Michelin starred Boka Restaurant has been a fixture in Chicago dining since 2003. In January 2014, Chef Lee Wolen joined as Executive Chef/Partner after the restaurant underwent a major renovation. Since his time at Boka, critics have taken notice. Phil Vettel of Chicago Tribune and Eater Chicago both named Lee as “2014 Chef of the Year.” Most recently, Lee was named 2015 “Chef of the Year." Boka’s food features contemporary, American cuisine, focusing on seasonality and sourcing as many local ingredients as possible.
What Insiders Are Saying
Boka serves fancy contemporary American food, but it still manages to be cool and fun despite being nice and expensive.
We had a great time at Boka during our recent visit to Chicago. Dinner got us out of the regular tourist district (easily accessible by the red line from said district) and we were amply rewarded with distinguished service in a relaxed setting and an over the top culinary experience. Don't miss the chance to savor Boka.
The food, the service, the atmosphere were all amazing!
Great experience ! Outstanding Tasting Menu !
One of the 10 best meals I have had in a rather long life. Very friendly staff, a great experience overall.
Great food great area and great service would recommend this place to others
Some great dishes some average some misses. So-so service. Staff was not particularly engaging or informative but was polite and otherwise attentive.
One of the few restaurants I go back to when there are so many to chose from in Chicago. Never a misstep, service excellent, food outstanding. Expensive but so worth every bite. Love this place!
I found this place to be tremendous. The Duck is amazing.
Elegant yet casual.
Amazing food, outstanding service great ambience. It is expensive but relaxed and totally worth it.
We had theater tickets to Steppenwolf. Our waiter arranged to deliver our tickets from will call to our table. Amazing service! Thank you!
Really great restaurant. The food was outstanding. The service was on point. The music had a good vibe. And the ambiance was excellent
excellent food, fantastic mix of drinks and food and very good service -- it is somewhat pricey but well worth it.
the food was wonderful and the service was excellent.
Absolutely delicious. Beautiful presentation and the service was great. A slight expensive for your everyday date night or friends get-together, but totally worth it!
Great venue, great food and great service
This gem was amazing. We were very impressed with the food, ambiance and our waiter, Graham (service was excellent). Try the ricotta dumplings .. to die for!
Fantasic restaurant serving amazing food with attentive, knowledable and helpful staff. We went for our second anniversary and they gave us a personalised menu card with the message "happy 2nd anniversary" on the front. Lovely touch!
We were celebrating our 26th anniversary, and Boka gave us the perfect experience. From the food and service to the atmosphere and special touches, everything was perfect. I would highly recommend visiting this wonderful spot!
The fold was not warm that stated on the menu that was suppose to be.
Told the host about that and nothing was done to rectify the situation
My friend ordered the bree and it tasted expired. She fell ill the next day and we told Boka over the phone and again nothing was rectified other than a simple sorry.
The place received many great reviews and menu look worth coming however this experience was not a great one.
Thanks for an amazing dinner!
This was the most impressive meal I've ever had. The service was impeccable, and the food was just as good.
Beautiful decor and ambiance, but the quality of the food fell short.
Muy caro, platos con poco sabor, poca comida, y el ambiente con personas del mismo género dándose besos. Arrepentido de ir a este lugar. Nunca regreso.
Love this cute restaurant for the decor and high caliber food experience
Best meal ever. Get the Duck.
Excellent food and environment. We were a party of six for a business meeting, and everybody was extremely satisfied.
Great food. Creative without the confusion that many restaurants offer with their 'fusion' menus. Will visit when I come back to Chicago again.
Another stunning experience and amazing meal. Thank you to the extraordinary Boka team for always going above and beyond and creating such memorable culinary adventures. You all make life better!
For the price for the Tasting menu thought the food would be more flavorful and amazing but it was not. Not a good value for what we paid for
Great! Always an awesome experience!
It was outstanding in all aspects - food - service - wine ! Highly recommend.
We were there to celebrate our 15th anniversary. The service and food was amazing! Staff were attentive and really pleasant. We had the tasting menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. Boka created a beautiful memory of our 15th anniversary and we would definitely be back.
Amazing experience and great service.
Amazing food and fantastic service. Would recommend to everyone. Great experience.
Great food, server is very knowledgeable and kind. Well attention to detail
The food was outstanding and the service was prompt. Very fancy but not stressful.
Amazing as always! Non-pretentious, cozy with great service. We come here regularly for these reasons. Food is equal to or better than restaurants with 3 Michelin Stars.
