We've been to La Boca several times over the years and found it wonderful. But our luncheon there on Wednesday was so disappointing. The wait staff was inattentive and sloppy. Our meal was so delayed it was obvious the waiter had forgotten to put our order in. Tables that came in after us had gotten their wine and finished their... More

I had the black pasta...my wife had a salad. Would give each an A. We also shared a Cumbre Elevated IPA beer...delicious. We would go back here readily. Wish it were in the Midwest!

This delightful restaurant was perfect for our last night in Santa Fe. The food was delicious and the portions were just right. Our waiter was very helpful and helped us pick out wines for dinner and dessert.

As tourists, we are always asking locals about their favorite places to eat. Whenever we mentioned La Boca, the response was universally positive about "the new tapas restaurant". We had reservations for four and were seated almost immediately. The server was very helpful and recommended that 4 guests normally order between 8 and 12 plates. We ordered 7 different tapas...

The greeter insisted on seating us at a tiny table which barely provided room enough for the food and required that dishes were consolidated and removed early. This was despite the fact that several larger tables were available and the restaurant was not very busy. That being said, the food we had was good (our desert was, in fact, heavenly).... More

Such a great find on vacation!. Incredible small plates - lots of local produce, mixture of favors and textures. We had the artichokes with goat cheese; the Heirloom tomatoes, Watermelon and feta cheese salad; tacos de la Boca and Patatos Bravos - all super delicious! Soon after we arrived, we noticed some of the specials of the day were disappearing... More

The high notes... we visited this restaurant quite a few times in the last 6 months. We enjoy the format which allows you to share small plates with each other. The food is super fresh and has nice layers of flavor. I have yet to try something I don't like and pretty much everything I've eaten is top shelf. It... More

Visited this place for a glass of wine and a tapa. They said since we didn't have a reservation that we needed to be gone within an hour. (It's a Thursday at 5pm by the way) So we were seated a foot away from the next table, and felt like we had to whisper. We quickly ordered our food and... More

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner. It's a cool little spot, right outside of the Historic Santa Fe Plaza. The food was just delicious. The service on point as well. Excellent recommendations and wine pairings. I recommend the rabbit and short ribs - so good. We made a last minute reservation and they were so accommodating when they didn't have to be.... More

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.”
