Delicious and seasonal tapas at La Boca. Very flavorful menu with lots of options. Smallish space so reservations are a good idea at peak times. Close to the Santa Fe plaza; easy walk. Very relaxing and delicious experience. Definitely recommend for authentic food.

Stumbled upon this hidden gem over the weekend for a late lunch. Food and service were excellent. Try the mushroom bruschetta appetizer as well as the squid ink pasta with shrimp and mussels.

Has to be one of the very best restaurants in Santa Fe. Everything we had will go my bucket list of food I want to eat again. Our group ordered 10 or 12 dishes and they were all very good, some even great.

I don't know about the tasting menu, we had dinner there once in May and it was wonderful. I don't think you can go wrong here. Make sure you have a reservation.

Opened in 2006 by 8 time James Beard Award Nominee, Chef James Campbell Caruso. La Boca has the feel of a lively European wine bar, featuring an extensive selection of carefully chosen Mediterranean and South American wines. Knowledgeable and animated staff graciously guide customers to the perfect wine to complement their meals. La Boca also prides itself on being an ambassador of Spanish sherry culture, transporting its guests to Cadiz in the crisp cool flavors of Fino, or the deep fig-essence of a Pedro Ximenez. Full to capacity almost every night since its opening, La Boca has been a hit with both locals and the world travelers that visit Santa Fe. La Boca has earned numerous awards both local and national, including the Santa Fe Reporter’s “Restaurant of the Year,” and the International Wine and Food Society’s “Award of Excellence.”
