    Wow what a fantastic steak - possibly the best I have ever had. It’s not cheap but you are paying for top quality so think of it as a special treat unless you have deep pockets. The service was great - staff genuinely wanted to please and receive feedback (good and not so good). Where I marked down was ambiance but I was eating early (5.30pm) so hardly anyone there. Also although starter and mains great, the desert choice less so - a bit like Chinese restaurants where you feel you’re getting something from the freezer rather than bespoke. Overall, a great meal if you want a top notch steak and I will be going again next time I am in Watford.

    Ate here a over a year ago, loved it. Utterly disappointed with the food and service last night. - Staff rude & abrupt, didnt seem to care. - Charged for a starter when requesting a dip for the Turkish bread ordered - Several of the meat options at a restaurant grill not available

    I booked via open table which I’ve never used before and never been to this restaurant either. Wasn’t a recommendation i just fancied some steak! Upon arriving we were greeted by friendly accommodating staff Place was clean and it wasn’t cold like in most restaurants which I absolutely hate. The service was on point didn’t have to wait to be served. The food was quick but well made and cooked and tasted absolutely Devine! I am sceptical as most steak places don’t cook the steak as you’d like it and it never has any flavour but everything we ordered was delicious I mean I rarely write reviews but had to this time and I definitely will be going back for sure for occasions and or just to get some really tasty food! Complimentary Turkish tea is given after your meal but they ask you first before just handing it out which is nice and I am not a tea drinker but this was also great! Bill for 3 people came to over £230 that was hummus starters three steak meals and 2 drinks each but honestly I didn’t mind paying that because it’s very rare that a restaurant serves food that has any taste nowadays. Overall great first experience I just hope it’s the same when we go back 👌🏼

    Valentine's day with a bad experience at Boga steakhouse watford. We booked for 7:30 pm, we went in and were immediately seated at a table, after 20 minutes a member of staff came to take our order, after about 10 minutes they came with the drinks, and there we were waiting for the starters we had ordered together. with the order, we watched several couples leave the place after waiting for a long time, after 2 hours, I asked the member of staff who had taken the order from us if it was taking too long, he just repeatedly said I know I know I know, and with his back facing me. We immediately got up from the table and I kindly went to the counter and told them to cancel our order, and we left. A place like this, especially these days, should have the doors locked, and also choose friendly and not rude employees.

    I have been to Boga around thee to four times. I have always enjoyed the food and the service has been good. However I went out on this occasion on my birthday, it was Saturday night and the restaurant was very busy. We were seated at 1930 and we ordered our food shortly after. Our food did not arrive for nearly two hours later. We were not told by the restaurant how long the wait would be when we came in, otherwise we would have gone elsewhere. The table sat next to us told us they also waited two hours for the food and that the order they placed was mistook by the restaurant. I could even see people who had been seated after us having their food served before ours. It was very loud in the restaurant. I think that they should employ more staff especially for a weekend and be honest with their guests as to wait times. I am debating as to whether I will return.

    We chose a steak house rather than a burger restaurant. My husband and grandson both ordered a t bone and I had a sirloin. My husbands t bone didn’t have any fillet on it it was just gristle. He asked the waiter to rectify it and they cooked him a separate fillet which was fair enough. My grandson’s didn’t seem too bad although a bit gristly too and my sirloin was cold. The staff were nice enough but we wouldn’t go back.

    We just didn’t have a good experience overall, it all started when we try to order our dinner, we asked for garlic bread and they didn’t have bread. We order 3 Rib-eyes medium and they delivered them well done and the worst part was that they had only other 3 tables on the whole place and it took us more than 50min. to receive our order. We really just wanted to get out of there. The price versus the quality is not what you expect. Definitely will not recommend.

    Visiting Watford for new year. Booked boga and the meal was lovely. 5 of us visited all really enjoyed our meal. Service was good and drink were great. Even thought they didn't have espresso martinis on the menu they happily made us these cocktails. I would recommend and would return.

    We had high expectations but unfortunately we had to return two of the meats we had ordered as they were over cooked. The steak cake with what I can only say was x1 small baby potatoes cut into half. It really wasn’t great. We did return the meat and they were very apologetic but it spoiled the vibe.

    Arrived very early but the restaurant was quiet and we were seated. I asked about allergies and if the steaks come with spices but the waitress wasn’t sure what I meant and tried to reassure me there wouldn’t be spices. The steak was lovely and tender however the baby potatoes did come smothered in spices along with the mushrooms and asparagus. So my only carbs that went with the steak was mayo haha.

    Overall experience was disappointing. The menu looked nice but we ordered chicken wings with blue cheese and it was more like melted American cheese and they said blue cheese is mixed in as it doesn’t melt (it didn’t have a single bit of blue in it) I then asked for the onion flower on there side dishes and she said o we don’t do them anymore it’s an old menu. At it was my partners birthday I treated him to the £50 tomahawk steak and it was certainly not a £50 steak at all. On top of all of that I had to get my own plates as these were not given to us for our starter (even though there were only about 6 diners in the whole restaurant) last eat when our mains were bought out we still had all our dirty starter plates in front of us and I ended up having to move them out the way for our main. Wouldn’t recommend or go back unfortunately

    Was looking forward to trying this restaurant. Look great from the website and outside as I pass it sometimes. Cocktail bar is the best looking thing about the place to be honest. I ordered a Caesar Salad at £16 .. it was a bit of shredded lettuce with a million croutons on it, tomato and cucumber (so not a caesar salad at all) and worst of all some sort of dressing that was squirted on in droves drowning it. Salad was limp and warm and tasted awful so it was sent back. The main course meat dishes were ok, but so expensive for and really not worth the very hight prices paid. It really was an attempt to be upmarket however, you seriously can't charge £34 for a mediocre rib-eye and then carry a basket of Heinz squeezy condiments onto the table like you're at a cafe ... it was really very disappointing and very, very overpriced. We could have eaten at Prime steakhouse for the same price and got a proper 5 star experience. An attempt at making a posh kebab house, but sadly failed! It's unfortunate, but we will never grace its doors again

    Myself and my husband enjoyed a lovely dinner here to celebrate his birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, and birthday dessert that was on the house from the lovely waitress Afsane after telling her my husband didn’t want a big fuss. I would highly recommend dining here, I couldn’t give more thanks to Afsane for making our experience so enjoyable. Thank you again.

    My wife's T-bone steak was overcooked and had lots of dried oregano on it, mushroom sauce wasn't great, cheesy mushroom had 1 portobello mushroom and like 300 grams of goat cheese on it, not balanced, wouldn't recommend it. On the other hand, my tomahawk steak was perfectly cooked, nice taste. Server was nice and honest, didn't recommend the tiramisu as it wasn't really fresh. For the price we expected a better experience.

    Service wasn’t great. The buffalo wings came with a sauce but it wasn’t a blue cheese sauce - it was a thick mayo. They brought us main course before we had our starters taken away. We had to wait at least 5 mins after all our mains arrived for our friends to get theirs. I had the lamb shank which was tasteless and actually the sauce tasted like bisto gravy. The restaurant was beautifully decorated I wouldn’t go back
