the first and last course).
While everything else was not horrible, the same heavy, savoury flavour was replicated on each succeeding course. It was even worse that yuzu was used on so many of the dishes that we could always expect the server to introduce yuzu as an ingredient when introducing the courses. Therefore, about 40% through the course, the tasting experience was already feeling somewhat monotonous and uninspiring. This lack of variety surprised me as I had seen stunning reviews on the quality of its tasting menu.
With that said, the last desert course was delicious.

Food and service were both perfect! One of us lamented that they did not have a particular beer, and they went out and bought it(and it was complementary). The guest was thrilled. A very special experience. Our favorite restaurant in Chicago.

We went to Boka to celebrate my partner's birthday. From the moment we walked in the door, we were treated like royalty. Every detail was impeccable. Our server was incredibly knowledgable and engaged us throughout the meal as we asked questions about each dish. We ordered the tasting menu and regular wine parings. The food was complex and extremely flavorful. And given that it was my partner's birthday, we left having had more than we ordered (lots of thoughtful 'extras' throughout the evening was icing on the cake to a perfect celebration)! Huge complements to the chef. At the end of our meal, we felt compelled to ask to speak with the management, because we could not have been happier with our experience. Can't wait to experience this restaurant and others in the Boka restaurant group again soon!

I ordered the dry aged duck for my entree, which was definitely overcooked and the duck skin tasted extremely bitter. Can’t believe this is the signature dish on the menu. Basically, I leftover all the duck skins and only finished the duck meat. Very unpleasant experience.

The dinner was lovey, and the service was excellent. However, we were seated next to a family of 4 (two questionably active children) on one side, and a business meeting of three on the other. Guess I was expecting a certain crowd to be in attendance, and wound up with commotion on either side. I was shocked that the restaurant knew we had a birthday, yet we were still seated in such an undesirable seats. The restaurant wasn’t full. This could have been avoided.

Nonetheless, I tipped 20% on ~$375 and likely won’t be back.

Best,
Jim

It was New Years Eve, 7 course dinner, 4 of the courses were excellent, 3 average, the pasta was Luke warm and lacked flavor, the fish also cool instead of warm and had a strong dish taste. My duck was very fatty, my husbands was better.

Our experience at Boka was superb. The food, every course, was flawless. The timing of the courses was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I am embarrassed it took me 10 years of living in Chicago to go here. We will be back and for the tasting menu. In addition it was my husbands birthday and the small touches they added, including the complimentary dessert were greatly appreciated.
