Well done ambiance. Very romantic setting. Outside seating would be great as well if it was not for the searing heat. Find a mild evening and it would be great. Our server (Jose) was excellent. He was the second best server/waiter we had ever experienced...More

Best restaurant in Hickory, very good wine selection. Food choice includes appetizers, small tapas plates and some dinner plates offering steak, fish & chicken. Been here several times and never disappointed.

I attended a business dinner with about 25 other guest. The wait staff was great at keeping the wine flowing and appetizers replenished. I ordered the Filet Mignon. It was cooked perfectly and had a great flavor.

Wonderful Morrocan food in the Piedmont! Chef/owner Yussuf keeps consistently delivering top quality locally sourced fresh food that will satisfy the tastebuds of those in the mood for something different (without having to book a trip). The small dishes are especially interesting.

My wife and I were going to Chimney Rock on July 25, 2018 when she mentioned Boca for dinner. We mapped it and went. Walked in and I felt under-dressed. But that did not squelch the hostess. She seated us at a nice table location...More
