We came here for the restaurant week dinner menu. It's $55 per person and you get to taste a their signature dishes. We've been here twice and I think overall the food was great but the portion was a bit small compared to other restaurant week menus, which is understandable bc it's one Michelin star. Overall, the food were delicious but only if the portion was a bit bigger it would've been a five star for me.
Boka is a great boutique restaurant. We opted to order a bunch of starters and a few mains instead of the tasting menu. We had the ricotta gnocchi, the smoked beats, short rib, and the marinated cucumbers. All of them were great. The Environment is dark and moody, which is a nice touch for any upscale dinner spot!
Went for the first time for restaurant week since it was 1 of 2 Michelin 1 Star restaurants on the list. I was very impressed with the artistry with the plating of the dishes as well as the flavors. A plus how the bartenders were very knowledgeable on what wines paired well with each dish. Will be back to try their main menu items and other wine pairings.

I came here for dinner to try the seven course meal as well as the wine pairing. It was incredible. My brother and I opted to get the duck add on as well as the wine pairing for that. The pace was great, service was awesome, and the food was out of this world. Yes, it’s super pricy, but it was so worth it to do for a special occasion.
Overall experience was good, but food didnt meet my expectation. Duck was a bit too sweet to my taste, and fish was very softly melting but a bit blend. I asked food to be less salty overall, but still felt quite salty.
I had my graduation dinner here. The staff made me feels so special (especially our server Augustus). My family got the tasting menu and everything was delicious. The beef and duck were perfectly cooked and all the sauces were amazing, they even made an effort to avoid foods I didn’t like and the substitutions were fantastic! I could not recommend Boka more for any occasion!
My boyfriend and I celebrated our 4th Anniversary at Boka and immensely enjoyed their 8 course meal. We felt extra special in the little details from the celebratory glass of sparkling wine to the personalized menu. Our waiter was very attentive, knowledgeable and handy with a light for my photos. Portion sizes were substantial as we left pretty full. The ricotta agnolotti with truffles should definitely have a permanent home on their menu. I will say the only disappointing course was the cucumbers. They were incredibly underwhelming, boring and very basic. Also, I would have preferred to have one more meat dish, though the Waygu was a decent size. Overall, lovely food experience in Chicago.
A really great place. Dishes were extremely delicious for both the big food lovers and those who prefer a small variety of food.
We had been celebrating our anniversary here and Boka made everything possible to make our dinner really personalized for just us.
Their level of service is certainly remarkable. If there is something that might not be to your liking, they will go above and beyond to ensure you will be fully satisfied with the experience.
I certainly will visit this restaurant again.
Thank you, Boka.
