We ate here one evening between Xmas & New Year. Reserved via open table, the restaurant was absolutely packed. They only serve steaks, so don't go here if one of your party is wanting to eat anything other. The hanger steak and rib eye were both perfect, fries to die for, and the desserts are enormous - plenty big enough... More

Made a reservation on Open Table which went well enough. Arrived and seated with no problems and the entire experience started off well enough. Waiter arrived and took our order for our drinks with no help in recommendations for wine. Anyway, I knew what I wanted to drink and ordered and he returned with same and took our food order...

The Chicago bone in filet was the best I've ever had. The service has been perfect every time. The manager remembers me too. So welcoming. Thank you!

We had a business dinner at La Boca last week. It was my first time at the new location. I am from Argentina and I have to say that the steak was as good as the one I can get in my birth country. The service and the wines were excellent and overall it was a beautiful night with friends... More

Dined here with a group of 6 and we did the family style tasting menu. I forget how many courses, 6 or 7 or something like that and that is not even counting the sides that come along with the steaks. Only minor complaint is that there were only 3 empanadas so that was a little difficult to divide up... More

I happen to be walking to another local restaurant when I noticed La Boca an Argentina steakhouse. I sat at the bar and was promptly greeted by the barkeep. He presented me with wine and food menus. Another bartender took my drink and food order. I wasn't very hungry so I chose a plate of blood sausages and an arugula... More

We picked this restaurant from a website that highlighted the "Top Chef-New Orleans" showcase. We met friends there and were treated to an evening of great drinks, good wine and excellent food. The wait staff were knowledgeable and recommended the tasting menu of the day. Take the time in your schedule while visiting NOLA and enjoy this gem. We will... More

The atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice. I have been noticing that every place in New Orleans is loud and this place is more upscale and not as trashy as many of the places in New Orleans. The wine selection is wonderful. They have all Argentinian wines. They will give you a taste before you actually order so this... More

I found La Boca through Open Table as I was looking for a great steakhouse outside of the French Quarter. I thought about booking at Delmonico's but really wanted to try something new and different. That something was La Boca. Daniel, the sommelier, gave us a run down of the Argentinian red wines that we were considering. He did a... More

While I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner overall, I was surprised that my steak, the one that carries their name (Biff la Boca) was pretty tough. The flavor was good, it was juicy, but the texture was extremely chewy. On the other hand, my daughter's outside skirt steak was very tender & buttery, delicious. The side of flash-fried Brussels sprouts was... More
