Was lovely to have the "private" room for a 30th Birthday lunch. Food and drinks were all delicious.

Think Paintworks Bocabar much better! We are regulars there & decided to try this one out! Our ‘special’ cocktails were literally half a small glass of Prosecco & cherry liqueur with half a glass of froth for a staggering £8! When we questioned it - bar man (very unapologetically!) said ‘that’s how it comes - it’s the egg white!’ Very disappointing more than £1 a sip!!!! Pizzas ok but definitely not outstanding- cd not recommend to others as better around at same price! Usual friendly waitresses but nearly £200 for pizzas and a couple of cocktails each for 6 people - expect premium product. Happy to give Paintworks another go but sadly won’t be hurrying back here!

I had originally booked the wrong venue but one of your team sorted this after I handed in our menu choices the day before! The restaurant was quite quiet when we attended. Party of 7 and we all enjoyed the food. Most of us had the wraps, which were very filling! Would probably share next time with a side of chips.

Had a great day on Sunday celebrating my husband’s 60th Birthday. We were a party of 15 with 6 grandchildren. The Sunday roast was the best we’ve had in a long time & the children loved their meals too. It a lovely relaxed atmosphere and family friendly we would definitely recommend.

Visited Boca Bar on 4th March 2020 for lunch with two friends. Again great atmosphere, had previously booked, lovely table with fresh flowers in a vase - a nice touch. Service efficient and food arrived quickly, however no sauce on/with the Caesar salad, this was quickly rectified and the meal was delicious! Definitely coming back for the 6th time soon and looking forward to warmer nights when we can sit outside under the umbrellas.

We had a lovely evening. We were given the room out the back that we didn't even know was there but were so pleased as it was quieter then the main building. The food was delicious too! We will definitely be using again for a work social :)

I was not happy with the overall service I received, particularly when booking the table. I emailed to request making the table bigger and for more time and the response I received was not at all friendly. The person didn’t even use my name! On the day, I was told at 11.30am that we had to vacate the table at 11.55am even though I had booked it until 12pm. I had explained in advance that it was a business networking event and I do not think it’s acceptable to ask us to finish early. I have run the meeting in lots of other cafes around Bristol and that has never happened before. I explained all this on the day to someone who I took to be the manager but wanted to outline it all here too. I have chosen to not make this review public but I hope my feedback will be taken on board and changes to your customer service levels are made. An email to me explaining how would be appreciated.

Restaurant Response

Hi Dan, I'm really sorry to hear about your experience here at Bocabar. I've spoken to the person you were in communication with prior to your booking and they were upset to hear that their emails came across as unfriendly - in future they will be working on building up better rapport over email. In regards to you being asked to leave your table early it sounds to me like there was a breakdown in communication between the staff as some of them thought that we needed the table back earlier than we actually did in order to relay it for lunch - sometimes the build up to lunch can stress people out and lead to panicking. This is not acceptable and it was not fair for you to be hurried out the door before you needed to be. I really hope this doesn't deter you from returning and hosting these sort of events as we think our venue is really suitable and we try our best to be accommodating. I can assure you that if you do return it won't happen again and that the service will be better.

It's a really nice place with great staff and the vegan pizza is really good too. I wish I could have stayed there all day drinking wine until I had to be scraped off the floor and swept out the door at the end of the night only to lie there until the following late morning when I could have done it all again but I had to go back to work and sell my life to pay my rent and child maintenance.

This is my 3rd visit to Boca Bar in Finzels Reach. I am a big fan of the Boca-Bar in Brislington and was delighted to hear that you were opening at Finzels Reach. I recently arranged a party with yourselves and everyone told me that the venue, food and service was excellent. I am aware that a colleague of mine has recently booked space for their party. The ambience is great, food delicious and reasonably priced. Service and friendliness of staff very good. Have already booked for two more occasions!

We have young Children and in a previous visit on a Sunday you had your full childrens menu available. It did make a difference to us this weekend - as we had a a more limited choice. Great food, service and atmosphere though and will come again. Thanks. Guy.

Service was slow. We wanted more drinks and went to the bar in the end. Waited a long time to order dessert.
