I am so glad that my wife and I decided to cancel or original plans and visit this establishment. We are celebrating five years of marriage and elected to dine here for our actual celebration meal. First, let us talk decor. We walked in and were sat promptly after a call ahead. The feel of the place felt like a... More

While the menu doesn't vary, they do have daily specials. No matter what you order, the meal is always perfectly prepared and delicious. The sushi shrimp dumplings are better than the dumplings served at the Bento Box! Always great service too!

My family ate at Boca Bay tonight for my birthday dinner. When making the reservation for 4 people it was clearly stated that we were there to celebrate a birthday. No one at the restaurant made mention of the birthday. We started at the bar as the restaurant offers Happy Hour appetizers from 5-7. The calamari was plentiful and sat... More

We had a group of 13, many many different appetizers, entrees and desserts...everything was fantastic! Most of us ordered the grouper special and I think it's the best I have ever had. The service was wonderful and I'll definitely be back the next time I am in Wilmington.

Let's just say the best part of the meal was the bread and herb butter. I ordered the Lobster Risotto, it had zero flavor, zero! It was pretty, filled with chopped tomato, leeks, and a grilled tomato- but it tasted like unflavored oatmeal. I just ate the lobster tail on top. My husband had spicy shrimp and tuna sushi roll....blah... More

The dark wood with white tablecloths felt very ship like and I felt very relaxed. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu . Their bread was amazing, warm and delicious. I ordered the seafood trio which was shrimp, scallops, and flounder and came with sides of succotash and a kind of cheesy scalloped potatoes. All was excellent, something I... More

Good standby for dinner anytime and brunch has a good variety. There are usually children at brunch and I have seen them there for dinner, but at dinnertime, as accommodating as they are, children may do better elsewhere.

Food has always been great, the chairs are very uncomfortable and hurt our backs and those of our guests. Too bad!
